“When life’s sands keep piling up”©

Bottled with time… I contend I’m offended,

for without time I could relax, you see,

not so constrained or confined to its

measurements sure ticking… away with me,

there’d be no minutes or hours to sense

dire to loss or need found in each day,

my breath frosts and lingers through

seasons then warmth restored, I must say…

I never knew reason so well as I do now,

this is felt inside my heart’s walls I do room

but to be able to sweep time away, and all

the sands so consumed, I’d truly need a broom.

Metaphors… my plea for metaphoric glances at life. Is there a way to bottle wisdom or see we have held the bottle of thought longer than we’d benefit from it? I find humor is best to take off the pressures this life throws at us… and necessary from time to time (pun intended) to strike out with something humorous- and yet meaningful. Therein, we need not build a bottle to contain ourselves in or obscure our life’s measure to something built by our own hands or time we’ve taken, especially away from things and people we claim are important to us. Be thankful this day, Thanksgiving Day (in the US) Nov. 27th, 2014, for friends you have… family counted as blessings and the time to recognize them for the specialness they have and share with us- friends and family are true treasures we should be able to appreciate.

Why is it when leaders of either party, in the

U.S.,want people to follow they quote scripture,

as if to say what they are doing meets all

the criteria for God, now it’s a firm fixture?

We, as God’s people, need to see this for

what it really is… the wool over our eyes…

no shock here when our leaders would

play us all for fools– to our sudden surprise,

as if to say they do what they do with God’s

blessing, having followed instruction so well

but to look at the panoramic view of their actions

takes away from what they’ll sooner tell:

on migration and amnesty, of defense(?) or mis-

directed offense (loss of life away from the levant)

and support of life taking abortion… and God is

alright with this… the genie to choose a savant,

when we leave American Citizens, unchallenged,

to rot in an Iranian prison… and ‘Talks continue’

unabated, but this is alright with God and us…

to wrestle free the thief and test our own sinew?

What is this to be… a continuation of our disgrace

being done by those claiming to be our own…

our own what (?)… what have we become doing the

opposite of what the Founding Father’s have sown?

“the best way to prevent violent extremism is to work with the Muslim American community – which has consistently rejected terrorism – to identify signs of radicalization, and partner with law enforcement when an individual is drifting toward violence.”

Ezekiel 14:7 KJV For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the LORD will answer him by myself:

Is not the measure a man grants to another

his treasure, so treasured to be called his gain?

There is not enough hate to be found unless

continuously sought for… to reach out from pain,

this selflessness is gained when without due sight

one comes forth from the heights or depths known,

here is found, quite clearly in our sight, what values

can be seen by us all… where the heart is then shown,

so exposed… there is no turning back, headlong in

to thickets and brambles or to plant on cleared land,

the treasure of a man’s heart speaks volumes to the

world at large, so small, when we strike with our hand,

raise up the mountains of thought… of hope, raise

them to the heights sought for… for glories unknown,

seek power for power’s sake at the loss of another

and when planted… this is the treasure we’ve grown.

What was really accomplished here, by Isil beheading someone converted to Islam… and sympathetic to the people of the region, to allow us to see tolerance is a measure we should (or could) afford another human being? Extremism for right or wrong reasons still pits humanity against humanity. There is a difference between blowing up a clinic to stop abortion and using a bomb to kill as many innocent people as you can… and both are equally senseless acts of extreme thought.

If truth is what religion offers humanity to improve our condition and offer this same hope to all mankind… why lie about it? I show the truth (in love) to those unaware this exists to cause one to question why this is offered as truth! There is no balancing a lie and the truth… it is either one or the other!

TAKIYYA:Takiyya is defined as dissimulation about ones Muslim identity.Islamic Sharia Law provides, “When it is possible to achieve an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and lying is obligatory if the goal is obligatory.” (Reliance of the Traveler, Para r8.2) Examples include lying to protect Islam or a Muslim.

TAWRIYA: Tawriya is defined as concealing, and it could be called “creative lying”.

Suppose someone protests that Surah 1 of the Quran demeans Christians and Jews, because it is a supplication Muslims make to Allah seventeen times a day to keep them from the path of “those with whom God is angry” and “those who have lost their way”. A Muslim might respond, “Surah 1 never mentions Jews or Christians.” He is practicing tawriya, because while Surah 1 does not mention Jews and Christians by name, but he knows full-well that the words “those” refer to Jews and Christians.

