Comment on “RefuJesus” is Two Years Old TODAY! by Jack Russell

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 14:34:05 +0000

Ideas frequently spark off fro me when reading your posts David - that's a compliment. You are probably going to think I am being "oppositional" and applying my "balance" with what I am about to write but if I always comment in a way that doesn't risk that kind of response from you, can I truly be acting in a way that is consistent with being spiritually free? We have all seen pictures of refugees or migrants. Perhaps you have seen the one of the dead boy on a beach. It would take a heart of stone to not be moved by the plight of many experiencing this. And many of us are rising up, welcoming folks to the country and helping with integration. At the same time many coming over bring the same problems that they left with them and don't want to integrate but rather bring about change in our country. In comparison our country is doing better than theirs and it would be more beneficial for all if there were integration. For people in some areas, the influx has resulted in people feeling like foreigners in their own country and even afraid to go out at night. So of course there ought to be compassion for folks who find themselves for whatever reason like this and this be put into action. At the same time it is rather nauseating that there seems to be some celebrity popping up from time to time with a message to resurrect their flagging career and appear to be virtuous while often doing little to help and then gaining followers. Unfortunately this is very complex and not as black and white as an image of a boy in a beach might make it appear.



Comment on Our Beliefs Only Seem to Divide Us by Jack Russell

OK so the level of value for every attempt is dependent on how there is collaboration with (the unfolding of) reality. Therefore where there is low value there is a seeming division, where there is high value, seeming unity.

That's true Pat. Good point.

And as soon as one hears your label, they move on mentally. They often don't seek to find out what that label means to you, just assuming you're one of them. OR they write you off based on the label.

Haha love it - I can affirm what you say about in choosing not to go with a label you will definitely frustrate people. The saying "labels are for boxes and jars, not people" comes to mind. I love the happy and contented expression on the can/person on the lounger and the sad/puzzled.angry demeanour of the others. Nice one! :)

Ditto on the Aero Press. I buy locally grown beans here in S.E. Asia, grind and press. Ah....delicious!



Comment on The Gracious God is the Last One to Go by Caryn LeMur

Hmmmmm.... as someone that has deconstructed, and reconstructed, and is still a believer... I would offer a different analysis. There is certainly a god beyond my imagination. I agree with you there. However, there is an interface between me and god. In that interface, I find good use of the word "Father". As I go through my day, and the Spirt directs me to help people (they come to mind; and an insight/analogy/history pops up that is too clear to be only me), I call that interface the "Spirit" or "Holy Spirit". In my interface, I seldom pray to "Jesus" - for some reason that name does not resonate well with me (during my time in the interface). So, there is certainly something beyond my interfacing, and my constructs. But that is OK. I think our idea of deconstruction and reconstruction is similar, David. I agree that the process is scary, and a person that enters the process will most often leave with an evolved philosophy. But the interface may continue and be quite deeper than before.

I hear what you are saying. Coming to your cartoon a second time I'm looking at the thought's about God and God being outside of that. My guess is that this is what you are looking at when you talk about "this gracious God" referring to the thoughts of a gracious God and we certainly won't experience reality if we don't let go of our thinking. So our thinking being the thing to let go of and that being what grace and love does. So not having attachment to certain thoughts. With what you say about it being terrifying could I suggest that about emotions too? Not having attachments to them? Would you say that what you are advocating is not all that dissimilar to the "cloud of unknowing" or the "dark night of the soul" ? So maybe grace and love being both what is terrifying at times and at others ushers in an ability to experience reality, something beyond beliefs, thoughts and fears? Thanks - interesting stuff. :)

I don't know if it does free us to, but we certainly won't if we don't.
