Distraction sought after.

I look for distraction to occupy my time. Time I have, to afford thoughts of my situation in reality. When distraction seems preferable to facing up to the facts on the ground. Distraction seems attractive.

Distraction and Excellence. Connecting to Reality.

Connecting to reality, how is my pursuit of excellence confused by distraction that warps my sense of reality?

There is any number of means to have contact with those I have a connection with. Contact is the operative verb.

I am distracted by the many "goings on" that I am afforded a connection to, because of the latest communications technology. Information overload... you only overload a system when you expose it to more then it was designed to handle.

When you understand the system is designed for distraction you also realize the system is not built for excellence. I mean when you want to connect to reality.

Reality is not "our" perception. It never can be. It is His and He is the author of His plan for us. Who will you trust.

Excellence.

How do we define Excellence? Is it being the best at what ever we choose to commit our time and attention to? An unlimited definition of excellence would allow me to define my commitment to "Pumkin Chunkin" an excellent accomplishment if I achieved a world distance record. What about the best swindler, should he be proud?

Distraction meant to occupy.

Distract and occupy. Decieve and destroy.

Flow... a current of data.


Tumultuous in its energy, the flow of truth and lies mixed up to give veracity to the current of deception, has its effect. The discerner of spirits will fall back to the fundamentals and embrace the Lover of their Soul. Peace in the storm, do you see the signs?

Though turmoil is all about and I am flummoxed on every side, the Rock of my Salvation is solid ground. I stand in His Grace. He knows me. Amen.

Change is the constant, continuity is not a given.

Continuity - Noun: 1. The unbroken and consistent existence or operation of something over a period of time.  2. A state of stability and the absence of disruption. Yeah right.

Continuity is full of disruption. Stability? All is sinking sand. A state of stability is the only place continuity can be studied. From my perspective "continuity" is neither unbroken or consistent. It is a flow of cause and effect that can only be understood from the stability of a perspective that sees all as it happens. Tap into His view and all the changes start to make sense.

It's Hard to Tell.

It comes at you from every direction. Information.  It has many forms, emails, tweets, advertisements online and broadcast... Okay, it's easy to tell the source of some of the crap you are exposed to. But the internet is an exquisite tool of communication and it's the best way to pretend you are something you are not. Just spend sometime on Facebook. Technology allows you to fabricate a virtual you, that isn't... you.

Where do we go from here?

Sunday, October 16, 2011

Source.

from Old.French. sourse "a rising, beginning, fountainhead of a river or stream," fem. noun taken from pp. of sourdre "to rise,spring up," from L. surgere "to rise" (see surge). Meaning"written work (later also a person) supplying information or evidence" 

There are only two sources. A source of truth and a source of lies. Truth is simple and easily understood. Complication comes from the father of lies and is meant to confuse.

Swept along.

Circumstance, it is a sea of turmoil. We all swim in it. We are swept along and most perceive not the flow. Flow? It is the current that inhabits the sum of every decision that those with choice make. Descisions breaks the bonds of determinism. But freedom to choose does not guarantee justice. Only the one who is everywhere, and sees all as it happens, can be the arbitrator of justice, who has already declared from the beginning, follow me!

Humility, the first step of a wise man.

We absorb truth from our surroundings if we understand that Wisdom, insight, understanding and knowledge... Are defined by a humble realization that it is not within ourselves to fully comprehend.

Reality?

Rejoice in the dynamic circumstance of your reality. For so intertwined is my reality with yours we cannot define reality but as "ours".

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Rejoice.

Definition of REJOICE

transitive verb

Joy comes in the morning?? Whaaa.

R.O.I. A Kingdom Principle.

Return on investment.

Multiplication is the expectation.

Matthew 25:14-30

14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them.

15 To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.

16 The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more.

17 So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more.

18 But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.

19 “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.

20 The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’

21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

22 “The man with two bags of gold also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.’

23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

24 “Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed.

25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’

26 “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed?

27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.

28 “‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags.

29 For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

What are we to make of this?

Doldrums?

In seamen's speech the zone is referred as the "doldrums" because of it's erratic weather patterns with stagnant calms and sporatic violent thunderstorms. (Wikipedia)

Some may eqivocate the idea of an existence of turmoil. They reference their own experience and say "It's been smooth sailing". If this is the case, I would say you are no threat to the enemy of your soul and he has you where he wants you.

