    Are we, here at RF, in a safe place for mental debate and impartial referees?


    Are spiritual leaders, ie., yeshua, siddhartha, mohammed, a type of spiritual warrior?


    or are we just tilting at windmills?

    Spiritual warrior tends to have a more limited meaning but I would agree with your broadening the phrase to apply to others.

    Who do you see as referees and why would you place such trust in another you didn't really know?
    I imagine some see themselves as such and some explicitly say they are, just as we have political factions doing the same thing and just as religiously (though some will never admit it).
    This comes across as "are we wasting our time posting anti-religion threads if religious people don't show up and argue"

    OK

    hmmmm, wasn't intended that way.

    anti-religious people can have spiritual beliefs. mental is just a synonym for spiritual. everyone has a belief system that they operate from, or a mental order that they act from.


    mental is a synonym for subjective
    open-minded is a synonym for objective

    Does the title title guarantee impartiality to you?

    I have no idea how they reached that conclusion. I am very "mind" driven, and there is nothing spiritual about my views.

    I am in constant battle for my soul. Which mean I have trouble with the idea of suicide and If I commit suicide I damn to eternal hell.

    the idea of a hell suggests that the minds entrapped there are still suffering from the same self-ignorance that they suffered from before; when in the chemical body.

    without a body there is no 5 senses from which to experience external things. what ever suffering is occurring it is something within the mind. the mind has attached itself to something. so the cessation of the chemical body senses isn't going to alleviate the disturbance in the mind. one can run and hide from external threats but you can't hide from self.

    Well you can't really run away from yourself. Now can you?

    no but people try in all kinds of ways addictions, and other behaviors that keep their attention elsewhere.

    Referring to Jesus and Buddha as warriors is a stretch in almost any sense. Muhammad, on the other hand, led armies. How "spiritual" he was is a bone of some contention.

    love is here. I AM camelot
