Thinking 'And' instead of 'Either/Or'

The very act of city-building is to remove a culture's contact with the natural world. Humans wanted to be safer from the elements, more in control of their comfort and food-security. The bigger our cities got, the greater the remove, the greater the tendency take for granted all that comes to us only through nature. It's 'civilized' human nature to see nature as a foe instead of as a partner and companion. It's been said and is believed by many that our purpose in living lives, of experiencing...

It's about the Love.

Am I a Christian? Well, no. Not as that is understood in the modern world... or since the times when Church became the main thing, and the teachings of Jesus were toned down or sideways by people who, however sincere, had their own favorite bits and agendas. Every translation of scripture, every interpretation by the Wise and Devout has taken the essentials of Christ's message further and further from the original source. Christianity became temporal and political; it became philosophical more... Sign in to see full entry.

Grandmother Spider

Since yesterday's post, I have done some further research, and discover that the term 'medicine wheel' was generalized from the one found in Wyoming by European explorers, who called that first one by that name. A more proper name for them is Sacred Circles. All of this got me thinking and remembering... I posted about this a long time back... The post is called VISIONS AND VISITS: GRANDMOTHER SPIDER. You can find it by clicking on 'search' on the black bar above, and typing in grandmother... Sign in to see full entry.

The Medicine Wheel

I came across an image today, over on facebook, that gave my heart a strange and wonderful jolt. It was of a medicine wheel in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming. I rarely feel such a reaction, but this was unmistakable and meaningful. It was 34 years ago almost exactly, that a friend living in Calgary told me of a medicine wheel she and her partner had found quite by accident a few years before. They checked with the Canadia authorities that take an interest of such things and it was acknowledged... Sign in to see full entry.

My Universe

I have been asked what I believe in... I believe in a complex Reality. It is not a Universe, or Multiverse that can be described in simple, linear notions. I believe in God, but not a God as much like Man as the God of Western Culture is taken for. I believe in Good and Evil, in Light and Darkness, but neither without shadings of twilight, of mixture and inclusivity. I believe in Absolutes and also in Qualifiers and Conditionals: that there are spectrums and continuums of which we as humans... Sign in to see full entry.

I believe in a limitless God.

This is why I don't use He or She as God pronouns, because either one limits what God can be, and attaches our personal emotional baggage to either gender-concept. In fact, I have always believed in some kind of Supreme Divinity, though my ideas of what that is have changed over the course of my life. I left the traditional definitions and assumptions behind long ago, as I realized that they were limiting and sometimes contradictory, and often based on the mindsets of cultures long gone, from...

summarizing CPTSD

This is related to my just-previous post on this blog. I've often posted about Complex PTSD, and recommended Pete Walker's site which offers quite a lot of information about it. This one is simpler, a neat summarizing of what CPTSD is, and how it happens. Sign in to see full entry.

Lightening the Load

All my life I have had a hard time with those situations of silence, of lack of response to what I have needed, have said, have done, have asked... The need for response has made me a bit crazy at times, and if it is the long on-going situation--a lot crazy. It has killed relationships of all kinds. It has made insurmountable walls between me and my feelings, me and people I needed too much in my life. Being stone-walled in an argument has infuriated me, even tempted me to violence. For years...

Endings and beginnings...? If you can't get there from where you are--if, for instance, you don't do Facebook--It is about another moment of cosmic transformation, the ending of a galactic age, the beginning of a new one that makes some new transformative, transcendent energies accessible. Bearing in mind that this kind of thing applies more to spirits than to bodies, bodies do get the benefit of renewed spirits, ideally. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Righteousness and Hubris

There are few things that really get my hackles up enough to block or 'unfriend' someone, and that is the kind of arrogant self-righteousness that comes from those so certain that their own truth should be everyone's, that they are something special for being so right, so correct. It is the very opposite of humility. It slams shut any possibility of learning, of letting new information enter. It condemns any other ideas or feelings or interpretations than its own. It has no self-doubt in it.... Sign in to see full entry.
