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-...

Re: Role of the mind

You might like this, Joe, Rupert Sheldrake 'Science Set Free'. A top notch argumentative work on how dogma has crept into the sciences and the history of how sciences at large lost the mystery of the universe in favor of a mechanical world view. In it he casts harsh light on that champion of thought...

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...

Re: How to avoid spiritual bypassing

I know that feeling of feeling bad about something in the past, feeling regret, and reliving past pain. There are probably better experts on spiritual bypassing. I'll take a stab at it anyway. Spritual bypassing would occur if you felt that these feelings were unworthy of your true spiritual higher ...

Re: Do you believe that the Source is almighty and or all knowing?

I dont' know. In any respect it's pretty impressive that the universe and life experience is here at all. So top kudos for that trick.

Re: Videos/Audio Tapes/Articles Where Eckhart Tolle Talks About Free Will?

How about this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unUJPFYjhEQ It might not be exactly on target as it's about 'willpower' however he talks about a choice to be present. I wouldn't expect consistency on this topic. I have also heard Tolle also acknowledge that isn't really a choice but it's also no...

Re: Amma

Hi. Sounds like a great experience. I have not previously heard of Amma. I have however noticed that no experience lasts. So sounds about right. I'd wager the experience of peace and good feeling made an impression on your vibration and you have it in your bank so to speak to help guide toward what ...

Same as anywhere else I suppose, addiction to thought.

Re: "Untrue"/Painful interaction with partner and close friends

Hi Sleef. I enjoyed your post. I love how writing stuff out does most of the sorting. I'll just share a short anecdote from my experience. One time my wife was really mad at me. I thought I would tune up the 'presence' in the interaction. She said, "Oh, I see. You are trying to be spiritual." Ha ha ...

Re: What to do when you can't trace the source of the emotion?

Hi Alchemizt. I can relate to your experiences of buried trauma. I'd say I have a lifetime supply. How do you practice The Work in this kind of situation? Just spend time with the fear. Let it be. Become familiar with the feeling of letting the feelings arrive and go where they go without interferin...

Re: Why are we doing this?

Wanting something other than what is in hand appears to be the de facto human standard. What Tolle is pointing to is the opposite. He speaks to attention to what is right now, an invitation to notice the present. Why do that? Isn't the present more interesting than a bunch of thoughts that disagree ...
