The Effulgent Light is More Powerful than Any Shadow.

(Welcome to Origami. I know I mentioned something earlier about having something to say when I got around to this but… the truth is that I forgot whatever it was so… moving right along.)

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Hypocrisy is one of those things that always interest me because there are so many ways it can manifest and here is one of them. Now… I am all for the ethical treatment of animals but how many of these whining Political Correctness Junkies eat meat? You may be sure that conditions for livestock are far worse than they are for elephants and let us consider the amount of African elephants being machine-gunned by ivory poachers. Let us consider all the leather products these people wear and all the other by products that are manufactured by soulless corporations that hide their poisons and garbage by never listing them or listing them as something else because of what they extracted from the primary source. Hypocrisy is pretty hard to avoid in this day and age because it is not always easy to spot it for what it is because of the costumes it wears to conceal what it is beneath them. Self-Righteousness is not the least of these. The more we rely on self-righteousness and justification, the more likely we are to be hypocrites.

Much of the time we don’t understand why we do the things we do and say the things we say. It’s like we’ve all got some shadow soul of a hidden Lady Mary from Downton Abbey, acting through us or a Thomas Barrow who behaves in every kind of despicable fashion, because of self-loathing. Self-Loathing is much more wide spread than we might think because of the hidden lives generated out of all those private vices, so readily available in these times. Of course, the lines of morality are blurred or erased on most occasions these days and there are even large and well-funded movements that applaud every vice and weakness as if they were virtues; so it seems in these times of seeming and scheming. Political Correctness is the chief hypocrisy of the age and one of the major byproducts of Satanism. The reason that Satanism employs political correctness is because of the ways that it skewers reality, twisting it into unrecognizable shapes. As for what reality might actually be, to paraphrase a judge; “I couldn’t tell you what it is but I know it when I see it.” From this we get that archetypal ‘slippery slope’. The various products that act much like skis and snowboards and all the rest, are those vehicles of moral relativism that make your downward passage so much swifter and you can see it all around you. Some of it seems innocuous almost but is in fact extremely dangerous.

Danger is made far more dangerous by being made to appear not only safe but desirable as well. The biggest obstacle to the public being able to see what is really going on is their refusal to doubt the reports of their manipulated and intoxicated senses and to believe what they are told by those in various positions of authority, who operate from all those avenues of contemporary influence, generated out of vampire covens in politics, the economic sector, entertainment and whatever else there is. The blandishments of these industries are the source of the majority of the manipulations and intoxications. The primary tool of black magicians is misdirection and distraction. Most cannot see these efforts in operation and so they are subjugated by them. Even the most transparent lies and deceptions easily deceive a population that has been dumbed down to just above the awareness of livestock.

Perhaps I should not speak of them so. Perhaps this denigration is undeserved. After all, people seem to be able to function in a conscious manner a lot of the time. They get up. They dress and feed themselves. They go to work. They talk about political candidates and football games. They go to restaurants and movies theaters and engage in witty repartee; at least some of them are able to do this. Yet… they will support venomous liars who have, time and time again, told them the same lies and defaulted on every promise and yet they continue to believe these lies and to support these liars, like the current crop of political aspirants who are ALL vile prevaricators and who also engage in perversities and crimes that the public is generally unaware of. They agree to promote and support all manner of horrible actions upon those whom they purport to serve.

They support terrible wars brought about for no other reason than to generate profits for bankers and investors, who are among the most reprehensible monsters who have ever lived. The majority of them are brought into a simulation of life through the schematic of a specific genetic blueprint and the truth is this is easily seen by rudimentary research. Battalions of doomed souls also come into being to serve the will of the bankers, who are the direct offspring of the king of the infernal realm. Surely the presentation of this here seems a bit prosaic if not the product of a warped imagination, not to mention… dated. However, all of this is provably and demonstrably true. None of it can be effectively refuted, it is demonstrably provable. Yet… yet… regardless of how obvious it all is, most people refuse to see or admit it and will even defend the psychopathic behavior of demons in human form. They will even defend them when they act upon these very ones defending them. They put photographs of their dead children on the living room walls and mantles and talk about their great sacrifice for their countries, when they were nothing more than cannon fodder for bankers and those employed by bankers.

