    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.
    Ohhhh ok, sorry, I didn't catch on to the lighthearted tone via text. Sorry!

    Yeah, I know that kind of faith works for some people, but that's not really what I was saying though, I was just saying no one can prove you wrong but that doesn't mean it's proven right. Which you've clarified was lighthearted.

    I'm not interested in "winning" when I speak on anything. I'm just characteristically blunt, candid, and open to discussing things objectively, but it's two sided. In other words, I would not be offended or defensive had the situation been reversed, as I do not mind being told that some information I'm speaking on is inaccurate. Accuracies and inaccuracies say nothing about an individual. Thus, I derive nothing from a sense of "winning," as I am not interested in proving I'm right, there is no sense of pride when being accurate says nothing about an individual; I'm only interested in being right, as in accurate, which sometimes means saying I am wrong. Nobody knows everything. I'm only interested in truth/accuracy for the sake of truth/accuracy. I tend to be rather impersonal and impartial in things like this.

    I would clarify, but you've said you're not interested, so...enjoy the rest of your day/night.

    I wonder if there’s a way to send a tiny bit of my energy to the near future - say, exactly a year from now - and then call it back to myself. I’m going to test this theory today.

    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...

    I wonder how many / if any of my friends i have known in previous lives.

    i also wonder if one's gender identity is at all linked to previous lives.

    I have been wondering the same thing, assuming past lives are even real. It would explain alot.

    I think it was a moral violation to sentence Aileen Wuornos to death, although complicated by the fact she was pushing for it. They had to let her pass a psych evaluation the day before. She was clearly not fit to stand trial and was criminally insane. My heart breaks for her on one level, while acknowledging that she did cause suffering. Mental illness needs to be understood and addressed in society.

    I wish I was on yonder hill 'tis there I'd sit and cry my fill, And every tear would turn a mill, Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.
    I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel, I'll sell my only spinning wheel, To buy my love a sword of steel Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.
    I wish, I wish, I wish in vain, I wish I had my heart again, And vainly think I'd not complain, Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.
