So it was just spontaneous without any method?

One question. If its always Now. What is death?

Yes it was spontaneous without any method.
'Death' is a concept, an idea that arises presently.
You will always be because you are the space that apparent things come and go in - you will see things come (like when a baby is born) and you will see things go (like other people dying). You will also see the body you see now go but what you really are will never go anywhere because it is the aware space that all things come and go in.

What else can death be, but just another experience?

Life... death...
Day... night...

changes of experience is always happening...

---

If death is happening, the mind will probably say a lot of things out of fear, and that is nature. It is just the way of the mind, however, the truth is... we are WHOLE, whatever happens - the truth is we are ready for it or it wouldn't happen, the mind can resist though...


we are COMPLETE
(we are already PERFECTED there is nothing required of us - all just happens).

we are ETERNAL
(Experiences change but The Watcher of Experiences remain...)

Yet you said 'Youve only been here a short time'.
To which I answered 'How long is now?'

Concepts and opinions, you create willingly, and they cloud your perception to where you do jot see what is really being perceived.


Concepts are words - they are appearances. They appear like a cloud in the sky.
You are the sky.

Now is the sky. Now is the space in which all things appear (including words, concepts and ideas).

Why make a principle out of something we all do anyways?

Every animal lives in the now. What you're promoting is to stop thinking, to deny thought (insofar as it is concerned with past and future), and to disregard memory, prediction, and human experience in favour of hedonistic and animalistic ignorance.

'Ignorance is bliss' is already the most popular and common philosophy out there.

Memories appear now and anticipation appear now.
The idea that there is a you in past or in future is an idea that happens now.
What wrong with right now....unless you think about something outside of now?

Yes - it is too obvious. The mind cannot do anything with it so it is seen as useless information.
Yet it is the answer to all your prayers.

The OP is not making a law or rule (principle) out of it. The op has realized something profound and is sharing.

It's not that it cannot do anything with the information, it is because it is unnecessary to do anything with that information.

My mistake. I meant it to be for you.

It makes sense to me because we live in the, albiet now, but also the physical realm, so those bills keep needing to be paid, now.

The image that is appearing presently is the formation - it is complete.

Again - no rules or laws - just recognition and sharing.

Actually I said "principle". Why make a principle out of something we already do by default? If accepting the obvious is profound, I'd be hard-pressed to wonder what you'd say is not profound.

I'm just curious.

It is not about 'accepting' the obvious - it is seeing the obvious.
Not all recognize that they are constantly present watching words and ideas form. The ideas imply there is something other than here and now - like 'tomorrow' and then a scared individual tries to make tomorrow ok now. The mind is trying to solve the problem of 'tomorrow'. But 'tomorrow' is not really happening.
You are constantly present with whatever there is - there is no need to plan to be ok. If you check you will find you are always ok - that is if you check how you are now. If you think you 'will' be ok - you will always miss the mark.

You mentioned in a post in another thread that you are nothing but "waiting", that "waiting" is what you do.

My response is that it is because of "waiting" that we are in this mess to begin with. We've been "waiting" for someone else to take responsibility, "waiting" for a solution to just present itself, and "waiting" for an excuse to just keep on "waiting".

Your OP reminds me of that post.

Yeah, that really helps. Go sit in your corner while we come up with tomorrow's answers to today's problems. You know, a real solution - not just philosophical reasons to spend a whole lot of time doing exactly nothing.

That's very insightful. If not for those that step out of the now and step into future envisioning of ways to better the human race and the Earth we'd all be lost in that one point of now that was, again, as I have said before, we have to function on many different realms as we are not purely spirit.
