A Fundamental Right of Freedom

In discussing True Democracy that our forefathers brought forth upon this Great Nation under God, this is what I had to say as a thankful American Citizen!

Mr. Smith, Yes so true what you stated above; “The People’s Right To Keep and Bear Arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”  And I add in conjunction our forefathers were speaking to the truth that the “people’s militia” as being “well-structured and synchronized” or (regulated) as in always prepared for “any contingency,” in order to “PRESERVE” that “FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT!”

This is what some of the loud mouths that are so anti-gun and apparently can’t think coming in from LEFT field and parts unknown fail to realize!

That without this BOTTOM-LINE “Right of the People,” “Liberty and a True Democracy of The People” cannot Stand!

The Second Amendment is our only ace in the hole to maintain any real freedoms from a government that can quickly become the enemy of the people as we are witnessing by what we see happening in Washington since 2008.

BEEUTIFUL BEES

I wanted to mention I have grown to appreciate bees much more over the last 15 years when in my travels and around where I have my home bees began being impacted very negatively by mankind and started to diminish drastically.  There are debates going on and numbers get manipulated but when considering the entire world food crop for human consumption one expert seems to be talking more realistic when he said;  “Assuming that the major fruits, nuts and vegetables benefit from pollination, and that most animal food is from flowering plants requiring seed production (eg: alfalfa), that makes for about 55% of world food production benefiting from bees.”

But it is true that 90% of the fruits and nuts along with certain vegetables we enjoy here in America are pollinated most extensively by bees!  Not to mention flowers and shrubbery; what a massive loss and problem it would be if bees disappear; we will see and feel greatly the consequences of that catastrophe if it occurs.

So, needless to say “I Love Bees!” LOL!  Now I’m going to have breakfast a mixture of muesli, oat bran and rolled oats cereals with WALNUTS, BLUEBERRIES, STRAWBERRIES, BANANAS and HONEY; all the items in caps thanks to the BEE!  And, you know the value of those fruits and nuts in a diet to keep us healthy and ward off disease.  Take care and “Have a BEEUTIFUL Day!”   🐝

The Rosary Devotional Meditation

I did some research on the matter of the Rosary and its importance to some Catholics!  It is only in a sense a tool to focus on the praying or speaking to God because it utilizes all the senses and humans being easily distracted creatures of habit that isn’t such a bad idea.  Portions of the Rosary repetition are again directing the person praying it to focus attention on the Divine Mysteries in a devout manner not for the sake of repetitive pagan customs as some have eluded such as the case implied where the King James Version of the Bible speaks to the matter regarding such practices by Christians as being persons “thinking by repeating themselves will be better heard by God.”  Catholics are not doing that if they know what they are doing and why these practices evolved right from Scriptures from the Apostles who wrote those divinely inspired words from God.

I spoke to a priest I know and he did explain to me how saying a Rosary is a devoted form of prayer which is fully accepted and prescribed by the Church, and as I already mentioned how distraction can be our enemy which is another way of putting it in my mind, because I know I do get distracted praying in my usual manner and the Rosary has the quality of focus on communion with Jesus Christ and all of the Divine Mysteries helps any of the countless faithful to overcome that break in focus and devotional humble prayer to God!

A man I met through a former career in the workplace that I got to know very well when I had that government job a while back was a devout Catholic and a Chemist while his wife a microbiologist.  He told me how they both would do Rosaries every day; these people were the real deal being truly devout and the guy actually went to Seminary some years prior to his government position studying theology and also was in a monastery for quite some time just before he was to take his vows to become an ordained priest; but he had an epiphany and God directed him to another mission in life!  This man gave me the pocket size version one day at work just before the time that some bad people moved against me and my troubles began when a serious injury occurred.  The book is “My Imitation of Christ.”  This book by Thomas Kempis has been the second most popular spiritual book only second to the “Sacred Scriptures.”  The first chapter states, “That to follow Christ let it be our chief study to mediate on the life of Jesus Christ.”  It also says, “But it happeneth that many, by frequent hearing of Gospel, are very little affected because they have not the spirit of Christ.”  It goes on in that first chapter to explain that one could know all the Scriptures and still fall short of knowing Jesus Christ and making one’s life “conformable” to Him!  Therefore, I so far think that the Rosary is a tool to “conform” and be in such UN-distracted love and service to God that one is certainly in closer “communion with Christ” by means of the “Holy Spirit” when in a sense one relinquishes self from daily material life and all sensations allowing one to be free of worldly distractions, entering into deep communication with God through Jesus Christ while doing these prayers of the Rosary.  You and I can believe or know that if Jesus came in person right now and spoke to us of this praying of the Rosary, He wouldn’t find any fault in it at all if those doing it are sincerely doing what the stated intention of the devout Rosary practice in praying to God is about; and that anyone caught up in this “devotional meditating” a very intimate and personal thing, that it is surely being loving and faithful to Christ!

