My God in heaven was that horrifying. I am quite disturbed, yet still want to watch it again.

Yup mighty horrific dude, check out it's cousin eating the tarantula.

It's horrors like these that make us humans look positively harmless and a compassionate jesus creator god an oxymoron.

My one question is what is the purpose of life. It has been driving me insane for years. There are so many answers from people although who knows what the correct answer is.

IF you could ask GOD/UNIVERSE/ HIGHER DIMENSIONAL BEING....ONE question...JUST ONE, and it was 100% the answer...

What would you ask? and WHY would you ask it?

The question would simply be "WHY does THE ALL create Universes?"

Men have striven hard to answer this question, but still there is no answer worthy of the name. Some have imagined that THE ALL had something to gain by it, but this is absurd, for what could THE ALL gain that it did not already possess? Others have sought the answer in
the idea that THE ALL “wished something to love;” and others that it created for pleasure, or amusement; or because it “was lonely”; or to manifest its power;–all puerile explanations and ideas, belonging to the childish period of thought.

Others have sought to explain the mystery by assuming that THE ALL found itself “compelled” to create, by reason of its own “internal
nature”–its “creative instinct.” This idea is in advance of the others, but its weak point lies in the idea of THE ALL being “compelled” by anything, internal or external. If its ''internal nature,” or ''creative instinct,” compelled it to do anything, then the “internal nature” or “creative instinct” would be the Absolute, instead of THE ALL, and so accordingly that part of the proposition falls.

And, yet, THE ALL does create and manifest, and seems to find some kind of satisfaction in so doing. And it is difficult to escape the conclusion that in some infinite degree it must have what would correspond to an “inner nature,” or “creative instinct” in man, with correspondingly infinite
Desire and Will. It could not act unless it Willed to Act; and it would not Will to Act, unless it Desired to Act; and it would not Desire to Act unless it obtained some Satisfaction thereby. And all of these things would belong to an “Inner Nature,” and might be postulated as existing according to the Law of Correspondence. But, still, we prefer to think of THE ALL as acting entirely FREE from any influence, internal as well as external. That is the problem which lies at the root of difficulty–and the difficulty that lies at the root of the problem.

Strictly speaking, there cannot be said to be any “Reason” whatsoever for THE ALL to act, for a “reason” implies a “cause.” and THE ALL is above Cause and Effect, except when it Wills to become a Cause, at which time the Principle is set into motion. So, you see, the matter is Unthinkable, just as THE ALL is Unknowable. Just as we say THE ALL merely “IS”–so we are compelled to say that “THE ALL ACTS BECAUSE IT ACTS.” At the last, THE ALL is All Reason in Itself; All Law in Itself; All Action in Itself–and it may be said, truthfully, that THE ALL is Its Own Reason; its own Law; its own Act–or still further, that THE ALL; Its
Reason; Its Act; its Law; are ONE, all being names for the same thing.

The answer is locked up in INNER SELF of THE ALL, along with its Secret of Being. The Law of Correspondence, in my opinion, reaches only to that aspect of THE ALL, which may be spoken of as “The Aspect of
BECOMING.” Back of that Aspect is “The Aspect of BEING,“ in which all Laws are lost in LAW; all Principles merge into PRINCIPLE–and THE ALL; PRINCIPLE; and BEING; are IDENTICAL, ONE AND THE SAME.

While some of the ancient, and modern, Hermetic Teachers have rather inclined in the direction of applying the Principle of Correspondence to the question, with the result of the “Inner Nature” conclusion,–still the
legends have it that HERMES, the Great, when asked this question by his advanced students, answered them by PRESSING HIS LIPS TIGHTLY TOGETHER and saying not a word, indicating that there WAS NO
ANSWER. But, then, he may have intended to apply the axiom of his philosophy, that: “The lips of Wisdom are closed, except to the ears of

I had other options:

Is the brain responsible for consciousness, or is consciousness responsible for the brain?

What's outside the Universe?

Is time real?

Ever heard of The Domain?

Why not just The Golden Rule, and leave it at that?

IMO, If there was a God, and he only let you ask one question, I wouldn't ask anything at all, as the sheer magnitude of the disappointment would be too much for me to bare.

How are you? - To simply answer as many questions as possible, and to provide either unfeigned reassurance or the horrifying reality of the lack of its relevance.

EDIT: I see starboy kinda beat me to it. :/ Star for you for that, and my negligence in reading it late.

I might have to say it more than once.

From lurker to member because of this thread

Not because it is so interesting but I believe it is important. This is what we need to do more-stop and think some deep thoughts, once in a while.

I don't have any particular question for God. Not that I don't want to know things, but I know that God speaks to me (and everybody else, for that matter) all the time. What I need is the ability to listen to what he/she says. It's like not seeing the forest for the trees...

