Re: You cannot stop thinking

Ah yes, you used the word "toward" the fire, not "at" the fire.

Re: You cannot stop thinking

You’re watching a log burning in a fireplace. You feel warm and cozy as you stare into the flames. You could be asking yourself how a person discovered fire. You could be thinking about humans emerging from Plato’s cave. You could be thinking of the combustible properties of trees. You could be adm...

Re: You cannot stop thinking

I find it funny when, during a conversation, a non dualist begins negating the meaning/purpose of the words being used, while using words. Yes, words are incorrect/incomplete, but are necessary (in 99.999% of cases) for Enlightenment. Show me a man who has finished with words so that I may have a w...

Re: You cannot stop thinking

Sit in a chair in a still, quiet room, for one hour. Just sit there and don't move and don't think. You will find it impossible to remain thought free for more than ten seconds. This is the equivalent of driving a car with no brakes. The only time there is PEACE (OF MIND) is when you CRASH each nig...

Re: You cannot stop thinking

Shifting Awareness to Self results in the ceasing of thought. Do or do not; there is no "try". - Yoda The Thoughtless state of Awareness cannot be approached by a doer or a do notter. There is no known state as a Thoughtless State. A still mind is like a still wind. And like a still wind there is n...

Re: The Number System as a Model of The Process of Evolution

You misunderstand.

I am saying that we have misinterpreted the meaning of numbers. They do not relate to things. Counting is an incorrect usage of numbers. It's a model/a message.

Re: The Number System as a Model of The Process of Evolution

If one were to produce the simplest model of the process of evolution, what would that be? Would it not be the number system? 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 Each progressive number arises from the "base" provided by the previous numbers, just as the emergence of a new species arises from the base of the source ...

So, again, what exactly was Ramana referring to in his alleged usage of the large “S” Self and the large “A” Awareness?

That which is looking through "your" eyes.

Realization of this is dreamless sleep and effortless thought free Awareness.

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? If there is, then here is a good opportunity to show it to us. For goo...

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.
