Tarot Card Readers

In my experiment with Life, I have been to a few Tarot Card Readers. On the street where I live, there are two Readers. One is female who's set up is one block from me, and another is male over ten blocks away. I went to the female one over a year ago. All I got was that I would be very successful i...

Re: The Ego's Relationship to Success

:oops: I put too much emphasizing on the level of consciousness. There are generally four fundamental influences on free choice of a human being: 1. Awareness, the field of Infinite ALL. 2. individual awareness of Awareness, individual level of consciousness. 3. Ego, "a portion" of Awareness denying...

Re: The Ego's Relationship to Success

Ego manifests differently at different levels of consciousness. The scale of consciousness is termed Jacob's Ladder by some ancients. Mosaic of egoic behaviors generally reflect different individuals at different level of consciousness. At each level of consciousness, one may and may not be awakened...

Re: My parents........

P.S. Tony-S-Ma: I never considered the commandment of Honor Your Parents in a conscious way. Could Moses have meant, "Yes, your parents have caused you pain, you may be more conscious of God now, but still...honor them?" Hmmmm..... I am a Chinese born in China. I rebelled against many Chinese tradi...

Re: Insomnia

Your awareness will be fed by the energy of the painbody, when you look at the painbody.
Your painbody will get smaller and smaller, the brighter it is looked at.
The light of consciousness disperses all illusive darkness. There is no darkness, but the absence of light.

Catalyst

In the energy version of awakening business, catalyst is crucial. Many have been awakened by ET because he is the right catalyst for them. Before one is awakened, one is functioning at a lower energy level. A catalyst person is one who functions at a relative higher energy level. The infusion of the...

Re: Can we agree that "I" and "me" DO exist?

self-awareness is a potential within Awareness. Each of us is a manifestation of this potential. After experimenting with Awareness for a while, whether "I" and "me" do exist becomes insignificant. Contradicting positions co-exist within all possible thoughts. Positionality is a functional requireme...

Re: Isn't Enlightenment Really Just a Brain Trick?

Science/intellectual inquiries may erroneously put carriage before the horse. Logic and reason go both ways. If one drops the understanding that cause and effect work all the time, one's whole world changes within. Awakening changes one's brain. The observational conclusion as an understanding can s...

Re: My parents........

This may be out of place. In traditional Chinese Culture, honor one's parents is the highest virtue one may acquire. Perhaps, born in Western Culture, learning such virtue is not part of the lesson in Life. One of my personal regrets in this life is that I did not understand honoring my parents unti...

Re: Awareness of Chinese Tea

Peaceman, You made my day. Not all efforts are useless or wasted. It fills one with joy when unexpected return happens after a long trip with Awareness. In comparison, winning a debate, or solving a Math problem become little child's plays. Short trips with Awareness are also joyous. I understand th...

Re: Why Are You Still Alive?

This is my observation: Each person starts at a certain level of consciousness. Some are content to live at the same level for rest of their lives. Some tried to function at a higher level, but eventually gave up due to the hardship of trying. Some achieved higher level by trying, and happier and co...

No you are not way off here. That is exactly what I meant. Tony missed it, as he often does because his mind is very busy Perhaps, we misunderstand each other.

Re: Awakening and marijuana

I experimented with Marijuana once, and it did not hook me into using it again, nor I hated the experience. After that, I experienced with cigarettes and found out they function similarly in putting me into more energized states. And finally I decided that I am already crazy enough, and extra stimul...

I can not help putting the word play here:

Re: Space Consciousness

I'm just wondering if "aware of being aware" is nothing more than a word play. Could we be "aware of being aware of being aware" and so on? Are we not just aware (from time to time)? - Even self-consciousness seems also to be from time to time. If one searches one's memory banks, one can only remem...
