I have marveled as well over the language needed to explain the essence of stillness, I struggle and realize how funny it must sound to someone who's ego is in total charge. I can so appreciate imagination and an ability of sorts to relate to abstraction which onesness with all suggests. I really fi...

So true. These emerging ideas are not of the mind and I too have found that if the person isn't ready that there egoic self shuts the door. One friend of mine found Tolle boring indicating a need for more. :) More stimuli and food for thought as Tolle himself puts it. Thanks so much for your insight...

If I can't be clear about my own internal reason, and see it's effect upon my own internal observation, what's the chance of me observing the external tree with any accuracy? Phil why does there need to be a reason? Internal or otherwise? Mindstuff might be getting in your way to just being, withou...

I guess real question is - will I lose something, joy of life or things that I want if I surrender to life? I have lost many things, stress, chronic tension and unease, misery and suffering created by my egoic self, much drama and reaction. The story of me that created all my suffering and heartach...

I finished it and it is now a companion on my bookshelf along side A new earth and Power of now, wonderful, powerful and put in a way that resonants deeply with me. I find it really amazing that these authors can explain stillness, being and consciousness with so few pointers, to me, thats a gift in...

The immensity of oneness with all people places things. That is my main nonverbal essence and that to me is "Truth" and is universal. My egoic illusions of seperateness knocks once in awhile. The witness which for me is slow and profound helps me when my mind wants command. I think the senses are st...

Kiki you summed it up most elegantly when you said: Awareness is the sole "thing" that knows all, for literally nothing can be "known" without it. No matter what is here, there will be the knowing of it by awareness. Does this make sense? Can you see how there could be be "omniscience" now? There is...

Thanks for the clarity Kiki. It never ceases to fill me with wonder how gifted the teachers here are. How those few can explain to the mind what isn't of the mind but of the wholeness of all things. To merge all the duality into just "being"and"oneness". That backward step we all take when we surren...

David, Kiki thanks so much for the illumination you have both answered many questions that I could not articulate but have wanted to know answers to. This thread is the essence of light that helps to realize allowing oneness doesn't require a goal or effort, which has been my main struggle. Sort of ...

So it is the problems with words :) To my own personal understanding is Tolle rejects being called anything like that. In fact he mentioned a relegion formed about himself and the whole duality thing Us vs. Them starts all over again. The very problem enlightenment seeks to solve. And really isn't i...

Or are we going to just blindly believe every word some man tells us because he is in some position of self declared authority? Phil can you show me any where in Tolle's books were he claims this? Just curious about your source or is it opinion? Oh and Summer thanks for your explanation I found it ...
