The heart of transformation

When I first felt transformation happening, I wanted to let go of my humanness, I wanted to escape all the pain, the suffering, I wanted to hide in a shell of "spirituality". But it turns out that transformation isn't really about spiritual ideas, it's not about achieving something or getting to som...

Nathan Gill: Spiritual Life Spiritual life has no particular relevance to clarity – it is simply part of the play of life. But because of what appears in the play as the individual’s evolution through progressively ‘higher’ or finer stages of life, it is confused as a prerequisite to clarity. The o...

I am a master

Eckhart has said " I am a master and so are you".

If you can't see the truth in what he is saying then it's because you're too busy looking for the truth in what he is saying.

Utter simplicity or Clarity

It's in the nature of the dream, of the ego, to seek in the future. Part of that seeking in the future is the illusion that there is something to seek. Which means of course that the present moment in some way is not good enough. Quite often that translates into believing there's a right way and a w...

The experience

I've mentioned many times before about the inner dimension opening up. Well it did it again this morning, and I wanted to share what happens. When I get this feeling, it's as if I get a call from god and he says I'm coming to visit. So, I usually sit quietly and am completely caught up in the feelin...

The very thing that motivates all evolution is our inbuilt preference of pleasure over pain. Without it, there could be no life in a dualistic world. I suppose that most, if not all of our preferences stem from this very fundamental part of every human being, spiritually enlightened or not. If I we...

Re: Shattering and Breaking Ego

Milarepa readily agreed, totally shattered and heartbroken. He rebuilt the house, stone by stone, and a year later went to get his teacher and show it to him. And the same thing happened, this went on for over twenty years. Over the years Milarepa's ego was totally eroded. Thanks Din, This has trem...

Just be nice for eachother guys... In this case I think that reacting on a friendly and patient way will do more good to the forum in general than reacting on an unfriendly and impatient way. Do you not see that having a preference on eric's behaviour is just more story? Why not allow eric all the ...

Kindness/compassion/acceptance: I was drawn to this topic because of it's title. Kindness, compassion and acceptance are the core of peace, but for some these concepts can be misunderstood, where that spaciousness can be manipulated and turned into a sort of codependent enabling where the "allowing...

Sometimes I see people interacting and using that spaciousness created by acceptance to fill up themselves at the expense of others. They fill the space with needs to create a reaction and then find satisfaction in "correcting" those who react. Is this really a discussion of spaceousness? Or is it ...

Hi Israel, Great post! Thanks. Now I know that in this present moment I will experience the truth of my inner Being simply by allowing my awareness to be filled with the Presence of the Now. This sentence will eventually become much simpler as concepts and beliefs fall away. All that will be left is...

Tibet's great teacher Milarepa

Milarepa was a student and his teacher asked him to build a house for him. Milarepa readily agreed, he was quite anxious to please his teacher. Milarepa gathered all the stones that he could find in the area and started building the house, stone by stone. After a year or so, the house was finished, ...
