Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

Epiphany, can I ask --- do you consider that you are looking at this from the mind? as if you are your mind? - ET: . As long as you still think you are your mind, you have no free will. Spiritually you are unconscious. You may think you know what you want, but you don’t. It is only the conditioning...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

Epiphany, what exactly are you trying to prove with this thread? Have you not read the 900 million other threads about free will on this forum? What's the purpose of creating....yet....ANOTHER thread with the same limited ideas merely being thrown around in more circular debates? You've already mad...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

epiphany said, The first two are meaningless questions. The watching is doing the watching. Placing a who behind it is playing to the illusion of a unitary self doing the watching, creating more metaphysical layers upon which to build this "watcher of the watching". Why can't the watching just be wa...

Re: Depersonalisation / Derealisation

I dont understand. How can you be confident that if I wanted to remember something I'd just 'do it'? My mind is impaired through no will of my own, I would not willingly inflict this on myself, I am not a masochist. I was pointing to the automatic nature of your thought processes, of which memory f...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

"Free will is just another silly religious belief." All beliefs are religious, in that all beliefs are some form of dogmatism or another to some degree. Either true or not true, it doesn't really matter, as what's true and not true doesn't require belief. But yeah, there is no such thing as free wi...

Re: No-mind...stillness working through you without your eff

It is literally the opposite of fear. The opposite of fear is trust. Trusting in life is the same as acceptance/surrender, which is the same as unconditional love. Which is not the same as faith, as faith is literally belief without evidence. Trust conversely requires no belief. SOMEHOW there's sti...

Re: Self realization

Thanks DB, I do my best. I'm working on a writing project that should be tied up soon, although I'm not sure, and am certainly curious to see how folks react to it. I notice there's things I'm just not good at, so have decided to turn sales, promotion, and that sort of thing over to people who are ...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

You're putting words in my mouth and distorting what I said. I apologize for not being more clear, in that i was using the word valid in the same context you were in your first post. Apparently not. You keep arguing for a context of your own making and assigning it to me. It's clear that you do not...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

WW said, Because operating through distortion is a valid experience of distortion. It has value from a broader perspective. This is what I mean by nonsense. An experience of distortion is distorted, and sure, it's validly distorted. Why even to say it? If someone is pointing you beyond your distorti...

Re: Free will is just another silly religious belief

How's that for context consideration? Needs work. But then all consideration is valid... within a broad enough context. :wink: As to experience, to say one experience is valid and another is not is to say one is right and the other wrong. Again context matters. If you consider from a context where ...

Re: Depersonalisation / Derealisation

Regarding memory loss.... if you experience this definitely get your vitamin D level checked! I was having horrible short term memory loss several months ago it was caused by an almost non existent vitamin D level. This is my public announcement for the day! Lol And now, back to your originally sch...
