The absolute has many facets and even things written simply such as being one has profound ramifications on the mental model of the world.
Its absolutely radical.

Yes, there is much more. You're still a long way from massive enlightenment. That's what's missing.

@ActualizedDavid Dive into this. Sit and write down questions that arise. Keep probing and questioning. Make a dream board that is so audacious it’s flat out impossible. Then go back to the probing and new questions, regarding the “why not’s”, and the “hows”, etc, will arise. Dig into the dreaming, and the questioning, until you are satisfied beyond all doubts, questions, fears, concerns. It’s truly the adventure of a lifetime - and it is already afoot brother. ♥️
I never had a dream board i will create one . And continue questioning.
You Nahm, have the spirit of Abraham Hicks. Very encouraging and not limiting imagination.. ❤️7 hours ago, ajasatya said:
@ActualizedDavid Life is eternal. There will always be more to It.
I kinda know that is the way... Is true.7 hours ago, AlldayLoop said:
True. Just look how many Marvel movies there are.
And movie remakes and sequels and prequels and sequels to remakes. It’s endless.
I really like this example.5 hours ago, FoxFoxFox said:

Eternal silence is truthful and love.
Love. This word is the best word out there.

Who told you that “just realizing that we are all one” is the highest and only thing to realize?
Noone..Tell me more
I have a feeling that there is more to life...
Not this. Not money or success. Not beeing and stillness. I do not know.
I do not fell like i'm missing something . I fell that there's more things..
I have a strong sensation in my chest for the last 12-14 weeks and i can meditate , eat well, have sex , stay still. Sometimes the pressure is not there. But sometimes like now is here.
Right now i.m in my room enjoying the time and is night. I do not fell depressed or something bad let's say.
But i fell that there's more to this then just realizing that we are all one.
I needed to say this to somebody . Again i'm not depressed in any way . I'm just wandering..
Just wanted to share this video
I'm like this. I did not have much sex in the last year. It is wired. I feel alienated from my body most of the time when i have sex.
I managed to have some intense sex and be the watcher and that i enjoyed . Enjoyed alot.
Just watch what happens and do not think alot... That helped me.
I mean what about other life forms. What about them ?
I did not have ant direct experience . Are those things worth the time. Or we just need to stay here and enjoy the ride.
Or i should stop asking questions and do what my intuition is telling me and study this .

That's very wide question. A whole book could be written about that because there is so much stuff religions say.
God, for example, is not a dogma. But! For most religious people it is.
Dogma is not just about true vs false, dogma is about how you hold it. If a perosn holds a true thing as a belief which he has no direct experience of, it's still a dogma.
For example, if you are absolutely sure the Earth is round, that's a dogma, even if the Earth turns out to be round once you look down on it from orbit.
But if you have actually seen the round Earth with your own eyes, then it's not a dogma.27 minutes ago, Joseph Maynor said:
This is a profound question. I like to say: all beliefs are excuses. Those who do do. Those who can't do teach. When we can't do, our Ego-Mind needs to justify itself by weaving a suit of theory/rationalization that can be clung to like a child's blanket. People create teachings when they can't bring themselves to do. After all, if you could do, you would just do, there would be no issue.
This is good. Good answer.
What did you read about what i'm asking here ?
What books, audio lectures etc .
So direct experience is king. This are your words.
I got your book list.
Do you have any books there that explain what i'm asking? If yes. In what category are they in.
Or if anyone who had this question's -->what did you studied ?

What no dogma could be
A : 'I purged self'
Something that doesn't stick to mind.
Nature is a dogma. Humans are nature. A god self is above all programming.
The thoughts of others are dogma.
What is 'true' is an absolute self experience.22 minutes ago, TheAvatarState said:
Dogma:" a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true." So, dogmatic religion simply means religion practiced in this way. A truth claim based on "higher authority" that cannot be challenged. Notice how nearly all religions are believed in this way.
Only you can verify truth for yourself, because only you have sole authority over your reality.20 minutes ago, Leo Gura said:
Look at your hand. That's not dogma.
My hand is real right now.What is true is absolute self experience. But i still wanna have a good guvernament.
See.. what i'm asking is not what is true. I'm asking what from religion is not just people hallucinating ? or Interpreting stuff wrong.
How do you know what is religious dogma and what ia not?
What can be verified?

@ActualizedDavid ill just say this. You have to become directly conscious of it for yourself. So don't even take my word for it..or Leo's...or anyone else.
Also keep in mind that Truth is prior to scientific proof.
Yeah.. that's the ideea..
i found this woman. She look like she knows.
@Maya_0 yeah but the nondual teacher's mention about them...
So from what i see people talk about directly experiencing the absolute so you know for yourself.
But why this nondual teacher s that includ in they're teaching's pastlife's. And mention them. Do not talk about them ?
Is just a Given.
How can you become directly conscious of pastlife's ? Is a gift you have ? Use Drogs ? Some kind of meditation ?
So people who claim that they are the incarnation of x or y . They are deluded?
What is the point in finding your past life's memories and taking about them and creating your identity more ?
I'm just curious how this works. I have no experience and not much understanding.
Leo Talkes about rebirth on the ideea that we have life after life and live as multiple forms.
What is the proof for that or how can we experience something that can prove that directly ?
Do not ask me "who is there to rebirth"

@ActualizedDavid A good start is going to a retreat that already has everything set up for you. You will notice the necessities of a retreat there. It's much less prone to mess and time waste.
I see that there are places with food , yoga , meditation. Do i nees to go there? It.s expensive 1000$ for 7 days. ?
I can go to a fancy hotel in the mountains for 300$ for 7 days. That is more ok with my income .
I can meditate in my room no ? Or how can i do it on a buget ? I can cook my food...On 7/15/2019 at 6:45 AM, Aaron p said:
@ActualizedDavid food that doesn't need refrigerated, plenty of drinks/water, a few charging bricks, pillow, tent, meditation equipment, phycedelics, earphones/speaker, toothbrush, dry-sprayable shampoo, under arm, fresh clothes, sleeping bag, phone wallet keys, warm clothing, clothes for the cold as well. All of those things and some sort of plan of meditation including zazen and walking meditation to keep your ass from going numb and becoming painful.
My personal favorite compound to meditate on is methylenedioxymethamphetamine, it keeps you awake and able to meditate for wayyyyyyyyyy longer than usual and you feel amazing doing it. When I do walking meditation on that compound it literally blows me away every time I take a breath in. I walk slower for a second every inhalation it's on point ??
I will take notes from what you said here . thank you !!
A simple question .
How do you plan for a retreat ? Information about food,places etc.
