Self Esteem

Hi everyone. I'm almost embarrassed to write about this issue, but it's one that keeps coming up. For as long as I can remember, I've had this issue of self esteem and worthiness that keeps showing up. I keep getting this nagging thought that there's something I need to do or achieve in order to fee...

Re: Being in the now and selfishness?

I've been exploring awakening for quite some time, and there's one thing I've learned regarding selfishness. Usually when we point out the selfishness of others, it's because we ourselves are also selfish, and we want someone else to behave differently so that we can selfishly feel better. Every or...

Re: the pull

I've heard Eckhart say that there's nothing wrong with planning. Having goals is perfectly fine and a part of life. It's when we think the goals will complete us or enhance our sense of self that we set ourselves up for disappointment. The nature of form is always changing and can't be relied upon ...

Re: Law of Attraction vs Power of Now

I think there's a misperception that Law of Attraction is just about learning how to manifest things, and that simply isn't the case. Law of Attraction simply points out how resistance creates more resistance, and presence creates more presence. As far as being present and in the now is concerned, i...

Re: Learned Paranoid Thinking.

"At some particularly stressful point in a person’s life history, a part of the self walls itself off to protect itself from what it perceives to be a life-threatening situation. This maneuver may help the psyche survive an abusive or otherwise traumatic childhood, but later the splits may prove dif...

Learned Paranoid Thinking.

Hello everyone. I'm looking for insight regarding an ingrained behavioral pattern. I know this fits into the category of the mind's story. I'm just wanting to see if some extra insight might be of value. During my youth I was raised in a single parent household by my mother who suffers from paranoid...

Re: social anxiety question

I also experience bouts of anxiety and it's not a pleasant experience. Today I had the clear experience of accepting the fear and observing it as a bodily sensation. I adopted a curious accepting observant attitude, and suddenly the fear evaporated. It's the first time I clearly witnessed this proce...

Re: help-Where does the SOUL fit into all this?

Consider that what you are seeking to understand cannot be understood by the mind. It can't be known by thinking about it.

Re: What if your "now" is horrifying?

Sorry for the delay everyone. And thank you all for your kind and thoughtful responses. Let me clarify a few points. My friend does not dwell on the memory of her past abuses by her father. She does not have a "victim" mentality. But all the abuse she suffered has caused permanent lasting damage to...

Re: how i use ET in my daily life

Sometimes when laying down I feel a radiant buzzing sensation all over inside my body. It feels like a pleasant glowing energy. It seems to happen when my mind quiets itself. I've wondered if this is the inner body or being that ET speaks about.

Re: Eckhart and Abraham differences?

This is amazing because I was going to post the exact same question. By helping answer your question maybe I can help myself. When considering Abraham and Eckhart's teachings, it's important to consider what both Abraham and Eckhart have in common. Both teach ways to release resistance. When resista...
