Wow be-lank, what a post. You said it so well, and there are so many paths we could take from your beginning. Struggling desperately to limit a reply to one topic... And we heal the world through watching thoughts OK. Can we explore the mechanics of how this actually works? Healing my own mind is my...

Hi Claudia, Ok. Let's say for example we see Saddam killing a million people, and we're awake and observant, and not impaired by hate or anger. We are simply observing a fact. Saddam is so far from awakedness that our peacefulness has no effect on him, except perhaps to inspire him to even more kill...

I have a comment about your frowny face after you mentioned, “mind stuff”. I noticed a tendency in this site for people to feel that mind-stuff, thought- is bad. There is a resistance here to mind stuff. But that resistance Is mind stuff. The mind is fine, thought is fine, even getting lost in it i...

In truth, if we really walk our walk and talk our talk...what's so bad about death? This is a _really_ great topic Claudia, it really deserves a thread all to itself, imho. If you start it, I'll be there. On anger and violence. Does this help us at all? Might we agree that becoming more concious, o...

Heidi, thanks for your post, and more importantly, thank you for the service both you and your daughter are offering us all. We need you both. You said a mouthful, Phil. Welcome to my predicament.... :cry: This question in particular, how gentle people should relate to predators, has always been a b...

So I guess I have a two fold thing to do. First let it be ok to get angry in the first place and second to just keep working on bringing my attention into my body when I do get angry. Claudia, thank you for mentioning the "bring attention in to your body" angle. I had somehow forgotten this aspect ...

Here's something I've had to try to learn how to do. I'm still on schedule, only 245 more years, and I'll have it! When some "offense" occurs, as soon as possible I hope I would try to see whether this is something I am going to act on. That is, am I going to contact the other party and raise the su...

What surprised me the most about squirrels is that they play. Yes! We get our squirrels before they've opened their eyes, so they have never seen a branch or pine cone until we give it to them. It's a wonder to behold the first time you toss a branch in to the cage. They literally do back flips of ...

Uh OK, please stand by Houston, switching command control module over to you now...

Whoops, no wait, that's the delete key!

No worries though, I think we have discovered the secret remedy for anger.

Just Got The New Earth...

Have only read the first chapter (trying to limit myself to one chapter a day), and it's great so far. This guy has a gifted tongue, doesn't he? A few sentences stuck out for me on first read: -------- "This book is about you. It will change your state of conciousness or it will be meaningless." "Yo...

Hahaha Phil you made me snort. :P Isn't the Net amazing? You plunk your fingers down on some plastic keys. Electrons go flying at the speed of light up to orbiting satelittes, through undersea cables, around the power grid of 6 different countries, and some innocent person, who you've never met, in...

I could go on and on about their Isness! :) Please do! :-) Yes, we really enjoy herons too. They're wonderful. Sandhill Cranes are a minor big deal in this part of the world, in the winter. My wife Kathy led us in to a few special experiences with them: http://nature-for-you.com/sandhill-cranes/san...
