I can play and sing The Beatles better than The Beatles do… I sound more lIke The Stones than The Stones do! I ‘m a professional Musician! If you heard some of my own songs, you would mavel at them! I truly believe one day, we will be famous! I just come from practice, and I can safely say, I am really gifted beyond a shadow of a doubt … You may think John Lennon is lost, but he lives in my voice!
I have a lot of power and delivery! I don’t mean to brag, but I’m better than anyone! I hate being so right, but I usually am… I’m a great Musician! I have an amazing voice!. I don’t think you know. But when I sing, I’m pure power! And I can reach very high notes! My voice is more pure than Lennon’s voice is! And I’m just as good a rhythm player… I’m better than anyone in my band! In point of fact, I’m the best that there is! I sing like an Angel! And I play very fast… Plus I’m a very sweet person. People enjoy being around me… They find it a privelege to know me… Pray to me!! I’m the greatest! My own stuff is even better… I truly can’t see any falability in my presentation! To be the best there is in something… Anything! Holy SH*T! And to be at practice? There’s no place I’d rather be :O)
Contrary to popular belief, grieving is a process in which we come to terms with a person we’ve lost, rather than a suffering of their absence. It is a process of forgiveness, not only for what transgressions against you are inflicted by a departed one, yet also for yourself, for not having forgiven them while they were alive. Certainly even those we love have transgressed against us in one form or other. No one is perfect by any means. Yet for those who have viciously or ignorantly hurt us so deeply, that it seems unfathomable for us to even consider forgiving them, this is the true challenge of real strength and character! In this article, I not only intend to state why we must forgive, but how important it is to approach God for proper instruction to go about doing so. It’s not easy, and requires much reflection and deep contemplation on the matter, both for their freedom, and your own…
Studies show that people who forgive are happier and healthier than those who hold resentments. The first study to look at how forgiveness improves physical health discovered that when people think about forgiving an offender it leads to improved functioning in their cardiovascular and nervous systems. Another study at the University of Wisconsin found the more forgiving people were, the less they suffered from a wide range of illnesses. The less forgiving people reported a greater number of health problems.
How Do We Fail To Forgive?
When I was young, I found it so easy to forgive others because my mind was fresh, and I was so willing to look behind the reasons why people acted the way that they did. Yet after being what seemed to be more and more senselessly beaten down by others, my heart grew cold and distant from them. And by doing so, I gave up the one thing that was most precious to my existence on this Earth: my curiosity towards people: how they think and feel, and why they do the things they do.
A lack of curiosity stems from us either being unwilling to learn and understand, or thinking we already know and understand enough. Unfortunately, most people reside at either end of these two extremes, when curiosity in fact lies someplace in between. It was this discovery that lead me to understand that we therefore forgive others out of fear and obligation, rather than from a true change of heart. This is a curious observation indeed because it explains why there’s so much war and hatred in this world. It’s because we haven’t learned how to forgive ourselves yet, let alone tackling how to forgive others…
To Forgive, We Must Also Forget…
After my brother died, I realized how much I still held against him in life: choosing to concentrate on his faults and shortcomings rather than understanding the circumstances behind them, and seeing his attempts to make an honest effort in this life. You can’t forgive without trust! And that’s a tall order when you feel as though someone violates that trust on a constant basis… So what do you do? You approach God with the problem…
Call it a hunch. Call me wrong! Call me irresponsible! Stop calling me names! OK? But the one question I knew I had to ask God was the one I feared most: ‘How can you forgive me, for not forgiving my brother?’ And His response (since I always ask for wisdom, love and insight in my prayers) was simple yet elegant: ‘Forgive your brother first! Then ask for forgiveness from me.’ So to forgive him, I had to first forgive myself for not forgiving him! One must heal one’s own self first before thinking on the matter clearly, and with an open heart…
Do You Know What You Know?
Do I know what I know? I must always ask myself that question to reawaken my own curiosity, and to understand the workings behind people better! This opens the door to more than people, but to everything… Recently for instance, the question: ‘What is an ion?’ has been plaguing me no end! LOL! People run a little deeper than ions though. In The Lord’s Prayer, what do we ask for? (I always get you with The Lords Prayer!) LOL! We ask: ‘Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us…’ So is it others we want to forgive? Or do we really want to forgive ourselves for forgiving half heartedly out of fear of retribution, and some mechanical obligation? Something to think on! The key to real forgiveness lies in one word listed boldly in the picture above… Love…
I’m sick to death (and death comes before sick), of people telling me what I should do, when, and how I should do it! I’ll do things according to God’s set of rules not yours! OK by you? Not really! When are you going to learn that you only hurt yourself and cause resentment when you order people around? This is not YOUR JOB! You are not ‘the boss at work’ here! The women in my life have been especially notorious for this. It bugs their ass no end that I have my own mind and just so happen to think for myself!
