Sharing My World — SYW

SYW Share Your World and the questions are below; with my answers.  Nice to know that someone wants to know what I think.  I love it!

  1. Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not? (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise): Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions).

If no, there is no anything as Truth or Facts, just whatever pleases man, like we have today. 

  1. Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul?

Humans have an immortal soul that will live forever either in Heaven or Hell at the end of time; Animals have a mortal soul that dies when they die. However, I like to believe that nothing on earth is more significant than what is in Heaven, therefore perhaps animals are in Heaven, hopefully for those who make it to Heaven God will allow our pets to be there, wishful thinking on my part. 

  1. Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”)

Because God has already judged them.

  1. Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader.  Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating. While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence.

An ideal leader, in my opinion, is anyone who keeps or at least TRIES to keep the ten Commandments, since if that should ever happen, we will be blessed by God and have peace throughout the entire world. Not just talk about it but encourage it. We don’t live in a perfect world, and my ideal is a dream, so I will continue to vote for the lesser of the two evils.

Sharing! and do we really care?

Share Your World wants to know!

The prompt from this blogger to Share Our World; the form of questions to answer which are: 

  1. What is the meaning of true love?
  2. Do acts of kindness have a motive? 
  3. If we live in a civilized world why do we see so many distinctions between rich and poor?
  4. Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world than in the real world?

 Number one: The meaning of True Love is to serve when we serve our love grows deeper. Serving each other in marriage will always be a success; this is why a mother loves her children, she serves them from the beginning of their life. 

Number two: If your acts of kindness are done only to boost your reputation (for example, the politician) WRONG! Acts of kindness should always be done for the sake of God, not to feed your ego. 

Number three: Because people have different opportunities, choices and we are not robots, the poor will always be with us, it is written.

Number four: The virtual world is to me what I am aiming for, my goal, the real world is what I am. We are called to love our neighbor as ourselves. Therefore we are called to love ourselves.

Questions with Answers … thoughts

My SYW POST for Share Your World
The questions with answers

Why do we seem to respect the dead more than the living?
I believe it is because after a person has died, we see all that was good in them, whatever deeds in life negative, forgotten.
The goal for all; to save our immortal souls, there is a life beyond this life! We respect the dead because we have hope that they died in God’s grace and have achieved their goal.

Why is beauty associated with morality? Or not?
Having physical beauty is a grave temptation, and especially today, many are weak and fall for the superficial comments they hear from others. A beautiful woman attracts attention, and often it is attention from the wrong person. Mothers train your daughters to be humble, modest, and ladylike.

Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?
I think the emotions wrought from gadgets are different; they are there but not as genuine as natural emotions.

Is there a perfect life? What’s your version of an ideal experience if you care to share? A perfect life is doing the Will of God for that is the only possibility that will bring you happiness and peace of mind. Many will say; what is the Will of God? Begin with knowing the Ten Commandments and pray daily for the grace of discernment. “Ask, and you shall receive.” Most importantly, when we experience the failures, disappointments we should unite them with the life of Christ, that always helps.
The perfect life is if we save our soul, there is only one tragedy in life, that is when we lose our soul. If you put popularity ahead of God’s Will you are heading in the wrong direction, most of the time the majority is on the wrong side. Human respect is an evil.

“Human respect is excessive regard for the opinions or esteem of other men. … Concern for the opinion of others may lead one to act against moral principles and thus to do evil in order to gain the esteem of others.”

I am grateful always when I look back at my life, (now aged 79) my digresses straying away from God, offending Him, my mortal sins, still He kept me from dying in my sins. I was led out of my Faith, into a conciliar form of religion. Ecumenical in nature, forgetting the First Commandment, everything I learned was put on the back burner.
I am grateful I finally found my home again, the Traditional Faith.

Thank you SYW for the opportunity to share!
