Juantoo Esoteric Christianity is a very inclusive term. It is largely unknown yet I have over six hundred dollars worth of books on my specific path. Simone Weil is not technically on my path though I know it was in her. It is essentially knowledge of the human condition as described in the classic sense as Plato's Cave and the human potential from awakening to it. She understands this as well as I've ever read. I use her a lot because she is not associated with anything else so it doesn't become the usual put down of groups such as that is what Christians do or that is what Jews do. Simone is Simone and challenges you to think for yourself and above all act in accordance with your thoughts. She lived her philosophy. I am fortunate in that I know Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, and whatever else on my path all with the common concern of the human condition within ourselves and how to deal with it. None of the tensions you read on this site exists with these people since we all know we are in the cave in a mutual effort to deal with it. Actually the people that have been my greatest influences I never speak of in public so as not to create any bad associations that could be harmful to others at a later time in their life. If people cannot take Simone's honesty and depth without being insulted, they could not take what has interested me since it doesn't flatter the ego. I don't know much of these Indian legends you refer to but I do have a great respect for their efforts. Christianity asserts the importance of "thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." This means respecting the level of earth within our being as well as the planet earth which the ideals of Indian culture does at a high level. I have a friend I know from another site who has Hindu interests and lives in rural Illinois. She knows the local Indians who regard her as the "wise woman." If you have a serious interest in Indian spirituality, I'll invite her to join us in a discussion on this topic and you two can lead. But again, with someone like this we have to be respectful and without the fashionable ridicule even though it may seem new. Another friend who I lost track of recently worked in a Catholic mission on an Indian reservation in Washington State. She told me how bitter many of the elders were against the whites. Once an elder lost his son to alcoholism which was rampant in the community and he was praying in his own way in the mission. She stood in the back knowing how he felt towards whites. Finally he motioned to her to join him since he said she was without color. Are we capable of dealing with our prejudice in trying times? How can we when so caught up in superficiality?