I’ll give you the correct order of operation on this rock and you can forking well implant it in your brains once and for all time, because you are answerable to God for this, not me! So it’s not me who’s setting down the law here. I don’t make the rules, but I sure as Hell had better follow them! And you know why! Because it serves my/your best interest. That’s why! If you break the law, you answer to the government don’t you? If your children break the rules you set for them, do they not answer to you? And why do you suppose that’s true? It’s because one has more power over the other! One is more competent to make decisions on behalf of the others best well being whether we freaking well like it or not! Here is your order of operations, not dictated by the peanut gallery I might add:
Look! This order is not placed in this particular arrangement so that each can be a freaking big shot over the one below it! Do you understand? DO YOU? If you did, then you would go apologize to your mate right now for acting like a tyrant prison warden over their entire lives, and turning them into nothing more than what’s tantamount to your very own freaking vegetable garden, and you know it! And no, I did not forget the government. I didn’t list it because it’s a sub-category placed here by God to make certain you follow His way for you because YOU refuse to do it!
Contrary to popular belief, you weren’t put here for your own private disco dance! We all have a duty to ourselves and others, to leave a positive imprint on this world so that we might leave it with a clear conscience, and so that it might continue to exist in a productive manner. But no! You don’t give a flying rats ass, just as long as you can keep your bib in your mouth… Grow up! Be someone!
I still don’t think you can comprehend what I’m saying because you’ve been like this for so long, you actually believe your own lies! I’m not mad at you. Unlike the way some bloggers conduct themselves, it’s not my objective to put you down.
However, there is such a thing as righteous indignation. Now as much as I’d like to always give you what you want, I must also see to your needs as given priority over what you want because you obviously don’t know what you want any more likely than you will ever get up off your sorry ass and DO THE RIGHT THING!!
You know I’ve bent over backwards to be fair about this! There are plenty of posts here you will find where I give you what you want: Soft backgrounds, photos, poems, quotes, extracts, buttons, icons, and all sorts of neat and tidy little packages because you’re either to damn lazy or refuse to commit yourself to read over 196 words precisely! You just push a like button, the lying sneak in the grass that you are, and figure you’ve made some kind of contribution to the blogging world…
Math has an order of operations called: ‘BEDMAS’ (Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction), does it not? Notice how subtraction is the last priority in line… You are here to help your family, mate, friends etc.. not trample all over them with your silly set of rules and regulations! You have zero tolerance and that’s your downfall! If we should change the rules of math, then complete chaos would be the only answer available to us, and its entire structure would be nothing short of useless to us all! It works the same way with humans… It works the same way for everything and must!
Now no matter how incompetent you think your mate is, refer back to the order of operations, and you will see that Man is answerable to Christ, who in turn is answerable to God. Yes? Now if we make mistakes, I’m sorry for your delicate sensitivities, but that’s how we learn in this life! So stop stifling my education! And find a branding iron, and embed it your mind concerning everyone around you! IT’S MY LIFE!! And I’ll live it the way I see fit, shortcomings and all. It may come as a shock to you, but you have your own misgivings that need revamping as well. That’s your duty to yourself and the best favor you will ever do for yourself if you ever want to get along in this world.
Oh you may fool the weak minded among you, but you won’t fool Christ, and you’ll have to answer to God for it, because Christ can’t help you if you refuse his instruction for you! And yes. He’s here! In this universe of what we now believe may be one of many, are you so arrogant as to believe you’re the only intelligent thing walking? You’re in for a rude awakening!
Why does Google list all of our tags in a backward position from the way we place them? It’s because as I keep drilling into your numb skulls, everything is backwards! Now from women on down most especially, with the exception of embryos and infants, because they’re not responsible for their behavior, but the rest of you are! And don’t misunderstand me! Many men think they’re God too! IT’S MY LIFE!! NOT YOURS! HANDS OFF! NO TRESPASSING!
