When a man looks into the dark depth of himself, he glimpse, for a second, the reality of the light dwelling camouflaged as darkness. The darkness which is the essence of all things of matter, yet is the light center of which is "the way, the truth, and the life" of man's being. And the deeper man d...

Potential of Righteousness

Dreams are fulfilled in individual lives when one sat a goal, start walking towards it, and refuse to allow anything to turn them around or distract them from their vision. In this persistence one must always do what is right for sake of conscience, not for pleasure of soul. - jufa Because daylight...

The only illumination was that of the myself. There were no distinct features which I could point to to say who the light form was, only a conscious awareness it was I. My hands, feet, head, torso, all were light. I was moving through darkness, and the fear I acknowledged would rupture my heart if ...

Re: The Collective Unconscious and Archetypes

I thought of this Jung quote this morning so just sharing. :) Whoever speaks in primordial images speaks with a thousand voices; he enthralls and overpowers, while at the same time he lifts the idea he is seeking to express out of the occasional and the transitory into the realm of the ever endurin...

IMO, jufa, there is a difference between the dissolution of the self as part of transcendence, and death. Of course, death may be the same, but nobody has come back so we do not know. And none of this can be proven... that is why I said in the beginning that the transcendent experience is totally s...

Bingo! When "I" ceases to exist, you have acheived transcendence! Ok...but the indiviual identity (formerly known as "I") will exist. Extistence is the "1". Even though "I" is gone, to exist still requires a notion of Self. Nothing exists after the "I" is gone... or everything exists. That is why I...

Re: What do you understand by "Transcendence"?

Transcendence is not nothingness. Transcendence is that region where being and nothingness become the same. It is beyond all categories of thought, because when I think, the "I" takes shape. In the transcendent realm there is no "I" - only pure experience. Nandu. To say the region which defines tra...

Your assessment may or may not be correct. I submit instead that fear is the driving force which leads a person to bravery. it is the balance of both forces in life that decides how a person will react and overcome the evils and goods in life. However, my words did not say that fear leads to failure...

I have had my share of discourses here, and I probably will have many more. What I have found to be the most misguiding force in conversations is the highs and lows a mind has traveled or not traveled. And the continuity of relativism, yet the subtlety of different thought expression which seem the ...

Speaking for myself Jufa, if the poster's writing style is particularly unique, I sometimes have trouble understanding what the actual meaning may be that's trying to be conveyed. Often shorter sentences and more punctutation helps me in this case, particularly if the typical sentence structure is ...
