  1. Ooh here’s the sun in the Isha “The face of truth is hidden by your orb Of gold, O sun. May you remove your orb So that I, who adore the true, may see The glory of truth. O nourishing sun, Solitary traveler, controller, Source of life for all creatures, spread your light And subdue your dazzling splendor So that I may see your blessed Self. Even that very Self am I!”
  2. Could there possibly be more than one meaning? And can one give hope to the other?
  3. Tik Tok appears on the cover of the prophetic Economist World In 2021. There may be something happening in the future concerning this app, whether it is spying by its Chinese parent company, Douyin, applied mind control technology, or further denigration of the world’s youth through the seedier aspects of the app. The name Tik Tok may have been taken from a 1983 novel by science fiction writer John Sladek. The plot concerns a robot who inverts the Asimov laws. “So, instead of being an obedient and faithful domestic robot he turns his hand to child murder, gang murder
  4. “Isha Upanishad verses 9-14 is what scholars call a ‘crux,’ or famously difficult passage. “ - Eknath Easwaran, translator. “In dark night live those for whom The world without alone is real; in night Darker still, for whom the world within Alone is real. The first leads to a life Of action, the second to a life of meditation. But those who combine action with meditation Cross the sea of death through action And enter into immortality Through the practice of meditation. So have we heard from the wise. In dark night li
  5. The Upanishads, a part of the Vedas, were written down during the Vedic Period of c. 1500 - c. 500 BCE, but probably are a lot older than that. From the introduction by Eknath Easwaran: “The Upanishads offer a very different version of what religion means. They tell us there is a Reality underlying life that rituals cannot reach, next to which the things we see and touch in everyday life are shadows. They teach that this Reality is the essence of every created thing, and the same Reality in our Real Self, so that each of us is one with the power that created and susta
  6. Anyway...it’s about preparing the heart and mind. How to do this? One way is to follow this advice, and maybe copy it and place it somewhere prominent as a reminder. Philippians 4:8 “whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
  7. I never understood the point of meditation, but tried it anyway. Some funky stuff happened when I did it a year or so ago. For one thing I got doodle bopped either by a disembodied being or my own subconscious. Can’t say it was terrible. Once I listened to some guided mediation lady on a YouTube video and a tiny flaming chariot led by lions came out of me and rode around the room. I wasn’t even totally into it. Another time I was transported to some class where others were meditating together and the teacher saw me and spoke to me. Then I went to so
  8. This world is evil. Once you understand that you will see it everywhere in most things coming out of industrial society. If you were a TV kid like me, raised in front of a TV everyday your mind will be shattered, your thoughts shards. Images of death and sex will always dwell in your subconscious mind. All this is on top of your own human natural tendencies of pride, jealousy, etc. Even as an individual residing in the lower tiers of society it is a tremendous struggle to do right. To think right. Now imagine you come from this same evil world and have all this to deal with
  9. (I don’t personally believe in praying to the dead either.) Just with the telepathy thing, meaning communication between one person’s mind and another: It could so easily go off the rails when you’re dealing with voices. I have had a hard time with voices at different times in my life. Only once was I able to verify one voice as coming from a living human. Otherwise, for a young person, it was very torturous. The problem was distinguishing delusions from reality, and there were a lot of abusive and intrusive voices. I experienced a loud voice at times when I was in immed
  10. You only need three people to do a telepathy experiment. A sender, receiver, and a neutral who has the correct information for later verification. The sender must be gifted at projecting thoughts, the receiver good at detecting. The neutral should be trustworthy.
  11. I lack manly strength and stamina. Another token of wisdom: only try to reseal a resealable package once. If it doesn’t seal the first time, it clearly doesn’t work.
  12. Yes you are correct. Sorry I was having a moment, being irritated at certain individuals on here who make prayer look like a silly joke so they can undermine it and pitch their own brand of pop spirituality.
