0% of humanity's Greats didn't swim up stream.

If you are not alone, not swimming up-stream, not swimming against the tide... you are probably not going to help us; you are almost certainly not going to change the direction of things.

Can you think of any exceptions? I cannot.

WE LIVE IN FEAR OF THE WRONG THINGS

Well, this just hit me as I was marching the other day.

I've been pretty influenced by fears most of my life. I now know for certain that I've been lived by the WRONG FEARS:
  • Love & acceptance of my spouse
  • Being married / in a "relationship"
  • Safety
  • Security
  • Respectability
  • Resources
  • Mobility
  • Health care
  • Disappointing our parents, inlaws, families
  • Being "normal"
  • Acceptance by society

I now have experienced, and now I know that: The only fear we should have is not Living the Will of the Almighty (Truth, Love, Life), the Will of Our Father. Why? Why should you not worry about eating at 100 different McDonald's before you die? Start Loving

The fact of death should not sadden us. The only thing that should sadden us is to know that we are not saints. Teresa of Calcutta

"LOVE AND JOY ARE IN SHARING THE EMERGENCY." Start Loving

Love and Joy are in sharing the emergency. No? Start Loving

Love the stranger. Jesus
Love your enemy. Jesus
Love your neighbor as yourself. Jesus
Love as I have loved. Jesus

I've long suspected the following but this morning as I marched for Darfur in front of the Chinese Embassy it came clear:
  • WE BELONG IN EMERGENCY: Who needs our help, the sister that is doing fine, or the sister in emergency?
  • OUT OF LOVE WE SHARE THE EMERGENCY OF FAMILY: Who is my neighbor? Jesus answer was the story of the Good Samaritan. Everybody!
  • JOY IS THE RESULT OF SHARING THE EMERGENCY. No?
  • THE MORE NEEDY BROTHERS & SISTERS WE CONNECT TO (WITH is too conditional) THE MORE EMERGENCY WE SHARE IN AND THE MORE JOY IN OUR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!! BINGO! This is what Jesus was dying to pull us into!

OUR "IMPACT" EQUALS HOW WE SPEND OUR TIME

If I spend my time selling stuff [adictions] to the materially rich [which is how I spent most of my life], that is what my impact is. Despite how much money I make a give to the "poor" in the process what $ I spend has NOTHING to do with what my impact is.

How can that be?
  • The world is dying for Models of sustanable living, militant loving that results in Peace.
  • The world is clinically sick.
  • The world needs mass Therapy, not more Stuff, Superiority or Systems / Institutions.

"It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing." Teresa of Calcutta

"Aspire not to have more but to be more." Oscar Romero

"The less we have, the more we give. Seems absurd, but it's the logic of love." Teresa of Calcutta

"God does not demand that I be successful. God demands that I be faithful." Teresa of Calcutta

WE EQUAL HOW WE SPEND OUR TIME

"Aspire not to have more but to be more." Oscar Romero

We know that scientists can take our tissue and tell for example whether we are vegitarians or not. We are what we eat. We are, we equal how we spend our time. This is an absolute law. Our nervous system, and our soul is made up of how we spend our time.

"LOVE AND JOY MEAN SHARING THE SAME FATE." Start Loving

"Love... [is] not ... able to avoid making sacrifices." Teresa of Calcutta

"Those committed to the poor must share the same fate as the poor." Oscar Romero

Transforming "they should" into "I'M GOING TO TRY..."

All I can tell you that I have the most wonderful "Path" finder. When I find myself thinking "they [or s/he] should" I realize that what the Almighty is telling me is that "I'm going to try to do it [fix it, create it...]," OR "I'm going to forget it for now [because it is not important enough.]"

There is no third option given the world's emergency. The Almighty (Love, Life, Truth) are not going to ask me what anyone else did. The Almighty only asks what I did.

Same for you.

