Why is it that we simultaneously teach children to own up to their mistakes, and teach them that God will take the responsibility of existence out of their hands?

This is the awe-inspiring universe of magic: There are no atoms, only waves and motions all around. Here, you discard all belief in barriers to understanding. You put aside understanding itself. This universe cannot be seen, cannot be heard, cannot be detected in any way by FIXED PERCEPTIONS. It is the ultimate void where NO PREORDAINED SCREENS occur upon which forms may be projected. You have ONLY awareness here---the screen of the magi: Imagination! Here, you learn what it is to be human. You… Read More

The eternal existential question has been asked, in the West, usually as: 'What is the origin (or cause) of evil?'
In Buddhism the question is asked differently - and that leads to different types of answers: What's the cause of suffering? Susanna asked in her version of this question: what about justice? aren't ethics important?
I'd like to go… Read More

Languages build up to reflect specializations in a way of life. Each specialization may be recognized by its words, by its assumptions and sentence structures. Look for stoppages. Specializations represent places where life is being stopped, where the movement is dammed up and frozen.

It was recently put to me to describe "why Taoism is different". My response:
Why Taoism is Different::::
The question or idea: “Why is Taoism different”, is immediately translated in my mind to: Why Taoism is so refreshing…
First, there is no deity with subjective and selfish ends to serve. There is wuji, or Hun-tun, the Primordial Chaos. Ineffable and beyond comprehension, I don’t need to worry about it. Outside any equation, it is the grand ultimate formula… Read More

"Ancient protein dating back 80 million years to the Cretaceous geologic period has been preserved in bone fragments and soft tissues of a hadrosaur, or duck-billed dinosaur, according to a study in May 1 issue of Science.....

“Great knowledge is all-encompassing; small knowledge is limited. Great words are inspiring; small words are chatter.
“When we are asleep, we are in touch with our souls. When we are awake, our senses open. We get involved in our activities and our minds are distracted. Sometimes we are hesitant, sometimes underhanded, sometimes secretive. Little fears cause anxiety, and great fears cause panic.
“Our words fly off like arrows, as though we knew what was right and wrong. We… Read More

Religion; “We KNOW
that God created life.”
Evolutionist; “We KNOW
that evolution created life.”
Something to remember: "Sigh, I am so sick of these evolution debates. It's inevitably futile, since creationism is a conclusion that one side enters the debate already having come to. Any evidence to the contrary is therefore false - it's a complete perversion of the entire idea of a discussion, since there is absolutely no synthesis that can be… Read More

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism.
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.
Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble.
The healthy man does not torture others - generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical… Read More

After much meditation, I have come to the ultimate conclusion. the meaning of life.
The meaning of life is the fact that it exists.
Every religious text is saying the exact same thing.
If you read the bible, it says "the meek shall inherit the earth"
This isnt a prediction for the rapture or some crazy future episode.
This is just saying what already is.
The meek have inherited the earth, even though it wasnt something to… Read More

The following recounts a vision I had around March 7th, 1996.
Prior to this dream, I was at an impasse with my belief system. Five months earlier, I had dropped out of my senior year in high school after being caught at school with a significant quantity of l¥sérg¡ç åç¡d d¡é†hlåm¡dé, and following a parental ultimatum, had gone to live at a Christian retreat for young men with substance abuse issues. During that five months I had read the Bible through for the first time. This was… Read More

The collective mental atmosphere of the world eats at my psyche. I can sense that element of myself which is one with those all around me, but the differences form a deadly contradiction. I stand immersed, isolated in personal sin which I can never expiate. The immensity of the universe outside my world floods my awareness. How can one man, one ritual, hope to knit such immensity into a garment fitted to all men?

The God of gods
From all that I can ascertain from a great deal of very deep study for many years, the "God of gods" of the Hebrew referred to a concept of one all-encompassing Principle from which all else is derived.
The universe and all within obeys this one most high Principle above which there can be no other. All that happens everywhere throughout reality is subject to this one Principle. Nothing escapes it.
The Hebrew language could not… Read More
