  1. If you want to look at the World as if it was an object, then it becomes indescribable. The World is infinite with infinite variations. In this world I'm sitting with my laptop on my lap, in another world I don't exist, in another world I'm sitting on the ceiling, and in another world I have a dick on my forehead. This multidimensional World is infinite in every aspect. It's like a TV with infinite channels that show infinite movies in infinite variations. So the structure of the World is simply Absolute Infinity. But Consciousness chooses which channel to watch, and here comes the love into the picture. Consciousness by her nature expresses love towards everything that she perceives, and she always chooses to perceive the objects and events that teach her to express her love in deeper and deeper ways. If she finds it helpful to perceive structure in the World, then she will perceive the structure. If she desires to perceive the most profound simplicity of being, then she won't perceive a structure because Being is prior to structure. You see, Reality is not something out there. Things can only exist when they're perceived, so Reality is not really an object. Reality is the seeming relationship between the perceiver and the perceived. So when we're talking about the structure of Reality, we're really talking about the structure of this relationship. And the way Consciousness relates to the World is "structured" to deepen (and therefore maximize) her love. Let me know if you disagree with any of this because I want to understand your honest perspective on this.
  2. What are you serious about? Are you serious about your goals? Are you serious about getting a girlfriend/boyfriend? Are you serious about earning more money? Are you serious about reaching enlightenment? Are you serious about knowing the Truth? Are you serious about becoming more loving? Are you serious about your relationships with others? Are you serious about how others see you? Are you serious about helping others? Are you serious about your responsibilities? Are you serious about fairness? Are you serious about faithfulness? Are you serious about life? Are you serious about death? ************************* Notice that seriousness is an attitude. This attitude can appear only when we don't understand deeply the impermanent and relative nature of reality. Seriousness can come only from short-sightedness. We might feel that we need to be serious about our goals in order to reach them. But in reality, we only need a sincere desire for going forward. We might feel that we have to be serious about our relationship with others to make it balanced and beneficial for both sides. But in reality, we only need to be sincere with others and with ourselves. We might feel that we have to be serious about death in order to live a long and fulfilled life. But in reality, we only need to be sincere in admitting that we don't even know what death is. This is my perspective. Now I'm interested in yours.
  3. You're suggesting that this reality has more love than the alternative reality where I have a dick on my forehead. *dickhead emoji* Do you see the problem here? If you're saying that reality is structured to maximize love then what you're suggesting is that this reality has more love than all the other alternative realities. It's the same attitude as saying that the US is the best country in the world, without ever visiting any other country. I think love is not a result of a structure. Love is the fundamental substance of existence. The worst reality structure that you can ever imagine is made of love and expresses infinity love, just by existing. Everything that exists is love, because it is true.
  4. Karma is a scary concept only from the point of view of the ego. Karma means "doing", and it's a self-chosen doing. What many people don't like to admit is that deep down (on the soul level) we like difficulty more than comfort. We like constant change more than a predictable life. Karma is not an outside force, Karma is what the soul chooses to do. If you have a difficult life then in that life there's a very important and profound lesson that the soul wants to learn. If the ego terminates this life then the "karmic consequence" is that the soul might skip this lesson now, and she might retry to learn this lesson later when she's more developed. But a more developed soul will play the same game on a higher level which will result in an even more extraordinary life. When we have suicidal thoughts, we're trying to move towards comfort by escaping the pain. What we don't realize is that the goal of the soul is never comfort.
  5. Then please elaborate. I've done 5-meo many times, I've experienced infinite love, and I still don't understand what you mean when you're saying that reality is structured to maximize love. I also think that you didn't understand what I meant when I said that structure is an illusion, so let me elaborate on that. If you look at a house from the outside, you could say that the house is over there and the structure of the house is that it has 4 rooms. But then go inside the house and now the house is something that's around you, and it doesn't have four rooms anymore because, now from your perspective, the house starts at the walls that surround you. Do you see now that structure is relative to your perspective? Structure is not an objective thing, structure is one of the pattern-matching functions of the human mind.
