Time based spirituality

#1
Something akin to Taoism I think. Taoism in fact had no concept of time as we know it. It was all about this dynamic flowing of reality. No beginning and no ending. No separation between mind and world. The eternal 1 second per second flow of all experience everywhere in all directions. I sat in my dark silent apartment last night getting in touch with this intuition of the bare passage of moments. Smooth, pure, current at the bottom of all that is, washing away all knots and clots of negativity and fixation. The realist and oldest thing we can get in touch with. The smooth and steady flowing thru of time thru everything. Eventless, thingless, thoughtless transition now into now into now into now. Simultaneous filling and emptying of all from nothing into nothing. This movement manifesting in a million forms. The peace I attained after an hour of this meditation was healing and palpable. I went to bed with a new and soothing trust in the true nature of existence.

You're the one trying to denigrate. That's your petty obsession.

So you don't think spirituality should have anything to do with actions?

What does noting the bitching and whining of a person have to with time based spirituality? I'm not allowed to do that?

Well, you'd have to provide your definition of a spirituality that has zero impact on actions before we can even start to probe your claim of a time-based one. Really sounds like you're just conflating spirituality with simple meditation.

You didn't say "bitching", you called her a "bitch". I often don't get alone with her, but I've never called her a bitch. Just like I've never called you any epithets for homosexual. That's because I judge people on their actions, not their identities. Since you seem to be a dyed in the wool identitarian, your conception of spirituality is devoid of action and you judge people on their identities.

Where did I call her a bitch? Quote it. Nevermind. Here it is:

"Bitch and whine baby. You're part of the Syne club now."

Egads! Let’s just hope that wasn’t a Freudian slip. Big Grin
