Question by Squashed Orange: Was Jesus a mystic? He willed life into people just like a mystic? He told religious mysteries (parables)?

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mystic

mystic
–adjective
1. involving or characterized by esoteric, otherworldly, or symbolic practices or content, as certain religious ceremonies and art; spiritually significant; ethereal.
2. of the nature of or pertaining to mysteries known only to the initiated: mystic rites.
3. of occult character, power, or significance: a mystic formula.
4. of obscure or mysterious character or significance.
5. of or pertaining to mystics or mysticism.
–noun
6. a person who claims to attain, or believes in the possibility of attaining, insight into mysteries transcending ordinary human knowledge, as by direct communication with the divine or immediate intuition in a state of spiritual ecstasy.
7. a person initiated into religious mysteries.

Doesn’t that describe Jesus?

Well, it seems that the Bible miracles aren’t happening, but the transfer of energy among all life is happening. When someone put his hands around my heels once, my heels started to get very warm as if they were on fire. This was about 20 days after Yoga already took the soreness from my legs. The man (healer?) told me my leg just grew out at the same time. That took place at some church service starring Dan Mohler. I didn’t see it grow out, but I also didn’t have a good angle of viewing. What do you think that miracle was? An act of God, of course. But how did it happen is the question. Perhaps it happened the same way that Yoga transfers energy. So is Reiki and miraculous healing the same? Why do I hear all these rumors of different spirits and that even the evil ones can heal? Then is it better to never want to heal people because of the risk that we might just heal by using an evil spirit disguised as an angel of Light? Were the 11 apostles who healed mystics then? Then Paul showed up after the ascension — was he a mystic? A mystic “wills” life back into people and “wills” others to be healed.

Question by Black Christian Scientologist: How could the Hindu Ancients know what Modern Science has just recently determined without instruments?
The Ancient Hindu prophets allegedly wrote that the Earth rests on the backs of four elephants, which stand on the back of a giant turtle, which itself stands on nothing but mud.

These were people who would have to explain what they had determined about the universe in a form that the people of their time would understand.

The elephant was their strongest beast of burden. Therefore they represented some mighty supporting force. Elephants are sentient; that they would consent to stand on a turtle’s back without wandering off implied that something unimaginable (since they are not depicted as being tied up with rope or something) was keeping them in place.

The turtle might be tough enough to support four elephants on its shell and four legs.
It stands in mud which consists of particles fine beyond Human ken to perceive.
The turtle stands on four legs.

Modern Nuclear Physics has said that all existence rests on or consists of Four Entities, which are the Strong Force, the Weak Force. Electromagnetism, and Gravity. These themselves consist of something too fine to be determined by current theory and technology.

The Four Legs of the Four Elephants makes sixteen legs in all.

The Three Generations of Matter- what everything is made up of- consists of:

SIX types of Quarks, EIGHT types of Leptons, and FOUR types of Bosons.

They aren’t evenly distributed among the Four Beasts, but maybe that was as close as the Ancients could get. (Always presuming, of course, that our infallible Modern science can NEVER be wrong!)

Was there a better way for the Ancient Prophets to have explained this?
Don Juan Matus said when Carlos Castaneda showed him the Tibetan Book of the Dead, that their Lamas must have decided that it didn’t matter what they said, so they wrote up a load of nonsense that wasn’t true, because everyone has to *see* for themselves.

One might ask what use Ancients might have of Nuclear Physics.

. SCIENTOLOGY AXIOMS 1-12. L. Ron Hubbard

Life is basically a Static.
Definition: a Life Static has no mass, no motion,
no wavelength, no location in space or in time.
It has the ability to postulate and to perceive.
2. The Static is capable of Considerations, Postulates, and Opinions.
3. Space, Energy, Objects. Form and Time are the result of Considerations
made and/or agreed upon or not by the Static,
and are perceived solely because the Static considers that it can perceive them.
4. Space is a Viewpoint of Dimension.
5. Energy consists of postulated particles in Space.
6. Objects consist of grouped particles and solids.
7. Time is basically a postulate that Space and particles will persist.
8. The apparency of Time is the change of position of particles in space.
9. Change is the primary manifestation of Time.
10. The Highest Purpose in this Universe is the Creation of an Effect.

11. THE CONSIDERATIONS RESULTING IN
CONDITIONS OF EXISTENCE ARE FOUR-FOLD.

(a) AS-IS-NESS is the condition of immediate creation without persistence,
and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation
and the moment of destruction, and is different from other considerations
in that it does not contain survival.
(b) ALTER-IS-NESS is the consideration which introduces change
and therefore time and persistence, into an AS-IS-NESS
to obtain persistency.
(c) IS-NESS is an apparency of existence brought about
by the continuous alteration of an AS-IS-NESS.
This is called, when agreed upon, Reality.
(d) NOT-IS-NESS is the effort to handle IS-NESS
by reducing its condition through the use of force.
It is an apparency and cannot entirely vanquish an IS-NESS.
12. The Primary Condition of any Universe is that
two Spaces, Energies, or Objects must not occupy the same Space.
When this condition is violated (Perfect Duplicate)
the Apparency of any Universe or any part thereof is nulled.

(I had originally thought to leave out this concept that also fits into the Four Fundamental Forces Theory that I tried to the “Turtle.”) Well, if you want to multiply five “Big Macs” to feed 5,000 men (besides women and kids), transform water to wine, and instantly heal illnesses and maimed limbs, you would need to know something on this at least this level- don’t you think?

