I’d like mirror back Dan Cathy’s (president Chick-fil-A) quote but change a few words
“we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes NATURAL (God’s design) and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redesign animals and plants by creating things that have been genetically modified (GMO – basically scientists are violating the natural state of living things) and allow the Earth to be raped, pillaged & burned”.
If you’re unsure of God’s way, just look to animals & nature because they live in a rhythm of God’s design. They don’t marry (nor care about it), they don’t try to change the nature of living things and they don’t defile where they live
In spiritual matters, turn off the brain & turn on the heart. Either you’re ‘all in’ (all encompassing) in your view and living your religion to the fullest, or don’t do it at all… I doubt God intended a smorgasbord of hand picked personal peeves for you to tout about while being blind to the bigger picture of ALL humanity.
***This is Dan Cathy’s original quote:
“…we’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage. And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about…”
The sun comes up every day,
The sun goes down every day,
Life fills the space between.
Going with the flow,
Doing what is natural,
Letting life unfold,
‘good’ or ‘bad’…
It doesn’t matter,
It is where life is juiciest,
and ultimately the most fulfilling.
A tree knows this.
A dog knows this.
We just need to remember it.
This is life.
This is living
Remember behind the mirrors,
You are seen as you are…
life packed in cardboard,
Smelling of dead trees,
regret, and… even hope.
You are seen.
star shining bright
amidst sparkling eyes
manic high with a guru heart.
You are seen.
Life is circles
A dervish of beginnings and endings
leaving you exhausted & exhilarated
all in the very same breath
Love the Earth
and the Sun
and the Animals.
Give Alms to everyone that asks,
Stand up for the stupid & crazy,
Devote your income & labor to others,
Hate tyrants, argue not concerning god,
Have patience & indulgence toward people,
Take off your hat to nothing known
or unknown or to any man
or number of men,
Go freely with powerful uneducated persons
and with the young
and with mothers of families,
Read these leaves in the open air
every season of every year of your life,
Reexamine all that you have been told at school
or church or in any book,
Dismiss whatever insults your very own soul,
and your very flesh shall be a great poem
and have the richest fluency not only in its words
but in the silent lines of the lips & face
and between the lashes of your eyes
and in every motion & joint of your body…
I believe sexual energy is both primal and Divinely expressive. All living things contain sexual energy. Whether it is repressed or expressed, it still must be acknowledged. Whether a life form feels universal connection or a simply a biological release is dependent on the focus.
To expand beyond what we are, we must open to the Divine. Our partner, becomes both the key and the gateway. By putting our attention on the energy that we are giving and receiving, we can amplify it. We create something that cannot be attained without a partner, beyond biological release and normal awareness. This amplification allows us to transcend our physical shells and step joyously into the realm of spirituality.
While orgasm by definition is the culmination of the act, the process is in fact, the key. Placing your awareness into another human, breathing as they breath, sensitivity to their response, and awareness of the shared mental state becomes a celebration of the Divine. We transcend individual male or female form and become both.
Losing inhibitions and accepting what “is” becomes a journey in itself. There are no perfect bodies, there is no perfect moment. We all age, wither and eventually die. Illness and disease are parts of life too. They do not lessen the person nor the experience unless we choose to define ourselves by something that is as transient as a breath. Our lives, while important to us, have less universal scale than a molecule of water. Our egos will place walls where none should exist.
I believe this shared sexual experience has the capacity to encompass the body and the Divine being. The time up to, and including, the orgasm can be rapturous. Our minds devoid of thought, enable the ego to disappear and we become pure consciousness. This state of consciousness opens a channel through which a connection to our body, souls and ultimately the Divine become possible.
Love to All,
I see things. Layers of things. This place, possible places and always the universal connection.
I believe we are all connected, and separateness is only a mental illusion. What I do for you, I do for myself, for everything else and the universe. I believe a heartfelt act of kindness ripples though the entire cosmos. To give or receive with humility, gratitude and love is an honor granted to us by the Divine.
I believe we are all directed by the Universe to care for each other. Maybe some are born able to see light and joy while others must search for it. I know, that at times, we ALL need a soft, loving and unconditional place of acceptance.
It is puzzling, that unconditional acceptance and love, are put into restrictive confines. Filtered, processed, suppressed, ignored, redefined. Unconditional, truly is that. I see the divinity, I feel the connectedness. Whether the outstretched hand is ever grasped, or even seen, makes no difference, it will remain a loving offering from the universe.
Love to all,
