⁣Be comfortable not knowing, be present. In this teaching, Eckhart explains the true concept of not knowing and why. When you let go of your concepts and knowledge, you can truly see the beauty of things.


Eckhart Tolle is widely recognized as one of the most inspiring and visionary spiritual teachers in the world today. With his international bestsellers, The Power of Now and A New Earth—translated into 52 languages—he has introduced millions to the joy and freedom of living life in the present moment. The New York Times has described him as “the most popular spiritual author in the United States”, and in 2011, Watkins Review named him “the most spiritually influential person in the world”.


Eckhart’s profound, yet simple teachings have helped countless people around the globe experience a state of vibrantly alive inner peace in their daily lives. His teachings focus on the significance and power of Presence, the awakened state of consciousness, which transcends ego and discursive thinking. Eckhart sees this awakening as the essential next step in human evolution.

⁣This is a short story about the early life stage of Ram Bahadur Bomjon - called Incarnation of Lord Buddha.
In Nepal, five hours from Katmandou, thousands of people, irrespective of wich caste they belong to goes each day on a pilgrimage, on foot or on cart. There, in the middle of the forest, they come to meditate and pray in front of a 16 year old boy. 24 hours a day, this young man sits in the hollow of a tree, in full meditation.


He does not move, he does not eat, he does not drink. He remains sitted quiet, breathes very little, very gently and does not need anything. For the believers, he is the reincarnation of Buddha! Miracle or not? We followed the traces of this man that all Nepali already call Little Bouddha.


WIKI Note
Ram Bahadur Bomjon (Sanskrit: राम बहादुर बम्जन) born c. 1990, sometimes spelled Bomjan, Banjan, or Bamjan), previously known as Palden Dorje (his monastic name) is a controversial ascetic from Ratanapuri, Bara district, Nepal who gained widespread attention and media popularity because of perceived semblances to Gautama Buddha, leading to claims that he is a reincarnation of Gautama Buddha.
In May, 2005, the 15 year old Bomjon left his home near the Indian border after a dream in which a god appeared to him and told him to do so, and sat amongst the roots of a pipal tree to meditate. Claims suggest that for 10 months he rarely spoke, drank, ate, or even moved. Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people visited the site to see the boy motionless for hours, days or as rumoured even months, or came in devotion to the possibility of an important spiritual event occurring. As a result of some of these claims, Bomjon's followers believe he is an incarnation of the historical Buddha, Gautama. Bomjon has rejected any such comparisons, saying "Tell the people not to call me a Buddha. I don't have the Buddha's energy currently. I am at the level of a rinpoche." Mahiswor Raj Bajracharya, the president of the Nepal Buddhist Council, has stated likewise: "We do not believe he is Buddha. He does not have Buddha's qualities".


Then, on 11 March 2006 he went missing. On 19 March 2006 Bed Bahadur Lama of the Om Namo Buddha Tapaswi Sewa Samiti (ONBTSS) told reporters that they had seen him in Bara District and that they had spoken to him for half-an-hour, during which Bomjon reportedly assured that he would return in six years.


He was again seen in August 2007, preaching to crowds in Nepal’s Hallori jungle, around 100 miles south of Kathmandu.
Controversies
Bomjon's followers have claimed that Bomjon meditates for months without eating or sleeping.


In 2010, Bomjon was investigated for attacking a group of 17 villagers. Bomjon claimed that they were intentionally disturbing his meditation. However, the villagers said they were just looking for vegetables. Bomjon claimed to have taken "minor action" against them with just his hands after they had "tried to manhandle" him, and stopped as soon as they apologized. However, the victims claim that for three hours he struck them on their head and back with an axe handle, resulting in serious injury of one of the victims. Bomjon refused to attend any potential trial, stating, "Do you think a meditating sage will go to the court to hear a case? I took action against them as per the divine law".


