Visions Revisited October 20, 2020
This is a revised previous post.
My writing includes a lot of what I call historical perspective. I include this because I believe we have for some reason(s) forgotten that we are children of God and He has given us choices for our destination(s) in Life and after. Certainly, however, as I have written, God does ensure our ability to prosper by infusing our World with Spirits of certain abilities or likes or dreams. Certainly, We have in common the ability to care for and share with one another in order to, as I say it, bring about God’s Kingdom.
We have been given, along with this Spirit, a mind which I believe perceives both good and bad, good and evil. We make decisions based upon this, our thoughts and how an action may be judged by other living creatures, especially other humans, and ultimately God. We even speak of things like ‘karma’ or ‘what goes around comes around’ as a way of suggesting an action may be taken based upon a judgement by others and/or God during Life. But what all of this does is keep us on track or the path to God’s Kingdom which may be in afterlife, Heaven, or as I believe, one day, here on Earth, thus eventually both. One of the best God given ways to improve a life, society, and the World is, in my opinion, Visions.
Vision: Intelligent foresight; A mental image produced by the imagination; The mystical experience of seeing as if with the eyes the supernatural or a supernatural being; To see in or as if in a vision. The American Heritage Dictionary, New College Addition 1976
Vision is to me a God given ability to aid in perceiving, understanding, and reacting to His World, Our World, learning and improving yourself and wellbeing. It is spatial and colorful. Vision(s) I believe can come from and are interpreted by the mind or imagination or they can be Divine. Dreams I believe are similar. I believe all people and most likely animals have visions. Both as a result of a thought process of variable length, the mind’s eye, and/or Divine. It is a way of communicating, and often the way new things are begun or old things improved upon. It conveys or helps convey ideas. Like dreams, they help one communicate with one’s self. They are a very powerful and important aspect of Life and can contribute greatly to the World. They can also be bad visions, warnings, and nightmares which should also be examined and may indicate a problem.
During these hard times we often reflect a little more on how to improve upon our lives and I am asking all of us to pay attention to our visions and come to understand them. They should be reflected more in our lives, societies, and World as they are a gift of God that should be used to further His Kingdom.
I hope you explore your visions and align them, yourself, with the people and environments that can help you achieve or correct them. It is possible, that the implementation of good visions will reduce the occurrence of bad visions in us. I hope this writing will help us improve on using and understanding their value.
The Historically Good World Endeavor October 14, 2020
I have realized in my own work history when I begin to lead people my attitude changes immensely. I become even more of a servant, protective, and usually I am full of questions and want to know what support is available. I believe this to be true for all professions or vocations. I also look at the history and common tasks of the role or position to see how I move forward. And I look to see if I believe my own ideals, gifts, and insights might improve the environment of the work being done.
The role of our government is to fight for and put in place liberty and justice for all in the World, always has been. It is the only one of it’s kind. With these offices of elected officials comes great responsibility and leadership. As I think about being a president or even a Lower House Representative, I find it hard to do, so many things to consider. I can only imagine what must land on those desks, especially the president. And I realize as with many candidates and like most of us pushing for a bigger role comes the unknown. But when one makes it, the responsibility and reality lands with all it’s weight.
Our government, the US government is, in my opinion, at this time, the largest institution on earth as a result of it’s Constitution and serves the most people on earth including those of foreign countries. One could argue that China does, and I don’t think that I would disagree. But we are probably still the most diverse and flexible in many ways. I didn’t mean to imply in yesterdays post that I think our foreign aid will completely cease, though it may, I believe it will remain, only not as much by our federal government (what do you think?). I think businesses may become the primary aid in foreign countries in the coming years. And I do believe other countries can now as a result of America’s work help more with developing countries.
As the World, people, become more free of oppression and the security of their environment is increased more travelers come and there is more trade. There are more opportunities for human vocations, work. And with this comes the requirements of all necessary support and more work. All of this frees up their God given Spirits and a life to be expressed, lived.
Our government and this nation has been heavily labored with preserving and maintaining it’s existence since it’s inception. We have battled countries from small to large and we have battled terrorists and have incurred much financial losses as a result of fraud. With the victory of these battles has come the responsibility to maintain the victory. Also to search out other threats against liberty and justice in the World. We now have formed many international relationships by eliminating threats to democracy and we must maintain them as well. These relationships most often include services of all kinds; perhaps especially business or commercial. And this is how the existing Global Economy blossomed. I call it World Economy.
