    In the beginning... Our Creator was alone,

    within the vastness of nothingness and decided one day he wanted more, so he created a female... the opposite to himself, to assist him. Father, being masculine, knew how to hunt, protect and survive, after all he'd been doing just fine, for so long. But now, he wanted to...

    I have started reading The Complete Works of

    Swami Vivekananda in order to learn from Hinduism. Thus far I am a Christian whose beliefs have been transformed by reading about Buddhism. And now I would like to expand my spiritual horizons further. I believe that I can learn from other faiths and not just my own.

    Discipline

    if there was a single most important lesson I should learn in this life, I think this is it. discipline. I've struggled with it ever since I was a child, and now it seems even harder. but I firmly believe I can keep learning, and I can keep working on myself, as long as I see...

    There Is No Truth, Only Your Truth, My Truth.

    In this 'system' we live in, we are bound by illusions and beliefs. Without beliefs, no one can live. What comes real to us, or 'truth' as some prefer to name it, is only real if we believe it. Still, there are so many out there who claimed they have awakened and want to 'teach...

    It looks like no other.

    I hold to no doctrine nor dogma How I choose to gain my Freedom I will. There is nothing like a good love story. That's how I think about the universe. Knowing it must be in pain and CHOOSE to burn the hate.. the war...the inequality... the overlooking of others in pain...

    There is a saying that God watches out

    for those who watch out for themselves. At first glance it may sound cynical or sarcastic. But I believe it is not. It is very true. If we listen, we will hear that inner voice telling us that something is not a good idea, for example. Or if we stay watchful, we are less likely...

    how can he punish us for sinning if he knows ahead of time that we will? My current insight is based on my reading of the bible combined with reading some Buddhist texts: From the bible, in Deuteronomy 31:16-21 I read about how God is talking to Moses before he is about to die...

    It occurs to me that

    while spiritual texts such as the bible were inspired in their writing, there needs to also be inspiration in the reading. The Holy Spirit guiding both the writers and the readers. Without the Holy Spirit scriptures are like a lock without a key.
