Check out the Magma Column on the Western side of Mt. Si
(Directly above the words “Check out”)
Of course the other three points are also from volcanic activity, but it is rare to see the actual column after so many years, almost pushing its way out the front… still to this day. It had a peak at one time, I would guess, but when you look closely you can see its been cast to the four corners of the Earth.
I live for the day that Mt. Rainier blows, praying I’m sitting on top of THIS mountain, my mountain, Mt. Si, so I have a front row seat to the most spectacular eruption of our time. Most likely I’ll get covered by a foot of ash and suffocate, but what a way to go, eh? lol What a show!
That and I’ve always longed to watch Yosemite blow…
one can always hope
If you did a pole on people across the world, how many do you think believe that ‘their actions’ will get them into Heaven? Being a good Christian woman or man; going to church every sunday, giving an entire dollar bill to the homeless guy with the sign, baking cookies for hours to raise money so the youth league can purchase a new basketball hoop, dressing your daughters in matching pink dresses with black paten shoes and your sons in matching suits every sunday, being kind to others, earning good Karma, giving 10% of your income to your church each month, helping to usher or passing the plate, singing in the choir, going to church at Christmas time and Easter, or any other time you want… ETC.
Sadly, you will find that about 90% actually think this is true.
I am here to tell you… you missed the point.
All of those things will slowly make you a better person… but GOD doesn’t care if you are a better person. He will take you as you ARE… RIGHT NOW… and could care less if you are a good person.
The point you missed, was PUTTING GOD FIRST… not the image you want others to see. NOT following others like a lamb to slaughter. But instead, LETTING GOD RUN YOUR LIFE.
Every day, morning noon or night, TELL GOD TO DO WITH YOU WHAT HE WILL!! Tell God, USE ME today Lord, in any way you need.
THIS WILL INSURE YOUR FUTURE IN HEAVEN… nothing in that first paragraph will do!
(GBAbyG on Christmas Eve, so bummed she got a new unicorn helmet, because her bike is broken and Grammy didn’t know it… bad Grammy…. Gbabygirl forgave me. )
finding your tree of life
Glory kisses a seed
grow towards the light
rinse in the falling rain
shine and bow
once rooted sway away
for the light is grown in you
and hope is your seed
find the Messiah in you
the Hope of Glory
burning in the light
leave darkness to fall
shine from your soul
stretch your branch of hope
resting in the Messiah
the Hope of Glory
rising from the ashes
stirring the wind of a lost world
to save a species unworthy
more beautiful than an eagle
no flaming phoenix compares
soaring a slow sacred spiral
eyes surveying lush green
rolling into grays and dark
filthy boxes of mortality
shadowed by the girdle
of rising peaks of white
in a breath or a moment
of cleanliness and clarity
before carnality dances by
filling the streets now tiny
His soul smiles
as He rises further
My internet has been down… due to me FIRING Centurylink… they suck!
So I’ve been gone for some time, flying mostly anyway, and not spending any time at all writing here… but what I did do… is lay down some rules for the month of October…
While my internet is down, I WILL FINISH my latest work of art, my novel, A Hot Mess of Murder… BEFORE November 1st… when Nanowrimo starts up again, and I have to start a whole new novel.
Therefore, I probably won’t post much here, but I did need to post this, to MAKE myself keep to my goals. This novel was created for the most part 2 years ago, and then life took over. Mostly, my new life as a paraglider! GAWD… I cannot get enough. Writing just got thrown to the wayside.
Anyway, I just wanted to pop in, and say… HELLO, MISSED YOU ALL, and SEE YA SOON….
HAVE A BLESSED DAY ALL!!
like a voodoo doll, poking and stabbing
your friend one moment
your frenemy the next
the gossip shared behind another’s back
crushing, slicing through
with endless unknown effects
the Holiest mountain stands just out of reach
while you’re stuck below
snagged by thorns piercing everywhere
your mouth firmly rooted in jealousy
held in place by envious boulders
you never once noticed were there
beguiled into thinking you can climb
past the cruelty
past the unsympathetic crime
a devil of a feat to overcome
this shutting off of evil words
slaying your heart and soul for all time
where blackness is the least of magic
driving up from deep below
your mouth moving in a downward spell
the trick behind gossiping
is you thinking it’s harmless
raising the mountain above your own hell
Psalm 15 A Psalm of David.
LORD, who shall sojourn in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell upon Thy holy mountain?
