By the good Book we learn, but by way of experience
we know, and knowing is so much better than believing,
for the sacred root of trust grows from confidence in the Lord,
and the deeper we trust, the more our faith strengthens.
Blind faith means: giving up the right to choose.
We were born to question, but only solutions build trust.
Once upon a Time, God spoke to men and women directly.
These human beings wrote down what God said to them.
After a few centuries, a select group of men gathered
a great many of these writings together, and decided
they had enough to make a Book of Books. After judging
some of the stories unfit, they put the remaining
books in an order befitting The Story, and called
the chosen writings scripture. Then they said,
“No words shall be added or taken away from The Bible.”
I surmise, from that day forward,
God ceased to speak to Man.
Or nowadays, if He does get vocal,
and someone jots down His words,
no one else will believe them,
and scripture it shall never be.
The breath of God recognizes Itself
in the first cry of every newborn babe.
Beautiful is – just a smattering of Time’s smearing lines –
over, above, and on through the canvas full of stars in which
we live and have our being; thanks be to the Radiant Christ within.
To feel whole, accepted, and at home with one’s self,
with the world, and with Christ – is to feel as if the circle
is finally complete, and one has found the center.
But one is not alone, no. One is in good company!
Freewill would mean nothing at all – were it not
for a sacred and sanctified rebellious inner nature;
a comical character we all know and love –
that endearing and persistent human spirit.
Thank you, Lord! Oh, thank you much!

<- Set me free from time to time ->
Keep me hanging by a thread,
like a thought inside your head.
Imagine me as I was made
in your image where I’m saved
Only sinners can be saved.
Christ died on the cross for the wood!
For all that is earthly and natural; for all His Mother stood for!
† Ah, the wood! The Blessed Tree that bore The Cross †
Sacrificed for Jesus’ sake!
Oh, yes, the bloody wood! The wood that withstood
the weight of the world as it came bearing down
on the Soul of Christ → Nature’s finest Son of God!
For my part, I believe we each deserve the right to come to our own conclusions, based on our own true experiences.
I’m not sure there is a huge gap between what we see and define
as the physical world, as opposed to the spiritual realm. When
we get down to the real nitty-gritty at the subatomic level, things
get fuzzy. Wave or particle? Dream or reality? It is relative
to the observer’s point of view and the speed at which they traverse
the Universe, compared to the speed of the object undergoing
observation, or in other words, the reflective matter at hand.
Carl Jung wished to save Christianity by proving its vital existence
as a living myth, with a Savior for Mankind who makes History today.
It is not only an age-old story, it is a Truth that He walks amongst
us today. Jesus Christ is pertinent today! He stands for The Truth,
whether it comes from scientists, or artists, or any other vocation.
The Beginning: According To Uncle Tree
Instincts come to us before we achieve consciousness of ourselves.
Instincts are inborn. Self-awareness is of an emerging quality.
Adam and Eve were not conscious of themselves, at first.
That is what the author of Genesis was referring to, in my opinion.
They did not know anything until they received the blessings
of knowledge literally held in the fruit – the apple was
an entheogenic substance, and it raised the consciousness of Eve,
and then Adam, from the muck and mire of the young Earth,
allowing the seed in the clay to flower – the first of its kind.

It is as if we must fight fire with fire,
