Re: How do I know there is death?

I was simply implying that to talk of God is one thing, but if the mind remains full of snakes and scorpions then ones actions may very well be un-Godly. From your previous post I gathered that you had experienced resistance to your use of the word God, I was assuring you that my response was since...

Re: How do I know there is death?

Okay, 

and another thing, since you think I am among your horrific family and friends, I know you won’t enjoy reading my stuff (no offense, just something I kind of sense here) You totally missed my sense of humor ---Too bad, I am very entertaining, I doubt I take anything seriously, I have a very...

Re: A Christmas Gift

Appreciate your unique opinions and possessions. Gently embrace your needs and desires. Cherish your humanity. Treasure every bit of your life, whatever happens. Don't worry over language and names and labels. Yes dear friend Treasure, seems right to say this, no reason to 'reject' anything ... Eck...

Re: A Christmas Gift

Hello Sandy, What you say here is so wonderful, so 'unbelievable' ... Though you speak of "Christ" and "Christmas" and "God", so is this also true for non-Christians or even atheists who don't believe in God or in Christ ? ?? I love this too, Phil! I am so excited to read your post! Such a few line...

Re: A Christmas Gift

Phil, I thought about this question "can an atheist find the Truth?" ---pondered upon that a bit later and I must add something here: Clearly to me, I know that once you find your self, you will know what God Is and That God is. I believe you could get to the Truth from the position of "atheist' an...

Re: R negative feelings, even if "valid" worth hanging on to

Normally,I would go red faced and seething, but actually today i was so calm and unaffected. It was like, "i said what i wanted, she said what she wanted, what big deal?!". I was amazed by my composure and my ability to carry on with my work without even feeling slightly upset. Hello Devu, I think ...

Re: Meditation question

I have been meditating on and off for almost 4 years. Most of the time I find it a chore. Even after all this time I find it a chore. I still do it though, 20 minutes 'tops' most mornings. 95% of the time all I do is sit there, not able to focus on my breath, or a mantra or anything, and get really...

Re: How do I know there is death?

to use ET's words: forms die (as NO form is permanent) but the formless cannot die … How is the death of form known? It is apparent. Isn't it? Knowing of this death (the death of form) is as constant as the perception of time. Well all forms die, this can be seen all around, nothing is permanent: p...

Re: What Am I - What Are You?

I find the question , Who am I, who are you, useless anyway. Don't you? All the people you know say that they are their body when you ask them who are they? :lol: Hello Gen, Yes, Eckhart Tolle has evidenced oftentimes that only suffering can lead you into this questioning on ourself, on our deep na...

Re: How do I know there is death?

How do I know there is death? My answer is that I do not know there is death. I simply do not know there is death. I cannot know death. I simply cannot know death, knowing death is impossible. I cannot experience death, it is impossible. How can I know death? If I could know death, I would not be d...

Re: How do I know there is death?

rg wrote: Says Ramana - "Deathlessness is our real nature." This is so true. To me, one perspective of enlightenment is realizing that you don't die. There is death, of course, but 'you' don't die.
