Re: Changing careers due to Tolle's influence?

Hi Meg, Also, your job cannot keep you from being present. Thanks for your thoughts RCharles. In his audio "The Flowering of Human Consciousness" Tolle responds to a question from a participant about work choices that are compatible with presence.

Decision to return to a relationship - What would Tolle say?

Thanks for the opportunity to ask this question. I left a relationship 4 years ago, and my last contact with him was three years ago. Since the breakup I have been stuck in going round and round, questioning whether or not I should go back. I know he has not entered a new relationship and is availab...

Re: Depression

Here is a little theory on Depression: There are several ways to cope with such depression: 1) Drugs which temporarily either block some awareness ability or increase the ability to handle awareness. In certain sense, paying a high price to be in the presence of Eckhart Tolle is a better way to cur...

Re: Need to break a bad habit ... please help!

Juno, I like your idea to use the inclination as a pointer and will try it in the next few days as I try to kick the habit.

Narz, thanks so much for sharing your similar experience. It really helps to know there are others in my shoes. Sending you a PM to say more.

Re: Need to break a bad habit ... please help!

Thank you Glycine and Kiki, both of your posts very helpful. Regarding using the site just for the bare minimum ... I think i've gotten to the point where it doesn't help me at all anymore.

Re: Seeking tape recommendation

Thank you for your additional thoughts, Randomguy, Sighclone and Brooks ... I am making a change in my life: no more liberal talk radio (which depresses me); instead I'm listening to Tolle in the evening. Much better! This is so similar to my experience, it made me laugh. I realize now that listenin...

I didn't realize Tolle made so many recordings. I am making a change in my life: no more liberal talk ra...

I was just wondering if those events tend to be discussions or meditations. I just...

Re: Seeking tape recommendation

Randomguy and Kiki thank you so much for your helpful and thoughtful responses. I was in a bookstore many months ago and PON called to me from the shelf. This rarely happens, so I knew there was something powerful about that book... it's probably time to get it. Stillness Speaks and Gateways sound l...

The one I have been listening to recently is The Flowering of Human Consciousness . His references to flowers as spiritu...
