Re: How Do You Look At Infidelity ?

The concept of a relationship with another person is a deep rooted one. Accusig infidelity is (at some deep level) linked with the ego's need to "own" another person.

Charlie Chaplin

Another man of wisdom... Some of his quotations: Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles. Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot. What do you want meaning for? Life is desire, not meaning. My faith is in the unknown, in all that we do not understa...

Re: Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

I have serched the entire book (there is a pdf online) to find the parts in which he talks about smoking. Are you sure we live in the same world? I do not mean nature, the sea and the land, plants and animals. They are not the problem, nor the endless space, the infinite time, the inexhaustible powe...

If you trust in this th...

Re: A Story That Helped Me Out

The whole story can be summarized with this poem of Rumi
I died as a mineral and became a plant,

Re: Some gems from ACIM

Chapter 20 - (The Vision of Holiness) - The Consistency of Means and End To obtain the goal, the Holy Spirit indeed asked little. He asks no more to give the means as well. The means are second to the goal. And, when you hesitate, it is because the PURPOSE frightens you, and NOT the means. Remember ...

This produces what seems to be a wall of flesh around the mind, keeping it prisoner in a tiny spot of space and time, beholden unto death, and g...
