I try to be witty with parallels... and no one gets it.

When I used the words "continuity" and "coherence" were you thinking that I was speaking of physics?

How about this: It seems the coherence quotient isn't so far to the right on the bell curve.

I can't say I have understood all your witticisms but I understand the bulk of them. Most of time I smile inwardly and say nothing.

Lately as you know if you read my New Year's thread I am working on Shroomery projects. I read everything that is posted but do not have the time for comments/rebuttals.

Cheers

Rhetoric like this just makes me laugh. It reminds me of those stupid plaques and framed placards with lame poems or "words of inspiration/motivation/whatever" on them... like: "Reach For the Stars" and there's a watercolor of a child's hand stretched out towards a sky filled with multicolored stars....

I hate it when people have crap like that displayed. It's the kind of crap parents (or grandparents) buy because they don't know their progeny well enough to get them something better.




You may laugh at it, but if you want to get anywhere on the spiritual path, certain walls need to be knocked down. The first is accepting reality. Whether or not you realize this is unimportant. It is a choice I have made, and a choice you may never desire to make. I have chosen to accept reality, and it has allowed me to make a quantum jump, of sorts.

Spiritual elitism is a sign of insecurity and/or spiritual immaturity.

I hope you know that assumption is the mother of all fuckups.

Mushrooms, medatating and just plain thinking work well for me. I think some people in here are a little too deep into other theries, beliefs and ways of thinking (imo)- nothing wrong with that, but I'd rather just stick to finding my own way while I'm living life. I used to be like most here, but now I'm just content with what I've concluded about life/reality/spirituality and all that.

I also don't read books- they seem to persuade me to take another path that I don't wanna take.

:wink:

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

One could argue that the only reason uncertainty appears to exist is because the scope of our attention is so limited in both width [physical awareness] and depth [time]. If you were able to catalog, or chronicle the absolution of now compounded into a single experience -- i believe james joyce has many of these in Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake, they're called COEX systems -- there would be no variables. No uncertainty is present when you take away choice - and if you existed in more than one instance, you would be beyond choice and variable.

The goal then, should be to see and be two places at once... actually, the more the merrier.

Awesome!

It seems from your writing that you should really like this place.

Most of us genuinely care for one another except on weekends when we drink too much and want to pick fights.

That's when I drag out the ugly stick and thump 'em hard on the head. :wink:

If I came off sounding like an elitist, then we had a misunderstanding. I do not wish to lay my beliefs on anyone, and I don't think they are any better than anyone elses. I have made no simple assumption. I have made certain choices in what I believe and read, but all are based on things that hold true consistently. I acknowledge that many of my beliefs may be wrong, as anyones. Walking the path of the spirit is not like walking any other path, its very easy to stray, everyone does.

I don't know much about you but the more I read the more I like.

You impress me Remy, and that takes some doing.
