    If the beloved is everywhere,
    the lover is a veil,

    bet when living itself becomes
    the Friend, lovers disappear.

    You've no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to bring You.
    Nothing seemed right.

    What's the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean.
    Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.
    It's no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.

    So- I've brought you a mirror.
    Look at yourself and remember me.

    [ Rumi ]

    When the heart is hard and parched up, come upon me
    with a shower of mercy.

    When grace is lost from life, come with a burst of song.

    When tumultuous work raisies its din on all sides
    shutting me out from beyond, come to me, my lord of
    silence, with they peace and rest.

    When my beggarly heart is crouched, shut up in a
    corner, break open the door, my king, and come with the
    ceremony of a king.

    When desire blinds the mind with delusion and dust,
    O thou holy one, thou wakeful, come with thy light and
    thy thunder.

    The Advaita Trap 1: Absolute and Relative Confusion - The Cartoon

    I watched this some time ago; quintessence of neo-adwaita;)
    when even radical adwaita, waters down and turns into sophisticated gibberish...
    this neo-adwaitin cartoon character needs one dwaita punch in the face!;)

    Words fail, flying psychopaths etc.
    or
    how I found Pregnant Void through the gaze of the Other:


    must share this, make your own conclusions, but to me it shows the 'pathology' of so called 'spritual' life and psychological investment into Nothing (with addition: I wouldn't put all the spritual paths on this level though, but this looks very bizarre to me):





    video 1 - horror-like...

    video 2 - (31:20): indian guy, reciting his poem ala 'aurobindian' style, but very much zigzag jumbled up; he has potential but it would be better if he read some of the Hegel too, Science of Logic par example and what I see here when he recites, I see his own potential and his own psyche-contents or mental-ideas with which he identifies and finds in them some soothing meaning, but he needs to go around , through Swami G - the tattooed woman, to re-cognise the Divinity;)))

    (23:53) - probably one-sided comment, but nevertheless: it would be better if she had some nice time with her boyfriend than loosing time with this woman-G;)

    (13:30) - university profesor; fu..d by G; his poem shows his great insight into the abstract Absolute, pregnant Void indeed;)..when intellectuals loose sense and shepherds become sheep and vice versa...


    (34:28) - some japanese or asian woman: first words about her G: "I love that you know me better than I know myself!" marvelous bullsh..t!........, now that's a sign of true spirituality...

    comment: the loss of ego in/through the Other; effacement of your own particularity in the spiritual 'fire' of Other's supposed Universality; it's a form of humiliation, but in spiritual terms (I would guess) it is called: Surrender!



    etc....

    just to state one thing clearly for all future posts/it will sound like some formal statement;), but necessary, at least from my own part for all the possible viewers: "I am not advocating nobody when I paste some link from youtube, neither I am U.G-krishnamurtian, nor hindu-adwaitin, nor hyperzealous XY, ok, maybe a 'batawian';)), so, anything you read or watch, coming from my 'pen' or computer mouse, it's your decision/responsibility what are you going to do with it; just to clarify as I don't want to take upon myself no labels of religiousity of any kind - Thank you very much!" ;)))

    Philosophically & psychoanalytically (ok, these 2 labels I can take;),

    Yours,

    Batawe.

    thoughts on: The Desire for Something to Believe In

    "An ethos of concern for others brings out the best in us, encouraging all that is noble, compassionate, selfless and kind in our thoughts and actions. Such an ethos - or 'spirit' - makes us whole (and the religious word 'holy' is simply a derivation of that).
    Those on the side of wholeness may choose to call themselves believers or non-believers but, in terms of practical outcomes does that distinction matter?
    Isn't how we live more important than what we believe?

    It's not that simple, of course, because our desire to have something to believe in fuels our desire not to let go of whatever form of belief we've embraced. But my heart bleeds at the thought that this desire, of all desires, should be the one that breeds so much enmity, strife, conflict and tension."

    Hugh Mackay (Australian social researcher)
    from the book; What Makes us Tick, The Ten Desires that Drive Us

    This one goes out to the man who minds the miracles
    This one goes out the ones in need
    This one goes out the sinner and the cynical
    This ain't about no apology
    This road was paved by the hopeless and the hungry
    This road was paved by the winds of change
    Walking beside the guilty and the innocent
    How will you raise your hand when they call your name?

    Yea, Yea, Yea,
    We Weren’t born to follow
    Come on and get up off your knees

    When life is a bitter pill to swallow
    You gotta hold on to what you believe
    Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
    And that’s a saints and sinners pleas
    We weren’t born to follow
    You gotta stand up for what you believe
    Let me hear you say
    Yea, Yea, Yea, ooooohhh,, Yea

    This ones about anyone who does it differently
    This ones about the one who doesn’t sit and spits
    This ain’t about our living in a fantasy
    This ain’t about giving up or giving in
