Re: Enlightened Am

I have recently gotten a schizophrenia diagnosis, I have mentioned I used to care about philosophy and truth, and that I thought I knew what most people never get close to, but it feels as if people have a perception that any knowledge similar to say some of Jesus' knowledge, and a feeling of being ...

Re: "I am" my reason

I have a feeling that the your 'Why you exist' would be different from the concept of my 'why I exist'. why are you interested in 'coming up with nothing'? it basically means *not finding the thing I wanted to 'come up with'' which sounds quite ordinary, everybody seems to have issues where they 'ca...

Re: "A violent man will die a violent death!"

I'd say it's akin to the idea of the "good tree bears good fruit, a good tree does not bear bad fruit". A violent man dies a violent death because his mind state is violent; if he was a calm person, he would die calm. It speaks about how the people are measured by their effects, and my guess is that...

Re: The Qualities of a Divinely Inclined Person.....

the Kevin/GF notion that the universe is wholly causal, leading to the notion that no aspect of a person is due to his own doing; that in fact there is no such thing as "own doing", that it's all "Nature's doing". This is the idea by which Kevin rejects especially emotions Note: you can't reject em...

Re: Why I want to participate in this forum

Psychologists have implied that genius is the term describing people who have extraordinary capabilities, and originally, it seemed that was the situation. However, more recent findings indicate that genius would be the normal case if we didn't screw up our children. This damage isn't intentional, ...

Anyhow, I do believe people here can answer your question, including me, atleast, in the spirit of logic, and maybe less so in action, to me, what David said is a hard hitting statement if you really let it affect your being, but it's also a relatively simple logical conclusion in essence.

Alex, why do you care what others think it means though? what if they were wrong? you couldn't know unless you thought about it logically too. That is a good question. One part of it is serious.

Re: Faith and Courage.

I should add: Courage isn't just facing death, because it's just as hard to face life. Courage isn't just living, because it's just as hard to let go and die. Most accurately, courage is a willingness to die, be reborn and live anew many times in your one life. If you define a willingness to die an...

Re: The Qualities of a Divinely Inclined Person.....

Ah, interesting. There's two ways, there's the one where you sacrifice your attachments with a love of truth, although motivated by the ego, your sacrifices lead you to undermine the ego and destroy it. However, then there would be the other way where one is attached to sacrifice rather than truth, ...

You're definitely overflowing with something, but it isn't Truth. Not yet at any rate. What might it be then, David?

Let's say for a moment you could leave Logic and Reason behind. What would that be like? And how would you explain it without logic and reason? Via the sharing of one's personal experiences of life, death, rebirth, and the developing of a living relationship with the Infinite. Don't you think the s...

Re: One and ninety-nine sheep

The one sheep is the most important, because the kingdom is One. He has to abandon all the *things* to find the kingdom, which he does only when it is possible to love God more than the perceived concrete things of the world. That's why I think he talks about the 99 as opposed to the One sheep. Imag...
