Karma - Who Is The Judge

I belong to a group of people who are into the LOA and other books with the same theme, but not Eckhart Tolle. We always argue when it comes to Karma. They are a firm believer of, "What goes around comes around." "Put out good and you get good. Put out bad and you get bad." One member recently got f...

A Question

Lets say a person weighs 400 pounds and he decides to make changes. For the next two weeks he eats healthy, drinks water and exercises everyday. However, everyday he gets on the treadmill he is thinking about sleeping and hates being on the treadmill. Each time he eats a salad he dreams of eating at...

Intuition & Guidance

Everyday embracing silence and living mindfulness will bring about peace, harmony and guidance. You get that "inner nudge." You don't live life, life lives you. Do you think one gets this "inner nudge" at one's job to make money too? For example, I belong to a live trading room for FOREX. We make mo...

Re: life will lead you to the right path...

People say, "Follow your heart." "Do what you love." "Love will guide you." But what is love? I read one Philosopher say that love is the continual focus of appreciation on something. Whatever you continually appreciate you will love. But I would think that would be "ego-love." From my perspective, ...

Millions & Millions Are Awakening. Where Are They?

Where are these millions and millions of people who are awakening? I live in southern California, about 1.5 hours from Los Angeles, the second largest city in the USA. I'm a social person and I don't know one person who meditates on a daily basis and/or attempts to be in the now. At the Zen Monaster...

Re: Relationships: Physical and Sexual Attraction

Postby Phil2 » Mon May 12, 2014 2:02 am Why not let come what comes, and go what goes ? Why search at all ? I understand what you are saying. When I was around 40-years-old I use to spend a lot of time at the Zen Center on Mt. Baldy on the weekends, and I would take their 1 week seminars when they o...

Relationships: Physical and Sexual Attraction

I've read all of Eckhart Tolle's books and I try to daily meditate and carry it into the day. I'm aware of my ego (wanting mind) and I have a question. I've been dating, mostly using various online dating sites, and I have met so many women who are full of drama, they talk my right ear off, short te...

Re: We Don't Live Life, Life Lives Us

Hi Andy, Thank you for posting on my thread and taking an interest. During the 6 mile walk it is not totally silence. I often say to myself, "Wow, that was a beautiful tree!" "The sun feels so warm on my face." I often have a short commentary on what I just experienced. I did read in Eckhart Tolle b...

Re: We Don't Live Life, Life Lives Us

Hi Andy,

Thank you for responding to my post. From my understanding, you are asking if there are any other examples? If this is what you are asking I'm not consciously aware of any. I would very much hear your experiences.

We Don't Live Life, Life Lives Us

I'm a Zen student and I've been meditating 30 minutes every morning and then I walk 6 miles practicing "no thought" or just experiencing and noting. For example, I can feel the cold wind blow against my face and my fingers, I notice the cloud formation, the beautiful flowers, the stunning tree, with...

Re: Eckhart Contradicts Other Spiritual Teachings?

Thank you for pointing out that the Law of Attraction and The Secret books are about building form. However, from what I understand from Eckhart teachings, and please correct me, is that when we build form it should be from spirit. For example, as we meditate and embrace silence, as we walk in natur...

Spiritual Advice Is Just That - Spiritual Advice

I was wondering if people would agree with me on this concept: Many people have been abused as children, which they bury deep into their subconscious. However, as adults we often have negative thoughts about the opposite sex, or same sex, or about relationships, or life in general. For example, a wo...

Re: Eckhart Contradicts Other Spiritual Teachings?

They can be helpful to counterbalance years of negative thinking. Pin a note on your bathroom mirror that says, "I am not my thoughts." However, wouldn't learning to "let go" of negative thinking and embracing the silence be more effective in counterbalancing years of negative thinking than affirma...
