  • Darkmaer shared from Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain
    Introversion—along with its cousins sensitivity, seriousness, and shyness—is now a second-class personality trait, somewhere between a disappointment and a pathology.
  • Darkmaer shared from Not in His Image: Gnostic Vision, Sacred Ecology, and the Future of Belief by John Lamb Lash
    In historical perspective it now appears that salvationist religion is not a religion at all, not in the sense that it genuinely concerns itself with the Divine and responds in a compassionate and insightful way to human spiritual needs. Rather, it is a political system in religious guise, a system “whose fundamental model is domination.” The apocalyptic world-ending represents the climax of male domination. It is the final vindication of patriarchal power.

  • Darkmaer shared from The Complete Conversations with God by NealeDonald Walsch
    You will not have that for which you ask, nor can you have anything you want. This is because your very request is a statement of lack, and your saying you want a thing only works to produce that precise experience—wanting—in your reality. The correct prayer is therefore never a prayer of supplication, but a prayer of gratitude. When you thank God in advance for that which you choose to experience in your reality, you, in effect, acknowledge that it is there…in effect. Thankfulness is thus the most powerful statement to God; an affirmation that even before you ask, I have answered.

  • Darkmaer shared from The Complete Conversations with God by NealeDonald Walsch
    Now the supreme irony here is that you have all placed so much importance on the Word of God, and so little on the experience. In fact, you place so little value on experience that when what you experience of God differs from what you’ve heard of God, you automatically discard the experience and own the words, when it should be just the other way around.
