A Picture worth 1000 words

Was asked recently, What is your belief system? After some thought as to not be an ass, I said that I didn’t have one. They looked at me as if I was a fresh piece of meat. To explain.

Consider with me if you would for just a second. The Children of Israel don’t have a belief system They didn’t have a choice about being the Children of Israel, They are born Jews. They simply live doing what they read and pass down for generations and doing what it says.

It’s not any different for so-called born again Christians. If they are born again, or adopted in to the family of Abraham by the blood. They are Children of Israel and don’t have a belief system either. Or at least they aren’t supposed to. The belief system of most is Idol worship and bears no truth, we are to read share and pass down our deliverance from Pharaohs captivity just like the Old Testament in Egypt.

We are born into this life, unlike Israel we had a choice. It is there that belief ends and knowledge begins. I don’t believe anything. I know because I am born in to the family of God not by attaining but by loving and living each day with the experiential knowledge of my relationship with my God and his people.

I hear a babbling brook as it ambles through the meadow.

Spewing forth it sloshes and drops as words upon the rocks and shore.

Declaring what a great river it is yet,  Still you are a babbling brook.

It is true that one day you will travel far enough to eventually mingle with a great river.

But in the end you will disappear into a great Ocean and become so absorbed by it,

That you will only be a part of something much bigger than the babbling brook.

Spew on little one while you can.

If I only could have told you.

Listen, you won’t understand what they are doing in boot camp, when done though you will be a Marine. Having graduated you will have earned that title. Little do you know what that means. After infantry training and aviation school will be helicopter school and again you’ll have no idea what is coming your way.

A short break and your first unit, you will be all dialed in and become a crew chief; now you have your own bird.

They pack your unit up and load all of it with you onboard a navy ship, yours is the USS Ogden.

The trip wasn’t bad, but next you put into Okinawa for a bit of last-minute liberty. Then off again to the position just off Phu-Bi, Viet Nam.

You will spend the entire night on deck watching mortar and rocket fire with the occasional small arms shoot out. It is going to be eerie and you will be unsettled and maybe fearful. Struggling through the night there will be an awareness and a decision will be made to face the fact that you will in fact die here. There and then you will embrace death and in fact something will die in you, but now you find yourself settled and ready to go do your job. You are a Marine Crew Chief on a CH-53D Helicopter. Let the games begin.

The missions start almost as soon as you hit the beach. Taking fire is a normal experience. You won’t allow your thoughts to swerve, even a little, since there is too much going on and you don’t have room or time for self-indulgence.

You have a good crew manning the door guns and the pilots have spent a good bit of time with training for this mission. BUT, nothing could have prepared you for this. It would be overwhelming if it wasn’t for you’re embracing death. Life will never be the same.

Don’t get too close to anyone, they will be gone tomorrow and you don’t have time for grief.

Let your little boy go now, and only remember your training.

You will not be able to deal with the horrors of what war does, there is no way to turn it off.

If you survive, don’t forget to give your little boy permission to go home with you. If you don’t, it will take you most of your life to allow him to be part of your life again.

In all your efforts to avoid being close to others, you will find some that just are close anyway. When you lose them it will be forever etched in your soul.

Fear is always present, strangely not for yourself, but  for the innocent people caught in the middle. Children, elders, strangers and their dogs.

It’s okay, you didn’t cause this. None of this is your fault.

You will spend the rest of your life looking for understanding, but to no avail, unless you happen to stumble upon other Veterans.

If  either you or the others aren’t hiding inside yourselves, then you can be of help and find a little comfort in the fact that it wasn’t only you.

When everything shakes down as you’re rapidly approaching the end of your earthly life, all that is bottled up inside you will have become your friend and companion.

You will look forward to the day when you stand on the deck of the ship of time and look longingly at your new home.

New Creation

•04/20/2015 • Leave a Comment

It would seem very natural, that if at any point in our life we experience a transformation. It will take some time for our nature to change, and a lot more to mature, to the place that we live unconsciously in our new nature. I would liken this to an evolution of natural growth, to the extent we become new. As if a seed is planted within, then with time it becomes all consuming.

