a new earth

tolle.jpgGet ready for zen col overdrive. I’m reading eckart tolle’s new book. it’s illuminating. It is very helpful in understanding myself, my zany egoic devices. The main takeaway is that instead of getting hung up on what’s not … criticizing, getting mad at “the bad guys” or trying to change people who are unconsciously ruled by their pain, we should accept what is and move on. That which you resist persists. let go of hostilities, defenses, all the things that we use to make ourselves feel superior to others. We’re all one. He brought in a quote from Macbeth that I totally dig.

Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” William Shakespeare (Macbeth — Act V, Scene V).

    What a joke this man is. There is only one truth and that is the word of our sovern Lord. This guy is absolutly insane. I realize he makes money from people looking for a utopia life. I feel he inlightend me to more of my creator. The God of the universe, Jehovah.

    Col,

    Thank you for this site and for your sanity. One day everyone will understand the difference between projection and extension — a reactive mind and peace of mind. A mind that knows in Oneness there is nothing to defend.

    In Peace Profound, Joe
