Re: Re: Aba Brother

My mom called me an old soul, but I feel rather young after reading these posts. Yes, I have heard the question Nietzsche posed, and it is interesting. I shall be interested to see what resolution is in an answer to that question, though I have my own ideas. You are enjoying  - what? I can be rather concrete. Uhh, have you contracted a virus? Or, you mean this is going viral? LOL! I may grasp your teachings somewhat, but sometimes I fail to grasp the meaning of a simple sentence...

Re: Aba Brother

I'm glad you could grasp the deeper aspects of the delusionary mechanisms of desire, its seats and how they function as obstacles in preventing one from gaining knowledge of the spiritual. One has to hobble initially for a certain number of births then once the delusion is gone, he can accelerate towards his goal of liberation. Later on I'll discuss on how to reach that abode where the spirit that is (in the very ultimate analysis) what we are, lives in bliss forever. And there is no dilution of this bliss called ananda. The question then arises, if bliss is eternal for the spirit, will that spirit not get bored? This is the question that Nietzsche had wondered. Thanks big sis, I'm enjoying my viral fever.

Aba Brother

Hi Aba bro! This took a bit of thinking on my part, because the message seemed too simple: to thine own self be true. Perhaps on a deeper look I stumbled upon another meaning, the idea being that one may delude oneself from the sense of desire into thinking that it is possible to move along the steps required to get, say, from Point A to Point B, without knowledge - in the form of control over the senses. Without control of the mind, the intellect and our Consciousness, we will lose our knowledge, assuming we ever gained it, for this is what is expected of us. Desire, unrestrained, can be one's undoing. I hope I grasped the general idea a bit. Excellent, and deep. Well done. Thank you again, Aba dear brother.

Re: Anib

Thanks GM. I think you missed out on my previous post on the different modes of gunas - sattwa, rajas and tamas. The modes are of light, passion and darkness - clarity, mixed clarity raising passion to divert one from one's path, and ignorance of evil. Even the purest of gunas, sattwa has a binding effect (not letting one to liberate) in one's satisfaction, happiness, and pride of knowledge. This is common for intellectuals and even for the sadhus, ascetics or practitioners), it is difficult to overcome. Suppose one were to pursue knowledge, purely for knowledge's sake, he too is likely to fall into this trap. I hope I've been able to answer your question. Cheers.

And that too makes for a different mental make-up from those of karma or Gyana yogi's , being of different temperaments. Naturally. Their paths will be different to.

Re: Kabu

Not just only a little bit correct, you are fully correct, in that yours is the path of Devotion,  as you say  as long as you can keep god of your of understanding pleased. Secondly there is no path so easy as devotion or Bhakti yoga. .

Re: C C T

It could be, but very very rarely. The modes of nature called Gunas are so strong that they will hardly ever give one a chance to emulate others. Just as our fingerprints which is so unique in the sense that no two people in the entire course of evolution had the same prints, so is each of us individuals, that is where we are situated, the station. To catch a train we'll have to board from that very station. So is our onward journey to spiritualism to start in accordance with the modes of our intrinsic nature.

Anib

An interesting concept, that knowledge is cloaked and surrounded by desire,  so that you have to dismantle or defeat the desire, to get to the knowledge.  I will have to think about that one.  What if one simply desires knowledge,  and therefore seeks it through education, studying, travelling, etc.  That would seem to be a good thing...?

let me see if I got something correct while reading here.

For me what you wrote says that it is far better to follow my own path or twisty windy road in life so long as I keep my eyes of the God that I undersand. Not to argue or just blindly follow that path of others. I don't see this as home decor or competition in the work place. matters of the irritating smallness of the world views but to stay on the course that I feel pleases my God.

Am, I little bit correct dear teacher?

You are doing a great job breaking it down for us.

I just wonder ,what if another person's has better ideas or has a kinder more stable way of life. Would it not be better to take a chance and emulate his ways rather than flounder in one's own messed up life.
