To rachMiel, dijmart, and Webwanderer:

Thank you very much for your beautifully expressed and thought provoking answers to my question about the Unmanifested, the Source and God. I will do as Webwanderer suggests.

Re: Does the Unmanifested, The Source, God really exist insi

Tolle starts with very practical advice about how to control the mind, discontinue thinking, avoid the past and future. I found this advice immensely helpful and I am very grateful to Tolle. But then he invokes the supernatural to create the concept that he calls either the Unmanifested, the Source ...

Re: Awakening

I found Baba Bozo's comments interesting in general and not disturbing. I can summarize what I took from her message in quoting two of her statements: "Tolle can help us manage our very ordinary little situation, and that's great." Precisely. Tolle caught me how to concentrate upon the Now. That cha...

Re: How to Access Being

Thanks, Tomazs, for the further clarification.

I am still open to comments. But I will repeat the question I started this collection with: Can anyone else say they have experienced joy and love through Being?

Hi again, runstrails:

You provided me a full education this time, especially with Kiki's excellent analysis. I have nothing to add, but I welcome any new comments.

Re: How to Access Being

Hi, Tomasz:

An excellent summary of this play on words. I can't imagine how it could have been done better. It clears my mind. Thank you.

Re: How to Access Being

Hi, runstrails:

I am the one who is aware of the thinker, who at present is not thinking. When I suspend thinking, I remain conscious and watch for my thoughts to emerge. I believe that is what Tolle recommends.

Re: How to Access Being

Thanks, dijmart What you say is very interesting. I, like you, experience peace when I can suspend the mind chatter. And I am so grateful for the peace. Maybe that is all I should expect. I believe I can get a hold on this without getting into metaphysics. I had developed skepticism about some of To...

Re: How to Access Being

hi again, Dijmart Congratulations. It is very possible you are right in saying that I have been there but did not recognize it. I am very interested in Tolle's conception of God, as I believe it is basically that of the great philosopher Spinoza. From now on when I believe I am in the state of Now (...

Re: How to Access Being

Hi, dijmart:

I understand the position you have expressed. But I am still interested in hearing from anyone who can say they accessed Being, God, and enjoyed the experience. I would certainly like to.

Re: How to Access Being

Hi, runstrails:

A good Question.

When I suspend thinking, I remain aware and watch for thoughts to reach me. When a thought does, especially if it is unpleasant, I banish it by saying to myself, "Delete." Then I continue in my state of awareness without thinking.

How to Access Being

Thanks to Mr. Tolle, I have learned to suspend thinking for substantial periods of time. This is a great boon for which I am very thankful. But Mr. Tolle says that if you go deeper inside (how do you do that?) you can access Being, which he believes is synonymous with God, and experience love and jo...

Re: Tolle Criticism

Reply to Ashley72:

You express my opinion on the importance of affirmative thinking in lieu of Now in some circumstances that I can add nothing to it.

Best Wishes,
