One thing that was missed in the conversation about Muldashev and his books was that actually the religious people such as Masters, Lamas, etc, with
whom he spoke never said that Mohhamed, Jesus or any other were not messiahs. They say,indeed, that Jesus and Mohhamed were students of the
Bonpo-Buddha. When questioned why there are so many religions one of the Lamas said that although all of the enlightened were students of the Great
One- Bonpo-Buddha, they were individuals, as well, so they did interpret their teachings in a different way. Of course, however, they were people from
our ( the Fifth Civilization ) who were long ago held in Somati.
That gave me the idea that it is really possible, both historically and Biblically since we have evidance of what is called the resurrection of Jesus.
He could have been into Somati when in the cave! IN A CAVE! one of the places which provides the temperature for a person to be in SOMATI!
Forgive me for being a kill-joy. I'm not even trying- it's just what I naturally do well. If we're gonna assume that Jesus was burried then got
back up and lived again, we may as well believe the whole story, shouldn't we? The resurrection is the most unbelievable part!
Besides- Jesus was stabbed in the heart with a spear after being crucified. One of the desciples was a physician, so I'm guessing that he wouldn't
have written that down by mistake. Good luck sleeping through that (well... good luck waking up anyway).
Also the way he cures people is absolutely explicable when bearing in mind the fact that this is possible through concentrating positive psychic
Christianity has never given me enough, when talking about belief...it is too much hidden into words and stories of shepherds.
Perhaps we're blaming Christianity for being a victim of circumstances. You sound like a person who may take an interest in integralism (the persuit
of the underlying spirituality which all religions share). My friend Meera wrote a paper i'll try to get for you which discusses the way that western
religions have been overlooked by many because they are too familiar.
Basically, it could be argued that regardless of its overall truth, Christianity is more spiritual than tradition generally makes obvious. In western
tradition, God's have generally been little more than supermen. The confinement of God's to physical form and physical powers in Western thinking
has paralyzed the understanding of Christianity's basis, even though the spirituality is right there in our faces even in the orthodox form of the
religion. When you get right down to it, the most apparent difference between Christianity and other spiritualisms is that Christianity presents moral
and conceptual absolutes for the world. I can see why this isn't attractive but it's also realistic. I -expect- a good religion to explain the order
and working of the universe, otherwise it would be incomplete.
A few well known things about Christianity which would trigger very careful and likely unsatisfactory replies if presented to your minister:
1. Genesis clearly states that man can become like the Gods (yes, it's plural in Genesis).
2. God is can't directly control men or angels. He has to influence them externally. So what does this say about the natures of God and man?
3. Everything God offers is accomplished BY FAITH. You don't grovel for a blessing- you know that god knows your needs, you know that god will
provide for your needs, god provides for your needs. In other words, you aren't given things- you manifest them; hardly a western concept.
More to follow- i'm interrupted.
