Re: protecting

It's not the running away...If you can do something I think you have to in that moment, but if you can't you just have to accept it...no? The hardest part is to accept something like that, in that moment....

protecting

I am just wondering...I was reading Koans the other day and the koan of the monk who nursed a child that was not his (I think it is in a new earth as well) came up. What if a child - your own or someone elses - is beaten by someone. You can not just stand there and stare at it...if conversation does...

Re: Resistance to Online Dating Profiles

I meant "perspective" instead of perspection...mhhh, have to do everything in English here, leads to funny words!! :D (I had an English boyfriend once, now I finally know why! :mrgreen: )I too like to talk with people whom I resonate with, but the more I read, talk, think (yes think!! :lol: ) the mo...

Re: Resistance to Online Dating Profiles

Hi, I recognise your story as I used to look for someone who was spiritual. I like the phrase "life will bring you excactly what you need, that might not always be what you want/like." There is a spiritual lesson in everything. Now, I try to see the lesson, before I only looked for the answer. Live ...

Re: What if someone does not accept you as you are?

Last saturday he asked if we could talk again. He said that he didn't quite understand etc... I just was there and explained that I was not willing to get drawn into the ego thing and that I was trying to stay out of that. I told him that I was not "enlightend" but in some stage somewheren, not stro...

Re: What if someone does not accept you as you are?

Hi Andy, Thanks for your reply! You are guessing right, he does not read any self help books at all :) And I have difficulties accepting it, so I have to leave. I came to the same conclusion. It is strange how this works, everytime I find myself in such a position I learn something new. I have found...

Re: Oil Spill Response?

Roll up your sleeves and go clean up the mess. Big mess and it might not get cleaned all at once, but there is nothing else that will change it NOW, is there? It's not like anybody wanted this to happen. If you drop something at home you also clean the mess. That is really the only thing that change...

What if someone does not accept you as you are?

I was wondering... I try not to judge my partner, love him for who he is, even when he shouts at me or thinks what I do is "stupid". I get drawn into his unconciousness a lot when I do not pay attention in being present. I can see that when it occurs and after it occurs, but I know that my ego respo...

Re: How about manic depression - borderline -

@ Andy - Sighclone - What are your views on people who are diagnosed with borderline or Bipolar disorder? The reason I ask: I have a friend who has brought me closer to Tolle. We had a lovely time, talked a lot about "The Power of Now" and after a while we fell in love. He had but one problem: he wa...

Re: Music

When you create music, you must be in "flow" so you are not busy thinking about other things. When you listen to music, you are busy listening, and one should concentrate listening to fully enjoy. In which case you can not think as well. I paint, same thing here. To create, you need to concentrate a...
