On Enlightenment..

"A thousand years is but an instant. There’s nothing new, nothing different. The same pattern over and over. The same clouds, the same music, the same insight I felt an hour or an eternity ago. There’s nothing here for me now, nothing at all. Now I remember. This happened to me before. This is why I left. You have begun to find your answers. Although it will seem difficult, the rewards will be great. Exercise your human mind as fully as possible, knowing it is only an exercise. Build beautiful artifacts, solve problems, explore the secrets of the physical universe, savor the input from all the senses, feel the joy and sorrow, the laughter, the empathy, compassion and tote the emotional memory in your travel bag. I remember where I came from and how I became a human, why I hung around, and now my final departure is scheduled. This way out. Escaping velocity. Not just eternity, but infinity." - Waking Life

And you are saying this is all true? Or just that you like it?

:cool: It helps if you say something about quotes so we can have a discussion around why you posted it.

Ya, I like this little speech a lot too. I'm pretty sure it's borrowed from Robert Monroe's book "The Ultimate Journey" because I was reading it around the same time I saw Waking Life and I noticed an almost exactly-the-same quote in his book. In the end of the book his spirit apparently meets the Godhead and he is not allowed to be absorbed into it because he has "not brought gifts".

words don't wrap enlightenment
- summaries fail
smaller groups of words are best
for helping point out
valuable directions on the path.

how very Taoist of you to say that..
:grin:

I agree.
I just found a link to the Waking Life transcript, and figured I'd pass along something that I really enjoyed.

here's the link, by the way
