Using Spirituality As Another Escape From Life

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 13 May, 2017 James: Realising what it is that you truly are, and that life itself isn’t separate from that, that you are being life, that You, capital Y, or whatever else you want to call ‘it’ – Awareness, Presence, whatever – is actually being life itself, can be a real “Wow!” recognition. But even so, for most of us, all the psychological suffering that’s been going on for a lifetime will still carry on. I had a real wake-up call once. I was hearing someone praying – praying for all the people…

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: I like sitting up here with you James and there’s sort of a taste for it somewhere, and then there’s a frustration at it too. James: Tell me about the frustration. Q: I can’t f****ng get it! James: How’s that frustration showing up. Try and get wise to the body now. “I can’t f****ng get it.” How is that showing up physically? Q: I suppose now immediately it comes back as a sadness here. (points to the chest) James: Great.

The difference between Freedom and Self-realisation

Gratitude is the flavour of You

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: Hearing you say “Thank You” has reminded me of what I’m constantly curious about, which is gratitude. I’m very curious about where it comes from, and where it goes to. Particularly where it goes to. Because I don’t really know. And sometimes I’m really aware of it being a bargaining tool. Sometimes it just arises out of nowhere and just floods and fills and I go, “Where did you come from? And where are you going?” (Silent connecting) James: For me, as this starts to open up and…
