Re: Exercise Time (Thinking)

Hi again FB, I did this today : You can notice somebody walking on the other side and try to think very clearly what can be inferred by what you perceive...You'll want to think very slowly. It's fine if you only take one step of though as long as you are concentrated and noticing if your inference h...

Re: The Ecology of Freedom

Hi Lou, I'm really enjoying this thread and learning a lot from it. If the below is simply a repetition, apologies from me too. It might be a useful rewording. Thus, I find the so-called tentative approach of 'way-searching' potentially more useful than a possibly more fundamental 'truth seeking' b...

Re: The Ecology of Freedom

YES INDEED if if one understands 'way finding' as a polar opposite of 'truth seeking" and CERTAINLY NOT if one understands 'way finding' as an auspicious arrival at an interdependent co-arising as when the student and teacher meet to create each other or when one stumbles upon a combination of...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

@Mr. Paradox Zone, I'm looking back through his post history but getting to the posts about meditation has been a trek, beyond the few I've read already. Would you recommend I bite the bullet and read them all indiscriminately? I'll listen to Steiner audiobooks and apply that, too. *lastly, I'm goi...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

Yeah. This is key. The immediate conception of clairvoyance for most people is that a kind of extra layer of perceptions is overlaid on top of our ordinary senses (for example we begin to see shiny auras around people). This of course implicitly assumes that the relation of the thinking ego towards...

Re: Exercise Time (Thinking)

Hi IC, I have no idea if this approximates the intended meaning of the original poster's inquiry Yes it does, thanks. I'll give some comments on what you wrote. I'm going to refer to the general approach as "fake it to make it* and if that's too general a description then please tell me. It's a...

Re: twin psychics

Hi again FB, Was off doing something else and this came to me again. It popped into my head the other night, on the street after a long absence. Given Adele (love her!) has been so helpful on another thread maybe Merideth could speak for me too? (I have an issue with "you wouldn't want it any o...

Re: twin psychics

Hi FB, Ah, OK, with the sports metaphor I was trying to convey where I'm at, realising that there was stuff I was leaving out that was also vital. (eg this isn't the last game but is important in determining the nature of future games) . I think this ties in with a response you of yours in another t...
