Journeys

Journeys Moments, they will come, moments, they will go. With their journey, what will one come to know? Moments, they come, when they go, it rearranges one’s perception, one’s perspective it changes. Will the changes become a world of infinite wisdom, or a lifetime of limited ?, or limitless ?, freedom. Some say, the gods, will provide, will guide . Within each cult, each religion they hide. Men have taken their philosophies and deride. Filling men’s minds with fears, false prides. B. J. “ A ” 2 May 4th2017

I don't want to get started on my opinion of organized religion but I do agree with the fact that most of the teachings are through the mouths of humans. I wonder ,where is god, in this? I think the worst besides fear is shame.

It is comforting to know that some carvings in stone will end up as dust.

How true !!!, I too “ agree with the fact that most of the teachings are through the mouths of humans.” The Romans commissioned to have all the ancient stories, carved in stone, written on papyrus, spoken by mouth compiled {{ after making them fit into a religious theme by deletion, by addition }}into what is now the bible. And from there, concurred, using religion as their new war machine and controlling the world for the past sixteen hundred years . And again, how true !!! “ the worst besides fear is shame. ” and that is the food that fuels the survival of organized religions throughout the past two millenniums . Bill .
