“WHAT IF…”

WHAT IF Earths-Inner-Core-has-an-Inner-Core-of-its-Own-700x325GOD IS & SATAN IS?

This is not a religious question that I ask because each of us knows our faith in countless diversity. As well, centuries of wars are still being fought over religion in order to establish which of humankind GOD favors more. So this then leads me to ask: where is Satan and Lucifer, the leader of the fallen angels, in this holocaust? I imagine in good spirits as they observe the limitless human race move violently to declare and/or rescue our essence.

We humankind—at our nativity—receives a gift in the form of free will. This CHOICE allows us to decide on or prefer—and I presume not always reflect on—the impact our transactions may or will have on others. Then there is our own soul to consider: our genuine core. And always there is death and none are given their day or time or reason. So our life story is written in each second that we take a breath without knowing if after that another will follow.

Some say they have seen the after-life and I cannot deny their claims. For what is truth for one is not truth for another. Perhaps that is why we humankind continue to hate what we cannot believe and why wars are fought to force belief on others. We are, after all, human beings searching for truth; but my question is: Whose?

AND ALL THE WHILE GOD AND SATAN WATCH

“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.

“AWAKEN WITHOUT FEAR…”

It’s close to the time when families gather to honor their traditions and their faith. A time for remembering our past: the good and the not-so-good. I was wondering if within the spirit of this season I might somehow find a way to awaken without fear.

Yet, I have reasons to feel anxious because our world is spinning—literally and figuratively.  A shift really that I can neither gauge its length nor its intensity. It is in this sense of place that I find my fear escalating to all the WHAT IFS of life. I cannot trust my used-to-be solutions because they no longer exist. Add to that millions of social media outlets (my blog too) that paint countless genre of mankind’s plight.

Awaken is a word that means: rouse, develop, wake—so herein begins my answer. Like Hansel and Gretel I will first drop white stones to find my way home: Faith, Family, Tradition and Remembering. However, cast off a second time was dreadful for Hansel and Gretel. So I must be careful and drop more than just breadcrumbs to awaken.

“JULY FOURTH – HOPE AND FAITH…” July 4, 1776-July 4, 2012

Hope represents all human emotion whether we wish for it, have it, anticipate it, or dream about it. Faith, well that is altogether a different word because it requires us to trust, believe and commit to faithfulness. Words are never just words! They quantify the depth of belief that exists in the souls of all humanity. I believe hope and faith are the decisive factors that will determine human survival.

Today is INDEPENDENCE DAY (not the movie, which I loved) but the one commonly known in America as Fourth of July: commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 {236 years ago}.

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them…

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter…”

I could forever search Webster’s Dictionary and never craft the freedom words the 1776 Committee of Five gifted to a new America. I remember their words whenever even the least of my freedoms disappear. It’s cumulative you know; the loss of freedom. Ask your sisters and brothers around the world. They’ll tell you.
