To Believe

January 19, 2017

Imagine visions, hearing, over years: there will be a renewed future.  Imagine resultant periods of unique success, of unbreakable hope and various inspirational/spiritual peaks.  Imagine, after more years, finding yourself immersed in total turmoil (and ongoing diabolicaattacks)
while
 reaching a point where virtually everything earthly was lost: realization of fruition had not come to pass.  Imagine (with the latter) not being able to see any path for it to ever be fulfilled (as now) – though at times (all along the way) occurrences were sent as a means to enhance remembrance of the original.  Thereupon, imagine another one, but without specifics – and soon crying out because it still seemed absolutely impossible.  Then, imagine a reply: To Believe – without knowing. . . .

Re: The Family of Jesus

July 7, 2015

The family that Jesus knows he belongs to and belongs to forever—and the family he wants everyone else to belong to—is the family of the lovers of God; it is this family that must spread all over the earth, and spread its warmth and charity and passionate concern for just conditions into every corner of human society if human life is to become divine.

With a keyed focus on the heart (and sharing) of God’s Love, imagine being deeply loved by your earthly father and how it felt or feels to return/share in that love.  Then, imagine (possibly as a new beginning)
a personal visit from the heavenly Father showing love for you ten times beyond – with a resulting embrace and envelopment that nothing on earth could take away.  Following, imagine Jesus Christ giving you an infallible message (Gift) (for all), in these days:

I would do it again, if necessary – because I Love you all so much.”

After being overwhelmed with meaning (and emotion), would you then seek (ceaselessly)? : “How much love as this could there be?” This kind of focus – on His family, and how much they want us to know we are welcomed within, if we would only open our arms (and accept their hands), may awaken, again, in such depth that matters here are overcome to such a spiritual extent – where nothing can erase it.

Imagination – as a Key?

Why is it so uniquely essential?  How could it unlock limits, where pathways to (and of) Truth might be experienced as realities?

Imagine Jesus Christ in the present realm/day (infallibly) talking
with you, while reflecting on and corresponding the past:

“I would do it again, if necessary because I Love you all so much.”

And Jesus said to them,  “I am the bread of life.
He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and

Once, there were thoughts of being filled – before finding.
One side made every attempt to keep the earthly forever blinding.

Many drinks were sought in such a place – before knowing.
Then, upon tried chapters, the Spirit poured – like a river flowing.

The Song of the Pearl 

When I was a little child,
and dwelling in my kingdom of my father’s house,
and in the riches and luxuries of my teachers,
I was living at ease.

[Then] from our home in the East,
after they had made preparations,
my parents sent me forth.

[…]

Then they made with me an agreement,
and they inscribed it in my heart so that it would not be forgotten:
“If [you would go] down into Egypt
and bring [back] the one pearl,
which is in the middle of the sea
surrounded by the hissing serpent,
then you will put on your glorious garment
and your toga which rests (is laid) over it.
And with your brother, our second in command,
you will be heir in our kingdom.”

Yes: The More We Live
The evidence of our confusion, life has left its mark;
The more we fear, the more we lie, the more we hide.

As we walk into tomorrow
(Turning away from the path we know)
Holding the future with our hands
(We carry the weight of the world we go)
It’s up to you and I
(We hold the key; we hold the answer)

All my thoughts of doubt and fear are leaving one by one,
The more we live, the more we learn, the more we know.

Yes: Shock to the System
So, in answer to the prayer, the one you want is there
The one you feel inside of you
So, in answer to the dream, this time you are so clear
It’s always got to be, it’s always got to be this way, forever

Shock to the future
Shock to the rights of mankind
And they won’t even go blind
When they can’t see what’s going on

A Sign of the Times: Biblical Values (Sold Out)

November 5, 2012

Yes, we are at a “crossroads.”

At this critical point in history, where corporate/moneyed elites have purposely led us to a brink and are taking every deceitful measure to take us further (as a means to reshape the world, pre-FDR, etc.), this (Ad Campaign) is, indeed, a definitive sign of the times.

Biblical Values or Elite Principles?

