"I Am" is our anti-mind killer. Our pain, is our conquest: Victor and subject to us.

S/F for you OP. Pain is surely a debilitating condition. As someone who has dealt with some righteous back pain since a traffic accident, I will cop to being immobilized by pain. The main point with which I agree is that much of my reaction to pain is the fear of possible damage rather than the pain itself being unbearable. I've been trying to train myself through literally years of rigorous activity to dig the fact that I am strong. And most of the time that works.

However, when pain comes on -- especially really suddenly -- it takes me back to a time after the accident/surgery when I was completely overwhelmed, immobile and consequently completely vulnerable. I think the association is harder to get through than the pain itself. There are times when pain is a clear indication that something is wrong, but more often for myself it's been some sort of self-check -- it indicates to me that I should calm down 'or else.'

Deciphering that 'or else' voice and its motivations is one of the more interesting and difficult tasks I've worked on.

Great post and very helpful.

Yes, you are not. You told you have no heart and there is no you.

Which is what I have been saying all along.
There is no me, there is no you - there is only this and this is one and this one is being done.
This is emptiness forming. This is nothing happening.
No one is separate because there is no one - this is all there is.
The happening is happening but it is not a thing that is happening - it is nothing....happening.

Speak up and you will be saved. Confess the denied. Do it with someone you feel loved with. Even though he/she might not understand everything you've told, or did not allign with everything you said. It will have been heard, and your heart will have opened up.

Rejoining humanity this way, you will have a place.

Have you been saved? Have you found peace and understanding?

I don't need to be saved?
What do I need saving from?

From what exactly???
Boredom?

Why do you believe that I have to be saved?

It is trying to 'save yourself' that has you scared.

saved/healed.

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

And you say I speak in riddles.

Saved or healed from what?
Try to find what it is that you think you need saving from and reply with an answer - or not. Maybe the looking will clear up any confusion.

There has been no more influential book on my younger mind when starting out than the Tao.

It and a few words from Bruce Lee´s later years were my launching points into the unknown.

Thank you for that addition.

"like Bruce said, be water my friend."

and Tao, be as ice about to melt. The dragon.

energy to be released upon the void.

Enter the open field......formless.


EDIT:
Wise like old men crossing a winters stream.....that is how the ancients were.

I am glad you got something out of it man.

Allot of times when talking about these things we are simply saying what WE see, from our limited point of view.

It is a cause for celebration when others can connect and share a window and a view. It really is something else.
I hope you heal well bud.

Have a good one.

how so?

I dont know what you are referring to? Though I can agree with your comment. Deception is counter productive to truth, obviously.

As far as "God" caring, that term must be defined in it use since even in this thread "god" has taken on many roles.

My GOD? I dont even fully understand that. How can I explain it? "He" doesnt mind waiting. I dont. Time is not.

time is the perception of events within a gravitational field.

It is a perception. Our minds have learned to adjust to it, but in their core, they operate without it.

All consciousness exists in the timeless and we filter it to decipherable levels according to our concept of its progression.

Really, the purest thought has no mention of it. It is simply a human construct.

We only measure our ability to measure. NOT time itself.

Move to planet with more or less mass and a greater or weaker gravitational field, and so greater or weaker gravitational distortion, also one that orbits a sun with more mass or less mass than our own sun and has a slower or faster revolution around it.

Time would not be constant. Even in the physical world we can see as much.

time truly is "relative".
