  4. A good foundation in the basics is helpful. First learn to observe the conditioned thinking (ego), and the emotional reactions (pain body), as they happen; and experience being present in the now moment. Eckhart Tolle's books, "The Power of Now", and "A New Earth" work well for many people, and they are easy to get from any library. Watching him on DVD enhances the possibility of presence arising, especially the retreat series, which might also be found at some libraries. You can also download these off his web site (for a fee), or purchase them outright. Some suggestions: "Touching the Eternal" the India Retreat "Freedom from the World" the Costa Rica Retreat "The Art of Presence" Retreat For more information:

  8. From active visualization to passive observation

    And for me as well, xuesheng.... I see that perhaps both visualizing, and observing, are one....both simply "portals / doorways / gateways" into pure awareness....not for staying in, but for passing through. Which reminds me now of the Heart Sutra.... Gate gate - Gone gone Paragate - Gone beyond Parasamgate - Gone completely beyond Bodhi Svaha - Praise to awakening Excellent topic, Brian, thanks for sharing your shift.... Peace, Carol

I gave him my heart and soul, my entire attention and the whole of my spare time (I had to work to keep my family alive)....."
