Re: Eckhart Tolle on christmas

For starters read that - it's not long- and think about the implications regarding this claim of "Being" as the highest reality. Thanks Johnny, That was a great read.

Re: Eckhart Tolle on christmas

Hey Greg, There is a higher reality beyond body and mind, which is called God by religions. Eckhart Tolle prefers not to use the word ‘God’ because the word is misused for years and the moment we start with that word, we start with a bias or pre-judgements. He calls this higher reality as ‘Being’. B...

Re: The Art of Going Sideways

When I was young I thought I could parachute from the roof of our house with a shopping bag. That was The Art of Going Splat. :rolleye: I did that one too! What about killing yourself on BMX bikes? I started out on one of these before getting a proper BMX. The outcome was the same though. 30 years ...

Your point being?
I don't believe the Buddha ever used the word god or suffering as he did not speak English, the sutras have been translated. But thanks for providing all the links to those sutras, they are always a good read. :smile:

As I said, if that ultimate level cannot be told or described there is nothing to talk about.
Yes, many, but the word god is not used. Do you know a sutra where the Buddha used the word suffering?

To lie is to deliver a false statement to another person which the speaking person knows is not the whole truth, intentionally.

Re: Eckhart Tolle on christmas

it's got nothing to do with truth and less and everything to do with opinions (on both sides). Some believe Tolle has a message of truth, some do not. In both cases it is a matter of karmic predisposition. We are all at different places on the path and come from different backgrounds, but it has ev...

Re: Eckhart Tolle on christmas

2. Buddhism has no God nor does it consider any natural law ultimate. Based on point 1 it follows that: 3. Since you cannot believe in truth you cannot tell what truth is, neither can one know what some other people experience, making truth completely incommunicable and subjective. 4. Since truth c...

Hi Astus, I'm hoping that this clip from his book will answer your questions. :smile: Says the same thing as the short quote. 1. Those who believe that their truth is the real truth are wrong. 2. The truth is universal. 3. The universal truth is what Tolle thinks is the truth. 4. Tolle's truth is s...

Re: Eckhart Tolle on christmas

That's a good motivation. Whose suffering? The main question I put to the board (I don't mean to put lowlydog on the spot here) is still open: how does Tolle teach the motivation to practice? Is there anything like a bodhisattva's intention in Tolle's doctrine? There is suffering. When the wisdom o...
