Re: Wheres Kiki?

I noted how previous flowerings flowed from physical challenges as well. It's as if we need these things in some way as a way of expanding beyond what we take ourselves to be, and not to dread them or resist them when they do happen - they are golden opportunities for growth if only we can let them...

Re: ego

The question is that knowing this, why is it still so very scary to loose the ego. I see how it is causing so much suffering, but why is it so scary to loose it? Why do we like to cling onto it? Well, as ET says , who would we be if we dropped our victim identity. What will remain , if we stopped b...

Kim, We are not attached to the money per se, but to the various experiences which it brings as you have rightly mentioned. Now, to analyse the various experiences : 1. Physical thrills : ET talks about it in TPON , saying that we seek them only to stay in the NOW , but we can as well stay in the NO...

Just found this link : http://commonground.ca/iss/0709194/cg194_tolle.shtml ET says something curious here : There’s some evidence that the ego started about 6,000 years ago, but nobody can say for sure.

This is all one magnificent play being acted out by the one consciousness. Consciousness gets to play every role in every situation, yet appear as the "many" as well as all of the props. Beneath the role of every character shines the one consciousness. As long as attention of the characters rest on...
