Re: The Retreat in Denmark

“During my first retreat with her I was really wrapped up in my arrogant self-image as a great mediator, and I wanted her to notice my obviously "evolved state". Certainly she would see me for what I was and that would elevate me in the eyes of everyone around me, and I felt darshan was the time fo...

Re: The Retreat in Denmark

Thank you so much for the thoughtful replies. Thank you for clarifying how it is in other retreats. This was my first one. I do accept that the teachings of Eckhart are great, and that his strengths may not lie in retreat organization. The lectures were fantastic. As the owner of hi-tech service com...

The Retreat in Denmark

LOVE Eckhart =========== I was one of the lucky ones who got into the retreat. The reason being that I was waiting for it for 2 years after studying and listening and re-listening to all Eckhart’s for 1.5 years before that. I ordered my place within a very short time of it being publicized. I was at...

Re: conflict w/husband over weekend ignited painbody!

I find from personal experience that ACCEPTANCE of the husband as he is is the key when the hurt ego/inner child/pain body awakens. Try to imagine the trigger of this awakening (whether they be his words or actons) flow through you like a cloud. Imagine it doing so while breathing deeply. Then menta...

Thank you so much Sandy, ErictT, Kiki, Heidi, Clare, Dancer, It is so nice to see that you are all still here. I expect that it is a very strong identification with ET’s message that draws us. There will always be something wrong. If you want to radically change your experience of life, you must cha...

Pain, Being Down, No Reason

Hello All! I haven’t written for so long, because I felt good or on an even keel. I had lessened the noise in my head and didn’t feel a need to communicate. I still listen all the time to Elkhart’s DVDs. I have about 15 sets of different ones from him and some from the Dali Lama. They help enormousl...

As I become more awake/aware I see how my friendships were mostly involved in me telling my drama, and them consoling me or offering advice and then vice versa. Or us talking about what is wrong and unjust about this or that (negative judgment stuff). I never liked just talking about events, like go...

Changing Friendships as the Mind Quiets

Have any of you had your friendships change as you stopped identifying so much with your pain body?

What a wonderful, and heartfelt responses. Welcome to the forum both Marmalade, Be-lank and Noodeltaboo. Marmalade, I can add from my experience that awakening should definitely not be sought or dreamed of for a future in which you have achieved and reached all the goals and fixed all the situations...

This weekend I rented and watched the movie "Chariots of Fire" again. In this movie you see the runners enter a state of pure presence at a certain point in their run. I reran these parts over and over. The Scottish Christian religious guy would enter this state as he neared the end of the race. In ...