PEACEMAKING, THE FINAL FRONTIER...GOING WHERE THIS MAN HAS NEVER GONE BEFORE

I always was drawn to the excitement in our movies and adventure books, TV shows, etc. Star Trek for example. I guess most of us are so drawn or otherwise these stories would not be so successful.

I now live the adventure. PeaceMAKING / Militant Loving / Mass Therapy. Every day. Ahhhhhhhh.

Teresa: "As you do unto the least of these..."

"Whatever You Did Unto One of the Least, You Did Unto Me"

by Mother Teresa of Calcutta

From the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, D.C., February, 1994

"On the last day, Jesus will say to those on His right hand, 'Come enter the Kingdom. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was sick and you visited me.' Then Jesus will turn to those on His left hand and say, 'Depart from me because I was hungry and you did not feed me, I was thirsty and you did not give me to drink, I was sick and you did not visit me.' These will ask Him, 'When did we see You hungry, or thirsty or sick and did not come to Your help?'. And Jesus will answer then, 'Whatever you neglected to do unto one of the least of these, you neglected to do unto Me!'

"As we have gathered here to pray together, I think it will be beautiful if we begin with a prayer that expresses very well what Jesus wants us to do for the least. St. Francis of Assisi understood very well these words of Jesus and His life is very well expressed by a prayer. And this prayer, which we say every day after Holy Communion, always surprises me very much, because it is very fitting for each one of us. And I always wonder whether 800 years ago when St. Francis lived, they had the same difficulties that we have today. I think that some of you already have this prayer of peace - so we will pray it together.

"Let us thank God for the Opportunity He has given us today to have come here to pray together. We have come here especially to pray for Peace, Joy, and Love. We are reminded that Jesus came to bring the good news to the poor. He had told us what is that good news when He said: 'My Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you.' He came not to give the peace of the world which is only that we don't bother each other. He came to give the Peace of heart which comes from loving - from doing good to others.

"And God loved the world so much that He gave His Son - it was a giving. God gave His Son to the Virgin Mary, and what did she do with Him? As soon as Jesus came into Mary's life, immediately she went in haste to give that good news. And as she came into the house of her cousin, Elizabeth, Scripture tells us that the unborn child - the child in the womb of Elizabeth - leapt with joy. While still in the womb of Mary - Jesus brought Peace to John the Baptist who leapt for joy in the womb of Elizabeth.

"And as if that were not enough, as if it were not enough that God the Son should become one of us and bring Peace and Joy while still in the womb of Mary, Jesus also died on the Cross to show that greater Love. He died for you and for me, and for that leper and for that man dying of hunger and that naked person lying in the street, not only of Calcutta, but of Africa, and everywhere. Our Sisters serve these poor people in 105 countries throughout the world. Jesus insisted that we love one another as He loves each one of us. Jesus gave His Life to love us and He tells us that we also have to give whatever it takes to do good to one another. And in the Gospel Jesus says very clearly: 'Love as I have loved you.'

"Jesus died on the Cross because that is what it took for Him to do good to us - to save us from our selfishness in sin. He gave up everything to do the Father's Will - to show us that we too must be willing to give up everything to do God's Will - to love one another as He loves each of us. That is why we too must give to each other until it hurts.

"It is not enough for us to say: 'I love God', but I also have to love my neighbor. St. John says that you are a liar if you say you love God and you don't love your neighbor. How can you love God whom you do not see, if you do not love your neighbor whom you see, whom you touch, with whom you live? And so it is very important for us to realize that love, to be true, has to hurt. I must be willing to give whatever it takes not to harm other people and, in fact, to do good to them. This requires that I be willing to give until it hurts. Otherwise, there is no true love in me and I bring injustice, not peace, to those around me.

"It hurt Jesus to love us. We have been created in His Image for greater things, to love and to be loved. We just 'put on Christ' as Scripture tells us. And so, we have been created to love as He loves us. Jesus makes Himself the hungry one, the naked one, the homeless one, the unwanted one, and He says, "You did it unto Me." On the last day He will say to those on His right, 'Whatever you did to the least of these, you did to Me', and He will also say to those on His left, 'Whatever you neglected to do for the least of these, you neglected to do it for Me'.

