Nice post Yo, I agree that there are a lot of words on here. But if using words for each other helps us to guide each other to peace and being (or God, for those who prefer that word), great!!!! I'm on this kick this week, sorry, please ignore me and I'll just type away merrily to myself if that wor...

Maybe we are on page 4 because you are such a fun person to talk with. I'm sure that must be it! :-) Or it could be that I find myself a fun person to talk with, he says with an embarrassed grimace. :oops: Who is saying that it is a problem to try and help others? We are supposed to work on ourselv...

Is it possible that some form of prayer to Being is in order, I have no idea really, but my sense is that Whoever tends to help those who are already helping themselves. My personal inclination is that Whoever is not a fellow easily bluffed or BSed. I believe He/She smiles down patiently as we tell...

Thanks for the dialogue Summer, it's always fun to talk with you. but I would say that Tolle really helped me see how much I had identified with being a "spiritual seeker" In one sense, I would say that no-one can truly help another in this shift. Well, it sounds like Tolle helped you in some way or...

Re: Reality?

Hi IB, There is such a lot of verbiage here! It's seems childish to keep talking about enlightenment ad nauseum. Ha, good one, you catch on quick. Yes, it can be childish, but for we typoholic pontificators, it's also fun. And my personal gripe is, why do these men and women (spiritual teachers) hav...

Hey again. I of course have no idea what you should do.

I only mean to remind you, you can choose do anything you want.

I wonder if Tolle is a Jim Carey fan?

Jim Carey makes more people smile than Tolle, if anyone is counting. :-)

Does this really matter? Perhaps not to you Din, that's cool. You've steadfastedly declined to help us understand why teaching, words, thoughts, concepts matter so much to you and Tolle. Lots of books by Tolle, lots of posts by Din. We're left wondering why. I've asked enough times, and feel I'd ju...

Hi Summer, I think that it is more a case that this board is limited to discussions about Tolle and The Power of Now. Ok, you're right Summer. It is a Tolle board, agreed. I'm just asking, is it Tolle and PON that is important, or the experience of silence? Wouldn't Tolle himself answer, the experie...

Re: Master Mentality

Does anyone think that there is another world? Hmm. Dunno. My instinct says it's all one reality, but there are parts of it we human beings don't have the equipment to see. As example, our eyes can't see gamma rays, but they are there nonetheless. We can't smell all the things sharks can smell, but...

Hi aanwezigheid, Hmm. Well, you can be with her, and not with her, both, if that helps. Sometimes it might help to move a relationship to a different format. Sometimes people who meet online are anxious to get together in person to enhance the relationship. It could work the other way too. If gettin...

The teachings are not a philosophy. They are pointers pointing beyond themselves. Every word ever uttered or written is a pointer to something beyond itself Din. A true pointer would be something one easily discards. That's not what's happening here. Instead, a big structure of "pointers" is being ...

Something we can agree on We agree on the value of silence. Neither of us would be here daily for a year if we didn't. And we agree on the value of Tolle's teachings. I've always said he is a gifted and very articulate person, a great teacher. I accept the reports of those who report they have bene...

Giving A Dog A Pill

Have you ever tried to give a pill to a dog? They don't necessarily like having their mouth propped open, and a pill shoved down their throat. They may even bite the hand that tries this. But.... If you hide the pill in a big pile of yummy dog food, they will gobble it all down with a big smile on t...

Re: guardian spirits...

The spirits that you and Claudia have accessed are not God. Gina, Gina, Gina, Gina, no, no, no, no. :-) It IS God. Just ask him yourself, he'll tell you! It's on the Internet, it must be true! :-) Seriously, I find the whole experiment fascinating. Give the programmers of this gizmo another 20 year...
