  1. Do you think GSmaster has screw loose?

    Leave. Quit. What is the actual difference? And who cares? Why are you guys so fixated on each other? It's almost like you've become favorite playthings to each other. Most curious given the clear disdain... I stepped in dog poop once when I was a kid. I cleaned it off my boot, and went back to exploring what interested me.
  2. Curious. Wouldn't taking refuge under the guru, any guru, be for those uncertain or feeling shaky with their connection to their own inner refuge? And as such, isn't it meant to be a means of recognizing and stabilizing one's own (inner) connection, temporarily projected into the form of another? Further rendering whatever is experienced as refuge in another the manifestation of a "not yet matured" (for lack of a better way to phrase it, and certainly not meant in a derisive manner) mind?
  3. This (in a general sense) is something I've found rather fascinating here - the dynamics of how seriously and personally opinions are/can be taken. Watching the dynamics play out in myself and others has certainly been part of my personal exploration and path.
  4. The biggest secret about Advaita Vedanta

    Good start. I was not telling you what you can or cannot write. I was making a suggestion regarding how to more easily avoid what you seem to wish to avoid. If you could say the same thing with different terminology which wouldn't lead to what is presently arising here, why wouldn't you? (Unless it doesn't actually mean the same thing? At this point I honestly don't know, and this all seems a bit surreal to me.) For better or worse, certain phrases develop certain associations. When we are aware of the associations we may be more able to convey what we actually wish to convey. Which isn't actually about approval or disapproval, but the development of skill imo. This is good. If my posts bother you, then it is your right to put me on ignore if you wish. But much like the stand you are attempting to make, I will continue to respond and share where and how I wish. Take care.
  5. The biggest secret about Advaita Vedanta

    Yeah, poor martyred Jeff. Honestly, this could easily be avoided by using traditional terminology - which is exactly the point I'm attempting to make, and you seem unable to see. Don't want a "Jeff whupping post" don't use the language which brings it about. Easy Peasy.
  6. The biggest secret about Advaita Vedanta

    Because Jeff has behaved like a creeper, and it is odd to me someone would want to be associated with such. YMMV And I wasn't suggesting change of what works for you, but appropriate language if you didn't want your sharing to bring to mind the Cult of Jeff with others here. If it is legitimately called other things then what would be the harm of using that terminology instead? When clearly there would be benefit in avoiding the Jeff rabbit hole?
  7. The biggest secret about Advaita Vedanta

    Perhaps you would consider using the terminology found within the traditions you mention then, instead of a Jeffism which is bound to raise eyebrows for now obvious reasons?

    And don't forget copious amounts of man juice to mark their women, and throw them into a tizzy at the defilement of their property! Hi ho and cheerio, we'll win at all costs! Even if we make ourselves look as bad as, or worse than, the invaders.
  9. TDB Infested by imbeciles. Beware.

    So let's defend what we value by shitting in our own gardens, and pissing on everything. Brilliant tactic! They won't know what to do, or even which piles of shit are their own!

    Hi gatito, I didn't write the codes, although I find them interesting. For example, although you may find yourself more aligned with the Jedi code, clearly there is an aspect of it you disagree with. More interesting than the codes to me though, is the Rule of Two, and how it came to be - owing predominantly to the Sith weakening themselves in the eyes of Darth Bane with Jedi ideals of equality. And how this rule of two equates with the way there was once one master passing his knowledge to one worthy student in some lineages, and how we can presently see a plethora of watered down (weakened) teachings passing through those who feel they deserve whatever it is they feel they deserve simply by being born, and asking or claiming what they may not even understand. There is a precariousness and potential for loss (of knowledge, skill and the value of any teachings - not to mention the teachings themselves) in both paradigms imo.

    Oh, in the region of the US I spent most of my life in, when used in such a manner it simply meant the people you were speaking to. And "hey guys, check this out" could actually be spoken to a group consisting entirely of females. But thanks for your watchfulness..

    And in juxtaposition of the above Sith Code, I'll present the following Jedi Code: There is no emotion, there is peace. There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. There is no passion, there is serenity. There is no chaos, there is harmony. There is no death, there is the Force.
  13. TDB Infested by imbeciles. Beware.

    Peace is a lie. There is only Passion. Through Passion I gain Strength. Through Strength I gain Power. Through Power I gain Victory. Through Victory my chains are Broken. The Force shall free me. : forgive my geek moment guys :

    Thought you were posting about being Jedi with star; now your claim is Sith? You playing Reven here?
  15. TDB Infested by imbeciles. Beware.

    A blinding exuberant glee at the ability to insult without fear of repercussion? (i.e. he didn't realize (in his exuberance) it was you he was responding to and not gs)
