It is interesting that people speak of religion as such a great cause of war. Maybe they have a point, maybe they don’t. But I wonder how many truly know a deep peace - if not, then surely this means there is a choice for war within them? Seems like a trap. Yet maybe this could be said to be part of a ‘spiritual journey’ - if nothing else, for example, becoming aware of the conflict of the conscious and subconscious mind, so that this can be released. And that can involve bringing up fears and pain and shit that has been denied. Not always so comfortable. But if it leads to peace…and freedom - EVEN FROM RELIGION - then that would appear to be a good thing, surely? And is not just casual words within on a forum.

I find it curious how often people bring up war when anything around religion/spirituality/ divinity is mentioned (not just here). But how many actually know peace and would they change how they spoke if they actually tried to know it? Might find that denying the warring nature within - so as to see oneself as a superior being -is not the same as finding a way through to the other side of it.
Ps Don’t care for sherry but in fairness I haven’t had a mourning coffee…

Sorry to hear that, I hope the coffee is given the time and space to grieve properly.

As for the rest, eh ?
