The fine link at the bottom of the page...
sorry, can't figure that one out.
Religion, Spirituality and Deadheads
A photo of a spotted owl looks down at me from the top shelf of my bookshelf, the sky is pure blue, the leaves are bright spring green, flowers blossoming everywhere, someone just showed me a funny cartoon, I was just joking and laughing with some children and the sound of Dickey Betts guitar is coming out of my speakers.
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
marye, I couldn't have said it better myself. It's so easy and understandable to wander into other issues regarding the topic of spirituality, but that is no excuse.
"Believe it if you need it, if you don't, just pass it on. But talk about it here, and please maintain a safe respectful place to do so."
that pushing people's buttons and saying the first thing that pops into your head is disrespectful behavior and inconsistent with the goals of having a safe and civil place to hang out. There are plenty of places on the net that thrive on that stuff. This is not one of them. Particularly the spirituality topic.
It could more than reasonably be argued that bashing other people's beliefs while insisting on the correctness and Truth of one's own views in the matter is on even thinner Ice.
Some recent posts in these parts have not only been out of sync with the stated goals and groundrules of this topic, but with the TOS as well.
I mention this in passing. Please chill. Thank you. Taking off mod hat now.
You are indeed, and thank goodness for that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Think is even the first time have seen you question anybody about their post.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I guess I am too old school to enjoy 'pushing buttons' or dealing with people who do.
I am from the old school of acceptance and tolerance of whoever and whatever people want to get through the night, if your bag is pushing buttons, cool for you.
if a guy calls me a fucking asshole hippie freak, I say 'so what'
if people say blah blah blah, I say, 'cool'
I never say I am from America when meeting people in other lands, I always say I am from DarkStar. Where is that?? it is at the end of Shakedown Street, near Terrapin Station.
I am as loose as a goose, dude.
My father’s sides of the family are Irish. My grandmother is a Conway!!! I also have Carraways in the house as well.
CCJ, i am talking about a conversation i had with people actually from Ireland. Irish people=people from Iraland who i was getting plastard with the other night. This is not the first time that i have heard just how stupid Americans are coming out of an Irish person’s mouth. Actually they have a point because most Irish nationals work as computer programmers in the States or for American companies around the world because "Americans are too stupid to fill the job requests." Yes they have a point but after a lot of Whisky i just had to vent. Trust me i said my piece that night with all smiles and bad irish music etc etc. Please dont take me so serious as i like to push buttons somtimes and say what is on my mind without thinking twice sometimes. Shit losen up.
