Pre-Election Contemplations October 2, 2020
Well, I am sort of at a loss of words being tired of argument and having discussed our election in a reasonable or natural way despite Donald Trump’s crusade of division. I say, divide, and get it over with. I and my posts have gone through emotions of anger, to reasoning, to a sort of historical perspective of our countries heritage/founding and asking you to discover your visions of the US and World and act accordingly. The process of managing and learning from our emotions which can vary from individual to individual and expressing them is normal but we shouldn’t allow the cause of negative emotions or excessive burden to remain with us, as people or a nation. As we say, our struggle, our work, must go on.
I think we are all tired of Donald Trump’s Campaign, the corona virus, and our bad economy as a result. I think that I am trying to rest up for whatever happens come election day. These sort of regimes or hostile takeovers don’t last as long as they used to around the World, but I must say there will be a great sigh of relief for me if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are elected.
I still believe America is destined for more greatness and we must work for it while allowing for rejuvenation. Much work is needed within the US especially concerning minorities before we can fully reengage, spread our wings, with and/or for the World. America will need the help of minorities to improve prosperity as much as they need our help, and they will want to help. We must help at all levels of society, private and public (local, state, and federal) utilizing all entities and citizens, their support systems, and products and services.
We also need to help our governments by electing true politicians. Politicians are real people, naturally political, and, as I have said, they are good people often employing more of their heart than most to manage and represent our social services and the values and beliefs of our society. They are often the most humblest and joyous of us all.
I still believe we are in a period of Enlightenment which will be followed by a Renaissance and historically includes some mental/spiritual struggles, soul searching, with the realization of God and God’s Life consequences perhaps particularly with the allowance of inaction or bad actions. We all will experience this to varying degrees and some of us with less than our own ideal environments will require more help. We must choose our paths to prosperity and God’s Kingdom and further or move forward by making the right decisions to progress, hopefully with the help of others of all kinds, humanity. Perhaps taking another bite of the Apple.
The Sun: Our Energy Source October 27, 2020
The Sun provides most of the energy for Life on Earth.
The Sun creates or enables growth and development of living organisms by providing energy to uptake the Earth’s elements for nutrition. Through activity of live plant cells nutritious food is created incorporating the Earth’s elements with biologically or organically made molecules .We consume or eat this food breaking the bonds created by the plant producing heat and releasing nutrition and energy for growth and development. This creates ecosystems or environments within the cells and their surroundings which efficiently uses water, the carrier of most nutrients, to uptake the nutrients (elements). Decay of these organically made molecules also increases the ability and efficiency of the uptake of the elements naturally returning to Earth for recycling. Living organisms naturally sustain and improve their environments or ecosystems just by living, creating and maintaining beauty and prosperity in the World. Humans, I believe, will soon make a giant leap forward by improving their care of the environment.
The Sun’s energy is also captured and stored by plants and released by us by combustion (burning) to provide energy that we can utilize as needed like heat and electricity. Coal is a very good example of a decomposed plant material which stores energy for heating and producing electricity. Wood or trees is a good live or raw plant material used for energy.
The Sun also brought us together, enabling our societies to grow and develop and eventually guiding culturally diverse societies together by enabling navigation and thus movement of several natures like hiking, boating, and eventually, flying.
We measure stored energy in building materials for construction so that it carries or transfers the load or weight back to earth while remaining in construct, intact.
I believe, the Sun, Our Sun, will continue to increase prosperity in our World by us continuing to use it’s energy more cleanly and efficiently and allowing ecosystems and environments to remain more completely intact, natural, with all of their components. We will save energy especially in the form of heat as a result of breaking bonds of stored energy by combustion and heat trapped by the byproducts of burning fossil fuels. Both contributing to global warming. And, our water will be cleaner.
In my opinion, there are or will also be great opportunities in food production systems, flood or excess rain accumulation management, and waste water management. This should also increase the quantity of clean water for life’s consumption. Increasing the quantity of water available and it’s quality will also, in my opinion, increase or make more efficient the elements available to plants and thus humans; the elements which also enable life in on Earth.
I believe the past sixty or more years of exploring and interacting with nature will be included in literature as of a period of Enlightenment and will culminate in a period of Renaissance where we implement what we have learned and experienced and enjoy more of the prosperity Nature and God’s Kingdom brings and provides. This Renaissance period will also be marked once again by Humanism.

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.
