Anla'shok studies

Lone Bear, you will start a new user group, Anla'shok studies, locked but possibly public, on which the study guides will be posted. I have created a separate category for the Anla'shok, moved the existing group, and added the study group. Since you came up with the idea, you volunteered to co-mode...

Re: Dreams

Reading some of the postings makes me think of time I spend in the wilderness, and in particular, how much more I dream and how much clearer the dreams are. That is a result of the "psychic space" available in the wilderness. I'm sure you've heard of Auras, right? The mind and spirit, being non-loc...

Re: Dreams

I was wondering if there are any tips you can give me to help clear my mind. I find that if I am not sleeping well, or cannot remember my dreams, it is because my conscious mind is too active. I believe that clearing my conscious mind will help my unconscious mind focus, or at least clarify, what i...

Archetypes of the Tarot

what are your archetypes, how did you uncover this, how do you "know" these archetypes, how are they applied...etc etc. I guess a primer, I want to be educated about this. The Tarot trumps are also a good archetypal reference, though you can't get interpreters to agree on the correspondence of trum...

The PITS

it almost boarders on the romantic. I know that I do not understand it fully but its...an incredible combination of heart-break and deep satiety, that feeling I mean. In my dreams I am embraced by other beings and the "family" is found and in our being together we are home and such. That sounds mor...

Today I is one

I've never felt alien to this planet. At times however, I have felt alien to these people. I've often felt, most purely and clearly in dreams, that I am not home among most people and that could just be feelings of growing up and individuating. Sounds like you have many of the characteristics of th...

Not a simple request

Not a simple request to fulfill... like most people, I felt I never "fit in" with those around me. My paradigm was never the paradigm of my friends or teachers, so I was never satisfied with the explanations I received. This forced me to find my own answers to my own questions, and the first result ...

Improving communication

It may be the case that the concepts I am using, or the way I am presenting them are just new, and not so much the case that what I am attempting to explain is inherently intellectually challenging to understand. The problem is that if I try to simplify a thought, it is much more likely to be misin...

Zen, for instance, needs to "talk down" when he speaks to me. What ever gave you that idea, my naive child? I can't keep up with you intellectually.

No Pain

But how does one state such a tenet, and how does one evaluate attentiveness to spirit?? Stating it is a bit of a challenge, given how words are defined and used these days, but evaluation is simple... spiritual growth is a result of attentiveness, and that manifests as knowledge, wisdom and clarit...

Re: The Alliance

Long ago, and far away, my old high school English teacher told me the way to recognize good literature was whether or not it taught you something about life. After all these years, I would say the way to recognize good literature (or movies, or music) is whether or not it speaks to your spirit. An...

Stratification of the Spirit

We've also discovered that the first 7 valuing memes (vMemes) of Spiral Dynamics line up almost perfectly with the 7 subdensities of the 3rd density -- the spirit complex. They define the drives, motivations, inhibitions and social interactions for various classes of people. Tier 1 is defined as the...

Righteousness

Finally, my own personal distortions prompt me to recoil at the idea of righteousness being supposedly good. I'm sure the holy crusades thought so, too. So I would ask that we consider how to frame the idea of righteousness... Is it action with intention of doing "good?" Is it simply doing what we ...

Principles of Alliance

The 28 Mota of Morontia Life (from The Urantia Book, page 556), which may make a good start at defining the ethical principles of alliance: 1. A display of specialized skill does not signify possession of spiritual capacity. Cleverness is not a substitute for true character. 2. Few persons live up t...

Selection of Martial Arts

So, back to my original point, I agree that martial arts training is essential, but I would take the focus off of protection and move it onto awareness. Of course, the chosen art ought to (IMO) be a non-combative one. Maybe I've lived too many lives as a zen buddhist. :wink: Which of the martial ar...

So we would be sharing the same time/space of the blast with our minds?

Often, humans become so caught up in flexing the muscle of mind that they lose sight of the journey. Remember the journey ... from novitiate to master ... from clueless know-it-all to the guru who knows he knows not.

Dynamic Organizational Structures

Ranger Studies

In Linguistic theory (the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis) the structure of a human language sets limits on the thinking of those who speak it. Thinking and speaking in other languages therefore naturally expands those limits. This was recognized by the Anla'shok on Babylon 5 by their requirement to learn tw...

Nature's nature

As LoneBear pointed out, ethics is based on the observation of how nature behaves. It is funny how nature changes how it behaves in accordance with our attitudes. Wait a minute, does nature change its rules of behavior in this manner? How would we know otherwise? It isn't Nature's nature to change ...
