Re: My 100 days of presence

Hi zevza. I'm sorry no one has said hello before now, it seems like this forum has gone quiet for some reason. Some questions: 1. Have you started your 100 days? 2. Are you saying you're trying for 100% presence in every one of those days? Is that a realistic goal? 3. If that is your goal, what if y...

Re: A Question About Forgiveness & Forgetting

I think epiphany has done an excellent job describing why we should have compassion and forgive those who do things we think are wrong or hurtful. I'll add that, in the words of Eckhart Tolle, our minds are conditioned. We do not see the world as it is, we see the world through the filter of our con...

Re: A beautiful mind & 3 acts of creativity, madness & awake

Hi Vinay, nice post! It's been a long time since I've seen the film and I've never read the book but you definitely sparked my interest in both. I find it very interesting that you say that madness is something we all go through, because that is exactly the premise of my book "We are All Innocent by...

Re: Need Help Curing Depression

Hi Danny, I just noticed your response, and in particular to webwanderer. I was about to write this: This forum is blessed to have someone as wise and generous as webwanderer. I think his advice here is splendid. The ego is a storyteller. It evolved for that purpose, and there are good reasons for i...

Hi Mr. Wilson, welcome to the forum. That interview sounds like a must listen, I hadn't heard of it before. Thanks for mentioning it!

Re: What does 'spirituality' mean to you?

To me, spirituality is the exploration of life to raise awareness of life and enhance quality of life . I like this, Jack. I used to think spirituality meant God had to be involved in some way or other, so when I first got interested in these things 25+ years ago, I said I was into "higher consciou...

Re: All Boundaries are Conventions waiting to be transcended

Webwanderer wrote: You've been there. And there was here when it was present in your experience.
This makes me think of a saying from est:

You can't get there from here.
You can only be here.
And when you're here, you're there.

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

What an awesome post E2B! It brought to mind this song my husband wrote as part of the musical version of We are ALL Innocent; this song was written for someone he'd grown up with who is mentally ill: You’ve heard us say the human race is all insane but what’s that say of you? Who’ve struggled with ...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

That is beautiful karmarider. I have heard other people say the same things about depression being a gateway to the spiritual experience. You are so right about the fact that most people are just pretending their way through life. It's really sad but true. This is why the average person watches 4-5 ...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

I did watch the video Jen. :) As ironic as this sounds... I finally went to see a doctor this week and I've been diagnosed with depression. :( It's hard. I don't even know whether its just the voice in my head or not but I just feel so incredibly sad, hopeless, and frustrated with everything. I don...

Re: Tom Campbell-Holographic Evolution

Actually Kathleen, your post brings us back to the closest we've been in a LONG time to the actual video of the thread. yay! :lol: Since you mentioned evolution, that's what Tom Campbell talks about in the video a bit. But, not so much physical evolution (although he acknowledges that), but evoluti...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

Hey KB. I've heard many spiritual type people use that metaphor. I assume it goes back to ancient India (based on there being a lot of onions in Indian food and a long history of spiritual exploration there). I didn't think you thought of it as a negative thing. I was referring to the other context...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

What a lovely story, jen. Thank you so much for sharing. I like your spin on the onion, Jack. That metaphor is mine, as far as I know (my husband and I have been using it for 20 years or so). I actually don't think of it as a negative thing either. Where it came from was Arthur's and my pushback aga...
