Les visible is in hospital right now; he's undergone some surgery.

Will you please pray for him, write to him, or leave any messages of support on any blog post, that the worst of the hurting is now behind him.

Mail: lesvisible@gmail.com

He'd really like that.


Hoping that vis might be transferred from hospital into rehab later today...

I wasn't aware The Flying Spaghetti Monster had a gender.

Since there is no such creature the point is moot. It's good that you don't consider the hundred year gap between the books writing and present time to have any meaning in terms of the consideration. I myself am often annoyed that knights preferred horseback to motor cars and have dismissed the entire Bible for having been writ in Aramaic instead of the far more relevant eubonics.

To standard materialists and/or pseudo spiritualists (but i repeat myself), there are, believe it or not, things even worse than turning loose of their golden security blanket.
Hard to imagine, yes; nonetheless..

"The great secret of the cosmos is controlling sex desire, by doing so you become very powerful."

Controlling Sex Desire

Love To Push Those Buttons said...

Of course I was being sarcastic, but there is a theory that everything imaginable does somewhere exist (or we couldn't think of it), so it is quite possible that the FSM does exist in another realm somewhere. I also must confess to having dreamt of it once (It was quite amenable.), though I must admit I hardly consider it Source; which I can't see as having a gender, thereby always referring to It as It (as opposed to Itt).

Sometimes I wonder if the concept of gender was only provided to give us further reasons for contention. To me, gender identification seems to be a liability, and I haven't had one for years. It's a very pragmatic lifestyle, really. Chicks in general are soooooo high maintenance, ya know? Also rather self-destructive in that, with the toxic crap they put on their faces, and the stupid footwear, amongst other things.

Visible said...

I never really think about that side of things. To me people are just wearing temporary suits. Anything that has the potential for creating contention in my mind is scheduled for elimination or simply eliminated.

As I mentioned in another comment recently when someone said, something like, "Hey, I was only trying to be humorous." I said, "Uh huh and last I looked, sarcasm was a part of humor."; meaning why I used it, with the implication that I was also the recipient.

Since "Source" (whole) implies everything, how might anything be excluded?
Him, her, it, good, bad, pretty, ugly, conscious, unconscious, material, transcendental... all are..

Personal arise from impersonal? "therefore I am" spring from I am not!!?
Or rather, is 'I am not' an exhibition of personal free will (aka) "I am"

Another reason me think 'It' is a better description. 'It' covers everything.


OK, I'll stop it now. For the rest of the day, anyway.

I suppose you have your rationale and... whatever you like that applies to you you are free to practice. The same for me. The same for anyone else. So... nothing changes. Call it what you like and as such so it will apply to you, as will my definitions to me and as anyone's definitions to them. Okay... now back to work.

I don't make the rules up, (just my own), and thanks for that.
I do love that the material rules are unconquerable by demons big and small,
or anyone else.

"The mind is the mechanism that directs these transmigrations, propelling the soul to newer and newer bodies. The Gita explains, "Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his body, .. that state he will attain without fail [in his next life]." Everything we have thought and done during our life makes an impression on the mind, and the sum total of all these impressions influences our final thoughts at death. According to the quality of these thoughts, material nature awards us a suitable body. Therefore, the type of body that we have now is the expression of our consciousness at the time of our last death.

And that's why they're (behaving, etc.) called "good habits"

Take a breather there Buttons.

Very well said Homer and something I look forward to.

Come to think of it..

"I do love that the material rules are unconquerable by demons big and small,
or anyone else" is total nonsense. Is it not"? Akarma as rendering karma null. Anyone can accomplish this, but not just anyone can accomplish this.

Better pay better attention, eh?

Visible said...

You must be on the wrong site. No one said anything like that.

I myself said that very thing, in the comment above.

Just as I was also referring to myself when I said "Better pay better attention, eh?"

Because you better, Homer..


"Consequently, karma is not eternal"

I still don't discover those other comments that is was in reference to. It's not unlike me to miss stuff but I am mystified as to the 'attributed' phrases.
