What's sad is there are people out there right now that are afraid that they're not going to make it to the New Year...What's even sadder is at least one of them won't...Me? I'm just wondering how my TV got placed on TNT? I don't even do Drama.
An Arranged Marriage is a type of marital union where the bride and groom are selected by a third party rather than by each other. It was common worldwide until the 18th century. The same can be said of Arranged Religion. It is usually selected by parents and they are born into it and raised in it believing nothing else and never questioning anything. When doubting seeps in they may feel as if floating too close to the surface of arcane knowledge so they dive even deeper into their belief lest all the horrors foretold to scare them into submission and compliance come true.
I questioned anything that plays on the emotion of fear.
Personally, I have yet to find this to be true.
Living in the Bible belt, I've seen a good bit of this. I've wondered if people ever question why they believe what they believe, or what they're told they should believe.
However, I don't think this is always the case. For instance, I grew up in a non-religious household, but as an adult I became a Christian. Albeit, I've been told I'm very different than other Christians. I'd like to believe that's a good thing.
On the other hand, I've known many people who did away with religion altogether after being raised in religiously oppressive environments. Then of course there are those who convert to other religions strictly to get a reaction from others, granted I've found that these are usually immature teenagers and whatnot who are usually completely ignorant of the religion they claim.
Regarding arranged marriages: In many of them, the man can still have a say, in the cases where he sees a girl/woman he wants, and informs his parents/family.
The female doesn't get to have that kind of input.
As for religion...let's just say that if my views were out in the public (and some may be, soon), I'd be burned at the stake...even today, in the 21st century...lol
A real man would cut off any female that truly threatens his relationship with his woman. ~ Syvester McNutt
Many people of certain religions will lock themselves in the confines of their holy place and spend the last few remaining minutes of 2014 crying, screaming, rolling around on the floor, begging their God for forgiveness and to just allow them to make it to 2015. Once they "cross over", they'll prepare to depart their church and curse out the member ahead of them in the parking lot for not leaving out fast enough. smh
You ever wake up thinking awesome stuff and you're NOT bipolar? Haha!
No one can 'make' another happy. They can only create the type of environment that would be conducive for another to choose to be a happy person. One of the most hurtful feelings in the world is for a person to do all they humanly can to assist another in being happy and that person still chooses to be unhappy due to Depression (living in the past) or Anxiety (overly concerned about the future) or both.
When one thinks of "Female" one also thinks of "Emotional" which in turn equates to "Drama". Now this is something that is believed by a great number of "Males". I'm not here to judge, but I have been without a steady "Female" in my life going on 4 years and my life has been drama free going on 4 years. Coincidence, I think not! However, some "Females" can rightfully argue that "Males" contribute to the negative emotional side of them coming out which produces the drama that they claim they don't want in their life. This is not always the case, but as I said, "some" "Females" can claim that. Therefore, the SACRIFICE is to live single, but there is always a cost. The question is what is the cost? Another question would be who's willing to pay it? Additional questions are can Females keep their negative "Emotions" in check? Can Males "Act Right"? Maybe it's unrealistic to expect ZERO drama in intimate relationships, but it sure would be MATURE to try DAILY! My thoughts are to expect Drama, but never Tolerate it! My SERENITY & HAPPINESS above all else. I'll gladly pay whatever price In Full! ^_^
I define 'Fate' and 'Destiny' as something Negative and Positive. If something out of my control happens negatively, it was my 'Fate'. If something out of my control happens positively, it was my 'Destiny'. Therefore, each day I allow Karma, Fate, and Destiny to run their course. For those events that I can bring about an outcome of my choice, which will always be a positive one, I just called that me being AWESOME! ^_^

You're about as innocent as Bill Clinton's cigar at the Playboy Mansion. Hahaha
Once again I'm awake and once again CNN has failed to report it. So much for being "The Most Trusted Name In News"... Geesh!
One common theme I see of those that live a life of Hedonism is they elicit feelings of "envy", "hatred", and acts of "revenge" and "deceit" in others simply because of their lifestyle. Quite sad actually.
Evil is defined as profound immorality, wickedness, depravity, morally bad or wrong, that which causes harm, misfortune, or destruction, something that is a cause or source of suffering, or injury, a temper or disposition characterized by anger or spite, irritability, something which is offensive or unpleasant, negative intention, or conduct, lie, deception, an illness or disease.
The principles of Yin Yang teaches that there is always a balance in life. Nothing is ALL Good or ALL Evil ALL the time. The pendulum will always swing in both directions. It may spend just a little more time in one area, but at some point, it will always swing in the opposite direction.
