Re: What do you do when you reach an end to you search for knowledge?
this i would like to discuss. i have that thing too and i think we are far from truth. if only someone would confirm the fact that invisible weight exists and we actively participate in it.. so that some of us really carry in ourselves bigger weight then others. dont you think this view is narcistic and nothing but that? are we stupid and ignorant for believing in that? isnt it just a way to boost our ego and feel more worthy/important then others?

again i would like to bring this to a 'lower' level. this is a feeling of your own value, of your complexity and greatness and i think its something worth cherishing and expanding. so you are already there and dont owe anything to anyone.
this is probably closest to amazement i was talking about (in this case amazement with your mind and wholeness).

the thing i lack to understand the most is the fact you do have ideas and plans but dont have willingness to do them. are you sure you are confident in your ideas enough. are they just seeds of ideas or fully formed ones? do you review on them with fear that they are not good enough?

My ideas are formed and matured. You're right that my sense of greatness and altruism is probably linked to egotism, but you have to concede that some of the most important men in history had huge egos. I do not have a problem with insecurity. In fact I may suffer of what some people call an 'excessive self-esteem' which can be as bad as lack of self-esteem. What I know is that obviously I'm lacking balance in some aspect of my being.

I think every man has the potential and the possibility to become great, but few get to live it. I do not feel that I'm better than any other man on this because I've yet to live my potential as well.

The difference from one man to another is simply a matter of resources. I've worked hard and so I was given keys in the form of extraordinary knowledge. I possess certain keys that most people don't, so it's my duty to do something useful with them for the betterment of mankind, or at least for the betterment of the people I care and love.

Others around the world may have been given keys as well -- I don't know.

My problem is of a very simple nature: When I start moving the key towards the lock to open the door, my hand paralyzes. Fear? It could be, but I don't what type of.

Sounds like having a child would change your perspective since love is said to be greater then knowledge. I didn't see you mention having kids so im guessing you don't have any.

I long for the day i have my own child. feels like the only thing that would bring inspiration back into my life.

And I would like to add that this key, I believe, is 'patience'.

As they say: "Patience is key"

But my patience is dwindling

Started already, then stopped. Have some unfinished written works on the Internet that are only a fragment of what I have saved on my PC as drafts (and many posts on this forum). But no motivation to publish, hence my affliction.

But... I don't want to turn this thread into self-promotion. Let's try to keep focus on the question rather than the person. Although you could be right -> opening myself more could lead to a better chance of getting help. I'll think about it.

I think I get your disinterest in self-promotion. There is enough of that going around already. Frankly, you don't seem like you need help. You just seem somewhat bored?

This is kind of trite, but maybe trying out some new interests or further developing some old interests might help to keep your mind engaged until inspiration comes along.

Creativity can be fun, building mechanical things, electronics, computer programming, farming or gardening, learning to surf, trolling bullies, etc

Music is amazing, playing guitar, drums, piano, singing.. fun and enriching.

If you're feeling altruistic, rescue animals. Help homeless people.

What must GOD do to stay entertained once he's beaten his own game of hide and seek?

I am with you and seeking the answer as well.

Re: What do you do when you reach an end to you search for knowledge?
Find a wife/partner and have kids, worked for me, having kids gives one the responsibility of being a father/mother a challange all in its own, it also balances between the mantal/spiritual realms, and the realms of reality, keeping one grounded to a degree. Also the burden is shared in part, in that communication between the family relationships, helps a great deal.

Between there is always something new to learn, there is no end to the search for knowledge, there is always a higher level, a greater light.

love and light

Re: What do you do when you reach an end to you search for knowledge?
Op, I like this thread!

some ideas:

1. The human condition is ever-moving and progressing. All the things that compose us are an endless chain of reactions, popping, buzzing, moving, and changing!

2. What about the beautiful gift of creation we have? I mean, our ability to imagine and then create. I know you mentioned that you write, that's good, but if possible add art and music to the mix.

3. Start singing more. It might sound like elementary/stupid advice, but the power of creation in relation to our vocal chords is a very magical and life-affirming experience, especially when you get good at singing if you aren't already. When you really let go and let your voice out all the way, well, I really don't know of anything that feels better.

4. Ignore knowledge, and cultivate your wisdom, this to me is a never-ending journey. I stopped caring about knowledge a few years ago, but the wisdom always grows. And self-discipline too (which I imagine is also ever-changing and requires different methods for different stages of our lives)

5. I have watched my father go through the experience you've described, and if I told him any of this he wold lovingly tell me to fuck-off because he is well over this human experience. Oh well, hopefully this inspires somethin positive!
This is all a joke!!
