Re: PRESENT SMALL STORIES - POST IF YOU HAVE ANY

A shepherd grazed his sheeps when a walker adressed him: "You got a nice flock of sheep. May I ask you something about them?" - "Of course", said the shepherd. The man asked:"What distance do your sheeps cover each day?" - "Which, the white or the black?" - "The white." - "The white cover about four...

Re: PRESENT SMALL STORIES - POST IF YOU HAVE ANY

That's a great story surprise. Once upon a time there was a king in India, who's elephant went berserk. It stampeded from village to village and destroyed everything in its way and noone dared it because it belonged to the king. One day an ascetic, who liked to aggrandise himself, wanted to leave th...

Re: Is enlightenment a leap of faith?

Oh yes, he :D is enlightend for sure, being joyous the time, while he :( hasn`t realized the joy of being yet... He :evil: on the other hand seems very deep in the grip of ego... Seriously, I can`t say anything about enlightment, but I can say something about the joy of being. Being naturally occurs...

Re: Hello!

Hello Jason... welcome to the board The teachings of ET are an incredible gift to humanity and it is grace to come across such teachings, to understand them and to live by them. I was about your age too when I read the PoN. Didn't get the hang of it back then. What blew me away was Eckhart's "A New ...

Re: Untolerable internal pressure - What's going on? Advice?

Hey Kae... From my experience and what I hear from the great teachers, there always are thoughts (mental storys) behind lasting, negative emotions. Can you identify them? If its impossible to release those emotions in awareness, maybe you can go to their root and work with thoughts instead...? All t...

Re: Believing our Thoughts

Of Andy's many recommendations this was actually the first book that didn't appeal to me so much. Maybe its because I'm rather young, but Jac O'Keeffe's example of total trancendence of the personal "I", or Adyashanti's or Byron Katie's actions in absolute unity with life seem to be in contrast to t...

Re: Tolle and Financial Question

"Spiritual teachers should only charge as much money as I think its appropriate" "Spiritual teachers should exactly be like I want them to be" Is that really true? Do you realize how insane it is to believe a thought that contradicts reality in such an obvious way? The bird sings, the dog barks and ...

Re: Abundance

I guess this is one of the reasons why Tolle appeals to so many people. He is not a hardcore non-dualists who sort of cuts off every question with "how is asking this question", "you don`t exist" etc. but rather reaches out to people in what appears to be a partly dualistic approach. The "problem" w...

If everything is good, all is one and their is no meaning to it anyway, why take action at all?

Re: PRESENT SMALL STORIES - POST IF YOU HAVE ANY

Meanwhile 10,000 other people got jobs enabling them where, in their spare time, they could fish a little, play with their kids, take siestas with their lovers, stroll to the village in the evenings where they could sip wine and play the guitar with their amigos. Or 10.000 other people getting jobs...

Re: PRESENT SMALL STORIES - POST IF YOU HAVE ANY

An American businessman was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellow fin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The Mexica...

Re: Compulsive Thinking (cessation of)

Thinking is not the problem. Identification with thoughts is the problem. Thinking cannot be controled but identification can be dropped. If thoughts are not taken for real, there can be loads of them or none, it doesnt matter since there is always peace. And if there is no more energy invested into...
