Meet me half way
« on: October 02, 2017, 02:24:31 pm »
Hello Jed.

I'm confused with these words. Is 'nothing and everything' that same as existence/awareness? Or are they still apart of duality?

Hi there:

Welcome to the forum. I get that you are confused and anyone trying to think their way through this will definitely be confused. You mind can only take you so far and then you have to go it ''alone''. If I try to explain those terms you will only be getting more stories. I suggest you just contemplate those terms and see how well you can embrace both at the same time. It's illogical and paradoxical, but I didn't set up this game. It's very simple, but not very easy.

Love ya, Jed.

After the experience of death, is it natural for Maya to continue to perpetuate itself? It seems like the 'hardest' part is over with. Now, it's like the illusions fall off on their own. Nothing lasts. Everything continues. Maya pops up here and there but dies slowly naturally. Before, it would seem like it would take effort where as now it's feels like a light death to things that appear.

After death there is no need for Maya. She is strictly a byproduct of mind and ego.

You where never born and thus can never die, so there is nothing to fret about.

Love ya, Jed.

Ok, I'm happily dancing in circles with a sword in my hand swinging away at everything. I'm owning this dance floor. Will reach out if needed. Thanks for nothing. ;D ;)

Any movies and/or books that you recommend that might help with the development of H/A?

The Zero Theorem, The Thirteenth Floor, Inception, but reading and contemplating the writings of Nisargadatta is the best thing you can do.

Love ya, Jed

Awesome. I so happen to enjoy the writing style of Nis. Will revisit his book I Am That:)

Pretty much finishing up your second book and I'm passed the part where you were talking about the movies the graduate, cast away and about schmidt. I can't help but resonate with everything youve talked about..I'm Ben..young..nothing really to lose like a flower that gets plucked out of the ground..my roles were'nt fully clothed so it was pretty easy to take off..so here I am..pretty much contextless I'd say..

My days of living have been fairly simple. I eat, sleep, and continue to play my role as the seeker although I am starting to see through it.. What now? What artifical context am I going to play in this life? I see two paths I could take..I am nearing the end of my college career. The first 3 years have been hell. I was a nobody in my major. I guess to people I was just that kid but now its pretty exiciting to see that all change. I've made a presence within my collegues and starting to make a name for myself. I see this as building a artifical context for this life. I've been challenged with interacting with everyone and now I'm starting to get the feel for playing a character. I'll admit I find this more exciting and enjoyable than what I've been doing for the last 3 years as this process has unfolded.

What I'm shaky about is having to move back in with my parents after college, this is not what I wnat to do at all. The emotional energy is ridicoulously toxic. To be honest, I'm afraid of that happening, not really, but really.

Right now I see two context i can play. One is what would have played out if it weren't for this T/R ****. The other is more exicitng and entirely new life that the old me would have been fearful to pursue. F u c k. I guess I'm looking for advice on how to go about deciding..or maybe I already do and still too scared to go with it.....