It is interesting that in the walk of life we seem to think we need to push things to make it better. We push our spouse to be the perfect companion and to achieve his highest good. We push our children it seems from a very early age to be all they can be just keep on pushing up the ladder of education, next success, then who knows what. We get on the Freeway and push the person in front of us to gain a second and we are being pushed at the same time. Usually there is nowhere to go and if your patient you will see all of them down the road at the accident caused by a pusher, who forgot to push the brakes.

From my stand point, if you are pushing for anything, you are never going to learn to FOLLOW!

It is becoming obvious to me that most people in religious circles today, don’t understand the concept of philosophy has nothing to do with relationship. Know this, that all Religions are a philosophy. A relationship is built over time and very personal.

Spiritual beings.

•02/23/2015 • Leave a Comment

I was recently asked if I thought that all Humans were spiritual beings. For some reason I snapped an answer back, NO!

Now some days later I am considering the question again. First it isn’t important what I think. Secondly I can speak for only myself, not for others.

I am not by nature a spiritual being, I need to first define this status. Which I believe I have done in my blog “Spiritual”. My quick answer was In my opinion correct. We are not all spiritual beings. I was not even aware of this concept for many years. I was only aware of one thing that being if I am going to have any inkling of how to communicate with or even be communicated to by God, I must first be in spirit, then in truth. Sorry I really don’t know how to tell you to do this. Remember I am talking about me here. I did not initiate my first contact with my life breather, but after that first connection, I understood that I was now able to “hear” ? “feel” ? Understand something? This was obviously not me, I am grateful for the new awareness though, even though I didn’t truly understand it.

So then are we spiritual beings? You decide! I don’t care what we call it as long as my love for my God never leaves me.

I think we would do well not to make God small enough so that we can understand him, but maybe try to expand in our inner person in order to make room for the God-given understanding  we can receive from him.

Why are you here?

I want to preface these words with a statement. ( We are only given this moment.) There is no promise we have the next moment, day week or Year. Only one moment at a time.

Now back to the title. I envision for this moment we are in  a meeting room discussing spiritual maters. What ever that means. Now I ask the question. Why are you here? The answers that I receive are as many and as varied as the number of people sitting in this room. Is there a correct answer? Not to me! For me though there is a correct answer, as there is with each one of us. I won’t suppose to know each answer,  but I will say this one thing. The answer will reveal to each of us what our motivation, hopes and desires are. Study these and you may find the answer to some of your own questions. Such as does God speak to us today? Why don’t I understand what this means? I am thwarted at every turn in my search for spiritual awareness,  Is there something I am doing wrong. Test the heart, know the spirit, let the Soul find its true place of rest. You shall be known by your fruit.

Oh! this test works in any environment.

Le Cross

•11/05/2014 • 1 Comment

Question: Do you have a cross hanging from some part of you body? How about a Tatoo of a cross on you body some where. How many crosses do you have in your home or on your car, bike or boat ect. What does this symbolize for you? What does it mean.

Did it occurs to you that a cross is an implement of death. It was used for torture and execution throughout history which you can study for yourself. It is used today as a method of attaching steep and goats for the purpose of cooking in south America and other nations around the world.

I was during the Roman period considered one of the cruelest forms of torture and execution possible.

Now back to the Question. Is the cross a symbol you really want to hang on a building or your body. If so what are you saying to all who see?

Don’t get me wrong, Christ told his followers to pick up there own cross and follow him. What do you think he was saying? That this walk is a piece of cake with tons of benefits? I submit to you that this was an invitation to experience your own crucifixion. Pain suffering and death. Perhaps some of us were a little to quick to jump on the band wagon. This symbol is not an advertisement gimmick .

It is a path to death of your life.

With the hope of resurrection! When you think about the misuse of the cross by every religion associated with it and the people they have duped into believing there is some special nice experience, obviously haven’t actually looked at the process of Christ being nailed to the cross.

Think! for yourself and only follow the God who beckons you.

Have you ever been outside at night in the pitch black night with clear sky’s? I get to do that periodically , I just marvel at the immensity of it all it goes on for ever. So many stars and planets than it boggles the imagination to consider how this happened. According to the big bang theory by an accident in the cosmos. I have read, that God spans the universe in the palm of his hand, another mind boggling statement . I find it takes one hell of a lot more faith to believe the big bang theory, that it does to think that there is a creator, and the plus side of that is that when the shit hits the fan in our world I trust that God is still on the throne, I don’t always understand but I do always trust.
