  1. I have an imaginary pet dog, his will seems to be to sniff butts, chase squirrels and slobber. I am desperately trying to align my will with his but I got smacked really hard with a cane yesterday for sniffing a butt so lately I've been quite hesitant to continue this pursuit.
  2. "The β€˜me’ is a bundle of memories, empty words: that is what we cling to; the very essence of the separation between you and me, they and we." - J krishnamurti This episode of Leo's goes along quite well with this topic... didn't see it until just now.
  3. Labeling apparent reality as God is perfect and simultaneously flawed.
  4. I hope you're not planning on hurting yourself.❀ I realize you may be talking about ego death or the recognition that it isn't real.
  5. Freedom from the need for anything to be other than what it is.
  6. @Terell Kirby yes exactly, meaning purpose and value are socially conditioned concepts within the dream story of being a separate individual(Maya/Matrix). Enlightenment is freedom for nobody from these illusory parameters of experience. ❀
  7. There was never a you to be cut off, and an infinite source of intelligence is just a concept. Notice the sense of me does not like free floating....it always tries to identify as something(infinite intelligence) Do you feel infinitely intelligent?
  8. πŸ‘ The identification AS the individual with all the suppressed emotional trauma is the issue. But simultaneously it's not denial or detachment, it's the revelation that this traumatized individual with all of its so-called negative baggage isn't real. It's an illusion! When this revelation is deeply embodied/seen clearly, all the trauma and baggage starts naturally falling away because there's nothing for it to attach and cling to any longer. ❀
  9. Survival and spirituality are not separate pursuits. The parameters and hindrances are illusory. ❀
  10. Accurate compared to what? There is no real goal or end result that needs to be attained and in that sense accurate or inaccurate are non-applicable. All the different affiliations, religions, groups, and sects, are just different pieces of everything but believing their piece is the absolute truth. Like the Blind Men elephant parable:
  11. Yes of course the ego would rather identify itself as something rather than nothing. Ego = identification. It wants to be there to reap the benefits if and when enlightenment occurs. The problem is the ego already has a preconceived concept about what enlightenment entails(what it should and shouldn't be like). Hence the importance of emptying the glass prior to any deep self-inquiry. Unknowing!! The ego quite literally takes the words used to describe enlightenment by the mystics, and twists them to fit into it's preconceived egoic fantasy story. No ego can ever understand what Ramana Maharshi was pointing to because he was describing the end of the ego's experience. ❀
  12. Most people are trying to gain something, they are trying to acquire awakening. Observe the individual that wants to aquire awakening. Is it a real entity? What does it consist of? Ego transcendence is not a real happening. Transcendence is just a word used to describe the apparent awakening experience. No individual transcends the ego because the ego is the individual. It's an unhappening. Because the very individual that was attempting to find a better experience in the future(awakening) is recognized to be completely unreal. ❀
  13. Their body isn't an illusion their sense of self within that body is the illusion. It feels good to help someone because the body has a natural instinct to survive.
