Abortion

Alabamba's recent anti abortion laws in the US are wrong as children die at the countries border trying to escape persecution. Many have been aborted there, hardly pro life. The US Supreme Court's decision Roe versus Wade gave women the right to abortion. That right is a valid interpretation of the constitution. Personally I think [...]

Infinity

Carl Jung said "The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? ... If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change.” As Carl Jung suggested, when humans realise we are part of the infinite we will [...]

Belief

It is a profound event today, the Pope visiting Abu Dhabi, close to the home of Islam. All religions express a fundamental human aspiration, goodness, it's appropriate for them to come together. Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Sufism, Catholicism, Islam, there are so many human religions. Indeed God, Allah and Buddha exist, presently at the very least [...]

Eulogy

Karl Heinz Rudolf Homberger My father Heinz has moved on to the next world but lived in two worlds during his life, Germany and Australia. His own father Richard died a soldier in France, his mother Sofie died in 1991, his sister Ushi in 2006, and his brother Richard died the very same day he [...]

Life

My father will soon pass away which has prompted me to consider life again. He was a good man. Always a very hard worker and a spiritual man but questioned formal religion in his last days and chose Eckankar. I would say a spiritual man but not academic. After a gradual deterioration over the last [...]

Tao

I went to a Tao, Buddhist and Confucianist group recently which aspired to elevate human consciousness. Apparently there have been Tao people in the past that have demonstrated the way for us to escape reincarnation and better understand reality, the Buddha was one. Indeed the order wasn't at all steeped in formal religion but suggested [...]

Spirit

Science is confident that we will soon be able to time travel. I suspect one of the reasons religion is ubiquitous today is because in the future humans do learn to time travel. I'm not disputing that God exists, perhaps he does in the other dimension where time travel exists. Maybe in the past people [...]

Scientology

Watching CNN recently there was a program called ‘believer’ which considered L Ron Hubbard’s scientology. What interests me about the religion is the belief in reincarnation and also that we originate from aliens. That and an activity called ‘auditing’, perhaps as significant to scientology as confession to catholics. For Hubbard the purpose of auditing was [...]

Hobble

My standard morning at the coffee shop near home, the usual seat. Looking where I normally look I see a hobbling woman struggling along all hunched over, I try to imagine the events of her life, the events that have made her the woman that she is today. I believe there was no event in [...]
