If one thinks that he can kill one (the Soul), and if the other thinks that He (his Soul) can be killed both of them do not know because neither the Soul can kill or get killed. 4. The Self that is subtler than the subtlest and greater than the greatest is located in the heart of all. One who is free from desire sees the glory of the Self through tranquility of his mind and senses and he gets freed from all sorrows and grief. 5.
Furthermore, God’s energies provide creative nourishment for all beings and extend the healing power of grace. According to Palmas, we as human beings are not required to actively seek out these energies. Rather, these energies (which constitute the actual presence of God) tend to find each individual regardless of whether or not they are actively seeking them. As I spent extensive time pondering Palmas’ idea of divine experience through God’s energies rather than His essence, I found myself challenged by the ostensible abstractness and ambiguity of this teaching. Although I understand the core of Palmas’ argument, I struggle to accept his assertion that the energies of God do not have to be actively pursued.
Bonhoeffer was willing to pay the price if it meant rejecting those ideas. 2. Explain the difference between “free grace” and “cheap grace.” “Free grace,” as its most commonly refereed to, is the real grace of God. All the wonderful things he does for us, coming with only the cost of repentance, discipline, and contrition. Though they are “costs,” all of these things aren't bad, and they all help you build Godly character traits.

Their goal is to give a true life orientation, to point the way to the center of life experience. Daoism and Confucianism are different manifestations of the same concept. Daoism is prone to mysticism and in its original form defended the idea of passivity, "inaction" and rest, withdrawal from society and reunification with nature. Its core thought is that if a person folds his arms and does not violate the natural course of life, everything will be fine. Confucianism is closer to reality.
The wax argument is straightforward and can appeal even to the most ordinary person. However, there is a weakness in this as the argument is entirely descriptive. Descartes only states the existence of a part of the brain that enables a person to perceive things. This part is not specified either in name or in a number of the parts of the mind that are responsible for this ability. Descartes explains that the sheer human senses cannot conceive the changes through which the wax goes through.
To have a goal, or a set of goals in one’s mind is of concern in Tillich’s mind. Outside itself, the concern must not have any goods to make this “ultimate”. God alone can be the ultimate desire of the human soul because God alone is permanent and absolute according to St. Augustine. Temporary and changing are contracted by the objects of creation. Therefore, essences are identical to God’s existence.
The Daodejing, essentially a guide for Prince’s, examines the principle of the Tao, a formless entity that cannot be seen, heard, or felt. The sages are able to captivate this principle, they are modest beings who are eager to assuage any harm that may confront them. They cherish everyone and not just those that prove themselves high in power and attributes, having faith in the ability of the minority. In today’s world there are also forms of sages, warm hearted people who bring good faith to everyone, acting as humble leaders even to those that are misfortunate in their physical development.

But not a creativity that comes to everyone. It only comes to certain people, to people who are, let’s say, geniuses. The “eureka” view is like an “aha” moment. It’s like a light bulb goes off and you suddenly remembered something or discovered something. But that eureka view is only in those who are genius, the rest of the normal people like us have to stand by the side and just stare in awe.
Therefore it is clear that, as the soul needs only the word of God for its life and righteousness, so it is justified by faith alone and not any works; for if it could be justified by anything else, it would not need the word, and consequently it would not need faith.” In summary of these points, people need to be mindful of their surroundings and how they live their lifestyles. People will always be liars and hypocrites so it would advisable to choose the right path to be on. Martin Luther has taught as that not everyone is as they seem; we may automatically think some people are unrighteous because they live their life immorally, but they are rather the ones with pure hearts, unlike the saintly people who perform sinful acts behind closed
