    That is very good. I have experienced both refusal and fulfillment... he he...

    "Man doesn't have a rational soul. Man IS the rational soul of the universe." - Solomon Levi

    I was just having a vision...


    I Ching triagram: heaven, man and earth.


    The sulphur of a plant, mineral or animal carries the color, odor and soul of it.
    It is really the sulphur which mediates between mercury and salt, man between heaven and earth.

    One can replace 'warrior' with 'christian' (or any other religion), 'vegetarian' (or any other path of sustenance), 'heterosexual' (or any other orientation) and countless other examples.

    To paraphrase Shakespeare: "There is no right or wrong but thinking makes it so."

    A few great dialog quotes from the movie Harvey from 1950 (thanks dev for recommending it, it's brilliant!):

    Dr. Sanderson (The Psychiatrist): "We all must face reality, Dowd, sooner of later."
    Elwood P. Dowd: "Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it."
    Veta Louise Simmons: "Myrtle Mae, you have a lot to learn, and I hope you never learn it."
    Veta Louise Simmons: "Oh, Myrtle, don't be didactic. It's not becoming in a young girl. Besides, men loathe it."
    Wilson: "Who's Harvey?"
    Miss Kelly: "A white rabbit, six feet tall."
    Wilson: "Six feet?"
    Elwood P. Dowd: "Six feet three and a half inches. Now let's stick to the facts."
    Elwood P. Dowd: "You see, science has overcome time and space. Well, Harvey has overcome not only time and space, but any objections."
    Dr. Sanderson: "There's the 'birth trauma' - the shock of being born..."
    Elwood P. Dowd: "That's the one we never get over."
    And the best (IMO) for last:

    Wilson: "Is he alone?"
    Mr. Cracker (The Bartender): "Well, there's two schools of thought, sir."
