    What do you think is the core of your creation? Why do we feel nothing out of ordinary or special when everything is working perfectly in our body and mind and why do we feel disturbed when our wellbeing shaken even slightly and that it feels abnormal? Is our core perfect tranquilty and wellbeing?

    Perfect tranquility? I doubt it. Cabin fever and mid-life crises seem to show that we desire novelty and stimulation, not passivity and constancy.

    The only constant is change. Life is chaos, and we revel in that.

    Perhaps you could first show that the phrase "core of your creation" is meaningful.

    I dont understand why you need further explanation :) it is simply what you feel that is there when you turn your awareness to what is deep inside of you. I dont know if you ever tried that.
    You cant do it for anybody else.you cant even tell if anybody else has that kind of an awareness without them being you.so perhaps I understand why you need further explanation :-D You can only see what is inside of you, so it is the core of creation for you. Any clear?

    I like this and I get what you are trying to say.

    Our core is Brahman; pure being-bliss-awareness. That is our true nature. That is why we strive for happiness and survival; our inner nature is driving us.

    Like Iti OJ said, the only constant thing is change.

    Another is permanence. Everything gets recycled. But then again, if you look at things through my eyes you'll see nothing changes, nothing is recycled, because it is all the same.

    We strive for what is always there. Its clouded by material world, physical self. It is 'noised' :)
    So when we die? What do you think?

    Well, I believe we spend time on the astral plane digesting the good we learned in this life (how to create peace and happiness). Then we reincarnate and try to do good and learn more. Eventually, an eon from now, we will drop our sense of limited ego existence and merge into Brahman and be the peace-bliss-awareness we always were but lost in the 'noise' of ego experience.

    :-D yay! Thats great.
    Is it really an eon from now? Or is it more like we are always there in a sense and yet not aware and an eon from now we will be wholly there and it is not obligatory we be here,we be here because we have all the time and we love our being too and even when we are wholly there I think we would love to come back for various occations and we do :)

    We're on the same page. We are always somewhat there but not all the way. Drop your ego and you're there now. For most, identifying themselves with the Core, rather than the ego, is a slow process.
