A part of your job seems to be a superivsory role. One alternate way to look at this would be, that she is not doing her job because you are not doing yours. Seems to me she is giving you an opportunity to learn to confront people, so that you can keep your power, without over powering in a degradin...

OK, I have got to jump into this thread right now. I read this earlier and wanted to reply then, but I was a little upset and thought it better to sit with it a little while before responding. I will start by stating I am not nor have I ever been in any part of the medical field. As I read the origi...

So is there anyone who has ideas to what enlightenment is based on the brain? Yes. You do. The first sentence in your second paragraph states: Experience of oneness with the universe has been explained that the activity in the frontal lobes that has the spacial functions is lowered You seem to be l...

LOL :P . Take another look at what you wrote: I'm very much identified with the story right now and can't seem to detach myself. I feel glued to all that's going on in my life experience. An extreme form of reluctance to step back and observe what's happening instead of witnessing. I want to be a pa...

When you have children who break things, flush things down the toilet, hit each other, ignore me and generally wreak havoc all day long
This is one of those good news bad news situations.

The good news is the will grow out of this behavoir.

The bad news is they grow into teenagers. :D

I couldn't agree more with kiki's and JD's post. Great. As I read your post Hiren Shah, it does appear to me that you might have taken the meaning of ET, Osho, and others you have quoted here, writings out of context and slightly misinterpretting them. It is very apparent to me, from your writings i...

After writing my first reply, something was bothering me inside about this post, so I came back for a second look. At first I thought you were posing a question as to how one finds their life purpose, but after a second look, that was not directly being asked. I then visited your website and saw tha...

From someone like Eckhart, since he has mentioned awakening your life's purpose, one would expect more fervent proactive attempts at determining life purpose instead of it being an issue of trial and error. Even all the ancient religions talk about it- Hinduism, Islam, Ancient China, Ancient Greece...

OK, I'll try to be a little more clear. What I am trying to say is, that what you refer to as dual, seems to be only physical things. However, when someone you might call enlightened or a spiritual teacher uses the term, they no longer are coming from the egoic state of conciousness were you see you...

No challenges, no sex, no eating, no exchange of matter or ideas of any kind? Some people seem to have a strange idea of what a non-dual world is or would be. All of those things you mention are still there when you are in the non-dual state. It is not the world that is non-dual, it is your state o...
