Bucky Fuller is credited for popularizing a lot of memes, some of which developed into full-fledged physical artifacts, such as the geodesic domes, which blossomed everywhere in architecture, most impressively on the industrial scene, but also in the form of do-it-yourself affordable shelter solutions. 

However "the industry industry missed" (Archibald MacLeish) is still…

Autobiographical Snippet

Both my parents were convinced Friends, thanks to deep discussions they'd been having with their peers at a YWCA closely associated with the University of Washington, where they met.  Jack was a Seattle native whereas Carol was a precocious kid at Garfield High, her dad an itinerant Linotype operator.

Dad was having conscientious objections to the university's compulsory ROTC gun training. Mom would later join the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). All that…

Living in the intuitive presence of Christ during persecution by the agents and agencies of the reflective nature.

The world is ruled by the faculty of the reflective nature. Human relations are guided and informed by and through the agency of political, religious, educational, commercial, industrial, and economic institutions and the individual agents of those institutions. Those who have been drawn outside the reflective nature and into the direct rule of the spirit of Christ in the conscience, often find that the agencies and agents of the reflective nature will seek to force those in the intuitive…

Drawn outside the reflective nature to guide human relations.

There are people who testify to the witness of how the Holy Spirit leads them to minister (guide and inform human relations) to others through the faculty of the reflective nature; manifested in their reflecting upon other people and circumstances through political and religious intellectual constructs. I am drawn into a different way.

Through the power and presence of the spirit of Jesus Christ in my conscience  and…

QuakerQuaker's Sweet Sixteen!

Hi QuakerQuakers,

When the idea for QuakerQuaker started bubbling up back in the summer of 2005, it was seen as a place for Quakers from across the branches of Friends to come together with curious seekers and Quaker-adjacent spiritual folks to talk about what "primitive Christianity" might look like today. The phrase was lifted from William Penn—you might think of it as his elevator pitch, or summary of what the Quaker movement was trying to do. Blogging was in its golden age and a…

Established in the living and continuous presence of Jesus Christ

We live in social contexts (the world over) wherein human relations are guided, informed, and governed by the reflective nature through the agency of political, religious, educational, and economic institutional structures and the individual agents of those institutions. There is a different way wherein human relations are guided through the agency of the direct and continous experience of the spirit of Jesus Christ in the conscience and consciousness. In this indwelling experience, people are… Continue

Christian Phariseeism; What Does It Look Like?

Pastor J.D. Greaer, who just stepped down as the presiding officer of the Southern Baptist Convention, answered the question of what Christian Phariseeism looks like;' to wit, "It happens when we take a gospel nonessential like a cultural or stylistic preference … or our political calculus and we give it divine weight".

How do Friends measure up against this query?

The power of the inshining presence of Jesus Christ is eternal consciousness.

The inshining spirit of Jesus Christ has replaced and is replacing the reflective process as guide to inform my human relationships through the agency of awareness of the intensity of the Spirit's presence in a given interaction or circumstance. This agency or faculty of awareness is become and is becoming the foundation of my conscience and consciousness in matters of human relations.
