Meditate Like Christ, by Krishna Das

 Ohh Lakshmi, I can only talk for myself.. I am not scared of acknowledging anyone, I  think everyone try their best and that is exactly why I believe everyone should know Jesus, because He and only He is The Best; but  to know Him in the whole and full sense. Knowing Him means to have a relationship with Him, a relationship of love, when you love Him you will submit to Him, no matter how crazy it is or how ridicule, or funny or whatever you sound for others. I don’t have the specific answers for your question… just what I told you, God is not limited to time, so those thousands of years are not really that much… yes it is very simplistic or “watered down” but what Jesus teaches is very simple, to believe in Him to get to the Father that’s all.
By no means I want to ridicule or dismiss or diminish any other religion, much less Hinduism with all that it has and it is. I would love to be an expert on it, but I won’t even say anything about all those fancy words that you mention.  You probably heard and know about Fr. Bede Griffith, I think you will love him.
Hard feelings? never…

 Lakshmi, the historical context of Christianity is that God revealed Himself in Jesus. God, the One God, took human form and came to earth, before that, He prepared the people for it.…  I don’t think God’s love ever changed or ever will. It is just that he chose that specific time in history to fully reveal Himself, besides He is timeless, not bound by time, as we see it. I think Hinduism is fascinating,  it’s not really a religion… it’s acceptance of everything is somewhat admirable but at the same time could be a hindrance.. Jesus wants our total and complete surrender to Him.

 Oh of course Jon, there is room for everyone! God wants us all! But there is no room for contradictions and relativism… There is a difference between the Creator and the creatures, if we say that all are the same, that we “are God” because our empathy and love and whatever noble things we may have or feel, we are diminishing Him and exalting ourselves. We are made by Him and for Him, but because of our falling nature we need a Savior, Jesus, He came and opened the door again for us or better yet He is the door. How can I be so sure? Because that ‘s what Faith Is. To believe, and be sure of it without any proof, or it won’t be faith. Do we really want to believe and spend our energy and life in something that may not be true?

 OH my GOD!! no creature in the universe is God. Only God is God. One God in three different Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We humans are made to be like Him but always fall short, because of sin. He is perfect, we are not. The best thing we can do is to strive for holiness.

 Oh no, no.. we are not "one with God" in the same sense as Jesus is. Jesus Is God. We are made in the image of God. Yes, we each are a child of God and should be intimately connected with Him but that depends directly on our relationship with Him.

 And also, that He is the Son of God may have something to do with how he meditated/prayed. He was intimately connected with the Father... He is one with the Father..

 Jesus Christ Is Love... when we cling to Him we will learn to love like Him and be like Him.

 

Radiating Photons of Goodwill, by Marc Ian Barasch

 We are images of God! we all have the potential to emanate light, goodness, Love... it's just that sometimes we get trapped in the physical, material world that blinds us and doesn't allow us to see and experience the spiritual part which is what we really are, spiritual beings with a temporary humanness..

 

On Good and Evil, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

FaceBook  On Apr 28, 2009 meg wrote:

 I think most of the time we use evil as an excuse... when something bad happens, something that makes somebody suffer or unhappy, we say is evil... maybe is just humanness, mean spirited humanness, humanness without God. Whether people believe in God or not, He exists, and with Him everything is good and perfect, even if we don't see it that way. We can not understand everything... our minds are limited...

We just need to focus on our "being" all the time, be aware of our "here and now" and acknowledge the person next to us as a special human being, just like ourselves...

How true! We're tending to be more and more individualist, when the truth is we need each other even when we don't think so. If we find the beauty in each person and discover the joy in sharing our life will be much easier.
