    My happy place is within me and all around me, Wherever there is beauty, distinction and true art,

    Wherever there is the creative tension of opposing views that gives birth to it,

    Where the inspiration that brings about its evolution can be found, and the music that is the song of enchantment can be heard.

    My happy place can be found in the best and worst of men...as inspired by the gods of love, wisdom and beauty.

    It exist in air and intellect, and in the hearts of those who have no faith and yet believe.

    Happy places and such, Sigh:

    You know in one way new age thinking is good, as it is akin to magical thinking, and that can open many doors in ones life, even symbolically.

    On the other hand it ignores the laws of identification, and throws logic out the window, and that really sucks. Renders the whole approach impotent.

    It hurts people's aesthetics because the approach leads to a lack of fine distinction, movies, music, novels, films and culture overall suffer, because of this.

    I have always agreed that different schools of thought were valid pragmatically, for different types of people.Everything in context and few things misapplied to the wrong person to avoid confusion.

    My hate for new age thinking, is not about race, or orientation, or any of the things its supposed to be about.

    Its a flawed confused approach, that actually cases such animosity. I hate things that are not about what they are supposed to be about. Hypocrisy and delusion. Weakness. Confusion.

    I think many of these people through there actions insult the minority they are supposed to be representing out of ignorance. There actions encourage vocalized even propagandized retaliation and conflict.

    Partly, Its a subconscious imperative to re establish order on one level.

    In my view this is because of human nature and majority sociological and genetic inclinations some of which are hard coded into people...they can be suppressed intellectually but well fester in the subconscious mind, and cannot be permanently denied, an attempt will simply cause psychological disorder..instinctive reaction..but mixed up in there heads because of what there deep minds are interpreting as irrational data.

    Hence irrational Bias. Raw and primal. Repression, and acting out.

    So much Denial, delusions, and self justifications which are not really even needed...though alot of people that make an issue of this, on some level think they are needed and hate it.

    Some of this is because some of this people in there secret heart, fear there are in the wrong, that they are breaking a taboo, so they need justification and collective reinforcement. Whether this is true or not.

    The issue is there, so they are going to be very vocal and afraid of anything they precise as a threat to this collective reinforcement.

    Yet sometimes they are the ones with the issues that have no peace with themselves and not the people they want to view as a threat.

    That's easier you see, harder to face yourself. Better to even encourage animosity. externalize the threat. Slap a label on people...as a reactionary thing, to thrive on it while opposing it from that point of view. Its a complex.

    Cut the BS out of it, look at these issues logically, without assuming anything, in its proper context, and few would have such problems, there making them.

    One trick is to realize there is nothing to fear from the truth and once embraced there is no reason not to love yourself. Be pragmatic. There is no need for a justification here. No need to lie to yourself, or fight needlessly.

    This makes an issue of things that should be non issues otherwise.

    I'm happy enough, I views these...things...I say as simply public service announcements well..just because, that is all. I don't hate people, just bedlam. I often think, maybe in a way, I care about other people too much.

    Sociology would like a word with you. Life is not clean or logical. It's messy and emotional. Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.

    Rift is my Cheers.

    I'm only truly happy during that moment immediately following a hate tell for wrecking some casual in a warfront.

    Maltie has a sight for you if you can find him. Can't link it here since it's a name/shame thing.
