Re: Osho

Depends on the service folks. I honestly don't have a problem with any spiritual folk trying to make a buck in this western world we live in, where money is kind of needed to get around. Spiritual teachers/healers are humans in the western world, just like you and I. I don't see any reason, they sh...

Re: Osho

Or there's Gary Renard who charges over $300.00 an hour for a phone conversation in which he promises that his "ascended masters" may show up and speak through him to the person to bestow their wisdom on the person (which I usually bestow my "wisdom" to these fans online. DON'T CALL!). Row, Row, Ro...

Re: Osho

One could legitimately say that Malala Yousafza also has authority issues. It isn't necessarily a bad thing resist illegitimate authority (and just about all humanly established authority to some degree is illegitimate) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/89/Malala_Yousafzai_at_Gi...

Re: Osho

There's much to learn from Osho/Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, on many levels. WW Not the least of which is to avoid deifying creatures that, like yourself, are constituted of flesh and blood directed by an ego. Osho's venality was generously underwritten by all those who regarded him as something he was ...

Re: It Seems LoA and PoN Are Complete Opposites

Yes, you said it better than I did. Thanks. The principle, as a principle, stands independent of those who market it as a pop culture quick fix to get the "stuff you want". They could market gravity similarly I suppose: Just throw that gold nugget in your hand up into the air and watch it magically ...

Re: It Seems LoA and PoN Are Complete Opposites

My take is that in a universe of infinite abundance, wanting more is as natural as being itself. 'More' is likely the underlying reason we are here in this physical incarnation. It is likely the reason for the universe itself. To me LoA is a call to incite people to want more material stuff. My lif...

Re: It Seems LoA and PoN Are Complete Opposites

To me LoA is a call to incite people to want more. My life experience has shown me that peace and happiness are found in the opposite direction of wanting less. For that reason I think it is misleading as an efficient path to what really will make us inwardly happy but can see why it has such a wide...

Re: What does 'awakening'/'enlightenment' mean to you?

I am. I am this. I am so beautifully this. This is not separate from anything, this contains all the world. I do not hold happiness in higher esteem than sadness, nor light than dark. I am this and everything is welcome at my table. To live this - that's the part that is still unfolding. The integr...

Re: Self Validation and Self Deprecation

There is nothing that is not the present moment except for thoughts and the imaginary possessor or container of them that would like to coerce or cajole the present moment into manifesting as it imagines it "should". And even that appears within the present moment but has a long habit of imagining i...

Re: life is becoming more and more grim

Sometimes a large portion of depression can be biochemical. I'd recommend going to see a doctor and see if they think some sort of anti-depressant medication might help you. It is unlikely, in itself, to solve all the existential problems you describe but perhaps it can lift you up enough over that ...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity Maybe you are. If so, congratulations. It's certainly not impossible but, I would say, it is highly improbable.

Lovely, inspiring interview.

You should get your last name legally changed to "joy" for the sake of truth in advertising. :D

Agreed.
All these grave matters that weigh heavy on us seekers should be seen as such, and we just might be tempted to stop looking long enough to enjoy the fun....and what would happen if that became a habit? :shock:

Re: Line in the Sand?

The human mind grasps nothing it cannot chunk together and unchunk in conceptual units. Our minds are digital, episodic, and unit based which is why we can watch a succession of static pictures flashed before us and weave it into a convincing approximation of fluid movement. They say our eyes normal...
