    Great questions. More importantly: "Where are we headed as a people, and how will we get there?"

    Hello Queen Goddess,

    To most of these questions no summary answer will suffice. But I will add my $0.02 as part of the answer from which we can draw some insight.

    What is God? An ever evolving concept. Show me a man's god and I will show you the man. I have yet to see a concept of God that rises above the moral, psychological and intellectual stage of the people who worship/create that concept.

    But if you're talking about the big G God an easier question might be what is not God. The answer is: Nothing.

    The meaning of the universse? Tell me and we will both know. This is where we jump to confusions when we look for the one single thing. The universe is not one monolithicc being but is a composite of many things. The purpose of the whole is as incomprehensible to us as my purpose as a person is incomprehensible to the cells of my body. Yet each cell knows it's own purpose and the purpose of otther cells. This becomes fascism when we let those who are on our level, that is other people, tell us we don't need to know what they know,

    Butt when you say "mean" you are asking for a description--a comparison or relationship to other things. The universe/God cannot be compared or related to anything else because there is nothing else so how can it "mean?" It is we who feel the need to mean-- to pinpoint and categorize ourselves in relation to other things in our environment. Having nothing else in its environment the universe does not have to mean. It simply has to be (pure consciousness). Ase.

    What happened to Black people? Some say we are where we are because we are arrogant. I ask why are Blacks the only people in the world who aren't allowed to be arrogant? What could be more arrogant than going to someone else's country and naming it after yourself in total disrregard for its native countrymen?

    Some say it's because we mistreated the albinos that eventually evolved into those classified as white. If someone acts ugly in your home and you escort them to the door they will sy you mistreated them--kicked them out and now they feel justified in burning your house down.

    What happened? We are coming to the end of the piscean age--an age governed by emotions, faith and hope rather than intelligence, knowledge and reason. That is why the psychopaths are in power and their fears pass for legitimate concerns.

    Why do we believe as we do? Because the truth was beat out of us and a cesspool of undigested lies was beat into us. Even though we are now not beaten physically we collectively feel the lash that tore the backs of our ancestors and it teaches us as it taught them not to questtion those who enforce their power.

    I'd still like to hear how much of this the ancient
    ancestors find to be true.

    Da River

    Yes, we can get very far. It heartens me to see people asking questions. Once we start asking questions the truth that is already in us will break through the lies that were put on us.

    Jesus is quoted to have said :It is the spirit that comes to life. The flesh profits nothing.:
    Question: If the flesh profits nothing why do we put our hope in a physical resurrection? If it's the spirit that comes to life why does the church discourage us from seeking spiritual resurrection by presenting Jesus as unique?

    How many of us have the courage to honestly ponnder such questions?

    River, as usual, im so impressed by your power of logic. I find your synopsis of the ideas presented so clear, so true. So many excellent points made, I cant even begin to post them here.

    "It is we who feel the need to mean-- to pinpoint and categorize ourselves in relation to other things in our environment. Having nothing else in its environment the universe does not have to mean. It simply has to be (pure consciousness). Ase."

    As a Taoist, I find that this phrase de-mystifies man's arrogance and demand for the universe to fit his ideations and explanations. I mean, that's just "David Bohm-quantum theory-Bodhidharma" type brilliance. That just sparked off cells from the cortex.


    you really should be working on that book, by now. LOL
