this is what I do...

It is not what you do, but what you stop doing that matters. (483) It has nothing to do with effort. Just turn away, look between the thoughts, rather than at the thoughts. When you happen to walk in a crowd, you do not fight every man you meet, you just find your way between. When you fight, you in...

Re: Not sure what to think re: very high prices for Tolle events

Wow, I know you're "new" here, but have you read the endless accounts, on this forum alone, of people who were liberated from entrapping beliefs by following in their own lives the teachings of Tolle. How do you think Tolle's books sold so many millions of copies if not for the benefit his readers ...

Re: Not sure what to think re: very high prices for Tolle events

Thanks for censoring me. I posted a strong reply here yesterday about Tolle being a hypocrite (choosing to accumulate all this money which is a tell tale sign of a big ego), but you took it down. Not sure why. There's different possibilities... we don't know where the money goes, so it's too early ...

Re: Where do I find friends? Do I need them?

You say "I don't need a friend, but I do want them"... This sounds to me that you do feel like you need one or several friends :P I consider myself not to have any friends or alternatively, everyone is my friend. Sure there is a couple of people I can talk to, some of them talking with is more super...

Re: Not sure what to think re: very high prices for Tolle events

So if someone dedicate his life to teaching, he should be destitute? And if he is to take money for it, he should only spend it on what society approves of, his students, or just you? I'm not saying Tolle should do it for free, I'm saying the teaching necessary to liberate oneself should be freely ...

Nisargadatta took me beyond the need for further help.

2 to 3 years ago I first got in contact with Adyashanti's material online. I found him great..... A bit later I discovered Gangaji and bought her book "the diamond in her pocket". I found the way she explained it abit more useful than Adyashanti. I have read a part of "the power of now", but Eckart ...

"The Last Temptation of Christ"

They are some fun spiritual movies to please the ego. :P

Re: Not sure what to think re: very high prices for Tolle events

If eckhart tolle uses his money for a noble cause, good. If eckhart tolle uses his money to fullfill his secret needs, not so good. I've never spent much money to go to a teacher. In my opinion teaching should be free. Maybe there is a organisation behind tolle, who "made him big"... and they expect...

Re: Why would I send back the cold soup?

Only the person identificated with EGO prefers one thing over the other; but the person disintified with all forms (and so "truely in the now" does not.) So the question "Why would I send back the cold soup?" is a very good one, and I'm not exactly sure if I know the answer to it. I guess you could ...

Re: If I read Tolle, will I lose my drive to succeed?

if you don't want it to effect your lifestyle too much, it won't... because you sort of take it as far as you want to. but in many people's cases they just try it with the intention of "not going to deep" into it, but as they try it they think to themselves "wow nice" and before they know they are t...

Re: Levels of consciousness ?

i'm not exactly sure, but i think there is different levels of strength of experiencing the "NOW" as eckie puts it. when i look back at the last year, i can see that there becomes less and less "me"... and stronger and stronger feeling of happiness/freedom. so i think the more you allow your sense o...
