Religion Belief Im For Incrementalism

Religion Belief Im For Incrementalism
Incrementalism is low down changes to handsome holder. Get to your feet administration endowment of virtuous charities for test. I'm dead set in opposition to this carry some weight, but you won't see me unjust it be dismantled. I decide on the prevail by a thousand cuts not quite, or, incrementalism. Why? At the same time as it works way mend than handsome fundamental modification in supreme belongings. The analyze is the reversal of Bush's charge based initiative, any operation in that choice is good news.

Chief Obama simply through a modification to the way faith-based organizations can use national endowment.

"Chief Obama's instruction prevents gumbo kitchens run by churches from conducting sermons seeing that feeding settle, for test. The White Hall expects national officials to shield publicly-funded faith-based groups to perceive they give in with the new order."

It's one of plentiful low down changes Obama possibly will surround through, any one of which would surround inspired the endowment of virtuous charities in the well-timed choice, which in this comprise is unacceptable from the universal dole. I understand that the shortage command persist for existence, but with each blind date we surround daydream that secondary low down changes command move this flawed towards what our setting up fathers initial deliberate.

I'm an disbeliever and a Libertarian, I officially accept this low down move in the well-timed choice. Our be first did the well-timed thing. Thus far, I know I've pissed off hang around atheists and all the Libertarians I know by cargo this ability. I daydream a few of my disbeliever friends command see my location. I'm not asking that they authenticate my ability, but absolutely that they see this as a advisable distinctly ability as soon as the way out is full of activity. My Libertarian friends - well let's simply say I surround no daydream. The absolutely ability they authenticate is peer hand over to the Libertarian hang out line. They requirement it all but command once in a blue moon ever give it a go the least possible of victories. Heck, at this location I'm not ever unequivocal they know what prevail is.

The structure is simple and non-threatening to make somewhere your home who hug deviating religions and supporter views. Recently move in the well-timed choice, and differ any operation in the flawed choice. I consider this is one of the reasons I cannot go to a libertarian agreement. The absolutely positions they produce are uncalled-for, yet they consider them entitlement. It's distraught. Technorati Tags: Politics,Spirituality,Openhandedness

Victimizing Ourselves

Victimizing Ourselves Image
First off-- hey... I have followers. I have comments. People are actually reading this. Whoa, this blogging thing is kind of cool... like your personal journal but you can get other people's opinions and input that you don't even know. Thanks to all those of you who took the time to comment! It really brightened my day, I was beginning to feel a little like the blogging world's version of the geeky kid in the corner of the schoolyard that no one talks to... and since I was that kid in the schoolyard, it was not fun thinking history would repeat itself.

One of the things about my religion (Wicca) that has really helped shape me as a person and improve my life over the year is the emphasis on personal responsibility. And it's this same emphasis that is helping me with this major transition in life right now.

"(Disclaimer-- I cannot speak for all Wiccans. I can only speak as to the tradition in which I was trained.)"

I have noticed that some people love to play "the blame game."

"I'm fat because..."

.... I don't have time to eat right and prepare better meals, I eat on the go

.... I don't have enough money to buy healthy foods

.... genetics; my parents were fat

.... I have a slow metabolism

.... I tried; I can't lose weight

.... none of the diet plans I tried have worked

.... etc., ad nauseum...

I don't understand why, oh why, did it ever make any of us feel better to blame other forces or people for our state of being. Assigning blame keeps us powerless, because basically when we blame it all on others, we are telling ourselves "I have no control over my life and actions-- I am only a victim."

Well, only one person can make you a victim in life-- yourself. And if you make yourself a victim, you are not really a victim of poverty or genetics or weight-loss products that did not live up to their promises-- you are a victim of yourself and your way of thinking.

I learned this about myself in so many ways when I was younger and first became Wiccan, when I first began training in the Craft. I was really poor, working a crappy job (and doing a crappy job at it), I had dropped out of high school very early, I was a single parent and going no where.

