“What Are We Truthfully Killing?…”

quill-1Here are a few that come immediately to mind: One Another; Our Thoughts; Our History; Our Beliefs; Our Humanity; Our Purpose; Our Natural World, and Our Stories.

You may ask me why I even ask such a question that has so many distinctive reasons for but even one entry on my list. I do this because whether we know it or not, we each submit to the ultimate carnage.

elephantI have an example; simple yet so complex. It takes place in the Serengeti; an ecosystem in the geographical region in Africa located north of Tanzania that is 12,000 square miles. I bring you here for the elephants; a Keystone Species to the Serengeti. Keystone is a word that means foundation.

Elephants on the Serengeti eat 350 pounds of food a day. If elephants did not drop their digested foodstuff there would be no fertilization for the grasslands to grow. If that were to happen, it would change and ultimately destroy the Serengeti and all its inhabitants as we know it today.

I conclude from this that all FOUNDATIONS on our Earth matter! So I ask again: “What Are We Truthfully Killing?”  

“FAITH & BELIEF…”

608-01089371FAITH THE WORD: Trust, Conviction, Devotion and Dedication.

BELIEF THE WORD: Confidence, Certainty, Credence and Principle.

WORDS only but shape-shifter words we use to make our case for… Well for whatever WE want others to dedicate THEIR lives to: an observable reality endured throughout humankind’s history.

SO, like grape vines, we entangle Faith and Belief and await their grapes to be the full-bodied wines of our intent.

WINEMAKING in barrels of Faith and/or Belief can have a profound effect on humankind so select your grapes carefully.

“THERE CAN NEVER BE A YESTERDAY…”

typewriter_legswtypewriter_sample_img_2So, my Dear Readers, you may wish to counter my hypothesis “There Can Never Be a Yesterday” by trusting in the past. Yet, wasn’t it just a moment ago that what each of us experienced became our yesterday? Did you, in that moment, remember how it felt or tasted or what it taught?

Maybe we humankind, like the lyrics in the Beatles song “Yesterday” must believe in our days gone by.

And, YES, the past embraces where we’ve been and tomorrow holds the hope of where we’re going. But existence itself can never be more than this moment.

For example: At the time I post this blog MY moment will be in yesterday’s memory. Yours, however, will be in the moment you read it. See what I mean?

“PLACE: THE ETHER OF SOULS…”

I don’t know why the heavens came to mind this morning that caused me to imagine a place known as: “The Ether of Souls.” I believe that all souls live in an afterlife place; but just this morning I wondered how can that be?

Might it be a place where each religion has a different soul-place separated by system of belief? Or perhaps by color or where you were born or who you were born to? Maybe dictated by your good or evil deeds on earth? Or how about gender or crippled by disease? What if all the souls who depart choose what they know instead of what could be learned?

Well, if our souls were to make the choices mentioned above, we might just as well leave them buried with their body here on earth. But God asks that the soul of every living thing remain with Him after their work here on earth is done. I just cannot imagine that God separates any of us here on earth or in His Ether of Souls!
