Re: Are we insane ?

Jen, Thank you for sharing. Does life have to be only celebrated ? Can it not be condemned as well ? Your answer makes me think of those who sing the praise of tyranny ... I am sad to say, this is how I feel, though I know you are a very kind and sensitive person. Seeing only the positive side of th...

Re: Are we insane ?

Was it just an experiment or were you serious about using the gun ? Is it "insanity"? or is that just what happens? 6 years ago HermitLoon sat in a recliner and put the gun in his hand to his right temple. At that moment HL's mind said "it doesn't matter whether "I" pull the trigger or not - because...

Re: My favorite song of all time

Excellent choices. What about your favorite French song(s) ?

Re: Are we insane ?

As I was reading Einstein's quote, it occurred to me that it has seldom been applied to "spiritual" matters. Certainly, I had not myself made the connection until recently. As I made the connection, I shared it on the forum. (But, it had not been on my mind before, nor is it an overarching concern (...

Re: Are we insane ?

I have given up ... but I could be wrong. Another metaphor I heard lately is that our inner core has been surrounded by a huge glacier. The glacier will not melt of its own accord, yet melting it is not a short affair. This implies the primacy of time, effort and perseverance. Is this a fallacy ? Th...

Re: Are we insane ?

Does it simply seem to be so, or is there a different perspective or state that is not swinging between sorrow and happiness, as enlightened masters claim. Not sure about the end of sorrow, we are still human and sorrow is a natural emotion - it comes from loving. I would rather have sorrow with lov...

Re: Are we insane ?

Very clever point. Will discussion of the dilemma lead to a different strategy which might lead to a different result ? A sane person, presumably, will adjust the strategy based on the results obtained. Yet certain strategies require patient and dogged perseverance to yield any results. One could qu...

Are we insane ?

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein For example, trying those things that are supposed to lead us to enlightenment ... How many times does it take for us to realize the insanity of our endeavours ? The end of seeking seems to be the fin...

Re: Are all those emotions really yours?

Great quote ! Centering is when you close those energetic ‘openings’ and bring your energy back to you. It’s essentially using focus and mindfulness to become what what Eckhart Tolle would call ‘present’. This is a state where you are profoundly aware of yourself and your own feelings; where the inn...

Re: Science, Sex and Spirituality

Thank you so much for the link. it seems to be a very well-researched article. It is a bit long though ... and I am not sure I got the main point. There is no conclusion, summary, or abstract. Can you summarize it for us, if you have read the whole thing ? I mean what new insights did you get from t...

Re: Who is the creator?

Hmmm... There is something that seems to be created ... out of matter, into different shapes and forms. Yet no one is coming forth to take credit for all that. Except if you believe a few prophets like moses and mohammed and jesus who all came from the same place (arabia/judea). Their creator god so...

Re: What if WE are the FLYERS ?

Thanks for your insightful comments, Jen. I was reading about the neutrino lately, and it seems that it can pass through matter very easily (you might need miles of lead) ...apparently, this is because the neutrino is 'neutral' in terms of electric charge ... since it does not have charge, it is not...

Re: What if WE are the FLYERS ?

It's a bit of a jump (to the left, and then a step to the ri-i-i-i-ight... ahem- sorry about that) but an interesting hypothesis UBA. Reading that link interesting things resonated for me on an energy level, but then you were thinking the reverse of it. Understood. I am thinking "outside the box" t...
