I agree, it was very well written. So was "The Te Of Piglet" for that matter.
So let's hear the good story! Does it involve being loved by Jesus?
:)
Nope. No Jesus.

First an explanation.
The Taoist Religion and the Taoist Philosophical School have been at odds for over 2000 years. The works of Lai Tzu, Chuang Txu and other philosophers (circa 500 BC) alleged to have written the Tao Te Ching and other texts talked about "Tao" much as Spinoza talked about "God". Many perverted this into a deity, added alchemy and twisted the simple philosophical words into a magic system.
One example:

Chuang Tzu said "It is easy to fly like a bird, let go of everything weighing you down." What he meant of cours is that our jobs, families and positions keep is from being free to go anywhere we want.
The Taoist religion twisted this into a belief that there were magical ways for man to literally fly.... and if you really believed (and payed the preisthood through the nose) they could teach you how to do it, then when it (obviously)they would tell you you didn;t have enough faith...and if you helped pay for the new temple it would prove your faith (or something similar).

The Taoist philosophers saw the relgion is a scam and made a point of mocking the religion. The religion in turn becme very violent against the philosophers as "evil heretics and demons".

Sound familiar ? <frowny face>

Will continue in a moment. Need to stretch my wings for a bit.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
The one that claimed to write it.
I'm not aware that any god claimed to write the bible. I wonder where you got that?
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Common ground at last.
I'm glad you're relieved. Don't get too used to it.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
The god who claimed to write the bible.
I'm not aware of any god claiming to write the bible. You should read more. This is not kindergarten.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Actually, I am one. I have rejected all god claims, and you can't reject more than all of them.
You sound confused.

Take 2

You sound confused.

Try again.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Whatever logic may be, it's not that.
How long does it take you to believe the stuff you write. Having a hard time?
It aint necessarily so wrote:
I think it does.
No surprise there either.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Au contraire.
Not at all. You should read more you know. After all, this really isn't kindergarten.

<quoted text> WRONG!
Are ya not a part of all there is? Do you not interact with nature? Do you not breathe? Does your person maintain 98.6 temp? How many folks do ya suppose read what you write/an don't ya see it has an effect in ther state in several and sundry ways?
Every single moment of yer existence requires intermingl'n energy with the ALL/IAM, an can affect it in a multitude of dimensions(many of which you can never know) which may reverberate to the very ends of the universe.
No my dear, you are as important as the pope or any other entity that has ever existed. You have always been, you are, and you always will be. You only realize that which your eyes perceive, and that is a minute speck in the ALL/IAM. You are made of pure energy(all matter is-fact) which can not be destroyed. It can only change form and exchange places and dimension.
Woo Wooo there captain.Time to take whispers off a toad stool there.What you know about changing forms,What you know about exchanging places and What you know about dimensions.I not shared anything here on the threads that is not already written and recorded.

Baths for foreigners.

An inscription found in a synagogue in Jerusalem dating before A.D.70 mentions bathing establishment for those from abroad.This may refer to the Pool of Siloam (John 9:7) near which the synagogue was found.

Bonsoir monsieur, one need not be a Christian to understand His teachings and words. Words of wisdome are univeral and so are those of compassion. In any language and in any country, my soulmate and I are well traveled.

Speaking of honesty, tell us, are you gainfully employed?

And so, the rest of the story:

A friend of mine was an aspiring master in Taekwondo. He said his first day the Master said, "For those of you who wanted to get a black belt there are belts and certificates of completion near the exit. Take one and go away."

When I studied Taosim the first thing the Master said was "By the authority of the State of California I pronounce you all Preists in the Taoist Church of California. If that was all you wanted please leave now. There is nothing here for the religious."

They are all scientific facts, and already observed in experiment- even dimension. Not "exchanging places" in your physical form, but your life's energies do every moment...That, in itself,[proves] that what your person is made of is perpetual.
Even your scripture says " 'You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High". Why do you think it says that?- I just told ya why...Yer all part of the ALL/IAM...that includes "Lil' whispers" y'know. Quit think'n yer not important in that reality.

I think it was Woody Allan who said that eternity is a very long time, especially near the end.
