As you will already know if having read any of my previous posts, I did intend to stop blogging for approximately two weeks. However, Mr Midnight insisted that we write one more blog because of something being on his mind.
. . . . . . .well, they smell a little, are loud (often boisterous), hectic, not too fond of us cats, have disgusting habits, love complying to rules (human rules) and speak some foreign tongue (also usually quite loud!).
Well its very rare that I get frustrated about dogs because although I would not touch one with a barge-pole as I´ve heard the saying go in England, I do actually like our brothers and sisters. They were born under the same open sky as myself, have the same needs and requirements as myself and breathe the same stuff as I do. They have the same right to be here as I do – but they should just try and avoid being annoying.
Well I think that we should all respect one another, regardless of where we come from, even if that means ocassionally having to tolerate anothers ways of living. Just because we don´t understand anothers way of living doesn´t automatically jusitfy that we should craft false judgement.
In human words, we are called:- a cat, el gato, un gatto, le chat or die Katze.Human words for our favourite friends are :- un chien, un cane, el perro, a dog or Der Hund.
Notice how harmonious the words for cats appear. They are nearly all the same. Poor dogs have to make do with all sorts of concoctions for titles.
At least Mr Midnight and yourself Sir Winston, act and “think” from your own experience, as do all other beings. We humans will also act based upon our own experience but we also rely heavily upon what others in times past have dictated as to being called the truth and what the majority living in our present surroundings find to be acceptable.
Unfortunately, I think it does. There are some who go on the journey of attempting to discover their own truth but the large majority, appear to be conveniently satisfied adhering to anothers voice as to being their truth. I may be wrong in my perception though. If my statement was true, one must still accept and respect their opinion of not wishing to look for their own truth.
I have heard that it is accepted by humans to go looking for reassurance by blindly sending out wishes into the universe and hoping for an answer from something high and mighty. If this helps, one should definetly do this, but what if the answers to life lay not in the vastness of the macrocosm but also, in the vastness of the microcosm.
Humans tend to be of the opinion that the larger a thing is, then the greater it is, but the microcosm is just as vast as the macrocosm. Many truths to life may lie buried within each one of you. Your God may be inside you, in your soul, all the time. One would then not need to send things out into the vastness when what one seeks already lays within your soul.
The other day, the news showed demonstrators in a place called Paris, complaining about same-sex marriages. In my country, people in high positions, as well as demonstrators, showed the same fears by wanting to “protect the institution called marriage”. If wishing to protect something then it must be under attack. Speaking only as a cat; there is absolutely no reason why one should have to “protect” marriage by wanting to ban such a possibility for all to be fairly wed if they need be.
Intolerence is bred on fear and will quickly erase respect. The fears aroused by the same-sex marriage debates commenced in many peoples own heads and were based on experience, lack of proper information and others past beliefs.
Fear is usually, selfmade, and is often fuelled by others who gain an advantage out of maintaining that fear.
I suppose that it is because most of us have been brought-up the way we have. We cannot know any better. Even at school we are taught that the beast, Satan, will take us if we do not adhere to our society´s muster.
Some Christian leaders tried to “expose the anti-christ” by using a formula to calculate numbers for names and titles.
Every letter receives the number “6” and is added to the next letter, thus; A=6, B=12, C= 18, etc. The sum of all number will be the numeric value of a name or title. An Evangelist noted that Mark of Beast is 78,6,108,66,90,36,12,30,6, 114 and 120 = 666.
The calculation is true but irrelevant.
Try using the words. COMPUTER = 18,90,78,96,126,120,30,108 = 666
HUMANITY = 48,126,84,6,78,54,120,150 = 666
WITCHCRAFT = 138,54,120,18,48,18,108,6,36,120 = 666
GOD OF ISRAEL = 42,90,24,90,36,54,114,108,6,30,72 = 666
What does all this prove?
We obviously like to believe that what somebody(or authority) has told us to be true, that this is the real truth.
One should tolerate and respect anothers views by keeping an open mind but should one not also attempt to discover ones own truths?
It´s now time for lunch, and then I think I´m going to go and look for a barge-pole. 🙂
