Feelings~

I am releasing my archives. Cleaning out my Drafts. Some of what I have written has been directed specifically to my descendants and address things that were going on at the time I started processing it on ‘paper’. This particular piece was born out of a convo the Boomers in my family were having about our Millennial kids. As Boomers, we were raised by parents who rarely expressed emotion, compared with our children, who tend to express them exclusively. I worked on this one several times since I started it awhile back. It starts out as an emotional rant and gives way to something more rational. I cleaned it up a tad, but have let it stand raw and as is, because it is a live demonstration of my “process”.

Feelings.

Grrrr, Hisssssssss~

I love to resent them!

And in many cases, I might actually hate them.

They are such a fucking drag at times!! I hate the way they get in my way!!

I really REALLY do not like “feelings”.

If I could avoid them all together, I would. 

I probably would anyway.

Well…I might!!

Well, not really. Feelings can be cool!

But DAMN!!

From sorrow to surprise and falling in love, we can be completely held captive by these bizarre human sensory experiences that we have zero control over, as a lot of them stem from chemical reactions. We only have control over how we choose to express or contain them.

I know it is human to feel stuff. I get it. But as a WOMEN, this is magnified for me. We feel emotional things more. As a ‘hormonal women’, I  feel everything exponentially, right now. I am an adult teenager and I freaking totally hate it!!

Oh. My. God

(Grits Teeth)

What a curse it can be, to be the polar opposite of Spock!  Hormone driven emotional outburst are problematic for all gals, and it isn’t just a generalization I mean, isn’t that why some MAN named them, Whore-Moans??

WELL… IS IT?!?!

I literally have to wade through my feelings, to get reach rationality. It pisses me off that I have to go through all of that. Plus, it gets super challenging once every forking month. Given I have been challenged with a hormone based illness, it has been magnified to epic levels, of the worst kind. To the point where I can’t even stand myself, so I can see why others might have a problem with hormone driven, crazy too!

(Brad).

But I am not here today to talk about my feelings.

Screw that!!

I am here today to talk about YOURS!

So let’s talk about your feeling, or more precisely I want to speak to the generation that feels they should not only express them every chance they get, they make vital decisions based on them!! A recent search online says demonstrates humanity is leaning towards feelings being more important than FACTS?!

WTH???

GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!

While new scientific research suggests that emotions contribute to rational decision making, and indeed plays a role in epistemic reasoning, it does not mean we should solely rely on our feelings when making critical life changing choices.  From the pulpit to the mall, da man has been triggering our emotions to sell us stuff since the moment they realized how to pull at our heart strings. And we fall for it every time. Given this method has been used against us in every conceivable way, why wouldn’t the practice make it’s way into our educational halls.  Now we have the science to prove it logic sits dangerously close to emotion at the table of choices.

YIKES

But what does that mean exactly. Does is automatically mean our emotional feelings should govern our life, and trump the thinking of the rationally minded? We know that in the absence of human emotions, we have pure logic, as Governor. But that is the mindset of a psychopath. So do we want the purely logical calling the shots?

HELL NO!

That doesn’t ‘feel’ right!

We are more than capable of using both to navigate our lives! So we absolutely should. Feelings, senses, logic based on experience, all have their place. REGARDLESS if we live in a manipulative culture than seeks to celebrate one over the other. We MUST think this one out for ourselves.

So this is how I do it. This is what works for me and I am not alone. All the true grownups in the room, do this too:

I wade through the uncomfortable and sometimes extreme emotions BEFORE I make any decision, and drive…that is straight up dangerous. And if at all possible, I do so privately or in the presence of a trusted friend/family member. It is what well seasoned, people of maturity do. Basically, because we have learned the hard way, this is a better way of doing business.

Only a child mixes the two and shoots from the hip. I know this is preferable and far less stressful, because I was actually a kid at one point, who allowed my feelings to rule my kingdom. My life has become far less chaotic, since I have chosen to honor both feeling and thinking, for the valuable human resources they are. I am hoping my “grands” will be far more rational than their parents. 

Thank heavens, the pendulum continues to rock back and forth. It will eventually swing us all to something resembling stasis, as we evolve through each generation, as a species. As long as the “feeling” generation, doesn’t feel like blowing us all up, before then, that is!

HEHE

Haters are equal opportunists. Typically shallow, they always go with the obvious. Starts when you’re a kid. They hate you because you have glasses. They hate you because you grew boobs first. Or you’re  Becky with the good hair, or have a better bike, car, wardrobe than them.

Unchecked, these kids grow into racist, homophobic, ‘us vs them’, adults. Same mentality, same behavior, “tribalized”. The majority of it mimicked & fueled by a media that PROFITS from our collective human weakness & dysfunction. Perpetrating, until we reject & correct it~

But we can fix this!

If each and every one of us, would simply make an unwavering commitment, to teach our children to treat others with common courtesy. We can end this insanity & restore civility, in a couple generations~

And if we start right now, I’ll live to see it!!

I have always felt different than others. Not that I was special or anything like that, but rather  I always felt like the odd man out. Even as a kid, I did not buy into the majority rule. Not because I was consciously seeking to rebel, or be combative, but because a lot of what I was taught, did not seem logical.

Eventually, I unconsciously dummied myself down, in order to relate to others. This, coupled with a society that still did not expect much of women, made it easy for me not to apply myself further.

In order to cope with a deep feeling of separation from my fellow may, I turned to God. I reasoned, that God understood me, which brought me tremendous comfort. I was told that God actually loved me, so I was content with that for awhile. But over the years, and with my shifting sentiments about religion, I was unable to sustain that line of thinking. Especially because women were openly touted as “helpmates”, made from a rib bone & not equals

What started out as a message of love & acceptance turned psychologically monstrous, as it shifted into an under current of subligation & submission. I was decidedly not worthy after all, because I was not able to conform to their group think. Perhaps because, I was nothing like what the bible claimed a women should be.

