Pleased To Find You All

Post by Moonlight » Tue May 02, 2006 6:57 pm

Hello everyone, i'm Moonlight from England & really glad to find this great place . So nice to find somewhere full of other like minded people as I don't really know anyone in my own life who shares my love of spiritual truth. I have only just begun to catch up on some of the topics here & i'm really looking forward to reading all of your words of wisdom :D .

For years I have accumulated many spiritual & self help books but nothing has touched me as deeply as Eckhart. I remember first reading an interview with him in a magazine & I was instantly hooked. Eckhart's words made such an impact that I had to race straight to the internet & order his books there & then. Eckhart's books are now like a bible to me.

I just feel such a deep longing to spend more of my life in that place of such beauty ,peace & love that I only seem to glimpse here & there. I am driven to keep looking to see what stands in my way of the depth I know is here. I'm not sure if it's my love of spirit or how unbearable the pain body is that keeps me searching. It's probably both.

Hmm I sense myself coming over all vague so I think i'll leave my introduction there. Last thing I want to do is bore people on a first post

:lol: I look forward to seeing you round the forum...

Hi Moonlight!

Welcome aboard!
nothing has touched me as deeply as Eckhart.
Same here! The portals of the Power of Now are the best.

I look forward (in the now!) to your posts.

Cheers! :D

Hello Moonlight. I am also new here, and also from the UK, so we have two things in common. ^^ A third is now this forum. ;)

For myself I would say that in my late teens a realised a division between religion and spirituality. I felt myself religious but could no longer connect with my church. I felt bad because on one level I felt I was letting the side down, so to speak, but honestly couldn't see the point in going if I got nothing out of it except the reflexive, habitual nod to my God that yes I was there to acknowledge he existed.

It's only recently that I explored any aspect of spirituality at all. I'm not one who has huge stacks of books on the subject (most of my books actually cover the Titanic) but I honestly don't feel the need for anything beyond the PoN. I recognise the conflicts I still suffer for what they are; I guess I am really just looking for the support of others with similar experiences as I make the transition.

Hello Chelsy, gina & mccpcorn & thank you for the welcome :)

Mccpcorn you are right in that you certainly don't need a great stack of spiritual books ( I don't buy as many as I used to ! ) . For me though ,such books are a real portal in awakening me from wallowing in the story of me . Of course Eckhart says all you need to know but I still find many treasures in the books of others. I enjoy reading how others put into words " that which cannot be described". I always find something that brings me renewed inspiration & reading these books brings me to a presence that I find hard to find without them.

Actually one of the great things about these books is that I can read them again & again & they always seem fresh & bring a different perspective each time. If I could only keep one spiritual book though it would have to be Eckhart's A New Earth .

I too am here to find others who are going through this process of awakening. It's certainly a great challenge to awaken from the dream of thought & find our shining presence within. I'm glad i've found such a supportive place as this which should make the journey a little easier.
