Yeah, and besides, armpits have names (mine, for example are called Izzy and Wiffy). Even if you don't name yours, they are your "left armpit" and "right armpit". How in the name of all that is perfect you gonna find ineffable ineluctable transcendental union with some Nameable Thing, when everyone knowns the It that is All is No It, Nameless and Perfect in its luminescent Allness of Permanent and all-Transcending Out-Thereness beyond all lines, degrees, kinds, dimensions, names or categories known to us lesser mortals.

No way does it have smelly armpits!!!

Well, all things considered, folks, this has been an interesting and even humbling thread, I gotta say. I seriosuly had to examine my own arrogant, loud-mouthed, polysyllabic ways to see if they were as insane as some folks reckoned. I have given it much thought, and I have thought as well about the kind and humorous and many-faceted personalities that I know as my friends here at the Mducat.

I have thought about it hard, and I submit to you that even saying as much is prima facie evidence that insanity is not my category. I think it is a truism that reflecting on your own sanity is not a luxury the insane can really afford.

But I have gone further and reached a second conclusion. When I look at my friends and the roles we play here on the 'Cat, I realize I could be badly and madly mistaken, and I in fact might be insane, but given the places I hang out and the souls I call friend, it really doesn't matter to me if I am!!

Hope this puts the matter to rest. Monosodium will have to answer on his own behalf.

for all we know, the Oneness could be a big, muscular, sweaty, idol who smokes and has smelly armpit hair. and thats why its taking so long for all those Buddhist monks to attain Oneness, because they're ideating on something swirly n hazy without form or body odor.

maybe its time to stop washing armpits in the name of Oneness.

Ah, but Little Hawk, at the moment, I am playing the part that has been given to me. In the same way that, say, Sir Laurence Olivier was fully aware that he was Olivier while on stage playing Hamlet, I am equally aware that I am playing a part while in this world (that, as Shakespeare so aptly said, is but a stage [perhaps in two senses of the word "stage"]). While I am here, I would be remiss not to play my part as well as I possibly can, and if that part calls for occasional confrontation, well, that's the within nature of the play. To deviate from the role I am called upon to play would be to fail to adequately present the work of the Author of that play, n'est-ce pas?

Another way of putting it:   if, while in the eighth grade, I was so intent on getting into the nineth grade that I neglected the full and proper pursuit of my eighth grade studies, I might discover that I must repeat the eighth grade. Counterproductive.

Perhaps this was best expressed by Rabbi Zusya of Hanipal. He said, "In the world to come, they will not ask me, 'Why were you not Moses?' They will ask me, 'Why were you not Zusya?'"

Now you guys are getting silly... :-)

Don, my "leader" is within me, not vested in somebody outside of myself. Same goes for you. But...if I want to learn a new guitar technique, I go to someone who can show it to me. He's more experienced than I am in that particular matter. If I want to learn more about meditation or quieting the mind or moving kundalini or a new healing technique, I do likewise. I go to those who are more experienced at it, and have demonstrated it in a way that I can appreciate.

That does not mean that the practitioner then becomes my "leader" who then dominates the whole rest of my life. I have no such leader. I am my leader.


Amos - I do not intend to leave my ego behind or to destroy it. I intend to master it, instead of letting it lead me around by the nose for the rest of this mortal life. I intend the ego to become a useful servant, not a petty tyrant, as it is in most people. I intend to enlarge my awareness, not obliterate it in cosmic Oneness. I still have enough ego left, believe me, to get just a tad annoyed at your attempts to ridicule what you have seemingly only the vaguest notion of...given that you mentioned the "Krishna temple", of all things...and it's your little ego that prompts you to engage in such ridicule in the first place.

Zing! Little Hawk's ego and Amos's ego stalk portentiously into the ring, waving their little fists as the crowd roars for blood! (chuckle...) Little Hawk looks very fetching in a harvest-gold lycra Star Trek outfit, while Amos is clad in his armour of intellect, emblazoned "I cogitate, therefore I am!".

I hope Martin gets a laugh or two out of this...

And...achieving Oneness is not to become non-existent, it is to become existent in a far fuller sense of the word. It is to become existent with expanded awareness...while still functioning as a unique expression in manifestation.

I can play "Hamlet" in the Earthly play if I want to...and yet become aware that I am not just "Hamlet". I am the actor, and I will still be the actor after Hamlet is dead and the play has ended!

Most people lose themselves in the part. They become convinced that they ARE Hamlet or Ophelia or Rosencrantz, etc...and get caught in the emotional dramas of fear, excitement, ambition, tragedy, despair, conceit, jealousy, desire, lust, romance, revenge, and so on.

Emotional dramas can become very convincing, very entertaining, to the point where they completely devour the participant...who forgets that he is in fact an actor playing a part, and he will not die in the play nor will he lose his love or his reputation.

Martin Gibson's part in the drama is quite interesting, and often very amusing to me. To some people, it's just bloody annoying. But look at the zest he gives to the part! Amos's part is far more likable by most people's standards. I think they are both playing parts which have considerable merit.

Or was that "Santatee"? A Santatee is an endagered species that, when not frantically spending late December delivering gifts world-wide, swims gently around the Gulf inlets of Florida. Like a walrus without the tusks -- all blubber and no bite.

As I've never seen Amos on Christmas Eve, I'm inclined to believe that he may be a Santatee. Of course, I've never seen him swim either.

I believe that's what I said. . . .

But the individual cells of a jellyfish are not conscious in the same way that we are conscious.

