"How miserable you look, sir!" Cried the prince. "It is poverty, freak not misery replied Chuang tzu. "A man who has tao cannot be miserable. Ragged clothes and old boots make poverty, not misery.". Chuang tzu - (taoism) a distrust of Intellect Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment; Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment intuition. Rumi - (Sufism a notably mystical, minority, tradition associable with both Sunni and Shia islam) Spiritual Insights are possible! The intelligence of the mean man does not rise beyond bribes and letters of recommendation. His mind is beclouded with trivialities. Yet he would penetrate the mystery of tao and of creation, and rise to participation in the one. The result is that he is confounded by time and space; and that trammelled by objective existences, that he fails apprehension of that age before anything was. But the perfect man, - he carries his mind back to the period before the beginning.
Our world seems to be becoming more and more "globalised" presenting us with new challenges of book co-existence between cultural communities and of toleration between faith communities! Extensive studies have been conducted into comparative spirituality by ourselves at age-of-the-sage and were actually undertaken before 2000. And hence prior to that difficult situation, often overstated as being an actual "Clash of Cultures that has (however that situation should be depicted) been all too evident in recent years. As such these studies will hopefully qualify to be considered as having adopted a somewhat open and unprejudiced consideration of the spiritual teachings of such major World Religions as Christianity, islam, hinduism, buddhism, sikhism, taoism and Judaism. In the following brief overview one or two"s are presented from Buddhist, hindu, islamic, jewish, sikh and taoist sources respectively. Such inclusivity as this is quite clearly necessary in any genuine attempt to present a wide-ranging and profound overview of non-Christian spiritual insights. Those inclined to look further into comparative spirituality can find a link to more detailed studies at the end of this initial presentation. A disdain for Materialism Chuang tzu put on cotton clothes with patches in them, and arranging his girdle and tying on his shoes, (i.e. To keep them from falling off went to see the prince of wei.
Whoever does not love does not know God, because god is love. John, purity of heart do everything without grumbling or arguing, gps so that you may become blameless and pure, "children of God without fault in a real warped and crooked generation." Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly. Humility nor are you to be called 'teacher for you have one teacher, the Christ. The greatest among you will be your servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

Jesus, a distrust of Intellect so i tell you this, and insist on it in the lord, that you must no longer live as the gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. Paul, spiritual Insights are possible! What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. Paul, charity dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.

Further down this page Charles Darwin's explanation of the Origin of Species is "acceptingly" considered and mention is made of Alfred Russel Wallace as an independent formulator of the Theory of evolution. We are very hopeful that the content of this page will be seen as tending to young better establish the claims of Spirituality to a fully respected validity without any attempt to dismiss the contributions of Science. Religion was almost universally practiced by people living in "the west" prior to the impact of such things as Charles Darwin proposing a theory of evolution of Species. There can be no doubt that "Modernity in the westernised world, holds Rationality and Science in very high esteem whilst the validity, or importance, of any attempts at Spiritual Insight are widely dismissed and disregarded. It is surely of the utmost relevance to the faith versus reason Debate that an acceptance that "Valuable Spiritual Insights are possible" and an associated "Distrust of reason" (in matters related to Spirituality!) are clearly evident amongst the more profound insights shared by all. "Scientific and Rational" Western Modernity needs to sit up and take notice that such ancient and widespread World Religions. Christianity, islam, hinduism, buddhism, sikhism, taoism and, judaism are all in agreement that "Human Intellect is to be in some ways distrusted" and that "Spiritual Insight is possible, desirable and profoundly important.".

Images of roosevelt Uncertain. Broadcast 14 november 2006. Clouds of alien life forms are sweeping through outer space and infecting planets with life it may not be as far-fetched as it sounds. The idea that life on Earth came from another planet has been around as a modern scientific theory since the 1960s when it was proposed by Fred hoyle and Chandra wickramasinghe. At the time they were ridiculed for their idea known as panspermia.
But now, with growing evidence, its back in vogue and even being studied by nasa. We meet the scientists on a mission to get to the bottom of the beginnings of life on Earth from the team in Texas who are lovingly building a robotic submarine called depthx to explore a moon of Jupiter, to southern India where they are. According to local scientist Godfrey louis, the rain contains biological cells unlike any he had seen before with no dna and the ability to replicate at 300C. Louis has come to the conclusion that the cells are extra-terrestrial in origin. Could all this really be proof that we are the aliens? From The web, join The conversation.

I ask that the congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by japan on Sunday, december 7th, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the japanese empire. Book/CDs by michael. Eidenmuller, published by McGraw-Hill (2008) 1, narrowly considered, it is true that the " formal reply " contained no formal declaration of war, or, definitively expressed statements of actionable immanent hostility. However, within a wider geopolitical context, and from the apparent perspective of key actors within the japanese government, the perceived threat posed by the. To japan's regional interests and ambitions had been building for some time and to such an extent that the launching of Japan's Pacific campaign had reached the status of fait accompli well before its ambassador's had delivered their final reply.

With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.

F ranklin, d elano, r oosevelt, pearl Harbor Address to the nation delivered 8 December 1941, washington,. Video purchase click for pdf, authenticity certified: Text version below transcribed directly from audio. Speaker, members of the senate, and of the house of Representatives: Yesterday, december 7th, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the. Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack. 1, it will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack summary was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.
