Barry’s Cheese

Barry walked into the church and straight up to the preacher’s perch.

Barry got down on his knees and prayed to God for some cheese.

Please God please, give me some cheese.

Please God please I’m on my knees.

God sent down his little toe, it said to Barry, “no, no, no”.

You will have no cheese just now if you want cheese, you need a cow.

“Ah,” said Barry, “A cow I need.”, and once again Barry did plead.

“Please God please send me a cow, send it fast, send it right now”.

So God sent down another toe, it said to Barry “Don’t you know?”

“If you feel you need a cow, you need some seed and a plow”.

Barry got back on his knees, looked up at God and started to plead.

“Why do I need seed and plow, when you just said I need a cow”.

God sent down another toe, which said, “This might come as a blow,

but to keep a cow it needs to eat and crops are what brings milk to teat”.

Barry got up off his knees and said to God without a please,

“I want my cheese and I want it now, you know where you can stick that bloody plow.

Why God do you bring me such pain, you know full well there’s been no rain.

We’re in a drought. I’ll reap no crop. You’ve sent no rain, not one stinkin’ drop.”

So God came down with cheese in toe. Scraped it off and said, “LET IT BE SO”.

I’ll give you what you asked precisely, but if had of just asked me nicely.

You might have got your rain as well.

Have your toe cheese, enjoy the smell.

I hope you’ll learn your lesson well”.

Hope

Hope is Good
Truth is Good
Don’t take hope
Don’t fucking lie
Lying is corrupted data
Spreading lies means people are walking around with corrupted data
Truth is not bad
Truth is not ugly
Truth is reality
Learn about people
And you learn about yourself
Learn from people who don’t use truth as a baseline corrupts your mind
Narrative thinkers build on what they believe
Narrative thinkers don’t let in ideas that conflict with their beliefs
Narrative thinkers are lawyers
They argue their case
Twist truth for their case
They distort reality and the world
Critical Thinkers are scientists
They don’t make truth black and white, Good and Evil
They seek truth
They know they don’t know
Because that is the truth
They add and remove
Hope is necessary
Stop shitting on this world
For something, you don’t fucking know
But you spread it like it’s the only thing
Fucking lies corrupt
We are divided because you turned a belief into a certainty
and it’s not
Thousands of books to expand your mind
And make you less ignorant
Don’t choose just one
Or only books related to just one
You have something to offer the world
Don’t marginalize what you offer
Which is an antidote to some modern problems
All so you can say it’s all true, it’s all true
Fucking lies
Be part of the whole or fuck off
Your not helping

Sin & Forgiveness

Jesus did do many marvelous things
But the biggest of all is related to sin

That forgiveness is real
if you let it in
And the second is that
we’re all sinners within

It’s not really magic
or something from above

The first is a value
based on truth and love

The second is science
and the nature of man

Which works with or without
the idea of God’s plan

That people are faulty
and make all as sorts of mistakes
And in bad conditions, we can turn into snakes

But we can learn to do better
Be better and grow
And learn not only to reap
But also to sow

A society that allows for forgiveness
Is robust, right and strong
For we’re not always tormented for the things we’ve done wrong

So my advice to my brethren
You can take a sign

Is forgiveness of others
Brings peace of mind
And forgiveness of self
Is close to Devine

For we all can be snakes
When we are lost
Hurt or broken
Or when ugly words
Have been to easily spoken

Or when we don’t have the knowledge, understanding and guidance

About our drives and psychology and things we’ve learnt through good science

About the nature of humans
Our evolutionary drives

That causes us to do things that aren’t always right.

So stop thinking you’re bad
Or good for that matter

For if you do
you lie to others and yourself
Your lies cause mind corruption
And are bad for your health

You’re human and faulty
Capable of good and bad
Don’t deny your own shadow
It’ll send you half mad

Through knowledge and understanding
You can be a great person

Who’s aware of their drives
And their motivations

And you’ll learn to treat others
with more love and patience

These words that I say are more than just statements

They are keys to your growth
And the growth of others

Remember:
We’re human and all make mistakes, including yourself, that you’ll have to face.
It doesn’t mean your bad or evil, it means it’s time to forgive yourself for your sin, and others who sinned against you.
And know that you can have forgiveness, you can give it to yourself and others.

Let it all go
Recognise your faults
And see the world anew.