There is only one way that we, on this human level, can accept this kind of "oneness" That is to completely suppress our individual consciousness (and conscience) and obey our leaders. In that way, we can, indeed, become a single unit, like a jellyfish (the consciousness of which is in doubt). But do we really want that?

Golly Gee, Polka Dottie!! Didja hear what Rootie Kazootie said about the pursuit oF Cosmic Oneness? Mebbe you and me should go down to that Krishna temple and get some free food, big boy, and after we can find ourselves a sweet little corner somewhere and grab some of that transcendental nookie, huh? How's about it? I get SO close to being One with All when we ...well, you know...c'mon, c'mon!!!

Seriously, brother Hawk, let me re-word what I yams aying so as not to be misunderstood. When you transcend your current identitiy and find out the fullness of all you are, your self, THEN you can explore the willing union of self with others and with All, because you won't have an ego. But merge as you might, you will still be you. Being you does not mean you have a Terran-type ego at all. The scope of the intermediary ground is mindboggling.

I am not suggesting agreement on everything...I am suggesting goodwill on everything. There will always be differing viewpoints, differing proposals, and differing choices...and that's good! It leads to innovation and advancement.

Peace is established by people of goodwill, and can be maintained despite disagreements, provided one is willing to live and let live.

So, Don, I believe we are actually in agreement on this matter...individuality is indeed a splendidly valuable thing, and should be encouraged.

2 is what you have when you decide to divide the One into 2 observable parts...an arbitrary, but possible decision. If you decide to divide the One into trillions of observable parts, then you have the observable Universe. It's still One Universe.

A jellyfish is one jellyfish, but if you look at it under a microscope you will find that it is many millions of little cells cooperating efficiently together in a common purpose. They cooperate effectively because they are One in consciousness, and they naturally accept that they are One. We would be well advised to do the same, rather than fighting against one another.

One small problem with that. Since everyone on this human level is limited in their perceptions and can rarely grasp the total picture of anything, be it the cosmos as a whole or a political issue, if everyone agreed on everything, stagnation would be the inevitable result and there would be no point in the possession of our unique gift of individual consciousness. It is through the exchange of different viewpoints that knowledge, both individual and collective, advances. To attempt to suppress the expression of any individual's unique viewpoint is to embrace not just ignorance, but evil.

I am an Ancient One and I have read much and I have given a great deal of thought to this matter. Oneness exists in the sense that we are all one with the Cosmos. We are all one in that we are part of Life. One can find manifestations of Unity everywhere. But--on this human level, we are all individual consciousnesses. And this is where we are now supposed to be.

Achieving Oneness, in the sense of attaining Nirvana, is actually to become non-existent.

And we can't have that, can we? No, BS is too valuable to be squandered, heaven knows!

Bill, I am going to quote to you from a book I am presently reading (and it's the best book on the process of developing expanded consciousness and spiritual realization that I have EVER read yet)...

Ahem!

"The problem with the ego is not that it is wrong; it is just that it is limited and distorted. To conceive of the ego as an enemy is to become polarized, bringing forth conflict, guilt, anger, and shame. Positionalities [ideas based on the concept of duality and separation] support the ego. By enlarging context opposites are transcended and problems are dissolved."

The italics, and the part in the brackets were added by me, for emphasis...

Now, I'll give you an example. People in different religions fight over petty points of doctrine, such as whose prophet is the REAL prophet or the best one, whose book is the REAL book or the best one, whether one should eat pork or not, etc...

That's because they are ignoring huge areas they share in common and obsessing over details. They fail to enlarge the context.

I look at religions, and I see a common thread running through all of them, which if seen ends forever the religious quarrels and religious wars. I see the eternal truth in EVERY holy book, every great prophet, and every sacred tradition. I don't care about the minor difference, which have all arisen through the development of unique cultures under different historical conditions.

I enlarge context, and that eliminates conflict and produces brotherhood.

Another example: People look at politics and obsess over the details, by narrowing context again. They blithely ignore the fact that they have far more in common with one another...all the same basic concerns, in fact...and go out and attack one another over petty details, such as...political party alleigances, financial opportunities, national identity, flags, anthems, past grievances, and other superficial nonsense like that.

They have failed to enlarge context to include themselves among ALL humanity. They have sunken into a tribal, utterly parochial and childish consciousness. I see one single humanity, all of whom love their children, seek self-expression and freedom, and want to live a peaceful, happy, productive life free of fear. I enlarge context. No one stands outside my tribal identity, because my trive is the Human Race, and beyond that...the whole biosphere.

Enlarging context is exactly how to produce peace and prosperity on Earth. Narrowing context is how to produce division, fear, cutthroat competition, and destruction.

And thank you Amos for your vocabulary. Other than the 'hypersylabilic/hypersyllabelic/hypersyllabbleic/word with many parts thing', I understood the rest except for "eschew obfuscation" which I think may be illegal in Canada.

So, let me see if I got this right: Everything is undergoing inflation except the blow-up dolls. BILL! TALK TO ME! Is what LH's doing a good thing?

You're so right, Bill! That IS what I do. Most people are far too narrow-minded and literal in their approach to concepts. For instance, they think religion is something that only occurs in churches! Whereas it actually occurs practically EVERYWHERE! And that's just the start...

Dewey is a cool dude in my book.

Sounds like one streetwise guy.

I guarantee that less than 20-25% of all my posts have used any profanity. The ones that have had some major impact.

Thank you!

BTW I did not write the song "I Want To Talk About Me."

Who are we to say somebody is mad just because there are more of us than there is of them, we could still be wrong!
