Re: Happeness

Happiness is another word for 'what happens'. Unhappiness is another word for 'what should happen'. This is my experience also. Happiness now: happeness, no double you; happiness is in what happens without a double (or divided) you. I get so jazzed at this noticing. Nice find dilaram. Speaking of n...

True.

However one can use inquiry to question concepts so as to discover who one is not. Then only love/Self/consciousness remains.

Makara, The square root of one percent of Australia is 462. Just your Buddhist population alone takes care of that. Although that doesn't mean they are holding that state constantly. David Lynch's next movie is called The Square Root Of One Percent. Check out this cool website: http://www.davidleffl...

Makara, I'm very sad that folks like you have *given up* the *good* fight. I too, am *finished* with that, however, I still am actively *engaged*. It takes a billion buddhas contemplating their navel to raise the vibration, and a billion buddhas being actively engaged in the world. We are given our...

Re: Being Alone

Being alone is often easier than not being alone. But often the question arises here "Is this a form of escapism?" Yes, and sometimes being with others is escapism too. It is easy to be unaffected if one rarely interacts. Yet is that interaction necessary to discover where reactivity lies hiding? F...

If it doesn't stand up to inquiry and my own inner wisdom, I say it's bunk. Yes ... ok But the last paragraph is not quite clear .. can you clarify? Do you find the Jesus message bunk? Does the message stand up to inner inquiry? Oh the joys of being 'done over' by catholicism in one's young and ten...

I also have memories of the same kind of after school religion. I don't know if Jesus was real and I don't really care (kind of like Bill Maher's comment of being an apatheist! hehe), nor do I care if the Buddha was a real man.