He that hath no slander upon his tongue.
Technically, it’s the commandment stating, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” but it seems to get less attention than, thou shalt not murder or thou shalt not lie. But Yeshuah said, all sins are equal. Like I always say, joking, when someone lies straight to my face and I know it… “You know, you go to hell for lying, same as you do for stealing and murder.” Just my little way of reminding people… all the commandments are equal!
All demanded by GOD!
Not just one or two….
Driving forward, nothing can stop him
With the will of a weed, he will steer
Through the chaos that fills every moment
Squealing tires and melting hearts, with little to no fear
Determined to make a life long remembered
His grip tight and spirit second to none
Taking his life and the world by storm
Transcending the scar of a forsaken son
No doubts trouble his insightful vision
Plowing through problems with ease and grace
His strength growing with each passing year
Determined to conquer and win each race
Shining his light into the darkest of realms
His fire for life a rare maternal element
Blinding en masse as his journey unfolds
His passion leads him to complete fulfillment
He will make each of his dreams happen
He’s a supernova just waiting to explode
Coupled with traits such as will and desire
Nothing can stop him or veer him off road
I feel like I may have been a little harsh in my last post.
But as usual, I never think before I post.
It just spills out of me sometimes. I felt, while writing it, like Yeshuah was angry, and wanted to make a point. Don’t get me wrong, it was all me, because I have yet to hear Him speak to me. You will not hear me say out loud, ever, that “God Told Me…” and go on with something I made up. I truly love God, as my Father, and Yeshuah as his arm, or branch, or the Son of YHVH, THE All Mighty One.. I could go on and on… He takes care of me. But despite many prayers for Him to speak to me, it hasn’t happened…yet!! But, for some reason yesterday I just felt like Yeshuah should say something, as the poem oozed out of me. I’m guessing it was the Ruach Hakodesh, the Holy Spirit. I think sometimes it prods me on like a poker to a horse…get moving old girl, He says…. lol But, no; yesterday I was just feeling feisty.
This other part of me… just wants to yell at people. Have you ever felt like that?? You just want to strangle people! Seriously, I’m in fear of becoming a serial killer. lol I’d be the Cherrieo’s Killer, due to my gf calling me Cherrieo’s; I in turn call her Corn Flakes, due to her being a bit ditzy sometimes.
Take the moron at work this am that was a proud racist, and smarted off to me about it…. but tucked his head in shame as he ducked out the door. This was right after I told him, “Uh, no…” at this point I make a big ‘no’ face, like I’m speaking to a kindergartner, “sorry, but we’re NOT RACISTS here, so we’ll have NONE of that kind of talk!” He left smiling, because I was smiling, but he understood at that moment in time, he was so wrong! He was not in a world that still lives in the 80’s.
I truly hope he thought about it for a while, ducking his head like he did, I know he was ashamed of himself… but if I hadn’t stopped him… he would have continued on for the rest of his life, thinking it was ok to make comments like that. Sometimes I wonder, if it only takes ONE TIME, before the embarrassment can alter ones’ open aggression and the self-centered-self-righteous bullshit they’ve concocted to convince themselves that they are better than someone else! Hell, they actually think they are better than a whole group of people who are different than themselves.
Anywho…. today I’ll try to post something lovely… everyone loves puppies and springtime!
why would you deny Me, your loving Father
I offered you eternity, long before your life would end
you saw it coming
you know it’s inevitable
still proudly you refuse to believe and bend
full of stubborn selfishness
a scholar of men, thinking science proves you right
yet you can’t explain
what little you do see
let alone ignoring what you witness each night
quoting what you call greats
forgetting the Holiest One, your philosophies wax and wane
they explain little
only what you think
revealing the multitude left to explain
being humble isn’t in your nature, you say
but I created humanity to be humane, gentle yet strong
not to be proud
not to be self-righteous
but self-sacrificing as devoted servants belong
giving to one another, sharing every needed thing
your reason for life is to love Me and one another
keeping all souls as your own sister and brother
so don’t bother praying now at your life’s end
its useless, for your time to serve has long since passed
you chose wrong
you wasted your life
and I, Yeshuah, have found you empty and unchaste
OK… so I’m going to be upfront here… I’m cheating!! LOL These are all pictures I took in the past, but when the prompt came up “Mirror”, well, I just had to pull up some of my favorites! I love a good reflective shot! They should be postcards, don’t you think?
I snuck a few oddballs in too, just for fun.
