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…
We do not want schools,
they will teach us to have churches.
We do not want churches,
they will teach us to quarrel about God.
We do not want to learn that.
We may quarrel with men sometimes
about things on this earth,
but we never quarrel about God.
We do not want to learn that
~Chief Joseph (Nez Perce Tribe)
I am now a web site building god
ok, not really… more like a web site building person
ok, ok…, you got me… pretty much a web site building ant
but that’s my final offer 😉
I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh,
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus,
I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your God
~Holly Near (songwriter)
For all you whiners
Obama – get over it already, geez, all the energy that folks put into whining about him could be better used to effect change, or if you’re so frikkin worried, wouldn’t it be simpler to just pray God will help him make the right decisions rather than blaming Him for allowing the ‘wrong’ man into office?. I’m weary of all the BS
Prop 8 – two humans wanna get married, so what. Is your life so pathetic that you want to make others live the way YOU feel they should. Grow up…, what – are we still in grade school. The Universe (God) has a way of shushing those that judge (lets say… ’bout the gays for example), usually by giving you children that are the very thing you disdain so you are forced to look past religion and hypocrisy, maybe giving ‘unconditional love’ a test drive .
