several new names in my Live Journal box on the
home of page of <http://www.nonduality.com>
these people tend to write about nondual stuff.
i really like the Live Journal concept and format.
everyone has their own style and look.
an email list is like everyone swimming in the
ocean together. Live Journal is like private
cabanas on the beach, where people come and go, and
visit each other.
the site is run by a 21 year old college kid. he
gets up to 60,000 hits a second and often his
servers are down for maintenance. but it's all
worth watching what he's doing. His focus is work
and not soaking his users for money or bothering
them with ads.

I am writing an article "awakening vs
enlightenment". Does anyone feel that these two
terms are/not clearly distinguished in advaita
Which advaita circles are you referring to? There
are several. Sometimes the terms are used
interchangeably, other times a distinction is
drawn. Even the single term "enlightenment" is used
in 15 different ways by any 10 people. One can hear
meanings ranging from relief from neuroses all the
way to the explosive and irreversible experience
that nothing other awareness ever was. All over the
It seems that people talk about 'an awakening', as
though there could many awakenings. 'Enlightenment'
conveys a finality. The terms are interchangeable,
though it seems more likely that someone would
refer to 'an awakening' than they would refer to
'an enlightenment'. However, these are my
impressions and not the result of any scientific

Where then do I apply my protection or, more
generally, aggressive nature? I have fought the

Would you give your life for aWay?

Take your time.
To the JOKES in charge and the COWARDS and
PUPPETEERS that run their asses:
Your persecution and explotation of innocence is
coming to a very dark knight and in 'that end' your
head shall be destroyed, your heart left cold and
incapable of love and your need left right will be
overwhelming... how do I know?
This is the prison in which I was wrongfully placed
as a sacrificed pawn to another's game. I have
fought my way back from there and, in doing so,
have sealed that door forever. How? All those that
enter this place, this space that is my own, my
self in body and mind is the holy temple of the
risen king and it is here that you shall toil
solving my every internal struggle and argument
until I am satafied and at peace. And then,
perhaps, you 'may' be released. Your in... find
your own fucking way out.
If you claim to have the skills to build a 'heaven'
around a single life then it seems that all things
should therefore equal and attainable. If not, then
you have choosen unwisely. But then, it was the 0=1
choice, that tricked you into missing 'what is
warmth' is not what is strategic... ooppsss to you.
Passion creates blind spots. Are you passionate
about power? All the power in the universe is
meaningless (doesn't exist and never did. Power is
a creation of the mind. Now why do you think that
petty men and women can never comprehend God?
Simple eh?) if you don't have the strength to move
The political leaders (especially Bush and Chretian

associates... take your time.>) of this cursed
world... your 'retirement' vs. my future. That is
all that remains to be decided. Nao. Still think
it's a joke? They all-ways do until they get here
to Krishna (not the hare hare kind). As I tell my
boy 'Joel' (Arjuna), it is never going to happen to
you until it does and then it is too late. How
close are you? Look at it this way... there is no
'missle shield' to protect you from the karma that
is headed your direction.
Global revitalization and energy alternative
technologies 'not' the continued desecration of our
sacred mother. All countries that defy this order
shall be held accounatable (and given no chance of
time off for subsequent acts of good behavior)
before my throne and accountable for everything you
do including the burdening of the karma created by
those that you have stricken the masses with
blindness and an eternity of labourous servitude
shall be your lot.
Does it sound like an altimatum? You are right. Or
else what? Exactly. God knows what and ensures that
you will never know.
tewangel -- is it you? Please. Be gentle. We have
waited too long for someone just like you as you
are and with what you bring. Do not hurt us. We can
see that you belong. Sensuality is the sight and
what is needed to get the job done.

The process of 'thinking' is a comparison/negation
of what you do not know as it relates to what you
do know creating a natural erosion of the purity of
