    A little something I wrote for the Divine Mother

    Howdy! I just felt like writing this out and figured I'd share it here. Hope you like it. The Tea Gathering I once awoke to find my room filled with so many of my great loves. Jesus sat beside Buddha who sat beside Nanak who sat beside Rumi who sat beside Eckhart who sat beside Zhuangzi who...

    Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord, Syncretism and relationship

    Howdy ho! At this point I may as well call myself Syncretism cat. Recently I was meditating and praying as is my usual activity. Sometimes I mix up which form of God I focus on though usually it is Kali, Shiva, Waheguru etc. This time I decided to use Christ as the center focus and use the...

    What would you like to share about your religion/worldview?

    Howdy! Being a cat I am ever curious. What do you want to share about your religion? What do you wish people would ask you about your religion? Are there any assumptions made that drive you nuts? What about common misconceptions you would like to correct? I think I would like to share that...

    Mixing and Matching Religious Traditions

    Howdy. I've noticed some folks on here seem to have multiple religious tags. I myself would say I have something which incorporates elements from a wide variety of traditions. Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhi to a certain extent even. I have found inspiration in Sufi traditions, Judaism...

    Takeaways from the first Tablet of the Tabernacle of Unity concerning interfaith dialogue

    Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present-day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require. Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and centre your deliberations on...

    A Bouquet of Dirt: New Insight on Karma and How to Bear Adversity

    Introductory Note: Hi all, the article below is the fruit of many months of thinking and has really helped me see things clearly and let go of a lot of past unhappiness.

    Sign post me

    hi, new to the page, was wondering what religion or philosphy best pigeon holes my views on life/death. I believe that the universe will reveal itself when we die. Our enegry goes back to the universe and used again, sort of like reincarnation. Are there any religions, teaching with similar...

    Hello, I'm a theist and atheist at the same time

    Yes, that is how I define myself. I'm both at the same time, therefore I could as well be none. I don't believe in believe. That being said, I believe that we are all transparent to Nature which we humans make part of. All things known and unknown are plenty as they are, so much so that...

    What can you tell me about Taoism?

    What can you tell me about Taoism, it's practices, it's theology and it's philosophy? How does one become a Taoist? What makes one a Taoist?

    IS there an eastern/pagan solution to our religious delimas?

    I've met people who were once Christians or Jews among other things that turned to eastern traditions or paganism because of the issues they have had with their original religion. I'm sure someone will be tempted to say "Well atheism was the original belief they had." because you aren't...

    Religion with a touch of Nihilism/Cynicism/Existentialism

    I was just wondering if anyone of you thought there were any religions that are inherently in tune with one of those 3 concepts? Taoism popped into my head to a certain extent but I'm not sure how far you could legitimately take that.

    Alan Watts: Guru or Fraud?

    I've met a number of people over the years that have loved Alan Watts. I've also met a good number of people who think Alan Watts is nothing more than a fraud who knew close to nothing about what he was talking about. What do you think of Alan Watts? I have to say I personally think he's fine...

    Hello Everyone! My dad and I and how all started.

    Hi! I have been here before in 2010 under another username. I will introduce myself again: For several years my darling and most beloved father suffered from Alzheimer's. In 2009 we have to put him in a nursing home as it was very difficult to take care of him at home. It's only mum and I and we...

    Does One Have to Be Taoist to Follow Tao?

    Does being in harmony with Tao require that you are Taoist? Does it require that you are even familiar with the concept of Tao by name? I am inclined to answer "no" to both of these questions. "Tao" is an approximation. A placeholder for something that can't quite be described. It's quite...

    Information on Wuism (Chinese Shamanism)

    As some may know, Daoism originally grew out of the ancient Chinese shamanic tradition called Wuism. What I would like to know is if anyone knows of any good books, or possibly websites on the subject. I'm very interested in learning more about it's history and practice. Peace.
