Re: No Birth - No Death - No Death - No Birth.

The absolute can't be experienced, that's just a belief system. It's not an experience. You're IT. But one must use language to communicate despite its limitations. Then why do you keep agreeing with DAM (in case you aren't DAM's alt nick), who keeps talking about hallucinations, projections, dream...

Re: Why is pride a sin?

Is it impossible to celebrate your competence, ingenuity, perseverance and hard work, without the extreme of calling it "greatness"? Or, it might lead to the courage to try something more difficult. It's good to give credit to others, and luck; it's fine not to talk about your own merit; it's even ...

Re: No Birth - No Death - No Death - No Birth.

Life is a self sustaining reciprocal infinite feedback loop. Birth and Death are Illusions they are conceptual appearances and disappearances and reappearances of infinity. In illusion, life may be long or short or neither. In reality life is endless and beginningless. Birth and Death are just the ...

Re: The Wrong God

Ramu, I can understand that point of view. I have read better explanations of it; better because they employ more creative vocabularies. Isn't there an Eastern term for what you call consciousness. Or may be some poetry or a picture? Other terms are Source, God, Being, True Self, Brahman, The Absol...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Stop making up all these characters in your mind weirdo...awareness does not need a character to be what it is ..it just is. If you insist on inventing a character ..then ask your own imaginary friend for the answers...I’m sure they won’t be able to help you either. Who are you talking to? Who ever...

There is only ever self speaking to itself. If that were true, then I could ask you to shut the fuck up with all the noise you create, and you would do so. :lol: There is absolutely no reason for rudeness on this forum.

Re: Consciousness is not the property of a Brain.

So is it true to say : I am not conscious but a manifestation of consciousness ? As the body / mind that is me is an illusion as only consciousness itself is real I only think I am real because the illusion is so powerful it can be hard to deny This may very well be true but as I said before it is ...

Re: Perception and Consciousness

I think that I need more time to become familiar with the concept of consciousness and what it really is But I am becoming more detached over time which is compatible with the notion of all reality as illusion Consciousness, the very thing you are can be thought of as the Empty Container.

Re: Perception and Consciousness

Listen, you are the one that says consciousness is an emergent of the brain, so what are we talking about now? the brain or consciousness? If I hit you over the head with a baseball bat you will become unconscious. So I reasonably suspect your consciousness and your brain are interlinked... Of cour...
