Re: Not 100% onboard with everything Tolle says, but he has a lot of good points. Open to discuss.

So if our inner purpose is to awaken and it doesn't matter what our outer purpose is...well, we all still have to make a living and pay the bills right? Will the Universe just grant us everything we want after awakening? Yes, when we live in alignment with our inner/primary purpose, we will still h...

Re: Is conscioussness an idiot?

(For some reason, I can't access the first post from Astan to click on and quote from, so I'll do this a different way:) "There is a lot of talk about consciousness which is beyond body, feelings, thoughts, etc." -Astan I don't think Consciousness is beyond body, feelings, thoughts, etc. Rather, Con...

Re: how do I remain present while being with my memories?

Do any of you have advice about how to maintain that balance? Or any other reflections on how to go about dwelling with thoughts, as I must do in order to write, without losing oneself in them, without becoming unconscious? This "technique" might be helpful: Before you bring attention to the though...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I know it's solipsism. But how can I prove it isn't true? Becoming aware of what is aware of your finite mind (i.e. your passing thoughts, feelings, perceptions) might be a good place to start in discovering what is and isn't true. But the 'feeling' won't shift in my head, which is what it is norma...

Re: Is it God?

For me, this is how Jesus figures into it : Jesus represents the idea of "little me"/the seemingly-separate self... the "Son" who must be crucified if we are to see the "Father". After crucifixtion, the Son rises from the dead and returns to Heaven.... After the "death" of the illusion of the separa...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I got the point where I was thinking that everything is just an illusion of my mind. I'm not real. Proper aren't real. I create them. When I can't see them they don't exist. They're just illusions. I've got a severe flu and I ran out of paracetamol. My mother said she'd drop me some off. I keep thi...

Re: Eckhart, why no miracles?

This is a true miracle - being in present with everything. I agree with that :D I remember in one of his talks (although I can't remember which one), Eckhart told about a time when he saw a famous magician hold his breath under water for a really long time. Eckhart said he got to meet the guy off s...

Re: Processing Trauma

One of the things that I feel I am struggling with is the proposition that its is futile to work through past pain or trauma. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not sure Eckhart (or any other spiritual teacher) has proposed that it's "futile" to work through past pain or trauma. I think he (an...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

It is natural to feel disappointed or sad etc up to a point. It is when these thoughts rule you that it becomes a problem. Yes. :) Regarding ye olde ego.. (Although Kiki already addressed this, I'd just like to add some stuff:) Yes, ego tries to dissolve ego... which only strengthens ego. :wink: Ho...

Re: Anyone recovered from Severe Anxiety?

Rupert Spira says we have to face the fear in one of his videos and he says that’s the only way through it. What happens when you fear the fear though? In that case, you explore your fear of fear and find out what it's made of. Have you seen this one? (If not, then I recommend it. Its a good one. :...
