God
    #424370 - 10/13/01 07:26 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I suppose the following is of no use to anyone whatsoever.

What is God?
God is simply one answer to all the most important questions,
an answer so simple it is impossible to explain,
so subtle it is impossible to remember,
so powerful it can make the whole world disappear,
so dangerous it is instantly fatal.

God is a concept by which we measure our pain.

well, this is something I've been thinking about that supports the idea of religion. Well, anyways, why would women have hymens(cherries) if they weren't supposed to be good and virgins and all? I'm not sure.. but I don't think any other animals have them. Just something I have been thinking about.

thats john lennons quote isnt it?

cherries-it would have a biological function if you read up on it
Why have they got vaginas at all? why arent we all the same sex? why dont we all just have a little uretha on our heel instead of having complex reproductive organs? because despite religion we were made for having sex no doubt about it

yeah i always thought that was strange also. simple organisms are often asexual, which seems to me, if evolution was simply "survival of the fittest", to be the preferred method of reproduction, but instead more complex organisms have more difficult and involved reproductive processes. maybe it's this way to reinforce the importance of cooperation and communication between complex lifeforms, to help guide them along in the development of their free will. since we don't run on autopilot like cells. ornot.

love is god... and god is in us... and we are here to experience god in every possible way... love is gods purest form... and what better way is there to experience love than making love to the woman you love... it is the most powerful experience of all...
we humans have gone so far as to think we couple because of our surviving instinct... which is wrong... we couple because of love, which is the only true instinct...

God left us with a whole lot of questions and no answers.

T.V.s exc. give us a whole lot of explainations, which we confuse for the answers, and so our minds rot.

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.

who's blaming? thank God for riddles! man was born a problem-solver, it's built right into his frontal-lobes. it's our birth-right, our heritage, don't you know? i can't think of any other species that has it quite the same, really.... the problem-solver, the culture generator, the time-binder built right into Reality. i like God the Mystery, not God the answer. you can take away my life, but you can't take away the koan that breathes life through my mind!

I am surprized to hear it from you, Shroomism. You invest so much value in dualistic concepts such as salvation (of whom?) evil aliens (they are God too, no?) and other dimentions (dimentions of what?)... How do you reconsile the two approaches?

Everything is part of the same Creation. Evil, Good, are just different aspects of the same thing.

>>(dimentions of what?)

Dimensions of consciousness. Or, different states of being, or; lower and higher vibrational frequencies of sub-atomic particles.

So you are merely a part of God, yes?
