"We should seek the truth without hesitation; and, if we refuse it, we
show that we value the esteem of men more than the search for truth."
-- Blaise Pascal
   
 

"So far only art is still born out of the activity of the living spirit, out
of the intuitive perception. Art alone has had a natural and therefore
a normal and healthy origin and development. The spirit, however,
does not express itself in the intellect, but in the intuitive perceptions,
and only manifests in what is generally called "deep inner feeling"
("Gemuet"). That is just what the intellectual man of today, who is so
inordinately proud of himself, likes to mock and ridicule. Thus he
derides what is most valuable in man, yes, the very thing that
really makes man a human being!"

   LATEST ADDITIONS (as of 05/06/12)
NEW BOOK "The Christian And Reincarnation" by Stephen M. Lampe - "One compelling reason
            for a serious interest in reincarnation is that, rightly understood, it holds the key to an understanding of the many
            apparent injustices and the misfortunes that befall people in what appears to be a haphazard, random and
            inexplicable manner. These circumstances lead many people to ask why, if God exists, and is just and loving,
            there should be so much misery in the world, so much suffering that appears undeserved, and also many seemingly
            unearned gifts and opportunities... Unfortunately, many people have become atheists or are only half hearted
            believers because the answers they are provided to this and similar key questions are not convincing.
            Thinking people need answers that are logical and that are also in tune with their intuitive sensing of an
            Almighty God whose attributes must include perfect justice and love... An objective of this book is to show how
            the right understanding of reincarnation and its mechanisms lead to an absolute conviction, not mere belief, in the
            perfect Justice and Love of God."
