You say tomato I say tomatoe

Postby placid » Thu Jan 25, 2018 8:48 am

Nondualism is so alien to the Westerner mind that they would sooner put the white jacket on us than actually think about what we are saying.

And Western Cartesian split-mind dualism is so alien to the Eastern mind that they can't even really grasp it.

Lets call the whole thing off.

How do you say tomate in Swahili?

Different strokes for different folks...all the same one love action dreaming difference where there is none.

You know you really can transcend those prison walls you know, but then, beyond those bars there really is nothing to get excited about.

No man has ever been seen, I guess that is kind of funny.

"Meow," usually. That's what makes it so difficult to distinguish from "meow" (cat food), "meow" (litter box), and "meow" (Get off the couch and feed me, stupid human.)

Just remember you are not the word, the word is just a sound, sound comes and goes in you, a word is just a sound with attached meaning an interpretation of the mind. Sound comes and goes, what you really are does not come and go, you are the nameless silent constant that is always and never not been here. Here now is the experience, no one has ever experienced not being here.
