Re: Living vs. Being Present; Thinking about Present/Past/Future

When we consider that thinking can take us out of the present moment, we give it special powers that it doesn't have! We never worry that digestion will take us out of the present moment, and yet thinking is not much different from digestion. Eckhart mentioned that we don't actually think, but rath...

Re: Living vs. Being Present; Thinking about Present/Past/Future

Thank you for your replies, Randji! The giver is the "I AM" from: "Be still and know that I am God!" We could also ask: who is still and who is "I"? Of course that is why your end of questions will be when there are no answers. The giver is prior to the I Am prior to consciousness a place where wor...

Re: Awakening-might it be a big illusion?

I am wondering what you accually think of the possibility of awakening. What I mean here is not what you WANT to be true, but what you accually believe. If one looks at it scientifically- how many percent of people following these similar teachings accually live in prefect harmony with their lives?...

Re: Is Eckhart FULLY realized?

Not sure what you mean but words in themselves are very limiting vs direct knowledge.
Who is the giver in your comment?

Re: favorite quote...do you have one?

Herbert Spencer:

"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance--that principle is contempt prior to investigation".

Re: Living vs. Being Present; Thinking about Present/Past/Future

Thought may not be able to touch the present moment, but thinking does happen in the present moment - just like everything else! Adya mentioned that he can be present without having to quiet his mind. The desire to get rid of the ego is egoic. When someone says: "Now that my ego is gone, I'm curiou...
