Definitions…

It has been said that the definition of insanity is: is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.

I think the definition of insanity is: spending endless amounts of money and the lives of one generations after another, fixing the problems we constantly create ourselves.  

Okay, so…

I was looking at my PBS TV Guide to see if anything exciting was on tonight.  Father Brown is on at seven.  The episode is about the death of a WANTON woman.

I looked the word up, just to see how the dictionary defined it, and men are not mentioned once.  Apparently, only women can be immodest and promiscuous.  So many labels are used to control women’s behavior, and keep them in line.

Apparently, guys who are immodest and promiscuous are called, men.

Sacrifice…

noun

an act of slaughtering an animal or person or surrendering a possession as an offering to God or to a divine or supernatural figure: they offer sacrifices to the spirits | the ancient laws of animal sacrifice.

• an animal, person, or object offered in a sacrifice.

• an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy: we must all be prepared to make sacrifices.

*****

Whether it’s a noun or a verb it’s all about killing animals and people for god…so many definitions about SACRIFICING for god.  Gag.

I don’t believe in sacrifice.  Here’s why.  If I do something for someone/some thing, I’m glad to do it, or I wouldn’t be doing it.

Killing animals as a sacrifice, instead of caring for animals and loving them, is what religions do and teach.  Same with killing people.  How’s that FOR TWISTED LOGIC.  Religion is a hateful and deadly thing.  Everything about it is concerned with death, murder, sacrifice and blood.  The death, murder, sacrifice and blood of OTHERS, not the people in charge, of course.  Never them.

This is why the world is so SCREWED UP.  Everything is BACKWARD.  Egomaniacs run the government and the church.  Both are willing to kill for themselves.  Neither sacrifices anything for anyone else but they constantly calls on OTHERS to do the SACRIFICING.

KILLING FOR SACRIFICE IS ALWAYS WRONG!  Sacrificial lambs…WRONG.  Sacrificing life for unfair and unjust wars…WRONG.  Sacrificing others for greed…WRONG.

They never teach the LOVING AND CARING FOR ANYTHING, which is never sacrificialSACRIFICE is all about  killing, death, greed and ego.  How can you sacrifice anything for those you care about or things you care about?  Anything done with good intention is never a sacrifice.

Even the god people believe in, “SACRIFICED” his only son.  Why didn’t he die in his place? Why did he send his kid there instead of going himself?   Always good questions.  I would die to save my kids…always.  When my son was dying I would have done ANYTHING to change places with him, so would my husband.  But not god.  Nope, he sends his kid to die and stays nice and safe on his cloud somewhere.  Even religious stories are twisted.  Dead kids, torture, dead lambs and rapist priests.  See, they try and tell you the love is IN the dying/death…it’s not.  That’s just another lie. To the church and government sacrifice means to SACRIFICE everyone but themselves.  

When I was in Rome, and the pope was waving from his tiny window, telling EVERYONE ELSE TO GIVE MORE TO OTHERS, they were having  gazillion dollar show of precious gems and gold in one of the churches.  Just a few of the articles the catholic church owns but doesn’t melt down TO GIVE MORE TO OTHERS, but instead hoards for themselves. There was a fee to get into the rooms to SEE THE MONEY THEY KEPT FROM FOR THEMSELVES.  What a joke that was.  Bulletproof car?  I bet that cost a lot of money, money that could have fed the poor, but wait, the pope was in his window, telling the poor to sacrifice so they could give more money to the poor and to the church, so that HE could have more, without giving anything.

Some parents use the word sacrifice to guilt their kids into doing things.  That’s blackmail.  If people are worried about what they’re giving up, or about outcomes, then it’s better not to give, or do anything at all.  It’s too expensive for the person who is on the receiving end.  Guilt is an ugly and disgusting thing.  Sacrifice is too.

Sacrifices always have an undertone of selfishness and power over others.  It’s a really a bad thing.  The church and government try to turn sacrifice into something people get points for but that’s not true. That’s manipulation and brainwashing.  People often feel self-righteous because of what they believe they have given up, or sacrificed, for others.  That’s a joke, you know that don’t you?  Ego and power, that’s what it’s really about.

If people feel as if they are sacrificing anything for someone, or some thing, they need to think about what they’re doing and who they’re doing it to and for.   Giving something freely is never a sacrifice.

Hey, I’m just sayin’.

Compassion…

compassion
is something we
turn on and off

self proclaimed
compassionate people
can be compassionate
now and then
when it’s convenient
or when it suits their needs

certain people are compassionate
to people of their own color
but not to others
compassionate to
one or two women
but not to others
compassionate to their companion animals
but not to the suffering of others

compassion
has a switch
that can be flipped
whenever people
don’t care
or whenever their
prejudices
or personal feelings
get in the way*

to me
that means
compassion exists
on a limited basis
because it’s selective

*If I saw a hunter attacked by an animal he was trying to kill…I would be okay with that and walk away.  My compassion would always be on the side of the animal.  I would stand in front of the deer, if I had to.  One less hunter would mean more live deer.  That’s a win for lots of other deer the guy might kill.  I wouldn’t have a drop of compassion for the hunter.  Just like rapists.  Get rid of one and you save a lot of women.

