So, who's the guy who invented this stuff?
Some chinese guy way back when thousands of years ago. Thats irrelevant to me as I have myself tasted experientially some of the things that are
discussed in the teachings, which give to me in turn significance that perhaps the section which I have not experienced, my be true.
2nd question - Why does anyone really believe that what this guy invented is actually what "life is all about" if no one (at least no one who isn't
holed up in a Tibetan cave somewhere his whole life) can ever live this specific life?
When I look around at the world & break it all down, then whats the most important and biggest grandest thing there is besides Life itself? To me it
has been Enlightenment, God, Absolute Truth. I care not to follow or do what everyone else is wrapped up in. I want to directly see behind the veil of
reality and have since then had small peeks and even remembered pre-existing prior to being here on earth.
Its all worth it for me. I feel drawn to caves, to hours/days/years of meditations and unveiling the truth within. Others are drawn to other things in
life. Why are they drawn to other things in life?
I've gone on and did just about everything there is to do and its all been empty to me, like things to do to pass time, all the while these bodies
move closer to death. My fullness comes from investigating these things and there seems to be some core center within me that Longs for and Loves the
direct experience of Absolute Truth.
How can such a rigid discipline be anything but a human construct?
Everything is a human construct. If we want to build a vehicle, we have to follow the constructs with which we live to be able to re-produce one. Same
goes for realization of the Absolute. We all live within our own rigid human constructs of mind and it takes certain discipline to pop that bubble.
Why is it that only the Homo Sapien hominid is required by "god" to completely clash against every other aspect of reality as its own proper
expression of corporeal existence?
Because we are unique compared to the rest of reality. Unless u are of the school that we are the same as a blade of grass or a bird or a skunk, yet
when a skunk becomes roadkill, we hold no funeral for it.
We pre-existed in a different state prior to being here, and when leaving here, will go back to said state. I have remembered this in my own path and
it has explained why this human body has always felt so heavy and limited and suffocating and why I, and many others, have never felt comfortable with
this place, even if we are surrounded by comforts.
What is proper expression of corporeal existence? Murders, death, rape, relativity, having children and spoiling them all the while the news comes on
and shows children in my own country who are used as sex slaves?
And to what end? Oneness with the rest of what naturally and passively became fully realized and in-tune with its own proper existential purpose?
Intune as itself Yes. But all of the Subjectivity experiences itself as separate and this is causing all the divisions and wars everywhere. I know for
sure 100% if Oneness was realized by all, it would be impossible for all the same madness to take place that is now going on.
Is the corporeal Homo Sapien that wrongly fitted to the rest of reality? And if so, then why?
We are a disease to earth. Just watch the news for a day. Why? Well that would require various perspectives to be included. My personal take is that
somewhere, somehow, something went wrong and resulted in Illusion, and yet in a sense Illusion is necessary for us to know what we've been missing.
If you always have something, you don't know what you got til its gone. Goes alot further than that, but I;d need to write a few volumes of books and
a few years worth of research to really break it all down.
Authoritarianism is a malignancy that was crafted by sick and twisted people, and it hides out most effectively within temples, churches and places of
quiet meditation. In these dungeons, it is least expected.
Authoritarianism itself is neutral. Its positions of power and the twisted ego perspective bubble that corrupts. For example a master craftsman wood
worker who is a teacher and Authority in his field. You can watch him work and you listen and learn and humble yourself because you know your
knowledge set does not equal his. He's like an artist. And yet the fact that he has the position, can completely corrupt him into many innapropriate
But there is wisdom also in places of Authority as well. There are those who do not become corrupt and remain humble and fair, though it is a rarity.
