A hint of but different: surprise

True love is most excellent and especially love of self, for only in loving oneself completely and unconditionally can one one truly love another in an uncluttered way. This is the doorway to knowing one’s complete self … the slightest resistance to loving oneself in any way becomes an ink blot that spreads and covers a whole quadrant of one’s awareness.
Maybe move it somewhere else – you have missed the point!  I like the heartthought, but context is everything & love is undefinable – almost a sleevejob – worshipped by poets, touted by religionists & Newagies  & the people at Contrived Platitudes & singers & said in one way or another to people we meet.
No 2 people have the same definition or experience of whatever it is.  Somewhere I have Werner Erhards def which is similar to a sleevejob – ontologically  [sic] I mean what you mean when you say the words “I love you” – (reflective & empty & meaningless!) – niceness! loving it

Nathan, that sounds like your peculiar kind of “love”.   I would hesitate  to generalize it to others. 
 
nathan 2016-04-12 03:57:51 [item 20781#51084]
I would hesitate to qualify love and put it in a box. In fact, I defiantly would not. If love in your world is thus qualified, then it is not love. It is only a trunk or a leg or a tail, not the elephant. 

Yep still at it folks – this thought is NO LONGER about Being of Beings Being.
                                                - cool

..
Lots of people talk about undefinable words, & bandy them about & pretend they point to something from sublime to the ridiculous – one of my favorite ones is unbornedness – perhaps the ultimate that can’t be put inside a box. Zen is full of them. Nirvana being just one of the top of my head. Kindly make a new thought about it somewhere else. heart BTW, the most amusing, illusive word, like love, is sleevejob.laughing

You can always tell now when Mark is making a drive by statement that even he knows in his heart is not a spoken truth. He invariably terminates those threads. When there is truth in what he says, he leaves them open for comment. pondering
Nate’s RWG shit!

Mark de LA says
nathan 2016-04-12 09:04:18 [item 20781#51093]
Don’t take my word for it … no RWG required. Simply look and feel. You’ll notice how the threads Mark terminates, like that last one about RWG, don’t ring true. And how the one’s he doesn’t have that true feeling to them. It’s as plain as the text in the FBI posts … my opinion not required.  
I finally found the appropriate group for this shit! smuglaughing

well when mark made this dialog independent of his excellent focus, … me, i got a little twinge of heart given, and heart received.  ← just an example of what we are talking about … this thingy happening in the wilds as it were. 
Mr. Wallaby 2016-04-12 09:58:14 [item 20781#51097]

of course, group pellick is your closed group … oh sure the dialogue can continue in the thought … but some may cop an aug re the context you have composed here.  Context being King … this is a peculiar kind of context given to us,  very much dripping with an unconditional love of mark’s expression.   Now, i understand, and i have no such aug with speaking my mind re a deep dimension of my soul even within this context.  But that is just me.   we see what happens else wise ...
Mr. Wallaby 2016-04-12 11:12:28 [item 20781#51101]
So what? What can’t you do that you want to do in the way of commenting & editing?  I could request making it open, but then what.  Pellick is a very characteristic designation. ! smug
Seth 2016-04-12 11:18:39 [item 20781#51102]
well like i said (or thought i implied) that *I* don’t have a problem with the context of the group or even the context in the thought the dialogued was projected into … it is so very mark … which i accept … almost unconditionally.   “So what?” for me = so no problem.  Else wise, we will see …

Yep, “love” is just a 4 lettered English word which does not necessarily point to the same thing in each of us.  It is touted as the “highest” human emotion … ok, i can go with that … but the “highest” emotion that i have does not depend on me being its object as Nathan described about his highest emotion.  That is not me putting “love” in a box … just me recognizing that it is something different in each of us.   How could it be otherwise since in that deepest dimension, we are each of us so very unique and free to be defined by ourselves. 

