The extended family..

It’s working, the bills are paid, the family are getting older, time to make homes for themselves, soul in soul out, the new members joining, how will we all get on.

The war hawks, glad for any conflict, it pays the bills, a new business in town, more to visit, more anxiety, more weapons to sell, the last minute thing, well, word is, with proofs, there are signs, and they are not from us, the intelligence chiefs look at each other, a threat like this, they never bargained on Jesus, and the truth of the Gospels, heady stuff, what plan can take care of that.

Draw the picture, a version of expansion where there is no where to expand to. It does not work. The family unit, or community, people united, common purpose, the core thought, peace, let the wars of old never be allowed to find roots again.

The disunity, there are those who are extreme, forcing their opinion, violently too, the means of war, false news, the tactic, turning people against each other, well, they know the history, it’s easy find someone to argue with, poison is easy to express.

The suitor is introduced, father does the checking, who is this, what are the past, what are your backgrounds, politically speaking, it’s easy to stretch yourself, people are known for going too fast.

Take your time, the voice says.

The Impostor

The pied piper, the tune sweet, always enriching, something original, they catch the cloud. The light thoughts bring light and light opens up the opportunities. The study of the man, reveals more, they follow the piper, who knows the tune, the crowd is bigger, or the changes become more obvious, others decide to sneak into the group, there is capital in this, or a drifting soul needs rest, overhears them plotting or learning, it’s for good purpose, joins the other group, safety in numbers, easier to hide among the wolves, so the story goes, the impostor, learns, the impostor finds rest, when the impostor becomes the “real thing”, the impostor then tells the story, of how he or she made it, and explains the story, of the great troubles, the “Spirit” had in holding it together, while informing the world, of the lesser ones, who tried to claim ownership of it all, amen.

Solomon sighed, Saul was on the road, Damascus, the blinding light, the voice of the Almighty, why are you doing this, Paul is now Saul, he turns it around, and starts doing the real work, it was just a case of direction, amen.

The foreigner arrives, the air of suspicion, one of us, or, is he like those who betrayed us before. It takes awhile for the trust to be earned, and then he becomes a better version of those he chose to be like; a real conversion, from outsider to the inside, amen. Judging, be wise, amen.

Finding Space

accommodation is the issue, space, the relationship needs time, the head needs space, so much energy about, the ideas appear out of nowhere, darn, finding space, where do you go. The Golf professional, don’t blame him for playing golf, blame him for trying to teach it. She is on the back swing, stop, stop stop, she looks at him, horrified, I’m paying him for the lessons, now he is trying to take charge of me, she is used to getting her own way. That scowl she wears, he is used to it, same as any teacher, once she gets it, she will be praising him later, like the prophets of old. Space he says, you need to have space for the swing to come down. imagine your sweeping the kitchen he says, and.. kitchen she thinks, i have a maid to do all that, he wonders what to say next, finding the words, space.

The stuff, it’s so much to chose from. The teacher recommends this, the parents expect that, she has her own ideas, it’s confusing, she wants to please them all, or not to offend them, they all do their best. I’ll dwell on the moment, she remembers the film, the pretend surgeon who is asked for his opinion, he defers of course rather than risk harm to the innocent patient. Films and stories, what a great idea. She makes a list of great films of the older era, where character was built up, not bought, there must be lessons in them all, she smiles, she will never have a dull thought again, and she has worked out how to find space, or fill the vacuum in other words.

Later she reads a report, how the career changes up to eight times in a lifetime, it makes her think, general education, then the specifics, the maturity that comes with it, the matter solves itself, patience.

Solomon was in the temple, talking with a friend, very deep into the pilgrimage, the need to stretch the interest, so Solomon thought. Jesus told stories to explain things, and writers have been doing it ever since, learning with story. The lesson he said, is to watch the film,. not to critique it, that will come later. Many were afraid to look beyond their own gate when it came to understanding God Most High, in short, they were undermining their space, limiting their understanding, as if east or west, north or south was fixed; it only appeared fixed, it all depending on your starting position.

The preacher smiles, another way to explain things. he was trying to keep the teaching fresh, amen, space in other words, to express the divine word. The Gospel of John he sighed, as he turned out the light, amen.

Awareness of Jesus

There is hardly anyone alive on the planet, who is not aware of Jesus. There are many, who live the words, the words of Jesus, are living, they are alive, as in, you practice them, it’s not complicated, and the image, that accompanies these words, were the results of, well, belief is a gift, and when you are ill, or under duress, you move from the lower spirit to the upper Spirit, immediately you begin to feel better. Jesus does not curb ambition, Jesus points you, to life giving ambitions rather, amen.

The New Confirmation and Communion

Solomon sighed, it was turning about, the Titanic on it’s second voyage, the iceberg missed again, like that space rock that shaved the earth. A new form of confirmation and communion.

Let it be the Parents who take the pledge before God, they being the ones used to the fibre food as they call it, rather than putting robes on children, amen.

How many would love to see that?

In Rome, there is delight, at last, a view that helps alienate the extreme thinkers, amen.

You are not supposed to be miserable, your made to be happy, amen.

Young Girl

Away from the crowd, not able to mix that well, cooped up, the voices on TV, she wants to be like the others, instead her thoughts become insular, what is happening to me. The break out, a new friend arrives, in the form of an angel, her life is turned upside down, the door to her life opens, the Spirit escapes from the cage, hope, she sighs, that’s the feeling, new friends, the world no longer one filled with fear, on the loose, she has dreams, the nice things, even the sensuous thought, she is coming to life, as a flower opens to the sun. amen.

