Re: Non-Duality

Hi Snowball, You asked me a couple of quesions. Yes, I believe Jesus was God in human form. Yes, I believe in the virign birth. Hopefully that will encourage you to put more smiley faces! Neither beliefs really effect me to a great degree. What matters for me is just living the words that Jesus taug...

Re: Non-Duality

To believe in the (dualistic) concept of higher and lower natures, and at the same time proclaim to be a non dualist is a contradiction. Correct me if I wrong, which I am sure you will, but isn't the repeated reference to consciousness and unconsciousness dualistic then? I mean both are states of b...

Non-Duality

Non-Dualism I have a few self-proclaimed “non-dualist” friends who get combative toward “dualists”, which, ironically, shows ...

Re: Why Jesus and Buddha told us to give away desires.

Hi Binjoy, Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I am not sure what the reference is to Michael, but I do know that this teaching from Jesus was one that he directed to many people, the religious people of his time, to a rich man and to large multitudes of people that followed him. Certainly, it seems s...

Re: 2012, a beginning ,end or rubbish

I don't think anything significant will happen in 2012, (well at leas nothing like the end of the world). I don't think the bible actually states the year the end will come, and I do agree that a calender has to stop at some point, and so yeah, it just so happens that 2012 is the end of the calender...

Re: The Law of Confusion- an essay

I haven't read the secret, but I know the idea of trying to manifest what we want, and as has been pointed out by others, what most people want is wealth/possessions/money, then I doubt the book is really trying to point people towards the light, but just spiritualizing selfishness. I know that you ...

Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

I really like a film called 'To end all wars'. I think the thing I appreciated most from it was that circumstances do NOT have to dictate how we live and feel. And that even though people can hate us, and we want to at times protect and look after ourselves, LOVE can conquer all these things, and ma...

Re: self-discipline

I think that being motivated to discipline ourselves is a good thing. I guess it depends though on 'why' your disciplining yourself. For example, I don't agree with the army, and disciplining oneself to be a better killer, doesn't really jive with my understanding of Life. Though I can appreciate th...

Re: Material Success throught enlightenment

Take Jesus for example, a pure teacher of enlightenment. He taught that people should forsake their possessions, and that riches would be a hinder them in their quest for enlightenment. Blessed are the poor he says.
