Re: Food For Thought

Experience is more significant than age. Experience comes with age. Duh... Maybe they should follow the advice of this forum they have come to and engage with it bringing forth their feelings in this moment. Maybe posters should write their own posts however they want to and readers should read wha...

Re: Awakening

More changing the subject from the post to the poster WW. I agree this poster is absolutely fascinating, :-) but readers might find it more interesting to inquire in to why any teacher or teaching needs to be protected. Who here has "awoken" enough to explore this? If we mistakenly believe the answe...

Re: Awakening

You many not find it helpful. I didn't say that. I found it a helpful bit of writing to reply to. I found it accurate in some regards, and articulate throughout. But I'm not a true believer bowing down to salute each utterance of every self appointed imaginary holy man, that's all. Nor do I request...

Re: First- and second-order awareness

I thought that I am,
Probably a yam,
Or maybe a guy named sam,
A girl called pam?
A crook on the lam?
Who I yam that I yam, so hard. Damn!
And then wham!, it hit me,
Bam, right between the eyes,
All this yamming...
Always gets me in a jam!

Re: Awakening

Having a tough morning Baba Bozo? Best you stay away from sharp objects for a while. Apologies but this is the classic New Age dishonest double talk mumbo jumbo which attempts to pose all effective critiques of the "holy becoming story" as being a personal weakness of the person offering the critiq...

Re: Food For Thought

For my part, I demand that from here out all posters write in Chinese. This way nobody will understand anything being said, we'll get bored and give up, and the silence we seek will come upon us. 論曰:「襲鼎臣、喬執中始終不渝厥守,豈易得哉?」 宋之人才自祖宗涵養,至於中葉盛矣。顏復、鄭穆醇然儒者,官居師表;襲鼎臣、喬執中始終不渝厥守,豈易得哉?章衡欲復山後八州,為國啟釁;孫升以蘇軾比王安石為人;韓川...

Excellent reply to my yam poem! And unlike my poem, actually relevant to the thread. :-)

Re: Awakening

When we are in the world of the thinking mind, we are somewhere in the remembered past or the imagined future. We are in a world of thought, memory, concept, idea, opinion and belief. We are not here now. What we are experiencing is not the truth and reality of the present moment. The truth and rea...

Re: First- and second-order awareness

I am a yam, I am, I am...
I am a yam this yam I am...
Yammering for yams I think I am...
But only a yam I am...
So it seems unlikely.

Re: First- and second-order awareness

And what does it add to our human experience if daily life takes on the qualities of awareness To the degree we are focused on thinking about ourselves we are adding bricks to the wall of our own little prison cell. Some of this is the inevitable price tag for being human. Some of it is necessary. ...

Re: First- and second-order awareness

Maybe awareness is not a thought stream, but the open mental space in which thought streams arise and can be seen. Seen by who? Any "who" is made of thought, so the moment of seeing returns us to that realm. Of course, "we" can never leave the realm of thought in the first place, as "me" is made of...

Re: First- and second-order awareness

Using the proven principles of bloviational science and bombastic mathematics, we could perhaps hypothesize the following mechanical explanation of awareness to a high degree of arrogant certainty, assuming of course that we have accounted for flatulent distortion in our calculations. Thought is inh...

Re: Panic on the Streets of London

The question that always occurs to me regarding Tolle type teachings is.... Is our focus on "me and my situation" the cure, or is it the disease? This is not pointing fingers, as we all have such a focus or we wouldn't be here. All humans have such a focus, with the differences between us being only...

Re: Campfire tales: What is the purpose of a human life?

Something like that ... This is my (current) "best life advice" to myself: Rest in present experience. By rest, I mean: inhabit, give into, coincide with ... without judgment or resistance. (If judgment or resistance shows up, rest in these just like any other experience.) This raises a question ve...
