    Knowledge, the thing known, and the mind which knows,
    These make the threefold starting-ground of act.
    The act, the actor, and the instrument,
    These make the threefold total of the deed.
    But knowledge, agent, act, are differenced
    By three dividing qualities. Hear now
    Which be the qualities dividing them.
    There is "true" Knowledge. Learn thou it is this:
    To see one changeless Life in all the Lives,
    And in the Separate, One Inseparable.
    There is imperfect Knowledge: that which sees
    The separate existences apart,
    And, being separated, holds them real.
    There is false Knowledge: that which blindly clings
    To one as if 'twere all, seeking no Cause,
    Deprived of light, narrow, and dull, and "dark."
    There is "right" Action: that which- being enjoined-
    Is wrought without attachment, passionlessly,
    For duty, not for love, nor hate, nor gain.
    There is "vain" Action: that which men pursue
    Aching to satisfy desires, impelled
    By sense of self, with all-absorbing stress:
    This is of Rajas- passionate and vain.
    There is "dark" Action: when one doth a thing
    Heedless of issues, heedless of the hurt
    Or wrong for others, heedless if he harm
    His own soul- 'tis of Tamas, black and bad!
    There is the "rightful" doer. He who acts
    Free from self-seeking, humble, resolute,
    Steadfast, in good or evil hap the same,
    Content to do aright- he "truly" acts.
    There is th' "impassioned" doer. He that works
    From impulse, seeking profit, rude and bold
    To overcome, unchastened; slave by turns
    Of sorrow and of joy: of Rajas he!
    And there be evil doers; loose of heart,
    Low-minded, stubborn, fraudulent, remiss,
    Dull, slow, despondent- children of the "dark."
    Hear, too, of Intellect and Steadfastness
    The threefold separation, Conqueror-Prince!
    How these are set apart by Qualities.
    Good is the Intellect which comprehends
    The coming forth and going back of life,
    What must be done, and what must not be done,

    Just like Mr. Billy Graham say, "And truthfully, even if Noah's ark is discovered one day, some people will still reject it. Why? The reason is because they don't want God in their lives. They want to run their own lives, and they know that if they took the Bible seriously, they would have to submit their lives to Christ."

    If they ever find it, it will become like the cross of Jesus--there are enough fragments of the cross in various shrines around Europe to build 20 crosses.

    of course not. the idea of the flood is one of the more ridiculous things in the bible that i could never take literally.

    why would an omnipotent god choose to wipe out life and 'start again' in that manner? being omnipotent, he could have just erased existence like a black board, leaving only what he wanted.

    if he actually caused the flood and went through that ridiculous process, then he has idle hands and a lot of time on them.

    Let's assume the story is true--the children's books should show a pitch encrusted vessel loaded with insects--they outnumber all other species combined.

    Discovery channel said they've found it. However it was called the Titanic, but they said it was big enough to take even twenty dinosaurs aboard ..... and their family.

    It seems that in the old days Cinatit meant big boat or giant ark .....

    Some believe they found the ark or remains in Turkey near but not on mount arat. I researched recently on-line but there are conflicting stories about where it could be. Some of the claims where found to be false. Other accounts seemed to have more merit but who knows. I think it is another one of those mysteries for people to argue about kind of like the shroud of torin (spelling?) The ark of the covenant would be an interesting & big find. Manny out.

    well, I can see God working in your heart becasue you said the word hell, so I know you believe in the Bible or you would not have said that word.
