The interview was very interesting. Her view of enlightenment is new, it is very fresh. It takes out much of the mysticism, and it speaks in a modern language.

We live in a world of Samsara (Buddhism) or Maya (Vedic-Hinduism), she calls it the world of belief. In my understanding it is more the conditioned world. When we awaken, we free ourselves from the cultural, social, political, religious conditioning that has been forced upon us. True enlightenment liberates us. She mentions silence, the path of meditation. This path of silence has been at the root of Buddhism, Vedic-Hinduism, J. Krishnamurti, and others.

Sri Rama Mahrshi of Arunachala (1879-1950) used to tell people to concentrate in the question "Who am I?" This is essentially what Byron Katie is promoting. Nevertheless her approach is new and very refreshing.

I enjoyed the interview.

We are Pan Narans Lu. It is stories that make us Human. The place where the falling angel meets the rising ape. Meditation has been proven to suppress auto response in the brain. Hence, a resistance to pain and other distractions.

At the end of The Hogfather DEATH is talking to his adopted granddaughter Susan.

"All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need ... fantasies to make life bearable."
REALLY? (DEATH always speaks in capitals) AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.
"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little - ."
YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.
"So we can believe the big ones?"
YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY THAT SORT OF THING.
"They're not the same at all!"
YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET - Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THER IS SOME . . . SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.
"Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point - ."
MY POINT EXACTLY.

I think that I want to enjoy my Ignorance, my Nothingness. I will sit by the sidelines and watch the world fight over their concepts as they say, "Only my watch gives the right time."

Your religion is your way of finding what is true.

We might find out that truth is something so simple that we are breathing it ever day.

:clap:

Totally agree.

I am now in my 54th year of my temporary role as Lenny and have dropped all my beliefs. My 'religion' is thus: To Live From The Heart.

I do like to discuss reincarnation and UFO's etc - but I don't nail myself onto what I discuss. I am open minded and love disappearing down multiple rabbit holes!

I have come across Rupert Spira, who is worth a listen!

Still love Byron too!
