enigma wrote:How odd. I would say all those positives you listed can be driven entirely by illusion, and almost invariably are.
The positives that most people experience are generally driven by illusion.
Not necessarily though.
There is the possibility of positive without illusion, I called that 'true positive' above.
The negatives are ALWAYS
driven by illusion.

The world is non-dual - that's where we live!
Illusions only create the appearance
enigma wrote:What I referred to as nondualistic Love, Joy, Peace is not the positive half of dualistic feeling. They are conceptual pointers to a non-feeling feeling.
enigma wrote:From the 'nondual perspective' positive and negative feelings are transcended.
You call it non-dual perspective after I called it non-dual living, and yet you say you don't know what that is - curious!
enigma wrote:When you watch a sad movie and sadness arises, you don't call this negative.
Being affected by movies is an indication of the ease with which one gets caught in illusions.
enigma wrote:When you go bungee jumping and fear and excitement arise and 'calm' is nowhere to be found, how do you know whether to call it positive or negative so that you can know whether you are doing the nondual living thingy?
Haven't been bungee jumping, but excitement has arisen without fear and the associated illusions generating it.
enigma wrote:Have you ever caught yourself clinging to the heartache of lost love? If so, are you clinging because it is positive or negative?
No, love cannot be lost.
Clinging to any ideas or remembrances is illusion in action.
enigma wrote:Even in your dualistic living, you're uncertain how to categorize feelings.
Was there some 'edge' experienced when writing this?
If so, what was that caused by?
