  1. Wow, I've never read someone explain this as well as you just did. Makes even more sense now. Thanks!
  2. From what I understand (which grated isn't much), the answer is yeah, kinda. There is no you. So there is no you/spirit, that goes on after you die. You are God/Infinity/The Absolute. You are everything and everyone. And everything that has ever happen and will ever happen, is happening (or more accurately Not happening), all right Now. So you(God) are everyone person, animal, plant, insect, planet, that has ever been, and will ever be. So in a way, that could be seen as reincarnation. Certainly closer than the religions or science, to the Truth.
  3. If all there is is Infinity/Truth/Consciousness. And 'one' can discover/remember that they are this everything/nothing/God. Which means none of us actually exist. So there is no free will of any of us, since none of us exist. And all there is is this infinite intelligence/God creating a dream. So 'us' working towards getting 'enlightened' is all this dream/hallucination. There is no work, and there is no awakening, as there is no one to awaken? All that can happen is God remembering it is God, because it forgot. Do I have that right? Did it create the dream of individual humans, create their Egos, and then forget about itself, all on purpose?
  4. @Leo Gura Really hope you do. Obviously something you're passionate about, which means most of us would be passionate about it too. For me, the longer the better. I enjoy diving deep down the rabbit hole. Hope to see it.
  5. Might sound silly, but the animated film 'All Star Superman (2011)', there section that is spot on Enlightenment. Lex Luthor has just had a Awakening moment: "I can see the entire electromagnetic spectrum. And those must be atoms, little clouds of possibility. Einstein couldn't connect the gravitational force to the other three, but if he could have seen this... It's so Obvious. The fundamental forces are yoked by consciousness. Everything is connected! Everyone. It's all a cruel joke. The mechanistic clockwork of reality hinging on a precious impossible defiance of entropy, on life. And the clockwork doesn't care. It's like - Like it's all just us, in here together." Superman: "You'll have to forgive him, He just figured out how everything works." Pretty enlightened for a children's flick.
  6. I sure hope so. I'm so ready for it.
  7. This may explain it all.
  8. Your mind, your body, every person, the world, the universe, physics, time and space, all are part of the illusion. All there is is consciousness.
  9. Try Meditation.. it's not what you think badum dum tss
  10. Two friends meet for coffee to catch up: “How are you?” one asks. The other replies: “I’m fine, thanks, but I'm still unemployed.” First friend: “Have you tried Meditating?” “Meditating? What’s that?” “I don’t know, but it’s better than sitting around doing nothing!”
  11. Have you heard of the cow who attained liberation and was viewed as a Zen idol? It was dyslexic and kept on repeating OOOOMMM !
  12. How Spiritually Enlightened are you? If.... If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, If you can resist complaining, If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time, If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, If you can be empathetic to other's plights, and never take anything personally, If you can face the world without lies and deceit, If you can relax or have fun without the need for liquor, If you can go through life without using drugs to numb your emotional pain, If you can be present every moment, not suffering from anything from the past, If you can be happy, despite whatever goes on around you, If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, gender preference, or politics, --Then you have almost reached the same level of spiritual development as your dog!
  13. Oops, my bad. Sorry.
  14. Maybe just buy the list? It's only $35. Support Leo. He does so much for no money.
  15. You (your Ego), every person in the world, the planet, the universe, physics, gravity, time and space, are all a dream, an illusion, all the same, all consciousness. We're all connected, because we're all the same thing, which is nothing. You are me and I am you.
