What is...............
    #3124375 - 09/12/04 01:35 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

it that we all share in common right now related to what we are looking for out of spirituality, science, religion, phiolosophy etc?

It must be something that ALL of us can agree too.

I'm just looking for answers to life, the Universe, why I am here, etc. 

I don't have the answers, even though I write as if I do.  I am probably less sure than anyone here about life, etc.  I'm so fucking clueless at times.

And I don't mind being in disagreement with anyone although yes, it's nice when people agree with ME!  :grin:

the self!
the understanding of our wishes and needs... the search to find balance with the world!

strives to be in balance with it's surroundings?
it's a kind of desire in away... ?
are you talking personal? i can understand you se it that way. but.. still, why try to find a answer? when there are no question her
why try to become somthing you already are?
The act of granting, is only copying not evolving :wink:

did i say i'm looking for an answer?
what i AM is not in balance as of yet... i don't think he majorety of the human beings are in balance... it's not a matter of answer or path or whatever!

what we have in common is the understanding that WE are IT... we ARE the PATH... we ARE god (to each his own god... that is not to say that we are omnipotent though!) but we don't practice it ALL the time we don't act upon it with every breath we take!

the current evolution is in the mind... maybe even noticibly in the brain? and the mind is US the self rather then the ego...

And, I'm just here to talk about things.  I was leaving another forum where I was in all kinds of fights with people.  My friend told me about this place.  She was right.  She said it was interesting, and that a lot of people were really smart.  Yep.

I don't know why everyone has to share common reasons for being here.  I never joined here because I thought "Here are a bunch of people just like me!"  hehe.  I am a  mom, an attorney, a Christian, and I'm old.  :grin:  Oh!  And most importantly, I don't use drugs at all!  I would have to say most of the people are NOT like me, but that is what makes the place more interesting. 

If everyone thought like I did, I probably wouldn't come here.  I'm glad we're all different and have different views of life and spirituality.

Well,

I'll make that comment now that this thread served it's purpose of demonstrating that we are not all after the same ultimate goal and on different paths of getting there.

I think we are already there and are just in the process of realising that. That makes my goal different from most others.

Frog, I love and appreciate the differences on this board as well. It's what keeps the reading here so stimulating.

You must know from the thread this post was inspired by that there are people here who think that any of us who realise our differences is said to be an elitist, as if by noting our differences we are attempting to say we are some how more special.

based on the belief of the person who thinks stating your difference makes you an elitist then everyone who posted here is an elitist. basically, thats the same as saying that any time someone posts a difference here they are setting themselves as elite over the rest who disagree.

When you come out and say, "the only reason why people make themselves different is to make themselves feel 'special" and then follow it by saying "that is elitist thinking" it sounds like it makes sense.

But it doesn't or we are all elitists rendering us no more or less then another. No matter how you cut it up, we are equal and always will be in spirit.

If anyone brings that stuff up again, all they are really saying is that, "i feel less then the equality of myself to others."

Nothing is wrong with any of it as we are here dealing with an illusive imbalance of spiritual power to better understand our spiritual power. Sometimes, it serves to be reminded that it is just an illusion and not to get ones panties into a bunch.

"You must know from the thread this post was inspired by that there are people here who think that any of us who realise our differences is said to be an elitist, as if by noting our differences we are attempting to say we are some how more special."

Huh.  I don't think I read the thread where this discussion was had.  But my comment would be:  "That's crazy!"  :grin:

We are each of us different.  Not better, not worse, just different.  At different places in life, with different beliefs.  And maybe some of us are further ahead in some areas, and others are futher ahead in others.  And we are here to help each other, regardless of where we are or what we believe. 

So any of you who display this elitist attitude, or think it's bad to say you're different, stop it!  :grin:

I come here looking for killer thought-provoking questions.

Good one plexus!

I was about to say that , yeah, I think we could agree that there is a point and then that is as far as it goes. The point is different for everyone. Appearantly, some people think that point , whatever it is, will bring us all to the same place. I don't because I can't see a reason for it.

Then I thought of swami. It seems his overall presense here is to tell us that there is no point to all of this. Unless he reads this and corrects me, then the answer is no, we can't all agree there is even a point to it.

I was thinking about why I have issues with the idea of being on a path. Don't you ever feel like the idea implies that there is something you have to be doing, that there are right and wrong choices to make, that you are to be going someplace and yet have no idea where it is and just when you think you do, it all changes?

Anyone else on this?

Oh, and someone asked me if I could stop if I wanted to. I've tried, and no. Sooner or later, something profoundly overwhelming sucks me back in again. I'm going to go think on that because it bugs me.

I think the point to a spiritual path could be to learn the careful balancing act between THOUGHT and ACTION, and to learn which thoughts and actions will suit you and your fellow humans best