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Existence? A sea of turmoil.

tur·moil –noun 1.a state of great commotion, confusion, or disturbance; tumult; agitation; disquiet: mental turmoil caused by difficult decisions.

We exist in a sea of turmoil. Why? Because our existence is flummoxed by the enemy of our soul.

No amount of insight, anticipation and organization can overcome the turmoil the enemy is able to produce from his lies and deceptions.

What are we to do? Trust in our own understanding or trust in the Lover of our soul with all our heart?

Fecundity, Foibles, and flummoxed turmoil? All can be overcome by Grace.

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Fecundity, Foibles, Grace!

Curious words, the depth of meaning should be plumbed.

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Fecundity. Foibles?

We reproduce what we are. That's fecundity. Foibles? They are the reason for what we reproduce.

An acknowledgement of our foibles is the first step in the process that creates a humble man. Humility is the first step a wise man takes. He concludes, "it is not within me to overcome my foibles".

The creature is not independent of the Creator.

Identity, Self conception, interpretation, unique perspective.

Patterns of behavior are a result of who we perceive ourselves to be, our identity. Our conception of self is derived from how we interpret our unique perspective that exists in the now but...

A natural man, yes I am, that broke free from the "cycle" of deception. Ill equipped to face the challenge of condemnation or exaltation, how do I train up a son in the way that he should go.

The truth shall set you free!

Deception is the norm. Make believe is entertainment's offering of "distraction" to all our perspectives. How can I discern the truth in what I perceive?

Conception: an abstract or general idea inferred or derived from specific instances.

Self conception: who you think you are derived from past instances that formed an identity.

What is a "fact"? Is it a statement of action or an observance of state? The statement, "The earth is third rock from the sun" is true for now. So is a "fact" something that is an observed truth at a given moment? Or is "Observed State" a recognition of the fact of determinism?

Is our interpretation of our unique perspective a reliable foundation to base all our choices and decisions?



Do we have a clear understanding of how, what we decide, will propagate forward?


Do we have it in our capacity to comprehend reality's nature and the influence our free will has on the circumstance made available to others that experience that influence?


The answer to these questions make me think, "Oh crap!".

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

One day exists in the "Now" of God's presence. What is "Now"?

It is the dynamic interaction of all that exists. Reality? Incomprehensible!

We see a fraction and can only comprehend the infinitesimal and in our pride we proclaim understanding.

The question is, "Do we understand how lost we are?"

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Fecundity? Such a curious word with many meanings.

Fecundity? Let me explain what I mean. Each of us is not able to escape our Fecundity. We propagate what we are, and it is the evidence that either condemns or becomes the first step in a process of justification, sanctification and glorification.

Adoption allows one to escape the facts our choices have created. Adoption is the grafting into the stock that builds instead of destroys. Grace bids all. The humble say yes. Their challenge is allowing God to show them the way. Humility is the first step a wise man will make.

Cycles create the illusion of repeatability.

Cycles are all around us. Clock time, the spin of the earth, the revolution around the sun, it all makes us think we've done this before, we've been here before. Not!

In reality, every moment is unique because your relationship with the continuum is constantly changing.

When the decision is made it becomes an unalterable fact, no redo! The facts of your past, the enemy will use to condemn you. You are without excuse. The enemy of your soul is hoping you'll believe that you have an opportunity to make things right tomorrow. But Now is all there is.

Today is the day of salvation. Choice is all you have to break the cycle that has you trapped. Today say "Yes" to the lover of your soul and He will give you rest.

Fecundity?

Each of us live in the now. The Now is where we make our choices. Choices have ramifications.


Choices. The distraction is pride.

Memory and reason are the foundation of an observer's ability to choose. It presupposses a comprehension of tensed facts created by previous choices. The truth condemns and choice proves to be my down fall. Why? I was not designed to rely only on my memory.

Two things make it more complicated. The accuser,  and the tense facts that "I" created. The result is condemnation.

It seems my choice alone is unable to foresee and comprehend the ramification of its effect on the continuum. Thus the destructive result.

Fecundity has its foundation in the Now. As I trust in the Lord and not my own understanding, He directs my path to fruitfulness.

Cause and Effect (As in "Swept along in the Now")

Cause and effect creates a flow within an inertial frame. Have you ever felt like you were in a rut? This flow tends to take the same path if free will does not exert a choice. Choice is hidden by a lie that presents unworthiness and concludes condemnation. And rightly so if we accept the flow.

