LISDG?

LISDG is just fun. It is not some deep philosophy. It is simply appreciation for life. A realization that life is good. Make your life what you want it to be. Its not about being preachy or grandiose. I hope this site finds you well and that you find some gratitude in your day. LIFE IS SO DAMN GOOD

Sam Harris Quote

No rational atheist (or “New Atheist”) holds religion accountable for every idiotic or unethical thing religious people do. We blame a religion only for what its adherents do as a direct result of its doctrines, such as opposing gay marriage or killing apostates. Atheism has no doctrines. It does not demand that a person do … [Read more…]

Pema Chodron

The only reason we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don’t feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes. ” … [Read more…]

The Hearts by Robert Pinsky

The legendary muscle that wants and grieves, The organ of attachment, the pump of thrills And troubles, clinging in stubborn colonies Like pulpy shore-life battened on a jetty. Slashed by the little deaths of sleep and pleasure, They swell in the nurturing spasms of the waves, Sucking to cling; and even in death itself— Baked, … [Read more…]
