How are you going to write it? It begins with your own free will!
The Journey began before you were born, for the scripture tells us God sends the souls.
“And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”
To each was given free will to think, feel and choose. This is a process of the mind. No doctor of psychiatry can find the mind they can only try to anyalize and intellectualize it. No scientist can find the mind, they can only guess at how it works. No medical doctor can look at an exray or MRI and find the mind, for it is not something one can see. Both the mind and the soul cannot be seen by the naked eye as a body part. For God created it that way for a reason. We can guess at why that is so and many an idea have been written on that, but, the truth is God didn’t make us robots. He doesn’t force us to choose to follow Him. He sent our soul that we might choose with our own mind who it is that we shall love and follow. We can choose God to be our Father, or choose the ruler of this world. The decision is ours and the journey on which that decision takes us is ours to travel.
If we are to ponder meanings of wonders… let us ponder why when we come into the world at birth we are attached to a life giving umbilical cord. Strange that word so close to um-biblical? That cord has to be cut in order to give us life in the flesh. Until it is cut the newborn is attached to the placenta which has been examined by researchers to have a “tree of life” looking feeding structure where the fetus grows and survives off of it. When it is cut, the newborn soul enters into this realm.
The umbilical cord is the newborns life source. How much it resembles the tree of life depicted by the early teachings in scripture.
Do you see it?
When we go on our journey with the Lord God and the Holy Spirit guiding us, it is one that cannot be described to those who build their points of knowledge by man’s ways. It is a journey of love and truth and joy when you set out to find the answer of one thing… the Lord shows you many things along the path to find that one thing. I look back now and see the memories of when the Lord showed me answers to questions, and when the Lord and I found the answers together… and how I felt and what we said to each other in the quest of seeking together and how the journey went and how prescious all of that was and still is. The memories of those times of joy in finding one little answer together and how big that was and is to find it.
What a huge strength there is in knowing that God and the Holy Spirit showed you a thing and man was lying. It is beyond words to explain that feeling of knowing a truth. It is in that strength and that journey together with the Lord God and the Holy Spirit that no one can ever take away. It is the solid foundation to build on and build we do when we search with the Lord leading us.
God sent us the Holy Spirit to teach us and guide us and show us wisdom… it is not found in Universities, nor in a building with men in pulpits, it is found where you are… when you ask the Lord to come in and be with you and show you. You can be anywhere and ask and that is the secret to the first step in finding. As the Lord said, you have not for you ask not. Ask and you shall receive.
So that being said, what is meant by the scripture posted above Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 of the silver cord, golden bowl, the pitcher and the wheel? Let’s read it in its entire context…
1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; 2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain: 3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, 4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of music shall be brought low; 5 Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets: 6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. 7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
Take a moment and ponder what this means to you. What do you believe it says and what parts do you not quite understand? List the things you believe you understand then list the things you believe you don’t understand. Next ask the Lord and the Holy Spirit to show you where in the scriptures to find the answers to these questions… and be willing to seek where ever the Holy Spirit leads you for sometimes a valuable piece to the answer is in another book or place. For example… the Jewish Customs are not something those who are not Jewish are taught, therefore… we may need to see what some things mean so we come to the understanding of the truth in a scripture written to the people of Israel of that time.
The book of Ecclesiastes was written by Solomon. There is much wisdom in each line. I was not knowing what it meant to have the “golden bowl be broken”, or the “pitcher shattered at the well” or the “wheel”. I understood it meant the end of one’s life and repentance was in need before we die. But there was so much more. Each person will draw a different level of what it means to them. Just as each person has their own purpose they are called to do, each person will be drawn to the knowledge and the tools needed to fulfill that purpose. God has all of His children working in different areas as the Lord described as the body of Christ. Not all are the head, and not all are the arms, the legs, etc. And some are special little joints. So each must read the Word of God for themselves with the Holy Spirit leading them, for in doing that comes Wisdom. Each must talk to God themselves and listen to what their Father God is speaking to them. Each must go to where He leads them to go.
This video explains the Silver Cord, Golden Bowl, the Pitcher and the Fountain….
The journey I have been on is different than any one elses and so will your journey be different and unique to you. Yet, when we take the journey with the Lord God and the Holy Spirit leading us, we will all share many of the same truths and be in harmony with one another.
Remember … Your life’s Journey is filled with lessons that you are to learn. No one can learn them for you!
As you go through life, and especially now at this time we are in… you are bombarded by all sorts of lies, gaslighting, propaganda, fake news, podcasters out to give you some truth so you will also swallow the lies they sneak in and if you listen to all of them… you will be totally confused and misguided. Below are some pictures I put together for a book I wrote. One showing the literary arts box concept of analyzing, and the other showing all the different ideas of Acts and Arcs on how to write a good book. Since the intellectuals love to talk about story arcs and the heroe’s journey… it’s time for each to realize that every one of us are on our own heroe’s journey. The goal is to avoid the villains! Get ready, set, GO!!!
In the book I wrote, “Book Writing Simplified – Outside The Literary Art Box”, the goal was to show people how to get off the hampster wheel where all the literary arts gate keepers place you on, then bar the doors with confusion and wrap you upside the head for typos and editing quirks, while they, themselves can’t write one creative story without their arcs and rules of literacy. Most are rule memorizers whose expertise comes in editing other peoples work. This is a direct result of the Committee of 300 who dumb down the talent of the masses in order to push the ones they appoint and annoint into the #1 best seller list by design. The same way they do the music industry, Sports, Hollywood, political and corporate settings, etc.. The only way to be creative is to throw out all the arcs, and rules! This same advice applies to searching the scriptures for yourselves… go with God…and throw the church rules and other man made bla, bla in the trash where they belong!
