Another idea, perhaps already investigated. If the spammers are mostly coming from one IP address, that IP can be blocked, and the spammers will no longer be able to reach the forum. But before we do that, I do wish someone would tell us whether Tolle has ever had sex with Britney Spears. Isn't this...

That's where we're at now, with a translucent revolution taking off and when enough of us have "transformed" then the outer manifestation will spontenously change. How? I have no idea, and neither does Eckhart, he has said as much. Every so often I like to yell the word Rubbish! -- just to stay in ...

I'll be 56 next month. Oh crap, you're ahead of me, I'm gonna have to peddle harder to catch up! No wait, I'll just change my tune. Darn Din, too bad you're not young like me. Young is better you know. :-) I don't know a damn thing. Ha, Din my friend, I _so_ don't believe you when you say stuff lik...

I guess what I was really wondering about is how your pain body can be so benign. Luck. Luck in love, luck in money, luck in where and when I was born, and who I was born to. Luck to be 55, instead of 25! :-) That's the impression I was getting, mine was kicking my ass Well, how old are you? Mine w...

Hey Din, I see someone who is more interested in a good discussion than in learning something. (or letting go of something) Letting go of the need to improve my friend. I enjoy a good discussion, it's true. That's my now what is. Why fix it? I do see a need to manage. Sometimes my enjoyment of a goo...

Hey there Din Dancer Amadeus, The answer to global warming does not lie on the level of form, it lies within you. The outer world, including the problem of global warming is a manifestation of our inner state. I believe you are right, but it doesn't do us a lot of good. I really do agree that the ro...

The waste is a problem, but it pales in comparison to what we are facing now. I believe a solution to locking up the waste is not far off. Will welcome any details you can share. I like the idea, but can't figure out where to put stuff that will be dangerous for 10,000 years. It seems we need some ...

Even though it won’t last forever, it is worth noting that there is still a great deal of fossil fuels in the US, not just oil, but there are huge coal reserves and oil shale. Ok, good point. We could make electricity from all the coal, and then drive electric cars, etc. And the technology presentl...

Thanks for the conversation Kiki, I always enjoy the dialogue. Then use them - the simpler the better . Logically, the very simplist techniqe is none whatsoever. Logically, yes. Practically, no. Let's address a room full of people off the street who are suffering from thought overload, and tell them...

Hey WW, Ha, we've been at war with Texas since 2000, if you catch my drift. :-) Yes, agreed, liberation from foreign sources first. But there just isn't enough fossil fuel within our own borders to last forever, so the issue remains. Even if we found tons of new fossil fuels in Alaska or the Gulf, i...

Can we make an end run around this debate by agreeing that if we don't liberate ourselves from an intense dependance on fossil fuels, we will likely blow everything up before any possible warming kills us off? Warming aside, aren't there other good reasons why we should be rather immediately begin m...

The pointers seem to be necessary only until we see and help each other see that to which they point. Ok, but what form should the pointers take, if our goal is to communicate beyond the boundaries of a particular culture? For starters, we probably can't call these discussions pointers, or portals,...

Hey Kiki, Me too - I meditated in order to become "enlightened" - it didn't work. ET's influence here was profound and I dropped a 27 year practice. That was when everything "clicked" and I could understand what Krishnamurti, Osho, and others were writing about because the direct experience of what ...

Thanks Yo, Give the mind anything to get stuck on (like the use of a form that is unfamiliar or does not point clearly to the thing to which the speaker is trying to point) and then egoic disagreement is on like a bloody bullfight. Yes, egoic disagreement is surely part of it. Doesn't this generally...

Thanks for your eloquent words guys, well said. Feel free to ignore this of course, but here is my thought obsession. If you wish, please consider our lineage. Ancient Indian masters => Krishnamurti => Tolle Ok, that's not precise of course. But it will perhaps suffice to illustrate a point. Few of ...
