Does that tell you anything?



toombaru :roll: :roll:
I 'believe' that not everyone has been provided with the same amount of religion; some have more and some others have less: in themselves; those who have less or none of it, look outside for an outside religion...


Kali


Mind is so inclined to fall into religiosity that it finds it difficult to believe that other minds have no belief what so ever in a creator God.

(There could only be a God if He is a creator God.)

Some say that science is a religion.

They would be wrong.




toombaru
what is most amusing... is the apparent belief that 'I as toombaru' hold in the existence of 'other minds'... as 'really separate things with separate awareness and beliefs'... and not just concepts in this awareness...

also... the persistent assumption of 'others' on this forum holding a belief in a 'separate creator god'...

would all 'others' on this forum who hold such a belief please put up your hand... :D

Love
toomby... it seems there are no takers...

but what about those 'others' who believe... "there are people (other than themselves) who believe in such a 'separate creator god' "...

I know toombaru… why don’t we put this assumption to the test… nothing like a good empirical (scientific) test to confirm the truth... don't you think...

perhaps any one who believes in the aforementioned would like to add a 'smiley face' in reply to this post...

while it may seem a little confronting... admitting to a belief in 'others' on an 'advaita forum'...

no need to be embarrased... I am the only one here... free to hold any apparent belief I like... :D

though I have to say... the only 'separate creator god' that I know of... is the one conceived... along with all 'others'... :roll:

but just so ‘we’ can put toombaru's fears to rest... and show ‘me’ up as the fool I am… if there really are 'others' on this forum who hold the belief in 'others holding a belief in a separate creator god'... then speak now... or forever hold your peace...

of course... the only thing that this test does is make 'me' a fool... :shock:

but 'I' can live with that... 8)

They belong to toombaru.

You have to send three dollars to him and he will let you use the ones that you can see on the screen.

For an additional two dollars......he will show you how to open up a bunch of others.

Ok.

All you do is make sure that the little box just below this big box titled "Disable Smiles in this post" is not checked.

.....and then find the face you want and click on it......and it will jump right below what you have written.


Watch me:

There .........see that.




Now.................You owe me big time.

I know


i will be happy


only when I get the


dollars .


Perceived happiness ........
Best way to postpone present .


But happiness always

sounds better

in future .


For the present

tranquil

desire free


calm sadness

holds the key


to perfection in stillness .


Like

a merging of


now

in the eternity .......

We believe that words hold more meaning than those little faces.

It would shock us into nausea if we comprehended how little information that concepts actually contain.

Good night Love

"I and the father are one"

"The Father is in me and i am in the father"

"the father is greater than me.
"

i subscribed to them all.
from functional duality to ontological nonduality
and everything in between.

depending on my mood.
