The post for random insights.
    #3880797 - 03/07/05 01:24 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Title is self-explanatory...this is the post for those insights you get and want to share, but that aren't worth starting a topic over. It's a filter to catch those golden ideas before they drift back into metaphysical limbo. I'll start! :grin:

magick is a scam for those physically rooted...ultimately magick is manipulation only of perception...the true sage knows that reality exists to the extent that it is perceived...is your perception contingent on the perceived, or on yourself?...cannot all things be traced back to internal arising? in everything you see, do you not see yourself? in everything you experience, do you not experience yourself? do you not have full control over yourself, over what you experience?

The subjective truth, is it absoute or open to subjectivity?

To know beyond a doubt... is it to know anything at all? To think implies uncertainty... to know implies definiteness, a sense of absolution. Can it be said that we ever actually know beyond subjective absolution anything without a doubt? Or are we just tangled in subjective truths meaningful to us to the degree they are representative of that which contains a form of truth giving our truth subjective absolution to others, and absolution to us... if that's the case, and we change that belief will that make our new choice of belief any more absolute?

If god is everything... why does he need us to worship him... shouldn't our belief that we are aware that we should worship him be enough? Or does god get an ego boost from having those worship him and knowing those that don't be cast thusly into the depths of hell?

Are truths obtained from semantics able to be reconciled more often then not? Or are linguistical concepts only applicable to the degree we use them in terms of the static concept?

Is insanity but a mechanism of belief or is it a state? How is it that we best come to the conclusion of what degree someone is of relative sanity? Should we come up with a system on evaluation in respects to quantifying behavioral aspects, as well as foundation of concepts and beliefs and their root? E.G. Would you be happy being 54 points sane? Or is it just a characteristic denoted in terms of what is relative to one who believes that they are sane? Are those that think themselves sane truly the the ones that are insane? Or are they the ones that try to hard to be sane? Or is this just insane by questioning the concept of how we achieve a state of sanity? Which further begs the question of why we should attempt to achieve a state that is thusly lacking a tangible form... so, should we all choose to be outsane then?

And, my hidden truth: If the answer is too complicated, open-ended, you don't have the time to respond, contains truths in both implications, or for whatever reason you don't choose to... it is always "YES".

The majority of the time I spend discussing and debating spirituality and philosophy in this forum serves no purpose other than my personal enjoyment.

Life and existence are too big too talk about.

Sometimes i feel like saying so much stuff to all of you, but  i don't know how.

I just want to make sure everyone is feeling what i'm feeling, i don't want anyone to miss out on anything.

/end random insight :wink:

hehe, ya, but sometimes you feel like sharing the greatness and immensity of life, but you don't know how ya know?

you just feel like if everyone could become ONE and experience that SAME feeling, only THEN would bliss be experienced. cuz if you're feeling this kinda stuff on your own, its almost useless.

intuition can't exist for feeling and logic are always together.


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

Are you feeling what I think you're feeling or are you just happy to see me?
