God is Closer to You than Your Self

Most people's lives are cluttered up with things: material things, things to do, things to think about. Their lives are like the history of humanity, which Winston Churchill defined as "one damn thing after another." Their minds are filled up with the clutter of thoughts, one thought after another. This is the dimension of object consciousness that is many people's predominant reality, and that is why their lives are so out of balance. Object consciousness needs to be balanced by space consciousness for sanity to return to our planet and for humanity to fulfill its destiny. The arising of space consciousness is the next stage in the evolution of humanity.

Space consciousness means that in addition to being conscious of things - which always comes down to sense perceptions, thoughts, and emotions - there is an under-current of awareness. Awareness implies that you are not only conscious of things (objects), but you are also conscious of being conscious. If you can sense an alert inner stillness in the background while things happen i the foreground - that's it! This dimension is there in everyone, but most people are completely unaware of it. Sometimes I point to it by saying, "Can you feel your own Presence?"

Space consciousness represents not only freedom from ego, but also from dependency on the things of this world, from materialism and materiality. it is the spiritual dimension which alone can give transcendent and true meaning to this world.

Whenever you are upset about an event, a person, or a situation, the real cause is not the event, person, or situation but a loss of true perspective that only space can provide. You are trapped in object consciousness itself. The words This too, will pass when used as a pointer can restore awareness of that dimension to you.

Another pointer to the truth in you is contained in the following statement: "I am never upset for the reason I think."

I think that is a enlighting.But I would wittness the caos of infinite multipable layers of thought and each word having mulitalbe meanings within and outside then emtional triggers that I can trace all the way back to childhood but nerver put iti n words until now. You know it is about describing the thought or thoughts but taking the name into each one even while having conversations,working, eating, having sex , praying, and meditating. I went to group Zhker after one person would step on my foot because she sensed I would go up and out.
I felt very inspired and peaceful when I read Tolle. I had to read it again to see if I'd missed any of those good feelings and I had.
I went thru a few years time of being aware of inner presence. I'd say what are you thinking now? what are you feeling? it brought me into a timeless state. but I can still get trapped into worrying and making stuff up to worry about. this is a good idea to ask yourself, if you can feel your own presence and be conscious of being conscious, so nothing is unconscious in that case.
sometimes I sit there and think wow I'm alive, here, it's fun to be aware of yourself, your life, to feel your heart beating. I learned stuff from every book and article these days. I hope Tolle hears my gratitude for his work.

"The mind is very manipulative.

Other's people's mind's are very manipulative.

Nondual Awareness: Transcending Duality

"The intellectual mind

The Fundamental Spiritual Practice

"In my experience,

the fundamental spiritual practice

is fully allowing this moment to be.

Not to control the thoughts,

but allow thinking to be.

Not to repress feelings/sensations

but allow all feelings/sensations to be.

Without obsessing over them,

Meditation & Devotion: Falling in Love with Peace

"When you fall in love with this peace,

you're home free.

When you're not in love with this peace,

then no matter what you attain,

what you experience,

Realizing Silence in Nature

"There's a bushwalk near my house.

It's not very well kept;

it's quite rough and wild

and because of that hardly anyone walks it.

I can walk 5 or 10 minutes

down the path and

there are no sounds of people at all.

No cars, no noises from houses.

Just pure…

Meditation & The Joy of Being Nothing

"It's a lot of effort to be a somebody;

a lot of stress.

You have to keep reinforcing

the idea to yourself and others

that you are a somebody.

You have to defend your position,

your opinions, your beliefs, your accomplishments.

You have to keep remembering …
