The dangers of existentialism
Several notables in my life, some of my good friends, are existentialists: Dimi, Birmania, and Mariko. Whether they realize it or not, they are. Dimi abjectly insisted: there is no God, there is no absolute truth, and if there was, it would be unknowable. Birmania's version was: all truth is relative, your version of 'truth' is just as important/relevant as another's, we are constantly deceived by our expectations and perceptions. And Mariko: our 'state of being' is the most important factor, our environment / situation is irrelevant, and we must focus on positive things to avoid jinxing ourselves with negative expectations.
The Secret is a puerile existential video. Why? Because in its very first example: the 'stolen bike' scenario, it is both infantile and ridiculous. If somebody will steal your bike, your expectations have NOTHING to do with it. You bike will be stolen regardless. Of course, how fearful you leave your bike observationally might indicate to potential thieves your vulnerability. But aside from these purely behavioral antecedents, you bike will be ripped-off. No amount of positive thinking can stop the thief from stealing it. The concept is laughable.
Mandy is an existentialist as well.. She loves that video. She wants to watch the Bahai version of The Secret together. It about makes me wanna puke; sorry Mandy; not interested.
We do most certainly NOT create our reality as we 'move toward it'. It's like saying when a tree falls in the woods, it makes no sound. Of course it makes sound; just no one is there to perceive it. Course, if more than one person was there to see it fall, there'd be just as many perspectives as people watching. That's the problem with human beings NOT reality. Each of us thinks our perspective is the 'right' one: sure, the right one for US but nobody else!
Modern physicists are, by and large, existentialists. Everything is in flux at the quantum level. Our brains are 'quantum processors'. So we affect reality at the quantum level.. All BS.
Existentialism is nothing more than a clever disguise for Satanism. For that matter, any -ism is essentially Satanism: Americanism, any nationalism, existentialism, Buddhism,.. any detraction from Truth. What is Truth? God is Love; Satan is your enemy. Truth is very very simple .. As mentioned in a previous article, Mariko sent me a link to a video to watch made by her 'mentor'. Bla bla puke puke.. 'Gurus' are so full of themselves. Every guru wants you to believe they 'know the truth'! But alas! They're all full of shit! [giggle]
No amount of existential mumbo jumbo can give you Truth. Truth must be arrived at thru Faith. Thru the Holy Spirit. ^^ [giggle] (You 'love' it when I get on my soap-box, right? ;) Easier to 'shoot me down', right? ;) [giggle] Remember, I'm the 'eternal optimist'. Your negative comments and thots bounce off me like rain in a cesspool [haha] What a great analogy! ;) ..Our modern era is equivalent to living in a cesspool. If somebody 'takes a piss' on me for my articles, inevitably I'm indifferent and just plain bored. BORING. So why don't I just kill myself and save everybody the trouble? [haha] Why don't you? (This paragraph was only meant for the 'nay sayers', not anybody else.) BORING.
Negativity aside, from the depths of my heart, I truly love you dear reader. :) Whether you're a Jew who hates my last article (or 'Christian' for that matter) .. Love is love. That was the subject of one of my last letters to Mariko. She absolutely seems to love to put me in a box, label, and dismiss me. At this very moment, she's having a childish tantrum refusing to reply to any of my letters.. Grow up Mariko. Grow up / wake up world. ^^ Love love love.. Love love love.. God is Love.. Israel is a Satanic nation. America is led by Satan .. Imagine a huge oxen super strong and snorting thru its nose-ring.. That's America. Satan has a gentle but firm grasp on our nose-ring. Essentially, we belong to Satan. Instead of USA, it should be United States of Satan: USS. Hey! Great new name! :) The United States of Satan! And following us (historically): Japan (no wonder Mariko always plays devil's advocate with me), generally speaking the EU (tho they have occasionally acted like they actually have a conscience), who else.. The more I think about it, the more we seem to actually live in 1984. :( But remember, I'm the Eternal Optimist! :) “This is the best of all possible worlds, right?”
Please allow me to 'pray' for my 'enemies': wake the frak up Mariko, Obama, prime minister of Israel whatever your name is, Romney,.. Wake the frak up and realize you couldn't be more selfish and narrow-minded even if somebody paid you. Israel is selfish and only cares about Jews. America is selfish and only cares about our agenda (whatever flavor you pick this week is bound to be wrong). Japan and everyone else seems follow along.. Down the greased poop-chute to Hell.
Mariko loathes this kind of article (and the last one) because of several reasons: she thinks thinking about Satan brings him into our lives (more existential BS), we can ignore him into oblivion (WRONG), he's just a convenient label for all-to-human evils (partially true), and it's better to be like Candide declaring the idiotically blind statement above. [he] Wake up Mariko.
I absolutely LOVE to write this kind of article because:
you might actually LEARN something
you might actually find some Truth
you have a chance to actually WAKE UP
Mariko would love it if I just stopped writing this 'kind of article' but.. How can I? With her sending me videos of her mentor, calling me 'her savior' (in reference to helping her with studying wolves), then all of a sudden acting like a child and refusing to communicate.. All because I said she and my mother were inadvertently working for Satan when they dismiss my articles.. I was simply defending my articles and occasional need to identify Satan when he plays a card. ^^ Wtf?
If Mariko represents Japan, Mandy represents the EU (she's Brazilian-Iranian and absolutely HATES the current regime in Iran), my ex represents America (because of her staunch intransigent materialism),.. Our world is in pretty bad shape. :( If I represent the 'conscience of humanity', we're still on that greased chute cuz any attention paid to these articles is usually: “we now label you an 'enemy of the state'”. ~ LAME.
Crucify me; I dare ya. ;)
