Life isn't as they say one thing after another. In fact its the same damn things over and over again.
“A man should be able to build a house, butcher a hog, tan the hide,
preserve the meat, deliver a baby, nurture the sick and reassure the dying, fight a war … specialization is for insects.”

"So, who made up these teachings that so many believe are from a "savior?" Was it government leaders looking to manipulate the masses into letting them do whatever they want?

Seems like it with teachings like "forgive," "turn the other cheek," etc. What would a government like more than people who say, it's ok that you're screwing us, we're going to forgive you, turn the other cheek, and allow you to keep screwing us"

The point is that if you're always trying to find an enemy to destroy you will only end up destroying yourself.  Live by the sword die by the sword...  But that doesn't mean you don't have a right to defend yourself.

There is a time for war and a time for peace.  A time for love and a time for hate.

When the bell tolls three times, it will announce that I have been killed. If I am killed by common men, you and your children will rule Russia for centuries to come; if I am killed by one of your stock, you and your family will be killed by the Russian people! Pray Tsar of Russia. Pray. - Rasputin

William Law

Love has no errors, for all errors are the want of love.

Death is not more certainly a separation of our souls from our bodies than the Christian life is a separation of our souls from worldly tempers, vain indulgences, and unnecessary cares.

Honest Abe, could never tell a lie.

Long experience has taught me this about the status of mankind with regard to matters requiring thought: the less people know and understand about them, the more positively they attempt to argue concerning them, while on the other hand to know and understand a multitude of things renders men cautious in passing judgement upon anything new.

ST,
I wish I could claim authorship of the Abe quote, but alas I swiped it from somebody.

Re GG quote, Very true! I see myself doing that from time to time.

My mind has changed during the last twenty or thirty years... Now for many years I cannot endure to read a line of poetry… I have also almost lost any taste for pictures or music… My mind seems to have become a kind of machine for grinding general laws out of large collections of facts...

If I had to live my life again I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week… The loss of these tastes is a loss of happiness, and may possibly be injurious to the intellect, and more probably to the moral character, by enfeebling the emotional part of our nature.

The obstacles you encounter in the realization of your high ideal are not there to discourage you, but to stimulate you so that you will provide your fellow human beings with works or examples of inestimable value. If others do not recognize your efforts at the time, you must not be concerned. Everything you strive to create by means of love and light will remain immortal, and this is all that matters. Continue to advance, and you will sense that your difficulties act beneficially on you by strengthening your character. The more others try to oppress and constrain you, the more you must strive to become strong, full of hope and unshakeable in your faith. Sooner or later, not only will those who put obstacles in your path recognize you as an exceptional being, but by inspiring thousands of people to follow in your footsteps, you will be a force for good everywhere."

Glad you liked it...  :)                                                                                                                                      If there were no rewards to reap, No loving embrace to see me through This tedious path I've chosen here, I certainly would've walked away by now. Gonna wait it out. If there were no desire to heal The damaged and broken met along This tedious path I've chosen here I certainly would've walked away by now. And I still may, (sigh), I still may. Be patient. I must keep reminding myself of this

Another quote to start the day: Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of teachers. After observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” ~ Words of Wisdom from the Buddha

"How much damage is done every day as a result of the deplorable tendency of always finding something negative to gossip about in others! And newspapers, the radio and the television only amplify this tendency. What pleasure can there be in focusing so much on what is ridiculous, stupid or nasty? How can it be of interest to dig about in people’s personal lives in search of shocking details and then to disclose them for public amusement? It may seem of no importance, but it is an increasing tendency, and in the end it undermines a society, because it rubs off on the whole population. People vie to point out details, which they then exaggerate or distort, choosing the cruellest words to spread their gossip. Everyone has something reprehensible or ridiculous about them – that is nothing new – but why dwell on it at length? Society will not be any better for it. A sage tries to have a different attitude. He is not blind; he is even very lucid, and is also capable of criticizing and making fun, but he considers that the most important thing about people is their qualities and their virtues. So these are what he focuses on, and with this attitude he reinforces the good in other people and in himself. By working in this way, he is being constructive." Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
