belversion of the interview meme: answers 12-17


(from this meme -- if you want, feel free to go there and ask me 2 questions)

12. (from notashamed) If you could have any kind of super power, what would it be and why? This can be anything, not just the typical super powers (flying, etc)
dayum, I dunno! I think it would probably be to see the spirit world with my physical eyes. Then I could see wounds in people's spirits and know better how to help them, and I could see my prayers in action, and I would SEE the effects of my actions and be better able to avoid hurting people, and be more confident in the things that I found to be helpful. I imagine it would be scary a lot of times though...

13. (from notashamed) If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, which would it be and why?
heh, I'd have to say the Bible. If I could only read one thing, I would want it to be something I could learn from no matter how many times I read it, and I have found the Bible to be that way (I've read it cover-to-cover three times, and read certain books (within it) many times). I don't believe the Bible to be infallible -- because for one thing, NOWHERE does the Bible say that! It simply says that it's all good for learning from. And that means learning the WHY behind things, not just the WHAT. For instance, when Paul in the NT says for women to cover their heads in church, that was never intended to be a permanent thing -- it was a concession to the times. It's seen as negative now, but it was progressive for the times because before then, women weren't even allowed in the temple. So yeah, learn from the WHY, not the WHAT. Plus, it's very long, lots to read. ;-)

14. (from daghdha) What personal needs do you feel you fulfill by showing nude photographs of yourself to others? Would those needs be fulfilled if no one but you saw those photographs? Why or why not?
Hm. I suppose the need to be honest. It's a big part of my life and something I deeply believe in (nudity as purity and beauty as uniqueness), so if I were to keep it secret, that would be dishonest in my opinion. Being honest and open with all people is something very important to me. If someone shows interest (and I believe that they either believe or are open to a belief of nudity as purity & beauty as uniqueness) then I will share. Like Angelina said, "I would like to be open with the public. I would like to not keep secrets or be careful when I talk. I don't want to have to plan things. I want to be outspoken. I want to say my opinions and I hope they're taken in the right way. I don't want to stop being free. And I won't."

15. (from daghdha) Do you consider sexuality to be something that one is born with or something that can evolve over time depending on how willing the individual is to explore his or her identity as a sexual being?
heh, future post, thoughts on that are still being developed in my head. Daunting topic, since I have a pretty unusual way of seeing that.

16. (from legein) What's your bedtime routine?
take out contacts, wash face, brush teeth, take off socks and shoes (since I'm pretty much always naked at home), and climb in bed!

17. (from legein) If you could eliminate two physical objects from existence, what would they be?
a certain book which I will not name because I do not care to talk about it (please respect that), and projectile weapons. I don't say all weapons because there are sometimes reasons for physically harming someone, but I think if you are going to do that, you need to look your victim in the eye, get their blood on you, be stained with their fear, feel the harm you have done, know the reality of it. I think the worst thing projectile weapons have done is made death and violence easy, impersonal, irresponsible.

Wow, I love this answer. I'd never thought about it that way before, but now that you've put it into words, I have to say that I completely agree with you.

I've never heard anyone cite this reason for disliking projectile weapons, and it is the one and only reason I've heard thus far that makes sense.

well that makes me feel super special and clever! hee hee :D

I really am impressed with the projectile weapons answer as well. I also totally agree that the "why" is so much more important than the "what." It always amazes me that people lose sight of the most important lessons in life because they are battling over the "what."

thanks!

and I knooooooowww, it's crazy when you think about it, you know? and if we'd all just pay attention to kids and their questions (everyone knows they ask 'why' constantly) we'd know how to live!

aww, what a beautiful compliment, thank you so much! ♥
Heee!

That has got to be the coolest super power answer I have ever seen! I had recently asked people about their power of choice on my facebook, and most people chose teleportation. Invisibility, flying, mind reading, and healing are often answers...but your is so unique, and so incredibly cool! That rocks! :)

awesome! thanks so much!

don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to fly, but I think this I would love just as much AND get more constructive use from. ;-)

For the record I find these posts and facinating insite into who you are. You are an amazing person. I am so glad that I ran across you (smile)

On another note...I missed the nekkid pictures??? (Grin, Duck, and Run) :P

Your whole philosophy on loving who (and what) you are is such an inspiration. You really are a hero. Spreading that message is not only bold, but something extremely important in the times we live in. Like the cliche says, a picture is worth a thousand words. Major kudos. Stay beautiful.

And I love the way you think.

or instance, when Paul in the NT says for women to cover their heads in church, that was never intended to be a permanent thing -- it was a concession to the times. \


Actually if you read the whole thing it says that HAIR is given to women as a covering.
garrulous
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
that's in a separate part of the Bible -- Paul was referring to women covering their HAIR. "If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off."
darkpool ══╣╠══

Judge among yourselves. Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
1Cr 11:14
Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him?
1Cr 11:15
But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her[fn1] for a covering.
