Absolute religious drivel (IMO).
I am quite thankful that there is no such thing as this anthropomorphic, spiteful, primitive and insane god, outside of religious delusion. His word
seems to suspiciously echo what we might expect from some ancient uptight and illiterate religious nazi. He sounds like the god of sexual repression.
About as tolerant, compassionate and intelligent as your average viper.
Ever had a truly original thought regarding spirituality? What is consciousness? What is a simple thought, where does it originate, what is an
emotion? How do they work, do they work together? Do you put thoughts there, or do they just appear on there own? Could you stop them if you wanted
to? Do you have deep understanding of your relationships? What is the mind? What is compassion, ever studied yourself everyday to see it in action, to
see how it operates, to see if you even have it? Take a year, as much time as you need, reflect on it every day?
How does matter become alive? How does it become conscious? What exactly is matter? What is energy? What does science say on it, what do you say from
your own observations? Why are some creatures (not just humans) capable of great selfless virtue? Evolution? Why can there be such conflict between
our instincts and what we know to be right? Do you love anyone, hate anyone? Why? Do you forgive easily, or does it cause hurt, ever studied it in
yourself? Ever tried meditation or discipline from some other tradition, just out of curiosity, to see what happens, as a way to gain any possible
knowledge of yourself or the universe? Perhaps none of these things matter? What is truth, from your own observations and experience, aside from what
your book says? Is it within, come from outside? Is there a truth at all? Where, how, why?
Ever wondered how people fall for cults and their doctrines? The processes and psychology involved? Ever taken the time to find out? It is one of the
most fascinating subjects of all.
Do you search on your own, whether it conflicts with your book or not, or just accept what is given to you in this very "iffy" book of pseudo wisdom
