    Bringing your own coffee is ok, but we have some special brews that are outa this world....samples on the house.
    Trust those that seek the truth, but doubt those that say they have found it.

      Universal law..............

      Here is a wonderful Maori Poem, that has within it the same universal principles espoused in Theosophy,....about the continuity of life, thru brith, death, rebirth...the ever-flowing unfolding cyclic movement of form and consciousness.

      ~*~*~

      MY LAW

      The sun may be coloured, yet ever the sun
      Will sweep on its course till the Cycle is run.
      And when into chaos the system is hurled
      Again shall the Builder reshape a new world.

      Your path may be clouded, uncertain in your goal:
      Move on – for your orbit is fixed to your soul.
      And though it may lead into darkness of night
      The torch of the Builder shall give it new light.

      You were. You will be! Know this while you are:
      Your spirit has travelled both long and afar.
      It came from the Source, to the Source it returns –
      The Spark which was lighted eternally burns.

      It slept in a jewel. It leapt in a wave.
      It roamed in the forest. It rose from the grave.
      It took on strange garbs for long eons of years
      And now in the soul of yourself It appears.

      From body to body your spirit speeds on
      It seeks a new form when the old one has gone
      And the form that it finds is the fabric you wrought
      On the loom of the Mind from the fibre of Thought.

      As dew is drawn upwards, in rain to descend
      Your thoughts drift away and in Destiny blend.
      You cannot escape them, for petty or great,
      Or evil or noble, they fashion your Fate.

      Somewhere on some planet, sometime and somehow
      You will reflect your thoughts of your Now.
      My Law is unerring, no blood can atone –
      The structure you built you will live in – alone.
      Your lives with your longings will ever keep pace
      And all that you ask for, and all you desire
      Must come at your bidding, as flame out of fire.

      Once list’ to that Voice and all tumult is done –
      Your life is the life of the Infinite One.
      In the hurrying race you are conscious of pause
      With love for the purpose, and love for the Cause.

      You are your own Devil, you are your own God
      You fashioned the paths your footsteps have trod.
      And no one can save you from Error or Sin
      Until you have hark’d to the Spirit within.

        Infinity

        ~*~*~

        For those truth-seekers and philosopher interested in 'infinity', lets "go there" if we may. In October23's thread "Is God Infinite ?" I have these following posts -

        > Yes, God is Infinite (also link to my Infinity Blog, 12 entries on the Agni Yogi book entited 'Infinity',...great mind expanding stuff)

        &

        > Exploring terms

        We share just a tid-bit from Paper 105 on 'Deity and Reality' -
        105:0.1 TO EVEN HIGH ORDERS of universe intelligences infinity is only partially comprehensible, and the finality of reality is only relatively understandable. The human mind, as it seeks to penetrate the eternity-mystery of the origin and destiny of all that is called real, may helpfully approach the problem by conceiving eternity-infinity as an almost limitless ellipse which is produced by one absolute cause, and which functions throughout this universal circle of endless diversification, ever seeking some absolute and infinite potential of destiny.

        105:0.2 When the mortal intellect attempts to grasp the concept of reality totality, such a finite mind is face to face with infinity-reality; reality totality is infinity and therefore can never be fully comprehended by any mind that is subinfinite in concept capacity
        .
        To me, infinity is the most awesome concept to consider, explore and research. It inspires the mind to probe to its very limits, then engages that which alone can fathom or contemplate the infinite, which is that fragment of infinity in man himself....since only the infinite can disclose the infinite.

        3:4.7 Finite appreciation of infinite qualities far transcends the logically limited capacities of the creature because of the fact that mortal man is made in the image of God—there lives within him a fragment of infinity. Therefore man's nearest and dearest approach to God is by and through love, for God is love. And all of such a unique relationship is an actual experience in cosmic sociology, the Creator-creature relationship—the Father-child affection.

              Hmmm … time.

              Time is a concept we use to acknowledge change. Both controlled and uncontrolled change. And change is an inevitable aspect of existence. So I guess the passage of time is also an inevitable aspect of existence, for us.

              Can anything be 'eternal', then? Logically, something could only be eternal if it were unchanging. And nothing that we know of, in existence, is unchanging.

              But then, there is a lot about existence that we do not know, or even know of. So perhaps ...

                you are thinking in terms of matter
                and
                you will never really make sense of it
                matter does not exist as you understand it
                it is an illusion of a non dual nature
                and
                that non dual nature is God
                nothing can exist outside of God

                  You could be right.

                  The material universe that we live in, and are a part of, is very dynamic: always changing. But the 'laws' that are governing all that dynamism, are constant, and unchanging, or the universe would fall into chaos, and cease to be what it is. And so we may consider those laws, 'eternal'.

                  Interesting point!

                          Its a perceptual measure of points, images, appearances, forms, concepts relating in 'sequence', as long as perception of movement, space, distance, dimensions exist. As long as there is motion of substances and forms (at least seemingly so) and a 'mind' existing to perceive such,...the notion of 'time' is present in some way. In a sense, its an 'illusion' (maya) by its nuance of 'appearance', as the mind can scan to a 'past', 'present' and 'future',...but these are just perceptions of consciousness as far as it can know or relate anything in the NOW. All that exists is NOW,...its just telescoped in various ways from beyond this 'point' (where both time and eternity originate)


                          This is a wonderful subject,...my blog post here covers some commentary and resource venues on 'space-time' -

                          Blog portal on space-time (need to renovate and update)

                          Consider this: - At any place or time, you are cognizant of 'here and now'. From this 'point' of awareness, you can adjust your scope of consciousness,...but its all arising/appearing in the present Awareness that You ARE (here assuming that your true Self or Identity is pure awareness). - all else is but an kaleidoscope of various perceptions mirroring themselves as a cascade of images on the screen of consciousness (with all its various distortions or interpretations, ever subject to change). It is the timeless being looking out thru your 'mind' however, that is of a timeless essence, or the timeless itself.

                          Where is 'time' existing for you right now?...but in the 'now'? - there is no time actually in the pure NOWness of each moment of awareness, except but where the 'mind' interjects or assumes it by way of some kind of 'relativity'. But since the story of life/creation goes on (as there is movement)....so does 'time'.

                            Indeed,...behind the ever changing seasons of creation as it continues on its cycles, are unchanging laws that govern such movements.

                              Life is what we do in space,...'time' is just a measuring-stick whereby our movements are 'coordinated' in their various determinations

                              Time is the one universal endowment of all will creatures; it is the "one talent" intrusted to all intelligent beings. You all have time in which to insure your survival; and time is fatally squandered only when it is buried in neglect, when you fail so to utilize it as to make certain the survival of your soul. Failure to improve one's time to the fullest extent possible does not impose fatal penalties; it merely retards the pilgrim of time in his journey of ascent. If survival is gained, all other losses can be retrieved. ~ The Urantia Book, (28:6.9)

                                The intrinsic unity at the heart of all that exists is of a 'non-dual' nature, while all existence and creation arises and has its movements within the context of that all-pervading unity. Hence the appearances we see in the objective world of duality and difference are but 'appearances' (maya), - they are temporal and subject to transformation, while the non-dual essence at the heart of all things remains as the unchanging essential reality behind all forms.

                                For those who might remember, I had a thread on 'Non-duality' once upon a time, and may create another one in 'time' - otherwise, one can get descriptions of what 'non-duality' is by referring to many great teachers of this subject here.

                                Reality is all-inclusive of whatever is definable and undefinable....because it is What IS (this Is-ness includes all space and time).
