How I learned to Trick my Brain and Believe

We may think that we think what we think. But what we don’t know is that we are what we think. And what we think is not what we think we are thinking. My life has been so busy lately, … Continue reading

A Life Lived Upside Down – Tales from an Atheist Mystic

So, that looks like a great formula for being an atheist, doesn’t it? Most of the atheists I know think that if you don’t believe in a religion, you don’t believe in god. Like that is the only choice. Maybe if I hadn’t had such a wild and weird life, I would be an atheist. I certainly respect them much more than people who want to thump the Bible in my face or that think God wants them to be the next American Idol, or President. What moronic nonsense. Yes. That is judgmental. So set me on fire and toast weenies on me. Continue reading

Things About Believing in God That Don’t Make Sense

I live in an in-between world, religion-wise that is. Although I have long renounced any religion as having anything to offer me but a nice little mythology and an excuse to get and give presents on December 25, I have not given up spirituality. There is something out there, I just don’t know what. Continue reading

I understand that. Still, when something comes crashing into my life arena again and again to jolt my sensibilities, I know that I have to write about it, so here goes . . .

When the Moon is in the 7th House and Jupiter Aligns with Mars – Huh?

What would happen if the universe were really unbalanced? Heaven knows we wouldn’t want an unbalanced universe, the Milky Way might spill onto Canus Major (dog star) who would growl at Ursa Major (big bear) and wake up Leo the lion, who would eat them all. Taurus the bull would get scared and but heads with Aries the Ram.

The rucus would have the Gemini Twins running into the water for safety only to get pinched by Cancer the Crab. Then, Leo, burping and smacking from his meal would take a nap on the lap of Virgo, the virgin. Somehow, this would set things right and Virgo would then see that Libra, the scales had been balanced.

Maybe it’s Chronos’ Fault

Perhaps I’m just getting old but, lately, I care less and less what others think of me or that people agree with my worldview. What brought this about on the beautiful morning before Sol’s scorching rays gifted me with his magnificence? I guess it was Facebook. Someone shared an interview with Rick Warren, staunch evangelical Christian. It was all, “God is good. I give my life to Jesus. I know that all Christians go to heaven.”

Nice sentiments, and I will admit that it is a better message than “We are all sinners and the Devil is about to devour us for eating that cream puff” crap. But still, it rankled. I think the god Chronos makes more sense. His sentiment is, “Be true to yourself, whoever that might be at the time.”