America’s and now much of the World’s task is to continue providing the means of and for liberty and justice, freedom, for all. We, including America, have not fully accomplished this yet and it shows up as poverty, pollution, and conflict. As it does elsewhere in the World. This, I have written, is an indication that God’s Kingdom, Laws, have not been fully implemented and realized yet. We must keep working for good in the World, for God’s people, children. The Believers.
However, as I said, America has expended much of her resources on this endeavor per her Constitution as presidents realize and understand the prosperity of liberty and justice and it’s return on investment. But we really don’t have much left for ourselves now. Even our infrastructure is worn out. We have also not maintained the level of investment required by our federal Government, taxes, as our Economy allows.
This is perhaps what helped get Donald Trump elected. Our work should turn much more to America now but Donald Trump has not done this. He has only withdrew us from the World and eliminated or crippled much of our Economic support systems and mismanaged Covid-19. He has mocked America’s philosophy and Constitution of liberty and justice for all by litigating historical interpretations and replacing them with his own. Most have found this to be so outlandish or so foolish as to not waste too much time on it. However, he has done great harm to our country and some of it legally.
He has tried to destroy the Spirit of our Society. In my opinion, it is nearly impossible to delineate laws which prevent or discourage every possible means of attack on our legal system. I question whether it is worth our time and effort or if we should just wait until this ends and begin to be more vigilant as to who we allow to hold offices and public positions of service to us.
Be sure to Vote! and take care of yourself and one another. Share your gifts. My e-book, ‘Possible Origins of White Supremacy’, supplements the substance or essence of this post well.
Welcome Sunday, October 11, 2020
Welcome to my website, Media Pages, a blog or magazine. I hope to fill it with media that exemplifies our historical and current good work and knowledge of God and my own observations, insights, views and perspectives of Life.
I write about Humanities God given responsibility to achieve Heaven on Earth or God’s Kingdom. As we are the most intelligent of God’s animals, ‘made in His image’, and at the top of the food chain we are responsible for the care of all God’s Creation(s) for our own survival and prosperity. The more we learn, use, and implement God’s Laws which include theologies, common laws, and laws of science the closer we get to God’s Kingdom.
Our ecosystems on earth share the requirements of input and care by Life all over the World exhibiting Life’s roles while appearing different, like humans, and as God intended. They are beautiful things to be a part of and care for. Our Societies are beautiful ecosystems as well, created by humans. Humans, however, given their Spirits endowed by God, have had to learn, use, and implement God’s Laws to evolve as we have. The Evolution of Humanity is the Evolution of God’s Kingdom if we are abiding by God’s Laws.
Since the beginning of the Evolution of Humanity we have experienced many obstacles or impediments including natural disasters and war. But we have always in some discipline(s) of God moved forward in our Lives and the furtherance of God’s Kingdom and prosperity. I believe there are periods of renaissance and/or enlightenment in our evolution where our knowledge and/or implementation of God’s Laws are more profound or progressive. I believe we are experiencing this now and perhaps it’s beginning is decades old. I believe we should always do all we can to attain God’s Kingdom but especially right now.
The easiest way to attain Heaven on Earth is to be natural, seeking out your Spirit and Soul and expressing it, learning all the way. God has given us Spirits which when expressed and working together will build a beautiful world of prosperity and living. We should always care and share for one another as best we can, and be kind.
The error in our ways and the work laid before us shows up as pollution, poverty, and a collective suffering sometimes causing a delay or pause in our furtherance which often includes more observation and learning before implementation. Sometimes waiting for the right Spirits or people for action, leadership. Enjoy each day as much as possible, bring joy to it, to your life, and friends and family. Working towards God’s Kingdom.
The ill willed actions in the world will continue to dwindle if we but continue to apply the Laws of God, all of them, theologies, common, and science, in our Societies of majority which has brought and brings the good and good work to the World and it’s people. We cannot continue to allow the bad to blanket themselves in our societies of good and pillage them of fruits of good labor and cause inaction of good work by fear and destruction. We mustn’t allow good people to stew in despair as a result of our inactions when our Societies and World surround them in such beauty.
