Imagination Brings Reality

So you don’t believe your imagination transforms visions into reality. Let me suggest that your imagination is not an unfulfilled vision in your mind but is in fact something that actually manifests itself and becomes reality.

If you have imagined something, it has already happened, it is about to happen or it will happen sometime. In order for anything to be accomplished, it had to be imagined by someone. Perhaps your vision may not materialize for you due to lack of focus, knowledge or motivation but it has or will become reality for someone else, somewhere, some time. Imagination brings conceptions to reality through events of the past, present or future. History eventually proves this because everything that mankind imagined will be recorded in the book of humanity which will be weighed on the scale of good or bad.

Imagination is not something that happens in a vacuum, which is void of thought. Imagination is a concept born in the mind that manifests itself somewhere, sometime with real outcomes and consequences.

Our Artificial World Will Not Endure

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? Have we synthetically or artificially manufactured concoctions that mimick, tweak, or reinvent about anything a person can think of.

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 us which will guide us safely home. Count on the fact that all will be 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 the passage of time and 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. It’s 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.

Actions & Words

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. If only we could see ourselves as others see us.

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 everything with the exception of a few distinguished individuals who I have yet to meet. 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. The Corrector and the Know It All they are so full of themselves, their ego bursting of superiority, their facial expressions contorted like a clown. Why do we put up with them?

Habitual Correctors look for the slightest miscue to pounce on you, they assert their dominance with a gotcha moment in front of your peers. Others can be Know It Alls who vehemently insist their perspective is the only way. These types of operatives are not pleasant to be around and they 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. I have to wonder where on earth did these folks get the idea they are the only people on earth with the intelligence to know everything. They will fill a room with such arrogance that folks are turned off by their ignorance.

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 under their spell. 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 all miscues. 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.

Conspiracy Theories, Are They True or False?

Who doesn’t like a good conspiracy theory? We can take anything controversial,  create some doubt, assimilate blanket media coverage and keep pumping out the conspiracy.  A consistent narrative will eventually pull in many people and it eventually becomes truth, or maybe it is not the truth. The whole idea of a conspiracy is to stimulate different approaches of reason that either sustain, disprove, create doubt or fuel division.

One conspiracy theory that has always fascinated me is; why have we never returned to the moon, is the moon hollow or solid, 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? Why are the craters depth not proportional to the size of the meteor impact? The mathematical anomalies associated with the moon are fascinating and to precise to be coincidence. What is the true origin of the moon? Why are there moonquakes and how do they originate. 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? So many questions, all have answers, but are they truth? Who knows, because I have never been to the moon to personally verify any information provided to the public.

We still shoot guns with bullets, just as we did a few hundred years ago. You’re telling me there is not new weapon technology that would make guns as we know them obsolete? The atomic bomb was developed in the 40’s, just imagine how far weapon technology has advanced since then.

To believe we are only as advanced as what we are told and shown would be naive. 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 the way we live on earth but with our current economic and belief system, there is little incentive to cue the public in on what has been accomplished. 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. 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, then anything is possible.

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


The days come and go, the years creep up on us like a shooting star streaking swiftly across the sky, so fast it’s gone in a blink. Time is measured according to the motion of all things which surround us. Our life is but a second compared to the boundless age of a universe. Yet we live like we are supreme, the masters of all, conquering anyone or anything which threatens our ability to be the controller of our own time and space. We believe if we are the conquers, we control destiny. Perhaps temporarily true, but not true in the long run. Because time is measured, we exert great effort to control it, but we cannot control the preset motion of time which has been ongoing since the beginning. Everything has an order in the realm of time, we are part of an order that has been ordained to go on forever, just not forever on earth. We are here in the present, let us live with the knowledge that every day brings different challenges and emotions that requires our time. It is how we negotiate our journey in this very limited time on earth that determines our destination for each day and for our life.

