    "Culture may or may not be your friend; you see/sea; you are what youveat; you eat death, you become death; you est life, you become life; and with a few mods; even immortal; unless you have some romantic ideal of dying by freezing to desth under an Aspen Tree."

    "What I really lack is to be clear in my mind 'what I am to do'; not, 'what I am to know', except in so far as a certain understanding must precede every action. The thing is to understand myself, to see what God wishes me to do... What good would it do me if the truth stood before me, cold and naked, not caring whether I recognized her or not, and producing in me a shudder of fear rather than a trusting devotion? Must not the truth 'be taken up into my life?' That is what I now recognize as the most important thing."  - Kierkegaard

    Vegetarianism = Sanity
    Genesis 1: Verse 29; Vegetarianism
    And; God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

    ****************

    Søren Kierkegaard; Danish philosopher, theologist & most of all; social critic also made a remark about this truth; wether he was referring to his fiancee, Regine, whom he broke off his engagement with due to his inability to be her 'man' as he was too occupied with his own mind 'space', as he said. or was he referring to his mother or some Goddess somewhere; his remarried fiancee in the afterlife; or the truth in its own right referred to as a female Goddess, himself being born as a fixed female Earth Pentacles sign (Taurus); yet departed as a fixed female Water or Cups (Scorpio-Lobster); yet clothed and barefooted and all mind over matter; as ginger wants me to make her, into a Goddess which she believed im as a 5 year old; or maybe free her from the grasp of the earth and future reincarnations, maybe.

    *************************

    Kierkegaard was enganged to a girl named Regine Olsen; but broke off his engagement with her as he said that he was too much in his own 'headspace' to be able to commit 100% to her. However, he kept in touch with her for the rest of his life until his death at 42; even if she got married to someone else; often hanging out with her and his older siblings children as all but one of his older brothers and sisters had passed by the time he was 22 when his mother died. He was the youngest of 7 children; she also the youngest of 7 in her family; and though his father thought he would outlive them all; as one of the wealthiest merchants and ministers in Copenhagen, Denmark; he died when Kierkegaard was 27. Only Kierkegaard; and an older brother; a bishop, outlived their father; Mikael; the name of my younger brother. And I wonder, the truth he speaks of above; cold and naked; since he refers to it as a 'her'; was it Regine, his true love; or the love of his mother or a female god or goddess??

    *********************
    Kierkegaard was not like that to get rid of. He continued to rumble, even after his death at the age of only 42 in 1855. One day he strangely appears as what Joakim Garff calls "the Copenhagen letter ghost", as a series of unpublished writings via his estate after his death reach all the way to St. Croix. After Regine read them, Garff writes, the enigmatic thing for her is this: How could she, a married wife, all the time at the same time, according to Kierkegaard, have been someone else's life partner, namely his? Such is the case, Kierkegaard claims, in full, deadly seriousness. He writes somewhere in the papers that Regine is given, that Schlegel was the one she got in the timeliness of the world; but that he himself is hers eternally beloved, and that, incidentally, it is he who ensures her immortality. Period. If she does not quite understand it, it's okay. Or as he also writes:
    "There will always be something inexplicable to you in the whole matter: just accept it, do not ponder on it. You will not uncover it anyways. It seems to me that a beautiful girl like you can demand no more than: a happy marriage - and then, yet, still, to have such great significance for another."

    Geniuses are like thunderstorms: They go against the grain; the terrible People; and purify the air.
    The surviving people have invented several thunder-diverters against or for geniuses: Successfully — so much the worse for the existing ones; for it may succeed once, twice, or even three times - but, the next thunderstorm becomes all the more terrible.
    Of the geniuses there are two types. The characteristic of the first type is like the rumble of thunder; the lightning on the other hand is sparse, and seldom strikes. The second kind has a provision of reflection in it, by which they force themselves or force the rumble back. But the lightning is all the more intense; with the speed and accuracy of lightning, it hits the designated individual targets - with deadly force indeed.

    English translation by Hong & Hong, The Point of view for my work as an author, Princeton University Press, 1998, chapter IA, §2, p. 45:

    If One Is Truly to Succeed in Leading a person to a Specific Place, One must First and Foremost Take Care to Find Him Where He Is and Begin There
    This is the secret in the entire art of helping. Anyone who cannot do this is himself under a delusion if he thinks he is able to help someone else. In order truly to help someone else, I must understand more than he-but certainly first and formost understand what he understands. If I do not do that, then my greater understanding does not help him at all. If I nevertheless want to assert my greater understanding, then it is because I am vain or proud, then basically instead of benefiting him I really want to be admired by him. But all true helping begins with a humbling. The helper must first humble himself under the person he wants to help and thereby understand that to to help is not to dominate but to serve, that to help is not to be the most dominating but the most patient, that to help is a willingness for the time being to put up with being in the wrong and not understanding what the other understands.

