  2. Thanks for trying - I think it's just beyond me.
  3. It reminds me a bit of verse 44 from GOT It’s not that the person is not forgiven, it’s more of an metaphor for the nature of energy and how when you hold onto stuff, it will lead one to suffer.
  4. it’s more like the energy is going to flow, whether we want it to or not… the idea of “welcoming it” is more surrendering to the wave or getting knocked around.
  5. So who is really 'holding onto bad stuff' if the response to not being welcomed is to level a veiled threat/ominous warning? It's seems like the response to not being welcomed from a place of non-attachment is to just wish the current place well and move on to the next place...
  6. Good question! The overall tone of the verses I posted seems to be about keeping our center, and not getting caught up in issues. Sodom was destroyed and ceased to exist, yet to bear issues is to suffer ongoing. Perhaps these two verses are a warning as to holding onto bad stuff, not forgiving, and not accepting the “kingdom of God” (truly being present)
  7. I guess broadly all verses do. How so specifically in verses 11-12?
  8. Seems to be about energy work and sharing presence…
  9. Would love to hear what people think of these verses.

    I like your perspective. Well said!

    Freedom may be an illusion. But if we make a scale from the simplest creatures and elements to humans. We can see it becoming more and more real. Our energy is our ability to choose what changes we create. Loose all energy - become like a raindrop. Absolutes turn into each other, freedom no exception, but I'd rather not.

    So we have no free will? Everything we do is predestined to happen?

    Every drop of rain changes the whole universe, but it has no choice in what changes it creates, no freedom.

    very nice!!!!!! There is unlimited energy with the Dao path… no need to have worry about having less or more, as it’s always flowing.

    Yin and Yang? Diplomacy and Force? Give them a path to what they want, in a way that benefits you. Or force them to do what you want, then constantly spend energy to keep things this way. Give things a path to their natural goal - they'll voluntarily keep going there. Spend energy to change the world and maintain your changes - have less energy. A good path can even increase our available energy. But unlike a sage who can see the heart of any creature, regular people aren't infallible.

    Here’s the rest of the verse. If you think of hands, usually the right hand is dominant and strong, left is passive/receiving. But maybe as the verse says, “Peace and quiet are dear to his heart”

    TTC Chapter 31

    Good weapons are instruments of fear; all creatures hate them. Therefore followers of Tao never use them. The wise man prefers the left. The man of war prefers the right. What's "the left", peace, love? Something that's the opposite of fear
  18. Thanks Trish! I forgot about the last line Jesus spoke, “Into your hand I commit my spirit”. That says it all.
  19. Great replies!!!! For me, the present moment is always getting deeper. I notice when I think about the past or the future, it's in my own mind. Plus, when you really drop into the moment, it is a profound energetic experience. I think the heart opening thing that Siva brought up is fascinating. While the work is never done, I think it's a profound shift for some people. I know for me that experience was simply seeing that there was only here and now. Its when the real work starts IMO. I heard something cool the other day... When Mary Magdalene approached
  20. i used to think it is just some bullshit like "how/where/when do we live if not here and now", but now i feel its when nothing is really important. no reason ever needed to do anything or nothing. maybe i'm just swinging from one end to the other. Tips from my experience: find the root/cause of things that happens around "me", realize who create the drama. It will eventually happen if we learn to broaden our awareness by meditation (simply doing nothing and observe)
  21. Here's a talk from Tau Malachi that takes it a step further:
  22. Totally agree with what you're saying there - it's a daily practice of going within and surrendering, come what may. Our outward life might or might not change as a result, but letting go of any attachment to it being a certain way is key.
  23. I like your perspective that our understanding changes. Yes, it truly feels to be “home” within ourselves once we discover what that really means. Curious what you make of the verse above (particularly line 24.) Any thoughts on the life saved / life lost?
