New Beginnings (All Along the Way)

July 29, 2018

In The Light

So clear at the shore –
So you say.
Where have you been?
What have you carried –
All along the way?
In a past,
In a present,
How many tears were cried?
What was carried by another,
And why?
Who always watched,
While you wondered –
Where, and of what, you are?
And did you have to go –
So far?
Yes, it was a special journey,
With Answers – all along the way,
Where many new beginnings
Would always await.
So here,
You wish,
You seek,
You pray.
In a presence,
In acceptance –
You bow
And say:
Whatever You want from me –
I shall give (in any way).
Whatever You wish – I will offer,
In this, or any day.
Though I may falter, as other times – I swayed,
You have always delivered:
In the Light, your Wonder, your Keys,
Have always Saved.
For there is Heaven,
And to Thee I shall forever pray.
And every night,
And every morning,
I will seek another
Oh Holy Day.

Re: Humans (and the Beauty of Evolved Apes)

July 5, 2018

A while back some ambitious apes figured out how to stand up straight and use abstract thought, and now deep fried Twinkies are a thing.  It’s been a hell of a ride.  If you asked a human what the most amazing thing about humans is, they’d probably tell you something very humany, like “Our ability to think” or “Our capacity for self-awareness” or “Our resemblance to the White-Bearded Paternal Deity Who created us in His own image.”

Have you ever considered that God (the One you constantly disparage) most likely appears to us in fashions of which, individually or as associated groups, we would relate – such as to Buddhists in a Buddha form, to Native Americans in their ancestral Indian form, and, correspondingly, also to Christians in a form constructed along lines of their expectations?  Doubtful, because you don’t Believe.  Have you ever sought to see that Spirit must exist for life itself to exist?
Doubtful, because you don’t even care to try and understand (this first level reality).

“What is the most amazing thing about humans”?
One answer: their Spirits live forever.

Without a living God, there would be no Spirit.  And, since God is Spirit (shared), that is “beautiful” – to a level we can barely touch, in comprehension.  This wondering, which can lead us to an acceptance of the Fact, is as natural as our need for water.  If you think everything in existence (including aliens/life on other planets) just came together through an immeasurable happenstance of odds, without Spirit, your ongoing writing in these areas would equal a fomenting of attempting to explain our entire being (and infinite universe) as soulless science – void of any higher meaning, where we just live to die without any more purposes than weeds.  Of course, you can continue your Atheistic “[ideological]” promotions while locking out due diligence; it’s your blog.  But, no matter how much you do this, it will never mean you are Right:  For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Acts 17:28

Moreover, the continuance will only further and further reveal your lack of Vision: without those first steps toward a broader seeking of possibilities, you will never begin (or be able) to understand, thus progress, to Belief.  Until the latter and former is turned around, you will not fully “fall down before . . . another in breathless awe and wonder at their beauty.”  How could you, when they are only “[ambitiously evolved] apes”?
