A Senyassi (Swami, Renunciate)

was on a train, and he had his orange bag with his few posessions, and a man was sitting next to him with his bag...

The man said to him, you wear orange but you have a bag just like me,I dont see any difference between us.

the Senyassin took his bag and pushed it out the window

the guy said why did you do that???

he said with a smile, That is the difference between me and you... i'm not attached to that

true.. but.. i mean.

just cuz something cant exist without something else doesnt mean theyre the same thing. they arent, i swear to god light and dark are TWO DIFFERENT THINGS.

its really pretty obvious..




Haha.. true, but. Nah, no buts, mister. hehe

Two things not being able to exist together doesn't mean they are the same thing, but from a view from outside the schism, so to speak, they are One, just as everything is One.

Just as Seuss said, it is US that make the distinction of the difference.. it is up to us what we want to believe... people can debate and debate, people can tell you one thing is true, one isn't, the majority of people can tell you what is and isn't true, people can die for what they believe is true, but the fact of the matter is, it is up to YOU and what YOU want to believe.

People go off, thinking that there IS proof that something can't be true, fine, that is up to you. IT IS ALL UP TO YOU. People can cut me down now, for so openly saying this without tieing it down in reason, but our mind decides WHAT IS REAL AND WHAT ISN'T. They can tell you that it isn't like that, that your mind believing something is real doesn't make it real, because others "KNOW" it isn't real.. but it IS UP TO YOU TO DECIDE WHAT IS REAL AND WHAT ISN'T. We all have a purpose here to find, and we will find what we are suspossed to find. It is up to you..
Peace.
Peace.

the Senyassin took his bag and pushed it out the window

The Senyassin was a drug smuggler and the other guy on the train was a narcotics officer...

A true display of ego. What a waste... He could have at least gave his cloths to someone who really needed them.

Even if the bag contained nothing.... He still wasted a good bag. He could have givin it to someone who really needed a bag.

I bet it was full of money. Lots and lots of money.

He did. Most ghettos are situated upon the side of train tracks, i'm sure the parcel made it to the person who was supposed to receive it.

I hear your an older fellow... I find it sad that you spend all day long picking at peoples threads on the shroomery bullatin boards

i hope you start reading more spiritual books and seeking peace of mind

As for the topic of this post:

Life is the guru

In life, you have experiences. Try to learn from them.

In life you meet people. Try to learn from them.

The guru is everywhere

I've met people who claimed to be gurus that were just con artists. I still managed to learn from them. I've learned things from the garbage man and the guy that makes my coffee. I've learned from twisted psychedelic experiences and boring, mundane tasks.

The teacher is always present. the student must only open his eyes

Most all of your replies are personal. You espouse love even as you attack angrily while contributing little.

Your quaint and borrowed train fable says nothing of your experience. Why not tell us all how to detect an authentic realized soul?

okay now that you've tried to find negative things in everything i've ever said


will you try to find some positive ones


much love


ps. i didnt 'attack angrily' I was asking why you were doing that... a cuss word doesnt mean i'm angry...

i dont like flinging poop when there are roses around to be smelled

to detect an authentic realized soul, he will reveal himself to you

and you wont find one if your not looking


let us not so much seek to be understood as to understand.

Is this an example of doublespeak?

Maybe I should start a thread on doublespeak...

My questions when trying to understand are "talking shit"? OK, that is not a belittling or negative comment, now is it?

How is this, "Every word you say is a pearl and I agree whole-heartedly." Of course this IS a discussion and debate board where ideas are put to the test.

Koombayah, oh koombayah!

I didnt realize that this was a debate forum

I thought a spiritual forum would be people communing to exchange positive vibes


It would seem to be a rare thing to hear you agree with me on anything, since you disregard my positive intentions to find something flawed in my words


if every piece of critisism is negative, how do you expect me to understand your point of view

and yeah its not the best way I could have put it, I appologize

it would be nice to exchange some mutual respect for a change...

My impression is that this forum is both of the things you mentioned.

"Philosophy" literally means love of knowledge. And the limits of knowledge are widened by analysis and criticism. How can that be non-constructive?

I suggest in all friendliness that you just go with the flow here in S&P and keep sharing and learning without getting hung up on any comments that you didn't expect.
