  1. I'm no longer afraid to die.

    What we "can do" while centered in 3 dimensions is much different from what our souls do with no limitations... we are divisions of Infinity. To answer your question directly, I believe all of us manipulate reality at all times with our thoughts. But if you're asking me to show you my superpowers... I left them in my other pants. Jesus was a highly psychically-advanced individual who created a religion to spread graspable concepts of the truth, which is infinitely beautiful. The concepts of Heaven and Hell truly do exist, as does every other concept - including the absence of concept. Good and evil are concepts emphasized by religion to represent deeper ideas, or that was Jesus' intention. Evil is ignorance of growth. I'm a stranger myself.

    I believe so.

    Read This: I like to think about that page as the story of the man named 'All That Is.' As for creating interest for you, I'd truly love that! But I don't feel comfortable reviewing his ideas and possibly misconstruing them because I didn't elaborate enough... so instead I'll just mention some aspects of the book that really took hold of me: 'Reality is what you make it'- The human mind literally creates the 3-dimensional objective reality that we all live in and agree upon as fact. It works like a machine in that it intakes units of electromagnetic energy from thoughts and intentions and outputs everything in this world, including our own self-images. Also, upon entering into each of our reincarnational instances, we choose who our families will be based upon either what we need to learn or possibly according to relationships we've had with these personalities in previous existences... I could mention more, but there's SO MUCH material. If you go to the facebook page in my 1st post, each picture of the chapters has a sentence that tells you a little about what it covers. Thanks for your responses, and please let me know your thoughts if either of you finish the book. Thank you. Your words are always appreciated, as are the rest of the respondents'. I'm a bicyclist.

    A few months back, I posted a book in the book club section hoping that some of you may have read it and could bounce ideas with me. The name of this book is Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul. The reason I'm bringing it up again is that I've been having thoughts that the philosophy of existence found in this book is more valuable to me than Taoism. ^That was a hard sentence to type. I am relatively familiar with Eastern philosophies, and I accepted Taoism as my own when I was 18. I feel as though Taoism provides an awesome understanding of the Way of 'the world', but it didn't quench a certain mystic thirst that was latent within me... it didn't and couldn't touch on the idea of an existence that follows this one. This is my first time admitting that Taoism wasn't sufficient for the knowledge I sought. My purpose for this post is attempting to relieve myself from some of the estrangement I feel due to the ideas presented in this book. I have never been a man of beliefs, but I can't deny my trust in the material. Much like the Tao Te Ching, as I read, I felt like my thoughts were being put into word-form and arranged beautifully into sentences and paragraphs. There is a section about 66.7% into the book where Seth discusses the concept of God, and it evoked enough emotion to make me cry in Starbucks... tears of happiness though. It is now ingrained in my consciousness that the Answer to the Question is simply the beauty of creation. I would like to recommend this read to anyone and request that you notify me if you do. [email protected] There is a facebook page that has the entire text posted as pictures. Here's the url:!/album.php?aid=117046&id=163181792631 I hope all is well my friends -Seth
  6. Tao 101 - If you could recommend only ONE book ...

    Buddhist: Siddhartha by Herman Hesse Taoist: Tao Te Ching interpreted by Stephen Mitchell Metaphysical: Seth Speaks: The Eternal Validity of the Soul by Jane Roberts & Robert Butts And here's an extra must-read for fun: Bones of the Master: A Secret Journey to Mongolia by George Crane Enjoy
  7. This book has changed my life. I no longer have any questions about death. I have never been attracted to beliefs because I've always recognized the dualistic nature inherent in out 3-dimensional reality... ideas have always seemed like a better route to take. For the first time in my 23 years of life, I believe in an explanation. Please let me know what you think if you read it. Thanks! -Seth
  8. Disturbing conclusion

    Hey Non. I'm not going to tell you that you're wrong, because you're not. I wont even tell you to stop venting to us... that's what we're here for. What I will tell you is that not all women are terrible... same for the rest of society. You won't find contentment if you observe a characteristic in someone or some people and write off the rest of a demographic due to bitter feelings. I'd advise you to stop searching. When you realize there's nothing you can do, then everything will be done for you. Good luck my friend.
  9. Ask him to tell you his life story, then ask him to ask you a question. Why is this person considered enlightened?
  10. Would the TaoBums mind...

    if I started up a TaoBums meetup group in Austin?
  11. Taoist Philosophy

    Very comforting post. What book is this?
  12. 5 The Tao doesn't take sides; it gives birth to both good and evil. The Master doesn't take sides; she welcomes both saints and sinners. The Tao is like a bellows: it is empty yet infinitely capable. The more you use it, the more it produces; the more you talk of it, the less you understand. Hold on to the center.

    Reality is what you make it. If protection is what you seek, then you have options. It seems that you are succumbing to a Karmic reckoning of sorts... if this is the case, then I must show my respect for your confrontation of fear and bidd you good fortune on universal levels. Be safe.