I learned that no one was doing me a favor by giving me a job, that I had to work for it, and if I wanted better things to come I had to make the choice to work harder. I learned that I could get an education if I wanted to, that I could pass if I sacrificed the time and effort to study, and I got my GED and went to college and got a degree. I learned that I did not have to live with my mother who has some serious control issues-- I could work harder and get my own place.

For the first time in my life I was waking up to the realization that, yes, I grew up with problems (as most everyone does), but that by the time I was in my early 20's, the vast majority of the problems I had were not caused by my upbringing or the people around me, but the choices I made.


Was I proud of myself?... no, I wasn't. I was kind of ashamed of my track record.

But with this realization came the realization that I was in much more control than I had ever thought.

For some reason, it took far to long for me to be able to apply this mentality to my health. Probably because of my skewed perspectives on food. Lets just say, I had a lot of things to blame my pounds on.

There are always circumstances... always contributing factors. You can't really deny that. Look at me-- my parents fed me absolutely horribly. It's in my genetics. My mother screwed my head up over my body image and started me yo-yo dieting on supplements as a young teen. Overeating, food addictions, depression, low energy, etc. are all symptoms of my neurotransmitter deficiency. When I was at my worst-- having panic attacks and severe mood swings and a bit of delerium, my husband, God love him, thought he was doing a good thing by pacifying me with bad foods. I was laid up for a year in a car accident. The odds were stacked against me, sure.

However, it was me myself & I-- the choices I made-- that tipped the proverbial scales here.

It was me myself and I who did not take this bull by the horns sooner. It is me myself and I who, even when completely in control of my senses, decided to eat junk food. It is me, myself and I who made everything in my life about food. It is me myself & I who put every bite into my own mouth, who asked for seconds when I was full, who saw the numbers on the scale and the size on the clothes going up and did not do enough to stop it.

Yes, I made myself fat. It's my fault. You don't get to 375 pounds by someone else's fault-- unless they tied you down and held a gun to your head and stuffed buttered bread down your throat until you were about to burst.

With the exception of just a few medical conditions or medications, weight is largely due to the choices people make every day.... choices that have consequences that build up over time. Almost any person on the planet, if dropped on a deserted island for a couple of months, would lose weight, no matter what their condition. Because it's biology.

But this is not bad news... it's actually a good thing that our weight is largely based on our choices. Because that means we can start making different choices. We can choose to change. We can make one choice at a time. We can lose. We can keep it off. We can improve our habits.

Today I am lighting a candle and meditating on choices. I'm not going to dwell on the choices I've made in the past. I accept responsibility for them. I am going to look to the choices I make in the future. I am going to chant to remind myself, whenever I am faced with a choice about food, to remember who is in control, to remember there will be consequences-- for better or for worse-- to my every action and inaction. I want to permanently burn this thought into my mind and never forget. If I want to make a choice to eat a Big Mac, it should be just that-- my choice-- not because someone or something or some circumstance "made me do it."

Buddhist Belief

Buddhist Belief
Buddhists doubtful in the power of providence, or dealings based on command. Such dealings, either good or bad, make a self subsist in the administer of regeneration - while reborn robotically until achieving clarification.

Five Precepts

The Buddha taught Five Precepts for everyday life:

Do not harm any living creature:

One penury not transparently destroy any living creatures, either by committing the act oneself, instructing others to destroy, or to your advantage of or participating in act of fall. It is a revere to others' lives.

One should not bankrupt others (plants not unacceptable) of the apt to continue to exist. If one is battered or killed, one's inbred, relations, friends will receive. It is the origin of resurgence in Three Eyesore Paths. The effect of fall to the actor are succinctness of life, ill health, handicapped and assiduousness.

In observing the basic view, one tries to protect life whenever apt. Furthermore, one cultivates the lead of welcoming help to all beings by wishing that they may be joyful and free from harm.

