WHY do you continually get me WRONG 'lacewing'? (I ask this from the perspective that I already KNOW. I am just want 'you' to SHOW what 'your answer' WILL BE).Lacewing wrote: ↑Sat Sep 14, 2019 6:27 amAnd here you are telling us what to do and what not to do.Age wrote: ↑Sat Sep 14, 2019 6:11 am The last thing, I found, that a person wants when they are 'down' is to be told things like; "You should not feel that way and it is better if you do this and do that".
When 'you', human beings, start REALLY Listening to each "other", then you will move forward, instead of moving down that downward spiral 'you' are ALL heading now.
But I am NOT telling any one here "what to do and what not to do".
Move "forward"? Don't move down the downward spiral we are ALL heading now? Ah yes, you think there is a single, linear path in our vast Universe!
I NEVER told any one to move forward. I just said what WOULD HAPPEN, IF you start doing some thing. I do NOT care if you stay or even move backwards.
I also just said where you ARE ALL heading now. I NEVER said any thing like what you propose; "Don't move down the downward spiral". You can ALL keep going down the downward spiral if that is what you Truly want. This also is NOT telling any one what to do nor even where to go.
I am just saying what I observe and SEE.
Can you observe and SEE the difference?
I use my words in a very specific way.
And I think it would be impossible for you to find in my writings anywhere where I have even suggested that there is a "single, linear path in our vast Universe". In fact I have said the very opposite. But if you would like to direct us to WHERE I have said what you think or believe I have, then I would be the first one to congratulate you.
You have been accusing me of this "single path" accusation from just about the outset of our discussions. I also KNOW WHY you think and even believe that I have this view. As I have said continuously, I write in a way so that things appear to be the case, but on closer inspection and with hindsight what I have REALLY been saying becomes clear. I write this way, to SHOW with examples from "others", WHY it is better to ALWAYS REMAIN OPEN and ask clarifying questions, INSTEAD of ASSUMING and BELIEVING things first.
'lacewing' you can keep misconstruing my words and taking me out of context for as long as you like, Or, you could start asking me clarifying questions and start to begin to understand where I am coming from and what it is that I am actually saying and meaning. Because the way you are going now, you are getting deeper and deeper and further and further away from understanding me.Lacewing wrote: ↑Sat Sep 14, 2019 6:27 am Sure... that makes a LOT of sense! Let's all get on THE path because there's SOMEWHERE TO GO... different and better than where we are, and we should GO THERE. We're evidently not where we're supposed to be, nor doing what we're supposed to be doing... according to Age. The Universe is just a big mess and Age can tell us how it's supposed to be!
For example; 'I' can even tell 'you' how the Universe IS if you like, and not just how It is "supposed to be". Or 'you' can continue on how you are now, when this is written, and just keep ASSUMING and BELIEVING things, which are so far from what I am saying that this really is humorous to watch and behold.
Either 'you' can remain the same. Or 'you' can become Truly OPEN to finding out things ALL by yourself. The choice is yours and yours alone.
So far you have got me so far wrong that you accuse me of using words in what I say here that I have NEVER even used.
