An intelligent universe/God.... is it true?

Eckhart has said about the intelligence of life, of the universe. When I think of intelligence I think of something that can decide or something that makes plans, says yes or no, something that proactively does something. yet I also hear people (like adyashanti for one) who has said the universe/tru...

ego, suffering and what to do? Tired of going in circles.

Another suffering ego with a question. I think I need to rant a little, but with a purpose. Maybe to make a sense of this mess and for someone else to see where I'm going wrong or to just steer me onto the right path. This is the deal. I had an awakening, well in actuality it was an awakening out of...

Re: The Law Of Sensation

It was a rhetorical question :) I was just making the point that LOA isn't confined to material possessions. underneath everything is the same stuff. e=mc^2 and all that. so one can attract anything really, including mood and thought patterns like acceptance of sensations. So instead of thinking abo...

Re: Pressure in "Third Eye"

this third eye business seems a bit silly to me

maybe someone could explain it?

isn't this feeling between the eyebrows just stress or sinus trouble???!

Re: The Law Of Sensation

Why can't you attract acceptance? Can one only attract money and cars? :)

Isn't acceptance just another flow of energy in another form?

Nice turtle!

Re: The Law Of Sensation

Forget what Wikipedia says. That is just positive thinking which is grossly inadequate. Mind tends to go with what experience tells it (or rather its interpretation of experience). Using thoughts is an aid to LOA, not the means. The main mode of operation is belief which makes your body and mind wor...

Re: The Law Of Sensation

Should also say that I'm not disagreeing with the psychology perspective per se. Just the way the LOA works in my understanding. To merge what we both say together Bob Proctor has a recent video up on YouTube. I'm on the mobile right now so can't access it but it talks about overcoming that fear bar...

Re: The Law Of Sensation

Don't think I agree. The way I understand it the LOA isn't really to do with thoughts at all. When you are confident about something you don't have to think about it. It's not really about will. I don't know if there is an accurate way to describe it but the closest is having your whole body in a vi...

Re: Is it normal to lose presence?

yes, you will slip back into unconsciousness until you make it permanent by your total acceptance and devotion to it ... until you come to a point when you say 'you live' and I shall not ... a few weeks ago I had a huge sense of not being in control and of the "I"'s fear of non-existence. Presence ...

Is it normal to lose presence?

For a long time it seemed simple enough to tap in to presence. It was strong at times and very weak at others but always there to a degree. Now it seems to have gone altogether. There is still awareness but presence feels very slight or subtle only if I concentrate on it deeply enough. It just feel ...

Re: what makes spirituality spiritual?

Thanks. You've both done well to describe the 'spiritual journey'. A way to find out what's true and what's not and how this effects life. I guess as part of my journey I'd like to know what is 'spiritual' about the journey. Is spirit a loose term for having a different feel or take on life, wherein...

Re: what happened to ET during those days on the park bench?

ZenOfcaos, Tolle's primary message is realising your true nature which is deeper than thought. Your deeper nature is attentiveness. The park bench, is a place a person can go to relax and be attentive to the birds, the passing dogs, families, Jogger... without the need to attend to thoughts. Just s...

Re: what happened to ET during those days on the park bench?

Tolle's revelation, the insight that that came in that moment of intense pain and set his life on a new path, was that 'he was not what he thought '. All the identifiers of what he believed to be self were in an instant, recognized as misperceptions. The two years on the park bench were invested in...

Re: what makes spirituality spiritual?

that doesn't really make it spiritual or answer the question :?


Is spiruituality about accessing another 'spiritual' dimension or is it nothing more than psychology?

what makes spirituality spiritual?

Spirituality is banded around by many different groups and people. Tolle talks about the divine, presence, and being. But what exactly is spirituality? Is it to suggest that there is some higher power somewhere? And how do you know? Maybe presence is just the brain's awareness function being aware o...
