Everyday we wake up thinking of thoughts in our minds and sometimes these thoughts of ours are not positive and can weight us down from performing our daily tasks or achieving our daily goals. It…Continue
I am a bit old-school; when I see hype, I see people asking for money. But, especially since I don't see any major "grand" comment here on his great insights??
I have just seen it before....
Hopefully, I am way off-base. :)
The book was The Power of Now. It's not new. A number of years back I watched the webcast that he did with Oprah through her show of A New Earth. That format was interesting because people Skyped in from all over the world to ask him questions and have a dialogue with him about things in the book.
I run into those links on the FV group. I'll grab one next time I get one.!
I've read some good quotes from Tolle, haven't seen anything about a movie though.. any links? How was the book Deb?
on Eckhart Tolle -
I have seen a lot of hype....
I think he is trying to do a movie. I am not impressed with him. Rather agree with you though. He comes across rather like a fad
(maybe a similar effect like "The Secret" - New Thought revised - old stuff).
The Spock vide is really, really great!
OK. One more thing for a Monday morning...
The Old Spock vs. the New Spock
Today I'm at work, as usual. It is Monday after all. I've been reading a book, read a lot of it over the weekend, trying to get it finished before next Saturday for a book club meeting. The book is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. Honestly, I didn't find the book very interesting until about 80 pages in, but then it's not new material for me, but I can see that for the general population it might be new material, a new way to look at things, and perhaps for some it might be helpful. One thing is interesting, though. I like seeing how different people explain essentially the same things. That's important because people are so different. Some will understand one kind of explanation, but be completely baffled or turned off by another approach. So. From that point of view, the book is a good thing.
I really don't like politics here, but it is a part of Humanity that seems to be a hindrance to Brotherhood (and Sisterhood is always included in that term on this site).
I saw the following:
According to the US Code (18 U.S.C. § 2384 ), seditious conspiracy is a crime under United States law. The law states in part that,
“If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to… prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States… they shall each be fined or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”
There is a petition going around to ask the government to apply this to certain members of congress who organized a plot solely to shut our Government down. It took me a day to think about the ramifications if I signed it... I am too old to care.
Petition site available on request.
I almost put up a post putting things in perspective with GNP...
It gets too confusing. I'll have to track down the recent info from the Congressional Budget office. It is not that bad.. sounds impressive, but it is a bit deceptive.
