Re: Here I Am

A transitional experience. One that will set the foundation for the rest of your life. Many of us here have had our own such experiences. Mine began over forty years ago. From its beginning it came in stages over many years, not so dissimilar from the one you describe. Different in detail of course,...

Re: School of Awakening certification with your name on it

Thanks oak tree. You are correct. Here is the actual statement from the enrollment page. "7. A Certificate of Completion and Optional CE Credits Upon completion of The School of Awakening, you will receive a special Certificate of Completion signed by Eckhart Tolle and Kim Eng.

Re: School of Awakening certification with your name on it

I went and checked out the Tolle event I believe you are referring to. Here's a link: https://www.soundstrue.com/store/Eckhart-Tolle-Conference There are a number of speakers beyond Eckhart and Kim. I could not find a reference to "You also get a certification with your name on it". Maybe I just cou...

Re: School of Awakening certification with your name on it

I haven't seen it, but if it's as you say, that's a bit troubling. On the other hand, let it be a reminder that each of us is responsible for our own growth and development. If a certificate of awakening is attractive, it might be missing the point.

Re: Being present while living with unconscious parents

Do you still suffer for it? I'm not a fan of the word suffer as I consider how it applies to my personal experience. When does suffering occur? When we are unconscious and acting in unconscious ways, creating painful experience for others? In other words is unconsciousness itself a form of sufferin...

Re: Painbody looking at you.

...is it something I perceive thru my ego? How does it make you feel? If it hurts you, it's likely ego. If you find judgment in it, that's likely ego too. If it's anything other than a curiosity and an understanding appreciation, it's likely ego. All that said, there is nothing wrong with ego. One ...

Re: Being present while living with unconscious parents

What is your perspective in this situation? Is it my mind saying that is difficult or it actually really is? Likely a little of each. If you're living in a situation that is difficult and challenges you to stay clear and present, the fact that you recognize it is your mind telling you it's so. In m...

Re: What is spiritual bypassing?

Im trying to see if this is bypassing or not. If not then holy shit what a tool that is. I naturally really want to redeem myself for the mistakes I made so the last thing I wanna do is bypass this one, I wanna be someone who makes the right choices in those situations. Also what about teachers lik...

Re: How does one decide?

Alignment is not made through our thoughts, but through our feelings. Thought plays a role in gathering information, but when it comes down to choice, the best ones are made by what feels best. There is no right or wrong in our choices. There is only this or that direction and the experiences that c...

Re: What is spiritual bypassing?

How can I be sure this isn't some kinda bypassing? My take is that if it's a matter of avoidance then it may well be bypassing. If however, it's a matter of perceiving the thing or event that concerns you in a larger context, one that is inclusive of a larger spiritual nature, then it's likely not ...

Re: A Chuckle A Day Keeps The Doctor Away

And while we're at it, why do we park on a driveway, and drive on parkway? And why is live spelled backwards 'evil'? And why does changing the position of one letter in Santa, (move the 'n' to the end) spell Satan? And why are Santa's boots (his base) and his belt (his center) both black? Why does h...

Re: Why is the ego not who we are?

Why are there two? And are there more? Is any one of them more real than the other, and does it even matter? There is the desire to change, there is the desire to suffer, and there is the desire to understand why. I wonder if there is a grand, unifying point at which all of these desires meet. What...

Re: How important is to follow STRICTLY precepts ?

I don’t want not only me, but no one to suffer forever, which is what for instance Christianity and Islam teach. Religions such as these tend to take the carrot and stick approach. The stick is to instill fear rather than understanding. They also promote their own exclusivity. It helps keep the fol...