I choose not to live a lie and in denial that I do not have a dark side that may surface under certain circumstances. I've made peace with the fact that I have a dark side. However, some people's dark side are darker than others. Those are the ones one must be cautious of. I do not fear my dark side. I tap into it as I see fit. I love the light, enjoy the dark and reside in the grey.
It is rather unfortunate that most only see and wish to see the extremes of this particular spectrum. More so when on is looked down upon for being at peace with whom they are as a whole, "good" and "bad" combined, as if it is unacceptable to embrace a darker mentality/personality with temperament.
I leave you with this blurb i wrote some time ago, because it is close in relation to your journal post and to share of course.
"White Grays to Black"
The Black and White of life. There just may be some Gray.
I do not claim to be a white Knight. I just keep to the lighter grays as much as I can.
Mistakes occur, that's where Grays take precedent. This is where White sees a serious problem
and Black sees very little is wrong.The Grays know how to balance, but only so much as where
they lean. Black sees White and Laughs. White doesn't dare look upon Black.
In my world, you Black me bad enough, no amount of light grays are going to get me to White
you. And so continue to claim that you are the Purest White, where My grays are Pitch Black to
you. Do me and Yourself the greatest White and keep away; because even the Lightest Gray, for
the lack of wanting to call myself White, eventually Darkens with enough Black. When that day
arrives, not all the White in the world will stop me from Gray, Dark Gray and Blacking the Clear
out of you.
There just may be some Gray. The White and Black of Life.
Hmm, it's almost 1 am. What should I do? Read, blog, watch a movie, practice magick, sleep, etc, etc.....So many possibilities.....
A ring may get one a 'Yes', but a 'Commitment'... only time will tell. ~ Lord MOGY
Well someone kept me up late last night chatting so instead of waking up around 9 ish, I slept an extra hour or two. The portable heater and my blankets were feeling so good as I lay in bed. So now I'm fully awake and it's time for me to get busy with Leisurely Living. It's a tough task, but someone has to do it!
Think I'll start with Lunch and watching missed episodes of "Constantine" via Verizon's On-Demand feature. ^_^
I support Sexy Narcissistic Females and their obsession with posting selfless.
Every time I return from grocery shopping and have placed everything away, I have to take a minute just to unwind. #TeamHappyNoMinorKids ^_^
I'm sure there will be a lot of wedding ceremonies conducted tomorrow for 12/13/14. I would gone to Vegas myself if I had met someone Awesome enough for me to want to change my single status.
Although I wouldn't want to be kept on Life-Support beyond 30 Days, if a family's faith and personal financial resources contributes to keeping their loved one on it for any time length, it should be their personal choice to do so. It is not my belief that the soul remains trapped in a body that is only kept animated by machines, but if caring for that animated body brings comfort to a family that refuses to let go, so be it.
I love blogging. Almost nothing is taboo. The subjects I cover are as follows:
- Spiritual Beliefs
- Relationships (Couples, Family, Friendship etc.)
- Home Ownership
- Gun Ownership
- Current Events
- Social Issues
- Health & Fitness
- Military/Veterans Affairs
I may not be an expert on all matters, but I have my opinions and 99% out of 100%, I'll have my facts straight before I post something or debate and issue. If I am not knowledgeable about a certain issue, I'm not too proud to say I don't know. If I agree with you, I agree, If I don't, I don't and we will just have to agree to disagree.
I try to respect all opinions unless an opinion to me is just too Bat-Shit Crazy to entertain further in which point I'll have to bow out of the discussion respectfully. Hahaha!
Why yes, I am awake again. Don't look so surprise. You don't know my God like I do. ^_^
Time to go purchase some type of cooked and seasoned dead animal part with a side of something that grew out of the dirt and maybe something with a high content of sugar. Yum!
There comes a time when one has to just show that they care. With it being the month of December and Holiday Cheer is in the air and all, there should be more love for man-kind. Therefore, I too will contribute to bringing 'Joy To The World'. Well at least my little corner of it. So I'm not only going to go among the Mundanes today for about 15 minutes....Wait For It.....I'm going to do the same thing tomorrow for about 30 minutes. And for those who may be local and reading this.......You're Welcome! ^_^
"Have The Day You Deserve"...
