Numbing through medication

Hi there, I am re reading The Power of Now and there is a part concerning using alcohol, legal or illegal drugs to hide emotion, etc. That is the part the i have a problem with.

Re: My plans rarely happen, or things never go as planned.

Hi there Beyondthought, I know exactly what you mean. I have the same situation with friends. The friends that i have made in which i have been the instigator i. e. would you like to come for a coffee, etc, the friendship never seems to last. But when i don't and the other person approaches me, the ...

OCD

hi there Cyberchick, I suffer from OCD and let me tell you that some of the thoughts are ridiculous. Please don't worry when people say the Source is telling you to end the relationship. As a christian, i believe 'God' wouldn't do that, unless you were in danger. I used to have terrible trouble with...

Making every thought obedient to Christ

Hi there all, I had a bit of a personal revelation last night. In 2 Corinthians 10:5, it says that we are to make every thought obedient or captive to Christ. I was thinking how this relates to the Power of Now teachings and what this passage may be about. When we have a negative thought, say 'I am ...

I watch quite a lot

hi there all, I watch quite a lot of tv but i'd like to think that i don't watch crap!!! I like what Ananda said that you have to be present to watch TV. I agree otherwise how would you know whether what you are watching is agreeable or not! I enjoy having a programme to look forward to. Maybe that'...

I know exactly what you mean!

Cyberchick, Hello there, I suffer from OCD too! I think people with OCD suffer from treating themselves too harshly. We seem to set the bar very high for ourselves! I get thoughts that my husband is going to die, which i absolutely hate and frighten me. I like you find it hard to just realise that t...

Not understanding something!

Hi there all, Hope everything is well and living in the Now! I get the impression after listening to Tolle on YouTube, that showing sympathy with another 'problems' is somehow unnecessary and daft! As a christian, i believe that (as it is written in the scriptures) that we are to help others carry t...

PON and Christianity

hi there all, I read the PON about a year ago and on and off struggling to live it's truths. But my question is, as a christian i feel 'guilty' for finding the PON works in ways that the bible doesn't. I feel that i am worshipping Tolle and not Christ. I know a lot of Tolles' teachings reflect Chris...

Re: Law of attraction and OCD

Hi there Steph H,
Yes i know exactly what you mean. I thought as much myself. I reason with God when i have a 'desire' i don't really want, that it is not really me who is asking this.
Thanks for your input though.
Godbless
