Okay, I'm interested in what you have to say. Spill it. What are the secrets of life?

Thank you for this excellent post/thread.
Your insights are very similar to my own, and those of many others past and present.

To anyone interested in the concept of consciousness not being produced by the brain, i highly recommend a fairly recent book by the Dutch cardiologist Pim Van Lommel: 'Endless Consciousness - A Scientific View on the Near-Death Experience'. Dr. Van Lommel is one of those rare scientists with an open mind and the guts to ask the tough questions. He conducted a remarkable prospective scientific study with around 400 cardiac arrest survivors over a 20-year period and interviewed them shortly after they were reanimated. There was an article about this study in The Lancet. His view is basically that the brain is a receiver of consciousness, much like a radio receives (and translates) radio waves. After reading this book, the concept will become much more plausible. He covers a wide range of angles on it.

I have no doubt that, in time, this will become the new paradigm. It just makes a lot more sense than the current one.


Yeah, and I wonder why a cardiologist wants to explain the brain? Leave the real science of that organ to neuroscientists. Those studies will be much more credible than any OBE anecdotes ...

exactly, but by default and conditioning in society the average person is at conflict with themselves, body fighting to maintain sole power over the mind. to answer both of you. essentially what the brain has done is to restrict the functions the spirit has access to from the control panel. this is why we do not function at our full potential. the buttons might be on the controlpad for the spirit to press. but theyre not configured to perform the command theyre labeled for. we must allow the spirit to flow into us and take charge without fighting it off. unrestrict the control panel so that the spirit has full autonomy of manning the vessel. he is a much better driver than the brain/mind-link. fear is what restricts us. fear of the unknown. without understanding our natural reflex is to fear. understanding removes the fear.

in short, we are afraid of our own potential.

You claim to be enlightened, but are still trapped in the Cartesian paradigm of body and soul ...


i am not trapped. i know where the exit door is. and how to open it. i can leave and re-enter as i choose. that's what im trying to tell everyone. please check out the other threads ive posted in and be sure to read up all my responses. i have a firm grasp on what this reality is, and a full understanding of consciousness. i live it all day every day.

basically my friend. i have hacked the matrix and solved the puzzle and the attainment of enlightenment came with it. white light and all my cup runneth over. now im telling everyone where the truth on how to free themselves could be found. i suppose you can say. the 2012 awakening IS REAL.
and it is hear now. take my words seriously. it is no joke. as you can see i am doing this for free and anonymously. why? honestly.. because i believe everyone deserves to know how to be free if they choose to and the knowledge should not be denied them. that's why im doing it.

as i have told everyone who asked. look to eastern philosophies on the chakra system, the path to enlightenment and the way of life. im just pointing ppl in the right direction. my knowledge and understanding is sound i can assure you. as i have said. i live it every day since i attained enlightenment. yes true enlightenment. it is real and attainable.

i suppose you can say. this is my testimony.

Ok, I'll bite again. Answer me this if you're really what you say you are.

What happens when an unstoppable force hits an unmovable object? It's not a physics question ...

haha good one. was that stan lee?
my answer = nothing

i cant remember what the answer thor or whoever gave

id say theyd fuse as one and cancel eachother out

edit on 7-6-2012 by 0mage because: (no reason given)


or perhaps, the force would simply move through the immovable object and continue moving on. this can be another interpretation of 'Nothing'

while the other interpretation is from a mathematical viewpoint when two equal and opposite forces collide they cancel eachother out. but on further inspection we are dealing with an object and a force for the riddle. it may well be possible that the force can move through the object without hindrance as forces do carry this characteristic

Nice set of beliefs.

I rather believe in atoms, neurons, and synapses. Once they go, the mind goes as well.

No need to belief in the spaghetti monster either, but it's a free country. Have fun.


all those function because the sprit provides the power source through the mind link. once the spirit leaves the mind link loses it's major power source. so of course it will shut down. the spirit may leave the body for a variety of reasons and the mind is what is monitored to make the decision. the mind link may report that the body is irrepairably damaged, aged or withered and tired and old. as everything of this reality is finite and subject to corruption, deterioration or death. again.. one can willfully detach from their bodies and experience their true home world if they know what buttons to push and in what sequence.

again the mind is only a link between spirit and body. thus it carries aspects of both so that it can act as a translator of communication between the two.the spirit provides power to the body through the mind link, the mind link then creates a simulated consciousness based off of the spiritual consciousness that commands the body. by only looking at the physical aspect you ignore the fantastic imaginative aspect which is a fundamental part of existence and should not be ignored.

im saying that enlightenment will guarantee that you have evolved out of the need for the flesh to sustain consciousness. you can take your chances with death. but if you're like me and like to play it on the safe side, you'd try to use your time wisely to try and figure it out before you die. it's actually a manageable truth that isnt at all complicated once you grasp the whole picture.

an independent aspect of the collective consciousness that is the energy of the universe,
(we call it the 'self') that is experiencing itself.
kind of like a baby experiencing joy,pain,fear , etc. for the first time.

deep eh!?!

peace!

