Re: difficult situation

Thanks Merlin. Great post. I'm starting to understand this from a different "perspective".

Re: difficult situation

I think Merlin really summed it up well with that awesome link he posted. I think if one can KNOW what they are and KNOW that they are not part of this physical form that we as human bodies partake in, then you can get involved with any other human and actually really feel love for that situation KN...

Re: Pertaining to the "other"

There would only be two of us if there were more than one awareness Ride How are you able to validate that what you call awareness is what I call awareness, in quality and in unity ? Hey Ride. I agree with you. I can't validate it other than knowing that I am aware. The objects within my awareness ...

Re: difficult situation

why as humans do we have this need to find a partner so to speak when we are essentially all one to begin with? That's an interesting question, one that could fill an entire forum, and I am tempted to dive in to trying to compose a lengthy reply, but.... Maybe we're over thinking this to death? Wha...

Re: Pertaining to the "other"

When you stop thinking you don't stop experiencing, so without the mind there is still experience. The mind is only a tool given by evolution that humans became identified with. From my understanding at least... Thank you both for the responses. There would only be two of us if there were more than...

Re: Pertaining to the "other"

Ok, so after being caught up in thought over this subject matter last night, I think I talked "myself" into confusion. We are all one awareness, and essentially share the exact same experiences. There are multiple bodies within the physical world. However, what makes it UNIQUE for each sector of awa...

Re: difficult situation

Chippy, read Merlin's response above. That sits well with me. Aside from that, I don't think there IS an answer. As long as you can allow yourself to understand that the physical world is an illusion, why not have fun with it as Merlin says?

Re: Pertaining to the "other"

Great response. I actually posted this literally right before it all clicked for me. My classification is essentially the same. We are all awareness. Therefore we are all one. The one center of conscious awareness breaks off into multiple streams of awareness and utilizes physical bodies as the vehi...

Re: difficult situation

its the delight in playing with the form, when you are complete in yourself and have lost all needs. You can then have it all. and die into the joy of this illusion we call life, without fears
What a wonderful quote.

Re: difficult situation

One more thing I'd like to add, is there essentially any difference between the love I have for this computer desk chair I am sitting in compared to perhaps the love for another body? If there is a difference experienced by another being, I'd love to hear WHY there is a difference in their interpret...

Re: difficult situation

Thanks Merlin. You make some great points and I wholeheartedly agree that our hormones definitely drive our ambition towards finding a "partner". I'm 31 years old and I still have a very strong urges. Therefore, if we were going to embark on relationships merely for the sexual part, it would make mo...

Re: difficult situation

Thanks so much for the wonderful responses. I think it's the fact that when everything starts to make sense of "who or what I am", it's almost as if life takes care of itself. I have been pondering though the concept of relationships within merely "formed bodies and minds". Emotions are no doubt rea...

Re: difficult situation

Thanks Aloha for the response. One of the reasons I ask this is because I've been reading so many of the threads on this site and there's such incredible conversation about non-duality and I'm just starting to get the hang of this stuff and I find it fascinating. Perhaps this thread was the wrong pl...

Re: difficult situation

I wanted to get others takes on this. I've dated so many different types of people in my life and largely those I have very little compatibility with and compatibility simply does not exist with those who have completely different values and long term goals as myself. If you don't want kids or marri...

Re: thoughts

Thanks Typist. Could not agree more about focusing on the actual date rather than yourself and by date I mean the actual time spent with the other person. That's definitely something I've done in the past and has caused me much "suffering" and I'm learning. I just don't feel that the date should rev...
