The Theory

I heard somewhere that the language that we speak limits and heavily directs what we think and how, simply because that language is a monopoly.

This may be so, and that makes bi-lingual important so that we break out of subjective isolation.

From Milan

I took an Italian flight attendant from Milan to the Mall Of America in my shuttle bus. He was a poet and writer. He noted that poetry in other languages cannot be translated into Italian, or from Italian into another language without some essential meaning and beauty being lost due to translation.

It just reminds us how hard it is to communicate with comprehend what another is saying. It is easiest when we share the same native language.

I imagine that we also use language in a unique, personal, singular manner, and none around us can translate the language that we use with utter clarity and flawlesss discernment.


Curry Favor

I am not one for currying favor, but it may  not hurt to be friendly towards and put out the welcome mat  for Good and the Good Spirits. To get to heaven, we need all the helpl that we can enlist.

Psalm 34, 5

Invite God to visit you and be with you always: "I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears."

Go On Offense

The conservative featherheads, fatalistically allowing Democrats to abuse them as punching bags by being RINO, timid and abandoning Trump. We control both houses of Congress and the Presidency. We should be on offense balancing the budget, advancing pro-gun bills, expanding military spending, building the wall, and so forth.

Consrevatives must stand by their principles, and push forward ever forward, fighting the good fight, fighting evil, prevailing and extending the cause of the Good Spirits.

Psalm 33, 22

May your light shine upon us, Dear God: "May your kindness, O Lord, be upon us who have put our hope in you."

Competent

Solid, permanent, positive self-esteem  and lasting sense of wellness is best supported by individuating and being very competent, very creative, very cutting edge at at least one skill in your life. If you can do something very well, and you and all around you know it, never again will you feel so worthless and empty.

You can do and become, and that is a most uplifting set of accomplishments.
