      thanx for the star and the mentions...and I kinda like your `Cosmic Consciousness`

      knocked out a poor explanation of my interpretation, can't figure those `gods` though !

        About figuring out those `gods`. Don't sweat it !
        Just before Sai baba died He declared:
        The name and form given to God are mere imaginations and not real. God is permanent with neither a beginning nor an end. He is permanent in the form of ATMA. To assign a name and form to such an embodiment of Atma is merely human imagination and illusion.
        I like this info.

        As to the ATMA:
        Part of `being` is the stuff of inner self, the `spirit` within one,
        that piece of the content of one's true being, the `soul` of one,
        that which leaves the consciousness and cognizance behind.
        That journal into the nothingness of the Earths Stuff and spirit.

        And thank you for your honest and pure reply. You just gave them back the acid they threw on you. I call that karma [they had it coming one day or the other; at least that is what I believe]

        5 years ago I went to church (after 20 years not) and challenged Jesus "if there is 1 person humble enough to say `in my opinion` without stating the Bible as a fact for non Christians also, I will continue going to that church". Of 4000 Christians there was none.

        That is why I gave a "winner".

        Thank you for sharing your experience. I am sorry out of 4000 you did not meet any Christians with humility. Sometimes, I think people can discourage us, I like to remind myself that people, even those claiming to be Christians fall short, but they are not Jesus. Jesus is always loving and true and has never let me down. Have a good night.

        Thank you. I went last week a bit hard on certain persons as regards to this belittling they do [imposing their guilt etc on others] that she "threatened to report me"

        Of course I was right there, but she has this green sticker
        "paid member", so I take it 1 notch down. Not sure if I can stay quiet though

        They do their evangelizing thing on us
        We do our re-educating thing on them

        Ive done the same with a liar, i called him out on a deliberate and hurtful lie and received a warning for it. C'est la vie.

        Im a paid member, i don't think it makes much difference to admin, rules are rules whether paid up or not. I try to keep to them but there are some really odious posters on here who play the rules to their advantage.

        No and you were kind of sweet, hence the heart
        But he kind of took it totally different .
        If one believes Bible is the only truth then communication blocks
        If there is no "love-flow" ..... "not much to like" ... I guess

    Sai Baba [Indian poorna avatar] is my sole beloved refuge

    Sai Baba:
    There is one religion, the religion of Love
    There is one caste, the caste of Humaity
    There is one language, the language of the Heart
    There is one God, and He is Omnipresent


    Bible: Mark 12:29
    The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our
    God is one Lord: And you shall love the Lord your God with all
    your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with
    all your strength: this is the first commandment. And the second
    is like, namely this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
    There is none other commandment greater than these


    Koran: 5:48
    To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed,
    He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He
    intended] to test you in what He has given you; so advance to [all
    that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will
    [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.

    Silence solves the tough questions in life ... IMHO
