We are an incredibly lucky species!
It is long argued that we are on top of the food chain because he have the ability to decipher choice.
‘Jung suggested that the memories and past experience of a man’s ancestors were buried deep inside his psyche (Burger, 2008; Feist & Feist, 2009). Jung called these hand-me-down memories of our ancestors the “collective unconscious,” which he believed was the reason for the universality of themes throughout world religions, mythologies, legends, and other stories. (Burger, 2008; Feist & Feist, 2009). The universality of themes also suggest that Jung was more interested in how people were similar to each other than what made people individually different from one another.’

It is here that I chose to become a believer and since have wrestled with faith and humanity…..eish and it is a battle! Marawe haibo!
Part of the 12 Step Recovery program is stepping out of DENIAL, making a MORAL INVENTORY, and ADMITTING TO GOD AND A FELLOW HUMAN the exact nature of our wrongs.
Sweetie, daaaaaarlin’, huuuuuney,babe,angel, captain,boss…..
Herein lies the dilemma….lol! Besides the obvious fact that I was an addict (more to the fact that amphetamines gave me energy to dance for days and thereby make “friends”, than the actual use of the chem’s did & the chemical psychosis was a thrill for my ADHD mind to play),(no I am not endorsing Chem’s…….I hate them with a passion but we are talking openly and plainly). I am gay. I have the ability to, sometimes, see things that others don’t like to think about and I am a darn naughty brat….lol!
What I am trying to say is this: being in a spiritual minority group, a minority sub-culture, and having to stare at others who consider gay weird and spirituality weirder, having to share my life story honestly….see what I mean? I would rather have sung my ‘kumbaya hallelujah’s’ doll!
Over the years, in and out of rehab, recovery and in the salon, I have heard thousands upon thousands of life stories. Have had to receive and give feedback; sometimes accurate and sometimes so far off the mark that one would think that another species of human lived amongst. Like seriously hun!
Which, neatly, brings me to the point. But first I must clarify.
I had an intriguing chinwag with a Muslim client a while ago who pointed out a particular scripture in the Quran. So I have been wrestling, praying and begging for answers from my HIGHER POWER. I say it like this as I am not GOD, ALLAH, BUDDHA,JESUS,YHWH,SHIVA or any other name we have for our VARIOUS religious affiliations. I have my belief which works for my understanding and I respect and honour you yours……please return the respect likewise!!!!!!
(I WILL GO INTO THE DISCUSSION OF QURAN 50:16 A BIT LATER)
By the way….my ADHD…..lol…..THANK YOU TO THE APPROXIMATELY 21000 READERS OF MY BLOG. I know that my blogs are flawed with errors but I am sure you are feeling the ❤️❤️❤️ behind my layman writing! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!! WOW!!!! INTERNATIONAL READ BLOGGER, this recovering addict and award winning stylist. DANG!!! THANK YOU! ( sorry to say, however, LINKEDIN readers, make up 65% of my readers….catch up lol.) thank u, thk U, THANX BABE!
Ok back to the point…..ok wait a TRUE STORY first…. regarding the point.
After reading , ‘Waking the Dead’, John Eldridge, I dragged myself to the Magaliesberg to meet God. It was an exercise of separating myself from my usual distractions and to commune with GOD. I eventually found an open piece of land, parked my car, and walked up the koppie. Because I looked back to keep an eye out that my car wasn’t being hijacked I tripped. I fell face first onto a rock that the words ‘JESUS THE ROCK’ had been spray painted onto. Yip, I burst into tears! It was like the world got ultra small and I could feel GOD smiling. I chatted for hours to thin air filled with a presence that is beyond logic or words. Since then, I have come to accept that we don’t need to travel to meet GOD, he is in us and all around us. RIGHT?!?!?!?!? I CRAPPED MYSELF….in a cool kinda way! I didn’t have a cellphone or a camera on me at the time so have no pic to show you….wonder if it is still there!….mmmm)

CLOSER THAN THE JUGULAR
In most religious teachings a similar concept is taught:
2) God is omnipresent
3) God knows us intimately
4) God connects ❤️ and mind (spirit to soul)
FINALLY THE POINT:
No matter what our individual beliefs are and we each believe we are most RIGHT; similarities prevail. So instead of hating and killing eachother for our differences, LET’S LET US LET THE MOST ACCURATE GOD DECIDE AND JUDGE!
In the meantime let us open our hearts and minds to OUR HOMEWORK.
OUR HOMEWORK IS TO ‘LOVE OUR NEIGHBOURS LIKE OURSELVES’
A VALUABLE LESSON:
The Spirituality of Being Human
1) ACCEPTING OURSELVES AS INDIVIDUALS
To do this we need to objectively turn every stone over. We need to examine what we believe, why we believe it, how we behave & why we behave this way. Accept our flaws and continuously and constructively change what we can whilst remaining, humbly, honest in our short-comings and being open to change.
2) ACCEPTING OTHERS AS INDIVIDUALS IN A TRIBE (WORLD) OF INDIVIDUALS
Very quickly we will see that most of us have a similar flaw…..we each want our RIGHT to be RIGHT as the most RIGHT. This single-handedly will begin the process, if we allow it to, to draw us towards others differences. None of us has the power to be GOD, but each of us has the power to let LOVE prevail in-spite of our differences.
WE EACH HAVE BLOOD THAT FEEDS OUR ORGANS……THE MOST CONFOUNDING HAPPEN TO BE ❤️ & MIND!
3) BEING A PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF THE TRIBE (WORLD) OF INDIVIDUALS
Being productive has less to do with being the MOST RIGHT as it does with putting our ego’s down to choose the most loving, kind and beneficial way of living that supports a sustainable and equal earth for EACH to freely grow towards the individual purpose they are designed for. MANY ROADS LEAD TO ROME and GOD whether you believe it or not, doesn’t need our help. He chooses to help us by going through things with us…….(we are closer than the jugular….he knows our days before we are born…..namaste)
4) LEAVING A LEGACY
This is the easiest and toughest one……will you be leaving behind hate, rape, murder, theft, greed, gluttony, anger, war, violence, bitterness and unforgiveness or will you be leaving a legacy of self-examination, tolerance of agreeing to disagree, harmonious ‘getting on with eachother’, loving others as equal to ourselves and standing up for ANY form of abuse that creates fear in another to stop freely seeking TRUTH?
NO MATTER WHO YOU OR I THINK WE ARE, WE CAN BE GUARANTEED THAT WE ONLY KNOW A TINY PIECE OF A TINY SOMETHING ON A TINY PLANET IN AN IMMEASURABLE UNIVERSE.
I have no actual evidence that there is a next, but in the meantime the experience of GOD that I have had, guides me to continually focus on correcting my flaws as HE guides me towards whatever is next. You or me killing eachother to exert power to prove our point will do anything except create hate and rebellion.
After 13 years of being a BELIEVER, I have yet to be told to hate, kill or harm another. In fact; I get reprimanded if I do have anger or hatred. And, for the sake of peace, considering that Evolution is maybe true…..we are all brothers and sisters. As for my sexuality and my faith……it is a battle that is tough. Do I wish to be straight? No! Do I wish to be gay? No! If I could have it my way….I’d rather avoid any of the argument of ‘sexual’ and focus on loving others no matter what. Until then what will be will be!
WHAT I DO WISH FOR….IS TO LOVE OTHERS AS MUCH AS I AM LOVED.
Your journey towards authenticity is your own to walk, as is mine. Finding truth requires constant stepping out of comfort zones.
Faith/ Economics/Governance of any kind was NEVER meant to be used as a weapon to create hate!!!!!
