The Realm of 'Having' vs. 'Being'

To have.

Or, to be.

That is the question.

'Tis nobler to be.


Edward Popielarz taught about the beatitudes of Matthew's Gospel, Chapter 5: vs. 1-12.

They are attitudes of being.

They are.


Money, power and sex, according to David Stewart are stems of problems when used addictively, extremely.

They become attachment disorders as John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila, Spain taught long before the dawn of psychology as we know it with Sigmund Freud, for example.

When I live in the world of being there is joy, hope, love, peace, humility, kindness, truth, compassion, faith, prudence, fortitude, justice, temperance, and serenity of the Spirit of God.

These are positive aspects of being.

Negative aspects are fear, anger, resentment, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, self-pity, guilt, lies, false pride, ego and superiority.

Much of one's life can be lived in the realm of 'having,' and the negative as opposed to being and the positive.

The famous Father Edward Popielarz' class in acceptance meets the third Wednesday of each month from 5:30-7 PM on Big Jack's Bar-B-Q Grille in Roseville, MI., teaches these lessons of life. David Johnstone leads the sessions.

And, on the first Monday of each month at the same time and place, a Morphing/Mending sessions meets for all.  Sandra Bell leads that session.  All are welcome also!
