I have been reflecting a lot recently, just cleaning house in my thought palace. With all the shit going on in this world I have finally decided that I shall no longer let it tell me how to feel or think anymore. Each and every person, animal, creature, has the same damn rights period. There is nothing else.

At the not so tender age of 45, I guess I am either having a mid-life crisis or waking up. Either way it is going to piss off a number of people but... I don't care. If they seriously love me as they claim then it should not make a damn difference if I share their beliefs or not. Why should I have to conform to another's ideals while tossing mine to the wayside? Before you continue I will tell you this, do not send hate mail, do not threaten me. I am willing to debate in a non violent manner with educated individuals, but do not think I will allow you to attack me.

When I was around 13 years old I started to question things in my life. Religion, orientation, laws, rules etcetera. I began my journey of learning all I could about the various beliefs in the world. There are somewhere in the area of 4200 current faiths out there right now. Why is any one the right one? Why are the others not? This bothered me, I did not want to go to hell, I mean I was told if I did not believe in the one true God that is what would happen, so how would I know which one was the one?

After much research I found a few common factors, incense, candles,  prayers/chants, saints/deities, iconic items, it was all so confusing how much they shared yet differed. It was the basic faith I tried to dust off, remove all the add-ons and alterations to suit a particular group. I then decided that I preferred to hold nature above all else. I molded my own way of thinking, and I do not care what anyone else thinks about it, it is after all a BELIEF. 

Now I do not chastise anyone for what they believe, if you want to worship a goat, have at it, if you want to pray to a supreme being, by all means, just do not tell me I must do the same. I do not shove my love of animals and nature down your throat, I would appreciate the same. If you never knew my perspective of faith how would you think of me? That said, why should it change just because we do not agree? It is healthy for people to have different opinions, it is what makes us human after all.

The orangutan does not tell the chimpanzee he is better or worse, they see for themselves, done. Sometimes one wins, and other times not. So why should a Jehovah witness knock on my door, suck up My time on My property and tell me I will go to hell unless I change? Did I invade your life and demand you to conform to my way of living? Uh, No. Or the neighbor who is now born again walking up to me in a parking lot asking "do you know where you are going when you die, how are you sure?" well... How the hell are YOU so sure?

My feelings are similar with sexual orientation. I believe so long as two people love one another and respect each other it is great. I do not care if it is a man and woman, man and man, woman and woman, Love is an unbiased emotion and supersedes all man made rules. While I myself am a heterosexual female I do not condemn any other living being for their feelings, Love is love. However, when a homosexual person intentionally enters an establishment they know has different beliefs and demands the owner conform to their needs, that is bull shit. 

As proven, if a "straight" person entered a place that they knew had a set belief it is wrong for them to demand service. If you don't like it, don't go there, plain and simple. I do not see atheists or Jewish people going into a cathedral and demanding it be shut down because the clergy did not alter their rituals to meet the other's needs. To me that is provoking, pure and simple. So much freaking anger in this world today is making people do things for spite not equality. To accuse that it is prejudice, ok but as long as I have been alive I have always seen "The management has the right to refuse service". 

Same goes for racial issues today. Slavery is wrong, period. No human should be forced against their will for anyone else. Black, white, native, Asian, etc. When people say "Oh that was a hate crime" it really ticks me off, ALL CRIME IS HATE CRIME there is no such thing as a loving crime! (crime of passion yes, but). I do not see people visually like most apparently, I see them for their soul. I can, for the most part, not even see the physical form, I don't want to as this would limit my expectations of them, instead I rather see them for who they are inside.

How do I not see a person physically you ask? No, I am not blind, however that is a very good way to make a comparison. If you could not "see" me, how would you come to know me? You would base your opinion on "knowing me", that is how I view people. If you are an asshole, I see an ugly person. If you are kind to others I see a beautiful being. My whole life I have been spoon fed other people's thoughts and beliefs, babies are baptized before they can even speak, unable to decide for themselves. That is ok, for your belief but allow that child to grow and learn for themselves, do not banish them for discovering who they are, they are not you!

Do not assume you know anything about me just by how I look, I am the first person who would dive in to save any other living being no matter if I share their opinions, race, morals etc. I am no supermodel, I am not a very athletic type but I like to think that what I lack in looks I make up for in personality and heart. I never judge people, I can't it is not my place and I simply ask for the same respect. Don't like me? Then don't bother with me, But do not throw stones at me either, it would be a bitch to see how athletic I can be under such circumstances.

There are two major problems I have with the world, Children and Animals. Why? because they, in my humble opinion, are the only true innocence. They do not judge, they trust, they love, all based on innocence, a lack of contamination and programming. I have never tolerated the abuse of either and I never will, That I guess, is where I go against my own statements. You may call me a hypocrite, but I would say there should never be a faith that allows such atrocities. They do not harm in the name of created veil. I can understand hunting, survival of fittest, sort of, but only when there is no other choice. Animals kill for need not greed. We on the other hand are constantly destroying anything that goes against what we deem right or will benefit our selfish endeavors.

Every walk of life has good and bad. To me, evil or bad is when it is an intentional violation of another. Good, well again, it is a simple case of doing what is right. I feel we all have both in us, a balance if you will, this is what we call harmony. Sometimes however the balance get off kilter and trouble begins. People who abuse in the name of a cause are still abusing, case closed! So yes, I believe the individual who takes and rapes and kills a little child is down right evil and should have the same done to them. And for once I would love to see someone who abuses animals suffer the very same conditions and fate. 

Lastly in this list of gripes is my opinion on sexuality. I shall keep it simple, what consenting partners do is their own business, you have no right to make man made rules against my or any other's choices of what is pleasure. If my partners and I wish to partake in something that you think is "kinky" or "dirty" what business is it to you? Unless I am on your kitchen table perhaps, then I can see your objection but if I am in my own home, or an establishment that is meant for such activities that is my business. If you know a place hosts people in rubber, or animal costumes or dressed like babies, why the hell would you enter if you don't approve? I sure as hell would not be caught dead in a place that offends me, but I would not shut it down either (Unless if goes against my one rule, never against consent).

I do not go to countries where they have their methods that would conflict with my own, so don't enter mine and expect me to change. I finally am finding myself and am starting to really know who I am, quite frankly I do not give a single breath to what you think about it, that is you, this is me!

Thank you for allowing me to voice my mind, again I will not let you attack me, even if you try I shall let it fall to the wayside and continue on knowing I am living as best as I am able, loving with all my heart and giving all I can. Namaste!
