Re: Is Eckhart FULLY realized?

Here's my take on this matter: 1. People start behaving like the teachers they claim to be inspired by. UG acted rather erratically and used cuss words and frequently denigrated people's spiritual paths and other teachers. First he had the benefit of some amazing teachers like Ramana, JK and Sivanan...

Re: The law of attraction

The law of attraction is quite simple, in my understanding. The less I resist Life, the more I am present, the more Life flows in all of its abundance. Every thought, idea, judgment, hope, desire, expectation, etc. simply is resistance to the Flow of Life. Every path that is true is simply a river t...

Re: Not all animals are continuously living in the present!

We can and must use everything that bothers us to wake up. What interests Glycine may not interest others, but Glycine must use these means to wake up. --- Are animals living in the present? Ramana Maharshi on many occassions when presented with a question like this would say: who is asking, the ani...

Re: Are expectations bad?

Dear Citronella49, Greetings! I like domokato's reply in that nothing is good or bad, and that fundamentally peace is to be found by letting go of both good and bad. I teach at the college level so I can relate somewhat to your teaching experience. I do my darndest in explaining the level and qualit...

Re: What is your experience resting as Source?

Monica, It is excellent that you are resting as Source more and more. I have found in my so-called experience that there are many openings into the so-called Now, over a lifetime, especially if one has suffered tremendously or has a huge desire for the peace that passeth understanding. These opening...

Re: advice re Tolle's books

First item I would like to address from the original message: I feel maybe i am missing something if I don't get the other books ......it is bothering me The whole premise of Tolle's teaching is that you are complete, there is nothing missing in you, in this moment. This is the premise of all Advait...

Re: Regrets

Everything is a chance for you to decide who you are, to choose peace or non-peace. No matter what is going on, no matter what mistakes you have made, all of this is your perception. The key now is to choose what you wish to create or experience. Is it peace or God that you want or drama? The more w...

Re: being present after a fight without "I'm sorry"

To me the key is for me to be in a state of peace, no matter what anyone else is doing, saying or being. Now I can make my preferences clear to another party and if they repeatedly choose not to work with my clear statement, then again the ball is in my court as to what I will do. The key is always ...

Re: Basic needs versus ego

Here are my thoughts on this dear innerpeace2u, and maybe it helps, maybe it doesn't. There is a possibility that we can use spiritual teachings in an irresponsible way, a way that endangers our safety, well-being, or that of our dependents. Is the spirit using us, or are we using it? Everyone prays...

Re: Surrender - clarifying it!

Luke, Thank you for bringing this up. This is an on-going journey for me, hopefully a constant refinement, so my answers reflect where I am at. Surrender is a state whereby one is living in a state of Grace. Words, mind efforts at trying to grasp these things make them seem like things, when in real...

Re: .

Dear Adahy/Dan, My words here are just my own rambling reaction to your actions and explanation in regards to your deleting your posts. First off, Maharaj told Godman to not give talks to live audiences, but that it was okay to keep writing books. Godman is the most prolific author on Ramana Maharsh...

Re: Awareness vs. Brain

Yes, asking no questions really works! However, my mind revolts against it: it sounds like a dogma! There you have it. You want validation for something that cannot be understood, described, measured or valued by using ideas of a culture that is vested in thinking, and its off-shoots: measuring, de...

Re: Anyone here know about Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

I myself have not had any formal exposure to NLP. But I really appreciate what you have shared. I have come across people who have turned to hypnotherapy, NLP and other modalities in their quest to overcome a variety of patterns. If something has helped you, let's not knock it. But let's remain open...
