Re: I really need somebody to talk me through this

Spend your wealth on the best psychiatrist that money can buy. Or build your own eco-dome, replete with climate control, sterilised air, water and soil. If you live on Earth, unpredictable weather and pollution is everywhere. There is no escaping it. Spirituality is not the solution to every problem...

Re: Why does presense doesn't work in me??

Let me explain presence with an analogy. You are a bird lover, and you enjoy hearing birds singing. As you go about your day, every time you hear a bird singing, you become still to listen to the song. Now you are a spiritual practitioner. As you go about your day, every time you are aware that ther...

People Would Rather Be Shocked Than Sit alone for 15 minutes

"How much do we hate being alone with our own thoughts? Enough to give ourselves an electric shock. In a new study, researchers recruited hundreds of people and made them sit in an empty room and just think for about 15 minutes. About half of the volunteers hated the experience. In a separate experi...

Re: Don't know how to forgive, never have + extreme rage

Whenever you feel a negative emotion like anger, immediately put your awareness into your body. Feel the emotion in your body, and the emotion will dissolve fairly quickly(in a matter of minutes). This is how to deal directly with a negative emotion, how to remove negativity from your body. There is...

Re: How to use Eckhart Tolle's teachings to beat Insomnia?

Spirituality is not the solution to every problem. :) Awareness(in the head or in the body) requires a small amount of attention, and so while awareness can bring about peace and relaxation, it also requires that you remain somewhat alert, and this make it more difficult to sleep. That is my experie...

Re: What will happen to this society of ours?

Eckhart Tolle likes to espouse the idea of a flowering of awakened beings, a transformation of world consciousness, and without mentioning even vague details, a movement into a different world, a different way of living. The flowering is happening right now. But there is no guarantee of a world tra...

Re: To stop the voice or watch?

When you are aware of thought, it usually subsides quickly. But sometimes thought goes on and on, taking it's sweet time. :) But that is not a problem. You can be at peace and at ease when thought is absent, AND you can be equally at peace and at ease when thought is present. Why? Because you are st...

Re: Which spiritual books you most often come back to?

In terms of spiritual books, I've only read TPON and A New Earth. I found what I was seeking, and my seeking ended.

I gave TPON to a work colleague five years ago, and ANE has been gathering dust on the shelf for that long too.

They have served their purpose.

Re: Self Acceptance vs. Self Improvement

Conscious thinking and conscious action is good, unconscious thinking and unconscious action results in suffering.

Re: Questions: inner body, subtle pain-body.

If you were truly present, there would be no unease or dissatisfaction. Is this truly the case? Yes it is. In the state of presence, there is no negativity. When you are fully present, there is stillness, and negative thoughts and emotions cease to exist. I speak from experience. Doesn't bringing t...

Re: Questions: inner body, subtle pain-body.

Sometimes my awareness of it comes easily and I can hold it as an entire field. Sometimes I have to start somewhere and send awareness through the body in a "wave," but can only really hold awareness of a small part of the body at once. Sometimes the inner body seems so distant that I cannot find i...

Re: Enlightenment: What It Is And How To Get It

Enlightenment can be summed up in three words: No more suffering. Nothing special about it, and nothing special about anyone who can attain it. No spiritual knowledge is required. No need to understand anything. All that is required are practical instructions on how to become present, and that infor...
