Interesting Alder. And yet there are those who lose "themselves" in games, which are even more imaginary in order to "get out" of this imaginary game. "A dream with a dream" as Poe wrote.

With this one I recommend ignoring the video, as the auto-focus is going nutz throughout the whole thing.   The audio portion, on the other hand, is like a laser beam that surgically cuts away so much of the bullshit produced by the mental condition.

 

 

Identification as what you're not is a really fuckin', really, really, really, really, perverse love affair.

This could, I suppose, have gone into the documentaries thread, but it just seemed to belong to the spirituality side of things.  I really enjoyed watching and learning from this.

I can appreciate what is said here, but...   'I don't know' has great potential.

Why do we not just become the gods we are looking for?

That may be, but few know, in a true and visceral sense, how to use or be in and truly know that state.

Or they don't believe it's possible, or they are trained to think that seeking such a thing is evil.

So what's the difference between a people becoming gods, and those who are gods, but do not know it, or how to be it.

Enlightenment, that is the difference. An enlightening to this truth.

If you will allow, there is not a this truth.   There is only Truth, which no thing can exist outside of.  And, just so, no gods, as all the plural forms of gods would be in it too.  And, of knowing?  True knowing is not of the body/mind, but only of the being in which the bodies and minds have arisen. 

 

If we are already the being, what makes us think we aren't that?

Indeed Alder, indeed, and our existence is Truth's examination of itself.

Allen as a young man, probably in the late fifties or early sixties. No beard!
