My first taste of spirituality came from the Course. I have to admit, even after 20 years I can't understand the text part of the book because of the language. I went to catholic school as a kid, and my old interpretations would come back when certain words were used. I know alot of people who have ...

Hello weichen, I was very glad to see this post. I've seen this described as kundalini, and experienced this as energy at the base of the spine, that shoots up very quicky and having an orgasmic sensation to it. I remember this happened spontaniously in me about 5 times over a 6 - 8 week period. I t...

1- Yes, the mind is the birth place of consciousness (little c = ego or false self), however it is not the birth place of Consciousness ( big C = Spirit or True Self). 2- I guess my Short answer to this one would be that Consciousness can free itself from the mind, and in doing that, knows itself to...

Generosity of Spirit

It's a little strange, but today I went back and reread some of the my comments to the posts over the last week, and also to others replys. I could see that in "some" of the back and forth dialouge, how mind had come in trying to assert the position of the individual experience. While I am often min...

Sorry this post comes so late but I read something along time ago I think pertains to this question, but could not remember where. I just found it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. There once was a soul who knew itself to be the light. This was a new soul, and so, anxious for experience. "I am the...

Method is very simple. Just read over the lesson your working on (only a couple pages). Keep the key phrase in mind here and there through the day, and a 15 min. meditation twice a day which uses connected breathing. Very simple, explained in easy to understand language. Even though I had done this ...

Michael Brown's book The Presence Process is excellent. He explains very well how people pick up their belief structures, emotional patterns, etc and then act them out unconciously over and over again. More importantly though, he guides you threw 12 lessons I think it was, each lesson focused on for...

Yes to the last line in your first post. If you just notice your thoughts and feelings you will see that they are probably recurring. Like you have a tape machine inside that keeps playing the same old tape over and over. Are you thinking these thoughts or are they just happening. Just like breathin...

Yes, thats right. And if I continue your space analogy, you can become a telescope and zoom in on any thought or emotion you choose and choose how or if you want to interact with it. A quick example would be several years ago, I worked as the manager of a retail store. The company's main office was ...

Wow. Did'nt think my words would be taken so literally. Of course you don't decide to forget. You do however decide to take human form knowing full well you will forget your Spirit Self. When Spirit or Conciousness takes on human form, it gets mixed up with the physical, mental, and emotional aspect...

Well yes, of course you need me-ness (seperateness, forgetfullness) to realize IS-ness (oneness, wakefullness). You can not know any of these without its opposite. So you hide from your awareness, via a mental filtering device (ego) that which you are, so that you can expierence the joy of Re-member...

Tolle's only objection, is that of identifying as an addict, as far as I know. From my point of view, those that experience a radical shift, as in Tolle's case, often have that objection. From my point of view, most of us go through a slower gradual shift, and in the case of a severe addiction, the ...
