Metaphor

Hey Well let me first apologize if this has been covered again in some other topic and if there is such a topic it would be nice if you could point me out where it is. So here is my situation.

Andreas Wrote Well I think for me its the same thing. Full acceptance is required to love your self but unconditional is required to love the world. I guess you need both right? I like you're distinction. I was also looking at it as being the same thing. But even if a person can have unconditional ...

In paragraph 96, Jesus says: " You have me as a bed, rest upon me. Who I am, you shall know when I depart . What now I am seen to be, that I am not. You shall see when you come. If you had known how to suffer, you would have been able not to suffer. Learn how to suffer, and you shall be able not to...

Love requires unconditional acceptance. :shock: Love equals full acceptance, but it is not the same as saying love requires unconditional acceptance. Carmela, I am surprised a lawyer like your self can't distinguish between identity of self and quality of self. We can love our self without loving e...

Does the tree of knowledge lead to the tree of life? I would have to say "yes". This is where I feel that the whole "Garden of Eden" story and the "Prodigal Son" story are the same. Unless we are separated, we will never come to the knowledge that we have always been one. When we become conscious o...

Re: Anthropologist

I find most of you mistake the core of the search. In the 21st Century we should overcome our religious superstitions and seek for a better world based on reason and science. Schools do not usually teach you the scientific thinking because governments believe keeping people in darkness it´s the bes...

Amazing post BiggieDe. Yes it is hard to put it into words but you did a great job. Well i think i know better now what you mean its all about the experience its not about logic.

Again thanks Neoplato and BiggieDe. the key thing I think ultimately becomes in what way are we aware of our own existences? I mean do we see in dualistic terms and feel ourselves as individuals and separate in our lives? That would mean we relate in terms of separateness and differences. Very good ...

Yeap neoplato you are right in both of your statements the problem is (at least for me) how you go doing that when so many things seems to be in the way. I try to hold on to that concept and lead my life that way and its damn hard.
