#35 Mental Noise?

08 March, 2019Podcasts, News

Mental Noise? How  do  we  reach  a  shift  in  consciousness  within ourselves ? What  does  it  take  for  this  to  occur ? Is  it  an  external  event  or  an  internal  event ? What  does  finding  enlightenment  for  yourself  have  in  common  with  the  birth  of  the  universe  and  the  possibility  of  there  being  life  on  other  planets ? Both  are  rare  events.

Drawing  an  analogy  between  what  it  takes  to  create  planetary  life  forms  and  what  it  takes  to  reach  enlightenment  for  ourselves, we  take  a  journey  through  the  Fermi  Paradox, the  Boltzmann  Brain  Theory, cataclysmic  events  and  Eckhart  Tolle’s  book  “The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment “ – to  try  and  answer  some  of  these  questions.

Quotes : 

“Some  changes  look  negative  on  the  surface  but  you  will  soon  realise  that  space  is  being  created  in  your  life  for  something  new  to  emerge.” – Eckhart  Tolle.

“To  know  yourself  as  the  Being  underneath  the  thinker, the  stillness  underneath  the  mental  noise, the  love  and  joy  underneath  the  pain  is  freedom, salvation, enlightenment” – Eckhart  Tolle.

I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I enjoyed the discussion.

Stories of Recovery

  • The encouragement, love and support from the team at Crossroads allowed me to eventually see that I was worth something - that my life could be turned around and that I could accomplish the things that had long been a forgotten dream.

  • On the last day of my stint at Crossroads I could only express gratitude towards all who works there. A wise councillor once commented on my question when one is ready for rehab by explaining that when one is ready for rehab, rehab is ready for you.

  • I was lost and my soul was broken until I ended up at Crossroads and was introduced to the Twelve Steps. With the help of their excellent staff and amazing support I have recently been clean for 18 months, I could not have done it without them!
