Re: How can we know there's no death

Thanks, I can't say that I've ever personally had a true handle on the way reality works, I'm actually always eager to learn more from others who are perhaps a bit further along the path than I am. I never intended to be stuck in a rigid Life is Nondual, end of, nothing more to report mentality. Pe...

Re: How can we know there's no death

hey TD. Funny that you and I joined the site around the same time and used to converse a lot back in the day. Fun times Haha true. Fun times. Non-duality to me, merely means that reality is "not two". There is ultimately one Being that takes the form of many. Granted, it's not even a "one Being"......

Re: How can we know there's no death

I'm not grasping what you are saying here in this quote above. Where are the assumptions that you are referring to may I ask? I didn't read all 29 pages of posts, but I was under the impression there was a critique that non duality can and is often taken to the extreme, where we are all one therefo...

Re: How can we know there's no death

It has been a while since I posted, but I thought I would chime in :). From my understanding so far, non-duality is only part of the story; it isn't entirely correct nor incorrect. It's only part of the picture until proven otherwise I say. Frankly, the more I reflect on it, I find that there are ma...

Re: past lives/reincarnation

Understand that perception is the key to experience. Meaning, if you view these experiences as merely 'imagination' of the experiencer, then that will be your own perspective and as a result, your own experience going forward. It's neither right nor wrong. It merely just is. Yet, only you can know ...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

Hi TD, These are very good questions. The answer is a little long because it needs quite a bit of context. First, I think it's important to clarify what we mean by the key terms you've mentioned - Truth, Ego and Mind. What are these for you? There are assumptions in the spiritual community that the...

I had a quick question.

Is interpretation also an experience?

Love,

Here's the quick answer Jack.

Yes, of course.

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

Thank you Jack, You talked about communicating to beings who have lived and/or fictional, including your Grandfather. How did you tell that they are real and from the Truth and Light, and not constructions of one's subconscious, ego or mind? I am very curious. For example, Joan of Arc had visions an...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

In my many years of being around this stuff I've come to realise (amongst other things) that every enlightenment or awakening story/claim involves two components: 1. The actual awakening or transcendent experience(s)*, and 2. An interpretation of what the experience means (and how it is described) ...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

Jack, if one is enlightened... or enlightening... who is really enlightend/enlightening? Hi Jack, further to my question above, I am curious if you can explain what is the Human-Self and God-Self? How are they related? Are they separate? Are the one or neither? How would one connect to it? You have...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

Clearly Jack 'speaks' of love but is not really 'experiencing' love ... the talk is not the walk ... this could be called 'wishful thinking' or self delusion ... well that's how it is ... Not to suggest "Jack" is this or that way, what has been interesting in this thread thus far is what and how "w...

Re: Purposely creating changes in my internal world

I see great benefit in highlighting this. I see little benefit in propagating the small and isolated Perspective that there is no person. I see this Perspective as one of Fear. Of Constriction. Of 'No'. The way of the Light is of Love. While I agree with this statement, I equally agree with the per...

Re: How do I get what I want?

Is there a formula to follow in order to achieve something or at least to know you've done your best . If you are honest with yourself, you will know when you have "done your best". There is no "formula" to achieving what you "want". If there ever was, everyone would have gotten what they "wanted" ...
