Temple Of The Lost Civilization


Click on photo to enlarge
Buddha meditates in front of our Lost Civilization pagoda.
But no, we're not Buddhist, or Christian, Muslim, Hindu or Wiccan.
Nor are we agnostic or atheist.
We believe in nature, in earth and solar systems, in the sun, the stars and the cosmos.
We are made of that, and something of us will always be part of it.
We also believe in life, everlasting life, though not as individual human beings.
Our atoms and molecules are infinitely part of the profound beauty of nature, and we are elemental components of the living evolution of all existence, like everything that came before us.
We're mammals, homo-sapiens just recently walking upright, and don't feel that our young self-aggrandizing species yet knows enough to define or name what the whole of IT is.
Some might call it God or the Holy Spirit, but we simply know it as the thing we are one with forever.

Oh boy! We could have some discussion on this one! Now where did I put that gallon of wine? Get the fire pit going!

Whollyman-
I'm sure we could and I'm betting it would be fun too!

Nice collection of insulators. Do you think we can book "compost" for the next meeting of "The Church of the Natural Way" held at AL's only clothing optional camp, run by the former director of the B'ham zoo. Polka dot skirts are optional but kazoos and other musical instruments are encouraged. Betty

Betty-

"The Church Of The Natural Way".
Boy that has a nice ring to it!

Sounds like a great get-together to us!

They don't happen to have a hot spring or skinny dipping pools there do they?

Sounds like a perfect event for our 'Compost' band.

Just a concrete pool for skinny dipping only, a volleyball net and open air showers. They do have a rednecked in AL band, however, and a stage for theatre productions. Glad we didn't shock you. Didn't want to post this on public forum as I fear some compost band members might not approve. I first took Tim on his 50th birthday. He has been friends with the owner for years, leading cave expeditions for the zoo. Betty

No shock here Betty.
We're old hippies who sometimes hang out at secluded hot springs where birthday suits are the norm.
At this stage in life though I think maybe it should be called fatdipping:)

I have been struggling with religion, actually my lack of, for many years. Atheist just didn't fit, and agnostic didn't sound right either. Reading your post gave me a much-needed slap in the head. I don't need a label for what I believe in (or don't believe). I can just BE.

I've only started reading the posts on your site, but am very happy to have stumbled upon it!

With a hippie in my head, I am, Lu C.
