Re: Doing

'But in the awareness beyond thought is Truth, and that generally trumps thinking.' Ah yes, but are you aware that the awareness beyond thought is thought - that the great intelligence of the Unverse is pure thought and that from pure thought all lifeforms are created? With love - Aquarius My attem...

Were you by any chance born into one of the Air signs? ... Don't recall that I took much notice at the time-- but it may have been under the sign of Joe's Bar and Grill. Yes, there is a place for thinking -- just like there's a place for brushing your teeth. But in the awareness beyond thought is T...

...don't you think... Those three words could be diagrammed and parsed in so many ways! They could be said with so many different inflections of voice, and have so many different meanings! And yes -- there are times when I think we should not think. And there are times when I think we must think --...

Re: What to do when you can't love what is

If I cannot love, I surrender to God and God loves for me. I like these words ! And I've never heard of such psychological phenomena on traumatic events. Very interesting. Some reading of the literature on origins of split personalities might be helpful. I was once in a car crash -- saw the driving...

Re: What to do when you can't love what is

Try loving whatever arises in the present moment. Many times we just can't do it. It may be particularly difficult in very traumatic situations. For example, if I am witnessing the torture of my child by an intruder who has me under his control. Such events are very rare, but they do happen. In suc...

Re: I Believe in Heaven on Earth....

...let this be the age of awakening to our true purpose, time of heaven on earth. Reminds me of the old writings of the Rev. Thomas Dick -- on the celestialization of planetary civilizations, etc. Also of my own experience within the theology of Latter Day Saintism (which promotes the notion of hea...

Probably just another aspect of your own self -- seeming to communicate
to you, in a virtual forum, under a somewhat different name and persona.

Then again, that may not quite be right, either -- who knows?

Re: Who Truly Beliieves in Enlightnment? Is it sensationalized?

They might not even be able to survive here. But I've met a handful who were both wise and compassionate. And, of ...

Re: Mysticism

No-mind is not a state that can be achieved by the mind... True -- but then again, the mind can be used as a tool, to take us in that direction. "Mysticism" is not a phenomenon limited to some certain person(s) at some certain time and place in human history. It is widespread -- communicated in man...

Re: Doing

Why adopt a "point of view"? How is that helpful? Why do we need a point of view? What about acting spontaneously without a point of view?..

Unless we help them to grow their own food, we shall get no further. Just supplying clean water and better health care on its own is not enough, as the story illustrates.

Re: birth order effect

This is only a casual observation, but it has been pervasive in my limited experience and wonder if any one else has noticed the following phenomenon.
