Back again Zyril. I see you're flogging a different dead horse.

Have fun.

Imagine, there was no Jesus.

Imagine there was no Jesus, just the teachings of some mad crazy person.

Now come up with how these teachings relate to the universe, and how they relate to Aikido?

When you get your 10,000 page treatise published ... save one for me.

I take back my original post. Having wasted several hours perusing your site, I realise it's the same dead horse, just with a different coat.

Have fun.

Find the scientific reasons to believe in your faith, how men have manipulated the doctrines to their own purposes, and with universal truths, we return to the question the universe being god, not the man made deitys of our ancestors.

Find the truths that apply to your lessons of today, and then quoting from scripture or ancient texts are enjoyable, but not absolute guides.

Of course, people ride dead horses all the time, but that would be a merry go round, wouldn't it?

Wow, such intolerance from poeple who claim to be so open minded and enlightened by the aiki philosophy.

Sorry Michael. I've never claimed to be open minded or enlightened on these forums. However I've read the stuff peddled by this Zyril Zayhren (he claims he's an alien sent to enlighten us BTW) and in my considered opinion it's rubbish. What really burns me is that he expects level headed adults to buy this rubbish, furthermore he expects the Aikido community to be gullible enough to swallow his line. If you wish, follow the link to his site/s and see for yourself.

Have fun.

Only expect people to let others make up their own minds as to what is valuable and what is rubbish. Not for you - great!

I saw it but I did not have the patience to read through the entire website, I have to agree it was a bit odd.

I agree it is a bit odd. In the same way that everest is a bit high and concorde is a bit fast.

Have fun.

What it has to be stated is that we are little people compared with great teachings.

Said it: WE ARE ARE LITTLE PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THOSE GREAT TEACHINGS.

Im Buddist,

Talking It has TV reviews!

Quote:
TV SERIES: Married with Children

This is the epitome of the modern human consciousness. This is the typical example of the average working man and his family - in a nutshell. It shows all the primative thoughts, feelings, and automatic reactions of the modern day human mind. Not much creativity, although they do try, just automates. The mind leading them around like the puppeteer moving the marrionette.
The link also has movie reviews.

Heaven is right where you are standing, and that is exactly the place to train-

Anytime a religion is motivated by monetary renumeration, such as professional hierarchy of priests, bishops, and great and greater leadership, it does become a pyramid scheme of money glorifying the greatness of ones ticket to heaven. We, as human beings have this incredible flaw of physical glorification to buy us entrance to higher plane of existence.

Terrible way to be, but each of our religious clubs deign they are the chosen of some higher power. If it creates peace, promotes the common good, and isn't forced upon the masses, I say go for it, be happy.

But if it is the exclusion of any and all outside the doctrine, then I say, eat dirt and die.

Aikido is not just the way to get along with everyliving thing, but it also contains the means of death when there is no possible way to create harmony other than enforcing what is right with a death.

Jesus? Well, by todays standards he would need to show his passport for the years he left his family and traveled. Show me how his teaching were not the modification of Buddhism and I will show you how they were.

Then I will show you how the Christian religion was changed by the hierarchy through the years. Humanity is a bitch on wheels trying to be a saint. Aikido is another key to the puzzle of life. Turn the key and see what is behind the door or Aikido?

Nice post Bruce, Can't say for sure that Jesus' teaching were modified Buddhism, but I do find many similarities, infact my practice of buddhism as shown me just how rich the teachings he had are. The Ironic thing is move supposed move away from Christianity has actually brought me closer to the teaching of Jesus!

On another note, I am confused on why some of you are upset with Zyril? How does what he says impact you in anyway?

Frankly I find it interesting to see what another persons thoughts are, I always learn something, even if I may not agree with the underlying philosophy or dogma attached to it!

I am not upset at Zyril per se. However I do take exception to people coming on to an Aikido forum and peddling their goods, especially if they think we're as flakey as them and will swallow a line like Zyril the alien is punting. My religious beliefs (or lack of them)are a matter of record on these forums. If you feel that life just isn't enough without buying a book on the subliminal messages in star trek you have my pity.

Have fun.

My philosophy is that everyone is selling something even if it is their ideas.

Jim, how does what he is posting affect you?

Sounds somewhat judgemental on your part. Heck he has only posted 10 times since Feb 2002.

On these forums I am selling nothing unlike Zyril the alien. I make my living by selling. Zyril the alien does not actually impinge upon my life other than by expecting that we, as Aikidoka, should be interested in his insane ramblings. It is unfortunate that there are people that may actually buy the crap that he peddles, however there are stupid people as normal ones.

Have fun
