Re: Film Idea Based on Eckhart's Awakening

Hand said: "How about something like a 'normal' family living a 'normal' life and they befriend a wise man, he inspires them and when they are living their lives and experiencing situations he inspires them? With the family you could have children who are bullied at school or whatever and how they d...

Re: Film Idea Based on Eckhart's Awakening

Hand wrote "I think it is a great idea and a film that I would enjoy watching but perhaps a documentary about people living in the present would be interesting too and very inspiring." I watched something pretty close to that today - called The Convent - it is a UK production and its about 4 outside...

Next thing the roller door to the lane way went up and two young men were there, they wanted to know if I had anything for sale, furniture etc I said no...

Re: Frequency Holder

I am reading New Earth and I have reached page 115, also reading Adyashanti’s True Meditation and A Course in Miracles at the same time. Previously I read Power of Now and have listened to the Oprah series. Also in this 4 month period I have read Katie Byron’s A Thousand Names for Joy. They are all ...

Re: I am so scared because of my daughter's illness

Hi Moonsong - Glad to hear your daughter is feeling better now. I can relate to your pain - when a loved one is ill there is much suffering. Recently I read A Thousand Names for Joy by Byron Katie and one of the chapters deals with illness - in fact a woman's imagined illness of her daughter. Katie ...

More Silence

While in London recently I went to the National Gallery and came across a self portrait by Salvator Rosa. In the painting the artist was leaning agaist a stone pillar that had inscribed on it on Latin: Aut Tace, Aut Loquere Meliora Silentio Translated Be Silent unless what you have to say is better ...

Re: I can't help you.

It seems Eckhart has. But he says he can only help those that are ready. The ones who are not ready to be awakened cannot be helped yet. They will resist help. The most help we can give is to "lead by example", so to speak. Eckhart calls it spreading the light of consciousness - being present in the...

Re: Is this normal ?

That is good that all of this is part of the experience of coming to awakening - I had a strong feeling that this might be so. It interesting that even during meditation or doing yoga in the past I had never experience anything quite like this. The lightness in my body - which is not a floating feel...

Is this normal ?

This has happened to many on a number of ocassions when I have been able to stay in the Now for long periods of time. Today I was able to do just that and pretty much stick to it very well - each time I got lost in my mind I came back and because I didnt have much else to do I was able to really put...

Re: You are not your mind, here's a proof

Hi Dagobert Yes you are right on this - after I did that post I did feel that the chatter was easing and that I am having longer periods of calm and many insights. Also when I find myself lost in thought - which I really didnt think much of before - I pull myself back to the now. I have only been do...
