Why do people insist on sending out political information via facebook? Do they really thing that it will in anyway change my opinion on a person or issue. I find it to be insulting that anyone would sent me unverified false information and expect me to believe it is fact. If you are going to share something be sure you have your facts straight. Take the time to research it, is it bias information, does it really mean anything to you or are you forwarding someone else’s agenda. With the election coming up I have received numerous shares that have nothing to do with reality. Obama is an American citizen; he is not Muslim and is not trying to destroy America. He was elected by this country to represent America. As any other president, he is probably doing the best he can. Get real. If you are going to continue to send me lies and stupid assertions that offend my sensibility do not get upset if I call you on your stuff. Do not sent out anything if you do not except a response.
I consider myself a conservative Democrat or a liberal Republican depending on the issue. I believe this country has enough money to educate all our children for as long as they wish to stay in school. I also believe we should be able provide adequate health care to everyone. We have the means. As for Abortion my opinion does not count because I am not a woman. The American Dream has changed. It is not the same one I grew up with. I am over it. We need to try and get this country back together. As a whole there is nothing Americans cannot accomplish. Divide we will continue to flounder. I feel this country was founded on Consensus, Compromise and Compassion, but then again I could be wrong. PEACE
The other misleading thought about prayer is that you have to be worthy in order for your prayer to be answered. As if there is a judge somewhere hearing your prayer and deciding you deserve to have your prayer answered. Have you sacrificed or offered enough tithing to have your prayers fufilled? It goes on to say that if your prayers are not answered you are not worthy.
How can we even think or suggest that our Higher Power would behave in such a manner? That is childish believes that needs to change.
Prayer to me is a part of a process in which you allow the universe to know your intent. Praying to know your higher powers intent for you is even more powerful. Communicating with the universe and manifesting your desires is as normal as breathing. You do not have to thing about breathing nor do you have to think about manifesting what is. We just have to accept what is and to rest just happens. Most of us have a relationship with prayer so we know it works. All I am saying is try and be more aware at what your praying for. PEACE
Hi friends, it has been a while since my last blog. I am not sure why that is, but I have decided to start a new discussion on prayer, Not the religious kind but more as a process for connecting with your higher power. However you define it.
First I would like to say what I thing prayer is not.
For one thing, the word prayer has the feeling of one entity making a request of another, as if a little guy is asking a big guy sor something, like a peasent begging a king for a crust of bread. This common assumption-hat we’re weak and helpless children in Big Daddy’s house_ infects many peoples thinking and is very symptomatic of Human Childhood. Spiritual Warfare by Jed MeKenna
The first step is to realize that we are not children anymore and that the weakness we feel is coming from our mind. If we change our thoughts we can change this feeling. I have preformed fox hole prayers and they seemed to have worked, however i never really felt that was the way to communicate with my higher power. This feeling of being just a small part of the whole picture has to include the fact that without your part there is no whole picture. Like the ocean is really just a bunch of water drops. And that if all the drops were removed where would the ocean be.
Prayer is not about wishing things were different, but merging with the way things are.
Next time we will continue with another misleading thought about the word prayer. PEACE
