Re: Solitude and Awakening

Glad you are reading her book right now, it looks good. I read a few articles about others who were living in solitude and it seems more common than i thought. Certain people are indeed attracted to that lifestyle. What about you personally, have you spent any time in solitude? Do you spend any time...

Re: Solitude and Awakening

Interesting article, thank you for sharing it with us. Yes, i think so too that these people lose their sense of self and feel at one with the larger world. However, few of us would be willing to live like they live. I never was into backpacking or being alone for extended periods like that. But i h...

Re: How can we do our bit for spreading awakening?

Nice thread. WW brought up great ideas on helping others, spreading awakening. And RT you seem to know what this is all about and have a good heart and want to help. I dont have any ideas on how to help but will share some tidbits from personal experience. I read a lot and carry a spiritual book wit...

Re: The Afterlife of Billy Fingers

Here is a review of the book by a NDEer, someone who has experienced the afterlife firsthand. There is a part two at the bottom if one is interested, to read further. Enjoy.

Re: The Afterlife of Billy Fingers

I am finally getting around to reading this book. I bought it at Goodwill for a few bucks. I have read a lot on NDEs and similar topics. I am a little less than halfway through it, and although some of it is intriguing, so far the message the brother is delivering is different than most of what i re...

What is Tolle up to these days?

I have read all of Tolles books and occasionally re-read them. I dont think he has had any new books out for awhile and dont know if he is planning on writing any more? For those who still follow him deeply, via webcasts or retreats, etc, can you tell me what he is up to these days? What does he tal...

Thank you Turiya, for that video link. It was good and helpful. It does help explain Ramanas teachings in a different context, expression.

Re: Ramana Maharshis Who am I? I need help understanding it

Oak Tree, glad you are following and living Ramanas teachings too. Thanks for sharing a little how it has touched your daily life. I have read a little of Robert Adams and find him very good. I read many different sources and they all help to elucidate Ramanas teachings better as well as Tolles etc....

Re: Ramana Maharshis Who am I? I need help understanding it

I am not getting email notifications either, i think it is not working, nor if you get private messages. I still am very interested in hearing how others live Ramanas teachings such as these in their daily lives. How has his teachings transformed your daily life? How do you take this knowledge or un...

Hi Dij, Good to see you. I am well and hope you are well too! Thanks for chiming in. The first post you wrote, regarding quotes one and two is very helpful, spot on, i get it, it makes perfect sense. Quote 3 gets a little more complicated, about how in the deep sleep state there is no mind and hence...
