Re: Presence's effect on motive

And there is the rub...no matter how much I meditate or study or relax, I have not been able to look for work skillfully. The moment I open the paper or click on the link, I am immediately sucked out of the moment and pulled in to a spiral of doubts, fears, fantasies...everything but the peace of t...

Re: Am I not fit for this world??

This was a big issue for me. Your problem stems from the "belief" that you "should" want surface happiness, that you "should" find it comforting. It is a belief instilled in you almost from birth. It's what everyone thinks, that they can add happiness to their lives. Most never realize it until well...

Re: Believing our Thoughts

This discussion is hilarious from my perspective! I mean we can all see that it's the ego that considers "crossing over to the other shore" as a problem. What the ego doesn't understand is that there is an order that it can't grasp because it isn't in control. As one who has embraced the other side,...

Re: Why controlled by thought?

I think it was a combination of language and the left over animal instincts to compete that caused it. Language allowed for us to label things mentally, which allowed for planning for the future and mentally learning from the past. This combined with an unconscious need (or drive) to compete for mat...

Re: help me,to know what's wrong with me

Wow this is a tough one. Hard to say what is going on. I think it may have to do with a fear of being alone, almost as if you became "addicted" to group study. It obviously worked for you so you now have an unconscious belief that you need to have a group study to succeed. There seems to be a fear o...

Re: Fears effects on the mind

Great post. This is exactly what happened to me. After my awakening I quit playing video games, watching tv, listening to the news on tv or radio, I simply quit all of it instantly. I let it all go because I felt it no longer reflected who I was. I left everything I ever knew ( including friends and...

Re: Should I avoid things that make my ego act up?

"I Am" happens for me normally, in the morning for 2 minutes walking home from dropping my kid off at school, completely alone. That's fantastic. That's a start. Now practice staying with that feeling for longer periods of time. When in interactions with people take a breath and try and observe you...

Re: Does Objective Morality Exist?

How about anything done from the state of presence is "good." Anything done unconsciously is "evil." That's my take, even though it explains nothing.

Re: The Secret vs. Ekchart???

The truth in the secret is that you attract what you ARE. As I stated in another post, you must BE what you want, which therefore means you don't want it anymore because you ARE it. It's paradoxical but its true. It's why ET wrote in the ANE, "you can't become successful you can only be successful."...

Re: Too many losses

Rachel I am deeply sorry to hear of your suffering, I am truly sorry you have lived to see such a time. This is also a great time to awaken. All of these events have happened, you can't change them. There is nothing you can do. So accept it. Accept everything as it is, surrender. As ET wrote in ANE,...

Re: How'd Tolle find out about inner body? Original sources?

When you are in this clear space, does it feel as if you've transcended body? No not at all. It's almost as if I'm inhabiting it fully. It's hard to describe. It's as if I'm going deeper into it, but not beyond it. To be honest it feels incredibly "normal." The more I feel and go into it, the more ...

Hello From Phoenix, AZ

I found this forum just yesterday, and wow I've already gotten more out of it than I thought. Amazing stuff. I came to this site trying to find out common questions and sticking points for those who have glimpsed Eckhart's teachings but are having trouble implementing them in their lives. What I've ...

Re: Awakening in terms of "waking up from a dream"

For me that is what it feels like. Catch yourself the next time you are lost in thought, notice how that feels inside. Notice how it feels very similar to waking up in the morning from a vivid dream. It's hard to describe but it can be experienced, just pay attention to the feeling after you've been...

Re: Abundance

Yet, how can one allow it to arise out of presence when one is bringing an ‘agenda’ of sorts (and thus the mind) to the present moment by trying to influence the arrival of these qualities by purposely seeking them out. That is not truly being present is it? No of course it's not presence. This is ...

Re: The Long Now

I think the biggest challenge in long term thinking is, as Tolle points out in PON, do you really know what is right, or good? Forever? Of course not. So the key in long term thinking is to be able to be flexible, adapt the plans to fit the current needs of the time. As with any form, thoughts and i...
