Mr. Quinn, If you would allow me to waste just a minute more of your time?
When I first found this forum I was interested in the discussion going on here, especially your opinion's on Enlightenment, so I figured that you might want to engage in an open dialog concerning this subject, so I started in to see what type of response and reaction I would receive to certain topics and subjects from you.
Almost immediately you were making assumptions about me and my character, calling me names and looking to dismiss anything I had to say as "meaningless" "a value worth "None" and a waste of your time.
How is dismissing me as a waste of your time, helping me along the path to my Enlightenment, Mr. Quinn?
It now appears that you use your Enlightenment as a shield, as opposed to a guiding light for us "ordinary schmucks", you seem to be more interested in defending your personal interests than helping others.
What I found interesting is that you wear your Enlightenment as a Badge of Honor and a position of assumed elevation, which is very off putting to say the least.
It appears that you have confused egoism with egotism. Perhaps in the future when you are presented with questions regarding your lofty self proclaimed pedestal, you should refer people to your written work and spare them the unpleasant experience of being subjected to your pride full, insecure and defensive ego.
Now with regard to myself ...I do not claim to be Enlightened, Unenlightened, openly, secretly or other wise, I have found no use in these arbitrary titles and conceptual identifications, they are completely irrelevant.
The only "claim" that I will Copt to if pressed is that I am Aware, nothing more, nothing less, no books, no titles, no urge to pull the plank from my brothers eye, no messianic complex, no latent guruness, no infinite wisdom... just Aware.
When I stated that I do not believe that what I am saying is fact, does not mean that I do not accept responsibility for my words, what I meant was that I am not so arrogant to assume that my OPINION and PERSPECTIVE on any one subject should be considered fact.
Now would it be possible for you to come down from your Brahmans Throne and answer this lowly, arrogant, waste of time, a few questions and help me remove some of my delusion and ignorance?
