BEAUTY – AWE AND TERROR OF ISLAMIC MOSQUES

The Bhakti purported in the Works does not mean that type of “fighting” devotion I see as the Mars force (standing alone as religious activity with no good sense). That sentiment fights with closed mind (and eyes as well) about its faith and does not care to reason with anyone. Yet, it feels everyone should like what it demands they like, and do what it insists they do, religiously.


Bhakti devotion (yoga) leads to liberation from “the fight” except for “the good fight of faith.” I relate that love to Mercury (the Wisdom nature of devotion). Therefore, it is ever faithful to be unsullied in feelings and emotionalism that defies Spiritual reason, which is beyond intellectual reasoning (yet, of course, it is in company with Spiritual Reason).

About marymhm

I'm a 64-year-old mother of two daughters (my older daughter is deceased), four grandsons, and three great-granddaughters. I'm a born-again Christian Theosophist and don't apologize for being a Spiritual rather than a fanatically religious person, which I am not. There is a difference and it is very evident in some peoples' lives. I love walking, music, words, and dance. When I was a very young girl, I knew I was not of this world because I was told I wasn't, and the things I do today I was told I would do them. I work toward them every day. I will soon be a college graduate in Sociology, and if I live long enough I will finish my intended Master's program in Social Psychology, and after that, my doctorate in Divinity, which was the first impetus. But being divinely guided I must finish the preparatory assignments given me from on High. My philosophy? God is Love. Love is not all God does but that is all he is in essence. Amen.
