I would be posting from the toilet and I probably wouldn't be able to stop shaking long enough to type.

On a smaller scale, many people who follow a particular faith are more tolerant to other beliefs. To be able to transcend this judgment and accept everyone for what and who they are is what knowing god is about. God is merely a term or an idea that stirs up all sorts of preconceived notions by those that speak it. I resisted identifying with any sort of spirituality or religion for many years because of the negative beliefs I had acquired about the word "god". In the end I have come to realize that god is merely a representation of our true selves. When we walk a path of understanding, compassion and contentment in each waking moment we are drawn closer to "god". When we judge others we are actually judging ourselves. If you watch your mind closely, you are casting judgment constantly all day. This, combined with the eternal struggle to find contentment in the external or the future is the source of pain.

The horrendous acts in the name of religion have given rise to a mass resentment to the idea of god or spirituality. It is unfortunate because these acts and these people who claim to be acting in the name of god are probably the most confused about what it means to know god in the first place.

Sorry for the rant, I just had a cup of coffee and the words flowed off my fingertips.
Nicely stated.

I am glad to hear that. I saw you post about the things in your past that caused you much pain. If this is your way of dealing with that, good for you. You miss much in life by lacking empathy.

Well spotted pommysmommy. I do seem to have carved out a decent life however. Because of the relevant points you have raised I will try and be a better person but I can't guarantee it. We have all sorts inhabiting this site. Keeps the brew bubbling. Cheers