“Biblical Values”?

To see Billy Graham on the stage siding and colluding with Romney (thus all relating destructive ideology) in the name of Christianity – Jesus – God is to see weakened flocks (beaten down in relentless measures) sold into present markets via modern marketing pens –
as Jesus’ main focuses (New Testaments) are sullied to extremes.

“Biblical Principles”?

Matthew 21:12 
Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying
and selling there.  He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.

They have been there (here) since antiquity, those who purport to know the Spirit (and its callings) – while leading/swaying from the most advantageous pinnacles.  And, since then, a message of warning has exclaimed: “they are not to be followed, for all who are led by them will only be drawn into ever-barren deserts – as pawns to be used for digging their sand.”

Billy Graham: “I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles. . . .”

Romney: They “believe the Kingdom of God will arise from . . . a political figure who will also be their spiritual leader.  They believe there will be a one-world government ruled by this god-king.  He will be a prophet and high priest of the Mormon faith, ruling the world from America.”

Matthew 10:16 
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves.
Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

Those who refuse to listen, in (corrective) guidance, will never hear.  Those who are assured of their sight, in spite of what is alternatively shown, will remain blind.  And, many of the same will speak (preach) of God’s intentions, while never having served, heard, or met His Spirit – thus their words (and directions) should be (and will be) discarded.


Reflections: The Prodigal Son

September 28, 2012

Luke 15:11-32  And He said, “A man had two sons.
The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of the estate that falls to me.’  So he divided his wealth between them.

[Note: These reflections/expressions are not, of course, all-inclusive – for not even a book could cover/honor the full extent (and power) of His sharing (gift) – through only one short story.]

This is but one of many paramount examples (for us/to us) of models, morals, greater pictures, teaching, and of guidance (if accepted).  Moreover, it was another brief (yet phenomenal) moment in the earthly life of Jesus Christ.  How could a simple man have moved small and, eventually, broad masses by way of (among others) telling parables – where people were converted, (with questions regarding “mysteries,” but) without doubts, both during the actual (“noble”) hearing, as well as after (to the present day)?  Within proper focuses, wherein one is seeking, beyond the chains of a physical body/mind, that he or she may be truly open – the same is possible now.  Still, and as ongoing evidence of the most pristine natures, though those openings may even be closed, the possibilities of a converting discovery remain (and are often fulfilled, as they were then).  Watch.  Read.  Listen – (Imagine) while leaving the world behind.  Become the Prodigal Son (in Spirit).  Experience his journey, at that time – then return, where transference allows circumstantial culminations at this time.  Learn the lessons.  And when you come back, you may find yourself in another (present) place, another light, and at a new door.

A Father

What did/does this father represent?  In having built a legacy not only sufficient for himself, but also for passing on to heirs, he had obviously achieved success.  That accomplishment, however, was (crucially) evident as one attained without being overtaken by earthly enticements.  As (a) their teacher, his sons were taught (incrementally) – to first follow, then learn – to be (altruistically) led as they grew learned – before attempts at teaching.  As (a) their provider, virtues were among the most important provisions (good work, patience, moderation, perseverance, trust) – that they may be fulfilled, first – before attempts at providing.  As (a) their guide, wisdom (clarity, higher strengths, gifts, and rewards) was shared, in stages, that they may become wise, first – before attempts at leading.

The Prodigal

Whereas one son reflected maturity (the father’s directions embraced, without significant falter), the younger succumbed to tests of faith: “[G]ive me [my] share [now].”  Therein, though already (virtually) having more within touch (and eventual reach) than most could imagine (a house with servants, which would be considered a mansion, a beneficent and prosperous family, abundant resources, honorable hierarchal occupations, and expectations of ultimately receiving at least half of all resting on the foundation), he failed in cores – giving in to temptation.

