  1. Following is from the red book: "On what basis should I presume to teach you? I give you news of the way of this man, but not of your own way. My path is not your path therefore I / cannot teach you. 24 The way is within us, but not in Gods, nor in teachings, nor in laws. Within us is the way, the truth, and the life. Woe betide those who live by way of examples! Life is not with them. If you live according to an example, you thus live the life of that example, but who should live your own life if not yourselfr So live yourselves. 25 The signposts have fallen, unblazed trails lie before US. 26 Do not be greedy to gobble up the fruits of foreign fields. Do you not know that you yourselves are the firtile acre which bears everything that avails you?There is only one way and that is your way. 27 You seek the path? I warn you away from my own. It can also be the wrong way for you. May each go his own way." Leo´s way is not your own, nor anyone elses and there is no reason what is true for Leo should be true for you.
  2. I know, I wanted it to sound that way. See how it made him reconsider how he has been treating this fellow? The arrow hit the mark. I don't personally hold grudges against david or against anyone for that matter really.
  3. Lmao if that was what enlightenment was like then it would be ten times better to be "pathetic" as you say. You don´t carry a noble message nor noble intentions. You are using enlightenment as a free pass to be an asshole to Mikhael. Altough he isn´t the most normal fellow i have seen over here at least his defence mechanism isn´t as destructive as yours. Please go be "enlightened" somewhere else and don´t spread your "enlightenment" to us. Begone devil. -Sincerely, an unenlightened "pathetic" motherfucker.
  4. Gautama Buddha would like to have a word with you
  5. What if you enlist for military if it's a viable path in your country?
  6. I'm sorry you have to go through all that. I'm sure good things will come your way if you can keep going a little longer. I wish we could help you beyond just throwing some encouraging words around.
  7. You have very interesting dreams. Would you mind telling us a bit about yourself like your job and what your average day looks like and if possible when your dreams started?
  8. I will adress the extended edited part of your comment. I do have a desire to root out an "imposter". So what you say is true. However it is not relevant in any way how arrogant, angry, egoic i am in the face of arguments i presented. If you adressed my arguments and showed me how i am wrong i would actually be quite happy to accept i am wrong. But you won´t adress them because i am such a lowly arrogant angry peasent that i am not good enough to criticise you. Only those who are as enlightened as big daddy Joseph can criticise Joseph. You need to take your own advice.
  9. What you listed there have literally no relevance before my arguments which you won´t adress.
  10. Please don´t act like a guru while being all high and mighty and telling people you are better than them. There is no shame in being a learner and accepting you are wrong. Even Dalai Lama has accepted he had been wrong several times on live stream.
  11. My Ego or my actions have nothing to do with the validity of my arguments. I never claimed i am egoless. My arguments are valid and you won´t adress them because you know you can´t.
  12. Please keep attacking my person rather than my arguments. You are validating my point
  13. You didn´t even argue back and try to show how i wasn´t right. This is an invalid reply. If you had put up an argument and tried to show how i was wrong than i could have been obsessed with being right. You are putting no argument at all, you are only talking about my person rather than the content of my replies.
  14. Translation: I know i am wrong that´s why i am going to avoid answering. I told Shin i am better than him and resorted to ad hominem. If you so badly need to know why i am being so bashy right now on you is because from many other discussions i have read involving, you made numerous claims of enlightenment, and even claimed you are so good because your blog posts have like views in 3 digits. I will tell you the truth. You come here everyday seeking validaiton that you are enlightened, then you feel good subconsciously because you are so enlightened and therefore better than others. This part of your psyche already surfaced when you attacked Shin´s person rather than his argument. Only if you could get out of your own head and face the critic you would know. The reason why you are avoiding critic so bad is because it will destroy your opinion that you are so enlightened, that you are so good. I do not make claims of enlightenment myself, but i know for a fact that you are an imposter.
  15. You are still avoiding critic. Shin told you that you need to let go of pride. You said you won´t take advice from him because you are better than him. Now you are avoiding the original content of the discussion because you know you are wrong and too proud to admit.
  16. If you read my comment again, i didn´t make any claims about whether i am trying to fight or not. I said your reply was empty of content and you resorted to ad hominem in face of an argument you couldn´t take. You are still avoiding the original content about the criticism about you and making it about how it is about me trying to fight. Whether i am trying to fight or not is not important. What is important is that you avoid critic about yourself by making it about me.
  17. I know you are not trying to fight Again you didn´t reply to the content of the comment but just made it about me.
  18. Bullshit. You didn´t attack the argument but the person. Your reply is empty of content other than the obvious "I am better than you"
  19. I see there is a lot of muh enlightenedness going on in this thread. Wherever there are egos there is a fight
  20. 1) "The same impressions are not produced by the same objects owing to the differences in animals." 2) The same impressions are not produced by the same objects owing to the differences among human beings. 3) The same impressions are not produced by the same objects owing to the differences among the senses. 4) Owing to the "circumstances, conditions or dispositions," the same objects appear different. The same temperature, as established by instrument, feels very different after an extended period of cold winter weather (it feels warm) than after mild weather in the autumn (it feels cold). Time appears slow when young and fast as aging proceeds. Honey tastes sweet to most but bitter to someone with jaundice. A person with influenza will feel cold and shiver even though she is hot with a fever. 5) "Based on positions, distances, and locations; for owing to each of these the same objects appear different." The same tower appears rectangular at close distance and round from far away. The moon looks like a perfect sphere to the human eye, yet cratered from the view of a telescope. 6) “We deduce that since no object strikes us entirely by itself, but along with something else, it may perhaps be possible to say what the mixture compounded out of the external object and the thing perceived with it is like, but we would not be able to say what the external object is like by itself." 7) "Based, as we said, on the quantity and constitution of the underlying objects, meaning generally by "constitution" the manner of composition." So, for example, goat horn appears black when intact and appears white when ground up. Snow appears white when frozen and translucent as a liquid. 8) "Since all things appear relative, we will suspend judgement about what things exist absolutely and really existent. Do things which exist "differentially" as opposed to those things that have a distinct existence of their own, differ from relative things or not? If they do not differ, then they too are relative; but if they differ, then, since everything which differs is relative to something..., things which exist absolutely are relative." 9) "Based on constancy or rarity of occurrence." The sun is more amazing than a comet, but because we see and feel the warmth of the sun daily and the comet rarely, the latter commands our attention. 10) "There is a Tenth Mode, which is mainly concerned with Ethics, being based on rules of conduct, habits, laws, legendary beliefs, and dogmatic conceptions." source: wikipedia
  21. And if you disagree, it's your own projection. Aren't we tired of such discussions already?
  22. Brother, the fact that you are defending suggests you have something you want to protect badly, and i can tell you what that thing is; it's your opinion of yourself. Take our word for it, we look from outside, you look from within. We can see certain things about yourself that you are unable to see and vice versa.
  23. The ego is an Italian dessert similar to apple pie
  24. Good insight brother. I was also in similar feelings when I had this insight. "I" make me do evil because "I" want things. It is hard to communicate all contents of this experience. I understand what you mean by "what comes next?". Peace brother.
