No moderation

Hi

This is my last post here.

I have asked Heidi to moderate on what I consider an abusive post and she has refused.

I understand that to be tacit approval of the offensive post

So be it

I'll not post in an unmoderated forum.

All the best to all

It is not about choice. It is about decision. To be able to make a decision implies a choice in the first place. Whether you like the idea of choice seems irrelevant to the qestion of whether it exists I may not like the rain falling, but I cannot deny its existence Mankind is the living proof of c...

Most of your post seems whimsical, however the bit I've highlighted here seems quite clear.



It appears you have a huge pain-body Herbert.

I'd watch that.

Choice is an apparency but not a truth. We appear to have a choice and it feels like we have a choice but in the ultimate truth we don't. In the ultimate truth life is living through apparently separated life forms, some of which appear to make choices. That's the theory, but to the unawakened me, ...

Thank you for answering, Dee. And I wasn't kidding, I really didn't know. I have to say I am startled that you view choice in such a way. It is vital, paramount Perhaps "choice" is what is blocking us from Oneness. No, choice is the instrument whereby we can achieve liberation from form...............

You are kidding ? I'm sorry, I thought that was self-evident. Choice IMO has to be the most important thing about being human. Its what seperates us from the rest of manifestation. I came across this 40 years ago in the novel East of Eden. It taught me that we always have choices, no matter how seem...

On this "Only the unconditioned is free to choose"

Of course, and that which is unconditioned within us is making this choice
I agree, Dee.

On "Thou Mayest", I loved it. Gave me a laugh. Thank you. :D
Regarding 'thou mayest'

Perhaps you could explain the basis of your amusement

There is always choice, even within a conditioned mind, There are a myraid of choices within the conditioned mind. But they are all conditioned. There is no free choice, real choice here. Like being able to choose not to think. Or being able to choose not to suffer. Or being able to fully accept th...

There is always choice, even within a conditioned mind, afterall, aren't we all living within some sort of conditioning, yet we still make choices constantly as the now unfolds Although these choices may be limited...
