Stink Eyes On: Psychic Sylvia Browne , True Evil

by Accidental Bear

I first layed eyes on “PsychicSylvia Browne on the Montel William show many years. I am always intrigued by these  self proclaimed psychics. What else to call them since there is no logical test to give them to fin out their “true abilities”. So, I will settle on self- proclaimed. As I watched words come out her mouth on the Montel show my skin began to burn from the unbelievable BS she was spewing from her wrinkly old lips. The theme of show was missing children and Sylvia was brought in to meet families and tell them what she saw in her magical crystal ball that she keeps in her head. This is when I saw PURE EVIL. She out of her ass tells this mourning , crying family that their missing 9 yr old boy is dead and floating in the bottom of a well. At first I thought OMG, she’s going to lead them all to the body, CASE CLOSED. But no, thats all she “makes up” and has no other fictional information to tell them. If she’s going to make shit up, make upsomthing soothing or spiritualy helpful for these suffereing families of missing children. Say something like, ” Billy, is no longer with us here on earth, but at peace and not in any pain.. blah blah” But don’t tell them their son is dead in a well!!

She should be held accountable for the EXTRA trauma she brings to these faimilies in need of comforts and she should be tried. If it were up to me I say she should be humiliated in public on a daily basis for the rest of her life and 24 hrs a day have a speaker near her spewing all sorts of hurtful lies. Um ,thats all.

If I were FORCED to pick a Religion, It would be Buddhism

by Accidental Bear

I have never stepped foot in church except for one wedding and once on acid while in highschool did a photo shoot in a glorious church. I don’t believe in god, but Im not an atheist. Then what am I? I don’t want to wear the badge because it makes me part of “them” ; non-god believers.  Im just me, a non god believing guy that happens to be attracted to other men. Sometimes , when I’m asked if I’m gay , I pause and then reply, ” Well, yeah… I  guess I am gay.” Its confusing because the only thing that I am is me. I don’t actually think of being gay, I was born with that chip in my brain.

Searching for more out of life , trying to find more meaning to life than what my father beat into me, ” You’re born, you live ,then you get buried.” I knew there was more to my so-called life than that. In the later 90’s, one after the other I had buddhists march into my life. I read about 6 million books, bought the cute little wooden beads, practiced mediation, bought a buddha statue, took up yoga.. yadda yadda ( do people still say that?) I hit a point of over saturation and everything that made sense of life through buddhism started to drive me crazy. The whole, everything is nothing , and nothing is everything. And the one point about  NO attachment, just didn’t make sense. I was trying to connect to the world, but had to stay detached?

The most dissapointing observation was that most of my gay friends who claimed to be buddhist were all for show. They had cute little atlers in their houses and posters of Indian gods on the walls. One friend even passed out cards that said ,” Practice Compassion. ” But I knew this guy well and saw what a hypocrite he was. He played the buddha card only when it improved his status amongst certain friends or to blow up  his ego. You are told in buddhism to let go of your ego. But I have to say, every buddhist I have ever known has had the biggest ego about having no ego. Go figure. If I were to have to pick any organized religion it would be buddhism. But for now I’ll just go on being me. Maybe my father wasn’t so wrong after all. You’re born, you live you get buried, period.

A Quick “How to be Buddhist“. Do you have what it takes?

Here are the first Five Precepts. If you get stumped with these, I suggest NOT being a buddhist or pretending to be either.

  1. To avoid killing sentient beings
  2. To avoid stealing
  3. To avoid sexual misconduct
  4. To avoid lying
  5. To avoid taking intoxicants

What about SEX? What does buddhism say about that?

Most religions have rigid, elaborate rules about sexual conduct. Buddhists have the Third Precept — in PaliKamesu micchacara veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami — which is most commonly translated “Do not indulge in sexual misconduct” or “Do not misuse sex.” However, for laypeople, the early scriptures are hazy about what constitutes “sexual misconduct.” < more >
