I wonder where is the line between experiencing contact with TA through those practices, while reaching samadhi like states in superconsciousness and falling into subconscious trans like states and getting a little away from God fragment? My lead is that difference is because of intention. One shou...

94:9.6 (1038.4) Buddhism is a living, growing religion today because it succeeds in conserving many of the highest moral values of its adherents. It promotes calmness and self-control, augments serenity and happiness, and does much to prevent sorrow and mourning. Those who believe this philosophy li...

So called "modern" religion, especially so the Christian churches, are plagued by 2 persistent and quite primitive traditions of creed and dogma. First is the rather bizarre earth centric beliefs that our world is the center of the universe and we are the only people in the universe, despi...

Creator Sons are the children of Paradise and the Existential Deities. They are also experiential beings, and bridge the gap between those who are perfect and those who are perfecting, between eternity and time, and between the source of all potential and the actualization of potential. 33:1.2 (366....

Indeed so. Before he was our precious Jesus, Son of Man, Michael was the Creator Son, Son of God, of our local universe, Nebadon. Jesus walked among us as both Son of Man and Son of God in one and the same person. A teacher. And a student. A friend. And Father. A brother and sibling child of the Fir...

Yoga and meditation (and their associated breathing techniques) help with the eight fold path and pursuit of mental stability and the purification of mind from the poisons of anxiety and fear and greed and jealousy and materialism and all related mind-morbidities which are discordant retardants of t...

8. The Buddhist Faith 94:8.1 (1036.3) To become a Buddhist, one merely made public profession of the faith by reciting the Refuge: “I take my refuge in the Buddha; I take my refuge in the Doctrine; I take my refuge in the Brotherhood.” 94:8.2 (1036.4) Buddhism took origin in a historic person, not i...

I think the point of 94:7.2 is that truth, spiritual growth, wisdom, and enlightenment are mindal. Yoga can, at best, facilitate a healthy body (material temple) for the mind to become spiritized, but the body does not itself spiritize the mind or soul. One may be a yogi and yet not be enlightened o...

According to the Urantia Papers, Jesus was fully human. He was also Divine. Our local universe Creator and Michael Son. The ruler of ten million worlds like our own. One of 700,000 Local Universe Creator Sons in the universes of time and space. https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper...

So.... the Gospel as taught by the Master is not the Christian or the Jesusonian gospels really. Neither of those. The Gospel of the Kingdom as taught by Jesus is truly the Universal Gospel of Creation. It is not about and not for only the peoples of our world and its not about any particular relig...

The evolutionary progress of each person contributes to the evolutionary attainment of all persons...and Experiential Deity too. The failure of any person to achieve eternal perfecting experience retards the evolutionary progress and momentum of potential actualization. 8) 117:4.4 (1283.6) The human...

As I have pointed out, it is interesting how the topics on "Experiential Wisdom" and "Evolution" and "What is Assurance" all intersect and overlap!! Experiential Wisdom is the very foundation of Evolution!! And Evolution is the root of Experiential Wisdom expression!! ...
