  2. Re: Sublime and/or Spiritual Experiences of the Natural World..

    Hi Ken,

    You have an amazing talent for writing. What a sublime description of awakening you shared of your encounter with the Himalayan Dhole.

    Hi Rich,

    Lol, consciousness without the Self is metaphorically a cloud without the sky, or a wave without the ocean.

    You are still intellectually confusing the Absolute (Self/Pure Awareness)...

    Both the Preface and the Editor's Notes are also helpful for those who perceive apparent inconsistencies or "elasticity" in relation to terms used by Nisargadatta ie I amness, being, self/Self,...

    It was a concession to Rich, but perhaps breaking the language was the idea in the expression, kind of like a koan breaks the spell of the mind.

    I do not make these claims.
    I believe as long as you have a body you have an ego.:decision:[/QUOTE]

    Quite so, you don't make these claims Rich, Emex did ;). Or Perhaps Emexe's posts #357, #358...

    Hi Rich,

    Actually it is more about letting go of the conceptual “I” which identifies with the phenomena of thoughts and concepts. It is this I which causes the experience of separation, the “we”...

    Hi Rich,

    I don't agree that we are God, at least not the God that is referred to in ACIM. But we are one with God

    How and when did you arrive at the conclusion that you are one with God?

    Hi John,

    It depends on the context in which the word concentration is used. For beginners, or those who have difficulty with a wandering mind, initially it is suggested that they "concentrate" or...

    The cynics, and there are always cynics lol, may have observed an apparent hypocrisy in the last post where it was suggested that EmEx takes the stance that his ego is real due to the use of the term...
  17. Sticky: Re: Enlightenment - A direct, succinct account of what occurs...

    Hi Emex,

    With respect, you take the stance that your ego is real.
