I just reread "Illusions, tale of a reluctant messiah" by Richard Bach, for the first time since shucking my religion... I used to think it was a great book... now, it's just ... hokie. It was still sort of fun, but full of woo.

I realize that from the otherside of the dogma curtain it seemed progressive, rebellious even; we can all be gods! IT was a step away from the fundie trough though, and got me open to the idea that there are other ways of looking at things, so I guess that's something.

At the time I guess I was more the person in orange... now, I'm definitely the green one! πŸ™‚

@AMGT Yes. I liked it too. Now this one just felt a bit too... Chopra. πŸ™‚ I still liked reading it, just not as much. Kinda like watching "Up in Smoke" years after I quit smoking pot. hahaha

My school report said ''Alice sets his standard very low and never seems to reach them''

After reading so many posts here , I would say people regret setting the bar too low a lot more often than they regret setting it too high .

Spot on, Right on!

Discernment is different to judging.I interpret judging in this context as condemning or writing someone off totally.We have to discern everything but leave judgement to...god or something

That sounds like a good division: we compare things as a survival instinct after all.

Seems like you are comparing Judgement to Sentencing

This keeps getting better the more I read!

Judge and prepare to be judged.

Mmmm food for thought I make a judgement on an action but judging is a slipperly slope and a red herring all rolled up as lame (for me) recourse instead of invovlement in life. Nose bleeds happen in those living in snarky towers of self righteousness. Gullible rubes eh? I'm most interested in what that judgement/perspective means? Duke what are the characteristics that reveal a judgemental person to you?

I set the bar high, but not too many bars. I like trying to have a singular focus, " I MUST get this done, today!"

I saw that on FB earlier today.

If homeopathic medicine works, why we are not inmortal?

That does work but I would not use it to replace a full body scan or an needed operation !!
