what is the most important part of power of now ?

Post by weichen » Sat Jul 15, 2006 4:00 pm

ET has many books and tapes right now, I ask myself two questions
1. what is the most important part ?
2. How much percentage of ET's teaching have I grasped ?

My current answers to these two questions are:
Q1.
99% of ET's essense is WHY (why we need to choose another state (be present) for every moment). 1% of ET is how to access the power of now.

Q2
I would say less than 1% a few days ago, maybe 20% today.
This is because even though I had been spending several hundred hours reading and listening to ET for over a year, my focus had always been on intellectual understanding "HOW" to access power of now and some occasional practice. In the last few days, I suddenly see "WHY" due to personal crisis. It is mainly feeling, it is beyond words, (having said that), I will try to use words to summarize how I feel: without a very compelling reason WHY (on the scale of life or death), we will always be at the stage of scratching the surface of disidentifying from the mind. We can talk about "Why" we should disidentify from the mind and have successful experience how it helps our life but still fall far short of the true power of NOW

1. what is the most important part ?
ET has said this many times.

It is the space between words.

It is the space in which "you" are reading these words.
my focus had always been on intellectual understanding "HOW"
I suddenly see "WHY"


When you let go of both of these, then you will no longer:
fall far short of the true power of NOW

Yes.

It's your true nature.

It's pure consciousness.

It's what you are in your essence.

ET: "You are the now".
