it’s a mad world after all


if i had three personalities, i might resemble Blogland. Tantrums from hell, mega-selfie posts, mentally and emotionally compromised confessions, and even goats on parade…they are all here. 

i took a turn, took a spin, found myself driving…oh so carefully…through fields of mental mines from “life,” “religion,” and all sorts of other previously unexplored venues, to find that the world is indeed in trouble. but not from the Russians, neo-Nazis, terrorists, or clandestine shadow governments. No, the world is in trouble because of selfishness, wickedness, and mental pollution- (in other words- sin, deception, and self-deception…and, of course, sin)

truly, although i do like to analyze single issues, the reality of the multitudinality of personal problems here in blogland makes me wonder how many white coated shrinks the world may need on a never-ending contingency basis. i read one post that sounded like a couch confession, complete with overtures of “people please analyze me, i am sick.” i read another that was the most self-centered piece I have ever read, and that includes the story of Narcissus. One twenty-something moaned about a lack of sex for a week, but then expressed a hatred of honesty in relationships. And it goes on and on, like a really bad informercial marathon.   

when i went to “Christianity,” i found so many posts that had nothing to do with Christianity at all. It appears some people must think we are stupid, or may just be stupid themselves, to post a Hindu blog or yoga piece on “Christianity.” It is like anaylzing condiment bottles when asked to choose an apartment to rent. Or, taking an electric blanket out on a hot date. (ok, i couldn’t resist the humor). in short- or long, bloggers who do such things make themselves look stupid…and none of us want to look stupid…right? Right? 

perhaps it is just a sign that tripolar is becoming the norm, now that bipolar is very too trendy (like when every doctor that didn’t know what was wrong with you diagnosed you with…fibromyalgia…the late 20th century/early 21st century answer to everybody’s favorite disease…consumption) Or, is it that so many people are living webdream lifestyles, caught in a self-centered fantasy world encouraged by the “like” button? I wonder…

can i have a piece of your mind? oh, not a large slice, just a thought…and please no gray matter on the keyboard…thank you.

    The blogworld is quite the adventure at times. I never know what to expect when I’m here. That’s why I keep a very minimum footprint on WordPress. I’ve run into some really nice people and some very un-nice people on here. I tend to only go to blogs that one of my trusted friends have referred me to. That’s how I found your blog 🙂

    I used to go to the WordPress Reader and look up blogs under the tag “Christianity”. I don’t do that anymore: too many shallow, worldly Christians that suck on a milk bottle. I do read a lot of good blogs under the tag “A.W. Tozer”.
