It does take a little practice. But I think you will find the results enlightening. Don't get too caught up in the words. They are only signposts. After an initial understanding of direction they will only get in the way. Here's another little tip to accomplish that same opening of Space. Put your p...

Favorite Metaphors

Who has a favorite metaphor? It can be short or long. It can be one you have heard or read, or it can be one of your own making. Metaphors can be great enlightening tools. It's often easier to relate to idealogical pictures than it is to written words. I like the one that relates the stillness of a ...

Go mindless

Mc, in an earlier post on another thread, I suggested a method of opening some space to Be. Now, I realize that this question was posted prior to that but, if I may, I would like to expand upon it here. I began a new thread on the subject also but is seems to have gone cold. I referred to it earlier...

Viv, If you honestly want to know Truth then you are ready. Where we start from is less relevant than what we start with, and that is a genuine desire to know. If you have that and you are willing to make major sacrifices then Truth can be realized. It can be Lived. Now what is it, you may ask, must...

Void, in many ways the search for truth is a vain search. It's like searching for the keys to your car when all the while they are in your pocket. To make matters worse the car doesn't run anyway and it's already parked in front of your destination. You can run around in a panic trying to find someo...

Clearing Space

Eckhart Tolle told us, in our movement towards Presence-Awareness, to develope a sense of spaciousness. Others have made similar suggestions. I find that this is a significant key in our return to True Being. But how are we to attain this spaciousness. Spaciousness as it relates to Awareness is a na...

Anth, to get Tolle's view on identity I suggest you go to his many works and get it from the source. I would not presume to speak for him. That being said, I do recall Tolle saying that we are, in our True Identity, Presence-Awareness itself. I remember it because it hit me like a brick on the noggi...

By the way MC, I'm happy you have found possiblities in my tip on "clearing space" for Being. I hope you will report back and let us know how it goes. The subject may be worth starting a new thread. I'm out of time here this Am, maybe this afternoon.

It's about identity vs Identity. All thinking has inherent risk in it, but thinking in and of itself is not the problem. The problem comes from identifying with the thoughts themselves. It's like driving a car. Cars can be dangerous if not used properly. They can do you harm or they can take you gre...

Watching thought

Hi everyone. I'd like to add my 2 cents worth on the difficulty of watching thought. Most anyone new to the reawakening process is likely to have some difficulty watching thought. And as much as it can be an effective tool in regaining our natural state, it is but a tool. There is a risk in getting ...

Signing In

Hello every One. Just found this board. I picked up ET about a year ago after sitting on a plateau for about ten years. Power of Now kicked me off that plateau and back into a more active pursuit of Awareness. I've been filled with gratitude ever since. Reality is returning. See you on the boards.
