Re: The Toolbox of the Master

Oh oh, being offended is not a good sign, Bob. It reveals a bad conscience, probably stemming from the lie that your sacred "unconditional love" is not just another instance of ordinary conditional love. They do say that prostitution is the oldest profession in the world. We can also add that it is...

Re: The Toolbox of the Master

Bob, thanks for that. Thanks for your interest and questions, Dennis. Writing continues to help my mind become more and more centered and focused, along with growing in self-understanding/self-annhilation. Which includes helping to 'fully' erase the old fundamentally false and long-playing 'tapes' ...

Re: The Toolbox of the Master

You can't live on love alone, Bob. I too have often made mention of Love's necessary companions - Truth and Wisdom. And If you're referring to money here, it will come when and as it's necessary. Anyway, here are my best thoughts on the Ark project for now. Which are of course subject to change. Ho...

Inside you there is an "unextinguishable" fire that needs an external source to sustain it....? Sorry, but this does not compute.

Don't I know how the honey keeps the stinger strong. :) Such sort of humor is perhaps acceptable to share among kindred spirits, Cory. But amongst the general public I find it's in bad taste. It serves only to reinforce and perpetuate the human madness. Tis a season for everything under the sun, re...

Re: The Toolbox of the Master

I'll agree we're in a different place. If you need to believe I'm at the pink cloud stage, go for it. It's your loss, not mine. I said "at best" you're in the 'pink cloud' stage of the process. And with that I'll keep my real thoughts on the matter to myself. Remembering here that a few words to th...

Re: Life after death

Logic is like a fire that consumes everything in its path. It is only when everything has been consumed that the stillness is able to emerge. It can't emerge while those fires are still burning. Of course, most people are too busy trying to put those fires out, their egos desperately trying to save...

Actually, I've already succeeded in this, so my task I suppose is to succeed a bit more, and something tells me you might be enslaved to the narcissism that would make any cooperation with me unlikely.

Re: Life after death

Logic cannot make a person aware of any of these things. Why? Because logic is of sentient self-righteousness. Only the spirit of a pure heart pushing away all self-righteous thinking can come to know these things of the cause of their suffering. A mind that is bound up in logic and/or reason is es...

There's an overlap between seduction, healing, shamanism, and it also relates to Kierkegaard's dialectical redoubling. "Dialectical redoubling?"

"The Outsider needs to discover that he is in a world that is so full of misery that his only duty is to love."

Re: Colin Wilson

I can't help but wonder if Colin Wilson ever figured it all out. I read somewhere that he said it might take him another 20 years to do so. Though I really have my doubts as to whether he ever did. Wilson was however sharp enough to realize that "evolution has been trying to create a human being ca...

Re: Life after death

This response tells me that the one thing that exists that is beyond the existence of logic, which is compassion, is not being demonstrated here. As Bob Michaels pointed out in his quote from Paul, if there is not love being shown, then one's words are as clanging cymbals. Logic is a handy servant,...

The Sunday papers run a feature in which eminent men and women are asked their opinion of the best books of the year.

That is a valid criticism. My youth might have been too clever for wisdom. I was not 'trying', but simply did a habitual move.

Re: Intuition and the Wordless Nerve

What J. Krishnamurti meant by Love is absolutely different from the common sense definition of Love. His Love is Love for the Infinite. Krishnamurti said the greatest of all gifts is "impersonal love". Meaning having true and abiding love for all human beings. I mean, he practically rejected whatev...

Re: Intuition and the Wordless Nerve

J. Krishnamurti to Rom Landau: "My inner awareness was always there....." "It has to be there in all its fullness....." These remarks are the key to it all. Yet Krishnamurti never came to a deep understanding of just what he was saying here. Just why was his "inner awareness" always there in him? "...
