It is no business of anyone if I believe in a God: I reserve mine. All for myself

Have your Gods. One and only or multiple. 

Let the people who need to re-read the Old Books for stories, which are actually happening everyday and everywhere, do what they please: I prefer to read fresh versions, rooted in the current realities.

Truth , or the illusion of it, is uncovered by getting engaged in the reality, with all its miseries, injustices, indignities…

Let people who feel this urge to continually re-interpret the outdated and obsolete notions in Old Books, abstract notions that you’ll never be able to experiment with and that you’ll never comprehend, do what they please: I have this one life to experiment with and a rich reality to investigate, at my reach everyday

The live-forces in society have challenges to tackle, and difficulties to prosecute, while still healthy and full of energy and curiosity…

Fictional abstract notions of the after-life are for the weak-minded and those witnessing serious degradation in their health and mind power…

The live-forces in society need to:

1. Confront injustices on all fronts: Elite rich classes of exploiters, dictators and oligarchies, totalitarian regimes, absolute monarchies…

2. Demand and capture their rights, civil, political, and human dignity…Free preventive health care, retirements, educations, opportunities to all…

3. Shoulder their responsibilities to the common good of communities…

4. Keep practicing their talents and skills that they invested countless time and energy to acquire and enjoy…

5. Keep acquiring comprehensive knowledge in order to make sense of books and be able to write interesting books…

6. Get engaged in social and political laws processes and ensuring transitions to government systems that guarantee free speech, free expression of opinions, free gathering…All the requirements of a Renaissance Age…

This is a one-life shot, and I want to live it. And I want to live what I desire in the living.

Complications, complications…a long string of imaginary complications.

Life is so simple though.

You are born by the fluke of an impossible series of events.

You get to survive to be 5 year-old, a miracle 7 decades ago even in developed nations.

Your mother survived your birth, a miracle 6 decades ago in developed States, after giving birth to half a dozen of “unlucky” babies who didn’t make it among the living…

A couple of suckers of parents think they ought to sacrifice their lives to take care of this “happy happening“, way until he reaches over 50 years, on account that a baby is a baby as long as he looks chubby, roundish, and healthy.

And the parents die.

And you wait the long life expectancy statistics to come true.

And other persons, not your parents, are changing your diapers and cursing: “What’s this piece of shit they threw my way to tend to?

They are exploiting my energy and hard work for naught: For negative results in performance, degeneration by the day…” (Fortunately, you are almost deaf, and if you did hear anything, you are in no position to confront the nurse “argument”)

The result of medications that extend life and destroy its quality

Not an elegant return of the cycle to childhood, by any long shot, with the permanent infirmity you are in…

And ultimately, fodder to worms. And “dust to dust…” and ultimately to boson, this utra tiny particle?

And you say: “How could you be engaged in the common good, if your outlook to life is so down right gloomy?”

And I reply: “A pragmatic demonstration for my respect of other people’s opinions, contrary to mine, in the notion and possibilities in the after life…”?

Heaven: Earth exempt of Religion…

And “Mon Doudou Divin” by Norwegian Katarina Mazetti

We are bombarded with religious expressions and causes for religious persecution, annihilation, and ostracizing behaviors.

I shortened this essay: I had to state my position on Religion, now and quickly…

Religion, any religion, is not worth the peel of an onion, or of any vegetable.

All these varieties of peelings that the religious clerics throw on your path, from birth to death, and we ending up slipping and falling in this calamitous world they created.

Religion is the worst catastrophe that mankind invented since rulers realized that mankind long for the Absolute and the Eternal.(See link in note 1)

Religion was invented to efficiently and absolutely control society.

And the institution of religion was tightly linked to the power-to-be, supporting and aiding one another for the control of communities, into total submission to the absolute monarch, emir, military leader, the highest priest, the lower ranked clerics…

And when rulers try to dampen the power of religion on the citizen’s mind and spirit, the religious structure counter attack ferociously: Many communities keep slipping on the peelings and civil wars ensue.  No institution will voluntarily restitute its earthly power, unless a substantial financial and economical advantage is extended in return.

Nothing ever came out of religion, and the mind of mankind has been dwarfed ever since religion was structured into daily rituals and customs.

