According to tons of empirical Near Death Experience evidence, there is no gender where there is no physicality. Since you keep referring to he or she or he/she it seems that you're not using real or literal information as part of your discussion in a literal topic. This topic is not philosophical or religious. It is scientific and about the application of that understanding. But if you insist that we indulge, actually, we weren't "given" a choice. We always had it. If you have the ability to converse with trees or even rocks (yes, they do have consciousness and they can "talk"), you would realize that choice is never given or taken from anything or anyone, not even from those that people would say is "inanimate" or "dead". It always was and is and will be for anything in existence. And we don't have to choose to accept or reject either. We can choose something else. It is ironic that you use philosophical material that is not duality based in order to make dualistic statements. In any case, please don't turn this thread from a scientific discussion into a religious one. And by religious, i mean dogma and repetition of what religious leaders say. You don't know what they're talking about so don't repeat it - you first have to understand it to earn that right. There's a difference between introspection, questions, or perspective one the one hand (which is welcome) and prescription or preaching on the other hand (which is not welcome).Gadhai wrote:He/she always gives us that choice, to accept or reject. However we are finite and he/she is infinite, so we kinda need him/her more than he/she needs us!
I see, so if we don't accept what you say or what someone else says is the truth, then we are condemned as not being humble? I.e. prideful? Thats one point. I find it funny how religious people across any religion behave exactly the same. "See it my way or you are bad or you're in trouble in some way!" - intimidation and manipulation disguised as divine attitudes and sincere intentions. The ultimate form of deception and perversion. Its interesting how Jesus called such people poisonous vipers whose father is the father of lies. But lets not get into scriptures here.Gadhai wrote:By putting ourselves in the most extreme negative position, we attract the positive. The infinite then descends to meet the finite, i.e. Through humility.
Another point on why your analogy and logic is ridiculous, is that any spiritual master is humble, and even "God" is humble (we judge ourselves after physicality, not "God"), then no one good is ever positive because everyone must always be negative (humble). In fact the only ones not negative (humble) would be those that aren't humble (i.e. positive) and since positive and negative attracts according to your analogy, that means I'll attract arrogant people and arrogant spirits with evil intentions - by your very own explanation! Thats the second point.
According to tons of empirical psychic experience, education, and evidence of the taught principles - you can't be more wrong on the analogy. Negative positions are associated with low frequencies and attracts negative non-physical entities which feeds on that 'flavor' of negative energy - based on fear and its fellow emotions. One of the most basic and foundational principles taught in psychic defense (necessary preparation for any psychic activity) is to raise one's attunement to what most call the extreme positive, in order to REPEL negative elements. Whether we use the analogy wrongly (as i just demonstrated) or rightly (as I just demonstrated), the "truth" is that things work different to what you are saying they do.
I wonder if you are humble enough to consider this feedback?
Of course we will reject it. By your definition of truth, we cannot accept it unless it comes directly from the one Supreme Absolute Truth. Thats a fancy word for "God". If you expect us to just accept whatever you say, you imply that you see yourself as "God". How very humble of you....Gadhai wrote: Here are some more absolutes for your contemplation and rejection... ;D
By definition anima must be scripted.
The script is humor based.
Comedy is the fabric of all existence.
On the second statement, well if anima is scripted as you insist it is, then it is scripted by free will choice. So there's no point in saying its "scripted" as we still have complete choice and control over all of it if we want to.
If the script as you say is humor based and comedy is the fabric of all existence, then you are saying that suffering children dying from aids or hunger or both in Africa is funny. Or bankers that tell good people to go play soldier against the greedy banker's enemies and get themselves killed and leave their own families fatherless is funny. You think life is funny? Just remember you will be judged by your words. Perhaps in the next life you will find out just how funny life can be if this is humor to you.
Don't say things you have no understanding of. You will literally be learning the understanding of them the hard way. Ironic that you talk about choice then talk cynically how everything's scripted, or how you talk about humility but act like you know "truth" which you define as being from "God" - and then you demonstrate how little humility you have. So ironic.
And for anyone that thinks I'm over the line by this rant - just remember, i was one of these people. i did the same things. I said "wise sayings" and tried making others feel inferior if they didn't accept it, but in such a way that I was seen as a person with wonderful intentions. I was poison. I was self-deluded. Perhaps if I give another one like this a wake-up call (even by shock treatment artillery), I may somehow make a little up for all the hurt I've caused by doing the same.
