The responses to this topic have been a pleasure to read. Waka - In no way discounting the previous post's but just pointing out a possibility - that maybe you should be empty. You say you have been thinking about your spiritual life - so you have intent. Maybe this emptiness you are feeling is the ...

Well, I agree with your disagreement - it makes sense - but I also still agree with what I had written. The reason being, lie's in our and many's view of anger itself. From what I can infer from your last post you equate anger with damage. This may be a common affect but it is not a universal qualit...

I cannot say that I am following my bliss so may not be able to confidently answer in any 'been there, done that' way - strictly speaking. But it would seem to me that anger is an ingredient in both a bliss and an un-bliss state. The difference lies in the manner of acknowledgement by the person in ...

Just wanted to state for the record there is way to much overkill in the level of depth in response to Raphael's banning. As far as I can tell the rules that he broke repeatedly were rather straight forward and simple. Response's such as SteveC's exlamations of 'Heretic' this and that and so on & Ev...

SteveC said: "I think I addressed that point (either in this thread or the original one) that how people see connections is as important as the context or content." This is true - within a relative scope of use - one could argue what you are saying in reference to connections infinitly - given the p...

SteveC - The thread you say you got derailed from had already been derailed by the exchange you and Raphael were having that was off topic. I have marked this occurrence repeated times by you two. You are both great writers so it was not greatly disturbing to me - but it is inconsiderate of the thre...

Once again - "Status of JCF associate altering behaviour" I am not sure I understand the meaning of the title. Could someone explain? What does status imply? & altering behavior? What is the context of the thread? I may be dim on the uptake in regard to this, but would appreciate a clarification.

twokay - What you speak of is the generative aspect of the golden section - the 'whirling rectangles' affect. You are correct that a seashell is a good representation - specifically a Nautilus shell. This is not what I was asking to construct. It was a 'tree of life' based on a golden section. I wil...

Ban him for a month is my suggestion. He really does appreciate this site. It would be in keeping to Joseph Campbells general approach to life to do so. No one should be permamently banned on a site such as this. Besides the obvious ones. Maybe I am unaware of all the stuff that went down with Rapha...

Since we are born, the abyss is. We pay for that glory by standing, balanced on the edge. The rites of passage going on and on again - being the chasm, being the mountain, existing in between. The inner mind always knowing the truth - 'I just came from eternity and am soon to return.'

Mark O. - The difference between "Follow your bliss" and "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law." concerns the fundamental use of power. There is no difference - but there is. The bliss followers do not suscribe to the 'whole of the law' part. 'Within the whole of the law' would match up b...
