  1. But from where? How did you already know?
  2. Good example of how the mind only sees what it choses to see.
  3. It's all God. The imagining that we are all watching film strips together is God. There is only one.
  4. And is there such a thing? Or is that only more of the illusion at play?
  5. All the leaders on Earth should be the first ones offered a seat so they could experience the "Overview Effect" for themselves.
  6. Thanks to the big bang the singularity is spread out all over the appearance of time and space.
  7. If imagining a body why not imagine a chair for it to sit in.
  8. Before there was a chair there was the potential for a chair. You made the chair a chair.
  9. It's as if each person is contained within their own bubble of understanding and at best verbal communication is only the surface of the bubble making limited contact with another bubble. Here is a picture of the forum members ........
  10. @ivankiss Have you seen the movie Arrival. The aliens can communicate vast amounts of information by producing a single logogram.
  11. I say you started before birth. It's the reason you took on this birth in the first place. Perhaps to finish what you started.
  12. The embodiment of Truth has multitudes of avatars.
  13. @BipolarGrowth Let's talk about being. The being behind the avatar. Take Leo for instance. Would you still recognize him even if he manifested as a different avatar at a different time and place?
  14. You can certainly "die" without taking the body with you during meditation. In fact it's almost impossible for most to do so.
  15. @Alan Reji In a sense we are all avatars. The only difference is some see this and some don't.
  16. Don't know who you've been listening to but who ever they are they have a hell of a spiritual ego.
  17. There's a good story about Sri Nisargadatta that when a spiritual seeker would come to him seeking his advise he would first ask them "What is your most deepest insight so far?" And the seeker would give a long answer that they held as truth. And Nisargadatta would just wait till they were finished and no matter what answer they gave he would always reply with "No, that's not it"
