“Priorities are something you are passionate about. You can volunteer in when you go beyond yourself and want more for society, this action is free. A desire is that which is inside you that is for you. It usually is incremental in you acquiring and trying to gain more things for yourself. As for people, there are no good, nor are there no bad people. If you are looking for working with perfect people, it does not exist on this planet. If you want to volunteer your priority, you will have to work with all types of imperfect people to get anything done. the moment you say someone is “good” or “bad” you have judged them.”
The previous notes came last night when I was trying to understand why the eastern churches do have a more mystical slant to them the western developed churches. I am not sure how or why this really all developed, perhaps merely the way western culture and society came about in historical times. The eastern meditation you see in Buddhism and other religions…is very different from the Christian approach. Here are some notes I found going through research that I took watching a guru talking to a large conference of women.
That was some insight into my quest for understanding how someone can go to church all their life and not indeed appear or seem to change if you just do “checklist” religion. There is more beyond that level, yet, we all are in different spaces and places in life. The amazing part, is that each gets to make a choice as to how you want to walk out your life? Perhaps that is the real beauty of “choice” and “freedom” that the west has. If you force someone to do something, they probably will resent it. If you give them a choice to do something…they usually will be very passionate about it.
a potential reality on the front side of changing something is best said in a mark twain quotes.
“There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.”
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
god only knows where that 10 minutes came from. I blame it on reduced sleep and freezing cold temperatures?
