Well yes, I guess so. In my language we don't make a distinction between "feeling" and "emotion" it's the same word :)

Re: Is it possible to awaken in many lives?

Thank you for your insightful answers, very useful for me! :) Now I feel like each person has his or her own view of what enlightenment really means. For me "transfiguration" and illumination doesn't sound unattainable, I really do think it exists and I really do believe that ego can be transmuted i...

Re: Is it possible to awaken in many lives?

https://learningfromdogs.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/mapofconsciousness.gif Webwanderer you say that egos don't incarnate, but if someone looses his or her ego then they will probably not lose what is left? If illumination and transfiguration is the last steps of enlightenment, then an enlightened ...

Feelings as a compass

I used to be a fairly neurotic and paranoid person, with a lot of negative feelings, but then I came into contact with Katie Byron. Her method is to question "is it true?" whenever we have a negative thought pattern, and inquire to find what's true for us. After doing the inquire it always feels muc...

Re: Spiritual but unconscious people!

I've seen this too, Maringa. It can be very disconcerting......on the other hand, we are all human beings and it's not really surprising that 'spiritual' people are just human. I have come to believe that some of the most 'awake' people have nothing to do with spirituality or religion, couldn't tel...

Re: Spiritual but unconscious people!

I can actually understand why some people develop a "spiritual" ego because I´ve been there myself: You try to mimic certain mannerisms of spiritual teachers, you´re preaching their teachings to other people, you try to act more loving and caring towards others etc. It just becomes another mind-tec...

Spiritual but unconscious people!

Hello again, Since I started to read Tolle 2010, I've come into contact with a lot of "spiritual" people. I went to a meditation camp for example, and I was so impressed by the dedicated meditators, and they where so spiritual and "good" people. I thought "oh wow, If I could ever be this open hearte...

Tolle & vedic astrology

Hi there, I usually don't care about astrology, tarot or stuff like that. I just follow the words of tolle, and I meditate occasionally. A couple of days ago I met a very knowledgeble vedic astrologist, he was very nice and I let him do a birth chart for me. The result was pretty chocking! He told m...

This is the world NOW, and I'm lucky enough to have the possibility to interact with all this crazy stuff. I love it but I don't think I'm to att...

Is traveling through dimensions a part of awakening?

Hi there, more questions: Tolle says that human beings do all their spiritual work HERE, on earth. This dimension. Other spiritual teachings encourage lucid dreaming and astral projections as a crucial PART of spiritual development. I believe that both the sorcerers of ancient mexico and the yogis o...

Earthly pleasures, contradiction?

Hello friends, I've now read a couple of books, Carlos Castaneda (Shamanism, Sorcerers in anxient Mexico) and Ram Dass (Psychadelics, buddhism, india) and I was chocked about them talking about the SAME things. Totally different sources, totally coherent identical truths. But, here's my question. I ...

Are names spiritual?

Hi, I know I'm bombing this forum with my questions, but I'm just in this very curious and investigative mood. The more I read, the more I LEARN, the more I want to know! So, my recent question is about names. Many spiritual people choose to change their names, for whatever reason. Tolle did that a...
