Chapter One: Your Mind is Your Religion by Lama Thubten Yeshe When I talk about mind, I’m not just talking about my mind, my trip. I’m talking about the mind of each and every universal living being. The way we live, the way we think—everything is dedicated to material pleasure. We consider sense objects to be of utmost importance and materialistically devote ourselves to whatever makes us happy, famous or popular. As long as we exist, our mind is an inseparable part of us. Don’t think that examining and knowing the nature of your mind is just an Eastern trip. One day the world looks so beautiful; the next day it looks terrible. Similarly, one person thinks that the world is beautiful and people are wonderful and kind, while another thinks that everything and everyone are horrible. Do not expect material objects to satisfy you or to make your life perfect; it’s impossible. If you don’t know your own psychology, you might ignore what’s going on in your mind until it breaks down and you go completely crazy. What, then, is satisfaction? Lama: Yes.

Dans les années 90, des travaux avaient montré que la sérotonine pouvait provoquer des états similaires à ceux causés par les drogues psychédéliques (ex : le LSD) comme la modification de la perception, les hallucinations ou le sentiment de fusion avec le monde... D’autres recherches sur la structure du cerveau ont révélé une zone du cortex, le cortex pariétal supérieur qui fonctionne au ralenti lors du fameux sentiment de fusion mystique avec le monde. Il ressort de ces travaux que l’homme paraît "programmé pour croire en Dieu".

sophau Religion, Science, and Spirit: A Sacred Story for Our Time by David Korten Is it possible that the human future depends upon a new sacred story—a story that gives us a reason to care? Could it be a story already embraced by a majority, although it has neither institutional support nor a place in the public conversation? posted Jan 17, 2013 “For people, generally, their story of the universe and the human role in the universe is their primary source of intelligibility and value,” Thomas Berry wrote in The Dream of the Earth. “The deepest crises experienced by any society are those moments of change when the story becomes inadequate for meeting the survival demands of a present situation.” The challenge before us is to create a new civilization based on a cosmology—a story of the origin, nature, and purpose of creation that reflects the fullness of our current human knowledge. We live at such a moment. Three Cosmologies Three distinct cosmologies have each had their influence in shaping the Western worldview. The cosmos is created and ruled by a Distant Patriarch.

Accueil ISTA - Institut des Sciences et des Techniques de l'Anti Internet Resources for the Study of Judaism and Christianity This page lists a number of sites on the Internet that are useful for the study of Judaism and Christianity. The list is necessarily partial, provisional, and even parochial. A casual glance will show how Penn-centered it is. It is amazing that this much relevant information already exists on the Internet. Some of this material is brilliant, and much of it is useful. One should realize, however, that most original research must still begin in a good library. Thanks to Alan Humm, Anthony F.