"When He was dying on the Cross, Jesus said, 'I thirst'. Jesus is thirsting for our love, and this is the thirst of everyone, poor or rich alike. We all thirst for the love of others, that they will go out of their way to avoid harming us and to do good to us. This is the meaning of truest love, to give until it hurts.
[ABOVE IS SOME OF THE MOST SACRED WRITING OF ALL TIME.]
[BELOW IS UTTER TRIPE AND ALL BUT DESTROYS THE ENTIRE POTENTIAL VALUE OF TERESA TO HUMANITY]

"I can never forget the experience I had in visiting a home where they kept all these old parents of sons and daughters who had just put them into an institution and forgotten them - maybe. I saw that in that home these old people had everything - good food, comfortable place, television, everything, but everyone was looking toward the door. And I did not see a single one with a smile on the face. I turned to Sister and I asked: 'Why do these people, who have every comfort here, why are they all looking toward the door? Why are they not smiling?'

"I am so used to seeing the smiles on our people, even the dying ones smile. And Sister said: 'This is the way it is nearly every day. They are expecting, they are hoping that a son or daughter will come to visit them. They are hurt because they are forgotten.' And see, this neglect to love brings spiritual poverty. Maybe in our own family we have somebody who is feeling lonely, who is feeling sick, who is feeling worried. Are we there? Are we willing to give until it hurts in order to be with our families, or do we put our own interests first? These are the questions we must ask ourselves, especially as we begin this year of the family. We must remember that love begins at home and we must also remember that the future of humanity passes through the family." NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. JESUS DIED TO TELL US THAT THERE ARE NO DOUBLE STANDARDS. ALL PEOPLE ARE ONE FAMILY AND WE ARE TO ATTEND TO THE LEAST OF THESE OUR FAMILY - NOT THE NEAREST "BLOOD" "FAMILY" TO US. TERESA AND HER FOLLOWERS DIDN'T MAKE THIS MISTAKE AND NEITHER SHOULD WE.

From "ME 2 WE." A New Blog

NEW BLOG:


Joy is to Life what Heat is to Electricity

Gladness.

"OUR FATHER... LEAD US NOT INTO ["ME"...]"

"...whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these." USCCB - NAB - John 14 12.

In the spirit of John 14:12 I share what has been revealed to me:

"Our Father... lead us not into ["me"];
But, Deliver us [to "WE," Militant PeaceMaking, Brotherliness, Heaven]..."

better captures what Jesus intended.

"OUR FATHER... DELIVER US [TO "WE;" TO PEACEMAKING]..."

"...whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these." USCCB - NAB - John 14 12.

In the spirit of John 14:12 I share what has been revealed to me:

"Our Father... lead us not into ["me"];
But, Deliver us [to "WE," Militant PeaceMaking, Brotherliness, Heaven]..."

better captures what Jesus intended.

OUR RELIGION WE PRACTICE? PROSTITUTION.

Astonishing. As a professional in the computer industry, for decades I've used and heard the expression "prostituted himself / herself." Have we not all heard that?

Def: a person who willingly uses his or her talent or ability in a base and unworthy way, usually for money.

Well, what does Our Father have to say about this?
  • "Life is given, not for oneself personally, but for the fulfillment of the Father's will, which alone saves from death and gives life." Gospel in Brief
  • "Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me." USCCB - NAB - Mark 8 34

Are these exhortations from Our Father what we do in our society? Prostitute ourselves is what we do in our society with all the religious fervor we can muster.

NOT "as you do unto the LESSER of these..."

But isn't "lesser" exactly the word whe "hear" when we think of this scripture?

These that follow are who we "do unto," are they not? Are they "the least of these" or "the [LESSER] of these?!?!??!"
  • My bioligical child [who happens to be infinitely better off than most of my 4 billion children?]
  • My demanding wife.
  • My cranky mother.
  • My disgruntled older sister.
  • My boss.
  • My disagreeable co-worker....

