Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am diamond glints on the snow.
I am sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die
lionskillprey: I do not want what you want, please try not to tell me my want is wrong.
Or if I believe other than you, at least pause before you correct my view.
Or if my emotion is less than yours, or more, given the same circumstances, try not to ask me to feel more strongly or weakly.
Or yet if I act, or fail to act, in the manner of your design for action, let me be.
I do not, for the moment at least, ask you to understand me. That will come only when you are willing to give up changing me into a copy of you. I may be your spouse, your parent, your offspring, your friend or your colleague.
If you allow me any of my own wants, or beliefs, or actions, then you open yourself so that someday these wants of mine might not seem so wrong, and might finally appear to you as right - for me.
To put up with me is the first step in understanding me. Not that you are no longer irritated or disappointed with me for my seeming waywardness.
And in understanding me you might come to prize my differences from you, and far from seeking to change me, preserve and even nurture those differences. Dr Keirsey
lionskillprey: The only things we need to adjust to live better lives are our morality so we can live the freest life we can, without impinging on others freedom as well.

lionskillprey: Bukhari:V1B22N28 "The Prophet said: 'I was shown the Hell Fire and the majority of its dwellers were women who are disbelievers or ungrateful.' When asked what they were ungrateful for, the Prophet answered, 'All the favors done for them by their husbands.'"
Sahih Bukhari, The book of Eclipses, Volume 2, Book 18, Number 161:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Abbas:
The sun eclipsed in the life-time of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) . Allah's Apostle offered the eclipse prayer and stood for a long period equal to the period in which one could recite Surat-al-Baqara. Then he bowed for a long time and then stood up for a long period which was shorter than that of the first standing, then bowed again for a long time but for a shorter period than the first; then he prostrated twice and then stood up for a long period which was shorter than that of the first standing; then he bowed for a long time which was shorter than the previous one, and then he raised his head and stood up for a long period which was shorter than the first standing, then he bowed for a long time which was shorter than the first bowing, and then prostrated (twice) and finished the prayer. By then, the sun (eclipse) had cleared. The Prophet then said, "The sun and the moon are two of the signs of Allah. They eclipse neither because of the death of somebody nor because of his life (i.e. birth). So when you see them, remember Allah." The people say, "O Allah's Apostle! We saw you taking something from your place and then we saw you retreating." The Prophet replied, "I saw Paradise and stretched my hands towards a bunch (of its fruits) and had I taken it, you would have eaten from it as long as the world remains. I also saw the Hell-fire and I had never seen such a horrible sight. I saw that most of the inhabitants were women."
The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Why is it so?" The Prophet replied, "Because of their ungratefulness." It was asked whether they are ungrateful to Allah. The Prophet said, "They are ungrateful to their companions of life (husbands) and ungrateful to good deeds
. If you are benevolent to one of them throughout the life and if she sees anything (undesirable) in you, she will say, 'I have never had any good from you.' "

Muhammad was very specific about why many women will end up in hell. The reason is because many women don't appreciate their husbands!. How good is a woman who doesn't appreciate her husband, and doesn't care about him enough, that if he does something bad to her, then she'll remember it for him for the rest of her life? How good is a woman who doesn't remember much of the good that her husband does for her?
Empty_Everest: This is difficult to justify logically the verse...
Has anyone asked by any chance why we refer to G-d as a male and not a female?
Judaism is based on Kabbalah, the Torah, Tanakh, Talmud, Zohar and other Holly Books are written in the "Language of the Root and Branches", what you are reading is not related to concepts but to attributes taken from Nature. At the moment of conception the sperm moves towards the ovum to fertilize it. This is represented as male and female. The Creator is not a male nor a female.
If we think about the concept of G-d in order for It to be G-d, It has to be complete, any necessity would make It to have a void, if there is a void there is no completeness. Only in the state of completeness the attribute of bestowal exist.
We humanity are receivers if we were to scrutinize ALL of our actions we will discover that everything we do it's with the intention to serve the self, even in our "good deeds", we do it because it makes us feel good, our attribute is receiving.
Because the Creator is the Giver the attribute of bestowal we refer to Him as a male, the attribute of receiving corresponds to humanity for this reason humanity it's refer as a female, male = the attribute of bestowal, female = the attribute of receiver.
This is an example of the language of the Root and Branches.
We Kabbalist don't see the Scriptures as concepts but attributes and spiritual stages. So what you interpret literally... I discoverer something about my internal stages of reality.
Theists claim an all powerful all knowing god and then try to absolve him of responsibility, this is ridiculous
Why Pray? If it changes God's mind then he is not sovereign. If it does not change Gold's mind then it is superfluous.
If a prayer comes true, then the believer says it was answered by God. If the prayer does not come true, then it was "God's will." What a crock of shit.
A classic example would be a 9/11 person stuck in that building......surely some of them were saying ....please God let me live.......Gods answer.....nah ^~*~ you all
A child being raped will surely cry out to god to be saved. A truer and more fervent prayer could not possibly exist....yet as their throat is cut following the rape. God answered their prayer Not
Get a billion Christians to pray for a single amputee. Get them to pray that God regrow that missing limb. This happens to salamanders every day, presumably without prayer; this is within the capacity of God
Pray to God for all the starving children, and put those prayers in a warehouse. Next door, fill a warehouse with food and clothing. Let's see which warehouse does more good
More than a year after boasting that she kicked her habit through prayer, Whitney Houston has checked herself into a drug rehabilitation clinic." NY daily News 03/16/04
Prayer is more than begging, it's pleading, and whining, and crying, and pathetically not getting off your ass and actually DOING SOMETHING
lionskillprey: What about hell... is a god that made hell... a place of eternal torment ... worthy of our worship...
You forget about hell and what it is so you can feel good about your god and yourself
Theist are great at preaching but not very great at thinking....
what about the Fact that your god desires constant worship ... what about the fact that your god is so self centered that he would commit most of the world to hell simply because they do not believe in god ...
Hell is torment.... How could a merciful and loving god create such a place?
hell for unbelievers... for unbelievers, not just the sinful, unbelievers.. What sort of God do you worship? ...
a vengeful, vindictive, god

