Instinct over mind.
June 26, 2017 9:42 am
In Shopenhauer's example if the stranger dived into the water instinctively 'without thought' then I would say Shopenhauer perhaps should have said that the experience was 'a heroic act of oneness' because surely aren't thought and the mind the exact same thing?.....If that is correct then you could say that G-d dived into the water because what are we without our Ego minds but empty shells where 'nothing' is home. But what the hell do I know because knowledge comes from thought?

In the future oneness will be king and super egos like Donny Chump wont get any where near the white house.

Now that, is a very good question.
Bedtime Story For Gilad

how on earth can one who claims that there is no self have delusions of grandeur?

'nobody knows this god thing'... 'religious arrogance'......just wait and see how the future proves you completely and utterly wrong. what about all the people who claim to have lived past lives....my parents gardener told me once that he had past life recollections of trench warfare.. how can a child rapist/murderer or jewish bankster etc escape punishment but for reincarnation and the law of nature that is karma?.....how can a poor little innocent English girl called madeline be abducted whilst on holiday in Portugal but for past life crimes in the mirror that is life? ...the ancients learnt all this from the divine and can be learnt again now once the ancient secret is revealed. my comment about the tourist in Tibet was merely a comment on how easy it is to not believe the truth of the past......how many of todays 60 odd million british people even know about francis younghusbands bloody mission in Tibet?

The truth of the matter, is that the 'tribal ancients' of the old testament times didn't invent a G-d, 'they found a way' to actually connect with G-d that even now 4000 years or so on the vast sleeple masses are totally clueless about. It says in the bible that Abraham sent his sons east bearing gifts and this was most certainly to India and if they hadn't gone then Hinduism as the birth of religion wouldn't have occurred because Hinduism was born out of what the ancient Indians learnt from Abrahams sons and this is why the word Brahmin comes from A(brahm). As this Jewish saga nears completion the vast sleeple masses shall finally awaken and learn how to connect with G-d just like the ancients did.

when one knows they are right then what other option does one have than to tell the other that they are wrong in trying to change or suspend their belief on the matter?. when one has very little knowledge about a subject matter such as 'spirituality' then surely it is best to keep an open mind and not tell the other who is claiming much knowledge that they are wrong .... the only one lacking humility in this scenario is the one who knows that they lack knowledge on the subject matter. lets just wait and see in the future if it becomes generally far more plausible than is currently believed that ancient Israelite tribes in Egypt or back across the red sea where they originated were the catalyst to spirituality and religion due to them connecting with nature and god as I very firmly believe they were doing. not all knowledge is available on the internet and that is a fact.

Ancient cultures throughout the world were definitely far more connected to spirit than todays material cultures with their obsessions with (un)smart phones and moronic celebrity selfies etc...They had far more time to explore nature properly(it was all they had) and were far far more connected to it and were able to learn from it how to directly connect with G-d and that is a matter of fact that todays sleeple, non spiritual masses are totally clueless about. Hinduism unlike Buddhism wasn't the teaching of an awakened Avatar and arose bit by bit after the Vedantic period and more than a thousand years after it is said in the bible that Abraham sent his sons east bearing gifts and a thousand years is plenty of time for the truth about spirit that the ancient Rishis((and Mayan high priests for that matter) definitely knew about to become lost and that helps explain the 'eight arm mythology' of Hinduism but the reason the elephant became a Hindhu G-d is deeply meaningful and that reason is linked to why cows became sacred in India and remain so today....We don't see such mythology in Buddhism because it was the teaching of one awakened master who for an 'absolute certainty' about 2500 years ago was able to directly connect with the divine. If the bible isn't a reliable source of facts then why do you state in one of your pieces that Jesus was an Athenian?. How can you say Buddhism has given ZERO aid to the world?..he was a masterful teacher of goodness and again if we study 'exactly' what he taught we can very easily see how 'ultimate truth can get lost over time'....just one example is that he taught that' there is no self' and yet after his death they made so very many statues of him throughout south and south east asia..so pathetically ironic!..its basically as ridiculous as a smart phone celebrity selfie that they just cant wait to inflate their own sense of self when they post the image on facebook for all their friends to view......Lets all pay homage to the selfless Buddha and worship the statue of himself...sleeple!. I completely understand how difficult it is for one to comprehend the unknown.

'not a single piece of evidence/......it is in fact evidence when it says in the bible that Abraham sent his sons east bearing gifts and that the ancient Indians would later call the highest thing in Hinduism (A)brahma... yeah right it was all to do with trade that they would call brahma after some trader or whatever from a far away land. plenty more evidence that what I claim is true but if you cant open your mind to this first piece of evidence then why should I bother?

If G-d had provided us an utterly perfect dream world that would include an everlasting sun and no thunder and lightning etc then why would we ever wish to strive for nirvana/permanent cessation of being and end the duality finally to become G-d/nothingness forever?. Surely we wouldn't desire to cease reincarnating if all was utterly perfect in a utopian dream world and that is why everything is pretty much just fine as it already is and just because the sleeple masses don't know how to attain nirvana at the present it doesn't mean in the future that they wont. The whole point of 'the illusion of life' is for us to learn how to become G-d/nothingness without the duality and thus cease reincarnating back into this dream world.

just as with jews throughout the world today not every Israelite back then would have been so self serving and greedy and so therefore a positive spiritual element could very easily have existed alongside the negative and self serving Erev Rav that supposedly came about after the golden calf episode. its no coincidence that prophets like Amos and Moses were animal herders from bible times(wasn't Abraham also a herder?) just like Krishna was in India and is linked to why cows became sacred in India as I mentioned....I really cant see a cow herder dominating anything but their cows can you?.

also Abrahams wife was sara and brahmas consort was saravita. its clear to me that if you believe the bible story that what Abrahams sons brought to india in the form of gifts or knowledge led to the birth over a thousand years later of the birth of religion in Hinduism and I maintain that spirituality came about from the Israelites experiments in nature in the old testament times..

'reincarnation has never happened'......how do you know this?...how would you know?.....what a ridiculous comment......its like a british tourist visiting Tibet and a local telling them that last early in the last entury Britain invaded Tibet and the tourist responding....'it never happened'. so much the sleeple have to learn....and unlearn. you may have to delete some of your own comments in the future T--i.

I just noticed this reply after scrolling down. Just because science does not have any hard evidence that reincarnation is possible it certainly does not mean that there are awakened beings alive today who know that it is very very likely attainable. your caveman comment regarding reincarnation is pure theory on your part. its pointless me debating 'spirit' with someone who is so lacking in understanding of what spirit really is. sorry if I offended you by saying ancient hebrew tribes didn't invent a G-d but they connected with G-d but I was merely commenting on truth. your assumption that I type 'G-d' has anything to do with Judaism or whatever is quite ridiculous...I do it because to me by not spelling 'its' name properly(yes T--i G-d is an it and not a he)it points out the nothingness of all that there is.