Jesus gave us the SOLUTION TO LIFE: "As you do unto the LEAST of these my family you do unto me."

What we COULD pay for with our lives.

Currently we pay for all sorts of stuff with our lives right?
  • Good grades
  • Social acceptance
  • "Family" peace and acceptance
  • Sex (yup). No not necessarily with money. There are lots of way to prostitute ourselves.
  • Promotions.
  • Bigger dwelling.
  • Better school for me and mine.
  • Nicer clothes.
  • Better furniture.
  • Stuff.
  • Superiority.
  • Systems and Institutions.
  • Etc.
  • Etc.

Think of what we could pay for with our lives!!!!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME:

  • End of 18,000 children starving to death per day
  • End the occupation of Palestine
  • End the attrocities in Darfur
  • End the slaughter in Darfur
  • End the suffering and neglect of Katrina
  • End the holocaust in front of us due to global warming
  • Etc.
  • Etc.
  • Etc...

The Empire that is U.S.

It is out of the goodness of our heart that we have in excess of 1000 U.S. military bases around the world right?

It is not so that we can secure / exploit the best resources at the lowest price for US consumers and US capitalist interests. Right? It is the poor and needy in these societies that are benefiting from our presence. Right.

US Military Bases Around the World
by Populist Party
Fri Mar 16, 2007 at 03:36:33 PM PDT

...People in US cities would be outraged if another country garrisoned its troops close by with all the resulting fallout: unacceptable noise, pollution, environmental destruction, appropriation of valued public real estate along with drunken soldiers on the loose violating laws, causing damage and raping local women. Not the kinds of neighbors we choose, especially when they're mostly unaccountable for their actions...

Chalmers Johnson, in his book Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic, reviews the known number of US bases in other countries by size and branch of service. According to the Department of Defense's Base Structure Report through 2005, the official total of all sizes is 737, but so many were built in recent years, Johnson believes the actual number exceeds 1000 and is rising. Unlisted ones includes dozens in Iraq, 106 garrisons in Afghanistan, the gigantic Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo built after the Yugoslav war in 1999, and others in Eastern Europe, Israel, Qatar and other Gulf states plus ongoing negotiations all the time to build new bases in new locations in new and currently "occupied" countries.

Beware of "Twelve Tribes"

Twelve Tribes of Israel is a cult. It broke my heart to discover this. I don't know if they know they are a cult. I don't know if the founders realize it. Oh my. I came within inches of joining them, after months of exploration, prayer. It was only at the last seconds that enough experience had accumulated within me that I could see that they are not about worshiping the Divine, the Almighty, the Father within us, but rather they are about surrendering to the Power Structure they have formed within including their first and second generation of children, some of whom I have witnessed displaying what I can only describe as Naziesque behavior:
  • smiling viciousness visited on a visitor in their presence - a middle aged woman who obviously was damaged by abuse in her life.
  • repeatedly dismissing a wife as one might have expected a black slave to be dismissed by a black hearted master.
  • rank arrogance displayed by the power structure / hierarchy;
  • a hierarchy of approval by their "leader," NOT a hierarchy of Love / Otherishness / Brotherliness....

They do so much correctly - location, simplicity, health.... But as almost all attempts it has been mortally corrupted by the desire of men to control other men, and of course, women.

ML King: "Life's most urgent and persistant question..."

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?' " Martin Luther King, Jr.

God damn it! We have been so damaged, so corrupted in our ability to communicate / hear.

Don't you hear Dr. King's words, as I did, as a weighty moral commandment?!??!?!?

IT IS A SOLUTION TO LIFE. LIFE! Dr. King, like Jesus, is telling us how to gain the full experience of Life!!! He is giving us the solution! Let's get on with it!!!!!

