    Hi There!

    Hello Everyone. I’m new to this Forum.

    Can best describe my Faith / Philosophy as Secular.

    Here’s a flavour of me:

    Spiritual Influences include:
    Krishnamurti
    Chan
    Daoism
    Zen (Both Schools, but particularly Rinzai)
    Vipassana
    Eckhart Tolle
    Robert Wright
    Alan Watts

    Though & Thinking Influences:
    Educationists such as Edward De Bono (inventor of ‘Lateral Thinking’ and numerous Thinking Books & Courses)
    Tony Buzan (of ‘Use Your Head’ fame, Teacher of Learning Skill Techniques) and a few others besides.

    Science & Philosophy Influences
    Cosmology; Quantum Mechanics; Physics; Philosophy
    Marcus Du Sautoy, Carlo Revolli, David Tong (Physicist’s Youtube Channel)

    Other Interests
    Music: Jazz, Rock, Blues, Folk, Classical, Movie Scores
    20th / 21st Century Music Hero’s: Bob Dylan, Tom Waites, Jethro Tull, Ian Dury, Stones, Levellers, Miles Davis, Amy Winehouse

    I don’t believe in an afterlife or rebirth. I do, however, believe in a Divine Source, Power, Creator - which I call God - but as something more akin to (though NOT ‘literally’) the ‘Force’ in Stars Wars, rather than any God as defined by any traditional religion. I’m devoid of any opinions, views or theories whatsoever, as to the nature or agenda of the Divine Source.

    My Favourive Buddhist Notion is: Don’t Know Mind (i.e. Never Sure, Never Knowing, always Learning)

    Look forward to chatting to you
