Martin, "believe" (excuse the hackneyed expression) or not, I was never able to gauge your degree of sensitivity and spirituality until you jumped over here to this side. It was then, and only then, that I was able to appreciate you as a human being. It pleased me mightily to discover that you have high intelligence and depth of character. Just a few days ago, I read an article by a Lo

Cleo, good to hear from you again. It is precisely because I am loaded to the gills with beliefs that I am at the point of suffocation. For instance, Cleo, suppose that a group of persons have a particularly painful type of cancer. All of them howl with pain constantly, but one is stoic about his condition and keeps quiet. Does this mean he is suffering any less than those who scream in agony?

Dear Guy, I have read the Hindu story of the Mahabharata War and various commentaries on this ancient war between Subjectivism and Objectivism, Light and Darkness, the Asuras (Assyrians) and Devas (Vedic People), such as "Jaya: The Original Nucleus of Mahabharata," by Ram Chandra Jain. The details about and commentaries on that war affected me so deeply, that it's a miracle that I didn

Hello, again, everybody: I think that this posting, though it deals with varying perceptions of social class, different political outlooks, perceptions of current events, and the like, appropriately deals with the Inner Space of all of us. Contributor Rob (Milo) told me that he/she (I don't know which, but I'll use "he" until I find out) could not understand or empathize with my inhere

Rob, a few years ago, I attended a conference of different Japanese Buddhist sects, regarding the effect that American culture will eventually have on the whole world. People often don't realize that when they say the word "American," they're referring to every nation on earth. During this conference, all the participants were wearing white wigs, just like those of British judges and la

Mark, I've read extensive quotes from this book in books I've ordered from India, but I haven't read the book itself. Lately, I've been reducing the amount of books I buy and read. I'm nine years older than my wife and, in all probability, I'll be getting some form of "enlightenment" regarding the validity of my own theories about the afterlife before she will. I am also giving many of

Rob, that was a good song which revealed England's humanity. I would imagine that the English are sad about having lost the English empire. However, the English have had a positive impact on the entire world that is as great, if not greater, than that which Rome and Greece had on European culture. Rob, if the English and the Americans are such devils, why are even our enemies dreaming of obtainin

Rob, there's no better identity than Britain's past. The other night, I was watching on the History Channel how the Japanese treated American and British war prisoners. One Japanese admiral, who was pardoned by the War Crimes court, even ate the liver of an American aviator. How'd you like to have THEM give you a taste of THEIR domination? If you would, talk to the people in Manchuria first. Or s

Andrew, I emphatize with your struggles to become recognized as a writer. However, we would probably be no more successful in a partnership than we would singly. Before I retired from the teaching profession, I made some great profits for years by publishing little booklets and advertising them through small classified ads, requesting that they request information. My little book, Triple Your Int

Rob, you and I both know we're at impasse right now. I'm going to be stubborn about debating with you for a while. About "Logic." That term is even hazier, murkier, and less identifiable than "truth." I also neglected to state to Kees that Movu (Moab) is really a small group of mountains in Kashmir. According to the Kashmiris, not to me, Moses or Osiris is buried on Nebu hill.

Kees, the traditions of the North Indian Kashmiris teach that Osiris and Moses were one and the same person. According to the Kashmiris, Pharoah Ramses once attacked Kashmir. He was accompanied by Osiris and his wife Isis. However, the Egyptians had to return to Egypt because of lack of supplies. This is a very interesting story. Also, Moses (Osiris) died in Kashmir and is buried there on the mou

Kees, I wish the Christian establishment would deal with this. In the first place, the idea of a Messiah lay at the heart at the ancient Hindu Kristayana sect. Because all the world's religions do derive from a common source, this common origin should serve as a basis for our finding peace with one another. Here in Southern California, relations between Christians and Buddhists are nearly perfect

Andrew, after I got out of the Marine Corps in 1954, Dad told me to put my nose to the 24 hour a day grindstone in his building construction and real estate business or leave. Years later, he told me he had just been bluffing. He didn't think I'd really do it. I was quite willing to leave the business, but I wasn't so willing to leave the liberality which which he let me share in the profits. I

Rob, in our parting of the ways, I want you to know I'm not a Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, or anything similar. Just because I find wisdom in their teachings doesn't make me one of them. I joined the Catholic Church when I was living in Mexico, just to become acceptable to them. I'm through with "isms," Rob. Gene

Dane, not only does my wife know about that girl by the fountain in Pachuca, Hidalgo, my love affairs with glistening-black, mouth-watering Negro girls while I was living in Dad's apartment houses in Wichita, but many other details. It sounds crazy, but I love my memories of my actions, including the good, bad, and indifferent. Once, when my wife and I were visiting back in Kansas, I went to vi

