You really need to separate yourself from that dualistic reasoning robot Frank.
It claims it exists and doesn’t exist on both sides of the fence.It can’t make its mind up.
You need to understand and control consciousness or you will remain a prisoner of it.
You are a prisoner of dualistic reasoning (or double mindedness) Frank because you do not control consciousness because you are not even aware that you need to .That is why you are a prisoner of consciousness just like the Buddha was and claimed that the “I” didn’t exist because he only practiced and believed in an out of consciousness synch meditative practice.
Your whole philosophy is based upon dualistic reasoning.
Sorry I’m so longwinded in responding to your post, but I have a few great-grandsons ........
Anyone who actually wants "everlasting life" is just nuts.
I’m not blind guessing Frank.
It’s your philosophy that is basic and amateurish.You have no understanding; grasp or control whatsoever over consciousness and have probably not moved on for years.
Quote:Anyone who actually wants "everlasting life" is just nuts.
Then according to you Frank, I must be nuts.
In the short time span of 86 years, you may have learned all that you want to know, and experienced all that you want to experience, but I look out at the boundless living cosmos and know that if I were to live a billion earth lives, I would still not have experienced all that there is to experience or understand all that is to be understood.
I believe also, that when those who choose the eternal death according to their own free will, and those disembodied spirits see and understand that which they have rejected, then will the weeping and gnashing of teeth be heard among them.
But I guess that you have erroneously GUESSED that YOU the mind that had developed within that body, will die with the body.
Frank does a lot of hoping from the side lines and then ridicules those that hope with him.He just refuses to guess on both sides of the fence because he is double minded.
because he is double minded.
Frank I don’t guess...
...and you don’t guess ultimately.You hope in your stance.
In your case, you hope that not guessing whether there is or isn’t a God will be enough.
......Away from me, you that are under God's curse! Away to the eternal fire which has been prepared for the Devil and his angels!
That Lake burning with fire and sulfur in which the immortals suffer everlasting torment, is the eternal punishment for the unrepentant wicked human spirits, ‘THE SECOND DEATH’ eternal and everlasting death of those minds/spirits from which there is no return: The eternal punishment. Everlasting oblivion.
