The “A” Debate. Again.

A question was asked:

If you believe we all have a soul, and an abortion occurs, what happens to the soul of the unborn baby?

A man replied:

The soul of the unborn baby will go to heaven, the soul of the killer will go to hell.Plain and simple.

I do not mean to cast stones at anybody’s religious beliefs but Horse-sh*t!  I do not believe in Hell.

I have lived through various stages of “purgatory” in my human existence. If you’ve gone through chemo or radiation, severe illness, chronic. never-ending pain….you have experienced Hell. Alzheimer’s is living Hell.

That being said…..All souls’ go into Spirit, God, The Divine, from where they came.  If the embryo is absorbed, that it a natural abortion; it is still part of God.  The soul rejoins Divine Love, it wasn’t its time to have an earthy experience. If a pregnant woman is injured, molested, shot, almost killed and she aborts, the entity of the unborn still goes back to The One. If a woman is raped, and choose, as is her RIGHT, that unborn will rejoin The Divine.  It is my RIGHT to make that choice.

A man can never know never, ever, in a million years, what that decision is like.  Never.  It is a gross presumption to think that someone who cannot get pregnant could comprehend that.  Never.

We are all spiritual beings having a human experience.  Some of us will have a long one, many decades, some of us will only have a matter of days or hours in finite form.  We are part of The Divine.

I know Ishmael: God within, God without.  My soul is prepared, how’s yours?

Artie’s Afternoon, October 2012

Elke: Busy day!  I stayed home, watching my eyelids…er, uh…the HOUSE and Brat Boy left me, the little creep, and went somewhere in the car with Mom and Dad….

Artie: I threw up in my crate….

Elke: This makes me feel so much better….

Artie: We got to the hiking place, and my doggie “cousins”, Oreo and McKinley

……and my friend Duds were there!  Wheeee!  We ran in the wood and Duds found some really cool smelly dead stuff!  Mom wouldn’t let me go over there!  I went swimming too, got really wet and shook all over Mom.

Elke: I’ll give you that, Ace, good job! I’d have done the same thing myself…..

Artie: Then after a long walk we went to Oreo’s house and I started to teach my one doggie friend how to play!  Duds was funny, he stuck his head in the doggie food bag!!  And his mommy said something so funny that Mom almost fell off her chair!  His mom is very cool! I’m exhausted!

Elke: Yeah, and you smell funny too!

Back Up, Back Up….

WE Have Been Warned

This is why you don’t go to internet phone, live completely through your cell phone (“my life is on that thing”) and you should have one phone in your residence that is a real phone, plugged into the wall, not wireless!  We’ve had brown-out before in the Northeast Ohio area, the East Coast has had black–outs.  There are hurricanes and tornadoes. If you live in a rural area, you can be without power for days!

Do you know how to look up stuff in the library without a computer?

Can you do basic math in your head or on a piece of paper?

Can you add a sale up and figure the sales taxes? Without a calculator?

Do you have a hard copy of all your email addresses and contacts in your phone?

If the web and cell towers go down, we “over 45s” will rule the world because we’re the only ones who were taught this stuff in school!

ALWAYS have a back up, hard copy of important stuff like contacts. Get an address book.

A Blessing

So often we see, hear and experience cruelty, injustice and unkindness in our own lives, never mind around us.

It is enough to make a sane soul jaded and embittered.

Never let it be said that small miracles do not happen.

I never in a million YEARS would have expected, more than a decade later, to find kindness, redemption, the truth about a very painful episode in my life and an apology (quite unnecessary, truly, but gratefully and humbly accepted.) Thank you!

I can only pray that I will prove worthy and that the creative Light will shine through me so that I may perform to the best (and beyond) of my ability.

I must have done something good at some point, for the good stuff came back ten-fold today with the words I received.

As I reflected on what I had heard, I got teary!

Blessings to all, esp. the person who gave me this gift.

I Can’t Make This Stuff Up #467

This is very frightening. Why do people say these cruel things?  Your God must be horrible.

Mine is Divine Love.

I always figured no human knows what or how long a day to God may be……

What does it matter how we got here?

Seriously!!!!

It’s how we live our lives now, how we become beings of light, how we have our unfolded human experience, how we express Good (or God) if you will.

I don’t think evolution negates creationism at all. Somewhere, in the great beyond, in times beyond counting and conception, there was Light created.

My God is Love, what’s yours, Paul?

Kelly Ripa and Pit Bulls

To Kelly Ripa and all fans of her show.

(And yes, I posted this on the LIVE Facebook page but no doubt it’ll get yanked.)

Ms. Ripa: You should not make blanket comments about pit bulls (or even that type of dog). It shows a blatant ignorance and an assumption on your part of biased, quasi-education.

Should we say the same thing about blondes, your appearance or your intelligence, you’d be rather angry, hurt, disappointed, wouldn’t you? Perhaps not, as by your comments, it’s highly doubtful as to whether you possess any of the virtues of basic intellect but rather an alarmist, punt-kick attitude towards dog related things of which you could not possibly have any reasonable knowledge.

In other words, Ms. Ripa, you be needin’ some educatin’!

Love, Same Sex Marriage and The Timeline

I got this in the mail yesterday.  Another piece of political B.S.  I almost threw it away but something caught my eye.  The word Marriage.

Now I am married to a wonderful guy, The Spousal Unit. And I don’t normally get too steamed up about Politics, which frankly bore the brains out of me.

But this one frosted my carcass, being a supporter of Marriage in general and Same Sex Marriage in particular.

I am NOT a fan or supporter of Polygamy, mind you, because it’s just not fair.  Until I, as a woman, can have multiple husbands I don’t think a man should be able to have multiple wives. In this case, what works for the gander should apply to the goose!

I am an advocate for Marriage and commitment whether its George and Gracie, George and Benny or Gracie and Maude.

I read this and pondered the unanswerable. How, pray tell, do “they” know opposite sex marriage has been around for 5,000 years? Exactly 5,000.

I mean, really, seriously, how in the hell do they know that?  Maybe it’s 6,000 or 10,000 or 3,500 years. Maybe it’s 4,892 years.

Really, how in the hell do they honestly know?  And isn’t one person “marriage” another person’s hand-fasting or “sealing the deal?”  Until quite recently, a marriage was a business deal.  Or if you were a woman, a way to get out of your family’s house. In many cultures and countries, marriages are still arranged!

“I give you one field, four cows and a bunch of pelts.  In exchange you give me your daughter for my son.  Ugh-wat….”

“I shall give you the province of Anjou along with lands, revenues and titles and you, in turn, shall wed my daughter.  You in turn, for this great honour, shall give me land rights in the following counties….” Etc.

 

“I, an impoverished European noble, really need some money to maintain my family’s estates.  You are one step away from Scottish trash who lived in stone huts but you have money.  I need money.  Therefore, your daughter or son will marry into one of the oldest, most noble houses complete with title which will legitimize your robber baron ways and make you socially acceptable in the highest circles. Plus we’re really inbred and there’s that whole hemophilia thing.  Deal? Deal!”

“After consulting the horoscopes of both parties, and making arrangements for bride price, jewels rtc. we have decided, as the parents, through a matchmaker, that these two people should wed.  Week-long party at my house.  You bring the elephant. Oh, yes, we might let them meet before the ceremony.  How modern of us!”

 

So this Love and Marriage thing is pretty new!  Seeing that it is a more modern concept, let’s be really modern and crazy and let two people in love get married no matter what their sex may be.

Five thousand year institution?  Really?  Where did you come up with that number; out of a hat, Bullwinkle?
