Is Meryl Listening?

While relaxing this afternoon I thought of a certain actress, out of the blue.  Meryl Streep came to mind. When that happens I think, "Must be my Angel wanting to tell me something."  I feel badly as I have not seen that much of Meryl's body of work.  I read about her on Wiki, she has had quite a career. I read about her ideas on faith.  She consider's church going as a source of solace for people.  My father defined it in similar terms.  Meryl does not believe in the power of prayer.  I was told by my angel to try to explain  faith to her.  I use mental free form prayer as well formula prayers. Free form prayers spring forth from ones consciousness.  Formula prayers are like mantras in that they calm the brain and connect to a source of God energy.  The Rosary for instance also combines mental imagery that is a type of time travel.  When you connect to Jesus through the mysteries you relate your own life to Jesus's and join your suffering with his.  It is not really for a source of solace, it is more a source of power.

The power extends to immortality via salvation.  If you are not saved then what?  You might be damned which might mean that you don't experience anything after life.  Perhaps endless blackness or maybe a different form of life, such as an eternal return of an insect.

Other things about Christianity that are remarkable is a dedication to the poor.  There is a Social Justice goal in Roman Catholicism.  There is a neat newspaper titled, The Catholic Worker that bears checking into.  It is emblematic of the true faith.  Dorothy Day was its founder.

My faith has never been for me just a source of solace.  I have just had some major realizations about my reality where I have been betrayed by many people, as a slave.  I did not think, gee, I feel better maybe I can get some solace from church.  It is more like....This is all for You, sacred heart of Jesus, guide me in my next step.

Meryl, you have had a very rich life minus the faith game.  Good for you, I am happy for you.

  Oh yeah!  The Christian faith teaches us to love our enemies.  If I have any enemies out there, I will do my best to love you!
