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.

Seeds and Siblings

I believe in 'seed energies.' Every colonial nation began with its own particular energy: The US, with the Puritans; Canada with a bunch of death-defying missionaries and French rogues; the lands to the south with Spanish conquistadors seeking gold at any cost, and collecting souls into the horrors of the medieval Inquistion-dominated Catholic church. Australia... the 'refuse' of the British Isles, and the discarded politicians sent to keep them in line with British traditions, laws, and rules.... Sign in to see full entry.

Making a shift

My 'child' is unbearably sad today. Body-loneliness: The hunger for physical contact, for physical connection; the cure for the exhaustion of sadness when even hope seems naive and futile. I think today is going to be about finding treatments for this condition other than cynicism and apathy. I'm too old to be a sincere cynic, and apathy is just so boring. Self-pity isn't worth the embarrassment when one realizes how much worse some people have it, who still go on doggedly pursuing life. There... Sign in to see full entry.

Maybe...

It's a spiritual/psychic/psychological spectrum, a range of vibrations: High Energy: Neutrality: being observant without being judgemental Higher Energy: Amusement: being interested, focusing on things with acceptance and appreciation Highest Energy: Love, unconditional Be on the Spectrum!

Serenity

Compassion for suffering; Patience for ignorance; Generosity for neediness; Amusement and Forgiveness rather than resistance or shame for mistakes and fumbles and flaws... And I'm not talking about just for others, for ourselves, too. Sign in to see full entry.

God talk, again

I was watching reruns of THE WEST WING, a season of seeking nomination and election to the Presidency. The lobbyists for the Conservative Evangelical Right was trying to manipulate one of the hopefuls into making statements and taking stands on their particular issues. Throughout, they never spoke of God without the basic assumption that everyone knows what God is. Of course this isn't true. We all have our own ideas and beliefs about what God is, who God is. Most of these were acquired in... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't forget...!

I have read the Bible through--probably went very quickly over the begats--more than once, and while I don't recall it by chapters and verses, I have looked for the history, for the teachings, for the variety of voices, and most especially for the thread that runs through from beginning to end. With all its contradictions, with all the many voices, the stories and biographies, with all the teachings, all the rules and laws about living properly, there is one consistant message: Don't forget you...

Redemption is always possible.

You can sell your soul, or, rather, believe you have sold it, but consider that souls are not negotiable, only beliefs: A soul can be recovered by choosing to change your deal with whatever devil lured you into the belief that anyone but you can have charge of your soul. That's what the gift of free will means. Sign in to see full entry.
