Good day ,

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.



:shock:


Good night Love

ahh dear toombaru... raising the spectre of 'we' again... :D

as for 'words'... they hold no meaning at all...

what is the meaning of: 'fan'... or 'box'...

as for 'conception'... no knowing 'what' it is...

but there is not any 'thing'... apart from the conception of it...

any 'thing' seen or felt or tasted or smelled or heard... is just the sensations experienced... and what it is these sensations are apparently believed to be...

without the 'idea' giving meaning... there is no 'thing' at all to see or feel or taste or smell or hear... just these sensations rising and falling...

amazing really... :D

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)

Love
it seems there are no takers on this one either... seems there is no one on this forum who believes...

a) in a 'separate creator god'... or...

b) in any 'others who believe in a separate creator god'...

but then again... not even 'toombaru' holds the latter belief... 'he' is simply an expression of that belief...

and the only 'place' that belief is known... is in this knowing...

and the only 'place' that belief is recognised... is in this awareness... that is now arware of these words... there is no 'other'...

time for dinner... :D
