“Light comes by understanding”©

Leave a comment

One cannot cull light from light…
there is not just one God but I do
believe we are all created in the
image of God, The God so true
to His creation He would take on
the form of His creation and give
of Himself… to complete the will
of His Father, so all men can live
freely in the abundance of God’s
understanding, damned for what we
might come to think… by our own
biases, just to look up… sooner see
His creation is the one we live in
and not ‘we live where we create,’
the emphasis needs to be on God
first, to wisdom God does predate.

To think there is only one God… is to fit what mankind knows about God (all of it) in a box. The Christian God (The Hebrew God) is bigger than this, and there is no box big enough to contain Him. It is only left in the hands of men, thinking they have it right, that would attempt to: constrain and constrict the view of any man (making them less than they are)… or what God has done on our behalf already (making God less than He is).

The idea for this piece came from something disturbing, unsettling, heard at the funeral services held for Muhammad Ali. There would be an out and out relay of misinformation to think or believe otherwise. Not to fathom or flounder from sure intention expressed when… “by any means necessary” is heard. There can be many things said when ‘signifying’ is used to overt attention to the carefully chosen words expressed as being something else… as intended. By any means necessary sounds like a directive in a time of war.

Is this a 'common' perception?

When an atheist gets it… why can’t we?

If you are going to be fearful, afraid or to have fear, it is better to be afraid of truth than to yield to a lie.
Russell D. Holder

When Orlando was attacked, and it turned into one of the largest attacks on US soil¹ (since 9-11… by an extremist), we must sooner realize it is not just who was attacked (if a message is there or not) but that Americans were attacked and by a religious belief being the motivating factor. It does no one any good to deny the truth of what happened or perceive it differently than it is. I seem to remember the mantra for justifying going to war in the Middle East… “let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories… ,” and this was said before any came out.

The FBI, ATF and NSA are all Federal agencies which should have stopped the Orlando shooter from obtaining the firearms he used. Procedures for one under surveillance (already) were allowedor not acted on properly. The first responsible party is the government in this atrocity. I don’t trust an underhanded pitch on this unclassified problem either. If ‘E Pluribus Unum’ is to be true [From Many One] we’d need to come together as Americans before we can undo the UN policies taking us down! Let us also remember Chris Stevens peaceably (Sept. 11th, 2012). If we are sending our young (and we are) to fight ISIS (first word in the acronym is Islamic)… when will we act like it on our own soil?

Here is another post I wrote… and see if you can gauge the truth for yourself?

It is more important that we pray for Muslims, that their eyes would be open to the truth of their own actions [killing people in the name of their religion… their god], and to see saying nothing about it is then to condone it. When you pray… pray with the love you have found Jesus Christ has for you. His grace is enough to cause you to want to start this as He died for all mankind, even those that would do us harm thinking they are doing it right.

This is being added to this piece, [date] June 20th, 2016, as the statement from the FBI… the same government agency with Mateen being under surveillance. What were they waiting for, and how does this allay the families hurt by the loss of their loved ones? Why did the application for gun purchase go through? If this can happen with government awareness to a ‘possible situation’ developing, is this demonstrative of: humanitarian, neighborly or openhandedness on the part of the government or the shooter?

To add insult to injury [hasn’t enough been enough already?], the FBI changes its mind and then offers up the full (whole) transcript of the 9-11 call. See it and the barest responses to this tragedy (here) in their hands- only to drop the ball.

Second point… If the American people were dead-set against President Carter, for his handling of the US hostages in Iran, then the same principles of engagement (how we hold one responsible for the actions of those subordinate to the President) should also apply to President Obama- this is happening here under his watch. Could we then find this same beneficence coming from Hillary?

Images from the days of the ‘Iranian hostage crisis’ are found here.

