how to post my questions

Hi I've been writing down a lot of questions regarding some of the things Eckhart talks about. I have dozens of them. Is it okay to ask them as separate posts in other forums. Or should I bunch all of them (or some of them) together in order to not flood the forum. I'm not sure that I will ask the q...

Re: accepting appearance

Has anyone else suffered from appearance related issues? Hi inner power I suspect most people in our Western culture experience some degree of suffering/insecurity related to their physical appearance. A significant percentage of them are probably obsessed, which makes their suffering more intense....

Re: Almost Every Video of Tolle is going down

Hi Nick I can understand your frustration, and at the same time I can understand the decision to remove videos that were uploaded illegally. There is still a lot of free Eckhart content, on YouTube and elsewhere. Here is Eckhart's official YouTube channel, which features dozens of videos: www.youtub...

Re: Using My Hand to Cover My Navel (Belly Button)

I do Qi Gong. The opening position is to place hand over belly button (dantien), left for men, right for women. The opposite hand is held at the neck even with the collar bone. It is very relaxing and grounding. Thanks for your input. I don't know what Qi Qong is, although I've seen the term once o...

Re: Hi

Welcome, Stormy. Looking forward to your participation. Thanks. I figured I'd come back to add more information to my introduction. I hope I’m not writing too many comments. I first heard of Eckhart around 2005, and I read most of The Power of the Now . Maybe all of it? But it didn't have a noticea...

Re: Using My Hand to Cover My Navel (Belly Button)

That's quite interesting. It's a very unusual mudra, I can't say I have ever run into it in yoga circles. Are you using the same hand every time? Can you give the other hand a try and let us know what happens? Is there a difference? I use both hands. But I prefer to use my right hand. I don't think...

Re: Using My Hand to Cover My Navel (Belly Button)

I use this as well. Sometimes it seems to help. I think it has something to do with the Manipura chakra, if there is such thing, maybe it balances it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manipura Thanks for letting me know your experience. It sounds like the method works better for some people than others...

Re: Tolle on anti-depressants / anti-anxiety meds (video lin

Hi qtip I recently listened to the entire 10-part (15-hour) Eckhart/Oprah webcast, and azoo is correct -- Eckhart seems to discourage anti-depressants and other psychiatric medication. (And I heartily agree with Eckhart on this issue.) I suspect that he would like to take a stronger stance, but it s...

Re: Need some SERIOUS advice about this situation

If you just put aside for one moment this relationship, and look at your needs for a second. You need certain things - sex, love, attention ... if you are not going to get them from this relationship then you need to get them from somewhere else. Hi Rideforever There are probably thousands (maybe m...

Hi

After spending a few hours reading some of the threads, I feel grateful for this site.

Some of things Eckhart talks about have really helped me. And this forum seems like a great way to share what helps and ask questions.

Re: the past

The anti depressants are working really well and i feel as if i'm becoming more present. I found out recently i have ADD and i'm going on the medication for that in a couple months. I feel things are getting better for me. Because i was so focused on the past before it's bit harder to let go of but...

Using My Hand to Cover My Navel (Belly Button)

A couple months I discovered something... When I gently place my hand (especially the palm of my hand) on my navel (belly button) I feel more peaceful. I don't lift up my shirt. It's not skin on skin contact. I just place my hand on top of my belly button, which is usually covered by my shirt. Throu...

Re: Am I trying too hard to get into the Now

In some way I consider myself relatively new to Eckhart's teachings. But I figured I'd offer something. I remember in one of Eckhart's videos... a person mentions something about seeking to be in the now. And Eckhart responds by saying that we don't have to seek to be in the now. We can just be awar...
