I once had a cat who loved being
Her eyes were much brighter fot seeing
She foresaw the recession
Though not the depression
If only I `d heard her confession

Looking over my life in books I see my instincts drew me with certainty to certain author/thinkers
The Psalms…King David
e e cummings
W H Auden
I see I’ve not found many women on this journey… they were too busy childbearing I suppose.
And I think of myself as neither male nor female.I am just me… a unique being.
If like me you get hooked on philosophy the NYT has many intriguing articles such has this one.
Is it the case that atheism will damage our morals or those of our children?Can you have morals without religion?Ethics may or may not need a religious base.Now Bible reading is diminishing is that leading to trouble?
Quotes tagged as “relativism” Goodreads
“Once I begin the act of writing, it all falls away; the view from the window, the tools, the talismans, and I am unconscious of myself… one’s carping inner critics are silenced for a time… there is always a surprise, a revelation. During the act of writing, I have told myself something that I didn’t know I know.”

After I mentioned the book by Lawrence LeShan yesterday I was thinking about meditation and about difficult times in life.Often when things are hard for us, we get stressed,we get the”fight or flight” response which released adrenalin and other hormones and we get narrower vision [I have actually had “tunnel vision“,it’s not a metaphor].We are ready to attack somebody or to quickly run away.Usually neither is possible so this response makes life worse.We get worn to a shred
When we need help,we can get in touch with something within us.The paradox is that we need to be relaxed to get in touch with this inner deeper self.We need to trust in something despite the dangers.In religious terms,trust in God is a common phrase.But not many Christians I have known really do trust in God.I prefer to call it the Unknown.After all,what or who was it that made the sperm and egg unite and then made the embryo grow into you?It was not by will power and effort that your mother grew you.It was by allowing this inner wisdom to act upon the embryo.So relaxing ,allowing,being are needed.How can we let go and trust in the inner deep self to help us?Maybe when we are in despair because we tried everything else and nothing works.This is a concern I am dwelling on today.I feel ,being Sunday,it is appropriate tio think of what some would call the spiritual side of lifeI was helped once when in a tragic situation.I kept looking for a way out.Sitting quietly one day I found I suddenly knew I could do nothing except return to my notmal duties and accept the tragedy.We need to feel safe in order to trust