Answer by JESUS IS GOD
The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with a word him that is weary.
Morning by morning he wakens, he wakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious, I turned not backward.
I gave my back to the smiters,
and my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard;
I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

You are both and more. You are also a spiritual body you have a psychological body you have an energetic body you have mental and emotional body. This is what holistic means it’s everything. This is a ridiculously simple answer but it is so very complex. You are more than a mind and you are more than a body.

Question by : Atheists, do you exist or are you just an illusion?
I keep hearing atheists talk about physics out of nothingness being evidence that God does not exist. However, the Apostle Paul explained to the Athenians the attributes of God by contrast to physical reality. In ancient Athens, they had thousands of statues that they worshiped as gods. There were a few that were dedicated ”To An Unknown God” just in case there was a God they forgot to honor. Well, Paul explained the unknown God to them: that God can not be restricted to any man-made institution, nor anything conceived in the minds of men; physical nor conceptual. God is an un-embodied mind that you can’t know unless you bridge the gap between your human philosophical perspective and God’s theological revelation.

So do atheists think the same way as the Athenians when it comes to their own person? Does the ego not exist, even though human consciousness is macro-centralized into real time? Is the fact that you’re able to conceive of eternity not transcendent beyond physics? Why does your cause-effect reasonability not limit you to your own world?

Question by Jason Owen: What if consciousness and energy were actually just different terms to describe the same thing?
(This was originally intended to be an answer to a question which was removed before I could post)

In that case, the religious and non-religious could both be right. It’s a theory which is growing in popularity that reality is just as beauty; in the eye of the beholder. In the case of religion, there are plenty of valid arguments for and against the possibility or likelihood of a supreme god.

Whether or not the energy (or consciousness) is infinite or not is an interesting question, but ultimately irrelevant, no?

Answer by hindu monk
Good question,u need to a have a deeper enquiry into it

Every morning and night go into silence or deep meditation, for meditation is the only way to discriminate between truth and error.

Paramahansa Yogananda
Some like to believe that there are over hundred techniques of meditation; each lingering at a different level, each manifesting its influence on the consciousness at a different pace.

The world over, many have confused meditation with concentration and relaxation with meditation. Techniques using music, dance, other forms of creative expression, an array of therapies (both physical and mental), have all been synchronised into one basket – Meditation!

But truly speaking, many of these work more at the intellectual level while others are only channels for relaxation and prepare you for the more serious stages of true meditation. From the point of view of the advanced Yogis, meditation really is a scientific technique for communion with God, and is the seventh step (dhyanai) in Patanjali’s eightfold path. To a host of new age and other spiritualists, however, techniques that encourage you to manifest mindfulness and be aware also fall under the gamut of meditation.

Meditation when done scientifically draws back into the central part of our body the spine and the brain the life current distributed throughout the various organs of the body, thereby magnetising these two very central parts (spine and brain) which in the astral body are also home to the seven chakras…ultimately leading the distributed energy back to their original centers of distribution. This really results in one experiencing oneself as Light. It is in this state that one’s physical self, consciously manages to free itself from the chords of its bodily and mental distractions.

Amidst the varying opinions and tastes, not to forget the pressures of modern day living and the multitude of diverse inner personalities cum spiritual interests, it might only seem prudent to encourage individuals to choose that form of meditation which seems appropriate to their own nature, feelings, and the goal they really seek to attain from their spiritual practices. Apropos, there are Hindu techniques, Buddhist techniques, techniques from other religions, and even those that do not belong to any religion in particular. We thus can also seem to have one or more universal forms of meditation.

Just as one moves from kindergarten to school to college to a Bachelor’s level and then onward, perhaps, to a post-graduate platform, so too in the realm of spiritual practices each one of us is drawn to and imbues practices and techniques as may be appropriate to our inner development. This is why some persons indulge in worship of deities, some prefer to seek God through mantra practices, and many others believe in relating with the formless One.

In the initial search one may be initiated into the path through the medium of simple techniques relating to meditation on objects, images, etc., but as one genuinely progresses and ardently calls out to the Divine to reveal Itself, one is definitely guided on to the one right approach as may behove one’s current spiritual personality.

Dear one, whatever be the technique that you practice, seek to do it in wisdom and with an understanding of the science behind your physical and subtle (energy) bodies. The benefits of all activity done with the intention of freeing the soul from bondage are manifold, and anything done with awareness and attention will only nurture deeper and faster success.

In our presentation here, we attempt to give credence to the importance of scientific methods in meditation and yet present some more simple techniques for the benefit of a beginner or one not yet wholly groomed on the path. Meditation is for both the atheist and the theist. It is concerned with awakening the realisation of the Self within, and is therefore beneficial to all and sundry

Question by hanic101: In college can you just major in science?
I know this seems like a stupid question, but i was wondering if in college you could major in just science. Like not have to pick a specific field. I’m wondering because I know i want to do something with science, but i don’t know what. I just wanted to take a bunch of basic science courses like biology, physics, chemistry, engineering, etc. Then decide what i want to do later down the line like in grad school or something. Is this possible?

Best answer:

Answer by PE2008
Some schools do have “General Science degrees or “Physical Sciences” or “Natural Sciences” or similar, but these degrees are not popular because they are “survey” majors that do not equip students well enough for graduate study in any particular science.

Consider “Engineering Science” if you want a broad but also deep study.

Question by LvL60_Warlock: How can one say supernatural activities like levitation,ghosts dont exist just because they disobey physics?
Science is what we made to describe the universe. The universe existed and is existing. Physics is a framework , a mathematical model , of describing how the universe works and has worked. If the universe , as existed , suddenly changes , all our science and laws of physics get crushed. So , how can one say > see question.
