These experiences I’m telling you about are MY daily experiences of beingness.

If there were a my to experience it. I go to work. The namarupa and beingness are experienced on one level. I come home and transcend.

Ok, it is not a state; and in what way something that is not a state can
be shallow or deep?

If you knew it very well and it's an experiential understanding,
it would be possible to somehow express in your own words,
not samadhi or rupa or Elena.

Could you try that? In a most mundane word possible,
which can be understood by a 5-year-old child?

I already have. Ad infinitum. It is beingness. The absolute. Life. It is the way of being. Stop asking me to repeat myself. I’m getting weary of this game.

I am not here to make beingness accessible to five year olds. They already have it. I am free to use words like namarupa. My PhD is in philosophy and religion. Sanskrit has a profound meaning to me. I’m not throwing it around like new age Minho jumbo.

Hi Sxcotticus. :) Could you look at your own feeling now?
Do you notice some a kind defense against what I ask you to do?

Please be honest in your answers.

Warmly,

Bananafish

Is this "I" that has a PhD and to whom Sanskrit matters important for you?

Simply, we feel as though you are being obnoxious and condescending and that the same question has been adequately addressed many times.
This is the case: There is, what we shall call, fundamental consciousness. One fundamental consciousness happening without end, without border, without regard for time, or space. This is all. It unfolds forever. We are it. It is us. Our experience within it may fluctuate. But never are we separate from this, never CAN WE BE. It is an impossibility.

Sorry for repeating myself, but repetition here means
that it is of utmost importance to inquire into it, and also that
it isn't still fully inquired into. So again ...

Please directly answer in either yes or no to these questions. Just one word, please.


Warm regards,

Bananafish

Ok. :)

Please describe what you know about namarupa and samadhi,
deepness and shallowness ... all what you wrote,
in words that could be understood by five year olds.

Okay.
The namarupa is the everyday world that we deal with, things which exist that have name, shape, and forms. Things that you can touch and feel. They are of course, composed of the absolute consciousness but are grosser, or heavier, bigger, less refined parts of that fundamental consciousness. Here, one will always also be apt to experience more of an array of emotions.

When one goes into a meditative state, which can be called samadhi, there are many other terms other people may refer to it, one goes deeper than this heavier, gross realm of the namarupa. One goes into the more refined, subtle levels of the fundamental consciousness. The lighter, more fluid levels. These are deeper. Here, things with names and forms, things that can be touched and picked up, don’t necessarily exist, but this state of being in consciousness is still very real. Here, one is more likely to have less of an array of emotion.

Oh boy, it would be a very clever kid to understand that!
I will try to pretend that I were a 5 year old and ask questions, ok?


What is fundamental consciousness?

What is meditative state?

What is subtle levels of the fundamental consciousness?

What is fluid levels?

What is a state of being in consciousness?
