Control

Much of our pain and problems come from a need to control.  We want to control the future.  We want to control our friends, coworkers, and family.  We are sure if they just did things our way they would be happier.

At the core of it, what we hate is what we define as evil.  We think whatever it is that we are against is wrong.  Fear is a lot of this.  Fear comes from a lack of knowledge.

What one person sees as harmful is often not a problem for another person.  We try to stop them because we want to protect them.  We do it out of love, we think.  However, this is antagonistic behavior, at the core.  We think we are fighting evil. But don’t fight it.  That is what it wants.  Love it instead by learning about it.  Study it to learn why you hate it, for starters.

About betsybeadhead

Hello, and Welcome. My name is Betsy, and I like beads and prayers. Fortunately those two things are more related than I ever realized. You are invited to “like” my Facebook page titled “Betsy Beadhead” and thus see what I’m talking about in my posts when I try to explain something using beads rather than words. This whole thing started because of that. Then I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I just started writing. I string together words the same way I string together beads, and both serve the same purpose. I work at a library, surrounded by ideas brushing up against each other. I draw, paint, and collage. I study world religions. In all these experiences I like combining different things and making new things, and stretching my understanding of what “is” and what “has to be.” You are welcome to share my posts - just please give credit where credit is due. I'm anti-censorship but I'm also anti-plagiarism.
