Re: Heaven and Hell

Interesting questions! I understand Tolle is telling us harm is done to others when humans are 'unconscious'. That they harm when not present. So if they are able to become aware and fully conscious, they will lose all guilt and any wish to make others suffer. Also I see him saying that guilt preven...

Re: Jesus's Resurrection

The operating of oneself completely from the mind is what they are doing, without ever realising their mind was imprinted with what it holds long before it was provided with the choice they are now faced with - to accpt or reject what is before them.It is immaterial whether they accept it or not. If...

Re: Question about people's personal experiences

WW, I take your point about Atheism seeming analytical. It seems you are inferring such souls to be deliberate about funtioning mainly from the mind and outwardly seeking to explain all they see from there. A personal choice to live predominantly from the mind whenever a question arises inspite of b...

Re: Question on the Death of the Individual

There seem to be various elements existent as realities which are not all easily identified or proveable and some which will always elude us, such as whether ones own consciousness is preserved and passed onward as its unique self to realms other than those in this life. Inherited consciousness howe...

Re: What are you all seeking here?

I am in despair that after decades of reason and labrynths of ideology fromall manner of expert advisers, all that is left for each of us to do is to submit, and metaphorically fetch water and cut wood for the majority of our existence.

Odd really.

Re: I'm into spirituality but my partner is not

Crystalrays said: Eckharts reasonings could almost be used to suggest complete self sacrifice at all times and such a stance may well result in ones own predictable demise in all sorts of ways This can work the other way too, in the stillness one may find that the relationship is toxic or dysfuncti...

Re: Is too much "Now" a pain body?

Experientially there are some in human forms who have fulfilled their potential and aspirations and dreams in a whole catalogue of realised life experiences. I suspect such ones have a 'wisdom' of realised experiences from which they relate to any pursuit of presence and may even be more inclined in...

Re: Jesus's Resurrection

Awareness and perception caused me to question the egoic implications that a superior intelligence would ask or expect death as a proof of anything. So not only does the expectation that one ought to consider human sacrifice to be a display of presence now fill me with utter confusion, but also the ...

Re: What are you all seeking here?

I am guessing that spiritual sickness is the striving many humans have in their core for a pathway in a world which swallows deluded realtime as acceptable, sane and normal and whose view of those who do not is dismissive , negative and suspicious. We all know the capitalist ambition is one which is...

Re: Karma?

Very contentious points raised by your example. Did your ego find it unbelievable the woman really wanted you? Or was it afraid of disappointing her so much that it switched into eject mode from the real you that wanted it? Or were there two egos at work? Did the situation in some way appear false t...

When you see a room full of such people all laughing and then listen to Eckhart advising us how the rest of the world is insane, it is tough not to laugh!

Re: Question about people's personal experiences

Webwanderer, I take your point though I see also the view some hold that religion has instigated more humans wars and suffering than much of anything else I can think of. Further, the dogmas some enforce on young minds which later impact negatively on their and family lives which are then blamed on ...

Re: Is awakening a matter of understanding?

I agree that there is something in this whole feeling of thoughtless consciousness which has a potential power about it beyond any theories I have come across. The way it strikes the moment we are in as the only place for anything and how essentially it abandons human history as a way forward for hu...

Re: Is too much "Now" a pain body?

Innerhike your post made me excitable, thoughtful, giddy and pensive. Quite a feat in one post! I have a frustration with myself that I utterly surrender and find myself chopping wood and carrying water again. I become unaware of the feeling Eckhart associates with the 'emptiness' he reaches. My fre...
