HL -

Wow, is that ever true. It's too bad that, apart from the pretty pictures and avatars, it's the only tool we have in this forum...kind of like trying to build a skyscraper with paper mache.

Namaste, Andy

I feel the same way sometimes. But ANE and PON both blew me away anyway. That must have been the stillness (and truth??) that resonated with me as those books are only a collection of words either. I also find myself resonating with some writings more than with others. It probably depends as much on the writings as on the readiness to realize the message behind it.

have a great day

Yes Andy - or, perhaps, like trying to use illusion to dispel illusion .
Experience says a more direct path is through ignorance, confusion, negation and abandonment.
This forum is very useful for negation - in displaying what Awareness and Reality(Truth) is not.
Great entertainment though! :D
Being "old" and knowing "nothing" is a great gift.

Hey Hermitloon,
I really enjoy the sense of mystery you have in all your posts.
Do you have a favorite tecaher, or mentor in your life?
Thanks

Are you speaking for the masses ol great Merry Angel :wink: . I prefer to keep it as a mystery and hear from the man himself. Appreciation goes without saying

Have a nice day
Peace

My "favorite teacher" is silent solitude - usually about 23hrs. a day.

The "other hour" is not "for" anything - and usually consists of interacting with people(through language) - whenever that arises. Some days that does not arise at all. "One hour" is a guesstimate of the average.

Seriously ? Do you interact with people during the other 23 hours. What do you do with all that time? What happened to your blog its not working.
Muchas Gracias

The blog works fine - I just clicked on it.
There is no interaction with people (through language) during the "other 23 hours".
"I" don't "do anything with all that time" - Doing happens - making things, fixing things, eating, long walks, just sitting and observing, exploring, etc. - whatever arises that seems to need doing.
A Human Experience arises in Pure Awareness that is characterized by doing in fearless, conflictless, joyfull Peace.
That's about it.
