  The Buddha once taught the Bhikkhus about the All:

"I will teach you the All. Listen closely. What is the All? It is eye and visible object,
ear and sound, nose and scent, tongue and taste, body and feelings, mind and ideas.

vertical line Posted on May.10.2012 @ 07:05PM EDT by shayne

god is the very foundation of the air we breath to the particles in our desk.

to the nothingness upon which the big bang happened.

he is that too.

god is everything.

god is the very foundation of the air we breath to the particles in our desk.

Who made god the foundation???

to the nothingness upon which the big bang happened.

No-thing-ness is not what you have painted it. Only nothing can come from nothing, not something like a bang of some kind.

he is that too.

He. So this god character is limited to being a he.

god is everything.

Every-thing. So god is a thing. Things start and end. All things do, it is the nature of things. So when did gods start and when will they end.

I think that you sound like a mind limited religionist. Reality is too much for the you that you are. Reality is too much for you. Invent a god, that will solve it all.

God help you.

When you are no longer you. You wont need god.But it is obvious with all of this god talk that you cannot see past you.

See the forest for the trees, apostle.

vertical line Yes. I even have an apple seed that was taken from an apple I'd eaten planted in a small pot in a south windowand it is growing so beautifully. Anything that grows is life giving.

I've finally got my strawberry patch weeded out and am going to have a mammoth harvest again this year. I give away loads of berries once I get done making jam.

I transferred rhubarb plants from an old farm location today that could have been over 100 years old... the roots were like wood. The spirit around the old farm I visit is still so alive and sacred.

I worship nature, literally been outside all day today... bliss.

vertical line After reading this, I still don't know if God exist or not.
If death is the final resting place and it is an eternity of silence and darkness
Nothing ... then God doesn't exist?? I mean how could God be if there is no after life??

Religion is based on the idea that there is something after death.
A promise of something .. a reward for being obedient or worshiping God for  believing and living a decent life

Buddhism seems to ask the person to want to verify everything for ones self.
Not asked to do much .. other than to learn and practice until the truth reveals itself.
There is no asking for faith that there is an after life.

I am just left with more questions.
Keep the faith?? ... keep the practice?? .. keep searching??
