  1. Nothing at all negative about depression. It simply means you are looking for the answers within instead of externally, and asking us for answers as a reflection of your own inner knowing. Any state of being you choose to experience will never be extraneous. You can always get something out of it.
  2. Then you will buy into a negative belief. Not to say that all these individuals are doing what excites them the most in life, but everyone at all times will move towards what they perceive to be the most pleasurable and move away from what they perceive to be the most painful. In this sense, they know exactly what they are doing. In another sense, they have no idea what they are doing. So if one holds on to a negative belief where they are suffering, it's because they must think they are getting something out of it.
  3. If an individual uses anything as a crutch to run from their pain, then it might be interesting for the person to look into that. An addiction is a judgement one can place upon themselves. If it can be realized there is a habit. It is no longer a habit. Because now it is outside looking within. Continuing the ritual would now be considered a choice one is willfully acting on. Believe it or not, but nothing external can create joy. That state of being can actually be obtained without the assistance of the plant. Essentially, plants are a permission slip to be more of yourself.
  4. You have to find out whether it is college you don't prefer or the negative feelings you create while in college.
  5. This is the first Warcraft expansion pack that didn't lure me into it's slimy gross tentacles of... FUN! How is your character progression doing Touch A.C.?
  6. Finally.
  7. There are many that are directing themselves to a harmonious reality. None of which are known because it would first require the belief that what these individuals are saying and doing is real. If we are cynical we will point to what we perceive as the past and say that it is proof that the universe will always be a competition. In my view, the universe is communication. Only recently have we gotten to a point where the universe has been able to adequately translate a more expanded perspective to us. This will become a prevalent question.
  8. My video on Loving Your Enemy Kind of a short video. Relevant here, I would say. What is happening and has happened for innumerable aeons on this planet is the idea of judgement and conditions upon others perspectives and free will. This extends to all perspectives mind you! Yes, even that one you are in opposition to right now. So an individual will either continue the cycle or jump out of it. Choice is with themselves and themselves alone. This is simply my perspective, feel free to view from it or not.
  9. I'm about halfway through this book. I've attempted to read it many times and I also found myself adrift. At the beginning, Thomas Clearly labels most Zen establishments as "cults" for fetishizing meditation and ritual. To me, that definition of "cult" means just about anything can be considered a cult. Who knows? Maybe everything is a cult! Unless you have truly realized enlightenment. Certainly, Foyan mentions many people distorting the words of Zen or Buddhism by creating for themselves concepts of which they believe to be real insights but, can't respond when questioned past the foundations of their beliefs. Since they latch onto the beliefs and get stuck in the mud without realizing it, they sit in meditation uselessly and never get anywhere. The authentic Zen that Clearly talks about, appears to not be a philosophy nor does it appear be a religion. Actually, you can't say what it "is" for once you do then you have a concept in your mind and are back to the ol' cycle of birth and death. But, I know when I read this text it has an effect. Foyan says somewhere in the book that there was once an ancient master who by just talking would still everyone's mind, because he wouldn't allow people any concept to seep into the consciousness.
  10. It all stems from judgement of what others should be. You can only accept your own state of being. And so, with that in mind. Why would you seemingly allow others to create pain in your body? Anger does nothing but make you feel pain and create a physiological chemical imbalance in your brain that clouds your presence of mind. The only real use of anger is to let you know that you are choosing a state of being that is really bizarre! (assuming you enjoy the ecstasy of life), and so never judge any anger that you might unconsciously create for yourself in the moment. However, if you still have it for any longer than 10 seconds or so then realize you are making that choice consciously.
  11. It's like a puzzle piece. I am a small little puzzle piece. When I connect with every other piece it begins to form a big and coherent picture. Without me that puzzle could not be formed and without everyone else I would not be able to fit into the puzzle picture.
  12. My guests are all delaying their conversations with me (and one where I don't wake up early enough to talk to them since they live in japan). This just means there will be others who seek the undying intrigue in the days to come, for there is a purpose that needs to be fulfilled here. A boundless purpose yet unborn in the womb of time.............!!
  13. Aura Mystica podcast thread is DEAD Long live the Aura Mystica podcast!!
  14. Well, as a reflection of yourself, I can tell you that the One cannot be self-aware of itself for it is the isness that is which is homogenous. It has nothing to compare itself to. Therefore there is no other ONE of which it would feel the idea of loneliness for, as it has never felt the idea of company to begin with. The sensation of isolation and intense dark painful loneliness (I know that feel ) comes from the idea of our extreme apparent separation with All that is. So to get through it, just connect with yourself which is part and parcel of the All. That is, you know, where all this boundless unconditional Love comes from.
  15. I know exactly what you are talking about. I did get through that. The idea is that I had to be completely transparent myself. I found that I was also trolling many people and was taking as much as I could get for myself. I see myself as The All. Meaning everything that is. Everyone is a reflection of my own inner experience. So all I had to do is put trust in myself and the universe takes care of the rest.
