Re: Knowing when breaking up is the right thing to do

It was an unhealthy relationship, tons of pain and hurt on both sides, amazing pain-body issues, etc.... Does Tolle ever speak of when the time is right to leave a "bad" relationship and move on with your life, especially when one (such as myself) is embarking upon this new journey of awakening and...

It seems a good test to see how enlightened you are and also pointing out the direction to be more free and truthful.

THE Perfect Spiritual Song

When I read this song (Can't you feel the love tonight from 'The Lion King') carefully, it seems to be the perfect spiritual song. WOW, every sentence, every word is spiritual. Casual comments in red: There's a calm surrender to the rush of day ( essense of spiritual practice ) When the heat of the ...

Re: How often are you truly present?

How often are you truly present? Maybe you could change the question to "How often space is present ?", or "How often space is present around thinking stream?", because when Tolle say "Be present", IMO, he refers to "space is present", "watcher is on", "awareness itself is there". I try to replace t...

Re: Procrastination

I have close friends who are the opposite of 'procreastination'. In the past, I would consider them too reckless, they do not obey traffic lights when they walk, they do not stop fully on stop signs when they drive, they got into big messes because of lack of planing. However 1. they don't procrasti...

Re: What are your Pet Peeves / Pet Hates?

One of my Pet Peeves is when my wife drops thing on the floor (on purpose?) and say "honey, could you please pick that up for me?" with the sweetest voice. ...... Quite often, I am in the other room, and after I put down my work and come to her room, I usually find her browsing the net or watch TV, ...

Re: Future = Illusion?

What's wrong with Internet browsing and other forums of bonding/exercise and other media? How do you know giving it all up is the answer (especially since you still indulge in at least one of these "vices")? Naz, I am only responding to your original query. The key was the 1 second clarity (due to ...

Re: Future = Illusion?

Anywayz, can you tell me a little bit about your conscious goal setting and how you can "bring the future into the now" without, um, not being in the now? The answer is simplicity. After the mind mutation, which leads to quiting job, throwing away TV, quiting internet chess, quit internet browsing,...

Re: conflict w/husband over weekend ignited painbody!

Stillness (inside and out) is the best gift one person can give to another person.

Only a master like Tolle can utter something so simple yet so profound.

Re: Eating as a Portal to Presence

Thanks for this wonderful thread. The title "eating as a portal to presence" implies that mindful cooking and eating is something easy to do, and presence is something hard to achieve, therefore you use something simple (mindful eating) to achieve something important (presence). This may very well b...

Re: How do I avoid the subtle traps?

For example, you are in an argument. Someone is being angry/unpleasant to you. You feel angry/hurt and defensive. You try and allow these feelings and accept them. BUT in reality, you just repress these feelings (or you end up reacting and e.g. shouting back) How do you do what is advised? If you r...

Ugly Duckling

How do I stop caring what other people think of me? There is a hidden problem with this question. It is as if the Ugly Duckling asks herself: How do I stop caring when others call me ugly? The answer is: little you is ugly right now, but it can let its beauty manifest (quite easily). Relationship be...
