Re: Who feels their inner body?

Hi DylanDude, when you started experimenting with this you had very powerful experiences, this seems to have made you lose your balance a bit, maybe try using acceptance as a portal into the now instead. The bottom part of your post contains a lot of comparison to others. This link may be useful in ...

Re: Karma - Who Is The Judge

As long as there are other people in the world who are not even getting their basic needs of food and shelter met though, I have no desire to be rich. What can we do? Many little small acts of kindness and gentleness, like feeding kittens and helping our neighbor can add up over time, to change the...

Thanks Danielle, I really like some of the imagery too, especially the drawing of a child with scribbles filling up the head.

Re: A Question About Forgiveness & Forgetting

Yes, when you fully realise and accept that the person who hurt you was acting unconsciously, then forgiveness occurs. But like you say there might be a lot of processing that needs to take place before you get to that point, and for some people that may involve some kind of therapy to help get them...

Re: A Question About Forgiveness & Forgetting

I would not say that forgiveness automatically means you forget, there may be important lessons to be learned from the experience - one of them being as you have said, to learn not to repeat it.

Re: The Ego Is My Friend

I like the evolutionary view of the ego as expressed in the following clip - and the idea of gratitude towards the ego.

Re: Resistance Is Futile

Eckhart has spoken of the process of awakening as being like a spiral movement, that is partly a forward momentum and partly a backward momentum - although he adds that the backwards is not really 'backwards'. When we are on the backwards part of the spiral it feels heavier and we have more anxiety,...

Re: A Question About Forgiveness & Forgetting

Hi David, I imagine as forgiveness develops the more we remind ourselves that it's human unconsciousness, the feeling behind the 'ordeal' would then be changed. Sometimes we want to hold onto our memory of being the wronged person, so the story gets repeated over and over in our heads, and becomes p...

Re: A Question About Forgiveness & Forgetting

Regarding forgiveness, I like this quote from ANE p.160: There is only one perpetrator of evil on the planet: human unconsciousness. That realization is true forgiveness. With forgiveness, your victim identity dissolves, and your true power emerges --the power of Presence. Instead of blaming the dar...

Re: why I cannot make spiritual progress?

Hi someone, we can experience addictions to people and it can have a powerful hold on us. It's an addiction to a fantasy really, because it's our imagined idea of the person rather than the reality. In a way it could be useful to you, because something that is very painful creates a strong desire to...

Hi Michael,

In this clip Eckhart answers a question about crying:

"Do you cry? Is it normal to cry?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4zYFq_KCAY
