And by the way, there are Jewish Indians.
I am aware and unimpressed.

I stay away from anything parochial and tribal and if the beliefs and customs are revolting - genocides, abnormal eugenic practices, enslavement, fanaticism, exploitation of women of POWs, human/animal sacrifices, incest, stoning, infanticide, jealousy, etc,- then I scoot.

Judaism is tribal in the sense that it believes that the specific laws of Judaism are meant only for the nation of Israel.
Frijoles-- personally I dont accept that megillah(Esther) as history.

HughBe--- List the reasons why that is so.

Do you celebrate Purim?

Do the Jews who celebrate the Feast of Purim celebrate a LIE?

OUTSTANDING matters--
do you read Esther from a scroll?
Is Esther in books?

HughBe--- Get rid of the higher force. SEX urge is NATURAL and it should not be quelled it should be controlled but not quelled.
Yes.

In the normal life, the sex urge should be controlled and regulated but if perfection of the being-body is the grand aim then mastery over all the impulses and their transmutation into the spiritual vibe of the supramental kind is essential.

Are you aware that ejaculation drains out a substantial part of the vital force that leaves through the semen as well as through the tips of the thumb and index fingers of the right hands and from the forearm region of both the arms?

I can actually "see" all this with naked eyes and can feel the lowering in mind-body potential.

Besides, the sex act, with a woman or a man, results in exchange of vibes with your partner and as expected most of the incoming forces are of an undesirable kind given the serious personality defects and the kind of adverse forces controlling them in most people these days and these absorbed vibes coming from your sex partner sink into the cumulative force field - the subconscient - at the soles of the feet from where they periodically keep rising in waves to create disturbances and blocks in the life and mind-body of a person.

You wouldn't know all this since you're tooooooo dense, ignorant and insensitive to the play of the gross and subtle forces and in addition the ignorant rogues of the Tanakh and that stupid madman Jesus did not mention anything abut these finer mechanisms since they were as clueless as you are.

Total mastery over all mental, vital, physical and subconscient impulses and their transformation into the supramental vibe is the aim.

Nothing less.

PS: Do you regularly go to a salon for a dick-cure akin to say a manicure/pedicure?

Anyway, best regards, mon.

Within the causal mechanism of the mental, vital and physical spatio-temporal factors, most things are gray and not necessarily black or white since there's nothing rigid about any entity/object in these realms and most importantly the way a thing is viewed and put to use would determine its utility ....this statement can be logically proven.

There are many different religions and they are viewed/thought of in many different ways.

Religion is objective in the sense that it has its visible beliefs, its symbols, its rituals, its prayers, its scripture, its clergy, its followers and its shrines. How a believer relates to a religion is determined by the individual's personality type but in this case, too, where the subjective side is stressed there are outwardly signs of faith in the life/personality of an individual. Like most things in nature and life, spiritualism is both subjective and objective - trance experience is the subjective aspect, while paranormal phenomena is the objective side of the spiritual life. However, trance is attended by bodily changes/bodily manifestations that can be seen and studied objectively.

Nothing in nature or in life is purely subjective or purely objective but a mixture of both states of existence. In fact, in the ultimate analysis, everything with the human experience boils down to mental perception and psycho-emotional feeling and so in this sense everything is subjective. How one puts out a mental idea or a mental perception or an emotion is its objectivization. Note - the objectivization of a thought, perception or idea is scaled down to the properties and limitations of matter as a mental vibe - a finer state of existence - is sought to be realized in matter - a state that is gross and characterized by lower information content when compared to the mind or emotion. Hey, there.

And you say that you follow the dictates to stay out of a cage.
The question was , if the church put you in a cage if you didn't pay them and follow their commandments , would that make the church as legitimate as government to you?
We've been over this so many times....

Faith means belief without evidence.

I simply know what will happen if I don't follow the law. So I choose to follow the law.

Tell me where the element of faith is involved here.

It's like deciding not to hit yourself in the head with a hammer because you know it will hurt.

Is there faith involved in that decision as well?

A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel
Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is
dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry
figures centered around the privately owned U.S.
Federal Reserve. The network has seized control of the
media to cover up its crimes, too, she explained. In an
interview with The New American, Hudes said that
when she tried to blow the whistle on multiple
problems at the World Bank, she was fired for her
efforts. Now, along with a network of fellow
whistleblowers, Hudes is determined to expose and
end the corruption. And she is confident of success.
Citing an explosive 2011 Swiss study published in the PLOS ONE
journal on the “network of global corporate control,” Hudes pointed
out that a small group of entities — mostly financial institutions and
especially central banks — exert a massive amount of influence over
the international economy from behind the scenes.“What is really
going on is that the world’s resources are being dominated by this
group,” she explained, adding that the “corrupt power grabbers” have
managed to dominate the media as well.“They’re being allowed to do
it.”
According to the peer-reviewed paper,
