Re: Commitment (End of Suffering PT 2)

I read with no thought, just awareness. I very much doubt this. Sure, you read from the spaciousness of awareness. But in order to process what is presented in printed form, the language, syntax, meaning etc., mentation is required. Further to that, a subtle perspective on what you have read may we...

Re: My deepest questions

Yes, of course, what I think or imagine I need and what I actually need can be quite different. Ekhart makes this point when he says something like, "Sure, you can sit quietly in presence and being and hope someone puts food in your mouth, and that might happen - probably not in the Western world b...

Re: My deepest questions

Doesn't your body/form need to breathe, eat, drink or sleep to survive? Ramana's did, Tolle's does, Nisargadatta's did, if it doesn't do these things it (body), will die. It doesn't matter what word you use. The word "need" is only powerful if you think it's powerful. He could have said "the body h...

Re: ET and ACIM

Peas, you're making statements and over generalizing about a specific subject matter within a specific context that I highly doubt you're all that familiar with, but I could be wrong. Are you extremely familiar with ACIM, Ken Wapnick´s work, and Gary Renard´s books? If so, you would understand my s...

Re: Do we have trolling rules?

Ok, now this is getting rediculous. Are you aware of what you are proposing? That by me bringing up a hole in the policy of this website, and showing good cause by linking to relevant cases, I am bullying. It seems that we do not know what bullying is. Bullying is not asking for a policy and giving ...

Re: Do we have trolling rules?

It should also be pointed out the myriad of stories of people who have been deeply affected by trolling and cyberbullying. If we do not spell out what these two behaviours are, and that they are completely unacceptable in this community, then we are closing our eyes in a potentially harmful way. Not...

Re: Paranoia and ego loss

Indeed we can all have moments of this type of auto-behaviour. It is part of the conditioned mind. Notice how I do not need to even say "my conditioned mind"? That's because it is one collective form structure that we inherit by being human. It is not personal, and observing the personal nature of o...

Re: can you get eckhart tolle to talk about social anxiety?

Ashley, by now you know that I am not interested in your neuroscience material or any other scientific material you have been sharing. I've made it very clear, and if there is any ounce of muddyness, let me ask you right now in plain and simple language: please stop trolling me by posting scientific...

Re: My deepest questions

As far as I can tell, all living beings need to breathe, eat, drink, sleep - our bodies even contain biological clocks that function in the horizontal dimension. It is not either/or. It seems you are creating a duality that doesn't truly exist - I am both formless and form, and the form needs to ea...

Re: Do we have trolling rules?

Personally I've found alternate view points to be greatly beneficial to my growth. Learning to love and respect contradictory views as the product of a Divine Being has been expansive for me. Of course I respect whatever the moderators decide. I am their humble guest ;) Love, Jack I do to. Otherwis...

Re: can you get eckhart tolle to talk about social anxiety?

The very essence of the ego is at the core of anxiety and depression. It is a bondage that does not need to exist. Are you saying the ego does not need to exist, or are you referring to the anxiety and depression as not needing to exist? Or is it both? WW It is a necessary part of the evolution of ...

Re: Do we have trolling rules?

No idea how that was relevant, but anyhow... there is no mention of trolling, which was my question. Can we add some trolling rules as per this part of the rules:

"These rules are incomplete. Each new rule is added as the necessity for it arises"

Do we have trolling rules?

I am wondering if we have trolling rules on these forums? I haven't been able to locate them. Something along the lines of these points, among others: A troll is someone who destroys the positive atmosphere of a forum community. They can be obnoxious and aggressive, or they can be passive aggressive...

Re: Is a photon the basic unit of information flow?

Three weeks since last post. Hmmm.

All I can guess is the questions were too hard for you. No shame in that.

Re: can you get eckhart tolle to talk about social anxiety?

Social Anxiety is not special. It is just an intense fear of the unknown. And if we follow fear to its end we find it cannot exist without time - hence the power of now. So, Eckhart says be present. There you find all the answers, including answers about fear. Fear arises because we perceive someth...
