    And if one sees an orange-red ball or a green ball with slow-motion "flames" outside the body? What can this mean, if anything?

  4. Seeking personal power - Good or bad?

    ..and as in many ancient cultures we see that Virtue is aligned with Power. The twin pillars of Truth and Beauty, or Virtue and Justice, reflect the lowest denominator upon the earth, awesome as they are. But if we have Power, or Beauty, or Justice, what good does it do us if we don't move with the Way of things, or God? We express ourselves in this world of forms and there are forms beyond this in the other world of forms. But what are we trying to do, paint pretty pictures in a world of pictures or to see the canvas beyond? And perhaps the canvas itself is part of the picture? Power is illusory. The real question is what happens when you die, or even before then, since there is no real difference. This is meant as a reply to the question itself, not specifically with Zerostao, who has asked reasonable questions. I put it here because it addresses a more specific thing.

    May I have access, please?
  6. Seeking personal power - Good or bad?

    Power is simply the ability to do something. You may be born with some powers and acquire others later and perhaps even lose some. What have you lost and what have you gained? How are they important if you don't know how to use them? If you do something good with them is the power itself, then, good? What good is it if you can't help others, and how can you help others if you can't help yourself? So if you discover you have "power," then what should you use it for? Should you use it at all? In any case every major religion will give you the answer without a riddle, but be aware that most don't follow the deepest ideals of their own belief system even when those systems have already given them the answer to this question.
