In Your Eyes


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.

Re: “37 Percent of People Completely Lost”

37 Percent of People Completely Lost

As a liberal (progressive) of/with higher education, my disgust while reading this (blind, but supposedly enlightened) diatribe only grew.  From Jesus Christ pictured on a dinosaur to “religion as parable/myth” to “Jesus literally flew up out of a cave and into the sky” to “Here is the body of Jesus,” Mark Morford succeeded in revealing himself to be just as hypocritical, ignorant, abusive, and lost as most of those he so gleefully sought to ridicule in a public forum.

Numerous “university professors and scientists [who] identify as Democrat/progressive” also believe in Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and God.  To them, “reading” the Bible is taken as a “complex” journey – where the literal, figurative, allegorical, and poetic language within collected stories of those obviously inspired and guided beyond earthly possibilities enhances their “critical” and “analytical” “thinking,” while also lifting spiritually.

Along these lines, how many people are mocked throughout history?  From the most common to the most prominent, to him it would seem that followers of Moses were laughingstock material, just as those who were willing to be crucified (or burned to death, etc.) in the name of Jesus.  For believing, was Thomas Jefferson another idiot for joke routines?  What about Lincoln?  Was Martin Luther King a fool to be mocked for rising to such levels based on cartooned centers?  For any that do believe (simply or complexly), to him the answer is clearly “yes” – regardless of “infallible proofs” (Acts 1:3) or any other truths.

Note: Not all Christians are behind the times in intellectual development (i.e., thinking the earth was created 6,000 years ago: 2 Peter 3:8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.).

Note: Not all Christians attack atheists with vitriol and half-wit monikers/denunciations.

And still, a prayer: may Mark have an experience along different lines:
‘New Atheists’ and Evolution

And then, when he has been “[led] straight to” “a more open-minded” view than he ever imagined, may he experience all the necessary paths (from a bottomless void) of seeking forgiveness and true enlightenment that long lines of soulless derision require.

Obviously, some “Liberals [do actually] hate God [or will go to any extremes to deny His existence].”  “Was it a terribly elitist and unkind thing to say?  Sort of.”
