you too stand up

This one sounds like a 2009 response manifesto to Psalm 132

Stand Up Comedy

Love love love love love…
Love love love love love…

I got to stand up and take a step
You and I have been asleep for hours
I got to stand up
The wire is stretched in between our two towers
Stand up in this dizzy world
Where a lovesick eye can steal the view
I’m gonna fall down if I can’t stand up
For your love

Love love love love love…

Stand up, this is comedy
The DNA lottery may have left you smart
But can you stand up to beauty, dictator of the heart
I can stand up for hope, faith, love
But while I’m getting over certainty
Stop helping God across the road like a little old lady

Out from under your beds
C’mon ye people
Stand up for your love

Love love love love love…

I gotta stand up to ego but my ego’s not really the enemy
It’s like a small child crossing an eight lane highway
On a voyage of discovery

Stand up to rock stars, Napolean is in high heels
Josephine, be careful of small men with big ideas

Out from under your beds
C’mon ye people
Stand up for your love

Love love love love love…

God is love
And love is evolution’s very best day

Soul rockin’ people moving on
Soul rockin’ people on and on
C’mon ye people
We’re made of stars
C’mon ye people
Stand up then sit down for your love

Love love love love love…
Love love love love love…

Shattered dreams

I finished “Shattered dreams. My life as a polygamist’s wife” by Irene Spencer.

Former Fundamentalist Mormon speaks out about her life as a second wife in a polygamous marriage. She was married at 16, endured enormous hardships, living for years without common benefits of civilization, like water and electricity, was sharing her husband with 9 other wives, was mother to 13 children, and was mostly unhappy and depressed. She did it, because she believed in the afterlife as an exalted goddess, which could be obtained only by living “The Principle”.

Hart rending as it is, I was amazed by the strong convictions implemented during her childhood that did not leave her mind, and despite the doubts, carried her to a distant lands and a life which many have no clue about. Real brain washing works. It is sublime, perverse and totally controlling.

The best news is, that she has found God’s love at the end of it all. Currently she has 119 grandchildren and 37 great-grandchildren.

Read more in her website IreneSpencerBooks.com and an interview with her.

Good video called “Lifting the veil of polygamy” introducing stories of people who lived through similar circumstances.

you can buy a bride in Egypt for $ 8,000

According to BBC NEWS, a 92 old man did not receive permission to marry 17 year old girl, because the gap between the spouses must be no bigger than 25 years. Like always, there is a loophole. If you are foreigner, and want to marry someone who is more then 25 years younger then you, just pay $8,000, on her account in the bank, and she is yours. Last year there was 173 happy Egyptian, young and rich brides taken to God knows where…

If this is not legalizing human trafficking, what is it? It is a fact, that poor rural families will “sell” their young daughters to whoever wants to pay. And with the Muslim societies obsessed with virginity, men will pay a lot of money… unfortunately.

nie znęcaj się

nie znęcaj się nade mną

oprzytomnieję bez biczowania

nalożę karmazynowy chałat i pofrunę przed siebie

szukać tego co przepadło bez wieści

gdzie jest ta miłość co nie ustaje

jej woń wyparowała

wokół tylko stęchlizna pustych słów

znaczonych beznamiętnym czekaniem

uciekła mi ta wariatka

popytam przechodniów

może co widzieli

może ktoś zdobył jej nieśmiertelny autograf

odsłonię swą zapłakaną twarz

może usłyszy mój wrzaskliwy krzyk

i ocali mnie od

rozpaczy zapomnienia

from vampires to Christ

out-of-egypt.gif road-to-cana.jpg

I rarely read magazines. In the last issue of TIME I’ve found something. Have you heard of Anne Rice? Well, for the last decades she is known in USA and all over the world for her writing genius.

She is known as an author of the “Vampire Chronicles” series ( one of them is “Interview with the vampire”). After 38 years of being an atheist, she says:

“…faith came back to me. I had to stop writing about vampires, because they had been a metaphor for lost souls. Instead, I made up my mind to concentrate on Jesus Christ.”

What caused it?

“Americans like to believe we turn to religion because of an accident or the loss of a loved one, but in my case it was simply the culmination of searching. I wrestled with a lot of theological questions, and then one afternoon, I thought, I love you–I want to go back to you.

One afternoon. One thought. One love.

That’s what we do at IHOP, in a way. We pray a lot for those “one thought” moments to cross peoples minds, to pierce their hearts. We pray a lot for those “suddenlies” to invade peoples souls. We pray for those desires to “come back” to the first love to arise from within them.
