Re: Full Circle?

Another thought on all of this.

Is it like this?

We have to let go of all of the religious trappings.
Then we have to let go of all of the 'spiritual' trappings.
Then we have to let go of God? As Meister Eckhart states?

Full Circle?

I am in the midst of some kind of spiritual hurdle, I hope to put is as simply as possible, because it just feels like it needs to be out of me. I'm starting to suspect that as a seekers, we do not move forward, like on a highway to a destination, but instead we are traveling a circle. I seem to con...

Re: Out in the cold too long?

Question for anyone out there. I had the strangest dream last night. Within it I was the good guy/gal and the bad guy/gal. I've heard before that the characters in our dreams are simply different aspects of ourselves, but this is going too far. I'm thinking more a sign of severe mental illness. The ...

Re: Out in the cold too long?

Thank you for your response, w4tvq. Everything you wrote is right on, correcto. I agree, I'm worrying way to much about me right now, to put it honestly, I have my head, well, you know where. I can't see anything...it is so dark!!! :uhh: It came over me so quickly and is so all consuming that I cann...

Out in the cold too long?

I am struggling with loneliness right now. It is not the physical loneliness that ails me, it is the lonliness of my soul to connect with other open souls. I do not doubt that the holidays have somehow brought something that was already simmering to a boil. I will again use Weil to express my concer...

Re: "Orthodoxy"

This is what I've decided it is like trying to talk to many Christians. BTW, I'm really glad for the Sand Box, 'cause I need the freedom to say it like I see it. I wish I could remember what show or what book it was from my childhood, but I am not sure. The closest I can come to is that it was an ep...

Re: Very Nice

I read this on Ampers &nd last night. It is a good description of ZooFence and its members. But those who really desire to understand, who are looking to find that which is eternal, without beginning and without an end, will walk together with a greater intensity, will be a danger to everything that...

Re: Very Nice

In the spirit of this conversation, I served---for my very small family gathering this evening---a very untraditional menu. That shook a few cages. Not sure how it went over, simply a lot of confused looks about he whole thing. :D Ain't life fun??? I don't need Guidjief'fs proof, I like to put toget...

Re: Very Nice

Okay, I'm having this same experience, as Peggy Sue. I'd swear there are new threads thrown in here. I think of a philosopher, can't remember who, for sure, as I'm in the beginning stages of Alzheimers, :? but he thought that in every school class, something very shocking and unexpected should be do...

Re: Divine Accomodation

I just googled Divine Accomodation and did you know there is a Hotel called Divine? :) I have never heard of this before either, it is an extremely compelling concept. I'm drawn to the view that the message doesn't change as much as we do. I think because I have also had the same experiences of read...

This idea that Judas was an advanced disciple, who was leaving his Master is very intriguing. The other essays and posts you've written on this subject continually ring true to me and it makes so much sense. It especially does, because of the very painful ending with my teacher/guru. I had never app...

Hi Peggy Sue :D Isn't this the coolest site? I cannot even explain how much it has helped me through in the last year. The writings always speak to my inner journey, sometimes in almost an eerie way... It is nice to have somewhere to go, where we may explore this spiritual seeking, which is life, an...

When taking Biblical classes I had a professor that I respected very much (and still do) I did not agree with him on every point, but I respected his value of good solid reasoning above all else, even if it worked against your own point of view. It was in only one area that I saw this attribute slip...

It requires passivity, acceptance, surrender, doesn’t it? “To be lived by it” means to set aside the “me” that wants to be the one who lives, the one who experiences In my limited and beginners understanding of the Tao Te Ching---this is the most profound message I found. All the sayings about 'not...
