Re: an OBE

Hi, Andy: I don't pursue OBE. It can happen spontaneously just by relaxing your body. When I was deep in the now with Eckhart's path, I had OBEs that were very profound, without me even doing anything. There are techniques out there for people who would like to go OBE. It isn't easy to do. I agree i...

Re: an OBE

These were some interesting discussion that I have missed in the past few days!! I have thought about the distinction between Eckhart Tolle's path and the OBE path. I have experienced both. My take is that they have similarities and differences. There is a split point where the two path separates. T...

Re: What is weeping

Today during yoga, I noticed that the sensation to weep came over me either when I became totally relaxed, to the extent where I didn't know I can be that relaxed, or when I turn to letting go of the tension in my body when in a difficutl posture and become forgiving and loving to my body and myself...

romantic love toward self--peak experience or original state

I was busy organizing a resource fair and now it just finished. So I start to unwind a bit during the long weekend. Usually after unwinding bit, the familiar calm and peace come back, the original state deep down starts to surface. It feels like romantic love. Everything feels great and beautiful, o...

Re: an OBE

Thank you Kiki. I have Robert Monroe's second book, but the writing is not a easy read though. However, I can feel how he had to use a lot of "one word" to represent a concept, because some experiences are very hard to put to words. I enjoy William Buhlman's book Adventures beyond the body. In fact,...

an OBE

12/25/09 I was woken up by the sound of my TV and light in the living room coming on. I instantly got worried. What is it? I saw my cat at the foot of my bed becoming alert too. We both got up. While leaving my bed, I noticed that my movement was difficult, feeling like moving in the water. At the t...

What is weeping

The host of Travel Channel "Bizarre food" Andrew Zimmer was in a ritual in a tribe in South Africa. He was just looking around and joined in the circle when the dance and drumming got more intense. People rolled around and dance around in trance. He was amazed by what he was seeing. All of a sudden,...

Re: Inner body or mindfulness?

From my experience, I would say the reason why "now" is so hard to focus for people is because we just have too many stuff layered on us--emotions, body tension, thoughts, memories. I know that in theory we are supposed to be able to "just be", "just be aware of all things around you." Without a pro...

Busy people, do we know how tired our body really are?

Of course if we are totally aware and present 24/7, we won't feel stressed at all because we would never overwork ourselves, and we also have a endless flow of inner energy to make us energetic all day long. But once in a while when life really requires too much, this is what we find. 1. Unwinding S...

On spiritual journey where we are confronted with the ultimate trial of survival, this really takes every bit of us to go forward. We are faced with the ...

Re: Anger

Being a new boss at my workplace, I am also faced with daily occasions that could cause intense emotions in me. So far, I think I am doing fine. With more and more in touch with my real self, things become easier. Of course, there are things that still get to me too. It's okay to feel angry. There a...

Re: The discovery of self love and God's love in the core

Oddly, perhaps, we're doing exactly what we want to do. If we are thinking, it is because we want to think. If we are in that stillness, it is because at that moment we want to be in that stillness. If we start thinking again, it is because we want to start thinking again. I know it's customary to ...
