Open to more than one interpretation; not having one obvious meaning.
(Excerpt line from Imam Interview in the Guardian)
“It was foreign to my ears.”
They commissioned original research and discovered that some brands, like Chloé, had never used a non-white model and others like YSL, Versace, Gucci, Donna Karan and Calvin Klein hadn’t for years. “It sends a message that our girls are not beautiful enough,”
(Currently, as I scribble, aka type)
A T.V show is playing in the background. A Priest is doing/ going through the motions of the sacrament or whatever it is called.
And an answer dawned upon me as the Preist/actor spoke: “This is my Blood”
as the cup of wine was passed from disciple to disciple.
Firstly by passing the wine ( “My Blood” a metaphor for his holy harmonious state of living or you could say enlightened way ) he, Jesus, is saying that we are all one. My Blood is exactly the same as yours.
(No difference between Jew and Gentile ) (nor Muslim)
That delicate and sacred cup, of wine, of meaning. The lesson of sharing no matter your religion, slave or prostitute no matter what, you have to give or share! if you can then you can no pressure and if you have nothing then someone will share with you.
The Chalice of wine, a metaphor no doubt understood by Christendom’s open minded faithful. I myself am just a layman, a person seeking humanities theological unifying truths. I have watched people being converted or joining a religion on something as coincidental as looking for an answer and on turning a page whether it be the Bible or The Quran an answer has presented itself, and, that is them, hook, line and sinker. And they then become one of the faithful of said religion. however, this usually can lead to the mind becoming closed, off to any other spiritual input which is counter-productive to the essence of religion. is not seeking knowledge key to spiritual growth and understanding. especially if a jew wishes to discuss with a Christian or a Muslim. There is and has been always the two or three major sticking points between Islam and Christianity. Completely forgetting one of the most beautiful words ever spoken by a human being “Love thy Neighbour”
in fact, after the emergence of Islam and today, as the religious war that quietly rages across our T.V screens, we can, if we so choose to turn the volume down or, watch the news unfold, disaster upon disaster which after 6 months of watching natural disasters, floods, famines, disease or the unnatural barbaric actions of Man will have you going to see your Doctor because you are depressed. reminiscent of The horrors of Torquemada who also declared the “Glory of God” after burning a woman at the stake who was dammed as soon as her neighbour accused her of witchcraft which was either a jealous wife, or she was pregnant, and the Man (obviously pious #sarcasm) but in truth, probably raped her. (no street lights in the villages of Dark Age Europe) The man (rapist) a local man of standing Declared to the congregation “That he did not have sexual relations with that woman” and so it must be the devil who she has been fornicating with.
(enter stage left) The mob mentality ” Burn her Burn her BURN HER!!”
I wonder! as Yasser Arafat’s Life lay ebbing away did he wish that his coffin would not be paraded through the towns. As just as the Palestinians cause is!. And it is truly justified. But it will only be resolved through understanding,
I come bearing an olive branch in one hand, and the freedom fighter’s gun in the other. Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand. 2000 years ago Jesus said: ” Violence begets violence” and whoever lives by the sword will die by the sword”
Many folks, who I like (well i don’t like to) to pigeon hole and name “the comfortably numb” People, people I personally know and have a great love and admiration for many of them and at times I miss them (one day I hope to get most, if not all of them together for a weekend of Wine, food and cheer. I like the life they have worked for and carved out for themselves and under different circumstances, it is a life I could and would slip into with ease. as I have done with their friendship over the years. I have tasted this lifestyle, several tastes, throughout a decade or two. Yet, the intervening twists and turns of fates hand, and at times letting the North wind and its kin direct me. It seems a bachelor I am possibly (Even though I have a dream, of marrying underneath 100 cherry blossom trees) a bachelor it seems I am destined to be. But as for my friends (who on reading this I wonder if they know who they are?) of working/middle class, they do not want to rock the boat, they want a nice, good, family life, especially if, they between them earn 35 to 50 Grand a year
But this metaphorical boat is not a Yacht captained by the individual family unit. It is a boat that, the whole of humanity is sailing upon.( President to Peasant ) which is a part illusion. in reality, your house is a cabin on this, the ship of life, you may just happen to have a port side view or, depending on the material wealth you may have a top deck suite polo lounge and V.I.P Disco Cocktail Bar.
Once a person is indoctrinated into a religion it becomes almost impossible for them to even look at other religions and in some cases even question certain practices or have an open debate on meaning, metaphors. I have heard many people when speaking about God or religion they always seem to speak in the possessive “my church” my God” the selfish gene
Secondly: “The Selfish Gene” (Richard Dawkins) need not be for, if we share what we have, from the poorest to the richest of humanity then everyone will have and, no one will be in need nor in poverty.
The selfish gene is, depending on context (modern day trait of greed under the pretence of survival or survival itself) it is an instinct for more at the expense of others or just an opportunity at the expense of others further down the FOOD CHAIN?
Whether meant or not, the “selfish gene” Stems from our prehistoric ancestors’ disposition in them helping their families’ to survive during hard winters and times of famine. (I suppose you could link it to the Fight or flight response) to have!! Or have not?
“There is no room in the Inn.”
It is in my opinion (never having read Mr Dawkins Book) more a survival mechanism than a selfish gene.(maybe he goes on to say this) But in these days, some live extremely well and too many just survive. It is very well named “The Selfish Gene”.
“Money Talks and bullshit, fishes for food, out of an Ironclad skip. A rusty dystopian Fish Tank for blind fish and below average alienated human Beings. Why below average? Because the selfish gene is stronger in others .i.e. (Some if not many do not give **** (Comfortably Numb)

“Hey!! You! you in the corner, with the big belly, General of many stars, if you need more cash!” Just ask! I.ve discovered this froggy word, something like erm!?“ carte’ Blanchet” and, Mr General, I can give you one.
“My God, my Daddy would be proud of me”. El Presidente Trump thought to himself. He dares not say this out –loud, even though he wanted to dance naked and shout it from the top of Trump Towers. He was way too wary after the recent false news wiretapping, bugging shenanigans.
Seriously- joking aside.
There is abundance that grows upon the face of our Mother Earth. Yet the keys (if ye wish to seek them out) to nature’s larder will be found, jangling and hanging like a carrot on the stick like the jailer’s keys, the keys used to lock us poor asses down. The keys to the material kingdom clasped in Diamond Gucci bracelets by the people who need not visas nor any passport control when landing their Lear jets on privatised runways on, what we are told is foreign soil. But what is Natures true larder? It is for sure not poverty and its opposite number. It is something higher than us. In this vast cosmos do you not think that it “this cosmic phenomenon” has a voice? And perhaps, occasionally this cosmic force endows a human with a cosmic carte blanche a cosmic passport of sorts.
“A passport of truth”
Now, LOL “Diplomatic Passports!” I do sarcastically lol. For IN the fine print it must read: Diplomatic terms and conditions: slave trading, Arm dealing niggers, Asian and Caucasian whores.
