Ett av Alan Watts viktigaste och bästa program någonsin. Han pratar om frimurarna, vad de står för, om det undermedvetna, om exosterisk kontra esoterisk kunskap, hur lätt vi manipuleras, varför djävulen, pengar och äktenskapet uppfanns m.m.

Imponerande hur mycket kunskap som kan klämmas in på en timme. En finfin låt i slutet också.

Han är lite gnällig, säger en hel del bra, som vanligt, men som alla har han sina begränsningar.

Jag vet inte riktig vad han sa om äktenskapet, jag lyssnde inte riktigt. Jag utgår från att han är ute och cyklar, har för begränsad kunskap, förståelse, och är inte så andligt rotad.

I andre epoker och cykler innan Devolutionen som vi nu fejsar gått så långt - så var kulturer på jorden mycket närmare sin motsvarighet på en högre nivå, som en reflektion av dem, vad gäller tex klädstilar, ceremonier och annat - och ledare visste om, och var mycket närmare "himlen", nivåer innan denna nivån som skapats, Samsara - de följde därför sådant som var enligt himmelsk ordning, och bestämde enligt det,och guidade folket på samma sätt. Äktenskap var arrangerade - för det är redan "arrangerat", bestämt på en högre nivå - på denna nivån så är det bara en högre ordning som manifesteras ned - nu vill"människor" gå sin egen väg...

"As for those who long for the Tao, how can they return their true selves? The answer Lao Zi gave was "human beings follow the Earth. The Earth follows the Heavens. The Heavens follow the Tao. The Tao follows nature."

"Lao Zi told us, "Everything comes from something. Something comes from nothingness." "One gives birth to two. Two gives birth to three. Three gives birth to everything." The evolvement of the entire universe follows the Tao. Tao is the origin of the creation and development of everything in the universe.

Since Tao has created all living beings in the universe, isn't Tao the highest rule of nature and human society? Isn't it the highest law of restricting people's morality and behavior? If people follow the requirements of the Tao, aren't they cultivating the Tao? Aren't they returning to their true selves?"


Jag vet inte om det fanns något som var viktigare, och som man sågs mer allvarligt på - än det med äktenskap.

Jag har några länkar om äktenskapet här, under texterna - länkarna kanske inte är så relevanta, kanske det ändå kan intressera några att läsa om reinkarnation - jag sökte på "äktenskap" och fick upp dom, men det är nog så att det handlar om reinkarnationn, mer:

Yao Xiong, an army official in the Song Dynasty, once made an agreement with the chief of a mountain fort to marry his daughter to the chief's son. But soon afterwards the chief passed away suddenly. His wife and son became destitute and people no longer knew their whereabouts.

Years later, Yao Xiong became a high-ranking general guarding the border. Once, on his way to the capital to report to the emperor, he saw an old lady washing clothes next to the road. He noticed how elegant she appeared, and went over to chat with her. The old lady told him, "My husband guarded a fort near the border when he was alive. He had made an agreement with a general with the surname of Yao to marry my son to his daughter. But after my husband passed away, we were unable to live there and forced to wander about in destitute. We now live here selling bread for a living."

Yao Xiong asked her: "Do you still remember what General Yao looks like?" The lady said, "We have been wandering about in destitution and thus can no longer remember how he looks." Yao Xiong said, "I am Yao Xiong. Since we made the agreement, I have never thought of marrying my daughter to someone else. My daughter has also been longing for her future husband day and night. How can we annul the marriage agreement just because the groom's father passed away?" The old woman cried for a long time without being able to say anything. Yao Xiong told the old woman's son to change into new clothes. They went to the border where Yao's family lived and held the marriage ceremony between General Yao's daughter and the poor boy.

Our forefathers believed that "the destiny that brings together lovers who live far apart is connected by a single thread." Today's people treat marriage far less seriously. Those who want to get divorced simply say, "Our feelings towards each other are no longer there." Stories like that of General Yao's daughter have become legends.

(From Words and Deeds of Divination and Retrospection)

Having your hand in marriage, I must be predestined to be with you.


Each person goes through repeated cycles of birth, misery and death caused by karma. Marriage in each life is also predestined. With that in mind, one is likely to develop a renewed understanding of the expression, "till death do us part." Since each married couple must overcome the challenges of life, death and geographic distance to reunite, how can we not cherish each predestined relationship in marriage?

