Re: A question to the group-Reality Check

Matter and Energy are two very different concept. they do not mix with each other. This belief is broken when physicist shows that matter can convert to energy. (Atomic bomb, H bomb etc). Human history has repeatedly showed that seemingly distinct concepts are eventually one. From the deepest of you...

Re: A question to the group-Reality Check

One of the greatest impediments to deeper self-realization is unscientific language
Kiki,
I am not sure how to explain the meaning of the above statement further.

How about: scientific approach is the only hope for deepening self-realization (at a level beyond Tolle)

Re: Is imagination egoic?

When a baby of a few months old is staring at a toy, an adult put a towel over the toy. The baby no longer sees the toy, she loses interest, or shows some frustration. To her, the toy no longer exists. However, psychologists found that some baby of several months old have developed the 'imagination'...

Re: Poor Man's Intuition

When I create a database table, I often add some constraints (such as some columns only accept number, and if you type in alphabet, the database will reject it). A table without such constraint (enforcement) will also work, but you will waste some precious time. I think Tolle's name change to Eckhar...

Luminous inner body

Inhabit luminous inner body. See the whole body as a bright object. We know that bright light often catch a baby's attention, so it is human nature to pay attention to something bright. This (luminousness) may make it easy to put attention on the body, and stay in that state longer. The word luminou...

Re: Migraine or Pain Body over Stress at Work

CCBCPA, Maybe you could try this trick to heal your migraine. Inside your head, see the extreme absurd best case scenario. you go to the meeting, the IRS guy turned out to be your long lost uncle. the meeting went well. after the meeting, your uncle give you one billion dollar out of his own pocket,...

Re: By his own logic, Tolle is insane.

Teacher's teaching is like a piece of food. It is the student's responsibility to break it down, to extrac its nutritious part and assimilate it, discard the rest. After reading Tolle's quote (the earth has a lot of ugliness, insanity), the important question is "are you able to assimilate from Toll...

Re: Acts of the New Awakening

I would like to start a thread so that we can share acts (no matter how small) that have touched our hearts or made us think that there is plenty of humanity and connectedness out there. This can be a special time of year to remember that not matter what we celebrate, we are one and give when neede...

Re: Don’t trade this moment for ANYTHING!

Don't trade this moment for ANYTHING! Indeed. Suffering happens during the trading. Suffering continues when that 'ANYTHING' (billionaire, or president of the country), turns out not as what they promise to be. Mike, if you write your book in this attitude (not trade any moment for your book), then ...

Re: Call to Action

Maybe this is a generally applicable principle: if not many people explicitly asking you to teach how to be peaceful, then you are not qualified to teach . When the stillness is very deep, and disruption to that deep stillness is very rare, then people around you will automatically be attracted to y...

CFSLosAngeles, Although I would prefer to read ground breaking truly innovative books, I enjoyed reading your two little book exerpts. They are clear and easy to read (no mumble jumble). Their transformation power is clear. I believe what you are doing is amplifying 'what is known', and surprisingly...

Re: Do you ever feel like you're rude by being spiritual?

When Byron Katie ran into an old friend, "How is your mom?" asked her friend, Katie's reply was "She is great, she is dead". Spiritual people's view of life is very different from most other people. Spiritual people's behavior can easily be misunderstood and considered to be rude. I wonder why Tolle...

Re: Isn't Discussion Generating More Thinking?

I basically told the guy he was going to burn in hell. I was livid, and laughed at myself at the kookiness of the whole dynamic. Tolle said that one can not predict what will come out of presence, he does not even rule out physical violence. So verbal violence certainly does not necessarily mean on...
