I read something this morning that has me a little uneasy and really thinking.
There's scripture that says something along the lines of "if your right eye causes you to sin cut it out because it's better to lose an eye than go to hell."
The actual passage is more eloquent than that but you get the gist.
This is VERY difficult for me because it could be argued that my eyes have been the number one source of sin in my life.
And just to add insult to injury Jesus said that sin happens BEFORE the actual act. In other words if you even have an adulterous thought you have sinned whether or not you ever act upon it.
Well that REALLY sucks.
Luckily for all of us sinners my interpretation of Jesus' words is that it's mostly a scare tactic to make us more aware of our thoughts. It sucks for me because I like to say gd on occasion but according to Jesus even if I stop myself from actually saying the words I've still sinned because I thought them. Well hell. I can't win.
Here's what I've decided. I'm not going to cut my eyes OR my tongue out. What I WILL attempt to do, though, is look upon others with a purer heart and attempt to change whatever thought processes that led to me wanting to say gd.
I'm pretty sure God's goal is not to make us all perfect but just to get us to try a little harder. I can do that.
And so can you. :-)
First of all I'd like to thank you if you are a woman who has graced me with her presence in my dreams. In real life you may not even know I exist but for whatever reason you decided to show up very sex-deprived in my dream world and eager to fix the problem. How exciting for both of us!
I'm nothing if not a realist, however, and as amazing as your performance was in my dream it's highly doubtful you'd be able to live up to that in real life.
Now I know what you're thinking. You're like "whatever, I'm better than you could ever imagine, mister man!" Well maybe so but let me explain.
When you're performing at your peak chances are you're highly attracted on a physical level with the man you are "engaged with" let's say. I'd say fucking but this is a family blog. Lol. Well it used to be. That didn't last long.
Anyway the point is that if you are a fantasy of mine I'm obviously attracted to YOU on a physical level but chances are you might not share that same attraction to me. I mean you might but I don't see women fainting when I walk through a bar so I'm just guessing I'm no George Clooney (or whoever your personal McDreamy is.)
That being the case you I can't see you attacking me with the same fervor you do in my dreams. Now I'm not saying you would be bad because there's no such thing as bad sex but living up to a "dream performance" is hard for even the most motivated woman.
All that said I would like to extend an invitation to any woman who has lustfully attacked me in my dreams to attempt to surpass that in real life if she'd like. :-D I'm a pretty busy dude but I could probably fit in you... err fit you in somewhere. My number is 469...
So yesterday I was baptized and yes it was a special day I'll never forget. But a little lost in the joy of being born again was the fact that I also became an official Mungarian by joining Munger Place church.
So now I'm a Mungarian. But what does that mean? Well I think the most important thing it means is that I try a little harder each day to worry so much about fulfilling my OWN needs and start to concentrate more on fulfilling the needs of those around me.
You've probably heard more than once in your lifetime that you have to "look out for number one". And man have I done my share of that in my life. One could argue I've never looked out for anyone BUT number one.
I believe being a Mungarian means I need to begin to stop being so much about self and start reaching out to at least one other person each day and simply asking "what can I do to help YOU today?"
Today I begin my new life as a humble Mungarian on a not-so-secret mission to help my fellow man so we ALL can be fulfilled and lead healthier happier lives. It's a task I won't take lightly.
Have a wonderful week and God bless you!
I tweeted my next blog post was gonna be about either toy making or pot. I don't have any experience with the former so I guess we'll talk about pot. Do you smoke it? Do you farm it? Do you sell it? What is your affiliation with pot?
I personally don't do any of those things but I'm not opposed to those who do.
One of my first ever home pages on the interwebs (way back when we used to call em home pages) had a tag line that said "A friend in need is a friend without weed." I thought it was pretty clever/funny but it was way before I even tried my first funny cigarette.
A woman came by the page once and felt compelled to send me an email about something she had read. Of course I took that to mean that she wanted to date me so I asked her out. She said "sorry I don't date potheads." That still makes me chuckle to this day.
Although I did finally get "higher than the Empire State" (to borrow a Fun line) later in life I never really became the pothead Miss Prude wouldn't date.
I guess I'm just waiting until it's legal in all states. Then I'll be good to go. Man. ✌️
Hi! Happy Saturday! I'm just testing out my new blog I set up today to see how it looks when I attach a vid. What I LOVE about this blogging platform is that I can just send an email from my iPhone and I'm blogging. Nice.
