Well, whatever, wont waste my time with this kind of talk. No point talking about "enlightenment", because no one wants It. After enlightenment, its very joyful to discover that your entire life was an illusion, and your misery unreal... You also become free of pain and "gain" some useful siddhis...

 But then  the scary part starts, and you lose EVERYTHING, and you discover that no-self is true self. Life ends with this, you are all alone, not lonely, but ALL alone.

On the plus side, my life is full of joy and fun now. All I can is... Only go for T/R If you have no choice... Otherwise stay with your fantasy, be happy with It, nothing wrong this

I like that..."only go for TR if you have no choice." I went for TR once. Then I realized that I do have a choice. I have a choice regarding how I define the things that happen in life. I have a choice where I put my attention. I have the ability to decipher what is true and what is not through my own faculties in my own experience.

Reality is right in front of you. I happened to just finish holding my 3 week old baby girl while she fell asleep in my arms. That's real. Fantasy would be disregarding that because some distant voice told you along the way that it wasn't real and that you didn't exist. I dont "go for" anything. I dont defer. Im here.

Sorry, "you" are not "T/R"... Im not saying this to offend... Its obvious just by reading your post. I am not going to point out the reasons because you seem to be enjoying the illusion and Im afraid I would ruin things for you... So Ill just shut up..

Have a nice... Uh... Christmas and baby raising?

You're right I'm not "TR." I'm disillusioned entirely. Thanks for noticing. Take care.

Yeah, agree... You still live life, but you dont take the activities to be real...

Im not even sure you were able to follow what happened in that conversation Fritz. You'd both do better to drop the spiritual enlightenment facade and get real. Or not. It's really none of my concern.
