OK Dallas sounds like Eckhart had the experience, I know his work; "In the Now"-good stuff. So are you saying "yes" or "no"-to having experienced this type of awakening, or that you think Eckhart did and to support me your sharing Eckharts experience vicariously, or that I need to hear what you need to hear? I'm feeling distracted, but I believe there was an intent on conveying a message in there, I am un-able to decipher it just yet
From 12X12 pg.106-"When a man or women HAS an awakening (implies more of), the most important meaning of it is that he has now become able to do , feel, AND believe that which he could not do before on his unaided strength and resources alone. He has been granted a gift which amounts to a NEW STATE OF CONCIOUSNESS AND BEING, so we will have, more of, new states of conciousness-this isn't saying any thing about alcohol, or alcoholism-it's refering to us, personally, and spiritually-if we continually seek to grow and become,as human beings,the higher levels of awarenesses we will. So Eckhart was on the mark- would anyone else like to share their experience, you've had, with the type of awakening we're discussing.
