The Way of the Soul
DESCRIPTION: The twelfth of thirteen pages on Paths (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur),
this page is the second of three which together comprise a list of links to on-line resources for the study and practice of religion at its highest, as man's encounter with God -- in myth, in theology, and in action:
this page is a list of links to on-line resources for the study and practice of Christianity and Islam;
the preceding page contains links to resources in religion in general (including myth and mythology);
the page following contains links to resources in religious studies (history of religion, philosophy of religion) and theology, and to resources in ecumenism and interfaith dialogue.
The other coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to resources dealing with the dark side of faith, the pathology of belief and persuasion (Hate, Anger, Intolerance, and Deceit).
KEYWORDS: belief; religion; sacred; holy; myth; mythology; scripture; Bible; Christianity; Koran; Islam; God; faith; soul; salvation
The courage to be is rooted in the God who appears when God has disappeared in the anxiety of doubt.
This is the paradox of faith: it is the certainty of the uncertain.

I give you a new commandment: love one another; as I have loved you, so you are to love one another.
Jesus of Nazareth (John 13:34, New English Bible)
The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.
C. S. Lewis
