I added some Tolle ideas heavily to a recent article

Hey everyone,

Thanks for all the great comments whenever I post here. I wrote an article about living a more conscious and self-determined life, and it uses a number of distinctly Tolle ideas :) Hope you enjoy it. The article is here: How to Take Control of Life

New Article on the Pain Body

Hey everyone, I know I haven't been around these forums much in awhile. I've settled into just using Tollian principles inactively and haven't been actively meditating on anything new Tollian for awhile. But today I finally got around to writing an article I've been thinking of doing for quite some ...

Opportunities to accept what is

Lately when things go wrong, I've been doing my best to use them as opportunities to accept what is. For example, I recently missed a flight home from Japan, forcing me to stay an extra 2 days and pay a $250 ticket change fee. I used it as an opportunity to accept what is, and ended up having lots o...

Doorway to presence: imagined scrutiny

One thing that I find can jerk me into presence is to pretend that someone- often my father- is watching from behind my eyes and seeing whatever is going on in front of me. It's best if it's someone you care about and to whom the event would be at least a little new and strange. The same technique a...

Re: Attention is a sense for awareness to be aware?

Attention is a way for consciousnesses/awareness/being to sense the world. It sounds obvious, but I wanted to post and get comments on the less obvious parts maybe. When I concentrate my full attention into looking at let's say a tree, what I really am doing is concentrating my awareness, through a...

Re: Karma?

It sounds like you're making huge sweeping changes to your life. That's good. Lots of people are terrified by change (whether or not they admit it). Better to stay in the warm bubble of your comfort zone than venture into the unknown, even if the comfort zone is miserable and lonely. I know from exp...

Re: This gift of pain

Thank you for this note, that is pure gold. That's what's really awesome about Tolle, no matter how bad something is, you just acknowledge it and be aware of it, without TRYING to change it. And then, miraculously, it changes... it's a wall that you can't break through with all the strength of Hercu...

Re: clarifying ego

One of the ego's most insidious masks is the "egoless mask". If someone says, "I have no ego, I destroyed it", that's their ego talking. Ironic...

Re: Jesus's Resurrection

My father, a diehard Christian, tells me about how when he first became a Christian he went through a month long period of deep joy and gratitude. So it's not impossible to achieve presence through Christianity. Unfortunately my dad has this idea that the month was a one-time-only deal. One Christia...

Re: This gift of pain

Hey :D I was being present at a club the night I lost my virginity, and I also had some performance issues that night. I was perfectly able to get hard, I had the opposite problem, it took *forever* for me to reach climax. Anyway, I don't know whether or not you are/were a virgin on the night of tha...

Hello :) Glowing Face Man here :)

Hello everyone. A friend introduced me to Power of Now and I love it. It's so full of wisdom and truth. :D I used to be big into NLP. It's interesting seeing how NLP and Tolle conflict with eachother. They're basically exact opposite approaches to self-improvement: program your mind like a computer,...