I’m sure there could be a long study and discussion of this subject by any of us to try speaking to it in truth as to its benefit or merit or possible fault if any!  I believe many things in this life that we humans do God searches out the heart to know the true intentions behind those actions and will judge accordingly!  But this is why I say doing rosaries would be better time spent for an old granny sitting at a slot machine all day which I have witnessed!  If anything is leading a person astray the latter surely does that in spades!   I was writing this and felt compelled to call the priest I admire the most and even can consider a true friend to say how I’m so moved by the Holy Spirit right now to be writing this and how being in “devout communion with God” is the most important thing we can do, as much and as often as we can, so that we walk with Jesus each day!  I hope we can find the truths we need to find, all of us who seek God’s will, as I am always open to that!

God Bless You and Yours, Brother in Christ Jesus,

Additionally: “The Rosary consists traditionally of three sets of five Mysteries, each Mystery being meditated on while reciting a decade (a set of ten) of Ave Marias. The 150 Ave Marias of the Rosary thus echo the 150 psalms. These Mysteries concern events of Jesus’ life during his childhood (Joyful Mysteries), Passion (Sorrowful Mysteries), and from his Resurrection onwards (Glorious Mysteries). Another set, the Luminous Mysteries, is of comparatively recent origin, having been proposed by Pope John Paul II in 2002. Each decade of Ave Marias is preceded by the Our Father (Pater Noster or The Lord’s Prayer) and followed by the Glory Be (Gloria Patri) (Doxology). The repetition of the fixed-language prayers assists recitation from the heart rather than the head. Pope Paul V said that “the Rosary is a treasure of graces … Even for those souls who pray without meditating, the simple act of taking the beads in hand to pray is already a remembrance of God – of the supernatural”.

learn to adapt

Everyone is different and we of course have many similarities in that we are all human beings but also many acute differences making us individuals. This world and we who inhabit it were not meant to be perfect or live in such a tumultuous plane of existence in blissful harmony!  You mention adversity and to me that is the key to our being here, to meet any and all challenges with tenacity and determination to see what we can do with what is before us, to never quit or give into the great lack or imperfections that infect this world. Many unfortunately it appears give into circumstance or that lack of this or that while others say no way I won’t accept this and fight to change whatever they can or at least in the process themselves, hopefully for the better!

My wonderful father told me something once when I was a very young teen, he said, “Lawrence my son in this world a person has to come to realize that it comes down to adaptability!” He added, “That you have to learn to adapt to whatever comes your way in life and accept and make the best of things, because you’re not going to change the world.” Very wise I realized in time that my father had this objective wisdom that he imparted to me, as I would later recognize we are all “individual works of ART” and no telling what each will be in the final analysis, or until the fat lady sings!  Each of us have multitudes of decisions or moments in the finite plane of material living and each one alters the path we are on whether ever so slightly or dramatically; each one leads to the remaining moments of the rest of our lives and no telling how it will all sift out!   I could have been a shit heel almost all the way to the finish line cheating others and more importantly cheating myself, but perhaps before it’s over see “the light” that God has put in this world for all to realize which is of a Divine nature and infinitely wiser than any of the wisest among us; telling me that this must be the ticket, to be “divinely inspired” is a sure bet to accomplishing our own “individual mission” which is all in the “hands of God ,” not us or any conceptualization one can ponder, let go and with “humility” say I’m yours Lord to mold and shape as “You will.”

Just like the criminal on the right side of Jesus at Calvary being crucified for his crimes he saw the light before it was too late and the other criminal to His left denied the LIGHT causing his eyes to be plucked out!

