    Simply the recognition the there are persons other than humans, that those persons can be basically anywhere and anything, and that all persons deserve respect...Not sure that recognizing interconnection and beauty requires conversion at all...

    May you find your way pleasant:cool:

    That's very much like I pray. And then I find my mind wandering and I have to apologize and say, "Oh, Father, I'm so sorry. I lost my train of thought. What was it I was saying to you now?"

    Achieving higher level of consciousness is big chunk of scriptures. Christ Jesus said to worship Father in Spirit as Father is Spirit. It says

    ‘Our Father who is in heaven,
    Hallowed be Your name.

    10‘Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done,
    On earth as it is in heaven.'
    There is no the Kingdom of Father on Earth, Jesus says Father is in Heaven, only way you can approach Father is with your Spirit as reality, e.g. in truth. Come on out.

    I thought Muslim women were banned from the Mosque sanctuary. They have to remain in a different room altogether .

    This was a question because I wanted to draw others in. There are many ways and I make no demands on anyone.

    It varies from Mosque to Mosque. I've been places where we were in a different room and could not even see the one who offered Prayer. In another place we were separated by a low wall of bookcases. In the time of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH there was a round tent, and they all went in one door with the men on one side and the sisters on the other. Eventually there were two doors.

    Not surprisingly, the shatun had his way, perverting the worship and the men were in front and the women in back. In some parts of the world women were not allowed into the Mosque at all. Saudi Arabia was that way at one time but I do not know about today?

    In California and in the UK, there are now women only Mosques. I imagined that caused a great fitnah (uproar), but the men brought it on themselves.

    Ahéhee' (Thank You). Native Navajo language is impossible for those who have not learned it as a child. :) Some of the sounds are said while deeply inhaling.

    Depends of which part of Saudi Arabia you live in, if I am not mistaken.

    I'm well-endowed, so if I were just wearing a speedo at the beach, then other men would become jealous of me or intimidated by me; out of modesty for avoidance of any hard feelings towards me, I'd have too cover myself with additional attire .

    An average sized human being is merely approximately 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000003 percent the size of the observable universe. Hence, a mighty all-encompassing being likely wouldn't care that much about how or what any comparatively insignificant sized human does.

    Me too.

    but as long as I remember to address what I'm talking about to the Right Guy? (and to those who think MY 'Right Guy" is not the 'real' Right Guy, I think He still listens. He knows Who He Is) it's all good. I've used Tevye's example all my life, since before I first saw "Fiddler." It was very good to see that someone knows how it's really done. ;)

    The term repentance has lost it's flare, people equate it with religiosity these days.
