The Mind of God and the Intellect

    Wednesday, January 23, 2013, 7:44 PM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    The shrewed mind can weave its way out of the weeds, by filling its listeners with tons of information, much of which, has little to do with explaining a truth.  It can stealthly dodge with cunning the facts which would reveal what questions asked are seeking. It can create diversions, so convincing, that to the willing believer, will convince them, it is a solid truth. This mind can keep itself, so far from what it fears will expose it, so that although it seems as if it is telling you all there is to know, it will never be responsible enough to admit or accept even a modicum of responsiblity.
     The shrewed mind, can get around any issue, and because it is quicker than many of its followers, it is accepted as being intensely smart.
    Those who know the difference between the Mind of Man, and that of Christ, could never equate, much less define the Mind of Christ, as smart, or shrewed. Those who dont worship the mind of the earth, know how the decievers mind works. It always avoids complete truths. In fact it perfers to dazzle you with half truths, deceptions, sins of ommision, than coming too close to that which will anhiliate it...His TRUTH. 
      Christ is Absolute Truth. The Mind of God emitted Christs light, as the  Truth. As Word of God. And the word of God is Truth. It is Absolute. And within it are the eternal truths. Truths that can be expressed in mans Souls as principles, and virtues. And in a mans character, as principles of value. Both held and stored. These virtues are inspirations of the Soul. Which, when drawn upon by man out of commitment and love for his GOD, become the Godly Character a virtuous man.
    Something no man would call cunning or smart. For the Mind of Christ has no real relationship to that of the Intellect. Its why all the questions in the world, asked by unbelievers will never fulfill them. For the Mind of Christ was not formed, nor does it have a need for defensiveness. Nor is its truths filled with knowledge needed for life on earth. It doesnt have a need to use certain tactics, or prove to itself or to others, it is right, or smart. It fears not!
    The Mind of Christ is LOVES TRUTH..the fulfillment of both Mind and as One, as our Immortal SOUL.

    Be a Man of Good Character

    Tuesday, January 15, 2013, 1:25 PM [Character of the Christ]

    There is a difference in being seen as a character, and being a man OF CHARACTER.

    We see characters on TV everyday. Honey Boo Boo is a character. Should we follow her to find our God?

     There are regular people who play characters in movies and TV. We call these people "stars", we have given these talented men, a name that aligns them to elements that illuminate the darkness of night. Are they themselves really who they claim to be? Are they the same as the characters they play, in their own lives? Are they too people we should follow, because we have named them "stars?"

    A man of good character, is of God. His character is filled with purpose. With virtues he has developed because of his willingness to seek to be in truth, the likness of Christ.

    A character, is not the same as being a person of character. A character is an actor whose personality was formed to fit into the world. It is ones ego, ones mask, the face we show the world.A face that may change, when he goes home and closes the door.

    The difference between a man of good character and the fool is, one needs the worlds attention...the other lives soley in the good character of the Christ.

    What Greater Treasure than the Heart of Christ?

    Saturday, January 12, 2013, 12:41 PM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21

    Why is it we waste so much time, in vain attempts at understanding Christs words?     We waste time in believing we will be judged, when it is we who are doing the judging. Is it not what a man says that tells you what he believes?

     Remember Christ told us, it is not our place to judge another. And those who truly believe in Christs word, know full well, we place more judgement on others, than see if we do the very thing ourselves?

    Judgement on a man, will be no different than the judgement he placed on himself. And it is that judgement, which will be what separates ourselves from Him. Judgement of others, leaves when we choose to change what we see, to decernment. Awareness that man is seeking His perfection, with the time released understanding of his God.  

    All everyman needs to know , and focus on is, where he places his treasure?         

    Do you choose to seek fulfillment with that which is seen as material treasures of the earth? Or are you a man who seeks the virtue of God, as your goal? Are you a man who loves life so, that your heart is open to all who seeks entry? Isnt that too, a Godly goal?

    Or are you a man, who gets his heart tested, to insure its a healthy as it can be. Yet are you that same man, who never tested the health of your hearts capacity to love? Are you more concerned with the beating of that muscle, than working on its full capacity to LOVE!

