No thoughts of men are kept private from God.
Have a lovely evening.
How can you be free if you ignore it?
Just because some one is petty doe snot mean they cannot have moments of clarity.
I would not like to think i would miss that moment or them.
I still dont think one person in this thread had defended the possition of ignoring adequately.
I still do not understand.
I'm actually moving away from the ignore function now. I've taken most off, and am just about to un-ignore the rest.
You wont regret it I don't think if not for these reasons;
If we think someone is worth ignoring and do so we can never be proven right or wrong about them or ourselves.
So what would be the point in trying to prove ourselves if we were never able to allow someone else to prove their selves to us?
What can a man who blinds himself ever have seen?
What is the point of sight if we close our eyes?
The only way anything can be seen is to see it.
What is the point of knowing if we will not know?
What is there to understand if we ignore understanding?
What can be understood without the ability to understand?
You cannot cheat a cheater unless you are cheating yourself.
You only cheat yourself by becoming one.
By ignoring others you are only ignoring yourself.
Don't miss yourself by missing someone else.
Enlightenment is all in making yourself available for it.
How can you be availed without the able ility?
I will always need and be ready for any negative conclusions of mine to be proven false.
Negation of a negative is always worth effort and hells hardships as it will ultimately bring me more positives and closer to heavens blessings.
And if worse comes to worse and the negative is forever a negative at least you weren't corrupted by it.
Going through hell brings you closer to heaven,
even if you never get heaven at least you aren't got by hell.
Fighting hell is about fighting hell don't think you will ever get anything other than knowing you are fighting hell.
I like all of this. Maybe when I had less of a grip on my manners, it was justified 9ignoring). Hard to say. But at the moment I feel at ease. Indeed, I have no one on ignore now. Furthermore, I've decided to phrase myself with more concern with my audience from now on. Instead of using my favorite words, I'm leaning in to other people. Choosing the more neutral and open word. I want a true recognition of the value of the other. We have all lived finite lives. The other has ALWAYS seen something we haven't. Now the other might not be articulate, or good at getting this out. But kindness will only help this. And of course I should endure a certain amount of condescension and rudeness with a smile, because I have been guilty of the same.
Is the opposite of the ignore button the thank you button or is that the friendship option? (but people often ignore their friends as well)
Ignore is blasphemous to me.
Your presence and friendship is worth me going to bed a little later.
And I think the last line of my previous post was supposed to read;
trust others and there will be 'less' cause to doubt yourself.
Freudian slip perhaps?
I soul every meaning of my word and soul every word of my meaning.
I word every meaning of my soul and word every soul of my meaning.
Why not trust everyone until they give you a reason not to? It's really not that hard to do. Then there is no need for that whole doubt yourself bit.
