  1. Dreams are weird, but also quite revealing. I had a similar dream once or twice, years ago. And well, it also involved a devil or demon trying to kill me or torture... But long story short, at the end of the dream I realized that I wasn't afraid of death, even now, because I don’t believe in death. So now I live my life somewhat fearlessly. Any way I really don’t know what your dream is suppose to mean but maybe you can figure it out since it's personal to you. My advice is try to reflect on it with 100% sincerity, don't try to make things relatable if they aren't or look for things that are not there. focus on actuality, like your feelings and changes in your psyche.
  2. In the midst of all this chaos and noise induced by enquiry - there is silence. Deep in the ocean of confusion where cries and crisis flourishes - there's silence. Where there's a wide range of colors there's an absence of sight. Where there's a high population of feelings and emotion, there's numbness. It's not peaceful nor is it dreadful; it just Is - Silence. And in this silence - Meaning screams for attention, so much so that the deaf can hear this outcry. Hear the questions, hear the answers. But will you ever stop and hear the silence?
  3. I do encourage radical open mindedness, like being open minded to the possibility that everything you know might be incorrect. But from observation alone I can confidently say that as people we cannot handle not being grounded on some sort of information or knowledge. We aren't free unless we are in bondage. This I say because I do believe that knowledge is bondage. When you believe (even think) that you know something as a truth, you have limited yourself only to that supposed fact, therefore any thing else will appear to be false and all other sorts of negative connotations will be projected onto what is believed not to be true. E.g) If you can't accept the possibility that 1+1 can = 0 than you are not only bound but also limited. Hence most of us won't realise our God like nature in this life time, and thus our potential remains untapped.
  4. @winterknight What would it mean to you if a master, perhaps your favorite teacher, told you that you've not truly experienced enlightenment? PS: Not looking for a nondual type of answer, but a genuine one.
  5. Yeah it's definitely possible. And the fucked up part is that you won't know that you've stopped - until you start thinking again. It's a moment were 'you' are no more, along with the rest of...what we call existence. The sad part is that you won't be able to enlighten your folks about it because you won't be able to communicate such.
  6. The human and consciousness are actually one and the same thing. So there is no relationship here because there is no duality. The human is conscious because the human is consciousness. Ultimately everything is consciousness. Make sense?
  7. Instead of trying to remove the ego, try to remove the remover, and see where that leads you.
  8. Our life? What do you mean by this? I don’t believe in free will but neither do I believe in determinism. With freewill it's pretty simple why I don't, it's because even if it did exist, there wouldn't be anyone to use it or take possession of it which then defeats the purpose of its supposed existence. And with determinism...well it implies a cause (causation), which then entertains the idea of a past and inevitably, a future. I don't believe in anything out of consciousness, and since the past has never been observed along with the future, I don't consider them to be more than just figments of our imagination. However, I do believe that the way people react (like the choices that they make) is, in a sense, "programmed" because there has to be some sort of mechanism guiding the decision making process by all entities, regardless of whether biological or technological, otherwise we would all be like stones and not react when we... I don't know, find ourselves at the bottom of a lake with no access of air. There has to be some system conducting all of life, maybe EVOLUTION could be it. Ultimately anything is possible, these are just my thoughts.
  9. Yeah, I had already read it but I still don't get it. Is that what the monks said? It is was for drawing attention to the issue? Well if so then wow, talk about taking extreme measures. I'm sorry, but I still think that's a bit insane .
  10. What? And did he mention why? Was he trying to make some sort of point? WTF?
  11. I hope so. I wouldn't want to "believe" that I've done it (died).
  12. @Shin OK so, letting go of my beliefs and identity, that's how I die. But how will I know this when I've done it, will it be obvious or something?
  13. Then how can I die if I was never alive /existed? Explain this to me like I was a ten year old (simply)
  14. @isabel this is pretty much an open debate so it would help if you stated whose opinion/ideas you are referring to. What I am trying to make understandable here is that... taste without the taster, or the taster without the taste leaves meaninglessness or that which we can't communicate. But don't cling on the word, meaningless, I'm only using it for the idea we are discussing. For what is meaningless without meaning??? Nothing is a term that refers us to the concept of non-existence / the absence of everything. But what is nothing without everything ? Can you see how both of these terms depend on each other for them to have meaning in the first place. The term, non-duality, means something. But that which is non-dual is meaningless. If you are expecting to arrive at something meaningful by pursuing it then... Good luck.
