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

But I told him that from the perspective of God, there is no object he works through, there is only himself as himself. Just out of curiosity, what did he say when you told him this? Or better yet, is infinite awareness considered mystisicm? The way I see it: Christianity indirectly points to Mysti...

When you say we awaken "to" our lives, do you mean when we begin to see the true nature of everything, largely free of projected thoughts and ideas?
Yes, exactly. :D

Re: How do we reconcile inner and outer purpose?

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 troubling. It may help to look at it this way: we don't awaken from our human lives, we awaken to them. That is, we...

Scriptures, at best, merely point to truth. Truths transcend all writings. The truth that matters is that which is written in your heart, not on paper no matter how it's dressed up.
Love it! Well said, WW. :D

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

This video explains everything. Rupert spira should learn from him. 😌 Https://youtu.be/EYmOECFQILE :lol: If we neglect our mind and body under the pretext of some magical real 'I' then we are just fooling ourselves. Agree with you on that one. :wink: We definitely shouldn't neglect our mind and bod...

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

Can anyone prove that consciousness is not the function/feature of the brain? No, but it is everyone's direct experience (if they really care to investigate and discover that it is in fact their direct experience) that the brain is a function/feature of Awareness/Consciousness, rather than the othe...

Re: Grief - Not the normal kind

What presence does is allow you to consciously choose acceptance, enjoyment and enthusiasm instead. It's a different existence and experience of life. It brings love - the equilibrium of gratitude and generosity* to the fore. It allows us to see what is, to be with what is, to appreciate what is in...

(By the way, I like the first comment in the comment section of that youtube video... A quote by Alan Watts: "Your mind is not in your head. Your head is in your mind." :D )

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

Good discussion :D Waverider, have you seen this Rupert Spira video? To me, Rupert's explanation is very helpful in seeing/understanding that there is only Awareness/Consciousness and that everything that appears to exist outside of and apart from Awareness/Consciousness is actually just an appearan...

Re: Awakening, Ego and Soul

In Vedanta there is reference to a 'subtle body' (Shutla Sharira in Sanskrit) which survives the death of the gross body and reincarnates. In eastern traditions (Vedanta, Buddhism) reincarnation is taken for granted since those philosophies are based on the notion of karma (action). The Karmic phil...
