  1. Why do we say everything is Consciousness? So one of the main confusions arises, when certain people starts alluding to the fact that everything is Consciousness, and that that the fundamental "matter" of Reality or Existence so to speak is— Consciousness. What happens is— There's this gap in understanding of the view or in the method of investigating into the very nature of Reality, since- "everyone" be it a living or non-living, being- present in this Universe is playing its fundamental role as a part of that Universal whole itself. A Human is a sentient being, why? because a Human makes sense of the world (Reality) it perceives through senses, that is to say that a human makes use of senses inherently to comprehend the world around it, or world in which it is living. So, can we say that a Human is actually trying to become aware of the world it is in? Yes, so the concept we can use here to identify this phenomenon of a human to make sense of Reality could be— Awareness. Now, this awareness can interchangeably be used by other words or labels such as Consciousness or the act of being Conscious. Now, one thing is very straight and clear which is that if I'm alive and my breath is still going on and heart is pumping blood and the brain is functioning as it should, no matter what I'm doing, where I'm at, how I'm existing, my intrinsic nature always asks me to be involved in some sort of sense making—Always, its just is the way it is, it's not me on whose "will" this thing is operating or acting, it's the Modus Operandi of being in a state of Human or being a Human. (And perhaps this true for every other animal or whatever you can think of-!) With that said, I believe this is the case with every single thing you can see or perceive as an object, thought, sense, feeling, emotions etcetras for that matter. Every individual phenomenon or the occurrence in the "fabric" of your AWARENESS/CONSCIOUSNESS, IS aware of its own self as well, because YOU are aware— of anything you can perceive or sense or even think about, and because you can think about it or feel or sense it— is the very reason for that particular thing being AWARE of its own self. How could it be possible, that if you are Aware of a thing and that it's not Aware of its own self? If it is not aware of its own self you won't be aware of it at all. It's just too necessary for both to be aware of their own-selves, failing of which in either one's case would result in "non-origination". "Habitually patterned consciousness" So is it HABIT resulting in Consciousness, that is in this act of making us being "aware"? Yes— Habit of not only physical action or reaction, but even the psychological processes, that are habitually driven. So, now let's say you are dead or lost your mental or even physical capacities to make any sense at all, the result would be non-origination— NOTHING. Cuz you are dead and whatever this world (Reality) was for you, went along with you, just as if you are watching a regular T.V. show and the moment you or anyone else switch it off, everything's just gone and vanished with a blink of an eye. Now my question is— Is this state of non-origination (let's say NOTHING) is Consciousness (a state of being AWARE) or not? Because if it is, then only prepositions like— Everything is Consciousness-! stands True. Bottom line is EVERYTHING— EVERY DAMN THING, IS AWARE OF ITSELF, THUS EVERYTHING I CAN SAY IS— CONSCIOUSNESS. NO MATTER, EITHER "I" AM CONSCIOUS OF IT OR NOT. Because Everything is Conscious of its own, it's me who got to work and explore this "MYSTERY" which is there always upfront and thus is no mystery at all.
  2. Non-Origination is not non-existence for me, and yes as someone rightly said- EVERYTHING IS EXISTENCE-! And yes- Nothingness is existence, not non-existence.
  3. For those not aware of Upanishads aka Vedanta: These are the philosophical texts with soul mysteries of nature, also known as last part of Vedas (4) and hence known as Vedanta ( Veda + anta-or end ) Since Adi Shankaracharya interpreted these teachings of Upanishads in non dualistic fashion so is his teachings known as " ADVAITA VEDANTA ". This thread is for some useful and substantial knowledge we can attain from Upanishads, learn and use some of the teachings in our practical life while pursuing various practices, these ancient scriptures are without a doubt really useful in the pursuit of Self-Actualization. Thanks.
  4. You've done the ryt thing, really! Dont worey. wwooppss ???
  5. Yepp indeed. More so, many beginners mistaken this as some discipline that deals with just theory, literature or just some other worldly mumbo-jumbo let alone something too similar to the History where you are just reading works of previous thinkers or philosophers of antiquity. Rather, Philosophy is a way of life, a life-style, a discipline that if you practice enouff and refine it, can give you a lot of clarity in variety of subject-matters and all facets of life, it helps and removes the veil from the many boxes (illusory) that are merely possessed by the spells of ignorance, it's like the counter spell a wizard/witch might carry to everything that leads to vagueness, illusion and foggy object of thought.
  6. Well-Explained, DocWatts!

  17. Namaste Ji! I'll suggest you go with Pranayama! 1. BHASTRIKA 2. KAPALBHATI 3. ANULOM-VILOM *this one is Gold* 5 minutes each one, you can even start with 2-3 minutes each, and then consecutively increase the time duration. I would like to suggest a few yog gurus if you can understand Hindi — (1) Swami Ramdev- https://youtube.com/c/SwamiRamdevOfficial (2) Nityanandam Shree- https://youtube.com/c/NityanandamShree These are the links of their official channels, you'll find the videos of all the pranayamas mentioned above, else you can search respectively for the pranayama you wanna search for, I'll recommend you go with the second one for detailed explanation (Nityanandam Shree). For Videos in English, I like this dude~ I'll suggest you to not do it without under in some expert's supervision, since it is an advanced yoga, start first with basics first, see how do you feel after. best regards.
  18. Welp, not only Chomsky's POV, but the POV of Islam itself, why is it the way it is? to understand it's root foundation, or to understand the root foundation of any social structure whatsoever, it's really essential to look from the POV of that structure itself, because things might be beyond all philosophies, theories and criticisms but that doesn't mean we should not pay attention to all of that, they are a great tool, but sometimes problems go beyond all theories and personal POVs. And even I wouldn't mind saying maybe it's not a problem at all, it's just a matter of a few gone and others coming in that the problem will not be a problem, that's a periodic happening after all.
  19. To manifest various degrees of potential of the ever pervading consciousness, only faculty you have is your mind, and yes the brain is part of it and it does play certain functions upto an extent, mind why? Brain alone can't do no shit, it needs a full fledged fused structure for that matter, so coming back to the op, to manifest various potentials of ever pervading consciousness or let's say to unravel it's potential we have got mind which has certain capabilities upto some extent and limitations, how am I saying this? Bcuz I don't or can't access all the frequencies or see let's say what a certain kind of insect can see, it might be accessing the levels of consciousness which I can't given my capabilities and limitations, So ofc, it will happen cause it's an important and perhaps one of the most important organ(brain) that lets you touch/feel/experience— consciousness at various degrees, any hampering with the already present chemicals in brain or let's say in whole structure(body) in certain amount may/may not alter the states of consciousness, since it's all there is already in it's entirety, all it takes on your part is a miniscule change, to make you go ohvie-whoavie about it. The only point we can be sure about is, consciousness is not "generated" by brain, on the contrary brain is and rest everything that you see and can't see, categorically speaking.