While being led, there were always choices.  Through (pathways of/to) trust, attaining enough comparative knowledge was possible, as offered (taught) – where the pitfalls of (recovering from) literal experience could be unnecessary: One may learn (of) the evils of riches innocently, while rich (or becoming), and resistantly overcome them as weighted lures.  Or, one may learn (of) those evils ignorantly, via surroundings of birth with resultant (and chosen) tactile tainting, then struggle (tenfold) at critically belated junctures to reel in embedded anchors.  Conclusively, one may also become the richest person in the world while rebuking – without having, or ever having had considerable money (or even a comfortable/acceptable place to live), thus, by way of creative provisions and guides, realize those bonds, yet (ultimately) bypass any lingering/threatening burdens (of tangible tarnishing).

For an essential period (childhood to the brink of manhood), the prodigal son experienced (advantaged) innocence.  For the next, though substantial benefits for growth were always present, he relented to (chose) ignorance.  Consequently, excesses deriving and satisfying from the lowest worldly and spiritual levels awaited.  Instead of, for example, joining with a wholesome wife who principally sustained (a best friend, soul mate, an all-encompassing supporter, fundamental as well as erotic lover, and future mother), the possibility was also there to enjoy the exploitations of a long line of varied women – to be seduced by the power of being able to indulge any seductions, at whims.

Instead of sharing a rich roof, indefinitely, with a family (others), an impetuous partitioning of the riches within could release doors to selfish singularities.  Where the previous protection collectively rewarded presents, incrementally (holding out increasingly more for futures), a divided covering could immediately bestow, individually.  And that, if not turned away as a cycle, originates needs which must be continuously fed – for those new needs (desirous beyond balances) can only be filled momentarily.  Along those paths, each indulgent endeavor will become more and more fleeting – as escalating emptiness ever-encroaches.  As with hunger and thirst, if related callings are constantly answered with sweets and wine each void will temporarily close, yet any lifting will also become exponentially fugitive: instead of nourishing, constant gorging; instead of quenching, ever-deeper drowning.  And that, after having cycled through available circles, is where he awoke – “starving to death” and dry.

When all means are used/accessed without forethought, upon facing fated or chanced famines why would one expect welcoming tables or pitchers?  Therein, where compulsions were reduced to the bottom degrees of survival, his suffering then coincided (unpreparedly) with the poor’s incessant trials: To know the world’s weight, and to be broken by it – though maintaining last vestiges of spirit; to know a few others in the same vein have even triumphantly elevated theirs; to know no advantage – other than realizing the perseverance it takes for them to trudge onward (without crossing over to darkest sides), thus coming to understand passages via harshest terms: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”  Those are among the points where remorse, if true (refreshingly selfless and learnedly reviving), can reward with cleansing evolution: meekness.

Return

From there, his center belatedly aware (literally), he chose a return – in hopes of mercy, that upon arrival he may only gain acceptance as one of the “servants”: ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.  I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’  Remorse revealed and meekness sealed, he was immediately astonished:

“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him.  Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.  Bring the fattened calf and kill it.  Let’s have a feast and celebrate.  For this son of mine . . . was lost and is found.’

As a result, further revelations followed.  Where astonishment encountered compassion, it was also corresponding with a welcoming of ongoing development.  This not only applied to the prodigal son, but the older brother as well.  Was the younger allowed to leave (in love), yet, with the deepest desire that he would return – as the child, and man, the father always wanted him to (cumulatively) be?  Was a call for celebration also reflective of an end to anguish?  Toward the latter and former, the father was still teaching, providing, and guiding.  In response to anger (‘All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders.’): ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.  But we [must be] glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again.’  (Do not judge; understand.)  In response to the possibility of losing a son to the other side being finally answered: triumphant joy and unforgettable forgiveness.  (One may steadily progress on discovering paths if always seeking enlightening answers; upon each provoking turn, never cease in properly searching “why” – for that is a central key.)

