First of all my friend, you need to ask how are you not enlightened. If your answer is:

I am enlightened in everyway... then one conclusion can be made:

You are not enlightened....

First of all that "sheep" reference was an example. Anyway, that statement you just made. I believe it was:

Save it.

Why? Are you not willing to hear othersides? I assume not, because this whole time I have been talking to a brick wall I guess. Two brick walls. But its all good...lol...

Those who say they will spread truth, LOOK AT ME WORLD, type of people... Only want attention and spread false knowledge. Those who protect them, well they have fallen into the same trap that have snared many. Mind constriction, mind control, and a false sense of knowledge.

There is no such thing as ego.
There is no such thing as enlightenment.
There is no such thing as awakened.

In response to both of you:

You do not understand, you do not want to understand, and worst of all you think you understand.

Only a fool would slay a thousand scarecrows and claim that he had defeated an entire army.

Battling imagined attributions are great false achievements.



You do not understand, you do not want to understand, and worst of all you think you understand.


I understand your ego defense of not willing recognizing those who have gained experience that you have not yet gained. It doesn't want other people to understand more than you, much less what you understand.

We understand that it is at first difficult to do. It takes courage - something that the ego does not have. You must look into your true self to find it.

When you shed the cloak of ignorance, others become mirrors of the self.

I used to wear the same attire, my friend - but now the cloak of ignorance and the shoes of self-deception adorn you.... separating you from the world. To take off the cloak is a choice, but the shoes will wear off with more steps.

You keep speaking of our ego. What about your ego that has you head swollen so far above everyone else’s that you can’t even fathom that your enlightenment isn’t all to enlightened. Your EGO is denying you the chance to process what we are saying. Your Society is just as full of it as anyone else claiming to have achieved complete enlightenment and refuse to attempt to learn anything further.

You have your views and you really believe that they are the truth. Well, to you they are the truth. I am not one to say that I know the truth and here it is. That is, if I may use your words IGNORANT no one knows the ultimate truth. Personally if I did know the ultimate truth
I wouldn’t be so condescending to the lower mind state as one would assume that what ever was being said by the ENLIGHTENED would be a crock because they are so full of themselves.

First of all this is too easy. The fool did defeat an army, a thousand scarecrows is an army. So he did defeat an army.

Not sure how.



I understand your ego defense of not willing recognizing those who have gained experience that you have not yet gained. It doesn't want other people to understand more than you, much less what you understand.


We went over this before friedn, you do not know me and you do not understand me. You have knowledge of me, but not an understanding. Its simple psychology. Stop saying Ego, the ego does not control the person. Infact I doubt their really is such a thing as a true ego, but you might be the closest I have ever seen...



We understand that it is at first difficult to do. It takes courage - something that the ego does not have. You must look into your true self to find it.


The ego is not the person! It does not not control the person. Your understanding of psychology is flawed, really flawed... Perhaps it takes something very different from courage....



When you shed the cloak of ignorance, others become mirrors of the self


I do not wear a cloak, never have. Infact I do not think anyone wears cloaks anymore... mirrors of the self? Please..... If this is the mirror of the true you, put it away... or cover the mirror....



I used to wear the same attire, my friend - but now the cloak of ignorance and the shoes of self-deception adorn you.... separating you from the world. To take off the cloak is a choice, but the shoes will wear off with more steps.


What attire do I wear? You do not know... Even metaphorically you have no bloody idea. And when in the world did shoes become deception, I actually find them comfy.

Again step off your bloody pedestal and talk to us. Perhaps create a new thread..

I am really enjoying your thoughts in this thread, and am enjoying the "debate".

I do have a question please.

You stated "The ego is not the person! It does not not control the person. "

I agree that the ego is not the person, but the next line has me confused.

I believe that the ego does control the person (mostly) and it appears that is what you are saying but the "not not" has me a bit confused.

Could you please clarify what you are saying??

Thank-you very much.

As a side note, I thought that I was going to be reading a flamefest here but instead have found it very thought provoking.

Kudos to all that have participated

I think what he is saying if you are a slave to your ego then it controls you. But if you are in control of your ego then your thoughts are clear. I could be wrong.

This is my understanding as well.

It's just the first time I read the post I didn't see the "not not" just "not"
and as such the meaning was completely different.

It wasn't until I went to reply that I noticed the difference.

Of course you are not sure.

As you project false attributes onto me and knock down your own creations of the mind, you believe that you have accomplished something... when you have only been bringing death to your own transient creations.

The ego is powerful, is it not?

The Society? Dear me, don't you know you're in grave danger? Whenever there is a mass there is a prominent flaw; which in this case (as it is in most others) is Ignorance.

Ignorance abounds within the human condition, and is detected quite often when other sharers of this state of Existence are encountered. With ties, come Non-Truths - and so the hapless bearer of life is overwhelmed by a surge of complications, doubts, and ridiculous idea(l)s - all acting as stepping stones towards the fellow's probable stagnation.

It sounds as though you've entered the quagmire.

The best thing for you to do is avoid society, and go far off into what has been dubbed the 'wild' - how ironic, yes? I think you'll find that in a self-imposed isolation, your head will begin to clear, and from then on you have merely to count the days before your Resurrection to the world of simple truths and truthful searching is at hand.

Walk with Truth my brother.

you mean death to your creations. I have never contradicted myself and I have solidified my facts. You on the other hand have contradicted and liquidified your facts. Perhaps you are seeing the building blocks of a new you...



The ego is powerful, is it not?


I'm going to start ignoring this ego crap... The ego is not the bloody person. Freud while he was a brilliant s.o.b his assumptions and theories of the ego were flawed in many ways. Learn something!....



My pedestal is only as high as you have constructed it.


Your pedestal is as high as I construct it??.... I have a remark for that, but it would go against the T&C's so I will leave that be....

Again, you propose no argument. You are only solidifying the facts that I and others have stated.

I agree with AMORALUNKNOWN get out of the society, if their really is one, and think for your bloody self...

Group thinkers are not really thinkers at all, its the individual that makes the thought.

"The fool, he knows not what he does."

Friend, let me show you your own mind, once more. It appears your ego is giving you trouble looking inward. These are your words, an excerpt of your own awareness:



By the way, the ego is the person.

There is no such thing as ego.

The ego is not the person! It does not not control the person.

By the way, the ego is the person.

It does not not control the person.



Then you're ego claims that you meant what ANT4U said:


I think what he is saying if you are a slave to your ego then it controls you.


What worse ignorance than ignorance of the self?

I obviously have made some gramatical errors..lol.. I apologize, if you could not discern what I was saying..lol.. I will add the word "not" behind them now.

By the way, the ego is not the person. True

There is no such thing as ego. Possibly

The ego is not the person! It does not not control the person. True

By the way, the ego is not the person. True

It does not control the person. True




What worse ignorance than ignorance of the self?


Does that really make sense?

Wow really two people can agree on something outside of the society and it is completely wrong. Well of course because outside of the society no one is correct. I find it hilarious if someone speaks the way you have been speaking throughout this thread you can not understand what they are saying. You do realize the more you say the weaker you are becoming.

Cannot see where your ego is not a part of this. If you were truly enlightened than you should be much more humble in the way you are trying to spread the truth. But alas I will just sit here and wallow in my pit of ignorance , anyone care to join me.

I find it curious that you only mention Freud when speaking of ego and how little I know of psychology.



Again, you propose no argument.


Why should I need to when you are perfectly comfortable arguing with yourself?