    It is so easy to step into the dance of lust; but when it is further away, or mobing away; and it is lust that dances with man against his will: it is a very dreary dance!

    From a sermon on Ascension Day
    "Christ is the Way", section II in For Self-Examination, Contemporary Recommended, by S. Kierkegaard, Copenhagen, C. A. Reitzel 1851, SV3, vol. 17, p. 104:

    A pious man has said that it costs a man as much or even more trouble to go to Hell as to get into Heaven.   It is, therefore, a narrow road, of perdition; but Christ is not the way, nor does it lead to Heaven.  There is enough unrest and anguish and anguish on this road, insofar as the road is truly narrow, the road to perdition, the road that, unlike the other roads mentioned (the road that is narrow at the beginning and becomes easier and easier; the narrow road, which becomes narrower and narrower), is recognizable by the fact that from the beginning it seems so easy, but becomes more and more terrible.  For it is so easy to step into the dance of lust; but when it is furthesr away, and it is lust that dances with man against his will: it is a veryvheavy dance!  And it is so easy to give into the passions that reign - at daring speeds that one can hardly keep up with! - until the passions, after having taken the reins which were given to them, with even bolder speed - Man himself hardly dares to see where they lead! - take him with you! And it is so easy to allow a sinful thought to creep into the heart - no seducer was as agile as a sinful thought is!   it is so easy, it does not apply here as otherwise, that it is the first to cost, oh, no, it costs nothing at all, just the opposite, the sinful thought pays in expensive judgments for itself, it costs nothing at all - before near the end, when you have to pay dearly for this first, which cost nothing at all; for the sinful thought has come in, it makes itself terribly paid. nAs a flatterer, sin most often enters a human being; but when that man has become the slave of his own sin: it is the most terrible bondage - a narrow, an extremely narrow path to perdition!

    The Great is not to be This or Hiint; but to be himself, and every man can do this whenever he wants.

    Of Either - Or. A Fragment of Life published by Victor Eremita. Second Part containing B.'s Papers, Letters to A, Copenhagen 1843, section »The Equilibrium between the Aesthetic and Ethical in the Preparation of Personality«, SKS vol. 3, pp. 173 / SKS-E.

    That which then emerges by my either - or is the Ethical.  There is therefore no talk yet of the choice of something, no talk of the reality of the chosen, but of the reality of choosing.  However, this is the Crucial, and that is where I will strive to awaken You.   To this point, one Man can help the other; when he has come here, then the significance that one man may have for the other becomes more subordinate.  I have noted in a previous letter that having love gives a human being a harmony which is never completely lost; now I would say that choosing gives a human being a solemnity, a quiet dignity that is never completely lost. There are many who put an extraordinary price on having come face to face with some strange world-historical individuality. They never forget this impression, it has given their soul an ideal image which ennobles their being; and yet even this moment, however significant it may be, is Nothing against the moment of the Election. When everything has become quiet around one, solemnly like a starry night, when the soul becomes one in the whole world, then it appears to the opposite not an excellent human being, but the eternal power itself, then the sky differs as if from itself, and chooses itself, or rather, it receives itself. Then the soul has seen the highest, which no mortal eye can see, and which can never be forgotten, then the personality receives the knighthood that ennobles it for an eternity. He does not become another than he was before, but he becomes himself; Consciousness joins together and he is himself. As an heir, though he was heir to the treasures of the world, yet does not own them until he has come of age, so even the richest personality is nothing until he has chosen himself, and on the other hand, even what one may call the poorest personality Everything, when he has chosen himself; for the Great is not to be This or Hiint; but to be himself, and every man can do this whenever he wants.

    The Three Supernatural Virtues

    5.  Faith
    "'The freedom of the act of faith cannot justify a right to dissent. This freedom does not indicate freedom with regard to the truth, but signifies the free determination of the person in conformity with his moral obligations to accept the truth."  - Cardinal Ratzinger for Congregation of the Faith

    6.  Hope
    "I hope for a more better world!"

    7.  Charity
    Like helping an old lady across the street, not judging people and practicing forgiveness at every turn.  Try to lesrn how to count 49 sheep jumping over the fence with every 50th being Agnete; born on July 4th; Independence Day; in 1994 in year of the Wooden metal Dog; lead singer of the Blacksheeps in 2008 and at the same time, a newborn young black wolf taken from her wolves den just a few weeks after I returned back to Norway from Canada in August 2008.
