    it's cool. i think i'm just alarmed by all of the people saying "The Lord told me to do this or that..." when it just sounds like conscience at work. Maybe in the worst cases, it's ego. Like those TV preachers... they're always talking about what the Lord told them to do... like entire conversations with the lord and shit.

    So the sexual repression found in the more ascetic religions is subduing God? Or is it harnessing the inertia... or drive of that inner-God by not releasing sexual tension?

    It's mostly leading them to bugger deaf children, I think.

    Sure, we sublimate ourselves into art or science or caring for others.

    And when we sublimate, we are sublime.

    Sublimation is not for everyone.

    For ice sublimates into vapour, but some of us are destined to remain frozen forever.

    And the lowest level of hell is not fire but ice.

    I've been sifting information looking for God this whole time; come to find he's been in my pants the entire way. I am totally at peace.

    God was a concept created with the conscious, that swept into our subconscious, and that we can't validate until we're unconscious.

    I think the American National Anthem should be changed to "One Nation Under Sex Drive".

    There's a huge difference between the greatness of a person - and God (Himself).

    My question was I guess - do you agree, disagree, does this make sense? I thought it was an interesting train of thought. It also reminded me of this book:

    Amazon.com: Practice of the Presence of God, The (9780800785994): Lawrence: Books

    Which is really a guidebook on how to pray. In this book, it seems what you're essentially doing is bringing stillness to the mind, giving the unconscious a better window to creep out, and that is God speaking to you. I can't recall if there was something in there about the power of collective thoughts or collective unconscious - but that might add to the power of it. In either case, the mechanisms would appear to be consistent to supporting what's said above and this book in the link was distributed by my church. It's quite good.

    All of this probably resonates for me a little more because as Ni dominant, tapping into the unconscious may be something I'm a bit more used to thinking about or doing, though I may have not trained myself how to do it well.
