Wisdom in Daily Life

Spirituality is not all about communing with holy beings, or having the perfect guru or teacher.  It is about seeking deep connections with reality and making for a better world, for yourself and all around you.Regardless of the belief we advertise most of us have the same needs.  We eat, sleep, have friends, and many of us have some kind of job.  Put all of these together and we have more than enough challenge in life. We would like to hear about how you cope and bring a lot of the ideas we…See More

"Yes, I know. I still found them too complicated. I would use ASCII because it is already the most common system and probably derive lot of vocabulary from English.   Well, this is just practice for my other half of brain. "

Universal language

Inspired by conversation in SD group I therefore blog. Blog blog.Years ago I had a bad flu and was lying in bed in fever listening to tv-news about EU parliament with all these huge piles of papers when everything has to be in different langugaes. In my feverish mind I thought I'll make a new language for EU. Or, why not, a universal language.Ideas I had:It's grammar should be as straightforward as possible. No exceptions to rules after another.All the letters in alphabet should have only one…See More

Reading Lists - Getting Up To Speed

Sometimes we want to learn a subject and always the hardest part is just getting the basics.I had a recent experience here because I posted something that ended up showing that I was not even basically competent on the subject.  Rather than to feel guilty or upset over it I decided that perhaps a better way of handling it (as well as a number of other blind spots)  was to poll other members who have expertise in areas to give some idea of what books or other media is essential to getting a…See More

Mika Perala replied to Jon Fergus's discussion What is Desire?
"To me, the reason to desire, the essential cause of it, is either an actual or a perceived lack of something (whether inward or outward), thus leading to a 'urge' for that something. I am now referring to what I feel when I'm…"

Mika Perala replied to Jon Fergus's discussion What is Desire?
"What is the difference between desire and urge to create? Or urge to express oneself? Expressing oneself comes from within and desire is longing something from outside?   "

The only other book of Paasilinna's I've found translated into English is called The Howling Miller. I have a friend who is half Ojibwa and half Finnish and calls himself a Findian. He is very much like the main character in The Year of the Hare. I would invite him to this website, but he is more a fan of Crowley than of HPB.

I was ten years old when the double sided hit Hound Dog and Don't be Cruel was released and it was the first 45 RPM record I bought. Then I had to convince my parents to get a player. When his Christmas album came out it became something of a scandal, but my parents loved it. I still can hear him sing It'll be a blue, blue Christmas without you. Maybe Elivis's mantra is: Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.

Yes, Elvis read The Tibetan Book of the Dead and Autobiography of a Yogi.
