Thank you for clarifying this, I forgot about their importance, it's been a while. You raised some good questions in your posts.-OM- wrote:A) It was Penny and the Dog that solved all the cases.....
Gadget was too impressed, and consequently dumbed down with his "Gadgets"/technology, to be useful....
To me, such "study groups", communities, or whatever you like to call them, represent a place where you simply develop your consciousness etc. in harmony with others - like kids playing together - with the duality or without it. And bruce's concept of a "persona non grata" also comes to my mind.-OM- wrote:the purpose of Kheb-type environments is to FOCUS on what will get you out of the DUALITY game and on to playing different games and adventures of your own choosing.

I understand. For me, it's only important to start seeing the brushes of the bigger picture and hopefully learn something from it, such as "not to go twice on a very thin ice".
-OM- wrote:C) "Kheb"-type enivornments already exists. They exist because of the people involved, not because of a physical location. One could have a monastery in one's own home if the people involved are ready for it. A physical location is the least amount of concern involved in such matters.
I understand, you made a good point.-OM- wrote:B) Sorry, but my point about location was directed for those WAITING to start living "in rapport" and would rather continually talk about which thieves are less evil and more honorable than the other thieves.
If one wouldn't be "in rapport" with the ideas and "mission" of a monastery located in the Isolated Jungles/Mountaintop/Island, does it even MATTER where it's located?
I totally agree.-OM- wrote:And while location is important, again waiting for SOMEONE ELSE to do your work, so you can "start", also has a long disappointing history that anyone can point to.
2 or 3 people in rapport can find a property literally anywhere and start embodying what they "think" life would be like in the actual Kheb monastary.
Those little 2-3 person communities can move to where the "Kheb" monastery is when the time comes or vice versa if so aligned
Waiting for you or anyone else before taking action is headed down that same slippery slope of needing a "leader" and contrary to what your concepts of rapport are about...
I assume these "OTHER" adventures are as unique as your perception of bruce's "new trail through the forest". Can you be more precise about those other adventures?-OM- wrote:no matter how covered the path is you/we are walking, there have been those rare few that have walked it before and have left unnoticed-by-the-masses signposts for future travelers.
you don't realize others HAVE left a pre-existing trail that's near impossible to see
You've blazed a path and others will use your signposts -- choosing to follow along exactly or weave in and out of the path to explore other things on the way...
You seem like the type that wants to create a completely new trail thru the forest.
or because your hard-wired to do things the "hard"/totally "unique" way
But I think we both agree, there are OTHER adventures out there than the one most people are entrained to.
