I FOUND THIS ON A MEMBERS WALL ( efratimike ) . I FOUND IT VERY INTERESTING .
Words of wisdom !
Last 6 month i wasnt able for 1 day to let my soul flow or express itself, which was painfull, so i decided to post an article by Rob brenzy , He has a weekly Horoscope in a newspaper called -The Village Voice, in NY , ( website too)
So ty Rob for being my Voice
The fundamentalist takes everything way too seriously and way too
personally and way too literally. He divides the world into two camps,
those who agree with him and those who don't. There is only one right
way to interpret the world, and a million wrong ways. Correct belief is the
To the fundamentalist, the liberated imagination is a sinful taboo. He not
only enslaves his own imagination to his ideology, but wants to enslave
our imaginations, too.
And who are the fundamentalists? Let's not remain under the delusion
that they are only the usual suspects -- the religious fanatics of Islam and
Christianity and Judaism and Hinduism.
There are many other kinds of fundamentalists, and some of them have
gotten away with practicing their tragic magic in a stealth mode. Among
the most successful are those who believe in what Robert Anton Wilson
calls fundamentalist materialism. This is the faith-based dogma that
swears physical matter is the only reality and that nothing exists unless it
can be detected by our five senses or by technologies that humans have
Life has no transcendent meaning or purpose, the fundamentalist
materialists proclaim. There is no such thing as a divine intelligence. The
universe is a dumb accidental machine that grinds on endlessly out of
I see spread out before me in every direction a staggeringly sublime
miracle lovingly crafted by a supernal consciousness that oversees the
evolution of 500 billion galaxies, yet is also available as an intimate
companion and daily advisor to every one of us. But to the fundamentalist
materialists, my perceptions are indisputably wrong and idiotic.
Many other varieties of fundamentalism thrive and propagate. Every
ideology, even some of the ones I like, has its share of true believers --
fanatics who judge all other ideologies as inferior, flawed, and foolish.
I know astrologers who insist there's only one way to do astrology right. I
know Buddhists who adamantly decree that the inherent nature of life on
Earth is suffering.
I know progressive activists who sincerely believe that every single
Republican is either stupid or evil or both. I know college administrators
who would excommunicate any psychology professor who dared to
discuss the teachings of Carl Jung, who was in my opinion one of the
greatest minds of the 20th century. I know pagans who refuse to
consider any other version of Jesus Christ beyond the sick parody the
Christian right has fabricated.
None of the true believers like to hear that there are at least three sides
to every story. They don't want to consider the hypothesis that everyone
has a piece of the truth.
And here's the really bad news: We all have our own share of the
fundamentalist virus. Each of us is fanatical, rigid, and intolerant about
products of the imagination that we don't like. We wish that certain
people would not imagine the things they do, and we allow ourselves to
beam hateful, war-like thoughts in their direction.
We even wage war against our own imaginations, commanding ourselves,
sometimes half-consciously, to ignore possibilities that don't fit into our
neatly_constructed theories. Each of us sets aside certain precious beliefs
and symbols that we give ourselves permission to take very seriously and
personally and literally.
Our fundamentalism, yours and mine, may not be as dangerous to the
collective welfare as, say, the fundamentalism of Islamic terrorists and
right-wing Christian politicians. It may not be as destructive as that of the
CEOs who worship financial profit as the supreme measure of value, and
the scientists who ignore and deny every mystery that can't be
measured, and the journalists, filmmakers, novelists, musicians, and
pundits who relentlessly generate rotten visions of the human condition.
But still: We are all infected, you and I. We are fueling the war against the
imagination. What's your version of the virus?
How might we start curing ourselves of the fundamentalist virus and
move in the direction of becoming more festive and relentless champions
of the liberated imagination?
For starters, we can take everything less seriously and less personally and
We can laugh at ourselves at least as much as we laugh at other people.
We can blaspheme our own gods and burn our own flags and mock our
own hypocrisy and satirize our own fads and fixations.
And we can enjoy and share the tonic pleasures of healing mischief,
friendly shocks, compassionate tricks, irreverent devotion, holy pranks,
playful experiments, and crazy wisdom.

I found this intresting since most of the time we dont respect what we dont accept ( unless we fear it).
I once saw a bumber sticker that said- be kind & respect its easy-
well of course it is when it makes others want to help you get what you want:)
Its good for buisness,relationships but what happens if you need to do it for most of the day,or an annoying custumer asks you 101 pointless questoins & your were starving or missed your coffee that morning?
Are there sincere kind people who respects your deferential personality?
Oh Yes millions it all comes down to one major Question!
Those who trully chose from thier free will as kids how,they dreamed to live,some had tiny ones others looked to the sky- but they dont have the words success or failier inside-your feelings are a journey ,exploration you learn from & is allways curious-its being kind & respecting yourself!
The unlucky were forced to neglect -ignore thier inner will -criticism was to much for them as children needing approvall -so it makes perfect sense thier difficulty to love or respect & accept the strange nature ,the untamed desire ,the uncontrolled child- in one simple word Change!
good night c all my nice friends & members Tomm find this a great way to let my steam out
At least 4 percent of all people who receive life or the death sentence are found innocent thats over 10,000 people according to a recent study done by various universities from the last 10 years!
Number of cases in which DNA played a substantial factor in establishing innocence is huge thanks to advanced technology !
check out "THE NATIONAL REGISTRY OF EXONERATIONS"
seems like an urge to put away a fellow brother for life as long as your boss whispers in your ear Good job!
just in the past 5 years 10 people who spent over 20 years in a cell were found wrongly charged
Ricky Jackson-.A American man who spent 39 years behind bars for a murder that he did not commit is the LONGEST !!!
The FBI who were connected in the conviction of many of these cases admits that there was a regular favor to convict rather then come up empty handed so pulled strings in order to favor the victims lawyers or jury!
now why the hell am i telling you this information , connect them too the previous blogs!
Its no secret we all at the end of the day choose protecting our income first ,cause we know if that is on track the rest will come naturally!!
So i guess in 2nd place comes the opposite sex ,love, our pride ect ...
Our motives are compromised by nature or the society we live in ,no matter gender ,race or religious beliefs we might have!!! Its normal , but do you ever wonder whats under that?
Sometimes were just too busy or scared to find out! what if it goes angainst our lifestyle we build?
maybe less then one percent have that luxury & even less follow through!
pherhaps it was never meant for us to explore?
(but just for the fun of it lets say we could!)
So will have too rely on our imagination here:)
you have all the money in the world but your also the only one in the world, cant even donate some too feel good about yourself, or buy your lover a gift!
What then will motivate you ?
iv'e followed this reaction for years ,i mean why do we need religion,god, jesus , when in reality we hardly behave that way ?
Hell, but were really good in preaching it , if you struggled most of your life i don't envy you, better get a head start while your still young, sometimes we are so used to wrapping all our actions with a pink ribbon & a stamp in gods name - we can't tell if our actions are good or evil but we do we care?
Dont judge a book by its cover & sometimes humans are the crulest Animal .
we should leave competition where it belongs cause its not only in sports where it should stay,
its spread in our human interaction to the smallest detail!!!
It will make a diffrence to the people you care about& you will preserve your energy for the playing field:)
good luck if you try
