      Glad you omitted the preceding dialogue of the movie. But originally it was Confucius

    I went looking for Him
    And lost myself;
    The drop merged with the Sea –
    Who can find it now?
    Looking and looking for Him
    I lost myself;
    The Sea merged with the drop –
    Who can find it now? - Kabir Das

    I am enjoying this Fred Davis book ... The Book of Undoing ... it is available in Kindle version or in print from Amazon, and probably other places as well. I will be going through it over and over again, and attempting to reduce it to a simple formula for my own use.

      It is like building a house. The house is there from the first nail. But as more and more goes in, it become more present and visible, until you finally walk p with the key and push the door open and it is all there. If only we didn't need to go out from it again...

      How far along are you? Still tearing down the old house? Remember to use the Zikr.

      A good amalgamation of thoughts and experiences..

    OK, I will try another topic that won't get any replies: Music. Does anyone besides me feel that music is often a trance-like experience? I listen to a style called "Trance", so someone must agree with me.

      There is nothing good or bad... until you apply it to yourself with a trowel!

      Duality does exits that breaks harmony. But we never should seek it..

    This links to an article describing rapport sittings that'll do more justice describing them than I have here. http://tatfoundation.org/forum2014-04.htm#1

      This work by Byron Katie begins like the two-person exercise that I described, with one person asking a simple question, the other gives an answer, and the first says thank you, all while looking in their eyes. https://www.youtube.co...­ "The truth behind Addiction" series. I am so glad I never wanted to have children.

      Cool - like rob said a field trip to the beach would be nice sometime. :)

    I vote for a field trip to the Meher Baba center at Myrtle beach. Though any beach is nice.

    April 5, 2014

    • Scott R.

      OK, please describe it? I have heard of Him, I just don't know what the Center is or what we would see/do there. And yes, any beach is nice.

    The idea of meeting more frequently came up. This brings the question of location. I'm pretty sure we are limited to meeting once a month a at the library. Any thoughts? What other days and times are appealing to people?

      We could have Pizza, too. Pizza Hut is next door,but also other restaurants. It is a great area to live.

    The comments seem to have vanished into the ether from which they came.

    April 2, 2014

    • Scott R.

      No, they are attached... to the previous meeting. They just... wouldn't come along. Silly comments!

      April 2, 2014

    Next idea: the consciously known is always after the fact. By the time we come up with a "reason" for doing something, it is already over, or at least the decision has been made. Pirsig said this. So, we "think" that we have all these values, beliefs, ideals, morals, etc... They are pasted on afterwards, not relevant. It is pure invention.
    When we were talking about something like this, I was reminded of the idea that "Dreaming goes on all the time" although consciousness is too "loud" to let us hear it. Start to doze off, and you see it. The "unconscious" is far more conscious than we ourselves are, and knows vastly more. Ask an animal. Or someone painting, or fighting in combat, or dancing, or...

    The inspiration for this group came from a weekly meeting in Raleigh. Some of their meetings are available as mp3s for free at www.selfinquiry.org
