Why We Should Ignore Terrorists and Murderers

So I vaguely heard something about another shooting recently and kindly asked not to hear any more

Why?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but a lot of these people who go HAYWIRE and shoot up buildings full of people or commit terrorist acts do so for ONE PRIMARY REASON…

Attention.

Yup.

Consider those loooong manifestos they leave, or the nature of the crime, which is usually targeted against one specific group (a race, religion, age group, etc.) containing a statement in and of itself.

Don’t you think that most of these murderers weighed their options and decided it would be worth the risk to commit these horrible acts of violence? I bet you that a large part of that motivation was the infamy and public attention they knew they’d receive from the media and in private conversations.

Let’s also glimpse at the other side of the argument: What are the positive aspects of spreading this story?

  1. Remembrance of the deceased — but people die everyday and we don’t feel the need to know all their names and remember them if we didn’t know them personally…
  2. Awareness — though I think we’re all aware that these kinds of bad things happen by now…

It is my opinion/belief that if the cultural norm was for the media to downplay or totally ignore airing such horrible tragedies then we’d have much fewer of them.

What do you think?

God bless,

Religion according to me: GENESIS part 2

God created FREE WILL, because He has free will and he wanted to share that with another creation. He made the djinn, among whom was Lucifer, who was the proudest of them all. These beings were made of smokeless flame. Energy. Then God decided He wanted to create a being from a PHYSICAL material, and so He created Adam from the the wet earth. And then He commanded all of the angels and djinn to bow before Adam, His new creation.

Now, the angel have no free will, they are instruments of God’s perfect will. And so all of them bowed.

But amongst the djinn Lucifer came forth and in his pride he would not bow. And it was the first time anything had ever apposed God’s perfect will. But God gave FREE WILL to the djinn and mankind, and so He allows this will to be 100% free, for our God is true to his word.

But our God is also just. And so to appose God’s perfect will, which is 100% good and right, you have committed OTHER THAN God’s perfect will, which is 100% evil and wrong. You see, we are not robots, and God does not ask much or often of His creations of which he has granted free will. So then when God directly commands them to bow, they had better expect he means it, and it is with good reason.

For bringing the first EVIL into creation, now God curses Lucifer, henceforth to be known as satan, and a place called HELL is created. It is a place of absolute wrong and evil for those who CHOOSE that path of wrong and evil (AKA other than God’s will) with their 100% free will.

In his desperation, satan challenges God, telling him that man is evil and wicked like himself and he would like the opportunity to prove it before he burns in hell for all eternity.

For reasons known only to our wise God, he allowed satan this opportunity…

To be continued…

 

 

Why create ART??

I think EVERYTHING you do is art.

Now this isn’t one of those cutesy little touchy-feely mottos. Allow me to explain…

I’ve always liked art, drawing mostly. I never understood why I did it though, so I never took it very seriously. THEN I STARTED TO QUESTION IT MORE DEEPLY

What I discovered is the only thing that all the arts have in common, be it visual arts, performance arts, martial arts, WHATEVER, is that someone has to be expressing themselves when it is done. None of these things can be DONE BY ROBOTS. Even if a robot did it, the real artist would be the person who programed the robot. So I discovered that art is about EXPRESSION.

Now think about anything you do? Isn’t it an EXPRESSION OF YOURSELF AS AN INDIVIDUAL? Don’t you wash the dishes in your own unique way? Don’t you walk with a certain stride that is not like other peoples? Doesn’t your tone of voice and mannerisms express a DIFFERENT truth than those of any other human being?? umm… DUH.

So then in my opinion everything you do is ART.

When you are conscious of creating art in all things, however, then you become an ARTIST OF YOUR LIFE. One great thing about art is that it is beautiful and appealing to people. Why not do the dishes, walk, talk and act in a way that is the most beautiful version of your own personal expression? The other great thing about art is that you learn more about yourself from analyzing it. Your subconscious truths are always affecting everything you do. When you record something on paper or in video or whatever, thereby creating art, you also create a permanent record of your inner being. By studying its details you can know more about yourself.

Why know more about yourself? Because the more you know, the more power you have to be the person that you truly want to be.

Is television PREPARING US for the APOCALYPTIC HORRORS to come??

I try not to watch popular television these days, because when I do it’s sick. All these HBO vampire/paranormal shows and detective/serial killer shows that fall under the general category of DRAMAS. It’s not so much the twisted subject matter, plots whose problems are perpetuated by the selfishness of the characters, but the extremely graphic acts of violence and corpses that are shown. These images are often so detailed they are indistinguishable from the real thing.
