Re: Samadhi -

After all, we dream, we awaken, we slip back into the dreamscape and on and on and on.... This condition is mirrored in the ancient Hindu concept of Brahman. God dreaming of being Ishvara and so too, Atman. My point is what? The One creates the many and is lost in the manifestation, so to speak. Th...

Re: Today is Rapture - 12:20am Israel -

Seems to me Jesus tried to tell us that "the kingdom" is in the present moment. If there's a rapture, it's now. 12:20AM Israel one day in May or October, or whenever, is just as nuts as the preacher who announces those dates. Back when Jesus was preaching there was only one concept of time: the line...

Thomas Merton was a Trappist. Here a Merton sample from a website that posts "quotes": If you want to study the social and political history of modern nations, study hell. In the last analysis, the individual person is responsible for living his own life and for "finding himself." If he persists in ...

Re: Today is Rapture - 12:20am Israel -

…I have had induced experiences where it was like I could almost ride a wave of energy, and fly. But no luck, LOL. There is this energy field it seems to me, and consciousness moves with it, but I am not sure if it is material. It seems almost like psychic energy. I was with a friend once dreaming ...

Re: Today is Rapture - 12:20am Israel -

I have to agree with Sphinx. Biologists are finally beginning to understand that the cells in our body are microorganisms that have lives "just like we do" -- they exhibit individuality, live in communities, communicate with each other, coordinate with each other, show awareness of light, sound, sme...

Curosity is not always a good thing on the net. I checked out one of Flappy's lill Wayne links. First I listened to him "sing" it; then I read the lyrics (see below); then I clicked on an odd link interleaved into the lyrics, seeming to point to where the lyrics came from. Actually, it was a malware...

Re: Nutmeg high....Terence Mckenna -

Mace is the powdered skin of the nutmeg seed, and so I'm leary about trying any part of it. Another problem... I think I'm hyper-senstive to drugs now: only takes a small hit to lift me off the deck. So, dosage is a problem. If I wanted to do nutmeg, I guess the smart move would be to start out with...

Re: Jesus -

Are we living in the age of apostasy predicted for the last days? In practice, most people are atheists, Indifference, and the spirit of "this world" prevail everywhere It seems that way, but perhaps there's a reason. Generally, bad trends have to get worse, and worse till they hit bottom. Then we'...

In many parts of the eastern US there are dwindling communities of unprogrammed Quakers. Like you Sphnx, they are into.. Silence It gives the light In mid-America and the far west there are congregations that call themselves Quakers, but most of them have paid preachers, who "program" their meetings...

Re: A Blog of Unusual Experiences - An Excerpt -

A great, gripping read, Beelzebozo. Thanks for sending it out to us! You mixed weed with your mushroom. Do you have any observations about what the weed might have contributed? I would suggest this: once you've passed through the eye of the needle; fallen into the chasm of death, experienced electri...