     Without Christ, we are 100% less, than who we were meant to be. Without the Love of God, we will bring anger to the very people we say we love. Without the treasure of Christ in our heart, we have not yet learned what it is to LOVE. Without Christ, men seek to buy coins to fill their bank accounts with gold. But with Christs love in our heart...we have treasure beyond any price man can afford!!

    How Inspired by Christs Kingdom, is the World?

    Monday, January 7, 2013, 12:36 PM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    Our Government asks us every election, what kind of people do we want to be?

    And for the next few years, the values the earth believed is of importance, becomes the political agenda of the time.

    As individuals, we also ask a similar question? What is the purpose of my life?

    Governments choice of values, can never reflect the values of the whole. Therefore it becomes easy for us to see, they are the values chosen by men, and can be bias, and even at times, against the values given us by God. Yet they are done, with all good intentions, as they progress ,(not aways in the right direction, towards God) but towards what the world believes are the needs of men.

    What we have done, is to allow government to do our work for us. To love ones neighbor, now doesnt need to include our neighbor next door. Nor our parents, or our workers, or our fellow man. We can ignore them, not even know their names, but we are forgiven, because we can vote, in the way we wish to treat them!

     No longer does love thy neighbor, need to be applied from an inner perspective. Or as something that requires a change of character by the individual. And because we have lost that purpose, we can see its results on any politica partisan blog. The government in time of our choosing which values we want written into law. Uses the very tactics no man would, had he truly be a man of value! No man who claims to love his neighbor would stir up such hate, to than say, its all for our common good?

     Somehow we allow ourselves to show the worst part of ourselves, to then say we want the best for our people?  And as these same politicans write laws, to abandon HATE SPEACH, they use the very thing, they want us not to do! 

    What I have come to realizs is, that "winning" an election means is that the winning party in power can now enforce the values they want enforced, down the throat of the losing side!

    And this is done in the name of loving ones neighbor!

    Government does do some good. But because it has the right to enforcement, it can never do in TRUTH the work GOD asks. The difference between the good done on earth, and the good expected by GOD from men to reach Heaven, is never on His part an enforcement of power. The good that is GODS, is given to each man, as his good character. It asks each man to live in truth, the mind and heart of God. Not out of fear, for Christ said, "be not afraid", nor does God urge man by threat of rule of law, but He urges MAN by the good conscious he has given him, so that he may learn Gods LOVE!

    Christs GOOD, cant be a paritisan issue, for that is the duality of man. And that is indeed our biggest clue! God never seeks to separate us, because it is in HIM that we find ourselves whole..

     The all GOOD, is a state of mind, and when we can see from that state, than the TRUTH is indeed SELF EVIDENT! And can be seen as the same, by all!

    Christ never asked for His Kingdom to be built on the earth. If He wanted to be President, He could have established Himself, President of Israel. Israel, like Christ's Conscienceness, is a state of mind, as well as a place on earth.  He wanted His people to reach His state of Mind where there is Peace.. 

    And thats the difference between governments and GOD. No matter how much those on earth want it to express His Kingdom, the earth will always be a place where men  will have dual values, that will always be at odds, of one man or another.

    Christs Character, is alive in certain values and principles, that only men who commit to them, will reach His state of Mind. And they have little to do, with protection of the earth, but all to do with the Soul that unites us to His Heaven.

    When He told us we must love our neighbor, did He tell us to bring it before the Roman Government, so as to put it into law?

    When He spoke of love, did He see (love) as a VALUE? And that when we say we love our neighbor, could He have meant, value him, as we value ourselves?

     How do we today show we value another? Do we  make use of Christs WORD?  Do we know our words intentions? Do they respect others as we respect ourselves? Do we project thankfulness, for all we have in every word we speak? 

    Should we seek to bring His GOOD WORD to a pagan, who seems to be happy in what he believes? Or should we bring it to a pagan, by our good example, more than our words? Wouldnt the  best way to bring Christ into the world, is to live His values, and keep His principles...which validate Him in our every word.

     But in how we live them? How do we apply His word into our lives?

