Re: Sharing Tolle and his Message with Teens

I am in my early 20th and for me it was the book ANE that struck me when I read it a few years ago. I dont think any audio tapes of ET or webcasts or interviews or anything else would have arisen my interest in that stuff because I wouldnt have understood it without all the invalueable explanations ...

Re: Learning to enjoy life

Hi Intel I guess its of no use to try to figure out what it would look like to have fun or what one must do to enjoy life. The result would just be another role, the role of the happy person, who is enjoying life. But thats not true enjoyment because its attached to a behaviour pattern, which needs ...

Re: I need you to tell me you like me

I like that technique. That should really help to take the position of a observer rather than be identified with emotions. In a book I came another thing that was really interesting and is based on the same idea. When there is emotional or physical pain, you can ask yourself: 1. Which colour does th...

Re: this was unexpected

When I try to do without an old habit I find it somehow limiting if I say: "I will never do this or that again." It feels like I am putting my life in a box with the lable "vegetarien, non-drinker..." and thereby losing a piece of freedom. For example with meat it works much better not to say: "I am...

Re: Vegetarian

I agree with Trev. Being a vegetarian I don't see any difficulty in getting sufficient protein's etc. from any other thing. The only reason I can imagine for eating meet is the comsumption while eating it. But with all the negative aspects, economically, ecologically and health-wise (with all the su...

the trap of being aware...

Hey everyone... I came across a audio tape of Adyashanti, which really struck me. I actually meant to do a new thread but it more or less seems to suit in here. As far as I understand it Adyashanti talks about the ego-trap of trying to be aware. Who does not know the many Zen-Storys which are only a...

Re: Vegetarian

I don't know if Eckhart is Vegetarian. But I seem to think having read that Yoga masters who proceed on the journey to enlightment until total dileverance quit eating meal very soon because it contradicts one of the most important path of a Yogi, which is "Ahimsa". That means trying not to harm any ...