The entire world is under a grievous spell and the direct and indirect result of this, both short and long terms is, suffering and death. This is observable. One does need a certain amount of time lapse vision, which is the result of the possession of an objective awareness. Subsequently, this is why one of the main results of the spell, is an applied subjectivity, where what is not can be made to appear as what is and what is can be made to appear as what is not. Turn things upside down and backwards and put them up on movie and television screens, on billboards and bus benches and it doesn’t take long before it looks normal and not even what it bent out of shape to make it this way …was normal to begin with.

There is some peculiar power that is given to a few, which allows them to see through all of these deceptions and another peculiar power that makes it possible for everyone else to be taken in by them. We have read the private thoughts of any number of masters of the art of life and all of them have expressed their frustration at being unable to communicate what they know to others. There is some barrier there that only a few seem able to pass by. Apparently this is the result of Samskaras that veil the true sight of humanity from what is actually taking place, behind the relentless onslaught of appearances, which seem to be …but which are not. These veils are multiple and composed of degrees of thickness and can only be burned away by acts of selflessness and devotion. In times of rampant self-interest, generated by materialism, practitioners of selflessness and devotion are few and far between. This is why the true tenets of religion, philosophy and ageless wisdom are subverted into base hungers and perversions. It is everywhere to be seen and yet it remains unseen because when everyone is doing it, it all appears natural. So it is that we have come to what seems to be an event horizon of collective extinction. This is how it looks and this is how it may be and yet… it could just as well be otherwise too. Time will tell and we shall see.

Our problems have one continuing source that is expressed through a variety of agents and mediums. In the end and all the way there, there is only one successful practice that will result in liberation and that is self-inquiry. It can take various shapes of expression but self-inquiry is the source of them all, whether it be devotion or selflessness or any other because all of them are the fruit of self-inquiry and true self-inquiry will result in true self-discovery because the author of all things, resides in every one of us and that is why evil is doomed and why all the expressions of evil are doomed, regardless of whatever lie they are a manifestation of, behind every shadow of evil is the light. The light is more powerful than any shadow and all of them will be banished from our being, once we have uncovered the effulgent light within. Once that happens we become the light of the world and no shadow can approach ever again. Surely this is a more valuable form of employment than any other that we can imagine here.

'The primary tool of black magicians is misdirection and distraction.’ I see the game as well Vis. I believe dark energies are destroying my brothers and sisters and sisters who have awakened, by getting them to breach God’s 10 commandments through sinning against those who are yet to awaken. I see how evil works, and how deceptive it can be, evil does not just capitalise on your weaknesses it also capitalises on one’s strengths, by perverting those strengths to an evil end.


Vis - 'This is why the true tenets of religion, philosophy and ageless wisdom are subverted into base hungers and perversions.’


Even after all this time Man has not clued onto the fact that those who serve the dark energies always infiltrate organisations, work their way to the top, and then slowly lead that group of people astray. This is done by uniting brave words with evil deeds and using seduction to entice people into sexual relationships and pagan rituals. This practice is the doctrine of Balaam, known for its promotion of falsehood for financial reasons. Sound familiar??

'One trait of false teachers in the church is that they attempt to turn Christian liberty into a “freedom” to be promiscuous (see Romans 14:1–5).

'http://www.gotquestions.org/doctrine-of-Balaam.html


All our institutions end up going down this path for this very reason!!


Vis - '...the fruit of self-inquiry and true self-inquiry will result in true self-discovery because the author of all things, resides in every one of us and that is why evil is doomed…’


This is why the inward journey is the path to truth, the Holy Spirit and the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth, because it helps us identify and disable our own demons. This is why evil is so busy creating a myriad of distractions in this world with its shock and awe campaign, because while you are spending all your time dealing with the outside world, trying to fix what you think needs fixing, you are not doing what you need to do to elevate your energy enough to get out of here.


Then you can 'become the light of the world and no shadow can approach’ (Vis).


OR you can continue to be one of the sheep who have to be governed!! (Notice how satan has made humanity breach God’s 10 commandments by making people bow to its institutions? Notice how the people who work for the government are as enslaved as the people they have enslaved! CHRIST DOES NOT TAKE SLAVES, HE FREES THEM, SATAN ENSLAVES!!

“To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so. To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be place under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality."

