Re: Can you explain what God is?

As you move farther east, concepts of God tend to become more and more apophatic and tenuous. As ST said numerous times before, there's a sense in which it's impossible to think about God without really thinking only about oneself....so, kinda like that. TYPES OF YOGA Gyana Yoga is the philosophica...

Re: Can you explain what God is?

that seems like you working in the vain of the meme idea, that seems to me to be an Orwellian trick to get people abdicate thinking fror themselves, also a means of labeling ideas you don't like as sickness. Belief in God is a brain disease. what Dawkins said., I know you are not into that but stil...

Re: Can you explain what God is?

It's a dense article Okay, 'no thinker'? .... in the sense of no pre-expectations? No thinker in the sense of negating the thinker. It seems to me that the 'thinker' appears nominally in our experience and is linked to the child ego. We are literally handed over to these thought patterns and proces...

Re: Can you explain what God is?

Hey sgttomas I found certain implications in the above dialogue particularly with; "Does the thinker think that thought is limited or does thought itself realize it is limited? I do not know if you see the difference." Going to have a read of your post now. Edit; To clarify I find it interesting in ...

Re: Can you explain what God is?

"We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." "At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? He called a little child to him, ...

Can you explain what God is?

"TRADITION AND REVOLUTION DIALOGUE 25 BOMBAY 9TH FEBRUARY 1971 'GOD' Questioner P: Krishnaji, at one level, your teaching is very materialistic because it refuses to accept anything which does not have a referent. It is based on "what is". You have even gone so far as to say that consciousness is th...

Re: Say, are we talking about the same thing?

Great dialogue as always,

Is what is also what it is not? "I am that I am"? Is curious as "It is at once a name revealed and something like the refusal of a name" <wiki

Re: from superfund's discussion on consciousness

It's just hard to talk about anything without drawing up dichotomies, juxtapositions, or comparisons and contrasts.... :) (Interestingly, it seems even SF made an implicit male/female juxtaposition in his post). So is language essentially all metaphor - are we always talking about things in terms o...

Re: from superfund's discussion on consciousness

Jim, maybe it's more of a muddle than that? There's no ultimate difference between the particles in a river and the energetic rules governing them, according to Relativity. But energy is just a measurement of change, so this strikes me as related to Malabou's concept of 'placticite' - ie that being...

Re: from superfund's discussion on consciousness

s fundamental property of nature the same as fundamental property of matter? Nature, in the broadest sense, is the natural, physical, or material world or universe. "Nature" can refer to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. So the fundamental property would be energy? S...
