New and interested to know more about being aware of myself

Post by Fifth_ID » Wed Jun 19, 2013 6:45 pm

Hi,

I discovered Eckhart Tolle this year through a friend's posts on facebook.

I'm on my second reading of 'A New Earth' and have also started reading 'Freedom from the Known' which is based on J. Krishnamurti's teachings.

I have recently started being more aware of the present and lately realized that I can be more aware of the present by being more aware of myself in the present.

Also, around the time that I discovered Tolle, I also was introduced to thinking the words "I Am" when facing negative energy according to the posts of a Christian spiritual healer.

I'm interested in interacting with persons who are actively trying to be aware of themselves in the present and how it affects their lives. I've noticed less negativity around me when I'm actively aware of myself and the present moment while thinking the words 'I Am'