General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century, translated by John Beverly Robinson (London: Freedom Press, 1923), pp. 293-294.”


Do people really believe servants of God would do such perverse things!! Did Christ? Or did Christ stand up to the people who were doing these things??

Vis, I hope that you can remember whatever-it-is that you forgot. When that happens to me, I just ask for it to be remembered and release it. Then, 'ping' it pops-up out of nowhere, hours or days later...

As far as the public not being able to be awakened, I see it from two aspects (outside of all-God wanting it that way): First, like it or not, we are in a planetary thought-form. You can think of it from a Rupert Sheldrake angle or from a more esoteric viewpoint. Either way, it takes energy and concentration not to be pulled into any 'group consciousness'. Plus, if you have no idea of your true nature or state, there is no way to say, "I am not that." The pull of the Normal.

Second, there is the matter of Horror. To be awakened is to be horrified. (In this day and age and planet.) Most people cannot exist in a daily experience of Horror. It is much easier to be in slumberland. That is also why there is a violent response to attempts at awakening. The subconscious knows exactly what being-awake feels like. "No Way!"

I should add a third. The Shunning. To be awakened is to be shunned (by those asleep). Again, most people cannot handle the emotional impact. It is devastating. At least sleeping, you will be cuddled and accepted within a group...

"The entire world is under a grievous spell..." I do wonder how literal that is. Back when I was an active SF reader, I was an Andre Norton fan. (Mary Alice Norton; she began writing in a more patriarchal age.) She wrote a great deal on telepathy, and how any Grade 1 telepath would soon be agreeing with a Grade 2 telepath. (Writing about 'applied telepathy' has fallen out of favor. Hmmm.)

Taking this up the consciousness scale, I see any danger from negative Higher Powers as less from the physical side and more from the telepathic side. There may be (and probably are) Beings that can introduce a 'psychic background' to a whole planet, if they so wish. To be long-term effective, this Being should be outside of SpaceTime. (Hmmm. Beginning to sound familiar.)

My way to combat the above is to find other, perhaps higher, Beings. Perhaps with other 'values'. Yak with them about our 'situation'. If convinced of the 'merit of our case', a Grade 88 telepath would soon be agreeing with a Grade 90 telepath...

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

"The sorcerers of ancient Mexico reasoned that man must have been a complete being at one point, with stupendous insights, feats of awareness that are mythological legends nowadays. And then everything seems to disappear, and we have now a sedated man." ~ Don Juan, The Active Side of Infinity

Consider the following in terms of a higher (negative) Being with telepathic and/or empathic powers:

'The Predator Mind' by Carlos Castaneda

The spiritual teacher, Don Juan, of the Carlos Castaneda books, speaking to Carlos Castaneda:

"The sorcerers of ancient Mexico were the first ones to see those fleeting shadows, so they followed them around. They saw them as you’re seeing them, and they saw them as energy that flows in the universe. And they did discover something transcendental. They discovered that we have a companion for life...

We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so. You have arrived, by your effort alone, to what the shamans of ancient Mexico called the topic of topics. I have been beating around the bush all this time, insinuating to you that something is holding us prisoner. Indeed we are held prisoner! This was an energetic fact for the sorcerers of ancient Mexico."

"Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of beliefs, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and egomaniacal."

"...the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous manoeuver – stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist. A horrendous manoeuver from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind."

There is much more to this article, which needs to be read and internalized in order for us not to remain victims.

I wanted to point-out 'hmmm' similarities between some woo-woo experiences of mine and the above article (which I just ran-across):

Don Juan: "They took over because we are food for them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance. Just as we rear chickens in chicken coops, the predators rear us in human coops. Therefore, their food is always available to them."

"[Don Juan] explained that sorcerers see infant human beings as strange, luminous balls of energy covered from the top to the bottom with a glowing coat - something like a plastic cover - that is adjusted tightly over their cocoon of energy. He said that that glowing coat of awareness was what the predators consumed, and that when a human being reached adulthood, all that was left of that glowing coat of awareness was a narrow fringe that went from the ground to the top of the toes. That fringe permitted mankind to continue living, but only barely."

"By playing on our self-reflection, which is the only point of awareness left to us, the predators create flares of awareness that they proceed to consume in a ruthless, predatory fashion. They give us inane problems that force those flares of awareness to rise, and in this manner they keep us alive in order for them to be fed with the energetic flare of our pseudo-concerns."

