Stillness Speaks by Eckhart Tolle: Ch. 1 "Silence and Stillness"

Join us Sat. December  15, 1-3pm at Sunset Park Church, 1515 Maple st., in Santa Monica (free parking in church lot) as we delve deeply into Chapter 1, "Silence & Stillness," of Eckhart Tolle's book, Stillness Speaks.

We also do a short, relaxing, silent meditation at the beginning as well as engage in lively dialogue. Come, participate and get your questions answered so that confusion becomes clarity, and with clarity comes the Freedom that you have always been, but was obscured by the mind's thoughts/beliefs.

"Wisdom comes with the ability to be still. Just look and just listen." -Eckhart Tolle

    Beautiful afternoon of seeing the dream as a dream and experiencing the peace and freedom one feels upon seeing this clearly. Remember, everything appears in the dream including your body. And the twist is that it's ALL coming from you! The pain is in YOU, not "out there in the world," in the form of repressed guilt. It's unconscious guilt which is why we are already checkmated before we have even started the game when we live from/as ego.

    Our primal fear, even though the ego doesn't want to admit it to itself, is that it somehow turned its back on god and honestly believes it's separate from god. That it is the doer!! But the whole thing is a fallacy because real separation is not possible. The separation never happened. God never went anywhere! We just became mesmerized by the dream. All "this" is the meaningless reflection of an egoic mind run amok. Now pass the popcorn and keep smiling! :)

    I enjoyed the readings and sharing by people. I would like more time spent on Eckhart Tolle's teachings and on stillness.
