Burners who don't go to Burning Man?

Eric's sig line is exactly the truth.
I've been a burner a really long time, and there's NOTHING spiritual about it. It's a party and it's a camping trip and it's a shitload of work and money. I'm not a new ager or hippy or spiritual type in any way shape or form and very few of my many Burner friends are either. We do know how to build shit and we do have fun.
Most of them have been burners a really long time too.
Most burners don't really give anything. Especially in the last ten years or so.
Those Principles were written long after Burning Man was already an established thing.
Hell, back in '99-'00-ish Black Rock City was commonly called "Bartertown". Almost no one gave anything away, you had to TRADE.
Principles my ass, open your eyes. The Org itself doesn't follow all those so-called Principles.

Starry eyed? Yup... all our eyes are made of out billion year old stardust... study some astrophysics. :p

Eric's sig is an opinion, not the truth... my opinion differs...

Again... everything we do is spiritual... from brushing your teeth, to making babies... God is always with us, the Holy Spirit... You can disagree... But again, study astrophysics... we're all literally ~13.7 billion years old, there ain't no end to this infinite Universe... we are the direct manifestation of the eternal Loving God...

Yeah, everything we do is the Lord's work... and I know it takes money to get there but when we get on that Playa, money ain't cool... unless you need coffee or ice apparently lolz

Yeah, most people and Burners don't give anything away for free... but some people will give the shirt off their back to help their brothers. Some people would sacrifice their life to save another's... that's the beauty of Gifting.

Again, those Principles existed long before the Burn and will long after... seriously, you think no one had ever thought or acted in such ways before Burning Man? lolz

Thank God it's not called Bartertown anymore, that's Commodification, putting a value on what you do with the desire to get something from someone else. When I tell virgins money and financial transactions are frowned upon on the Playa, they ask if we barter... I say No, people just give things away for free and demand nothing in return... that has made everyone of those virgins beam with a smile.

Go back to Bartertown if you want... that's called the Default World.

Burning Man is the most spiritual place I've ever been and all my Burner friends feel the same way.

There is nothing but God... and the Burn is his favorite party.

We're all God's wackos! No matter how ignorant y'all pretend to be...

"In the beginning... God said let there be light... "

Ever seen it? :P

Which means sound/music came first... ever heard it? lolz

But the Truth is... light and sound cannot scientifically be proven to exist... yet we all know they are real. This is how God rolls.

God's children don't need help. The Truth is on our side... and God's patience for your return Home is unshakable. Don't be afraid of the (en)light(enment) of Divine gnosis.

And Captain... kind of an ironic user name for someone with little Faith. ;)

PS- I've done a shit ton of drugs, a true American Psychonaut lolz... getting high(er) means getting closer to God for me. Mushroom Monday is one of my Radical Rituals on the Playa. :D

In this thread, we're here to discuss and share all the Spiritual and philosophical understandings about our experience in this Life... Hopefully we all consider Love, compassion and mercy to be the primary intentions behind our posts... so that we can encourage and make each others' lives better.

We can discuss God, religion, philosophy, science or whatever inspires beauty and contentment in your Life.

This thread is about Love! Share it...

I'll kick things off with one of my favorite philosophical questions ever...

How did matter go from not alive to alive?

Well, At least someone gets it.. only 2 and a half minutes off tho... the Truth is when God said so.
:wink:

Life and death are illusions... how is it even remotely possible for someone to say, "I'm dead."? :lol:

Where is yesterday? Where is tomorrow? Is there a fence at the end of the Universe?

So, how can anyone NOT realize we are the direct/Immediate manifestation of an infinite being?

If it's officially my thread now can't I change the title?

Who is doing this? Sham? Can we change the title please?

God, man's invention to give credit or blame to things that have no answer, or doesn't understand.

But then again gAWD does pour a nice cold beer, on the dusty desert that we love to camp on.

I find it an odd phenomenon that there are so many houses of worship--all denominations, that are seeing their numbers dwindle. Churches and synagogues are consolidating and the real estate is being sold off. My guess is that people have become disenchanted and given up on supporting spiritual, religious organizations. I know this has been going on for quite a few years, but can we blame the internet for the rapid decrease?
Generations ago, everyone belonged to either a civic group and/or a house of worship. Now, both are falling by the wayside.

I think you got it backwards...

Man is God's invention(manifestation) in order to pour a nice cold beer on that Playa we Love so much. God is participating... living thru us!

Love is a synonym for God... something we all know is real but can't prove.

If we chose not to Love or be content, then there is nowhere to point the finger but ourselves... which yeah, make it's God's/our decision. :)

I don't really care much about the numbers or wealth of the churches/traditions...

God/The Universe is manifest in so many myriad of forms it's fruitless to count them or put a value on them. We're priceless! Our/God's Love is infinite!

Can you please change the name of this thread to Spirituality & Philosophy? I didn't choose this title.

Repurposing churches is well advanced in Europe. I'm seeing more DIY spiritualism sampled into a custom mix by each individual. They express that spiritualism by pronouncements on social media.
