Re: Sometimes I just can't shake this one off :(

I didn't mean to disappoint anyone on this board but I am still looking for that simple solution to just let him go..probably forever :cry: . In years gone by, I too obsessed over a lost boyfriend. It's hell. I am not at all disappointed that you are still stuck. Accept it. OK, I'm stuck on this gu...

Re: Coffee Drinking and Enlightenment (A Survey)

Hiya,

Yes I LOVE coffee. Strong, half caf, with French Vanilla Cream. First thing in the morning, 3 cups. How else can you start a day? I can't imagine going without. I switched to half caf because of the jitters. I don't get them anymore.

Re: Sometimes I just can't shake this one off :(

Admitting the hold that your ego has on you is hard, but is it really harder than wasting your life on a phantom? Relationship problems, especially the losing part, really brings out lots of baggage. Now, it is so easy to see that my ego owns me. I'm in there deep. Does seeing and admitting it some...

Re: How do I stop caring what other people think of me?

Do I have to write more? Today, when I was getting dressed, I noticed how anxious I was and in such a hurry. I didn't like the feeling at all and so decided, why don't I get these clothes on while being in the moment. As I did that, I became aware of the unconscious thought pattern that was causing...

Re: End Depression Now

Thank you, innerhike, for your response. If only I could stay there! I sometimes feel that I get too personal on the forum but I go ahead anyway because I need to express my real "life" experience. I also am more responsive to the posts of others who are talking directly from their own experience. A...

Re: End Depression Now

For many, many years I have had suicidal thoughts. I didn't take them seriously as I knew I wouldn't act on them because I had a son who needed me. To be honest, I deliberately got pregnant during one of these episodes, so that I would have a reason to live. I know that sounds like a really awful wa...

Re: It's taken time...

:idea: The Power of Now, was not created by Eckhart Tolle. He is just a man writing about his experience with the power of now. I too experience the power of now and that has nothing to do with sailing except that she opens herself to the experience when she gets out of her head and goes inside to l...

Re: Too much spirituo-babble

Hi Heidi, I would like to point out that when I first started reading on the forum, I came across a whole lot of long-winded nothingness and it freaked me out so much that I thought I'd found the wrong place to explore further, my understanding of the experience that Tolle teaches about. Fortuneatly...

Re: Niamh from Edinburgh, Scotland

Welcome Niamh, (how is your name pronounced?) I lent out my copy of the Power of Now so can't quote directly and also have a poor memory. The book says something about "when you are really suffering, there is the opportunity, very near you, to surrender." I hope someone else can expound on that. Any...