Rob, I knew that today you and I would arrive at this impasse. I was going to prepare an answer to you ahead of time, but I decided instead to wait to see if my hunch was true. You and I have never hurled hostile words at each other. Let's keep it that way. I have no hard feelings against you, and I'm sure you feel the same way. You've already had the experience of coming up against Dave Lomond,

Andrew, the mystery to me is how did the lives of Christ, Apollo, Mitra, Persian King Cyrus, Krishna and others come to be so similar. Some Hindu authorities think that Krishna went to live in Jerusalem after he died from his impalement on a post or tree, and that Abraham was his brother or cousin. It is probably true that Krishna was Apollo and Apollonius as his other Hindu names, Abolo and Abol

Rob, I don't know how capitalism operates in U.K., where I'm assuming you now live, but in this country, if a guy doesn't make the grade, it's his own fault. Could it be that the "poor folks" are just playing a self-imposed game of victimization? Now, I'm not rich at all. People who knew my family back in Kansas are astonished to see that my wife and I live simply. But as I've said befo

Elizabeth, I would imagine that some of the similarities of different deities in the world are the result of inheritance. For instance, each new Dalai Lama inherits all the traditions and behaviors of his predecessors because he is regardled as an incarnation of Guatama Buddha. A thousand years from now, people will be convinced that this Dalai Lama was himself a God. It could easily be that Jesu

Rob, any time all sides of the question are not considered, hell breaks loose. I'm not rich as my dad was, but for the record, I'm crazy about capitalism. For example, medical treatment here in the USA is so expensive that people without insurance cannot afford it. My wife and I have a fine medical plan but it doesn't include vision and dental. Therefore, when we want glasses, tooth extractions,

Rob, I was reading what you said about "Political Correctness." I can tell you that "Political Correctness" never unifies; it just seeks fragmentation and division. It never seeks peace and understanding among man. Also, it is constantly changing its chameleon-like colors and strategies, in order to wreak more havoc and misunderstanding among human beings. I have read your an

Sherman, here's an interesting and hilarious experience that I once had at the famous Libertad marketplace in Guadalajara, Mexico. I met and talked with a combination witch doctor and herbalist who had a stall in the section for people interested in witchcraft and herbs. He had this sign in front of his stall: "I Guarantee to Turn You Into a Nagual - Or Your Money Cheerfully Refunded!"

Dear Sunbeam, you just added abundantly to what I already wrote about Lord Krishna. As I've said over and over in prior postings, I'm an arch-enemy of the specter of "belief." It destroys people, nations, and hopes and dreams. It never, never, helps mankind in any way, except perhaps in the short run. But I don't reject anybody's ideas and beliefs, either. When a person tells me thin

Fiasco, you were probably weren't corresponding on GH when I was discussing Atlantis. I will not get into such a discussion again, for I'll lose for sure - not for lack of evidence, but just for getting worn down to a nubbin: The Nahuatl name for the Atlantic Ocean is ATLANTONA (Resplendent Lady of the Waters); Atlanteotl (Gods from the Atlantic Ocean).

Deano, the Apaches and the Navajos are among my favorite American Indians. I admire the Apaches for their openness and good natures. I used to have them in my classes in the Southern California high school where I taught. I'd often tease them, saying, "Man, your grandfather was the worst barber I ever had. When he took the hair off my head, it never came back!" Another favorite tribe of

Hello, everyone: Perhaps you'd be interested in reading the results of my research on the similarities between Jesus Christ and Iesus Krishna, taken from my book Jesus and Moses, etal. Both Christ and Krishna descended from Noah. The future births of both men were predicted ahead of time. Christ descended from Abraham. Krishna and Brahm were related. Christ was both Hebrew and Yehudi. Krish

Hoho, I just used the word "Aztec" because they are the Toltecs with whom we are most familiar. Actually, the Aztecs were the last of seven tribes of Toltecs, as I remember. Their chronicles say that they were the last of the seven tribes of Toltecs to settle in the Valley of Mexico. In Nahuatl, "Tollan" means "The Upper World" and appears to derive from the Sanskr

Hi, Everybody: A few days ago, Rob and others were discussing the nature of the Mexican NAGUAL, pronounced NagWAHL. Nahual is not its real pronunciation. Anglo-Americans have picked this up from uneducated Mexicans and allowed it to infiltrate into academia.

Dane, one of my ex-high school students furnished me with more than enough proof that there is such a thing as Karma. Things were always happening to his head. The following are just a few: One day, as he was walking down the street, some gangbangers attacked him, hitting him on the head with some sticks. On another occasion, he went deep-sea fishing on a large boat. When a school of fish start

Rob, I've read many stories about the mind-shaking, supernatural anomalies that happened during "The Christ War." Sometimes, when the federal troops saw those marvels, hundreds dropped their arms and ran to the side of the "Cristeros," afraid of what could happen to them should they continue killing more peasants. In some places, peasants hanging from telephone poles beside ra