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?' " Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give." Eleanor Roosevelt;

"The joy in life is to be used for a purpose. I want to be used up when I die." George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)

WE ARE "DYING" FOR MODELS

This is the single greatest problem in the world. How to live joyfully? How to be good? How to "Save" others? How to "Save" ourselves?...

THERE ARE NO MODELS TODAY, VIRTUALLY NONE!

HOW DO WE EXPECT ANYONE TO "GET IT" IF THERE ARE NO MODELS?

WE NEED TO BECOME MODELS, GREAT MODELS.

"Ignorance is bliss..."FUL MASS MURDER!!!!!!!!

Duh!! It is just amazing how diluded we are and how long, oh how long it takes to climb up to the light.

I grew up in a town, Short Hills, among the most wealthy in the world! My mom was a social hub of this town! What blisful ignorance!!!!!!! What blisful blindness!!!!!!

There are two ways to have a world that looks like heaven:
  1. Create Heaven in the material world.
  2. Obscure that which is not Heavenly and construct for YOU AND YOURS the best you can.

JESUS: MUCH "PLANTING." LITTLE "CULTIVATING."

Jesus didn't spend much time in one place, or chasing after folks.

Followers Jesus did spend repeated and considerable time with, but never chasing after followers / disciples I suspect.

Let's do the same.

MUCH "PLANTING."
LITTLE "CULTIVATING."


Why little time "cultivating?" Jesus said it has to do with "many are called, but few are chosen."

HELL = SEPARATION FROM LOVE / LIFE / TRUTH.

I testify that I would die if I returned to my life of Selfishness / Neglect / Indifference / Separation from "the LEAST of these my family." It would be Hell.

I wish I had known this 30 years ago.

MY QUEST: WHAT WOULD HAVE SAVED ME

This site would have Saved me from 30 years of Hell, off of the Path.

Although I expect to spend much time with it, studying it, if I ever forget it, please return me to this site.

"Start, you love [everyone] so deeply," the Sister observed.

I testify:
  1. Think of the person you most love in the world.
  2. Feel how much that love means to you.
  3. Each other person you learn to love that much will multiply your Joy / Love / Fulness by almost that much.
Unleashing "Lusting" is the solution to Greed / Mammon / Selfishness / Stuff / Superiority / Systems - Institutions / Pleasure / Hell.

Unleashing "Loving" is the solution to Life / Love / Truth / Soul / Solidarity / Serving / Joy / Heaven.

WWOFHUD: WHAT WOULD OUR FATHER HAVE US DO?

Jesus did not ask what "Jesus" would do. Although I think we should!

Jesus asked
"What would Our Father have us do?"
EVERYTHING ON THIS SITE IS ENCAPSULATED IN THIS POST AND THE ASSOCIATED LINKS ABOVE.

WHEN THIS PRAYER, PRAYED THIS WAY IS THE CENTER OF MY LIFE I AM ON THE PATH.

JESUS' PRAYER IS PERFECT.

"GIVE EVERYTHING AND FREE YOUR SPIRIT." Start Loving

Well, this is how it is.

For the first third of my life I took and almost never gave. It was Hell. Drowning in pleasure, starving for joy.

In the last half of my life I have given everything, as best I have known how, to others. Pleasure has been at an ever accelerating decrease. JOY ABOUNDS. PEACE ABOUNDS. HEAVEN.


"GIVE EVERYTHING AND
FREE YOUR SPIRIT."

Start Loving

Man is an intelligence
in servitude to his organs.

For YOU it will be LUSTING or LOVING

For me too of course.

A switch is on OR off.

At any instant a PC is being used for Word OR Excel.

A piece of steel is a shovel OR a pitchfork.

For YOU it will be LUSTING or LOVING

"Start, having an impact?" AS MUCH AS I CAN.

What can make a father work harder, suffer more, risk more than Love for his child?

Love is the greatest taskmaster.

The question I most hear from the rare person that stops to talk as I march all day at the Sudan Embassy in DC is, "Are you having an impact?"

