Angry at the people of the world and not the world.

I am angry at the people of the world and not the world itself. How come? I found out the world was here first people second. Since no one can truthfully say we the people have been here either seven thousand seven hundred thousand or seven million years, then how come we still can't agree on anything, still murder rape and steal plus wars and haven't found peace in those times? Only a few have, how did they do that?…

The wisdom of the sages of old.

When one reads their words one senses the peace of mind and beliefs of there words, conveying to us today their thoughts and hopes for us regardless of what their name was. In todays world it is said that "it is a dog eat dog world" which speaks for itself. The speaker believes it by experience. Yet the sages of old spoke differently with peace in their mind and heart. The word wonderment comes to mind as if to say there…

Words as words, beyond knowledge.

These words come to mind as knowledge words. Mystery equals curiosity curiosity relates to knowledge, knowledge brings on the word interpret. Speaking of the word interpret last night I was watching a movie that told me everything I wanted to now about the new testament except Revelations. The writer pulled me into the story and allowed me to (interpret my belief my…

The paths of truth.

The path of truth is a path with mysteries. Within the mystery lies a truth among truths. As babies we stare at things we do not understand stand, but in time they give us understanding. We unconsciously choose our own personal path in the beginning from curiosity, then it gets familiar and known to us, so we continue on our journey to understanding. In our journey we see and find mysteries we are unsure of and either accept them or deny them, which ever makes us…

Time as now/the present.

I have discovered if one thinks about (the now) of life without a clock, time stands still in that moment. Time was created by God for man. We have power in our life's on what we believe! It's called faith. Faith is beyond material everything. We believe it happens, it happens, we do not believe, it does not happen.…

The heart must have spiritual values as well as the mind?

Acording to the bible, the heart is the spiritual center for the body. Then there's the mind, another spiritual center within itself? Does the mind rule over the heart or vice versa? Who rules what? who is the master in these questions, the mind or heart or both. I tend to believe the mind is master over the emotions first then shares it with the heart.I claim the heart is more than biological it's spiritual.

Does love live in the heart first, then the mind or vice versa? The bible…

Can one find valid truth from hidden meanings?

Even tho we read in ignorance/literally/smboliclly (not understood), can any truth come to light from it? Do I remain ignorant or will God hear my plea? When a student of Aristotle questioned Aristotle about a lesson, Aristotle knew the student didn't understand the lesson, so he would rephrase the question.

God knew what was in Sauls mind and heart when he killed Stephan. Does God know what's in my heart to find truth? I want to believe he does. Does further questions bring more…

The mystery of belief.

Why do two or more people have doubts when they study Theosophy or the bible? I now see the hidden meanings within the bible and are drawn to Theosophy with their past theosophers. Have I always been drawn to these hidden enlightments by God, it is my hope I have been. I see two powerful enities, …

Theosophy my new adventure.

I seem to be drawn to theosophy over philosophy. I have found out philosophy is general human knowledge and questions esortoric thought. I am begining to understand human understanding is more material than spiritual. Spiritual goes deeper into material thoughts with plain language and no hidden meanings (which I hate), because there's a…

Change the mystery.

Sri Aurobindo,

After studying Sri Aurobindo, the word reincarnation comes to my mind. I am now wondering if our spirit is reincarnated while we are still alive and in our body. I know I have changed somehow because I (sense) it. If we can change our mind (which might be our spirit) and our life,…

External internal consciousness

What is consciousness? I would say it's (now, not the past or future but (the now) that you are aware of). It would seem to me that, time stands still, when one is having a (OBE) experience. But when we are (now conscious, we are at that moment, that's not past or present. When we have a external moment, time is present, where when we are having a internal conscious moment, time stands…

Philosophy,psychology and theosophy to me.

Philosophy to me is general understanding of living and searching for truth and wisdom in the knowledge of others who are doing the same thing. Discovering where I fit in the scheme of things in this world. Identifying myself with others and becoming a part of the whole.

Psychology is what people think and why. Psychology is the discovery of ones mind, which in itself is a spiritual adventure.

And last theosophy gets me in touch with my…

Group structure.

It is said you line up ten people and give a word to the first person and when that word gets to the tenth person, it is not the original word understood. In any group endeavor it is best to have a group goal that all can understand, or even a group word or phrase explains all. I can see the group diversity focused on creating a new idea using known facts. Unless…
