"Recognizing Human Insanity"
Just because you can label the ‘unconscious masses’ insane, why does that make you above and outside this insanity? If you explained the state of human existence to anyone, and gave them all the reasons why our society is sick, they’d probably agree with you. But that literally changes nothing about who they are. Concepts are concepts, beliefs are beliefs, and whatever you believe makes you no higher or better than anyone else. Mental claiming implies judgement, that you are ‘above’ the unconscious masses, when in reality it is this attitude that is actually what you were judging in the first place. You just fail to see the same mechanism you are judging acting within yourself. If you view yourself as living a ‘high existence,’ and look at the way everyone else lives as wrong, you are actually just living in the same existence as everyone else. The only difference is you claim yours is higher and better. Is this whole post extremely hypocritical? It probably is. That’s why we should all learn to just shut the fuck up.

@rickvonstar, yep, I agree and have faith that you know what you’re talking about. There are so many ways to say this. I tried to talk about it in the OP. It’s like in the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu says, “The Tao that can be spoken of is not the Tao.” There is no way to understand this logically, and if you try to you will automatically assume the person who said is a hypocrite with a cyclical argument.
@mikeyw829, Indeed, I think that when we stop thoughts and just see reality as it is without believing in most judgments that our minds habitually create, a lot of these ghosts like conscious/unconscious, sanity/insanity, seem to disappear
Again you’re pointing out the blatant hypocrisy, but doing so in a post that is an act of blatant hypocrisy. And you say others think in authoritative ways (something you couldn’t know because you can’t see their minds, only text on a screen. You don’t know ANYTHING about what anyone else is thinking) but you do so in authoritative way, more hypocrisy and more contradictions.
I didn’t say it had to be logical or conceptualized.
Just tell me what proof you have seen that convinced you into believing in this stuff.
As for the logic part, you gotta have some sort of logical path backing your belief up, all beliefs go along with one of these.
It looks like you’re avoiding the questions. Either that, or you did not understand them.
How is the part about “thinking without being doesn’t matter” anything more than an opinion? Again, you’re the one blaming others for “authoritative” statements, yet you do it yourself over and over again. You don’t follow the advice that you tell others to follow, and that means you do not really know it. Because, like many great teachers have said, “not doing = not knowing.” All this “great truth” you bring, is really no more than beliefs and opinions. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it seems you do not recognize it as such.
This is just like all that shit you pulled back in the day when you had your grudge on me (which I’m assuming you’ve dropped by now.) Projections, parataxic distortions, and loads and loads of contradictions.
