No, no forgive me; I was thinking out loud, not rebuking anyone’s belief or statements here. Just adding my thoughts….
I believe in God and Jesus…but having a problem of late with the Bible’s content
Regarding what may have been left out, and what is there now.
I don’t believe God intended women to be a slaves…but equal, yet, when you look at ancient history…and even modern day countries…simply have a problem with understanding we are equal. Now don’t misunderstand, I love to have the door opened for me…as I would hold it open for someone as a suggestion of care.
A lot of my other statements were meant to be in lieu of the brainwashing we’ve been subjected to for years and years.
If we are as God himself, then, the musings of soul, mind and nature, provide many answers. I question divine intervention…not that He doesn’t intervene
But I believe he gifts us life, and it’s our choice to do with it what we like.
Also believe that God does not create disease…man does…in all the chemicals we’ve been using and testing, which we ingest…
Yes, we have become a very negative society, which is free will. And are corrupted by gossip, pride, accepting immoral beliefs and crimes as a way of things….all these soap operas, and real TV shows are absolutely insulting to our integrity.
We’ve become a society of materialism, commercialism and our only thoughts of success are in the material…and yes, society does not encourage love…kindness…compassion….mature thinking….it teaches, fashion, and if you look beautiful on the outside, then you have everything, not to mention open sex, what ever happened to the concept….making love?
My statement of (think before you make decisions should have been before “we” make decisions; sorry I get carried away…)
This meaning, we have become a world society who no longer thinks about the long term effects our decisions have on others or how they hurt others. In our desires for fortune and fame, immediate gratification…we’re forgetting about love for others…giving love as well as receiving. We’re loosing something very sacred and pure to the human soul….the great passion of togetherness. That is success…riches…having nothing to do with material. Ask our youth of today, what love is? Ask them what courtesy is? They don’t know? And it’s not their fault, it’s ours.
We’re loosing any adherences to nobleness, compassion and the ability to stand against what is wrong, we deny the positive forces and accept the negative…and when one person works against what others are accomplishing, it corrodes the entire body, neighborhoods, towns, cities, world. It’s a definite ripple effect…
Happiness is what each individual deems as success…and I add here, who am I to tell anyone what they’re happiness is or should be?
I meant the body can die, but the soul will never be caged. The soul lives, and as there is beginning and end in everything, so to, will come our end eventually…and when that time comes is when we look back and discover, what did we do and accomplish, and I don’t believe it will have anything to do with how many properties one owns, or how many cars…or trendy cloths…but eventually the soul will flourish and realize the importance of love. Not physical love…but something much deeper.
The pull of positive energy is there as well as the negative, but yes, I believe the positive will ultimately win…it is the God source…the positive energy.
And yes, at face value one might look at many situations in the world and wonder if positive is winning….we should wake up and take a look. We’re walking around asleep, and desensitized to what is reality and what is fiction. (Brainwashed)
As far as choice…again, whatever you believe it to be…but if we would turn this whole thing around and turn away from negativity, and not fear standing up and saying this is WRONG and unacceptable commercialism, behavior, etc…virtue might begin to solidify into our modern concepts….
I think, we use a very small part of our brains…and we should and could be much further along.
Our reality is whatever they (that in control) want us to believe.
In my opinion, another option of free will would be this…i.e. If everyone could drop their political party without feeling like they were defying their parents…forget about democrats and republicans and vote for the man, not the party? I also believe we should have two or three other parties which would force more honest decisions…and less childish bashings of a person’s character.
The problems facing our world are not so difficult…but we’ve become a divided world of people who actually believe we can dictate what another should believe…and believe it or not, most of it comes from religion, our parents, television and our government. Whenever your government becomes immoral and corrupt, so to will its people. And what better way to control others then by fear…propaganda…we’re all guilty, we’re all members of one body, no matter the color of your skin, race or religion, we all bleed the same.
There is a lot of good, and a lot of wonderful people in this world…and what I fear is…loosing them and their beliefs and any connection to divinity while human.
I hope I’ve cleared things a little, and not offended anyone, I tend to be a very passionate talker about these subjects and it’s not always a good thing…smile
As I mean no insult to anyone…nor am I writing or talking to anyone directly by saying “you”. When I should type we…it is we in my mind, but I forget, others cannot read my mind…smiles.
I’ve been struggling with a lot of issues lately…so, please believe and understand when I say, what I write, is definitely not written in stone, as I have a lot to learn and would welcome anyone’s ides
When we act out our everyday schedules, we’re doing what “they” have told us we should do…becoming so wrapped up in material gain…forgetting about what we’re really supposed to be doing…and they have us right where they want us.
Free Will of the physical can be and might be someday taken away, but the hope is, that the free will of the spirit can never be broken. That is what I believe?
