Re: Compulsions are you aware of them

To the serious seekers out there who want to completely end their search, I recommend you read this piece below . Drop it All, Even "What is Truth?" What is the truth, and what does it do for you?

Re: Success!!!

Humans may be deluded as all get out when it comes to internal matters (mind/ego/etc.), but we're pretty darn good at getting things done in the external world. hmm ... is it possible that the Curiosity Rover is going in the wrong direction ? :wink: ... but yes, it is a success ! .. job well done !

What instead is permanent (constant) , is the seeing of it (now, I'm present, .. now I'm not).

Re: Why does time pass so fast when we are older?

Hmm.. How would one remove all his accumulated memories then? Tolle says not to dig up the past. Instead, we should deal with it as it manifests in the present Remember ... memories buried alive never die, they will show up. So the chances of them showing up in the present are most likely to occur....

Re: The best explanation of free will ever

I haven't listened to the whole talk as yet as it's rather long, but in his early comments set-up he says "I hope to convince you that free will is an illusion"....
