    The Well – perfectly profound. We come to the well for water…the source where our thirst is slaked, our thirst for that which is life-preserving and life-giving. We come to the well for our own depths…the source where our spirit is heard, for our quest to know that which is hidden and meaningful. We come to this particular well where we meet others approaching with their pitchers seeking the kinship of other souls who thirst for the wisdom and sustenance of purity.

    This is not an exact quote from Abraham Maslow, I don’t have the book with me to look it up. but i have carried the impression it let with me over the years because it rang as a truism.

    That if “Religion” was not willing to evolve with the People it claims to serve, it would find it’s self obsolete at some future time because the truth seeking hunger of people would not stand still for the non-moving Dogmas and traditions of religion.
    God is so big that our best and highest ideas and concepts of Him/Her/IT are mire speckles in the true totality that is “IT”

    True Religion must be one that grows with the Human capacity to learn, Understand, and comprehend more over time, as we spiritually evolve, any old beliefs that has no room for growth will fad in time like so many through out the century’s of human history’s

    What an appropriate name. Spiritualism is deep as a well is deep.
    I can sit and feel life all around me and become silent within.

    I have a question, well i am hoping to lead towards some important chains of thought.

    The question first.

    We have plenty of persons that have had “Near Death Experiences”.
    There are many persons whom have sheared, even written book about First contact experiences with a Divine source.

    Are these worth discussion here or are they seen as machinations of the Mind, thus over-look or just written off because they are to easily seen as the ranting of mentally unstable persons?

    Granted; there are many person in our world that have fleets of Fantastic Thinking, and those with Bipolar, or even Schizophrenia conditions. But does that mean we should not notice that there may actually be active spiritual forces attempting to work with the Human race all with in the realm of Non-interference, but Guidance and with in a persons personal willingness to know?

    Would really love to hear some feed back on these issues..ty

    In my opinion, near death or even death-back-to-life experiences are very personal, and I doubt if they could ever be expressed to others, or the living as an example of what the next life is all about. Our Next existence is going to be a personal path just as much as is this one. The whole concept of when we die we will all return to God and sit around singing praises to Him for the rest of eternity, is so foreign to who we really are. Our relationship to our creator is personal. what it is for me will be for me, and it may not be the same for you. Even in the next life. My feeling is that the spiritual existence (angels or whatever you want to call them/it) is now participating in our lives and is constantly assisting us Through our journey. This is not something we have to develop, we simply just connect to it and it serves our greater good. Sylvan

    Thanks Sylvan, I think you bring up a good point.
    Many ppl are bound to ideas about what the next phase of life is because of our spoon fed concept from Religion that they forget to give them selves permission to thing out side the box and realize that life after this one will be some thing amazing and pro-active a constant experience of continuing growth. ever moving towards perfection and who know what else.
    And Yes, it is always a personal relationship that each of us have with the Divine and how it grows and moves us is out journey no one elses.

    Thank you Zym for your comments back to me. It is refreshing to be able to chat with people who ‘get it’. We are already eternal beings, we just get to change locations as we progress through eternity. I often think that it is possible we can either do as the spirit/universe suggests (assuming we have connected to said universe), or we can ‘contract’ with God as we are taught in our various religions. We will get what we choose. For me, I would rather be connected and move based upon real choice, instead of some contract written for me by a so-called representative of God. I spent 60 some odd years under the contract system, and I never really learned how to love anyone, even myself. Well anyway here I am!!!!
