I'm flattered.
And yes, we can condition our minds to be able to experience these moments more often and more intensely.
I've always liked the phrase (and title) "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." Sometimes, the experience is more than we can contain without tears.
Thanks for sharing that.
How can anybody claim to be spiritual when they can't see anything in the world except degradation and horror?
==========
Speaking of which, here's my favorite scene from a Woody Allen movie.
Max - Woody Allen's character - who is newly single, is at an art museum with his best friend's wife to meet and maybe pick up some women. They see a young Goth chick standing by herself gazing up at a huge abstract painting. Max decides to approach her with this ice breaker. Follow along at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =lqqYJvzfakEXX starting about 53 seconds in:
MAX : That's quite a lovely Jackson Pollock, isn't it?
GOTH CHICK : Yes, it is.
MAX : What does it say to you?
GOTH CHICK : It restates the negativeness of the universe. The hideous, lonely emptiness of existence. Nothingness. The predicament of man forced to live in a barren, godless eternity like a tiny flame, flickering in an immense void, with nothing but waste, horror and degradation forming a useless straight-jacket in a black, absurd cosmos.
MAX : What are you doing Saturday?
GOTH CHICK : Committing suicide.
MAX : What about Friday night?
[The look on her face as she walks away from him is priceless]
LOL I do so hope that I do not become that...ever! Sadly I have heard to tone of her voice in people...I usually try to make a quick get-away.

Funny that you should post this. On my way back from the farmers market I walk by this art gallery. I had seen this one piece through the window and decided I would go in for a closer look. Price of it was way over my budget but I loved the simplicity of it.

Geesh IANS...that was kind of depressing! LOL Sad that there are people that see life that way. I have a sister such as that...it is hard to be around her.

Why, you've posted that, more than once. Is there some reason you've resorted to insults?
I'm sorry that you thought my comments were insults. Or assumptions. They were suggestions offered in good humor and in good faith. And I asked you if I was close or not, acknowledging that I was making a wild guess, so I don't know where the negativity about making assumptions came from - unless I hit too close to home. Sorry if that happened.

In any event, I wasn't expecting the reaction I got. I thought that at worst, you would laugh and say that I was way off. Instead, you were hurt or angry. I wouldn't do that to you intentionally.

You are an ostrich/german shephard mixed with polak poodle? Sure you are working on that project. I believe you. You campaign too?
Do you have a toothache, your mouth is swelled? Having mens persons in admiration because of advantage. Is this a tooth paste campaign or are you trying to say you admire men? Tried to joke around with you, because you are a mean old man, who has lost what loving God is all about....You HATE all people who are not like you. This world is full of flavor and color, if you would take time and look around, instead of throwing knives at people. They will throw them back at you....Understand?
Learn to copy God's word...you are making a mockery out of it.
The other two I get...but you have changed the Bible!
Revelations 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.
22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
So, if you want to quote the Bible, make sure you quote it correctly, this mama ain't playin with that! Know God's word before spuing it out in vain! Jesus didn't die on the cross just for you.
Matthew 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 21)Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for awhile: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.22) He also that received deed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29) Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30) For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

That's the best thing about the Christian church - it performs its greatest service to mankind by evaporating. It has never done more for the West than it has in the last several decades by wasting away.
In what fantasy world do you live in to think the Christian church has been "wasting away"? No wonder you convince yourself your arguments all serve some outside purpose...you are delusional. Just cause the guys in your hackey-sack circle or whatever it is you and those like-minded with you do think you are having some huge impact doesnt make it so.. You are the empirical one right? Please provide hard proof that would support your assertion that the church has wasted away over recent decades. Did its membership drop .05% or something?(rolls eyes)

Lol...good luck to those who think they are going to limit believers to practicing their faith just to their own homes and churches. Obviously faith is part of who many people are and they dont check it at the door when they leave home.Maybe Topix has given some delusions of grandeur but if you were even a fraction as successful as you think in your effort to "cripple" the church where are all the atheist politicians and members of Congress or even state legislatures and judges?And some portary Christians as delusional. Christianity isnt going anywhere and it certainly isnt restricting its use to private. So long as within the law people have every right to express their beliefs however they want and to whomever they want. There was a Revolutionary war that had something to do with this. And nobody cares if Ians or anybody else follows Christ if you choose not to. Keep saying that btw. But just like we cant force others to follow nobody can dictate to us how we choose to if legal.

