Hello Elabr8aspie.

Thanks for replying, however, are you able to share more information which will help to clarify to who your question is directed?

      Happiness is the result of an enlightened mind
     whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.

But then it became apparent it was directed at me.

Question: How does one operate on a half light bulb?

Hello all.

How shall we consider those representations which are constructed as beliefs?--beliefs which we may not feel able to share?

Shall we consider them falsehoods contradicting what we ourselves consider to be true?

Or with larger hearts might we come to see beliefs as being born in the timeless cradle of attempts to explain and understand our unknown?

And if we are able and prepared to understand in such a manner, do we come close to seeing all as one?

Hello Elabr8Aspie.

I hope that you and all others here are fortunate enough to be able to weather the challenges which we are all facing. We know that many are not so able, have not been so fortunate.

There have been several questions asked in previous posts on this thread. I honestly do not know to which you refer.

If there is a particular question you wish to discuss because it interests you, then perhaps you may wish to start a thread yourself concerned with that question.

Good wishes.

petex

May not have posed the question very well--hope sufficient to understand however. Apologies if not--will try to clarify if necessary.

Interesting question.
Could we say in the broadest possible terms, that God is "unethical" because the entire Cosmic physical, the Creation is a stupendous deception? But was it intentional or unintentional? Does an all-conscious Being do anything unintentionally?

Hello ~J.

As you say. Conundrums abound, all open to question ? The existence of god may be considered a representation-for some a misrepresentation perhaps.
Not arguing either way on that possibility myself- just logical. Have tried to address possibilities re beliefs in #44. Kind of circular really-- for it seems to me that in the acceptance of that possibility with understanding compassion, such acceptance itself may become an expression of unconditional loving of all as one. God as process as I believe, for love is process, non existent without loving.

Probably haven't expressed that at all well. Others have done so much better and with full acceptance of the consequences of so doing.

You're expressing fine...

Nothing wrong with love and compassion which is no doubt superior to any intellectual construct in dealing with said conundrums.

It's a form of dishonesty. It's a more cunning form of intelligence, and more common in highly competitive, business environments. It makes me think of the saying 'the end justifies the means', and then from an egoistic point of view. This kind of thing seems to work better in some places and cultures than in others. I do not consider it ethical.
