Maybe you could consider that there is nothing wrong not doing anything ... ?? As Blaise Pascal said (also quoted by Eckhart Tolle in one of his talks): “All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” Learn to be quiet, I cannot say it enough ...[/quote] There...

What Are Your Thoughts On This Quote?

Hey guys what are your thoughts on this quote? The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral, which always is as it is. I hear this quote and it makes so much se...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

Find that Child again and you won't have to worry about others, you will just know for your self and do what is right for you. And really YOU are the only one who matters. It is all within you, alone and solitary. Like Jen says, I won't won't worry about you, you'll be fine, of course you will. And...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

I'm only mentioning christianity because my uncle says that there is an overwhelming amount of evidence to support that it exists. He even went as far as to say that if I could find one thing that doesn't make sense about the bible then he would completely drop his religion. In Kantian ethics it de...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

I was only using the stabbing in the heart as an example. If someone shoots me in the head based off of the system of language our society has developed I would DIE. Maybe not in an eternal sense but the word DIE points to an experience that is absolutely real. I knew this but basically I was just ...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

When looking from the absolute perspective there is no right or wrong, the whole world is Maya or illusion. However, have you heard the saying: The world is illusion, Brahman (or God) alone is real, the world IS Brahman. So, to look only from the absolute view is not the full picture, as well as lo...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

Wow, Danny, I forgot that you were 16! Wow, you are one smart fella. And no wonder there is some confusion. You are 16! Give yourself some time, and pat yourself on the back now for all your curiosity and interest. Btw...why aren't you in school? Have you done your homework? :) Yes treasure sadly t...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

Dannydawiz, if you don't mind me saying, your ego is leading you down the garden path and won't be bringing you to that Meadow anytime soon. Sorry but the more I read, the more I empathize with your uncle. Do you want spirituality or religion soup? If you're not keen on Christians why do you keep q...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

Regardless if god exists or not I feel inclined to study the bible. The worlds largest religion is Christianity and the bible is one of the worlds most important books I feel. The reason why I feel hesitant as to say whether god exists or not is because of this documentary my Uncle showed me called ...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

Would you like to be raped? No I wouldn't. Why? The experience to me seems like it would be unpleasant. What is your point? Is this not the answer to your question? You do not want to be raped, so you would not wish this to happen to others. Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you. ...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

It is said that one of the guardians of the temple of truth is Paradox. Paradox is guaranteed to confuse those who are not ready for the truth. Paradox means “a statement or proposition that, despite sound reasoning from acceptable premises, leads to a conclusion that seems senseless, logically una...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

You can't get to truth through the reasoning process, as Maire noted. The human mind can't grasp it. We can't know truth as an object, we can only be truth. If someone stabbed me in the heart I would die. That is an ABSOLUTE TRUTH. Just like a function where one x has one y outcome. "Well, this per...

Re: Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

Thank you so much webwanderer.
Would you mind if I asked your name?

What you said has given me a calm and I thank you for that because I can finally go to sleep.
I'll give a more detailed response tomorrow. It's 12AM and I have to wake up early.

I really do appreciate your generosity.

Cognitive Dissonance & Morality

Hello everyone. After having a conversation with my uncle yesterday on Easter I began to notice that there is quite a bit of conflict within me. He asked me the question, Do I think rape is right or wrong? I answered the question by saying that rape is neither wrong nor right. Rape is simply rape. I...

Re: Someone help me please...

I'm trying to learn is how to be enthusiastic about activities in the present moment. It just isn't as simple as acceptance however... Acceptance feels like a much more simple choice. On the other hand enthusiasm and joy cannot be faked. They are sincere states of mind that are real. I've felt them...
