    Hello Everyone,
    :hi:

    So, I know there are some of you on here, like myself, who do not consider yourself a traditional Christian, or a traditional anything when it comes to Spirituality. I like to say I am Spiritual, but not Religious.

    Let's talk about and share our Non-traditional Spiritual beliefs and views here..

    Jump in..the water is fine.:swings:

    I really look forward to hearing from all of you...

    IMO, all world religions are the same religion. They all seek to control, and when you strip away the more superficial aspects of these religions, you can see this. An example of these aspects are the rules, rituals, and the regulations. You take them away and you'll find that at the esoteric core of all these religions is the eternal idea that a person's ultimate and real identity is god.

    But before I go, I'd like to clarify my use of the word god. I am using the word "god" as a general term to represent the ultimate, the source of all all being and the bases of all existence. Not the god in the bible.

    Peace!

    Yes, I fully agree. ;)

    I will elaborate more tomorrow, I think I am going to bed early tonight.

    I love this quote by Deepak Chopra, it explains it all so well..:

    "Religion is belief in someone else’s experience. Spirituality is having your own experience."

    We stopped in Frisco and there is too many tourist for me, and prices went up do to the summer months. (we came here this past FEB)

    FYI...if you plan on going to LA...book your room early, cuz trying to find one on the fly is hell. You got Hollywood, Six Flags, Magic Mt, Disney Land's crowd to deal with when it comes to finding a room you don't have to pay am arm and a leg for, or drive miles away from where you want to go.

    Peace!

    I can believe you about those rooms. If you don't book them, especially this time of year it must be a mad house down there..
