Reading[s]: “Certain Views”

August 31, 2013

In relation: EdgarCayce reading 244-2, October 18, 1926 ~^~

“Man” (humans) did live much longer, previously (BC), of course.  For [extremely] serious (spiritual/virtuous/cumulative) reasons, many tides, rhythms, and (formerly) set seasons were changed – that “what needed to happen” would be fulfilled.

And then, through following centuries (previous, and AD), there were declines – before new increments, allowed/opened by progress began taking place.

Now, (after having witnessed exponential risings over two hundred years) in this place (and span of time), there are returning possibilities – for refreshing awakenings.

Matters (simply) of science and medicine (earthly/etc.) (still) do not answer, fully.

Now (as in far-distant pasts), minds and spirits may embrace (once again) hidden, yet there to be found, areas of growth – where, though (in this realm) we are not presently immortal, our ages may reflect/mirror what, for thousands of years, seemed impossible

[Coda] Re: “Right About Atheists”: Your teaching along these lines (chaplains, atheists, and so much more) was wonderful to read (experience).  How often are possibilities for advancement (growth) shunned – in/from the face of unwavering rigidity?  “And for those of us who choose to believe, the energy was the Presence of God.”  A percentage of atheists refuse to even consider this core question: is there the slightest chance of being wrong?  Moreover, among the most (seemingly) unlikely (to them), could another consideration have a “mere” moment? : is there a great chance?  In either extreme, or, through a centered balance, “a flight from the freedom that is waiting” does not have to be continuous (to shocking realization – once in the afterlife).  From earthly groundings, where their present wings are illusionary (though that is unbeknownst), an opportunity still exists for winged journeys – beyond the figurative.

In further relation, Robert Wright’s “Why ‘New Atheists’ are Right-Wing on Foreign Policy” (from 2009) came to mind.  Confronting a particular stance (“People are survival machines built by natural selection”), there was a conclusion: “Most important, there is considerable doubt that the experience, by way of an atheist (then or now), would leave him/her denying God’s (‘Higher Power’) Existence.”

The latter and former is not intended to extol in any negative senses.  Instead, this comment/reflective summary, overall, is meant to represent a level in which your collective effort inspired.

“So Let Your Bullets Fly Like Rain”

Evil man make me kill you
Evil man make you kill me
Evil man make me kill you
Even though we’re only families apart

Well I pick up my axe and fight like a farmer
You know what I mean?
Hey, and your bullets keep knocking me down
Hey, I pick up my axe and fight like a farmer now
Yeah, but you still blast me down, to the ground

Stone Free

Everyday of the week, I’m in a different city
If I stay too long, the people try to pull me down,
you know what I mean?
They talk about me like a dog, talkin’ about the clothes I wear

We were blessed as though in heaven
We were messengers of joy
There were angels all around us
There was none who dared destroy

Victims of the fury
Shadows in the dark
Victims of the fury
Arrows found their mark

Then the world collapsed around us
And the tables overturned
We were lambs before the slaughter
We were driven out and burned.

Dreams:With this faith, we will be able to hew
out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.”

“Make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.”

“To work and fight until justice runs down like water,
and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

“I’m not fearing any man.”

Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
While they’re standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what’s theirs

Don’t you know
You better run, run, run
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run

Cause finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution
Yes, finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution
Talkin’ bout a revolution

Don’t you know
Talkin’ about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
And finally the tables are starting to turn
Yes, finally the tables are starting to turn

Acts 2:25-28

25 David said about him:

“‘I saw the Lord always before me.
    Because he is at my right hand,
    I will not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will live in hope,
27 because you will not abandon me to the grave,
    nor will you not let your Holy One see me decay.
28 You have made known to me the paths of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence.’