---

I (Ray) had been aware of various Beings popping-in and 'running my anxieties'. (Usually at night.) This would be in long, almost cartoonish 'loops' that would have emotions far and beyond those of normal life. (Generating 'food'?) If I noticed these 'clues', I would break out of the cycle, contact Higher Self, and - lo and behold - somebody was 'playing me'. (They then got Cleaned.) Variations of this had gone-on for as long as I was aware of them.

Recently, during one of these Cleanings, Higher Self 'propelled' me outwards and then-through another Being's aura (or at least a protective zone). For a short time, it felt absolutely terrible. Then, I was inside it. Unexpectedly, some part of me 'snatched back' something that was Mine. The Being wailed that it could not 'hold itself together' without it. But, Higher Self withdrew me and that 'possession'.

Later, the story unfolded that - many lifetimes ago - I was almost 'into' an incarnation. I was 'wearing' a kind of protective 'something' that kept me from 'enmeshing' or losing-myself in the mass-consciousness. Visually, it looked like if you took a huge orange, separated it into many segments, and then layered these segments vertically all-around your energy body. The 'color' of these segments was gold-ish.

This Being approached me on the 'way down'. It's segments were dilapidated through uncaring. It asked to borrow mine, temporarily. Being naive, I gave the segment-apparatus to it. Later, when I asked for it back, I was refused. Somehow, I was not able to get to it. (That unpleasant field?) Without it, I quickly lost myself into group consciousness. (In subsequent days from grabbing it back, I 'tracked' this Being. It was losing it's 'grip' and lapsing-downwards towards mass consciousness.)

The main 'difference' that I have noted with this segment-apparatus 'on' is a lessened-sense of 'pushing and pulling'. More 'quietness'. No 'noise'. An even 'being'.

If I compare my experiences with Don Juan's explanations, there are uncomfortable 'commonalities'...

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

Carlos Castaneda was an admitted fraud. Probably some Psy-Op agent, in reality, planting some very useful-to-the-PTB memes, while reaping heaps of experimental psychological data. Be extremely careful what you believe, yo. Our imagination can play many tricks on us, for real.

We have to let go of this idea that the Earth is a special place, and that it must work out here. The Universe is huge, way, way, way, far beyond even the most superhuman attempts at imagination. There is, at all moments, a great number of stars and planets dying, and likewise being born. IT is an gigantinormous pulsing, breathing and living "thing". There is nothing special about Earth, for all it's astounding beauty and our love for it. Holding attachments to anything on this plane is bound to end in suffering. Don't "worship the creation in place of The Creator".

It is interesting to read "The Vision of Visions" in the Bhagavad-Gita in this regards.

On a smaller scale, it seems that there has been at least 1 higher-than-now-tech civilization here on Earth, and that one didn't make it. The tree is rotten. Let if fall. Only question is whether the BRICS is not more of the same. I mean: False-flagging Putin (Moscow apartment bombings), India's Slaughter-Modi, China's oppression-central, South Africa and Brazil, please, are obviously corrupt, too. We will just have to wait and see, but I wouldn't hold much hope for it, qua "worshipping the creation in place of the Creator". I like Karens assessment: anoyone who forces their will or uses coercion to get one to join are not the good "guys". Back to Master-J: "by their works ye shall know them".

Visible, as the Buddha said, nothing will erase your good deeds. Having only your words to go by, I think you've come a long way in this life. Don't worry, friend. Keep on keepin' on, but, if I may interject a piece of advice, take it easy, too.

Dear Ray,

These dark entities that you speak of are what Christians refer to as demons, and Muslims refer to as jinn. Modern man refer to them as aliens. The only defence against these creatures of the dark is your righteousness, because it provides you with a spiritual suit of armour. This is what Christ was showing us, how to arm ourselves, so when the gates of Hell are unleashed we will be able to protect ourselves. These entities feed on one's negativity, which is why such emphasis is placed on not indulging in the seven deadly sins, in both ancient belief systems, and the more modern one's.

These creatures are here to take your soul, and that is what all of this is about. Defend your soul to the detriment of all else! We are all walking through the valley of the shadow of death and the only way through is to walk exactly as Christ told us to. Christ shows us how to walk this gauntlet.

