Spirituality Is the Soul of Being a Hero

Why does a community hero training center need to address spirituality and inspiration?

The original ancient Grecian idea of a hero didn’t include spirituality. It included anybody who did something amazing, beyond the ability of ordinary people. Even  terrible acts of evil could make someone a hero. Today, heroes are people who are examples of doing good. This also means that heroes can be anybody, not just the super strong, brave, or smart.

We need to learn what goodness is, to find a strong reason to do good things for others. As neighbors living together in peace, there are many things that we all believe are good. As humans, of course we have differences, too. A community center for training heroes needs the help of all the spiritual and rational sources of belief in what’s good, to focus on what we all believe, and examine our differences with civility.

I was born in 1960, raised in a family of fundamentalist Christians (I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior as a child). A bookworm, dreamer, and nerd, I loved my faith and also science, fantasy, imagination, creativity -- I could never settle on who I was and what I wanted to do, and never seemed to fit in anywhere. The Musement Park is meant to be as close as possible to a theme park on the planet I seemed to come from.

Try: an Experimental Experiment

This is an experiment. This is only an experiment. This will be the only experiment on this site. This site will have only one experiment on it by me. I shall do only one experiment on this site and this is that one experiment. Only one experiment is needed for me to do on this site. On this site I will do an experiment but only this one, and only for one time. This is the time that I will do only one experiment on this site. An experiment on this site done by me will be done only once because that is all that is needed. Therefore, I shall conclude this one and only experiment on this site because it is finished now and only one experiment is needed for me to do on this site. So concludes the only experiment done by me on this site.

[ Administrator/Editor’s note on this Experiment ]

One of the reasons I’d like to have a Haven for Dreamers or Dreamer’s Workshop is because there are so many things I’d like to try that I could never do them all myself, so I would be happy to just see them getting done by someone else.  That means guiding them and sharing ideas. I’d love to mentor or collaborate with others in a number of subjects, such as basic BASIC computer programming, and I have some ideas about AI and robotics to try out, etc. Here, one of my sisters is taking the first step in trying something new — blogging! Wait till you see what she comes up with when she’s done practicing.  Maybe you could be next.

There’s so much more I’d like to try with you — how about learning and practicing a new language? I would also love to be mentored by people who know more about things than I do.  I have materials for learning French, Spanish and German (mostly the first two). Also art, optics, science, poetry and prose, as well as the aforementioned computer science and robotics. Anybody who lives in the area would be welcome to drop in and visit or stop by to borrow something. Got to start somewhere…

Dreams: Poems for Dreamers

Poems for Dreamers

Until (if ever) there is a real Haven for Dreamers, I hope this blog will serve as a virtual haven for dreamers, and for those who do find their way here, I offer these poems of camaraderie…

Dreams

Dreams are such diaphanous things:
they fly on fast electrical wings
in the fluid flux of our minds.
Dreams are such an ephemeral kind;
they blossom, grow, and then unwind,
and sublimate into the air.
Dreams are made of various stuff:
with feathers, scales, or golden hair,
and moonbeams, cobwebs, and fluff.
Dreams are like scintillant rings,
like thunderflash or wild wind noise,
or like a star that gently sings.
But dreams are cold and empty toys
when no one else will share their joys.
Help me make my dreams come true,
and I’ll share them all,
each one,
with you.

the Haven for Dreamers,

possibly the first physical step toward The Musement Park.
There may not be much you can do with these things, but then again maybe finding things to do with them will be part of the fun and challenge. At any rate, I think they will spark some creativity and imagination.