We all take sides in this kind of world, where bad things happen and there is hatred and killing.  We have to take sides, or the bad guys win and you can tell who the bad guys are…by the trail of violence, misery, lies, destruction and dead bodies they leave behind.

 

What if…

Question Mark Note Duplicate Request Matte

What if we’re all dead.  Seriously, we can’t prove that we aren’t, except by our own made up definition of what death is.  We have no idea what death is, remember.  So, here’s the thing:  what if we are dead and when we leave here…we’re actually BORN into an actual ‘life,’ or whatever it is?  There is no possible way to know if what happens to us when we exit, isn’t a million times better than what’s happening here.  With all the violence, brutality, destruction and hatred, how can we possibly believe that THIS is the best thing going?  We can’t.  No one can.

What we consider to be life, could simply be a ‘Waiting Room,’ where we stay, until we can finally get to where we want to go.  These are valid thoughts.  Just because they aren’t mainstream doesn’t mean they don’t matter.  We have no idea what’s going on, so this is just one more way to think about what we call life and death.

Perhaps, when someone we love dies, we should be having a huge party, because that person is free and on the way to something wonderful.  Instead of mourning, we should be celebrating that person’s release from the ‘waiting room.’

I think we need to rethink everything.  We are far too accepting of ideas that other people hand to us.  We have been brainwashed and manipulated into believing that someone actually knows what’s going on when they have absolutely no clue, just like the rest of us. We need to ask more questions.  A lot more questions.  We have to stop believing the misinformation, lies and insanity that we have been force fed from the beginning.

We do NOT know what happening, we have simply agreed to act as if we do.  If we start admitting that we don’t know anything…I think there might be a chance that we can look at everything in new ways, rather than be blinded by ‘the way things have always been.’  That’s the way it’s always been done, is real death…death of intellect, spirit and wonder.  Blind acceptance, IS a form of what we call death.  So turn things upside down and shake them.  See what you come up with.  Don’t throw out ideas just because the aren’t familiar, or because they don’t fit neatly into the status quo.  The status quo and the way things have always been done are prisons.  Look at everything…then revise, edit, and begin again.  Hey, I’m just sayin’.

What if…

What if everyone is perfect, just not when they’re around anyone else?  Maybe all of our perfects don’t go together with the perfects of others.  Perhaps we clash in our perfectness.

Or, what if no one is perfect?  How would we know?  What if perfect doesn’t exist? Anyone who writes definitions has their own world view, backed by their own personal experience, so any definition would be null, void and imperfect, right?  The definition in the dictionary is LONG but it doesn’t actually say what perfect IS.  The gymnasts get 10s, 7s, and 2s all at the same time.  Only one judge sees “perfect,” the others do not.

To me, perfect just means we like someone, or some thing, so it’s perfect to/for us personally, because no one knows what perfect really is.  What’s perfect to one of us, isn’t perfect to another because there is no such thing as perfect, except on an individual basis.

We use the word perfect a LOT…someone says, “they’re perfect for each other,” while the  people next to them, are thinking they’ll last six months together, tops and I think he was making out with the maid of honor before the bride arrived (I have seen that happen).  The perfect meal for many but the vegan at the other end of the table is pushing her plate full of dead animals away from her and trying not to gag.  Well, there are a million examples of how we use the word but you know what I mean.  Perfect, is in the eye of the beholder and there is no definition that could possible cover all of us.  Because perfect, like almost everything else, is whatever we say/think it is.

Definitions/labels 2

People in certain positions write definitions.  Those definitions, no matter how harmful and incorrect, become part of our belief system.  For example, when “scientists/shrinks, sociologists, wrote that girls weren’t good at math…that thought stuck in the minds of people and continues to do so today.  Girls were led away from science because of a lie that people believed.  Women couldn’t vote, or own property because the lie was that they were unable to manage things.  All the definitions and lies we have been told are there to keep certain groups of people from rising.  To keep the moronic status quo in place.

Tell someone that a person is a drama queen and no one sees the person any longer because they have already let the definition, of the man or women being described,. tell them all they need to know  Say someone plays the hero and people will never see the person as she is, but only as the definition describes her.  Just say only children, middle child, youngest and you immediately get information about each of them, which is false but you can’t see past what you’ve been taught/told.  That’s how we are controlled.

Native and African Americans were defined as three-fourths of a person and everyone saw them that way because that’s what the “experts” told them was true.  Labels are USED to keep the status quo in place.  It’s all about what works for the MEN in power.  The laws work the same way and can be defined to fill jails with those they don’t want to be free.