I simply could not reconcile much of what was being spewed from the pulpit, with my own innate logic. What started out as a sanctuary to me, became a prison for my mind and I had to escape. Like I have said many times, I became willing to go to literal HELL, to find out more about this ‘intelligence’ that created this ‘zoo’.

Back and forth I went. In & out. Letting go of the programming was not an easy task. (A “program” I should add, I sought out for myself. My parents did not brainwash me religiously).

It took some doing, but I eventually broke free from the erroneous beliefs, based only on emotions, that enslaved me to the fantasy.

In the years that followed, I looked high & low for this so called, higher power. While I could always see the crystal thread running through all the ideologies I entertained…I never imagined that pulling at it, would unravel a path that would ask me to completely redefine who, or more precisely, what God is.

But I did. And I was only able to do so, by reason. Because let’s face it, There is absolutely nothing reasonable about a God that can create the universe, but somehow has a problem with an unclean woman, menstruating. Or a a divine entity that says do not kill, yet orders the rape pillage & mass genocide, of those who do not obey his commands.

Trust me when I say, love does NOT conquer all. Ignorance does. The gospel message of love is just a candy coating on a diabolical system of mental enslavement. It reduces humans to sheep, who chase the unseen, based on rumors of the dead. So yeah, need less to say -that did not work for me at all, in the long term.

Finally, after immense consideration & reflection, I have found what I was looking for. However most would be unable to handle the rigid and unbending truth of it. I was though, because it turned out to be so damn logical. An unwavering!

The true expression of God, does not resemble what we are taught in Sunday school , regardless of our religious, or spiritual inclinations. It has been hidden in plain sight, since before mankind ever walked the Earth. However, it is only through reason & logic, that we can access  the greater truth of this divine design. While words like omnipresent & omniscient certainly apply, so do the words, cold & calculating.

While I would love to tell you what I have learned, it is far too complicated in it’s simplicity for most folks to understand, much less embrace. At the end of the day, you must discover these things for yourself. Although…I will provide you with the same clue I was “given” as a teenager. This instantaneous thought, would turn out to be invaluable. Because when I finally arrived at the bottom line, it was woven throughout the foundation.

“I am but one equation, in an infinite expression, some call “god”.

The truth does set you free. But it is quite alarming at first, for those who have not been properly prepared. That is why, these things take time to reveal themselves to us.  Even if I wanted to, I could not get you from where you’re at right now, to my line of thinking in one post or pre-recorded talking points. It is so completely opposite of anything we’ve ever heard, that it’s very difficult to get our heads around it, even if it was handed to us on a silver platter. And quite frankly, most folks, would categorically reject it anyway, even though it has been proven, beyond any shadow of doubt.

I invite everyone reading this, to examine their belief system rationally. Be willing to   explore the nagging voice within, that you have ignored. Allow these uncomfortable doubts, to gently guide you towards the harsh Light of reality & the unchanging nature of the Truth~

HaPpy Trails guys!!

A world of Love?

Tags: , ,

Well this one ought to upset some. But I gotta put it out there, regardless. I am just thinking out loud. And don’t get me wrong, I love LOVE. This is just something I think needs to be added into our mix~

th

 

The worlds says, we need more love. It is what ‘they’ say, will change the world.
But will it? Why hasn’t it already? Are we not loving enough as a species, now? How can we love better? What kind of love are we suppose to apply to our retail clerks, our doctors, our lot attendants? The ancient Greeks had several words for love, why don’t we? Agape is unconditional, but is there a form of love, that has conditions? There sure seems to be. Most will “love” you, till they do not get their way.

The world says we need more love, but I insist, we need more rationality. And love, is often not very rational at all. In fact, it is a “feeling”.
I grow tired of sentiments such as this. It is yet another gross oversimplification. If love could heal all, wouldn’t we all be healed by now?
Surely everyone is loved by someone, so why doesn’t love cover all? Why must we remind each other to be loving, kind, considerate, tolerate, polite or charitable? Shouldn’t that be a given?
The majority of the globe, adheres to a “love” based religion or philosophy, and yet…here we are. Fighting over resources, garbage and gods. It just doesn’t seem very “loving’ to me. Nor rational. I do not understand this at all. That is how I know, love is not the answer.

Every human I know loves someone or something. There is a ton of energetic love floating around, so why are crying for more. Why is it, we see love as the cure all? While love is an excellent motivator, can love fix a broken economy, will love pay our bills, educate our kids, drive our cars? Will love keep North Korea, from nuking us back to the Stone Age? They love their country. But that love trumps a love, of ours. No. Love is not the answer. Even haters LOVE to hate!

I really would like to see us, move into a more rational and less emotionally driven state. Critical thinking skills are what will get us out of the mess we find ourselves in, not more love. We simply can not use the same line of thinking to unravel this knot, as we used to create it. We must find a way to work with each other, whether we love each other or not. We must find a way to bridge the distance between us with tolerance, acceptance & appreciation of those, who live & love differently than we do. There is no measure for love. But we sure as hell can measure how well we are doing, by how we take care of this planet, how we educate our kids, how we share our resources.

The world says we need more love. I say we need more rational compassion. As an action word, compassion gets stuff done. It isn’t like empathy, where you simply identify with the feelings of another, compassion is a solution based word, that has action attached to it. Compassion is a deep awareness of the suffering of others, coupled with a desire to do something about it.

If we were more rational. If we employed more logic, we could solve literally any challenge put before us, as a people. But that would certainly defy the plans of those, who seek to lead us through to heel, via our irrational feelings.

It is my hope, one day we will unify under rational compassion & change our world, FOR REALS~
