Re: Capturing Nature

A tree for example, is simply being, our only purpose as a human is to be that awareness of the tree, in this way the tree is become aware of itself through us. This is why humans are often described as being made in the image of God. Not sure I understand what you mean by the 'tree becoming aware ...

Re: Capturing Nature

Just that you seem to be falling into a trap I know well: You've had the insight that there is nothing you need to do, no grand transformation you need to strive towards, no piercing of the veil, no working at being 100% present ... and then you talk about "having to" do something. Have I misunders...

Capturing Nature

I would appreciate your ideas and comments on this thought. Narcissism is an epidemic, where authentic listening is a lost art. And I'm sure we have all experienced having a conversation with someone and it's all about them and their interests. When the conversation isn't about them they veer it bac...

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 the...

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. So basically, forgiveness means, "You hurt me really bad and I feel angry. I processed the whole ordeal ...

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 ...

Re: A Question About Forgiveness & Forgetting

I completely understand about forgiving and healing oneself. But does forgiveness also means forgetting about the whole ordeal?

Re: law of attraction and being present

what do you know of his core beliefs? What do you even know of your own? What we profess is secondary to what we deeply believe. Lots of people claim a belief with stated certainty yet fear the opposite. So what then is the real belief? Which holds sway? WW WW, do you think we have any chance to ch...

Re: A Question About Forgiveness & Forgetting

The question for me is what makes otherwise good people do bad things? How much of that person is truly embodied in a specific action? If we could quantify how much of the person's brain was responsible for initiating the bad deed, could we rightly claim it represents the whole person, or even the ...

A Question About Forgiveness & Forgetting

"Forgive & Forget" "Let Bygones Be Bygones" "The Past Is The Past" "Forget The Past & Let's Move Forward" "Love Thy Enemies" It seems to me that these are spiritual sayings and not "down-to-earth." If a man rapes a child, we are suppose to forgive him? It seems to me the art of forgiveness is about ...

Who determines that it's good? Al Capone thought he was doing good by killing the competition. And he received good by owning Chicago. In his view, he did good and received good.

Re: What Is A Law Called When It Has Restrictions?

Law of Attraction is not so much about what you think and desire, but about what you feel and believe. While you may want to hook up, you may actually believe it's not likely to happen, so it doesn't. Your statement: "In countries like China or North Korea, no matter how much you applied the Laws o...

What Is A Law Called When It Has Restrictions?

When I was in the military it was 90% men and 10% women. This was way before the internet. All day long we dreamed of women - relationships and sex. After work we would go wherever we heard there were women. No matter how hard we tried nothing manifested. In countries like China or North Korea, no m...

Re: law of attraction and being present

From my understanding, Eckhart Tolle teaches us that we don't choose life, life chooses us. When we live in the now, our paths will be clear and true. I don't choose to be a teacher, doctor, etc., that career field chooses me. Doesn't the LoA say we need to focus our energies on what we want, change...