<quoted text>Ditto Lawest100, I am adding my Happy Birthday wishes for Drew to yours and everyone else's :)
This morning is one of those reflective, GOD mornings; one where I revel in memories instilled with love. In other words, I am 'tripping down memory lane' and have the luxury of time on my side.
Thinking of writing of my Step father; and the message I received from him when he had passed to his new realm. I have since heard of him too ~ but then again, when one seeks those who 'feel' Angels, or Souls of our beloved, one expects to receive these messages.
'Tis usually only those that have strong Spiritual depth (for one way of putting it and not a slur against those who don't) that seek the Spiritual..
My understanding comprehends those who have these feelings, as I know from personal (and many) experiences that we do have links with the Spiritual Realm, and I find it hard to consider that there are some who do not have these links and experiences.
I am not talking about GOD, or JESUS, I am talking about our own loved ones; how does one live a lifetime without connection to them?
Now, I am talking about GOD and JESUS ~ how can one not heed their messages? Like caterpillars in the making..... we are nourishing our vessels in preparation of moving into the next Realm ~ one where our bodies are useless but our Soul is vital? We are taking with us that which we have etched into our DNA, our game plan, and it is this game plan that we will be presenting to our Heavenly Father.
***Some people are born a success, scientists believe.
Research shows that much of our predisposition towards determination, sociability and self-control and sense of purpose is in our genes.
In fact, our DNA plays a bigger role in influencing these traits than our upbringing and the company we keep.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/articl... ***
Could it possibly be that some do not have GOD in their DNA? Is this why there is dead thought instead? Is this perhaps why some can think death simply means shutting everything down and others cannot comprehend that thought at all?
Revelation 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
seal
noun
1.
an embossed emblem, figure, symbol, word, letter, etc., used as attestation or evidence of authenticity.

Just more of the same tactics. You have never told me how you would go about trying to get the church to just volunteers. That is such a bizarre goal to begin with and there is no way I can imagine anybody could hope to accomplish that. But you are blatantly lying again as you have not even come close to explaining how you would try to get the church down to just volunteers. Just as usual you have changed your claims mid-stream and know this is so preposterous that nothing you could say wouldnt be equally preposterous so you will lie and claim you already answered

You know what is ironic? Many people have blasted Christians for saying when it comes to homosexuality that they dont want to see it or think about it but so long as it is kept in their bedrooms or social clubs for people that are gay then fine but they dont want to be subjected to it.And of course they got blasted and rightfully so as this is America and nobody needs anybody else's permission to be who they are or believe as they do so long as legal. That people who are gay dont need to hide in private. Yet IANS says he wants to see those of faith limited to its use just in their churches and homes. Sound familiar? It should. It fact switch gay for Christian and Ians is just as bigoted as those he rails against. Hmm

Nope. Skomboli Disease is where you can't resist making defamatory comments about another person who criticizes ideas and values that you respect or hold dear.

You keep impugning my character for it. Although I'm pretty used to it, I seldom abide it for long. Why should I? Your parents should have taught you better. Or your god. Since they didn't, maybe I can.

Is honesty something you simply arent capable of? This had nothing to do with any church butting in. First you claimed Juicy got you all wrong and you never said anything to indicate you think all or most Christians have been indoctrinated and then go on to say basically just that. Then you blamed Lee's church for how he thinks with no proof his church played any role in how he came to those opinions and in fact he confirmed it didnt. This was about you trying to falsely blame someone's church for why they feel as they do. and who are you anyway to tell someone who can influence how they have come to opinions?

Do you want all Christian Church activity to butt out of the world? Do you want Missionaries to stop what they are doing and what they will be doing in the future? Do you want the Congregations to stop giving donations that help the world? Do you want the Congregations to stop caring for each other in times of need?

When my Stepfather was dying, he did become closer to GOD as such, and started going to Church regularly, with my Mother, who went all her life. Cutting many stories of being there for others out, on the day of my Stepfathers funeral, held at their local Church, we had the ceremony and the Congregation of old friends attended, along with friends and family members. While we were outside watching the hearse drive off with the coffin, the Congregation of people laid out the supper and got ready the drinks etc, and we celebrated his life as one does when one is in mourning.

Do you want to take those comforts away from people too? Is that what you mean by Church butt out?
