Re: Turning Points

I'm thinking, "thanks, i needed that."
Me too, the part about making peace with a decesed family relative especially. I am going to do that. Thanx.

Re: And yet, is the body prisoner

if we are in relationship with the body


This thought is very interesting to me. I have never thought about my body that way, as being something I am in relationship with. You have done enormous things to my head. Thank you, I think.

“the courage to stand alone” I find that A Course in Miracle makes a similar challenge, to stand away from the crowd. It is not easy. the endless legalistinc debates that characterize "orthodox" Christianity I believe that such "legalistic debates" are a form of mutual reinforce...

How about Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai" and the Hollywood version "The Magnificent Seven"?

Here's something I like from one of my Zen Buddhist texts which sounds like this forum. A student asks, "What is Zen?" The Master replies, "It is right before your eyes." The student says, "If it is right before my eyes, why can't I see it?" The Master says, "You c...

Like you, I am a reader of A Course in Miracles. I am also a follower of Zen Buddhism. It may sound like an impossible combination, but not for me. Both seem to be telling me to find a quiet place, sit down, take a long, deep breath, and stop fussing.

How about "pleochroic" as a word to help illustrate this thread's topic? It means "exhibiting different colors when viewed from different directions." Or, where you are looking from determines what you see.

Mother Teresa

Does anyone here have any thoughts about the publication of Mother Teresa’s letters expressing the void she felt in her faith? It certainly surprised me to read that she did not feel God’s presence in her life or the presence of Jesus, in her words I look but I do not see, I listen but I do not hear...

I hear in "scientific" language exactly what ACIM says in "spiritual" language. I agree. And if everything is spiritual then so must be everything that is said in either language. That makes sense, doesn't it? The seeker's task is to keep that in mind all the time. As William Sh...

little more than curlicues

You must be correct, but when I hear Christians and Muslims and others shout at one another Our way or no way it does not sound like mere curlicues to me.

Art, if I may address you so, I am new to this forum, but I have read much of it, and learned a lot, including from your posts, so I also welcome you back from wherever you have been.

Tough questions which I can't answer. To me destiny means that God already knows everything there is to know about me & my life, and my job is to feel okay about that ... surrender. That's what I pray about. sometimes it works. :wink:

I came to this site today following a link to the articles about the Course in Miracles, which is my path. I like what is said in those articles and the rest of what I have seen here so far. I plan to read a lot more. It is an interesting forum, too. May I please have access to the Sand Box? As for ...
