  Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
The seeker... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: CUT YOURSELF IN HALF
vertical line Posted on Mar.12.2009 @ 12:30PM EDT by shayne

you would cut yourself in half.

aspects of no mind.

aspects of no thought.

when will you stop?

these are all aspects of a WHOLE human being.

logic and reasoning and thought and mind are ALL good.

Dont follow some creed and ism and cut yourself in half and divide yourself.

vertical line Aspects of no mind, not thought...... does not mean your braindead. The mind is supposed to be used as a tool that is drawn upon as needed like an arm  would be. Reason is still there. ( So I understand )

Clear mind, attention, awareness of the moment, thoughts as they come

Instead of spaghetti of thoughts of past and future events

What is so great about being a human being?

The egocentricity of humanity is threatening to make the world a place where humans cannot survive.

I think the other species, the ones that will survive, are looking forward to that.  Many of them were here for many millions of years before the first human walked on two legs, and will be here many millions of years after humans are gone.

Do they know that?  Sure, on an unconscious level everyone knows everything, regardless of form or species, because we are all the same One.

"Im not sure I understand what you mean by unconcious. I know for a fact that there are many things that go on...on an unconcious level,or is that subconcious? Anyways,things can surface that one doesnt even know is there. Many dreams will reveal these things for example. It is a truth that finds its way to the concious mind.Dont yah think?

You have been in this forum for years, Shayne, longer than me, and you have to ask that question?  Even if you do not agree you should know what I mean by now.

Actually I thought more about this, Shayne, and as far back as I recall you have been playing the role of the ANTI-ZEN.

The forum benefits from your negative example as much as any positive one, so stick with it and keep it up. 

Good on you for your self-sacrificing service.

I have been practicing Self-Hypnosis for about 40 years. 

I do not know what the Subconscious or Unconscious is, but I have worked with it, and it works.