Spiritual: The Father (and His Children)

In fuller extent (and ultimate power), what can/should this Father also represent (underlying and overall)? : the spiritual.  What was created (built) and balanced by One?  How much of the legacy was then shared (with heirs), altruistically – before the Gifts were betrayed?  Yet still, even after the fall, Free Will remained – where the most relative choices were offered as invitations toward ongoing lessons.  Within those possibilities, all sons and daughters, as progressive children, could reach maturity (and successively pure rewards), in stages – after enduring implicit or precise tests.  Along the beginning and ending lines, many have been overcome.  Along the same lines, many have also returned – in and from battles, after and until overcoming.  Of these passages it may be undoubtedly known: Should (even) one of His offspring become Lost, there are fountains of tears.  And, should (even) one of them find his or her way home, they will become Found  in the most flowing streams.

A Begotten Son

Again, it was only one short story/parable.  But, as (historical and current) movements clearly convey, in a matter of a few moments He was able to enhance risings, within and without, then, just as He is succeeding today.  Presentations, seemingly basic (initially), were often shared – that each could be touched by highest complexity.  Promises were given – that the blind could see.  Miracles took hold – that the bound (to certain death) could be freed.

A New Testament was scribed of a sent Son – that messages of the sacrificed could be revealed.  Follow first, while accepting guidance – become wise and sealed.

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Hold On
Don’t you recall what you felt
When you weren’t alone
Someone who stood by your side
A face you have known
Where do you run when it’s too much to bear
Who do you turn to in need
When nobody’s there
Outside your door he is waiting
Waiting for you
Sooner or later you know
He’s got to get through
No hesitation and no holding back
Let it all go and you’ll know
You’re on the right track

Ephesians: 14
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves,
and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the
cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

Never Surrender
Modern apathetics; you got plenty of nothing to say
Some are born to follow: some will make their own way
Today you found a hero tomorrow you’ll forget
You’re lookin’ for convenient truth you haven’t found it yet
Never Surrender – we cannot be denied
Never Surrender spread your wings and fly

Reflections: Rich Passages Through Needles

August 5, 2012

(Romney’s Gods Problem)

Matthew 19:24
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

The key is a question: Why?  Without understanding why (where various paths are available for realization), one may acknowledge this passage, yet, never actually care about, or learn (or live) the message – as (a cored) truth.  Thus, for most of them, those who do not righteously seek, and those whose silver-spooned existence since birth has deprived (both by choice and obscured nature) even their imaginations of what the burdens are, of what those burdens lead to for the poor, their paths are essentially predestined in opposition – to discovery, to the answers.

In further exemplification, the latter denials (still) serve to fulfill the most destructive self-serving delusions (and repercussions):

Matthew 21:12-13
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all
them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew
the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them
that sold doves,
And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called
the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

In the present, a rich” “den of thieves” persists in maliciously premeditated mockery – but not only in “house[s] of prayer”; for now, their soullessly hoaxed ideology (as if a religion in itself) has been firmly planted (“that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”) in media and coordinated governmental campaigns worldwide.  To them, as they believe, their time has come.  To those on the outside (of earthly mansions), watching, suffering, and rising (spiritually), many know that this very history was written of – thousands of years ago.  While witnessing the onslaught, their beliefs and convictions (in sacred justifications) will also never falter through these prophesied progressions: out of great tribulation,”  “Here is the patience and the faith” – “in their foreheads” (though, at certain times of calling and duty, also written on their sleeves).

Occupy: A Crucified Movement

December 22, 2011

Where Were You When They Crucified My Movement?

Chris Hedges: “And there comes a time when a true follower of Jesus Christ must take a stand that’s neither safe nor politic nor popular but he must take a stand because it is right.”  “Where is the church now?  Where are the clergy?  Why do so many church doors remain shut?  Why do so many churches refuse to carry out the central mandate of the Christian Gospel and lift up the cross?”

“Some day they are going to have to answer the question:
‘Where were you when they crucified my Lord?'”

Gospel of Thomas, #108: “Whoever drinks from my mouth will become like me; I myself shall become that person, and the hidden things will be revealed to that person.”

Re: (12/25) “Why this insistence with appealing for religions’ support?”

