Re: MY STROKE OF INSIGHT

nothing out of the ordinary is her message, I believe. When her left brain was completely quieted, she experienced the oneness and connection with the universe. Exactly her message, nothing out of the oridinary, we are all meant to live with this part of us wide open too. Matthew Fox speaks of this ...

Re: Hurricane

Have already thought of you w4tvq, and will continue. I don't think it would be a normal response to not be scared of a hurricane heading your way. I'm praying for you and your wife's safety, as well as all the others living there. Hope this one decides to make a turn away from land.

Re: MY STROKE OF INSIGHT

I watched an interview of this doctor, and find her quite amazing. I recently read a book that brings this idea of the left and right brain into a great understanding of ourselves. For me, it is just another way to describe what we have all been talking about. I usually talk of the mind and the hear...

Re: A New Earth/ Oprah

Here are a few lines I came across today on the internet that may apply to this thread. Certainly, they reflect a phenomenon I have come across here and there, hopefully not too often in the mirror. The source is Louise Erdrich , who according to Wikipedia is a Native American author and poet. I co...

Re: A New Earth/ Oprah

I have little doubt that he would be taken down by the religious establishment of our day and crucified once again, in order to save the church that has been created in his name. Namaste Art Created in his name? Or created in the name of political or social agendas? I think it is interesting there ...

Re: Introduce Yourself

Art, this is a beautiful expression of what your truth and path is. It makes me want to honour my own, which is just as unique! It reminds me that all teachers, books, fellow seekers give us a little piece, and we will never fit into the mold of each, for that is not us. This really touches me, for ...

Re: Learning from our past?

So, in the end, it looks to me as though evil occurs because of humankind's misunderstanding and misuse of the great gift of intellect. Who would have thought that such a great, heavenly gift such as this, could be so misused and contaminated to produce such a thing as the Holocaust? But it did. It...

Re: Here's A List!

This is a good list. I had heard a phrase a while back that struck me very true, and that is spiritual neglect. I had never thought of it before, but we can spiritually neglect our kids, just like physical or emotional neglect. This would be an interesting subject to explore...

Re: A New Earth/ Oprah

Has anyone been over at Oprah's website to watch the classes with Tolle or participate in the dboard? I took part in it and it was an awesome experience, but very time consuming. I feel like I've crawled out of a cave and back in the sunlight! Truly it was an experience like I've never been through ...

Re: Turning Points

Speculum, those are beautiful and revealing words by Rumi. I thought this page fom tolle's book makes this idea of human nature and relationship quite clear. It is addressed to relationships with children, but is universal. " You are a human being, What does that mean? Mastery of life is not a`...

Re: Burning the Past (3/20/08)

Nice to see that you have found Nisargadatta. Now there’s a living book! I agree. It truly does feel like he his here, alive, teaching me. The only other teacher that has done this to me was Simone Weil. She talked directly to me through her writing and my view of life has changed so much since I r...

A New Earth/ Oprah

Oprah is having a series on Elkhart Tolle's book A New Earth. Christians are launching an attack campaign on Oprah. Any thoughts on this? I'm personally thrilled to have this kind of spiritual discussion going on in our country. I just read a quote somewhere, don't remember where or who said it but ...
