  1. When you see these 5 statements..... you have reached the end of language: 1. The ego is [good] because __________________________________ 2. The individual is [good] because ______________________________ 3. The personal narrative is [good] because ____________________________________ 4. Having a separate self is [good] because _____________________________________ 5. Insert value system that most people admire is [good] because _________________________ Only direct EXPERIENCE can see through these arguments of the ego. Once these arguments present themselves, [mind] must stop. [Mind] is done. It is a place where language is no longer useful. The 5 statements above are when the ego appears to be on the side of God and the spirit. The 5 statements above are when the ego is trying to prevent you from becoming a zen devil...... which is a [good] thing. but to say it is a [good] thing is a judgement soooo. haha What do you do when you come to this place? How does ANYONE ever know what to do here? These 5 statements are the trickiest paradox on the spiritual journey. And I am stuck here. Aren't we all stuck here? Won't we always be stuck here?
  2. You can leave the forum but you can't leave truth. As long as you can tell the difference. The truth IS. You breathe it. You are it. You can't escape it because everywhere you go - there it is. Everything you do - there it is.
  3. One of the greatest skills a person can develop is to entertain themselves. Then you will never be bored no matter who you are talking to.
  4. Yellow stage lessons from Renee Amberg
  5. I don't have a favorite book but I am currently reading "A Course in Miracles". Every day, this book is giving my ego a smack in the face and kick in the gut. LOL The writer basically is trying to attack the ego from every angle that it can. haha It's like a war zone for the ego. I heard a lot about it but never expected the book to be this good. There are so many hidden karate chop moves in this book that when I tried to read this book in the past, I completely overlooked them. It is not a good beginners book. I am fascinated with any author or creator who sees the moves of the mind with such clarity.
  6. Go where tons of millenials live. LOL And I am being serious. Go where millenials are the main population and you will see "green stage" elements.
  7. Timers are king. When you consume content, use a timer. Everything I read, listen to, and watch is on a timer. This prevents you from falling into a "trance state". Also - time yourself on the forums. Time everything and you won't fall into "trance states" of procrastination.
  8. I do this too. If the quote is really mind blowing, I will place it on my One Note.
  9. I use kindle primarily and I highlight and take notes directly unto the digital book. Since it's digital, you can remove the highlights and notes whenever you want. And kindle also takes all of your notes and places them in a central file if you want to view all of the notes at once.
  10. I literally read about this yesterday in Adyashanti's "The End of your World" book. LOL Here is a copy of the page from my book:
  11. Sabrina Carpenter - Thumbs
  12. I think this is linked to the "cultural appropriation" debate.
  13. I don't think it is. The good feeling in romantic love is because we "temporarily access truth" -- not of any choice of our own, but through biological chemicals forcing us into alignment with what is true. For a moment, your mind is forced biologically into a non-judgmental state. LOL The chemicals force you to have full acceptance of the present moment -- which is love. But it's not .... lasting love because we always return back to ego mind. So I would argue that you can "fall in love" with someone of any stage. But when you return back to ego-mind, the stages of each person might impact how long the relationship will last. But I don't know. I could be completely wrong on this. haha
  14. I don't know anything about the monks from Mount Hiei. But Blue stage has glimpses of infinity and turns it into dogma. So it's not that they don't have glimpses. It's how they "react" to the glimpses.
  15. Jealousy is the thought that "X person has more consciousness than me". How do you measure this? "You have more consciousness than me" is an error and impossible. There are 4 techniques that really help with jealousy: - Metta: wishing good will to others in all areas of their life (their health, their safety, their happiness, etc.) - Gratitude: giving thanks for what you already have - Grace : you hurt me but I will bless you - Non attachment: I own nothing in this world, not even my thoughts and emotions belong to me
