The overarching theme of the Living Room is ” How to live a life based on Truth”
For nearly 6 months I have been drawn to quietly observe the current world events by focusing on the category: The World we live in Now. At first I thought it was quite curious that I felt moved to shift my attention from my usual subject of holistic health and healing, to go deeper into evolving patters concerning global systems, institutions and structure. Now I realise it has helped me to not only create a coherent picture of the most important trends and dynamics and how they are related, but also reveal their inevitable and surprisingly profound dissolution. This dynamic of moving away from things ” tried and trusted” without fear of the unknown, is reflected in a sub-category called: Breaking the Mould.
Today I have a sense I would like to start a new category to explore an entirely new ways of doing things. Born out of a need, a necessity, an instinct, a spark of genius or even sheer desperation or chaos – where are the pioneers of a New Earth, who are being pulled to go beyond the old beliefs, limitations and “order of things” to create something completely fresh and new, following nothing else but their inner sense that they just have to.
This new category is called : Make New from Old.

Just got back last night……and will have lots to share!
What an experience….hard to put into words!
There were between 4 and 5 hundred people. Out of that I only ran in to maybe 3 or 4 that actually ever posted on the forum. So thats’s a surprise to me, of course there are many more ‘silent member’s’ that ‘read only’ category, how many ….who knows? And then the rest who never set foot on the forum at all, but join for the talks/resources.
In Ultimate Truth there are no Buddhas and no demons;
One enters here the Realm where Dharma is exhausted.
Among all Vehicles, this ultimate teaching
Is found only in the Tantras.
It says in the Highest Division of the Tantra:
“When the various elements gather in the Nadis,
One sees the demon-forms appear.
If one knows not that they are but mind-created
Visions, and deems them to be real,
One is indeed most foolish and most stupid.”
