Also, i notice the Jewish mind, despite the profane representations of it by gnostic and Buddhist writers (like alan watts) finds complete respite in
worshiping God. And in the Jewish system, which is remarkably complex, and tremendously deep, God, is absolutely at one with the environment. The soul
may be a person traversing through a passage called the world, but the world, the Makom (Heb. Place) is ALSO a name of God. Thus, the world is God,
the soul going through it, a refraction of God, and all for the purpose of establishing in this world a living and vital experience of God amongst
I find this beautiful. I also find the Christian, and Muslim, and even the Hindu versions beautiful. I just take offense to any assertion of "no -
just be", and to say the Jewish revelation is merely the interference of reality "as it is" by human egoism, and not a revelation of God.
Truth does not stay in the East, as opposed to the west. Truth appears in the East, in its own form, in the west (the americas, native indians) in its
own form, and in the Middle East, the heart of civilization, in its own form.
According to your philosophy we would all be of the one mind, singular of emotion and purpose.
You're misinterpreting what I've said. Abiding by a moral code is not making everyone of a "singular emotion", but at the same time, unity, TRUE
unity, can only be established when all minds work at the same level, and are vivified by the same ultimate goal. I would call that serving God, and
another person may call that living in tune with the Tao, or with nature. I completely discount the non-metaphysical views, since they are in
themselves philosophically and logically unsound.
But also realize, we are NOT like nature. OUR nature, IS ALSO NATURE~!, so to order, and to moralize, is quite natural, and quite apart of our ability
to understand and be responsible.
. Your comments reek of the self righteous preachings of the early church and its arrogance that ITS way is the only RIGHT way
And yet you do the same, in your own, passive way, by denying my philosophy as 'wreaking like the early church". Frankly, I'm dumbfounded by the
comparison. What connection do you imagine exists between what I'm saying and the early church? Don't steal? Promote respect for property? Don't
murder - promote respect for life? Don't gossip - promote respect for speech, as well as the negative consequences of slander, gossip etc? These are
totally reasonable things.
Dont waste your time replying to this post as this matter is closed, and i have nothing more to say on the topic
Well, i will respond. Also, people may oppose my views. Just like there are people, Jews if you would believe, who would defend the right to "free
speech" for Nazis - the same people who advocate killing Jews. Sometimes simple reason, simple common sense, is the MOST INTUITIVELY true advice in
