Brian,I also see meditation as the main point.
One can inspire eachother at times and in places,but it is entirely a personal treasure to letting go of believes, dogma's etc,because that we can't know.
Meditation is the stillpoint in the middle of wherever..

"To put this insight into another way, He leads us by means of sacred experiences to the experience of emptiness."

----What would be an example of, "being lead by means of a sacred experience?" Did Keating give examples? If not, I wonder, if there is an opportunity for some misinterpretation here.

Roger - responding to a blog post about meditation - that would be an example of being lead by means of a sacred experience.

"[T]here is an opportunity for some misinterpretation here": "lead" is not the same as "led."

"He leads us by means of sacred experiences to the experience of emptiness."

---Does GOD really want to lead us to the experience of emptiness? Edward, tell me why he needs to do this. I need my experience to be sacred and divine.
