So what evidence do you have that proves otherwise? I'll flat out admit that i have no hard evidence either way. I am honest enough with myself to
admit that all i know is based off my own personal experiences and the experiences and thoughts of others. Who am i to tell you that you are wrong?
And who are you to tell me otherwise? Explain to me where your authority comes from.
I have no authority. I am at the mercy of the world around me and my own minds interpretations. It is by leading a life that many could consider
favorable that i will find my security in this world of uncertainties. I do not steal, i do my best to control my tounge and hand when i feel that
wrong has been done by me. And i have committed many wrongdoings in my life. My hands are no more clean than the most bloodied of dictators.
I'm sorry, but your words sound like those of a hurt and scared man. Something i am familiar with having spent most of my life hurt and scared by the
people around me.
It's ok, i'm scared too. I have no clue what will really happen to me when i die. I do not care to know either.
I already know what response you will give me. You will accuse me of being uneducated, you will accuse me of only knowing what i have been shown by
others. That you have observed more than me and know more than me because you have read more than one book and seen physics in action. Do you not know
that i draw my observations and thoughts from the same well of knowledge? Then why do i come to different conclusions than you? If either of us is
correct then why do we disagree? Because we are deluding ourselves? Because everyone is lying?
So please, unless it is words of encouragement and words of love then please stay your hands and tounge.
We can agree that it is not what goes into our mouths that defile us but what comes out that makes us unclean right? I know you might ignore me and
give the same treatment that the OP has recieved from his detractors. Or maybe you will agree, only finding nuances to disagree with.
I know that you will turn my own words against me. I did the same to others. And i was not alone in my actions.
Keep in mind does not make me better than you. I am no better than the rocks that gather scum from the pond.
The sadness and anger that you feel for those who are mislead. I understand where it comes from, because i feel the same thing. " if only they
understood" soon becomes " THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND, DAMN THEM LET THEM SUFFER THEIR FATE FOR WE ARE CORRECT AND MANY OTHERS AGREE"
This is something i have observed of all people of all faiths and beliefs and supposed disbelief. What makes your or i so special?
Peace and love will find their way to you so long as you truly seek. It is not reserved for one special group of people or one special person. It
never has been. Remember this, Crystal Mountains are destined to shatter and a false doctrine will be exposed as lies. An empire made of paper is
destined to burn at the hands of an arson or a stray spark from the night.
Please don't hold is against me that i do not look at things the same way you do. I will do my best to reciprocate. Our goals are more alike than you
may think. Perhaps we just travel different roads to the same city? Can we come to a mutual understanding? Or do we merely seek confirmation of our
Please, show me where the truth is. Show me one ideology or thought that is iron-clad. Or is it all paper built upon fallible words that constantly
shift with the tides of thought? What stability is there in a body of knowledge that can change at the drop of a hat or an explosion of a star?
I love you. and if i am right in my hearts feelings then i will beg on your behalf that you are given greater gifts than me.
Do not forget, at no point do i claim certainty, At no point do i claim to have truth. merely possibility and only interpretation. Just please, Show
me and others like me mutual respect. And i will gladly defend you from your own kind and my own kind. I firmly believe that is our role to keep a
loving heart towards each other regardless of race, nation, religion, belief or creed. But that is merely a belief.
Peace, and may you find greater treasures than i could dream of.
