One of the most profound concepts I've learned from Tolle's works is that I have an identity...that is to say, a "self" that transcends both my physical existence and my thoughts. When all that I am physically is gone away, I... will..still...exist!
Great and lively discussion about the concept of "Shenpa" or the "stickiness" of attachments. Listened to the last in Pema Chodron's CD series "Getting Unstuck". Next week we'll be starting "Ask and it is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Looking forward to exploring this work, which presents the teachings of the "nonphysical entity Abraham". We expect, given our normal progress, to be on this book for the next six months or so. Should be an interesting read and visit to the spiritual pathway of the "law of attraction" philosophy. http://www.amazon.com/Ask-It-Is-Given-Learning/dp/1401904599.
