Re: Why Enlightenment is Hard

Andy Wrote: And so it’s a little scary. To add confusion, is the fact that the subtracting is not something we do actively. We don’t say “OK…now I’m going to subtract all my anger at my mom.” Or “I’m done with all this frantic grind on the treadmill.” Rather those fixations drop away, or become les...

Re: Difficulties accepting PON

Kiki, Hermitloon, Sighclone et-al Hermitloon, I read your blog and Kiki’s great piece. I was taken back, in a way, as if like Kiki, I and so many others had traveled every highway and byway, every back road and alley in every city on this planet and landed up in our back yards in a small town called...

Sense of Self..

James, et-al James, mention of concentration camps (in Michael Jackson’s thread) is poignant and very meaningful to a movie/story recently seen called The Reader. So as not to detract from homage to Michael, I took the liberty to start another thread, due in part to images the mind can create. I apo...

Re: Difficulties accepting PON

Thinking about PON and ANE isn’t often anymore, in fact years of philosophizing, intellectualizing and more have taken a prolonged welcomed sabbatical. The gurus, teachers, sophists, and mental giants who I aspired to as decorators of the house I dwelled in are NOW, there but have sort of receded in...

Re: Michael Jackson

I keep on dancing and dancing.......and dancing, until there is only......the dance....... Kiki, Heavy duty…so touching…didn’t know he was there…WOW! I’m stunned, he’s prolific in ways unknown to me and I’m sure others. Why-Why did he leave us? The gentle giant moved on to another place, another st...

Re: Michael Jackson

Being touched and sentimentalizing on one you’ve watched grow from a child to his end through the media’s eyes brings together human feelings that are what they are and as we know and feel them. ET’s given sense of awareness in many ways can deepen personal human conscious levels a shade differently...

Michael Jackson

Personally, I’m saddened and feel a deep sense of remorse for this icon of talent who not only seemingly fell from grace but also into the arms of those who also made him rich and famous. He died young, younger than most expected and the pressures, which seemingly befell him, lead too much speculati...

Re: Learning to enjoy life

Not quite certain who it was who said something like, “When you go out to dance, pretend and have fun as if no-one was watching.” Not sure if I quoted this correctly and was it Tolle or someone else who said this? :-)

Re: Learning to enjoy life

Intel, what I hear and feel from some of what you say appears to be a bit and sometimes allot of tightness. Tightness, in as much, that I sense allot of credence to thought is being given more than I, for one, care to give it any longer. Why, because thought loves to dwell, bore holes and indiscrimi...

Re: New Tolle Silent Meeting group: We've had our first meeting

Peaceman, I hear you and some of what you say resonates. So does a need or desire for some to have a group to feel unity in the power it can generate within, for some. This too resonates. Again, it’s all personal preference and because of this I personally veer away from should and should not’s. As ...

Re: New Tolle Silent Meeting group: We've had our first meeting

I'd like to ask you ways in which I could help improve our group. I don't want to get lost in the comradery. We originally met to discuss ANE and decided to continue on with TPON. Mary-Frances, The above hit a symbiotic note in which the meetings I’ve attended, likewise, produce an aura of camarade...

Re: New Tolle Silent Meeting group: We've had our first meeting

Andy and James, I took your advice and downloaded Gateway to Now. I have Tolle’s PON & ANI cd’s but found Gateway to NOW spot on for initializing a Silent meeting group. It was kind of refreshing listening to ET bringing to the fore the innocents of a year and a half old child’s eyes staring at you ...
