Ah, but what ever you learn is still in your head. Thus you can only ever know your own head.

Is that why some people have got big heads?

Nah, that is just the way your head perceives them.

I think it's fairly obvious that everything is a matter of perception.

What is also obvious is that expressive skills aren't the greatest around here.

Flawed perception + inadequate expression =

Many a young Marine during the 1990's stood before the full length mirror on the quarter deck and screamed at their reflection with authority "I am not crazy, YOU are crazy!" by order of their drill instructors.

I was one of them.

Forgive me.

So if it is all a matter perception yet different people have different perceptions
I guess we all have a different way of expression
Yet the term Godhead what does it really mean - I guess everyone would express that differently
Plus you could have a different word instead of Godhead to describe the concept what ever that is.
Where does the term Godhead come from - I heard it banded about in the 1960s
Sorry rambling
EDIT Just found link explaining godhead but it is Wiki so there will be more to it no doubt

I use Godhead to express my view of God as a cosmic consciousness.
Part of my reason for this is that I think this cosmic consciousness is what the old shaman found. Then men took it, a non miracle working natural entity and began their, my God has a bigger dick than yours thing and they added all the impossible attributes that the Christian God ended up with.

I wanted to move the concept of God away from the wish list God that we all know even while we know it is a myth.

Who knew back then that modern Christians would be silly enough to start reading their scriptures literally when the ancients did not.

Jesus himself could not dumb down his lessons enough for this generation.

And those of his generation could not read or write!

I'm gonna have to keep an eye out for your threads.

There is hope in them.

You do not appear to trying to be engaged in the conversation with me. Would it even make an iota of difference to you if I prove the correct teaching of hell and judgment to clear up your incorrect image of God as a cruel tyrant. I don't wish to wasted a few hours of my own time putting the post together for you if you don't even want to answer my questions I have asked to help get to the bottom of belief-system and set them on solid foundations.


Since you appear to be able to present with a rational temperament, and also as you appear to be against the accepted authority of your faith, I personally , would be fascinated by your continued apologetics.

I will believe truth, however those who claim to have, make me suspicious.
Christians appear baffled by the reasons, why people would reject their dogma, and conclude it is because those who don't buy it, choose rather to be wicked. This is the self-righteous hypocrisy that brings them criticism.
Are we required to believe in Jesus, or are we required to just be good ?. What rational person would believe the words of a historically 'wicked' church in such matters, when the properties we need , are really just 'advanced mammalian altruism'.

On a spiritual level, I believe it is the very self centric notion of everlasting life, that is our purpose to overcome.
I choose to 'worship' life for what it is, and accept death for what it is.
Oblivion does not scare me.

God is a word I use when speaking to one who uses that word to describe their understanding of the deeper nature of reality - Rather than dogmatically state that there is no God.
Each follows their own path and in reality no religion is needed
Can you have a religion of one member
So what is religion but people gathering together under a set of ideas they hold as true
Yet religions are comprised of individuals
Take away all labels and all we have is people
People are people are people and all are individuals yet religion steals that from them
For religion is a Hierarchy and rules must be obeyed.
For if the foundations its people on which it is founded go their own way then the top of pyramid topples and loses power.
It so amuses me when you see some senile old Pope and he is supposed to be the agent of of an all powerful being.
Yet there is a way to understanding and peace of mind - it is the last place some look.
For we have been taught to look up to those place themselves above us and this is a lie for we do ourselves a disservice if we obey them for we insult our own soul
We are an Immortal soul in a mortal body and divine by this nature
All different expressions yet we are all equal

This Gnostic might be looking at another Gnostic. Right on.
Hierarchical churches are not required when we all have access to the Godhead from within.

Must be my lucky day.

Reminds me of a funny saying you have probably heard

"Great minds think alike - Fools seldom differ"
