Note 1 by The Joshua Letters on January 19th, 2012, 9:53 am
I am posting this as more of a note than a letter. It is my response to a string of comments that I have received that have brought me to realize the necessity of covering one more important aspect on the topic of truth.

Since the time I started actively seeking truth, I have frequently heard, “Truth is relative dependent upon the person who is interpreting and their perception of it”. This is I believe, a misunderstanding that stems out of the goodness of people’s hearts, wanting to avoid confrontation and maintain the peace. It is a misconception so common that it has acquired it’s own catch phrase, “perception is reality”, but I would hope the reader would understand that such is not true… perception of truth does not equal truth. To help make this point let me present an example. For every given person, the question can be asked, “Are they dead or alive”. The truth to this question is generally easy to pin down. However, if the person is dead, the question, “How did they die?” can ...

From Self-hatred to Self-loving by Mossling on August 8th, 2009, 6:11 am
It seems at times in our lives, locked within a capitalist society focussed on personal gain at the expense of others, we can form a perspective that what we are is, at it's core, something bad and rotten; something dark and dangerous to others.

To be accepted in a society, we must be trusted. If we feel our essence is something dark and dangerous, then when we socialise we will have to cover up our dark side due the fear of being ostracized. Selfishness is celebrated privately via capitalism, but it is socially unacceptable as an obvious outward behaviour among friends. Work (private financing) and play (social bonding) are often seen as two different worlds. Work appears to champion our 'bad side', while play appears to champion our 'good side', and so a kind of schizofrenia is created within members of a capitalist society.

It seems we cover up our bad side by calculating and demonstrating to others what ever behaviour we think is necessary for us to be socially accepted. We become...

Everything is so amazing and nobody is happy by BioWizard on May 14th, 2009, 12:08 pm
People are perpetually cranky, and the better and easier things become, the crankier and less satisfied everyone seems to be. I've always liked Louis CK, and I don't think anyone could've said it funnier.

Relaxing in to Automatic Health by Mossling on December 22nd, 2009, 9:44 pm
When we are not relaxed it seems our awareness can be clouded. A mind busied with busy-ness can easily miss profound details. Sometimes this can be comforting: "ignorance is bliss".

At some point, however, people appear to arrive at a place where they have to decide whether their blissful ignorance is the cause of unwanted suffering. If they decide that they need to relax their body and mind, identify the sources of suffering, and seize control of those causes, then it seems they need to find a way to successfully relax regularly and effectively enough in order to become aware of their deeper motivations and make the desired difference to their life become a reality.

Lying down appears to be the best way to relax, but with it most often comes falling asleep, and thus a lack of awareness.

Sitting upright seems to be the next best physical relaxation activity, however the strong support base can again allow the mind to switch off, and sleep creeps upon one.

Standing up follows...
