Everything is basically only variations on the same basic element whatever that is, pure energy probably. when all people are enlightened the human race will die out Tolle says and alludes to this and even states it much the same way you did time and time again in his writings. He supports science ...

How could any conscious human write a story about killing an innocent animal and call it poetry! :cry: I don't care what the message is, I was too horrified to continue.

Yes I agree with you Dongle. I was listening to A New Earth once again today, and what you just said is in the first few chapters of the book. I was going to type it out, but you said it far better than I. I think both gentlemen would do well to read or listen to A New Earth. It makes me realize mor...

ego

They see the joy and life I bring to the classroom, not because it is my calling, but because I bring it to my job from the inside Thank you deep82 for your fresh perspective and for repeating what I had stated in an earlier thread. You hit the nail on the head about the ego thing. Wanting somethin...

Question left unanswered

Just be happy you are not a female in your situation Hiren Shah and suraj. Not all people in this country have the opportunities you are talking about. Next time the young Mexican immigrants come to mow the yards for the subdivision, I'll go out and ask him what career opportunities they have explor...

Thanks

For JD But I'm not sure I would have made it if I'd just read The Power Of Now. What I did was put several of ET's audiobooks on my MP3 player so that I could listen to them every day whenever I had a few spare minutes. This practise was absolutely essential for me because I quickly discovered that ...

mental and visceral

Mental and visceral Pain is a thought. You are not your thoughts The last time I felt the pain of loss, I felt it in my physical body as an intense acute pain; thorax, throat, stomach, intestines... The thoughts may have caused that intense acute pain, but I see no way to disassociate yourself from ...

Bravo webwanderer, well said. I need so much to let go of the "human" aspects of spirituality that have dominated my thinking for so long. :?

Wait a minute, isn't too much thinking the problem to begin with? Drat the luck!! I fell into that trap didn't I. :shock:

Thanks

It leaves a massive hole in your life and that hole is - or can become - a portal into presence through a profound shift in consciousness brought about by acceptance of the loss. If you can truly surrender to this loss you'll find a deep abiding peace. Yes JD, once again you reached the spot in me ...

Nice touch of humor

I thought the quote you provided was funny as well, but I was too lazy to address it. I do not see dignity shown to many professions, nor to the individual. It would depend on the level of consciousness of the professor as to whether he would sit down with the janitor and give him the respect due to...

Please elaborate Hiren Shah

The Americans are rich. We have to work whether we like it or not" Hiren Shah, would you please elaborate a little more to the above quote. I was a little taken aback by that comment, but not in a negative way. I know so many people from other countries see America in this way. As for me, if I did ...

yes

Dear Fasty, It does make sense. I think the entire reason I am asking this question is that I may, very soon in the future, need to have this so called grace available to me, and there is a fear that it is an illusion. I think time is grace. I don't understand why we call something grace when we fee...

A beginning

Thanks Annie for the definitions. Do you think good will is the one that fits with Eckhart's teaching? It is still such a mystery to me this thing called grace.

Ego and looking

I am, be completely accepting of what is, and see what flows from that. Doing that, I tend not to even think about career, be insecure about money, etc. I find I have exactly what I need at this moment I appreciate your saying this yougarksooo in a more concise way than I did. What I have always tho...
