If I don’t knock will there still be an answer?

by on Apr.13, 2010, under New Religion

I am certain within my own understandings the only reason we human beings have announced the presence of a soul, or spirit, is because our need to survive is pushed past the grave. And since there is not a viable, empirical, man-made means of extending life, we create a vessel to carry us forth. Think about it. What religion do you know needs this “vessel” if you do not continue past death? I too, find a spirit comforting when pondering life. While I claim no faith in it in any form, I welcome its existence.

I think there is a means of “interacting” with spirit, that resides in us all as it interpenetrates the rest of reality. I chose to believe that. I have numerous rationalities, all comforting enough to me to not leave me in despair. However, the “past death” thing goes in so many directions for me still I could not be concrete enough to offer an objective view. The best I can do is join in conversations and reach for the moment as it reveals itself to my understandings.

I recall an author from my investigations long ago, (when I was a teen), his name was Rudolf Steiner. He coined a phrase I liked, called “Super-sensible knowledge.” I think of it as intuition, with a foot in humanity. It seems to come into play for me whenever I let my mind wander.

So, will the deity you follow open the door if I don’t knock?

    I shouldn’t be surprizing so hard at that.