Often when I open my eyes in the morning from sleep
I'm just as surprise as you are my peeps
If there were a Heaven and a Hell
I suppose I'm too Kinky for a Heaven
And too Awesome for a Hell
So I'm stuck here on Earth
Trapped in this meat suit cell
Blogging about my life
What a story to tell
Once my gift of life has run its course
Don't be sad rather rejoice
For though my body may be dead
My soul is eternal you see
I'm again with The Spirit Of The Universe
Among the stars
Never attempt to place me in a box.....I prefer a Pyramid
I've learned to never be shocked at one's actions because one never truly knows another.
Some of my freaky female friends need to pay me a visit right now because I purchased a milk shake and have too much whip cream left over. ^_^
A few people who have not been added as my FB Friends have visited my page and seen the Pentacle symbol and the title "Warlock" and word gets back to me that someone's friend or family member said I must worship the Devil, which is of course a Christian created entity, without doing any real and substantial research on either the symbol or the title.
Well it's a fact that more killing, raping, hate and all methods of evil action have been done under the banner of the so called Holy Cross and the title of Christian than the Pentacle and the title Warlock. Oh it's true, it's damn true!
So when they see their Devil, he/she will inform them that not one knee has ever bowed nor one prayer has ever been said to him/her.
However, thanks for the judging....Point Made! LMAO!!!
One beautiful thing I've read about Satanism is that their religion accepts everyone and anyone. My religion does that as well, so I can respect that. Christians how ever.... Nope. Also I find it amusing that the portraits you see in these Christian churches of there Jesus is painted after Cesare Borgia. A bastard son of Pope Alexander VI.
Oh yeah, I have to go out today...I guess I better get out of bed then. Maybe if I left my home more, the world would be a better place. But there is a danger exposing mundanes to such a high concentration of pure AWESOMENESS! ^_^
Sleep is calling me....It's getting to the point now I'm finding harder to figure out which life is reality....I'm Living The Dream in Both! ^_^
The Christian friend who believes in Hebrew/Jewish Mythology prays to their God to save their sinner Pagan friend from Hell after death.
The Pagan friend who believes in Norse Mythology not wanting to be outdone prays to Odin to save their friend for Ragnarok.
Both of their friends the Atheist sits back and wonders why did Beth stab a woman with scissors who carried a gun?
♪ Say Something (I'm Giving Up On You) ♪
On second thought, don't say anything...Just get the F*ck Out!
At the point one is made aware of something, there is no making them unaware of it later. It is said we are destroyed for the lack of knowledge. But too we can be burdened down by the weight of knowledge.
I just finished watching the movie 'Four Rooms'....That had to be one of the all times craziest films I've ever seen....smh
I've officially changed out my portable fan for my portable heater...It's a little cool today...Just not enough for central heating.
GM.....I hate when a plot twist in a dream wakes me up...I want to know what happens next.
'The Pyramid' looks like 'As Above So Below' which looked like 'The Decent'.......Can Hollywood come up with any NEW story line concepts?
Sleep will not come to me. She will wait until the sun is shinning in the sky before she embrace me with her dark gift.
If Pretty hurts
Then Handsome aches
So why not take
Can turn to pleasure
I can offer you both
We can chase love
While still above dirt
I'll share my aches
If you share your hurts....

Whenever there is a he said she said claim, only a trial with evidence presented results in a determination of innocence or guilt. With the lack of evidence, an individual can make a determination based on their personal or professional relationship with the accused or the accuser, others can go on solid historical facts, but what should be absent is the characters played by an individual to establish a character image since after all, that is "acting".
I don't know for a fact if Bill Cosby is innocent or guilty. I don't know for a fact if the claims of these women are true or false.
However, what I know as fact as reported and never denied is that at least one female's claim was settled out of court and then continuing efforts by Cosby to bury all other claims.
We may never know the truth, but I do believe in Karma as well as conspiracy to assassinate powerful people's character. The energy and money spent by Cosby to maintain his social status as a man of good character has been and is being systematically destroyed. So one only needs to ask one's self....Why?
What is the point of assassinating his character? Legally he can't be tried because the allegations are too old. Even with a tarnished character he'll still be rich and famous and he will still have those that support and defend him, so why is this happening now? Is it long over due justice of a powerful yet sick individual or is it to bring down an icon that spent his life attempting to show African-Americans in a different light in the media?
If that latter, does it really hurt a people as a whole?
Things that make you go hmmmm....
Definitely makes ya go Hmmm..
And I'm with you,we may never know..but on the flip side,it also has to make one wonder,if the allegations are indeed false,then why spend so much money,time and effort in settling out of court,and/or trying to keep it all buried.
In the end,either way,the statute of limitations has expired.
