Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Never have been, and that's the great part. We don't have to pretend to be 'real' or 'act' in any certain way. We are all different but closely related aspects of varying vibrations of energy. Everything that I have experienced outside myself has changed, evolved or dissipated. Was it real then, is it real now? The question might be, am I real as in my definition of real, and how does that affect the big picture for me? Love you Gradient.

Where is the basis for the belief held then? How can you feel appreciation, scorn, adoration, deceit.....any of those things without a fixed ethical compass.

Ditto.
 Quoting: Gradient


Okay. Examples: Catholicism used to be real to me because I believed in it. Then I evolved, through experience as well as education, and found it was not real and my belief fizzled in the wind. My belief in it made it real to me. All the teachings held power over me because of my belief. Nothing was real about it, except what my mind created. One day I walked away from it and there was no physical change, no mental anguish. I just didn't believe anymore. Same with a couple relationships I had. I believed I was in love with this man or that. It felt real in the moment. However now I know--from experience--that it was a good relationship based on strong emotional attachment or connection. So now I know, rather than merely believe, I was in caring relationships until I found one that was beyond all that.

Experiences are constantly different as we become more aware. I have found it to be impossible to hold any prior standard to the relevancy of my current situation. I used to judge and blame others when my ego was offended. And sometimes I still slip into that. But from experience--and awareness--I find the unique quality of each moment and lend the benefit of the doubt to the learning curve of the experiencer, whether that be me or someone else.

This is a big topic. I like it.

There is an old western saying; There are three kinds of people in everyone; The one we pretend to be, the one we want to be, and the one we are.

Playing devil's advocate here, but isn't believing, innocently as it may be, that you are evolved beyond another's way of belief and thinking an issue of ego as well? Even if it is passive?

I'm a fictional character creation, of my own imagination.

Does that count?

Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Trust is a character issue. I think some are actually born with honorable characters and some learn honor. But if honor and ethics are no longer being "enforced on the youth" it will only get worse as this ball keeps spinning. No one is teaching them by example anymore. And each generations hypocrisy gets worse amongst its elders.

Try keeping Infinity together without tearing the finite apart. Were you there when the waters were measured?

Ironically, I'm one of the most trustworthy people you could ever hope to meet, and yet I'm labeled on this board as a notortious shill. There ain't no justice.

Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Throwing out a Saturday morning topic.....


Why is it that it seems everyone these days is always someone else? It seems that there is an underlying motive or personality that always rears in the times when doors are finally being opened.

Are the days of the handshake deal really gone? If not, where are these people that mean what they say and say what they mean?

Trust, to humanities detriment, has become a multifaceted term that at one time meant something. Something that was attached to a length of time. These days, it's 'trust while convenient'. Don't hand out something whole, unless you are ready to get it back in jagged pieces, tied to mendacious reasoning.

"Let's make a deal", "I'll pay you back", "I mean what I say"


Why is this getting so bad?

in any upper middle class housing area, at least one of the couple living in any house is a deceptive piece of shit psychopath. few if any exceptions to that. and if that's how it is at the upper middle class level, imagine what it's like in the ultra rich circles. blood drinking satanists doesn't sound to outlandish anymore

Could almost SWEAR (almost- wouldn't BET ON IT- no, no- BUT ALMOST) I've "seen it" before.....on......some......other........proto-forum...

Bah- whatever. I'm probably imagining things. The internet's a big place, very cavernous with many exits and entrances, gateways and keys....

Either way, it's cache money, I'll give you that.
