Comments on: enlightened or what? the practical spirituality of unconditional love Tue, 27 Jul 2010 11:12:14 +0000 hourly 1 By: xantheus Fri, 27 May 2005 07:21:36 +0000 stan, i was moved by your post of may 26, enlightened or what? i point out your phrase “…the one and only reality that is God.

i also believe this, so much so, i do not see the possibility or even the notion of “separate” or separativeness exists. If indeed god is the only reality, there is nothing “outside” of God. All form, formation forming, all instances, ideas of future forms, etc, are all and already contained. This thinking of a separate state is as though you are contradicting yourself. Where is this “outside of or separate from”? This is planetary thinking. (There is a celestial body, such as earth spinning in space/galaxy, etc. Even continuing to universal, even cosmic thinking (universes within universe) must extend beyond to eonic thinking, as Dane Rudhyar points out in his book, “An Astrological Mandala, The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolic Places.

Eonic thinking means that we are all and always connected, however “distant” or unknown this “feels”. When one begins to think in this way, one can understand the “words of wisdom” i got from one of my spirit teachers i call The Grandmother. She said to me one day, “There are no pieces missing. There is nothing that needs fixing, except your attitude that it does!”

Now, i can begin to accept The Salmon people’s response” E’ee cahn croosh, e’ee wah, Mi-wah, rik-shay ( this is the way it is. So? Thank you Creator God, anyway!”

I like the humor in both! I hope this response will enlighten you further into that feeling of connectedness i feel (especially, now that i have found such thoughtful people like yourself at this great website. Aho!