Hope you enjoy my mountains!
Romeo, Twinkie and Sweetheart…
Lil Misster Kitty… before … and now…………. 3 weeks later
NOT ONLY for my four cats who are all dying now, but for the evil neighbor who has poisoned them with rat poison, I think. He needs help…and so do his three daughters and wife, who have to live with him.
The EVIL neighbor, we’ll call him Satan… doesn’t understand … much of anything… but especially the fact that the people who lived there before him had 11 cats, and mine are still trying to claim their territory, doing what they naturally do, pee and spraying all over the place.
I can understand Satan’s frustration, and disgust, not having pets himself, but there are better ways to make my cats stop visiting his home…. like shooting bee-bee’s at their behinds, which only sting, but don’t maim or kill, or do much of anything but run them off. Or he could scare them, putting one of my cat traps in the spot they’re peeing in and trapping them, so I know which one it is…and so it also scares them out of going over there again.
BUT NO… nothing humane … he’s an evil asshole who has poisoned all four of them, with Lil Misster Kitty on deaths doorstep. He went from being a fat little ornery fart, to a skeleton in two weeks, with stuff oozing from his eyes and nose to the point he’s wheezing, losing his hair, not moving … and now the other three are following suit. They’re dying of thirst, which is the first clue to a poisoning with rat poison, not eating, and running fevers. All classic symptoms, which breaks my heart. There’s no way to prove it was Satan, but they make rat poison to taste wonderful, and Lil Misster has always been a greedy eater. Which is why he’s going first, would be my guess.
I want to put them down so they don’t suffer, but it will break my heart four times over…so all I can say is Please Pray everyone, for them and him… and maybe a tiny bit for me. You all know… I love them, I hate them, I love them, I hate them…. and on and on. BUT A CRUEL DEATH like this… NOTHING DESERVES THIS! Well, maybe the neighbor does… still, just say a quick prayer for my kits… at the least, that they don’t hurt! They don’t seem to be in pain, yet, so I’m waiting… hoping now that I’ve locked them inside the house, they might recover. But I think it’s a long shot.
And do add a mention for the evil neighbor, he’s headed straight for hell, a well deserved hell, but maybe if we all pray for his lost soul, we might still save him. (You go first, I’m still thinking about it… hahaha) No.. I’m serious, it’s about loving your enemies… and not flattening his tires… not spray painting his house with the words “MURDERER”, etc… lol Can you tell I’m struggling… I am!
Thanks all, and hope you are all having a Blessed Day!
most likely its my greatest of woes
like climbing a mountain with no toes
or swimming an ocean for a deep breath
what will I do if it means my death
this not forgiving I hold a grudge
double the anger gives me a nudge
greedy parasites cover earth in a mist
and cruelty is at the top of the my list
growing longer than impatience endures
with my peeves flying past in sharp blurs
I stumble repeatedly flailing off a deadly cliff
falling into shit with a miserable whiff
not quite finding the strength to dig on out
I crawl towards the mountain clawing about
while my heart and hands are covered in pain
I’ve given in to an endless reign
of evil and heartache till I’m finally full
rupturing and bursting my only soul
never learning that vengeance is God’s alone
only His to smite from His Holy throne
His soft and gentle blood ran in red rapids
While His torturous death gave me my life
How I ache to become His devoted wife
Sadly I deign to think He’d have me
It’s discerning to learn I can’t repay Him
I’m disgusted my blood is soured and weak
Yet His hope is filling an empty vessel
Dripping in time with each weeping need
Holiness replacing my soul with a lamb
Drowning me until I’m finally freed
Suddenly I’m high with unbelievable spirit
My drumming heartbeat flows into music
For I will always be deemed worthy
Without one single second thought
Someday soon I will be His Adoring Wife
Because His Pure Love Gave Me Life
As His hope is filling an empty vessel
Dripping in time with each weeping need
Holiness replacing my soul with a lamb
Drowning me until I’m finally freed
This photo just cracked me up and made my day!
The Emergency Exit you can waltz around and the sign across the street that says “Dip”, were just too much for me to take.
I’m assuming it applies to the idiot who installed this gate.
Notice the signs on the left that say Peligro and Danger… of what?
My only thought was it must be a gate to Hell!
If you read it “emergency…exit only”, it qualifies!
FUN AT 2200 FT… LIKE NOTHING ELSE ON EARTH…
BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT ON EARTH
WE LIKE A TRIM GLIDER!”
