You must be joking. Serious? Well be careful not to take your 'satori' too seriously.

I figured you'd be laughing your asss off, or maybe it hasn't sunk in all the way yet. Not that you HAVE to be funny don't get me wrong..

Hi Omega,

You say most of us are kind - I would beg to differ.

The reason the world suffers is that most people are not kind, just greedy.


It doesn't matter if they are greedy or not.
They are trying to have a good time.
Poor fellows.

Well, go go go!

Good luck with your writing.

I, too, am a writer.

You just showed however, with that statement, that you don't have what he "got".

Don't take that the wrong way, 99.9999% agree with you.

Everyone would be kind if they got this thing he got.

And at core, they are kind, at least in potentia. Their problem? The lack of kindness in others and in the world at large. It's a judgement against, perpetuating the problem.

Thanks for the advice.
Sometimes I take it too seriously, just lose myself in it, you know how it goes.
But mother Earth is always there to make me remember.

I know, I'm the stupidest of them all. Gotta keep reminding myself all the time.

That is the correct answer.


That pointless point.

Why even ask?

See, I'm not even paying attention.

Those who are greedy are that way because they have not yet realized their true essence.
If only more people realized that everything they sought after was actually inside of them all along.

Too many people try to find themselves and happiness in possessions, through other people, through job titles, ranks, religions... all of which are temporary things.
The power within, however, is not temporary...and is the building block for all that is, and ever was. Once harnessed... suffering, greed, and negativity are gone with the wind...and peace is obtained.

And we've all got that... just too few people realize it...

-edit-
Damn, by the time I replied, more posts appeared..oh well! Hahah.

That you don't take yourself too seriously is another point in your favour.

People, I honestly suggest questioning the crap out of this guy, to see what his newfound "got it" awareness is about, but don't try to prove anything or compare yourself, just drill him and see if there's a chink in his light.

This is what they used to do way back in the days - I'm reading a book right now called "The Way of Zen" by Alan Watts.

It's interesting to see this thread pop up, as I was meditating earlier attempting to "have" a satori, which doesn't work!


I'm a pretty smart cookie, but I still need to get my mind sufficiently trapped to get to the end of it - the end of what? There is no mind, I cannot find it, or my "self" - I must keep reminding myself that I'm completely lost and know nothing - it's hard to do, this Buddha enlightenment thing - there I go again, thinking it's a doing - I'll get there - op I did it again, since you can't strive or seek it somewhere that is not here now. It will come to me, whatever that means, but it will, I have faith.

"The Way of Zen" by Alan Watts - I highly recommend it Buddha-boy.

All the time I see "The Powers that Be" being treated here in ATS as if it was something horrendous, monstrous, unbelievable. Isn't that ironic?


Or I just missed something?

Faith is all you need.

Stop trying (there is no try, there is only do or do not - got that from Yoda), start enjoying.

Omega, have you received my message I sent you? Sorry to ask through this topic, but I was just curious.

As far as satori's are concerned... I think you have experienced it without even knowing.
That's the beauty of it...

Don't get too carried away now, don't be boastful and be very careful not to make anyone else wrong.

I'd suggest stepping back and spending some time with this prescious thing, it's sacred.

Actually.
I knew it before I experienced.
Now that I experienced it, I don't know anymore.

Thank you very much for that. Something's happening with me I think, so much so other people are breaking out in satori, maybe even some impacted by some of my writings where it's all connected.

But you CAN tell when they are questioned, precisely whether it's valid or not, very quickly. This kid seems to have it from what I can tell.

And if I can make that evaluation correctly, then hey, that WOULD mean I have it too, and can even play the role of "Master"!

I was actually referring to Omega's post about trying to meditate to obtain satori.
But, hey, that works too!

Yes, this person who says "That is the correct answer" is just another person trying to take control.
What a load of crap.
