What I like about Jesus

I am not a religious person per say, and that poses a big question as to what does it mean not to be religious, and my answer to that comes later on.

Now, what I like about Jesus is his character and the way he conveyed his messages through the gospel.

He used stories. Yes stories were the key point in the gospel.

You can understand the story any way you want, depending on your level of maturity, but when you grow a little more, you will discover that a story that you loved and advocated your ways, simply turned out to be condemning you and how you lived.
And Jesus conveyed his message by writing between the line, making sure that you uncover only what you are ready to understand.

I am sure that if the gospel condemned all people right on then it would have not been so popular. But ask the scholars the true meaning of your favorite story told by Jesus and then tell me if you still like that story that much or you will change your ways and learn more from its true meaning.

All in all, I love that technique of conveying messages, although the conveyer will appear as a kind hearted and simple person at first, but the more the audience analyze your story the more they will discover how much more you meant and wanted to invoke.

Disclaimer: In no mean this article is a fact in anyway, it is merly a reflection by a mere mortal. Oh crucial judging humans and defenders/advocates of Jesus: please forgive my blasphemy.

Hello, I love you, let’s get tested for aids

I heard this song time ago, but not all what you see and learn can be put into practice or be reflected upon immediately.

Let us get back to the title: “Hello, I love you, let’s get tested for aids”

So what does that title mean?

It means that nowadays relationships are shallow, and what does shallow mean? It can mean many things on many aspects and levels, but to be strict to our topic, it simply means that guys and girls just meet to make sex without regarding to different aspects of human relationships.

Is it worth it to ask why such cases happen? Definitely! But not today, not today.

Now is such relationship good or bad?

As usual, there is nothing “good” or “bad” by its nature, what makes it “good” or “bad” is how we apply that thought.

If you just want to have such a shallow relationship, then that’s fine, but what is also important is if the other person wants that.
And by “if the other person wants that” we mean that no body is shall be lured or tricked into such thing.

How many times a girl wants emotions, and a guy tricks her and give her emotions, just to get what he wants? Or Vice Versa?
So basically, that is not good, because each want a different thing and mostly they are LURING each other.

The girl plays all sort of tricks to get emotional attention and the guy plays his tricks to get his sexual attention.

Now the BIGGEST question, how would the person feel when s/he discovered that s/he has been lured?

Oh by the way, if you want to listen to that song then google for Weird Al.

Lassy and Big Joe

Here’s a small story / piece of reflection I share with you:

Lassy
As the sun rises and the stud officially declares the beginning of a new day, all the fellow chicken wake up to start all over, always grateful to their fellow cock who played a big role in their life.
Our fellow chicken, Lassy, is very religious and fears its God. For Lassy, being grateful to the farmer, big Joe, is something sacred. He feeds her very everyday, cleans the inn, hires a dog to watch over the nasty wolves.
Lassy never knew what hunger means, she always prayed for the farmer, who only wished her happiness and health.

Big Joe
Big Joe, owner of a chicken farm, is a very business oriented person.

He’s not religious at all, all he cares about is his big fat bank account, but on what account? (pun intended).
He hates to wake up early in the morning, but he has to, for he has good things to sacrifice for.
Everyday, Big Joe spends a generous amount of his time looking for the best food supplies that make his chicken fatter and grow faster. Big Joe knows that if he does not clean the inn, his dollars, err…his chicken, would die out of intoxication. And if he doesn’t enslave that stupid dog, he would loose his fortune to those greedy wolves. All what Big Joe wants is to see his chicken grow very quickly and have them slaughtered and transformed into money.

The Narrator:
My friends my friends, who’s Lassy and who’s big Joe among you?
Are you both?

Should I call it “Spiritual” Addiction?

We know that a certain addiction hurts but we can’t resist it.

He who smokes, knows he will get his lungs burnt out, but is willing to take another puff…
He who drinks, knows about the massacre happening to his brain cells, but longs to escape from reality…
He who loves, knows that his love is an illusion, but still longs for the lover…
He who over eats, knows that he can’t solve his problems by eating them up, but he wants to eat more…
He who gambles, knows that he’s losing his soul, still hopes for the best…
…….

Why?

The water of madness

A powerful wizard, who wanted to destroy an entire kingdom, placed a magic potion in the well from which all the inhabitants drank. Whoever drank that water would go mad.
The following morning, the whole population drank from the well and they all went mad, apart from the king and his family, who had a well set aside for them alone, and which the magician had not managed to poison. The king was worried and tried to control the population by issuing a series of edicts governing security and public health. The policemen and the inspectors, however, had also drunk the poisoned water and they though the king’s decisions were absurd and resolved to take no notice of them.
When the inhabitants of the kingdom heard these decrees, they became convinced that the king had gone mad and was now giving nonsensical orders. They marched on the castle and called for his abdication.
In despair, the king prepared to step down from the throne, but the queen stopped him, saying: “Let us go and drink from the communal well. Then, we will be the same as them.”
And that was what they did: the king and the queen drank the water of madness and immediately began talking nonsense. Their subjects repented at once; now that the king was displaying such wisdom, why not allow him to continue ruling the country?
The country continued to live in peace, although its inhabitants behaved very differently from those of its neighbors. And the king was able to govern until the end of his days.
