Its a common case of immaturity, when you believe what your friends tell you about a complete stranger, but Its a sorry state of immorality, when you believe what complete strangers tell you about your friend

“A wicked person listens to gossip and a liar gives ear to a deceitful tongue” Proverbs 17:4 

“Gossip is a dainty morsel eaten with great relish” Proverbs 26:22

They say you are what you eat, what you ingest on the inside eventually shows up on the outside, garbage in, garbage out. So why do people listen to gossip (garbage) so readily? Well, we eat when we are hungry or lacking in energy and the nutrients necessary for us to be strong and healthy, it is no different when it comes to our emotional and psychological health.

If you don’t feed and replenish your soul with what is positive and beneficial or with something of substance that sustains and lifts you up, then you will begin to crave the things that feel good but only prop you up temporarily.

Gossip is that sugary sweet stuff that gives you a momentary rush of energy but diminishes rapidly bringing you down even lower, ready for your next fix. Empty people, devoid of what it takes to be healthy on the inside ‘need’ to listen to gossip; it makes them feel better about themselves and better than others. It’s a desire/craving rooted in selfishness and ego. It’s in a weak person’s interest to believe anything negative and terrible about others.

Proper investigation into whether or not what you are hearing is true is too time consuming; your need to satisfy your ego is much more urgent to you and therefore takes precedence over waiting to find out what the truth is, you can’t wait that long nor do you want to. This is why you succumb to gossip every time, you have no resistance and no incentive to resist.

Therefore how you respond to gossip reveals far more about you than it does about the person being slandered. It exposes what’s on the inside of you, the emotional poverty, emptiness and weakness or the contempt, hatred and jealousy you ‘already’ have for that person. It leaves you feeling exposed, naked and ashamed.

Emotionally healthy people don’t delight in hearing the worst about others, they want to believe the good; they want proof, they want truth straight from the horse’s mouth rather than questionable information from an unreliable source.

Lack of inner contentment and the need to prove that you’re the ‘good one’ the ‘nice one’ will continue to drive your inquisitiveness or curiosity about other people. It’s an unhealthy characteristic; a nosiness that can take you to even lower depths like invading a persons privacy for instance, which most ‘decent’ people would find quite disturbing and a bit creepy not to mention immoral.

Unchecked this could lead to a much deeper psychological problem i.e. Bullying, Stalking, Harassment, Sabotage and other types of destructive behaviour.

People are not property, you don’t own them, they don’t have to answer to you or explain everything about themselves to you; you have no ‘right’ to know anything about them, and to behave as if you do is arrogant at best and psychopathic at worst.

If you do desire to know something about a person, then healthy, open and honest communication ‘with that person’ is the only moral, ethical and decent way. Ultimately nosiness and gossip will destroy and embarrass you. The pleasure and delight doesn’t last for very long, it’s a poison that contaminates and darkens the soul, your condition is worse than before and so is your need for the gossip that makes you ‘feel better’. It’s a vicious cycle, maybe it’s time for a new diet, a new mind set, a new you.

Jekyll and Hyde
As I have already said, I do love a great actor and if they’re in a musical all the more so. It’s such a shame I didn’t get a chance to see this but I’m quite sure it was an unbelievable performance.

I still love this song my Cousin did with Whitney, I think the story is so true to life. One woman determined to get want she wants and the other trying her best to warn her. Oh well I guess we all have to live and learn that we cant always get what we want, and what we want may actually destroy us in the end. Its a shame this song wasn’t a big hit here in the UK considering it had major label involvement, nevertheless still a great song

 

Remarkable Similarity: Lina Morgana and Lady Gaga

Lina Morgana was a singer who allegedly committed suicide by falling from a roof/ balcony just a month before Lady Gaga made it big. They apparently lived together prior to Lina’s death. Many people are a little suspicious of the official verdict.. well I suppose it is pretty easy to make a person’s death seem like a suicide (by falling) for the simple reason the deceased is not here to say what really happened, so I guess we’ll never really know. Anyway Lina’s mother claims gaga stole her daughters image, style, clothing sense etc etc   

http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2010/09/lady-gaga-stole-identity-from-lina-morgana-mother-of-late-teen-c/

As if everything about this woman (gaga) wasn’t bizarre enough, there have been an abundance of stories surfacing on the internet for years about her using her friend Lina Morgana (who she also collaborated with) as a blood sacrifice to be famous! ….CRAZY right!, she is not the only one to be fair, there are many stories about other artist doing the same thing, Nikki Minaj ‘supposedly’ sacrificing her cousin!?  The list goes on! who knows what to think!….it sounds like a script for a movie right? with different cast members playing a role….madness!

Watch this Video and see what you think.

The idea of Human blood sacrifices is nothing new though, every creed of people under the Sun have practiced ritualistic human sacrifices to pagan Gods throughout the ages, take a look for yourself.

Lets Talk Business: Time to negotiate or re-negotiate

There are many kinds of business deal’s out there; some of them good some not so good; life is a bit like a business, you are bargaining all the time, the daily decisions you make either pay off or fall through, the time you invest in careers or interests can appreciate or depreciate the quality of your life and the people who come into your life are either assets or liabilities. Everything we do in life is adding or taking away value, so you could look at it as an another example of ‘profit and loss’
There has been much talk about artists selling their souls and making deals with the Devil, however there isn’t as much talk about the deal that God makes or wants’ to make with people. My question is this; in the business of life who would you want to go into partnership with, someone who has fallen? or someone who has risen?

The term supernova is derived from nova (Latin: “new”), the name for another type of exploding star. Supernova resemble nova in several respects. Both are characterized by a tremendous, rapid brightening lasting for a few weeks, followed by a slow dimming. Spectroscopically, they show blue-shifted emission lines, which imply that hot gases are blown outward. But a supernova explosion, unlike a nova outburst, is a cataclysmic event for a star, one that essentially ends its active (i.e., energy-generating) lifetime.

 
Superstar or Supernova
I love astronomy, I have been fascinated with the stars since I was a little girl…I jotted down some thoughts in the pad on my phone a year ago 0ct 4 2012, forgot all about it.
Supernova
Dying Star
Light gone out
Once shined so brightly
Glorious
Gases explode within
Could not contain your own strength
Self destruct
No one destroyed you
Fire burned inside you
Tormented and traumatised by your own greatness
Internal stresses and struggles
Conflict and pain
Collapsed from the strain
Slowing fading away
From the universe displaced
Fallen from grace
Life so brief

 
  
Reminds me of these verses
"Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen to the earth” Revelation 1:19
