Dear Carmela, The intelligent passionate woman that you are,and yet you have fallen prey to generalisations based on prejudices that have imprisoned your brilliant mind. Please understand that you cannot chemically categorise behaviour and mental disposition as male and female. First of all psychoso...

Hello James.N. It is wonderful to thrash these ideas out, with you. If it is any consolation to you,I am in a similar quandary as are you. I too,shudder at the idea of being a mute witness to the outrages committed on millions of hapless lives- mortal and otherwise. But one has only to look at early...

There are no absolutes in yardstick that you use to qualify any action. Rights and Wrongs, are mind constructs, that arise from the delusion, that makes you believe in absolute nature of this world. The system will correct itself... Trouble is we all want it to happen in our wee lifetime. If you wan...

'We are the star dust that feels love to the marrow of our bones, and in that feeling, we live outside of time, where there is never really anything we can call "nothing". It's all good'
.
Lovely words!

 Its like we get mesmerised by the sensations of the physical world and it isn't until we get slapped hard that we can snap out of it. Back to top  . If you get mesmerised by the 'physicality of this world'; Is it not the same physicality that makes us snap out of it, in the form of delivering a we...

Ok now you are accusing Jesus for not being christian enough :D And each time a christian bites a ear or steals marbles - there he is - carrying the burden of their sins If you substitute ' jewish officials with jewish priests ..

Oh! Quite tragic, I would agree. The loss of such a brave young leader would have shaken you and your supporters. But how is it Jesus like? Jesus never confronted anyone with violence. He never thought violence should be met with violence. Maybe I am missing out something in the narrative here. I am...

Good day ladies ! Let me clamber on to the ring while you two go to your respective corners. It is difficult to ascribe value to events that happened two millennia ago. But look at the symbol ..

Oh how wonderful would it be to delve into an animal's mind and know what is going on? But even then we will know stuff only in our terms. If you're going to build a house with wax.

I wonder if it isn't a question of how focussed consciousness is like either a floodlight covering a lot of area at low light or a spotlight with an intense but small beam of light. At a cosmic level consciousness is so diffused because it covers the whole of the universe. At an animal level it sti...