Daily practices and training on rituals and ceremonies meant to nail down the habits of total submission to a set of abstract notions that never brought bread on a table or soothed by urinating on bleeding fingers… or resolved any difficulty in this process of survival to natural calamities, and human cruelties…

I am against religion and the concept of religion,  Period.

And I’m not impressed of all these illusions spread around that religion is fundamentally necessary for mankind peace of mind and mental stability

You do have a variety of faith, and not restricted to religion: A wide range of living according to sets of acts of faith. (Read link in note 2)

1. You have the “normal” and regular faith of people going about their daily rituals in order to fit nicely into a community and blend in and considered normal people who can be trusted to maintain the tradition…

2. You have “The Dog” faith of a person in search of a community, a pack, a gang, and constantly looking around for a leader and a hierarchy to blindly summit to…

3. You have the faith of “The Perpetual Kid” who needs the care and attention of his parents. The older they get, the more bigoted: The substitute parent must be an “All Compassionate God”

4. You have the faith of the Artist, a person willing to invest time and energy to beautify religious Temples, Cathedral… with ostentatious and fantastic monuments in order to attract faithful to religious gathering. Artists who sing, compose, and perform for the religious hierarchy. These artists are the preferred Idiots of the clerics.

5. You have the faith of “The Exceptional Penitent” who will never settle but to a compassionate God for forgiveness and absolution. Hidden crimes, real or fictitious, to survive this Valley of Darkness...

6. You have the faith of The Savior who cannot imagine a life without leading, a position in the pack that should lead to establishing a new sect, cult…

7. You have the faith of The Inquisitor who fakes Not to believe in anything, and tacitly doing everything to reach a situation of total belief in a “religion” and feeling in a position of answering any kinds of query and questions

8. You have the faith of The Idiot who long for the supernatural in order to fathom the notion of God and relying on his feeble mind to satisfy his longing…

All these examples of faiths are human characteristics and attitudes and are not necessarily related to a religion, but religion is an easy daily presence to cling on as a pertinent and relevant target to manifest our behavior.

Religion was a substitute to our longing for the Absolute and Eternal, and religion was structured to satisfy our longing and chain us as slaves for a powerful and lasting form of control and dominance.

Heaven is Earth exempt of Religion. As long as religion exists, we have to experience and witness Hell on Earth. Let us just observe and feel what is hell, instead of reading what hell would be like after death.

Note 2: Acts of Faith https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2013/10/28/our-entire-life-is-a-constant-stream-of-acts-of-faith/

We are born to play, to be playful…

All research in the animal kingdom demonstrate that animal learn to survive by playing among the members of their family, and games is the main medium for learning anything worth learning in life.

For years, we played in childhood. Playing has become our second nature.

We effectively learned what feels  good and what feels bad by playing, and what we are good at…

We played games in nature, we hided, we climbed, we fought, we ran, we shifted in the hierarchy of kids… We barely had time to daydream. we slept very soundly, and we didn’t worry that much about the next day…

We hated and reconciled in the same day.

We played, and we grew up in plays, and that was very serious stuff, and we bonded with kids and animals with simple words, simple emotions… Only to revert to the easiest of inclined paths at the first occasion…

You are now a matured person and we are told:

“Time to grow up. Time to shoulder your responsibilities, to earn a living, to behave as adults should…”

Easy said.

And we start bringing in and creating troubles, just to stay in the games.

It is hard to be ejected from a team, for being casted out, for one reason or another…

Somehow, to survive we manage to construct a set of daily routines, a routine that changes with turning point situations… Only to revert to the easy enclines

We are transitory, and yet, we manage to figure out the most damage to impact on nature and the environment.

We are supposed to be the figure sticks in nature’s background. And yet, we sincerely believe we are the master on this earth…

And we realize that life is a bitter caldron, and the older the more bitter. Life should have not be that hard to live. Just hard to die of old age…

Feeling uncared for, unappreciated… and we are ready to bring in external factors into the picture, in order to find reasons for our unhappiness…

We start building pyramids of abstract notions that have nothing to do with our survival skills and our community bonding…

How our mind grew obtuse and distorted?

I cannot claim that our current life-style of playing indoors and isolated in front of screens is the main factor for the ruin of our natural environment: Two centuries ago, kids played outdoors and in harmony with nature and animals, but this behavior didn’t prevent man’s onslaught against nature
