    Listen, when I die and come back and tell you where...................

    I often think, if we can trust an anesthesiologist, why not God?

    Because God is not available on private health-care plans.

    THE GLADIATOR That kind of talk is pure ignorance. You dont know what I know so how can you begin to judge me. Im not defending the JW's, all religions have truth to them. I believe with my accumulated knowledge of many religions and occult teaching that this is true. If you would have taken the time to challenge my ideas I would have gone more in depth on the transfer of energy and where the idea of being aware after death comes from.



    That kind of talk is pure ignorance.

    If there is life after death then my statement would amount to ignorance.

    On the other hand, if we only live as part of this planet and return to dust at death, then your statement, "You die and the next day you wake up greeted by a new world." would be a statement based on ignorance.

    As neither of us can know with certainty, we are both ignorant in the true sense of the word.

    yes we are. and as long as we never become closed to new ideas we will always be open to the truth. my ideas are only based on my current knowledge. i love for people to challenge them. whenever someone comes up with something better than i have, i take their ideas on.

    I have faith that we survive death of the human body - we are more than just physical.

    The only reality I know is the reality I'm living now, the present. When I die and there is a "place" I go to, then I'll find that out then. For now, I'm only concerned about living the best life I can live because that is the only life I know I have. Whatever happens after death is pure speculation. Maybe we go to heaven? Maybe we go to Hell? Maybe we don't go anywhere.

    It's the journey of life that enthralls me, not the destination of death.

    What are we that we can go anywhere.

    Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.

    I believe there is more to us than meets the eye.

    Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

    It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

    We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
    talented and fabulous?

    Actually, who are you not to be?

    You are a child of God.

    Your playing small does not serve the world.

    There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

    people won't feel insecure around you.

    We were born to make manifest the glory of
    God that is within us.

    It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

    And as we let our own light shine,
    we unconsciously give other people
    permission to do the same.

    As we are liberated from our own fear,
    Our presence automatically liberates others.

    There is an aura that surrounds each of us; some special few are able to see it, while others can only feel it.

    The first man was created in His image after all!

    Awesome, Snow.

    I'll channel some Shakespeare, now.

    What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how
    infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and
    admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like
    a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals—and yet,
    to me, what is this quintessence of dust?
