RE: Episode #63
After listening to this episode I realized that you three are really accomplished speakers. All my umms! Thanks for including me, it really was awesome and such an honor. Sorry I didn't go more into my personal heart-opening experience but I think we hit a lot of good points.

It is not that love will tell you what to do.
It is that love will tell you how to do it with love.

RE: Episode #63
Jim's point about thinking he was pursuing that path of the open heart is really important.  I don't think I did anything to open my heart; like Jim, it happened to me.  Choice enters in when we diligently lay the groundwork for a new balance by feeling emotions deeply, I believe, and kind of showing the heart that it's safe to come out.  One can also create space in the mind for new, fresh thinking to have room.  But the heart emerges in it's own time, I suppose.

I'm glad that Austin and other expanded on the way that irresponsible use of thought hampers our ability to feel.  This is a brand spanking new idea for me in my spiritual journey, so important that it makes the preceding 20 years of seeking feel like I was doing it in black and white.

With respect to Buddhism, I really am a n00b, I should make that clear.  But I think there's something I never understood about the detachment that's so integral to practicing Buddhism.  I used to think that detachment was an overcoming or ignoring of catalyst in order to not let it affect you.  Now I think I totally misunderstood it, and I suspect many have the misconception I had.  From my reading it's much more about letting catalyst affect you directly and completely so that you aren't addicted to the idea that everything needs to be settled, resolved, worked out and tied up with a bow.  You get used to the ambiguity and sometimes up, sometimes down nature of phenomenal, third density reality and don't tie your sense of rightness and wrongness to the whimsy of mood or circumstance.  That is a much truer and human detachment, where we're not detaching from experience but instead detaching from our expectations, our need for experience to always be a certain way, our way.

RE: Episode #63
I think Gary had a much better answer than I did with respect to negative use of intellect and emotions. To be honest, I think my idea that negative folks protect themselves from feeling fully is a kind of anti-concept, because you cannot protect yourself from emotions. You can only control your reaction, so STS entities use thought and will to channel emotional pain to their ends. They don't protect themselves from it per se, they get revenge for it. The best they can do is inflict more emotional suffering on another than they have endured, thus constituting an advantage in their brutal game.

This detachment is a divine sense of humor which will lead you to a knowledge of the oneness of the universe. As you make your errors, so may you laugh and say, “There also am I.” Thus, when you see the same error in others, you may nod and say again, “There also am I.”