The seer see itself it is all it does. It observes itself observing itself. Like the halls of mirrors where the one becomes split in many with slightly different aspect/characteristics, so can the seer observe itself and all it's aspects. It is what is happening within existence. If you go beyond being the seer and become the seen (Scene) there you are observing your essence. There is no scene (seen) without the seer, and no seer without a scene( seen). Remove the scene and all you have is 'be', which also is 'the word' or call to action that starts creation and the beginning of being. Remove the be and what you have is 'is' which lies in stillness waiting for the word 'be' to call it forth into creation. Beyond 'is' lies the void.

The words are triggers not actualities, intuitively understanding is reached, because ultimately there is no other way to know what is other than to accept that you are it. And that the 'you' is only one aspect of it.

Interesting poise, but let me put an idea to you.

The physical body is driven by the heart, not the brain. The mind that is invisible to us but forms our personality and is that "ME" in all of us is connected to this physical realm via the heart, which acts as a conduit and centre binding the physical and non-physical worlds together.

Our greater self exists ever present, but projects itself through the heart, controlling the brain and subsequently the body.

This is a reflective process so what we project into the physical realm is reflected back into the non-physical realm based on what we do here and how we interact with this world (and others).

We are emotive, empathic creatures and it is this frequency that binds us to the rest of creation (placing us under it's creator, not above it).

So literally, the state of your heart has a bearing on your being, is not too far fetched. If we are in a balanced state, we are more likely to benefit from this world and be of benefit to it.

Food for thought: Scientists have now admitted that he heart has it's own nervous system....madurasinghe.blogspot.co.uk...

Adios.

Thats just a theory....

I could talk about another one: we all came here as souls, to incarnate in human bodies, to learn lessons, to learn about values like love, compassion, acceptance, detachment, courage, strength, etc etc etc

Its a school where souls have more freedom to do as they want,they have free-will to do bad and to do good, to be selfish, to be altruistic, and with the energy generated by this duality they learn a lot.

And our human body is always luring us to be selfish, so its the soul job to resist it.

So hey i just solved the mystery of existence too...

That is just a theory, its not a bad theory, but its just another one, there are many out there, in fact, each one of us has its own...

Cheers!

Every time I hear this I think..."ok..so your saying your mind is the same as a pedophiles mind, a psychopaths or murderers or rapists mind too then? "

Really?

You cant just look at the pretty side of the tapestry....and if your going for the royal 'we' then you have to include the un-pretty too.

I believe we do have individual minds. To me, we are/ can be AS one mind but we are not just ONE mind.

Being AS one, is a HUGE contextual difference to being ONE...which for me, a survivor of the above mentioned assholes..isn't a promising prospective.

One mind. Individual brains with individual directions. The mind is all. In the mind, there is rape and murder and betrayal. But that's not your brain. You're free to make it that way if you want to. No one will stop you. No one can. You are free. But choose wisely.



Presuming that just because you are experiencing a thing for the first time, (such as mind-as-totality), makes it THE truth of and for All, is naive and can even be dangerous - in my opinion.

If you do currently believe Mind is all there is...well..I already know there will be nothing that will convince you otherwise....though it might be useful to say that at least as far as I am concerned, building a rut in that belief might dis-serve you in the longer term as belief itself, is finite.

Single "source' ideologies, much like like monotheism's, are always restrictive and temporary states. They end. Dependency on a singular viewpoint is an easy delusion to fall into and a very hard one to step out of. So I will respect your right to your current view point..I wont hold you to it..and will just say that I hope your judgment about what "All" is, doesn't see you excluding yourself from experiencing the ' what else'.

Nothing is happening.

In an ever present reality a happening is not possible as a happening assumes there was a state before the happening. This assumes there was a state of 'non presence' before 'it' happened. It never stops and never started because it never happened. To my understanding this means there is a constant state of ' is' from the point of view of all. Which is what I understand the 'I Am' to also mean. All I know is that I know nothing.

As for the question why the answer is simple.

Why? Because ( Be the cause) Be cause of what? It is...

and before you say that is wordplay whos meaning only applies to the english language look at the same questions and answers in Spanish and Swedish below

Porque? Porque (Forwhat? For What) (It is for 'what) Que es? Es... (what is ? Is...)

and in Swedish

Varför? Därför (Whyfor? There for) Där för vad? Det är.... For what? 'It is'

To beable to say the words 'I am' i must be seeing - I must be aware of, know of, apparent (appearing) 'other'.
Prior to the 'I am' is pure awareness. The void where no thing appears to be seen.
The void of no thing.
The void of nothing produces images and sees those images.

The images are fleeting but the human mind builds this nothing into a whole story book. A whole pretend world full of things. The mind makes it look and feel like it matters. Amazing.
