(regarding the comment you left me back in August)
Deeds more than creeds. I think that is very important. What good is a thought system (like religion) if it doesn't actually affect anything? It's like walking the talk. That's good.
Is this for me? I will be 79, tomorrow. Or the late, great Martin Luther King? Tomorrow is his 80th. We both attended Boston University the same year, but we did not meet. He graduated the spring of 1954. I entered that fall to do two years of post graduate studies in the HISTORY OF IDEAS.
Thanks for your comment Rev. Please excuse my flippant mood when i wrote my mythos. I didn't really mean, "Screwed by Christianity", well i did, but it doesn't really reflect what i was trying to go on to say. I just think faith at an early age restricts your potential of looking at things without preconception. Like now, in a recent post about creation... i don't have reason to believe there is a creator... or sufficient evidence to deny there is a creator. Yet, if my money had to be bet, i would go for the creator option. It is completely beside me why... i think this could be due to my conditioning and church upbringing as a youth... And it leads me to wonder how different i would be now if it wasn't for "churchianity/christianity". I dont think i would be a better person, i just think i would be better able to account for my opinions.
I will look up pneumatology later. Are you a, or associated with, professors? Because most college professors, and even school teachers don't like Wikipedia. I think that's wierd because it's constantly updated and is also expansive... who knows?...
I liked your comment on my survey thing.
You asked how to write up the case study. For what purpose are you writing it up? You say you have already written a five page account for a book. Right? So you must want to expand it for some other purpose. A magazine article? A chapter for another book? A segment in a book you are writing about exceptional healing? I would suggest you get the young woman's permission if you have not already done so, and then you can go on from there.
You are correct. The book PASSAGES went through several printings and was a pioneering piece of work. I am so pleased to hear about your innovatie work with hypnosis. Your work with your daughter deserves to be written up as a case study. There is a growing interest in spiritual uses of psychological hypnosis.
