Existence is thoughtless.
Thoughts are thoughtless.
Thoughtlessness is...the end of sobriety.
Drunkenness is the beginning of existence.

Quote from: NawnSeckWitter
Hmm.. I'm a Roman Catholic... **does the dance of being relatively mainstream** I guess most know the Catholic dogmas/doctrines/other stuff.


I've got a friend who's a Catholic/wiccan/pagan.

Please don't make the mistake of confusing your church's beliefs with your own. If there are no variances, you haven't thought.

With humble respect,
Seanfish
Don't you know how sweet and wonderful, life can be
I'm askin you baby, to get it on with me
I aint gonna worry, I aint gonna push
So come on, come on, come on, come on baby
Stop beatin round the bush...

Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on

Quote from: SMFabal
Allow me to present a practical demonstartion of the failure of Xeno's aformentioned Paradox:

Step 1: Find a brick wall.
Step 2: Swing your knuckles forcefully towards said brick wall.
Step 3: Feel the pain of the impact.
Step 4: Realize how incredibly stupid that was :mrgreen:


Excellent! Nietzsche would be proud! Philosophy in action.

Edit: I'm so impressed I'm removing the "fuck" I formerly imposed on Mr Green and using him here and now as an award of commendation.

 :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

That's five! Woo!
Don't you know how sweet and wonderful, life can be
I'm askin you baby, to get it on with me

So come on, come on, come on, come on baby

Let's get it on
Let's get it on

My own philosophy... hmm...

1.) I am a being of pure light merely passing through at this time.

2.) I am god.

3.) All is god (so I guess that puts me in the pantheist camp).

4.) The above two combined mean I am not in the position of looking down on anyone or thing. This is why you will find I can be very forthright with my opinions - I don't act on the assumptions that people won't like what I have to say, because I would welcome their views as coming from another divine soul. Unless I don't hehe I reserve the right to be out of contact with my personal godhood and in a snarky mood.

5.) Lots of influences from Buddhism/Taoism. These inform my spirituality cyclically so that I will at various times see them as useless and then see deeper levels and meanings in their teachings. This is ok by me.

6.) Zen as a pragmatic approach to life. I utilise the suspension of thought and belief on many occasions to avoid walking into traps, simple and complex, immediate and metaphorical. I am often amazed at the multiple assumptions on which people base their lives. Answering questions raised elsewhere, I guess I would say I have absolute faith in a reality outside myself and moderate faith in my perception of it (sufficient to keep me alive and well). Where I see a difficulty for myself and others is in the interpretation of it (not that I don't interpret reality through my own lens, having tried living with a permanently expanding mind thanks to mental illness I have to say filters are goooood and losing selfhood to a mass of understanding and compassion is baaaad, when it's out of your control anyhow. Relgious experiences are neato, religious enforced labour is scary, just ask Joan of Arc.) Anyhow, with regards to interpretation it's not that I don't interpret, it's that I consciously acknowledge that I am interpreting. I think Trollax posted elsewhere on semantics, and that is what is going on for me here. I am aware when I and others place semantic constraints to try and contain reality.

7.) All that having been said, I mostly try to live life in the now. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

You know people in the southern hemmisphere must be born with their bain's upside-down... perhaps that's why things make more sense eh?

Why is it that the ramblings of the insane are more coherent than the carefully phrased remarks of educated scholars?

Sense? As Zenji points out, my love of words prevents me from communicating the true zen.

But then can it truly be communicated?

put it simply i am wiccan, the word witch is not what i use because i know LOTs of fruitcakes (and not the nutty kind) that consider themselves witches.. so i avoid the term...


i also help to co-found the nc church of wicca... yep.. here in the south.. in the bible belt.. woo hoo!

i guesse i can sum up my philosophy of life by quoting a famous monkey:
"you are what you gleep"

I stopped introducing myself as a Wiccan when I kept being asked "Is that like Jewish?". I stopped wearing my pentacle ring because people thought I was a Mason. Now I building a small Coven of Discordian Wiccans (just for Fun)

I love Comedy Central, but Comcast only runs it from 6p to 6a here. Then it's VH1  :evil:
