Re: I Simply Want to Socialize with You

Hi Clarity, Besides becoming enlightened, what interests do you have? I enjoy traveling, cooking and tossing around ideas. I grew up with wood fires and they featured throughout my life. On the whole I really enjoyed the whole ritual of lighting the fire, digging the ash into my vegetable garden. C...

Re: I Simply Want to Socialize with You

Hello, Clarity. Thanks for the invitation and well wishes. I'm thinking about fire right now. I'm somewhat obsessed. I have a wood stove and burn lots of wood as it's mostly below freezing where I live. I am mesmerized by fire, it's my mediation many nights, and a recurring koan is, 'where does fir...

Re: A Pull from Infinity

:D I liken it to an infinite camera lens, wherever our attention is there is always more detail outside the frame, and microscopically within it. All good fun. (not sure if you saw I responded to your post in EnterZenFromHere's Enlightenment thread too. :D Ah, such a beautiful metaphor. I hope you'...

I Simply Want to Socialize with You

Hello to all. I would like to say, I hope everyone is having a wonderful day/night/morning/afternoon. This thread doesn't have to be anything specific. I simply thought this would be fun, to talk about anything and everything. Spiritual, non-spiritual, anything. What is on the mind's chalkboard for ...

Thanks E2B, can you see 'friends' in the way of the Little Soul & the Sun parable? Clarity of moment said:What is the true point of your post? Validation? COM, if you're asking Zen that about the OP, this is a long thread now, he's explained the 'true point' a number of times. From what I've read i...

Unlimited potential, is by definition unlimited.


Ah, yet again, my own thought imposed a limit lol. Thank you for bringing that up. I've made sort of a little game with it, sort of an "I Spy" infinity version lol.

A Pull from Infinity

There can be an infinite amount of human beings. No human being can ever literally be the same, so there is an individual infinite amount of possibilities for a human being Each human being has the ability to think about anything on an infinite level. There is no limit to thought or imagination. Eac...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

What is the true point of your post? Validation? To me, atleast, there's a difference between having an Awakening experience, and having an Awakening experience and living from that understanding. One could realize the truth, and play the whole "Nothing is real, it's all an illusion", and turn into ...

Re: has anyone here been able to maintain their awakening?

I , personally, have learned not to equate the truth with a "feeling", because all feelings and emotions, good or bad, come to pass. I think acceptance of the fact that you may not always be in a state of pure bliss and peace, will provide you with a different kind of peace. Awareness is intimately ...

Re: Universal Individualism

I wonder, other than the primary experience of "I Am", what are the purpose of the mind-body? (other than for Consciousness to "know" something other than itself) My take is that human life is an exploration of one possible venue of experience. In eternity, there are infinite such possibilities. Th...

Should challenges arise, and doubts return, reread your last post and remind yourself of what you know. It is generally the way of things for all of us on the conscious path to greater awareness. Explore, enjoy, appreciate, love. It's all good in the long run. WW Thank you for the reply. I apprecia...

Re: Doesn't Awareness die with the body?

Awareness, is an ever-present, continuous experience, it has no gaps. That is most people's experience, as if you weren't "Aware" then what was there to witness the coming and going of Awareness. Awareness, based off experience, is ever present and continuous, it has no gaps. However, you are not al...

Re: Doesn't Awareness die with the body?

Awareness is an ever present, continous experience. You are always aware, but you are not always aware of your body. Awareness is continuous, it has no gaps, so how could Awareness be a byproduct of something that is intermittent such as the mind-body? Awareness is Aware of itself, simply by Being i...

Re: Problems with "Not Having Problems"

I TRULY appreciate all the replies and posts on this thread. Upon further investigation of "myself" or rather "the nonexistence of self", I realized the mind is a habit, and it doesn't just switch around and begin serving the Presence of Awareness over night lol. I also realized, that which is forml...