    We must use His words ..when He said He was TRUTH. Do we speak the truth or do we cover the truth, for fear of being rejected? Do we speak the truth to our family, our friends, our lovers? Or do we hide the truth, so that we look better in the eyes of men?

    Love is TRUTH, for without TRUTH, no TRUST can exist. And without TRUST..Love will never be the ROCK UPON WHICH A FOUNDATION BUILT BY GOD CAN EXIST.

    Of God and Government 2

    Sunday, January 6, 2013, 11:14 AM [General]

    Government was created in effect, to move the conscienceness of its people,  by exemplifing its peoples values, towards a common good.
    What if in time, men deminish mans need to express his highest good, as the mark of common good. And instead, government focused more on mans need for commerce, so as to pursue his common good?
     What if, that government no longer saw the need to elevate its people towards virture, but instead, sought to give rights to what was most basic in the nature of man, mans nature as it is?
     And what if, in doing so, many of her people, no longer found a need to become more than they are. No longer found a need for virtue in their culture. No longer felt the need for a God or the symbols of virture, once held in the character of a virtuous man.
    What if, because of the baseness of man now being elevated as a right, values and elements that instill virtue, are now seen as  offensive to some.
    The very elements that were once a part of mans enlightenment, are now rejected, no longer used to move man to a more perfect union. Or to his overall common good.
    What if man has fallen so far in his belief of self-interest, that the very rights given him by the values  onced believed, no longer have its value in todays man of mediocrity. No longer are their thinkers who find ways to elevate the common good. Now we debate and win on debates driven by envy, induced by greed.
    By a people who have lost the skill of common good communication , of higher thought and ideas that take men to the moon, or new creative avenues of a being whose purpose is to seek becoming a man of virture. But who instead, sees government as the instrument to supply his basic needs. As a tool to regulate commerce. Who sees the pursuit of happiness, as nothing more than opening up a business or finding a job they love.
    What happens to these people who once sought to live in virtue? Who saw good as self evident, when not filled with judgmental attitudes, or superstition or the words, you can not! What happened to the individual who sought to do what is right, more than what sees only to satisfy his personal pleasure?
    What has happened is, that what once was Americas ideal goal of elevating man to a place of character based upon his virtues. So that all men would seek to be of good character for the common good. Now finds men offended, by the very values, which once exemplifed the model of his greatest good. What has been lost, is the good character of man which he onced strived towards. And what has replaced it, is mans base nature. Driven and accepted now, as governments purpose, and mans right!
    What we have lost in both a government once driven by men who sought virture, is a people who no longer are inspired to seek the stars.

    Of God and Government

    Saturday, January 5, 2013, 1:40 PM [Character of the Christ]

    The difference between Government and God is... one is composed of men, who wish to control society by  making laws, to improve the common good.

    The other changes men, for their own good. With a GOOD that lives forever!

    Preaching , Teaching, Living

    Sunday, December 30, 2012, 11:33 AM [Character of the Christ]

    I never needed my ego to be fed, I was too focused on making myself worthy in the eyes of God.

    I never felt unworthy of His love, for He told me, all my worth was in Him.

    I never wanted to teach or preach to others, because I found it took time away from my learning how to please He whom I loved above all else.

    I also found too many of those who were preaching, had yet to learn the very lessons they preached.

    I would never ask another not to lie, if I still were lying.

    I would never ask another to help me , when I knew I could do it myself.

    I would never expect more from another , than I was willing to give.

    And I would never assume to preach or teach what I knew Christ had said, He had written in the hearts and minds of His people.

    I always believe in management by example. That it is by our example, our fruits would be known. I never liked those who called all men sinners. I felt it place a guilt on them, which Christ Himself had died for, and was washed away by His blood.

    Much like I dont live in the past, now, I never saw the need to continue making people feel unloved, in sin. When they can glory in the goodness given them by their God!

    Their are people whose vainity would make them need to feel unworthy, for fear they would think too highly of themselves , if not tempered by the reminder of being clothed in sin.

