It’s Written in Stone!

The way we use the phrase “It’s Written in Stone” (which I believe comes from the Ten Commandments story), to mean “It’s an absolute truth that cannot be challenged or changed”, is very strange.

On Being a Whore

When we “love” someone to get something in return, (which is usually an unconscious demand that she/he love Me in return), we will sooner or later be disappointed and this “love” will transform into something very different, something very negative.