THE PRIMARY QUESTION
IN THE FACE OF EMERGENCY
IS NEVER -
"ARE YOU HAVING AN IMPACT?"
AS A SECONDARY QUESTION FOR
GUIDANCE / TARGETING THIS QUES. CAN HELP.

THE PRIMARY QUESTION
IN THE FACE OF EMERGENCY IS -
"IS THIS YOUR BEST CHANCE
TO ALLEVIATE THE EMERGENCY?"

WHAT ARE YOU ASKING YOURSELF?

SIN is ERROR. NOTHING LESS!

What do you mean by "nothing less" Start?

"Less" than "error" are - Guilt, "I know I should," I'll go to Hell if I don't..., it is Bad....

What?!?!!?!? These are LESS THAN "Error?!?!?!?"

Yes. I'll show you with an example that applies to me, but if you want you can imagine one that applies to you:

My biological father, who I worship(ed) as a man of great knowledge, wisdom, character and toughness was my driving teacher as a teen. He taught me to drive.

"KEEP BOTH HANDS ON THE WHEEL AT ALL TIMES," he commanded! Well, when he was in the car with me I sulkingly and cowardly obeyed. BUT, OH BOY, WHEN HE WAS NOT WITH ME, ONE HAND IS WHAT I TYPICALLY USED; EASIER, MORE RELAXED, MORE COOL!!!! I FELT GUILTY! I KNEW I SHOULD! I KNEW I WAS BEING BAD! But all these I could tolerate!

Then one dark, gray, rainy afternoon I found myself on a cattle-chute like, under construction stretch of highway. ERROR! Both hands went to the wheel!!!

I WAS UNWILLING TO PAY THE PRICE
OF WHAT THEN I COULD SEE WAS
ERROR - VIOLATING THE
GOOD WISDOM IMPARTED
BY MY FATHER.

!!!!!!!NO DOUBLE STANDARDS. EVER!!!!!!

Probably the entire contents of this site, everything I've learned, everything I believe Jesus and the other "Greats" learned and taught can be reduced to this:

NO DOUBLE STANDARDS. EVER.

Do unto others ALL
that you would have them do unto you

Love your brother as yourself

Love your enemy

As you do unto the least of these
MY FAMILY, you do unto me

ONE FATHER. EVERYONE IS
"IMMEDIATE FAMILY."
GET ON WITH IT.

UBUNTU:

An ancient African word meaning
"humanity to others";
and
"I AM WHAT I AM
BECAUSE OF WHO WE ALL ARE".

"A TIME TO KILL." BEHOLD SALVATION. "WE"

A Time to Kill (1996)

More recently I have written: LOVE is COURAGE is CONNECTION is TRUTH. (Please scan this post and then return here.)

See this movie. When you do you will see a cataclysmic scene toward the end where the afore mentioned Post is achieved / illustrated like a thunder clap. Brilliant. Blindingly divine. In the blink of an eye a group of people are transported before our eyes from Hell to Heaven. Salvation, what it is, how it happens, what it means all there to see in a the universe of five seconds or less.

Email me if what I am pointing you to is not clear. I'll explain what I am attempting to share.

"Start, I'm thinking you are 'Biblically crazy' "

This quote, above, from a nationally recognized journalist that is deeply disturbed / shaken / troubled / moved by my stand at the Sudan Embassy.

"Start, I'm thinking you are
'Biblically crazy' "

"LOVING" IS THE "SOLUTION" FOR THE HEART


Breathing is the solution
for the lungs.

Eating is the solution
for the stomach.

"LOVING" IS THE "SOLUTION"
FOR THE HEART
Jesus was dying to teach us simply this.

"LUSTING" IS THE "SOLUTION" FOR THE FLESH

Breathing is the solution
for the lungs.

Eating is the solution
for the stomach.

"LUSTING" IS THE "SOLUTION"
FOR THE FLESH
The Hell Jesus died to "Save" us from.

KNOWLEDGE HAS BECOME A NARCOTIC

In June one Sunday was Embassy "Open House" for the larger Embassies like Greece, Ireland....

