Monday Moaning: Preaching Fanatics!
Today I am doing it a little different, even though I have had some moans lined up or idea that only need a good hour of finger blistering typing and a big mouth to share with you my opinion or look on things.
If it wasn’t what happened earlier when I was reading a comment that was a reply on one of my own. One can think of many things when I would use the word ‘fanatic’ for what I read.
My heart jumped a bit in excitement because some way or another we have all become one in any field. Still when the word drops I am sure most would think about the terrorist even though taking it to the extreme. To me it is just questioning what the difference might be.
What if the only difference is that an extremist is willing to kill for what he believes. In the end one fanatic only has to go one step beyond their conceptions and understanding of what little they consider truth.
Stepping in the realm of truth is pretty dangerous and becomes even more distorted the deeper we get in. In the end this is where I want to go but there are many things from letting me go there or even see it. We are offered glimpses of it though we cannot determine it is truth. Or at least not yet.
You have to bare with me today as the raving only just go started. And the reason is o that comment what for me was created by a fanatic and maybe a little obsessed, but in order to make a sound judgment I need more studies. This on the other hand is not said that studies will get us closer to understanding of even seeing the truth.
This weeks thoughts are going to be even challenging you to give it all some thought.
My Monday Moans are usually a dig at humanity, community, news, media and even the news. Giving thoughts that I created during my time of living and learning. Under no circumstances will I argue that I know the truth, though I will always have you look at a flip side of things or just look at it from a different angle.
When we talk fanatics we also talk about the health guru, freak or fanatic. Not even to mention how they try to make me follow their lead. Even though my thought is that all is good eating as long as it is not to much of anything one can stay healthy. Imagine the fanatics getting red in anger. High blood pressure anyone?
Thing is they are so caught up in their beliefs they hardly have eyes for anything else unless they see a burger being squashed between your lips. Then they explode in a frenzy before returning to organizing their healthy life. It takes too much time and effort.
Not said I would not make the effort but the time I have been living I seen a hundred new diets pass me by. There is an average of two new diets a year that claim a healthier life.
Yes fun fact. Did you know a new scientific word came out today that we humans need fats for a healthier life.
I know right. But isn’t it true that every time we create a diet we end up using it and seeing negative side effects in the long run. Which changes our diet again and again. This news is nothing more than a new study seeking the truth for a healthier life. Though can you imagine the health fanatics right about now. They made efforts to ban sugars and fats from our daily life only to hear we need it. Beng it in moderate amounts.
Again my idea of everything can be eaten be it in moderate amounts is not so crazy after all. I will add that we need exercise and more of it. Ur mobile devices has our asses stuck to the sofa way to much. (guilty I know). That said I am finally fixing up my old steel frame bike to take out into nature again.
What will be the next new diet? Guess we can’t eat rice or something or no fruits since it also dissolves out teeth. I guess we are bound to keep on searching for the truth.
Speaking of nature. Animals and our understanding of what we have been doing wrong has had a great impact on all of us. Well most since money takes president over reason.
These are just my opinion on the journey that is my life and the path to find the truth and escape with death.
Crazy is one word for it but when is an opinion or a belief related to the truth. Does one have argument that what one believes is truth. This will be a question and thought for this week.
Does it become like this, do we create a truth for ourselves, or do we take the written word for it. Whether written by a scientist, expert of scholar. This comes to mind in search of the truth. Because we can easily accept something if it is written, without truly knowing ourselves if it is true.
Our basic religion from whatever corner of the world you come from is based on text. Or at least that is as far back as we can go to the truth. We know it was once written down. This is not to take a dig at religion but even in here we find fanatics and they can go far when it comes to preaching what they believe is the truth.
Still when we encounter said words we read, assess and ponder before coming up with an opinion. In the end it is nothing more than that. And I think a fanatic is also very stubborn and does not like seeing it any other way as they may have started to believe that their beliefs are the truth so nothing should change.
It could only take one extra step to go from fanatic to extremist.
The question will be how far will we take it? Will we create truths or try to uncover the real one, which in my honest opinion will never be uncovered whole. For that we have created to many lies and opinions ourselves.
That about wraps it up for today. Be in good health and make sure to make your own assessments and opinions, but keep an open mind for change.
Your very own Preaching Fanatic.
