Between the lines. Vol 1: an analytical appreciation of the Buddha...

By: Sylvia Bay

Some 2500 years ago in ancient Northeast India, a young, brilliant and courageous man discovered the sublime answer to how the mind works and how to realise unconditioned happiness and bliss. For the next 45 years, he devoted his life to teaching the doctrine that helped bring unparalleled happiness, peace and relief to numerous people long after his death. In time stories began to emerge proclaiming his greatness and his near-divinity status. Over generations and into d...

“Go now and wander for the welfare and happiness of many, out of compassion for the world, for the benefit, welfare and happiness of gods and men. Teach the Dhamma that is good in the beginning, good in the middle and good in the end, with the meaning and the letter. Explain a holy life that is utterly perfect and pure. There are beings with little dust in their eyes who will be lost through not hearing the Dhamma. Some will understand the Dhamma.”

Fundamentos da Cabala: Sêfer Yetsirá : Edição revisada e ampliada

By: Carlos Campani

“Fundamentos da Cabala: Sêfer Yetsirá” busca apresentar e elucidar um dos mais conhecidos textos cabalísticos, o Livro da Criação, Sêfer Yetsirá. O livro procura introduzir os fundamentos da cabala por meio dos temas mencionados no Sêfer Yetsirá. O Sêfer Yetsirá é um dos mais importantes textos cabalísticos e foi escrito, provavelmente, no séc. III da era cristã, sob inspiração gnóstica. Ele versa sobre o misticismo e a tradição mágico-esotérica judaica, descrevendo a cr...

O Sêfer Yetsirá é um texto judaico-gnóstico, provavelmente composto no séc. III, com nítidas influências neopitagóricas, pertencendo ao início da tradição Maase Bereshit. As ideias expressas no texto são próximas da tradição cabalística que aparece no Bahir, e muitos ensinamentos do Bahir e do Sêfer Yetsirá parecem provir da mesma fonte. O aspecto mágico associado ao Sêfer Yetsirá pode ser apreendido dos inúmeros relatos do uso do texto para fins teúrgicos, particularmen...

Should the NT Haustafeln Argue for or against the Ordination of Wo...

By: Simon Bwambale, Ph.D.

Abstract The question whether to ordain women or not threatens the fabric of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The anti and the pro-ordination argument hinge on scripture, the only source of authority for the Remnant Church. This paper has made a critical observation of the arguments and concludes that neither of the camps is right. It has made a brief excursus into the backdrop that may have influenced the prohibitions and observed that it (the backdrop) may not certif...

Why was that Tree in the Garden, Anyway? : Volume Revision 1

By: Joseph Stanley Robertson

Why was that tree in the garden, anyway? Stan Robertson spent his adult life trying to understand what the Bible really was saying. He decided to approach the subject with an open mind and let the Bible itself tell him rather than depending on what tradition says that it means. His book reaches unorthodox conclusions based on well developed and thoroughly justified analyses. His understanding helps reconcile many of the disconnects in traditional views. For instan...

We Christians, as long as we feel that we must keep the Ten Commandments, are shut out of knowing the benefits of grace. Keeping the law demands all of man’s attention leaving no time for anything else. This maintains the veil over our hearts. “The letter kills but the Spirit gives life” (2 Corinthians 3:6). Even though Paul repeatedly says that we are not under the Law, we feel guilty. Guilt steals our freedom and our knowing the benefits of grace and the Divine ...

Neutrosofia Ca Reflectare A Realitatii Neconventionale

By: Florentin Smarandache; Paroiu Tudor

pARadOXisMul - ultima avangardă a mileniului doi 1. Definiţie Paradoxismul este o mişcare internaţională de avangardă în literatură, artă, filozofie, chiar şi ştiinţă, bazată pe folosirea excesivă de antiteze, antinomii, contradicţii, oximorone, parabole, paradoxuri în creaţie. A fost înfiinţat de către scriitorul, artistul, şi omul de ştiinţă Florentin Smarandache în anii 1980 în România, care dorea “lărgirea sferei artistice prin elemente neartistice şi prin experim...

L) Limitele filozofiei Întreaga filozofie este un tautologism: adevărat în virtutea de formă, pentru că orice idee lansată pentru prima oară este dovedită ca adevărată de către iniţiatorul(ii) său(i). Prin urmare, filozofia este goală sau dezinformativă, şi reprezintă a priori cunoaşterea. Se poate afirma: Totul este adevărat, chiar si falsul! Şi totuşi, întreaga filozofie este un nihilism: pentru ca orice idee, odată dovedită adevărată, este mai tîrziu dovedită ...

Why You Should Love God

By: Stephanie Angelini

People often debate whether there is a God. This to-the-point essay delves into an even more important topic: Why you should love God. It includes five compelling reasons (1. It's what you were made for, 2. You need it, 3. He loves you, 4. He is worth it and you can trust him, and 5. You will regret that you didn't) as well as a sixth section on ways to get to know God, as well as a list of resources.

Does God exist? It is a question every person is faced with. However, the real question is not whether God is. Even the devil knows that God exists. The question that matters is not, “Do I believe in God?” but “Do I love Him?” The following pages lay out several reasons why everyone should love him. Knowing the love of God - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit - and loving our fellow human beings through that love, is what every person was made f...

The Creator and The Creation are one.

By: Avinash Patra, Sr.

This uncreated being ascends and descends into every being. From his limb come all things both animate and inanimate: animals of every type, liturgical formulas, hymns and melodies, various meteres, the Four castes of men, the cosmic powers. From his mouth Indra (God) and Agni (fire), from his naval the air, from his head the sky, from his feet the earth, from the ears the points of the compass – nothing, nobody is omitted.

For Those Who Call for Light : Learning How to Think About Religio...

By: Dennis Leroy Stilwell

Learning how to think about religion. Accounting for religious experience and the esoteric spiritual process in our thinking about "God" and the Greater Reality.

Reality Is. Religion is what we make it. Reality Is, prior to mind. Religion is what we make it, with the mind. Religion without experience in the Greater Reality is often worthy of criticism. But that criticism misses the point. Such religion, rightly engaged, is, as we have seen, only a foundation. Without experience in the Greater Reality neither the atheist nor the religionist has the genuine discrimination to either criticize the other or defend him or herself...

Armageddon

By: Paraskevos, Dr.

A spiritual book that tells the real Truth of God. And the true Path to God. A pragmatic Path we could walk easily, smoothly, within a normal human lifetime.

WHO IS GOD ? Then Moses asked God, “When I come to the children and say to them, ‘God has sent me to you.’ And they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ What shall I tell them?” And God answered, “ I AM WHO I AM. Thus you shall say to the children – I AM has sent me to you.” -Exodus, 3 This is how God presented Himself before a prophet. But what actually He meant by that ? What is this I that He refers to? What is His I ?
