    • The law of Sin? Or the Law of man? (Last post by PatrickB)
    • Anyway I think the 10 commandments are the basic of society at large . But there a big evolution in a little space of time . If you think about amiability , pardon within the laws you have a lot of space to deal . Being listening to the 10 commandments strait up like this it is difficult to perceive today . And having to cope with new reality is hard to many of us . A man education come to mind to known these laws . But not everyone as the same chance at the beginning of there life's . I think it is still good today to work with these 10 commandments but difficult to master these complex laws . Further more it's like holding a candle by too sides . But the 10 laws have many degree to it .

    • Positive Energies/ Negative Energies affect you, T... (Last post by Kamizu)
    • Avoidance is a natural tactic for folks who are sensitive to energies. That's why a lot of us hermit. BUT there are ways to help defend yourself against this. The only way I know is a visualization..meditation ....well let me just explain lol It's called shielding. It helps protect against 'broadcast' events (like in church) or more direct attacks (think verbally aggressive people) The common teaching is to imagine a bubble around you. Make it any kind of color that suits you that day or moment. It's a simple image you can hold in your head through the day or when you need extra support. It hangs around all day with or without your intention if you set it up but it can use some strengthening in more trying times. This shield can ultimately look like anything you want. A bubble, a phalanx, a white picket fence, a rose, or a ring of roses, dancing cats... Whatever floats your boat. The simpler it is, the easier it is to go to. Although the more complex it is, the more concentration it takes when you need it and the easier it is to focus on I think. I go with a bubble like you blow as a child, with the iridescent rainbow colors. When I'm really needing help I get more of a hurricane picture going with me standing peacefully in the center. Although I'm not sure if that's a calming technique or the same as the shielding but it helps haha. I'm sure there are lots of other ways, but that's just the one I was taught and practice occasionally. (I should practice more lol) If you find that you end up having trouble getting rid of the anxious feelings, feeling too keyed up, things like that you may be having a problem getting rid of excess energy and will need grounding. But that's a different lesson lol.
    • Don't crave for more (Last post by Whyte Horse)
    • Quote: Quote: It might work for someone else. I heard of this millionaire who sold everything and went to cambodia to help poor kids. Scott Neeson article Doesn't work for me - married + two kids :-) I have a wife and 2 kids as well. Nowadays I'm something similar to what Adder just said. I started by providing 1% of my food and worked my way up. Now I'm at about 90%. The amount of money it takes to support myself now is maybe a couple hundred dollars a month. I can make that much by substitute teaching a few days a month. At any rate, this just randomly came up on my screen while I was typing this: "If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way." -Alan Watts
    • What are you reading right now? (Last post by Topher)
    • Dawn of the jedi: into the void by John lebbon. I've been trying to read all old republic based star wars books lately. I'll probably get into the legacy of the force series after this one though. So many star wars books I've never heard of... where have I been?
    • a strain of Polio growing in a guys gut... (Last post by Goken)
    • He must have always had the disease that weakened his immune system and just not been diagnosed until later. His body might not have killed the virus given in the vaccine. That's one reason they use the newer Inactive ones now. This is kind of scary to me, but since those that have been vaccinated aren't at risk I'm safe. B)
    • Jedi in Turkey (Last post by Akkarin)
    • Someone asked if there were any Jedi in Turkey, so is anyone here from Turkey?
    • Hell: An ancient myth or, a factual spiritual pris... (Last post by Streen)
    • Quote: Is it anything like the movie? (one of my favorites) Despite Steamboat's response, the book is actually much better than the movie. The plot is similar, but is supposedly a "true" story. It's difficult to say what the book really is, but it is thought-provoking, and not nearly as hollywood as the movie.
    • The Force (Last post by Streen)
    • I wouldn't say you derailed the thread. You just took it to a more relevant aspect. It would seem that "visions" (however you choose to define that word) are not uncommon. In my own case I've been trying very hard to translate them, though they come and go so fast that it's nearly impossible. Cryo, you might find comfort in your visions if you try to focus on one particular image and figure out what it means. You might be getting information and you don't realize it :unsure:
    • climate change (Last post by ZenJo)
    • Many animal and plant species have adapted to the rise of industial humanity by adapting traits to combat human presence and pollution. The example of the Peppered Moth is often given by evolutionary scientists. So I predict that animals and plants will fair better than we might expect in the coming climate change through their ability to adapt. At the same time, of course, many species may not survive the changes. However, I have to wonder about how modern humans will adapt to climate change. I believe that our ancestors, if placed in our current predicament, might fair better than modern humanity. Ancient humans seemed to have deeper connection to the Earth in their culture and way of life. But our modern world seems to have lost quite a bit of that connection. How many times have I seen someone throw McDonald's bags out their car window even though they are only a few miles from their house and a garbage can? Or people who throw their cigarette butts on the ground right beside the cigarette disposal bin? Or companies that STILL find ways to illegally dump chemical waste? If so many of us can't be trusted to prevent pollution and take climate change seriously, how can we be trusted to adapt to the changing world we have created? If climate changes become more severe, crops will not produce as high of yields. Recent studies have showns rises in drought which leads to food and water scarcity. I admit that many politicians worldwide have used the climate change issue to win votes. In doing so, they destroy the credibility of legit scientists who are actually doing something productive. I don't think we are neccesarily facing an "end-of-the-world" scenario, but hopefully it will be an end to laziness and apathy when the effects of climate change become more severe. One thing that has me bothered is all the stories I have been hearing in the news in recent years of tons of fish, whales, and sharks washing up dead on beaches. In each of the stories, I never hear scientists make any conclusive statements as to the cause of death. Is it Fukishima radiation? Underwater volcanoes? Changes in water temperature?
