namaste greetings, dear ben and jennie ...
it's my experience too ... that practice, when i sincerely embrace it, brings immediate peace.
but mostly now i'm replying to witness our minds joined ... as last night a friend and i were listening to and sharing about that very same idea.
i have that message on one of a two tape set of eckhart's ... called 'the workbook' ... which is the practice exercise excerpts taken/spoken directly from his book "the power of now." it's a treasure of mine and i listen to it often as it contains what i feel summarizes the main 'workable' teachings of the book.
perhaps you're aware of it already, but in case not, and for others interested, here is a site dedicated to extending his teachings ... you'll see it has excerpts, interviews, testemonies and a book review.
nice to be sharing with you both about our mutual interests ... i love you!
