  1. Hi all! I am new to the forum. It's sooo great to talk philosophy, spirituality, etc. with people who are open and willing to experiment with new ideas. Among other things, I like to draw. Lately, I've found it very theraputic to draw some of the scenes, motifs, and characters that pop up in my dreams. I'm pretty New-Agey and I am always looking from the hidden meanings in everything I come in contact with. Below is a pic I did last week. I call this guy "The Dreamon". He delivered pizza to me in a dream. (I guess being a dreamon doesn't pay the bills)

  2. Emerson may hate quotations, but I love them. They give me fuel for meditation, inspiration, and motivation. They can inform and enrich my own philosophies about life, the universe, and everything...one book called them patches of godlight. Here are a few of my current favorites below. Please send me some of your favorites too.

    "Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it." --Lewis Carroll

    "Real religion before God is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world." --James 1:27

    "Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you'll look back and realize they were big things.” --Kurt Vonnegut

    "All men are by nature equal, made all of the same earth and by one Workman; and however we deceive ourselves, the poor peasant is as dear to God as the mighty prince." --Plato

    "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit." --My Granny

  3. err...maybe this is just a synatx thing, but there's no such thing as a "The Baptist Church." The are baptist churches but a central tennet of the baptist doctrine is that there is no higher ecclesiastical authority than the local church. Hence, there is no denomination...only fellowships, conventions, and associations but no centralized authority. The correct title should have been "Man Sues A Baptist Church."
