Bad, Children, and Fire: IS HE DOING IT ON PURPOSE? When a client of mine tells me that he became abusive because he lost control of himself, I ask him why he didn't do something even worse. For example, I might say, "You called her a fucking whore, you grabbed the phone out of her hand and whipped it across the room, and then you gave her a shove and she fell down. There she was at your feet, where it would have been easy to kick her in the head. Now, you have just finished telling me that you were 'totally out of control' at that time, but you didn't kick her. What stopped you?" And the client can always give me a reason. Here are some common explanations "I wouldn't want to cause her a serious njury. " "I realized one of the children was watching." "I was afraid someone would call the police." "I could kill her ifI did that." "The fight was getting loud, and I was afraid neighbors would hear." And the most frequent response of all: "Jesus, I wouldn 't do that. I would never do something like that to her." The response that I almost never heard-I remember hearing it twice in fifteen years-was: "I don't know." These ready answers strip the cover off of my clients' loss-of-control excuse. While a man is on an abusive rampage, verbally or physically, his mind maintains awareness of a number of questions: "Am I doing something that other people could find out about, so it could make me look bad? Am I doing anything that could get me in legal trouble? Could I get hurt myself? Am I doing anything that I myself consider too cruel gross, or violent?" A critical insight seeped into me from working with my first few dozen clients: An abuser almost never does anything that he himself con siders morally unacceptable. He may hide what he does because he thinks other people would disagree with it, but he feels justified inside. I can't remember a client ever having said to me: ""There's no way I can defend what I did. It was just totally wrong." He invariably has a reason that he considers good enough. In short, an abuser's core problem is that he has a distorted sense of right and wrong. sergle: i’m reading why does he do that and this last part has been ON FIRE, i am hollering in my house.

Energy, Memes, and Too Much: MY PATH IS NOT "NEW AGE" INFACT IIS OUITE ANCIENT In the East(within), the “New Age” was never quite not because — Theres nothing new under the sun and nothing old under the moon. For these reasons, I don’t work with “angels” or “ascended masters.” I AM PRACTICAL. I stick with the Earth, Sun, Moon, Galactic Core, Universal Prime Creator and Infinite Sources as my main connection points. This whole “new age” movement is a multidimensional psychological operation designed to channel the soul energy of the “believers” of these teachings up to the “ascended” teachers and one of the false-light teachings that infects the New (c)Age movement is that there is no such thing as right and wrong, that everything is just an “experience” that is there to teach us a lesson. While it is true that we can learn valuable lessons from adverse circumstances, this does not mean that it is necessary or desirable to be continually oppressed, manipulated, implanted, deceived, enslaved and drained of energy. Those are experiences the human race has had far too much of already.. . . . . .You can seek to learn from all your experience and if you are open to learning from your experiences, then the more you are attacked, the more knowledgeable you become. But, experience is a reason to an end of learning a lesson and those who make experience the end goal are going down the negative path. 4biddenknowledge

Memes, Naive, and Outrageous: President Donald Trump implemented a MuslimBan that stopped Muslim refugees and immigrants from certain countries entering America. This went to the extent whereby people who have lived in America for years and were RETURNING back from a country on the ban list were refused reentry. The thought of even attempting to apply such ludicrous legislation is shocking to say the least. Why should someone's religious belief or place of birth prevent them from entering America? Hearing all of this truly sunk the hooks of injustice deep into my heart. It's such a scary world we live in, feels like unimaginable things are materialising in sight. I'm thankful to see so many well known figures express outrage publicly and so many citizens protesting in the streets and airports of America. People of all faiths and ethnicities came together united to stand against this injustice. You are all the heroes of our today. Shortly after, a US judge issued a temporary halt allowing those detained at the airports to enter the country. This however is not a permanent fix and does not solve the bigger issue at hand. I myself am going to America in April. Some people have asked me "are sure you're allowed in?". My initial propensity is to think of course I am! After all, I'm a British citizen why wouldn't I be? But then deep down, of course i'm not naive to not know that sadly, flying whilst being Muslim has its own reserved implications. Furthermore, after all this chaos, I can't help but feel even more fearful and confused about the potentiality of what could happen. There's so many airport stories about innocent Muslims being detained over pedantic things. Imagine they dig THIS very piece of writing and question me about it? Above all else, it's this type of injustice that fuels hate crime and divides our planet. I urge everyone to use their voices in whatever capacity they can to learn and speak out about the MuslimBan. This isn't about politics, it's about right and wrong. Just ask yourself, in regards to this whole era, what will be taught in the history lessons of our future children? It's all of our duty to create and put forward a moral and loving world for those after us.

