Solidarism, Interfaith Spirituality & Ecology

What is interfaith spirituality?

The definition of the Center for Economic & Social Justice (‘CESJ' ) is as good as any:

‘There is a Source of all creation and of all universal and absolute values such as Truth, Love and Justice, which represent the ultimate ends of human actions. Many people call ...

ALBERT [E = MC2] EINSTEIN’S GOD

Often when asked if he were religious, Albert Einstein gave this answer, “I’m not an atheist. I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist [one who believes the existing universe is God; or one who believes in the worship of all gods]”. What he did believe, it seems, is that nature followed laws ...

Faith-based Politics or ‘Themocracy’?

Haven't we had enough of that already? Well, that depends on what you mean by ‘faith'. George Bush apparently believes that ‘faith' means the ‘Christian faith'. He's wrong. There are many faiths (in this sense) and all faith-based states, no matter whether Christian, Jewish, Hindu or Muslim, always ...

Mirrors of Time; Book Review by Caritas Puella

Psychiatry probably is the least “scientific” of the medical arts.  Much of what psychiatrists do cannot meet the medical criteria, i.e., put under a microscope, dissected, or replicated in double blind studies.  But still the practice continues growing into a more humane discipline and away from ...

HET IS MOOI GEWEEST ... Voor sommigen!

Er is weer een jaar voorbij. We schieten ze nog voor hun raap in Irak en Afganistan, maar count your blessings. Sinterklaas heeft milieudefensie en ‘alisdeleugennogzosnel’ uit zijn zak getoverd. Lang leve Bali en gelukkig gaan we niet naar Iran. Hopen we… We zijn met velen, die zich afvragen wat er ...

Is GOD A Liberal?

By: Caritas Puella
Often the "L" word is spoken pejoratively.  Nothing can impugn a person's credibility more-especially in the political arena-than having the "L" word tossed around or about you, particularly by an opponent.  But why, when conservatives never hear their apparent "narrow ...

Truth is Great and will Prevail

‘There is no vacuum’. In an undated text these words stand out: ‘Nequaquam vacuum’, there is no vacuum in the universe. A vacuum would collapse upon itself. A vacuum is non-being. We cannot conceive of non-being. If something is not, it simply is not and can have no meaning to us, precisely because ...

Quite an Ego-trip!

So you think you can extract our planet from the Universe and rebuild it in your own image? That’s quite an ego-trip, my friend. From the Cosmic perspective we are no more than microbes crawling on the face of a speck of dirt, spinning around in the middle of nowhere, circling around another speck ...

Yahoo in China Doublespeak

Well in fact, the US also double-speaks. The land of the free has been spying on its own people ever since the ‘war on terrorism’ began (if not before, but we don’t know that). So all this fuss about China spying on its own people is insincere. We agree that the state has no right to imprison its ...

A Just Solution for Iraq

At this time of grave danger to freedom and democracy from within and from without, we need new ideas. We need new paradigmatic ideas. What follows is such an idea. We copy it verbatim from www.catholicprwire.com where it was posted on 23 August 2007 (note: sub-headings were added by us). The idea ...

We Hang in Between

One of our biggest mistakes is the belief that we are sovereign. True it is, our Inner Self is sovereign, our conscience if you will. But we as human beings are utterly dependent on the Spirit. Without the Spirit in us, our hearts would not beat. If the Spirit falters just a couple of minutes, ...

Russia and China teaming up to counter the US

The members of the security alliance ‘Shanghai Cooperation Organization’ (S.C.O.) have recently been hosting their largest joint military exercises in Russia and China. All six permanent members of the organization have participated from August 9-16. The joint military exercises, dubbed "Peace ...

Welcome, Terror!

The fascist tendencies which have come to the surface around the globe, both in Islamic and Christian countries, as well as in communist states such as Cuba and China (and even in Hindu India), is there for us to conquer and give us the fuel and incentive to rise to a higher planetary level. This ...

Making Good Use of Destructive Energy

It is a fact well-known in physics that energy is generated when things are destroyed. Let’s look at food for a simple example. When you eat, you first destroy the food in your mouth. Then your stomach takes over and destroys it even more, enabling your intestines to extract the required energy. ...

Weinig rechtsgeleerdheid

In de Renaissance verzuchtte een geleerde dat er ‘veel Theologie en Medicijnen’ is, maar ‘slechts weinig Rechtsgeleerdheid’. De schalen van de weegschaal zijn halve cirkels (de illustratie is een beetje vertekend; ze behoren halve cirkels te zijn). Zij vormen dus samen een hele cirkel. Het ...

Cat Predicts Patient deaths

You’d better get rid of the cat. For if the patients start believing that the cat can predict their death, the suggestion would indeed kill them. This is how Voodoo magic works. First you create a belief, then you use the belief in a suggestion, and - lo and behold! - the magic works! For example, ...

Light is the veil of god

The broad conclusion is, then, that God is beyond light. There is a Sun beyond the sun, in other words. But who is to say that the Biblical text could not mean that God is both the light and that which is beyond the light? In other words, maybe the Creator and the created are one? Viewed thus, God ...