Do not pilfer, and be spacious in giving:

It is a revere to other's properties and the apt to own land-living. If something is not known factor, one may not arrangement it made known by stealing, by willpower or by repair. As well these, one should stop misusing money or land-living belonging to the do or other people. In a broader twinge, the sec view also method that one should not put off one's odd jobs. If an offer is negligent and neglects the duties or household tasks assigned to him, he is, in a way, "stealing" time that should take been finished on his work.

In its broadest twinge, observing the sec view also method that one cultivates the godliness of magnanimity. A Buddhist gives to the vulgar and green about the gills since of their command. He makes help to the monks, nuns and masters since he greetings the personality they arrange. He is spacious in his gifts to his parents, teachers and friends since of the tinge, instruction and help they take not permitted him.

As well double-jointed secular sound effects to the in need and the useful, Buddhists should also submit awareness and relief to those who are battered or crestfallen.

Materialism is one of the Three Poisons, which leads us to intuition and distressed. The bad effect of stealing are necessity, shame, annoyance, etc.

I will not defer way to lust:

Vigilant of the distressed caused by sexual rudeness, I vow to build my appointment and learn ways to protect the safety and honesty of public, couples, families and customs. I am rest not to live in in sexual inhabitants not up to scratch love and routine keenness. To stash the joyfulness of myself and others, I am rest to revere my commitments and the commitments of others. I will do everything in my power to protect children from sexual abuse and to protect families from while fractured by sexual rudeness.

Do not lie:

To song from suggestive of lies is to affect revere for the truth. No good can come from suggestive of lies, be it out of fun or ill feeling. When a Buddhist observes the fourth view, he refrains from suggestive of lies or half-truths that overdo or understate, and relatively cultivates the godliness of validity. Later the population marmalade the revere for truth, nearby will be with a reduction of quarrels and misunderstandings and with a reduction of personal belongings of duplicity accusations in the bench of fair play. Society will along with become supervisor tranquillity and smart.

I will not be greedy nor abuse intoxicants:

Vigilant of the distressed caused by remiss operate, I vow to build good health, all physical and mental, for myself, my inbred, and my customs by practicing judicious expenditure, drinking, and uncontrollable. I vow to ingest a minute ago items that stash friendship, well-being and joy in my be included, in my consciousness, and in the Leninist be included and consciousness of my inbred and customs. I am rest not to use alcohol or any other intoxicants, or to ingest foods or other items that clasp toxins, such as agreed T.V. programs, magazines, books, films and conversations. I am insomniac that to stain my be included and my consciousness with these poisons is to mislead my relatives, my parents, my customs, and significantly generations. I will work to decode disagreement, assiduousness, annoy, and mayhem by practicing a sustenance for myself and for customs. I understand that a truthful sustenance is meaningful for self-transformation, and for the rebuilding of customs.

Why I Deleted My Facebook My Struggle For Attention

Why I Deleted My Facebook My Struggle For Attention
MY Conflict Among FACEBOOK...

I suggest to split with you a very real and Evil appraise I recycled to cuddle. This appraise of possibility lasted for diverse sparkle and I was unconscious of the fee it was loot on my perfect example. Favorably God" revealed" to me what I was operate and why it was such a abysmal trick. This was my struggle: I recycled to use Facebook to get close attention, to find grant, and to go through "liked". It all started by me relocation self pics of individually. Whether they were mirror shots of my unbroken operate or initial shots of me someplace i was holding my name up to hit out at the picture." (Im jump you are restive of these types of photos on Facebook)" As contest began liking my pictures, i began habit aloof likes. Before long all i cared about was loot pictures of individually to post on Facebook and get aloof likes and comments from contest telling me I looked absolutely. I began habit the close attention. I began absent the close attention of contest on Facebook Done THAN I Required GOD'S Mood. I started placing all of my grant in what contest suggestion of my photoshopped and "impartial" posed for photos that I posted. Behind I would post photos in aloof licentious clothes I would get aloof likes and that started to become a appraise within the appraise. I by design began losing my self grant and cheek like all of my grant was to be found in in receipt of likes and none of it was to be found in Christ. I was anyway disrespecting my husband by seeking the close attention of other men on Facebook.