I recognize something that i call “love”, which does not have the characteristics that Nathan says about what he calls “love”.   ← that is all i am saying.
nathan 2016-04-12 08:56:08 [item 20781#51090]
Actually, love is one of the few words which does point to the same thing in all beings … it is only that most humans have drawn artificial boxes around it. Most things humans experience are their own creation of it, love is not. Love is a universal aspect of reality itself, like The Law of Attraction, and the temperature absolute zero, and the speed of light. There is one aspect of love that once you frame love that way, you will undeniably agree it is truth. Most subjects we can talk about would not be that way. The above statement I made is only a contextual twinkle of it of course.
Seth 2016-04-12 09:10:44 [item 20781#51095]
except then *i* do not love, because my loving does not require “loving myself completely and unconditionally” … my love of others is independent of my love of myself.  So you have cast me out of what in your story is called “love”.   Do you see a problem with that story? 
nathan 2016-04-12 11:51:16 [item 20781#51104]
What I see is that you have not come to the place where you feel how loving others IS loving yourself. People start out in a place where those seem separate. Eventually people reach a place where they no longer are separate. Once taken, that journey arrives at the same place for anyone who does take it. It is simply what I see from the perspective I have shifted to. I don’t see it or myself as better than you in any way. I am simply standing here and looking and you are standing there and looking and I tell you truthfully what I see, just as you tell it truthful what you see.
What I see is that you have not come to the place where you agree with N & he is going to repeat himself over & over till you do. cool

okay … all true … and quite symetic, you standing there , me standing here.  

thing is me,  i have this love of the specific … a love which kind of precludes the same relationship to myself  being to another.    oh sure its qualia could feel the same … as in-you, you say “it does” … but in-me the two kinds of relationships are  not at all connected by necessity, they happen independently and do not even feel the same.  So your prediction that “the journey arrives at the same place” might just be based upon a presumed generalization ,which me thinks does not, and probably never will, generalize to me.  ← you might wonder what you get out of claiming that it will.

Mark’s drive by selfies are making this an uninteresting conversation. I have no desire to speak around them today. If you want to continue this in a more private venue that would be okay … and not is okay too if you wish.  
Mr. Wallaby 2016-04-12 12:48:21 [item 20781#51109]
e.g. what happens when N doesn’t get a reflection of himself in conversations! thumbs uplaughing

Maybe it is just tiresome and uses up energy I would rather put in places that replenish me instead.

laughing … good play … kudos …. er, wait a moment …. an aug context trumps a love context? ← is that seriously fucked or am I ?
Depends if you like pellick or not.  Some like haggis, bolutes & Surstromming & munging! It is a matter of taste! laughing

Graffiti is not only what or who, but where. V13 use to write their names on the back of Walgrove & on their side fence.  I am fairly sure they were authentically expressing who they are (asssholes!) 
Artistic - Graffiti  - Trippy - Psychedelic - Urban - Urban Art Wallpaperlaughing
nathan 2016-04-12 14:59:30 [item 20781#51127]
That looks to me like an ugly bunch of concrete transformed into a beautiful expression of human creativity. I’m not sure what your problem is.
Mr. Wallaby 2016-04-12 15:14:53 [item 20781#51129]
I have no care about who is counting words or last ones. I was hoping to have more dialog about the importance of allowing creativity and expression to blossom instead of choking it with attempted laws and traditions and right of property. Even Steiner was against ownership of property both for economic and social health reasons.

I have been in the back alleys around Walgrove. Any artistic expression in them would have been an improvement and benefit to all. It would have allowed children and gangs an outlet for their many creative desires which are suppressed by traditional society. Vandalism is intent to do harm, to get back at the system, to gain some measure of power in a system where every whim and desire is being suppressed and resisted. Graffiti is not always vandalism and quite often can be amazing art. People should be allowed to follow their excitement. If they were, a harmonious balance would soon be reached that would benefit all. It takes a lot of repression to keep the natural order of harmony out of kilter.
