From David Bentley Harts's "The doors of the sea."

Re: Jesus and Krishnamurti

Krishnamurti;
Man has throughout the ages been seeking
something beyond himself, beyond ... That is the first thing to learn - not to seek.

Jesus;

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

Jesus and Krishnamurti

I have found insightful parallels in the sayings of Jesus and in the speaking of J Krishnamurti. Being the 'adventure of faith board,' I intend to post some for reflection; thank you.

Re: more being itself

This just occured to me while reading. Thinking of it now though does that sounds too mec...

Re: more being itself

Thanks Joe for that response, plenty to consider. I'm trying to get at some thing here but not being so scholarly i get frustrated expressing my self.

I await my books. I ordered ToG & David Hart's 'Doors of the sea.'

Looking forward to those.
