Let me guess....your side?
What does that even mean? My Side? If I am telling you, that you can go to Niagara Falls and experience the Majesty, what does that have to do with
This isn't about picking a team here. This is a discussion, not war.
What does that have to do with anything? Of course its not a war. Its about what is truth. What is right. Why are we here. Is Enlightenment and the
Absolute, real and things that can be experienced? Does God exist? Since some people remember pre-existing prior to the body, and the majority don't,
what are the implications?
Is rape and molestation bad or good?
There's two sides to every coin. Why not try the whole coin?
What are the two sides to the coins of rape, molestation, murder, revenge, etc?
What?!?! What else do you think they were talking about?
For the most part, all of these folks here:
And the books that have been saying the opposite? Heraclitus? Epicurus? Lucretius? Spinoza? Bacon? Machiavelli? Descartes? Aristotle? Schopenhaur?
Nietszche? Hawking? James? Freud? Russel? Wittgenstein? Derrida? Foucault? Heidegger? Mill? Hume? Locke? Hobbes? Dewey? Diderot? Santayana? Marx?
Have written volumes and volumes of books about thoughts, ideas, theories, systems, abstractions, etc.
Buddha, Jesus, Shankara, Maharshi, Nisargadatta, Anadi, etc ........have provided blueprints to become complete, Enlightened, to reach the direct
experience of the Absolute Truth.
If you think that the direct Experience of the Absolute state is the same as volumes of abstractions, you've got to be kidding me. Thomas Aquinas (A
theologian) also wrote volumes of abstractions like all those name's you mentioned, and after he experienced the Absolute, he said that everything he
ever wrote is like straw to the Wind.
All those name's you mentioned, all books, are straw men compared to the direct experience.
I am not promoting a philsophy. I am pointing at those who sit and do nothing but sit. I am pointing at dishonesty and double-standards. I am pointing
at the naivety, gullibility and credulity. I am pointing at the pretenders and the self-despisers. I am pointing at those who hate the world, their
own body, and thus everyone else's. I am pointing at the salesmen and pushers.
Ahhhhh, ok, I got it. Your philosophy is one of pointing out all others. Pointing and judging.
I am pointing at your philsophy.
Misnomer. My Philosophy is direct experience of the Absolute Truth prior to any philosophies, thoughts, abstractions, books, etc. The built in
self-defense mechanism, is that it is prior to everything and anything that can be said or thought of it, yet is directly accessible by all.
Therefore, by it's very nature, it itself is not a philosophy, but a direct experience/knowingness/Beingness
Your gonna have a bad day, because your then pointing at Jesus, Buddha, God, Infinity, Existence, Soul, the Best of The Best Squared......
It's no longer high-school is it. I spent years in India, China and Tibet eating nothing but rice and penetrating inward with gurus. Yes I know what
you're going to say: that I am of the wrong frequency or not spiritually in tune. I've heard it all.
What did you get out of all that? Did you discover the nature of your own Awareness? Of Being? The Source of Thought? The Source of Love? The State of
no 'I'? Or was it just a fun trip?
Only Sith speak in absolutes.
Since you just made an absolute statement, I guess you too are now a Sith. Welcome brother!!!
It is a damn shame when someone thinks there is a spirituality for every man.
There is. You're saying it here in the very next thread:
Each person's spirituality is his own, no one else has any casual rights to it.
Look at this very thread. Not a similar definition of spirituality in the whole bunch.
Actually, there are similar definitions. Itsnowagain and HarryTZ have both seen and experienced that inherently, the thinker of thoughts is not who we
Spirituality has universalities in it. The opening of the Third eye, the Light of Consciousness, the Source of Thought, the Soul, and various other
aspects are all Universal and are things that a person will come across in most spiritual systems and depending on their maturity and level of
experience and understanding.
Your own philosophy becomes self evident in your posts
