Re: Awakening Through Mindfulness

Hi, Just an FYI, of you do shorter posts you will get more responces. It's a bit overwhelming to read it all. You said- If you believe in God, you can use the belief itself as an aid towards changing your attitude. Many people consider themselves as a puppet of the God’s hands. That helps them chan...

Awakening Through Mindfulness

One of the reasons for much of the suffering that we go through in life is taking life too seriously. It is not uncommon though; almost everyone is so serious about the drama of life. So, everyone has assumed that there is no way out of it. But, there is a potential for a change in your attitude tow...

Re: The Journey Of A Seeker - My Story

Since you mentioned Albert Einstein, I want to say something about him. He was either enlightened or in the verge of realizing himself.. His insights were very deep. Abraham Moslow considers him as a self-actualizing person. Self-actualization is somewhat similar to enlightenment. The characteristic...

Re: The Journey Of A Seeker - My Story

Thanks Steve.. I am searching for more stories like this and I am collecting data from the stories... Any story of awakening where the person found out what changes occur in the brain as the result will be useful for this research. I already came across a few stories and I have discussed them in ano...

Re: The Journey Of A Seeker - My Story

I read an interesting story just now.. (http://www.prevention.com/health/brain-health/how-stroke-led-one-brian-scientists-enlightenment) Even as a little girl growing up in Terre Haute, IN, Jill Bolte Taylor, PhD, was fascinated by the human mind—drawn, she says, by observing her older brother, who ...

Re: The Journey Of A Seeker - My Story

I told Onceler in a thread that I was soon going to write more about my life as a spiritual seeker and what happened to me over the years.. He said he was looking forward to it.. So, I thought he might be interested in reading it. I think this excerpt will make more sense when you read the whole art...

Also, if there is anything you want to discuss about spirituality, enlightenment, the teachings of Tolle, etc, in this thread, I would enjoy reading it. Yeah, T...

Re: The Journey Of A Seeker - My Story

Hi Steve, Whenever I went to the ashram, I didn't talk to anyone there.. I also didn't stay in the ashram.. I usually book a room outside the ashram and meditate in the ashram in the day or just roam on the hill.. But there are lot of books available in Tamil that were never translated to English. I...

A detailed account of Enlightenment

I found this online: http://www.mahadevi.info/Mahadevi_FFTE_ch1_en.pdf

It sounds like a fairy tale but very interesting. It is hard to think that someone would just make up a story like this, she sounds honest.. What are your thoughts?

Watching the Thinker

Here is a part from "The Power of Now"... Start listening to the voice in your head as often as you can. Pay particular attention to any repetitive thought patterns, those old gramophone records that have been playing in your head perhaps for many years. This is what I mean by "watching the thinker,...

Re: Time consists only of past and future

Unfortunately, you copied the entire excerpt word for word, without citing the source, doing this is plagiarism. You could have picked out a main topic (ie. Time) that you wanted to discuss and write your own post. I understand.. I was going to mention his name anyway, after seeing a few replies. S...
