Hi everyone... I am sitting in a lecture today and the professor is just about to prove a complex theorem about how wave-functions compose images. Finally he finishes with an expectant look on his face as though we are to acknoledge the complex truth that he wrote on the blackboard. But I can`t. I c...

Re: Social Communication

I also found myself being more free spirited, and willing to engage in the old ego conversations but with a lighthearted sense of just trying to be funny or whatever. I realized I didnt have to be so serious about this enlightenment business.

Re: Letting go of the Reins

Hey Jason As we awaken on the level of mind... Can you maybe elaborate on that please? Is consciousness or emptyness waking up to itself like its often called? And how can this be if it is eternal, unchanging, without motivation or will of its own? Or is mind just realising the futility of its strug...

Re: Favorite Quotes

Alice came to a fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?"
responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

Re: Why can't I show love?

There was a boy A very strange enchanted boy They say he wandered very far, very far Over land and sea A little shy and sad of eye But very wise was he And then one day A magic day he passed my way And while we spoke of many things Fools and kings This he said to me "the greatest thing you'll ever ...

Re: Nightmare

My mission in life is not to be loved as much as possible. It's instead to love others as much as possible.
There is so much freedom in this. Once we realize we don`t need others love or approval to be happy and free, we can simply stop and be the love, we were always searching for.

I just read spiritual warfare and it`s "a masterpiece - highly disturbing" as its says on the cover.

Re: Byron Katie's The Work facilitator

I contacted the facilitator today but was crushed to learn that the cost of 6 weekly one-hour face to face sessions, as opposed to sessions through Skype, and daily emails with assigments is $4000.00 Wow, that is really a lot of money, considering that a teacher can essentially do nothing more than...

Re: Strong egoic attachment after months of peace

Nothing real can be threatened,
Nothin unreal exists,
Herein lies the peace of God.
Wow. Summarizing the whole of spirituality in just three lines. This is really pointing to a truth too huge for mind to comprehend.

Re: Consciousness Rising

Satan is another elaborate ego game; see how easy it is to remain caught in a perspective that was conditioned into thinking by religious teachings.. As well as "ego" can so easily become another ego game. How easy it is to remain caught in a perspective that is conditioned into thinking by spritua...

Re: Does Evil exist?

Anyone who has been around the severely mentally disturbed also knows there is a demonic presence in some that is undeniable.
They are innocently believing their thoughts to be true, do they not? Like 99% of humanity do to a great extend.
