    Prove me wrong, I dare you.
    It wouldnt technically have to mean anything, nor just one thing.
    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...

    Of course - nothing has any meaning save the meaning we give things.

    But in the context of what I was saying there, it’s ridiculous for us to think that creating “imperfect” beings was the best that God could do. Yes, we’re limited in our understanding. But that doesn’t mean we’re imperfect. No life form is imperfect by design.

    Today I made my very first “manifestation elixir” - which is basically water charged with a person’s intentions (and optionally crystals) - in honor of the Great Conjunction. Let’s see how this turns out over time.

No matter what circumstances we face, no matter how powerless we may feel at times, we can rise above it all. And it’s not as difficult as we may think either, once we start to realize that we don’t have to go through it all alone. Because we are all connected... we are all one. That’s why having friends and/or family who love us for who we are has a HUGE impact on where we stand.

    Actually, a few looks into psychology/neurology prove that this statement is scientifically invalid.

    I personally see no need for spirituality in my life. There is nothing it could offer me that I am missing; or if there is, then there is nothing I couldn't gain without it just as easily.

    I suppose that what irks me about spirituality is that it's basically always just pure belief. There's not a solid reason to believe anything that is believed in. It's not concrete, scientific, or fact oriented. To me it looks like magical thinking and pulling ideas out of thin air.

    Prove me wrong, I dare you.
    If no one can prove you wrong, does it prove you right? Or does it prove that none of this can be proven? Can you prove it to be right? Seeing as how the existence of a god can't be proven, how can anything else pertaining to them be? Thus, no offense / forgive my honesty (I mean no harm and am not saying this with any maliciousness or attitude), but this is an odd statement to me.

    I'm not sure what you're referring to, so what you're saying doesn't make much sense to me, but go ahead and claim victory if that's what you're after, because I've lost interest and really don't feel like wasting any more of my energy on this.

    The last statement was more of a joke than any serious challenge, I apologize if it came across as otherwise lol

    Anyway, it’s not necessary for one to believe in a higher power for such a higher power to exist, imho. Most of my friends are atheists or agnostics - and it’s perfectly fine. I will say that certain experiences in my own personal life have been proof enough for me, but it doesn’t mean that anyone else has to believe in the existence of God/Divine consciousness.

    In other words: you can choose to believe or not believe anything you want to, regardless of any proof or lack thereof. It’s all right.
