Re: Despair and depression disappears when I listen to Eckhart Tolle, even when I'm not listening

Alignment. I used to listen to a lot of Tolle. His voice was like medicine. I supposed it was a good counter to the habitual unexamined stories that arise and get attention and reaction and feel so real. Tolle speaks from that still place. In one of his talks he compared his role to that of a midwi...

Continued... HermitLoon once compiled a bunch of kiki's posts here http://eckhart-tolle-forum.inner-growth.info/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=6071&hilit=kiki+kuotes Alas the link is broken because all forms change while the eternal nature in which the forms appear does not.

Re: Wild Wild Country

Chocolate does taste good! ...and the doer/no-doer rabbit hole tastes a bit like the nothing/everything swirl lolipop that is swiped from your hand before it reaches your mouth. Much appreciated Andy. I'm just an occasional visitor, a fair weather poster. 10 times thanks in return for you, the regul...

Re: Wild Wild Country

That would be amazing. Then you'd get to ask Hitler or this fictional non-dual Hitleresque character we created how did he write those things and do what he did? Good point that you just don't know. 14 of Hitler's watercolor paintings sold for $450,000 https://news.artnet.com/market/hitler-auction-4...

Re: Wild Wild Country

Cheers Onceler. Thanks for that. My point is that personality continues, with relatively modest change in style or content. Yes it seems so, doesn't it? So much of personality seems set in at birth or early age. Rajneesh as an iconoclast, a good word to describe his personality. I find there is anot...

Re: Wild Wild Country

The food was poor

That probably says it all. With all the talk of being first in that, new in this etc. and didn't get the food right at the cafe.

I'm 1/2 way through the 5th of 6 episodes now. Gosh, this gets ugly.

The ending has some sweetness to it. I thought it was well done.

To me, a true teacher has no followers. He or she simply live a life free of fear that has a subtle or profound effect on those who encounter them. They turn aside projections and allow no one to follow them. They are all around us.
That's right, very nice.

Re: Wild Wild Country

I'm less than half way through the third of six parts. Osho must have had quite a powerful personal charismatic presence. People go gaga over him. I never clicked with his videos or writing and understand that his is loved. I understand people get a lot out of his videos still. For me, I think he's ...

Re: Mind stuck on a past action regret

I watched this comedian, I can't remember who, make a joke about suddenly yelling in the shower because of a regret. I laughed because I have done that. There is probably sadness at the thought of harming your son. Just feel it all the way through. Observe the regret storm. See that you are here, br...

Re: Wild Wild Country

Oh that's about Osho? I will check it out. The trailer got my attention. I really don't know the story of his ranch.
