Re: An Introduction to Zen Buddhism

Buddhism seems to have had many fads over the years, I like the underlying messages and spirit of it, much like the message of all religions without their different dogma.
I'll have to read Chieko's story.

Re: Elder Holland Talk on Reconciliation

1. After you've been deeply wronged, the relationship is normally different than in the past. You wouldn't voluntarily jump back into an intense relationship with the person. I couldn't agree more. Took me a long time to get to the point That I realized I could forgive someone or even an institutio...

Re: The Orthodox Jewish Bible (NT)

Interesting. Taking any texts and changing a few words to a familiar language can make an interesting paradigm shift.
I once read the trucker's Bible and the translation for "...and he said unto Peter" was translated to "Yo Pete".

Re: Ward treating us like we're inactive?

You don't want to be seen as a project for the ward to work on, but it seems like they are just taking you under their wing so to speak. I also wouldn't worry about it. It also took a long time to get past the are you new in the ward thing for us, mostly that's because people are sometimes like us, ...

Re: Unlearning What I Have Learned

I'm not yet done forming my beliefs. My faith is still not where I want it to be. I'm still trying to reconcile how to be apart of a church that I believe has Christ's gospel, but live with a culture that I don't feel is always Christlike. I'm hoping here I can get other people's opinions as well a...

An Introduction to Zen Buddhism

By D. T. Suzuki, forward by Carl Jung This fast became my favorite book a few years ago and I am going to dive back into it again. The introduction by psychologist Carl G Jung is phenomenal, and almost as enlightening as the rest of the book. I've never felt the spirit as much reading anything other...

Re: Challenges in life & the impact of prayer.

It was a lonely, hopeless and terrifying feeling that still persists. The blankness. It's hard for me to reconcile these huge gaps as well. I only hope that I will not only understand why after this life, but that I will still have my consciousness, the 'me' after this life. I hope, beyond hope, th...

Re: Faith promoting stories

Sad part was that my SP let everyone leaving on a mission give their testimony and story, except me. So much for that faith promoting story. That sucks. What kind of life lesson does that teach? I'm sorry that happened. One of the dads in scouts was always teaching his son 'life lessons', I realize...