Hope presents her promise and says, “you choose” The choice is simple but most difficult.  We can stay in the flow and trust in our own understanding or we can choose to trust the lover of our soul and begin to see who He created us to be. The truth sets us free as we trust in the Lord with all our hearts.

Cause and effect appeals to self interest.  There the tension is manifest. The enemy clouds the truth that self interest is ultimately fulfilled in giving.

Cause and effect if left alone ultimately will result in degradation, the second law. Life can overcome that degradation by accepting the truth that Hope offers. Choose the author of life and be an overcomer.

Have you ever thought, I just wish someone would tell me what do do? Have you ever wished someone would show you the way you should go?

“I am the way, the truth and the light”
                                               Jesus Christ

Most likely you’ve believed, as I did, that you have it within you to succeed. The problem is what you define as success.

Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
~ George Santayana ~

Remember the past? Each of us has a history. We reminisce with those we shared the past with. Remember when, we say. Progress is not found there.

Our history viewed with clarity, reveals the struggle. A struggle that gives us insight.  The insight brings us to the realization that it is not within us to progress.

Come to an end of yourself. Humility is the fertile ground of a teachable heart. Allow the Lover of your soul to blast the light of truth into the darkness of your history to reveal the plan He has had for you from the beginning. He has one goal, to share himself with you.

Patterns of behavior.

Identity, Self conception, interpretation, unique perspective.

Patterns of behavior are a result of who we perceive ourselves to be, our identity. Our conception of self is derived from how we interpret our unique perspective which exists in the now, but it also is greatly effected by our remembered history. Memory does not serve us well.

Patterns of behavior are evident in the cycles we experience in the now. Free will gives us the potential to break free of the pattern and experience the cycle with new perspective. Are you going to trust your interpretation?

Patterns of behavior.

Identity, Self conception, interpretation, unique perspective.

Patterns of behavior are a result of who we perceive ourselves to be, our sense of identity. Our conception of self is derived from how we interpret our unique perspective that exists in the now but choice gives us the ability to break patterns of behavior.

Stop relying on your memory and reason alone. Embrace the Lover of your soul's guidance. Discover who He created you to be and be an overcomer of distractive habits.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Reality's Nature?

Is our interpretation of our unique perspective a reliable foundation to base all our choices and decisions?

Do we have a clear understanding of how, what we decide, will propagate forward?

Do we have it in our capacity to comprehend reality's nature and the influence our free will has on the circumstance made available to others that experience that influence?

The answer to these questions make me think, "Oh crap!".

Perspective.

The state of one's ideas, the facts known to one, etc., having a meaningful interrelationship:

a. The relationship of aspects of a subject to each other and to a whole: 
b. Subjective evaluation of relative significance; a point of view:
c. The ability to perceive things in their actual interrelations or comparative importance:

perspective: (noun) a) A specific point of view in understanding or judging things or events, especially one that shows them in their true relations to one another; b) the ability to see things in a true relationship. - Webster's Dictionary

We all have "our" perspective.

There are no two of us with the same perspective. I am unique and so is my perspective.

Insight? It starts with my perspective. Understanding? It starts with my perspective. But wisdom is not acquired in my perspective.

Then where?

Strength of Character.

Not discovered in the solitude of study, but in the day to day trials of the familiar. Not in situations of strength but in vulnerability and humility is character's strength revealed.

Not just "Present" but "Awake"!

My "present" location is in the "Now". Here I am. This "here" is in a constant state of change as the interaction of mass and energy changes and transforms my now.

My "now", how to describe it?

Cycles of perceived repeatability. This is why we think "today was just like all the others". We lose sight of he fact that we are not able to understand the moment in the infinite complexity of Now. Cycles make us think "I have been here before". NOT!

If I know the "Here and Now" is where I am "present" and it is unique, then I know I can't trust in my own understanding for my current circumstance, then I will be much more likely to pay attention to the lover of my soul and seek His insight as to the way I should walk.

Are you awake?

There are no coincidences.

Continuity is an attribute of God.

If He holds all things together by the power of His word. Hebrews 1:3 KJV, then He choreographs all things that happen.

