  Should I go deep enough within myself to open the door of my inner Conscience, then find a way to step into my soul, does my odyssey end there?

Or does stepping into my soul reveal all personalities I do, or do not exhibit since I became a living soul?

Or does the truth of my odyssey begin when I touch that which I was before I became a living soul?

Fellow traveler - the true odyssey begins when one realizes there is no I, no “my soul”, only the Big It of which the little temporary phantoms we call you and me are just wee parts.

But there is an ‘I’, which is the 1st question asked:

  Should I go deep enough within myself to open the door of my inner Conscience, then find a way to step into my soul, does my odyssey end there?

If therefore, ‘I’ is eliminated, what presence will there be to begin an odyssey?

Is there an ‘I’? Perhaps your journey thus far has been a false one. Perhaps the odyssey of which you speak is too small. Don’t think of an odyssey, think of THE odyssey.

Perhaps is a assumption.

When does asking questions become a word game?

When you don’t understand why questions must be asked. At that point you become gullible, stupid. And easily manipulated, like a majority of the voting public in the US.

When the asker doesn’t realize he’s not even making sense.

Or when responding to another person who doesn’t make sense.  Tic for tat is always fair.

See what I mean…word games. I guess you didn’t pick up on the fact that I was just playing around with you. Your OP was just the kind of vague question that philosophers used to ask ages ago. Alot of very smart people apparently making sense because the sentences seemed to make sense, but it was just basically personal opinion couched in high sounding lingo, i.e. word games. And if you’ve followed philosophy in the “modern age” that has pretty much given way to discussion about language. Of course to most laymen and religious/spiritually oriented folks it stills seems to refer to something real, but it’s not. It’s just so much talk.

Well excuse me for offering my OP off of your OP.  Doesn’t that put us in the same boat, and make the words you speak about applicable to you also?
