Our World
From the Realm of Possibilities:
The Only Thing That Matters in (Romantic) Love
In the perfect world of our own design and making, we love ourselves to the most complete extent, so that, of course, this would be the inevitable and spontaneous outcome. God and Love both claim mighty and magnificent power. Do we dare attempt to harness this mysterious power, as He so encourages, promising that it is our True Inheritance?

People pin their hopes on all sorts of claims. Subscribing to the claims made by God and Love promises power, love, peace, joy and contentment. Hmmh, could this be true? Is a "life of glory" actually possible? How much power actually lies in the Power, Grace, Love, and Praise of God? The answer to these questions, and more?

TESTIMONY: just a little bit of love goes a long, long way.

PRACTICE: Praise and Glorify God for all --- the beginning, middle, and final aspects of your life -- for having a "life experience". Find a moment or moments to love yourself completely and unconditionally -- where you encounter no questions, doubts, or resistance to your being, you, just as you are, just as you always known yourself to be. Just go for it. You must see the bright light of your own life and love that and what that means -- according to God. And we all live according to something, of course. The struggle [which we should make very clear and basic to our generations] -- is not to let others [CANCEL] you, especially those more flawed than yourself. For, who, or what, must destroy, annihilate and eliminate to "BE BEST"? We all know who and what, and what that indicates for the type of danger or peril we might find ourselves.

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECT: As you begin shoveling and peeling away the layer upon layers of BS, you may find that you are a bit more cantankerous and persnickety. This too shall pass --- if you stay on the path of blessing, somehow.
From the Realm of Sybolism:
Freedom Sans Boundaries
Not such a spectacular thing, but a definite reminder of the amazing and ever present power and drive people have towards creativity and ingenuity. Questions that arise: (1) At what, specific critial point does the fact of sheer economic prowess (or lack thereof) begin to overshadow the more superior and significant qualities of one's humanity? Or, (2)at what precise point does the object become greater than and supercedes the being -- the creator of it? (3) What are the precise standards, methods, and intent applied for devaluing human beings and human lives, to the point of genocide, or the condoning of murders by supremacist and terrorist --- who might otherwise be "fine people"? and (4) What is the basis of hate, and what holds it together, sustains it and makes it an enduring feature of human life and existence?

Human beings are designed to make choices, and as shown by the many examples in the Bible, some things are difficult to process as truth, no matter what's said, who says, or how often. RIP Joshua.
