Mystical Quote of da week

Let no man endanger his duty, the good of his soul, for the good of another, however great.When he has seen the good of his soul, let him follow it with earnestness.

~The Dhammapada~

If only I had this kind of wisdom with I was engaged back in the day. If I had been in touch with the goodness of my soul perhaps, I wouldn’t have ignore my spirit to win the love of another. For years, I forgot about my needs, desires, hopes and dreams to follow another. So, now I meditate and I follow my spiritual path so I can connect to the goodness inside of me. And in the moments or days when I’m centered and feel the goodness and the peace of my soul…in those times I need nothing outside me. Then I know exactly who I am and where I need to go. I am enough then… I am good. And everything and everyone is good.

Mystical Music Monday

Words & Music by Leonard Cohen
As performed & Transcribed by Allison Crowe

Hallelujah (lyrics)

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well, it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, baby, I’ve been here before.
I’ve seen this room, and I’ve walked this floor.
I used to live alone before I knew you.
But I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch,
And love is not a victory march,
It’s a cold and it is a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, there was a time when you’d let me know
What’s really going on below,
But now you never show that to me, do you?
But remember when I moved in you,
And the Holy Ghost was moving too,
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, maybe there is a God above,
But all that I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you.
It’s not a cry that you hear at night,
And it is not somebody who has seen the light
It’s a cold and it is a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

 

If you like this blog.. You Can’t be president!

Can you ever be President of the USA?

Are you a Christian? Duh.. get to the front of the line

If you are a Mormon… Well, we’ll think about voting for you (if you don’t have too many wives)… you still love Jesus, right?

Muslim? Sorry we can trust you… you are just not Judeo-Christian enough. By the way, can I search you. C’mon! Just to make sure you are not packing anything!

You are Pagan/Wiccan? What.. that’s not even a Religion ( Source: George W Bush).

Buddhist, Hindu, atheist, etc? Look..you got to face it this is Christian Nation and you can’t uphold our Christian Constitution!!!

If you don’t believe me Just ask 55% of Americans ( who slept through the constitution part of History class) and John Mccain.

 

 

John McCain says(in beliefnet interview):

But I think the number one issue people should make [in the] selection of the President of the United States is, ‘Will this person carry on in the Judeo Christian principled tradition that has made this nation the greatest experiment in the history of mankind?'”

 

 

The Constitution says:

…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

John McCain says:

I would probably have to say yes, that the Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation.

 

Constitution says:

what… wait a minute. i didn’t say nothing about God or Christianity.

 

From Treaty of Peace and Friendship(between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary.):

 

As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,-as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen…

 

McCain: But I say that in the broadest sense. The lady that holds her lamp beside the golden door doesn’t say, “I only welcome Christians.” We welcome the poor, the tired, the huddled masses. But when they come here they know that they are in a nation founded on Christian principles.

 

Hmm… kinda sucks for us non-Christians who were born here. Guess no one told us ( like they informed immigrants) that This nation was founded on Christian Principles… Soon we’ll all be required to wear crosses(no celtic ones either).
