Have you gotten any feedback from other friends from words you have expressed here?  I for one would like you to digest in a paragraph what you are talking about & post it to Facebook & see what kind of feedback you get.
Well this morning i saw a meme float by which slightly expressed some of the world outlook that i talked about above.  I think i got enough feedback to say that at least d'A and Katya, and strangely enough even you with your excellent Zen link, found my words understandable and somewhat agreeable. 

Look cutting loose the spiritual/material dichotomy "story" is a hard one ... and deep ... very deep ... er, at least me thinks it is.  More so since it seems to fly in the face of much of RS's teachings.  Then too it can sound like just capitulating everything to a materialistic world view.  But i claim it is not such a capitalization.  It only seem so because then we can no longer talk about what could be called "the purely physical" with sneer and distaste in our voice  , and then turn around and talk of the spiritual with extreme reverence and faith.   outside of that, nothing basically is changed from RS's spirituality ... er, except perhaps some of the more fantastical sounding sagas that require his clairvoyance to experience.  All this "new" weltanschauung does, is to say that "it is all spirit" ... or perhaps, "it is all physical" ... same thing ... just a different experiential focus.


I repost this here not because i want to focus on it, but rather that understanding it is a prerequisite for understanding what i want to say about "World as Person".
