    Re: What does spirituality mean to you?

    Sure, np. Spirituality is hard to pin down. To comprehensively and accurately describe. This is amazing given how many of us experience it. One very compelling explanation for why this is, is the...

    Well, perhaps... don’t worry about this. Follow Pollans advice.

    Re: What does spirituality mean to you?

    Thx, it was hard to define without saying too much or too little.

    Its super interesting on multiple levels. Particularly in that while the sense of the numinous is ubiquitous to humanity,...

    Re: What does spirituality mean to you?

    I’d define spirituality as the practice of developing one’s faculties of and seeking out opportunities for the sense of the numinous.

    It’s difficult to itemize all of the ways this helps me in my...

    Re: Totems & Animal familiars

    It might be more useful to consider descriptions of wendigo as convention of interpretation endemic to Great Lakes culture, rather than literal truth. I offer this in that it represented taboos...

    I don’t. It’s worth noting that -we- may not exist to be someone else’s extraterrestrials for much longer. If this thing goes pear shaped, we’ll have blipped in and out of existence in roughly zero...

    Re: Changing relationship. Is he an alcoholic?

    If he got prettier, but kept drinking beer, would you still be bothered? Don’t take this as a judge mental line of questioning. Disabuse yourself of any social conditioning or personal ideas about...

    Re: Changing relationship. Is he an alcoholic?

    Beer doesn’t cause beer bellies. Calories and genetics do. Simple solution for that one is to burn more calories. There are more ways to accomplish that than there are to avoid it. I’d be careful...

    Re: Can one fail as human being?

    Smoking anything is bad for our health. The ganj is another example of how we might recognize that something is bad for us, but prefer that consequence to some other, presumably worse. Another blow...

    Re: Can one fail as human being?

    Well...hitting the ganj is certainly better for me than going full ptsd commando and strangling my wife in a state of semi sleep...which is where I was pre-smoking the ganj.

    Well, that’s not off topic at all . Get out there and vol for Biden. I bet it’ll make you feel better about life and politics and society. Good luck in 2020.

    Re: I Want To Move To Another Planet

    Sadly, OP, we’ve yet to confirm life elsewhere. So I guess we can keep the “take me to your leader” pictographs in the closet for another day.
