I do appreciate the bologna detection kit, but I can't understand it. The antecdotes and articles other posters here are giving me are much more helpful, and written in a way I can understand. I do not know what ad hoc, ad/post hominum, phallacies, etc. mean so I generally avoid articles with too much of that terminology. I'm just telling you what is the most easy-to-understand for me, that's all. If someone wrote that bologna detection kit with words I could understand, it would be easier for me to understand it, and then I would remember it.
It was a nice gesture, but for now is a bit TMI for me.
I'm a music teacher, and if I were explaining a concept to you, first I'd find out what, if anything, you knew at all about music. There is basic terminology that we as musicians understand, but if you are not a musician, rather than being shocked that you don't understand something, or telling you to look it up, I would try to tell you the definition in words you could understand, concepts you could easily grasp, so you could remember it. I'd tell you the definitions first, and then, after a few years, once you have a knowledge of basic definitions, then you can start looking stuff up for yourself because now you'd understand it. Know what I mean? That is how I teach my voice students. I start at the very beginning. Find out where they are first and then go from there, you know?
If something is helpful to me, it really does have to be easy. That's me. It may not be the rest of the human race, but that is me. The kit may be written in plain English for you, and for everyone else here, but it is not written that way for me.
But thank you for the gesture. I appreciate it all the same.
Anyway, hey Sunshine,
The examples from personal experience you gave are extremely helpful. If somebody is being welcoming and friendly, I take it as a good thing, and am not sure where the line is, because I myself am a friendly person (I hope) and wish to be treated as such. I will be more on guard next time. I always thought that new-wage (I love that term. It made me laugh. Who came up with it?) gurus always practiced what they preached, because if they didn't, why would they preach it???
I thought they were honest enough to say, "do as I say, not as I do. We're hypocrites but we don't want you to be, so don't be like us." I mean, if you're going to be a loving, compassionate, honest person, you'd be honest enough, or have the integrity enough, to admit that your lifestyle or the way you treat other people doesn't fit what you preach, and you would say, "I'm not fit to be a guru. I don't know what I'm talking about. You really shouldn't follow me."
It's almost laughable, you know, how all the gurus, and even those who claim not to be, are saying, "follow your intuition (except it'll be right when it comes to me). There's other people who'll take advantage of you out there, watch out for them (except me.) Most channeled information is inaccurate or given from a place of fear (except mine.)"
It's kinda funny how everyone says "there's other people, living or dead, who you must watch out for. But I'm not one of them, I'm from the light". There's a whole lotta people saying that. It's always somebody else who's the bad guy, never them. Or, as I'm sure you know, the new-wage movement has no concept of right and wrong. If you do have one, you're considered judgmental, and they say that's bad. Yet they say you have to have judgment to survive. It's almost as if they're saying, "you can have judgment for this but not for that. There are no rules except for the ones I make up. There are dire consequences but you're not supposed to be afraid. Fear is bad. Let's have a world without fear, we'd be so much better off. You're limitless but this physical world has limits. But you don't have limitations, and don't think for a second you're limited. Limitations are bad."
It's almost as if they don't know what they're talking about. Well why don't they just admit that then?
I think fear and doubt and limitations are a good thing, if you keep them in check. I wonder what this world would be like if nobody had any of those things. The gurus make it sound that the world would be much better, but I don't think so anymore.
I think my BS detector is coming in the mail piece by piece. Wish the box didn't say "some assembly required" though... Wish they made pocket-size ones!
