Hugh,

What's the difference between instinct, reason and intuition and on which planes of consciousness does each of these arise?

Bye, I need to rest for some time.

LOL.
What do you know about the soul?
Soul is not the breath of life or the life force as many ignorant persons assume on the basis of scriptural teachings.

In religious history, Jesus and Ramakrishna Paramhans are supposed to have drawn the sins of others on to themselves and as a result either became ill or suffered or died . In medieval times, the Mughal emperor Babur who conquered India is said to have willingly drawn on to himself via a Sufi ritual the fatal disease of his beloved son, Humayun, and died soon thereafter while the son got cured at the same time.

Is there any valid reason to believe in blasphemy? What're the natural consequences of blasphemy? None that can be accounted for. The "blasphemer" is always fine in mind and body if left alone by man-made laws that seek to punish "blasphemers" with the death penalty. So, the harsh punishment meted out to "blasphemers" is the work of deluded men claiming to act on behalf of some invisible God, while there's no divine retribution that befalls the "blasphemer". Abolish misguided blasphemy laws.

Blasphemy, apostasy, heresy and non-belief are meaningless words that are misguided human constructs that have nothing whatsoever to do with the actual workings of the reality and so should be forthwith discarded. Anyone is free to leave a faith, to criticise it, to question its teachings, or to convert to another faith that's better suited to his temperament. What matters is ethical behavior, cultivation of rational and intuitional faculties, aspiration for the truth and close observance of the natural laws where breeding and ecological preservation are concerned.

rabbee: yes i live in Colorado, and nope i have neither bought, sold, nor received any. i am neither for not against, freedom of individual choice. i do not possess, any firearm either. but i am neither for nor against, the personal choice of having one. just like many other things, that should not be mandated by the government.

so no! i am not a mile higher, than the mile high city. even if Colorado, has gotten a mile higher lately.

TANACH VERSUS NT:

1) Deuteronomy 4/39: "Know this day, and lay it to thy heart, that the LORD, He is God in heaven above and upon the earth beneath; there is none else."

JOEL - The verse from Deuteronomy 4/39 is an illogical creationist statement preaching pure dualism in which the Lord is stationed as the almighty and creator of the creation without there being perfect identity of the creation with the creator. In the absence of a causal link between the creator and the creation, the creationist view takes precedence.

2) NT: "I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you."

JOEL - The above statement is a stage in yoga called qualified nondualism which is a step above dualism as preached by Deuteronomy 4/39 but a step below nondualism.

Qualified nondualism shows the close nexus by bringing in a causal connection among Father, Prophet and human beings.

In dualism, the Father, Prophet and human beings are seen as separate entities without a causal connection among them.

Dualism, as preached by Deuteronomy 4/39, is the most inferior stage and rests on the illogic of creation from nothing.

Qualified nondualism bridges the rigid gap among Father, Prophet and human beings by bringing in a common force link or a common causal connection that links the three.

The highest stage in yoga is nondualism in which perfect oneness among Father, Prophet and human beings is established.

In this nondual stage, Father, Prophet and human beings are seen as the varied manifestations of one field of consciousness-energy.

THE INFERIOR DUALISM OF THE TANACH VERSUS THE SUPERIOR NONDUALISM OF THE NT:

1) The Tanach remains hopelessly stuck on the lowest stage called dualism in which the creator is eternally separated from the creation without there being a causal connection between the creator and the creation which then forces us to enter the illogical domain of creationism.

2) On the other hand, the NT scales all the three stages of ideation beginning with dualism, moving on to qualified nondualism and ending with a grand flourish in nondualism ("I and my Father are one", "The Kingdom of Heaven is within you", "be ye as perfect as thy Heavenly Father".)
