My first draft of this article was not my best, the second time around I awakened late at night and was moved to reedit my original thoughts, the words just seemed to flow. I urge you to take a moment of your precious time to read this captivating story which will not disappoint. It’s about mans inventions, modifications, and creations that will not endure.

Is anything natural in todays world? Has everything become modified to some degree? We have synthetically or artificially manufactured concoctions that mimick, tweak, or reinvent about anything.

The original pattern of Gods creation and natures perfect rhythm which is in splendid harmony with all that surrounds us is under attack. The allure of money, greed, and control has become a revolving door that seeks to capitalize on modifications that are not natural. That revolving door never stops and keeps turning faster without comprehending that enough is enough. It continuously opens into new realms of inventions created by man who actually believes he has mastered the power to control the destiny of mankind, the universe, and earths future. Dark forces that refuse to accept the fact that man made creations and manipulations of the building blocks of the universe cannot undo what God has created.

We reengineer the dynamics that Mother Nature set in stone, we create the formulas that synthetically alter many things that were set in motion eons ago. We have come a long way some would say, yet we remain conflicted, incompatible with so many artificial things that cause us problems physically, mentally, and spiritually. In many cases we departed from the natural ways we were ordained to embrace. We were intended be in harmony with God and our surroundings, but we are out of balance now because we have neglected our soul for the arrogance of the thought that we control the order and proceedings of the universe and the world we live in. The belief that we can invent a new reality that modifies Gods plan creates an unstable standard that will eventually collapse on us. Only God is in control and has the power to command the vastness of the universe and our world.

Through God we become enlightened and then all things are possible, without God we are nothing more than a lost soul wandering aimlessly, devising ways that artificially fill us with deceptive gratification. How small we must look to our Master who gazes upon us from above, yet he forgives us. The time draws near, it’s been said for years. Someday the time will be here, it’s then we wish we were sincere. The attempt to artificially manufacture, control, and manipulate all things will be crushed in due time and many will be quashed by the Master of all. It is then reality will be evident and the artificial, synthetic creations we have endeared will be destroyed. There is no need to wait for the power of God to be within which will guide us safely home, for all is lost if time expires and our soul is alone with the creations of man who is unable to discover the map that leads us home.

The Despair Of Change

We owe it to ourself to  make a genuine attempt to navigate through changes in our life so we can enjoy peace and harmony in our heart and in the hearts of others.

 

The world we remember from our childhood days has faded into the past and the people we grew up with also changed based on experiences in their life. In fact, we are all changing at this very moment, possibly unaware of the transformation we are going through. Time marches onward with each new moment presenting something different from the last. Change can initially be quite a shock, there is no need to be bitter because it will only make things worse. We have a tendency to be stressed and agitated with any action that is considered out of the norm we are accustomed to. When we look at the present and assess its merit based on recollections of past, it can bring heartache and despair because things are not the same. Whether we like it or not, change will affect us at some point in time, it is part of the natural progression of all things. If we understand that change offers a new set of challenges to deal with, we can take that opportunity to adjust how we manage our life. We can implement a plan to move forward with a new purpose that helps us realize we can alter our life to meet the issues we face.

Change can cause us to become withdrawn, agitated, or remorseful. Its normal to take a little time and do what we must to sort through our emotions, then we should move on with our life. It’s ok to look back and remember the past, but reformation will take us into the future and give us a great opportunity to face tomorrow with a new outlook. Sooner or later we have to deal with change or let it fester until it defeats us. To be defeated is to give up and that unrest will cause us discomfort. If we cannot adapt to change and are unwilling to take the necessary steps to move on, the world will pass us by, leaving us alone and bitter. In the midst of anxiety we should strive to find a benevolent reason to keep marching onward with resolution, determination, strength, and courage.

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when change occurs. Spinning our wheels will not bring back the past nor will it transport us into the future. It will only stop our momentum, leaving us stuck on one moment in time that can thwart our desire to move on. Irritation and aggravation sets in and our efforts to make amends becomes very frustrating. We are destined to flow gently with developments in our life, just as gentle words and a smile can work wonders and miracles. The sooner we accept change, the sooner our life becomes free from ingrained ideals that robs our happiness, keeps us stirred up, and keeps us from engaging rationally with each other.

