    You insulted problematique as well. Getting defensive is also the result of having experience with dark. Welcome to your dark side. It's not a bad thing and I'm not insulting you.

    Please stay on topic. This about views on attitude, not about getting upset or making assumptions about one another.

    If you are insulted then on some level you aren't happy with my read, that's your problem, not mine.

    That is off topic, presumptuous, and rude. If you want to defend light, use logic, not degradation. Also, don't assume anyone is depressed because they think there is a balance between light and dark. Read up on Carl Jung. He wrote a lot about the dark self and the collective conscious.

    -1 for love and light lol

    back to the topic....

    While I think it is masochistic to seek pain, I disagree with avoiding pain. If a person feels and they put their feelings out there, it is with the risk of experiencing pain. However, avoiding the risk also means denying the pleasure that can be experienced. Many pleasure seekers also ruin their lives by ignoring how their actions affect others. There is a balance.

    The phrase 'just sayin' really gets on my nerves more than someone saying love and light.

    The 'love and light mantra'? Or people who are in denial that they have a 'dark side'?

    That as a mantra, especially of those who deny the dark side, or deny that there is a balance between the two.

    The term "medication" you used, points out how you see your own reflection - your own judgement.. you're scared. Thats why you keep takin what others say offensively, and when you get called out you get defensive about it.They only come off that way, becuz of what you've created and also an indicator of what you're ignorin within yourself that you need to 'face'.

    There is a difference between balance and imbalance. There is also a difference between constructive sharing and trolling, Sarah. If you made your point, feel free to unsubscribe to my thread. Everyone else, please let's not sink to her level. Thanks. That's my last response to you SJ. I respect your right to give in to your dark side while ignoring it simultaneously. Bye. Love and light! *wink*

    Question for those who read all that banter: is SJ practicing love and light?

    Anyway, the majority seems to think that there is a balance and that some "love & light" folks do have balance while others don't. I saw some decent explanations too. I still haven't seen a well thought out defense for acknowledging only light or only dark. So who wants to explain only acknowledging one part of the whole? Would be interested for the read.

    I know some 'love and lighters', and they are pretty annoying to be around. But, they have been at this for years and I have talked with them about it. (They are a couple with a child.) They believe we can either choose to be happy or we can choose to be angry. Since it is about choice, and anger is so uncomfortable--they choose the happy path.

    This is one of my favorite things to go on about

    I can promise and swear to God that love and light exists and does triumph. No matter how naive some one might to be to the tragedies of this world, there is a source of all which is love and light that exists always.

    It doesn't matter what you say, Love and Light is evil and good. It's like saying I love you to everyone but not showing it. The realness of it is that people that are full of love normally spread light automatically like skin falls off them. The evil ones have to make up up for it constantly by sounding nice to sensitive ears. "Love and light" is worse than being sworn at by some people, does this mean they should be exorcised? Or people just throw fillers at the ones devoid of what they think is substance.

    It's Monday, love and light to everyone for the whole week.

    I show some futurism - Filippo Tommaso Marinetti

    1. We want it sing l' amor of the danger, l' habit all' energy and to the recklessness.

    2. The courage, l' daring, the rebellion, will be essential elements of our poetry.

    3. The literature excited until today l' thoughtful immobility, l' ecstasy and the sleep. We want to excite the aggressive motion, l' feverish insomnia, the step of race, the deadly leap, the slap and the fist.

    4. We affirm that the splendor of the world has enriched of a new beauty: the beauty of the speed. A racing car with the its chest adorned with big like tubes to snakes dall' explosive breath. ... a roaring automobile, that current on the machine-gun seems, is more attractive of the Victory of Samothrace.

    5. We want to praise all' man that holds the steering wheel, whose ideal auction go through the Land, thrown to race, be too, on the circuit of its orbit.

    6. It is necessary that the poet itself lavish, with fervor, splendor and munificence, to increase l' enthusiastic fervor of the primordial elements.

    7. Not v' is more beauty, if do not in the struggle. No work that have not an aggressive character is able to be a masterpiece. The poetry should be conceived like a violent assault against the unknown forces, for them overcome itself in front all' man.

    8. We are on the extreme promontory of the centuries!.. Why we should look at us to the shoulders, if we want to break through the mysterious doors dell' Impossible? The Time and the Space died yesterday. We live already nell' absolute, poichŤ already created l' eternal omnipresent speed.

    9. We want to praise the war — alone hygiene of the world — the militarism, the patriotism, the gesture destroyer of the libertarÓ, the attractive ideas for that dies and the scorn of the woman.

    10. We want to destroy the museums, the libraries, the academies d' every species, and to fight against the moralism, the feminism and against opportunistic every cowardice or utilitarian.

    11. We will sing the large crazy upset from the work, from the pleasure or from the uprising: will sing the multicolored tides and polifoniche of the revolutions in the capitals it; will sing the vibrating nocturnal fervor of the arsenals and of the sites burnt from violent electric moons; the greedy stations, divoratrici of serpents that smoke; the workshops hung up to the cloudy pei twisted threads of their smoke; the like bridges to gigantic gymnasts that the rivers climb, flashing to the sun With a sparkle of knives; the adventurous steamboats that smell l' horizon, the locomotives dall' spacious chest, that stamp on the tracks, like enormous horses d' steel bridled of tubes, and the flight some aereoplani sliding, whose propeller chirps to the wind like a flag and seems to applaud like an enthusiastic crowd.

    _________
    these wheels of steel would pierce the dark fantasies of
    the coin toss of the, "evil ones".
