Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

Have to say that I consider this video to be much worse than the previous video you provided.

My two chief disagreements are the phrases "one with the Universal Mind" and the "eyes of God".

Re: Killing the "Dragon" of Duality

I have already started a thread providing a general context for the symbolism in 2001--A Space Odyssey, of which there is much more to say.

But I have also written quite lengthy descriptions of...

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

...

As I see it, One is Light.

The differentiation into Duality is Darkness.



Precisely.

2001--A Space Odyssey & the Vision of the "Son of man"

Briefly, the monolith in 2001--A Space Odyssey is symbolic of the "observing consciousness" Created 'by and in the image of God' (Genesis 1:27); with the HAL 9000 computer being a symbol for the...

Re: Killing the "Dragon" of Duality

Not at all.

I am not claiming that the creators of the cartoon Sleeping Beauty had any idea at all what those images signified. They were operating merely on the basis of "inspiration".

But...

Re: Killing the "Dragon" of Duality

Thanks so much for the response.

I didn't know whether anyone was appreciating this or not.

The morphing of Maleficent into the "dragon" was probably one of the most magnificent things I had...

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

You have to be quite careful here not to be distracted from the fundamental issue, which is maintaining a consciousness independent of the consciousness of the 'thinker'.

The questions "Where do...

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

Agreed.

A very good video, presenting a very clear explanation of consciousness and reality.

Except for one thing:

There is no such thing as the 'mind', for the same reason that there is no...

Certainly, an interesting website.

But, after a few minutes of searching, I did not see where it is ever specified that Jesus taught the Doctrine of "resurrection" as a Doctrine of 'Rebirth'; and...

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

Well, as I understand it, what is being discussed now is how religious doctrine contributes to and exacerbates duality, which is what the 'ego' is a manifestation of in the first place.

So the...

Sir,

You have a lot of good questions.

Oh, sorry. This was certainly not my intention.

To me, the words carried the context with them.

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

As I see it, the situation is much more serious than this.

It has to do with the destruction of the very meaning of words.

Take, for example, the phrase "We are all One."

This is the "beast...

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

I cannot agree with this statement.

The thoughts of the 'fallen' consciousness--that is, the consciousness of the "self" and the 'thinker'--are fallacious.

But the thoughts of God are "as high...

Well, Satan would have to be the origin of the duality.

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

I consider it to be a quite egregious error to introduce God into this situation as a 'kind' of consciousness.

What is typically referred to as God is, instead, nothing more than an experience of...

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

Unfortunately, all of this still exists in the realm of duality; the reason being that the 'thinker' or 'ego' is merely one aspect--specifically, the "beast of the earth" in Revelations 13:1 and Sura...

Re: The ego what is it? How to transcend?

Well, first I have to consider whether providing such an explanation would come under the category of "self-promotion".

What do you 'think'?
