I’m not ”fishing” for compliments or any specific feedback. Ed’s Art Net is just a form of artistic and spiritual expression. I hope that you enjoy my work. Period. I want you to feel good. End of story.
I have a knack for the obvious and I’m not afraid to share.
Interaction face to face is way different than writing to you on a website/blog. I feel less inhibited when writing than when I’m face to face talking with someone in person.
I think that one of the worse things we can do is project our religious beliefs onto others when we don’t know what that other person’s beliefs are. Religion should be a mutual “iron sharpening iron” realm between like-minded individuals. Common ground is something that develops over time between individuals and groups.
Every group is made up of some number of individuals.
Individuals group together when they find shared interests. A leader will emerge and develop from the group. Respect for each other is the key to unlocking friendly mutuality.
I don’t talk much about my religious belief face to face unless I’m asked about it. I know that folks all have unique thoughts about a lot of things and religion is among the most individualistic there is.
Respectfulness means that you listen more than you talk.
Relationships develop after a healthy exchange of ideas and behaviors.
In that regard, writing is extremely limited. The exchange a writer faces may be nonexistent. Writing can be like “talking to a wall”, if you’re left with zero feedback.
I write alone from ”Ed’s World” and my initial feedback comes from myself as I edit. I’m especially grateful for the help that I get from you and from my enlightening face to face discussions with my family and friends.
