Shopping and Debate
6/19/2004 8:07:23 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

Just another day.

Greetings Fellow Travellers.

The last two days have been quite hectic around here. Yesterday went shopping for Sheepskin Boots, as the weather is becoming quite chilly, and my feet feel like two lumps of ice. We also bought two new mobile telephones. Mine is so small I keep mistaking it for the Mouse, not only that, the color scheme is almost the same as the computer, so when i put it down I lose it.

Another thing about the phone is that I think I might need a license to operate it. Modern technology is not my Forte'. Luckily I've got Juanita to show me.

Today, i returned to the shop to buy more Sheepskin boots. the ones we bought yesterday turned out to be a bit small. So rather than take them back, we got bigger sizes, and gave the others to the kids.

Tonight I was going to settle down and watch a movie on the box. However a friend turned up to pick up her child, at 7 pm. We  ended up in a deep conversation about religion. Mainly comparisons between Christianity, Islam Judeaism, and the acient Eastern and Western beliefs.

At one time we touched on the subject of the similarities of the "Dying God" stories within differnt cultures, and my own personal belief system. A subject which she was determined to get out of me. She left at 12.30 am, probably very confused.

You see when I discuss these things, I tend to refer to the other persons belief system and teachings to illustrate the similarities. In her case it was her Bible. In all it was a pleasant, non confrontational debate, albeit she did start to come across a bit strong with the preaching, until I explained that I do not fight about Gods or beliefs. I do not tolerate the religious beliefs of others, I ACCEPT, that eveyones beliefs are equal to my own. That no one person's beliefs are better than those of others. Each is at a different level of understanding, and that no-one is either right or wrong.

If I were to insist that I were right, I am assuming that the other is wrong, when in fact we are both correct, in our individual understanding of how we view the truth. No person has the right to impose on another, their particular belief system. Because "Rights" are things that are imposed with fear and hatred.

It's strange how talk of religion can bring out the worst in people. They become defensive at first, this is followed by agression, when one does not either agree, or in turn questions the others belief system. They tend to take an inquiry as a personal attack. Which is why i am generally lothe to instigate such a discussion with anyone. Agression upsets my Wa', or personal Harmony, so I tend to move on rather have a confrontaion. After all, it is one person's opinion, against another, when it should be "Just a discussion". I believe that each person has their own understanding of their God, that no other person can share that understanding, or can change the other to their way of thinking. To take away another's faith is likened to being a thief.

On that note, I think I shall retire to my bed. It is now 2 am, and I am feeling somewhat sleepy. Valerian 200 is great stuff.

So until next time, I will bid you, Gentle reader, a fond and loving farewell.

May your Gods watch over and Protect you, and may Love be your constant companion as you travel on your journey though life.
