Hi - I have just created a new website/forum for the discussion of the mystical experience known as the Dark Night of the Soul. If you are interested in this or are experiencing it yourself and want to talk about it please visit the forum and share your story :) darknightofthesoul.org

Hmm, seems my posts mysteriously disappeared. I asked if there were any links to online reviews of Talisman. I was dismayed to find it unavailable on my recent visit to town.

I have been thinking about other ways that the light impressed me. Other concepts that were given were 'we are pulses of infinity', we are the stretching of infinity that produces appearances as the substance is expanded, like a balloon. A passage from Isaiah kept recurring on me; I am the Lord, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the

It begs the question, when is it time to return? When you hear the call surely, when you begin to see through the illusion and you pine for God. In the labyrinth there is a tiny silver cord, you can find it and begin to follow it out of the maze. And as you die to the world and begin the merging you realise there was never anything to escape from, the silver cord is really a tiny ember of Li

A flawless demolition of the caricature of the Christian religion sustained by both literalists and non-believers - it is most welcome.

I was toying with some ideas tonight and came up with the following, I'd appreciate it if someone could check it for errors. I was talking with someone about an afterlife and he said that we would surely all die regardless when the universe itself dies due to entropy or whatever the latest theory is. I said well maybe the inhabitants of an adjacent universe would take pity on us and resurrect

Hi Ima, For what it's worth, IMHO that is as close as we can get to an explanation in language. The exact same truth was revealed to me way before I ever had any interest in anything spiritual or philosophical, during an intense and prolonged vision of the light that changed me forever. The light faded and the vision passed but I still remember the closest formulation I could make of it. Tho

I have not done what? Dreamt? Of course I've dreamt I don't know why you would say such a thing, and my experience of the dream is that in relation to my physical body, I have gone nowhere, even though I may have travelled many miles in dream space. You can turn your arguments right around and say how do you know the dream is more real? If I give priority to this space it is because it is mor

I saw an interview with the writer a long time ago and he said the central theme was the Eckhart quote that I mentioned earlier; "If you're frightened of dying and you're holding on, you'll see demons tearing your life away. If you've made your peace, then the demons are really angels, freeing you from the earth." He wanted to build his film around this.

13. WAKE UP
Ok let's say this was a dream of sorts then, a clue to the nature of which we find in miniature, in our dreams, lucid or otherwise. What could we expect from an analysis of the dream substance? Would it be better to wake up? Are they mutually exclusive? I imagine a complete self-contained description of the dream world would be possible - what would be the danger of this? What would be the cons

Have you ever had a dream inside a dream? Apparently they can indicate mental health problems, but I have them quite frequently, at least a few times a month and they've often gone as deep as four dreams within the dream. This happens particularly with nightmares, if something is too harrowing I can usually will myself out of it, but sometimes it seems as though I have ended the dream and woken

In such a scenario as I described, the awakening would appear as sychronicity - an impinging on the dream of full awareness which manifests as a clearer bonding, bringing together seemingly disparate parts of the whole. This would appear strange but it is to be expected as the dreamscape is both infinitely vast and of no distance at all, and awakening would not care for the particularities of dis

In a dream the angels and demons, the characters the locations etc appear on a stage. In that projection they appear to have their own independant existence but really they are the separate elements of one being - you. You are the one factor that permeates every element of your dream, you are everywhere and nowhere. Sometimes you are an observer, sometimes you take on an identity. I have read fa

Hi Deb, It's more of a thought experiment than a dream that one might actually have, although yes I too have occasionally had dreams in which I was as lucid as I am now, and even at some points aware that I was dreaming and aware of reality while maintaining consciousness in the dream. It is wonderful what freedom and joy that brings. Let's say that you were dreaming right now. How would an an

What would such an analysis reveal? Say it was crystal clear, as real as, and indistinguishable from, waking consciousness. What if you were to open a physics lab in the dream, to find out what was going on. What kind of results might you expect? When we dream we can go everywhere, we can search up mountains, through oceans, the stars, vast and fantastical landscapes. We can travel for miles,

I'm sorry am I missing something here? Most of the year on a clear night you can see Venus anytime you want against a much clearer DARK background, usually it's the brightest thing in the night sky apart from the moon. And yet everyone is getting exciting about seeing it when it is passing in front of the sun as a tiny black speck where you can only see it if you are willing to go blind. ~ see

Just because there is a theory that the garden of eden is in iraq doesn't mean that's why Bush invaded. Why would he? Just because it's mentioned in the Old Testament, there's no prophecy or dictate to find or conquer the garden of eden in the bible, the New Testament, which is what all Christians follow doesn't even mention it. So why go to all that effort? His motive may be religious in som

This makes more sense than the original story which I just found unbelievable. To think that anti-semitic groups of french men visit Aushwitz to gloat at all the dead jews is just, nonsense. And a group of 3 attacking 50? It is surely a fabrication - and they couldn't resist a xenophobic anti-european dig, "This was another reminder that in Western Europe there is sympathy for dead Jews;