You don’t hide a lamp under the bed, the words of Jesus. The lamp being the light of Spirit.

The nervous feeling, a friend is calling, while alone a friend is thinking good of me, the never alone again feeling, she can relax and be alone, she is patient, there is a life out there, and the she is now a part of it, how to get out, she knows it’s just a question of time, amen.

Size Matters

Hilarious, the lady laughs, I can fit into the size 16, it’s just a number, nothing more, a pointer to other, more pressing matters, and the need to have an awareness, that there are issues, depending on the size of a nation or an ego. yes, it sounds like a male thing, it sounds like a man thing, but when it comes to cleaning up, clearing the debris of your life’s existence, when you will have to contend with the eternal stuff, the size matters thingee will really matter, did i really do all that stuff, great if the account is the right one, and not the other.

Examples are all over, the ease of which, what might seem appropriate in one place, might be altogether out of context in another. The size of the nation, the wider the thinking, the more dangerous it can become, depending on what your resources are, the steady hand at the tiller. As evidenced in places, as displayed by some so called politicians, the ability to apply, what you do at home standards, to what happens in others places, is often the coming together moment, that leads to extremism finding roots, that are usually, a disaster. Take the chief of a ntion, where there is a movement towards a more liberal set of freedoms, how those on the extreme, try to exploit the opportunity, and there are examples of it everywhere.

So size matters, your at the shop, you have been on the exercise bike, the jeans look swell, there is a smile on the face, the accessories that you can use, the stuff in the closet you can take out to wear, in short, the options increase. Size matters.

In terms of Spirit, where there is much of it, the options are equally there, the choices, good ones, exist, like the car in the car park, sometimes, smaller is better, as to say, you don’t have to squeeze into the space, and more room for others to exist. In Spiritual terms, when you widen the definition of “The Almighty God”, in that there are many versions of it, depending where you live, the wider the definition in terms of compassion, the easier it is for life to exist, in peace, so to say it in short terms, size matters amen.

A Father with many children, has to think of the welfare of many, the person thinking of themselves, well, is not thinking of others, so the size of the ego matters too!..In this time, when conflict appears to happen in bunches, think before you take advantage of the situation, the cloud with the picture is real, amen.

Domestic Freedom

From behind, the ribs, she feels the pain, falls over, he kicks her on the ground, she tries to cover herself, wants to scream, the children, she fears for them, his face flares, he is all red, the intend meaner, he is getting his kicks, has a, then the door bursts in, caught red handed, he looks at the uniforms, we have him cold they say, while she whimpers in a heap, am I saved she thinks.

The charge sheet, the daily rounds, who has been at it, the fear some try to sow, is about to rebound on them, the eternal chief is not surprised, it’s been a long time coming, freedom from domestic violence, and fear ends, good night.

Solomon sighed, what a boat full of news, what a delight, this is wonderful, apart from the heavenly truth, the Gospels shown to be the map of discovery too, proof of Jesus and the Holy words, imagine those who will inflict harm on the Spirit, let the righteous be successful amen.

We need more love cries a voice, the crowd looks around at itself, love, where is it gone, gone shouts another, what shouts the others, Love, only a sneering man laughs in the corner, love he screams, then his voice cracks up and he falls over, a woman shouts, I found it, they look, a light filled Jesus comes down the path, amen.

Books

Books, the essential, books, bucks, no matter how you spell it, books, the people of the book, more bucks, books, the banning of books, risque books, books for this, books for that, books, more books, libraries full of them, books, books what are they about, books, did you read that one, books, more books, books burned in the bonfire, more books, we all have a favorite, books, why the books, is there a reason, for all these books, and what are in them, the pause, whats in the books of eternal life, books are they the same, some just excite, free the mind, send you on a trip, books, the way to ease the mind, books, the simple matter, the space inside, while you read them, amen. In world too technological at times, the need for books, read them, use them to concentrate, sacrifice time, use it as a penance if you want, but read them, your mind will be glad of it, and that’s the way to get really relaxed, turn off the stress today, read a book.

Is the mind tired, are you in pain, can’t get over it, the mind gnawing away, rest in the words of a great author, the apostles, John,. by words, listen to the word today, amen. How can you form a relationship with someone, without trying to read about them, the Holy Books.

Solomon revisits the past

Purely for love and no other reason I do these things for you without condition I humbly ask you my dear lord To open the hearts of all those closed Purely for love and no other reason
I told her I loved her she asked me why I tried to explain she started to cry Her tears were real we both embraced Purely for love and no other reason
I humbly ask The Lord for some direction, I remember the hearts of all those broken,The families split up, children are crying,Purely for love and no other reason
I started to sing my song went like this,Keep us together forever may it last, Stay with me and make me strong, Purely for love and no other reason
The days unfold like sheets of wind, Blowing across this difficult world, Soothe the soul and make us kind, Purely for love and no other reason
My health is weak but my heart is firm, I try my best I believe in my Lord, Sometimes it works sometimes I cry,Purely for love and no other reason

Solomon smiled, the rhythm is alive, as is the Heart inside, the changes in this world, like the cloud, they come, and then they depart, may we listen to the old words, and slow it all down, this ambition we call life, amen.
