Yes Coach I understood that you and Scot have a rich history. Plus I
would add this made my heart sing with gladness when Scot shared about
that the other week. Itís a special blessing to you both, that you two
can after all these years renew your connection with each other. And
yes John Iím a bit sentimentally happy about your being blessed in
that way, or in any way for that matter.
I donít know Scot very well yet, but my guess is that he was fine with
you not jumping in to support him as you put it. Iím thinking he knows
your support is with him without you needing to do that. And I donít
think he feels you let him down. Besides its blatantly clear and as
you reiterated that the other day in your post alongside ours at one
point, that you two undoubtedly take, at very least, a very similar
side of the issue about war and peace.
I Ďseeí that this projection theme could easily be taken way
beyond Ďpracticalityí, which in my experience there with it, what has
been the case with most of the references in regards to projections
you have made in your last post about me projecting.
Itís a virtual catch 22, or rather catch all. Every idea expressed,
and even experience, could be considered as a projection. Actually
everything and every no thing could be considered a projection, every
thought, every concept, every sentence, every word; even every letter
I type is a type of projection/concept. It could even be argued that
even what I experience with my five senses is really only a
projection. Anyway I think/project you get my point.
As far as your political agenda having been promoted here, thatís
blatantly obvious, as has been mine. And as for Scot possibly thinking
you could be playing on my side in these regards is utterly absurd to
the extreme. And even if he hasnít read all the political Ďwranglingí
you have done here in class over the last few years, he could not have
missed your last bout the other week, now obscured from our view. Itís
all so passionately human. Does it stop me from loving you? I think
you really know the answer to that by now.
Do I believe itís harmful to your being? Sure I do, but so are many
aspects of my own being to myself. So I simply try and afforded you
the grace to accept what I obviously am unable to change. Would I like
to change it about you? Of course I would. Do I believe it would
increase your effectiveness to be all you are created to be? Yes,
undoubtedly. Does it cancel the over all affect your (for the most
part) loving being has on me? Certainly not!
As I have come to know you I feel completely free to be myself here
with you whether it is a good or bad actor that I happen to be being
at the time. And as far as authentic goes your one of the most
authentic people I know, except when your not. And as far as Scot
being authentic the other day in regards to his political position he
seemed to be, as far as I can tell yet.
And now the biggie and letís try and not pretend, or even make nice-y
about it. You do not respect my position on war, nor do I yourís. Nor
should either of us expect the other to do so. To you, mine is
absurdly dangerous and harmful to mankind, and for me itís the same
with yours. And neither one of us could possibly respect the other in
those regards, nor should we. But that doesnít mean I donít have
tremendous respect for you in Ďotherí regards, Ďmostí other regards
for that mater.