With the knowledge of the Democratic sit-in (going on), to take a stand for gun control changes, in the wake of the Orlando experience with Islamic terrorism or muslim extremists. To respond to this without realizing the primary responsible party was the one giving approval of this extremist, converted and failing to show humanitarian acts and clear signs of the peacefulness sought… due to being radicalized, to gain access to the weapons used came from our own government. We enabled him to harm our own. We can (and should) do better than this. This happened under a Democratic President [on his watch] just like the event of 9-11 happening under the reigns of President Bush [on his watch], and allowed Dick Cheney to take command of the military response- which never happened… told to stand down. This makes this sit-in for gun control… seem like there is an indifference to our protection and just what would they protect when they have nothing to do it with? #Sit-in-stupidity-in-motion

“A new eStore is on the horizon… ‘InkedVo’ is coming soon!”©

As you are well aware here, of my failed attempt of having the first eStore up and running (Inkedvocabulary.com™) my second go-round will be more inclusive and uplifting. My store name will be called “InkedVo” but I’m going to keep the Inkedvocabulary.com™ as my brand name only- this will not be a website or dot-com to run to. I’m setting things in place to have ‘Etsy’ as but one location… here I’ll be able to sell my designs on and will include: messages to uplift the spirit, sources of laughter, a viewpoint to raise awareness to something important or see things differently than you did a moment ago.

I’m going to keep you posted here but intend on being able to sell my eBooks (in a digital download), clothing and apparel… mugs, carrying bags- merchandise of a notable interest. InkedVo will be soon upon us… and heart to heart.

Proof of meeting Muhammad Ali!

 

What does one remember
about one that is unforgettable?
Is it considered life changing…
is it to be a moment memorable?
This is what happened to me
and Muhammad Ali, a cook in ’82,’
and a western restaurant, named
Calamity Jane’s, a story quite true,
He was going around the country
raising money for charities by fight,
this occurred in Stockton, California,
the fight… the U.O.P. campus night
left few restaurants left open when it
was all over… the entourage hungry
but some were left fuming when they
found their checks not honored, angry
at Muhammad Ali… thinking he should
be given the check for all to go and eat,
some nerve and verve to imagine his
opponent was not the only thing to beat,
all issues aside… to talk with Muhammad
Ali for fifteen minutes I will never forget…
there was a softness to what he said and
shared, heart to heart, nothing left unfelt.

These thoughts I share with you are from the personal experience I had by meeting Muhammad Ali (Jan 17th, 1942- June 3, 2016), cooking dinner for him, talking with him and can back up what I’m saying (as truth) with his autograph coming from this moment I’ll never forget. By losing him with us… we have just lost a little of who we are ourselves.

The raised voice and speech,” … a phony, a phony,” is heard

but a bit hypocritical is this epiphany, to point and fire… a canard,

Hillary’s own foisted antics palmed off on the people ‘true blue’

to see red and the ‘red states’ to turn blue, tighten up the screw

on those thumb devices… the ‘Blackberry Media’ gone awry,

and let us all take solace knowing she’ll be there if we’d cry!

I like her ‘truthfulness’ and knowing she (fully) supports abortion

like President Obama, YEAH- Planned Parenthood-wink distortion,

or the ‘Clinton Foundation lobbied by criminals’ and then aided…

and then her ‘branding’ is just an illusion, a mirage left us faded,

or is it the ‘stand against Christians‘ in the Middle East and chides

or the bettor, us (unsung) or shadow bankers (known) who decides.

There can be no such thing as transparency, when it is thought of (open eyes and brain engaged), in this Hillary Campaign for the President’s job. If I cannot trust her with emails… and she wants me to trust her with ‘the Oval Office?’ This is not really where I intended to take this piece of writing to but… which was worse- now the option of bad and (even) worse appears before my eyes? I’d like to thank the ‘American Media’ for most of our woes… running like a rapid dog with a juicy bone in its mouth: with Hillary support (denying ‘Classified’ damage… less coverage), turning out against ‘the Donald’ (for altering what was said… rendering it what was stated he said) and the ongoing attempts to deny our own (ugly) past (much like the Media subjected us to focus on racial concerns [by wedge issue] to the events in Ferguson). Finally, I close this with (of course… another New York Post article),”How Obama has turned back the clock on race relations,” or this one.

I guess we “left no room for anyone else!”

 

I hope there’s room for one more… don’t you?

What ‘bugs’ you: emails, cigars or conceit?

‘People’s Health’ … nice they cared!
