Tolle is a master at stillness...as many great Eastern mystics and yogis were and are...Yet, since there are many ways to enlightenment...why can't playing with inner dialog consciously, also be one?
And there are so many great ways to play with it....Claire
and Katherine, creators of the Feminine Power Course, suggest miserable
thoughts are often calls from the inner child, a more vulnerable part of
ourself....We can become the adult witness and with real compassion,
ask that part of ourselves what is upsetting it and what it
needs......And then let it know what we can and will do to assist the
childlike needs and feeling part of out selves, to feel safe, knowing
things that scare it will be taken care of...in an adult manner. This
is a woman's way....to care for her young...tender self....to hear the
cries of the soul in the dark...and bring it home.
says all voices in our head, spouting opinions and feelings and such,
represent some aspect of our, and all person hood...to which when we we
listen with empathy, brings unity. This is used with who those who have
split or splintered personalities, to help them integrate them
all....Out of that we learn to hearing our inner selves as well as those out side
of ourself as well. We recognize us in them and them is us...all of which is now more easy to integrate...no longer a part of our
splintered or illusory of separate nature.
I liken it the
chopping of wood, carrying water part of dealing with our
mind....manually bringing the pieces back together ...I know, we were

When do you let some one just mess up...and when do just step in and put a food down? I have been in several situations with my family where they where making decisions that I could see would be very problematic in the long run for all involved. I said say what I saw, but did try not force my approach...and now I am the cleaner upper of the messes. As I write it seems obvious....let them deal the consequences...but it means leaving a 94 year old mom on her own....and a cancer patient husband to his own (after treatment of course). I saw these problems coming and suggested we work to advert them...and they did not..Now I am care taking them and without any money for any of us ...so it is tremendously difficult. Compassion and martyrdom dome come to mind.

How much can you change?
How much do you want to change?
How much do you need to change?
What do you want change about yourself, about your situation
What changes are coming down the pike fo, you, the country the world?
Phew I think I will go sleep on it...
I am concerned for all the worlds ecosystems. But I can not see how we can address the pressure they face without addressing population pressure. And I can not see how we can address population pressure without addressing women's emancipation in all the 2nd and 3rd wold countries. The world's future is also contingent on what women know and have power to control. Men have to understand how sex affects their ability to fee their families. Men also have to learn to find a place out side of power and money plays. Fighting corruption is not enough.

Unidentified programs running in the back ground cause havoc on your computer. They slow the operating system down and can jam up the works, even leading to the complete stoving up of the computer. The human brain also has many unidentified programs running. These were put into the short and long term memory functions by events we experienced via our senses. Then the human mind adds meaning to these events. It is biological to assess situations as helpful or threatening. But it is only human to make story around it. And a story might end up creating a belief about people, about ourselves or the nature of similar events. This story will run in the back ground, coloring many, and for some people, everything they experience and do. PTS is an example of this. So is the confidence, or lack of, we had instilled in ourselves as children. People can have many layers of these unwanted and often unrecognized programs sporadically or continually running in the back of their minds. Until they are brought fully into awareness as something that interferes with what is happening in the present, it will drain energy, creativity, and responsiveness from our ability to fully function in response to our circumstances. So like any geek knows, you got to go in there and see what is yucking up the system
