Title: Meet me half way
Post by: myusername 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.

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.....

..buh but there is no...I bet these jokes are pretty mundane to you by now...anyways, yes I do. Excited to play human again : - )
Title: Re: Meet me half way
Post by: myusername on November 05, 2017, 09:51:43 pm
Better yet, human adult. Makes interacting with everyone a lot smoother and fun in my opinion. The drama is still there but it's light and playful

People don't have free-will, no one has free will. To be human is to be emotionally invested in everything. No one chooses T/R. People think they want T/R but no one does really. Human behavior is predictable once you see it for what it is. Everyone is reactive. No one can help them. No one can change another because there is not other. It just is. There is nothing you can do. Everything is being done. Sit back and relax, enjoy the show. The show shall unfold. It's mysterious as to how and why anything is. There's no point at all in talking about T/R to any person, even as a simple conversation. Really though. If you think talking to a person about T/R might make you appear more intellectual, jokes on you. No one gives a **** about enlightenment. No on really cares. How does an awakened actor explain to the other characters that everything is not true? Uh, they don't. Just shut up and play your role. That's it.

Now, yes. It struck me last night out of nowhere with no escape and that's what came out. So much wasted energy on trying to change people. So much accumulated emotional energy thinking I could. Why not just focus on my self?  ::)

Whats your experience like being around a large group of people been over time or just interacting with people? My experience now is that im pretty sensitive to every one. When i give a class presentation, it feels like it just took a shot a addrenaline. When talking to people, i automatically feel denser. I even fall out of role at times which gets pretty, idk, awkward i guess...would love to hear your thoughts
Title: Re: Meet me half way

Not many thoughts here... but nothing wrong with what you are experience, but never think it's real.

Can I️ ever convince a human that they donít have Free-Will? Can I️? Isnít it in human nature to believe they have Free-Will? Even to the scientists who think they donít have Free-Will are stagnant in their beliefs. They simply adopted another belief: I️ donít have Free-Will. They moved from one belief to another and never really dropping both beliefs altogether. So, can humans ever realize they donít have Free-Will? I️ guess they donít have a.....

Who would you like to convince? Yourself or someone else.

Look and see, if you don't know what you never thought is, then how could you have free will. You can't control one of the most intimate aspects of what appears to be you... you thoughts... and then in addition, you don't know what you are going to do about them until you've done it... to late.

But who cares, really?

Love ya, Jed.
