the big bang
the big bang
why others are so odd!
LORD, HELP ME TO MEET THIS SELF-IMPOSED AND TOTALLY UNNESSARY CHALLENGE.
“You can’t always tell about people by looking at them, or listening to them, or even being married to them. No matter how attractively packaged they may come, and regardless of all guarantees, various peculiarities will inevitably emerge to surprise, perplex, and frustrate whoever has to deal with them. Just why people are so odd is still a matter of scientific conjecture. Some believe it can be accounted for by the “Big Bang” theory, whereby everything in the Universe is supposedly becoming more distant from everything else, and therefore presumably harder for everything else to understand. This, however, would fail to explain how it happens that we so often, and in so many different ways collide with one another.
“I myself have for many years been seeking a safe structure from which to observe and report upon this continuing war between sanity and humanity. So far, I’ve discovered no more secure vantage-point than one which combines the architectural features of the Ivory Tower with those of a House of Cards. Perhaps some of the following … may provide suitable material for strengthening your own fortifications.
From the introduction to chapter IV. a “Sense of Human” of I FEEL MUCH BETTER NOW THAT I’VE GIVEN UP HOPE by Ashleigh Brilliant.
two opposing forces …
a brush with “June 13” of HAZELDEN Touchstones …
“Life is an ongoing experience with two opposing forces. One force is constantly building up, and the other is constantly tearing down. We have successes and accomplishments, and we have failures and defeats. We finally get our house in order, and it immediately begins to become disordered again.
“There are forces supporting our self-esteem and forces tearing us down. Friends who wish us well, goodwill and generosity among people, and the momentum of our healthy actions are constructive forces in our lives. Destructive forces are the pull of old habits, bad luck, accidents, and negative thoughts. We must choose on which side we will put our energies. Are we [specimen] who hate ourselves, believe in bad luck and despair, and thereby join the forces that would tear us down? Or will we choose to be on the side that builds us up?
You must fight off a ‘bad luck’ way of thinking as if you were dealing with an invasion of hostile forces -- for that is precisely what you are dealing with. -- Maxwell Maltz
It's always best to stay on the good side of a jinni, and there are ways to placate a troublesome one. M-W's Word of the Day for June 16, 2006.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91.
Eventually all matter in the Universe will be scattered ever more thinly and, as the stars go out and the galaxies fade, all will become an ever-cooling thin gas. Radioactive dating proves the age of the universe to be 600 gazillion years old.

Shall we then proceed on the basis of mutual intrigue?|

I have made a conscious decision to be on the side of an Almighty Creator (I may not be religious)...but having read the Bible more than a dozen times front to back...has taught me not to allow superstition...bad luck to rule my life...there are far too many cultures that live in such fear that it really imprisons their lives, their minds and their hearts. I am freed from such imprisonment..that nonsense....very lovely post...I am very glad to have found you and all because you kindly visited and left a comment on my blog...WOW...great stuff...real meat to chew on...|
