Hsin Hsin Ming -01

When you understand the relationship

of subject and object

thinker and thought

and how they create each other

you recognise that these are not two,but one

Following the entry about confused and/or conflicting moral and ethical

standards (Dignitas Personae etc.) I endeavour to attempt to be fair

by now showing this item of news:

saudi pedo

It appears that the Saudi court - enforcing Shia law - does not have the right to protect the child either!

Oh dear.You would think that any major religion would by now have realised

the universal repulsion of ordinary people at such activities.

Christmas Myths...the real message

Clearing the record about things like donkeys and wise men doesn’t show us the real truth of Christmas. The power of the Christmas story has little to do with who did what and when. It doesn’t matter if Jesus was born on December 25 or on Flag Day. What matters is that he came into the world as a fragile human being, a baby boy in the care of a teenage girl with a skittish husband. God showed us that humility and grace mean so much more than power and glory. Once we clear away the decorations and the subterfuge, we see God revealed in an impoverished infant. I don’t know the mind of God, but it seems like he was making a point.

from an article by Stephen W Simpson


Love that phrase 'humility and Grace mean so much more than power and glory'
