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.
