Let's start with a fairly simple question.
What is consciousness?
Let's make this a bit interesting... I want you to look at your hand, Now, observe that you are looking at your hand... Now, look at who observes the hand...
...that who which observes the hand through his eyes and observes the observer...that is pure consciousness. It has no identity, it has no desires, it has no gender, it is pure consciousness. Being aware of being aware...
Let's take a look at another example, when you wash dishes, or doing some other kind of a task. You're looking through your eyes and thinking with your brain...What if you look at this from the perspective of the observer himself? Now everything starts to look like a movie...

How do we find #peace in the midst of political strife, impeachment, coup attempt or whatever?
External events, especially those seeking outcomes that either attract or repel us, can trigger fears and desires that steal our #peace and lead us into conflict.
Political conflict results from a fear of an unknown future, and belief that fighting can allow us to control the outcome - which in reality is, for most, beyond influence or control.

Throughout the centuries, people came to India for self realization. That time there was no religion. It was just dharma and adharma. Eastern Dharma are different then those of their counterparts. This includes: Sanatan dharma, Chinese folk, tao, Shinto, Buddhism, Jainism
Transforming the Atman into a fully realized soul is the ultimate goal. When the boundary between body and rest of the world diminishes, we can say that we stepped into higher #consciousness
This knowledge began primarily by shaivas of Kashmir, Buddha of Nepal, Vaishnav chennai
Seekers always seek as they know they are blinded by externalities. Caught, enthralled, bound by Maya. Over the years of life, start feeling to be enslaved by the system of the world. The ultimate understanding remains obscure. Our ultimate quest is in hidden in ourselves

After much contemplation, I finally wrote about my experience with #Vipassana meditation.

ilareddy.com/2019/09/17/bre…

Sharing some quotes/excerpts/concepts in the thread below.
#Vipassanā in Pali means “#insight” or “seeing deeply”.

The practice of Vipassanā meditation, thus, revolves around training your mind to observe reality as it is, and not as you wish it to be. And in the process, overcome #suffering.
It is a #meditation technique that the #Buddha mastered over time and found to be the most effective in eradicating all kinds of suffering in the world.

Saturn turns direct on Wednesday September 18th at 4:46 am eastern time in the sign of Capricorn and this is a very big deal. 🌟 We will be feeling the energetic affects of this cosmic movement all week long from the Saturn slow down, to the pause and then direct forward movement
2. Just as reminder when any planet turns direct or retrograde it is not really moving backwards or pausing in the sky. Retrograde or direct is an energy change we feel because of the planet's position to Earth and how it is moving around the Sun. When a planet is in retrograde
3. the energetics give us time to pause, review, re-assess, re-do, revamp, reclaim various aspects and areas of our life. Make adjustments so that when the planet moves forward again we can also move forward, break a stall and get going in some area of life. Retrograde periods

The moment you #renounce #responsibilities you also renounce #freedom. These are the complexities of life: freedom and responsibilities remain and go away together.

More you love freedom, more you will be ready to #accept responsibilities.
But outside the world, outside the #society, there is no possibility of any #responsibility. And it has to be remembered that all that we learn, we learn through being #responsible.
#Escaping to the #forest and the #mountains, you are simply escaping from a learning situation.

In a cave in the Himalayas you won’t have any responsibility, but remember, without #responsibility you cannot #grow; your #consciousness will remain #stuck.

It is possible to discover God purely through the power of intellect. The philosophers of the theistic Samkhya studied the evolutive nature of prakrti but, more importantly, recognized its limitations. In this manner, they worked their way upwards towards spiritual personality.
One fatal mistake that seems to be all-pervading in the scholars' analyses of the Samkhya #philosophy is many of them seem to have succumbed to the erroneous view that the purusa (spiritual personality) is totally devoid of karma. This could also have been the view of some
of the original exponents of this school. This is a mistake of epic proportions and practically strips the purusa of any operative powers reducing him to some substance-like pure entity, albeit of a conscious nature. However, purusa is not a substance-like non-operative entity

#IBelieve..

This is #TooGoodNotToShare..

We spend the best years of our lives waiting for a #Miracle when the miracle is #Life itself

We wait for approval,we wait for promotion,we wait for the bonus,we wait for freedom,we wait for a revelation AND in all this,we forget to live
Today, I make this promise to myself. No more waiting. I will live each day like it was the last day of my life. And I will live each day like it is the first day of the rest of my life with no regrets of the day that was..
I will be #Courageous.
Not courageous like a #Soldier under fire, but courageous enough to not wait. Courageous enough to #Live every moment to the hilt.

#Courageous enough to know that the only losses I should fear are the loss of #Love and #Respect, for myself & for those around me.

With all the AI-buzz going on both in threads here and out there in the real world, something struck me.

Contemplate this.
02] The double slit experiment, and also particle entanglement, points to matter being an emergent quality of consciousness.

And not the other way around.

This is most likely ancient and esoteric/intuitive/lost knowledge, ...

Because the obvious implification, is that we have emerged from and still exists in a causal sea of conscious energy and potential.
