Some Words to Ponder, Part 2

     More wisdom from Eckhart Tolle:

     Dogmas -- religious, political, scientific -- arise out of the erroneous belief that thought can encapsulate reality or the truth.  Dogmas are collective conceptual prisons.  And the strange thing is that people love their prison cells because they give them a sense of security and a false sense of "I know."
     Nothing has inflicted more suffering on humanity than its dogmas.  It is true that every dogma crumbles sooner or later, because reality will eventually disclose its falseness; however, unless the basic delusion of it is seen for what it is, it will be replaced by others.
     What is this basic delusion?  Identification with thought.

Summer is Half Over!

     Can you believe that summer is half over?  That means that you have less than half a summer in which to enjoy a great book.  Why not try The Gemini Bond?  It deals with Twin Souls in a fast-paced thriller.  Order or download your copy today!

Some Words to Ponder

     From the May issue of The Sun (OK, so I'm a little behind on my reading) are some wonderful quotes from Eckhart Tolle.  Enjoy.

The human condition:  lost in thought.
The stream of thinking has enormous momentum that can easily drag you along with it.  Every thought pretends that it matters so much.  It wants to draw your attention in completely.
Here is a new spiritual practice for you:  don't take your thoughts too seriously.
Spiritual awakening is awakening from the dream of thought.
The realm of consciousness is much vaster than thought can grasp.  When you no longer believe everything you think, you step out of thought and see clearly that the thinker is not who you are.

Happy Independence Day!

May you celebrate freedom from want.
May you celebrate freedom from overwhelming desires.
May you celebrate freedom from unproductive thinking and unhealthy habits.
May you celebrate the freedom to be completely  and uniquely you.
Happy Independence Day.