    I was and am not , one of those people. I see Christ as being the true salvation of all men, and with that comes the cleasing or baptism , that gives those who love Him, the purity of a cleansed soul.

    Christ for me, has always been the good I sought to be. He is my best example in both character and in love.

    I choose to always keep my focus more on Him, than on others. It is why I write, to give Him glory,  in every stroke of this pen.

    Everyman has a purpose given Him by God. Some will never know it , while other will find it in teaching or preaching to others, and hearing their words for themselves.

    I believe it is in our character alone, where we find the Christ within. I believe I am selfish enough not to want any other but Him. I believe it is my purpose, not to teach or preach, but to live in the TRUTH of His Being. By being honest and trustworthy with everyman, who comes my way.  

    For it is my understanding that without Truth there is no Trust, and without Trust there is no Love. And that it is by those fruits, He will judge who I have been in Him.

    God Bless us all. And may this New Year bring Christ to Earth not in our words, but in how we live our daily lives. Let us express Him, by expanding the meaning of truth. Truth in what we say, after we write these words. Truth in how we live, and in how we take responsibility for ourselves, in how we treat those around us, our family our friends. Let us expect more from ourselves in the good we expect from ourselves,  than expecting more good from others, because of the words we use daily, to convince them.

    The True Enlightenment of Christ

    Wednesday, December 26, 2012, 8:01 AM [Character of the Christ]

    The Universe of itself, doesnt give you your worth. Light, without man as its receptor, is nothing more than molecules moving through time and space. To claim you are a product of light, only claims you are an energy. Energy in itself, brings with it, electrical impluses that stimulate the needed hormones, that animate the body's life. Energy is life, and the lack of it, can only be seen as death. However, we also know, energy doesnt die, it changes form. That is in conscienceness, the purpose of God/Christ coming to earth and fulfilling what science had yet to know.
    If ones believes in Light as their source of enlightenment, what light is it that they seem to believe it is? Enlightenment would have little meaning if its concern was strictly  mans looking for only more intellectual facts? What would man have or who would he be, without the knowledge of his Soul? Wherein the Universe, does one find their SOUL?
       The Universe's beginnings are still a mystery, not so, the birth of mankind. The Universe itself has become a religion of sorts, a life study, of the unknowable, unknown. But what would be the purpose for man, for its Creator to remain a mystery? If not to feed mans constant curiousity, that serves mans intellect  and his physical body, alone? 
    This has been offered to humanity, as mans reason for being. The belief in science as mans answer to a God, gave man a mystery that constantly uncovers more science, that ultimately comforts his bodys survival needs. Therefore, it became mans need to understand all that he doesnt know, through science.
    With this science of Mind, also comes theorys. Theorys however, in this structure, at times, is seen as a facts themselves. Even though a theory is just a theory, and goes against sciences own rules, of proof, itself?
     With this belief of lifes mystery as a source of our creation, more is left to the unknown than to the known. Where would he find his SOUL? Would there be a purpose for the soul? And if not what would be the souls replacement? How could he then, define himself? Where would the unknowable in man, find the unknowable? Only in the intellectual mind. The one that is given the term of "enligtened". Yet to what has it been enlighted to? More of the worlds mysterys? Or to the intimate knowledge of the God in man? The God in man is knowable. It however is knowable, beyond the intellect of man.
     Mankind needs to know his purpose not as an unsolvable mystery, but from a Creator that doesnt hide Himself. A being that plays no tricks with its creations. That has instilled with its creation, an inherrent good. A way that can dispell all mystery, so that man can live in the TRUTH that IS OF GOD.
    It is why Christ came to the earth. To bring both purpose and clarity to all mankind. To be mans example, not to continue a mystery that would only feed mans curiosity. Not for the tempory but to inform man of the eternal. Not for the truth of todays understanding in science, but to inspire and inform man of the wisdom that lives in an eternal being. 
    Man need is to learn who he is, in the Light of GODS Truth. Its the reason for this season. Its the reason Christ came to earth, to dispell mans illusions with what is purposeful in God. Not to form a man made religion, but a God made one.
    He came as THE WAY and as THE TRUTH OF GOD. Not to feed  men with more curiosities, or to give him more facts for his mind. He came not to unravel the science of man, or to deter Gods purpose in science itself. But rather to fulfill mans need to be fulfilled. To ignite the fire in mans heart. And to complete the emptiness that feeds mans curiosity, with something far greater than all the universe can offer.
    It is infact, only when man no longer seeks answers to confirm and understand his relationship with God..that he has become A BELIEVER.