Of course, not all marriages are perfectly harmonious, but this is actually an opportunity for a couple to eliminate the karma they have acquired from mistreating each another in a previous life and to become more altruistic and loving towards each other. This may be another reason why two people join hands in marriage.

In Dr. Gina Cerminara's book, Many Mansions: The Edgar Cayce Story on Reincarnation (1950) [1], she compiled and analyzed many readings of previous lives performed by Edgar Cayce (1877 – 1945) [2], a famous American with supernormal capabilities. There is a story about a married woman in the book.

When the woman married her husband, she was twenty-three years old and quite beautiful. By the time she asked Mr. Cayce to read her past life, she was forty-one years old and she was still very beautiful and charming. Though her husband was a very successful businessman, during their eighteen years of marriage he was sexually impotent. To some people, it might not be a significant problem. But to others, it would be the tragedy of a lifetime. In today's society, sexual impotence can be a valid reason to file for a divorce, but this woman did not have the heart to divorce her husband. She truly loved her husband and did not have the heart to hurt him.

During the first few years of marriage, she succumbed to her desires and had an affair, but she gradually learned to overcome her sexual desire via religious studies and meditation. The best years of her life went by like this until one day her old beau returned to her life. This man had been in love with her since adolescence, but when he was financially able to have a family she was already married. When they met again, they could hardly control their feelings toward each other and started a new relationship. Finally, she decided to end the relationship. She did not have the heart to leave her husband because he was a good man. She did not have the heart to hurt her old beau's wife either. She did not wish to hurt anybody.

Edgar Cayce's reading of her previous life showed that she and her husband were a married French couple in a previous life. Inflamed by the religious fanaticism at that time, her husband joined the Crusade to win back the Holy Land from the Muslims. Before his departure, he made her wear a chastity belt to prevent her from having an affair during his absence. She became extremely angry towards him and lived the rest of her life in misery. She even swore that one day she would have her revenge.

Hence, they met again in this life and were married. Her husband's sexual impotence was apparently the result of karma that he brought upon himself. However, why did she also have to suffer?

The most probable reason was that she was filled with hatred and a strong desire for revenge six centuries ago. In this life, she was given a beautiful appearance that allowed her to have extramarital affairs and to make her husband feel jealous and humiliated until they would divorce. Yet, she chose a different path than the one she had planned. She chose forgiveness instead of revenge. She elevated her spirit to a higher level, and did not want to harm anyone. To be loyal to her husband, she sacrificed her own sexual desire, beauty, and youth.

Everyday people tend to believe that they only live one life and become attached to a lot of things in this life. They are especially unwilling to purge their sentimentality. The truth is that romantic love is an element in the human world. When a person's soul departs from this world, he or she will be free from all sentiment. When a person dies, whether or not he has learned to care for and love others in this secular world becomes most critical in determining his fate in a subsquent life. Reincarnation is a theory that has been documented repeatedly by many western studies and books on samsara.

Confucius said, "Do not do unto to others what you do not want done to yourself.

"Natural" Is Now Unnatural

By Bai Zhi

1. Human language is devoid of its original meanings

In our daily lives, many common words and phrases have negative effects on our thinking because we just use them mechanically; they have become clichés. The degeneration of human thought, disseminated through language and words, has become a reality. From heart-to-heart communication that makes words redundant to wordless silence, from poems to old-style writing, and then to vernacular speech in which it takes more and more words to express the same meaning. At the same time, communication becomes plainer and more vapid, and understanding becomes harder to come by. Misunderstandings are more common, and so, of course, there is more need for clarification.

I don't want to waste time talking about blatant invectives here. Shockingly, some neutral words have been assigned incorrect connotations during their usage. Nowadays, it is hard to make yourself understood with words. What is the right way of speech that will accurately convey the message without confusing the listener? Many times in "communication" you feel the speaker is careless but the listener is all ears. This is because the languages have diverged from their original meanings. Language users, driven by their corrupt thoughts, often change the implications of words at will, and this unfortunate trend continues. This has been a long historical process. Today, languages are inundated with hi-tech lighting and sound, and word games have helped human thought collapse.

2. "Natural": a word that has been subverted

The word "natural" serves as a good example to illustrate this. In traditional Chinese writings, "natural" implies "true self", or "true nature" untainted by derived properties, and thus has some "sparkling" characteristics.