God bless ALL.

Peace be with you.

I give thanks to my mentor, brother, and hero, Jesus Christ, who has shown me the truth, the way, and the life. I stand along side my brother Jesus and pledge allegiance to my God in Heaven, the Alpha and Omega. Forever and ever. Amen

Lots of Luv Kazz

Anonymous, I know about the 'controversy' around Castaneda. I have even read one book where they showed his 'location' descriptions did not match up with flora/fauna of that area. Nevertheless, something in his writings indicates that he was in touch with the 'sorceror' world. Perhaps he really had a 'Don Juan'. Anyway, that is how I see/feel it. Thanks for the 'caution'...

I had an interesting night, last night. I had picked-out a quote from the above article as being central to the issue:

Don Juan: "There’s nothing that you and I can do about it. All we can do is discipline ourselves to the point where they will not touch us. Sorcerers understand discipline as the capacity to face with serenity odds that are not included in our expectations. For sorcerers, discipline is an art; the art of facing infinity without flinching; not because they are strong and tough, but because they are filled with awe. Sorcerers say that discipline makes the glowing coat of awareness unpalatable to the [predator]. The result is that the predators become bewildered."

So, I tried to 'empath' what this meant. For me, this came down to being in full touch with as many 'layers' of Higher Self as possible, when confronting the (telepathic) predator. Fortunately, the highest level of 'bad guy' (predator) that I had previously-found was 88-level, while the highest point of individual consciousness that humans have (Hindus call it 'The Atman') is at 91-level. So, theoretically, we out-class it.

I think that my 'rummaging around' in the 'sorceror' area must have caused a predator visit (or two). What was interesting is that I did not have to 'do' anything. Just by calmly extending my 'presence' (via Higher Self) to levels higher than the predator, the predator seemed to be stymied. I heard an actual, long 'cry of rage' from whomever that was. Then, it departed. (Two different occasions.)

After this, another - unexpected - thing happened. Some part of 'me' started directing attention to a 'group'. They turned out to be sorcerors. There was a very long, intense 'conversation', which was just above my ability to sort-out. Somehow, these were people I knew from elder times. No visuals, unfortunately.

Today, I feel 'expanded', somehow. Something has changed. Very interesting!

(I thought some readers might like to hear this 'tale', so thanks for your patience...)

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

I am doing some Bowie revisionism and appreciation (some new sheet music has assisted this to no end, those chords).. but was he just an entertainer, was he MKULTRA/Tavistock style part of the Great Disruption, or a Liberator... and so it has been these are such influences that a vunerable one such as I ( and the rest of us in No Such Thing as Society, at least NoMore -thanks Maggie T, Prime Ministrator) have been influenced by..
But the lyrics... a poets telling it how it is?, BUT, mostly via the unconscious, or devious plots to influence us using Psycho-Magic... or just plain popularist treat them mean (or ambiguous) keep them keen (and buying records) or saying things without saying them (and getting away with it), as in hide it out in the open?
All glass shalf full or empty considerations.
I do know I always smelled the rats, and I am much better at awareness these days (various reasons, not discluding health improvements and particular health required vitamins and gut fix), but I also know most people are just plain lazy and busy (or distracted) and What You Are Up Against and The BIG LIE, all these count towards their dispositions (arse on Couches, elbows on bars, dis position, dat position). The sheep did have and require pastoral care (for better or worse, but good care was there with the conformity and rituals).
What Bowie, and most other Entertainers , didn't do, was mention the Jew. Did they know or care?
There was more discussion and awareness of the London Money Kings a hundred years ago, before 2 wars and depressions shut them up, or 'retired them' on the killing fields.
What does it matter, well we shall see, indeedy.

(hats off to Karen esp., today ... good stuff).