The sidewalks were crowded with gawkers. My march with huge signs was virtually "invisible" to the walkers or line-standers just inches from me. One lady, obviously quite "educated" did notice me as one might notice a bush, and commented to her companion:

"Oh yes, Darfur. Horrible. I'm reading a book on it." It was evident from her comment that this "reading a book on it" would be the end of her engagement with Darfur. She would be fulfilled in every way with this act (non-act).

It should, of course, be the reverse.

Knowledge should be responsibility,
the spur to action.

But some terrible perversion has happened.
Now, Knowledge is License,
Exoneration, Dispensation.
I Know, therefore I have Acted.

Now we waste away, strung out on
books, radio and TV "news,"
OPIATE of the people.

The "Prodigal" father does NOT go after his son.

Ok, imagine, God forbid, that a world-wide plague of unimaginable viciousness is raging and ravaging the world. You are an unknown, uncredentialed researcher and have just developed a vaccination / cure. Do you feel superior? YOU FEEL OBLIGATED.

I feel obligated.

Jesus felt obligated. Yet, the Prodigal Father did not chase after his son. Jesus did not chase after the Rich Young Man.

Jesus can not have been careless in these points. Clearly he taught that we are to become the cure and to make it available.

BUT WE ARE NOT TO
CHASE AFTER THE PATIENTS,
AS THIS WILL PROLONG
THE PERIOD OF TIME
IT TAKES FOR THEM TO
"RECOGNIZE" AND SEEK
THE "CURE."

My biological father, a brilliant "cure" in his own right, knew and practiced this excruciating self-restraint. I am being forced by "failure" to try to learn and practice this wisdom.

What are you living for? It is your bottom line. Happy?

You are, you ARE living for SOMETHING(S). Right? Right.

Probably, so far it is some combination of:
  • Safety
  • Family "expectations"
  • "Love"
  • Pleasure / comfort....

What did Jesus "Live" for?

  • The least of these his "family"
  • You
  • Me
  • Heaven on earth

You and Jesus are
both Dying for something.
Are you happy with your choice?
Jesus was.

LOVE IS MEASURED BY HOW MUCH YOU HAVE LEFT

LOVE IS MEASURED
BY HOW MUCH
YOU HAVE LEFT

Any questions?

"Life is as good as the good that you spend it on." Start Loving

Hmmm. An almost perfect synopsis of all that I've learned:

"Life is as good as the good that you spend it on." Start Loving

I know of no great life in history or fiction that is in contridiction to this. Do you?

FLESH PEDDLING

You know, part of me very much does not like facing such realities as:

FLESH PEDDLING IS CENTRAL TO OUR MAINSTREAM ROLES WITHIN THIS CULTURE. WE SELL OUR CHILDREN INTO BONDAGE "FOR THEIR OWN GOOD."

But, it is the truth. God Save us.

Life is a process. Peace, a "state" is Death & Illusion

A rock has peace. Is that what we want?

'My Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you.' Jesus[Jesus] came not to give the peace of the world which is only that we don't bother each other. [Jesus] came to give the Peace of heart which comes from loving - from doing good to others." Teresa of Calcutta

"Our Father ... Deliver us [ALL to PeaceMAKING]

I think this may be it!

Our Father...
Lead us not to "ME,"
But Deliver us [ALL to Militant PeaceMAKING]

Semantics? Wordsmithing?

We've got to get this right.
Global Salviation is at stake.

Massive Western Fetish for Health / Pulse is Sin

"Nothing is so tempting as evil in the guise of virtue," Dr. Martin Luther King.

Life, our greats throughout history are the opposite! We in our finest moments are the opposite! Not pulse!!! Not flesh!!! "WE!" From my Soul in Solidarity Serving!