To hold all things together, does not mean He approves all things that happen. What ever your choice is, He takes what you have given Him by your choices, and makes a plan to bring "Beauty from Ashes" Isaiah 61:1-3 (King James Version)

There is a continuity to our life. Your history provides insight to the "Now" of where you are at.

Only God understands your "Now" in it's continuity with the past. He has left clues all along the way. Want to understand how you got to where you are at? Find the clues.

Saturday, April 2, 2011

Choices we make, as we are swept along. So why are we going in circles?

We can't stop making choices. Most of our choices we are oblivious to. We make them with little thought and they sweep us along a familiar path, mostly in circles. Ever feel that way,  doing the same old thing over and over again and you wonder why things aren't different?

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Life is pointless without God. With God,... what's the point?

Life is pointless without God. I don't have a problem with that. Just read Ecclesiastes, but it falls short in telling me... With God, what's the point?

Okay, I am here in the now, where God is. I understand now is what exists and it is where I make all my choices and decisions. That my choices are unalterable once made. I understand that I am unable to comprehend the infinite complexity of Now and my relationship to it, here where I am.

So what's the point? With God I have the one who is everywhere and therefore knows everything that is happening. As my counsellor He Knows exactly how I should respond in any given situation I might find myself because He is able to anticipate every possible contingency I might be faced with in the now of my existence. So that in that very hour I will be given what to say.

So when you hear "pay attention" I pray you will be awake and not distracted.

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Are you awake or asleep?

Check out time 1:38... Rodney you are the man.

God's Now is not limited to my "Here"

I exist in the "Here and Now". If I trust in what my 5 senses tell me I am trusting in the limited perspective my 5 senses provide.

My "Here" in the "Now" limits my acquisition of information because there is a delay between the event and my perception of the event. God doesn't have that problem. He experiences every event as it happens. He is connected to every "Here" in the "Now" without delay.

God's "Here and Now" Is where we exist. "Now" is where we reside in our uniqueness of "here"

Are we awake to His presence in our "Here"?

Awake? In the now of my five senses or the now of God's presence?

Proverbs 3:5-6 (King James Version)

 5. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
 6. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
---------

Corinthians 6:2 (King James Version)

For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Sunday, March 27, 2011

We are all present in the "Here and Now"

You have no choice, you cannot be anywhere other then the "Here and Now." "Now" is the same for everybody except God. "Here" is unique for each of us.

I exist in a uniqueness of presence and I can relate to others and their presence in my "Now". Their "Now" is my "Now" because we all exist in the Synchronicity of Now.

I have no choice to be Here and Now. Yet Here and Now is filled with choices. Where do these choices come from? Are we aware of the multitude of decisions we make every day? You cannot be aware if you are not awake.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Are you present? I am present, Here and Now.

My inertial frame is always present in my now. My now is limited to a horizon of relationship that is restricted to what or who is present in my "here". My here and now's horizon has been expanded by technology that allows me to communicate beyond geographic locals and synchronicity becomes evident.

My now is synchronised with everyone else's now because communication extends beyond my "here" and expands my "now".

This expansion of now reveals Synchronization and is proof that the present is all that exists. You are never not present in the now! No matter where you are.

Monday, March 21, 2011

The "Specious Present"?

Others have tried to explain "Now" in terms defined by time. Google "Specious Present" and see what I mean. They think time exists and they talk about duration. They speculate about Specious Present as a temporal equivalent of a sensory datum.

It's not complicated "Now" is where we reside.

I'm "Here" in the "Now".

"Here" is where my memory operates and my reason anticipates. My "here" is limited in the "Now" by the nature of the physical realm and I know very little.

Here you are. Now!, is the time.

When we believe time exists we think that the future is something that gives us the opportunity to put off the need to change. The need to change is presented to us by our current situation and the memory of how we got here. Here is "Here" and it changes according to deterministic laws outside our control, except for our ability to choose "this and not that".

You exist in the "Here and Now". The reality of your existence is brought into focus by your ability to remember how things were different and anticipate change before it happens.

The problem is your insight into the "Now' is limited to your inertial frame and what you can infer from your experience in it.

"Now" is all that exists. "Here", is your position in the now in relation to everything else.

Here is dynamic. You are in a constant state of change. The change is incomprehensible to one restricted by their inertial frame.

Here you are and Now is the time. Tomorrow may never come.

