A terrible road, the road of truth

It is a terrible road, the road of truth, for it makes us become responsible to that which has no breathe, no form, no depth, substance, yet which is the underlining cause of all that is, was, and shall forever be. It is terrible in the sense that if we are sincere to it, it will not leave us with a...

The middle way

While going through my archives, found this. Can't remember where Its from. "In the Blackfoot myth of the Buffalo Dance, we see one way of handling the problem of death. Death is a problem because we die, and because life depends on death. In the myth, death isn't absolute. The people have the power...

Jufa, Good news and bad news. Good news is that your ideas sound thoughtful. The bad news is that I cannot figure out what you mean by "compassion". .............."Myths are clues to the spiritual potentialities of the human life."............Campbell ~ CarmelaBear, you cannot know anything of what...

Cadfael, what are the human conditions we live within if not our interpreted thoughts of that we have not an inkling of their cause and effect. Should one be able to see the beginning of a situation, circumstance, environ, or condition, they will see the end also. The complete images of all that pla...

When an individual sat out to change the world, it is really their world sought to be changed. Most individuals never, however, consider the problems of the world were not of their doing. Considering not this truth, what then are the changes sought, by an individual, which will sat in motion a meth...

I viewed a funeral. It was not of a poet of metaphors, or philosopher, nor ex-president. It was a man as I. A dreamer who dreampted dreams of Being, not becoming. There were no speculations of what happened before he became consciously aware. No theorizing about God's intention concerning creation, ...

We do not create ourselves. We form the conclave of our prejudices which become our button of committed living. From what element[s] and authority [other than I think] do you claim gives you the power to be the architect to designs and create you? And from what consciousness and conscious thought [w...

I think much of the terminology used in this discussion is a bit difficult since these words need to be specified a bit more. Also I think Coleridge's definition of phantasy, and primary and secondary imagination seem relevant. The creative poet is the one who can find two unrelated items even cont...

I enjoy your ideas, jufa. How we view all of this perhaps depends on why we think we are "here." If we are here to grow via experience, then perhaps sex was not the cause behind our appearance and perhaps the illusion is the interactive playground of our own making. I do agree that we have all we n...

Thank you for your reply SunSinger. I do not disagree with what you state, for how can your discovery and evaluation not be true to your experience. All our assertions, doubt, joys, pains and pleasures, knowledge and beliefs, does not change one things in the functions of this Life we attest to. And...

How can one compare that which cannot be grasped by the mind? Men are always giving a subjective viewpoint of faith, and what faith is. The dichotomy of faith being blind or a bridge equalizing ones dual personalities is achieved simply by stepping into ones potential of righteousness. This stepping...

Compassion is what the weak cry out for. The Earth is not always benevolent. The Universe is not greatly compatible with life. If humans had originally been filled with compassion then humanity would have vanished a long time ago. I seem like Nietzsche. I do like Charlie Chaplin. I am tender hearte...

The question presented here today is:

Just want to talk for a few moments on my take on the reality of Reality. The message I bring is not new, for there is nothing new in the universe, and by the same token, there is nothing old. All that is is of the Substance and Essence of God. There is nothing which is not perfect, whole, complete,...

Oh Carmelabear, yes "When the retreat is in progress, it is the right thing to do." And indeed "We may make no conscious effort, because it flows as we are compelled to act." to eliminate our fear or the people we find terrifying will seem less intimidating by comparison to awful tales of savagery. ...
