Re: Is Eckhart FULLY realized?

I have a request for sevenworlds. Expand your current website or start a new one/blog detailing your feelings about what we have talked about since your question started a very intriguing thread. It explains why a lot of people are/were searching for themselves, why people are lost in the world, why...

Re: Does becoming ego-less have socially negative effects?

Sorry, I am losing all of you. Simple short English please. I thought ego is the self that is reactive, opinionated, judgmental, critical, biased. To be ego-less in the human sense is to be non-reactive, non-judgmental, non-critical, unbiased. Therefore, to be ego-less will lead to a positive world....

Re: What role does shedding tears have in the Now?

I suppose there are several kinds of crying. Some cry to get attention (children), some cry because they are emotional (sad, angry, hurt), some cry because they are touched (like watching a good movie). But there is a type of crying where it just happens. This I have experienced in meditation severa...

Re: Trees

Javonni, where do you get these pictures? They are just astounding and truly magical. What tree was that one? See, I still want to know its label. :oops: I took my boy for a walk in the park yesterday evening and this morning. We walked on the stream where many parents had brought their children as ...

Re: Is Eckhart FULLY realized?

All I know is that when I read his books, it just touches me. And it encourages me to let go the ego. If even the book can do that, what more the person in person? Has anyone in this forum ever met ET and felt his presence? I hope to meet him someday though.

Re: Trees

James, you reminded me of something I often see in trees - elephants. Somehow there are always elephants on large trees. I first had this experience in Bangkok when I noted that the Thais revere large trees and tie a yellow cloth around the trunks. Another experience I have with elephants in trees w...

Re: Teachers teaching.

That is true, Webwanderer. I am aware that everyone is a teacher. And the lesson learned is that money and spirituality do not mix too well as there is greed when money comes to play. But at the point in time, it all seem so genuine...

Re: Is Eckhart FULLY realized?

I'm not angry. You are interpreting my words as taking an angry tone because my responses are not what you are conditioned to believe should be coming from an awakened person. Eckhart's teaching doesn't help with this. The anger is just a form of energy. To awaken, you must throw both out - calmnes...

Re: death of ego and depression

I know I am feeling blue... but why do I feel like crying? In the last hour, I just watched the movie Bolt with my 3 sons and we totally enjoyed it. Now I feel sad... My ego is whispering to me that I am not good enough, that I will soon tire myself with this forum. In fact, when I read stuff that a...

Re: Trees

Japanese Maple in autumn? One of my favourites! I only see it in books and photos. We don't have maple in Malaysia, too hot. The maple tree. It looks so magical brilliant golden amber when all else is green. What a wondrous sight to behold to see its twisted trunk reach for the sky. Can you see the ...

Re: Why Everyone is SO Serious?

Ok I have one that you might like, this is a true story: There is an old legend about a Zen student who once asked his master "how do I enter Zen?" The master said: "Do you hear the sound of potato chip crunching?" Student: "Yes I do." Master: "Enter Zen There" Student: "But master, what if I said ...

Re: Teachers teaching.

Who is the teacher? How do we know when a person is a teacher? I mean, I came across ET by chance in a library. If I had not found tPON, I probably would never have known about him. Is Deepak Chopra a teacher or just a writer? What about Neale Donald Walsch? Wayne Dyer? I ask because I have come acr...
