  • This isn't even the stupidest thing Limbaugh has...

    This isn't even the stupidest thing Limbaugh has said. Here are the options:

    1) He's that dumb.
    2) He's catering to an audience which is that dumb.

    Either way, it's not good.

    You're...joking though, right?

    Or, maybe poor people would be able to actually buy things they need rather than the government subsidizing them via welfare programs like food stamps. Maybe instead...

    Do desires change? Are your desires independent of your larger context? That's all Buddhist no-self refers to...

    Again, it's not that there can't be some existence of these experiences, it's just...

    But why? Again, it's not that you are supposed to cut yourself off from your memories or experiences or beliefs or what have you; it's simply how you view those things. Are those reflective of a core...

    I've heard of it referenced but differently from what your experience was as you described it. More just eradicating the idea that people are stable "selves." We are continuing processes, not...
  • But again, I'm not sure your experience is what...

    But again, I'm not sure your experience is what Buddhism seeks. Don't rely on the fact that "ego death" sounds similar to "no-self." Buddhism demands that people be in touch with their experiences,...

    No-self is a specific Buddhist concept. They might sound similar, but they may entail different processes. All that no-self suggests is that you are merely a wave in an ocean. To call the wave as...

    Okay so I don't know if that's the same as no-self...

    I don't know if ego death is inherently the epitome of non-attachment? Is "ego death" the same as no/not-self?
  • Agreed, but I don't know if he was talking about...

    Agreed, but I don't know if he was talking about Buddhism so much as this "ego death" concept.

    Most sects don't really though? I mean I don't deny some may, but most aren't particularly weird or out there. Maybe philosophically, but not fairytale in the sense of being non-scientific or...

    But see that is attachment.



    I'm not sure how exposure = attachment to the self?

    I still don't know if I follow where the confusion comes from, though.

    Yeah, no it's not.

    I don't know if understand what you are confused about, then?

    Buddhists wouldn't say love is the source of suffering; they would say attachment to love is the source of the suffering (in this case).

    Why do people who are isolated suffer? This might give you...

    The problem is he will bring up things against HRC that Bernie did not, and his anti-establishment/GOP crowd will respond very favorably to that.
