Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Dear Lacewing, baby... Listen wiener boy... that was pretty funny! :lol: No, I haven't done acid for a very long time...but I enjoyed your story. Perhaps there are some of you here who really have no clue of what I'm talking about or referring to. Or maybe you DON'T WANT to acknowledge certain diff...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Do you really NEED to be so resistant and argumentative? What the fuck is your problem? Trying to communicate with those who are poor at it. You think YOU'RE BETTER AT IT??? With all of your emotional wingnut ideas that you frequently spew? Right...blame your ineptitude on other people and situatio...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Please give some examples of what I said that you see as unexplainable and leading nowhere. Otherwise, you're not explaining anything and it leads nowhere. "I'm using the word divine to mean sacred, heavenly, celestial (love, light, and expansion)" What does diviner have to do with love when a divi...

Throwing one unexplainable word into a discussion, most can work around.
To throw as many as you did and the way you did leads nowhere.

Motive and opportunity

I'm not sure we ever own much of anything. Our lives and characters are a result of all kinds of influences that mold us and/or distort us -- and "our thinking" may not even be our own as much as a collective of one influence or another. Our liberty is also based on all kinds of influence and circum...

Re: "A cause is a good way to keep us young and feeling that we are a part of a greater whole."

Sure, it can be. A "cause" can also be the reason that people do horrible or misguided things. Right? It's also true that we can be young and feeling that we are part of a greater whole WITHOUT some kind of specific cause. Simply because that's how we feel/choose. Agreed? I don't think there are any...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

Does your truth also remove God from "heavenly," just as it does for "divine?" Why does a concept of heaven require a god? Heaven is in your mind. You need to expand beyond your small ideas, Walker. You're trying to limit communication and understanding by defining words very narrowly based on arch...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

I'll try to clarify... This paragraph of prose is nothing more than utterly meaningless jibberish. There is nothing more tedious than reading pop mysticism. There was nothing wrong with my paragraph. Your lack of comprehension and interest is your own trip. Have fun with that. ...an irrational dog'...

Re: EVIL!!!!!!!!

I think of "evil" as the other end of the spectrum from "divine". Both terms can be applied in many different ways -- so intent is made clear by the context they're used in. So your reference point is 'the divine'. So you are saying the divine is the source of both good and evil, because setting ou...

Re: An act of God

Doesn't it seem obviously self-serving to imagine a "source" that is a big, unlimited version of us? How does that even possibly make sense? Well, if there is a God, then you'd have the story backward. God wouldn't be a "big" representation of us ... we'd be the pale reflection of God . He'd be the...

Re: Perception

Lacewing: it's not a belief system because it's based on first person subjective experience. :lol: Experience of what? Of Divinity (the Absolute) in a non theistic fashion. Using meditation, contemplation and self-inquiry. Non dualism in effect. The ancient non dualists knew the true nature of Cons...