Later on, it was mixed up with the western word "nature". Thus, it lost its original meaning that reflects the "innate" innocence of human beings.

For instance, if naturalists are atheists, then what does naturalism mean? How can naturalism imply the denial of God's existence? Look at this phrase, "To fight against nature; to struggle against the tide." The "nature" in this context seems to be contradictory to the inner world of human beings. In Chinese culture, the word "nature" contains, as its most basic concept, the idea of "man and heaven in harmony", but this implication was totally subverted under the attack of contemporary western thought. Alas, nature and human beings are now totally separated from each other. "Nature", as it now stands, refers to all—organic or inorganic—that exist outside of self. It thus highlights the existence of "self." Consequently, man can love "nature", conquer "nature", and rearrange "nature."
Naturalists used the term "naturalism" to counter the misinterpretations of religious teachings made by degenerate churches. However, once they started criticizing the Creation and other ideas in Christianity, they unwittingly undermined the original meaning in "natural" of nature having been created by gods. "Natural" thus came to represent looseness, a license for doing whatever one desired. That made human beings believe that human desire and will were their masters, and the pursuit of personal ideas, desires, and will became something "natural."

3. Abuse of "natural"

In the modern Chinese language, "natural" has taken on very vague meanings and has been used to represent the essence of modern science. The marriage of "natural" and "science" creates another common term, "natural science." In this case, "science" is employed to interfere with the original meaning in "natural" that gods create everything in this world. When I was very young, the primary schools' "nature" class was about the structure of science. For example, biology was fit into the framework of the theory of evolution, promoting the idea that the man has evolved from the ape. Is this "natural"?

Indeed, "natural" is no longer natural to modern people. The word actually refers to passivity in attitude. Read the following passage, "Many people will naturally resort to medication when the symptoms get more serious. The organs within the human body thus respond to the drug while naturally resisting the virus. However, the medical doctors' prescriptions and drugs are only to make the patients feel comfortable. In fact, if you leave the cold alone and put up with it for a week or so, you will naturally recover."

All the three "naturals" above are actually unnatural, since they all imply a touch of irresponsible "indulgence." Think it over and you will be curious: why should we naturally use drugs? Isn't this contradictory with "put up with it for a week or so, you will naturally recover"?

"Natural" in this setting actually reflects a superstition of modern science, an illusion that following scientific conclusions is a natural state. Implicit in this is unconditional acceptance of the causal relationships manifest in the narrow statistical interpretation of scientific experimentation. This "natural" state results from artificial changes, and is far away from true reality.

4. Psychological effects of the use of "natural"

After "natural" became a colloquial term, it has come to represent a certain attitude towards life. "Follow the course of life" is interpreted as passive waiting, as if waiting to see matters shape up into something desirable. It encompasses laziness, irresponsibility, even craftiness. "Natural" thus descended from the realm of "human and heaven in harmony" to that of "interaction between man and nature", and then to an excuse that covers up human resistance to change. This reflects the subtle relationship between human mentality and language, with each of them losing its original referential landmarks at the same time.

In a time when ads are everywhere, "natural" is used to sell goods. For instance, in "Natural is beautiful", "Makes your eyes naturally large", "Natural water molecules", and the like, "natural" has been taken advantage of to package human products. This has made it dirty and cheap! As a result, whenever people mention "embracing nature, commanding the universe", they no longer can appreciate the internal joys and genuine excitement our ancestors would have had. The reason: our thoughts are adulterated by too many unnatural concepts.

Then, what on earth is "natural"? We can never understand it. It has been abused by common people who have damaged its meanings. It has been burdened by layer upon layer of bad matter, which functions in a negative way in our mind. Let's clear it away.

Jag behöver inget tips om att länka, jag länkade i slutet till fyra artiklar.
Du går efter ytan - kommenterar inte det som står - det kanske är det som är din tröskel, jobbigt "budskap" ?

Texterna som jag klistrade in är en del av mitt inlägg, några är längre om man går till originalen, är utdrag ur artiklar som jag villa ha med här - så här är det mindre att läsa. Det är ingen som tvingar någon att läsa, eller hur - det går enkelt att bara scrolla förbi, kanske kolla några ord och se om man vill läsa - annars scrollar man bara förbi helt, eller Återgår, det är inget som är jobbigt. Direkt upplagt, smooth sailing.