DestinyZion: Hi lions, thanks for sharing. Personally, I don't believe in hell as you've described. I think it's terrible that people preach about such a place. I agree with you and EE... it makes no sense at all. I'd love to have a discussion with you sometime about it.
lionskillprey: 1. We know the difference between hope and knowledge, we hope for
happiness here and we dream of joy hereafter, but we do not know.
We cannot assert, we can only hope. We can have our dream. In the
wide night our star can shine and shed its radiance on the graves
of those we love. We can bend above our pallid dead and say that
beyond this life there are no sighs -- no tears -- no breaking
Empty_Everest: I truly enjoyed the poem, thanks for sharing
Our inability to merge the intellectual thought and the emotional thought, because we have no idea what is the meaning, reason, and purpose of our lives... in order to justify the circumstances internal and external of our existence.
Empty_Everest: If a woman is okay and consciously accept it and has no problem with it, I don't see why I should have a problem with it. If it was the opposite then that woman has the obligation to seek liberation from it.
lionskillprey: The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together. Our virtues would be proud if our faults whip them not; and our crimes would despair if they were not cherished by our virtues
lionskillprey: ....I respect all people for what they chose in life...because we all have free will...if that’s their choice than so be it...I have my own choice and expect the same respect
Empty_Everest: Be and let be...
Discovering humanity within us allows me to taste, to feel for you, not to feel sorry for you; that you are me and I am you; that what your view as choice is perfect and I have no desire to change it, because I discover you complete.
lionskillprey: I wrote this for my father who died from altimzers
A Empty Road
Along a empty road
A single soul appeared
with his hand in his pocket
ad head bowed low
Alone he walks deep in thought
Where have all the people gone?
Mile after lonely mile
Weeds the only company he keeps Slower and slower his pace begins
A inner voice saying
Don't stop now You'll be dead
Lowering himself to the ground
He dreams of a world that once was
Full of laughter, hope and tears
Good bye there is no hope
lionskillprey: Genuine compassion is based on the recognition that others have the same rights to happiness just like yourself, and therefore even your enemy is a human being with the same wish for happiness as you. A sense of concern developed on this basic is what we call compassion; it extends to everyone, irrespective of whether the person’s attitude toward you is hostile or friendly
Empty_Everest: lion. Everything about it resonates within me, I agree 100% with it, this is the Golden Rule of Kabbalah "Love thy friend as thy self", our true friend is the one that evokes rejection on me towards them, because he or she are Divine messengers that allow me to taste the necessity to correct my ego, and by doing so I discover humanity within me and love towards them. L'chain!!!!
lionskillprey: You can claim you love someone easy enough to toss that word around but if you do not respect their beliefs or know their favorite likes and dislikes, you don't even know them let alone love them therefore
Love is always conditional
lionskillprey: Treat the Earth and all that dwell thereon with respect. Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good. Look after the well being of mind and body. Be truthful and understanding at all times.
