Namaste

Silence your thoughts,
Discard your memories,
Release your expectations.
What remains is indefinable,
Intangible and unspeakable:
Your very Self.
Seek it tirelessly.

Namaste

Before you continue any further, please consider this: In articles and posts here and there on this website, the name Jesus appears. “Jesus” is the English form of the Latin form of the Greek form of the Hebrew word Yeshua or Yehoshua. In fact, scholars tell us the man’s name was almost certainly an Aramaic word, most likely something like Issa. Given that, I cannot help but wonder, is it appropriate for me, for us, to consider him by the English version of the Latin name used by Pontius Pilate and his Roman soldiers. Surely his mother, his siblings, his disciples, his followers, did not address him by that Roman name. Suppose a dear friend of yours were arrested and tortured by a foreign authority, and they called him by a foreign name, would you adopt it? The question answers itself, doesn’t it?

So, slowly, a bit at a time, where appropriate I am adding the name Issa to The Zoo Fence. If this makes you uncomfortable, I get that. I have been there; parts of me still are. It has taken me a while, and I am still adjusting. But I remind myself, it has been two thousand years. It is past time. We owe the man his name. (December 4, 2022)

This is a “LITE” version of The Zoo Fence.
It was installed on July 9, 2020.
The original website was larger than this,
but not necessarily better.
What’s changed over the past 25 years is us;
we have aged, our focus has changed,
and the website reflects that.
We hope you will enjoy, and find useful, what is here now.

There are still some links here to other
TZF pages that generate the “Oops” page.
That is because becoming LITE
has retired some pages,
but links to them still remain
with nowhere to go.
We are mindful of this situation,
and are working to resolve it.
But we are old, so, yes,
it will take a while.

Please read our DISCLAIMER:

Inevitably and rightly, there is a lot on The Zoo Fence about scriptures considered sacred by various traditions. As you read those comments and observations, please understand that nothing written here is, or is intended to be, an academic consideration. We are not theologians, biblical scholars, or historians. We are not experts. In the context of this website, our interest in sacred writings is solely as spiritual seekers who have undertaken a personal, inner journey for the Truth of who and what we are. We know that many of our statements, and perhaps even all of our conclusions, will not reflect, and perhaps may even contradict, current orthodoxy, theology, and history. We mean no disrespect by that, but it does not concern us, for again we are not academics, and this is not an academic undertaking. For us, the scriptures of the world’s spiritual traditions are a guide and a tool and a vehicle which can facilitate and accelerate our own passage along the spiritual path only if we understand their message to us. Therefore, we take it to be our duty, even our sacred responsibility, to discover and understand their meaning to us personally, to decipher what the Universal Teacher intends for us to see in them and to do by them. All of that is what we hope to share with you, and we ask that you read it in that spirit.

The Zoo Fence is Made in Maine!