All Sides (One Goal)

August 4, 2013

All Sides (One Goal)

Look at them,
And how they fall.
There must be a past tied to the present –
Predetermined through Divination,
For those so oppressed,
For those beyond our call.
Why else would they fail,
And never breach our stature?
One side must have turned.
One tide must have churned –
Maybe written a way, a destiny,
In this, their Books of Life?
Though, to an effect
It was surely written:
“[They shall be] afflicted.”
And still, the message remains conflicted.
Some certainly blind simply choose –
When, what, where to see.
What about other passages –
Written complexly?
For here, there are two sides, opposing –
With One goal (infinitely):
For here, in each and every direction,
Where all awakenings could surely breathe –
Within us:
Two sides,
And beyond –
Another two;
From four corners
To a Center – (Truth).
Four poles:
Above us,
Below us,
To that which is Right,
And (at times), where it is left.
Yet always, there is a Center,
A Vine holding us together –
An offering branch,
As a heart (withstanding)
In every season of weather.
Within us,
All sides can be reached.
And without,
All tides may arrive (at times),
As possibilities to seek.
Above,
Below,
Within,
Without,
One goal –
Without a doubt.
Four triangles,
The building blocks –
A crystal,
A Trinity –
The foundation rocks;
A past story, chapters,
A future,
The Center knocks.
Who are we to judge
The poor and oppressed –
Those downtrodden,
Seemingly failed in success?
Which sides must have yearned?
Which tides must have burned
In these distinctive paths –
Whose Books appear to mirror a certain wrath?
Was it a choice, or choices –
From the dark, or of the Light?
Was it free will –
From a Spark, or of the night?
Was it from a sentence,
Or of a guided plight?
In all directions –
Where many stories may be spurned,
What questions?
Which questions?
And what more could be learned?
Who are we to judge –
Beyond ourselves,
While watching
In every season of weather?
Overall,
One circle, One Vine
(Offering a branch from a heart to a hand)
Is holding us together.
Alpha,
Omega,
The falls
In between –
The little ones,
The calls,
Our witnessing.
These are personal paths,
Individual,
Yet collective.
Should we sentence,
Beyond ourselves?
And where are we connected?
Across,
Between,
Side to side,
Listening.
An eventide,
A Light – all-encompassing.
Other questions:
Are we truly growing?
Overall,
What is the Reason  –
And where are we going?
Wherever we may end up,
Whatever our current stake (in Life),
Let us focus – again.
If not,
How many chapters upon others
Are we to rule, to begin?
The rich –
So often lost;
Mansions on hills,
Comfort, but at what cost?
The poor –
So often in drought;
Digging modern Niles,
Yet still, so many never doubt.
Some certainly blind simply choose –
When, what, where to see.
And yes, they are watching;
Is it eventide?
Is it all-encompassing?
Is it collective –
Overall?
Do the little ones have questions,
Voices,
Answers,
To our calls?
Looking up (oftentimes),
The poor may bleed;
From their eyes the rich are set:
“Yea, they have no needs.
They are like kings, or queens –
And to them, we are weeds.”
Looking down (oftentimes),
The rich may seed;
From their eyes the poor are met:
“Yea, they have no reeds.
They are like needles –
And to them, we are freed.”
“Judge not, that ye be not judged” –
Prophets, the Bible,
The Son says.
Open up,
Let the rivers flow;
Accept the Vine
(As a branch),
And welcome all that follows.
Alpha,
Omega,
The falls
In between –
The little ones,
The calls,
Our witnessing.
Above,
Below,
Within,
Without,
One goal –
Without a doubt.
In Heaven:
The Father,
The Word,
The Holy Ghost –
(One).
In Earth:
The Spirit,
The Water,
The Blood,
(One).
Looking up.
Looking down.
A cross in between.
A Book of Lives.
Witnessing.
Above us,
Below us,
To that which is Right –
Judge not,
Trudge not,
And there is Sight.
Let us sing:
The Life.
The Breath.
To all that was,
To all that is left –
You are the Miracle,
All that is Right,
All that is to be,
All that is Light.
You are everything –
A beginning, an end.
To Thee,
Prayers we send.
Of Thee,
On knees we bend.
You are everything;
You are the One;
My Father,
Our Father,
And The Son.
You are the Foundation –
And in time,
Twice begun.
