Gentle Reminder - Buddha quote and presence

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and eld...

Re: Relationship changes once you stop supporting stories

That is exactly my experience suzanne. Not only intimate relationships but almost all other relationships, friends, coworkers, parents anyone else with whom you shared stories with earlier. You in fact become boring and dull because you don't share gossips, interesting stories about someone else. Wh...

Re: Wheres Kiki?

I take this opportunity to wish Kiki all the best for faster recovery. You are in our prayers. We all know how normal folks deal with intense pain and surgery. Total nonacceptance, disbelief, crying, suffering and finally acceptance. It may be helpful for us to know how someone like Kiki uses spirit...

Re: Kiki

I am so utterly grateful for kiki. He took time and answered a number of my questions when I was confused and panicked on the journey. We can feel his kindness through the words.

Are there any guideposts, milestones on spiritual journey?

I read a number of experiences mentioned by folks. Personally, I don't have any extraordinary experience so far that I can point to. I only see a certain behavioral changes in me. For example, I feel much more peaceful and experience a general state of well being. I don't get bothered with issues an...

Is vegetarian food better for spiritual growth?

This is one of the most confusing issue for me. Everyone has all sorts of opinions on this issue. I would like to put this question to the group. I would like to solicitate your own experiences not opinions. Has vegetarian food or vegan food been better for the state of presence in your experience? ...

When first I came to be aware of the power of now, I would focus hard on the present moment. It gave me headaches. It took a little experience before I realized I was creating a rigidity in the body by locking down my mind so as not to be constantly thinking. Webwanderer, I want to acknowledge that ...

Thanks kiki for your answer. I understand it conceptually. But don't you need an effort even to observe; not necessarily active seeking? Ability to stand aside from the mental flow without falling in again and again, getting back to now after losing in some thought again and again; as ninjin referre...

Are GURUs lying? Is realization that easy?

So far, from what ever I have read or understood, most of the GURUs are saying the same thing, Just open your eyes There is nothing to do Nowhere to go Nothing to achieve While they themselves have spent many years, decades, practically whole life pursuing the goal, practicing, making herculiean eff...

EvB,
I appreciate your introduction to Leonard Jacobson. I had never heard of him before. I listened to audio clips and they so much resonate with me. Both ET and Leonard are trying to do the same thing...wake us up.

Again EvB, I truely thank you.

I think....... We are completely missing the point here. As I understand ET never mentioned rejecting forms. In fact if I am correct, he always pointed out to honor forms for whatever they are. That includes this body, career, home, family, friends whatever there are. Only point that ET is making is...
