Welcome Koan

Like you said, Eckhart's humility and clarity grow on us. Then there is the plain fact that what he says works and is not complicated and does not need adherence to a group or guru. This is just a quick hello, as it's time for me to sign offline.

Thankful for moods and situations that call for Presence

I do not think that any external circumstances will make a difference except temporarily before I go back to this set point and find something to be upset about. Hello Barbara, Currently I am in some very overwhelming circumstances with no way out on the horizon. At least by now I know that if I di...

Heart Center or Third Eye Center

Hi dancer, What has happened to many of us in Western countries is that we have adopted meditation methods that bypass our other centers and focus mostly only on the Ajna-third eye center. Only a few months ago I came across the view at a few online sites that the Heart center is the central one and...

Diet and exercise and other factors for brain health

Sandy, can you write more about the anti-depression diet? INDI I am not able to touch type and have to look back and forth from a book to the keyboard, so it will take a while to get the book and set up to scan in some text to my computer that I can paste in here. Fortunately I was able to find a p...

It's all a part of life

Any of us older folks here have had the experience or many experiences of acceptance or rejection in a relationship we think we would like to have. It is all a part of life. It is not the end of the world when someone does not want us, although it may seem that way for a short while or even a long w...

Deja Vu?

singh wrote:Nobody realy answered the question about deja vu :?:
Singh, can you describe the sensations and experience that you have when you think it is deja vu? Do you feel like you have been somewhere before or that you are doing things you have done before -- but have not actually been there or done that?

Vision and Action -- See and Do

Yes it is! For me, it's not desire, it's more like vision and action. I work on this principle: The universe is all fullfilling. If you Need (not complete without it), and that is fulfilled, you will continue to need, the needing is manifested since that's what you chose. But if you See and act, it...

Re: Desires...Anyone?

Is it really wrong to have desire even if you are not identified from your mind. Is there really a way to get to one place to another. The joy within is good for the inner purpose. I wanted to know what about the outer purpose...is it really possible to manifest those desires into reality? This is ...

Hi Bob and welcome

I am not always in a situation where I can read weekdays but, often even at work, it is quite appropriate to have on earphones and be listening to Tolle CDs.

Hello again Singh

You say that I seem to really care. When someone sees another suffering greatly like we used to suffer, it is natural to have sincerity and compassion. Thank you for your thanks and for sharing about your problems on and off with taking drugs. Addictive drugs can lead to less and less control over o...

Suicide and Depression - my experience for Singh

Hello Singh, Thoughts of suicide can come from difficult circumstances in our lives that make us despair. That is the kind of depression that can go away if our circumstances become better. There is another kind of Depression that is a serious medical condition. It can occur more often in some famil...

"I would describe it as a "letting go of" or a "stepping back from" the present moment". I felt the need to further explain this statement. The present moment up to this point has been something the ego has been "engaged" with. The ego has been struggling with the present moment trying to allow it ...

Re: core beliefs....

Your post made me cry, Sandy. I like what you said in your post, Phil. Tolle speaks of a returning to spiritual truth and to our true Nature, Unconditional Love. We are all ONE. Love is a Miracle. Life is a Miracle. And Tolle mentioned we are at the critical point now and our survival depends on ma...

Feeling the body instead of stuck in the head

"Sandy, do you practice inner body awareness? Going into the body? Feeling the body from within? The PON book goes into detail about this, and this is a great portal for going beyond thought, for not thinking. It has been very helpful for me. My mind slows down, and even stops when I go into the bo...
