    The Book of Zohar.

    Ok, I'll kick off, although I don't have much to offer. I first read the Zohar about 50+ years ago.(It was my father's). The thing that stands out in my (failing!) memory is that the writer describes his experiences of the ayn-sof which can be thought of as the source of existence(see link...

    Absolute Truth

    I have met so many people who are strong believers in their religion/belief system as being the absolute truth, each one being totally sincere, that I do not believe that there is an objective absolute truth to be discovered. I see we all sit in our own versions and personally, I enjoy...

    Mysticism – a Christian response to a Baha'i statement

    I have never seen this before, but it reminded me of a devotional quality I have seen in other writings. I was curious to find out more and found a site that's worth looking to get more detail on St Augustine's thoughts. ETA I forgot to post the site...

    Reform Jew

    @ReformJew @RabbiO and anyone else I am a born Jew and spent my first 20+ years within Judaism, some years as orthodox others as modern-not-so-orthodox. My first 18 years I went to Jewish-orthodox schools and was fairly well versed in Tanach. Later on I was in Israel where I spent some time...

    Why I take the Bible literally

    Where I live, I have noticed in recent years several people becoming flat-Earthers. People that I thought never would believe such a thing. As I progress my year-count, very little surprises me anymore. Personally I have sat through a few flat-Earth conversations and am not convinced. The flat...

At some point in his life he(David) became non-theistic but still continues with the meditation he was taught. My interest is because I also...

    Valmiki On my first reading all those years ago I was a Qualified Student in that I believed in the concepts of devotion to the living Guru, liberation and reincarnation etc. The reading of the book was an exceptional experience at the time. These days I probably would not be a qualified...

    John's Gospel

    As far as I know, being a JW(as in part of the organisation) means submission to the Governing body which determines all the doctrines etc. TheMadJW clearly doesn't submit to this body, so he does not represent the movement in any way, even though he says he has the same beliefs. Many JW's...

    The Mystery of God’s Will Unfolding in this Matrix

    @Modesty I used to go to their mosque in London where they regularly had interfaith meetings. Individuals would each make a presentation of their beliefs. These meetings really incresed goodwill amongst the larger community.

    The Mystery of God’s Will Unfolding in this Matrix

    I have spent much time with Bahai & Ahmadi communities. It was in a secular way , meaning I was not looking at their religious claims, but rather how they lived and interacted with their local communities in England. I have met with Ahmadis in Israel, which is the only country in the Middle...
