Can a human ever know absolute reality?


Is it possible for an individual to escape the bubble of his own perceptions, beliefs and mental constructs and know universal truth?

    Marvelous insightful comment, Sid.

    'Letting go of the idea of what it means to be human' goes along with Laura's, 'outside of which the human cannot be defined.' It is time also I 'let go' of my aversion to being a follower, and follow your writings

    It does become more challenging as we go farther. But there are ways of remaining connected. Ask your friend to get in touch with me. I might be able to help him rebalance and continue on his journey while improving his ordinary connection.

    ConnorJ - I encourage you to study the latest brain science / meditation mixes, esp. the HeartMath Institute and Joseph Chilton Pierce. Integrate heart-brain, pre-frontal cortex, neocortext, left, right, base, and belly brains, & get connected!

    Even if it assumes there is a bubble, it also assumes there may be a way through or around it. The human *could* be defined outside the beliefs by whatever it is that can go outside, yes? I like your perceptive response.

    No wonder I like soapy showers, jacuzzi baths, and meditation! :) Seriously, though, good metaphor. I'm guessing you've studies the Vedas, or Hindu sources?

    Anyone who claims "I am a saint" is full of ego. Anyone who makes specific predictions of the future is lost in mind games. But that does not mean that there are not genuine saints, full of humility, who know that we are all shining with Divine Light

    Great comment. I look forward to more from you.

    I'm writing a hub on beliefs, perceptions, and the absolute. From my unfolding perspective....

    Are you saying that God created you differently than everyone else--not in his own image, as the Christian bible says he has done? If so, why? And how do you know that you are different and can perceive and comprehend everything?