How ever you define "Present" God is in the "Here and Now"

Jehovah Shammah: God is Present... The "present" is the time that is associated with the events perceived directly, not as a recollection of the past (memory) or a speculation of the future (reason). It is often called now.

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Live in His presence! Live in the now.

Presence –noun  1. the state or fact of being present, as with others or in a place.

Jehovah Shammah: God is "Present"

The "present" is the time that is associated with the events perceived directly, not as a recollection of the past (memory) or a speculation of the future (reason). It is often called "NOW".

Moments in the Now!

I had a moment tonight to talk with Hudson (he's 14). He wanted to tell me about a word he had come across that started with "N". He explained if I did a search on Google for "emptiness, wikipedia" that was where he found the word that started with "N".  I asked "you did a search for "emptiness"? He said, "I think that is why I'm lazy, I just think what's the point"?

The word he found was "Nihilism" which means life is without objective meaning. 

Hudson's favourite book of the Bible is Ecclesiastes because it expresses so much of how he feels. 

I tried to remind him that the questions he is asking are important and that God is giving him the answer. Life is pointless without God. With God, what's the point? Then Harrison came in and wanted his DS connected to the wi-fi.

After I tucked Hudson in for the night, I asked God to help me understand what Hudson was struggling with. I googled "emptiness" and began to click on search results. I came across this. A video that answers the question...
WITH GOD, WHAT IS THE POINT? 

Saturday, March 5, 2011

Synchronization? We see through a glass darkly.

Each of us perceive reality from our own perspective. We judge what we perceive with the limited insight that is inherent in our inertial frame. Is that what we should trust in? At best such trust will provide temporal success.

(Temporal: pertaining to or concerned with the present life or this world)

If we understand that all of creation is a symphony that God orchestrates on the fly how foolish we would  be to think we can understand the intricacies of all the relationships between everyone we will ever meet and the ongoing choreography we are apart of.

His plan for you? Don't trust in your own understanding.

Clues. They are all around.

The alone time, you know when you are by yourself. It doesn't matter your situation. Rich man or poor man, there are clues everywhere. Technology?, we are interconnected big time. But we see through a less then perfect communication.

The One who sees clearly, gives all of us clues.  They are right in front of you. Do you see? Knowledge of good and evil, do we make excuses and accept our complicence as the excuse?

Or do we think about our thoughts and become aware of the battle for our mind? Well, probably not. We just don't question enough.

Wake up, see the evidence all around, start asking the honest questions. Read he Bible, it will start to speak out to you. Listen to the voice of His Word

Faith, Hope and Love, He offers this to those who will believe what He did on the cross is sufficient.

That is the easy part.

If you are called, yeah, we all are. If you respond "here I am" then God will choose to lead you in the way, then the question is... will you be faithful? Will He be Lord of the real you.

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Synchronization is not planned, it is choreographed. A symphony. 2

A symphony! All of it is connected. Synchronization? Not of exact copies walking in "lockstep", very impressive, but synchronization in diversity, a multitude of expressions, revealing His glory.

He holds it all together, every choice we make, he desires to show us His commitment to our highest good. He is hopeful, he is determined to show us the way. Are we willing to listen to the the one who choreographs the universe?

JEHOVAH SHAMMAH.

Current events in North Africa and the Middle East have caused me some concern. What to do when the economic upheaval arrives here.

10:45 PM   I noticed my son Harrison’s reading light on in his room. Upon investigating, he was writing something. I asked, "what are you doing"? He explained, “I wasn’t able to sleep so I thought maybe God wanted to tell me something so I prayed, God if you want to tell me something that it might be in the scripture, so then I opened my bible and it was Jer. 17 and I started reading. The verses 5-10 really stood out to me and I thought it was important, so I'm writing it down".

Jeremiah 17:5-10
5 This is what the LORD says:
  “Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
  who draws strength from mere flesh
  and whose heart turns away from the LORD.
6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
  they will not see prosperity when it comes.
They will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
  in a salt land where no one lives.
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
  whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
  that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
  its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
  and never fails to bear fruit.”
9 The heart is deceitful above all things
  and beyond cure.
  Who can understand it?
10 “I the LORD search the heart
  and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
  according to what their deeds deserve.”

Momentum, the moment and the Bigger picture.

Is there anything more important then the moment? It is where we exist. It is where we experience the momentum. It is where we remember the past and anticipate the future. It is where we understand our existence and where we make our choices.