@Ray and all.
I would take Casteneda with a dollop of amanita muscaria. For me, again, 'homo narrandus'; man the storyteller. To embellish one's story with psychedelics from a 'brujo'? Sorcery, witches, invisibility, the "egg", and the urge to 'cosmic heroism'? It's an ancient story. Wouldn't be incredible if the Titans were awakening within Tartarus? While being cognizant of the greater recurring themes within my life, and the story that I've been weaving. I also realize how 'spellbound' I've been with other people's stories. The never ending story that has no beginning. Look at the 9/11 "story" and its attendant misery. Which was just another chapter from "their" playbook. Those of us who appreciate Les began our 'story' together through appreciation and resonance with...words. I know I state the bluntly obvious. Appreciate your own story. Embellish and experiment. Under ideal circumstances (and no offence to the internet) we would be sharing the spoken word, and eye contact, etc. Les' 'stories' have also impacted me with deep truths. And you? Have I disagreed, been contrarian, etc. ? Certainly. Amazing things happen within these blogs, these chapters.

torus: I find your first few lines of your 6:14:00 AM post to be self-grandiose and insulting to the entire 'line' of ancient strivers. You are either trying to stir the pot or really have no clue. If the former, what do you get out of doing it? If the latter, you remind me of an intellectual 'jouster' who is afraid to get your feet wet.

Before this, I had only read the first of Castaneda's books (long ago). I actually tried some of his 'experiments', like finding the place in a room of greatest power for you. They work. If you are afraid to dip your toe in or are just insensitive to energies, that does not make either Castaneda or his compatriots 'wrong'.

That's kind of funny; I just got an amusing 'flash' out of the aethers that you reminded 'somebody' of Castaneda right at the start of his journey/tale...

P.S. For the record, all my woo-woo 'stuff' is done without any herbal or pharmaceutical 'helpers'. I need access to various 'states' at any time and in any place.

@Ray.
Interesting. You of course realize that your speculations say more about you than anyone else. Feel free to embellish a trivial and incidental character named 'torus' as you see fit. I have ingested Peyote, LSD, etc. yet all you can muster is an admission that you haven't stirred in that psychedelic pot. More power to you Ray! I'm more qualified (?) to comment on the alleged Don Juan's alleged modus operandi than yourself. Why not admit that YOU haven't got a clue? Why not turn this into a pissing match? Although I detect some paranoia on your part, again, embellish and experiment as I have encouraged you to do. What "pot" am I stirring Ray? Sheeeesh man, get a grip.
Be well

@Ray and all.
As I said, under ideal circumstances we would be exchanging eye contact and the spoken word. The written word is also quite good. Which is why modern "education" denigrate in favour of a monotone, flat screen font/text.
I keep my private hand written journals alive with the pen.
I think that you misinterpret 'homo narrandus'. I'm not denigrating man the storyteller. And who knows, maybe the cosmic mudra that I and many others form while sitting zazen is actually reducing our "egg" (Don Juan's "egg" or oval energy/auric field) energy and rendering us complacent. Suitable vehicles for demonic possession. A "fundamentalist" Christian that I know thinks that's so. She really has no choice in the matter though as her fear of hell and anything that runs counter to her indoctrination keeps her....on the path. Ahem....She of course believes in "the greatest story ever told". I believe that it's a story. I don't believe that I've been granted one chance and one chance only to come to know the "truth" or God. In that particular story, only the past 2000 years really mean anything. Rendering every person and story prior to Jesus' incarnation as superfluous and obviously hell bound as the path to redemption had yet to appear. Blood sacrifice; suffering as atonement, etc. It's all so occult to me. It's all so....Semitic. And that Semitic cauldron is only beginning to heat up. So the story goes.

Karen Norman said...

Torus,

Sad to say your Christian friend is not taking much on board if she is fearful, because we are told "though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death I SHALL FEAR NO EVIL, for thou art with me!"

That's the whole point, a Christian does not fear Hell they just Love their Father in Heaven, because he is with us in our hearts, when we wake up and when we go to sleep, and at any other time in the day if we a mindful enough to commune with the Divine.

A fearful Christian is like a well without water, because it doesn't matter how deep you go there is nothing to draw on.

I am a Christian and I don't know anyone who would refer to me as 'fearful', crazy maybe, but never fearful. I ride with some pretty rugged customers too. Christian, like many other terms, is a generalisation that covers a huge amount of people, many who have next to nothing in common. Christ himself tells us that not all those who claim to be Christians are!

YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR ACTS. The Christians in the Bible were eaten by lions and crucified for what they believed in, doesn't sounded fearful to me, sounds like they are the bravest souls on the planet, because they were willing to die for what they believed in, big difference to the cowardly act of killing for what you believe in!!
