- Thank you Bob for your insights. You really made me laugh when you said that people maditate in front of the computers... That means that i really meditate all day long.. my brother can barely meditate once a day for a few minutes in front of the computer :)
Well, about the FDG's, i red just a few works of them, as Nisargadatta, Osho, Krishnamurti, Papaji, and come to know some of the living famous guys as Eli and Gangaji Jaxon, Bedri Cetin, Aziz Kristof, Sarlo...

Actually, asking questions in the way that you do is a form of
meditation (Jnana Yoga). It is analagous to the method where you ask
yourself "Who am I"? The best way to learn about meditation is by
meditating. In the 21st Century, millions of people now meditate in
front of their computer screens instead of in front of an alter. When
you start getting responses from such enlightened people as Ganga,
Jeff, Ramon, Judi, Michael, Tony and others, it can be even more
illuminating an experience than worshiping and meditating about the
FDG's (Famous Dead Guys - I think that's the right term, as coined by
Sri Bruceji). Your interactions have opened many doors of wisdom and
are much appreciated. Thanks!
Peace and blessings,

Every second every atom changes as does
every cell and organ that constitutes the
entity that is labeled Bob. Similarly the
thoughts and emotions always are in
a transforming state as long as the
physical carrier is in place. But there is a
continuity that is always constant and
that is the Witness to these changes.
And that is the "Real Bob".
Peace and blessings,
- Very well said Bob dear. But what I hinted at is "If change is
inevitable then why not towards better and better and better......"
Eros and thanatos are constantly acting against each other and by
transformation I meant the "continuity" of extinguishing thanatos
and reinforcing eros and not surrendering to thanatos.
