only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things. -Denis Diderot

Love isn;t a decision, it's a feeling. If we could decide who we loved it would be much simpler, but less magical.

If we were blind and had no choice, would we hate each other by the tone of our voice?

In your fear seek only peace. In your fear seek only love

“Sickness, jail, poverty, getting drunk - I had to experience all that myself. Sinning makes the world go round. You can't be so stuck up, so inhuman that you want to be pure, your soul wrapped up in a plastic bag, all the time. You have to be God and the devil, both of them. Being a good medicine man means being right in the midst of the turmoil, not shielding yourself from it. It means experiencing life in all its phases. It means not being afraid of cutting up and playing the fool now and then. That's sacred too.” Lame Deer

Wonderful...thanks idealist. I have actually had some very long philosophical debates with friends of mine about a line of thought very similar to this (it will sound like the beginning of a joke, but it was me - agnostic, friend 1 - Mormon, friend 2 - atheist, friend 3 - ordained priest). This just brings back all of those debates and discussions...

"Life is a game in which the rules change as the game progresses, and you have to know where you are in the game to know what rules to play by. Furthermore, you can't ever be certain where you are in the game, and the rules don't always apply." Brad Blanton (author of Radical Honesty)
