Gaia TV

I don't know how many here are familiar with Gaia TV, so I thought it worth a mention. I recently signed up for their service after a goodly amount of time considering it. I'd seen many of their advertisements over the years but never really gave it a close look. It seemed somewhat interesting but w...

Re: NDE, Dying, Nonduality--Ted Talk

I agree. Highly recommended. Even with all the research I've done into NDE's and afterlife studies, I found this hour long discussion quite valuable.

Where in the western part of the world do you think the most conscious people live?
Or highest percentage of people who are conscious?
My guess would be the local cemetery. :wink:

Re: Awakening

Hello All, I was wondering this morning. The Awareness that is aware of our breath and Aware of our Rising anger. Does it have a Voice? Can we build a relationship with it? If this awareness is Source Herself how do we distinguish that voice from the chatter in our mind? Welcome to the forum Sione....

Re: Hurted by teachings Eckhart Tolle

I just want to get rid of all that forever and return to normal way of thinking and living. How can i live normally if i believe that reality is illusion? That self is false and so on.. You can 'live normally' when you don't care whether it's illusion or not. In fairness, you don't know for sure an...

Re: Intuition or Attraction?

Welcome to the forum. I think it more likely that it's a mix of both. While something in your long term focus and concerns (even though not necessarily noticeable in your conscious thought, but possibly inherent in some belief structure you hold) has attracted this event to you, your sense of intuit...

Re: Hurted by teachings Eckhart Tolle

Self isn't an illusion. Identification with our human thoughts and beliefs is an illusion. Suppose you believed yourself to be a frog. Really believed it. Would you be a frog? No, that would be an illusion of thought, of belief. You are what you are. Remember the Biblical Scripture "I am that I am"?...

Re: Tolle Criticism

The one huge contradiction I have found between his teachings and his very own actions has also bothered me to an extent. He has spoken, in several of his retreats or talks (many of them available on YouTube), in a very chastising tone, about the logging industry that "cuts down the sacred forests ...

Re: Why no sublime sense of Depth and Being?

Jonski, I suggest that you look at the context of 'meaning' and how that applied reference directly affects experience. A key element that gives those 'recorded' events and conditions of our lives the quality that they hold for us is the meaning we apply to them. If events and conditions are just in...

Re: Tolle Criticism

The very thought storm of criticism you, and others, offer is simply evidence of what Tolle teaches about the dominance of identified thought over inclusive awareness. I have noticed this fanboy attitude that labels any disagreement or criticism as a "thought storm" while failing to see that any cr...

Re: Tolle Criticism

MidleMan, could you please post the Tolle quote where he clearly states that his teachings are "universally applicable"? Tolle has discovered an effective way to bring clarity and peace to his life through a recognition of the process of self-identification and a more inclusive perspective, that we ...

Re: Not 100% onboard with everything Tolle says, but he has a lot of good points. Open to discuss.

Tolle is by no means new to me, and I think he has a lot of good points, but I am not sure whether I 100% believe everything and whether he is really enlightened or not. Welcome to the forum Cyath. I agree that believing any teaching 100 per cent is mostly a mistake. (I believe that 100 per cent! :...

Re: Feeling empty and sad, will the ego ever die?

My recommendation is to tell her that you want her company, but only if she wants to be there. If she knows she's free to test the waters without getting trapped, she's more likely to take the risk. It has to be real on your part however. People can tell when something is only words. You'll find tha...
