Re: Tolle Criticism

Wow, thanks all for your inspiring thoughts. I read most of the 'criticisms' and wished I hadn't (!) your posts helped to dispel the disturbing negative stuff.

Re: Eckhart and Jesus quotes?

I found this quote from ET from PoN p.177 chapter "The Meaning of Surrender" "Blessed are the gentle, for they shall have the earth for their possession" - I think in the Bible it says "Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth" - interesting .

Re: Call to Action

Interesting idea! I suppose when we are present, we indirectly influence others because they will be calmed, or inspired or maybe just recognise unconsciously the peace we radiate when we are present and not resisting what is. The less negative energy we radiate out into the world, the better. We ar...

Re: Tolle Criticism

Anyone else seen this? I found it all rather depressing (or rather my ego did!) interesting though the user who was defending ET..... I suppose I can see why they would think that ET is into making money as he is so successful and the scenario of $75 x 1200 people which is quite a lot I guess but i ...

Hi Erict

Just wondering is it possible to have 'stickies' on this board i.e. to pin the really useful topics at the top of the categories?

Re Domokato
Also, not getting so egoically involved in the game/TV while you're playing/watching helps too.

Re: Do you ever feel like you're rude by being spiritual?

Hi all this is my first post to this forum! Interesting discussion...... I would have thought you need to let other people know what is happening, for example if you are listening to someone and don't feel like saying anything, you have to let them know something even if it is "I see, I understand" ...
