Myths

Mind is the mother imagination – imagination is the mother of myths. Myths are sustained by belief. The lifespan of myths depends on the faith of their beholders. In order to survive, myths devise supporting myths, or update their terminologies. Thus genesis turns into genetics, god into big bang an...

Re: self-denial

The Self in discussion is analogous to Atman. Acording to "Berclay Centre", Atman is a person’s true self, which is infused with or is entirely coterminous with the universal spirit of Brahman, thus lying beyond the phenomenal, changing reality we perceive. It is vaguely similar to the Western conce...

Re: self-denial

One cannot change oneself – but one can realize oneself. ... You can realize yourself and still totally rewire your thinking (change yourself). These are different issues. Realizing yourself is quite the change too actually. i agree, one can change the frameworks that define & confine Oneself - Sel...

self-denial

The notion of changing oneself is self-denial and most common in Dualism, because of its presumption, that the viewpoints which relate its manifestations, are having different time/space positions. A misconception that leads – due to the count...

Re: proposition (1)

All our deeds, emotions, thoughts, creeds – and whatever else we are trying to relate ourselves with – are expression of Consciousness which exercises its possibilities in order to realise itself. You may look at it this way: The following is based on the supposition that unity comprises multiplici...

Re: Consciousness and Duality.

Long seeking it through others,
I was far from reaching it.
Now I go by myself;
I meet it everywhere.
It is just I myself,
And I am not itself.
Understanding this way,
I can be as I am.

There is no known original causer of the cause & effect phenomena because only phenomenal unoriginal effects are known.. aka ideas about what is thought to be happening but not happening.

Re: proposition (1)

Mind can imprison as well as liberate itself. Liberating is an act of Will & Love and can thus bring about Selfrealisation.

Re: proposition (1)

How about:

mind accumulates and transforms the manifestations of Consciousness - Self is the coordinate and core of mind
