To me it just sounds like a great exaggeration of life. I mean plenty of people lead long and full lives without giving up craving so I don’t see their shortcoming part. I know I want things and sometimes I get it and sometimes I don’t, but if I wanted nothing then I wouldn’t do anything. Not to mention that I don’t think anything is unconditioned (even if they think so) except maybe the beginning of the universeJuly 19, 2019 at 9:10 pm #303825
Whats a full life?July 20, 2019 at 1:09 pm #303838
You are missing the point, it’s more like saying wanting things and liking things is bad because it makes you a prisoner.July 20, 2019 at 3:34 pm #303840
Excuse me. What is a full life??July 20, 2019 at 8:44 pm #303848Citizenschallenge-v.3Participant
I’m hungry, lets eat.July 21, 2019 at 12:44 am #303850
Like I said you are missing the point being made, did you even read the link?July 21, 2019 at 9:15 pm #303872
Xain, one thing you should have been taught in school is to read what you have written before you finalise
“. I mean plenty of people lead long and full lives without giving up craving ”
So i am challenging you to expand on this and explain what you mean by full lifeJuly 22, 2019 at 12:36 am #303878
I guess what people would deem to be satisfactory.July 22, 2019 at 12:37 am #303879July 22, 2019 at 3:53 pm #303908
I don’t know, but this has nothing to do with the article or the point being made.July 22, 2019 at 4:47 pm #303913
So you say you dont know what you are talking about.
Good on you for being honestJuly 22, 2019 at 8:47 pm #303916
I do know what I’m saying but no one is addressing it. You guys just keep asking irrelevant questions.
As she is saying, where do the thoughts come from? What about our desires? Can we truly say they are us if we don’t have control over them? What about our thoughts?July 22, 2019 at 11:45 pm #303922
Youre the one that said you dont know in trying to justify an assertion you made with regards to full lifes and cravings.July 25, 2019 at 2:10 pm #304046
I just said I did and I posted a link in regards to it, it’s not my fault if people aren’t engaging the topic or that they can’t.July 25, 2019 at 8:57 pm #304070LaustenKeymaster
I tried to read the whole thing but it became just a string of words pretty quick. It assumes we know what is meant by “conditioned mind” and tries to say you can get to the unconditioned mind, but then warns you other mind things will make you think you are there, but you’re really not. This was supposed to be some important revelation:
“If there is a point or a center of the knower anywhere, that is an agent of birth.” That’s what it said.
but it’s not. I can’t find anything meaningful or even coherent in that. What is this website? How do they decide who gets published on it?
