I have no desire
To fill my soul
With made-up pain.
My soul matters
My response to On Soul Pollution.
Aaah, I do love it. Especially your last line “my soul matters”. Yes it really really does. Best wishes ❤
They all do, don’t they OB? Thank you! ❤
Very nice and so true
I liked Ocean Bream’s take. I don’t need fake misery in “entertainment” to give me more angst.
I will go and read it!
Made up pain? Sorry, I don’t understand. 🙂
Ocean Bream wrote about entertainment that has negative stuff in it. Like, movies, etc. I really connected to that and this is the comment I left her. I don’t like to read or watch anything with made up horror in it. It just, to borrow her words “pollutes my soul”.
Oh, I understand. Thank you for explaining it to me!
You’re welcome ! 🙂
😉 I would like my soul to be as good as your kinders.
There’s some great advice in those words.
I hope I am never the creator of bad for the soul stuff.
I don’t think it’s possible.
You are super kind. ❤
It sure does matter. You betcha!
Thanks Paulette! 🙂
I firmly believe that our ability to create technology has vastly outstripped the evolution of a system of ethics to deal with it. We have access to images and stories 24/7 that are so horrific, or violent, or hateful that are simply more than our spirits can digest. It’s important to treat our spirits tenderly, gently. They are important.
Carolin, I so appreciate this comment. It is exactly how I felt when I read Ocean Bream’s post. Though you managed to say it much better than I !!! You nailed. it.
That’s deep. We worry about so much and yet very little of what we worry about actually comes to pass or is even real at all.
I am learning, though haven’t yet mastered, that worry is a waste.
You bet the soul matters. What are we without it? Soul is the art of feelings. 🙂
Well said Tess. I have never heard that, but I like it. Tremendously!
Good response..well said
I’ve been wondering why I have grown to dislike violence on TV – now I know, Well said Colleen,
Thank you Paul. I often sit with others who are talking about this show or that movie and whether we should all see it, I am always the one saying “go without me”.
That it does.
😀 Thanks Huck.
Indeed, your soul matters and added pain is unnecessary.
It was an interesting read, and as a writer thpugh I struggle with it as I am exploring a darker part, yet, I see the value in maybe not sharing everything I write or maybe see of there is another way to express it?
I wouldn[‘t want someone to not express their talents and creative nature Niaaeryn. Some people really enjoy these genres. I just know I can’t read, or watch, blood and gore, and kill and mayhem entertainment. It just goes to my soul and I can’t get rid of it.
🙂 But some people are MUCH better at processing stuff out than I am.
