Coincidence… an accident or arrangement?

 Max DeJong  Comments Off on Coincidence… an accident or arrangement?
Mar 152005
 

This article is shared by Max DeJong I myself do not believe in ‘coincidences’. I think of them more as ‘coinciding incidences’. Carl Jung described this phenomenon as ‘synchronicity’ and I quote: “Meaningful coincidences are unthinkable as pure chance–the more they multiply and the greater and more exact the correspondence is… they can no longer […]

This article is shared by Max DeJong Real Love is limited to “souled” beings only. Replica’s cannot generate “love” themselves so they steal it away from you in order to regain power (over you!)

This article is shared by Max DeJong How can we learn to improve if we do not learn from our mistakes? How can we learn from our mistakes, if we are not willing to make them? No one is perfect, but no one is a fool either.

This article is shared by Max DeJong No matter who you are, what you do or what you have, you have a basic goal in life which is specific to each one of us. Failing to know what that goal is will make you liable to loop into life’s birth/death cycle and karma has nothing […]

This article is shared by Max DeJong Money itself has no power or advantages whatsoever. It is the commonly agreed upon illusion that it represents value, therefore it was given power and we all agreed to sustain its status. Logic declares that one piece of green paper of the same substance cannot outweigh the value […]

Spirituality: a scientific perspective

 C.B. Basak  Comments Off on Spirituality: a scientific perspective
Oct 032004
 

The scientific approach to spirituality as presented here by Mr. C. B. Basak shows there’s a natural efficiency in being kind to others. In terms of thermodynamics it makes more sense to let others be in peace than to disturb them while doing the work that needs to be done.

I’m here to learn, by teaching what I’ve chosen to believe. The teaching or demonstration itself is unavoidable, the belief is not. My perception depends on the cobwebs in my mind. Without a structure of ideas perception is impossible.

I’m not the keeper of my holy mind; the Holy Spirit is. It’s irresponsible of me to assume responsibility for thoughts that are not of God, and therefore are not real. I choose what I believe to be true, but only when my choice is made under the guidance of the Holy Spirit will it […]

don't make it real when it isn't

 Stan's meditations  Comments Off on don't make it real when it isn't
Jul 192004
 

All my problems are the result of taking one tiny mad idea seriously: that I could be separate from God – the only reality. This thought of separation gave rise to the illusion of the ego, which seems to have a mind of its own, but it’s only a tiny part of the mind, filled […]

One might well ask whether our thoughts are real. If they are not real, it’s no problem to see them change in the course of time, true to the fleeting nature of dreams. If they are real, however, they cannot change at all and will last forever, true to the changeless nature of reality. If […]

Illusions have to be forgiven at the level on which they seemingly occur. That’s why enlightenment cannot be postponed to some kind of afterlife. It has to happen while one is still being tempted to judge appearances as real. The mind cannot let go of illusions to which it’s not being exposed.

This essay is shared by Remez Sasson Thinking is usually a mixture of words, sentences, mental images and sensations. Thoughts are visitors in the central station of the mind. They come, stay a while and then disappear making space for other thoughts. Some of these thoughts stay longer, gain power and affect the life of […]

This article is shared by Guy Finley The beauty of Love is that She is already within everything; which means that there is nothing that we are drawn to know by Love’s invitation that won’t grant us for our journey itself the gift of a greater relationship with Love. Here are some ideas how to […]

This story is shared by Alexandra Reynolds Dreams are spirit roads leading to contemplation… In my dream, I was standing in a crowded bus, dressed in a very expensive black leather suit and black hat. I had a lot of make-up on, which is out of character for me. There was this little girl who […]

Nov 302003
 

This meditation is shared by Guy Finley We must not fear these wild pulsations of hope-filled feelings too deep to hold . . . for they have an accord with themselves, and their own path to follow. These sometimes too strong stirrings of that unbearable wish for a compassion that can embrace all of creation […]

This essay is shared by Guy Finley Starting life over is something we must do every second. We must not wait until we want to start over because at that point wanting to start life over is only our futile wish to avoid what has already happened. We are tied to whatever we avoid, so […]

Oct 192003
 

For only one infinitesimal moment my mind was astray, fell from Heaven, instantly projected the entire universe, complete with eons of evolution, ages of bloody history, life in a body that started dying from birth… and took it all for real. The illusion of consciousness was born.
