We did a web cast!
Wow, what a weekend! There were from 55 to 80 people on line and 25 people came to the house for all or half of the broadcasts. I really got to know Scott Kiloby, as we made 3 1/2 hours of other recordings, (not included on the broadcasts).
I think these extra recodings were stunning, breakthrough dialogs. (Scott is well known for his "Kilologs" anyway, and I can't wait to share these with you.) Scptt's e-book, Living Realization has been updated, and now it is best to go to his web site to get the latest version.
Our big thanks to Scott for offering his personal interaction with our Reading Club, and giving us a beautiful live experience on the 21st of March.
Several topics will be opened in this "thread" to receive your questions. Please write them in the correct "slot" as replies, and please do not open any separate topics. (Let's make this operation very organized in this beautiful forum space.) Then Scott will paste the questions in a new post with his answers. After that, you can again comment and ask more clarification on each of his new "answer posts".
We will divide the book roughly into 4 parts, and consider them over 4 weeks. The first answers will come toward the end of this week, allowing more people to get into the reading. The dates will be approximately Feb 15th to March 15th whereafter on March 21st Scott with be in Chicago for a day long discussion (11:00 am until 4:30 pm). All are invited to the March 21st event, and it will be broadcast on an NNH web cast.
The division might run something like this:
- Introduction and Recognizing Present Awareness running through page 29
- Thoughts, Emotions Sensations, Sates and Experiences through page 50
- Core Story and Relationships through page 63, and
Although these question categories might be subject to change. (now we take questions from all of the book, by date of question, meaning no page limitation, you'll see.) Download, Read and Have Fun.
Here are some of Scott's comments from his NNH blog:
Here is a brief rundown of the way I point. First and foremost, for me, non-conceptual awareness (or what I call space) is the key to realization. It's the most direct "path" and it bypasses a lot of conceptual stuff that gets people "hung up." However, and this is a big however, you will also often hear me say that appearances (thoughts, emotions, states, sensations, experiences, people, etc) are not separate from awareness itself. This inseparability, for me, is important also because I spent some time with a very quiet mind, in a void.
Although it might sound nice, and it was, it was also detached and less than fully alive. For me, nonduality is very much about life happening now and enjoying every aspect of that. It's not just about reaching a state of no-thought and never thinking again. Although that may sound paradoxical, it really isn't. And I think if you listen to what I have to share it may resonate. Maybe not...we'll see. With that in mind, you will hear me share a lot from Living Realization. That site is a www.living-realization.blogspot.com. This way of pointing that I've developed has really resonated with people. Also, my site is www.kiloby.com. There is a lot of content there along with audio dialogues with lots of teachers. Enjoy.
