I know how to say what I am



However, some pantheists hold that the pantheist viewpoint is the most ethical viewpoint, pointing out that any harm done to another is doing harm to oneself because what harms one harms all. What is good and evil isn't the mandate of something outside of us, but as a result of the way we are all interconnected. Instead of good choices being based on fear of divine punishment, it comes from a mutual respect from all things.

Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) established the formal philosophy of Pantheism over 300 years ago. In his “Ethics” he wrote:

Whatsoever is, is in God, and without God nothing can be, or be conceived. God is the indwelling, and not the transient cause of all things.

—Baruch Spinoza

Albert Einstein appeared to agree with Spinoza when he said:

I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals Himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings

—Albert Einstein

God does not die on that day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die when our lives cease to be illuminated by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reasoning. When the sense of the earth unites with the sense of one's body, one becomes earth of the earth, a plant among plants, an animal born from the soil and fertilizing it. In this union, the body is confirmed in its pantheism

—Dag Hammarskold, Secretary General of the U.N. (1953-1961)

New Years Day Today Sucker

Here is the low-down on the down-side of the up-side living of life ...

I haven't blogged because I am a "lame-e-ack". I am not sure of the exact spelling of that word as I am going to have to ask the creator, a six-year old with a creative use of words, how he thought it might be spelled if someone was using it on a blog to describe one self.

Life has progressed and transcended into a whirl-wind of awesomeness. I am more into this life than I have ever been, and on the horizon things look like a watercolor masterpiece.

I want to remember all the funny quotes the kids tell me when they think I am not listening, because seriously Jay Leno has nothing on these kids. I am going to start posting them as often as I can remember to turn on my box of info and input their brilliance.

I want to write about all the great things going on in my atmosphere with beautiful words that express the feelings running through my every cell. I have to remember to do that.

I am embarking on a self healing mission that includes eating healthy, exercise and love.

Life is good.

Our Leader Irks Me

So here is this great article on how gas prices could drop:

Key point:
Crude oil zoomed to nearly $80 a barrel this summer as traders fretted about
waning supplies and two big potential problems: tensions over Iran's nuclear
research program and Katrina-style hurricanes threatening oil production in the
Gulf of Mexico."

"But prices began falling a month ago when it
became clear hurricane season wouldn't be anything like last year. Oil traders
have come to sense, too, that all the saber rattling over Iran was dissipating.
"We got everyone leaning the wrong way," Beutel said.

Then Bush opens his ever widing mouth, and this:

On the sidelines, Bush pressed Iran to return at once to international talks on
its nuclear program and threatened consequences if they do

Speaking to Iranians, Bush said their country's future has
been clouded because "your rulers have chosen to deny you liberty and to use
your nation's resources to fund terrorism and fuel extremism and pursue nuclear

I just want it noted that, in fact there was foresight into what happens next ...

Reasons Why

I haven't written in so long
Not due to nothing to say
Rather too much all at once

Time needed
Sorting thoughts
Sorting angles and rectangles and rounds

Faster than I have ever known
Never have I known a love like this
So much that it overtakes my
Life, in which I know
This is
Is what it means

All those songs
And poems flowing with magic images
Ones I clearly understand
With clarity I have never known

So that is why
Now it seems as if I could not
Understand not feeling this love
For now, and always
I would do anything to keep it real
Here and now

I love how it feels to be swallowed
And can't breathe but suffocated in happiness
That feeling
That rush
Rollercoaster rush
With your hands in the air
No, not like that
That is mechanical
This is more
And sustaining

I love
Oh how I love
More love than I thought I could

My struggle is how to never
Get out of the clear cool pool in the hidden cavern
Never to get dirty with human dispair
Don't let it suck me in
I don't want to let it bother me
I want to believe

Please don't take it away
Is it bad to want that
Want that for the rest of my days
I want to cuddle in it
Wake up to it
Dream it
