    Hello all! Here's a link to a replay Eckart's meditation that was broadcast on Sunday:

    I like this guy! If we are trying to be holy, he would be correct, in that meditation as a means of achievement becomes a hiding-from-life mechanism, a beautiful repression. But, in meditation there is no goal, only practice. Like training-wheels for being off the cushion, we create a controlled 'cocoon' where we can try to learn techniques by rigorously testing them out (practicing them) without interruption. In this vid, Massaro is judging meditation in terms of reaching a goal and that is where his line of reasoning has failed. He uses the word 'self' as if it is something that exists - an axiom - as the central entity. We know, however, that self is instead a very useful illusion, ever-changing. He needs to read more Eckhart Tolle and join like-minded existence-explorers like our meet-up!

    This is a video clip of the guy I mentioned in the meeting, Bentinho Massaro. His focus is more on awareness. Whether the mind is in a quiet state or a chaotic state, it's more about awareness, to him. I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts on this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaWfcrA6ByY&feature=share&list=PLB7C25797BA6EE272

    The social anxiety I usually experience when meeting new groups of people - it dissipated quickly after introductions and meditation. I felt very welcome. The conversation really flowed and people shared stories and insights. There was a great flow to it. When nobody had anything to say, nobody said anything. And it was perfect. Just silence. Stillness. The format of the event, the way it worked -- it worked. When it was indicated that the meeting was concluding, I felt a little sadness. I can't wait to see everybody again.
