Re: Do Republicans and pedophile priests share the same vile sexual morality.

Can’t watch the video right now but I think there’s research that shows that the main difference between (very) conservative and (very) progressive people is in how they feel about what’s unfamiliar. It seems to scare conservative people more easily while progressive folk tend to be just interested...

Re: Do Republicans and pedophile priests share the same vile sexual morality.

Lúthien I hear you and agree to an extent but if this link is true, then the more right one is in his thinking, brain dead thinking to me, then the propensity for the right wingers to lie about their true nature is quite strong as compared to the left. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLulcfyqrc0 Reg...

Do Republicans and pedophile priests share the same vile sexual morality.

Do Republicans and pedophile priests share the same vile sexual morality. I wrote this for the religious forum but it seems to be a question that I should have put to Republicans as they are exhibiting the same vile morality as pedophile priests and the religious who ignore morality to feed their tr...

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

Hi Gnosic Bishop, Apotheosis is a term given to those who experience enlightenment of true Gnosis. Some call it oneness or reaching that point of no thought. I found the oneness/universal consciousness but it was not a place of no thought. Ah thank you. Well, I certainly experienced something - or,...

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

I define ego as my consciousness. I carried it, so to speak, with me during my apotheosis so I do not think our egos can die or ever actually leave us. We might loose it under drugs but not really as we have it when coming out of drug intoxication. If they are the storage house of our perceptions, ...

Re: Why 'The Central Myths'?

Some medicine men and sages say that their DNA speaks to them but that is not really saying they experience the subatomic particles that they are made of. To be honest, I find neither the notion of being addressed by one's DNA, nor "experiencing their subatomic particles" particularly interesting o...

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

Neither do I. Then again, if you have yet to have had an apotheosis you are way above the rank and file. I don't understand that expression, I'm sorry :huh: (I'm not a native speaker, you see) - can you explain please? Apotheosis is a term given to those who experience enlightenment of true Gnosis....

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

In my case, I'm not as powerful as the Legendary shamans of Amazonia, who were reported to perform some of the things that Jesus also did, but, OTOH, I could probably kick any garden variety neo-Pagan "mage's" ass. Powerful in what way? Are you talking mental or physical in a body healing way. Rega...

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

Of that first one: I think that it refers to the realisation that the everyday reality is only a fabrication; that it is embedded within a larger reality in which concepts as "time" have a different meaning ; this also invalidates the concept of death (I forgot who it was: there's one ancient write...

You know: I would really like to know whether or not I am interpreting this text too shallow, because - if I am honest - I do not find it very difficult to make sense of at all.
Neither do I. Then again, if you have yet to have had an apotheosis you are way above the rank and file.

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

3) Jesus said, "If those who lead you say, 'See, the Kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the Kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you...

2) Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All." I have had two telepathic experiences. The first I have a witness/victim for and that confirms the reality of t...

1) And He said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death." It might be hard to make sense of all individual line without the context but I will give it a try. In esoteric or allegorical circles, some say that the bible and all so called holy books, are speaking a...

Re: The Gospel of Thomas Group Project

I would be interested in hearing more of these Amazonian Shamans. I have met a number of neo-pagans and while many are sincere, I always get the feeling that they are so individualistic that they tend to just dig shallow wells that don't truly hit water, yet when it rains it's cause for great excit...
