LEAVE IT TO PEEVER

 

Amen

 

– Bumper sticker of the week: I am a shameless agitator.

– Quotes of the week: "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."

   "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not so sure about the former." Albert Einstein

– Hillary should give up: She can't mathematically win. And she wouldn't come out on top of a deadlocked convention. She seems to have removed herself from reality. And no, she didn't have sex with that guy.

– Amen:

War is wrong.

Hunger does not have to be.

The rich do not need government stipends.

Love always wins out over hate.

It doesn't hurt to say you were wrong.

Revenge will steal your soul.

No one should die alone.

We are all brothers and sisters, fashioned from the same dirt.

No religion is better than the next.

Violence is a spiritually weak position.

A public servant should be just that.

We should treat the Earth like we would our mother.

In the end, it will not be fame or fortune that sustains you, but family and friends.

– Someone save me, if you can:

I don't believe God plays favorites.

I don't think God favors any particular religion. There are many paths to Her doorstep.

God has many disguises. One minute He's a beggar on the street, the next a brilliant sunset, and still at another moment a child laying in your arms sleeping. God has to be everything, or nothing.

The harder I look for God, the further I get away from Her.

Church doesn't have anything to do with God. Church has to do with man.

I don't believe in heaven and hell. I don't think that either place is up or down, or a place where we go when we die. I think heaven and hell are in our hearts. Part of our soul. I think we visit heaven and hell on a daily basis. A child is born; a loved one suddenly dies; a niece who graduates with honors; a cousin who becomes a drug addict. Both places touch us deep inside our heart and are an integral part of the human experience.

Jesus brought God to life, as did Buddha, Muhammad, Zoroaster, Confucius, St. Francis, George Fox, Lau-Tzu, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama. The Divine seems to come to life in some people, seeping out, affecting us all.

No one can understand God. If one claims to know God, you should run from them. The Mystery cannot be understood. It exists only in its non-existence. A person who claims to be enlightened probably isn't.
