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...

Re: Dealing with hard-core Christians?

Either way what I found is, don't just share non dualistic ideas, but BE the presence while you do it. It's easy to turn a non dualistic statement into just another belief. You have to truly be freedom itself to free others Well said! Kinda funny. I came across this Epictetus quote just this mornin...

How do people not see the underlying message?
I think it's because they're looking only with their minds.

And this cartoon pretty much sums up what happens when you look at God with the mind and then attempt to describe it to others:

Re: Location problems

the sky where you are is the same sky as where you might think you'd rather be - notice and appreciate cloud forms, skylines, stars, birds whatever, notice a flower or a tree or some any 'thing' and pour your love into it in a moment - it's a choice - it's easy to do, it's also easy not to. This is...

Re: Awakening, Ego and Soul

I enjoyed reading your post, Andy. :D Brought to mind this Eckhart quote: "Nothing that was real ever died, only names, forms, and illusions." And also these questions: What is it that reincarnates?... other than a names, forms, and illusions? and Ultimately, is an individual "soul" just an expanded...

Only awareness knows love, and only love knows awareness since awareness is love.
Lovely! :D
