    I thought a snake was a rope once. Boy did that teach me the opposite of stillness.

    You know what I mean.

    Not to the ripple that thinks it's separate from the lake.

    Or the wave that thinks it's separate from the ocean and desperately seeks the ocean, not realizing it is part of the ocean, never is separate from it, only in its thinking or belief.

    Anyway...back to Dave TV!

    I know what you meant. I was just splitting semantics. Like unknowing ripples often do.

    Yes, and found that God isn't separate from pure consciousness. The separation, the ego, the sense of the individual is the illusion, and it's tenacious, but once seen through, like seeing that what you thought was a snake...was really a just a rope...it changes everything! I highly recommend deep meditation and stillness. It's like a ripple on a lake...rippling away...feeling separate from the other ripples and the lake...and then it slowing down...til it stops rippling...which is like a death...a death of its feeling separate from the lake...and as it merges with the clear lake...it now knows it's part of something unfathomably larger...it's one with the lake and was never separate...only thought it was...! Astonishing!

    Then it can go back rippling again, but now knowing its true nature as wholeness itself.
    I'm not saying this because I want to steer this thread into one of a religious nature, but what made you choose the path that you did?

    Why not Jesus, or why not Kabbalah?

    (This is not a critique; I simply ask out of interest. If God is universal, then why did you choose the path that you did, as opposed to other paths? Please don't feel compelled to answer; it's just that your positivity is contagious, thus am I interested in your perspective)

    It was only after the shift that I could understand Jesus, and the Kabbalah, the Sufi poets like Rumi, Hafiz and Kabir, and the Taoists, the mystics, the sages, the Buddhists, etc.

    What happened was a mystical experience, some might call it a religious experience, and it was astonishing beyond reason and belief. I couldn't believe anything on faith, needed evidence, and this was direct experience, and it is available to anyone who pursues this like a person whose head is on fire pursues a lake.

    Before this, all the religious texts were locked for me, I couldn't see the one truth they all point to. Now it's just about all I can see. It's like waking up from a dream of separation and death.

    PM me anytime for more, don't want to distract from the VH content

    Not a helluva lot of VH content these days.
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Since the other thread is closed, I'll post this here. EVH is unveiling a headset microphone and killing 2 birds with one stone. It will honor Sam while making sure Dave doesn't have any Mic stand nose accidents in the future.

    My Dad brought over an old box of African curios for my new place... This was at the bottom of the box, and it's extremely flexible/almost moves on its own.

    Yup, I freaking jumped!

    I hear a striped set of parachute pants are in the prototype stage?
    Still need to be road tested, in case Edward doesn't 'go to the bathroom before the show...'.

    Eddie was allegedly just spotted at an In-N-Out Burger in the San Fernando Valley. King Edward patronizing an eatery that shares its name with a song from the Sammy era. Where's No Bozos?

    IDK, a bunch of people say Ed looks like he's gonna have serious health issues then all of a sudden Ed is posting pics, going out on the town....Guess we should say he looks near death more often.