  6. I needed a whole day to get to this insight. Nice! Leo, your answer got my attention yesterday because it didn't feel right. Now I think I know why: what you're saying suggests that love depends on structure. If reality is structured to maximize love then this means that there could be an alternative reality which is not structured to maximize love. And if there could be an alternative reality of this kind that means that there already is (because of the infinite nature of existence). Do you see the problem here? I think reality doesn't have a structure because structure is imaginary, it's a relational mapping in the mind. So if reality had a structure that would mean that the fundamental nature of reality is comprehensible by the mind. I'm not trying to pick on your word choice, I'm just showing you that your audience is ready for your next level teachings.
  7. Balance is key. If you're in the mood to be a doormat for a couple of days/weeks/lifetimes, then be a doormat. But at the same time take everybody as your doormat as well. It works very well with friends: do every favor your friends ask you to do, and ask favors when you need some help from them. Being a doormat in real life is not how Hollywood movies present it. People underestimate how much social respect can you get just by doing simple favors. Also, it's not the "doormat" thing that you're concerned about, you just don't want to look weak. And that's a natural concern. Many people who meditate don't pay attention to their body and they become weak. Don't make this mistake. Start working out or do some tiring sport regularly and you won't feel weak. Other people will also perceive you as an attractive kind guy instead of a doormat.
  8. The balance is love. You have to love yourself as much as you love the other person. And don't try to "teach yourself", life will do it for you, you just have to pay attention to the lessons. The perspective of "being stepped on" is relative to the social conditioning that you have. Society might say that you let someone to step on you but actually you're just acting out of unconditional love. One thing to be very careful about though... You can give everything to a person, but never waste time on them. Wasting time is the most harmful thing for your development and usually nobody is benefiting from it. I hope I answered your question, otherwise I can elaborate on it in more detail
  9. I don't want to spoiler it for you because 5meo will answer this question. If you won't find the answer in your experience then come back to me and I will try to guide your attention
  10. If we're just sitting around, doubting our own potentials then nothing's gonna ever change. Here we are, hundreds of people on this forum with genuine enlightenment experiences, interconnected with the speed of light by our tech devices. We are already creating a grid of consciousness around this planet, a nest for a new society. So I don't want to just sit and wonder if it's ever gonna happen, I want to make it happen. And I might need your help.
  11. You're right, I can only relate to words in the way I'm using them. And I observed that whenever I'm using the words "highest" or "absolute" I'm placing a limit to my perception. I just wanted to direct some awareness to that
  12. What are you talking about? I was offering you an experiment to test your point of view. You don't even have to break the law, you can try the same thing with your flower and with your dog. If you don't want to do an experiment to test your statements then who's the dogmatic here? I grew up in a small town in a poor country, so I've been on many pig slaughters when I was a kid. I've seen the pigs' eyes and heard their sound when the knife opened their neck... What kind of experiences do you have with killing? If you have any experience, do you remember what you've felt? Or did you suppress your feelings?
  13. You should compare humans to a carnivorous and a herbivorous primate. Oh wait... there aren't any carnivorous primates, only one insectivorous... Eating meat was a survival strategy for humans in the ice ages. I don't know if you've noticed, but we're not in the ice ages anymore...
  14. Get a knife, go to your window and kill your flower with it. Then invite over one of your friends and cut her throat. Tell me if you felt a difference.
  15. I think you're oversimplifying and denying your own emotional intelligence. Whenever you're feeling something, the reason behind a feeling is never a "just". Feelings are infinetely complex and intelligent. Spend some time with them, get familiar with them. I suggested a false equivalence between humans and animals, sorry about that. Humans and animals are not equal because of their difference in the depth of their consciousness. Humans have a deeper, more sophisticated consciousness. The same way, animals and plants are not equal because animals have a more sophisticated consciousness. You're right, objectively speaking there's nothing wrong with eating meat. There's nothing wrong with anything, good and bad are imaginary distinctions. But subjectively now, whenever you're sitting down to have a meal, you have a choice. Whether you're eating meat or plants, you're contributing to killing them. But you can choose which depth of consciousness you support killing. So, when you have this choice, what are your reasons for choosing to kill such a sophisticated creature as an animal? Don't generalize it, I'm interested in your own subjective reasons for choosing to eat meat.
