Re: Feeling lost and shakey on this journey. Support welcome

I think that what we are is completely available to us, all of it, although we might not be familiar with looking at it all at once. We might spend a lot of time with relationships in the family or with work or with thoughts and feelings and so many aspects of what we are or of life remain unfamilia...

Re: Tolle, or Eastern approaches vs. Christianity

Save us from what? I think you will recognize the theme. By our sins we have become separated from god. But God sends his son Jesus to take upon himself responsibility for all our sins, for which he is put to death. In this way Jesus saves us from the wrath of god. By believing in Jesus act of sacr...

Re: Tolle, or Eastern approaches vs. Christianity

Now, to ask and pray for Jesus to save us with the promise that he will do it, is a message that is both simple to understand and easy to carry out. Through Jesus we have peace with god. What do you think about that message? Isn't peace with god to connect to truth? Believe in Jesus and he will take...

Re: A gradual awakening

It is not obvious. On the contrary it is a very perplexing thing: Something is experiencing itself as being not itself and it can't figure out how it is done or undone. Some say it can be seen that it it so, then it is resolved but it still goes on, just like it always was. Since art interests you, ...

Re: Kids complicate things

I once was in a similar situation to the one you describe, our three kids are now all past twenty. If you decide to stay for now for the sake of the children that seems as a natural and fine choice by me. You could even suggest some couple counselling with moderate hope of change with a few issues, ...

Re: Kids complicate things

Hi Michael, have you ever felt or noticed that she tries to turn the children against you in an argument? I'm asking because I believe that someone using children as allies is a poor sign. If you feel that your children truly do not understand what is taking place, it can be a good idea to explain t...

Re: Suffocating thoughts

Hi, it's a remarkably rare thing to find lasting peace. Perhaps it is a different question entirely. Sometimes it is because of the idea of always feeling well that we suffer from thoughts and feelings. In it's absence, the absence of a complete solution, why not go for some temporary ones: Counsell...

Re: trouble thinking

Hi, what was the nature of your realisation when "I believe I lost much of my ego after years of intense suffering" happened? Perhaps it was a meaningful and powerful change but even change must continue (I believe) or we stagnate in a state - we might stagnate there because it appeared as the solut...

Re: Is happiness a choice or something to aim for?

I don't know exactly what you mean by obstacles, but there must be some amount of freedom to do the things which are natural for you, because to constantly be under obligation or pressure is not a good starting point. And there must be at least a little passion for something outwardly, no? Some inte...

Re: Is happiness a choice or something to aim for?

You can't simply choose to be happy, or I should say that I can't but perhaps you can, it is what comes when we live right, well, but I don't know what that means for you, in the sense I don't know what you want and what is important for you. Perhaps you can tell me a little about it.

Re: Is happiness a choice or something to aim for?

Hi, maybe this answer won't satisfy you either :) , but I think that to begin with, what is simple but genuine is the beginning of the road of happiness. If you are kind, explore kindness, dare to be kind and take this position in your life. If you are generous, explore it, what does it mean to you,...

Re: Why is there so much resistance to presence?

It's a long way to walk, there is resistance in the way we think, the way we feel, the way we perceive, the way we act, the way we relate. It's not just the mind/thought. I don't mean to discourage you. At times it is interesting, at times frightening, difficult, hard to understand, deep, lonely, co...

Re: An Increase in Pressure

Hi Rustus, I don't know the nature of your fears so I can't really tell what is best to do. Fear is in my opinion one of the central psychological issues in this life, the other being desire. Fear and lack. I do think however, besides the observing, that right thinking regarding our fears is (or can...

Re: Separating between thoughts and knowledge

Hiya. I'm wondering how you guys separate things you inherently know from things which are just thoughts in your mind? I'm having a hard time separating the two. When I'm trying to see the deep connections between my thought patterns and emotions, and I think I might have the answer - how can I kno...

Re: How can I be free of ego in social challenges

I know your question is how you can be free of ego in relationship. We may ask this question because it is logical that in finding the answer to that question we would be free from conflicts with people. I think however we must take some time to see the ego exactly as it is in relationships, because...