KITMAN Kitman is characterized by someone telling only part of the truth. Often, kitman results in a gross distortion of the truth. In the example given, the Quran uses jihad and its derivatives 59 times. Of those, only 16 (27%) could be considered “internal” with no object as the target of the struggle based on the context of the surah.

Another common form of kitman is to quote only the few peaceful passages from the Quran, knowing full-well that that passage was later abrogated by a more militant, contradictory verse. Here is an example:

“There is no compulsion in religion” (Surah 2:256) Early Medina

“Are they seeking a religion other than Allah’s, when every soul in the heavens and earth has submitted to Him, willingly or by compulsion?” (Surah 3:83 Later Medina)

MURUNA:  Muruna means using “flexibility” to blend in with the enemy or the surroundings. The justification for this kind of deception is a somewhat bizarre interpretation of Surah 2:106, which says, “If we abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We will replace it by a better one or similar.” Thus, Muslims may forget some of the commands in the Quran, as long as they are pursuing a better command. Muslims striving to advance Islam, therefore, can deviate from their Islamic laws in order to cause non-Muslims to lower their guard and place their trust in their Muslim counterpart.


In Iraq today

Please understand what was done to the Jews by Hitler is being done today in Iraq, by Isis, see the mark (to signify those that follow the Nazarene… Jesus Christ) left as an insult and to: harassintimidatedemeandemoralize and instill fear. As the world pushes ‘tolerance‘ under ‘political correctness… an oxymoron,’ there is none given to those of a different faith by Isis (or Isil). Now this image is being worn throughout the world (by christians) in a show of support and to signify unity. An Arabic ‘N’ is now a symbol to unite christians around the world! See above…

When one thinks hate… what is it that comes to mind? To truly give a broad definition to it is to first understand ‘hate is directional,’ directed against someone or something detested for: what it is, who it is or something associated with a class or group of people. To go beyond the boundaries of thought to actions taken… this is where hate lives and thrives. Hate crimes (typically) involved violence… motivated by thoughts against whom there exists thoughts being against those hated, or reactions to them, and hate does cause it. Hate crimes and War crimes are very similar, for there is an action taken to the thoughts of extreme prejudice.

In Nazi Germany… it was the Jews, and today, in Iraq, it is… the christians. Look below to the signs of hate then and now. Then it was the Jewish people… and now the Arabic ‘N’ signifies association with ‘The Nazarene… Jesus Christ.’

“Standing at the tomb of the Unknown soldier”©

I stand here to honor you,

and yet they say you are unknown

but I knew you well,

you’ve never been unfamiliar,

you were the American that

would stop to help a stranger,

the hand to feed the hungry,

the one to offer aid to the widow,

sharing your time with an orphan

and visiting the sick or the dying.

I stand now because of you…

that you should care for me,

I am the unknown…

the one you never saw

but knew I’d be here…

thanking you all the same,

and I can only give you the

respect I can offer by:

caring for my country,

not trying to be better than

the next but showing the next

to be better than I am,

sharing the reason you died

was to ensure I would live…

and live freely and

for us all to know without

the party across the aisle

there is only a one party system…

no different than China.

Freedom does not come without bravery and loss... our own.

“When the door opens the bag is on fire”©

From within the vacuum… the empty,

the nothing, where nothing else exists

but the yawning wait and the torturing

hell of destruction that descends on all

those tasting war… the suck, the space

and time between the implosion and the

explosion lasting seconds to years… as it

is all subjective and relative at the

same time, the faceless enemy of the

mind at wait… to wander the wasteland

of moment, either moments before or

moments after… the where dragged to

here years later like a fresh kill

in the teeth of a war-dog wagging his

tail expecting a pat on the head from a

job well done… the one that wakes up
in cold sweats during the middle of the

night… in the middle of December from

the middle of the war, standing

amidst the ruin of another human’s

wasted society… where civilization took

a back seat to humanity and dropped a

bag on fire before ringing the door bell.

[ I saw the movie “Jarhead” for the first time the other night… and this

is attributable to the sentiment and reaction to the movie, the war and

the whole damn thing. ]
