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

His epiphany: Back when first interested in Sri Ramana Maharshi, I read that when he was 16 or so, he lay down on the floor of the family house when alone and while lying motionless, he wondered what will happen when he dies, which led to the enquiry, who dies? Looking within he found the answer rig...

Re: Music

How Come My Dog Don't Bark When You Come Around* is a funny tune with lots of great one-liners, but after the hook the tune gets a bit nasty with suggested violence.

Re: How can I reach certainty about some things and obtain peace of mind?

“Tuva or Bust!” Like suffering, freedom is a state of mind. In principle, Tuva or Bust! is the quest for certainty, a quest made possible by a free state of mind. Suffering is a state of low peace of mind. Freedom is a state of high peace of mind. Invention is the mother of necessity (cell phone). ...

Re: You never happened.

Infinity only happens once which means Infinity never happens. That can't possibly be true. That is a head scratcher, seeing as how infinity is a perpetual happening. Perhaps the understanding lies in unseen events on the near horizon of time. Then again, to account for every potentiality, perhaps ...

Re: You never happened.

The Awareness in you is the same Awareness in me. No explanation can ever suffice. There is no logical foundation for your claim. How about independent, simultaneous, identical scientific breakthroughs? Awareness discovers flight through this person here, and this other person over there, at the sa...

Re: Power and the Public Good

Of course the snowflakes being indoctrinated in universities as well as many regular citizens have no concept that the society being advertised is pure fantasy and supporting it just invites a surrender to "power" in whatever form.

Re: Interesting insights about love.

“It is only when you begin to understand that if you and I are truly in love, if I go to the place in me that is love and you to the place in you that is love, we are ‘together’ in Love. We start to understand that what love means is that we are sharing a common state together. That state exists in...

Re: Interesting insights about love.

“Love is the morning and the evening star that shines on the cradle of the babe. Hear ye sinners, love is the inspiration of poets and philosophers. Love is the voice of music. I’m talkin’ about divine love, not carnal love.”

Re: What Book Changed Your Mind?

Similar means broad strokes. It doesn't mean corresponding to every detail. The Beatles are telling people who want revolution (inexperienced young people) that they don’t know what revolution entails, which is a similar message to just desiring the view of revolution without actual revolution.

Re: "NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS", HERE'S THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION

An opinion is conditioned knowledge.

Life or death is a primal fact independent of conditioned knowledge.
