Re: Person I spoke with said pure awareness is just psychological mystisicm and new age bs?

I don't understand how someone can say that it is mystisicm to abide as pure awareness. When I think of mystisicm, I think of the beyond, the divine. But awareness is both divine and not divine at the same time. It can be mystical because it's infinite, but it's a very ordinary infinite. As a halfw...

Re: Person I spoke with said pure awareness is just psychological mystisicm and new age bs?

There's nothing in my post above that has anything to do with mysticism. It's mostly conventional religious teachings looked at in its most fundamental context. Scriptures from multiple religions, including Christianity, speak often of the Oneness of God. The three Omni's also came out of long stand...

Re: Person I spoke with said pure awareness is just psychological mystisicm and new age bs?

How would you explain to someone pure awareness without giving them a reason to dismiss it as mysticism bs? For those inclined to hold scripture as truthful, or even God based spirituality, the exploration of the ' Oneness of God ' may be useful. Another way to consider Oneness of God is to break i...

Re: Not suicidal but also not afraid of dying?

While there is a lot of insight in your post above, it doesn't really address the whole story. Yes, we're all going to die eventually. But what about the context of life while we're here? If somehow you found yourself at a giant amusement park with all kinds of entertainment and educational exhibits...

Re: Practices for staying present

Is this normal for a begineer or am i just getting worried for no reason? Yes it is normal. Look at it this way. Rather than focusing on the fact that you sometimes get distracted by thought, focus on the time you are mindful and present. Nothing is lost. Clarity is cumulative over time. Time spent...

Re: How do we reconcile inner and outer purpose?

But if the Source, that is the pure conscious awareness, is already whole and complete, how can it evolve? Or am I as an expression of it supposed to evolve, and "return home" as it were? If so, I can't reconcile that with there being more to human life than awakening from it, which I find troublin...

Re: How do we reconcile inner and outer purpose?

How do we reconcile awakening and human life in the physical world? Consider, you were awake before you came to this world. At least more than you are at the moment. If you take that as a truth then you must know that you knew you were going into a relative dream state that is the human experience....

That's why when in front of a buddha you either come more alive or feel yourself disappearing more.

Re: Conversation I had about the Bible with my relative

The concern with so many of those who believe that Scriptures are themselves truth, is that to move on from that belief risks hell and damnation. It is a tie that binds. For example, one case I have often heard true believers make is that if I am right that they will be fine in whatever life comes n...

Re: my addictions

Welcome to the forum. Addictions are common in this human experience. Simply resistance to them, as you have seen, usually doesn't provide the results we would like. Two things I would suggest. First, don't beat yourself up for them. That only feeds a sense of failure and undermines any efforts to a...

Re: I Am Chronically Troubled - Past Regret & Future Fear.

...there is still a large disconnect, wherein I feel everything I do is "pointless", unenjoyable, and makes me fear the regret of "wasted" time. This is made worse by seeing the world as a hostile and bleak place, which seems to be my ego strengthening its separateness from everything else. Take a ...

I pray to Our Heavenly Father that all people who read the above come to accept His One and Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour in Jesus Christ’s Name Amen.
