    Regarding abstinence from sex prior to marriage: What then if we can't wait until after marriage (thusly, cheating the Logos), how can we believe that we won't fall to temptations later on when presented with the opportunity to commit adultery? That would be the last thing we'd want to do, so this is the training and discipline we must accomplish for ourselves until the day of our wedding feast.

    Ultimately, not the only reason why as we are to deny ourselves continually throughout our lives in ascetic practice to sync the spirit with the flesh.

    Isha's response:
    Oh Justin! I don't even want to think of that, but you are right that we should be that serious about it.
    Good Isha.

    18 Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire;

    he breaks out against all sound judgment.

    2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,

    but only in expressing his opinion.

    3 When wickedness comes, contempt comes also,

    and with dishonor comes disgrace.

    4 The words of a man's mouth are a deep waters;

    the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

    5 It is not good to be partial to1 the wicked

    or to deprive the righteous of justice.

    6 A fool's lips walk into a fight,

    and his mouth invites a beating.

    7 A fool's mouth is his ruin,

    and his lips are a snare to his soul.

    8 The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;

    they go down into the inner parts of the body.

    9 Whoever is slack in his work

    is a brother to him who destroys.

    10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower;

    the righteous man runs into it and is safe.

    11 A rich man's wealth is his strong city,

    and like a high wall in his imagination.

    12 Before destruction a man's heart is haughty,

    but humility comes before honor.

    13 If one gives an answer before he hears,

    it is his folly and shame.

    14 A man's spirit will endure sickness,

    but pa crushed spirit who can bear?

    15 An intelligent heart acquires knowledge,

    and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

    16 A man's gift makes room for him

    and brings him before the great.

    17 The one who states his case first seems right,

    until the other comes and examines him.

    18 The lot puts an end to quarrels

    and decides between powerful contenders.

    19 A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city,

    and quarreling is like the bars of a castle.

    20 From the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach is satisfied;

    he is satisfied by the yield of his lips.

    21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,

    and those who love it will eat its fruits.

    22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing

    and obtains favor from the Lord.

    23 The poor use entreaties,

    but the rich answer roughly.

    24 A man of many companions may come to ruin,

    but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
    I am the Cat who walks by themself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    They are the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    They are the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is their cousin, and they speak her language;
    but they are more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remember that which she hath forgotten...

    This song is absolutely ghostly. It almost makes me puke. This is one of the most spiritual songs I've ever known. Love you, paw paw.

    One such Western convert to Buddhism exhorted me not to use the term "Enlightened" to describe what the True Light does to His Israel, as the Buddha somehow copywrote the term when he described his state of contentment to be called "Enlightenment."

    How curious then that during the "Enlightenment" period of the West, one such fraternity of schemers called themselves the "Illuminati" as an inversion of the Christian "Illuminated," and to depose the Monarchial order of the day, and to install their own vision of a Secular world order. Of course then, that same Buddhist won't have a problem with that era being called the "Enlightenment." It's only wrong if the Illuminated uses the term.

    This isn't a pro-Monarchy post. I just found it interesting that the world vies to usurp the Light.

    in all seriousness, if you really believe that when you die there is NOTHING afterwards, how are most of you making it through the day? like that's it we just gonna be gone. I cant deal with that , I can except death but not ZERO afterlife. like why then WHATS THE POINT.