    Suffering Can Lead to Joy

    Tuesday, December 25, 2012, 9:40 AM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    Odd that today, of all days, I had the need to speak of suffering? Maybe its because so many things happened as of late, we had to bear. Maybe its because Newtowns pain, still needs more days of Christs healing. Maybe our suffering, is our time to assess JOY?  
    There is a joy that comes , when one realizes a connection to suffering. Through suffering, man has a chance to broaden his humanity. Its not misery loves company, where some people take pleasure in sharing their pain with others, its just the reverse. When a person bares his own cross, by not seeking sympathy from others, he then has the chance to gain a reward from that suffering. He can find in... that, his humanity. He may see others whose suffering is even greater than his. Its when man can get out of his own selfish obsession of self, that a true change can happen. The joy of gratitude, for all he finally realizes he has, can enter his being. He can become grateful, for that which the suffering has caused him to understand. For in our weakness, we find our greatest strength...the Christ who has suffered all things, will be our constant example. Through Christ/God we can learn all we need to know. We can suffer in His example..and today..we can BE JOYFUL that we can rise out of every hardship..for He overcame death itself!

    His Light is Always Here

    Wednesday, December 19, 2012, 8:57 AM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    His Light is Always with US. We however seem to always see it better, when we have been impacted by something very dark.

    The past few years has proven our politics is ugly, and for the most part untruthful in how it gets presented to us. We have been falling over a financial cliff, and what really hurts is that so many of our people have suffered because of it.

    Yet the other day, something so dark, so devestating, so biblically horrifing, impacted our collective soul. Christs birth, was also surrounded by the darkness created by the lack of love, and jealous hatred of a man called Herod. Whose fear of someone greater in Heavens plan, would make him do the unthinkable, call for the slaughter of innocents!

    This week we witnessed it again, by the hand of a very ill young man. Darkness lays over the land, as the joy that usually surrounds this season , has weighed heavy on our hearts.

    He is always with us, in the GOODNESS that lives in each mans Soul. We as men whose lives are always looking down, seem to only see His Light, when acts of darkness make us look up! But His light shines on us daily. His love is in every tear we shed for our neighbor. He isnt in our politics, thats only a job choice of a man. He is more in the neighbor who from across the sea in Austrailia, sends us a tribute of compassion, for our loss.

    Today I remembered who we are. Today I remembered that most of the time, we are basking in His Light..just as a healthy body doesnt notice its stasis, until the day it doesnt feel good.

    Christ is most evident, by the goodness expressed when we choose to do good. Christ is with us when we choose to love others more than self. Christ is most with us, when we remember all that is GOOD is of GOD. That without Him, mans good character comes and goes..

    When we choose to BE WITH HIM, IN HIS WORD...That means we must "keep His Word" if we say we believe. That means we must change what is ill in our character, to what is His plan for our GOOD. The closer we are to GODS WILL IN OUR BEING, the faster the illusion of darkness melts into the Glory of HIS LIGHT. Its when all doubts , fears, and lack of understanding of who we were meant to be, gets corrected and absorbed, into His Light.

    We dont realize His Life is always with us. We are too busy with living what we see as our daily life. It's when the darkness of loss, the void of unhappiness or when we become sensitive enough to feel a lack, that we have the opportunity to turn to Him.

    He is always there, it is our separation from Him, it is our darkness, it is never His.He has already made the pathway through deaths darkness. It is His Path alone, that has provided us THE WAY out of all our sins, out of all our darknesses, into HIS LIGHT.  

    GOD blesses US  Always. With every breath we take.. MAY WE FIND JOY AGAIN.. IN THE GLORIOUS BIRTH OF OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST! And may we see Him in US, as our greatest gift!
