Lies from the tablecloth

The following blog post is about some of the biggest lies we hear in the world. It’s not that the people that tell us these lies are intentionally lying to us; they are sincerely trying to believe the lie themselves. These lies are stuff that we really want to be true but human nature proves otherwise. Not only will I tell you what the lies are, I will also give ideas on how to make it more truthful in your life.

  1. The biggest lie we have heard all of our lives is that size doesn’t matter. Women that say this just don’t want to sound like sluts or make a guy feel bad for not being well-endowed. Although there are other ways to be well-endowed but that is another blog post entirely. You can tell by the jokes about size that it does matter, or they wouldn’t talk about it so much. If you are small, you just have to hope to have something else going for you to help you overcompensate. For example, find someone that is looking for authentic emotional connection over everything else.
  2. The second lie we tell ourselves, or hear others say, is that money isn’t everything. This never makes sense when you have bills to pay. When doing business, money is pretty much everything. Although we probably should value people over money, but that might make us more of a socialist than a capitalist.
  3. While this list is an exhaustive one, I just picked the top three biggest whoppers. The last biggest one on this list is the lie that there is someone for everybody. Meeting someone special is chance a lt of the time. You do have to put yourself out there. But nothing is guaranteed. Life circumstances may cause you to be alone. Better to be alone than to rush into a relationship with the wrong person. Wayne Dyer once said you can never be alone if you like who you are with.

There is the top three biggest lies we heard all of our lives in this world. The list can go on and on but I just picked the most popular ones from off the top of my head. The title is from a System of a Down song, so it was totally random.

Who wears the pants in the family?

A friend I met in church used to always say, “women, you can’t live with them and you can’t shoot them.” The same friend also said that he wore the pants in the family but his wife picked them out for him.

Nothing could be more truthful. The feminine is more spiritual and has more power in a relationship. The masculine is more stable and level headed and makes the decisions.

In layman’s terms, the man is the leader in a relationship but the woman controls him, or has influence over him. It’s one of those paradoxes in life that will blow your mind.

In conclusion, the secret to finding true love is for a man to find a woman that will make him to what he was already planning on doing in the first place.

Bipolar hookup

Although it is not recommended for two people who have Bipolar Disorder, or any other mental illness, to “hook up”, you can’t always stop love. These two may be the only ones who understand each other. This blog post will focus on the positives of dating someone with a similar mental health diagnosis.

One positive note is you may get a lot of alone time when your partner goes off on a manic phase. I can see it now: “Where is your boyfriend/ girlfriend?” You answer: “Oh, I don’t know really. Off on some mood swing somewhere.”

Speaking of mood swing, that would make a great tagline for a dating profile:

“Bipolar person seeks like-minded person to go on nice, romantic mood swings with.”

You never know, it could be a match made in heaven. As long as one of the two, or both, don’t have anger issues. Anger issues always kill everything.

On a final note, you haven’t lived until you’ve had bipolar sex. That always makes it worth it.

How to find your soul mate

Song of Solomon 2:3. . .”As the apple tree among the grove, so is my beloved among the sons.”

Why do so many people get divorced? Is it because marriage and family values is really on the decline? Statistically speaking, with overpopulation there may be as many successful marriages and families as there always were. Possibly more.

Many people admit they rushed into marriage before they got to know themselves and what they really want out of life. Your spouse is your help mate. Therefore if you don’t know what you want in life, it stands to reason you won’t know what you are looking for in a partner.

Then there are people who simply don’t want to get married. They just don’t want to be alone. Or they want to have children and the traditional family seems the right way to do it.

Many people in today’s generation say they don’t want to get married. That’s not to say they won’t since you don’t always control falling in love with someone. I’m pretty sure that even if they purpose not to get married, they have no intention of committing to a life of celibacy.

Nothing is predestined in life. The Bible doesn’t encourage marriage outside of procreation. Life’s most important relationship is with the Creator of the universe, or our true soul mate. It’s possible to be so fulfilled by divine intimacy that we don’t look for someone else on earth to complete us.

Jesus and Paul both said it is better to not marry than get divorce. It is also better to marry than to burn with passion and sleep around. Being unmarried means not having to be burdened by the cares of the world.

True love is hard to find outside of the divine fellowship. For those that believe in the law of attraction, we attract what we really want.

Today’s bible verse is Song of Solomon 2:3 and compares love to finding an apple tree in a grove. Since the feminine is the most spiritually sensitive, “she” probably draws the masculine into the relationship. So much for the man leading since he only wears the pants she tells him to wear.

The man leads by doing what his lady intuitively leads him to do because they are spiritually joined together by God long before they ever walk an aisle, or have sex for that matter. There are other ways to be naked with someone besides physically. More on that in another blog post someday.

Tribute to Mom

I have to be careful showing pictures of headstones on social media. Someone took it as a death threat. I found my mom’s side of the family’s cemetery by “accident”.

I was headed north on 75 in McKinney, Texas when I recognized a landmark that I remembered passing on the way to previous funerals. I followed a winding road back to a plot of land my maternal grandparents purchased decades ago in the small town of Climax, Texas near Princeton, Texas; where my grandparents grew up and got married in 1938 until his death on February 7, 1990.

I just missed Mother’s Day and her birthday is coming up so this picture came to mind that I took a few years ago.
