deep mystery
    #375613 - 08/21/01 01:45 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

"God is an invention of Man. So the nature of God is only a shallow mystery. The deep mystery is the nature of Man."
(Nanrei Kobori, quoted in Sagan & Druyan _Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors_)

That is a quote from a person who is ignorant of a most perspective-changing truth and what comes with it. A person who believes in that quote is in the same boat as the person who said it in the first place was. There is no deep mystery anywhere if the mystery is known to be. Who the hell cares about mystery anyways? If you know one thing, you can know everything. Chasing after "mysteries" says alot more about what kind of person you are than does inspire any real interest.

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

"if you meet the buddha on the road, kill that fellow!"
(and while we're at it, let's nail that rabbi to a tree for insurrection and/or blasphemy...)

Which rabbi are you talking about? Do you mean the one that is about to go on trial for having a hit put on his wife? I'm not usually one to judge people, but I think its bad form for a religous leader to hire a guy to execute his wife. Mabey she deserved it, I don't know. If I was married for 20 years I would probably want to kill my wife too, but it is a little unseemly to try to lead your flock in any moral sense after you have had someone killed. This might not even be the rabbi you were talking about,gnrm23, but I brought it up anyway.

I did acid once, white boy gave it to me. He said "you gonna be trippin", I said Shit, I ain't goin' nowhere without my luggage.

no, the rabbi i mentioned was a carpenter, live in palestine ~ 2000 years ago, his followers (& a johhny-come-lately named saul/pual) started a cult that changed the world, name of joshua/yeshua/yeshai/issa/jesus or something like that...
