Capitalism and Spirituality

Hello all, I've noticed on a few posts political commentaries particularly after Obama's inauguration. Even though I am a strong proponent of republican policies, for the first time I have placed a degree faith onto the Obama administration. He seems to be very compassionate, intelligent, and most i...

Re: The law of attraction

gd, it's always good to be reminded of gratitude as one of the essential portals, so to speak. I'm anxiously waiting (...er, uhm, but focusing on NOW) for feedback on contrasting this with Dyer's comments I posted. Eckhart also mentions that a vision or goal should already by inside you when you are...

Re: The law of attraction

Coincidentally, I just happened to stumble upon a quote from Wayne Dyer that also brings things into perspective that I thought I should share: Since the universe works via the law of attraction, when you say gimme, gimme, gimme it responds in like fashion. But when you say how may I share? the univ...

Re: The law of attraction

Thanks Heidi... why didn't I think of doing a search first? I guess it's been a few months now, so perhaps for those who may have missed it, http://eckhart-tolle-forum.inner-growth.info/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4493&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=law+of+attraction When I was reading this post I noticed testimonial...

The law of attraction

I'm sure a similar post has been available before my time, so forgive me if this is a recycling of a former discussion point. Much as been said about the "law of attraction" which has catapulted after the popularity of The Secret. My thoughts are is this philosophy is in harmony with Eckhart's teach...

Re: The rich and heaven

There is a fascinating book I recently read on this. There are very few choices when it comes to both richness and spirituality. Although it was written quite a while ago, Jacob Needleman's book "Money and the meaning of life" taps into the question of how religion, spirituality and money are intert...

Re: More consciousness leading to better decisions

Onc and Andy, You are correct in mentioning that a passive lawyer to some degree is of some importance to me. It is for this reason I hinted that I wasn't completely free of ego. I was just opening up myself for positive energy to unfold as I clear my inner space. There is talk about having it take ...

Re: More consciousness leading to better decisions

Peleke, Thanks for reminding me on something about Eckhart's personal journey on how it took many years for his pristine "inner space" to be reflected in the outer space. Half jokingly I'll add its much easier to wait for the outer space transformation once enlightenment happens. :mrgreen: (I acknow...

Re: More consciousness leading to better decisions

Andy, fortunately, having discovered more presence in my life, the ego has shrunk to a much smaller level. Hence I don't really see myself as a "victim" in this legal mess as much as I see it just as a challenging situation. Hence I have to a great extent gone beyond feeling sorry for the "little me...

Re: More consciousness leading to better decisions

Thanks so much Andy, Your assertive comments and genuine care are very much appreciated. And fortunately, there are no children involved. In my case, its not a simple matter of eating cold soup or defending ones self when that is what is required. I can relate to how passiveness and acceptance are n...

Re: More consciousness leading to better decisions

Very helpful responses and very much appreciated! :wink: Mememine, you mention that good decision making rests in good common sense. However, sometimes, as in my case, common sense doesn't apply in a complex situation. There are many variables to consider, and any action could result in a further sp...

More consciousness leading to better decisions

Hello everyone, For those who have reached a state of practising less "thinking" and more consciousness, I am curious about your experiences. Have you actually felt a strong guided or inner body sensation that prompts you now and again to take action? My understanding is that as thinking subsides an...

Re: Basic needs versus ego

Hi Glycine Our interpretation is slightly different. It sounds like you are suggesting that material things or form other than basic needs is irrelevant. My interpretation from ET is that form is 'secondary' which suggests another philosophy. One that appreciates additional wealth, but yet still be ...

Re: I need you to tell me you like me

I just thought Id mention i really did enjoy listening to these invaluable responses. It was incredibly calming just reading the pointers and it seems to never lose its impact.

Citronella, I hope you find that place within. I have gone through life challenges as well.

Re: Basic needs versus ego

My interpretation behind when enough is enough would be subject to each person's interpretation. The rule of thumb asking self is "I'm I really attached to this?". If the answer is yes, then I investigate further as to what is the nature of the attachment. By using this philosophy instead of a "mini...
