Re: Can you help a beginner?

Space Invader, See if this is true or not. 'We don't suffer because we feel a certain way. We suffer because we fight that feeling' It helped me to tell myself a story. Everything (including me) is the expression of a loving intelligence or God. Including my feelings. No matter how it feels to me no...

Re: Building Confidence

Cam23, I used to struggle with this. I have turned around and I don't consider that as an issue anymore. The key is..'You don't suffer because you feel a certain way. You suffer because you fight that feeling.' Here's a simple way to do this: 1) Start spending a fixed time alone and let yourself be ...

Re: Share your personal experiences here!

Thanks for raising the topic, Monmonn. My experience below: 1. How have anxiety levels increased or decreased? Decreased. 2. How have your relationships changed? Am more social now, (used to be an introvert) and now I am confortable and happy to lead or express what i feel. I am now clearer on my op...

Re: Give what you want to receive.

Nice one!
Joel Goldsmith taught that giving what little you have is a way of recognizing that your inner being is actually the source.

Re: I Am That

Sri Ramana Maharshi advised to ask repeated questions like.. Who am I..? Am a doctor? Who is saying I am a doctor? My mind is? Who's mind is it? Mine? Who am I? ;) etc etc... Actually, like Nisargadatta Maharaj said, its a pretty natural state. We have been in it now and then. Some say, Just be. Don...

Re: Spiritual Center in India

Dear Vendicate, Am from India. You probably have already reached here. Nevertheless, here is what I feel.... There are multitudes of Gurus here and they have multitudes of followers who will vouch for them. So, you can never be sure who is genuine. Lots are fake. Start looking for enlightenment wher...

Re: Lester Levenson

I have heard Lester use the word Sedona Method in an audio and endorse it. I have heard the entire Sedona Method course too. I will endorse it. Its low on theory and high on applicability. I like it that way. By the way..the theory can be summed up in one word- surrender/non resistance. Although the...

Another teacher who teaches exactly the same..

Robert Scheinfeld. He teaches exactly what Arnold teaches, however he talks with references to quantum physics etc. I read Arnold's book('You can Have It all'- the blurb quotes Oprah saying this is one of the most important books she has read) first, but I understood the concept clearly when I read ...

Re: MIND AS THE ENEMY

Leon,

I will go back to your post possibly again and again because its the best example I have seen of disagreeing lovingly :)
You also stated your truths clearly(again lovingly).

It doesn't matter if you are a nontheist. I am happy that you have a way that works for you:)

Arnold Patent

He is another master who uses different words but talks about the same thing. Most of his philosophy can be summed up as: What we think of God is how we experience the world as. Eg: If you see God as loving, then you will practice non resistance(as he is everything). He also puts importance on the N...

Re: MIND AS THE ENEMY

I feel making mind the enemy is forgetting a basic truth. The basic of all great teachings is that there is an Intelligent One Being and everything is its manifestation. This being doesn't make mistakes. Many teachers calls it perfection. Eckhart mentions mind( ha ha) sees problems. Both the same. W...

Re: getting in touch with inner body

Ila, I have been through what you are talking about. Although not regarding food/weight issues. I have been having psoriasis(a skin illness that apparently doesn't have a cure) and have been trying to solve it using body awareness. It went about the awareness part the way you talked about and it fru...
