Devout does not describe my views on religion. I am not a lamb.

What are your views on religion?

For the most part, I see organized religion as negative. So many wars have been fought and millions of people have died in the name of religions, how can they be a good thing. IMO many people use religion as a crutch. While conducting their lives with seemingly little regard for their fellow human beings and often "sinning" or acting against the teachings of their religious icons they convince themselves all is good as long as they go to church or it's equivalent occasionally or even just pray to be better.

I am not sure I believe in God. If I do, it is as a universal intelligence. If believed in a God, he or she would only manifest good and positive energy. All the negativity in the world comes from us humans and not from God. People would benefit if they stopped blaming God when things go wrong and rather look to themselves.

There is much more to why I believe as I do, but this isn't the place for a novel. I spent time attending Science of the Mind services both when I was a kid and as an adult. This is a metaphysical religion founded by Earnest Holmes in 1927. Science of the Mind meetings or services welcome and embrace all people, regardless of their religious leanings.

I totally agree with you. Not sure in what I believe in, but I am not religious. Now as you I believe in a universal intelligence. Now Karma plays in I think if you do wrong things, wrong things will come back to you. Sounds a bit like Scientology Tom Cruise a long time supporter not sure if I believe in that either. I meditate and pretty much believe in nothingness that is what mediation teaches you. Kyomu and I talk about it some he is a Tao I am Zen.

I am kind of hyper. I have not tried meditating. Guess I fear that I would not be able to concentrate as I suspect one should. My mind is always going in 20 directions at once. If I should decide to try this, I will need to find a knowledgeable mentor/teacher. I believe in Karma too but I also think it works because one believes in it. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and vice versa.

Scientology is scary, IMO. It seems like mind control to me. I have probably read too much negative stuff about Scientology and their practices. Tom Cruise is not a shining example of someone I would hold in high esteem. I worked with a fellow who was a Scientologist once a long time ago. He was always trying to recruit me. The problem with him was that he was just plain weird, which may have had nothing to do with his being a Scientologist, but I wasn't impressed by the things he had to say either way.

People take from any religion what they choose regardless of whether it is what is being taught or not. Science of Mind teaches about the power of believing. The problem is some people think they can use that power for personal rather then spiritual gain, which is not what it is all about. My stepdad was like that in a way. Everything with him was about monetary gain. He thought if he could believe hard enough, he'd become a wealthy person. He found out otherwise. I think that was a major disappointment for him.

Well that's what meditation teaches "Be still and know". It very tough at first especially if you are hyper. My dad was all about money but died penniless. another strange thing I wokw up early today and go piss then I hear music playing like jazz I did not have a tv or radio on and no cars outside playing music. Just weird.

Do you enjoy jazz? Did you go back to bed or did you stay up, once up. How long did the music play?

Guess your a lion then. I am a virgin since my birthday in on August 28.

There are natural occurrences that we assign special meanings to, such as your birthday, Elvis' passing and the fact that you think a lot about your dad and he enjoyed Elvis' music. ESP is an amazing tool that most humans have lost the ability to use. Dogs and other animals retain their natural extrasensory abilities better than most humans do. Our extrasensory perception is most active when we are very young.

Just around 5 minutes, I stayed up awhile to see if it would come back left everything off it didnt come back weird as hell. I admire your tenacity to stay with the Iron game at your age. ( no homo).

Maybe the trick is to never get out of the game. Over the years, I have geared up and geared down my workouts, but I have never abandoned them completely. Narcissism coupled with being a control freak are powerful tools if you use them to your advantage. Of course besides looking more fit, there is always being more fit then the next person as inspiration.

Just laid out in the sun for an hour in my back yard. It felt great to have the sun beating down on me. I haven't taken the time to do that in awhile. I am out of speed tans at the gym right now. It makes little sense to pay $80 to $100 for 20 sessions when I can lay out in the back yard for free. Heck, I may even head to the river tomorrow and/or Sunday.

You remind me of Jack King a older Bodybuilder in my town he was like late 60's when I met him still owns a gym here. First time I met him he was laying in the sun we later went on to enter BB contests he had alot of knowledge and was a great poser. The Showstoppa knows hims as well he trained there he was sorta of like Vince Gironda if you didnt like him or his gym he would tell you get the hell out. I hate tanning beds, Vit-D from the sun is best.

Thank you. You flatter me though. I am older and I have lifted all my adult life, like your friend. To be honest, I have never taken bodybuilding to a personal level that would justify my entering BB contests, although I have considered that being a somewhat advanced senior, I might have a chance of placing if I properly prepared and was that dedicated. I have no idea how to pose. I never tried it, to be honest.

Nah, I'd have to buy a thong.  Smiley

Okay, we will see. I guess one should never say never. I'd have to diet down a bit and there are some areas that need work too. Then there is dusting the plastic trophy, like you said.
