What is your thought on the absonite level of existence? Does that impinge on the existential ? Yes, it does, through the Supreme. 115:2.4 (1261.4) The apparent method whereby the possibilities of the cosmos are brought into actual existence varies from level to level, being experiential evolution ...

We are one large family and members of the family unfortunately have to bear the burdens caused by the mistakes of others. This is a great answer and something helpful to bear in mind both as someone who has to bear the burdens of others' mistakes and also as someone (like a parent) who sometimes m...

Here is something to think about on the topic of will. When the Thought Adjuster invades mind, it does so at the pre-personal level. At that level of personality, can the host exert will? I have not done in-depth research on this but at cursory glance I venture to say no as it is outside the framew...

William, What you will find as you continue to read is that the races are all mixed at this point. So you will not need to concern yourself with "what qualities I have or lack based on race." You most certainly will not find anything about policies that should be formed based on specific r...

Interestingly, we had a discussion along very similar lines almost a year ago. One of the moderators, Gremlin, shared a perspective that I very much agree with. See the thread here https://truthbook.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5475&hilit=block#p71238 If one only sees a reflection of one's ...

I simply want to understand various viewpoints on the matter, number one. A vote would not be fair because some who may have block on may not know about it. If MaryJo sees the perspectives and chooses to do something, that’s her prerogative. I do not expect it, necessarily. I think as a community it...

[ I truly didn't know this thread was about anyone As the person who started this thread, it was not intended to be about one individual. Several folks here habitually use the block feature. This thread is about the feature, not about the people. I did mention katroof at one point simply because I ...

The worst thing about the block tool is that it eliminates the ability for the person being blocked to apologize or seek forgiveness. Private messages are also blocked, so there is no avenue open for those who realize they’ve erred and wish to make amends to the person they’ve offended. If there’s o...

Just want to add that if I ever were truly being stalked on this forum, the LAST thing I would do is use the block button and go on merrily posting while being blind to the actions of someone who has ill intent toward me. I would report the stalking to the moderator and take a break from the forum u...

. I think the block feature is good to have. Most people don't like being badgered and stalked. And it is reasonable to assume no one feels like facing yet another barrage of attacks everyday by the same individual(s). I think women are move vulnerable in this respect and do really have to be cauti...

how about we show the self mastery and then there would be no need for someone to block someone else


Bingo. Finally, someone sees where I’m going with this. Self-mastery on everyone’s part.

I am merely suggesting a short-term experiment to see how we might evolve as a community in the direction of self-mastery. I truly don’t understand why that is threatening to so many of us here. Such fear of trying something new - trusting one another and demonstrating Jesus’ attitude of turning the...

I don't think Jesus was ever "Physically helpless". That's just my opinion, of course. But don't worry, I won't block you! :biggrin:

For example, I'd really like to understand Katroof's thoughts on the point I made earlier: Katroof wrote: Don't forget, it's the attack that is being blocked, not the person. That’s simply not true. You ARE blocking the person; you cannot see any of the constructive, well-researched posts made by th...

So, here we have a perfect illustration of the point I've been making. Katroof apparently has me blocked (it has been evident in other threads, also). Yet, she comes into my thread and throws her perspective around, while not listening to anything I have to say. Why would she participate in my threa...
