Re: Too much spirituo-babble

Well then, Vpopov81, I'm sure you can find something better to do with yourself than hanging around here reading all the babble and spending your energy pointing it out to the members here. :) When you read posts that seem silly or don't resonate with you, why not simply ignore them? Yes I should a...

Re: Too much spirituo-babble

According to Tolle, a spiritual teacher shouts at people in her office everyday and makes the working environment quite stressful for her secretary. I don't mind the spiritual babbles of the teachers, because they have done the best in formulating the mumble jumble pointers. But the teacher could h...

Re: Help me connect with my girlfriend.

Ask her if she wants to take some ecstacy with you. Great drug for getting people to relax and open up.

Re: Too much spirituo-babble

On my daily quotes I had a quote that said "The true meaning of the precepts is not just that one should refrain from drinking alcohol, but also from getting drunk on nirvana. - Bassui"

Re: This too shall pass.

Thanks, that makes sense and was sort of where I was going. I like the "alive intelligence" part. So through alive intelligence you can ascertain the "karmic" need of the recipient--if it is right to give? On the other hand, can there be any wrong action, egoic or otherwise? Maybe that is what ET m...

Re: This too shall pass.

In my opinion it depends on the context of giving. If you are giving for egoic reasons I will quote Jesus and say you have your reward in full. If you are giving out of a false sense of responsibility or obligation or even guilt then this is when giving is a sin and will harm both you and the one yo...

Re: This too shall pass.

I meant that you are not shaken internally. You are capable of being slapped and your happiness being unaffected. And the most practical reason for forgiveness is that if you don't forgive you are the one who suffers, it has nothing to do with being good. When Jesus was called good teacher he would ...

Re: This too shall pass.

I don't think Jesus said turn the other cheek because its the good and loving thing to do. He taught that one should be spiritually unmovable "like a man who built his house upon the rock." I think the modern interpretation has ruined the wisdom of this spiritual juggernaut. And there is nothing wro...
