Quote from: Len on October 26, 2013, 11:45:00 PMWhat is required for this is a pure and constant connection with the Heart, which is an individual reflection/piece/fractal of the Supreme Spirit, whose source of energy is infinite and inexhaustible. The methods and tools for doing so are writ large and clearly (although in various forms and manners of speech) in every sacred Teaching throughout the World, the specifics of which we love to discuss right here...
QuoteSo glad to be here Len, I know I am in the right place with all you wonderful folk, I am learning a lot, as well as getting lots of validation from what is being said, and you all seem to have a deep understanding of spiritual topics and concepts, along with wisdom and understanding, yet humble and patient
Quote from: Service2others on October 29, 2013, 09:09:30 PM My take on God is that he/she gives us the tools to evolve spiritually but it is totally up to us as to our intent to evolve. I would love a personal God, who I could converse with, be tutored by, and be there for me and to guide me. But alas, the entity we call God, is quite impersonal and seems very aloof at times. Even when you think you are on the path, many obstacles are placed in front of you. ( I am reminded of the book of Job). He almost seems to enjoy a good wager on your faith every so often, just to test your metal yet again. So you see, he is quite impersonal. He seems to almost be uncaring and let Nature take it's course as it were, when it comes to your spiritual evolution.I love conversing with those who have the same deep questions as I, because lets face it, there aren't a lot of us out there. It gives me comfort to know I have like minded souls I can turn to, to also keep me grounded if I spin off at a tangent ( this can happen ) and give me other points of view. I guess in a way, now, that I think about it. God has provided me with guides, personal tutors, and someone I can talk to. And if God is in all of us, I guess I have gone full circle. Maybe I'm already talking to God.

QuoteCould that be a tiny conversation with the One whose name I do not know?

QuoteWhen she was too young to speak I noticed that she did not do what I said or what she heard, mostly, she did what she saw.
QuoteI have often been an unworthy example, or maybe one who shows what not to do. I am learning, slowly by watching and reading from all of you what to do, and how to follow, listening to the inner voice as I travel thru the darkness.
QuoteI think the rough times growing up in Detroit in the sixties and seventies and other things I have passed were there to grind away a little of the giant rock around my soul
Quote"God is not in my heart, I am in the heart of God". or maybe i was for a second.
