And for those of you who don't already know, that photo of Leo comes from an online article. If you haven't yet read it, find the article here, and an interview here

Re: Dear friends

If after some time I feel up to it again, I'll send out a new message to inform you all. Now, just change that "If" to a "When" and I'll be a very happy camper. [ok] Okay Leo, now you're getting my hopes up again... =P~ But seriously, that's really a great idea... just take a a break for a while, t...

Ahhh, thanks everyone. I'm just glad you all enjoyed what I had so much fun writing. [bigsmile] ... (and wow, I'm looking everywhere for that "genius" but hmm, haven't found her yet :-k)... But really, it was all right there in the list of thread titles, so I just wrote down what I saw. Obviously , ...

Awww ... very sorry to see it go... :cry: So will you leave the posts up (with no more posting), or will the whole forum just be taken down? And I'm guessing your home page and the newsletters will stay? ... hopefully? In any case, thanks for absolutely everything, Leo. You've been wonderfully gener...

Re: this forum is:

one place where we all get what we're looking for, one place where we don't get what we don't know or need, one place where the where is here & there and all-ways now, one place where awakening is always watching the nothing(s) that (n)ever happen(s)... this forum is heaven :lol: "This forum is:" a...

That's exactly why I recommended the book, not because it was the best pointer of non-duality, but because I thought it was the absolute best book to answer the question of "why the fear?" Aye. It is a good book if you're in that place where you have experienced the dream as a dream, but still have...

Ah yes, and also a very natural (and impersonal) CURIOSITY about all those impersonal (although very interesting) "ever was's." ;) :D [ok] ....there's curiously still the thinking and the raining ...

What are "emotions" really? Aren't they merely descriptions of reactions by the assumed self relating to its personal dream of separation? The self is hard wired to help the physical organism survive. No toombaru, I don't view emotions as "descriptions of reactions by the assumed self relating to i...

A certain amount of the fear body (self) must remain in order to function in the dream. When Ramana first lost his opacity, he doddered off to live in a cave and rats chewed his feet. toombaru I do wonder if some here see the remaining emotions as evidence to a remaining self? Emotions aren't gonna...

I have read a few books that have been very helpful regarding clarity, one of the best I have to say was Leo's - and I am not just saying that cause I'm on his forum, lol! But with Suzanne's book I am hoping to see how it was for her when the awakening happened so spontaneously and how she dealt wi...

Re: Strange experience

Why this fear? Ah yes, the "fear" factor again... One book that might help explain is Collision with the Infinite by Suzanne Segal. Love Interesting, I've tried to get hold of that one but it's out of print and the second hand ones sell at totally ridiculous prices on Amazon Marketplace! :D Oh wow,...
