"Genuine faith is living knowledge, exact cognition, direct experience. For many centuries faith and belief have been confused, and now it takes great effort and exertion to make people understand that faith is true knowledge and not futile beliefs."

When the demons hurts you with the most bitter truths
And the angels soothes you with the most sweetest lies

Which do you favor?

I favored the bitter truths
For in time I can grow into accepting them
Whereas even the sweetest lies I couldn´t ever accept
as they´re simply not true

"A kiss is a terrible thing to waste"

"I would do anything for love, but I won´t do that!"

"I´d lie for you & that´s the truth"

"I want you, I need you,
but there ain´t no way I´m ever gonna love you
But don´t be sad, because 2 out of 3 ain´t bad"

~ Meat Loaf

Brilliant songwriter ;D

Wait...I thought if you DON´T wear a mask and DON´T get vaccinated against covid you ARE a murderer and a menace to society...

You´re saying there is room for "nuance" on this subject?

That´s not what Biden and the media say... :63:

"It´s a magical thing, the guitar. It allows you to be the whole band in one, to play rhythm and melody, sing over the top. And as an instrument for solos, you can bend notes, draw emotional content out of tiny movements, vibratos and tonal things which even a piano can´t do."

The excellent documentary film maker Al Maysles
said it but I couldn’t agree more.

I had been thinking quite a bit about the lack of nuance in today’s world.

Discernment requires nuance.

Understanding the nuance of a situation requires time, knowledge and wisdom.

When I was younger I didn’t appreciate this. I was brash, rash and quick to judge.

So I have achieved one tiny sliver of wisdom.

You are so right regarding the Covid situation. Politicians, corporate media, many individuals, do not consider the complexities of anything.

Too many contradictions, hypocrisies, disjointed thoughts, words and actions.

Literally and symbolically the treatment is worse than the disease.

I´ve always liked seeing it too, but never formulated the words in my mind to go along with the feeling...

The first time I heard George Carlin say it, I was like, "oh yeah, right...I know exactly what he´s talking about!“

Neptune likes escaping from reality, which can be a real problem.

However, a glimmer of hope exists for the Neptunian person when they realize that "reality" is not neccesarily reality...

"Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the Gods made for fun."

"This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.
And instead of calling it work, realize it is play."

"The world is filled with love-play, from animal lust to sublime compassion."

"Society is our extended mind and body."

"Every intelligent individual wants to know what makes him tick, and yet is at once fascinated and frustrated by the fact that oneself is the most difficult of all things to know."

"Indeed, vaccines are not what is needed in order to fight against diseases. What is urgently needed are VITAMINS, good nourishment, pure water, and sun.

It is necessary to defend the organism; any organism is immune when it develops wonderful organic defenses. Let the immune system be fortified, this way vaccines will become worthless, that is all."
