George Harrison

"It is one of our perennial problems, whether there is actually a God. From the Hindu point of view each soul is divine. All religions are branches of one big tree. It doesn't matter what you call Him just as long as you call. Just as cinematic images appear to be real but are only combinations of light and shade, so is the universal variety a delusion. The planetary spheres, with their countless forms of life, are naught but figures in a cosmic motion picture. One's values are profoundly changed when he is finally convinced that creation is only a vast motion picture and that not in, but beyond, lies his own ultimate reality."

George Harrison

I like The Beatles but you must understand something: the nature of infinity is that there can't be an ultimate reality, for there will always be some form of beingness in order to behold that reality and therefore the nature of something extant that can be divulged; and beyond that there will always be more, and beyond that more again, and that just goes on forever.

That, is why it is important to keep perfection scaled into your actual existence. Hence why it's important not to let the planet be altered beyond its natural landscape and so forth; for to ignore the abuses here and make excuses for them is no different to doing the same thing in some 'greater' reality outwith here.

Then, where will you escape to. Always having to make like it'll get better someplace else. That doesn't address why This is wrong does it.

And what if you were to go to a Heaven, and let the same decay occur, and it becomes as This is. And you just make excuses for why it can or should be that way. And then someone else there tells you, no - you're wrong about that. But you just ignore it.

The problem is that you believe This can be wrong. If no-one thinks that it should / could fail or contain problems, then it will not.
Making excuses for putting up with failings and problems is not the same as knowing they ought not to be.

Why can't you grow, healthily? In the right conditions, as a flower with sunshine, rain, and a mineral-rich soil, safe from being trodden upon, and in easy reach of others of its kind and pollinators.
Why must you manifest opposition to that.

Always nice to read a quote from George Harrison at someone's blog. :-)

zk, zk, why, why...

"but you must understand something"
"there can't be"
"why it is important"
"the problem is..."
"why can't you"
"why must you"

zk, it's fun to tell it "like it is" isn't it? But you must understand something, it's not fun to read comments that come across like they come from a know-it-all, there can't be constructive discussion this way, the problem is you state your beliefs in a way that is not harmonious with the spirit of this blog. Why can't you be more open in your comments, why must you insist on sounding so damn authoritive when your comments are usually beside the point or just out there. I hope you realized this was not fun to read as I used quoted expressions you use.

Let me inform you that your comments are filtered so please don't bother anymore if you intend to keep using the same kind of language. I check them whenever I'm up for a laugh and every time it's the same opinionated bs that leaves no room for intelligent discussion, of course combined with typical C2 agression because your opinions (beliefs) are not appreciated or - oh no - not responded too.

On this blog either adapt or die (be refused to comment). It's evolution baby. This blog is about deconstructing BS, not promoting it.
