Just a remark, if you translate nicht dualitaet, from german back into
english it would be no duality meaning no duality versus nonduality meaning
no's duality, making it more sound as if there was no duality
haha, it seems those germans are a little behind in their language
Maybe we should teach them english.
Another such example is "nowhere"
in english being the compose of "now" and "here"
where in german you'd say nirgendwo as translates to "nowherewhere"
or composed of the words "now" "here" "where" what a good question :-)
They must be crazy those germans.
Greg and anyone else who can assist: I received a letter from someone who saw the following on the NDS website and wants to know more about Leonard Jacobson. He's aware of Jacobson's website at <http://www.leonardjacobson.com>. If anyone can assist, let me know and I'll give you his email address. Thank you. Jerry LEONARD JACOBSON, by Greg Goode I saw Leonard Jacobson about 3 years ago. He teaches a sort of conglomeration of psychological freedom, encounter-group methodology, delicately peppered with Christian terminology. He also teaches with the assistance of his wife, a clairvoyant. Jimmy, a friend of mine, was actually helped to release an aversion to using and hearing the word "God." In the session that I saw, Jimmy laughed and cried, getting angry at God until Leonard's wife said that Jimmy was actually an Old Testament prophet who was martyred for God, but became resentful of the fact that God let him die. When the present (1996) Jimmy heard this, he said, "Yes, yes, yes!!!" And from then on has had no problem with the God-concept or the God word.
LJ comes around New York about once a year, usually in Long Island. But
that is probably on the website. If your correspondent is looking for
facts, itineraries, etc., I don't have any info. But if it's a different
kind of information, perhaps I can help.
