Re: Still looking...

We are not looking for meaning here. To philosophize get's us nowhere. We are looking to 'wake up'. That is to recognize what is actual. I couldn't agree more. But you did bring up the tree in the forest and that's pretty philosophical 😉 In truth I was beginning to wonder about the direction here h...

Re: Still looking...

(bloody train wifi... I was cutoff🤣) is something I'm profoundly doubtful can be - what's the word? - seen thru or overcome. So, What are the ramifications of realizing that you create your own world - well, it depends in which sense you mean it: the psychological sense or the more literal sense. Pe...

Re: Still looking...

Hi Vince I can't see an obvious way to delete the "Kalama2305" account so I shall just try and make sure I login as Locutus each time. Again, my apologies for the confusion. What are the ramifications of realizing that you create your own world? Before I answer more directly.... That is well put. I ...

Re: Still looking...

but do you see the ramifications of it? I see consequences. But, by your own logic ("Everybody's perception is unique. Everybody's interpretation is unique.") we may or may not agree on what these might be. The fact - and I do view it as a fact - that we don't see the world 'as it is' is not at all...

Re: Still looking...

If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody there, does it make a sound? Well I was not expecting that old chestnut! My answer is: how would I know? I don’t mean that in the colloquial sense, as in “why are you asking me?” I mean it literally, no one could know because… no one is there. I gue...

Hi. And thanks in advance for your time and patience.

Re: Still looking...

Flores,

I’d be open to that and I can certainly understand if you can’t give it the attention you’d like… my background is Buddhist if that’s relevant having spent a long time engaged with Triratna if you’ve heard of that outfit…

Re: Still looking...

Discussed this sort of thing only this weekend as I'm staying with a couple of old friends who are well versed i...

Re: Still looking...

So the outside noise is… a clock ticking (I’m up North in my mothers living room). Inside I imagined a couple of noises: a big gong being sounded and (where do these things come from 🤣) Bugs Bunny saying:”that’s all folks”. My experience was that the internals looks little more effort to realise the...

Re: Still looking...

Slight caveat enters my mind. My hearing is fine and I'm not neurologically impaired in any way. If I was though, in certain ways, I bet I would be much more aware of the effort - and therefore the effort by a 'me' - of putting together what I hear with say, a story about what I was hearing to come...

Re: Still looking...

Floris, Your position, your experience is clearer after that post. It might be worth my mentioning my own experience though less in terms of what I'm experiencing right now as what my historical experience is. That way we might proceed quicker (not that I'm in a rush!) as there might be less mutual ...
