Not an Ideal World Not an Ideal World

In an ideal world all of our rulers, leaders, and ministers would have knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. There would be no need for war. The people would benefit by being able to lead quiet and peaceful lives. They could be honest and caring. They would have the freedom to worship or not in away of their own choosing. They should have the freedom to pursue their dreams.

Unfortunately ours is not an ideal world. The people have been deceived. The rulers, leaders, and ministers are not motivated by truth and justice. They have no mercy or kindness. They give lip service to the laws of man and God. Love and service are just words without meaning. Men and women are used as pawns in the quest for power.

The founders of all the world religions are rolling over in their graves. It is time for the people to stand up to the tyrants and those who are destroying humanity and this world. Each man and woman has the right to live a peaceful life. But, Who will stand up and be counted and say enough of this foolishness? We are all members of the same family. Let us live together in peace.

Thanksgiving  Thanksgiving Prayer:

Father accept our thanks for all you have done for us.  

We thank you for all of creation,

 for the beauty of this world, 

for the wonders of life, 

and for our Ministry of love.  

We thank you for the blessings of family and friends,

We thank you for setting us tasks that demand our best efforts 

and for leading us to accomplish many wonderful things.  

We thank you for those disappointments and failures 

that lead us to acknowledge our shortcomings.  

We thank you for each opportunity to learn and grow.

We ask that you continue to grant us the gift of your Spirit 

so that through the Spirit,  we may at all times,

A Sea of Sand A Sea of Sand is about to wash over many areas of this world carried by a great wind. Some cities will sink to the bottom of this sea never to rise again. Not global warming but man's inhumanity to man is the cause.

The past is repeating for we have not learned. Great deserts will be formed in places where man is acting like a beast. It has happened before and will happen again. Some rivers will run dry and others will change course.

These events can be stopped for mankind may choose a different path but this is not likely to happen. It is not the end of the world but the end of parts of our civilization. The earth is weeping for her children.

Just a dream or the ramblings of an old mind. We must unite as a family to survive. The message is clear and has been freely shared. Will humanity heed this warning?

Remembering

Before Judaism, Christianity, and Islam there was a religion in the world that did not accept or recognize that there was One all powerful God. They saw the world as a battle ground between two equally powerful deities. One represented the light and the other darkness. Above these two, there was a Supreme God that took no interest and would not intervene in this world for it was not his creation but was created by lessor beings. This world was a prison for souls and there was no value in human life. The only way to escape this world was to destroy it.

As long as fear, hatred, and ignorance was maintained, this world would remain in chaos and darkness. There is no place for truth, love, or compassion for they are considered as weaknesses by those who serve the dark side. Those who serve the dark side will use the religious teaching and beliefs of others to foster their own agenda. These religious designations are meaningless for they are all created by man. Their value to those who serve the dark side is that they can be used to divide mankind into warring camps.

All the religions of the world maintained a hint of this religion and viewed it a phase of human development that was to be left behind. The followers of those religions forgot and thought it meaningless to remember this dark force and how to fight or overcome it for it was a relic of the ancient past. As the world religions have lost sight of the true light, the darkness has reemerged and is gaining strength.

It can be stopped but humanity must again unite in serving the light of truth, love, and compassion.