“Christ of the Sermon on the mountain” is the focal point of the article/appeal: the Beatitudes.  If you read/watch it, without nullifying every issue with historical atrocities (those that have occurred sacrilegiously not only in the name of God/Jesus, but from virtually every religion), current moments of teaching might shine through – moments which expose atrocities, implicitly and explicitly – while also emphasizing the coinciding and uplifting Truth: what was meant to be, as guided (Beatitudes/Sermon on the Mount), what has actually happened, and how the corrupted chapters can be confronted (as they have been in the past, so they may also be in the present).

It is a call – to bring together, to take what was learned (from all sides), throughout, to embrace the Light of previous dissenting Stands in the face of evil (where the Word’s directions were being manipulatively trashed), and to Triumph once again with current actions which implement this overall historical knowledge, for/in what is right – Now, in the face of another immediate crucial challenge – one whose textual ending is not yet (earthly) written, and one whose spiritual power is still reaching out to those who wish to accept roles in fulfilling its affinity.

As far as “Religions have always been not only on the side of power but power themselves,” if the choice is still possible, reread, review, rethink, and refocus.  One-sided perspectives of such demeaning proportions most often have become wholly distorted because what was (diminutively) allowed within that schema only reflected (and enhanced) that which was already lost.

Regarding “Take Christ’s teaching as the teaching of one of the many enlightened people who walked on this planet but go as far away as you can from Christianity, a power and propaganda system that has never had anything in common with that Christ of the Sermon on the mountain” – many of those (throughout history) who took up (multifaceted) swords were indeed “enlightened” on various pristine levels, while encountering and experiencing (within/without) both the ultimate negative evolutions as well as the highest evolvements.  During these same periods, a predominance of “another many” also believed they were “enlightened” – while sowing the darkest destruction across this earth (and into relative realms).  Consequently, the latter feeding and fulfillment of the “other” side’s goals, blasphemously In His Name, for whatever then-current (and ongoing) reasons, was often countered and corresponded with the former ultimate Risings.  In doing so, those warriors who were called upon by the very Light were being True to the teachings, messages, and guidance of the holy One, the begotten Son – “who walked this planet” as one of them, meekly – knowing that though His death was written in the utmost cause, His everlasting life would provide a path to God’s kingdom, and Their forever.  They were not “go[ing] as far away as [they] [could] from Christianity,” they were getting ever-closer to the heart of it, thus accepting essential roles in distinct chapters (as intended, as requested, as scrolled and scribed, as manifested).

“Today is Christmas, so it may be a good day to also remember the victims of Christianity, compare to which Nazism and Stalinism fade as young apprentices.  We may see just baby Jesus in the nativity and the lights in the Xmas tree, but that’s because we have been indoctrinated and made blind to our own history.”

In relation to those further words of complete derision, the following words (as the previous) are for resultant clarity in vision – may the outcome be an awakened cleansing, for without there will surely be an ending based on those wholly clouded decisions:

Our Father in heaven, who lives among and within us,
the Judge of every one –
Our Savior, the King of kings, the Lord of what will be done –
may this sightless spirit be taught, that it may eventually see –
may the direction headed be turned,
as it directly opposes your promised eternity.

“Some day they are going to have to answer the question: ‘Where were you when they crucified my Lord?’”  When that time comes,
how will you answer?

In relation to “The Bible’s Vindication” and “The Evolution of God”: We were given (our level of) minds in order that we may think (and grow) – not to be senseless puppets who blindly follow without intellect.  Would God have a multifaceted personality?  Would God also have a wide range of emotions (like us)?  Would He be able to appeal/appear to Buddhists in a manner in which they might expect/understand?  If so, wouldn’t He also do the same for Muslims, Jews, Native Americans, and Christians, etc.?  Along the lines of overall history and the Bible, would it be irrational to think He might change His mind (at critical times) – thus, (over the most extreme circumstances) altering some necessary points?  We were meant to look up – as well as within.  Yes, we can go too far in questioning (if it is beyond distinctive respect, or what was written).  Yet clearly, we are not sent here to be only kissing the ground, without ever searching for answers.  Why?  Because many were meant to be found.

Holy Keys

Matthew 28: 17-20

And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.  

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of [time].  Amen.
