Thank you for reminding me of my truth. This is my reality and makes sense to me. This has nothing to do with religion - this is part and parcel of me. Sometimes it is just necessary to be reminded - thanks for doing just that!

Sadly the "fortune cookie wisdom" contained in your reply leaves me in no doubt that you are just another "love junkie" blind to the perversion and brutality of the creator. Your path is the easiest path to walk as it is littered with comforting lies....
Enjoy it while you can, the real truth awaits you...

Is it perverse that we have free will to make of our existence what we will?
Is it brutal that we are allowed to treat each other the way we choose to?
Would you rather be a slave under a God who demands your obedience? Is that what you really want?
What man would choose slavery over freedom?
The world is OUR making. Yet some choose to pass the buck to the creator for the mess we have made.

I try to live as you say. It's not easy to do, but it's very easy to slip back into hate and mistrust.
In the end I hope that the effort is worth something, or that a change in me is forthcoming. I will learn all sooner or later.
Thanks for the message.

see above about megadeath via God not respecting our choice.

Originally posted by SaturnFXDrive out on a sunday morning, look for buildings with a giant lowercase T on the top...all those people in the building have chosen to enslave their mind to counter-rational thinking and dont get me started on the buildings with a crescent moon and star.
Originally posted by SaturnFXNope, seems whenever we try to make something, some uppity deity comes by and knocks over the sandcastle we make...be it with floods, fire and brimstone hammering some of our cities, our excellent tower to the heavens project, etc...we cant catch a break...
Originally posted by SaturnFXThis...God...guy. He seems quite petty if the bible is to be believed.

It's hard to believe in all of this lovey-dovey new age bull# when your life sucks and can't be changed by appreciating abstract things like "universal love" or the "energy of the cosmos". What do you say to people with life-long illnesses that keep them from enjoying life, to people who are starving, and to anybody else in paralyzing life circumstances?

I don't want to come off as having an abrasive stance towards the OP, but I do feel I ought to express a concern I have. Every week there appears to be another "final warning" posted on ATS. Usually it is made manifest by a largely negative and condescending speech about the cryptic behavior of the least amicable examples of humanity. I do respect the OP's desire to present forward feelings of love and harmony, and to be honest, I would want to do the same if given a podium in a public forum. My rudimentary concern is just the fact that most ATS members are often presented these posts that appear to declare an ultimatum of sorts. Love and peace are to me, the most fundamental goals to strive for and there is a right way to encourage them. I do believe however, that when you start trying to duress others into feeling how you feel, claiming that if they don't subscribe to your notions it will bring about a cataclysmic consequence, it creates more problems than it solves.
