  5. respect, dignity and grace

    brother kaman and meredog both make good points,but i cannot multiquote and make it work. yes i do believe it starts with us,but as brother kaman said,we can't give what may not have(ie:self respect).and as meredog said"not everyone deserves to be respected".if i find someone who proves that,i just don't have any further dealings with them.
  6. considering the humanists around here,i do not want mixed up with them. free thinker would be nice,except for the above. so i guess i'll leave it at atheist. in my current life i started with diapers,so i didn't need underwear for a while.i suspect it will be the same in my next life.
  7. Lao Tzu saying

    rev tom, having gone thru a period in my life that can only be described as the"black lagoon",i in no way dismiss depression(capitol d)as something that should be is a very real medical disease and needs to be treated. however,what works for some people does not for others.the psychologist and psychiatrist i was seeing both told me that medication was not an answer for me,but i had within me the answers.hence meditation.while i wish the answers to some other medical conditions i have were as easy to solve,they aren' i do my best and don't complain about it. i hope you did not think i was being dismissive,and if you did,i apologize.

  19. i don't consider either of them accurate.nobody is around that heard the original speech,sutra or lesson as the case may be.and there is no guarantee that said events even occurred.

  22. keep in mind that in michigan,if the couple is from out of state,they have to be married in the county that issued the license(that is part of the state law).if only one of the couple is from out of state,then yes,they can be married anywhere in the state. texas is an example where you can get the license in texas,and get married anywhere in the united states.
