Re: Science and Tolle

As a response to all of the above, please refer to what ET says in the PON: The world arises when consciousness takes on shapes and forms, thought forms and material forms. Look at the millions of life forms on this planet alone. In the sea, on land, in the air - then each life form is replicated mi...

Re: Quotes please..

Love the ones that express the truth succinctly: "The view of the universe via a possessed, imprisoned Awareness is called the 'human experience' and it is fraught with endless perplexities. To end the perplexities, one stops believing himself a separate ego who is aware. One identifies as AWARENESS...

Re: Quotes please..

A couple more favorites: "A person getting enlightened is like the moon reflecting in the water. The moon does not get wet, the water is not disturbed. Though it is a great expanse of light, it reflects in a little bit of water; the whole moon and the whole sky reflect even in the dew on the grass; ...

Re: Quotes please..

I collect quotes considering them to be condensed wisdom and truth. Here are some favorites I have accumulated: Slight not what's near, while aiming at what's far. -- Euripides (484 BC - 406 BC) Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. -- Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996) The only tyrant I acc...

Re: Fear of death

Dear Mistral, Your 'angels' have helped me greatly through your recommendation of "Two Plus Two". What an absolutely amazing document. It beautifully summarizes the "Truth" I have been accumulating and trying to process and apply through reading Tolle, this website, and other material. It brought ha...

Re: Emerson

Very strange and interesting occurence. I was just reading this thread yesterday as I ran across it and was instantly drawn to "Emerson". I am a huge RWE fan, long before I was introduced to Eckhart. I wanted to move this up the chain by posting a quote from Emerson that I read every day because it ...

Re: This is all there is

Yes, an important perspective, it made me think of this quote:
"Nothing is enough to the man for whom enough is too little." - Epicurus
Also I agree with Key Master, I have only been on this site for short while and I am in awe of where HermitLoon operates from.

Re: Joe vs. the Volcano

Joe gets the girl and a true awakened life. He was at the end of his life from his perspective in the beginning.

Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

Even the subject of death is brought up a couple of times in the flick (fliming the dead bird, Lester dead at the end). The drug dealer has a fascination w/ death.. perhaps because he realizes the impermanence of all things. Regarding American Beauty and death: Ricky Fitts (the drug dealer) who is ...

Re: Joe vs. the Volcano

I realize this is an older post but I couldn't resist adding a comment as "Joe" is one of my very favorites. My first post was about favorite movies about awakening and of course, I had to mention "Joe". It ages well and is worth repeated viewings especially with people who you know will appreciate ...

Re: Is this site another way for the ego to avoid awakening?

As a new member as of yesterday (4/30) I can offer my own experience on this site. After finding it and reading the original "Awakening" post, which I found to be so succinct and powerful (and most of the responses, especially HermitLoon , wow) it blew a whole lot of dust and debris off of me and I ...

Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

This is my first post and this subject (movies) is very important to me. The films that are very important to me are: The Fountain ("death is the road to awe") Joe vs. The Volcano (the first Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan matchup, full of the spiritual, "Thank you for my life") I Heart Huckabees ("anything you...
