Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

My point is that use, abuse and the need for discernment exist at all levels, in all directions in a great mysteriousness in which everything is connected. Ahh! 👍 I didn't have the time-energy-inclination to wade through the hour+ of Pagel's 'dissertation'. Yes! ,,, Xceptin' to the idea of 'mysteri...

Re: Trauma and Spiritual Development

In a separate conversation, Ashvin asked an excellent question: Why should 'events' force us to realize the deeper levels of understanding as opposed to us freely seeking and confronting them ourselves? Key idea to contemplate: "In dissociated space, we are not able to evolve our energy."...

Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

On the other hand, after the "I" was fully incarnated in the temporal, for the first time in the Christ event, consciousness gradually finds itself as embedded within time. Cycles turn out to be more like spirals. They don't repeat indefinitely but every cycle brings something new - it do...

Re: Wow! Existence has always existed

There is only 'Being'. Non-Being is a purely imaginary 'state'. Of course, 'imagination' is a power-ful; aspect/faculty of THAT which gives 'rise' to the ex peer ience and ex press ion of any and all Being. It's complicated - like 'The Devil'. If you imagine it/he/she is 'real', it becomes 'real' f...

Re: Wow! Existence has always existed

There is only 'Being'. Non-Being is a purely imaginary 'state'. More food for thought: " That which is not, shall never be; that which is, shall never cease to be. To the wise, these truths are self-evident. " (The Bhagavad Gita, Ch2) And from Seth Speaks, channeled by Jane Roberts: "...

Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

The challenge of embodiment is to be fully embodied in relationship. This challenge exists at every level. Aye to that, Lou. Based on my understanding, I would say: 'The challenge and opportunity of psychospiritual incarnation as a 'nodal' soul in a multiplistic world is to become a fully relationa...

Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

'Tame' = 'slavery' and 'wild' = 'freedom' ... Indeed, what about those wasps that somehow turn spiders into egg-hosting 'slaves' that are tasked with the role of spinning ~ not their usual fly-trapping webs ~ but structures that will serve as the hatched wasp larvae's cocoon?

Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

The male lion does not kill the cubs because of wickedness. He doesn't think whether he should or should not kill them. He's following the inner compulsion of his instinctive nature. The Spirit is enchanted in the instinctive dream of the lion, it simply flows together with instinct. Man becomes ma...
