"Please don't assume I want to believe as you, or that I need a guru
or such to tell me what to believe.
To meditate is a function of the mind and body, to try and separate your
'spirit' from your mind and body is a contradiction, as you would have no sense
of the spirit, without the mind and body.
I choose not to separate, but to experience and observe on all levels, (I'm
still learning though).
I'm not asking anyone to believe me. Spirit is separate from
mind/intellect, they are completely different - period. The only one who
can convince you - is you. These are not my beliefs. These things
are what I know through my own personal experiences and the experiences of many
others who practice the grounding and shakra meditations that I do.
We are each drawn to what we can allow ourselves to have. Body has
finite limits. Spirit is limitless. Experience (actually rediscover)
yourself as spirit and you will learn for yourself.
Spud - I'm still learning too. The more I learn the more I find what I
don't know. However, what I practice and experience has carried me through
thick (very thick) and thin and has leveled out the highs and lows. If it
were not for what I've found so far, I'd be dead through alcohol (I still drink
a bit, am not an alcoholic - but was headed in that direction) or the drugs that
they tried to push on me many years ago. Every day is a new learning
experience. Every person I meet is a new learning experience - and yes,
you are learning too. I accept that and I accept that everyone else is
learning too - though I've been a very slow learner at times. lol
So - where does Christianity fit into all of this? Well I've posted
just a little of the teachings of Jesus that I believe but more importantly I
communicate with him daily. You and everyone else can do the same.
He is a tremendous healing presence when you ask him to be with you.
