Re: Conscious living

Maprem: I had a similar experience to yours. A few years back while reading Tolle’s A New Earth, an enormous recognition shook me to my core. I realized for the first time in my life that the roles I believed gave me identity, those of mother wife, daughter, sister etc, that those roles were not who...

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

I have recently signed up for a MBSR program at my local university hospital. The program draws on the age-old technique of meditation and hatha yoga. I sense it will help my natural capacity to actively engage in self-care…..much needed at this time. I have also returned to the outdoors and to phys...

Re: A rationalist and his difficulties w/ Tolle

Jen: thanks so much for posting these parts of ANE and for your  wonderful insight. Reading them just now has created a small shift in perspective. As I read I kept saying 'of course, I know that, I know that'. It felt like coming home. I have pretty much put all things spiritual on the back burner ...

Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

It’s very possible karmarider. I sense I went through a phase of pure love with the world when Tolle’s teachings first disarmed me of expectations. What glorious months those were. Unfortunately, expectations of all kinds, even political arrrrrggggghhhhhh, have been allowed back in. Now, there is a ...

Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

Just came back from watching Flight. Excellent movie. Talk about a moment of clarity. Also saw Cloud Atlas last week and yes, I found it highly entertaining and a little confusing. The documentary Encounters at the End of the World is amazing. Here is a preview. They have it on Netflix and CinemaNow...

Re: Something I Never Knew About Tolle

Great to hear from you too Km. I wrote that in August 2011 but basically feel the same way. I am allowing some mild forms of turmoil into my life these days and curiously observing some of my reactions. I am not proud of some of these reactions but the learning process is invaluable. It’s all good. ...

Re: Music of "the other side"?

This song expresses the way I felt right after reading ANE and realizing I was not who I thought I was. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ahb7kQoLTTA I no longer feel that way though. Now there is a space between joy and pain, an insulating space that makes me the obsever of th...

Re: Rumi and Whirling Dervishes

Wow trails. What an amazing experience!!!!! Here is another wonderful poem by Rumi. This one is about welcoming the 'good and the bad' nonjudgementaly. Definetly up Tolle's alley. The Guest House This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some mo...

Re: Merging 2 Teachings Tolle/Byron

The Work allowed me to see that there is absolutely no thing we can know with absolute certainty. Seeing this brought great relief. As far as merging both, I am not sure. I use what 'works' from Tolle and from Byron Katie. Tolle 's inner body teachings have been the most effective way to connect wit...

Re: The "Interpreter"

Being aware of the tendency to see patterns where no patterns exist, to find order in chaos can lead us down the wrong 'path' until we see through the tendency. The notion that the Universe/god has my back is very comforting but I sense that refuging there could become an obstacle.  At times of deep...

Re: New from NC

Welcome leahnc. KR's suggestion of De Mello is excellent. You can find his most important 'sermons' on youtube. He is favorite of many on this forum. I don't think I've ever been a Christian, although I played the part well for a year or two when my kids were small. I stopped taking them to church w...

Re: Watch this shortfilm

What a fun movie. Thanks for posting. I am with rachmiel, there is true power once the need to seek validation ends, or even when it's first seen in the light of awareness.
