Thoughts on Purpose

A few random ideas I’ve jotted down lately..

 


 

Life – The Incredibly-Brief Long Time.

**

Chaos ensues.  By definition.

**

Let it come easy, let it come hard.  Amen.

**

Homo sapiens sapiens is defined by society.  Our large networks of interdependantship are literally what make us humans.

**

The Astronauts who landed on the moon are the last of the Truly Great Americans.

**

The Laws of Probability are probably the most useful tools we can help the next generations master.

**

Math is the core of abstract understanding.

**

No man who truly understands himself would be capable of passing judgement on another.

**

 

That’s all I got.

Karma, a Christian concept?

When Christ was crucified, he did so to forgive all of Humanity’s sins, past present and future.  If you think of sin on Vice and Virtue measurement. Reset the count to an even 0-0.   This is basically Karma, on a scale of measuring all of Humanity.  This act even attoned for Original Sin, the moment that Eve was persauded by the Serpent.  So, after the Cruxifiction, Humans were no longer born with the weight of Original Sin, and thus their actions alone would be judged.  Be we are not to Judge.

Today, when we pray or ask for Forgiveness, we do so not because God expects us to, but because a Godly man would spend time in introspection and mediation on his actions.  Asking for Forgiveness forces us to deal with our “demons” mentally.  Forgiveness is only given to the Repentant.  If a person does not repent, or feel guilt, it is because it was either never necessary, or because they’ve yet to realize the consequences of their actions.

This, Self-Awareness, Self-Examination, is what makes us Human.  It’s what makes every human redeemable.  Sin exists now because of Free Will, and lack of proper understanding of Cause and Effect.  There are so many so opposed to Science that they cannot see the gifts it gives us.  Every new discovery and invention helps us understand each other a little more.  And that’s All Jesus Christ ever asked of us.

If I Could Breathe is a poem I started writing for my father, months before his death.  I never quite got to a Final Draft, but I’m going to share with you the few drafts I did complete.


 

If I Could Breathe – Draft #1

 

If I could breathe

I’d tell you everything.

If I could breathe

I’d spit it out.

 

But there’s no way

to get it out now.

No longer can I scream

or shout.

 

Other than that,

I’m feeling fine.

At least most

of the time.

May the Lords of Happiness always protect us from the Legions of Misery.

Death is the absence of Being.

Life is the process of Being.

The basics of what we teach our children has to change to include complex, abstract ideas, for real understanding. Fear must be removed from the classroom. We must teach our children to associate knowledge with fun and happiness. Our children deserve better than we had. Open discussion of abstraction is the only way that the world will improve. Analytical thought is so important. Reason and logic must prevail. With an early education of this style, we might grow as human beings, and as spiritual beings. Creativity, abstract thought, complex ideas, and problem solving is the only way our children will ever be better people than we were.
