Started this discussion. Last reply by valli Jan 1, 2014.
A convenient distinction of these experiences is between expansion of the self and rupture of the self. If the contexts are not clear then experience is limited *. The onus is on the experiencer and my distinction is not a comment on the…"
"Being did not precede duality. Being is simultaneous with duality
Agreed :) so we have co-incidence of existence and creativity. That which is of time and not of time. We can’t say that which is not of time is a thing,…"
"Smiles & fragrant spontaneous nodding.
Not wanting to overload things I will address just one point in two forms:
1. Being suggests the "Causal" and sometimes the "Nondual". The Causal is the pure, syntactical…"
While I was getting into this story I was being drawn deeper and it began to clash with my everyday life. And with it a growing anxiety I wouldn’t be able to do justice to it.
But when you said, it stirs the peculiarly smooth…"
"Hi Valli (& everyone),
It would almost be uncharitable for me to pick at this flow of articulation. Both because it is in strong consonance with the "art of adjacency" for which I stand and because its style is more than half poetic,…"
(This thread is a continuation from this post. Part -1, I have yet to post, but this story works sideways as well I think :)Duality* is perhaps the greatest move the universe ever made. Genius written all over genealogy. Not enough appreciation, all the talk of samsara and dukkha and redemption. Like its epic, spectacular reach for infinity, it finds…See More
"Transitory dynamic incidental dependency
LP maybe it’s just this itch for a foursome. A change from the chirpy threesomes!
LP - Clearly our notion of reality needs some kind of ubiquitous subjectivity-potential. And it must be entangled…"
"Layman, this was a lot of work, to string the fray. I didn’t think, but I’m in deep waters now :) I’ll link this to this thread to stay relevant as I can to this discussion and to give some width to this post.
The lack of the…"
How about, When the universe is sufficiently organized and complex it gives rise to sentience rather than consciousness
Still conversational, but potentially a position that integrates different world spaces and overcomes the…"
Tradition calls :)
And then some day
Who did we discover ?
We found the world
as it should be
me according to you
and you according to me
from a place of mystery
I could interrupt
the unknown, or
Hey people, it’s been a while. So stop me anywhere down the line….
The question is whether or not I am more of an authority on my inner states than someone else.
There is the ambiguity to my inner states. to…"
"Ok, so the timing is irresistible
And I am not physical. Also, I am not not physical
Long ago there was

So the lamest idea ever

A one trick pony, separation

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?
This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
