  1. I don't wanna be a buzzkill in any way before you guys get all worked up again about her, but there already was a major thread about her some time ago, so I don't really think we need to repeat this once more. But whatever...
  2. So, returning to the strange "high pitched sounds", do you mean (in the video examples you gave) these slightly shrill sounds whenever one of them speaks an "S"or "-is-" for instance? That's all that I could relate this to.
  3. I don't reeally know what you're talking about when you say "high pitched sounds". Gonna concern myself with that later. For now, here's another one:
  4. @CreamCat How come you don't know? Haven't you watched the latest video?
  5. One more to add to the list
  6. Is Gyan just a differnt way of writing Gnana or a typo? In Sadhguru's Inner Engineering it is called Gnana Yoga which would indeed make more sense of writing it this way, as it would be closer or perhaps more accurate to the root and all the derivates of the word: Gnana -> Knowledge, Knowing, to know and so on. Gyan would be more confusing and misleading in this regard.
  7. @Cortex I'm very sorry to say that this statement imeediately betrays you.
  8. @Shiva Oh boy, same problem with my parents. But, of course, even when I found something good or benefitial for them to watch, they would either not even understand 30% of what was said or just went into denial-mode and weren't open to it at all. So frustrating sometimes😂 You know, all the solution to all the problems would be there, they do exist. But some just prefer the suffering I guess.
  9. @Shiva Absolutely. I'm certainly planning on purchasing one or two in the future.
  10. Now that Leo's gone for a month, just in case you're not already aware of them, you'd hugely benefit from checking out these two marvellous men who I stumbled upon just this week. Let me introduce you to Rüdiger Dahlke and Gerald Hüther. These two men are just absolutely phenomenal! Very broad thinking and big-picture perspectives that reach far beneath the surface to uncover the depths of our psycholgy and behavioural structures. Highly, highly recommended!
  11. First of all: probably the wrong sub-forum. Secondly: What you’re going for, and what Mr. Pandit indicated as well, is most likely already going in the right direction. Becoming “directly conscious” of something ties in with deficiency-cognition and being-cognition (as mentioned in the episode “How your mind distorts reality”). Also, as in the episode “The illusory nature of thought”, it goes hand in hand with the flattening of the illusion as our Lord and Master calls it. So, all in all, “direct consciousness” is becoming conscious of whatever things are for themselves and not how we see them, e.g. for their usefulness, their function or what relative meaning and value is attached to them (most predominantly in relation to us, you and myself) The practicing in and of itself is therefore extremely useful and effective to lessen the quantity and severity of def.-cognition and to ultimately loosen the grip one’s ego has on how we perceive ourselves and the world. I hope this was somehow helpful to you:)
  12. Explanation for those who might have trouble grasping what I'm trying to get across with this 0 / ∞! = X As a partial manifestation of Absolute Infinity, out of total formlessness and no-thing-ness, the finite self (you) emerges (along everything else that is perceivable). X + (1 * ∞) = 1^n = ∞! You as the finite self, thinking that you are separate to everything else "around you", interact with all kinds of "other things" of infinite variety throughout your life. 1^n represents that the entirety of all those interactions and of all this interplay is fundamentally all finite - and, because it's 1 to the n'th power, all of the exact same nature, meaning that everything is ultimately just consciousness interacting with itself in all kinds of differnt ways, even though in the end, it all comes back to 1, no matter how large the number of the power may be. Thus, this is equal to Absolute Infinity, or more precisely Absolute Infinity at play, expressing itself. X - 1^n = 0 Once you, as the finite self, lose all finitudes you're attached to, i.e. your body primarily or all other finite material or non-material acquisitions, you then go back to Source, or Nothingness respectively. Now, if we want to throw karma in the mix, that's debatable, but essentially that's how it goes/ends and finally starts all over again. X + √ X = X ↯ ∴ X = 1^n As the finite self discovers, or gets in touch with its root(s) and its origin, it realises that its total finitude, which it was certain of prior to self-realisation, is an illsuion. Therefore, it is now clear that the finite self is just another emergence of consciousness, which will pass away just like everything else that is finite, but that the real Self is concsiousness itself, which never ceases or fades away.
  13. @zambize Yes I'm aware of that Sorta comes back to the fact that everything's exactly the same thing, essentially. Nothing is really differnt from each other, regardless of how you slice it, combine it or multiply it. EDIT: Consciousness only ever interacts with itself - to the n'th degree. If you know what I'm saying.
  14. @Yoshy Wonderful:) Well, you see, there's really no differnece between life as it is now and a so-called "afterlife". As you can see in the first equation, that which you emerge from is Nothingness - and in the end, to Nothingness you will return. This is a ceaceless cycle. Enlightenment, then, is more or less the realisation that you who expects to be reborn, in the exact same way as you are right now perhaps, is an illusion because you are not differnt from 1^n - not different from anything else that is finite. But, the good news is that the real you which lies underneath all finiteness will remain exactly where it is, what it is, and how it is for eternity. So in the end there is nowhere to go or to come from. This is obviously just a partial fragment of the "whole" explanation but I obviously can't sit here for forever to "explain" enlightenment to you. That's your job to fully grasp and experience.
  15. @Yoshy Would you like me to explain or was your comment a non-serious remark?
