Here is a good video which points to the one truth.
youtu.be...
Peter Brown is great at pointing directly at reality.

Is 'this' all there is? This present moment, this nowness, this isness?

youtu.be...

So, then, we should all stop seeking that which does not exist?

"To be or not to be, that is the question".

Do you like what Peter Brown has to offer?

To be or not to be? Are you or are you not?

Again, he is speaking his truth. As he stated, "nobody knows".

I am then when I am seeking I still am, but in a different way.

If you answer the question honestly we might make some progress. You say it takes a crowbar to get any sense out of me but when I am in communication with you and we are getting somewhere you retreat.
It is ok if you want to carry on the pretence but I thought you where honestly looking for the truth.


YOUR QUESTIONS MAKE NO SENSE. Be clearer with your questions, explain more thoroughly what you're getting at, and then maybe we'll get somewhere. Don't toss me a riddle and then blame me for not figuring out the context on my own.

This is the problem I am referring to on the other thread. You mistake cryptic clues for sage wisdom.

The problem is, you're going to have a difficult time realizing when you've met an enlightened person. Their humility masks them.

Only the unenlightened feel compelled to convince others of their enlightenedness, so you'll probably be inundated in life far more by the unenlightened relating their experience than the enlightened.

As people have quoted, Lao Tzu said, "Those who speak do not know and those who know do not speak."

Maybe I shouldn't have said anything.

I have had many interactions with you and all you want is to tear me to pieces.
It is your game. If you do not see it then I am sorry - I do.


There is no past, if you believe that then your still a prisoner of beliefs. The day you drop your beliefs you will see the truth im your friend.




So have you stopped believeing in past yet?


If one believes that the past, present and future exist simultaneously in the moment, then all time and space exists in the moment, then the past is just as real as the present and the future, the next moment. I believe that some people have visions of the past and future, in the present moment.

You *are* the riddle... and you are your own context.

Once you realize you are an illogical being... and then realize it's impossible for an illogical being to exist... therefore you don't exist... you'll finally see the perfectly logical being you've been all along.

This has been like being in a washing machine.


Well... I guess it could also be a drain.

Why do I get the impression that you are being deliberately confusing...

Same reason I believe you are sincerely pretending to not understand.

I'm not pretending anything. If you are truly interested in helping me understand, then post as long an explanation as you need to in order to make your point obvious to even the most mentally deficient of ATS users.

Try using more than fifteen words this time.

How do you expect me to understand anything you're saying when you keep playing with me like that? You express disdain for my comprehension skills when you're barely giving me anything to comprehend.

I gave you a picture worth 269 words. It doesn't matter how many hammers people hand you... if you keep discarding them and asking for another nothing will get nailed.

LOL ...how is this thread still going? page 41? Seriously?

It's a covertly disguised trolling thread to pulls one's ego into debate.

While I agree that there are new agers and various types who have a few mystical experiences and then become Vain that they are "enlightened" ...but that's not it....

When it does happen (Enlightenment is Real), there is no more to be said, just Love, everything is One.... perhaps at least sharing with others that it is real and the various "way's there"

We're just a bunch of kids with words.


I'm pretty much always having fun when going down a water slide... and a little bit sad when the landing pool is in sight.

Not me, because that means I have the choice to experience it again, but the next time in a different way.

That's the upside of the feeling a bit sad when it's in sight. Once in it... get to think about the climb back up! Wouldn't want one without the other otherwise it's all the same.