(inside joke, gonna make bumper stickers, this is now my copyrighted catchphrase, thanks to the internet!)
Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning!
What does your morning look like?
“Waddaya lookin’ at?”
Look at his adorable little buck teeth! hahaha
How to harness the light created by the falls… even at dusk…
can only be explained by the Creator.
busy, always so busy
buzzing from one stray thought to another
around a stalk of witless obsession
a deep need filled with perceptions
of life, the edges of a feathered fracture
to tap dance across
on a breeze of easy answers
as life, bored into years of numbness
becomes a drone hovering
you are gliding in emptiness
and your heart has missed its journey
never pausing your flight to wonder why
not even for one slender moment
so long as you are busy,
busy, always so busy
“God’s Version of Cherry On Top”
The Cherry on Top of my mountains still making me smile. Sorry to have to repost this so soon, but I couldn’t resist, with the challenge being Cherry on Top.
When God walked by, the Holy Spirit was seen
swirling with Joy and Hope in the sway of His Being
The truck screeched to a halt to capture this amazing moment in time, my heart beating wildly as I grab the phone and jump out, my only thoughts “wait, wait, wait…” There is no added colors or enhancements to this photo other than turning the brightness down a touch. The clouds were on fire yesterday… just another reason I have to point out to all, that living here is heaven. People say it rains here all the time, but we only say that to deter people from coming here to live. The beautiful town I have lived in for 25 years or so makes me smile every day. You call it a rain forest, I call it heaven. From January to June, it is neon green with new growth on the trees and plants everywhere. From March to October it becomes every shade of neon with Rhodies and Peonies and mountain flowers loose their minds, roses go insane and that’s just a few of my fav’s. And from October to February all the giant leaf Maples and smuggled in Japanese Maples turn from bright reds to orange to yellow. So if you think my world is just green pine trees, rolling across a few XXL hills, you’d be wrong. Even with the overcast clouds, once in a while they are grey and menacing, but for the most part, they’re cool every day. And believe me, I watch those clouds daily, to see what days I’m going to be able to fly! I watch them all the time. And I see patterns from gorgeous giant storm formations to the criss-cross hell of the government planes spraying the sky to reflect the light away from earth. Huge giant plaid sky’s that start out with just one trail of a plane, that should dissipate within 40 seconds or so like a normal contrail, but turns out, it spreads in every direction and is in fact a chem trial, or what they now try to hide by calling them “consistent contrails”. HA! NO SHIT! Chemicals the government is slowly killing us with, making the most beautiful patterns in the sky. I hate them, but the chemicals are making for spectacular sunsets and sunrises. The chemicals take days to fall from the sky, barium, aluminum, silica…whatever they’re poisoning us with, raising the degree of brightness and is magnified in so many of my shots, I am constantly turning down the brightness just to get a shot.
Like God’s Artwork needs any improvements!
DETAILS: God’s way of saying, “Pay Attention.”
OH HELL YEAH!!! Could NEVER have said it so well!!!!!
There are lots of them. When you meet one, here are some things you should say to them or do with them. Full disclosure – I’m not American. I’m not a voter in the election. But there’s this large Republican convention starting tomorrow and I was listening to the radio (a mistake, I know), and like any Canadian I want to be helpful. So this is me, a Canadian, helping Americans by dispensing valuable advice to you that you can in turn use to help Donald Trump supporters everywhere. Please let me know how it goes.
Give them a hug. They need one. They feel like they require Trump, that he is the only salvation they have left. That is how desperate and sad they have become, so please give them a hug to make them feel better. If they refuse to smile, pat them on their butts. Tickle…

His Glory swirls in pure Holiness
blazing with fire and a furious cry
folds of His Mantle awash
rippling with each unbelievable ‘Why’?
His confusion over our choices
tumbling the clouds in the sky
with His Hope peeking through barely
in a pure white slice of die
His Power to lovingly create
or destroy it all from on high
clearly displayed for you
in the Glorious Flames of His Sigh
Life finds a way
in a river
atop a bus sized boulder
with only a few things needed:
and something to hold onto.
In life, to find your way
through the twists and turns
raging falls and calm pools
atop a boulder or under a spell
struggling through some eventual rapids
or floating along peacefully
you only need a few things:
the sunshine God created to grow our world
the pure clean water and food He created
and His Amazing Promise to hold onto.
