Words Speak Louder Than Actions

It's true. Nothing you do matters... it's all about what you say.
The mind/body separation is false. Reality is an illusion caused by the ego. Once you see past this illusion you are aware that there is no difference between action and thought. Since it's more efficient to talk about hitting a homerun than actually hitting one, we might as well save ourselves the trouble of navigating through this grand illusion with our "bodies". Our minds are quicker because they're not limited by the arbitrary rules of the corporeal format. Stop what you're doing... just think that you're doing it instead.

That's what I'm saying... there IS NO difference!
All those foolish activists don't even realize they're being so inefficient 9and therefore, less effective). They'd be better off sitting at home talking about the problems of the world - because that's the only way to change anything!!
Geez!!
If only people realized....

Why did you post this, and not just think about it?

:smile:

I know what you mean though, when one realizes that their entire reality is isolated and unique, that they are the sole observer as well as creator of it - then affecting 'physical consensual reality' does not matter, as only that which affects their own perceptions (which thinking about something can equally) matters.

I think you might have intended sarcasm, but I'm not sure. :/

Okay...

You're a part of this forum and you've got more than 2500 posts right now, so you've been doing a decent job at talking/thinking about things rather than wasting your time with actions. If we keep this up, we can change the world!!

What we need to do is get people to join our forum (preferably over the internet because it's more efficient than actually looking for people and asking them to join our grand cause). Those of us with telepathic powers can be even more helpful by transmitting our thoughts DIRECTLY into other peoples' minds... we can save alot of time with this method. After a critical mass of people come together, we can all THINK the "world" to be a better "place". This will work... this is how the ancients became enlightened and transmutated into GODS!!!

I'm not sure how you knew this, but you're right... I haven't touched my computer for months... I type via telekinesis.  I'm working on telepathically interfacing with my computer, but it's going to be some time before I can achieve the focus necessary for such a task.

Not at all. I'd say I'm dead serious, but I've reached a state where I don't take myself seriously anymore.

Words and actions are both external; words, even ideas, are merely symbols of true knowledge. True knowledge must be experienced first-hand--merging motivation and justification, thought and action, thinking and being--to be completely understood.

Since actions stem from being and words from thought, I consider actions to be more powerful, that is, closer to the truth and accordingly less symbolic.

Look... you don't have to hate like that.
Most of the people on the board know I'm right - and they live this truth.

Join the REAL revolution and stop doing... it's all about the mind, man.

Well, if your imagination can reach a point of 100% accuracy in constructing perceptions, then this would be true.

Your example, of someone in jail, still holds true. If they can imagine themselves getting laid on an island, what makes this any less real _relative_ to their _observation_?

It doesn't.

And thus the jailmate gets laid :smile:

Once you've ascended, your cell will disappear. The real cell is the mind/body separation myth.... it's ALL IN YOUR MIND!! I tell you to THINK YOUR PRISON BARS AWAY! This is the ultimate high.

I've been thinking about this for the last few weeks. And here it is in typed words, wierd.

I remember reading or hearing that when manifesting/visualising to not work out every detail from beggining to end. It had to do with what your talking about.

If you worked through EVERYTHING in thought and emotion, in a way it already just happened and you've experienced it.

The probability of your then wanting to actually recreate it in the physical reality is nil and you'll be off to a new idea.

Fucken wild shit it is..........

Great post sclorch, regardless if we arn't sure if you are joking around or not.

So what if my mind is in a state of being where it coincides in a reality that doesn't even exist outside of the mind. Then it realizes it has a chance to change the external. Or spend time back in thought as the idea passes you by and watch the world around you change instead.
