Trying to manage on my own, without spiritual support or counseling. I'm okay, but now looking back to my spiritual roots. Feeling the need for this, but also wavering.

Seeker, I hear you; we can be thrown, 'rejected,' and just from my own perception, I know how that feels. But isn't it a relief that no matter how we waver, the truth is always there? A sturdy riverbed...a quiet, peaceful place.. for me, even when I don't feel that riverbed beneath me because the positive emotions have flown the coop, I know (head knowledge, but I know) that if I just take a step forward, I'll feel that riverbed beneath me, holding me up. Hang in ... from Juleeo

Seeker, I just replied to your post a few minutes ago; now I want to ask, is "your artrox" your art? If so, your artrox rocks! It's beautiful. It looks rather like a kind of sculpture, but -- is it a painting? How large is it in reality? Do you do this (if it is yours) for a living, or as a hobby? At any rate, thank you much for sharing it; it's gorgeous. Juleeo

Can you do a separate prayer request area. It's overtaking spiritual discussions.

Default Re: Welcome!

I'm new here and I'm very pleased to find this particular forum. I may not be able to attend the spirituality chat today owing to previous commitments, but I would enjoy an opportunity to discuss this subject at a future chat.

For many years now I have been fascinated with the subject of human consciousness and its relationship to the soul, or spirit. Particularly what philosopher David Chalmers calls The Hard Problem of consciousness, which is why it should have evolved in human beings in the first place. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason why we have a particular experience, for example, of the blueness of the color blue. We would do just as well to learn that seeing something of that light wavelength was called "blue," and not experience any feeling of "blueness" about it.

This is very difficult to explain, and thus why I'd love to discuss it!

Namaste,
Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth sorry you did not get any prompt replies. If you are still interested in discussing matters of consciousness, let me know with a Personal Message if possible.
