Hello fellow explorers and researchers,

Welcome to my blog,

This venue will be for the free open exploration of religious and philosophical subjects, some of which I write just for the blog (like a timely journal), or transfer from my other writings, or special posts within discussion threads on the forum that I want to archive for later reference,...so using the blog here is a creative-expression mostly, for sharing commentary on a variety of subjects. My style is an eclectic, universal and synergestic approach to theology and philosophy, so enjoy that as you can :) - Also, I'm open to comments and some dialogue here, sharing of resource links, etc. but prefer taking on a more extensive dialogue in the respective threads themselves, if these are 'linked' here so one can follow the total discussion for a greater contextual over-view. There are many dimensions to consider and EXPLORE. So put on your thinking caps, open your consciousness, position your spirits to dive in, re-search, expand, co-create and engage
.

In the explorative universal approach to wisdom, I use only as a general guide-reference to spark one's research, the traditional Blavatskian school of Theosophy, but this is only a primer to universal truth studies and occult science, for my own approach is not limited to only this school. I only use it as a general philosophical impetus to explore universal themes of both religion and science, synthesizing them into a more cosmic and individual religious pursual and practice.

After all, God has to be confined to the rules of humanity!

    We can't make assumptions like this without any Biblical reference to it whatsoever! It is Idolatry plain and simple. Before long we will be praying to the

    The personification of the Memra or "the Word" originally comes from the Targums, (see Jewish Encyclopedia, Memra, for a primer), and the personification of the Logos is no doubt an expansion of that understanding. I do believe it all derives from Psalm 40, which is a "new song" about an old scroll which is about to be retired, (its "iniquities" are not iniquities but tatters, rips, and tears; in other words, as one of the meanings in the

    Hello all,

    Its been awhile since we've had some Gnostic threads going here, our last significant one was 'Gnostic Cosmology', where we went thru some key gnostic texts with commentary. Also, my social group, 'Esoteric School of Gnostic Wisdom' has not been active for some time. So,...just blowing fresh wind on some of the embers, to ignite some inner illuminations

    Well, this is obviously a trintarian assumption, doctrinal interpretation and formulation read back into the texts and further crystallized in the making of creeds around the 3-5th centuries....heightened mostly during the Arian Controversy. The Bible can be made to say many things,....since translations and interpretations vary,

    We've already shared plenty of scriptures that support freedom of choice plus videos from Rabbis here that may teach you a thing or two about the Jewish view as well. I've also shared some wonderful insights from the Urantia Book as well here,....besides these two sources and other religious