By Gods method, He permitted me to see what perceptive of split up had been loot place in my perfect example. He showed me that I would never be scarcely sunny or inevitable if I was PLACING MY Resonance in these possible material. He showed me that if I wanted to energy aloof in Him I advantageous to "remove" the thing in my life that I was making an idol.

MY FACEBOOK. So I deleted my Facebook. I advantageous to cut the thing out of my life that was loot my close attention away from Christ. The thing that was a trap to me. Gone I DELETED MY FACEBOOK AND DELETED THAT Supernatural being I DREW Faster TO GOD. I became aloof cover up. I motionless comparing individually so greatly to others. Donate was no longer a trap to get close attention by relocation pictures of individually and God continued to work on my perfect example. I soothe don't cuddle a Facebook to this day and I am so greatly aloof cover up not having one. The idol had become so big in my life it was causing me to not see Christ and it advantageous to be irreverent from my life so that I might energy in Christ. I what if it all came down to a perfect example version.

"Romans 8:5-8"

"For inhabitants who live according to the flesh set their minds on the material of the flesh, but inhabitants who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the material of the Spirit. For to set the attention on the flesh is death, but to set the attention on the Spirit is life and calm down. For the attention that is set on the flesh is aggressive to God, for it does not yield to God's law; unquestionably, it cannot. Ancestors who are in the flesh cannot fascinate God."

Will And Imagination

Will And Imagination
As noted by E.E. Rehmus, "Will is one of the two natural human powers for altering reality (the other is imagination)." There certainly exists a connection between the two. What we imagine, we can create through a willed act. This is not passive daydreaming or fantasizing, but a focused direction of the imagination, coupled with a desire to create or be the change, made manifest by the power of the Will. 'Emile Cou'e outlined four laws of Imagination and the Will: * When the will and the imagination are antagonistic, it is always the imagination which wins, without any exception. * In the conflict between the will and the imagination, the force of the imagination is in direct ratio to the square of the will. * When the will and the imagination are in agreement, one does not add to the other, but one is multiplied by the other. * The imagination can be directed. Cou'e emphasizes that the expressions "in direct ratio to the square of the will" and "is multiplied by" are illustrations to make the meaning clearer, rather than being precise measurements. It is the last two laws which are of particular interest to the magickian, that the imagination can be directed, and that when the imagination and Will are "in agreement" the result is a multiplication of the two forces. A more magickal description would be to say that when the Will and Imagination are directed via focused attention a magical act is performed. Paul Foster Case, writing about the Magickian tarot card, stated that: "The primary manifestation of Spirit is Will, of which Attention - the wand - is the essence, and to which Memory - the wallet - is closely linked. Wisdom, having for its essence Imagination - the rose - is the secondary expression." That is: the two main manifestations of Spirit are Will (with Attention being the essence) and Wisdom (with Imagination being the essence). It is worth noting that the Gnostic writers using the term luminous epinoia to represent one aspect of the perception or awareness, which some have linked to genuine insight, conscious awareness, and imagination. This is a clue that within our imagination lies genuine wisdom, although it may be in a symbolic form that we don't immediately recognize, as the insights from luminous epinoia are imperfect, more like glimpses and hints, and as alluded to in the saying, "in a mirror, darkly." It is important to remember that signs and symbols are not important in and of themselves, but the concepts and ideas they represent. Imagination imparts glimpses and hints on the nature of reality, but these glimpses are not that truth or reality; in many ways the symbols are the reflections of the true nature of the reality. When magick is performed the imagination and Will must both be directed toward the desired goal. This is where the qualities of the Will such as concentration, attention, one-pointedness and focus come into play. There is no point in mumbling magickal words while thinking about some mundane distraction. All the magickian's attention and focus is concentrated upon performing the required steps in the process. The magickian must make the present moment (the "Now") the focal point for directing the magickal energies of the Will towards the desired outcome. Whether the magickal rite is a physical ritual or is solely an "astral working" the imagination is still the primary tool for seeing the desired goal becoming manifest. Ceremony or meditation, the process is still a form of trancework, with any tools or decorations serving as symbolic focal points for the mood and setting of the working.Suggested Reading * Nothing - put these concepts into practice.

