Hi Ms Henderson,

I just wanted to clarify/shed some more light on this issue:

Quote:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heraclitus

This, along with his cryptic utterance that "all entities come to be in accordance with this Logos" (literally, "word", "reason", or "account") has been the subject of numerous interpretations.

[...]

The meaning of Logos also is subject to interpretation: "word", "account", "principle", "plan", "formula", "measure", "proportion", "reckoning."[31]

[...]


The later Stoics understood it as "the account which governs everything,"[34] and Hippolytus, in the 3rd century CE, identified it as meaning the Christian Word of God.[35]
Quote:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logos

The Stoic philosophers identified the term with the divine animating principle pervading the Universe. ... The Gospel of John identifies the Logos, through which all things are made, as divine (theos),[8] and further identifies Jesus Christ as the incarnate Logos
Quote:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tao

In Chinese translations of the New Testament, λόγος (logos) is translated with the Chinese word dao (道) (e.g. John 1:1), indicating that the translators considered the concept of Tao to be somewhat equivalent to logos in Greek philosophy.

[...]

Tao or Dao (English pronunciation: /daʊ/, DOW; from Chinese: 道; pinyin: About this sound Dào (help·info)) is a Chinese word signifying 'way', 'path', 'route', 'road', 'choose', 'key' or sometimes more loosely 'doctrine', 'principle' or 'holistic science' [1] . Within the context of traditional Chinese philosophy and religion, the Tao is the intuitive knowing of "life" that cannot be grasped full-heartedly as just a concept but is known nonetheless through actual living experience of one's everyday being.

[...]

In all its uses, the Tao is considered to have ineffable qualities that prevent it from being defined or expressed in words. It can, however, be known or experienced, and its principles (which can be discerned by observing Nature) can be followed or practiced.
Today we might update the terminology as "Larger Consciousness System"/"Absolute Unbounded Manifold" reality .


People like Eckhart Tolle offer the same message without as much scientific terminology:

Eckhart Tolle - What do you believe in?

Eckhart Tolle - Is there a consciousness to the universe?

BTW I personally don't connect to some of Tom Campbell's hopeful outlandish ideas, like remote viewing or healing or out of body experiences (aside from vivid dreaming), although, I like to be a hopeful person as well.

I've been referencing men only. This woman, although I find her too loose in terms of terminology and application of ideas (Abraham Hicks - interestingly she renamed herself with a male name lol) leads a new age movement, providing a motherly loving positivity:


You'll notice I've referenced White people only.
