I’ve spoken to a lot of people who think of God that way. And I guess I don’t understand how people like my friend can still hurt me even though I’ve talked to many others who agree. See, I think God was all the gods humanity dreamt up. I think all the religions that have ever existed are talking about one God, but we focused on specific aspects of him and that’s why there are so many different kinds and types of religion. I think people need Him to be angry and just or whatever bc they want to feel that bad people will be punished. So that they will feel validated for doing good things. But my best friend thinks that way, that we are sinners and I wouldn’t normally care bc she’s still my friend and she’s entitled to her opinion but our friendship is disappearing right before my eyes and I can’t handle it. How can her God be so loving when she says things like that to people like me? I think we all have the same God and we choose to focus on specific parts of Him. But why don’t people focus on His love and kindness and compassion? Why do they focus on the fact that we disappoint Him, that we are imperfect? Does it mean nothing that we don’t want this, that we try to fight it? Why do we give Him human emotions like anger and frustration and cruelty when He is the most loving being to ever grace our presence? I don’t want to keep Him a secret. I don’t think any of us can. When we tell someone we love them, we are sharing Him. When we do good things for people, we are sharing Him. When we are moved to tears, we are with Him. When we do things we love like read and write and watch tv, we are with Him. And I love that.
- A message from a wonderful person I met on Tumblr. You know who you are. I know you asked me to keep your messages as a secret but I think that this, your words, your understanding, shouldn’t be one of those things people hide. People should know, and this is a lovely message, I couldn’t believe you managed to adore my words and my writings when we both know that you are far more brilliant.
Wonder in Cracks
Problem: There is no problem, really.
Objective: To surpass or overcome my laziness.
Materials/Medium: Paper, Clay, Paint.
Subject Matter: People of such
Concept/Idea: I got my idea from looking at different graphic designs on Tumblr and just thinking that the artwork becomes more wonderful to look at when they are far from what society deem as normal. I personally believe that things or people that are anomalous is more fascinating therefore making them more interesting to look at and it just feels like you want to get to know them more just to grasp little snippets of why they are the way they are, why they do the things they do and in doing so we might feel like their uniqueness will rub off on us like pixie dust.
He shook his head. “Not the way you’re thinking,” he said, the shadow of a smile on his lips. “In music, consonant chords are points of arrival. Rest. There’s no tension,” he tried to explain. “Most pop music hooks are consonant, which is why most people like them. They’re catchy but interchangeable. Boring. Dissonant intervals, however, are full of tension,” he said, holding my gaze. “You can’t predict which way they’re going to go. It makes limited people uncomfortable - frustrated, because they don’t understand the point, and people hate what they don’t understand. But the ones who get it,” he said, lifting a hand to my face, “find it fascinating. Beautiful.” He traced the shape of my mouth with his thumb. “Like you.” - The Evolution of Mara Dyer
