    the 'spirits'/angels/etc seem strangely distant from our human problems. 


    They are. There is a big difference between someone being aligned with their higher self and someone being identified with the suffering of this world. A being who is in a vibration of love does not understand the suffering associated with being in a state of fear, anger or hatred. 

  2. It's enculturation. It's a social norm which people, in most cases, unconsciously attune to without ever truly questioning whether it is right for them, or has value. Like acquiring property, working and procreating. 


    People unconsciously attune to widespread social norms because in an evolutionary sense they guarantee greater security and provision of resources than going against the grain.

    Not bad actually. I doubt Eminem would be a fan though - he's said many times how he loathes this Vanilla Ice song!

    I would like to explore the notion as to whether there is an executive God or not?


    By this I mean, is there a separate entity called god that directs everything?


    Or if you believe in oneness. 


    Is there a part of God, that controls and directs everything?


    Or could it be more an omnicentric God. Where there is no central point of control, and every part of God (us lot) is and contributes to the overall control and direction of experience?


    It stands to reason there is a creative force which is the generative force of all that is. Christians call this 'God' whilst those in the sciences would call it a unified field. I see it as an essence; a creative force, the lifeblood of all that is.

    News on radio today. They're going to ban smoking a plant which comes out of the ground, an 8000 year old tradition


    Instead you'll have a bit of plastic  tube with a battery and some dodgy juice vaporised. Something which has been around not 10 years and many scientists saying its worse than smoking


    People don't realise where we are headed.


    We'll all be eating out of ration packs before long


    Not like you can get much better from the supermarket these days 



    I'm glad someone has highlighted this. I was a smoker for a long time and gave up, interestingly enough, over the course of 2020-21. I briefly tried vaping in it's early days, but that was back when it was marketed as a way to come off cigarettes, rather than as a permanent feature in one's life. I stopped after a week or so because, believe it or not, I ended up with severe chest pains - even though after a decade of smoking cigarettes I'd rarely experienced chest pains, although I'd had plenty of sore throats.


    I'm not saying one is definitively worse than the other, although I have long suspected that many people who vape have convinced themselves it is harmless because a) they enjoy it, b) they want it to be harmless and c) they want to believe there is such a thing as a harmless addiction. It's possible vaping is harmless. Then again, it's possible it isn't.


    One thing I would say is that it's kind of early days to know. It's less than 20 years since vaping became popular. At one time, cigarettes too were marketed as 'healthy' and doctors even prescribed them. I see the amount of vapor these things produce and I have my doubts. Are we as a species meant to inhale anything other than oxygen into the body? No, I don't think so. 


    I think it is designed to suppress anxiety in much the same way that fags do. When I was a teenager and started smoking I loved that I'd found a way to regulate anxiety; vaping is exactly the same dynamic.

    It is by avoiding the shadow.


    That's a joke. I took issue with your spelling and grammar on one occasion, disagreed with you on the subject of crime and punishment, and you thought it justified calling me an "infestation" in another thread. Check your own shadow at the door, sweetie.

    Yes, people have different beliefs and opinions but it is us, individuals, who keep certain vibration and attracts it.




    People with a high vibration don't advocate for the death penalty.
