vertical line I don't find that a bit unusual. The goddess on the other hand sounds like a poor meditation. Bad Zen. Anywho, it's a nice day and my psyche is alive...the internet is dead. Bye.

vertical line I find the idea of god one of most profound and complicated creations of human mind. And one of the most popular object of attachment either.

vertical line I believe in what I see and feel and taste and touch  and generally sense.
Unfortunately, I have no sense of the Goddess as you have described.
So, for me I have emptiness to look forward to ... a sense of peaceful easy feeling that won't let me down ...
Cause I'm already standing on the ground .... damn song won't go away ... haha

We are all as individual and as unique as sunbeams, coming from our one shared core of existence, metaphorically the Sun, in this example, or The One original Self, otherwise.

We all have our own brightness, our own direction, outward from the Sun, and our own destiny or fate.  The Sun is round, so no two sunbeams eminating outward from this sphere will have the same path, or even be parallel.  The further they are from the Sun, the further apart they will be.

The reverse logic is that the closer they are to the Sun the closer they will be to each other, and inside the Sun itself, the light is all just one light.

Shayne, you say you have known of and rejected a Goddess who said her name is Eve.  Many have known of a Goddess who has come to them in meditation, by other names as well.  The Goddess who came to you was, essentially, You.  You rejected yourself, an inner part of yourself that was trying to reach you.  Youre like a sunbeam trying to break away from the Sun, to go your own way, but even if a sunbeam could do that it would cease to be a sunbeam.  It would just be a ray of light, which would dissipate until it virtually ceased to exist.

I too have such a Goddess, whom I know as the Spirit.  But I have not rejected her, I have accepted her.  Just tonight, in meditation before work, she said, *I am you, and you are me, and we are It together, forever.*  And I said, *I accept*.  What more could I ever want or need than to be complete within myself ?  She has given me my own place in the Void, to be with her for an eternity, and I accept it wholly.  There is nothing else that I want.  Yes I understand that she and I are One.  I think thats great.

Your are duality, personified, exemplified.

And you tell me to wake up ?  And you call me little one, boy ?

You have no respect for your elders, probably because you have not self-respect.

All respect comes out of self-respect.  Those you do not respect themselves cannot respect anyone else.

Not assuming.  You have said here you believe you are Maitreya, the next Buddha, and you are going to change everything.

I have said I believe you are delusional, but stranger things have happened, including Jesus going from a common laborer to Mesiah in one jump.

Why do you think the powers that be, both in the church and the state, had it in for him ?  They werent about to let some common laborer strip them of their power, now were they?  So they rigged it so he would hang, or get crucified as the case applied. 

So if it turns out you really are Maitreya, which is about a trillion to one shot, at best, the more people who follow you and believe in you, the more likely you are to be executed or assassinated. 

The powers that be, whom you have also said you believe know about you, and are watching you, probably are not because there are so many people who are as delusional as you are and believe that they are the next Buddha, or the next Christ, or whatever. 

Thats probably why there are so many, so that when the real one comes along he or she can slip through the cracks unnoticed.  Youre just a dummy, Shayne, a decoy to keep the powers that be from being forewarned and forearmed against the real Maitreya, whoever that may be.  I just hope its someone with half a brain who can handle the job.