When the time comes that we no longer have the urgency to navigate through various changes in our life, we have lost our ability to maximize the present. If we are not in the present, we must be in the past because we have failed to put forth the effort to resolve issues that advance our understanding of developments in our life. Is it ideal to be agitated and unwilling to progress or compromise if change affects our happiness and way of life? I believe it’s better to find a way to maneuver with change for acceptable resolutions than to completely dismiss it. We must live our own life, make our own decisions, and in the end be judged for what we did with our life. We owe it to ourself to  make a genuine attempt to navigate through changes in our life so we can enjoy peace and harmony in our heart and in the hearts of others.

Time To Waste

Discover

Ready, set, go, we have been born into the human race and the finish line will come. In the meantime we can manage our time and grow each day in some way, we can experience something small each day that enlighten’s us. These small revelations can bring discovery, joy, and peace to our life. A huge key to life progressing in a favorable manner is to learn from mistakes, from accomplishments, from elders, from youngsters, from theologians, and from other honorable sources. As long as we are alive we can never give up, we must learn. Nobody wants to suffer failure and decline from lack of knowledge or from lack of motivation to keep all of our  bodily systems functioning at an optimal level.

We can easily understand that it does not matter how old we are or how much we achieve in life, we must continue to manage our…

Actions & Words Work Together

If we don’t have integrity, we don’t earn respect. 

Actions and words work together. Would we rather speak the truth or speak words someone wants to hear that pleases them? The display of character is not just words, it is a persons actions that also contribute to character. Our actions are a display of character before the words and after the words. Truthful words and honorable actions solidify our integrity. Without integrity, we don’t earn respect.

If We Could See Ourself As Others See Us

Failures are often attributed to doubting ourself, leaving our true identity clouded by our own insecurity.

It could be extraordinary if we had the insight to see ourself as others see us. We could understand what an exceptional person we are or what an exceptional person we could become. It’s easy to sell ourself short without realizing the potential or goodness others see in us. Often we don’t give ourself credit for the talents we display or for the talents we keep in reserve and are reluctant use. Failures are usually attributed to doubting ourself, leaving our true identity clouded by our own insecurity.

The Corrector And The Know It All

Habitual Correctors look for the slightest miscue to pounce on to assert their dominance with a gotcha moment in front of peers. Others can be Know It Alls who vehemently insist their perspective is the only way. These types of operatives are not pleasant and look at others as being unable to formulate anything that comes close to their intelligence.

Enter the constant Corrector of every perceived or real miscue a person makes and enter the Know It All who always has a better perspective on everything. We all know them, we have all been exposed to them. We do not and should never pretend to know it all.  Many of us are not professional authorities on specific topics with the exception of a few distinguished individuals. Our principles are usually based on our life experiences and our current understanding of what we are trying to convey.  It is possible to convey the wrong message, but to spring into action with constant interruptions, name calling, rudeness, or other attacks which assert superiority is unnecessary.  Sometimes critique can be quite helpful and enlightening when done with compassion, other times not so much, especially when it is forceful or quarrelsome.

Habitual Correctors look for the slightest miscue to pounce on to assert their dominance with a gotcha moment in front of peers. Others can be Know It Alls who vehemently insist their perspective is the only way. These types of operatives are not pleasant and look at others as being unable to formulate anything that comes close to their intelligence. Their mission is to assert control and belittle a person to the point of rudeness, disrespect, and sometimes to the point of violence? The Corrector and the Know It All are nauseating when they declare their way is the only way. Being full of arrogance and holding on to a sense of superiority over others vehemently interferes with the ability to be reasonable or to have a balanced conversation. We have all seen abrasive and toxic personalities destroy friendships and quell any meaningful exchange of ideas. The constant Correctors and Know It Alls have always been around, but todays environment seems to promote and encourage aggressive tactics which ignores the principles of manners, respect, and honor.