In 2012 Nepal Police announced that they had rescued a Slovak woman from Bomjon's followers, but other reports claimed that she had been voluntarily released after media coverage of the kidnapping. Newsweek reported she had been taken from a hotel by two of Bomjon's men riding on a motorcycle and kept tied to a tree for three months and accused of practicing witchcraft in order to disturb the Boy’s meditation. However another report claimed she had been kidnapped from a monastery. When she was released she had a broken arm. A week after her release, Bomjon's siblings accused him of holding his brothers captive overnight, and beating his brothers and his sister. Followers of Bomjon also assaulted five journalists and destroyed their cameras after they had recorded one of Bomjon's sermons.
In September 2018, Bomjon was accused of raping an 18 year old nun repeatedly for nearly 2 years. During a press conference organized by women's rights groups, the nun also accused his wife of trying to keep the abuse hidden so as not to "attract attacks" on their religion. Supporters of Bomjon claim that the nun was in fact involved in theft, and had been ejected from the monastery.


An investigation was opened in January of 2019 after complaints from family members that four devotees had gone missing from several of Bomjon's ashrams. In the same month, police raided one of Bomjon's ashrams in Nepal, but he was not found. On February 6th, 2020, the Sarlahi District Court issued an arrest warrant against Bomjon. The following day, police raided another one of his ashrams, but Bomjon again was not found. However, police did arrest one of his disciples, Gyan Bahadur Bomjan.

⁣If you understand the consequences of Virtual Reality, your life can improve positively!
Thomas W Campbell, physicist and author of My Big TOE, a theory of everything, delivers this positive message for you for 2018.

2018 is the 20th anniversary of his conclusion that we are living in a Virtual Reality.
Virtual Reality makes profound statements of our purpose and mission here in this reality.
Virtual Reality supports Consciousness as fundamental. In a Virtual Reality, you as Consciousness are immortal. This Virtual Reality exists for your evolution and growth.
Virtual Reality supports spirituality and the existence of a higher aware intelligence.
Virtual reality solves the mysteries of physics. This short video clip is for sharing and raising awareness for Tom's physics experiments.

These experiments will, if the results are as Tom predicts, furnish further evidence that we are living in a Virtual Reality.

⁣Mary Gray was born in Paris in 1886.
She knew many of the outstanding leaders of thought in Europe and America. She was a member of the Theosophical Society.

What the book is about?
This book was written in 1925 and shows why spiritual growth is sometimes gained through the darkest times in our lives.


Sometimes we must just accept the pain of living along with the joys in our lives and know they both come from God and make us stronger.
Life is a journey, a struggle at times but worth every minute and I am thankful for the people that help us through it.

The Premise
Watts began the lecture noting that the extension of the network by electronics may abolish individual privacy. During the lecture, he made some astonishing predictions about the world we live in today.

The Approximate Time and Place
Watts died in 1973, it is safe to say that the lecture that this information was summarized from was delivered to a group of people, in the afternoon sometime in the late ‘60s or early ’70s near a military base. The author is vague about the year but specific on the time of day only because of clues heard in the recording. At the beginning of the talk Watts states that during a lecture that morning the subject of privacy had come up and he was going to address it now. In the middle of the lecture, a jet is heard to roar overhead. Followed by silence then Watts exclaims, “Complete with bombs!”

The Predictions
Watts with the help of some futurist and possibly advertising from Bell Telephone Watts predicted a few familiar devices we use every day and some still futuristic devices and processes. Some predictions were very accurate, some are still waiting for the right time to appear.

Your Information is Out There
Even in the 1960s insurance agencies, credit agencies, law enforcement, and all manner of the establishment were collecting information on people and reducing the information into computer data. Watts warned that an enormous amount of information can be instantly known. At the time that progress was made using keypunch operators and very little networking. Watts never imagined the information we would freely divulge instantenously today.

Desk Top Computers
Watts described the desktop pretty accurately as a box on your desk with a TV screen and a dial. With this, you could send a code to the Library of Congress and Read any Book ever written. If he added a typewriter to the equation he would have had everything correct.

