It Must.

When it's dark like this, Heaven and Hapiness shine brighter in my mind's eye.
As dark as it is, there can no longer be any doubt that light exists.
As a dark thing gets darker, we only notice that there was once a time when more light was with us.
And by that realization we are forced to believe that light is with us now.

1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

It's not just for masturbation anymore, kids!

I used to think that the sexual trials I faced were the end-all, be-all of temptation.
But this place is far more slippery.
The place where an emotion can be a sin.

"Be angry and sin not..."
Is it possible?
It must be.

Which other of my emotions can carry sin?

And I still feel alone, and remarkably misunderstood.
But isn't this common to man?

Hmmm...I think every emotion has potential to become sinful (if we let it), because we can't experience 'pure' emotions with flawed DNA.

We...are the ones that screw up everything G-d designed as holy/sacred. That's why we have to fight daily for it.

"And I still feel alone, and remarkably misunderstood. But isn't this common to man?"

Yes and no. It's ironic kinda...because in a way man has done everything to make every other living creature go away aka make room for his domination. And now that he's kind of achieved he wants company!

We're a selfish brood of organic masses.

Yet I share the sentiment. Maybe it's time for us to focus on understanding ourselves, and ignore this innate need to 'share' ourselves with other people. At least for now, at this point in the journey.

I can't believe I'm still typing God the Jewish way..."G-d". It's so unecessary.
