Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

His teaching was His stillness (no interior monologue) which was transmitted via His presence.

For those who didn't "get it", it was transmitted as succinctly as possible through words.

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

The appropriate metaphors have been provided in the previous posts. The "why" will be concluded via direct experience of what is being revealed.

Mind/thought leads simply to more mind/thought.

Find that which does not change. That is the "answer"/conclusion.

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

The point is that other than being a particularly charismatic purveyor of standard Hindu dogma (most of which is mythological nonsense), is there anything else about his teachings that truly represent something earth shattering? Your question was, what are we to make of it. Well, I keep dancin' and...

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

The fundamental process is consciousness coming back onto itself (self-awareness). There is essentially only one phenomena and it's interaction with itself is the creative force of all that is manifest. A perfect example of this process is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WS8v6jKPP68 In it, an ...

Re: I is the ONLY Religion.

All other religions are apsects of the same I The sacred energy of LIFE is both formless and form in the same instant. These two divinely sacred energies are equal and opposite forces. Can't have one without the other. I Am is an Androgynous mystical figure in unison appearing as both masculine and...

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

Most kids with two working brain cells to rub together would consider that to be a problem (and rightly so) and try to do something about it. So what are we supposed to make of it? Integration of uncorrupted equanimity into daily activities requires a period of adjustment which customarily requires...

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

_______ (This is an offshoot from an alternate thread.) My Satguru Ramana Maharshi spoke of remaining in the heart and not "going out" in awareness into thought and sensations. And apparently there were times when he felt that “going out” (like everybody else) to acquire food to keep his body alive...

My Satguru Ramana Maharshi spoke of remaining in the heart and not "going out" in awareness into thought and sensations.

Re: "The only way to investigate thought is from thought free Awareness."

Then the gravel in my drive must be a ultra, turbo-injected, fission-powered zen friggin' master: it just sits there, does nuthin', thinks nuthin', and it's been doin' that (nuthin') for years. That there gravel is 'wise'. What is being referred to is the transcenence of thought. Consciousness that...

Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

I disagree that mind (thoughts) leads to treasure. Mind is the source of delusion/illusion. My Satguru Ramana Maharshi spoke of remaining in the heart and not "going out" in awareness into thought and sensations. A nice place to visit for a mental rest but not a nice place to live. But hey, if you ...

Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

IMO, god can only exist in our minds. That is basically how the Gnostic Christian ideology states it. Do you see a god outside of you and your mind? If so, state where.

Re: The Law of Identity

Thought is an infinite self referring positive feedback loop. It needs not be infinite. A recursive search function terminates when it finds what it's looking for. The only conclusion to thought is to simply stop thinking. If one sits and watches from whence thought and sensations arise, this is th...
