Good-Looking People are Very Unlikely to be Enlightened?

I remember hearing Eckhart say that in an Oprah thing. I think it was A New Earth promotion. He also said it wasn't ever a problem for him, and chuckled, haha.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Yesterday I had an incredible experience while watching this Tolle video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gr9Jh2PoHZ4). I was listening to his words and watching him while playing the Police's "Every Breath You Take" on acoustic guitar. I started to truly feel the love and beauty contained in that g...

Mantras to Meditate On?

Any mantras you guys would suggest?

So far I've got "your life situation exists in time, your life is now, your life situation is mind-stuff, your life is real." "surrender in the present moment so that you're aligned with life as it arises" "I am the unborn, unmanifest, uncreated"

Re: Not Reacting to Insults

I think I had somewhat of a Satori last night after meditating on one of Eckhart's "mantras" (your life situation is illusory, your life is real, your life situation is mindstuff, your life is now) I eventually started to laugh and say to myself "it's over", as if I just died and felt a subtle but d...

I agree, but people are too good at hiding the fact that they feel threatened

Re: Marijuana and Presence

I have had a few experiences of transcending duality and it is still nothing like that experience. That is actually exactly how I feel about my earliest experiences with cannabis I wonder what exactly was going on neurochemically and metaphysically to cause those highs, because I highly doubt any e...

I've been having deep meditative experiences/present moment awareness after smoking a very little amount late at night.

Re: I'mLooking for a Thread about a Person's Temporary Awake

Not really, but I think what I described may be a more common experience than I think. Especially on this forum, too.

I'mLooking for a Thread about a Person's Temporary Awakening

He talked about waking up into Presence and staying there for about a month. He said it was so amazing but he eventually lost it and fell into a seeming despair.

It might've just been someone's post instead of a thread, though.

Re: HOW TO DEAL WITH SEX ENERGY FORCE?

The more you are your self - meaning just you, just who you are - the easier you will find it to speak to women. I asked a pretty girl out last year for the first time. She said she had a boyfriend but it seemed she was flattered, and that she would've been interested in me if she was single, possi...

Re: Does Enlightenment make you Invincible

I would assume that Eckhart is psychologically invincible, yes.
