RE: How does one handle uncivilized savages?
Hey Diana, I want to thank you for sharing your opinions and thoughts because it allowed me to articulate some things I feel very deeply and strongly about that are obviously on the other side of the norm. I've said what I feel like I can to do my best to share my point of view on this subject in this moment.

I do want to clarify that I didn't feel as if the man had come on to me sexually in any way what-so-ever, in fact he compared me to his sister in the same breath that you assume that I assumed sexual intention. To be fair though, my personal profession that I use to support myself is that of a waitress - where I must learn to and act upon being the same giving personality with all types, and if I couldn't handle minor flirting, I wouldn't have a job. As it is, I guess my point is again that we shouldn't totally shut people out for one faux pas, or assumed faux pas. Repeated faux pas, sure, but we definitely shouldn't blame others for the mistakes that they didn't make - I didn't want to be afraid of that man because there have been a small handful of men in his situation who were dangerous. I especially thought I shouldn't be afraid of that man after he started saying kind and affectionate (nonsexual!) things. I had to trust him as a Creator in his own right, and in my ability to co-create a situation out of love.

Again, thank you for allowing me to project my lesson onto you by engaging me in this discussion. I realize my point of view is in most things, on the bonkers side of the fence, so I appreciate you letting me know that you were uncomfortable by how I approached it.
There is no magic greater than honest distortion toward love.

I don't think your ideas are bonkers. You seem like a kind and loving person to me.

I'm not uncomfortable, however. I like different points of view to come into my sphere of thinking and feeling. I do like to be understood in what I try to relate. I realize I am picking on semantics, but words are what we use here to communicate, and I'm rather specific in that area. I'll guess that your husband will get that since he is a writer. Smile

The one thing this thread has made clear to me more than ever is that our intellectual responses can be very limited. The problem I see with that is I perceive a trajectory which does not involve language at all, and I suppose that's not a bad thing. Communicating via telepathy would be so much easier, yet I feel there is a huge gap between us now and a telepathic race.

RE: How does one handle uncivilized savages?
I've meditated on this matter a bit, having had to come to peace with some form of violence during my time in the armed services.

It comes down to this; Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. You can kill someone if you would truly wish someone to kill if you were you in their place. There are some actions that I would wish to be killed for in order to prevent me from doing them or repeating them. If you can genuinely appreciate a rebuke of this severity then you can kill in good conscience.

Although simple in principle, meditating on this will reveal this principle is extraordinarily keen. It's application must be precise.
