Mental instability or bodily diseases arise when the heredity and karma upset the steady rhythm of the innate driving force in the system which in turn upsets the functioning of the neurons or of the cells of an organ which as such get adversely affected as the case maybe.

A disproportionate brain size with respect to the body size and the complexity of the neuronal connections in the brain sets the human race aside from the other species.

Gosh. Rationalists are blinded by science. But, science makes better sense than religion and at the same time its hypotheses are corroborative and useful.

I think it was Tolstoy..."If your reach does not exceed your grasp then what is heaven for?" Or something like that!

Hope all is good in Fairfield County.

No sinkhole issues here recently. Colder and snowier than PA. Saw a small herd of 5 deer moving through the woods behind us - but they've been avoiding the deer lick I put up in droves!

Icy and foggy this morning.

Happy 2014!

Why would you want to attract deer? Most people I know want to rid themselves of them.

This winter has barely even started...hold on your hat...

We enjoy seeing all the wildlife.

No plans to cuddle up with them.

The worse thing we had was in the last house in PA - a family of
groundhogs/woodchucks lived under the deck the whole time we
were there. They ate a few plants. My father-in-law wanted us to
"get rid of" them but my research revealed no damage to houses caused by
them and my experience was just that. They ran like hell whenever we
crossed paths.

The concern is deer ticks, and the fact they eat your landscaping, as well as the entire forest understory.

If you think the Messianic Jews have it tough in Israel; thatís nothing compared to the way Hasidic Jews are treated in new York.

But there is no evidence that this was a religious hate attack, and no speculation this was a religious hate attack either. That said, the synagogue comment was not called for (totally irrelevent where the quote was from - do papers attribute quotes to people from Church too?), and the picture obviously makes people uncomfortable.

Of course, in Saudi Arabia -- you can get the death penalty for "preaching" anything except Islam.
Jews don't preach -- we don't go knocking on people's doors and asking them if who they pray to or how they do it.
Most of us find it offensive and impolite.
Jews don't knock on people's doors? Wanna bet? The ones in NYC are very aggressive. No, not Messianic Jews but Lubavitch. Shortly before Hanukkah, there they are at my door, even though there's no mezuzah. Every year, I also used to hear the loud Mitzvah van, but it seems to have stopped or moved on. I don't miss it.

Till now, nature, after millions of years of shuffling and trial and error, has manifested the higher intellectual degree of consciousness in man - her most advanced species till date - which, has, as a result, since the beginning of the industrial revolution in Europe, led to the present age of cutting edge technology and to a thorough investigation into the intricacies of matter. The stupendous progress made over the past century has led many scientists to conclude that by the year 2040 or so death due to senescence of body cells will be eradicated by electrochemical means. Possible.

As seen in the progress of civilization and in the shaping of external nature over millions of years, the terrestrial plane is evolutionary with certain internal and outer pressures creating favorable circumstances for the successive emergences of the indwelling degrees of consciousness in energy field - a phenomenon that we term evolution.

The higher degrees of consciousness in the terrestrial energy field are yet to emerge from a state of involution and may well remain in the dormant state or take another million years to manifest in the earth nature. Evolution in this sense is a slow process with many detours and periods of high instability with partial breakdowns as seen in mass species extinctions that kind of settle down after a new stage of equilibrium is reached and then the struggle to attain to the next higher stage of manifestation of consciousness in the earth nature begins after a time in the relentless evolutionary march towards perfect equilibrium. There's nothing "divine" in these natural phenomena that are a play of the forces of consciousness and energy.

Given the fact that energy, matter and consciousness, which form a unified field, are the only realities in the whole of existence, we can conclude with full confidence without fear of being contradicted that the word "divine" could only mean a subtler degree of vibration of conscious-energy field, while the absolute, the unified field, is beyond this so-called "divine" state and is in fact its origin. This absolute is the source of the whole of existence. LMAO.