Everything else is just wind.
there is no black and white
no yellow, brown or pink
there’s only love and hope
no matter what you’ve been taught to think
this lie about color that fills us full
of evil judgment and stupid hate
is just that, an incredibly evil lie
the enemy doth proliferate
trying to drive us further apart
leading us to defile, maim and kill
and worse, back it with the Lord’s name
can all change with just your will
your will to understand we’re all human
your will to promise to love all instead
your will to be accepting and not judge
your will to be stronger than society said
your will to create rather than destroy
your will to stand firm rather than be led
your will to truly follow in Jesus’ steps
ensuring your soul will never be dead
Wake up sheeple, we’re all just Mashed Potatoes and Gravy… all mixed up together!
THE ONLY THING THAT DETERMINES SKIN COLOR IS THE SUN!
If your family lives near the equator, you will have darker skin, to reflect the sun’s damaging rays and protect you from too much Vitamin D absorption.
The need for the right amount of Vitamin D is copied into our DNA and passed down to our children to keep them healthy.
THIS IS THE ONLY REASON WE HAVE DIFFERENT SHADES OF HUMANS!!!
SO WAKE UP ALL YOU IDIOT BIGOTS AND RACISTS!!! WE ARE ALL THE SAME!!!!!!!
do you feel His arms surrounding you
curled in gripping you tight
through the nightmares in your life
never letting go
not once all night
do you hear His calling for you
soft yet echoing in your ear
rising with hope screaming with joy
that insistent loving
voice you hear
do you wonder why He loves you so
as any parent aching with the loss
seeing His children floundering in sin
you are still special
loved at all cost
do you not see how Greatly He Loves
when darkness looses its sickly masks
when you choose the graceful light
forgiveness is sunshine
and trying is all He asks
if I wrote three stories
all about horrible things
what would that say about me
would you think I’m sick and twisted
or in a dark place without escape
so if you read four stories
all about wonderful things
what would that say about you
wanting to read about happy endings
dished up on a plate with whip cream
oh, His eyes
were windows into my soul
an arrow slicing
into the desperate bottom
I had slid to
the faded shame
still circling the edges
of my darkest moment
accenting the distant light
as it floods over the brim
no stone untouched
except the one
I sat upon
wallowing in my own past
His eyes warmed
and I knew His love again
as the light drew nearer
touched my heart
pulling ever pulling
as if a blackbird
stretching the darkness
until it snapped
To be as humble as a simply curled vine
oftentimes creates the most lovely wine
a soft green bud without a gaudy mirror
blocking the view as God draws nearer
blooms in Glory with the touch of His light
never once needing to be special or bright
but in a world where self esteem rules
is awarded and taught in all the schools
becoming all too prideful and self centered
leaves your soul crushed and sadly splintered
for God Alone wants to be all you need
shining on you growing from a tiny tiny seed
giving you strength to stand up on your own
willing the world to bend for you from His throne
filling you with the desire and fire to finish
whatever prayer or goal or ending you wish
FOR THE MEEK WILL ENHERIT THE ENTIRE EARTH
and all you need to know is:
HE’S proud of YOU and HAS BEEN SINCE YOUR BIRTH
be vibrant in all you do
don’t waste your time being dull and blue
when your feet hit the floor
thank God and bounce out the door
when you smile make it wide
none of this fake stuff, half out the side
when you are being kind
unroll all your giving, simply unwind
when you are understanding
take that leap, forget about landing
when you need to be strong
rely on God all the day long
when you shine with hope
others will see and learn to cope
and when you love do it completely
with no judgment, make it unconditionally
Be Love, be Hope,
be Kind, be Flagrant
Be Joy, Be Light,
Be Bright, Be VIBRANT
swaying, mesmerizing, back and forth
the leafless soul dances to life
ripples shimmering light in the tiniest waves
creating the current tune
faces appear to stare at the light
confused by the babbling all around
washing on by with each passing shadow
eyes winking in altered states
pushed and pulled they float away
in a gentle shifting with each rush
while the rootless hangs on, little condos of life,
flood proof and settled in, rock solid
no longer lost in a blurry crowd
a pulse of green to light the way home
show your elegant petals, open wide
no matter how tough or strong
they have a subtle purpose, pad aside
designed to echo a simple song
of love from one singing, to another
where slime creeps trying to belong
a mire of sad souls calling, don’t bother
they just keep singing the same old song
but you are special, in so many ways
not like the scum on the surface
let the ooze of life, seen for all your days
float on by a sludge without purpose
while you are rare, you will remain
strong at heart, beauty hidden inside
ignore the slime, their power will wane
