Re: Relating with Others

7: > There's many who envision the 'enlightened state' as being full of love and compassion, > as if you'll be so outwardly warm and friendly to all. > I'm keen to point out that is false. Okay, but what if we take the first line from the 3 above, replace the comma at the end with a period, replace...

Re: Relating with Others

Lucy, the sense of separation is yours. As long as you look at the surface for answers, at what I say and what I do, you will be inwardly disappointed and frightened because if it doesn't match up to your idea of oneness you'll naturally want to reject it. The human mind being what it is, gravitates...

Re: Relating with Others

7Worlds, Would you say that your actions are based on an impulse rather than thought? For example, you come to a fork in a road, you have an impulse to take the longer route, but you are running late for an appointment, you decide to take the longer route because you are honouring an impulse that a...

Re: Relating with Others

It's fine by me what mistral has said. He/she has every right to express their opinion within the rules set here. Any claims of enlightenment are totally from the readers' perspective. That word is meaningless to me. I can say what I say because I know if there are others here who are functioning th...

Re: Relating with Others

It is a direct certainty Lucy. Not the certainty we claim about anything else. Your wondering about it there is the very thing that gets in the way of you knowing it directly, because it implies you still want someone elses authority to be sure. Who's authority is ever going to satisfy that wonderin...

Re: Awakening and marijuana

We, as society, simply cannot afford to create a drug for each individual. Exactly. Money is always top priority. As long as that motive is there how can any of them claim to be genuinely interested in an individual's health and welfare? Without the interference of doctors, scientists, politicians ...

Re: Awakening and marijuana

Industrial products tend to be safer because we usually know exactly the quantity and quality of drugs in pharmaceutical formulations. However, the quality and quantity of various active chemicals in raw plants varies greatly from year to year and also depends on geographical areas. And this is onl...

Re: Relating with Others

Incidentally, according to a theory I read, the understanding of the word "world" has seven levels: "Nothing is accidental in Existence." :wink: I don't read too much into this Tony - it is what is however it is happening - but I have no idea why I chose the 'sevenworlds' part from the song. I just...

Re: Relating with Others

Hi Lucy, I don't really know what it is. I'm not trying to be difficult but that is the thing... I can't say what others mean by 'oneness'. Everything I say about this is using a term that is based on someone elses experience. So then if I say it is that, it becomes an experience. What I can say is ...

Re: Relating with Others

I hear what you are saying, but don't understand it. You haven't clarified anything for me. What I truly don't understand is your viewpoint that what you experience can be extrapolated to others experience (will by default be our experience, so you can talk about it so authoritatively)...or do you ...

Re: Relating with Others

I really didn't want to get into this but now I find all these questions. You bring everything out of me. This is tricky because we're dealing with words and whatever I say gets misconstrued. In trying to make one thing clear we end up creating a whole new ball of confusion. If you were listening to...

Re: Relating with Others

ps: Something else of interest arises in consciousness. Over in another thread you give Tony S-Ma dire warnings because he challenges your comments. If there is no you, nor a Tony, to whom are your comments directed? And why would they need to be in the form of a warning? Is someone in danger? You ...

Re: Relating with Others

Thanks for the suggestion seven, but I've been there and done that. It tends to be a bit more Zombie like than I care for. Presence persists in common with a more active engagement. It's a bit of a delicate balance, and takes some getting used to, but it's a lot more interesting. To each his own I ...
