Angry God=Angry people living in fear

I believe in visualisations, manifestations...wanting things so much that you can make it happen, having friends/family/lovers send energy to you for healings...I believe there are many things we don't know...but I'm irritated by the thought that people believe there's a paternal "god" who takes care of his "children"...especially if that "god" said and did everything that was attributed to him in the old testament. Some uptight old dude on a throne with a long white beard and a stern, set jaw. I'm not a fan of the Abrahamic religions, I've mentioned that before. I also believe that we make feeble attempts to explain the unexplainable, know the unknowable...and yes, to believe the unbelievable. We've been through this before, though. My opinions are nothing new. I believe in the power of crystals...as a fact, that's how we get our electricity here. I believe in the healing ability of our bodies and the use of herbs and food as medicine. I believe stress and fear can wreak havoc on one's body, community, relationships, nation, economy (personal and global), and can (ultimately) cause dis-ease and death. I find comfort that I don't and can't know TRUTH with a capital T...let the mystery be...and breathe, breathe, breathe...exhale. The breath of life.

upstream from white sand beaches are hamlets, paddies and canyons bombshells unexploded, cratered land, cratered faces  mangled extremities...
