What does Presence and saying “Yes” to life mean?

Like many of us lately, tuning in on Oprah & ET, has opened a window not seen by many, yours truly included, that tells from the PON & ANE source (ET), which clearly speaks as to where the author and teacher is coming from. As an example, back then when PON was read, there was something, which highl...

Re: Tolle to teach on Oprah.com

If memory serves correctly, ET mentioned a few reasons he was drawn to the west, namely California, is because he had friends to stay with while writing his book. Based on this its not much of stretch to imagine Tolle, back then, not having it as easy as you’d like to believe, but his passion was fu...

Re: A Woman's spiritual enlightenment?

Thank you Erick, that was good of you. Something remembered reading sometime ago in PON but since the book was lent to someone along time ago, I couldn’t reference it at a time of need. As you’ve probably read from past posts, a need to reach out and physically meet others with this vast opportunity...

A Woman's spiritual enlightenment?

Did ET somewhere in PON say the seeds of spiritual enlightenment are closer and easier for women to achieve and why?

Re: ET's Aloneness?

As Sandiegojoereal and Onceler mentioned most all of us have been somewhat affected this way by being ensconced in Tolle’s teachings for such an extended period of time, time as we know it anyway. In other words, that which was fringed with importance egoically has and/or is loosing its luster and t...

ET's Aloneness?

As a long time follower of ET, something somewhat weird lurks in the background and coming to terms with it is something I’d like to share and listen to similar experiences, if any. As a person who is somewhat outgoing, a bit gregarious on the edges, enjoys dancing with a bit of a flair on the dance...

Re: Tolle to teach on Oprah.com

The first hour went pretty smooth but thereafter it start stalling while buffering and after the screen freeze, they would start talking again with variable size pieces of the webcast missing. Downloading the ipod webcast through itunes tomorrow after 12 noon will make it so much better to watch. En...

Re: Surrender - I don't get it

Situations and more at times can cause pain, consternation etc. of the kind which relief or change is needed. As mentioned, surrender is a form of acceptance of a given situation. If I remember correctly, ET said there are three (3) things one can do in a uncomfortable situation: 1. Do all you can t...

Re: Tolle to teach on Oprah.com

A confession mills around telling of things discovered and a need to be shared with long time listeners. Oprah has invited the general public at large to start “New Earth” discussion groups and again, curiosity and a need to find and reach out to actually talk to someone “live” played into desires I...

Re: Tolle to teach on Oprah.com

Curiosity and a sense of “its about time” ol’ET starts getting the kind of kickback which will hopefully prevail in making peace allot more desirable and who knows, maybe it will become the in thing to do. The hits on Oprah’s discussion forum are going through the roof. Perusing through them brings ...
