First Responder

We slowly unfurl clenched fists one finger for each fear held tight unwinding the cord in release we breathe in and slowly exhale the poisoned air one more finger loose and free and then another stretching into the eternity that we see before us. We know we need it to be this way, open hands […]

Homeless in the U.S.A..

DETROIT (WWJ) – They’re trying to make a point about poverty. The Detroit Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) Poor People’s Campaign has set up 25 tents now occupied by homeless people, northeast of downtown Detroit. Some suburbanites headed to grand opening concerts at Detroit’s Little Caesar’s Arena this week noticed the encampment, on Mt. Elliott…

is it Possible!

Two important men, well, they could easily have been women, but for brevity purposes  i am using the term “men”, they made more unhealthy decisions than women, well their pride won’t allow them to admit it, but is it possible, they are having a discussion on the Topic of “Love”, well it’s possible but in the context of the conversation, there two men are in the senate building in Washington, and they are drawing up a list of the threats to the world, and one of them mentions to the other, “do you think love would be any help at all?”, can she make bombs, no answers the other, does she spread propaganda, no, does she keep all the loot for herself, has she any place in a war, usually not, only in the ending of it. They reluctantly agree, love might have a role to play in the world after all.

Scheming demon having a bad day, super secret plans are all unfolding, another outbreak of truth, this is not going the way it’s supposed to, they look at the sky, there is a bunch of them, i thought we cut off the connection years ago, well it had certainly gotten weaker. The boss looks at one of them, you, was it you who had a change of heart, no reaction, goes to another face, was it you, was it you, this goes on till he

comes to the last one, himself, certainly not you.

A storm turns around and heads in the other direction, is it possible, Solomon wondered what they must be thinking, the Great Spirit was not a dreamers invention, and The Holy Spirit was proof of Godly interventions, it also put great emphasis on the wisdom of old, and how much of what was written, had come true. Is it possible!.+

Sources of Wisdom

It was a spiders web, so many connections you just can’t escape it, wisdom. Solomon was listening to an old prophet, the music from his lips the mood of his heart, he recalled to himself as he listened, that the wisdom of ancient scripture was just as described, the problem was, that those passing on the religious message got lost in their thoughts, assuming them knew it better than those they were meant to serve. It wasn’t a criticism, it was just a human fact, and it gave further credence the old words of Jesus, the principle of being born again, relearning and getting a better understanding of what we thought we knew.

The absolutists thought that what they knew was it, and failed to pass on, the news, wisdom was a healthy tree a healthy river that kept on delivering. Every day was a source of wisdom, the songs on the radio, the newspaper headlines, it was all connected. He listened to music 50 years old, and what the prophet was saying, was more true now, than when the song was first written. So what sources of wisdom did you come across today, it was a question everyone ought to have asked themselves, at least once a week.

A young man in North Korea is the ultimate dictator, he wants to hold on to power at home, so starts a panic away from home, reminding his subjects, see what i can do. On a more simplistic level, perhaps we should have thought about such problems long before it came to this, seriously. well at least the neighbors were getting the three in the morning warning, did we actually help this guy!

Chinese takeaway

He can’t be serious, have you seen what he is doing, the Japanese will never allow it, take it away from him, can you imagine if there is an accident, what happens if the technology fails, what then. In Beijing the counsel of wisdom meets, the alarm bells are going off, a rather impatient man has a hand that is in reach of the panic button, he is known to react, the odds are long but the results would be a disaster. A lone figure speaks, a man they banished to the side many years ago, an old timer. He stands before them.

We could control his father he tells them, but this young man, he does not understand, one error and the whole of china could be ruined, have you thought about that.

In the annals of history, life and death often resided around the actions of one man, the world of the tyrant is evidence of it everywhere, the names don’t need recalling, they are in every history lesson. Some say there are too many of us.

Solomon imagined the conversations going on in some far off places, then remembered, the words of the old master, how a bad man with a good reputation was the most dangerous of all. It is so easy to massage the minds, well, if he is doing it it must be okay. The world was and is going in some strange directions and the signs were everywhere, it was time for wisdom, time for a Chinese takeaway.

Days later, the young dictator is removed, everyone breaths a sigh of relief.

All about me….

there is nothing more important than me, my pain my discomfort my career my health, so why should i care about you, this life is all about me. Every morning the mirror, she counts the grey hairs, only twenty and going grey already, must change my shampoo.

It gets me going, makes me want to get out of bed, how else would i cope without it, it’s what i need, the first drink, the first pill, the first peak at the likes and dislikes board. heard it say, so and so had 50,000 followers, another had half a million, another had over a million, followers, the new term for friendship some used. Well, did any of them know each other, no.

Solomon recalled the old words, spoken by Jesus, they didn’t know me, but knew of me. It was one way of saying it, having eyes that see but see nothing at all, only me.
