Free Will - Free Thinking - Freedom

We should encourage the free will of people, not squash it or say that it does not exis.

There is always choice, your experience here is not for naught and you are never really trapped.

If you had the keys and did not want anyone else to have them, what would you tell them?

Stripping the Gurus—Gurus and Prisoners

Stripping the Gurus—Gurus and Prisoners

Interesting Reading. Dont make the prison one you impose on yourself. You are meant to be getting free, not wrapping the chains tighter around yourself

Just Remember...

Just remember that a lot of "spiritual" people out there, just like corporations, governments and employers want to keep you under their spell, looking at their version of reality and part of their illusion.

They will tell you anything to achieve this.

Back to basics

There is nothing wrong with you, your ego, your personality or your place in the world.

Its how you apply the above that makes the difference.

Enlightenment is understanding your place as a part of the whole. Being able to open a door from time to time and get a glimpse, just a glimpse mind you, of the machinery that is working underneath. Realise that you are a small cog in that mighty engine.

Notice the cycles

Hi all,

I have noticed over the past few weeks that a lot people that are generally very frequent posters on spiritual topics have been posting less and less. Maybe its everybody getting busy for christmas and the end of year crazyness, or maybe it is something more.

If one looks there are always cycles and currents of thoughts swirling around the web. Ebbs and flows of thoughts, concepts and memes. An idea grabs everyone, posts are written, comments are recorded.

Perhaps a lot of us have talked ourselves into a bit of an intellectual dead end.

Lets get the conversation started, lets get the excitement and thrill of sharing ideas going once more. I promise that I will share more of what is exciting me.

Sorry for the loss of words - And this rant.

Hi All,

Sorry about the break in blogging from myself but it seems as If I have been at a loss for words over the last week.

I feel that I am walking the last steps of a very long road and walking towards.. well walking towards nothing. The whole idea of enlightenment seems to have dissapeared in a big puff of smoke. The wizard is just a little guy behind a curtain. Look at the Emporers fancy new clothes.

Not that I dont feel spiritual, or connected(disconnected), or even appreciative of the cosmic whole. I think the words of Jed Mckenna are finally starting to really sink in.
Enlightenment is this term that is thrown around, but no-one really knows what it is.
Is it a state of mind, is it a feeling, is it a place? Is it all of them? People go through dark nights of the soul searching for this thing that may or may not exist, or even if they attain it will they know that they are there?
(I dont think i have ever written a post with so many ? in it :) )

If you really have a think about it how can you tell that another person is enlightened? The main tennant of my life over the last 6 months has been to question almost everything. Why do we do things this way and not that? Should we not question people who believe they are enlightened and see what makes them different to everyman on the street.

Cool, now I have thought of a heap more posts for the site....
