11:00 pm - Ethics
sweetmemories69 One of the biggest problems I find lacking today across the spirituality spectrum is a real reinforcement of ethics. I have fallen prey myself of not being very ethical when it comes to magic and spirituality and I have equally learned from my mistakes.

Some issues I have seen:

1. I use to think the 3-fold law was trite and redundant, but if you really look at what it is trying to say, I think it is quite beautiful. Live your life how you please without harming the natural order. What could be more beautiful than that?

2. Psychic readings should not be done in the open.

3. Magic is sometimes a necessary tool for trancendence. Sometimes it is necessary to solve a problem. But magic should not be used for everything. The Tao teaches to go with the flow of life, and to hone your mind and thoughts. To me, that is real magic. To be in control of yourself, and to be one with life.

4. Just because you can do something does not mean you should.

5. Contacting people on the otherside is good if those people on the other side need closure. But doing it to show others that it is real or simply for the sake of contact is pointless. If you have to see to believe, it takes away inner growth and realization.

6. Many spiritual paths on the western end teach about self-fulfillment but very little about service to humanity. The real goal of spirituality should be what you can bring to others, not what you can get.

With great power comes equal responsibility. If you give a child a gun, you have to expect that the child with shoot his or her self. If you teach an unaware person magic, you have to expect that they will use it for destruction and not creation or create destruction.

Real spirituality is about being good and loving to yourself and to all those involved. Real magic enriches everyones life. It does not enrich just one person.

Remember that as you grow more spiritual, you should also grow more ethical. If one of them is falling behind, you know you have lost the path.

4:22 pm - when i was younger...

anotheryourself
people used to call me an angel and it would really bother me, because i thought it implied perfection and also it made me feel sort of dead. i had a very storybook idea of angels, as people who'd lived a very good life who died and went to heaven.

my girlfriend started calling me her angel recently and we talked about it, and she uses the term to refer to the spark of the divine in me, that everyone has, and i like that idea a lot. i like that i am her "imperfect angel," and that we're all imperfect angels.

1:55 am - aliens angels

lilylith
angels:
they are depicted in the bible as beings who 'were never human, and never will be'- many people believe them to be aliens.
there are paintings that show 'spaceships' in the background of many of the religious prints.
what are your views?

Hello everyone!

My name is Aerica, and I'm pretty happy to have found a community like this! ^_^

Lately I've been having visions and dreams of alligators and fish. I have always leaned toward Native American spirituality, so I guess that they are my totems, right now. :)

What do you think?

3:14 pm - how do you weigh in?

lilylith
i get really paranoid when things start going well in my life. waiting for the ax to drop? it feels that way to me from experience, everytime good things happend, it was followed by bad, usually in equal proportions. sometimes i thought that it was due to me getting good things by hurting someone. in the past, a few things like that did happen that way,
balance? karma? what do you call it.

lilylith
when you meet someone for the first time who just seems familiar. seeing how there are so many ways of "meeting someone" whether it be in person or online. i've met a few people who i just click with. same temperment? semi shared history? reincarnation? :P
i think you meet the people you do for a reason.

Gosh... funny you mention dreams.

I've been having dreams of a friend of mine recently. I think they're more subconscious thinking tho based on his thoughts. We went out last year one time, and have communicated via chat, and it seems that he's interested again, but I'm taken now. It's very difficult to make decisions based on love and lust sometimes, so that's where my dreams surround.

Nothing ever happens in the dreams, but there's the thought there all the time. Don't know what to make of it but I'll live with it, and I'm sure I'll make the right decision.

Blessings )O(

11:39 am - kids

lilylith
and "reincarnation"
discuss.
i want to ask kids who they were in previous lives to see what the responses would be.

when i was a kid i had some really interesting dreams where i'd be led to this huge room and this guy was holding a book he kept reading to me. i'd only be able to dream this if i'd rub my eyes before i drifted off and really concentrated on getting there.
there were a few times when i'd see something a person was going to say and the it would happen. i'd look at them and they'd kind of look at me but didn't want me to say anything about it.
i also remember when i first tried to walk and speak this language. it was alot of effort, but i kept feeling frustrated at myself for not being able to just do it.. like i had before?
anyway, i've read that if you talk to kids, you can ask them questions like, who they were before, why they come here again etc. and since they're closest to the other "side" then you'll get some interesting answers.
