How Woo Woo are You?

woo-woo  adjective  1. (derogatory, slang) based on or involving irrational superstition

Have you Ever Wondered how “Woo Woo” are you?

I mean, let’s be honest here – at least with yourself. Do you really believe all that stuff you “believe”?

If you were in a place where no one could hear you but yourself and it was one of those rare days after a good night’s sleep when you had all of your wits about you … could you say – without questioning the veracity of your own words or thoughts (or thoughts and words shared with you by others)… or – at the very least cracking a smile – that your beliefs are all reasonable and rational? Remember, no one can hear you. I’m just asking you to be true to yourself. Do any of those beliefs you grew up with or found along life’s path seem at all irrational? At all unreasonable? Even a wee bit illogical?

I can admit… I sure was taught a lot of stuff that would be generally considered “superstitious” were it not protected by the almighty label of a major religion! Now that doesn’t mean many beliefs are not real in my life… just not particularly rational, reasonable or logical.

irrational  adjective  1. without the faculty of reason; deprived of reason.

superstition  noun 1. a belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge, in or of the ominous significance of a particular thing, circumstance, occurrence, proceeding, or the like.

Hmmm…  I can’t help but wonder if the double negative of the definition itself (“irrational superstition” – seeming to mean an unreasonable belief that is deprived of reason) is a coded way of saying that “woo woo” really means a reasonably rational, logical belief!

So , now that you are liberated from the prison of irrational “definitions”, consider again – with pride and delight and a good dose of spiritual humor: “how woo woo are you?”

Have a woo-woo-wonderful day!
