This might be an apt metaphor: to be aware in the likeness of a mirror, which reflects but does not retain.

Hi Efrem, From your post I get the impression that you suggest that evil and good spirits are somehow separate entities residing independently outside us. Is that correct? Have you ever entertained the possibility that these might be just forces within us? Let's take it even further, could concepts of evil and good be just a matter of perception? Just like the YIn-Yang symbol surrounded by a cir

Hi Mark, Nice to see you posting here again. And yes, I too have experienced what you call a rush. Or bliss. Or a combination of both ;-) I guess there's no accurate word that describes the experience. -J

Hi banah, "Lovely! Except that the Christian and Hindu concept of God are totally different things. To a Christian God is the creator and author of all life and matter and even that thing we call time. " Yes, religions have different concepts of God and that is not really a bad thing. But can you, without a doubt, say that your understanding of God is superior to someone else's? And

Hi Mark, Perhaps we've never left the highest place, it's only our prception that clouds our vision. Once we start seeing things as they really are, the access might immediately become available again. All that's neccessary is a shift in consciousness and dropping of all illusions. It's not about going back, it's about realizing that we already are where we want to be. Lightning flashes. Sparks

IMHO, whether it is a command, request or acknowledgment is irrelevant. Differentiation is an illusion; for something to exist as separate, it is only necessary to name it. -J

"In prayer can be seen as a command, to our God-Conscious within, rather then a request to a God outside . Us, for we are looking for "Oneness", as opposed to seperateness." But differentiating between the God within and the outside God implies seperateness, doesn't it?

Hi Martin, I think you might be onto something. After a short research I've found this website - Fuzzy's little secret. He's making money on our socks, he's even got CA's fuscia ones.

Hi all, I am being bombarded by Winfixer 2006 pop-ups. When I run Spybot it detects it and tells me the problem is fixed but then an hour or so later the pop-ups back. I'm not sure what to do, all this is very annoying. Any help much appreciated, Best, -J

The British Library has made available on its website 14 great books, including a notebook of Leonardo da Vinci and the Diamond Sutra, the oldest printed book. As you turn the pages you can use a magnifying glass to study the details. Good stuff.

As far as books, I'm also disappointed that The Magus (Fowles) didn't make it as it happens to be one of my all time favorite reads. And what about Louis de Berniere? What about Robertson Davies? But no matter, my favorite writers, Eco, Borges, Marquez, Bulgakov etc would not make the list anyway as they do not (or did not) write in English. As far as movies, I'm pleased to see Kieslowski's Dec

Nice pics, Fuzzy. What camera do you use? Here, in Vermont the trees look spectacular, but it's been raining for almost 2 weeks straight and I haven't taken any pictures. It's getting cold too. Brrrr.. -J

LOL, this brings back some memories. While spending some time in Italy a long time ago, I briefly dated an Italian, and although he was a sweet guy, he did seem to be a bit of a mama's boy. I didn't mind it much at the time because his mama was a lovely person as well. She did all the cooking, and come to think of it now, she did the dishes too. I guess it's a good thing that I ended up marryi

I'm curious what most people use these days. Do you still stick with film or have you gone digital. Both perhaps? It seems digital is taking over these days - is it a good thing? I'm beginning to feel a bit nostalgic already. -J

Awesome, Claude. The most beautiful things in the world are always close at hand for those who have eyes to see them (and cameras to capture them ;-)), aren't they? Nature is an exquisite painter. Here in Vermont we have beautiful sunsets almost every evening. They are always a spectacle, you go get yourself a cup of coffee, sit, relax and just inhale the experience. It's almost beyond spiritu

Briffits, I've never seen The Phantom but The Discrete charm of the bourgeoisie remains one of my favorite movies ever. It's strange how, all of a sudden, certain things grab your attention. Yesterday I was browsing Amazon and came across Bunuel's autobiography "My last sigh", which I'm probably going to order. Have you read it? -J

You want some pearls, Claude - here you go ;-) "In the heaven of Indra, there is said to be a network of pearls, so arranged that if you look at one you see all the others reflected in it. In the same way each object in the world is not merely itself but involves every other object and in fact is everything else. In every particle of dust, there are present Buddhas without number." s

The sound of a bird singing very very early in the morning when it's still dark and quiet out.. there can be nothing better than that. This is why I moved out of NYC - because I couldn't have it. This, and not being able to see all the stars above.

Shanti, All this is very nice but it seems a bit incompatible with what you wrote earlier about nursing mothers: "I also personally want to vomit when I see a mother feeding. Why should I see her breast with someone snorkling away on it. I find it totally repulsive. I really cannot bear it when I see this. It makes my stomach churn. It looks like a little leech and I hate that sucking soun
