Wow. A lot to take in here. Thank you (-), (+), (*)
A. [integral humour] Nope, not a joke.
I wrote this last week - it seems fitting…
What is needed at the present time is a new enthusiasm, a new joy and serenity of mind in the unreserved acceptance by all of the entire Integral faith, without forfeiting that accuracy and precision in its presentation which characterized SES/ROT. What is needed, and what everyone imbued with a truly Integral, holonic and apostolic [from Koestler to Gebser to Peterson] spirit craves today, is that this doctrine shall be more widely known, more deeply understood, and more penetrating in its effects on men’s moral lives. What is needed is that this certain and immutable doctrine, to which the faithful owe obedience, be studied afresh and reformulated in contemporary terms. For this deposit of faith, or truths which are contained in our time-honored teaching is one thing; the manner in which these truths are set forth (with their meaning preserved intact) is something else (*).
B. [righteous anger] I was a bit depressed yesterday, today also a bit.
Yeah, why did Jesus storm the Temple?
C. [archetypes] God’s Word the real Integral is contemplated in and then spoken out.
Okay. I’m going to have to think about that.
D. [partiality of wisdom/humility] But a human is just a human, so it can be only said to some extent, nothing more.
E. [synthesis - limits to the transpersonal insights of the individual stack] I got no real stack, just a heavy load of overthinking everything and wish to share all I have or all I think of.
Not sure if sarcasm or nested/flipped feedback… will take as sincere reflection. Or righteous indignation?
F. [karma police/praxis] In the topic of silence - I am not sure of scope of consequences of my actions, but I can create a silence on many internet communities. I need time to analyze all of the content and idea comes up, then I act and type some statement.
Similar to point E. Taking as constructive fb. Might be some feedback worth thinking about. Thanks. The work is ongoing.
G. [need for 2nd person - spirit] This emoticon is a clue to a body. We are all meat alive, sensual body is greatest achievement of evolution.
Agreed. It can hard to keep this in mind when working with such complex ideas. It is a specific path. Not for the feint hearted.
H. [eros] Sex is not, but touch is the core of relationship for me. And gaze into eyes of a partner/beloved one. Or beloved many, but that cannot be consumed and should not be, in my opinion.
Contact. Yes! (you have made contact baby!!)
I. [?] I will use markdown and bbcode, cool you have this on this community forum.
I also saw that integrallife updated visually the website plus the whole outlook (I don’t know if that’s correct). Slight changes, good colours, good tone (as in music).
So, implicit - reading between lines - why has God not struck yet? (ethics, community safety? good point?)
J. [AI] Appreciate that.
I’m really grateful of having an open community that is generous enough to offer space for chewing on the meet of some hefty intellectual work. Speaking personally, which is what I am always ever really doing, in a way… Integral theory has been a huge support for me (an E5). I am slowly becoming aware of the edges to E5 (tone of voice being a key to this I feel - just a starting point towards transformation). It is a mystery. I am grateful for the offering and resulting affordances (which can only be imagined on the scale of artefacts like the pyramids?). Spiritually and otherwise. I think I speak for many in making this statement.
K. [money] I am currently low on money and no income, but right now it is not a grave difficulty.
Thanks for maintaining the ideas of Wilbers. Or just philosophy of Wilber or anything, I don’t know. I guess the impact and work done is vastly more and more.
Why did Jesus ransack the temple?
Why did Josiah go into the Temple basement and find the forgotten scrolls? (Deuteronomic reform is pretty predicable is it not?)
L. [cleaning up ‘mess’/karma - not ‘splitting the space’] Good day to everyone.
I have been given a lot to ponder. I am grateful for this forum (intellectual freedom) and for the kindness of Casper (the friendly Ghost) feedback. Who knew dev/stack exchange - could be this much fun (*)??
