    Thank you for all your contributions @Earl Grey! For sharing yourself so generously and also offering resources and help. Know that you are deeply appreciated. Despite having to admit that I may have had different views with you on many things, I am grateful that you've shared with me about this forum. I discovered your love for the taoism and writing in your entries. <3 It makes me sad that it's gone (hopefully it is just hidden). There are a lot of gems in your posts. Take care!

    Exoteric, Mesoteric and Esoteric We can talk about the karmic propensities of a people. The wavelengths of frequency, the sounds of their dharma. Karma is generally misunderstood in the West and quite often in the East. On the exoteric level it is nearly equivalent to Sin and Virtuous deed. It is also seen to accumulate as baggage or merit. "Merit" being a Judeo-Christian term at its root. This is the Exoteric understanding - the outside ring - it is contained in Religion as well - also Exoteric. In the Mesoteric - a movement / release from dogma and the termoil of a break in Beliefs - the clinging proclivities of the rehearsed karmic patterns and the intentional suffering of breaking patterns and finding and facing our judgements. The mesoteric is heroic in intention - it is asking the heavens to rain down upon us, within us. Break "us" apart - not in obieyance, not as deserving - but to enter the oneness, the divine essence - an "I" still seeking - seeking a goal - an end game in Godness - to chisel away the dross - a doing. In the Esoteric - karma has ceased - is ceasing - has taken a back seat more or less. The frequencies that still hold us do not hold an "I" and the holding is a passing more than a block. Seeking has ceased. Belief has ceased. Abidance in Divine Natural Essence - Gratitude - is settling.

    "The jiva does not wish to have no form, no sensation, or to be extremely vast and spread out everywhere. We presume that it is death if we become like that. Thus, there is a liking for a particular form." ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

    Hi Ive sort of made my welcome message into a personal blog, so if it is annoying that I keep bumping this post "From East to West" in the welcome page, please feel free to move it to a personal blog group that you have down at the bottom, thanks.

    "I am not a complete idiot, but whether from weakness or laziness have no talent for thinking. I know only how to reflect: I am a mirror ... Logic does not exist for me. I float on the waves of art and life and never really know how to distinguish what belongs to the one or the other or what is common to both. Life unfolds for me like a theatre presenting a sequence of somewhat unreal sentiments; while the things of art are real to me and go straight to my heart."

    how curious... to not be listening and then proclaim nature to be mute.
