Entangled with your trying make your point all the while trying down play the literal teaching of rebirth in the suttas with this "here and now/One Mind" talk.
Once again thats your perception
of what I am doing
And the "here and now/One Mind" talk." is pretty standard teaching that you find at my local monastery (Amaravati)
That's nice, but it still does not change the fact that literal rebirth, as a teaching of the Buddha, is found in the suttas.
And that is hardly believable given the amount of energy you are pouring into this exchange, trying to defend your position.
But once again thats a perception you have, you dont know my mind state friend
I am not making a comment about your state of mind. I am commenting on what is physically obvious.
[quoteAnd even if I was pouring energy into arguing against you, that just proves my point that view points cause dukkha[/quote]So, you are suffering? I am not. I am rather enjoying this.

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80
