Such is conversation...never does stick to one topic. Just an organic flow from one point to another. I do sense a sort of overall theme to what we are talking about here though.. But to circle back around to the original topic (thank you Narz!) Falling in love, and observing people in love are two ...

Are you sure it takes groundwork? Or could it be that enlightenment is so simple that all the groundwork does is to finally, once and for all, show you that planning, effort, groundwork is unnecessary? Nothing is necessary. Who is doing the work? and on what? I was listening to Tolle on the headphon...

Right on Kiki and Student. Indeed, nothing is very tricky and complicated. Many, many years to learn it. To achieve nothing you need a very advanced teacher. I use my houseplant. :) Cats make fine gurus too...advanced practitioners of Doing Nothing. reminds me of an old Zen poem I heard once: Sittin...

Isnt that the wildest conundrum? It takes effort to finally realize that effort itself is the problem. Wonderful! Stunning! Who is making all of this up? Most people work all the time to maintain their self. Some people realize that being a self is painful and so they work all the time to get rid of...

Re: Scientific explanations

some do. most people who get enlightened have worked on it for years regardless of which category they belong to. maybe work on it until they finally give up working on it. If you bang your head against a wall long enough, eventually you learn that it hurts and you stop. Have to say it ain't easy i...

It doesn’t matter what the words are, its what they signify. Are there really any right or wrong words Apparently there is significance to a great many people or we would not have the religious division we now have in this world. Thats just it. We confuse words with reality. We think words are real...

Look at love: We can see that people are in love and that people are not in love. But what makes someone fall in love we do not know and yet the experience is real. People also say the have fallen in love but we have no proof of that either some of us do not even have that experience so we just hav...

my son has suddenly started playing Table Tennis very well. God knows where that came from? exactly! :) Writing is no different. Tell me, when the perfect phrase comes to mind, where does it come from? Almost like a thunderbolt, yes? From where that Inspiration? Knowledge of presence has nothing to...

Thank you for the sceptical perspective ninjin, it forces us to focus on the question...what is real? more questions.. Why do you want an explanation of enlightenment rather than enlightenment itself? Is the explanation of the experience more important to you than the experience? If you were lost in...

Theres certainly nothing wrong with planning, purpose or honing a talent. All very useful. Talent makes life enjoyable. So if I want more and better talent, what Im interested in is....where does talent come from? Id say, the most talented thing I ever did was to grow the body that sits and types th...
