Religious Thought

This site was put up to tell the story of how silly our drug laws have become. We have gone to others areas because I have other political issues that are dear to me, one being the efforts of some to put God in our government. Now just whose God are we going to put in our government mine, yours, Pat Robertson’s, Napoleon’s, Henry VIII’s and on and on.

My Catholic friends say God is the maker of all things seen and unseen. I accept this interpretation in full. The seen part all will agree, but the unseen has many, as I, in a quandary. I must search for this on a daily basics if I am to live in harmony with my fellow man.

I live and work with a fellowship that requires nothing of me. However the direction I get from these people is I should form my own understanding of God. I should accept principles that aid me in developing a personal relationship with a God of my understanding. Also I try to understand principles of unity so together we can carry a message of faith to others. The teaching of my childhood and my continued search for a better understanding of God lead me to believe Jesus Christ had a good handle on these principles two thousands years ago.

He never sought power or wealth, he obeyed the law and encouraged other to do so, except when exception to the law injured others, i.e. setting aside your wife. His message was about forgiveness, and forgiveness for the remission of sins. Most of all Love for one another.

It is beyond anything in can comprehend that someone saying they are following his message would take it upon themselves to change the constitution of the USA just to suit his message. They have other ambitions.

telephoned a hospital

A sweet grandmother telephoned a hospital. She timidly asked, “Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?”
The operator said, “I’ll be glad to help, Dear. What’s the name and room number?”
The grandmother in her weak tremulous voice said, “Holly Finkel, room 302.
The Operator replied, “Let me check. Oh, good news. Her record says that Holly is doing very well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just
came back as normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged Tuesday.”
The Grandmother said, “Thank you. That’s

wonderful! I was so worried! God bless you for the good news.”
The operator replied, “You’re more than welcome. Is Holly your daughter?”
The Grandmother said, “No, I’m Holly Finkel in 302. No one tells me shit.” Via e-mail from a family nember

Thought for Today

Some people asked a Sufi master, “Which is better, courage or generosity?” The Sufi master replied, “Those who are generous, have no need for courage.”

Weirdharold stole this from somewhere. If that individual objects he does not believe that which he printed.

Carl Jung

Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology.  He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar’s gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart throught the world.  There in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with a real knowledge of the human soul. — Carl Jung
