Re: Changing the world

Hey missed this post. My suggestion is that your desires are not creating conflicts but are the conflicts themselves. If you want a car but don't have one you are at conflict with conditions as they are, but this does not imply you need to be conflicted with the desire itself. You notice a fear of ...

Why is there so much resistance to presence?

I was first introduced to Eckhart Tolle about 8 years ago (WOW!!). However I don't think I would ever be "practicing" for more than a few months at a time. Such as reading, meditating or consciously taking short moments of awareness. I think a lot of times I would just start to end up getting happy ...

Re: Changing the world

For a couple years I have had the idea that the millennial generation (born in the 80s to 2000s) are incredibly lucky and have the potential to really shift the paradigm and consciousness by taking leading roles, especially online. I have been wanting to create a blog that details this shift, and t...

Re: Changing the world

That all sounds groovy. And I also consider other spiritual teachings like the Buddha ("life is suffering and the suffering is caused by desire"). This is of course a pretty common element in teachings by Gangaji and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj so the fact that I "desire" to create this has become qui...

Eckhart Tolle and the Trap of Acceptance

Eckhart Tolle has done an amazing thing. He has brought awakening into the mainstream. This is an incredibly huge step. For many of us his books were eye openers. However, they should only be used as an eye opener and not as something to follow. Why? He focuses too heavily on acceptance. This is a v...

Re: Pseudo Advaita

There are so many teachings available. I think whatever resonates with us is probably right for us at that particular time. We can always drop it later. I searched and practised intensely for years. I heard many teachers like papaji and gangaji say stop searching. But I couldn't. There was a huge p...

Re: Pseudo Advaita

Rideforever- the reports or awareness are different because the reports are being generated by thought. Jesus called it the Kingdom of Heaven. He referred to awareness as Father. Just different time and different cultures and different vocabularies. The descriptions are limited to what the mind know...

Re: Pseudo Advaita

I was feeling a higher degree of peace when I had been reading Gangaji so why would i question that experience so much?? Just be vigilant, observe and be ...

Ive been struggling a bit here ( The US) so the idea of going to India to possibly be surrounded by other "seekers" really appeals to me. BUt what I am wondering is if its ...

Re: Still The Same (Hitchhiking)

I will check out Byron Kaite and CBT. Thanks And midnight says that i should not let the fears stop me from what I want and that they are illusion. BUt at what point are fears valid? Or are they never valid when thinking about the future? I mean some people may believe that no one should hitchhike a...
