    Say something profound

    So, for those of us that need to grow in maturity and wisdom, what are some lessons you learned that you would tell someone so as to avoid making the same mistake, or achieve the same success.

    In other wards, "say something profound".

    I'll start. This is in the occult section because mention of Benito or praying to him is to be confined here or the pit, with extremely rare exceptions perhaps.

    Were it not for Benito Mussolini's wife, I would not be a Fascist, or defend, or even really like Benito, not have a female as my favorite and most influential author of all time, and not feel like I'm bound to both of them, or really feel much zeal for apologetics in anything, or be well versed in stuff.

    What it essentially means is that the best thing in my opinion that Mussolini accomplished, greater than taking over a first world Democracy without bloodshed or votes , greater than working economic miracles in multiple countries, and even greater than his revival of the Roman Empire, was who he chose to marry him.

    Because I will plant seeds that will bloom some day, and never would have without her.

    Well, by all rational explanation , Mussolini never should have married her. She wasn't good looking really. Also, as an athletic , intelligent , street fighter, sword dueler, public speaker, and politician, Benito actually had a lot of women who wanted him.

    In fact, Rachel turned Benito down multiple times though because she wanted someone less in the spot light, that he actually had to pull a gun on her mother when she threatened to get police involved, ( just to make the engagement take place).

    But if Benito hadn't actually done what appears to be very reckless, illegal, and insensitive, none of those others he could have married (most likely) would have written a book about him (long after his death) after all the shenanigans he pulled.

    Many facts about Mussolini would simply be unknown. And Rachel doesn't whitewash him but points out he made some huge mistakes.

    What I'm saying though, is sometimes what looks like a terrible decision, can turn out to be the best decision you've ever made. The decision in it's intrinsic nature was not good, but it still accomplished the greatest good for him imho.

    I'm clearly supposed to live in the Twin Cities. I got here in the back of a squad car. The fault accomplished the greater good.

    Because of Mussolini marrying Rachel, it actually caused me to live in the apartment I live at, so I could be here to help my neighbor's brother who got killed on Mussolini's birthday, July 29 2020.

    And Rachel and I have the same birthday (for guests).

    Sometimes bad decisions accomplish the greater good. Can you think of any instances like that?

    Or say something profound?

    In the end, Mussolini is an inspiration both in some of his positive qualities but also in his negative qualities. I never want to promote a war of aggression or any types of oppression to learn from his mistakes.

    I also don't want to hurt a wife with infidelity were a miracle to happen and I ever grew up.

      Yahweh actually translates into "I am".

      It's the name of God. Being a Franciscan you know this , but not all viewers do.

      God told Moses " tell them "I am" sent you".

        Pater Noster

        Understand that I'm 3rd order, so I am not limited by the 1st order, also known as OFM. My perspective on Christianity is limited to the 1st and early 2nd century. After that, the church reintroduced the rules of the Hebrews in an effort to force church government onto the masses. It was a racket that continues.

        So I am not "popular" with the friars who continue to suck the Pope off. You can't imagine the shit they say about me. But that's to be expected since they consider 3rd order to be contrarians. This is not true, but it's convenient.

        Ultimately there is only 1 sin after the time of Christ, taking advantage of another. All of the other commonly listed sins are just variations to add layers to church law. The more complex, the more lucrative. 3rd order friars are not interested in that. And most of us live in solitude and rarely congregate with others of the 3rd order. We have a tendency to get into trouble when a few of us get together.

        Then there's me

          Vīta brevis, ars longa,
          occāsiō praeceps,
          experīmentum perīculōsum,
          iūdicium difficile.

          Life is short,
          and art long,
          opportunity fleeting,
          experimentations perilous,
          and judgment difficult

            I know there's a quote thread but I feel like you can appreciate a quote but it doesn't have to be profound

              Want some real fun? Track down the origin of the "7 Deadly Sins" (Originally only 5). These have been a fantastic way for the church to maintain control over ignorant peasants and kings alike. Consider Plato's cardinal values, often distorted over the ages.

              You really have to sift through it all to see where the simple greed of men changed the course of faith. The very idea of today's mega-churches is preposterous.

                  I told Benito Mussolini I wanted to be his servant and proposed my idea of how to establish peace and harmony among all nations and Religions , and have the world burning incense to the Benevolent Caesar as Patron Saint of the United Nations.

                  He responded "I have the perfect idea of how you can begin doing that. Go clean your room and do your dishes.

                  Those faithful in little matters shall be faithful in greater ones."

                      That's not at ALL what this quote is about. Unfortunate that you project something religious onto it

                      Vita brevis. Life is short. Ars longa. Art is long. The interpretation is that art outlives any human life. And the onus on this quote is that its totally up for interpretation, several scholars can't come to an agreement about what this quote means which is so meta, art is always up for interpretation as is this quote.

                      But go off, I guess

                        Back at ya.

                        I could never cook my own dope though or I'd blow up. Just curious if you cooked product as a Franciscan?

                        You don't have to answer, I could just imagine though a Friar Tuck looking fella cooking Meth while praying, then selling his products to locals to pay his way as a Holy Hermit.

                        That would be a riot!

                        I know you were third order, but still! Lol

                          I'm about to school you guys right now and drop some real serious wisdom that will awaken you. You ready? Here goes:

                          As the river flows, so shall the salmon.

                          The sky clears reflecting the clearing mind, all is as it is.

                          As the turkey gobble, gobbles, so does the universe.

                          After an intense rainstorm, a rainbow will often appear.

                          And when things are going horribly in your life just remember this: The man that sleeps on the floor, can't fall out of bed...He just can't.


                          Wooow, right everyone? If you don't understand it, its because you weren't ready to receive my supreme ocean of wisdom. It was probably too deep for you. Don't worry. One day you will be ready.