Only Militant PeaceMAKING can eliminate Hate

Hmm. Dr. King was incorrect in saying, "Only love [can eliminate hate.]" It is not that easy. Maybe Dr. King meant Militant Loving, but we need to be specific. I'm trying to learn the words that are less likely to enable the HYPOCRISY that we are so tenacious in pursuing.

Only Militant PeaceMAKING can eliminate hate.

Only PeaceMAKING is Peace

'My Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you.' Jesus

[Jesus] came not to give the peace of the world which is only that we don't bother each other. [Jesus] came to give the Peace of heart which comes from loving - from doing good to others." Teresa of Calcutta

Heaven is PeaceMAKING

'My Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you.' Jesus

[Jesus] came not to give the peace of the world which is only that we don't bother each other. [Jesus] came to give the Peace of heart which comes from loving - from doing good to others." Teresa of Calcutta

"Right to Life" is usually a sin against Our Father - Spirit

Was Jesus focus "Pulse?"

Jesus focus was "Life," "Spirit!"

PEACEMAKERS MUST MAKE PEACEMAKERS

PeaceMakers make Peace, right? WRONG!!!!!!!!

PeaceMAKERS make PEACEMAKERS!!!! Think of:

  • Gandhi
  • King
  • Jesus
  • Teresa....

Note: Moneymakers do not make money! They build organizations or take other ACTION and money is the RESULT.

MONEY IS A RESULT. MoneyMAKING is the ACTION!

PEACE IS A RESULT. PeaceMAKING is the ACTION!

HYPOCRISY. Almost ALL OF US, all the time?

HYPOCRISY. This word has has little use for me in the last 30 years. It just has not registered, relative to myself, or relative to the being of others.

HYPOCRISY meant very much to me in my late teens! What happened??!?!

I lost my Vision.

Now, as I try to recapture that vision that I had as a youngster, I begin again to see that virtually all of us are consummate HYPOCRITES!

"Our Father... Deliver us [ALL to Heaven]..."

USCCB - NAB - John 14 "12 Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these..."

"Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us to evil." I don't think this captures what Jesus was getting at.

"Lead us not into temptation..." is OK, however "Deliver us from evil..." SAYS THE SAME THING!

We need to know where Our Father wants us to lead ourselves and others. I think this is close:

"Our Father... Deliver us [ALL to Heaven]..."

YOUR FUTURE: FOR "THE LEAST OF THESE" WHAT WOULD IT BE?

USCCB - NAB - Matthew 25 "45 He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for ONE of these least ones, you did not do for me. 46 And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life." This is the whole deal of Jesus teachings. "[Everything] depends on each man's efforts and striving to make people see that life is given, not for oneself personally, but for the fulfillment of the Father's will, which alone saves from death and gives life." The Gospel in Brief.

Punishment? NO! Jesus is not about that. Sin [error] / Divorce from Our Father / Divorce from Love-Life-Truth? YES!!! Jesus died to tell us about this; about NATURAL CONSEQUENCES!

Unless you work for Doctors Without Borders or the like then probably 99.9% of the people you've ever met or heard about... we all RELIGIOUSLY VIOLATE THIS (Jesus' exhortations above.)

There are three issues in considering our return to Love / Life / Truth - Our Father:
  1. Type of Occupation: Tanning Salon, Gated Community Development, Video Games are examples of occupations that are extremely unlikely to be LARGELY for the "least of these."
  2. Clientele: We are the rich man that neglected Lazarus (Luke 16 19-31). Can you face what I could not? We are a society of Prostitutes, Pimps and Narcotic Pushers. We cannot Save ourselves or others by selling "Narcotics" (addictions to stuff, superiority, and institutions) to materially rich folks. Can we.
  3. How much Love: "It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving." Teresa of Calcutta. What we are dying for is Models of Life / Loving / Militant Brotherliness / being Christian.

QUALITY or QUANTITY of LIFE. You WILL choose.

"A [person] is not equipped to live until s/he knows what s/he would die for." ML King

"Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, 20 take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 21 26 What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? Or what can one give in exchange for his life?" USCCB - NAB - Matthew 16
