8 posts in this topic

I have a good question for you guys to answer that would really help me out.

Is it possible for you to remember everything vividly? is that what full consciousness is?

@Truth Full consciousness is NOW.

Yeah but I'm talking about the things that you forget. Is it possible to never forget anything? and see every waking moment as though you never went to sleep.

Like, a dream at night that you don't remember or is very vague, I'm talking about that always being clear instead of vague or foggy or clueless.

@Truth Some people have that condition. It's not necessarily good. I prefer to forget things that I don't need to remember. Forgetting is a blessing.

Yes, it is possible. As vividly as you see your hand now.

However, in my experience, it is unimaginably overwhelming.

I am much rather conscious of the very moment in front of me, only. One at a time. Instead of "remembering" all at once.

No, memory is mental imagery. That is not consciousness proper. That is mind activity.

The Absolute cannot be stored in memory. Memory happens inside the Absolute.

This is a crucial mistake. You cannot get to the Absolute through memory.

Yeah it is a blessing but also I'm talking about vividly remembering peak experiences very vividly that are deep and profound and really something to remember, life changing you know?

I get what your sayin', I just dont want to forget the most important things but I realize you just gotta make conscious effort to remember those things.

I'm starting to realize this, I realize that I just don't want to miss an ultimately temporary peak experience, I want full conscious awareness of it so I can remember it vividly and feel good about it, help it inspire me etc. 

thanks for all your answers
