Anyone out there who longs for what's real (& isn't sure what real is)... not simply for information, not for opinions, not staying within the 'known', nor within the unknown (which is the known also). I keep checking back every few months in hopes of finding signs of intelligent life... maybe even a slightly heightened state of life... one that isn't so interested, like a mating male bird, in showing its feathers. .... in hopes of finding an org I can put my support behind. (I'm not putting myself above anyone...cuz I'm not what I'd call intelligent life either. But, I genuinely want to explore uncharted waters with similarly motivated people.)
Looking at the Discussions, the offerings of Workshops, Seminars, Retreats... I am finding little else (a few exceptions) than what people think they 'know' and want to bestow on others for some money. How ridiculous this seems to me in an ostensibly learned society that claims high ground as search for truth. Why are there no gatherings to explore, to develop important questions, to take on the impediments to learning... examining the caged beast, reality, spiritual-science connection, God, consciousness, affection, humor...
Perhaps it is not known how to seek the truth, how to be tentative, how to inquire actually. Perhaps it is not know how to lay aside one's subjective self, to peek at one's conditioning or bias... to see without colored glasses. Has anyone considered that teaching may be more for the teacher to learn than the student... or that teaching without hierarchy may engage or stimulate one's curiosity, but not against a backdrop of image and authority.
Someone will undoubtedly dissect this post to point out my contradictions, inconsistencies, mistaken premises, etc.... & become my perfect example.
