Re: Eckhart on Suicide

I hope you don't think I am trying to attack your faith or belief. You wrote about the recent scientific finding from the Gran Sasso's scientists on which they did call for peer review and validation. I merely brought your attention to the more recent related news article about another group of sci...

Re: What is Consciousness?

"A monumentally helpful point for all of us to "get straight" is the simple, basic and very gentle fact that awareness-consciousness-is God's action not the personal tool of an ego."

Re: Eckhart on Suicide

Recently, the scientists working with the particle Accelerator discovered there is something faster than light (light is matter, everything is made of light, information). With this latest discovery it means that there is something that stands behind the world of matter, something ‘moving faster’ t...

Re: Eckhart on Suicide

WW, first of all thank you for all your really excellent responses here and also for that posting that neat video of Plato’s Cave, that was very nice. Speaking of the shadow reminded me of how my teacher expressed it using the shadow analogy. That it is the shadow that leads to the tree. The shadow ...

Re: Killing Ego ... a Guru Subterfuge ?

However, I have to say, there is a letting go of 'who you are not' which is the limited view of your self. Then to see the Grand Totally Real Self which is the Unbound Self, Intelligent Self. There is a kind of letting go, but not a 'killing' or getting rid of anything but letting of the false conce...

Re: Killing Ego ... a Guru Subterfuge ?

I have often thought this same thing. It's always felt wrong to believe the ego is to be gotten rid of. It's wrong. It's like a distortion of the Truth, somehow. Now, I don't know why people in non-duality think they have to get rid of the ego, but it seems to be what people think they must do--- It...

Re: What is Consciousness?

That's a lot of Capitol Letters! :lol: Yes, I guess I am always trying to distinguish that Everything (everything) is in the First Person :D Personal is Supernal and therefore Divine. Anyway, its sort of my artistic way to express in words Something Omniscient... which, as we all know, is nearly im...

Re: What is Consciousness?

And keep in mind, that does not make life unreal, that does not make us 'unreal' or things 'not real'....It is quite the opposite, Life is All That Is Real and It 'belongs' To God, God is The One and Only Reality, Self Awareness going on here... All That Is Reality, and God and Reality is The Same O...

Re: What is Consciousness?

Right, God and God's Knowing...There is only Knowing. Divine Mind Knowing Its Self. There is no tangible matter "out there" ...there is nothing 'real' in the sense of objective 'things' out there. Without The Mind of God nothing would exist at all. Things are 'figments of God's imagination'. Life is...

Re: Background

I think you are on to one of the most important insights in our process of Self discovery and understanding 'What is' and why there is 'is not'. You have come upon a true Glimmer of something very profound about Life. Your vision reminds another way to see this same idea. "Why" there is a seeming 't...

Consciousness, Life, Awareness are one; This is consciousness, this that is aware of the words here; consciousness is presently reading these words.

Re: Why Eckhart Tolle is not enlighted after all

Very nice quotes, Jen. Yes this is part of the greater understanding, when we begin to recognize that our attitude is reflected in the world "out there" ...because there really is no "out there" there is only Here, there is only Mind, there is Being reflecting as the things we see. If I look at the ...

Euro, I know, you said you cannot understand what I write, but I will say this anyway. First of all, I am in agreement with Jen, I know exactly what she is talking about, although I also know how difficult it is to try to put into words...because the Truth is multi-dimentional and so more than the i...

Re: Why Eckhart Tolle is not enlighted after all

Hi Pako Chubi, I am in a very silly mood this morning. And for some reason, when I read "what do I do for living" I just thought of myself as this dog riding in car with his head out the window and his long ears flapping in the breeze. :lol: What I do is not as important as how much I love just ridi...
