Re: What are we?

My apologies I didn't get back to you. I thought it might be best to have a break from it all. Trouble is, I find it very difficult to escape this. The whole no self thing is hard to disagree with. Now I am not disregarding the experiences people have in NDEs and OBEs - I simply don't know what they...

Re: What are we?

Hi again, I think, for now at least, I have gotten past that particular worry. I need to just not engage in trying to figure it out for a while. It might come back, I don't know. But thanks for your response and your persistence. As usual, I am hugely grateful. I am always going to be worried about ...

Re: What are we?

Glad I could help. Here's something from my world to consider. If I'm just a figment of your imagination, my congratulations to you on your incredible mind. You must be God then. There is after all a world of conscious experience over here that I engage in on a daily and ongoing basis. You should s...

Re: What are we?

Thanks for your quick response WW. As ever, it does help and I really appreciate it. I think I am good with what I am. I have no problems with who I am. I just accept it all. And I'm always happy to try and recognise when and where I can improve myself for for the benefit of all. I like to think I'm...

Re: What are we?

Thanks for the reply again. Sorry for the delayed response, I'm just in a bad place at the moment and have limited Internet access. Back in April I had a real mental breakdown. And since the nights have been drawing in here I'm starting to feel the same again. I'm scared to be honest. I've had OCD s...

Re: What are we?

WW- I hope we are the boss. I really do. But I do worry. Have you seen this? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-49907356 What does this say about thoughts being born out of the brain? I really do worry that we are just products of random brain activity. Or learned behaviours. Life really would lose i...

Re: What are we?

That's great to hear WW. We have had fairly limited new coverage of Dorian here in the UK but the devastation looks heartbreaking. I have a busy weekend and quite a lot of socialising to do, which I feel in two minds about. But I suppose getting out and about can only be a good thing - plenty of dis...

Re: What are we?

I appreciate that. I'm not ready to discount what you say totally. I also get that we live here in a world where anything is possible. Why do we have to be limited to what we think we know now? I love working with our students. In fact, I have been considering looking at working with children with l...

Re: What are we?

WW - Thank you for your post. I'd loving nothing more than to believe what you say 150%. However, from my experience, it's very difficult to see it. I watched one of the NDE documentaries that you posted on the subforum here, and I did actually find it very well done and convincing. I love the idea ...

Re: What are we?

Thanks Turiya. I understand what you are saying. But that doesn't seem to fit well with the NDE and OBE accounts that seem to suggest that individuals retain a sense of self in their next lives. Or am I missing something? Youre saying that people are like a temporary event. Are you really happy look...

Re: What are we?

Thanks for that WW. It's just a massively complex topic. And I seem to be questioning absolutely every bit of my existence. Where did X thought come from. Why do humans have souls? What about when we were cavemen, did we have souls then? Why humans now? Sure, it is incredible that I and we exist. I'...

Re: What are we?

Apologies for my delayed response. I seem to be getting caught up in all sorts of things at the moment. Turiya - Thank you for your post :) I can't seem to find it. I thought it might be this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRYVXDnKamU but I can't find that part where he speaks with a member of...

Re: What are we?

Thanks WW for your reply. I feel you've been a wonderful source of help and support recently. I look forward to your replies, I really do. The thing is, I do enjoy what is in front of me. I go out of my way to express love and be open minded. I like to throw myself into different experiences. I love...

Re: What are we?

Hi again, I don't want to sound like a numpty with my following questions, but it is just something that has been floating around in my head all day. I truly want the idea of a self, pulling the strings, in whatever form, be it as an independent human being, or a soul, to exist. The thought that we ...

Re: What are we?

Thanks for that guys, really appreciate it as always. I will take note and I will look to put it into practice. Apologies for the delayed response, Ive been on holiday and had very limited internet coverage. Still got loads of questions and things keep niggling at me. Chiefly, the no self thing. Do ...
