Do you want the truth? The truth is that you are a human being, nothing more, nothing less. And as a human being you will never know the whole truth in this life.
the whole truth is something hidden that we have to seek out and there will be no Age of Aquarius, so stop looking for it.
...as long as we use words that have no direct relevance to reality, only to our perception, we will always find that experience transcends our language. Given that, there will never be an end to parables and paradoxes until/if we create a means of communication that isn't as bound to subjectivity and isn't steeped in duality.
No god or extradimensional creature is going to win my heart. They do not live in the trenches with us, and as far as I can tell, most of them have a seriously contemptuous view of humankind. Until one of them proves otherwise by offering a substantial olive branch, I have no time for them.

** yes. the demons will kick you left and right, from one baiting thought to another. keep calm, tell them to F-off. find your silent Centrality existentially, carpe diem. then "jesus" will come and say "well done my son now come with me" BEWARE !! tell "him" (another demon) to P-iss off as well. NOW you are making progress www.youtube.com...
> It is difficult to speak clearly on experience in general, much less lift the fog hovering over the line straddling reality and the products of our mind. Most tend to prefer the latter.
** yes, but Over-Truths >CAN be found, and can be written out >IF you have Determination and Wings of Power to go thru hell to find it. do you really want to ? and who will Listen anyway ? nobody on ATS haha ...

The difference is, I didn't just make a thread proclaiming my ''wisdom'' whilst berating other for theirs.
I choose to decide such things as ''mystic wisdom'' for myself rather than believing the ''quick guide'' suggested by the opinions of others.
If you want ''quick guide'' soundbites then go ahead, subscribe to them but don't even think of telling me to or suggesting the fact I choose to decide such things for myself as something to shut up about.

Through communication and play comes growth which is mutually advantageous. Everyone has something to teach me, which is a huge reason why all these mind games annoy me to no end. It is hard enough trying to understand someone else's game when they are open and honest, let alone when they are intentionally designing things to be almost incomprehensible.
People are so busy preaching nonduality that they seem to forget the paradox in that nonduality and atomism are simultaneously true.