If we trust in our own understanding we will most likely see the momentum as a positive thing, something to participate in, something to be proud of. If we question our understanding, if we realize our perspective falls short, then we are finally in a place to see the Bigger picture.

Lockstep Marching, very impressive.

Monday, February 14, 2011

Momentum! Sweeps us along.

Impetus of a nonphysical process, such as an idea or a course of event.
An idea effecting a course of events. Unity, principle, common goals, who can argue against such? Lockstep marching, very impressive.

Unified Field Theory. (I googled it.)

"A theory of everything (TOE) is a "putative" theory of theoretical physics that fully explains and links together all known physical phenomena, and predicts the outcome of any experiment that could be carried out in principle."

The science of Physics stands on experimentation and the idea of repeatability.  Repeatability is a myth, held on to by those who believe that time exists and that it is not a figment of their consciousness. Everything is connected and synchronized. To understand the quantum you have to see all as one, connected and synchronized. 

A "A theory of everything" will explain human nature.

The Tower of Babel

What??? How does the Tower of Babel relate to lockstep marching.

Man's potential is illustrated in the Tower of Babel. When we work together we are able to do impressive things. Pride makes us believe that our potential is an intrinsic attribute inherent in us alone. Yet the truth is something different.

God guides, man responds, and is blessed. Pride says, "oh, now I understand". Man takes the lesson and thinks he knows how to apply it. He labels it. Packages it. And tries to convince everyone he has the answer. This is where the idea of "Biblical Principles" comes from. This is why the "Self Help Christianity" industry exists.

Lockstep Marching? Stay tuned.

Lockstep

"Lockstep marching or simply lockstep refers to marching, in the USA, in a very close single file in such a way that the leg of each person in the file moves in the same way and at the same time as the corresponding leg of the person immediately in front of him, so that their legs stay very close all the time."...

Synchronization is not planned, it is choreographed. A symphony.

The now synchronized, is a symphony created on the fly, by what He is provided with.  Our choices give Him the basis of His arrangement which He takes to reflect His personality and His composition stays true.   A  Symphony of hope meant to set us free from the lies and distraction of the enemy of our souls. Who are you? Listen to the Conductor. Discover your voice that was created to express harmony and dissonance in an ever expanding choreography of creation.

Evidence presented.

As I strap on the ApneaLink monitor and get ready for bed, I am presented with some evidence. What comes to mind is the word "corruption" and the second law of thermodynamics.

The evidence presents itself and the conclusion is obvious. It is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgement.

The tide sweeps us along, you will give an answer to the choices you are making.

The Moment is "Now" recognized.

Now is eternal. Now contains everything that exists. Now is constantly changing. The "moment" is recognized by the observer. It is limited by the inertial frame of the observer and it bears witness to the evidence presented.

The moment can only be made sense of in context to the memory of the observer and their experience of the "Now" they exist in. The moment remembered gives the illusion of time its meaning.

Synchronicity of Now proves its unrepeatability.

Synchronization, purpose and breadcrumbs.

Now is where we exist and have our being. Now is Synchronized with purpose, everything!  Doesn't seem like you have a purpose? Seem like you are lost in a sea of circumstance, confused and ready to give in to the tide?

Remember everything has a purpose. Even your mistakes can be a stepping stone that leads you to the truth that God loves you and has a plan for your life.

Evidence? It's everywhere. Little breadcrumbs synchronized in the now to show you the plan God has for you. Look for them.

Negative Capability Is A Profound Therapy

RICHARD FOREMAN
Playwright & Director; Founder, The Ontological-Hysteric Theater

Mistakes, errors, false starts ― accept them all. The basis of creativity.

My reference point (as a playwright, not a scientist) was Keat's notion of negative capability (from his letters). Being able to exist with lucidity and calm amidst uncertainty, mystery and doubt, without "irritable (and always premature) reaching out" after fact and reason.

This toolkit notion of negative capability is a profound therapy for all manner of ills ― intellectual, psychological, spiritual and political. I reflect it (amplify it) with Emerson's notion that "Art (any intellectual activity?) is (best thought of as but) the path of the creator to his work."

Swept Along 2

There is no stopping it. The cause and effect interaction of mass and energy, that changes and transforms our now, against our will. It seems choice cannot stop it. Change has two results for the observer. Good or bad, build up or destroy. Choice does not stop the change but it can determine a result. Somethings are predetermined by mass and energy's interaction. Somethings are open to choice and the result the choice brings. The creative ability of choice to destroy or build up is what presents each of us with our GIST.

