Apology

I want to apologize to everyone. I get this way when things get hard. I have a rational thinking animal inside me. I must shackle it with these perspectives, or it will trample (rationalize) what feeling I have.

I've spent the last 45 years trying to figure out the meaning of should.

As my understanding of "myself" grows, the way I see everything else changes, the information I get from any particular thing changes, my understanding of "myself" grows.

it's been a wild…

"All waters are brooded over by Nârâyana, but every kind of water is not fit for drink. Similarly, though it is true that the Almighty dwells in every place, yet every place is not fit to be visited by man. As one kind of water may be used for washing our feet, another may serve the purpose of ablution, and others may be drunk, and others again may not be touched at all; so there are different kinds of places.

apologies

I regret my last forum post (which arguably broke some rules and was finally deleted, at my request) made when I was burnt out after having a big problem. Much of the post was not relevant because of the last site focus change, which I am still not used to, and much of my post was emotional/subconscious nonsense, though some, such as criticizing ideologies of violent ideology texts, I still wholeheartedly agree with.
