Re: Advantage of Awakening?

There are some advantages that come with "Awakening". For one the search is over. Everyone is seeking consciously or not. It may seem that we are all seeking something else, but in the end its all the same. For those that actually reach the goal, it was not because of any gifts or rewards that pushe...

Re: I Am That

The "absolute" is not a state nor is there any experience. There is only silence. This silence is no-thing yet not empty, but full to the rim and running over. It is both and neither. A beautiful contradiction : )

Re: I Am That

In the "absolute" even the Self disappears. 61 Immortality is freedom from the feeling: ‘I am’. Yet it is not extinction. On the contrary, it is a state infinitely more real, aware and happy than you can possibly think of. Only self-consciousness is no more. Who would remain even to say ‘I am the wi...

Awareness can exist without consciousness, but consciousness cannot exist without awareness. We are not ...

Re: Reading "I Am That" makes me sad

I agree with Dimo. Spirit can never be hurt nor feel sad. Emotions are reactions to thought. When we feel an emotion such as sadness, it just means that the belief in a separation from "God" (also known as ego) could come to an end..... but what is death to ego is life to spirit : )

Re: I feel I can't be happy until I meet the one.

Hi Andyzen! Happiness is your very nature, which appears when the thought that causes suffering is removed. In your case the thought may be "I feel I can't be happy until I meet the one". Tolle suggests that the key to any unfavorable circumstance is to go within and access the presence that is with...

Re: What is Space?

Das space exist when you are in deep sleep or in deep meditation or "no thought" ? I wonder if space is part of the illusion.

Re: no such thing as an accident

Hi Tammy!
Even though I agree with you that nothing happens by "accident", I don't believe that everything that happens to us is due to a negative mind set. I see every experience as a blessing leading us to a "higher good".
