→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: LIVING AS TRUTH
vertical line Posted on May.30.2013 @ 01:52AM EDT by so_teh
Thought has moved full circle,

Senses have absorbed in the heart.

Empty of a separate self,

There is not "I" but only Truth.

Don't see yourself in 5 years. Just see yourself now, and yourself in 5 years will be better for it. :-)

vertical line The universe is a hologram and you're the past, present and future all rolled into one tight and tidy UPS package posted to an unstable universe and subject to change without notice - receding, losing its underlying support - this is not really 2013 and you're out of time entirely ...

Dear esoteric , you said , I quote "What current understanding do you have that lies outside living as in life?" un-quote

If I could understand you correctly , living in life and being awake provide condition and that condition is my current self ...as I proceed with my life the condition changes as myself change ..............

Please explain your words again if I answer you wrongly .

Thks

Associated with a thought is a word which leads a feeling into action either to discard, prevent, develop or promote. Thought must be able to think.