I believe that God is the sum of All. That we and God are the same. That there is no place where I stop and you begin. We are truly One. There never was anything else. However, in order to Know this, we must "forget" Who we are in order to remember What we are...

In this lies the mystery of perception. In order to "see" this we live in a relative universe where things only exist in conjunction to its opposite.

How can you know anything about yourself unless you define yourself in the presence of what you are not?
Who am I? The age old cry from the human soul...

You define yourself every moment by what you do, say, think, feel...but equally by what you don't do, say, think and feel.
Thats why you, when you declare something about yourself to the universe, also attract the opposite.

In the absence of what you are not. What you are is ...nothing.

We are not here to learn anything, or to evolve. We are here to remember. Every moment has in itself the possibility to remind you of who you are. What will you choose? How will you act? What will you declare to the universe about who you are?

We are the result of our own creation. And what we create comes back to us in what we experience as our life.

Yes, we have free will but that is not why there is so much suffering. It's a result of us choosing not to exercise it...

The world is exactly the way it is because thats the way we want it to be. Sorry, but that is the truth.
400 children die of starvation every hour on this planet. Not because we don't have food enough or lack the means to feed them. But because we choose to use our resources on other things. Like weapons.
Gandhi said: "This world has enough to satisfy everyones need, but not enough to satisfy one mans greed"

That pretty much sums it up.

We are constantly talking with God. It's our ability to listen to what God says that is lacking. Or our will to do it. Just remember that your life lived, is your end of the conversation...

A long introductory reply, but I needed to get it of my chest...
I'll sign of with something to ponder for you:

There are those who don't know...and they don't know, that they don't know.
-They are innocent as children. It is for us to nurture them and encourage them.

Then there are those who don't know, and who know that they don't know...
-They are willing. -Teach them!

Then there are those who don't know, but that think that they know.
-They are dangerous! -Avoid them...

Then there are those who know, but who don't know that they know...
-They are asleep. Awake them!

And then there are those who know, and who know that they know...
-Do not follow them...because if they know that they know...they would not have you following them...
But listen very carefully to what they have to tell you -because they just might say something that reminds YOU...of what you already know :-)

I think first I would ask if I can have more than one question..

Then, I might ask for a drink. I would need it.


Is it chance? Or fate?

Or perhaps this...

Has all of my life been a dream, and thus, for nought?

To answer your "500 year old question", one cannot detach themselves from another as the question would assume to imply.

One could not have 'Lived' 500 years in the 'present' without assisting one's Brethren in whatever way One may find in their heart.

The Gift of Life is 'extended' to those who support it, by Design.

When humankind come together in Consciousness, they are in Unity with one another thereby no longer see each other as separate but rather as part of the Whole, part of the Cosmos.

To see each being as having a Gift waiting to be revealed is not only Truth but Wise policy unto his Neighbor. One's neighbor may just put out one's fire someday.

I hope the 'words' above serves my attempt to answer your question with Justice to Jurisprudence.

To live according to one's inner Sapient guide is to have 'lived'.... at all.

A clear Conscience/Conscious is Most valuable, for without it, one can not advance forward. Nothing real or everlasting is built on a false foundation just as no object can be realized for what it is without a concept of it's originating blueprint/template.

And to be completely forthcoming, I'm not even sure where most of my 'thoughts' come from when I write. I write, therefor I Am unto you.

I could add, that I had a unique experience while in Belize and Cancun, Mexico within the past two years. Since that time and since those experiences of which I have explained prior on this site, I see the world about me as I had never imagined.

Unfortunately? in reference to the above statement, I have no memory of what transpired for two hours of lost time or answers for how 3 seven foot men? returned myself to my hotel room with no memory of who they were and no word from them as to their purpose. I simply gained consciousness once I stepped out of their vehicle to go to my hotel room.

My Mother had asked to join myself on this trip since she had never been to Cancun. She witnessed these beings drop me off at the door. She recalls they appeared silent, said not a word with a very serious expression on their faces. I found it strange how they just 'brisked' by 3 security guards without question and took me directly to my room. I never felt compelled to ask them a question either while they escorted me to my room. This is highly unlike my character therefor I am resigned to assume I was not meant to question. I was transported from the Cancun strip to downtown Cancun (approx. 25 minute drive). There are hundreds of hoteles in the area and I stayed at a hotel of which only had a key with no hotel identification on it and I was not in possession of the receipt either. I have no idea how they knew where I was staying.

The above may sound strange though it is actually the Truth. I suppose it will all make sense at some point in the future.

As to why i would ask that? I think the answer to that question is obvious ...

We are made to suffer, that we may not fear death...but not so much as to yearn for it.

Just thought this reflection might help a couple of ya.
