We all need a sounding board.
A sounding board is all we need.
We have to hear what we have to say.
All of our "institutions" are designed
to keep us from hearing what we have to say.

They all tell us what we need to hear.
Churches head the list.

Everything whose job is to keep society going
is killing society
by preventing its access to the source of life:
The individual's own, personal, psyche.

Carl Jung wrote extensively about 
the corporate tendency to replace/destroy
the individual's capacity to find their own way
in the world.

Get a group larger than five members
and no one is thinking for themselves.
No one is listening to each other.
Which means no one is hearing 
what they have to say.
"Group Think" prevails.
And people who do not think like they do
are not allowed into the group.

Divisions do not exist
because differences of opinion
are not permitted.

Sound like the dear old GOP to you?
The world the GOP wants--
and would create instantaneously
with a sweep in the 2024 elections--
would be precisely the world the GOP is 
and wants everywhere to be.

It is the fascist way:
"People like you
make people like me
hate (kill) people like you!"

That is the future the GOP
will impose upon the world,
and the entire universe with time.

Dismiss the danger to your own demise.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
