Re: Enlightened! Really?

The common view assumes that space and time are the fundamental reality of the world, consciousness is an artifact of the brain and millions of years of evolution. Vedantic view is that consciousness is the fundamental reality, time and space and human body are just experiences running on top of it...

Re: The Embodiment of Essence

The automatic action of stream-entry is the realization that there is one action in all of the universe. It is complete flow. The automatic action of essence embodiment is the knowing that all action is your action, as your essence encompasses all of essence (paradoxically still individual).

The Embodiment of Essence

There is an occurrence of great magnitude other than enlightenment. Enlightenment is the achievement of the 8th stage of the 10 Oxherding Pictures . The sense of doership at the 8th stage falls away along with self-pride in any achievement or attainment. One stage before, the 7th, is the point of st...

Re: The Occurrence of Ultimate Enlightenment

If there's a second dark night, there's no reason there won't be a third and a fourth. When is it enough? Suffering does end. The second dark night refers to the dark night of the purification of spirit a la St. John of the Cross. I was using this reference to suggest that your belief that you have...

Re: The Occurrence of Ultimate Enlightenment

Corrections: The subjective is your "higher self," not essence itself. It is non-physical and the subject of your experience. Essence is really in charge, not the subjective. Enlightenment and the whole spiritual line of development in terms of the 10 Oxherding Pictures is not about merging with the...

Positive and Negative Service

There are two manners of being in the world. You may choose to be doing one or the other, or both at the same time. The negative pole of service (work, effortless or hard) is feminine, not bad in any way. It involves "being done" in the sense of being worked by an internal driver. You do what you ne...

Second Birth

There is a type of awakening called Second Birth by a spiritual community called Waking Down in Mutuality . It involves a "landing in" or "dropping into" your body in a way that is unique to Waking Down. It comes about through the reception of transmission from someone in their "Second Life," either...

Re: The Occurrence of Ultimate Enlightenment

I have not experienced any suffering like this. I must have very frail sensibilities if I need protection from not much suffering. You have not experienced it because, perhaps, your quest was to stop that experience by protecting and insulating that what was suffering? This is done generally by the...

Re: The Occurrence of Ultimate Enlightenment

OK, you have a different definition of seeking. Parsons means seeking for enlightenment. It's like an itch you can't scratch; you just gotta have it and now , right away. Enlightenment for most people is not the idea of causality. They're not sure what it is, but it's the end of all problems, worry...

Re: What is consciousness?

df: The Creating Universal One and Whole is not independent of its individual focuses, but it has a consciousness that is its own. It doesn't become aware of everything one thing at a time. Time only exists in physical reality; non-physically there is no time. It's all simultaneous. How is the conc...

Re: What is consciousness?

You said: Very true, but you will not be God or "All That Is" (the Creating Universal One and Whole). In a way you are, because it is all individuals, but you will not become aware of everything it is aware of at enlightenment. You won't even be aware of everything your subjective is aware of, let ...

Re: The Occurrence of Ultimate Enlightenment

divine focus: Seeking stops when the seeker "collapses" (or whatever). It's the seeker who seeks, not consciousness (the "absolute"). It could be boundless if there's no seeking, right? You are not reasoning things through. How does the absolute reveal itself if it doesn’t seek (move) within itself...

Your subjective self has to agree to anything that happens to you; otherwise, it could never happen. You are that powerful as consciousness.

Re: The Occurrence of Ultimate Enlightenment

The experience is one of losing all sense of self tied to a body-mind. This is the dualistic remembrance of non-dual, object-less awareness of silent mind which subsequently suffuses dualistic subject/object perception with peace ... the peaceful, locus of consciousness, experiential "I." I do have...

Re: The Occurrence of Ultimate Enlightenment

The experience is one of losing all sense of self tied to a body-mind. That's called a dissociative state . It's another of those self-protection schemes of the mind and not a solution to suffering. But for those who need such protection, after seeing glimpsing of the dark abyses of emptiness and t...

Re: What is consciousness?

We can ignore the intricates of time by using the term wisdom or conscience, can we not?
