Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

What will your transcendental state do for the little girl which you cannot do now? You put up her picture. What do you plan to do about her right now? Well, the first thing I would do for her and others like her is to not promote a philosophy that suggests that not only was the three or four years...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

And that (I believe) is how insignificant our present situation is compared to the transcendent situation that awaits us. Well I agree that our present "reality" is insignificant. What I'm saying is that I don't think there is a situation awaiting us. Then you are promoting a form of nihilism and o...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

You appear to be saying the human mind is a replicate of gods mind.... And so I interpret what you've said... as being each individual mind is identically at one with one continuous whole energy that expresses itself as this universe. That we are the central mechanism by which god sees each one of ...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

However, I personally believe that a wondrous eternal destiny awaits each of us - one that does not end with a re-absorption of our individual consciousness into some kind of homogenous state of “Oneness.” Why do you believe this? Is it primarily because it's what you want to believe? Perhaps. But ...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

...please describe as best you can exactly what this unborn awareness is “aware of” when it resides in its incorporeal form? It's aware of thought. What is aware of thought?

Re: The Futility of Reason

I now go by the credo that if someone criticizes me, I don't straight away accept the criticism to be true. But I definitely ask myself, "why did he say it?" If another person says the same thing to me, then I look to myself because now the same thing has been verified by someone else so I have to ...

Re: THE RELIGIONS – THEIR FUNDAMENTAL MISTAKE

The root cause of duality is that you sensed your own Beingness (existence). Actually, the root cause of duality lies in the fact that because you have indeed sensed your own “Beingness” (as in the Cartesian “I AM-ness” ), you then realize that your body, other bodies, other minds, the earth, the s...

There is only one true religion and that is ONENESS... or NONDUALITY...
Without a doubt, the concept of “ONENESS” sounds very warm and fuzzy.

However, what does it suggest about the status of one’s consciousness and personal self-awareness after the death of the body?

Re: The Futility of Reason

Nick,

Would you please stop mixing your comments in with my comments with no clear distinction between who said what.

It completely muddles the conversation.
