We all know what man-made laws are. A legislative body votes to enact a system of rules that regulates human actions. Legislators, however, often make human laws to benefit themselves.
For example, what happens when voters become disenfranchised by crooks taking over a government who will then use taxes for personal gain? (This isn't about voter ID laws that prove one has a legal right to vote.) To
If Thanksgiving is about gratitude, Christmas is about giving—and receiving. We give to get something in return even if it is a thanks from recognition of having given. We give in turn to say, 'Thank you for your kindness.' Sometimes giving is from gratitude that we have more than others. So, volunteer at soup kitchens, give old clothes to thrift stores, or drop change into Salvation Army buc
I wrote this maxim more than two decades ago that says, 'Joy, we must look for, misery will find us.' Well, maybe not always.
Decades ago, when I was in acting school, an assignment for the following week was to express joy. I had no problem with the other emotions we were to emulate. Yet, I had no idea what joy felt like. While walking down Highland, passing Hollywood Boulevard, just past where I wo
That move us along aren't always gentle.
Life Paths aren't limited to numerology definitions. If reincarnation is reality then our existence ebbs and flows like the sea to the shore. It moves throughout the Universe and is not limited to this dimensional space. Why we exist and what is our purpose are good questions that multitudes have asked over aeons.
Some think we are to serve a god or higher powe
Being broken doesn't always mean that we are the victims of others. It may mean that we have victimized others, so broke ourselves when doing so. The philosophy that says when we hurt others, we only hurt ourselves has validity when realizing the tangible process. When we come to terms with hurting others and are truly remorseful we make up for it in many ways.
When the first Cave Man clobbered the
That's a question we will all face sooner or later. Perhaps, though not always possible, being sooner is better.
Dogma walks on a tight leash and has no tolerance for straying. Burning, beheading, battering behaviors are all consequences embedded into subconscious minds from eons of past lives to remind Seekers not to do so. Not only the Punished, but the Perpetrators live among us. Some extract ple
I've been chewing on this title for sometime. I didn't know how to approach it. I don't like to write frivolous blogs unless I have something to say. I leave that to my Twitter nnnTheCode feed. Anyway, I'm sure that I've alluded to this topic before. So what was there to say, really? I dropped it.
In this morning's early hours the 'Universe' gave me a gift. My heart is still swelling and joyous tears sti
. . . Shouldn't we throw them out?
Yet 'he' says, 'I will always be your God. So, no matter what I do to you, you must accept it with good grace.' Isn't this the creed that most religious believers live by? Because well, 'he' knows best. Don't those who live by such tenets prove they are better than their gods who caused the damage and expect or accept no blame? If it isn't clear what the aggrieved should do
Or, is it that no real love or friendship existed in the first place?
I'm meeting many more people who, upon greater evidence, aren't really married. They gave all the signals, but when it came down to it, did not formally say 'I dos' that tied the knots.
Okay, so tax laws are restrictive. When married women work they lose Social Security benefits, receiving only the husband's, if they remain united into
A politically correct society is constantly asking us to be tolerant of alternative lifestyles. The faster that society moves, the more extreme that lifestyles become. The 'Animal Planet,' 'History Channel,' or another channel, I can't remember, recently reported that in India, the society allows citizens to marry pets, even if pets are alligators. Okay. Just don't expect many three-ways.
