Re: # Osho, the Movie.

If there has been a movie about Osho, I would like to watch it. I have read so many of his books and watched a few of his discourses on DVD. The man spoke and touched many. By the time I learned more about him in 2005, he had left this dimension.

Re: Nothing in the Universe is Accidental

Where sits Kuan Yin (Avalokiteshvara)? In Tibetan scriptures, she is depicted as being a male rather than female. She is what I believe is Tao, male and female in one.

Re: A Message From Shore to Ship

No one said that enlightenment comes easy. That is why there are the rare jewels who are truly enlightened. But then, even these rare jewels never had it easy. See how Jesus Christ suffered. See how the Buddha struggled with himself. I don't know about what others feel, but I am one not seeking enli...

Re: awakening is simple and easy

I kind of agree with karmarider. I have become constantly aware of myself, of my thoughts, of how I act and react. When I see myself going into a situation, I now just feel it and move on to something else. Again, that is why I do simple things like gardening. In gardening, I put my attention to wha...

Re: My Spiritual Experience so far

Yes, I believe depression is a wake-up call for one who is trapped in ego or lost in the world, and one will continue to experience it until one learns from it and no longer gets trapped in it. Some learn fast, others take a while. For me, it's been a while and it may take yet a while. I know becaus...

Ouch!!! That is so twisted for one who participates with inner growth. Next time I will duck.

Re: Is this site another way for the ego to avoid awakening?

Some mind needs to be totally satisfied intellectually before it goes silent and mends its own business in the background :twisted: Then use it for something useful like Einstein or Stephen Hawking. Or write a book about how twisted life is. This forum is going out of synthesis with long conversati...

Re: Is this site another way for the ego to avoid awakening?

Hello! Are we asking too many questions, questioning too many things, going too far and too deep about awakening? Why not just go back to basics like being empty? Are we trying to get too intellectual here?

Re: indigenous search for self in the past

For a while now, I find myself wanting to live simple like my forefathers, tilling the ground and planting stuff, touching the soil and letting nature heal. I "want" to build an eco farm retreat where one can work with nature. The modern world is becoming more and more complicated for me. That is wh...

Re: Anthony Demello

I found his books The Prayer of the Frog I & II so zen. As a Catholic, I see him as a Universal teacher although radical to the Church. I know several Jesuit priests. Some are very open and zen like he was. That's how I learned about the line "Be still and know that I am God". As I mentioned in some...

Re: indigenous search for self in the past

All indigenous people in Asia Pacific came from the same tribe (dark curly hair, large square faces, large noses, thick lips). One thing I note for those who decided to remain as they have been for ages, is that they are one with nature. They are happy with what little they have even if they are mar...