Mobile Telephones
Alan Watts just about nailed this, here are his words:
“…they project that not many years hence the ordinary telephone will disappear and every individual will carry it around with him a thing about the size of the old pocket watches one side of it will be a TV screen and a speaker the other side of it will be a set of buttons over which you just place your finger to activate them you will be able to dial world information who will give you the number of any given individual if he doesn’t answer he’s dead…”

Holograms or Zoom Meetings
Watts had great hope for perfect holograms that he described as TV with laser beams. He noted that if reproduction could become technically perfect, that will be a new kind of confusion.
“We can easily take this a step further when we develop a form of electronic communication such that you don’t even need to take a plane you want to see supposing I want to see my father in England we both have these laser beam TV jobs and just like that I can recreate in front of him myself and my exact environment everything around just if he was sitting in the room and I can do that with his set on the other end so that eventually we don’t need to take the plane…”

Replacement Organs
Plastic was the future in the 1960s according to the movie, The Graduate, and Watts thought this would be the answer to providing new organs as the old ones wore out.
If everything is replaced are you the same individual?

Not a Fan of Uber Eats
Watts noted:
“…you can conceive as some science fiction writers have what seems to us a rather appalling situation where you never never need to leave the place
where you’re sitting all food supplies and everything is automatically
delivered you just dial what you want.”
He was probably thinking more of something approximating food arriving through a tube rather than a mildly ‌warm dish from your favorite restaurant arriving by car.

More than 3 Channels
Watts discusses that with electronic communications everyone sees the same thing on NBC and ABC news at 6:00 PM. He called this temporary, the more we develop microelectronic machinery, the greater discrimination on the dial. As technology becomes more perfect you can get an enormous number of stations. With a videotape machine costing $6,000 and a Sony television camera costing $250, you can do a tv show with only one technician. The average television show produced in a studio takes 14 technicians. There can be an increasing variety of the type of material presented.

The Real Message
Alan Watts was not a futurist, he was a philosopher who captured audiences on the West Coast with Eastern Thought through writings, radio, public television, and lectures. His recorded talks before audiences and broadcasts have survived and have found new life on YouTube.
In the 55 minute lecture, Watts uses predictions to support his thoughts on the nature of privacy and humanity.

Pros and Cons Regarding the Loss of Privacy
Pro: how great to have nothing to hide and to give up all worries of ownership. No worry about possessions, no worries about dirty little secrets.
Con: the more we do this with everyone thinking the same thing and owning nothing, then everyone becomes the same. It is the phenomena of each city looking just like the other with the same stores and restaurants.

Technology as an Extension of Humanity
Just as the wheel and all forms of technological transportation are extensions of the human ability to move. The radio, telephone, television and the computer is an extension of the human nervous system.

The Human as a Pattern
An old-established university will retain the same name through the decades even though the buildings, grounds, and people change. The pattern retains an identifiable continuity. A person is the same, changing throughout the years, but the soul remains the same, only the bodily expression keeps changing. “We are electronic echoes of ourselves being perpetuated through the ages.”
We will come to the astonishing conclusion that that is what we already are. We are the most remarkable electronic patterns from the standpoint of physics

The Etheralization of Humans
…Every need is eventually supplied through electronic stimulation until you finally have to get rid of the black box, the electronic gadget, you have become Etherealized. By then all privacy is gone, your thoughts are easily read. Humanity is converted to an anthill, this is to be dreaded.

Are Your Thoughts Really Your Own?
In your head lives thoughts that are not yours because you think in the English language and that was given to you by other people along with the prejudices that are inherent. You are in the sphere of public influences. Think of the tone of your thoughts and you will hear the tone of others that have told you those things. Myriads of voices and influences work on you even when you are alone. So you are not as private as you think you are. You influence others as well as they influence you, so your voice lives in the heads of other people. We are the sum total of all of society, and the reactions of people to you. You know who you are in terms of your relations with others.

Enjoy the View
He ends with a description of how living a plugged-in existence is not that different from an old Italian woman enjoying watching life flow by on the street below. There is something fundamentally good about that. but you see that that sort of thing of watching an ever-varying panorama of life is not completely excluded by electronic technology.
