Re: Spiritual Agendas

I realize that this is an oxymoron, if you consider that agenda implies self-will, and spiritual implies surrender to something greater than oneself. Even so, each seeker initially comes to this journey with an agenda, and only the successful ones, who reach the end of that journey, realize somewhe...

Re: Music as Word of God

I don't think you're nitpicking, just being very precise, and this author demands such precision of his reader. As for brackets, I believe you are correct in assuming that they are not to be read as we would parenthesis, that is, parenthetical to the statement, but instead read as an offering toward...

Re: Music as Word of God

Very well put Anna, beautiful description! We forget that all thought is inherently dualist and cannot be otherwise. We then mistakenly believe that truth can be spoken or written and still be true - impossible. Yet with a certain craft and intention it is possible to defeat the mind with the very d...

Re: Music as Word of God

I've been accused of being a pantheist...Pantheism is defined as a belief that there is a god in everything; I would say, rather, everything is in God. I will suggest that your critics are themselves the pantheists. For is it not they who are asserting that god is in a thing? And on what other basi...

The Infinite One, being all there is, cannot experience sight, touch, taste, and so on, cannot enjoy relationship, cannot feel joy, fear, dread, affection, regret, remorse, and so on. And so He (whatever) manifests Himself as us! We are simply the Divine as Sensory Receptors. I am constantly astoun...

I fear that until we all gain the perspective of the enlightened we will all be operating within the limitations of the universe we perceive, and will find it very hard to overcome the tendency, all so human, to labeling and naming. But I agree with you that we should at least consider whatever pos...

I very much agree. Cinema is the preferred art form for this age, and amid all the Amusement it is also the vehicle for much Muse-ment. I have several ideas why this is the case, but all could be summed around the extent that modern living has become vicarious. Thanks for the recommendations.

... the answer is not to lock up the "others" (including evil) which each of us perceives within and around "me", but rather to see that there is no such thing as "me, not you", that there is no such thing as "a person" or "a" anything else. Oh that...

My vote goes with Phyllis. In this context "remembering who you are" or "remembering yourself" is simply an admonition for or affirmation of, meta-cognitive thought. Remembering appeals to me as a better word to use than knowing because remembering more clearly indicates that thi...

...there does seem to be something unique to the woman to woman relationship that men don't seem to generate toward one another in similar fashion.

"I am the Truth"

Wow...so beautiful! This is so close to home, home, to the heart of divinity, one cannot come any closer! What can I say, when one is soooo graced with such love and compassion to realize that "I Am the Truth", in spite of all the 'evidence' to the contrary, what remains!? God this is Good!
