[quote author=“homunculus”]Moreno, I hope you’ll elaborate. Sounds intriguing.
By the way, I’m hoping someday to own a Moreno. (Toyota, right?)
Well, you can base your religion (not a word I generally use, but..) on experiences both spontaneous and experienced via ritual, meditation, group work, emotional work, focusing, etc. And also just by having an open mind. This last is often claimed by rationalists and scientists, but in actual fact it is not easy to have an open mind. You begin to experience something outside the accepted norm, the mind leaps in and questions the phenomenon even as it is just coming into awareness, cutting off the experience. Ideals of having an open mind often seem to be held by people who do not really have much of a grasp of how their own mind works, how fast these processes occur and how much emotional investment they have in not experiencing anything that might indicate things?processes outside their current paradigm.
IN any case I have had a lot of experiences that indicate we are dealing with a living world, that reincarnation is true and that there are entities considered supernatural or hallucinatory by many people that do in fact exist. I do not have faith in these things, nor do I believe because an authority figure -a text, a person, my parents, etc. - has told me to. It is experience based.
