It doesn’t matter what the words are, its what they signify. Are there really any right or wrong words Apparently there is significance to a great many people or we would not have the religious division we now have in this world. I like to think that I’m equally at home talking about reality in the...

I guess I would rather read or listen to something that is just as powerful and says the same thing without the "God' and gender identification. To be honest with you, I could have very easily latched onto that book had I gotten a hold of it before Tolle's work, but I personally needed to let go of ...

I do not understand why 'God" had to be referred as a “he” for any reason whatsoever. No, student you are not digging yourself into a whole. I don't recall saying anywhere that I was offended. I said above that I did not understand why.... I loved one of your earlier posts because it is beautiful. ...

These religions though emanating from masters soon donned other clothing and became moneymaking and controlling entities I agree with you OnlyNow. Unfortunately, if the world is ever going to become a place of non-violence all of us must evolve away from the personal God mentality, or we're stuck. ...

I agree heidi. When you start making God into a personal being with powers to do things, it give many the illusion that God, a personal being, can control what happens in this world. Forms come and go, and life goes on without labels. "Why does God allow bad things to happen!" Children often ask me ...

help

I was so poised to go and get the audiobook A Course in Miracles, which is the first time I have ever been intrigued enough to go and get something else other than Eckhart's work at this time. I found a book on audible.com called Secrets of the Immortal: Advanced Teachings from A Course in Miracle a...

To my horror, I am going to have to agree with you ninjin. :shock: I honestly don't know why the journalist had to post her religion for all to see either. There is always tons of articles floating around is cyberspace to promote anyone's agenda. I am glad you found it Webwanderer, thanks for sharin...

LOL

What I bought into was that celibacy was the/a path to enlightenment Reminds me of a story I and a friend of mine were discussing celibacy and religion. My friend was horrified at the idea of celibacy even for priests since she adores men. Her comment was, "If all men practiced celibacy, we women w...

recurring dreams of threatening alligators. It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out they were related to my relationships with women and my resistance to certain issues I did not see that analogy at all. I don't understand how you made the connection between alligators and women. I am pract...

All of these comments are helping a lot. Thank you WebW and Agnie.. When Web said I was being impatient, he hit the nail on the head in my waking hours. I keep having the same pathetic dreams of abandonment. I have been working on accepting what is in several areas of my life without complaining and...

Read The New Earth. That will give you perspective on why people are involved in this kind of behavior. It is also a matter of awakening, which is catching on slowly!

Do night dreams reveal our true level of consciousness?

I was wondering if anyone who has felt that their unconscious dreams still reveal the same old egoic mind patterns that used to keep them prisoner in the waking hours? I am finding that to be the case with me. So many of my fears play out using the same pathetic egoic arguments I used to use before....

Old stuff really

This information was presented in a social psychology class I took in college many years ago. It sounds like the ego to me. Nothing new here it seems, unless I am missing something. :)

What role does shedding tears have in the Now?

I was wondering what place shedding tears has in a conscious person? Ever since reading ANE and trying to accept what is, I was wondering, would there ever be a time when tears would have a benefit, or would it always have something to do with an experience with the pain body, or allowing the pain t...
