JohnCalvin
JohnCalvin There is no one keeping records up there. The records are here in the heart and I am going to have to deal with them. That is far more painful than having a record keeping God up in the skies. So I or anyone who is setting out on the path to enlightenment will eventually become absolutely impeccable in every thing that they do. Is it because of a fear of damnation or of the punishment of wrathful God? Or because one has sinned and hasn't asked forgiveness? No, no, no and no. These are only excuses that lead us away from the real problem. The truly enlightened person will see that every action has a reaction with which they must deal. Not only do we do unto others but as we do unto others we are doing unto ourselves. And if a person is wise then they are not going to do stuff that will cause them to have to later face it and resolve it and balance it in their soul.

datta
datta Who am I? I am in this universe as much as it is in I. What is I? I is sphere full of love. Imagination is more important than knowledge for all that we know is just an imagination. The language and the medium of this communication are also products of imagination. Reality as it seems can be termed as implementation of imagination. It is not mind over matter, it is only mind that matters. The theory of everthing is that there is absolutely nothing, God is absolute state of mind, soul that is everything and nothing, we are relative states of mind, bodies that are something in between. Happiness and sorrow are relative states of mind, absolute state of mind is peaceful.Truth is simple, accepting it is not. Be in Love to Rest in Peace.

ChristianHeretic
ChristianHeretic This and this alone is true religion: To serve thy brethren. This is sin above all other sin: To harm thy brethren. In such faith is happiness. In lack of it is misery and pain. Blessed is he whose life is lived thus ceaselessly in serving God. Bearing others' burdens and so alone is life, true life, to be attained. Nothing is hard to him who, casting self aside, thinks only this: How may I serve my fellow man? Tulsidas -- 16th Century (translated by the Mahatma Gandhi)

bartholomew If you exclude anyone from the Kingdom of God, that one person you exclude will be you. "All other goals are at the cost of God." A Course in Miracles "Your worth is not established by teaching or learning, your worth is established by God." A Course in Miracles "Fear condemns and love forgives. Forgiveness thus undoes what fear has produced, returning the mind to the awareness of God." A Course in Miracles
