” Burlar a si mesma para justificar maus-tratos, abrir mão de quem você é para verbalizar amor e encobrir defeitos do parceiro/parceira por não querer confrontar suas falhas, é antes de qualquer coisa “negligenciar” seus valores em prol de quem não valoriza, nem faz jus a direito algum em relação a você.

Se amar é gratuito. E aprender confrontar a quem precisa de um ” sacolejo” é também assegurar a sua saúde emocional.

Eine dreifache Wahrheit …A threefold truth

Stella, oh, Stella

Bringe den wütenden Mann mit Liebe zum Schweigen. Bringe den bösen Mann mit Freundlichkeit zum Schweigen. Bringe den Geizhals mit Großzügigkeit zum Schweigen. Bringe den Lügner mit der Wahrheit zum Schweigen.

Lehrt alle diese dreifache Wahrheit: Ein großzügiges Herz, eine freundliche Sprache und ein Leben des Dienens und Mitgefühls sind die Dinge, die die Menschheit erneuern.
Gautama Buddha


… Silence the angry man with love. Silence the ill-natured man with kindness. Silence the miser with generosity. Silence the liar with truth.

Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
Gautama Buddha


Lasst uns mit uns selber anfangen, das einzige Stück der Welt, dass wir wirklich verändern können.

… Let us start with ourselves, the only part of this world, which…

Weeks, Forged Family, Aladdin, and Elisha?

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

This is an update, for tonight’s holiday, my favorite, of studying overnight, with a link to the class I taught on it some years ago. I forgot to mention that we read the Megillah of Ruth on this holiday, as well, with the famous story of Ruth and Naomi becoming family, used by the Rabbis for the conversion process, and the idea of Na’aseh ve Nishmah by all of those who would ever accept the task of wrestling with the divine, and of Tikkun Olam, before the mountain, this day.

As we come up to the holiday of שָׁבוּעוֹת Shavuot, shavuot_papercut_2 for the seven weeks, or 50 days counted down between Passover and Shavuot, we naturally think of the pleasures of staying up all night long to study languages, er, em, that is, to study Torah, in our Biblical languages of Hebrew and sometimes also Aramaic, with the occasional reference…

She was jailed for losing a pregnancy. Her nightmare could become more common | US justice system | The Guardian

Becker’s attorneys argued there was no evidence that substance use caused the stillbirth and California law did not allow for this type of prosecution in the first place. Still, she spent 16 months in jail awaiting trial before a judge dismissed the charges.

Becker’s nightmare offers a preview of the kinds of criminal cases that could become commonplace in the US if the supreme court, as expected after the leak of a draft opinion last month, officially overturns Roe v Wade. In the states that outlaw abortion, advocates warn, pregnancy losses more broadly will be treated as potential crimes, including in cases of wanted pregnancies. Even with Roe in effect, women have repeatedly faced arrest and charges for their pregnancy outcomes.

“These prosecutions will escalate at an extremely rapid clip if Roe is reversed,” said Emma Roth, staff attorney with the National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW), a non-profit group that supported Becker in her legal battle. “A lot of people don’t realize that pregnant people are already facing criminalization all across the country, including in blue states like California. All it takes is a rogue district attorney.”

Vaidade, que todo me há vencido;

Vencido quero ver-me, e arrependimento,

Arrependido a tanta enormidade…”

They Eat Their Own …

Filosofa's Word

If you ever wonder why there are few, if any, good people in the GOP, it’s because it is suicide to be a good person in today’s GOP, aka Republican Party.  Yes, that’s right, folks … you either play by their rules, or you’re out of the game.  The latest example is U.S. Representative Chris Jacobs of New York who had the audacity to say, after speaking about the most recent mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, “I can’t in good conscience sit back and say I didn’t try to do something.”  Them’s fightin’ words in the Republican ranks these days!

Within the week, he was told by GOP members in no uncertain terms that his opinions were not welcome, and was taken to task by Junior, aka the son of the evil former guy.  WHAT THE HELL does Junior even have to do with anything?  He’s…
