How can it be bullcrap to merely choose a different appellation for the same thing?
are you so sure its the "same" thing...
I drew that from Malai's post. Quote:What are commonly understood as "Angels", or "Guardian Angels" we understand as your Higher Self. End Quote. Malai is making that connection.
and by appellation you mean???...are you so sure it falls into the catagory of appellation???
Name. It appears that Malai and qmark (et al) have different names for the same thing, unless I have misunderstood what Malai meant by "angels we understand as higher self."
I thought qmark's BULLCRAP comment on your views..was pretty spot on meself...(though I do want to stay open minded to your thoughts and viewpoints at1with0)
He was criticizing Malai's post, not mine. I personally have little interest on the label and the baggage that label carries, whether it is 'angel' or 'higher self'. His article on Higher Self in this section that he recently posted spells out "his" view and I can read that entire document replacing HIGHER SELF with ANGEL and it makes the same amount of sense. For examples, angels are go-betweens between the "little self" and the soul ("True self"). You can couch everything in different terms but the resulting perspective is essentially no more different than a different coat of paint on a house: the house is the same regardless of how you color it. The terms are not what the concept depends on.
I think you are talking about entirely two different things...qmark is stating there is a "reality", that does exist, outside of our own reality, the latter , not being the be all and end all, of truth or reality.
(we did not even create ourselves at1with0...how can we possibly find ALL the answers to truth and reality within ourselves?) Something we did not not even have a hand in engineering ?< (for the most part...besides maintenance)
My goal isn't to get ALL the answers. I'm interested in the questions that pertain to my evolution, reality as a whole and my role or lack thereof in it, and whatever it is that I need
to know. I don't want
to know all the answers. I only want to know what I need to know. This is knowledge that pertains to myself. And the higher self and angels as messengers between me and something "bigger" than my(little)self, provides that automatically.