you’ll shine gloriously, they’ll run and hide
silver colored rain splatters upon the ground
spreading out like running sheep
hands flinging fingers open wide
making a point before a beep
muscles pulling the grandest jete
toes reaching the horizon in a leap
the minds of children creating joy
dreaming wildly while sound asleep
the look of new parents in any species
their tears of love uncontrollably seep
or me flying like a majestic bird
making memories I will forever keep
as easily as the trees in the breeze
the simple loves in life
make me weep
I wrote this because a friend and I were discussing how often she cries when people are mean to her. Its part of our job to deal with assholes, but it occurred to me when she said this, that I cry due to joy more often than anything else. Sure, I’m very empathetic and I cry easily if a friend is sad, and I’ll admit I have cried while watching many different types of moves, ie, the Green Mile, Phenomenon, where I bawled like a baby, and even at the end of Armageddon. (more for her losing her father, than for BW dying. lol ) Still for the most part, with mean people, I tend to get very Motherly and put them in their place. Even if I need to yell to do it! lol But my friend has a tender heart, isn’t very tough on the inside, and lets people walk all over her, which is sad, but I think a huge waste of tears. Those who are mean are just assholes, and you just have to let it wash over you, knowing they are miserable and will always be. Not my problem, not me that caused theirs. Simple as that.
But I’ve also learned over the years, it’s hard to teach someone to be strong, when they have no faith to give them strength. People say all the time…. OH I BELIEVE IN GOD… yet they have never once given their problem to God, wholeheartedly believed HE would take care of it, and relaxed back in the peace that this simple surrender will give. BUT YOU MUST HAVE FAITH. You must truly believe HE WILL HANDLE IT… and most people don’t.
They’re all about lip service.
I do it daily. Usually in the morning while I drive somewhere. For some reason God and I do a lot of chatting in my truck. I ask for parking lot angels, idiot angels to keep me safe on the highway from idiot terrourrists, whatever I need, God wants me to ask Him to do it… so I do. And I am peaceful inside, not worrying about anything, throughout most of my day. Some days, yeah, I’m tired, loose my temper and have to shut someone up… but hey, no one’s perfect. lol And God knows me inside and out. He knew I was going to do that. So why get upset, why chastise myself for not handling it right? Nope, I move on. Life is TOO SHORT to worry about the little shit. God knows why I reacted the way I did, and I ask him to forgive me when I know I’ve been wrong.
But folks, all in all, with all the weird problems in my life, I am a pretty happy person!
I find peace daily.
she folded her heart safely inside… no one knew why
simply gentle to a fault
a blossom wavering in the wind
her true colors velvety soft
to the depths of her very soul
still she chose to stand alone… no one knew why
lifting her face to the blue sky
bending just enough in the breeze
arching towards the truest light
understanding the pull in her soul
her heart began to peel open… only He knew why
little blue bits of beauty
settled onto the sand
their days of sailing around the world
over at the wind’s hand
The creativity seen here… is astounding. The wing standing up on this tiny jelly fish lets it ride the waves across the globe. As it rides on the surface of the ocean, the wind blows across it’s little wing and it sails.
Unfortunately, when the wind is fd up, they end up on the beach… dead… by the thousands. They travel in mobs, and these guys were just little babies. An inch to two in length at the most. Maybe just babies, because earlier this year, millions washed up in Oregon, adults, huge for jellyfish, some a foot across and they all died.
They were fascinating to look at, like they had an internal grid-work of electrical signals going on… just like the one in the top of the picture, they were so amazing.
And so, it made me sad to see hundreds of them on the beach dying. Even the birds weren’t eating them, so it was just a mass death for no reason… other than possibly keeping their population under control… still, it made me sad.
and I think the day will begin like this; glorious light, beauty spread wide, birds calling softly in the background while the earth settles into silence. The breeze will taste like springtime, the scents of a million flowers wafting by, while our brains begin to assimilate, our heads lift upward instinctually, searching for answers.
The sound of music, led by trumpets, begins to travel across the sky, matching the path of blazing clouds.
The brightness of His Holiness will blind us, and we will be forced to look away… kneeling… one… by one…
by one… and then we will hear His Voice… His Voice… for the first time…
Hallelujah… I can’t wait…
So, here’s my question for you all today….
Is it possible we can ‘earn’ immortality?
