Love = God = Brahman = Christ = Buddha = YOU!
I don’t care about what people believe. I’m talking about definitions. When someone says “God” do you say “no thats not for me” or do you translate the word into your locally appreciated term?
I’m still surprised at the number of people who HAVE seen through the labels to find the reality of it. Are most people on here understanding that love is God or does this still seem illusive.
No matter the name: Universe, Atman, Brahman, energy, God, love, I AM light, Christ, bliss; whatever. Are we in agreement that we are talking about the something that feels beyond us until we realize that we are that (Love / God / toilet paper roll)?

I’m in agreement, definitely. It always throws me off when people rant about how “God doesn’t exist.” I just wonder to myself what they define as God because, really, how do you define this…thing we have so many words for?
I feel like it’s something you just feel… Some greater weird interconnectedness in which we’re all one thing. But I could be wrong because that’s really just me personally and I don’t want to speak for everyone else.
I add that disclaimer because if everyone felt the same way, there wouldn’t be so much..disconnectedness in this world.
Without contacting the entity that is imputed
You will not apprehend the absence of that entity
Ātman is an essence of things that does not depend on others; it is an intrinsic nature. The non-existence of that is selflessness
@healingchime, Interestingly, only yesterday I was thinking about importance of such stuff in spirituality. There was one ‘Soma’ mixture mentioned in the 1500 BC Indian-Vedas (known as ‘Homa’ amongst Persian-Zoroastrians), that was considered to be the holiest drink ever with health and esp. spiritual benefits. The original ingredients are now unknown. Many modern historians (not all) consider it to be a hallucinogenic mix. So, I was thinking like “Man, how could a ‘drug’ inspire a whole culture of ‘consciousness’ based spirituality?! Must be something innit.”
Thanks so much for your advice. I’ll definitely be on lookout for ayawaska – deserves a try!
Did I say empty? I said complete. It is you who seeks to attach more meaning, more conceptual weight to find deeper meaning than what is.
I can only assume this comes from a deep underlying feeling that we are empty, that there needs to be more and that we are broken.
We aren’t. We’re perfect and we’re not empty. You don’t need anything more than you are (and you/I/We aren’t gods, we don’t have to be, its enough to be human).
