Re: I would like to overcome anxiety and depression

I learned that people do what they do irrespective of me , so I have stopped taking anything personally. I was able to forgive my ex husband, and let go all of the dramas and traumas I carried from the "failed" relationship. This is probably the most freeing part of Eckhart's teachings. Until you s...

Re: I would like to overcome anxiety and depression

I'm way down there, and I willingly go as low as I can. Hit rock bottom, so to speak. I dont care how low, and i dont care how messed up I end up, if i feel like being in that state, so what. it saves time, and it almost guarantees I never ever go down that road again. Welcome to the board, entelec...

Re: The Age of Awakening

We have to remember the primitive times most holy books were written in and make allowances for the level of awareness and understanding at those times. You explain things differently to a child than you do to an adult. Thoughtz Well said, thoughtz. I agree. I fell into Eckhart's teachings one laye...

Re: What can we do to wake up?

What can we do to wake up? Is there really anything that we can do except be watchful? In Power of now Eckhart says we cannot transform ourselves, or anyone else. All we can do is make the space for being, and with acceptance, perhaps we will connect to ourselves and others and all things in a deep...

Re: Dating

Great thread subject. I'm "out there again" in my 40's, and so I'm looking forward to reading this thread for good advice. I do have to say that when you have realized some of Eckhart's ideas, the whole hope/rejection cycle looses it's sting. I know that my openness and lack of defenses confuses som...

Re: How to fully accept yourself?

I suffer from obsessive thinking, worry, and doubt. Do you believe in Santa? Magic? The Tooth Fairy? Unicorns? The Easter Bunny? If not, why not? Could it be that you grew up and grew out of the need for someone to "bring" you happiness? If you can grow out of those beliefs, can you also grow out o...

Re: Meditation

he said that it was impossible to meditate for periods of time Vanwinkle, I've all but memorized Eckhart's books and some of his lectures, and I've never heard anything like that. He recommends meditation without any methods in his Findhorn retreat. He says to listen to silence and whatever backgro...

Re: something would like to discuss

Short answer: He may be right. Long answer: Who knows?! The idea of requiring a teacher is a thought form. So on the level of the mind, he's probably right. But some people can feel their connections to everything underneath their minds, without any help, and I don't see how that could ever be bad. ...

Re: Who Truly Beliieves in Enlightnment? Is it sensationalized?

Dear Asta, Please allow this 40-something to applaud you for thinking about awareness at all before your 20th year. Bravo! How much better the world would be if teenagers stopped thinking about consumption and image and considered what their lives might amount to with some introspection. You're cert...

Re: Who Truly Beliieves in Enlightnment? Is it sensationalized?

Aggreed, Kiki. I'm in much better emotional health than ever and it's not hard: It gets easier and easier. The real razor's edge is trying to force the world to "give" you what you think you want, and living with constant disappointment. After a while, you realize the futility of it all and start lo...

Re: Who Truly Beliieves in Enlightnment? Is it sensationalized?

I'm going to speculate that one who is enlightened no longer seeks labels, including the condition of "enlightened." 8) Personally, I prefer the term awakening. It is not one event, but a process. I've awakened from many futile dreams, one at a time, and I've been grateful for each bubble that has f...

Re: Burn the History Books - Burn em all!

Tech guy's right. We hold these grudges and harbor fear and hatred, foolishly attempting to overcome them with more of the same that creatted them in the first place. We're supposed to be a race that can think and understand, and yet we carry on the past vendettas and then sing patriotic songs about...
