Dear friends,

I live in Bristol, England, and currently work in Occupational Therapy at my local hospital.

I have been reading the forums for several years, but only recently joined and started posting.

I was a long-standing member of The Order of Dionysius and Paul (a Mystery School in the Western Esoteric Tradition) in Bristol, but left just over seven years ago to break free from the hierarchy and dogma, to discover a deeper Truth from a more personal perspective. I then spent five years living in Glastonbury working at the beautiful Chalice Well Gardens, before returning back to Bristol two years ago.

My spiritual inclination over the last two years has been inspired by the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, especially from the Bon tradition and the practice of Lojong.

I am very much looking forward to a continued exchange of stories, ideas, teachings and humour that this beautiful forum and the people that make it so provide.

Love and blessings to all,

Saul

Greetings, Saul! You have already been on a spiritual journey - and I'm sure you will find kindred spirits here.

BTW I did a phrase-specific search (i.e. in speech marks) for the Order of Dionysius and Paul - and this thread came up first of three! A non-specific search didn't bring up much, except for a site by Allan Armstrong.

Hi LPCF,

Allan Armstrong is the Prior of the Order of Dionysius & Paul. The ODP is a Religious Order dedicated to the contemplative life and the study of Comparative Religion, Mythology and Symbolism.

Very little is written on or about the ODP because it's a Mystery School. However, it's not a secret organisation, just private!

I hope that clarifies.

Welcome Saul. I just read your post about Matter vs Non-Matter and found it extremely interesting. Did you ever experience receiving a 'gift' before ?

Hi Barry, and thank you for your interest!

I've not recieved a 'gift' in in this manner before. On reflection, I think my question to Bob was really about Matter vs. Spirit, which we all know are One and the same thing! A part of me believes that when one recieves a gift from the Spirit it is often an outward sign of an inward grace that is bestowed upon the soul. It will be interesting to see how Bob answers the questions.

Once Bob has answered I will open the question up as a thread for all to respond to, as I'm sure there will be several people on this forum whom have vuluable experiences they to may wish to share.

Blessings,

Saul
