Re: Book Recommendation for the Sceptics?

I agree with all that has been said here about trying to sell something that can't be sold. Why not give your father a copy of Spiritual Warfare by Jed McKenna. If he doesn't like the message it's at least very entertaining ... that guy, whoever he is, knows how to write! I give you some excerpts he...

Re: Seeing from the perspective of the Infinite.

Hi Juno! A powerful awakening experience is a true blessings - especially when one is aware of the traps, for example the desire to try to replicate the experience. I wasn't that fortunate ... An awakening experience like yours is the true starting point of the true journey. I'm currently reading Ad...

Re: Awareness vs. Brain

Hi Glycine! If awareness had no existence outside the brain, why would that be a problem? For me, that is not a problem. To me a human brain is an entire cosmos. Even a single cell in the brain, or a single atom in that cell is a whole universe in itself. Your brain is your whole world. Please corre...

Re: Throwing stuff out...

Hi Joi! This is tricky business. Let's say you throw the stuff out and find that very liberating - a new self image might arise that says - I'm not attached to meaningless junk anymore, I have transcended that level. That's all very good ... for you ... but what about people you know that are still ...

Re: Trouble Sleeping..

E1lycat! If my post made you more confused, that proves that disidentifying with the mind is true for you. That's your path now. There is a lot of freedom in seeing that I am NOT my mind. Whatever we do or not do IT IS PERFECT. Always. Suffering is perfect. Confusion is perfect AND clarity is perfec...

Re: Trouble Sleeping..

Why do you think your mind is crazy? Is that your interpretation of ET:s pointers? You hear it all the time in nondual spirituality - monkey mind - mind chatter etc. I also used to think that my mind was crazy .... that I was NOT my mind ... the witness of the mind ... the stillness behind all the n...

Re: 'Monday morning' feeling

Monday morning and acceptance.... :-) Could someone please find something even more challening so that we don't have to cope with this one! A pointer that works for me is to see that I don't ever go to work. Period. It's not a pointer actually. It's reality. I never go anywhere ... except ... the th...

Re: Eckhart and the afterlife

Hi mmy! In an interwiev titled "Even the Sun will die" Eckhart speaks about life after death, a subject he seems to avoid.... What he says there is basically that he thinks it's unlikely that the "energy form" of a human being dissolves instantaneously. It' might take some time. He doesn't believe t...

Re: Duallism

Hi noboubt! I have read some Sufi poetry -and see some recognition of no separation. I wonder why main stream religion has sought to do neutralize this view point? This is how I see it: I am main stream religion. I insist on keeping people trapped in duality. The "duality people" are not out there. ...

Hello from Björn Clausen

Hi everyone! I've been visiting this forum many times but not yet posted anything. I enjoy reading your words of honesty, compassion and wisdom. I live in Sweden with my wife and my 10 year old daughter. I make a living by selling drugs ... legal drugs. I am a pharmacist. I am also a musician, plays...
