01) Alan Watts Explains What Awakening Means


“As the New-Age con artists and gurus continue to get richer and gain more followers by mixing nonsense and woowoo with genuine spiritual teachings of the east, I think it’s important to keep the pure teachings alive.

In this clip Alan Watts explains what “Awakening” means, and no, it doesn’t have anything to do with saying Namaste or finding significance in seeing the clock when it’s 11:11 or thinking that the placement of planets in the solar system somehow affects your mood and personality…”

“At least 49 people have been killed and 20 seriously injured after gunmen opened fire in two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, a coordinated and unprecedented attack that has shocked the usually peaceful nation. New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called the incident a terrorist attack in a press conference, saying the suspects held “extremist views” that have no place in New Zealand or the world.”

01) Up to 3,000 Isis children living in ‘extremely dire conditions’

“As many as 3,000 children born into Islamic State families are being housed in camps in north-east Syria, Unicef estimates, with many younger than six years old and living in “extremely dire conditions”.

Unicef’s regional director for the Middle East, Geert Cappelaere, said many of the children in Syria were unwanted in the camp, adding to their vulnerability. There has so far been little interest from third party countries to offer resettlement.

“We estimate that close to 3,000 children of foreign nationality are living in extremely dire conditions,” he said. “There are many more children of Syrian and Iraqi parents, unfortunately with the same Isis label, many of them younger than six years old. These are children, not terrorists. These are children entitled to a childhood, deserving a fair chance in life.”

The results of religious extremism…

…This is among the saddest testimonies, of how badly off the rails things can get.

Those poor kids.

01) A Protestant Learns About Greek Orthodoxy


“Greek Orthodoxy has always been a bit of a mystery to me, and I wanted to get a clearer sense of what it’s all about so I drove down to the Assumption Cathedral in Denver, Colorado and spent the morning getting answers straight from the source.

Huge thanks to Father Chris Margaritis for taking the time to hang out!”

Interesting video…I’ve never before seen the inside of a temple [church?], of this sect.

01) Muslims Threaten To LEAVE UK Over LGBT Education


I agree…this is backwards…

It sounds like a whole lot of fuss, over what likely amounts to surface level lessons on human respect.

…Should religious groups be allowed to dictate, that non-private schools cannot teach such lessons?…And if they have such power, then what separates these schools from private religious schools?
