0 GOD vs. NOT GOD??

God doesn't give you more than you can handle. What a creakily hoarse shit..
If something good happens it is Gods work. Something negative and it is the human race that are corrupt and flawed.
If God is real, and he made us in his image. than he is a very flawed man himself or woman.
I will also claim that we are defective.
All we do is kill each other for money and power... Did he ever try to send us back

0 Manipulate.. the truth..

When it is ok to manipulate?? I call it that for this this entry, but influence is in the same family!
In order to get a better job? higher salary? more helpful husband? friends, family, colleagues? doctors, nurses?
Do we not manipulate us through the day?
I don't like to admit it, but I do it because sometimes it is easier to get things done, but I mean no harm, at least now knowingly..

But who decides when it is morally right to use manipulate? Jesus? NAV? Politicians ? The King?
Politicians are the biggest manipulator available. They are willing to sell their souls to get elected to parliament. The royals talk so much of tradition and the kingdom, but when their people are starving, and out of a job, they  are buying couture fashion.
Manipulators can be people that have the intention of hurting you, but it is not them I am thinking about.
Its the more knowingly form of social influence manipulation I am thinking of.

We talk about the negatives side of manipulation, an only really bad people are using it. It a curse word when you want to make someone feel bad for sharing their innermost hidden thoughts. But I think we all do it, when we really want that job, or a new handbag, I have on several occasions actually manipulated myself into buying shoes.how bright is that?? making me belive I really need it.
And that goes with doctors to.. I know now what they want to hear, so I know what to say, so I will increase my chances of getting help.. But honestly, who wouldn't? For when I am honest they give me this look, like I am a freak for having normal scared of being sick, dying thoughts!

Isn't that the same as when women say no, they mean yes? when you are using reverse psychology on someone? Telling them they look skinny, when they are not? Or a doctors who are trying to persuade patients to change unhealthy habits, and lifestyles?
A lot of the time i think we do it to be nice, or to help ourself with something we think we deserve..
We need to learn from each other, influence someone to do better, feel better, be better.
Manipulate the shit out of the world leaders so we can get some peace on this planet... Think if we could have manipulated pharmaceutical companies to make drugs because they want to help people and not for the profit? The Food industry was about feeding all living creatures? Made tyrants give themselves the same punishment that they had inflicted onto others?? Thats starting to sound like I world I would have liked to lived in..

0 Whats A life??

"To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable." Erich Fromm

Whats the sum of a life?? the people you meet, the accomplishments you achieve,the family you build, you're adventures and traveling??
The one thing they have inn common is that they are youre memories.. and thats all you have..
At the end of you're life, whats more important. memories and a dying body or a dying mind in a old body??

I have always said that I would rather loose my mind and not knowing, than being held prisoner in a broken body.. But I don't know anymore... Its easy to have beliefs when you are young, dreaming you're own Nirvana, but dying is shitty no matter how you look at it, But if you have lived a fulfilled life, maybe that makes it easier. knowing that you have done what you send out to do.

My grandma is dying from cancer, and that sucks. She was given radiation, and in some cases it has the opposite effect, so instead of 1 tumor she has now 16.
But in all of that, she has no problem accepting it, she has had a hard, wonderful life. She is surrounded by her family, and she cherishes her memories from her long life.
And she is ready to go to God and grandpa, and that gives me comfort. It would have been terrible if she had no faith and was scared of dying, but for her, its just a new part of her journey.

I have always liked the saying, money don't make you rich, experiences do...
You cant take you're money or worldly possessions with you, If there is something after life, you're soul is all you get to keep,
So nurture the soul, with knowledge, compassion, love and a lot of fun.. and I mean a LOT of fun indeed
