Types of Love

Although romantic love is the most common written about form of love. It’s often not the deepest. Agape and Philia love often goes deeper. Romantic love must have agape and Philia love to turn into a lasting love, Pragma love.

Types of Love

  1. Eros, or sexual passion. The first kind of love was eros, named after the Greek god of fertility, and it represented the idea of sexual passion and desire. We call it romantic love.
  2. Philia, or deep friendship.
  3. Ludus, or playful love.
  4. Agape, or love for everyone. Commonly called brotherly or sisterly love.
  5. Pragma, or longstanding love.
  6. Philautia, or love of the self.

 

 

      Philautia, or love of the self is very important. One must love themselves before they can extend it to anyone else.

How is love shown?

Love is shown in your every day  actions toward someone and everyone. Treat everyone the same. Make no distinguish in how you treat one person from another. That’s not love. That’s favoritism. Treat all with much kindness and respect. Treat others as you wish to be treated. Don’t do anything to anyone you don’t want done to you and the goodwill will circle back around to you. It won’t be the same person or people whom you extended kindness to in their hour of need but someone who isn’t blind will see the good in you and expend a helping hand when needed. It take far more strength and discipline to be kind than mean. It take far more energy to love than to hate. Meanness and hatred comes naturally to most of us but as we grow older and more callous by the world. Kindness and love take a sincere effort.

The Christmas Song: Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

The Christmas Song

by Nat King Cole

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by the choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny little tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother’s child is going to spy
To see if reindeer’s really know how to fly

And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you, Merry Christmas to you

The original Battle Hymn of the Republic

Many may not know this but the Battle Hymn of the Republic we sing isn’t how Julia Ward wrote it. Those who know it exactly how she wrote it was fortunate enough to be taught by someone who got one of the flyers she printed up herself after seeing how her song was altered.

 Many modern recordings of the Battle Hymn of the Republic use the lyric “As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free” as opposed to the lyric originally written by Julia Ward Howe: “let us die to make men free.”

Ward’s original manuscript differed slightly from the published version. Most significantly, it included a final verse. Many felt it was too harsh so it was omitted from the press. She was an abolitionist so what were people expecting her to write?

Anyway she pitched a hissy fit and reprinted it how she actual wrote it and doled the flyers out to Union soldiers That’s how we know today how the song actually goes.

Another thing, some magazines  refused to reprint it because she was printing it in her maiden name. Julia Ward not Julia Ward Howe.  Older musical books you find it listed as Julia Ward not Julia Ward Howe. From a modern perspective..what difference does that makes??

Now, how do I know how she originally she wrote it? My great great-great grandfather was in the Civil War and got one of these prints. It’s muddied, dirty, bloodied, yellowed and brittle with age but the family still has it. It’s not the published print included in this post. 

 

————————————————–

“Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!”
His truth is marching on.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, Glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps,
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I have read His righteous sentence in the dim and flaring lamps:
His day is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:
“As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal”;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth His trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me.
For He died to make men holy, let us die to make them free,
While God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
While God is marching on.

Julia Ward ‘s original manuscript differed from the published version. Most significantly, it included a final verse that was omitted.

He is coming like the Glory of the morning on the wave,
He is Wisdom to the mighty, He is Honor to the brave,
The world is His footstool, and the souls of wrong men His slave,
Our God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on!

I personally don’t see the big deal about the last verse. It’s the first verse that’s scary if you asked me. Have they ever seen a winepress and what it does?

History Revisionism

Historical revisionism

Historical revisionism

 

In historiography, the term historical revisionism identifies the re-interpretation of the historical record. It usually means challenging the orthodox views held by professional scholars about a historical event, or introducing new evidence, or of restating the motivations and decisions of the participant people. The revision of the historical record reflects the new discoveries of fact, evidence, and interpretation, which produce a revised history. In dramatic cases, revisionism involves a reversal of older moral judgments about heroes and villains.

At a basic level, historical revisionism is a common and not especially controversial process of developing and refining the writing of history. Much more controversial is the reversal of moral findings, which the heroes, good guys, or positive forces are depicted as villains, bad guys, or negative forces. This revisionism is quickly challenged by the supporters of the old view, often in heated terms. It becomes historical negationism, a form of historical revisionism that presents a re-interpretation of the moral meaning of the historical record. The term “revisionism” is used pejoratively by people who charge that revisionists are distorting the true historical record.
——————————————–
Now, adding my findings. I find that revisionists often rewrite things to suit a modern day mind frame or a certain group of people or input their personal opinion in how they wish things to go. Totally eliminating the ethnic of that day and time. May they be good, bad or downright evil. Which in many cases they are. It’s there. You can’t change the past.

Changing things to suit your view that’s not history. That’s fictional writing. History is the recording of actual events as they actually occurred to the best of your ability not how you ‘feel’ the event should have gone. Again, that’s not history. That’s philosophy. Historians are indifferent to the stories they records.

A real historian deal with facts not their own opinion or emotions. However the subject lived their life that’s exactly how a true historian records it.

Phenomenal Authors. Self Published Authors you would have never guessed they put out their own work.

Here is a list of a few self-published authors you would never guessed they were self published. There are many, many more. The list is too long to submit all of them.  I highlighted a few whose work became phenomenal and some even changed the course of history. Such as Martin Luther’s 95 Thesis. Dante didn’t self publish The Divine Comedy but his friend did.

Self Publisher Authors You would have never guessed they put out their own work.
