Sparrow, if I suffer and surrender, isn't that just cowardice? An open heart, love, if that is the answer, why is that not just cowardice? Because I fear hurt or if I am angry at lies and injustice, running back - cowardice. If I am upset, isn't it cowardice to run back to the safe haven which is always love? How am I not a coward then if I go back to Her only because I do not want the pain.

Dear Sparrow,

Would you , are you able to provide any guidance, any help for my parents?

My Mother still has the voice, my Dad was angry yesterday but he didn't know why.

I am so worried for them.

Please can you advise me how to help them, how they are, do they need help, what can I do.

I am so concerned. I do not know what to do.

Namaste,
floatsy

Hi Sparrow,

I am curious if you could provide your thoughts on what I am about to say relating to the "subconscious mind", meaning when we say we as humans are conditioned or programmed as children (and we all are on some level), it is the subconscious that is programmed. So, the way I see it is that this means, that it's the human brain that is being programmed and conditioned with beliefs and habitual thought patterns because it's the human brain which is the one that is interpreting things in a certain way when we are children, and the human brain as we know, is based off of survival, and all of this conditioning and programming (beliefs and thought patterns) that creates neural pathways in the brain is all stored in cellular memory as well within the body and when the body perishes, this memory is then transferred to the etheric vehicle as you call it and that is why we often will not remember who we truly are immediately after death of the body. Because this memory is still being 'worn" by us (at times) and it clouds the beauty of who we truly are which is Spirit.

Therefore, when we uncover and eventually alter old, conditioned beliefs and see through a lot of the old patterns, we literally calm our nervous systems down, alter our vibration and in turn, change the old fear based neural pathways in the brain as well because the neural pathways are a direct result of the "state of consciousness" we are holding on to.

So, can you comment on this and do you resonate with what I am saying? And also, what is your definition of the subconscious mind and where does the brain fit in?

Thank you dear friend!

Hi Sparrow!

I don't think I've posted here in a few years at least, we had some communication going at one point, it's great to see your still active on here.

I wanted to get your take on a technique of meditation I've learned about called Vipassana, it's taught as being the technique used by the Buddha to uproot the defilements in his mind by focusing on the sensations arising in the body and remaining neutral or "equanimous".

The centers founded under the late S.N Goenke have popped up all over the world, and are run by volunteers. I feel this technique could be certainly beneficial, maybe even a real method of eventually gaining enlightenment.

I'd be curious to hear your take on it if any.

By the way, where do you live in the world?

Mathew

Dear Spirit Guide Sparrow,

I hope that you are well and surrounded in Love.

I retract my questions from this thread, and to you. I have had some amazing assistance recently in a thread from the poster called "awareness" and I am satisfied.

Many blessings to you and all that which you Love,

floatsy

Dear Sparrow,

Do life forms with shorter life spans, such as insects, feel the passage of time differently? Would they feel it as slower, since they are dealing with a shorter life span? And would trees of hundreds of years feel it going faster?
