 Brief history of yoga

Yoga began as a Hindu practice, around 10,000 years ago. I found a brief article that concisely explains the history of yoga:

Separating the stretches and exercises from the religious aspect

Yes, this is possible.

As a Christian, I have been taught by various people, for years, that Christianity and Yoga are incompatible. While I understand that thinking, a Christian should not get involved with the spiritual side of Yoga, only the exercises, and these are not incompatible with Christianity, any more than any other type of exercise.

In my opinion, and my husband's opinion, the right response from people of faith should not be to get angry at Kathy, nor to applaud her, but to pray for her.

I have heard arguments from both sides of this fence; I would like to hear from Blognobbers readers, what do you think? Should marijuana be legal? Have you ever smoked pot, or have a family member who does? Tell your story!

And one more question, do you believe pot is a gateway drug, and why?

 "Relationships need boundaries in order to be healthy" A dear sister named Jean said to me. My first thought was to reject this, that couldn't be true. Relationships get strong by getting to know the other person, and then finding common ground. But how can you get close to another person if you put up walls? "Not walls," she said. "Gates." So you can choose what you let in, and out, and when. Ok. Well, that makes sense.

Image result for spousal abuse against husband

 

This is a real thing; even more carefully concealed than spousal abuse against women. There is a greater stigma attached to it. It is easy for someone who is not in the situation, to say "What is wrong with you? Just leave!"

It may not be that simple. If there are children involved, the male spouse may fear not being able to see his children, and with good reason. Spousal abuse against men is hard to believe, and hard to prove in court. Before I experienced an abusive marriage, I was one of those people who would say, "Just leave!" It is not always that simple.

I have noticed these stories emerging on Fox News--I'm not sure if this is an increase in campus rape and sexual assault, or just an increase in these cases being reported:

This is an article about an event that occurred at a Catholic school, of all things. That is a bit surprising--or is it?

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/12/02/sex-assault-report-casts-shadow-on-bay-area-high-school.html

Is this an example of going to far in the other direction? While some campuses don't take these accusations seriously, are there others who act on accusations with too little proof? I'd like people to weigh in.

Image result for angry man

 Motivation

§         Rage towards one person/punish women expressing his rage

§         Often misdirected impulses of hatred toward random victim

§         Sometimes in name of politics or religion, but in general it’s a crusade to hurt women who have hurt him

§         Believes self-importance is most important

Continuing this series about rape prevention--I previously wrote about power reassurance rapists, their MO, and methods of avoidance, and escape. I'm writing about these types in order of danger, from the least violent, the power reassurance type, to the most dangerous--Anger Excitation-Sadist. In this post, I'm going to describe the power assertive type, more dangerous than the power reassurance type of my last post.

Power Assertive (a.k.a. entitlement, exploitative, can be a “date rapist”)

Methods of Avoidance

§         Will tend to terminate the rape if victim resists

§         Most likely of all rapists to be dissuaded if scream, cry, plead, or fight

§         Could be dealing with power assertive rapist starting off with softer approach – do not want to upset that rapist type

§         Start off with nonviolent tactics – crying, pleading, praying aloud – if he becomes verbally abusive, you do not have a power reassurance rapist

§         If you can attack his conscience, or his weak point, the better luck for avoiding the rape

§         Do not attempt to “talk him out of it” – he will interpret that as your enjoying it, like in a relationship – you must use more angry and shocking tactics

§         With this type of rapist, fight; although he will occasionally have a weapon, it is generally an empty threat and he will not want to deal with an overly resistant victim

History of the Tuskagee airmen

"The Tuskegee airmen were the first black servicemen to serve as military aviators in the U.S. armed forces, flying with distinction during World War II. Though subject to racial discrimination both at home and abroad, the 996 pilots and more than 15,000 ground personnel who served with the all-black units would be credited with some 15,500 combat sorties and earn over 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses for their achievements. The highly publicized successes of the Tuskegee Airmen helped pave the way for the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces under President Harry Truman in 1948."

I recently posted a few posts about Campus Rape Prevention, and identifying different types of rapists. I also shared some information about moving on after an assault. One of the things that I would like to say to my readers who have been victims, that it was not your fault. It is a flaw of your society that  we too often blame the victim. I also want to say that there may be a period of anxiety, feelings of fear, dread, and flash backs to the attack. But these will pass, in time. What happened to you was a very real, traumatic event, but you don't have to remain a victim. There is healing for you, in Christ, far beyond anything that a therapist can offer you.