If one has witnessed or been the receiver of the pesky Corrector or Know It All, you understand it can be quite irritating and frustrating, yet it is liberating to know the high ground is available. The Correctors grunt with unending tirades of gotcha ya again and the arrogant Know It All rarely garners a compromise. Some of the best ways to deal with such behavior is to take a breath and quickly think about the meaning of life. The questions are, will this be a situation where I can bring some enlightenment, or are they bringing enlightenment which needs to be considered, is this a situation that is headed for no resolution? What will be the effect this Corrector or Know It All inflicts on me and is it worth getting caught up in? It’s ok to graciously excuse yourself from situations that became invasive, abrasive, and forceful. On the other hand, if a person is wrong and gets corrected or enlightened responsibly, there is no shame in willingly admitting a mistake.

There is no reason to become a victim to the Corrector or the Know It All who siphons the life out of everyone they come in contact with. Move on quickly and summons your spirituality, confidence, and strength to overcome remarks that forcefully seek to keep you in a prison. Meanwhile the Corrector and the Know It All revel in their superiority. They are one hundred percent convinced their assumed superiority is untouchable. Give them plenty of space, they will eventually end up in a vacuum where no friends exist. There will be no hot air for them to expel,  no wind to fill their lungs, nor an audience when they try to proclaim their victories.

Life is a continuing education, however some folks believe they know it all, they never progress past their ingrained ideologies. Most of us learn something different with each new dawn and incorporate that into our life, some don’t and that’s another story. I believe the majority of people have balanced conversations and exchange ideas in a respectful manner. There is no data available that confirms any of us get to the point where we are so perfect that we are ordained to constantly correct any and all miscues whether real or perceived. We never reach the point of being the perfect all knowing Know It All.  We are the ones in control of how we choose to react to situations that challenge our patience and perspective on anything. Never give anyone control of your values, morals, and honor because they will gobble you up like a vulture and leave the leftovers for the worms.

If a person calmly and reasonably states their case, they are bound to come out on top. Personal attacks rarely change opinions or generate camaraderie. Consider not responding further when attacks become overbearing, stick to your guns because the more a person continues the conversation, the Corrector and the Know It All will find an avenue to respond. If a person feels the need to correct or impart knowledge upon another, gently correct, do it wisely, do it with love, and please no explanation points are needed.

Feel free to correct me and if anyone knows it all, I would love to meet you. Never present yourself to be more than who your are, never be less than who you are, just be yourself. I bid you good day.

Conspiracy Theories Are Made To Confuse, Maybe or Maybe Not.

Who doesn’t like a good conspiracy theory? We can take anything controversial,  create some doubt, assimilate blanket media coverage, keep pumping out the conspiracy.  Consistently push that false narrative and it becomes truth, or maybe it is the truth.

One conspiracy theory that has always fascinated me is; why have we never returned to the moon, is the moon a solid object, is it inhabited, are there bases on the moon which are kept secret, did we really go to the moon, are we secretly sending missions to the moon without public knowledge, have there been discoveries of alien life on the moon, but kept secret in order to maintain the status quo of 21st century life?  Supposedly the thought in the 60’s and 70’s was whoever claimed the moon as their territory would have a strategic advantage over the earth. Since it appears nobody has returned to the moon, does that mean no country has a lock on the strategic control of earth?

Personally I believe we are far more advanced in technology than what we are led to believe. Any discovery of a planet or an orb close to earth that we could possibly travel to, or inhabit would seen like an obtainable goal to me in todays world of technological advancements. However there is simply to much money to be made on earth from antiquated technology by holding back on the most recent discoveries. New technologies could revolutionize and have revolutionized the way we live on earth. The issue to me is we are purposefully kept behind the curve on many futuristic technologies that would seem unbelievable and straight out of a sci-fi movie. I suggest only a select group of specialized individuals are privy to amazing discoveries which hold the key that can open doors to new frontiers which the general population is unaware of. I feel quite confident we have developed propulsion technology and transport technology that far surpasses your typical rocket launch which puts satellites and astronauts in earth orbit. If a person can imagine something, it is possible.

What is your conspiracy theory………………………??????
