Re: Awakening and Children

I have a almost 2 year old grandson staying with me and I could just sit and watch him all day (well when he is not cranky:) I can "see" how we are conditioning him. He learned the word dog for dog but called all animals dog..now he is learning labels of each animal. He plays with little cars and tr...

Re: WhySo Expensive?

I like what BK says about money...something about money coming and going. My husband lost a $20 bill the other day. Someone probably picked it up and spent it. If Tolle spends money on cars, expensive dinners, houses etc. isn't he still spreading the wealth so to speak and contributing to society? T...

Re: WhySo Expensive?

I re-read my post and it sounded harsh...did not mean it that way..I think I was talking to myself...lol. But about minding my own business, it doesn't mean I won't help someone in distress or not take a stand against injustice, it just means (I hope-cause I really am a baby with all this) that I wi...

Re: WhySo Expensive?

As someone "trying" to live in the now I see Tolle and others like him this way: First of I have been practicing MMOB (mind my own business) so what money he makes, what he does with it is non of my biz Do we REALLY know how much he actually makes, how much he has in his bank account, WHAT he does w...

Re: A Message From Shore to Ship

This does not necessarily work all the time. I do not agree with terrorists, neither can I learn much from them. I may be way off here but when I read this line my first "thought" was..Is that true? (Byron Katie work) Are you separating yourself from terrorists? They are bad, they are there, they a...

Re: My mind has no where to place her

Thank you mistral and Marcel! Everything you wrote is at the core of my religious "beliefs". It is funny cause the more I "learn" from this board, Tolle and other spiritual teachers, the more sense the scriptures make. Like I learned that our life force goes back to god, so if we are all one and God...

My mind has no where to place her

I know this is all thoughts and mind, but maybe it will help me drop it all to talk about it?? When one particular person pops in my head I get overwhelmed with sadness, unease and anxiety. I try to think of it as a "visit" like BK says. (this person died a few years ago) I want to pinpoint the thou...

Re: Is Eckhart more of a hindrance than a help?

Just a comment...when I read your post an image of the world falling to pieces around me came up and to find or be in the stillness/awareness within would mean all this chaos going on "outside" can't touch stillness. I am basically "here" at peace while the world goes on or not! A very liberating, p...

Re: Brief intro and picking brains

Hi T.N., You "seem" to be ahead of me on this path but I just wanted to relate something I heard recently...Jac O'Keefe speaks like others that there is no or nothing to follow but mentioned if you do follow or feel the need to learn or study a certain way-than do it. I like what she called it...spi...

Re: Jac O'Keeffe

Thanx for this link:) I have watched her twice and get so much out of it. It seems to have opened a little (very little) clearing for me...of course my mind now has more questions...lol. Jac is so wonderful and animated, I can sense her energy and "understand" most of what she is saying.

Re: Eternity **Edited**

I have read the Mellen near death site and want to read Nanci Danison too...so I haven't much "thinking" on eternity except religion. But I was "thinking" the other day and memory wise I remember bits and pieces of my life but can not find a beginning, of course we know the birth process but I am ta...

Re: marriage

non-acceptance of the other is also non-acceptance of oneself. anne Like this quote. Question: verbal abuse could be defined different by many. Society would have you believe that being called a vulgar name would be abuse and get out cause it will only get worse (and maybe that is true or not) so i...

Re: What does presence feel like?

Thanx you all! I will check out TM and Gary Weber. WW your post made much sense as curiosity has been the word or thought when I am looking/touching etc at things. Like looking at nature and trying not to label has been a curios attempt for me:)

Re: What does presence feel like?

I get all this and may have had some moments with space. But when I (try/want to) taste or touch with out thought, it doesn't really work. I am going to put my hand on the table and thoughts immediately come up..image, thought seeking the feeling etc. Do I just keep trying and eventually the mind/th...
