As I have said in other blogs, the world’s going insane. Though I’ve seen evil beyond the veil of official narratives for decades, it still blows my mind how insouciant Americans are to the erection of institutional powers that are radically changing every aspect of our society for the worse. Lockdowns and vaxx mandates were some of the most evil things I’ve ever seen.
However, most don’t care about such grave injustices because most aren’t rooted in proper cultural understanding. They don’t have understanding of the past and therefore don’t have convictions of what should be. They are willing to accept willy-nilly whichever new thing, and call it progress because their demagogues call it progress. “Yeah, let’s lock ourselves down! Great idea!”
So I escape into solitude… perhaps more than I should.
Now, solitude is something I consider very healthy. To be alone with your thoughts is to better know them. It is to better know who you are. When you embrace their existence, they become more a part of your character.
Many run away from their thoughts. They’re afraid they’ll lead to some panicked state. So they drown out their thoughts with incessant noise and distraction. They’re addicted to phones and televisions. They are addicted to the presence of others who prevent them from being alone. In the process they run away from who they are, and become ever-more a mere projection of whom their imperfect understanding of self tells them to be. They’re puppets. They’re hollow. They are.
(Maybe that sounds harsh. But I don’t care. The world needs more than anything bluntness.)
At the same time, solitude can become comfortable to a point that is not healthy. When you’re away from others, and the pulse of society doesn’t ripple through your mind, your thoughts can saturate your being to a point where any social contact diverting you from them can become quite irritating. A recent loss of temper towards a maskhole at a grocery store – after the clown called me a racist for telling him to read RFK’s The Real Anthony Fauci – made me realize my solitude provoked this. It did.
Other examples I can give of recent irritations with my fellow man resulting from my prolongued solitude. I don’t want to though. Just trust me. They’re there.
Thus, as much as I can praise the blessings of Nature, like some wannabe Emerson, I also must say that far above mountains and canyons stands mankind in God’s hierarchy of favor. We are his most prized Creation. We are made in his image and likeness. That likeness refers to our conscious minds capable of discerning patterns of reality no other being can. In our minds and actions can be reflected his glory (though it is his glory not ours).
Thus, I know I must never lose sight of the Second Great Commandment to “love my neighbor as myself.” Solitude which impels me towards not doing this is solitude that is not godly. To be in the presence of the light of the best of mankind, I say, is far more edifying than glowing coral canyons.
Oh Lord, help me love… even maskholes, libtards, soy boys, wokesters, so on and so forth.
If they’re “irritations”, than God used them to
get you out of the ” solitude” because He doesn’t
want that for you right now, driving round and round the Grand Canyon Rim even though
the photos are great, I will buy out my cell phone
contract next week and get a Samsung. If I get to go out west again I’ll make sure I see Imperial
Point. Never heard of it before.
Love your neighbour??
Why should God answer a.prayer where
the expected benefactors are insulted
as soy boys, libtards, maskholes ( that’s a good
one though ) ? It’s really funny.
Can’t you just buy your groceries
like everyone else and leave? You are
absolutely correct, it’s too easy to be angry
and vehement on the web.
Honesty is the best policy and there are things
missing from the grocery store incident
Do you have the University degree and spare
cash to revisit the southwest at will or does the
store clerk? There’s an in between step missing
before the clerk says “racist”. But nevermind:
just seal the exhausted guy’s doom/fate by
telling him he has to read something about
a Washington politician that will confirm
how wrong he is about masks and vaxes.
You’re nice putting it into action like that.
Pandemic pressure has more or less killed
off courteous conversation with neighbours.
I am insulting and being insulted all the time.
Preserving the balance has gone out the window
and has to be recovered some where.
Our Bible translations have their origin
from the first Greek translations where “love”
was more to be construed as “respect”
which makes the living your neighbour
God still has a whole list of people that
will benefit from meeting Charles Torello,
physically in person, not just web.
so let the Potter use you for that.
Safely back at home that’s great
In returning and resting thou art daved
“saved” is better than “daved”.
Thank you for including the comment.
National Geographic Atlas of the National
Parks is a great over priced book if not yet owning and includes
everything except photo of Old Faithful
don’t know why.
Anyway we are being brainwashed by
small fonts pre selected by Microsoft
and government acts differently on brain.
Everything a secret then lots more
spelling errors with bad eyesight. sorry
“irritants/fellowmen” stand up America
blog patrons now have a choice and maybe
some other Seattle homeless guy future
Big ego post funny too could not find again
You have an absolutely enormous ego
like frickin Death Star gobbling up
everything in its path positively Orwellian
forget George Lucas, but filtered and
left at the coat check all ok. it makes you you.
All your friends know just don’t block
the exits for them.
People with great ability and intelligence
frequently have this big ego problem even on
Sundays. Yes I hope I am a tolerated
intrusion/guest and will not use my welcome
to hijack the blog so I will keep trying to
be fake Kiergegaardian very brief:
First, with an enormous ego that grotesque
is it even polite or proper to ask Christ for help?
Seeing as he suffered for clear cut uncomplicated issues, it being, “difficult enough
for the righteous to enter the kingdom of
No mater. The ego has a fire and the fire a fuel
and that fuel a name and the name of the
fuel is how we wish others to perceive us,
as powerful “together” people or some variation there of
and where little is forgiven little love is shown
and her sin’s which were many have been
forgiven her as per Christ in the house of
the Pharisees, no public image to hold up.
This is the lynchpin and it can easily be pulled,
I leave it at that still having a plank in
my own eye, even unto death, but maybe a bit
smaller by that time, no Fauci invited as
pall bearer. The temple of how we
wish others to perceive us is very unfair and draining and not needed as other people see
the same good in you every day no temple required Can still have inspirational blog.
Thanks again that’s more than enough for now
have a great day.