Whatever it is they are directing you to do in their ideal life script, they have rules for everything! They have rules for story arcs, plots, rising action, heroes journey, climax… before you can ever write you have to learn all of the rules which is sure to ensure that you never have another creative thought of your own! That’s what 501c3 Church has accomplished. Break free! Take your journey with the Lord God and the Holy Spirit! As the Lord said, “… buy from me gold tried in the fire.” Rev. 3:18
Throw the arcs and man made mind clutter in the trash and let the real journey begin!
Arc, Arc…everywhere an Arc. Which happens to be the not so creative name of Peterson’s new way to the climate change peacefully… ARC, his billionaire funded “Alliance of Responsible Citizenship”, which puts you and all humanity in the box, and places a iron lid on top, so heavy that no one can ever get out!
There are many tests when you are gold being tried in the fire. Take the Lord’s hand and travel with Him and you never walk alone.
I remember one time after a very laborious search for the answer to one question, how I searched through all the many scriptures and cross referenced words and looked in the Septuagint for the rest of paragraphs that were for some reason edited out of the King James bible in the book of Genesis of all places… and how God showed me to look there and see… and then look here, and now look there and here, and here….when it all came to finding one little answer to a question. When that was found after months, I asked the Lord… why didn’t you just make that clear in the scripture? My answer was that if it would have been clearly stated, I would not have learned all the things that needed to be learned that went with it. I will never forget that. I also learned from that, not to cast my pearls before swine. Smile. The journey is one we take with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to find the truth and that journey is ours… it is our personal time together and our relationship. It is the most precious of all relationships and everlasting.
The joy of that is unmeasurable. To be able to look back in our lives of all those times we had together and how that all went… is prescious. And to laugh at some of those days together with the Lord… and to recall the times when I thought I understood something, only to find there were so many more levels yet to understand it fully, and I didn’t know that. Laughing at that in a prescious way. Not mockingly, but joyfully and knowing also that there is still another level to reach in that one scripture or answer discovered, even when I thought I had found it all. Smile.
In closing, I would like to share a comment someone sent me on Telegram and it was so unique and enlightening… I just had to share it. In regards to the blog titled “Never Trust Opinions From Intellectual Think Tanks”, she responded with her agreement to that, then added the special part titled “Story Time”. *(I added a few pics. Smile.)
Dianne – as always …keep it coming. I’ve only watched the Jordan Peterson guy one time (once was enough). It was a talk with a dude who writes “predictive programming algorithms” etc and linguistics for the AI. I have the video somewhere.
Anyways, “they” are trying to get AI perfected – let’s just put it that way.
AI isn’t going to go away. It’s here, it is a part of this world at this present time . However, AI does not have a soul! Never has and never will. When they do these “think tanks”, asking questions and what not – the underbelly is they are really to get the AI to “think” like a human. (I know you know this 😊)
Whewsh! All that to say this:
Let’s just say – God wrote those Scriptures to His people. Which we all can agree – He did. Let’s even call it a “love letter” to his people.
Ever had a diary? Well, let’s just say my brother Aldo (fictitious name) got hold of my diary and read it. Which he did by the way (turd)! BIG TURD.
Anyways, I was MAD – I didn’t want him to EVER do that to me again. I mean I could hide it – but he might beat me up and find it. So, anyways – I started encoding my “diary” so it wouldn’t matter if he got hold of it! I even hid my key!
Imagine – somewhere hidden is a “key” (much like the Sword in the Stone story) – I can’t even remember the details of the fairy tale anymore <sigh>.
You had to be “pure” hearted to get the sword 🗡️ from the stone.
Stay with me <smile> – I really am trying to paint a picture.
Back to the diary – remember my stinking brother Aldo?
I decided to “encode” my diary.
I made the layers so deep! I didn’t want all my lovers to find out about themselves from me just because they got my diary from Aldo. A jilted lover because all they did was go through the motions. If my jilted lover wanted to share the details of my love life – well, ha ha ha ! I got another layer – nanner nanner boo boo!
Aldo and all the jilted lovers – heck, there got to be so many of em too! They could pour over my diary – my diary! Spill out my love life – my letters! Taking my words, my love, and twisting it into my own heart! Don’t they know? My love is pure – how could they do this to me?
Aldo and his friends – they THINK they are getting my love letters! Ha!
They are really going to have to want to know the details of my love life to know me! Even if he thinks he knows – he doesn’t! Even if he broadcasts my diary and tells the world about me.
I have words, very smooth words! I had to put a few bumpy parts in my diary too. Why? Because at some point, Aldo and his friends might figure it out.
That is why I had to have a “key” – because if anyone really reads my diary and gets through all those layers and layers of codes – well they must really want to know who I am.
Now, if you have the “key” and my diary – you will KNOW who you are and how very much I love you!
The scriptures are like that. You just gots to “see” yourself in them”
You really have to “see” yourself. My love is so pure ! If you only knew how much I love 💗 you .
End of my little story.
Dianne – Thank you for all you do! Much love ❤️
KEEP ON PRESSING INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD! PRESS, PRESS, PRESS!
