The Arahat Athersata is the book that explains why all religions lead to consciousness enslavement.

The purpose of Creation is the evolution of the consciousness with the effect being an ever closer approach to perfection.

Each human being has a Creational fragment that enlivens the body with a consciousness that is tasked towards consciousness evolution.

It take 40 - 60 million years for the consciousness in man to evolve beyond the need for a physical host. Thereafter, the Creational fragment continues onward as part energy and part consciousness taking a Billion years to shed the energy component becoming the lowest level pure consciousness form. Further Billions of years of consciousness evolution are required before the Creational fragment reflects completely the knowledge and wisdom of the Creation so that Creational fragment loses all distinctness and merges with the Creation.

The Arahat Athersata goes into detail about the consciousness and sub-consciousness, about positive, negative, and neutral thinking making clear that the consciousness in its natural state is neutral.

Life desires pull thoughts away from the neutral stance causing the consciousness to be pulled away from its neutral stance counterbalanced by the sub-consciousness resulting in wrong actions and the resulting undesired and unstable experiential outcomes.

Thus the importance for neutral-positive thinking to pull experiences that are neutral-positive and stable allowing for unhindered consciousness evolution.

Those trained in psychiatry will find many insults reading the AA as their technique only brings the opposite of the desired effect.

“Dance Me to the End of Love” is the first track from singer, songwriter, musician, and poet Leonard Cohen and his seventh studio album “Various Positions”, which was released in 1984. The track was written by Cohen and composer David Campbell, with production done by John Lissauer.

“Dance Me to the End of Love” may appear to be a love song, Cohen has actually stated that the song was inspired by the Holocaust in a 1995 radio interview: “It’s curious how songs begin because of the origin of the song, every song, has a kind of grain or seed that somebody hands you or the world hands you and that’s why the process is so mysterious about writing a song. But that came from just hearing or reading or knowing that in the death camps, beside the crematoria, in certain of the death camps, a string quartet was pressed into performance while this horror was going on, those were the people whose fate was this horror also. And they would be playing classical music while their fellow prisoners were being killed and burnt. So, that music, “Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin,” means the beauty thereof being the consummation of life, the end of this existence, and of the passionate element in that consummation. But, it is the same language that we use for surrender to the beloved, so that the song — it’s not important that anybody knows the genesis of it because if the language comes from that passionate resource, it will be able to embrace all passionate activity.”

The music video was released in 1994 but uploaded to Cohen’s official YouTube channel in March 2010. Directed by Mark Pellington, the video shows Cohen performing the track on a stage live, intertwined with couples dancing with one another or kissing one another with projections of their wedding day photos behind them.

Hello All,
I guess i must have been living under a rock to only now realize this space even exists. Seems like we have some amazing people in here and it feels like heaven to my bookworm soul.

In terms of Arahat Athersata, i can see why it might not sit well with psychiatrist. I personally did a minor in pysch during university and it does go against a lot of what you're taught but as Nietzsche said,

“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”

You have to know what the opposing views say, what they're based on, if you want to succeed in refuting them. If you can't, then there has to be a flaw in your own perspective. By extension it just brings you closer to the truth.

That being said, the truth most people are seeking is likely to lead them into an existential crises which is why so many don't actively try to dig it out and instead prefer remaining in the bliss of ignorance and comfort of the known / familiarity.

If i get my hands on it, i'd like to read it. These days, i'm buried under a mountain of reading about political writers and history. I need a change.

So happy to see you back here and hear your news, my dear @nightstar !💜 hugsmle
I have to agree with your " beautiful normal routine" part...my routine is something I've learnt to adore and appreciate the most and I'm really upset when something comes on the way and breaks it. default_moque.gif
It's really good news vaccines reached your end as well. I've done both doses and waiting for the third next month...things are getting really bad here once again.😌😌
About your relationship, I would only say the famous Helen Keller quote... " When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” with the hope you're feeling well and you're at the first part of it. Remember always, the best is yet to be lived in this wonderful, adventurous life! :bbeatingheart: trose

Yes, It's almost a year since Alana passed away and there's no day I didn't think of her until now.💔💔 She is and always will be greatly missed and always in our hearts.💙 I wonder if we could do something on that day, Nov. 26. I don't know what it could be, maybe share something, remember her, and celebrate her life...

We had a great sixth wave of Covid a month ago and specialists believe that the sixth peak was high and long so we have a quite fine social immune this autumn. At the same time after the presidential election in Iran the conservative party who is now in charged tried to import vaccine and doing vaccination. Before election they insisted on producing domestic vaccine orageodesespoir thousands of people lost their life due to the fight between parties (shameful)

Hope in Europe things get well soon and the third dose vaccination helps to control the wave tcandle

Dear Joanne your words are so kind and full of wisdom reminded me are beloved Alana. Thank you so much. I have really good friends in my life and they are blessings of God, I know. Alana made this thread and brought us all together. I'm really honored to know her and learned from her. There were really hard moments in my life that I applied what she had written here.

She was like a light showing the path and she was the reason that I believed more because I heard it from and other tongue. She helped me to expand my comprehension. She was a true teacher it was her nature and I know she is happy and blessed.

As you said there isn't any single day that I didn't think about her.

Hope I can come here on 26 Nov. and celebrate her life kindness and wisdom, May God bless her and I'M SURE SHE IS IN PEACE AND HAPPINESS :bbeatingheart:
