On Jungian concept of Deity – Walter Bagot
i thought this was a very well thought out " Jung's concept on god was not the existence of a deity but rather a mythology that varied throughout the world, often defined by custom and/or ritual of which the genesis was the psyche's attempt to find wholeness in and of itself and secondly union with… Continue reading On Jungian concept of Deity – Walter Bagot
Human experience……. Let’s start from the beginning……..
..... to be continued..... Every statement made, should really have a “codicil” ... or a conditional clause such as “apparently”, or “it seems like” as the first word(s). This is because, there is nothing i know of that is so absolute or true, as to never change, nor to be so true that some other… Continue reading Human experience……. Let’s start from the beginning……..
Religion – One on One :)
Religion as it has been known, is simply some one else's ideas on their relationship with the "-" (i.e. Ground of Being)....... different names for it, different faces on it.... but as one teacher said, "Borrowed feathers don't grow"..... someone else cant pee for you, and someone else cant eat for you.... and no one… Continue reading Religion – One on One 🙂

Expanding our concepts of “God”
Below is the world view which i have concluded (for myself) is the way to see ourselves and our relationship to ourselves, each other, the universe, and Oneness: "Home" is “located” inside of "me", and inside of all beings and things, while that being has breath; while that thing has mass, and is in space… Continue reading Expanding our concepts of “God”
Awareness, Consciousness,Sentient Beings – Thoughts – Jundo Cohen
Jundo Cohen No comment on what some of the Tibetan schools may or may not say. However, as to Huang Po's "One Mind," and even the Yogachara interpretations (of which there are more than one), it is just not clear at all if that means some kind of "Universal Consciousness" like a Godhead or "Cosmic… Continue reading Awareness, Consciousness,Sentient Beings – Thoughts – Jundo Cohen
The Five Skandhas – The Sense Apex
A personal view on the Five Skandhas. The overall system or "Grand System" seems like a fibre-optics system, with all the fiber ends (representing individual awareness located like a point in space and time) shining the same image as is "sent out" by the light source.
