A few things I have learned..
    #4237192 - 05/30/05 05:35 PM (12 years, 27 days ago)

- Love is the only ultimate truth

- I am a spiritual being having a human experience

- Reality is subjective, all realities are valid, and collectively form objective reality.

- Thought creates reality, all are in control of their destiny

- Free will is a universal law

- The purpose of life is to evolve by gaining wisdom through experience. Life is a constant series of lessons and challenges to be learned from and transcended. If you do not transcend a lesson, it will return in your life, but more pronounced, and will keep returning until you master it.

- As above, so below, as below, so above - as within so without, as without so within. Dreams reflect reality reflects dreams as the microcosm reflects the macrocosm of the infinite universe

- Serving others is the way to happiness

- I am master of my body and control my own reality and must take 100% responsibility for my actions

- The Earth is our home and we must treat it as such

- All of humanity, plants, animals, minerals, elements.. all connected. This is just in the physical world, there are other planes of existence beyond the scope of what we may perceive.

- Communication is important

- All simply is

Well that's partially my take on it anyway. I can't speak for everyone.

I don't know what you mean by all realities. I don't know you define a reality.

You experience a reality, I experience a reality, sometimes realities merge with other realities. Billions of subjective realities interacting with each other in a complex grid. Each of us on our own paths of evolution, no reality is 'wrong' or invalid.

Isn't it simpler to just call those different experiences of the same reality?

Why can't hatred be truth? If your experience is in your own free will, it should be "true" to yourself no matter what, that is if your experience really is... nothing more than thoughts making a reality, your thoughts of hatred or despise should have no more truth than love or happyness.

By the way I'm not an ass, I just dont like it when people say things that are influenced by the media...love is the only truth... stop selling out.

Media influences truth and love....?    :smirk:
I have not watched TV nor the news for a while, but back when I did, I don't remember seeing love in all of the violence....(?)
All I remember it promoting is fear....  :shrug:

I have no doubt you have learned. But the great majority of what I've just read are quotes and truisms from others!

You need to suffer more, my friend. Then you can teach from your own experience in your own words. Rejoice when you suffer because that is the only way most of us ever learn.

Go back into the crucible and make it your own.  :wink:

- Thought creates reality, all are in control of their destiny

The 9/11 victims were all thinking about dying in a fiery ball? How were they in control?

Saying "Thought creates reality" is another byproduct of mind-identification. It is a form of fragmented thinking.

Please, don't worship thought. [Unless you like being stuck in neurosis] The mind is simply a tool, and all thoughts are simply second-hand reports of what has already happened.

I have never encountered any convincing arguments to prompt me to believe that reality is subjective. Rather, the evidence points to subjective sensory input and subjective interpretations of this input based upon an individual's model of reality. Of course any interpretation is subject to an individual's predilection to extend or alter his model or to rationalize the existence of data incongruous with his model to conform to his preconceptions. I try not to confuse the scratches, tint, reflections, dirt, condensation and glare of the windshield I am staring through, nor my desires for certain vistas, with the landscape I'm trying to traverse.

They were in control of how they chose to react to the situation....

Yeah, they could scream hysterically or curl up in a fetal position and rock back and forth. When the heat became too much, they could fry like a shrimp on the barbie or jump to certain death.

Sounds like lots of reality-shaping a-going on there.

Some people did not have time to react, and did fry on impact....  Some used cell phones to call loved ones....  Some chose to panic....  Some chose to find an escape route....  Some chose to help others escape....  Some chose to jump....  Some chose to pray....  And I am sure some chose to do other things that I can't think of....

---As I said, they were in control of how they chose to react to the situation....
