Re: In need of advise

go somewhere in nature where you wont be interrupted and sit. sounds crazy but really what have you got to lose but your confusion? just sit. forget time, money, family, self, life, etc... just sit and observe without labeling ANYTHING. man is nature, and returning to nature can heal anything.

Re: just became homeless... real life test...

thanks for the support. some interesting aspects of the first 24 hours for those who care to know what it would be like to face this personally... so day 1 down. no sweat. no troubling thoughts at all, in fact, i felt challenged. i slept in my car in the back parking lot of a church and read 2 books...

Re: Dreams

very interesting topic. thank you for bringing it up. i dont have anything to add other than this... isnt it interesting that during our dreams, our awareness IS the dream? if we are nothing but consciousness, we no longer ARE what we are when we are "awake". i also wonder about the purpose behind t...

Re: Field of Now

to answer your questions... 1. i dont know, youd have to ask them. 2. i dont know, what may be "fully realized" to you may be different to me or others. (not that there is ultimately a difference, but you get the point) here is a suggestion, one that is not easy for most to take. sit for what seems ...

Re: exhausted from trying to convey "the now"

humble 2 cents... ... please excuse me if someone has said this earlier because i didnt read the entire thread. i used to do this too. try to expose people to this knowledge. its very natural because what causes happiness obviously causes the desire to share it with others, especially loved ones. my...

Re: I am just listening to stillness.......

I dont mean to hijack the issue on this thread, but while we're at it, i was wondering if some people could give me their best description of spaciousness. I feel I am comfortable with stillness, mostly from observing a plant or tree or glass of water, and feeling the comfort of that existence withi...

Re: Friends for life

this has happened in real life with 5 people. those who chose to think negatively and complain literally died from various causes. the two who survived relied on eachother and were convinced they could make it to rescue. its an episode of "i shouldnt be alive" and i think its called "lost at sea" or...

not as strong as i thought, and dealing with an addict

Opinions please: I had my first real test of my beliefs since "awakening", and after several hours, failed. Fortunately, drama and I tend to aviod eachother at all costs, maybe to a flaw, but I recently found out that my sister is a prescription pill addict and alcoholic. This was suspected for some...

Re: Not sure what to think re: very high prices for Tolle events

im not sure if it matters at this point, but providing proof of claims submitted as fact is usually included by credible sources. No insult intended, it's just the professional standard of discussion, which is alwasy welcome here :) can anyone reference how much it costs to provide all of the staff,...

Re: No Problems in the Now

i think this quote by Eckhart about there never being a problem in the present moment is often taken as if it applies to all moments. I've heard him reference this point a couple of times, and it could also be easily interpreted as if he were speaking to someone who was experiencing great depression...
