Re: Why no sublime sense of Depth and Being?

Thanks for the replies, it is reassuring to know that others have found something significant and important through their own endeavours. Sounds likely that I just haven't spent enough time in true meditation to get beyond this stage. My biggest fear has been that there really isn't anything real to...

Why no sublime sense of Depth and Being?

I have been seeking the deeper 'truth' that Eckhart points to, off and on, for over a decade.

The worst situation I can (reasonably) imagine...

BEING ‘PRESENT’ AT A TIME OF UNBEARABLE PAIN AND DISTRESS FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES First I'd like to paint a rather harrowing scenario (so please don't read on if you are sensitive).
