Letting go of the Myth that there is a God to let go of.

Postby placid » Fri Jan 26, 2018 7:02 pm

No one was born knowing anything, no one was born with an attached label hanging from their finger indicating this is who I am. The I am doesn't have a label, it simply is and does not need to know it is to be. This is self-evident.

God is a known concept,it's another label known, because of what's written on the label in the form of language.. therefore all knowledge is illusory, only not-knowing is real. No one has any idea what they are looking at in the material world, neither do they know who or what they are...they only know any thing by what's written on the label which attaches an artificial identity upon this already present not-knowing presence... labels are simply phantom knowledge attached by the mind onto that which is already present prior to any knowing of it.

Not that there is anything wrong with this...it's how no thing communicates with itself. Language is useful in that respect. It's unique to humans, but it is a phantom.

All Rebuttals welcome.

Rude immature name callers will be ignored...take your tantrums and toy throwing out of the pram episodes somewhere else..and strictly no dead memory shaggers here welcome either.

It is obvious that you do not accept answers. Why do you keep asking?

The only known concept at birth is "tits nourish". God is a learned concept.

There is no statement so absurd that it has not been uttered by some philosopher. - Cicero

To be frank (and although I'm far from qualified to say this) I think it's sad how she comes here periodically, displays increasing agitation and paranoia, makes a fool of herself and then disappears until the next time. The cyclical nature of her attendance makes me wish I could appeal to her to return to her doctor, but she won't believe that I worry about her welfare.

I wish she'd finally accept the peace that ends all seeking offered in "her teaching". She must not really understand it - or not really want it.

I hope you not losing too much sleep over worry about placid running around in your mind, I can recommend a good sleeping pill to stop the thoughts. They're so bothersome them pesky thoughts eh? damn things.

Being a dickhead tw*t does not affect my peace, my peace is with me always, no matter what I get up to.

I am peace, the monkeying around is how my peace entertains itself, it's not always wanting to sit still, try it sometimes, it's wild to be a crazy bat shithead idiot and know it...it's okay to be nuts, don't be scared, try it for yourself.

Doesn't that feel great?

Goes to show how much you (don't) know.

Plz take your meds. It seems you're on a manic episode. You might harm yourself (and/or others).

It's known how to suckle, but the baby doesn't know that knowing, the knowing is an automatic instinct that is beyond and prior to any human comprehension of it. The baby is just the mechanical mechanism for knowing to express itself through.

Now your just talking absolute bollocks, you have no way of knowing that about me.

It's okay, most humans are full of bollocks...your not alone.

Well you are alone, but you have an imaginary friend called your name tag that tags along, but we won't go into that now.

Huh, I thought you told me you was liberated...surely you don't believe I actually would harm another living being?

What the f is wrong with you,. make your mind up. Don't you know that liberated people are proud to be crazy because they know it's not real, and that it's all pretence?

Nothing can harm you but your own thoughts. But can a thought actually harm you?


I THINK NOT . :lol:

You got that wrong. Nothing really changes. Taking the liberty to deliberately go overboard is a common mistake the novice makes.

No it doesn't.

It's just a dream. The defensive part is also part of it, nothing to get excited about, it's just a play, I'm only pretending to be defensive.
