meaning in life
    #900908 - 09/23/02 04:51 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I was just thinking, are we really seperate from anything or is everything just a progression from the same idea, oneness expressed in duality/relativity. is creation linear as a timeline or does it occur as a cycle? is there a limit to expansion or is that a dualistic perception, an illusion which brings an experience of reality.

are we seperate or one? does the same soul house each body or does each body hold a seperate soul? is there a soul at all, was creation just a fluke? are you just a fluke? is the human race and all the universe just a fluke and we are fooling ourselves by searching for truth in the fluke?

the answers yes(swami) or no (shroomism) are the only two answers that come to mind. shall it be chaos or paradise on earth, dualism or oneness, lie or truth? truth or lie?

we are doing that deciding everday, individually and collectively, we are currently choosing duality collectively on earth and experiencing chaos.

What i am trying to get at here is to help you realize how important you are in making the shift, assuming you wish to. there are only two polarities here on earth, love and fear, duality and oneness, chaos and paradise. which do you personally choose? which do you project out into the world? are you projecting your truth or are you allowing others to project theirs onto you and denying your truth?

bliss or ignorance?


think about this, it is probably the most important descision you will ever make.


peace>

are we seperate or one?

both

does the same soul house each body or does each body hold a seperate soul?

no soul for me thanks

is there a soul at all, was creation just a fluke?

fluke

are you just a fluke?

ultimately, yes, although I don't think of "fluke" with a negative, depressing conotation

is the human race and all the universe just a fluke and we are fooling ourselves by searching for truth in the fluke?

absolutely

the answers yes(swami) or no (shroomism) are the only two answers that come to mind. shall it be chaos or paradise on earth, dualism or oneness, lie or truth? truth or lie?

both

we are doing that deciding everday, individually and collectively, we are currently choosing duality collectively on earth and experiencing chaos.

I agree

What i am trying to get at here is to help you realize how important you are in making the shift, assuming you wish to. there are only two polarities here on earth, love and fear, duality and oneness, chaos and paradise. which do you personally choose?

Both-I guess this is the bulk of what I would like to contribute- the Buddhist distinction between conventional and ultimate truth expressed here from a previous post:


"Buddhists do not neccesarily strive to lose any and all conception of themselves as separate from everything else, but strive to know deeply that this conception does not equal reality; It does serve a pragmatic function and is useful to meet certain goals such as acquiring food and helping others to understand the Dharma- but it is a map for the territory, and we know no one thinks that the contour lines or the legend of a map are reality. In other words, Buddhist strive to know that while conventionally things and theory exist, ultimately, they do not. "



which do you project out into the world?

The assumption of duality, although I strive not to

are you projecting your truth or are you allowing others to project theirs onto you and denying your truth?

Yes, I am strongly affected by the socially prescribed way to experience reality- the assumption that duality is the real state of affairs, the "true nature of reality." I'm trying though.

Buttonion i greatly appreciate your reply, it takes alot of guts to reply to something like this as it strikes deeply at the soul. This message was sent through me by the creator, the clarity speaks for itself.

Many of the souls here on this site feel as though they are caught in between the yin and yang somewhere. try not to get upset though, it is all part of the process of rememberance. In the days to come the choice will be available with greater clarity as the changes begin to sky rocket on earth, many of you have been following the news and know what i am talking about. As with everything in life it is always your descision, know that every descision is a perfect one as nothing is outside the creator.

good luck on your journeys.........

peace>

Some of the higher consciousness posters here may wonder why i include the statements that i do that would portray my beliefs in a more fantastical sense, as they might infringe on a more unstable persons mind and cause them to look away.

The reason i do this is to provide a more distictive system to that particular poster to discern his or her truth. It is much easier to discern truth once you have destroyed the invisible barrier to it.

It is within your humanity
That you will learn to
Recognize your divinity.

We are all One.
Ours is One reality, One energy, One perception.
The mind cannot grasp this fact,
Or accept it without battle.
But the heart is yearning to know it.

There is divinity in all things,
And in order to find that divinity,
One must work with the material at hand.

To disregard the clay
Is to question the divine energy
That formed it.

When you enter into a human life,
You enter into a perceptual falsehood.
This is what the Eastern religions call illusion.
If you treat the illusion as truth,
You may become embittered, fearful, and ill.

Instead, come into life assuming the perspective
Of the creator of all life,
And see it all as a wonderous,
And valuable learning experience

Yes, even when someone you love is brutally murdered, shed not a tear, for it is mere illusion.

We already covered this. Apparently some weren't learning.
