But they never will be if they keep chasing happiness like a tail.
You know that book/movie “The Secret” that has been taking the world by storm…? Of course you do. They left out one extremely vital truth:
1) Aggregate Consciousness – The effect and power of a collective societies consciousness
There are only 2 basic impulses: LOVE and FEAR. In western society the aggregate consciousness leans heavily on the side of fear. Think news, wars, economy… Politics (Republicans are SCARED the Democrats will win and visa versa)… even Sales Advertising (You’re SCARED you’ll miss the deal)
This presentation is a much watch for the above information, and the progression that each one of these impulses inevitably follows. The falls under the study of Natural Law. (This is not me by the way)
Here’s a short post that foreshadows a much longer exposition on the topic.
Your mind has two side or hemispheres. Each side roughly corresponds to a different kind of thinking:
Left side – Analytical, logical, scientific thinking
Right side – Creative, emotional, moral thinking
The trick is to think with both sides in balance. When one side dominates your thinking process it leads to a certain kind of subtle madness that makes it easy for you to be manipulated by people who better understand the way the mind works.
Here’s a fascinating video that explains this much better than I have:

… For one man’s selfishness.
Things you never really take the time to consider.
The ability to read and reason. Sight. Color. The ability to remember… To be unique. The forces that hold the universe together. The day and the night. The ability to communicate and create.
It is interesting that all that is physical, originated from the unseen. Thoughts. Forces. Feelings. Dreams. Energy. And of course…
Remember who to be thankful to…
All glory be to God!!
Happy Thanksgiving and God bless everyone!
It’s late, I’m tired, but I’ve been struck by the bolt of inspiration. Forgive the messiness but I just need to get this thought out.
I heard a quote (in a Nas song): “The strong rule the weak, but the wise rule the strong.”
I thought about it… it is true on a profound level. But there is a piece missing… As with almost everythign in existence, the system is cyclical. While this proverb (in the non-Biblical sense) makes sense on a logical, easily understandable level. The missing piece however is not drawn from temporal wisdom, but rather spiritual wisdom.
We learn in the Bible the favor that the weak, meek, poor in spirit, etc. have in God’s eyes and heart. They shallinherit the Kingdom of Heaven, it is said. For you see, in God’s ideal world system, the weak rule the wise. In that the wise take council from the weak, in turn commanding the strong, who take care of the weak. This is in essence the idea of democracy, in which the (weak) masses, rule the (wise) politicians, who command the (strong) army, money, etc.
This is why democracy fits so well with a Christian-born governmental system.
True wisdom is found in submission.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10)
Fear begets submission.
If the wise do not submit to the will of the weak and rule the strong by their own will, then they have traded their wisdom for arrogance, and their wisdom is turned to veiled strength. So you see, the world leaders of this day are not wise, for they lack the humble wisdom of submission. They rule with intellectual STRENGTH. Not wisdom…
The question is… are they fools, sinners, or have they (or someTHING else) purposefully broken God’s system?

It is often difficult to distinguish between who we are, and who we’ve learned to be.
1) God gave us free will. If you knew God was real, then you’d also KNOW that if you don’t do certain things and do do certain things you’d be risking going to hell. If you knew that, then although you would technically have free will, you practically wouldn’t be free to make certain choices that would send you to hell because you’d be WAY too extremely terrified of that possibility to risk it… God is a God or Righteousness. Isn’t it more righteous to allow people to choose how to live their lives freely, then to threaten them with torture if they do certain things. Heaven and Hell are not punishments but choices that we make. When we die, our state at that time become our ETERNAL, UNCHANGING state. If we died having made the choice to create suffering in others and thus simultaneously create suffering in ourselves, then our eternal choice is for suffering. If we die in a state of choosing to foster peace and love, then we shall live eternally in that state. There are other prerequisites, like believing in God is a biggie :) I digress…
2) He (God) does not love arrogance. God has given us plenty of information about him through the holy books He has inspired to spread across the Earth. From every big city to surprisingly isolated villages on south-east Asian islands, practically everyone has heard of God, or has that general concept in their belief systems somewhere if they haven’t. So the choice of rejecting God is a deliberate one. One has to thing “Naw, most of the world is crazy, dumb, or delusional to believe is something like that.” Is it really so far fetched to believe that when you die you will continue living in another form. Is it any more far fetch than to say that you came out of existence from nowhere and one day you will return to nowhere. It seems easier to believe because some people adopt the notion that only what they can see and hear is real. Yet we rely on unseen radio, microwaves, gravity, electricity, the list goes on. A clue perhaps? Isn’t it a little arrogant to think that you are capable of perceiving all the layers and forces that exist around and within us. You can’t even see your own face most of the time… I think that’s a humbling thought.
