The Leader of "Deepak"
    #2765240 - 06/05/04 03:13 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Why does the author of "Ageless Body, Timeless Mind" look all of his 57 years? Does he just appear to be aging normally as a deception, or can if be *gasp* that his books are actually fraudulent pseudo-science?

What about his latest money-making creation "Perfect Health"? Is his body-fat low? Is he wrinkle-free? Can he run a marathon?  :rolleyes:

"We?re not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences, we are actually spiritual beings having occasional human experiences."

I have them about 24hrs/day on a regular basis.But I do not believe either position excludes the other.Is it possible to have human objective material experiences and also experience trasitory moments which "feel" as though they trancend the material world.Should we discount what humans have put so much meaning into? Or pehaps a new way of looking at pragmatic realities relaytionship with trasitory "spiritual states" is in order.Simply tossing the notion aside discounts to many respected minds and thousands of years of human history.
I am personaly comfortable with the notion of the possibilty of a "greater" existance" I just realize that I still have to work for food and shelter and little material things like just having slid backwards on gravel into the blade of my tractor and pulping my ankle. Not spiritual until as I was bleeding to death a very clear voice said "Stop the bleeding if you wish to live" This snapped me from my dismay and I applied direct pressure to the artery(I reached into the wound and pinched it shut). Now survival is a strong instinct for me but the voice I heard seemed very real and very much "outside" myself. So who is to have a FINAL answer? No one it will always remain subjective and personal.

Sorry to hear of your injury.

Why is it the worst accident stories ALWAYS seem to revolve around farm machinery? Those whirling and pulverizing blades seem to attract human bodies like moths to a flame...

No lie.  Some guy in town just fed himself to a woodchipper.
It makes me feel weird just talking about it.
