THE IDEA Neighborhoods that are surrounding places of worship and teachings should be worthy of the church, temple and school. I believe, it is in my faith of the world I live in, that people and animals that live close to such a place should live by the same rules and laws and teachings. Walking distance? Within the distance of hearing.. music or bell?
Typically, even though not a law or statute… it is common that schools for children are surrounded by neighborhood that is very accommodating for them. The community will try to keep out sexual offenders, criminals, adult themed gathering places and are generally more family-oriented.
Am I suggesting a “themed neighborhood”?
I could be! Here is the reason. It helps peace of mind. Really. When a human being is surrounded by familiar things and shares a commonness with others there is less reason to be on guard and more reason to be at ease.
It is one thing to speak of doing something, it takes more than just courage to take a step in an all new direction! Starting now, I am committing to a NEW PATH in life that I hope and pray will guide me to be a person more easily known to past peoples and new strangers.
I do not know if I’ll kneel before a cross or other object. This has bothered me some since my earliest days of visiting a church or other house of worship.
What I seek is being able to “know my fellow human”. I wish to be able not to stand in someone else’s shoes, but to be able to emotionally, spiritually understand them like standing at their side.
I’m not seeking demi-god status! ROTFLMAO! No, I just seek understand of “my fellow man and woman and whatever names they call themselves.”
It’s a new path for me, but not an unfamiliar way of thinking. Not sure I can be on a steady course, but I hope it’ll be a gentle one. I have written of violence and spoken of great hates. Yes, I may have written them OUT OF MY OWN SYSTEM. But I actually want peace and peacefulness in my own life. I don’t really want dramas. I’d rather help be a steady spirit for others going through turbulent times.
Hopefully see you again someday!
I just wrote this in a very casual informal way, I know it!
