Re: What is Enlightenment?


Hiya Maria,

I have seen this shaped artifact before at mt. shasta. A cyrstal store was selling it, except that it was made of copper and had quartz crystals inside each gripper paw... They said the purpose was to help with meditation, sort of like an energy wand....

and yes i do believe that this world is just a dream... nothing is really external at all.. it is all an internal dialouge of consciouness.. The new quantum science is actually explaining it to us now as we speak...

like Depok Chopra said so elequently;;;;....

"We are not in the world but the world is in us"...

and by the way maria, Thanks for sharing this dream with [sign in to see URL] are a good friend..

JC emoticon

If indeed the world is made of the stuff the dreams are of, then our thoughts and attention is what matters most---lets use it to counter the poisons oozing from the imprisoned collective mind and concentrate on goodness and beauty. Even if it's just me and you chatting here daily against this gorgeous sunset background.......




I think this is the key to get the world out of this jam.. everything is pure thought... if we can change our thoughts, we can change the world...

Emerging from the sphere are two eight petalled lotus flowers. One represents the phenomenal world (or in Buddhist terms Samsara), the other represents the noumenal world (or Nirvana). This is one of the fundamental dichotomies which are perceived by the unenlightened.
Arranged equally around the mouth of the lotus are 2, 4, or 8 mythical creatures which are called makaras. These are mythological half-fish, half-crocodile creatures made up of two or more animals, often representing the union of opposites, (or a harmonisation of qualities that transcend our usual experience).



maria,

Did you know that the above buddhist traditions and stories sound much like the Egyptian Book of the Dead?

Re: What is Enlightenment?


Hey JC and Maria;

I have to admit firstly that I do not am a believer of karma, as karma is a word used in other words but meaning the same and in the same context.
As JC probably already knows I am a Hermetist.
It always strikes me again the same paths we walk, calling it whatever one wants, the path is the same.
So Maria, you also may count me in as one friend who understands what you are saying.
Now with the three of us on this small board, looking at the millions that even not heard about us, there has to be a great number of peop[le out there to have the same thoughts we have.
I always try to reach ouit to find one and I always tell what is on my hart ( Yes Maria, I know it must be heart but I prefer hart as it represents more it is ny being) and if there is only two that understand me they will try too and hence we can make this world go into change by our combined thoughts.

Maria, I find what you say very interresting and deeply well thought.
In my and you and JC and ???we all have our own self, wich makes this outer world a coat we wear only in this realm or plane as I like to name it.
But we have the same thoughts.
I hope I did not make you angry with my saying I do not call myself a beleiever of Karma, but that is only a word.
We both mean the same and thát is what counts.

Hear from you two

Greetings
