You cannot give up yourself to have everything but until you realize you are n0thing, you won't have everything.

I said I would give up nothing. I did not say I would give myself up.

Again I said I would give up nothing which is the only way you could possibly give me everything.

But you were born n0thing (Zero) and will leave as n0thing (Zero), it's during this that you THINK you are sumthing (One). Sew as I said, you cannot give up yourself, it's everything else you have to give up but until you realize that, you won't succeed in achieving ultimate happiness.

Here's the math:

Time:

Past = Negative
Future = Positive
Present = Neutral (Zero)

You don't have a choice when it comes to Time, the Present is where all happens but dew to Time itself, you don't realize the Present until it's the Past, for Time must transpire. Then when you combine the Present with You, the Other Zero, you get this equation:

0 + 0 = One = WE

That's the true Equation of Oneness and once you figure that out and live it, you will be the Truth.

I've seen what is behind the curtain.

We are puppets. All of us.

Pinocchios and Pinocchiettes.

The strings were never cut.

The contradictory nature of the Real.

Up is Down and Down is Right and Right is Backwards.

Then there's ...
If you always do you you always did, then you'll always get what you always got

For me, I'm not giving up anything for a re-try...that's ridiculous IMO.

You also can't start the next chapter until you turn the page, which requires change via motion.

Makes no sense.

Giving up yourself to find yourself is one way of looking at it.

Actually, it's the giving up of one self for the true self, that's the key.

But.....buttuglytoad, you have culled the masses via a flute that most don't understand.

Dew yew kno wat ywer point iS with this thread?

The point of this thread is to help peeps realize that their Everything is the Self of who they already are and then to realize the Self they have come to know is an illusion and once they give up that illusion, the true Everything awaits them.

Would have to give up fear and the impression that there's never enough, but I can't seem to stop smoking no matter what I do, so I guess I'm a wimp.

Try Sassafras Tea. It will curb the nicotine withdrawl and you can quit.

Ribbit

Never tried that but . . .

Ribbit

Really? Can you also smoke sassafras?

The truth is not a philishophical 'belief'. It is the one truth. When it is realized there is peace that surpasses all understanding. Only the truth can set you free from the torture of confusion.

I beg to differ. Once the truth is known there is no peace.

That is why the truth is hidden.

Then you haven't made it back to Kansas yet, Dorothy.

There's more to this than who's/what's behind the curtain.

Presuming that you are as literate as intelligent... "one self" as opposed to "one's self" or "oneself" ...
Are you willing to elaborate?
If so - Thanks in advance.
