The Futility of Worry

On The Fall of (One) Man

My Fall – the start of the disintegration of my soul – started at birth when I started learning to wear masks because others told me that parts of myself were not acceptable. And I believed it.

My purpose in life is to reintegrate. To, as Jung suggests, discover and make peace with those parts of my soul that I have come to believe are unacceptable and unlovable.

Did Jesus Die for Us?

We often hear the expression, “Jesus died for you.” If true, and I believe it is, in what sense did he die for us?

Did he die as a blood sacrifice to redeem us from the penalty of sin? No, I can’t accept this for numerous reasons I don’t care to explain here.

I believe he died to show us that death has no hold over any of us.

Why would he do this?

Well, if our greatest fear – death –  is just an illusion, then what further excuse do we have not to live deliberately and authentically, in accordance with our own values, instead of simply blindly following the values of the insane culture we live in?
