Re: Isn't Discussion Generating More Thinking?

Shouldn't be saying this but anyway who cares ~ this is an interesting, enlightening thread, bringing the different colours of the rainbow together. And when different colours of the rainbow come together, we get white. This thread reminds me of what I felt some time ago ~ that I am but a cell in th...

Re: Be Still and Know That I am God

I have added 2 words to the phrase - one with - to make it sound less pompous.
so now it is Be Still and Know that I am One With God.

Re: Wanting Is Thinking

I have several different opinions regarding this statement... I'm not really sure that this world favours positive people. In many instances you can immediately hold yourself up to harsh scrutiny by offering a higher, lighter perspective. Even though I have always attempted to bring good things, po...

Re: Wanting Is Thinking

People who are depressed, negative or class themselves as nihilistic are opposing something. There is always the opposite lurking within them. A depressed person can only be depressed because they know about and want happiness. Going the other way is no better. This world favours positive, optimist...

Re: How to push oneself to go back to work

because I feel superficial in all my social interactions. We talk about things which seem so unreal like politics. I just spent several days away from my own family, to be with my own siblings. I find that I have to put on different masks. I became a sister to 2 older sisters and 1 older brother. Th...

Re: Is the waking world a dream?

It is a very long.... dream that 6 million people are dreaming. We are born into this reality which is made up of learned perceptions and conditioning of what the world looks like. I wonder what babies see in this realm? I wonder what people who can see beyond see? Is it just light? Atoms? We are to...

How to push oneself to go back to work

Having suffered from depression for 5 years, still under therapy/on medication and medically boarded out 6 months ago by former employer, how does one prepare oneself to go back to work when one is aged 45? One cannot think deeply as one is often just sitting down reading or listening to the sounds ...

Re: I am just listening to stillness.......

Thanks for the stillness, CCB. It is now 9 pm. I am seated by my window. My boys are doing some work together. The breeze is blowing gently through the open window. It is cool now because it was a cloudy day with lots of rain. Earlier I was feeling anger arising when one of the boys was naughty. I j...

Re: Eckhart Bashing - Bring It On

The subject is "interesting". The discussion is quite humorous. Reminds me of what some people said about Jesus when he was alive. "He is crazy, he is evil, he is in cohort with Satan, let's put him down, let's crucify him". Also what people would have said about Gautama - "Crazy, so into himself, s...

Re: Be Still and Know That I am God

Don't know about other Christian churches, but the Catholic Church, being the largest organized Christian Church with 1 leader, the Pope, is changing its views on a lot of things. It is not as orthodox anymore. At least, now it does not persecute. It recognizes that quiet time is meditation. The Jes...

Re: Dalai Lama/Spritual Teachers money/possessions

As mentioned in the other thread re ET charging too much for his talks, we need to understand the modus operandi of the different teachers. The Dalai Lama is an institution, he has many sponsors and sympathizers who make huge contributions to his "cause" or temple so that they receive "good karma". ...
