Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

The problem with what you are saying about me is, it isn't substantiated by any evidence. Since the evidence substantiates what i am saying about you and the gang you call valued members, it is understandable why you would not want want the inquiry i was proposing. In any case, so be it.

Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

WW Still obsessing over the person and not on the topic? I invited you to an inquiry. An inquiry isn't an one sided "highlighting" but both inquirers together looking at facts. In other words you will also consider the points i will be highlighting. Are you giving me that chance? If so then we will ...

Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

wsmcasey One is a rather baffled not only by the contents of your post since it has nothing to do on "certainty/uncertainty" that i was discussing, but also the fact that you have directed it to me. Since one's participation on this thread hasn't been with you and since I have never spoken to you be...

Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

One has said what wanted to say on "certainty". If you are able to refute any of them then do so and we can look into it. If you can't understand something then ask and i will try to explain but obviously i cannot give you comprehension. As to attacks, one has no idea what you are talking about, you...

Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

Anyone saying certainty is dangerous have to demonstrate it in their conduct. They have to show a willingness to walk into the middle of uncertainty and to face it head on, not run away from it at the first challenge of what may seem like an uncertain idea/person/situation. Not try to weasel out of ...

Re: How to deal with my friend's negative behaviour in spite of my own hurt feelings and insecurities

Again, it is not a matter or "your" or "choice", but of relevancy. I understand there is lot of fear but at least don't close yourself to pondering on this point.

Re: How to deal with my friend's negative behaviour in spite of my own hurt feelings and insecurities

While lot can be said on Sophistry and can be used to tear down the person who engages in such activities but i won't do it, except just to remind us that it won't get you anywhere. The analogy of the alcoholic and the thief was given to highlight the futility in seeking resonance. Context matters. ...

Re: How to deal with my friend's negative behaviour in spite of my own hurt feelings and insecurities

I find it hard to not give a cent to critical opinions because what if there is some kernel of truth in what they're saying? How do I distinguish whether the source of my hurt feelings isn't coming from a place of ego/defensiveness and should therefore process it instead of labelling the person as ...

Re: The hope of 'being', in hopes of becoming

There seems to be a need to add disclaimers on the posts to the effect, if you do not understand the post then ask. If one does not have enough point of references in one's life, to understand what is being said, then don't just come up with stuff and say it. By doing so you will be exposing your c...

Re: The hope of 'being', in hopes of becoming

One wonders if we ask ourselves what is hope? What is it's relationship with desire? What is the relationship of desire with fear?

After all these take us on the never ending roller coaster ride on the mirage of becoming, which as we all know, ends with a fistful of ash the wind blows away.

The hope of 'being', in hopes of becoming

On the ocean of fear, goaded by the currents of becoming, all efforts 'to be' ‘happier’, every system, every book, every teacher, every philosophy, every success, every failure, every path, is an idol in the temple of hopes, wants and fears. They have to be taken away from us . They are a barrier be...

Re: Death

One wonders if we ask ourselves, what is death? Is it possible to meet it? To Understand what it is while one is still conscious? After all its always there with us. All the vanities, the pursuits, the pain and the heartache, a burden of an entire lifetime of striving, fighting, grovelling to streng...

Re: Being with sorrow, the precious jewel

In the previous question rather than being presumptuous one was attempting to sum up the intent of your participation. As in your seriousness and sincerity or the lack thereof, as well as your lack of contribution to the subject matter/points; brought forth. Thank you for confirming it.
