Addiction & Beliefs

“Beliefs are like addictions, and do not surrender their grip easily.”

-Micheal Talbot



What Does It Mean To Be Human?



“History has revealed too many people who have tried to be spiritual before they have learned how to be human! It is a major problem. Maybe this is why Jesus came to model humanity for us – much more than divinity. . . . Get the ordinary human thing down, and you will have all the spirituality that you can handle.”

What Are You Encouraging?



“Weeds don’t need any encouragement to grow. Much like our negative and repetitive thoughts they have a force and will of their own. This seems to be a function of our minds left over from the days of old when life was a lot more dangerous and difficult. Advertisers, news media outlets and propagandists seem to know this quite well and aim to play on our unfounded fears. These fears are nebulous and detached from any real threat, and because they are unfounded in reality, any slight mention of negativity will give these fears something to attach to and help justify themselves, though unnecessary. But, in the modern times we need not focus on the negative things so intensely seeing as the world has improved immensely, though not perfect. Let us give more attention to the positive and productive use of our miraculous and powerful minds. Only by doing so can we ever realize a reality in which we pay more attention to what is going right, rather than what is going wrong. When you focus on what you don’t want. you tend to get more of that and vice-versa. Our thoughts tend to become self-fulfilling prophecies. Let them fulfill something desirable”
