Hey Hugh,
Everything originates from one reality, or in other words everything in existence is a graded manifestation of a single, self-existent, self-contained source.
The subjects listed by you above belong to the lower reaches of the mind and as such they're not to be taken seriously and should be used in a constructive manner for the little worth they have which means that each subject listed above has its little uses and serious limitations.
Don't expect to find truth in inferences, numbers, surmises and hazy physical facts. The truth is far vaster and profounder.
Those subjects that you've mentioned above are mere surface effects of deeper causes.
Math (my favorite subject), languages, medicine and the like have far more utility in the ordinary life than religion which in most cases is an exercise in perversity, irrationality, myopia, ignorance and fanaticism.
Remember, all truth is fact but all fact is not truth.
Above all, act with caution, very great caution, when dealing with the religious teachings that are either mumbo jumbo or unbridled fanaticism.
Choose wisely.
I have chosen love.

I read a comment today that said Libertarians are just Republicans without money.
Yeah, that's pretty close to my line on them:

Republicans who don't want to pay their taxes.

To date you have not provided any facts .
I don't think I said that is what makes it legitimate, simply that is what will happen if you don't pay.

Do you know what charge they eventually got to stick against Al Capone? Tax evasion.

I said you should consult an attorney.

Good luck. I hear they bill in 6-minute increments. Oy.

Fine.

Now, here's the yogic explanation:

Love lies within the realm of dualism.

Wherever there's love, its opposite, hate, is always present with each attempting to justify its position and to dominate the play of the forces. The opposites are juxtaposed.

This perpetual dual movement of alternating love and hate sessions leads to mood swings, fetishes, envy, egoism and prejudices that exacerbate the wear and tear mechanism and accelerates the dislocation of the various planes and parts of being.

Even the purest love is not independent of its contradiction which is pure hate.

Causing hate to dwindle or to enter a dormant state under the impact of pure love does not get rid of hate except for making it temporarily quiescent.

Hate springs into re-manifestation given the right conditions.

So, the seed of hate always remains intact though in latent form.


To access the purest form of love, the awakened psychic will have to ascend to the plane of the overmind - the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th planes.

The pure overmental love in its descending mode is modified by the movements of the lower planes through which it filters through and so the pure love that comes down into the human equivalents of mind and vital are great diminutions of the highest love of the overmental. And mixed with this contracted human love are lust, possessiveness, jealousy and egoism which can then easily be overcome by hatred - the opposite of love.

The aim is to rise above the overmind and as such to ascend to an supra-over-mental plane where the opposites are completely unified and so they're not free to exhibit their individual traits.

In this unified poise of the opposites, that's only possible in the supramental planes and beyond, the entire universe appears a harmonious whole pulsating with one unified vibration fulfilling the truth of nature and being under every condition with the contradictions disappearing and with it wear and tear, dislocation and decomposition.

It is here in the supramental that the higher nondual consciousness and the higher gnosis get manifested....

and more....

HUGH:

HughBe - As a man thinks, so is he.

1) How do thoughts mould personality?

2) How potent are our thoughts?

3) Why do thoughts act on matter (body)? Or do they?

4) How do you reconcile mind with matter from your theological perspective?

5) Is there any mention of mind, vital and matter and their interactions in your scripture given the fact that the Bible begins and ends with the life-force?

6) Is there any reference to the supramental planes of consciousness in the Bible?

7) Is there any mention of the unified field of consciousness, energy and matter in the Bible given the fact that the only tangibles in existence are consciousness, energy and matter and as such what is meant by the term spirit?

8) What is soul? Is it different from the self?

9) How would one get into direct contact with say the 4th plane of existence in the cosmic hierarchy?

Thank you.

NONE of them?!!

Do you think a man can be friends with a woman, without
thinking fairly often about doing her (assuming she isn't
butt ugly)?

Not so much in my experience.

Yes, I heard about the NAACP. This is why we should care.
Could go (and has gone) either way. Even of there was no GOP
outrage at the time, and there wasn't.

The funny thing is that I would think you would agree with it. It basically says while the IRS wastes time on a wild goose chase persecuting people who really have no significant assets, they purposely ignore the large rich Super Pacs which are the real problem in society.
I can only guess you didnt read the article. Do you have ADD by any chance?
why not? you shoot the messenger all of the time.

The same IRS office that deliberately targeted conservative groups
applying for tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 election
released nine pending confidential applications of conservative
groups to ProPublica late last year… In response to a request for
the applications for 67 different nonprofits last November, the
Cincinnati office of the IRS sent ProPublica applications or
documentation for 31 groups. Nine of those applications had not
yet been approved—meaning they were not supposed to be made
public.(We made six of those public, after redacting their
financial information, deeming that they were newsworthy.)

HUGH:

Given the barrage of accusations and expletives directed at you concerning your sexual orientation, it's made me wonder if you're sexually attracted to me?

I still remember your invite to shower with you made years ago....

Yes.

There is that mid range of being attractive enough for society but not one's personal cup of tea. That helps keep things tamped down.

And then there are a few women who although I initally wanted, I was rebuffed,and then over time in the course of a friendship I realized how much of a nut case or nut situation she was, and that no sex would of EVER been worth the mess and the hassle or the soap opera. That tames the Johnson like nothing else!
