    Even more important, is that writing allows one to consider ones words carefully and to revise if the initial idea was not perfect, and it is easier to revise before the delivery than it is with spoken words.
    Id like to add, that depending the nature of the complaint, the written form can be used as a proof.

    Thanks for this post Peter L.

    I can't always abide, however, and it should be remembered the Goethe hid up in the highest room of his castle when the gates were besieged, leaving the footmen (servants) and other staff to deal with the invaders.

    Always appreciative,
    With love,
    your friend.

    I am very glad that you liked it. Writing it made me think about nihilism, something that I have seldom thought much bwfore, and I realized that nihilism is absurd.
    Expressing things in a positive way is something that I aim for. If it can't be put pleasantly, or without nastiness, then it might be better not to express it. I have that that works well in complaining about poor service, etc.

    Yes, I think there is always hope. Hope is the thing with feathers. As they say -- it was done a while back some experiments where rats were in water -- well, anyway they lived about 25% longer if they could see a possible landing zone, even if it was taken away. The inhumanity of the experiments aside (although not for me eternally), the info from them is very important. . . and valuable I think. Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh says it simply; "hope for tomorrow allows us to bear a hardship today." and I'm always doing my best to simply encourage the three things. . . Self-faith (in others), trust in their good outcome, or hope, and then of course peace.... and health... I do my best always.

    In terms of my life interactions with others it's my primary thing to do this way, to above all help people have faith in themselves, and from there do what they may do. Or what they feel best.

    Swami Vivekananda and Shantideva both expressed this; i.e., the former said, "The greatest religion of all is to have faith in yourself," and the latter said, "it is the only duty of a Bodhisattva to encourage faith or increase faith," the latter is paraphrased, and the first one more or less the same. -- I am with you completely on the Goddess, thing, to me it's absolutely clear and simple that the elemental form of the universe is Female, i.e., the Life-giving principle, Life-sustaining principle of Love, and whatever else we may call God is more connected with Goddess than with male forms. But it's only a minor thing for instance, but Goddess and Earth, Earth is a mother and so forth. . . but like as you said, that's an aside!

    As for the rest, Yeah, I guess I can simply say as before that it's very nice, the thing you said. I mean how yo use words and you do not say any negativity but you still express what you feel. I appreciate and like that a lot. I could write much more but I guess just wanted to say this for now.

    I loved reading this. Actually I read it five or six hours ago. I should have commented sooner mayhap but at least I'm now. Nice to see... I like the way you use words without negativity yet clearly stating your view and understanding. It's powerful and good. So thank you..

    Lol I like the ghetto parody by Bloodgound Gang:

    "Yo, yo
    This hardcore ghetto gangster image takes a lot of practice
    I'm not black like Barry White, no I am white like Frank Black is
    So if man is five and the devil is six than that must make me seven
    This honkey's gone to heaven
    But if I go to Hell, well then I hope I burn well
    I'll spend my days with J.F.K., Marvin Gaye, Martha Raye and Lawrence
    And Kurt Cobain, Kojak, Mark Twain and Jimi Hendrix's poltergeist
    And Webster yea Emmanuel Lewis 'cause he's the Antichrist
    The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
    The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
    The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
    We don't need no water, let the **** burn
    Burn ****, burn"
