        You're welcome you made a good statement, when I give someone a like it means one thing "I am in almost complete agreement with your statement" IF only 1/4 of a post I disagree with, I don't push like, I have given out a lot of likes though, even to people I usually can't stand, not you Though, im a bit of a closet communist/socialist, Cheers

        thanks. :) And no probs; coming out of the closet as a red is tough. I'm in the UK, but I imagine the US is harder.

      I don't know if you've had much familiar with "outhouse", but he pulls this kind of arrogant nonsense all the time. I've had him at least three times on "ignore", and I just put him back on again and plan on keeping him there.

      BTW ... in the space of my life I have studied and practiced sufism (with a sheikh), buddhism (with various lamas), hinduism (with a variety of swamis) and most recently Iyengar yoga. Iyengar yoga is awesome. Lucy (in the sky) was my initiating guru .

        Lama Traleg Rinpoche said to me " Awareness is not the final goal. It is the portal to the Transcendent Reality"

        Advaita turiyam is the hindu term.

      Wow, isn't life strange ? Talking with you has been a worthwhile and illuminating experience ! We almost got off to a bad start, LOL. As it often said to me as a youngster using I Ching ... "perseverance furthers" . More power to you !

    I have a long very strong interest in religions, almost an obsession at times. I try very hard to be the best person I can be, to me religion is about being a better person than we would be without it.

    I have worked most of my adult life in the musical instrument business, building baroque German keyboards called clavichords, and restoring, buying and selling violins.

    I have a long history of substance abuse, mostly marijuana, and am very happy to have 7 years sober, at it has really changed my life for the better, I suffer from Manic depression caused by harder drug abuse in the 80s, but now thanks to my sobriety my illness is in remission, although I still have to take medication for it religiously.

    Sobriety, Honesty, vegetarianism, non violence are some of the most important lessons I have learned from my religious studies.

    Signature

    (In my opinion) Insincere Prayers reach insincere "gods". Sincere Prayers reach the True GOD. If you are worshiping a male "god" of Jealousy, Rage, Anger, and Intolerance, I suggest your prayers might be better redirected. I address God as the LORD GOD Embodiment of Truth and Wisdom, a God of Goodness, Love, Peace, Forgiveness and Sustenance, and to me GOD has to be more Female. I think God has some male side too, but only a Female can give birth to life, and without the Female side of GOD in our hearts we may not be seeing the full picture.
