concept of ‘me’
From: Shekhar Kapur, 30 Jul 2001 09:17:47 EDT To: Piet Hut I agree that all sages have said that we have to know who we are - and unless we break free form the concept of the self and Maya - we are never going to understand the unverse and our relationship to it. And [...]
30th July, from shekhar > I agree with that. Sometimes I have no idea what to write bto you - but just begin - and I sometimes do it at the most panic moments when I have no time to think - or late at night when I am so sleepy. Again - try and [...]

This Moment is not the absence of Past and Present
Date: Fri, 27 Jul 2001, from Piet Hut "There is no begining and no end" And actually no middle either.

And I find it very helpful to approach all this experientially, simply by feeling how this present moment is really [...]
Is Space God ? Piet’s reply.
but we have to go deeply into the question of what BEFORE means if time started with the big bang. I think the answer is that time has more aspects/dimensions than the linear clock-time. I think there is a primorial beyond-time that still has time-llike qualities, in fact may be the REAL time from which [...]
