    • Saw this and was reminded of this thread. "The trouble is that once you see it, you can't unsee it. And once you've seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There is no innocence. Either way, you're accountable." — Arundhati Roy

    • one of my theories on precognition is that an individual utilizes pattern recognition at a subconscious level and since they aren't consciously doing it it gives the impression of being psychic...

    • Quote: a tip for starting fires without a match.... So far, I have successfully started fire with every "element" (whether Classical or Wu Xing) except water. It's next on my list. My favorite method, however, is the fire piston. [video]
    • So, whos fault is it? (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • don miguel ruiz authored "the four agreements" as far as i can tell it is an evolution or perhaps a divergent interpretation of/to the works of carlos castaneda generally these can be found under the headings "toltec" "nagualism" and of course "new age" the agreements are 1 - be impeccable with your word 2 - dont make any assumptions 3 - dont take anything personally 4 - always do your best not making assumptions and not taking anything personally are the most relevant here, though being impeccable with your word means one the one hand expressing and explaining things as precisely as possible so that you are understood and also being resolutely honest, but also being absolutely inflexible about dishing out poison or emotional gunk. basically never using ones words to hurt or punish others or to vent our own negativity/spread poison into other peoples emotional states what he says about assumptions is that they cause of a huge amount of sabotage in relationships all kinds of relationships, but especially romantic ones because the assumption is that the other person understands how we feel about everything and how we will interpret their actions or words in virtually every instance, and so if they dont live up to our expectations we further assume that its because they dont care about us or about how we feel or that they dont respect us not to mention all the assumptions we make about what theyre thinking or doing on their own so the next thing usually is we take this personal and we say things we dont really mean and that serve no purpose other than to hurt or punish the other person as i think about it, adherence to any one of these agreements would have totally changed the way this situation played out even doing her best if she would have been deliberately mindful of the idea of always doing her best then she might have gone on to bed without him, or she would have found something else to focus on deliberately without being distracted or her best to not take personally that ole dude was late likely she would not even have dropped the cup to begin with thats what this conversation reminded me of doing our best means doing our best to live up to the other agreements also
    • Meditation tips (Last post by Adder)
    • Quote: Rid your mind of any "empty head" nonsense you may have heard, and just be aware. Nonsense!!! My heads empty often and your right it is non-sense :lol: Perhaps better put, it could be the first step to being better able to focus on the 'mindstream' is just to observe it, but then for many later on it becomes second nature to work with it easily from emptiness to focused and back again as required - of course it cannot be empty, its just less detached and errant. Large chunks of Vajrayana are dedicated to 'cutting off' the mindstream to go deeper and deeper, perhaps better phrased as truer and truer or more 'now'!!! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%B6d
    • Mars One (Last post by a67)
    • It's easy to say, first we need to focus on Earth problem. Wich are the problems our planet are suffering? There a lot of things we don't know about the space. I don't think it's going to be a failure unless we begin a war on space. If we focus to the sucess instead of failure we can move mountain. Can we change the problems on Earth or do we really want? Who don't want the current state change? I am not pointing on anyone. I am just sure things can change easily in 10 years. Unfortunately, we are not aware of all the technologies we have now. www.nbcnews.com/science/space/life-mars-...hane-mystery-n269311 worldbuilding.stackexchange.com/question...evive-its-magnetosph www.mars-one.com/mission/risks-and-challenges www.theweathernetwork.com/news/articles/...blic-interest/47616/ Just like that. Life is a one way trip too.