Or… for the other side of the coin; could we ‘evolve’ into it, on our own?
Someone mentioned it, and I can’t stop thinking about it. So here’s my thoughts, don’t forget to share yours.
On the one hand, there is a God, but scripture’s say it is not the deeds you do, it is the love you have inside for God, everything else, everyone else, that gets you into heaven… the eternal mortality that God offers is the goal; the bait; the one thing you do not have here on Earth. You’ve experienced love, been loved (hopefully) by at least one other being in your life, so maybe a new Daddy figure isn’t something you feel you need. But to live forever… FOR EVER? It would be cool and boring, probably at the same time, and if everyone you loved wasn’t immortal, it would be amazing yet incredibly sad. But think about it, if we all lived forever, here on Earth, we would be wall to wall people… the planet couldn’t support us all… it would be much like it is now, with a lot more starvation thrown in. A lot.
But what if immortal doesn’t mean with your current body? What if immortal is impossible with our body?
Would you want it with your soul? Would you want it if they told you your brain went with it?? Or I should say, your mind? How about your heart; your love? Your feelings?? Wouldn’t you need all these things, for immortality to work? So where do our thoughts, feelings and love come from, if not our soul? Our brain tells our lungs to breathe; but what tells your lungs to hold your breath when you kiss? Or swim? Or blow up a balloon? This is your mind, not your brain. This is you… part of your soul. It floods you with warmth when you’re happy, and it chills you when someone you love dies. It rises up to sing with your favorite song. It explodes in your heart when you hold your child for the first time forcing you to cry with joy.
All this … does it go with your soul? Of course. It is your soul. This is what will become immortal with God. You. Your essence. Your entire soul. And from what I hear, you get the coolest set of WINGS to boot! So in some way… they have to be attached to you…. so you must end up with a body of some sort…right???
Now we go to the evolving aspect. It must be possible, somewhere, somehow, because we know how DNA works. Say you’re the one being on a planet who’s DNA alters just enough to where your cells never die, they just recycle themselves in some way… yes you would be the first…
but think about it… out of the BILLIONS of species on this planet, I would guess ALL of them… ALL of them have NEVER ONCE had their genes mutate into immortality. Are WE humans really that special that our DNA would suddenly evolve in a different way than every other species on this planet? If you believe in evolution, you also believe that something had to have seeded this planet with life, ie, bacteria from asteroids…etc.
That being said, literally, anything is possible. We know so little about our lives, our bodies, the world… the universes… it’s embarrassing really. But, we have only been around for about 10,000 years. Compare that to …. frogs… and you’d be blushing again, they’ve been around for over 200 million years…. so lets pick something younger in eon terms… how about a simple rose…. not even close, they’ve been around for about 35 million years… I could go on… my point… we are the youngest species on this planet. With maybe 10 other exceptions, mostly crap our lab tech’s have grown.. that they shouldn’t have!
There are also a few worms, flies and brine shrimp that can all go into suspended animation… the brine can survive up to 10,000 years… add water, and bam, you’ve got brine shrimp… but that’s only suspending life, not living eternally… and well, they’re bugs ya’ll! Bugs! lol they don’t even know what being alive is.
So the chances that we could alter ourselves into immortality is pretty ridiculous. The fact that we don’t even understand HOW our cells know when to change, or why… or what made that protein decide to turn on a switch… folks… we don’t know SHIT! OK! We only know the obvious, and that’s about .0000009% of what we need to know.
So my view is obvious… unless you’re severely slow you’ve figured it out by now… I say, go with God! He’s your best bet at becoming immortal! I truly don’t see us, a bacteria ourselves, evolving into anything as spectacular as an immortal being! But you will never earn it, with good deeds. You just have to LOVE!!! And it’s so easy to love God, and everything and everyone else… try it sometime.
Just go one day… where every single thing you see, every person, dog, flower… from the mailman to the boss you hate every other day… and be kind to them. Show them love. And SEE what happens. Maybe nothing, maybe not… either way, sit back and FEEL what you did.
ENJOY that feeling of peace and happiness that your entire body has been tricked into feeling! Sink into it. Each time you are kind, people usually show you thanks, or love…. each time you reach out and touch someone physically, you are giving love, and USUALLY you will get love back. (now don’t be getting all pervy… lol) JUST TRY IT!!! And you will see… that feeling this way… is the GREATEST thing on earth. Right up there with the immortality you are going to experience!!
