Re: Falling from grace

There seems to be a basic core concept of a person in the world. This seems to be happening, but it's happening by itself... don't know why. How can I? I'm not here. There is no hell or a people who fell from grace, no Shakespeare or Jesus, no waking up. We don't know or feel oneness because there i...

Re: Imaginary people pretending to be imaginary people

Hi G.
Yes indeed, perfect... perfect. I'll check out Solaris.
Cheers, J.

Re: Imaginary people pretending to be imaginary people

Hi S. Yes, without doubt, there is no rest of the universe. I don't know what science would say, but in reality I don't see the observer or the observed, only universe/consciousness in full bloom. For item - 2 In common terms yes, it does appear as if some build themselves up at the expense of other...

Thanks my friends. Indeed. Criticism, defense, both perfectly beautiful in the flow of manifestation/consciousness. Brant.

Imaginary people pretending to be imaginary people

I recently sent a response to the TAT Forum in reference to criticism of the January 2009 article by Steven Norquist, "What is Enlightenment?" http://tatfoundation.org/forum.htm Here are the two posts to my blog which address this: In reading commentary of many reports of so-called enlight...

Re: "I" is all

Sounds like you are in the right space. Over time brant had the same experience, back and forth between illusory self and ... not. He is still here and anything serious could send him over the edge. But now I know that it doesn't matter. What seemed to be the trick was to not make it into a problem,...

Re: "I" is all

The original intention was to describe an awakening. In fact, this would not be as easy as originally supposed. For example: in a previous post I wrote that I would answer the question, "is this a long process or instantaneous transformation?" As it turns out it is both, and neither. That ...

Re: "I" is all

I came across this quote today.

The consciousness in you and the consciousness in me, apparently two, really one, seek unity and that is love.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

"I" is all

I decided that I would describe realizations during an awakening process. After 35 years of collecting beliefs on the so-called "spiritual" path I had arrived at the realization that my "brant" personality was interferring in some essential way. I studied and mastered empty mind ...

Re: Robotics

Ah, the precise issue. We could question that there is no world and may be correct. We might question that yes, there is a world isn't there(?) and also be correct. Until we recognize that only the question is wrong... Everything and no-thing in proper place, Not-a-world is no-thing. With duality......

Re: Robotics

It was during meditation but I must have dozed off and begun dreaming. As I watched, a large vessel appeared. It looked like a bowl or a pot floating by itself with no background and no source of support. Or, at least I was so taken by it's appearance that I didn't notice anything else. At once It c...

Re: Robotics - cont'd from Gen. Discussion

That's the trouble with thought & communication. It's always half true - half false and can be poked full of holes. Around and around we go. We are out here discussing because we may be able to clarify but realistically, is it is just not possible. Still it's fun and fun is good. I couldn't poss...

Re: Robotics

Indeed, just so. It appears that we cannot hope to overcome mind (individual or group) as it has evolved. What we can and know how to do is trick or silence it, which eventually changes the dynamic. We know that mind cannot tolerate stillness and remain as it has been. Again, an evolutionary process...

Re: Robotics - cont'd from Gen. Discussion

Nisargadatta is acting as a foil (or a software patch) to the dreaming beings he speaks to, but brant is not. He is a robot dream being not seeking anything except to be out here describing the awakening process happening in order to observe it from various angles (other robots or the awakened) so t...
