Can we trust chat gpt with this? 😅

 

I’m not even sure what an emotion is honestly.  I see emotions as generated by the mind as a kind of thought.  So, I don't really see emotions as entirely different than thoughts.  if you look at the list of 200 emotions ChatGPT generated, a lot of those appear to be packed with thought in one way or another.  They're distinctions pertaining to feeling, but distinctions nonetheless.  To me there's really two emotions: pleasure and pain, and both are of the mind and of the body.  I don't really deal in carving up emotions finely.  Emotions for me are part of the illusion, part of Maya, just as thoughts are.  "When Turiya is realised as the Self, it leads to the cessation of craving for the non-Self." -- Adi Shankara, Commentary on Gaudapada Karika

Why are you looking for one? To understand your own emotions better or? If that's the case would it be more effective to really look at your own emotions and really discover how they truly FEEL in your own body? Where in your body do you feel them? Is there energy? How does that feel? Is there tingling, hotness, pressure? What kind of sensations are they? How close to them can you lean? What happens when you truly acknowledge them and lean into them?

Feeling emotions is “another level”, yet not higher, prior. How thoughts feel, as opposed to generated by thoughts, including the thought mind or thoughts about mind. It’s more about resonance between thought and feeling, relative to what’s actually wanted. This could be said to require some self-honesty regarding what’s wanted, yet not to any extent it’s a doing or an efforting.  

 

GPT is initially not a reliable ‘source’. If one is surface ‘level’ input wise, GPT is surface level output wise. It can certainly be used for egocentric gratification, essentially validation of circular mental masturbation. For example, were you to type in, “now remove any which are really just purely conceptual”, it would. Or, “remove any which are on behalf of an illusory sep self”. It will. Or even, “Remove any which aren’t really guidance, or informative in terms of aligning thought with feeling, and, it will. If you ask, “what emotions are actually guidance, which you neglected to list” - it will tell you. More significantly, a request such as, “most relevantly - what I want is x, and an emotion I seem to be experiencing is y - help me receive the guidance to align”… it totally will. One great inquiry might be, “is consciously creating, as awakened consciousness, even ‘a thing’ so to speak at all? Compared to desires & cravings, which are on behalf of a sep self?”

Got it.  I'm not sure thoughts and feelings are separate.  But what is wanted and by whom?  I don't have a separate self.  I don't think reality can be manipulated in such a way.  What is being Witnessed just is Good, and I don't have the free will to change anything.  I'm well aware of all the self-help stuff to try and change the dream within the dream too.  But that just leads to attachment of the separate self and to Maya (the illusion of a doer in control of his or her happiness).  I'm at Underlying Unchanging Peace (Turiya)/Bliss notwithstanding changing states of emotion or changing states of thinking.

‘Twisting’, which is deflection & projection, is an obvious sign of emotional suppression & spiritual bypassing, and is not indicative of self-realization.

 

 

These questions, like all prior questions approaching the topic of emotions being acknowledged & felt will not be answered. Nonetheless, the moment is ever-anew with the possibility of self-honesty:

 

Does it seem like what’s being said is thought and feeling are separate, or, again in all self-honesty, is that a misinterpretation of what’s being said? 

 

Does it seem like what’s being said is feeling is plural, such as feelings? 

 

Or that there is a separate self, separate of reality, which even could, let alone should manipulate reality?

 

Does it seem like there is other-than-good, or that what’s being said is good is dualistic or limited?

 

That there is a witness?

 

Free will?

 

 

Could this be unacknowledged emotions playing out as actions & behaviors?

 

How does this emotionally defensive wall dynamic play out in your relationship(s)?

 

Self-care & self-love?

 

The true abundance and potentiality of you, “in the flesh”?

If the those questions were answered & that conversation were engaged in, emotions would actually be felt. The isolating facade of defection & projection on behalf of the separate self of thoughts, the protecting & upholding of the idea of a self which is happy, would begin to be seen through, by true happiness. ☺️

My bad, I should have said I’m truly happy in your language not that I’m happy.  I call that Bliss because it sits under changing emotional perception.  Bliss is unchanging Peace (Turiya is the best word).  Happiness or some other emotion is a changing state of mind.  So when the 30 changing emotions I listed above are felt on the surface, the unchanging underlying Bliss is there too.  It’s like tearing up watching a movie (emotion felt: sad) but knowing it’s just a movie (underlying Peace).  That’s a good analogy to point to what I’m trying to convey.

Why the twisting & disengagement then?

That sounds like your hang up not mine.  Maybe you’re projecting.

 

You seen to think Bliss means true happiness.  But this is a confusion.  Happiness  is not Bliss.  Happiness is an emotion that can change.  Bliss is not an emotion and does not change..   Emotions are changing where Bliss is not changing.  Emotions are caused by identification with duality including a separate self.  It’s the Self being seated in the Body where the Mind then creates the changing emotions just like it creates the changing thoughts.  Bliss or Turiya is Unchanging = You.

“Emotions for me are part”, vs being, as claimed & purported. 

There’s nothing wrong per se with emotional suppression and spiritual bypassing.

That’s a fake ChatGPT response.  

Fake? If I’m not mistaken you can click on that link and engage in conversation, asking GPT about its answer.

You’re too attached to winning and spiritual kung fu Phil.

“Spiritual kung fu” would be contingent on being a separate self, as in experiencing kung fu with another self. It’s emotional suppression & spiritual bypassing, not introspective self-discovery.

 I could run your posts through AI as well.  

Feel free to, I don’t mind.

You asked me to leave the community by PM and I grant that request.  Good luck to you.  There’s no need to argue with me or try to defeat me.   Carry on doing you.  I wish you well.  Happy 4th of July too.

"That highest Bliss is located in one's own Self. It is quiescent, coexistent with liberation, beyond description, and birthless.  And since It is identical with the unborn knowable (Brahman), they call It the Omniscient (Brahman)." -- Gaudapada, Commentary on the Mandukya Upanishad

That is an outright lie. The forum at large serves by suggesting introspection, self-discovery, alignment & self-realization. You sent a message asking if you should take a break from the forum, and I said yes, take 30 days off and introspect as to the true nature, the feeling of being me and come back and share. If ever the question is asked, should I take a break from the forum and introspect, the answer is always going to be yes.

I did a ChatGPT lookup on myself with respect to spirituality: Joseph Maynor.

Your teachings, or any teachings for that matter, are, well, exactly that - only teachings. More concepts on the nature of something that cannot be boiled down to a concept. 

Teachings on spirituality is in a way a hilarious statement, kind of like spiritual knowledge.

This is not love at all.  This kind of spiritual oneupsmanship.  Let’s not go this route..  It happened to you an Actualized, but you don’t need to perpetuate and project it.  Today is the anniversary of my dad’s death 3 years ago.  Let’s be a little more caring today and it’s also the 4th of July.   You can talk about Love all you want, but you’re nowhere near it.  You have the words down but you’re not here at all.   You’re in the mind.  Don’t do this stuff with me.  Stop shaming people by proxy.  

Let's be a little more caring today then 🙏

I don't know what love means to you, but much love from my side 💛

That is only an opinion on 'spiritual teachings', was not pointed at you or anything you publish personally, in any way whatsoever, I'm sorry if it made that impression🌞

I’m mourning my dad’s death today.  Exactly 3 years ago today. 

 

I imagine it must be a tough time for you then. Hopefully a little easier than it was three years ago. 

My condolences 🙏 and hang in there 💪