Swept Along.

Determinism sweeps us along. That quality of existence that permeates reality and is only overcome by choice. Determinism, an overwhelming flux in the continuum of what exists. All around cause and effect spits out the facts that are created, and our choices add to the "Sum" of our "Now". Every choice an unalterable fact that we are doomed to reap the results of (I mean that we are not able to escape). The tide never waning, it sweeps us along in a synchronicity of complexity only God understands. Thus we are swept along by change.

The interaction of mass and energy results in a cause and effect, that creates an inertial flow that exerts a tendency to bring about a similar result. Commonly called a "rut"or habit.

Choice trumps determinism. True choice is made evident in the light of truth. It is the power to overcome the inertial flow of your history and to become all that God created you to be. No need to be blown along with every wind of doctrine. Hmm...

Jehovah Shammah: God is "Present"

The "present" is the time that is associated with the events perceived directly, not as a recollection of the past (memory) or a speculation of the future (reason). It is often called now.

Free will.

Free will has no meaning if we don't understand the consequence of our choices.

Satan is a liar. That is the truth I knew as I began my quest to discover what time was.

Truth is simple once discovered. But the quest for truth is nothing but complicated. The father of lies doesn't want us to know the truth.

The simple truth is found in Christ. He reveals creation as it was intended. Complication is the work of the enemy of our soul.

Our choices create tensed facts that build up or destroy. Distraction is meant to blind us to the truth of our choices. Pride keeps us in the fantasy.

Fantasy and Distraction.

You can't define fantasy correctly without using distraction. Fantasy is fundamental distraction that replaces the truth with a pseudo reality that allows you to ignore the consequence or your choice.

Blame, excuse, doubt, fear, fun and pride distraction will use to keep you occupied as the interaction of mass and energy continues to create the tensed facts of the choices you cannot but make.

Gist, Now and Distraction.

So now is here, where you are. The sum of your past, call it Gist, is the place for your next choice. But memory equips you with perspective that helps you see distraction for what it is.

Will you continue to be distracted by story lines of fantasy. They are all around, ready to take up your attention and distract you from the facts that are being created by your choices.

The facts being created by your choices! Unalterable. Choice, the power to build up or destroy. Correct a wise man and he becomes wiser still.

NOW. IS THE "SUM'. The Gist! part 2

The "Gist" of our now is the sum of our past. Our past is a collection of tensed facts that are unalterable. Now presents us with our "Gist" and we make a choice. Now is about choice. In the now choice becomes evident in the information presented to us. We accept or reject the information. There are just two sources available to us for information. One is the truth, the other is lies.

The "Gist" of our now is the sum of our past and the source of information we have put our trust in. Truth and lies, one source is the lover of our soul the other is dedicated to our destruction. Now presents our "Gist", now also presents a choice. It is yours to make. He died for all, yet narrow is the way and few be that find it.

Choices. The distraction.

Choices. The distraction.

Memory and reason are the foundation of an observer's ability to choose. It presupposses a comprehension of tensed facts created by previous choices. The truth condemns and choice proves to be my down fall. Why? I was not designed to rely only on my memory and ability to reason.

Two things make it more complicated. The accuser,  and the tense facts that I created.

It seems I am unable to foresee and comprehend the ramification of my choice and it's effect on the continuum.

"Now" is where I become.

Now is where I am. Where I am changes and that change is beyond my control, mostly. Try to stop the moment from passing by. Can you? It is just like your choices. Can you stop making choices? Try it...

See what I mean, you've just experienced the determinism created by the interaction of mass and energy.

Tensed facts are created in the the continuum of reality that I call "Now". In their creation they become unalterable. They are created by the temporal, dynamic cause and effect interaction of mass and energy.

The observer, you and me, are confronted by reason and memory. We remember the way things were and we anticipate how things could be. I say "could" because memory and reason give us the ability to make a choice. This, not that. It is the power to over-ride the determinism of the continuum.

All of us are becoming... what? It's up to us to choose. We can't stop making choices but we can decide what we will choose.

We can't stop making choices but our choices determine who we become. The dynamic cause and effect interaction of mass and energy can be overcome by choice. Our choices determine our destiny... or do they?
