When you say “instantaneous, immediate, and out of nothing” you are still holding Being as an action, not as “is.” – Peter Ralston Newsletter

Peter, May I summarize: “being is instantaneous, immediate & out of nothing” without error as you see it? My current problem then is the continuity of being, but you say continuity is a self problem, eh? Thanks for The Book of Not Knowing and all the courses I took in our past. Namaste, Love, Mark Russell […]

I have always assumed that part of Cheng Hsin martial was to learn to act from not-self, to learn to surrender to what arises in each moment. (A question and response) – Peter Ralston Newsletter

Hi Peter, For a few years I have periodically wondered whether when you fought you fought from a place of self-mind or Consciousness. Or, to be more accurate I have always assumed that part of Cheng Hsin martial was to learn to act from not-self, to learn to surrender to what arises in each moment, to […]

I’m wondering whether it’s possible at all not to be attached to different things – Peter Ralston Newsletter

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Newsletter

Hello Peter, I think that somewhere in The Book of Not Knowing you wrote something about attachment.

Peter, At a loss here. I find that when I reach a bottom line I don’t know what to do with it. You write “can begin to disassociate these beliefs from reality.” I don’t know how to do that. How do I remove a core assumption that has been a major influence of my perception […]

You have presented a good outline for one of our main confusions with love, or any emotion for that matter – Peter Ralston Newsletter

Hello Peter,Somewhere, I do not know where, you mentioned something about “love;” it was either in one of your newsletters or in one of your books which I read – I have no idea where, so I didn’t even try to look for it. However, you said something like “If I told you what love really […]

Becoming Conscious Of The Truth And How You Live Your Life Are Two Different Things – Peter Ralston Newsletter

Peter, It is the “sensitivity” that you highlighted that I did not communicate but was my reason for asking this question. I know this sensitivity will continue to develop and I can imagine that one continues to see the world through a different set of eyes within this sensitivity. Feeling the suffering of others becomes […]
