I dont think he was wrong for it or anything, i just dont think people need new belief systems, saying that some people may benefit & even be at the stage of having to adpot a new belief system in order to find peace, so who am i to critisize!

Don't you think what you post here is a belief system? Who needs it then? You seem to think we do or you would not post it.

I dont feel what i post is a belief system, it may be taken to be a belief system as maybe i repeat myself? But i have no control over how others perceive my words.

I also dont really feel other people need it, i really dont have much interpretation about what i do i just do it, something compells me to share, i dont feel i need to justify myself further then that to be honest? Why justify anything? Just live?

Why does it have to be so complicated?

I speak you speak, we speak! :shrug:


One man could help another off the floor only be told by the man on the floor he doesnt want any help, then an onlooker asks why did you even try to help?

Why not?

I enjoy the play of this forum & feel as though people challenge what you say which is  good to widen the ability to communicate with a wider audience & for the few that PM me thanking me for my posts i find its somehow worth it?

I actually bought a copy of it a long while back & enjoyed it, i wasn't personally feeling the "12 step program to enlightenment" where he was basically saying "memorize this & you'll be free" which i dont agree with at all, but if theres one thing i walked away with as a very powerful reminder was its suggestion of having preferences over attachments :thumbup:





I personally found it a little offsetting as well, but it was designed that way as a model for those who would not have been so capable at the time of realizing the concepts presented and effectively begin utilizing them without some sort of regimen to follow. It is a really great book though. :thumbup:

It's complicated because some folk aren't honest with themselves or others. This may be a problem with maturity and awareness. :shrug:

I dont feel what i post is a belief system,

Really then what is it and how does it differ from beliefs?

Okay you could say that i believe that asking 'who/what am i?' is the most important question, so maybe thats my belief system?

Or you could say that my belief system is that seeing reality without adding concepts, is really seeing reality. But even to look at that, beliefs & concepts are the same thing.

So really its a beliefless belief system :wink:
