James from Perth and Patrick from Dallas joined me over Skype yesterday for a chat about their advaita experience. We talk a little about Eckhart Tolle and Wei Wu Wei.

    Great show guys, I like this format.

  2. tazzy says:

    Luv the show Cam,James,Patrick.A comment on what was said about Tolle’s popularity He has a lot more conceptual stuff in his work,e.g. “The pain body” Which is a “hook” for minds to hold on with.It gives people who are completely unaware of nonduality an “in” so to speak as the more “non conceptual” approaches eg. Tony Parsons would just leave your average “man on the street” cold as it is just too absract.So it is not so surprising that he has a broad appeal.He is also quit funny and “safe” no worries about him saying something incendiary on Oprah where as Parsons has some jokes that would never make it to air anywhere e.g. the catholic preist joke he tells.There is nothig right or wrong with any ot these approaches,it’s just as Bob would say,”That’s just the way the energy is forming and patterning’.Cheers TAZZY.

  6. Gareth says:

    Really interesting show.

  7. daniel says:

  8. Cameron Reilly says:

    Daniel, I am not the body so… I don’t sleep. Or eat.

    Now… I’ve got a bridge in really good condition that you might like…

  9. daniel says:

    OK how many beads is this going to cost me,not the same but sort of. The more I see what you’re doing ,the more I appreciate it, nice office veiw, I thought you assies were having a water crisies?

  10. Jay says:

    Here’s something that should interest yall. I’m looking at you, Cam. It’s the lecture by neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor, from this year’s TED talks, about how she studied her own stroke (blood clot in the brain) as it was happening, and found nirvana in the right hemisphere. It gets intense.

    Also check out the exchange in the comments… it’s the old “we are genetic machines and accidents of chance” versus “we are spiritual beings at home in the universe” debate.

    Pretty left brain/right brain if you think about it.

    Good show, by the way. It’s great to see the Advaita Show still puttering about after all these episodes. Keep twisting that format, Cam! It was great to hear from these two gentlemen.

  11. Max says:

    Hey guys! Been a while since I left a message on the board, so I thought I’d chip in. Hey tazzy, what about the Tony Parsons jokes? If anyone knows some Tony Parsons jokes, I’d love to hear them. I think it’s a really genuinely funny subject about what a mental box we’re in, and we can never get out! Whatever, anything you say can easily just be negated. It’s like how someone said that Sailor Bob doesn’t really deal with the questions of life, but the questions are all bullshit!
    Now it’s about time for a new show guys, I’m looking forward to it. When are you guys gonna do a show about psychedelics and the nonduality trip? You briefly touched on the subject once with Bob, but I think you could really go places with it.

    Love your work, blessed be

  12. patrick says:

    a couple comments regarding death were posted. perhaps this will clarify. prior to the seattle experience, there was a seeking of death. after the experience, there is the realization that death does not exist except in the narrowly-defined realm of mind-body and to be more “accurate”, mind only, since the body cannot have the concept of death. it simply ceases to function at such time as it is appropriate. the seeing is that “death” has taken place, which is the cessation of the mental construct of “me”.