We have FREE WILL to change Course and Consequence every single second of our lives!  Plenty of opportunity to answer God; before He either embraces us or let’s go!

It’s not about formulas, programs or cookie cutter patterns to follow for success.

“God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change…the Courage to change the things I can…and the Wisdom to know the difference.”

The Lost World Earth

With the lightning speed advancements of AI along with the accompanying immersive VR/AR/MR worlds being developed for mass distribution throughout the planet I envision what is coming as the acceleration of mankind toward its final destination, the Apocalypse!

The building of a high tech world that will have No Character or Real Substance, but instead just a lot of fakers and delusional misrepresentation of past reality!  Humans are attempting to move deeper and deeper into the artificial and non-existent realm from the land of the actual living, then on into the Dead Zone.  Not an upgrade for the human race but a decline in HUMANity.

Profit making allures are being executed while distracting people from the value and true importance of life, into a world of deceptions and nefarious sinister designs; to make mankind OBSOLETE!

Mark my words if this trend continues the “human beings” on Earth will “cease” to Exist!

Divine Providence and God’s Will

It’s said “follow the money;” and whose money is fueling what politics or projects to manipulate the masses; clearly things only get much uglier from here!  Time for more faith in God and doing His will is imperative, not our own.  The serpent has a mighty grip, struggling feverishly without Divine guidance is to no avail.  Like our forefathers who began this Great Nation to escape the clutches of the rulers of tyranny and oppression we must be in the ready to give all but only if truly being a servant of the Creator will these efforts be of a greater value and succeed.  Just like the words of Abraham Lincoln at his First Inaugural Address stated so well, “The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave, to every heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”  This is the alignment we must strive for as we march into the battles ahead, because nothing that men can come up with alone devoid of God and His supernatural powers will be enough to overcome the enemies that surround us from without and within!  We Need His army of Angels with us each step of the way!

Only One Path to Eternal Life

You who save and promote the end of cruelty to animals, of course that is a good work or deed and I do believe like so many good people with a kind heart we should want to promote this cause; but we must be in the front lines of defending “Human Babies” first; and commit to that cause or the others are a waste of your time and energy according to God!

Too many say look at me I do so much for innocent animals and when before God on their judgment day that will not fly at all!  God tells us this in the Holy Scriptures where he states clearly that many will say, but Lord did I not do all these good deeds and works in your name, surely I must be counted as worthy!  “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble.(Luke 17:2)  This means any innocent but specifically God was referring to children.

“So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.(James 4:17)

“I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” (Jeremiah 17:10)

“I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am He who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds”(Revelation 2:23)

“Then they said to Him [Jesus], “What must we do to perform the works of God? Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent. (John 6:28,29)

“And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges Me before others, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God; but whoever denies Me before others will be denied before the angels of God.” (Luke 12:8,9)

“The one who rejects Me and does not receive My word has a judge; on the last day the Word that I have spoken will serve as judge.” (John 12:48)

“Those who believe in Him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.” (John 3:18,19)

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God – not the result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,9)

“He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but according to His mercy, through the water of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.” (Titus 3:5)

I say this to all of you as a servant of God the Father in Heaven from his Holy Words to us His children.

Each of you reading this post take to heart these departing words I share with you, as these should make it clear that you have only little time to make up your mind and heart while there is still time to do so, because these words are what you must shudder in fear of potentially hearing from Him!

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.  On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?  And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.” Matthew (7:21-23)

Therefore “all you LinkedIn people” that actually care where you end up for Eternity and love “Goodness and Truth,” beware we have all been forwarded and our personal clocks could run out of time at any moment; as well the entire material worlds clock is running out, whether you want to call it the secular Doomsday Clock being a couple of minutes to Midnight, or according to the Holy Scriptures clearly defining in the book of Revelations that the END is coming at the “appointed hour!”  So take these words and work them into your consciousness and daily life here on earth in earnest!

Philippians 2:12 Paul wrote, “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”

“So then, dear friends, as you always obeyed me when I was with you, it is even more important that you obey me now while I am away from you. Keep on working with fear and trembling to complete your salvation,”   Good News Translation

God Help Us All!  Amen.
