Eckhart Tolle in Toronto, anybody attended?

Hi everyone, I just realized Eckhart was in Toronto this past Sunday, I am so sad I missed it, I was actually planning on going and try to buy tickets at the door, but I completely forgot about it, I had been trying to buy tickets online but it had been sold out for months... Was anyone there, how w...

The Beach Happiness illusion I can't shake off

I had a horrible Saturday, a really upsetting trip to the beach that failed miserably. Sunday morning I'm still upset, deeply depressed. The most embarrassing part is that it's quite a first world problem. I am physically fine, I haven't really lost anything of importance and yet I am in pain, deep ...

Being ignored by my husband

:cry: Today has been quite the enfuriating day for me, with many small things bothering me to the point of rage, and as much as I tried to stay present to the anger, the anger prevailed. After some things that happened in the morning, the painbody went back to sleep, I was fine for about 3 hours. Th...

Self Validation and Self Deprecation

Lately I am becoming more and more aware of the mind's judgement. Since I have no job and I'm very very lazy (these are facts, mostly the first one), the voice is always judging, putting me down, making feel worthless, a waste of space, a parasite, etc, etc. I have no goals, I have no motivation, no...

Re: Sam Harris - An Atheist guide to Spirituality

Thank you for sharing this, I found it really refreshing. I have read "Free Will" by Sam Harris, and listened to him talking on Youtube, I like him, I was happy to find out he actually was aware of the mind, but I had never heard/read him going in depth about the topic like in this article. I apprec...

Re: Being the presence around my partner's pain body

Yes, it tells me how blind he is, how unaware of his own behavior. That's why I usually go with him to tell the doctors what he does, because he will only tell them one part of it, not even I know what he will decide to tell them. I must make sure to go with him next time and let them know about hap...

Re: Being the presence around my partner's pain body

Oh, hell no, no way I would have children with this guy, I don't want to have children anyways, so no worries there. I am a little bit shocked since I didn't think it was that bad, but have I already become an enabler of abuse? My mom stayed 25 years with my dad, but she would always stay quiet so i...

Re: The power of the 'suicide' idea ...

My husband has thought about suicide so so so many times, it's really his go to place when he can't cope anymore. I truly wish this whole painful mindset would break to allow the light of consciousness to shine through, but I believe this has become his identity, and that's why he has been holding o...

Re: Dealing with my very unconscious, high temper dad

Hi Clouded, I found your post after coming here to vent about my own situation with my husband, who's also been having outbursts lately. But my father has also been like yours many times, so I feel your pain. I am now 27 and haven't seen him in over 3 years, because I moved to a different country, b...

Being the presence around my partner's pain body

Hi Everyone, I've posted about my partner before, he's been dealing with severe depression lately and it's been hard for me to be around it, but what I'm finding most difficult to cope with is his temper. He has been getting very angry quite often. Here's an example from yesterday, here is the conte...
