what is god for you?
mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
jr. the word god is a little bit controversial for me because it's a label that we created to a feeling or energy that is much much older than us. so it's hard for me to put our own, almost juvenile, label on something that predates us.
mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
jr. yes i do.
mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
jr. i believe everything happens for a reason, but i don't think it's somebody deciding those reasons. i think it's ever-changing, and we have a big say in it.
mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
jr. love means 110% unconditional compassion.
mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
jr. yes, i do.
mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
jr. speaking from a divorcee, it would have to be 100% acceptance. and compassion for everyone's changes. we're all changing and evolving, it's the ability to adapt with that person and being able to accept the changes instead of being rigid.
mig. what have you learned about life so far?
jr. i've learned that i don't know anything.
mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
jr. i would describe humanity today as promising. i think you can sit around all day and nitpick. my biggest thing is that you've got people in the world who have and you've got people that have not. so much time and energy is wasted at knocking down the people who have, my belief is 'let's get the people who have not and bring them up'. let's try not to knock people down for being successful at what they do. but let's focus on the people that aren't playing in a level playing field, and bring them up.
