The opposite of resistance. The opposite of getting personally upset about it.

Re: Holosync

I think a bible quote will do nicely here. " I will baffle and render useless and destroy the learning of the learned and the philosophy of the philosophers and the cleverness of the clever and the discernment of the discerning; I will frustrate and nullify them and bring them to nothing." 1 Corinth...

Re: Holosync

I think this is mans foolish attempt at another quick fix, although i do find holosync really soothing to listen to. Dane spotts has some similar stuff which you can find on torrent. But I think these can help relaxation, nothing more, and I think they are a bit too trigger happy at messing with bra...

Re: Focus on the present - A Zen story

I get it but I don't. explain? These Zen stories are potent ways of pointing out how effort to attain enlightenment becomes an obstacle to that goal. If you can see effort arising and how it is maintained that recognition can be the invitation to let effort drop completely, and then the "goal" is r...

Re: The Four Agreements

I love his view on what he calls "domestication" how humans have been systemized by society.

Re: Read Barry Long

After discussing Barry Long a few days ago in the chat room, I went back online to bit torrent and got everything of Barry's that I could and I must say Barry is an amazing teacher. If you look back on this thread I posted that I had listened to "Start Meditating Now" and I revisited this title agai...

Re: Omraam aivanhov

I have read some works of this master and I can say that he knows what he is talking about. He mainly deals with spirituality from a Kabbalistic perspective but isn't aligned with any tradition. You can detect that joyous rebelliousness in him as well. Check him out guys.

Re: Plotinus

Do you think it is beneficial to read this teacher with the newer teachers that we have like Eckhart. I find myself a little lazy before embarking on that journey so I think I need my arm to be twisted a bit. Have you found any insights that haven't been presented elsewhere? Does he talk about any s...

Re: OSHO

Is he really so successful now? I love Osho's total trust. He said "If my teachings are worth anything the whole will find a way to keep them alive" And indeed. I know my life is much richer with the knowledge that people like this man walk the earth.

Re: Spiritual Casulty

Weichen, I am glad someone addresses this issue. I agree that those who do not have major life problems shouldn't spend too much time in spiritual circles. I often quote Jesus when he said "It is not the well who need a physician but the sick." And in my opinion this is where the misunderstanding co...
