They are very beautiful.

That was my impression of the shadow as well Inibmutes.

And thanks for the response Setken. It cleared that up some.

Mankind has the unfortunate means to destroy the world and everything in it. We kill each other, we kill our brothers and sisters in the animal world. We abuse each other, we abuse ourselves, we abuse the environment around us.

Humanity has a tendency to forget that we are still part of our environment. If you asked people on the street whether they knew where their food came from, where the things they have came from, what chemicals they bathe in, and the like, they will not have an answer. If they are asked to donate to the environmental causes, they won't. If asked to help another person, they will avoid it.

I personally don't own a car, I don't buy gas, I carpool with my family if I go on a road trip, and I get around daily by hoofing it, riding my bike, or riding the local bus. If someone needs ten dollars and I have it in my pocket, I'll hand it to them. If someone needs a bus ride and doesn't have the money for it, I'll pay for their ride. I work in the retail business, and while I don't love many of the products we sell, I try to sell things for their friendliness to the environment overall, and if someone looks like they need it, I'll mark things down for them as much as I can.

The part that really makes me smile is it's not just me. It's not just the people I see every day. It's the people who have been there before, who know what it is like to struggle just to get what they need. It's the people who work their tails off just to be able to help someone else. There is kindness in the world, it's just so watered down by the cruelty of indifference.

It's a weird reference, but I watched an episode of Supernatural once, where a demon said something like, "You all are able to talk to each other, you all have so much better communication, but you have never been farther apart." It's very true. A lot of people seem to have lost all sense of community, all sense of right or wrong. As if the world has gone insane.

It's just an opinion of mine, but I see that starting to change with the new religious groups popping up, and with a greater emphasis on spirituality of all kinds, whether it be Christian, Muslim, or Pagan. It seems as if there is a reaction to the lack of community by searching for deeper spiritual meaning, which seems to bring us back together as a community.

(Sorry I ranted though.  :eek: )

Setken, so then you would consider the bodies and our interaction with them comparable to the Eastern tradition of chakra and Kundalini work?

516
Thanks! It did answer what I was thinking.

517
Out of curiosity, has anyone heard of one of the bodies being separated from the others?

Tee hee. Good to see you here Reis.

519
Ah. It's all good. :)

520
Sorry, the discouragement was from the lack of activity. And the image was really powerful. Also, I find that the more I move forward, the more my beliefs become refined, rather than change.

521
Okay, I was curious about it because I view things a bit differently, and wondered where others, or even the more so the majority of the house stood.

Thank you a lot. Both the descriptions and metaphors helped a lot Laityinepu.

522
It makes me a bit...discouraged actually.

523
Okay, so I understand that the three most commonly recognized bodies in these forms are the ba, the ka, and the khat, and that the ren, sekhem, and ab is discussed but not as much in that term as just in passing. But I'm curious where the other bodies such as the khaibit, khu, and sahu?
