Work Experience Jobs

Every country and religion in the world expresses the importance of giving unto others with a generous heart. Many people limit their charity work to simply writing a check, which is important too.

However, time and effort are equally important and can make the difference in someone's outlook on life. Young people in particular seem to be stepping up to the plate more than ever before, offering

their services through school, church, missions, and family programs. There are volunteer… Continue

The story of a revitalized theosophical lodge

As any group therapist can tell you, group work is complicated. The history of the churches too can be read as a continuing story of growing and shrinking congregations. One of the reasons new congregations often grow is not just that they offer an approach that works for the time, but also that they're simply, being new, more open to new people. Their group structure isn't fixed yet and so it's easier for them to accommodate and welcome new people.…

It's hard to love someone who hurts your children

My son, Adi is on a bus home from the Eastern shore of VA.. We live in Michigan, and there are NO jobs to be found for love nor money. We sent Adi to Va. to live w/ my sister and brother. There, Adi would be likely employed at either Tyson or Purdue. For some unknown reason, my siblings were disrespectful to my son. They made him feel so bad that he would call me at night crying. He is a 24 year old man. He had a 10 o'clock curfew. No reason, just "My way or the…

The future...

Just came across a wiki page i wanted to share with everyone about the predictions made by Ray Kurzweil.

Naturally these particular two predictions are dated quite far off so im not concerned with accuracy. what i am interested in is both the probability of such events taking place and how we relate to the particular nature and possibility of these events today. irrespective of whether these events happen or not, they give us a very unique perspective into what the mind is…

Modern Buddhism an abomination?

Modern Buddhism an abomination?



See http://www.attan.com/



Some nice quotes (and this is not even the sharpest):



"To quote the late metaphysician, Dr. A.K. Coomaraswamy: “Buddhism is most famous today for everything it originally never taught.” As such attan.com does not advocate nor endorse Theravada & Hinayana, nor any form of Mahayana, Vajrayana, and certainly not Zen. None of these sectarian creations are original to earliest… Continue

Simplicity

Can someone enlighten me, because so far, the thesophical network has completley confused me, people use perculiar language, which sounds like they dont really know what they are talking about? Simplicity is golden, and if people are here to share ideas, then surely the most important thing is to be understood, rather than ego boosting, and suedo intellect crunching! I feel completley disheartened.

8 March Women and Peace

March 8:International Day of Women: Women as Peacemakers

Rene Wadlow*



It is only when women start to organize in large numbers that we become a political force, and begin to move towards the possibility of a truly democratic society in which every human being can be brave, responsible, thinking and diligent in the struggle to live at once freely and unselfishly



March 8 is the International Day of Women and thus a time to analyse the specific role of women in bringing… Continue

What or who are these UFOs?

There is tons of evidence that UFOs are real. I am completely baffled as to the identity of them. They never hurt anyone, unless you're the poor soul who had to undergo an anal-probe! I am not scared, 'cause I believe that the Brothers of Light will never allow we puny Earthlings to be harmed by an outside influence. Are they the new 6th Root Race?

Please, let me know what you think.

What do you think 2112 is all about?

I think that the Winter solstice in 2012 is simply the

changing of a cycle. I feel that it will be a change for the better. It is the holiest day of the year, so Someone's probably going to be initiated into the highest level, or very near it. We sure do need this.

There are so many young people with 'old' eyes, if ya' know what I mean, Jellybean. These kids are BORN old and seemingly wise. They are called the Indigo…
