Just thought I'd share a video I found at a Sikh blog site:

http://www.mapleleafsikh.com/2010/04/what-happens-at-time-of-death.html

I thought it was pretty interesting and it's very obvious that he's influenced by the mystic elements of the different religions.

Enjoy!

No worries brother, glad you enjoyed it!

I read one of his books, was really mind blowing. I guess I'm a bit of a fan. His conceptualisation of the human mind is spot on IMHO.

Yeah I think I will definitely have to keep a look out for the stuff he's written. I'd never heard of him prior to that video, but you're totally right about what he says about the mind.

Tolle reasons that if by the end of your life, you are still firmly attached to your form (body), your soul will want to experience the body form once again, and you will be reincarnated as a new life form. However, if in this life you have become self-realized and, as a result, unattached to your form, then no need to return to a form. This opens up the opportunity to merge with the global consciousness or God.

Bhagat Trilochan ji saying same thing.

Is this some sort of Brahm giani then?

So when you listen to a thought. you a.re aware not only of

the thought but also of yourself as the witness of the thought.

A new dimension of consciousness has come in. As you listen

to the thought, you feel a conscious presence - your

deeper self - behind or underneath the thought, as it were.

The thought then loses its power over you and quickly subsides,

because you are no longer energizing the mind

through identification with it. Thls is the beginning of the

end of involuntary and compulsive thinking.

When a thought subsides, you experience a discontinuity in

the mental stream - a gap of "no-mind." At first, the gaps

will be short, a few seconds perhaps, but gradually ithey will

become longer. When these gaps occur, you feel a certain

stillness and peace inside you. This is the beginning of your

natural state of felt oneness with Being, which is usually

obscured by the mind. With practice, the sense of stillness

and pea.ce will deepen. In fact, there is no end to its depth.

You will also feel a subtle emanation of joy arising from deep

within: the joy of Being ..

Is he talking about ਅਨੰਦ?

I don't think it is anand he is talking about myself. I think he is describing the stage of having subdued errant thought waves in the conscious and the 'stillness' that arises when we first do this. (Personally speaking I had experience of this during my early stages of meditation but seem to have regressed somewhat in this respect now?)

We are so used to these thoughts popping in and out of our mind that when we first manage to diminish them, the experience is very profound, even if it only lasts for a few seconds.

Right now I still find thoughts popping into my head when trying to 'simar'. Trying all this really brings home how sensitive the mind really is, it is outright mercurial in this respect. When I check the type of thoughts that invade these days I realise that often they stem from deep fears, upsets etc. So these things echo around in us and doing simran does actually help identify and attenuate them.

I think the anand comes after we have managed to master the subduing the mind with its tendency to throw things into your consciousness. I've only had fleeting experiences of this. I think when you manage to subdue thoughts in this way for a while and control your focus, new things happen to you, one being anand?
