I try to sit back and look at things more objectively. This is how I see things right now:
- we are awareness made flesh. with all the senses and limitations associated with being a human flesh creature.
- our bodies are on a 75 year camping trip. We're roughing it with these senses and subject to the ravages of time which normally doesnt affect us.
- in our normal forms, as awareness, we only sense vibrations and "warm" events give us resonant vibrations and harmonies. events other than that cause discordant vibrations and we are repulsed by them.
- when our bodies die we go back to being awareness. That is our only rebirth or afterlife.
- man has the capacity to move beyond rebirth, but it will never happen until the human race is homogenized physically and mentally. this just happens with time.
So I have a definite dispute with the Buddha over the feasibility of working towards an end-goal of Nirvana. Has anyone ascended to date? I believe the true definition is nirvana after death and better lives while alive.
Why is this not a more feasible end result? What is wrong with my reasoning?
