Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

A work in progress. Explaining words and phrases that I often use. Noting new and interesting ideas. Discussing certain verbal warning signs. There’s no social justice or political correctness here.

Offsite links open a new window. Underlined links are internal to the site.
Uppercase links go to the lexicon. Script links go to the timetable.
A dashed border and red banner means I don't agree with the defintion
 or that it is a dangerous idea.

the Journey

The Journey is that movement along the way that can't be predicted. It's juicy, it's messy, it's mind blowing and it’s supremely passionate. It's ecstatic in a way that passivity never will approach.

The Journey is SUPPOSED to drag you out of your comfort zone and your expectations and your perceptions and understandings. You can't walk between the worlds if you have both feet and nine fingers firmly anchored in one.

The Story is told while the Journey is lived.

You can only be responsible for your Journey alone because it is YOUR Journey and no one else’s.

the Journey versus the Story    - The Story is Not the Journey.

An experienced faith differs from a revealed faith. It’s the Journey compared to the Story.

The Story is told while the Journey is lived.

I am not saying that one is superior. But one is active and the other passive. The Story is not the Journey and the Journey is not the Story.

A revealed faith always depends on what someone else says. The marvelous thing is that a Story can become a Journey if you just go a little beyond the nice polished gate and the carefully maintained path.

In an experienced faith, you will have to go out and do. That’s why so many pagan books never go deeper than cookbooks or the 101 level. Experience requires taking that first and seventh step into the unknown.

At some point in a Journey, it's going to be you and the Divine. No masks and no untruths allowed.

With a revealed faith, the answers could be in the very next book you read. A Story could become a Journey, but it takes hard work and stepping beyond the safe space.

How do you explain a Journey without moving into a Story? I am not sure you can.

Judeo-Christian heritage

In politics, this phrase supposedly signifies something almost holy, something beyond question, something beyond mere man’s law.

In other words, it’s another “sit down and shut the fuck up!”

The people who use the phrase have appointed themselves cultural gatekeepers and arbiters. They believe that they are the ones who decide what does and does not fit in our society. And since it’s a matter of faith and not law, it can’t be challenged on legal or moral grounds.

After all, who are you to deny the Judeo-Christian heritage? You’re merely human, after all. You don’t have the inspired wisdom of the Almighty on your side.

just one word - J1W

A spellform woven into language that triggers an experienced meme. One of my specialities.