Because we measure time, we realize a beginning and an end, but everything in between is often a blur. Time exists, it is valuable and evident on the physical plane of earth. No matter what age we are, the forward motion of the clock continues. Sometimes it appears to go fast, other times it seems to stand still, but in the end it is never long enough. The forces of time are knocking on the door of each generation with a tick tock announcing, “I am measured, I have a beginning and an end, and when my measurement of your time runs out, you will physically cease to exist on earth.” The awareness that we do not control the forward motion of time emerges as a reality. It becomes imperative to make the most of each passing second, it can never be rewound for a redo. Most successful people have found ways to use time usefully. Unsuccessful people waste time, they are unmotivated and rarely finish projects, much to the annoyance of others.

We are born to accomplish as much as we can in our lifetime. Being efficient plays a huge role with time management. The more efficient we are, the more we can contribute to future endeavors. The last minute is not the time to complete a task that required forgiveness, research, creativity and facts. Time will wait for no one, manage it wisely and make the most of every moment whether that be a much needed rest or surge of productivity.

A Life Well Lived

There is an answer to the torment which threatens to envelop our life. We are spiritual beings, capable of more goodness than we can fathom. Let no one encourage you to become anything other than a spiritual being capable of connecting directly with God through Christ our Lord.

Rest, relaxation, acknowledging and accepting the truth will bring healing to our bodies and mind. All negativity, and hurtful burdens of the body, mind and soul comes from the bottomless pit which is ablaze with torment, agony, and misery.

There is an answer to the torment which threatens to envelop our life. We are spiritual beings, capable of more goodness than we can fathom. Let no one encourage you to become anything other than a spiritual being capable of connecting directly with God through Christ our Lord. We can tune ourselves to ask and receive new and amazing guidance from God by freeing ourselves from the earthly bondage which seeks to keep us occupied with greed, hatred, and deception. Physical and material acquisitions will eventually leave us unfulfilled and unhappy, devoid of the true meaning of life. We must be able to forgive and love and be inspired by our spirit to seek new and noble heights that are worthy of a life well lived. If we get derailed, we must get back on track and persevere. We can never give in to the temptation of giving up or waiting to be rescued by someone else, for that can become a great hinderance to a prosperous life.

When we are young, time seems to last forever. When we grow old, we realize just how fast time passes. Our pursuit to make the most of each day becomes more and more of a priority. We do not have time to waste, no matter what age we are. The urgency to be in harmony and balance with all that surrounds us must come from within. The answers to all that exists, and all that was and all that will be comes from God Almighty. We can make new beginnings and reach unimaginable heights if we seek truth and acceptance of the Word of God. If I had to pick three points of focus that exemplifies a glorious life, I would pick God, truth, and faith.

Happiness is the result of a life well lived. Life is a gift which gives us the opportunity to show love, kindness and strength throughout our journey. A life well lived is a life with no regrets. Keep life in order, manage the events you face each day with positive actions. Don’t wait until it’s to late to make amends for past mistakes.

Todays Sunset Brings Tomorrows Hope

Today draws to a close with the sun gently slipping below the western horizon signaling that peace must come for a restful night. Our world becomes aglow with the light of the shimmering moon, we drift deeply into the realm of sleep. Our yesterdays fill us with memories, with rest and shelter, health and food, love for family and friends, and with everything that our Creator authored. Our day has passed, we can never physically live yesterday again. Catalogue yesterday and close the file.

A fresh day is on its way filling the dawn with a glimmer in the east. Today we open a new file and fill it with love and new beginnings. The glorious sunrise awakens a new day of hope, opportunity, and new starts. Each unique sunrise holds a promise to shed light upon the earth and its inhabitants. The sun rises for everyone to begin anew, no human owns the sun or determines who it will shine on. This new day starts for everyone with serenity and a chance for worthy remembrances for tomorrow. What a blessing to be in the land of the living and offer thanks for the precious privilege of being alive. This is a perfect time to open our mind connect with God. Our grateful heart is a magnet that can attract and carry out unbelievable miracles each new day. If we can offer only one prayer, let it be thank you Lord for today.
