Re: Mass ego

Thank you mistral. About a year ago I planned to make that video for the Sept. 11th anniversary and started taking photos of old ships etc. for the project. I had written a draft of it many times. I emailed it to my daughter who teaches H.S. Senior English. She said it was the best thing I ever wrot...

Mass ego

Brother and Sister site members, We are about to engage in the memorial, here in NY, of the Sept. 11th attack on the World Trade Center. I've been giving it a lot of thought for some time now. Tolle has given me great help with seeing ego as a powerful force in myself and humankind as well. Personal...

Oneness on 5th Ave.

Dear Tolle Site members: I haven't posted on the site in some time. But I'm moved to relate this event to you. Often I can connect deeply with a person through their facial expressions but of course most of humanity has that ability in varying degrees. But sometimes the experience for me is quite ac...

Re: PON and Christianity

Hi Nutkins2 I can relate to what you have posted. I too was born and raised Christian, Catholic actually. And it has been a challenge to expand or grow from it; for growth, I've discovered, is what it really is, slight though it may be in my case. Some things were difficult, especially the issue of ...

Re: Comparative planetary and stellar sizes

Jouneymates Regarding the potential of Multiverse discussed above. Here's an explanation, in laymen's terms, of what's going on in Geneva. I found it very interesting. We may be finding the infinitesimal entrance to the "Grand Canyons", limitlessly full of what we call Universe: Be well, Presentlyby...

Re: Crucifixion

Journeymates An interesting book along these lines is, "Misquoting Jesus." I can't remember the author or refer to it, because I gave it to someone. It tells how the early scribes were chosen; not many people were literate. How mistakes were made through the centuries in transcribing the previous sc...

Re: Orgasm, an opening into the divine?

Journeymates What do all these words I'm unloading on you below have to do with the big O? It's all about the moment. To really Be in any moment. It's actually all just one moment and to live all of it is bliss. All of the moment, in every experience, can be powerful if we just let it happen, welcom...

Re: How to fully accept yourself?

A Name is a Label Sometimes a person needing help because he's down need only help others. One may say, "Wait a minute, I'm the one who needs help." It may sound contradictory but it works. You say you are "talented, fully capable of doing what I put my mind to" Maybe try bringing some joy to others...

Re: A tiny bit of clarity

Regarding fear. If someone asked me, "Is this the bus to Cleveland?" I wouldn't respond to him in fine Clintonesque, "That depends on what you mean "is" is. I might say, "No, that's the bus for Peoria; I know because I've been on that frightful bus." We'd be talking at a mind level. We wouldn't need...

I'm considering reading "Buddha" by Deepak Chopra. No one has mentioned it. Has anyone read it? What did you think of it?

Re: How you know it's christmas

Suzanne and other teachers on this site: Yes, the sounds of Christmas bells at an Omaha mall were a little different this year as rapid-fire AK 47 rounds reverberated in the air as well. Cordite scents of gunpowder mingled with the aroma of pine needles and Santa-red puddles splashed upon the floors...

Re: Experimenting with Consciousness

Suzanne Regarding my quote about the archer, you said, "OK. That's a keeper." I think you said that, because it resonates with you. Something deep inside you, something eternal, knows this to be true. I think most of us on this site feel that way about what Eckhart Tolle says in The Power of Now. I ...

Re: Experimenting with Consciousness

Thank you dubhasa. This may seem off subject but shappy did ask us to add our own "practical realizations". It is about the process of doing that. Actually, sometimes I hesitate to post an experience or practical realization as I feel it doesn't mesh well with the more casually written, though insig...