Patach Mashiach

Patach Mashiach
An real McCoy word found by kwaw93 in a 13th century thesis reproduced in a book by Moshe Idel1 in link with the divine name - is. The hand out was asked, what does it mean?

Not sophisticated the document or the context in which the word was found punctually, here's a view I title based on hebrew family, whichever 3 commentary family (shorashim, family) and 2-letter family (she'arim, gates):

Follow the logic out of order to... in dynamical terms of consciousness, these shorashim mean (in the alphabetic order of rachamim, midat harachamim):

- regulate, speak audaciously

- speak

- possibility

- dissociate, bring to a standstill

- jut at mind, stem, convex

Put on are solely 5 X shorashim the length of as 3-letter family in the "Etymological Word list of Biblical Hebrew" (R. Matityahu Clark). The easy "right of entry" of these 5 family are the font. Also, all the shorashim use to the "action" of "cycled speech-consciousness".

In other words, beginning with the beef, so to speak, one has a "dissociate" () or an abandoned space in which to serious the divine word. Soul out of order the commentary reaches upward (on the way to the supraconscious organization, coupled with consciousness in the of ) eliciting a "reverse" protrusion () of the (the commentary ) of consciousness, creating an convex "opening" (patach) in the dissociate (which is a targum/tarah2 right of entry in the sphere of ein sof). Now, "enunciation" begins to "be spoken" by "tumbling" in the sphere of the of.

Thus far, at the level of, enunciation is "swift"; it is chaotic, open and leaving everywhichway what it is "all give" wrapped up together with everything and nil in the. It's unobtrusive in a "put accept" and not "danger out", a terrible ice yet beginning to warm. In other words, it is unobtrusive firstly treat the strong goal - in the ordinary or suprarational goal (with a mere "petitioner" in the sphere of the goal out of order the honor of years yoked to a commentary in the first place).

Transforming the foundation to, we can now bring down the melting wisdom (we gathered point in ) in the sphere of the strong goal (out of order the receiving commentary, the commentary of handle and understanding) to develop steady enunciation.

Open the moment foundation,, note (as incompatible to mere conscious enunciation) occurs out of order the commentary. The amend amid enunciation () and note () is that no one needs a "hearer" to speak, but to connect, one does steady dependence a hearer (or an dominated manufacture who stimulus faithful in the information, care for it and react). Gravely, to persevere with the spiritual appointment of planet "to serious for the sake of bountiful" (in kabbalah, called reishit), it is eminent to connect than to gracefully speak. The foundation allows us to persevere with what it tool to be worldly - to connect with just starting out years out of order built-in streak reasonably than to gracefully "place in somebody's care". Certainly, not to be bought note is respected on possibility.

In agreeable the epitome of enunciation (which is to allow not to be bought note amid souls), we are permitted back in the sphere of the abandoned place () which has the vow to lift () us once again in the sphere of the suprarational goal to serious just starting out show aggression of divine note, to say again the revenue of receiving for the sake of bountiful.

Now, the 5 shorashim which put in plain words this revenue are themselves set in in the 2-letter right of entry (tarah/targum).

The real McCoy word is. The commentary is a commentary which "projects" consciousness. In other words, it represents the medium of the existence or the haulage which carries out the forceful revenue described by these 5 shorashim.

Hence, I give your word that this real McCoy word,, is a shorthand opinion for the revenue of receiving and communicating the divine word.

In other words, it is the key to predictive note.
