Re: I have a question!

I simply wanted to know why he sais: WHAT OTHERS DID TO YOU HAVE YOU DONE TO THEM. Maybe it is a language problem because the way you write it has a very different meaning. What he actually says is: you were doing to others what you thought others were doing to you. To put simply: you were behaving...

Re: I have a question!

Hi nowforever, Your father has abused you. And your life is a complete mess because of that. In this example, this is the original experience in which you are the victim of your father's unconscious behaviour of abuse. This then makes up part of your conditioning, and then in later life you may perc...

Re: I have a question!

Is this the quote? p189 "Very unconscious people experience their own ego through its reflection in others. When you realize that what you react to in others is also in you (and sometimes only in you), you begin to become aware of your own ego. At that stage, you may also realize that you were doing...

Re: What happens according to Eckhart when commiting Suicide

Hi Marcell, he mentions suicide briefly in a meditation from Amsterdam. He said the following: "the unconscious patterns survive, they will seek a new body and you end up with the same problems." "So that which is much better than suicide ......is self annihilation of the person". "its a kind of sui...

Re: Experience of awareness in deep dreamless sleep

Question: Are the Siddhis (super-natural powers) mentioned in Patanjali’s Sutras true or only his dream? Sri Ramana Maharshi: He who is Brahman or the Self will not value those Siddhis. Patanjali himself says that they are all exercised with the mind and that they impede Self-realisation. Question:...

Re: How to wake up

Hi Adi, maybe dont worry too much about the conceptual for now, and explore more the experiential, and go further into the body. In PON, in the section about the inner body Eckhart writes: The fact is that no one has ever become enlightened through denying or fighting the body or through an out-of-t...

Re: Family? ego trap

Hi sumbrero, these are some pointers from Eckhart that help me: If others seem to cause reactions in you, pay more attention to the reaction itself. Allow other people their unconsciousness. Change in others happens most when you no longer need them to change their behaviour. Bring acceptance to wha...

Re: vegetarian/vegan

Hopefully that clip will become available again, because he does spend most of his answer talking about how badly animals are treated.

Re: vegetarian/vegan

Hi Trev, he said that he is not vegetarian, but chooses to eat meat from animals that have been treated humanely. He also said its important not to make being vegetarian part of an identity.

Re: Dealing with my very unconscious, high temper dad

Still, I DO have a pain body of my own and it will react, at least initially, to the assault on my ego. Over the years, my wife and I have worked on this a great deal and she has begun listening to Eckhart Tolle who has given us a better language to talk about what is going on. The pain body wants ...

Re: Struggling with surrendering

Hi costello, Eckhart says in PON to imagine you are transparent to the noise, so you imagine it passing straight through you. He suggests that you start by practicing on noises that only annoy you a little bit, when that works, move onto a slightly more annoying noise and so on.

Re: My ego is using enlightenment (future) to end suffering

Hi pbale, I went through a similar phase to this where you desire it and fear it at the same time. A sudden awakening as Eckhart says is very rare, in a talk he said that for most people its more like a spiral movement - so many steps forward, so many back and so on. Also, I think it is useful at ti...

Re: Eckhart Contradicts Other Spiritual Teachings?

Peace, in large part, comes from knowing we have the ability to choose the the quality of our experience through the quality of our thoughts and beliefs, and ultimately the nature of our feelings (feeling after all is the essence of experience) - that nothing (no thing) is superior to our conscious...
