We are discussing things. This is called a "discussion community." I'm standing far enough away to see that. :) Thanks for that bit of simple clarity Yo. You know guys, a gentle reminder, Tolle himself wrote a whole book on this general subject, entitled The New Earth. If you wish, observe how we a...

Thanks Yo, I'm only serious about a solution to war to the extent of keeping the space inside me clear and peaceful and helping others find that if I can help. And listening to others who know that peace so they may be able to help me. Beyond that, I have little to offer. Ok, cool, I like the clarit...

Hi Yo, please pardon the abbreviation, haven't mastered your screen name yet. Since then, there has been a joy inside. A sense that something in me is no longer threatened by death. Death would be ok. I'm not really looking to die but I'm not longer afraid of it. I also don't feel nearly as threaten...

I enjoy talking with you as well yougarksooo. Anybody who can blow as hard and hot and long as me deserves some kind of award, or um, maybe, medical procedure. :-) Whatever it is, we'll go get it together. Ok, we've reached that inevitable point in any nowbie conversation where we have to stop and s...

The solution to war was never external. That has been the problem. It is internal. We could analyze this a bit perhaps. Never is a big word. Sometimes it is purely a matter of psychology, say, a dictators ego trip, or his people's ego trip. Sometimes it's a struggle over resources needed to survive...

but to argue with what is only drains us. What is the Power Of Now, if not an argument with personal insanity? Why try to fix this personal insanity, why not not just declare it "what is" and let it be? What is The New Earth, if not an argument with the collective human insanity? Why write a book a...

What I hear is taking action out of a different place than where humanity has been taking action out of for thousands of years. Instead of from unconsciousness, from a state of presence. Alertness. Presence. Ok, I'm with you here. We share this interest. What will the action that comes from this di...

Just here, not above or below or left or right. Ok, I'm still listening. Trying to understand how this plays out in day to day life. As an illustrative example, let's say I decide to write a perl script that will spam this board with an unmanageable volume of porn spam, and then spend the day hurli...

Hi Gina, if I knew what you were saying I think I might agree with some of it. At least I get a sense from you that you acknowledge the existence and importance of good and evil, right and wrong, however you might define that. Outside the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll mee...

Let's drop the conversation about future and stick to the things that help us recognize the spirit in each other. Sound good? :) Agreed, agreed. This conversation is all about spirit. That's the whole point. What is the main obstacle to recognizing the spirit within us? An obsessive concern with "m...

Thanks for your comments yougarksooo, they're appreciated. This subject matters to many of us here, and I'm glad to see it still alive. but also speculation that humanity faces utter doom because "it's always been that way." (Phil's half empty glass). Just for the record, I didn't say, and don't bel...

Phil, do you have any advice on how to mend a broken heart. Do you know what this pressure in my heart could possibly be. Well, for starters, have you seen a doctor? Even if the pain is purely psychological, sometimes doctors can help with that too. I wouldn't put all my eggs in this basket, but if...

Perhaps war, and the idea of war, will dissolve when we let go of the idea and concept of peace. I feel these concepts are rooted in ego and therefore will always be there until there is a world awakening. Sigh. There's not going to be a world awakening, where everybody on earth becomes peaceful. Y...

Thanks for the kind words Confused. If you hang around here long you'll see I don't deserve them, but we can both bask in the glow of illusion for a few moments, I guess that'd be OK. :-) Wait, don't run off before I can dump some free advice on you, like everybody else. I've been good, I deserve it...
