|the Dao of Atheism :||: the Shaman Atheist 17/81|
A master's existence
is rarely known.
A good person's presence
is widely known
and praised and imitated.
A person who collects power
scares others and makes them fearful, small and hateful.
Without total trust
There are many communities of theists ...|
Hindus, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Native peoples. and a few communities of atheists ...
Daoists, Buddhists, Humanists
People live differently --
some with greater communal needs than others,
some with more individualistic desires than others.
There is no higher value in community or individualism
-- both always exist.
Does the negation of one and the affirmation of the other draw atheists and theists together?
Affirming one thing always invites the negation of the other.
