  1. What do you make of someone like Ramana Maharshi who seemed to not experience fear and lived to be 70?
  2. If you are not thoughts and feelings then they must something other than you. Can there be anything other than you? That would imply duality. Just something to think about.
  3. Satisfaction only occurs when one stops looking for it.
  4. This seems to be the right answer as far as I can tell. It just doesn't make sense to my finite mind because if what Leo says is true and what I'm experiencing now is all there is, that means that everything that isn't here in this now moment is being excluded for some unknowable reason. Some people would say everything IS here and now but that doesn't seem to be the case in my direct experience. There's a distinction I'm making between something existing in actuality versus something existing in potentiality which Leo would say is imaginary, and I've experienced that distinction break down on psychedelics before, but right now that distinction exists and it seems completely arbitrary why I'm experiencing what I'm experiencing right now instead of something else.
  5. God can create an infinite variety of dreams, but if God is selfless it doesn't have any reason to choose one dream over another. So why is God deciding to dream it's a human being right now instead of something else?