None of this garbage is REAL.  People are PAID by those who want us to believe what they want us to believe.

This applies to the definitions of EVERYTHING.  Why can women be priests?  Because they don’t have a penis?  Does their god demand a penis from those who work for him, so they can rape kids?  I’m not sure but I know the definitions are there to keep women out of positions of power.  That’s what definitions are FOR…to control the masses.   Whenever you hear something and get a picture in your head, that picture was put there on purpose by those who want to control what you think.  I’m an only child and people immediately assume that I’m spoiled, a princess. and all kinds of other idiotic things that are completely false.  The definition of “only child,” gives them permission to dismiss me, without knowing anything about me.  We see what we are taught to see, what we are conditioned to see, that’s why women and minorities are left out of history books, because the definition of success applies to white males ONLY.

Another thing, when “roles” can be described for huge segments of the population you know that people are being FORCED to pick one, or seen as acting out a particular role.  If millions of people are acting in a certain way IT’S NOT AN ACCIDENT.

This is all mind control.  So before you make assumptions that anything you’ve been taught in psych, sociology, or in general, is REAL or TRUE, think again.  Anyone can get paid to write whatever they like.  Look at the media.  The people who OWN the paper write and edit what they want you to know and see.  The truth is irrelevant.    If people tell you you’re a certain way based on a definition they read…don’t believe them.  And don’t look at others through the veil of lies we were taught and conditioned to believe.  We are each unique individuals being brainwashed into believing that we are anything but….

Acceptance is a dirty word…

There are only two things in life that we must accept.  One…our genetic background.  I’m Italian and Swedish and there’s nothing I can do about that…nothing at all.  Two…we are all going to die.  That may change in the future and if it does, then we will only have to accept number one.

Acceptance is a word used to manipulate and control the masses.  It’s a way to control everything that is done to us.  It’s used to make us feel lucky that things aren’t worse than they are, when, in fact, things could be much BETTER than they are, if people would simply stop accepting what is being DONE TO THEM by the people in power.

When we accept something we are automatically saying that whatever we are accepting, is okay.  If we didn’t think it was okay, we would refuse to accept it.  It’s pretty simply, actually.  We wouldn’t accept a car with a missing door but people are willing to accept the fact that the government is sending kids to die in wars for profit. We accept the fact that the government is taking homes from people, forcing the elderly to eat cat food, making education too expensive to  ever pay off the loans, keeping certain ethnic groups at the lowest poverty level possible without coming right out and killing them.  Reserving health care for the elite.  We accept the government, the police presence in the schools of our children, stop and search without just cause, the complete loss of privacy, the fact that someone is reading what we write every time we blog or they are listening to our phone conversations.  We accept cameras on our corners, rigged elections, never ending violence against women and children.  We accept constant rape and controlled wages for everyone except the rich.  People accept rapist priests and the suicides and troubled adults that are left in their wake. But no one would acceptance  a car with three doors.

See that’s what brainwashing is.  It’s making people ignore the fact that life doesn’t HAVE TO BE THE WAY IT IS.  It makes us shut up.  It makes us work our entire lives so that the rich don’t have to work at all.  It’s about things constantly being WITHHELD from the population by a few at the top.  That can ONLY happen if people accept it.  

Think about what would happen to the catholic church if people refused to accept the fact that priest, every where there is a church in the ENITRE world, never stop raping children. What if no one went to church?  What if no one ever gave them another cent?  Would they all just live in their big buildings and talk among themselves?  No…they catholic church would end and NO MORE CHILDREN WOULD BE RAPED BY PRIESTS WHO ARE NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE.  What if the people even demanded that the rapist priests go to jail for life?  What if there were consequences for their actions?  People have the power to STOP atrocities like this and yet, they do NOTHING.  People can change the world but they are so used to doing as they are told and covering their eyes that they ACCEPT the fact that the lives of children are DESTROYED by men who walk free to do it again.  As far as I’m concerned, the people who continue to support the church are as guilty of rape as the men who are doing it.  If a people accept something, they’re saying it’s okay. If they continue to support institutions that destroy children, then they are part of the destruction.  It can’t be any other way.   If people were against the raping and destruction of children, they couldn’t possibly support an organization that lies about it, accepts and allows it to happen.

ACCEPTANCE is a dirty word.  Acceptance is destroying our world.  Acceptance of the destruction of our environment can only lead to tragedy.  Acceptance of all the terrible things that are going on make things worse for EVERYONE.  It’s acceptance that is killing us, a little at a time.  We have to teach our children not to accept bad things, by words and example.  Bring the young to church and you’re telling them that what the church does is good.  If people don’t take responsibility for what they accept…we are well and truly lost.

Acceptance doesn’t make you a good person it makes you a slave and a pawn and that’s what we are teaching the next generation.

My highlights.

I think everyone feels this because we all came from someplace else and wherever that place is, we know it’s missing.
