Re: Money worries

This is something that I find bothersome. While I was never rich, I wasn't poor either. I think financial health is monumental for a better life. The money can literally buy a better education, lifestyle, and is clearly better than no money. No more is the root of evil lol Obviously, you can get to...

Re: Money worries

From a practical point it's relatively simple. Live within a budget that brings you peace of mind. Generally speaking, expansion feels better than contraction. This is key. So live in an atmosphere of growing resources. It just feels better. You'll want to get a clear knowledge of your income. Then...

Re: Regret unconcious decisions

Dear forum, Now that I am enlightened I realise that I have been very unconcious. I have made a lot of unconcious decisions, egoistic even. I now regret decisions I have made, which I know is in turn unconscious. How do I deal with this feeling of guilt? Should I tell people I have lied to cover up...

Re: Pain body when waking up

When we wake up, it seems like the pain body is at its worst. I try not to have breakfast with my wife because I know her pain body is so strong before she gets her coffee and some food. I am also not the nicest person when I wake up. I like to go jogging in the yard first thing in the morning. My ...

Re: Ego in marriage

I know everything in theory, so to say, but in real life i am constantly reacting automaticly, as i have learnt many years ago. Almost every day i have to eat chips or something sweet to calm my consciousness down, coz i am under stress, frustrated. And then in the morning i ask myself how i couldn...

Re: Leaf in the wind

I am currently learning about Sanskrit and the Yoga Sutras. I am learning about the 5 paths to suffering (egoism, ignorance, clinging to this life, aversion, attachment). I am coming to realize that all paths lead to failure as the Buddha said. I am still a man and I am searching for my place. It fe...

Re: Back from the Eckhart Tolle spiritual retreat 2017 in No

I like this thread and the sharing that went on in here. I am curious as to what insights came to mind once those who "stopped looking" and "seeking salvation?" I think people do this with mentors, teachers, religion, LTRs, marriage, some X factor etc. which cannot give fulfillment EVER. I am being ...

Re: Back from the Eckhart Tolle spiritual retreat 2017 in No

better yet throw it in the garbage and give up. I spent twice the amount of years you have seeking the answer, seeking salvation before I realized there is no salvation. This is it Yup. Only took 8 years for me :lol: :lol: :lol: Thing is...you really can't tell someone else. They won't believe you,...

Re: Back from the Eckhart Tolle spiritual retreat 2017 in No

I have been considering that i shoud reestructure my practicing of Echart's teachings. The main reason is that after the retreat in Norway I have left with a much clear feeling that something I am doing is not the way it should be. To start with, after almost 14 years of reading his books, watching...

Re: Back from the Eckhart Tolle spiritual retreat 2017 in No

One of the oldest saying is, "never meet your hero(s)." I was thinking about it but, I saw the price and its pretty expensive. The retreat by itself is not cheap but, its based upon a dual occupancy, plus a flight, and add-on(s). I guess when you are a 'big deal,' it is sort of to be expected for su...

Re: Leaf in the wind

I want a thank you again for that awesome video. I think i need to listen to it a few more times to fully grasp the wisdom from it, to extrapolate the essence, and substance of it all. When I wrote this, I felt like the guy who asked the question, was in a pretty chaotic place, and you could say, i ...

Re: Ego in marriage

Thanks for your answer. You are totaly right. See first ego in yourself. That happened to me today. I was fighting with my husbund something, and then i realized, it is ego in me. Yes its also in him, but can be only responsible for my own actions. So i stopped fighting, and suddenly he came to me,...

Re: Ego in marriage

i don't know much about marriage but, sex is a great outlet. I am single and wanting to learn the karma sutra and tantra. I think there are levels one can achieve single but, there are levels that the unity of marriage can bring a man and woman. That symbolism of the two becoming one is pretty power...

Re: Divorce and soul alignment

I realise that your partner is supposed to be your teacher, and the suffering is to draw you out of the ego kind. - Apolloislost There will be difficulties and negativity whether you're alone or with someone. So, you have a choice: 1. Stay and practice presence with your relationship difficulties a...