We do not agree with endorsing sex solely for pleasure, misusing the profound gift of our bodies or misusing love. We do not agree with removing God and removing children from marriage, because it then ceases to be one.</p> <p>We are not saying that you don’t deserve love and happiness in your life.</p> <p>We are not saying you are less than a person, that you suffer from a disease.</p> <p>We do want you to feel safe. We don’t want you to live in fear. We don’t want awful things like assault and bullying to happen to you, because you are cherished and a person of dignity. We are vehemently against treating you anything but charitably.</p> <p>But that does not change that we believe marriage is sacred, and that misusing your sexuality is sinful.</p> <p>So please do not portray us as against kindness, as against common decency, against your well being. Do not misrepresent us, because it is <em>really hard</em> to not become bitter against you when you portray us as inhuman.</p> <p><em>Love is patient</em><br/><em>Love is kind</em> <br/><em>It does not envy</em><br/><em><strong>It is not proud.</strong></em></p> <p>Sincerely,</p> <p>Tumblr (Practicing) Catholics</p> </blockquote> <p>I’ve been struggling with this because my work place has LGBTQA awareness/pride month this week and they have posters everywhere. This post ^^ completely expresses my opinion.</p> </blockquote> <p>Spot on!</p> </blockquote> <p>I’m not Catholic, I’m a Christian, but <strong>this</strong>. So much this.</p> </blockquote> <p>ARE YOU PEOPLE FUCKING KIDDING ME<br/>HAVE YOU EVEN READ THE BIBLE<br/>THIS IS TOTAL BULLSHIT<br/>PEOPLE ARE BEING JAILED AND MURDERED ALL AROUND THE WORLD BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE IDIOTIC ENOUGH TO BELIEVE AND INSIST THAT MARRIAGE IS A CHRISTIAN CONSTRUCT<br/>MARRIAGE HAS BEEN AROUND LONGER THAN CHRISTIANITY<br/>IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR CHURCH<br/>YOU HAVE NO SAY IN THIS<br/>YOU HAVE NO GROUNDS FOR THIS HATRED AND INTOLERANCE<br/>YOU ARE FULL OF CRAP</p> </blockquote> <p>Yo I’m pretty sure I just said in what I wrote that I think any type of persecution, discrimination or maltreatment based on sexuality or any other reason is a very wrong thing.</p> <p>And you’re right that it isn’t a “Christian construct” because that implies Christianity is an organization or group of people where we control what we believe. It isn’t a belief system or a code of conduct, it is not something to be interpreted by man to mean different things (cough Martin Luther and onward cough). Marriage is not from Christianity, it is FROM GOD. Since the beginning of humanity a la Adam and Eve (I think that story was that “bible” you were talking about?) It is not an agreement between two people, it is a covenant officiated by God, always has been. It has been warped beyond recognition in the secular world.</p> <p>&ldquo;Redefining marriage&rdquo; is basically you saying, &ldquo;yo God I’m really happy for you and Ima let you finish, but I know better than you about what is right and wrong, good and bad.&rdquo;</p> <p>So I mean, you could continue yelling in outrage at finding out the truth and it not being to your liking, or you could calmly discuss the matter on which I’m sure we agree more than you think.</p> </blockquote>
