High Points Sometimes Come at your Lowest Points

I am a little shocked, but apparently, I was picked as Editor’s choice of the day on bloggers.com.

I usually take the weekend off from posting, but I saw that my emails were going a little crazy so I checked up on them….and lo an behold…I am on the front page of Bloggers.com.

I titled this post as I did, because on Friday, I was not feeling it.  I was ready to throw the whole personal blog idea out the window.  I thought to myself why would anyone want to read my blog out of hundreds of thousands of blogs that are out there.

Apparently, bloggers.com felt my blog was readable and it is much appreciated.

The only thing I want to say besides thank you to bloggers.com, is this;  My site is called peaceful controversy for a reason.  I am waiting for your comments – no matter what they are – so that we can have a battle of wits.  I am not looking to win the battle……I am looking to turn the battle into the opportunity to evolve.

Thanks again to whom ever voted and supported my blog.

Peace be with everyone!!!!

Life is full of controversy so here is a thought to live by:
Why is life unfair?
Because there’s never going to be a system that is fair to everyone.

Peace in the Midst of Terror

Everyone who wants to see it can see it.   Peace has got to be in our future.   How do we know?   Because Jews, Christians and Moslems all agree on some sort of concept of a Messiah and anyone who believes in a merciful G-d (from here forward, I will be referring to G-d as the Life Force of the Universe) must believe that there will be a point in time that peace will be ever present.   Through faith in The Life Force of the Universe, we can be assured that peace will eventually be ours.   Read the rest of this entry »

Man & Woman – Friend or Foe?

Most people have experienced what it is like to “love” someone and then a few years later (sometimes even a few days later) hate that same person’s guts. How does this happen? How can we be so enamored with someone one day and want to inflict physical harm on them the next. Why does this phenomenon seem to limited to relationships between the opposite sex? I say this because we usually don’t have passionate love for someone of the same sex (assuming we are heterosexual – see note above).

Greed…The Deadliest Sin of Them All

Greed is a special sin – in my opinion.  The other six (wrath, envy, lust, gluttony, sloth & pride) don’t seem to be as dangerous to humanity as a whole as the sin of greed has, in fact, turned out to be.  Even the sin of wrath, although potentially dangerous, it is clearly detectable in a person (it is very hard to hide intense anger) and therefore preventable.  Envy, lust, gluttony, sloth & pride, though they do have some negative consequences to humanity as a whole, these sins are more on the self-destructive side.  Greed is the only sin that  has proven itself to be the most dangerous and most silent killer of them all.
