Re: How did you find the forum?

I didn't find the forum, it found me. (I say that because even though I actually Googled something, I can't recall what I was thinking when I did it). I posted how I came to find Eckharts' teachings in a different spot. and I'll restate it here because this seems like a more appropriate place for that.
I was at a bookstore. I picked up The Power of Now in search of one more book to fulfill the "buy 2 get one free" offer. I have experience in 12-step programs and was aware of the idea that the present is all we really have. Bought the book. It collected dust by my bedside for months. One evening, in desperation because I had to read something, anything, because I had finished my other books, I began reading Eckhart's book. I read the first few paragraphs and put it down in disgust. I thought oh god, another redeemed-from-the-brink-of-suicide-bore who is now going to tell me how to live my life. I didn't pick the book up again for weeks. The next time I picked up the I read from the next chapter because I didn't want to read the drama. Now, four months later, I have read both of his books, more than once and every time I read them I see the concepts in a whole new light. I believe all of it. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to experience that the things I have intuited are not just my own "fairytale". There are others out there who have discovered the truth. It's a humbling experience. I have been a silent observer of this forum and decided to begin participating in an effort to connect on a deeper level with this movement. It's very exciting to attempt to communicate with others who have glimpsed the power of the present.


Anywho, I am sleepily (because I am trying to reduce my caffeine consumption) careening through the various topics this morning. I would like to read and comment on all the posts, 'cuz I'm on the "newcomer's pink cloud" but I don't want to wear out my welcome. I have a tendecy to be wordy. My husband can attest to that. After awhile he just blocks me out. Which is too bad for him because I have some really good things to convey. :lol: Is that my ego talking or what?

I've been an active member of another site, but I'm really interested in connecting with others who have been changed by the ET information. I did a search and found the fan site which led to this discussion community. I look forward to reading and possibly posting.

Welcome judi! We hope you enjoy your stay. This is a place full of words. Hopefully some truth leaks through between them. :)

Words are a pet peeve of mine. How accurate are they? When they fail, who is at fault, the reader or the writer?

... and don't let me get started on translations :D
