Re: Is it possible to awaken in many lives?

WW, ok, 'error' is too strong. This would make everyone depressive. That is not my intent. I was thinking of ACIM: separation is a tiny, mad idea which we forgot to laugh about and which we took seriously instead. This has caused the 3d realm of separate bodies. Ok, a tiny mad idea which has been ta...

Re: Is it possible to awaken in many lives?

Hi Maringa, I have read the books by Gary Renard (Disappearance of the Universe and two others). They explain A Course In Miracles in a very entertaining way. And, yes, they state exactly what you said. After enlightenment, there is no need to incarnate here again. This is just my belief. Of course,...

Re: Dying to be Me

Thanks for the review. I have read the book and found it great. At the end, there is a chapter about how her life unfolded in the being mode, where it is about wishing and allowing things to unfold. That was a great story about how Source works in miraculous ways once we let go of fear. There is a h...

Re: The Reality Slap - Dr Russ Harris ---

Hi Jen, thanks for the recommendation. Currently, I am reading other books from the category 'How to find peace of mind when shit hits the fan'. The books by Robert Schwartz, Your Soul's Plan and Your Soul's Gift. Both are about pre-birth planning of our life's challenges. For example, why would som...

Re: Line in the Sand?

rM, good point. I think this is exactly the core element of awakening. Pre-awakening world view: we beget consciousness. Then Copernican shift in world view. Post-awakening world view: consciousness begets us. I recall of Jed McKenna's book, Theory of Everything: He takes a blank sheet of paper and ...

Re: has anyone here been able to maintain their awakening?

Hi ND, I agree with Jen. It is a journey. Spiralling back and forth is normal. Like a kid who is trying to ride a bike, falling down and getting up again. Just keep trying. About making contact with others: we are like facets on a diamond. The shortest way to connect with another is right through ou...

Re: Finding a partner

This is no paradox. I find inner peace, the unconditional sort of inner peace, when I do the 180 degree inward looking meditation, as described on John Sherman's website. This is the connection to our real being. This is the hugging of the prodigal son by the Father. Great peace and quiet joy. On to...

Re: Finding a partner

A story comes to my mind which I read a while ago. It must have been in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. A woman ends a relationship and is totally annoyed and hopeless. In that state of desperation, she screams at God, "If you ever want me to get married again, you have to send me a guy and pu...

Re: Accidents

Onceler, of course, be skeptic and investigate. The good thing is that I don't need to make an effort to convince you. Because I know how the universe deals with stubborn children from my own painful experience. Therefore, I assume other skeptics will receive the same kind of (sometimes unkind ) tre...

Re: Accidents

Onceler, I can relate to this. For me , it seems to be the shortening of the strings ( = 'free ego will' ) with which the bodymind is attached to the single guiding hand ( Source). As the strings become shorter and shorter ( less and less free ego will) , the consequences of exerting free will becom...

Re: Intention, self and Self

Andy, I have written something in another thread ( on Determinism) which relates to your question: http://eckhart-tolle-forum.inner-growth.info/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13033&p=119600#p119600 Do you worry whether you are enlightened if you have an intent left in your actions? I think it is not whether th...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Hi, I have written something about this issue in a previous thread ( it is about a model of a giant invisible steering hand and the individuals attached with ever shortening strings): http://eckhart-tolle-forum.inner-growth.info/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12882&p=117116#p117116 This model fits best with my...

Re: Beyond Shame - the power of vulnerability - Brene Brown

Ooops! Apologies, Jen. You really did you use a double negation. I realize that I have to read more carefully.

I like your description of the creative process. Wonderful. You have been living that all your life.
