Re: Time. The Present is a "Psychological Illusion" says Harvard Psychologist

Hi Trails! <3 Thank you for the nice compliment. That means a lot to me. It's so nice to see you, kiki, sighclone, and ww still moderating this bright spot on the internet. To me the experience of time smacks the windshield as hard as the experience of light, maybe harder. Clocks are everywhere. The...

Time. The Present is a "Psychological Illusion" says Harvard Psychologist

We all know Tolle is big on the present moment. There is only one moment, now, essentially. "People don't realize that now is all there ever is; there is no past or future except as memory or anticipation in your mind." - Tolle "Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor wil...

Re: Marriage/Divorce

Hi SamiT, You're not alone with experiencing anxiety, it seems to be way up these days across the global population. Reading and listening to Tolle really helped with my anxiety levels mostly by encouraging to explore what it's like to not place such a high value on thoughts. It doesn't seem all men...

Re: I refuse to surrender to what is. Isn't it giving up?

I don't understand how one can surrender to something that is painful and invite the pain and observe it and make peace with it. Just like if you get sick and your immune system decided to make peace, instead of fighting the virus. Because one's depth is infinite. How do you know how much pain you ...

Re: Inner body(energy field)

Hi Adugna12, I don't think there is much in uniqueness to the suggestion to put attention on the inner body. I think it's particularly vague. The point is to think less, to get out of the mind and settle into the present moment, to root in the sense perceptions here and now, to be without thoughts o...

The second one. Apparently hunter gatherers had a 3-5 hour work day. All in the great outdoors. http://www.rewild.com/in-depth/leisure.html

Re: Angry about having feelings of Shame

A friend of my daughter's wondered if the sun might be angry that it has to consume itself so that the rest of us may live an adventurous life on earth. On a rainy day I stood outside the door under cover with my psychology professor. He wore what looked like an expensive jacket. He once referred to...

Re: Anyone recovered from Severe Anxiety?

Hi Eagle85. I feel for you. Much of my life was dominated by general anxiety and depression. The thing I attribute the most to a massive reduction in anxiety is listening to a lot of Tolle and other teacher's audio books, talks and guided meditations. Something about the audio format for me particul...

Re: Favorite Eckhart Tolle audio

Hi Christa, I also like Stillness Speaks on audio. The structure, content, sound quality, and narration are all excellent. For live talks I liked "The Eckhart Tolle Audio Collection" which has three items, two seminars and one interview called "Even the Sun Will Die." https://www.audible.com/pd/The-...

You might like this, Joe, Rupert Sheldrake 'Science Set Free'.

Re: Role of the mind

If claims and arguments led to the truth humanity would have been enlightened and suffering put to bed for good long long ago. Help me understand what is the value of the argument and/or counter argument? Lets say you find the perfect argument. What then? Try to convince people? How does that go? Ho...

Re: Role of the mind

Hi joe, trails, To be sure there are plenty of spiritual dimensions to play within the mind. It doesn't seem like something exclusively inside of outside of the mind especially since spirituality can mean different things to different people. Spirituality to me if it offers any significant benefit i...
