"Muster the Rohirrim! Assemble the army at Dunharrow, as many men as can be found. You have two days. On the third, we ride for Gondor. And war.

The beacons all lighting, one after another… that feeling is probably my religion.

That and Discworld novels.

Wild Geese by Mary Oliver is one of those poems which has become more and more a part of my soul over the years. When I first read it, it was “no matter how lonely” that I needed; today, it’s “You do not have to be good.”

I imagine, one day, it’ll be “Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.”

Anyhow, here’s Mary Oliver reading Wild Geese, found via brainpickings.

On Hinduism: Hindu people look at their religious life as a continuous and eternal existence rather than just a religion; a way of life. It contains a collection of obligations and customs known as dharma which exceed the recent Christian and Western secularist tendency to see religion as a system of beliefs. It has a wide range of concepts including; karma, methods to attain salvation, and spiritual release.

Yes, that is bad theology. Forgiveness is not a two-step into cheap grace, not even when the harm has ceased happening and the person/people who have erred are ready to make amends. Victims can’t truly reconcile with aggressors while the aggressors are still hurting them. Asking victims to submit quietly to continued abuse, either personally or systemically, is not advice centered in the positive spirituality of any tradition.

Nobody’s asking for my theological opinion, so I’ll just stop there and agree with Shaun King: truth and justice are mandatory steps on the path to reconciliation.

Amen

“Look, without our stories, without the true nature and reality of who we are as People of Color, nothing about fanboy or fangirl culture would make sense. What I mean by that is: if it wasn’t for race, X-Men doesn’t sense. If it wasn’t for the…
