→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: ASSUMING THE REALITY
vertical line Posted on Aug.02.2017 @ 11:15PM EDT by so_teh
Think about how you are in any given situation. Think about the moment you in and how you are.

In the moment, you have to assume the reality of that moment to the best of your capacity. Meditation is necessary because your assumption of a reality is never exactly as it is. So you come down and sit or you go out and walk. Letting that background stimulation, organic or mechanic, put itself in it's right place. If you don't do that regularly your mind will always be muddy. So, make sure you meditate. Make sure you graduate to meditation every so often.

vertical line Do you understand how fragile everything is?

Not frail but fragile.

You don't have to know the science behind it.

Just realize it.

Then you'll learn by practice to act as if everything is fragile.

Understand?

You'll start to appreciate this fact. Because it is beautiful.

vertical line "I began with nothingness. Nothingness is the same as fullness. In infinity full is no better than empty. Nothingness is both empty and full."

"This nothingness or fullness we name the PLEROMA. Therein both thinking and being cease, since the eternal and infinite possess no qualities. In it no being is, for he then would be distinct from the pleroma, and would possess qualities which would distinguish him as something distinct from the pleroma."

vertical line Quote: "PEACE"
.........

The practice of peace is a minority practice.

Take a walk in town and you'll notice peace is too idealist for them.

Furthermore good people don't correlate peace to anything but to some fleeting calm moments.

So, the good word of Teachers, great teachers, are rarely absorbed in the ear of folks.

Even more common is an awakening experience interpreted as a "spiritual" experience.

I'm eternally BUMMED.

vertical line No not really. As Miguel has pointed out the Jesus of Islam is more a wisdom sage of transcendental truths and timeless virtues instead of an apocalyptictal MIRACLE worker concerned with relgious dogmatism, [woof?]

Like he said when his disciples complained of the stink of a dead dog in the street - "How white are its teeth."

vertical line Willing suspension of disbelief is really a supernatural force. We are so accustomed to this nowadays that we need to remember our reality. So if you were to go for a weekend of silent retreat and to come again into your 9-5 you may be able to see yourself fall back.

Willing suspension of disbelief is the ability to work miracles. Our TV, Internet, Books, Media, and Occupations, well, is how we are using it.

vertical line A great amount of culture goes unrelated to my vision. So anything that is "new to me" is something I have to learn not something I was ever near or surrounded near by. Therefore, I turn away to my woods and invent my own culture. I don't call the thing culture I invent. It's more like some bullsh!t from a dumbass (me).

Good day, sir.
