Re: I think, therefore I am....

Whereas Being ItSelf is unqualified, complete, and produces no therefore’s, no conclusions apart from Its own Self-declared Presence. Yea, but........What is Being? Is it a sense of I Am, or is it simply just being, without consciousness of being? There is always this problem with Being as such - w...

Woops, sorry, two previous guest entries were mine - I forgot to log in - seems to be a flaw in the system, you just start writing, and it takes it down, whether or not you are logged in. Sorry about that.

Neo - nice quote from Nietsche. I really liked that. I think feeling different is a sign of uncertainty with one's reality - a kind of existential discomfort with being alive. Perhaps it is the sense of contraction that we all experience as a physical being - the mere activity of muscles contracting...

Taking it With You

You know the old saying "You can't take it with you?" when we discuss death and dying? Well, I'm not so sure about that. If we, as individual entities, (and if we believe we are individual entities) spend a lifetime creating a "paradigm", or "consciousness" inhabited by...

Nicely put, That! Indeed, forgetting is the way out of the maze, I think. Interesting, you know, that the more you forget, or release, or give up, the clearer and more precise vision becomes. There was a time in my own life when I knew so many things. I look back and see how cluttered it was - but b...

Hmmmmm, significant question, I think. Essentially, when you get right down to it, I would suggest that spirituality is something that is actually NOT distinct from, or opposed to, "non-spirituality". In other words, everything is spiritual, because everything is essentially God, or perhap...

It's about courage

Thinking about the difficulty that folks have in confronting others about their inappropriate behavior, got me to reminiscing about my own struggle with speaking out and forthrightly, risking the discomfort caused by other's disapproval of my own behavior, and around it goes, endlessly holding us ca...

I like your "mind", wind. I do think however, that within infinity there can be finiteness - but not the other way around of course, with infinity within finiteness. Infinity implies evrything, all, and thus must include finiteness - that would explain why there can be infinity, or omnipot...

Exactly, just so. The difference between KNOWING (and therefore BEING) it, and knowing in the intellectual way of "knowing something." I think perhaps the fanatic is more about trying to convince him or herself, as opposed to others, although it manifests as trying to convince others. We a...

Einstein's blind spot

Here's a conundrum. Einstein did not agree or accept quantum mechanics, based on quantum physics which posits, or believes?, that the observer changes the outcome of the observed experiment, and therefore cannot be predictable, as well as that at base all subatomic particles and their reactions are ...

:lol: Very nice ending, Miko. I suppose the same could be said of any religious fanatic - which applies to all religions in the end. It is the fanaticism that causes the problems, not the religion nor the believer. Fanaticism can come in all shapes and sizes, doesn't even have to be religious. We ca...

Thoughts about forgiveness

Carrying this a little further: Why is it that we need to forgive? Why is it that we are angry in the first place with, or believe that we are harmed by, whatever, or whoever it is that we need to forgive? (Forgiveness implies that we have been harmed somehow, by something or someone, no?) I realize...

Who forgave whom?

Nice mantra. Keep in mind that when someone states an opinion about another, that opinion usually reflects more about the individual who states it, than an objective factual opinion about the facts. (We cannot see in another what is not already within our own hearts.) Or, we see out there what we ar...

Miko, I'm not a historian, but I do know a little bit about history. Your question re whether or not other ages were more or less interested in spirituality caught my attention. In my own personal opinion, I would suggest, no. I think that the human situation, as it is within the world with all its ...

Getting along with People

Well, Bhakti just generated a string of thoughts that I decided to share with the outside world - my thoughts are usually confined to my small, limited head - perhaps that is bad, or perhaps that is good - all depends upon the thoughts, I suppose?! Or perhaps depends upon how large I consider my &qu...
