In reply to Liberation Theology anyone?, posted by Jai on November 21, 2003, at 14:43:37

Jai is an interesting name. Is it not rastafarian?
My pilgrimage has taken me around the world and back. "Eden West " a Berkely commune and the teachings of the asiatic russian, Gurdief, and Ospensky flavored with the touch of whirling dervishes. Rastas ,in the UK, then buddhist in UK. Started out to be a Muslim for the Jihad, in Southern Europe, Made it as far as the Black Forrest. It has been a long and marvelous trip.
Many places Ive encounterd truth. There is someting true in everything. But the culmination, the drawing to crystal like clarity were strings being all wound togeather for me in mystical eastern orthodox church, the mystical part being, the important part to the majoririty of western converts who are my brothers and sisters.
The bits and pieces I have found scatterd and all the smatterings of truth (valuable smatterings, mind you) I have found in the fullness of in Ancient Orthodxy.
Not much has changed for 2000 yrs. For two thousand years the tales and life inspiration of the church continues and does not end on page 332 Of the King James Bible. The life of the spirit lives on in new holy ones each passing day who pass it on. It must be passed from a living person to living person. The holy ones serve as prayer guides and intessor for struggles they understand as they too have struggled with and overcome. They surround our lives with love and inspiration. When the worst has come they have fought for me (oh now, they will lock me away)
And went I felt the most unsavable they brought to my rememberence a phrase of Doestesky's "Truth is Beauty, and Beauty is Truth"
The God of heaven and earth was metioned many times By Lao Sui ( I love the statue of him riding off to the end of the world on his water buffulo)He was trying to restore his people to monotheism, the tao, the one way. God has revealed bits of himself all throught history.
I am rambling
If You get a chance try "Christ the Eternal Tao"
I think you might enjoy it Jai. Thanks for the chance to share my self with you.
