  1. @Anton Rogachevski Glad to be a part of the discussion
  2. @now is forever sorry, I guess I am talking about different meaning, I refer to the one that we assign when talking about existence.
  3. Nope, they are not separate, because meaning is a part of infinity even if there are infinite numbers of meaning/s.
  4. @Anton Rogachevski Anton, here is a little disclaimer: I still treat the work we are doing here as a philosophy. By no means, I want to mislead people. Yes, I read, learn and know some things, but I probably am not in the position to make any claims. I will share with you my personal thoughts, however, do not treat it as some serious insight, since I am still far away than those who practice on a regular basis. To me, meaning should have another reason that would stand behind it, and that reason should have some other reason, etc. It is super hard to use linguistic terms to explain Infinity. Should we not treat meaning as a part of it? Can we assign certain meaning in any outcome, or there are infinite numbers of them, depending on the perspective you are looking at? Please forgive me, I am not an expert or ever reached that condition to judge from that level. I wonder about it myself. So far, I guess if we assign meaning, it will neglect all the Experience. Meaning is limited, very limited. Infinity is unbounded. Should we leave this door open and drop all the notions? So, I see meaning as a part of Infinity, but not the separate conception, otherwise, meaning itself will overweight Infinity, but that is impossible by default? Right? We can not put meaning above the Infinity. Infinity holds meaning, but not otherwise. I hope my thought is clear and plausible. Again, this is my personal opinion and I might be wrong. Thank you for reading.
  5. @Anton Rogachevski Anton, I am glad you liked my comment. Certainly, I won't take credit for the wisdom, because it is not mine. I am sure you understand. This post was an accident because it meant to be for another thread, lol. I do like Watts, but he wouldn't be my favorite teacher though. Yes, I agree, Enlightenment can be confused with nihilism. But what do we expect from our egoic nature? Everything that does not serve ego's agenda will be thrown immediately in the window, lol. Also, if there is meaning or not, it is a complex issue, again it depends on the perspective because it can be either universal or personal. From my point of view, if we talk about the Infinite nature of the Consciousness then there is no such thing as meaning. Good luck to you as well!
  6. I have been asking this question for a long time, and all my life I struggle to give a definite answer. We can talk about virtue, love and serve others in helping them, but really Emotions define your life, your mental states, your attitude, your mood. They play a huge role in your survival, right? Otherwise you would not care. IMHO, if you are an Infinity, then you encapsulate already everything: all the experiences, knowledge, emotions’ pallet and so on. Maybe we should treat it as a game, I don’t know. Sounds horrible but when thinking about life and its purpose it diminishes everything, leading you to depression. There is no such thing, really. Make up your own values and play with it.

  8. @Aquarius Your post is very contradictional by nature. If you ever grasped the meaning of unconditional love, you would not say things like you wanted to kill yourself or you were hurt. You are not being honest with yourself.
  9. @Pilgrim that is a wonderful post. I am working on it myself now with my life coach. It is hard, because we have various fallacies about ourselves. Sometimes it hurts to realize that you have been lying yourself for a long time.
  10. @Leo Gura oh Leo, can’t wait to meet you, I am in for everything, if in Chicago I will bring only one person, if in Atlanta I could arrange way more people. thanks for doing it, can’t believe I will see you.
