Five dollars as donation is greatly appreciated. I’ll have a new CD coming out by mid June 2019. Paypal is up and running. Any help is appreciated. Thanks and remain in the present moment. I have absurd humour throughout and I hope you’re not easily offended. But if you are, I’m not terribly sorry. Stay PRESENT. If you would like to receive any information about my writings in the areas of creativity and/or the basics in waking back up after years of ‘thinking’ one just had to sort of endure life, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org __________ Text with first name and last to: 1-859-693-0134 ________ Remember, life is living you and all you need to effortlessly be is in cooperation with the “I” (Kingdom of God — Spirit of Truth) that IS within you. True transformation is the process of letting go. The word “change” normally refers to new beginnings. But transformation, the mystery we’re examining, more often happens not when something new begins but when something old falls apart. The pain of something old falling apart—chaos—invites the soul to listen at a deeper level. It invites and sometimes forces the soul to go to a new place because the old place is falling apart. Otherwise, most of us would never go to new places. The mystics use many words to describe this chaos: fire, darkness, death, emptiness, abandonment, trial, the Evil One. Whatever it is, it does not feel good and it does not feel like God. You will do anything to keep the old thing from falling apart. This is when you need patience, guidance, and the freedom to let go instead of tightening your controls and certitudes. Perhaps Jesus is describing this phenomenon when he says, “It is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it” (Matthew 7:14). Not accidentally, he mentions this narrow road right after teaching the Golden Rule. Jesus knows how much letting go it takes to “treat others as you would like them to treat you” (7:12). Transformation usually includes a disconcerting reorientation. Change can either help people to find a new meaning, or it can cause people to close down and turn bitter. The difference is determined by the quality of your inner life, what we call your “spirituality.” Change of itself just happens; but spiritual transformation must become an actual process of letting go, living in the confusing dark space for a while, and allowing yourself to be spit up on a new and unexpected shore. You can see why Jonah in the belly of the whale is such an important symbol for many Jews, Christians or people who are similarly labelled — who understand that labels too tightly pigeon hole them and those they label. There is no spiritual compartment or secular compartment. There is no compartment whatsoever. Labelling becomes all about moralistic behaviour modification and it does not work very long. You know this as self-evident. __________ Change of mind by way of dropping fears, attachments and illusions (reducing or becoming as a child) involves humility because ‘humus’ or (earth) means, “Humility is Truth.” Needing to be noticed and doted on falls away and the perception of reality as good as it is, as acceptable as it is, is to be free from the weeds that created the white noise. To complain that Reality, God, Perfect Love, Spirit, Buddha Self, Christ self, the Divine within — is silent — is absurd especially when we refuse to be. Become aware of the distractions First. Being aware that you are not aware is the beginning of awareness, waking up. The word ‘sin’ has been horribly misinterpreted by religion. It means very simply to “miss the point.” It is not God’s desire to send you to hell. That is absurd. Had the Creator created you and I to send us to hell, He or She would not have created us. “But I didn’t ask to be born.” Correct. In fact, you’ve even underestimated your case. You, the true self, pure awareness, “I knew you before you were knitted in your mother’s womb,” — SOUL — was never born and can never die. The only thing that has ever separated you from God, Perfect Love, Christ, Reality, Holy Spirit, Gentle Friend, Spirit of Truth or whatever label you want to use — has been only the thought that She doesn’t love you or couldn’t love you. Once you allow the sediments to settle to the bottom of the jar, the water becomes clear, perception is present. “Be still and know that I am Presence.” Also, “Because I Am, you are.” Again, it is only the thought that acts as the obstruction and it is illusionary. Drop that absurd idea that God could or would ever hate you — and let’s face it — you know people who you believe to be more loving, compassionate, forgiving, understanding, patient, and on your side than, very likely, the notion of the God you were sorrowfully given by fearful theologians. Jesus did not die so that God would change His mind about humanity (there’s nothing to change!), Jesus died so that humanity would change their mind about God. She or He is NOT a tyrant and it is a theological impossibility that you or I could be more caring, loving, patient and loving than God.
Never Die Young -James Taylor
Wishful Thinking – Earl Klugh (Full Album)
The Universal Christ is no threat to anything but separateness, illusion, domination, and the imperial ego. In that sense, Jesus, the Christ, is the ultimate threat, but first of all to Christians. When either you or someone you know is more merciful, forgiving, patient, graceful, unconditionally loving while (unbelievably) less given to tyrannically whimsical punishment than the God you have heard about from pulpits and exclusionary studying, you are faced with a theological impossibility. You can defend decades of fear OR experience your inner witness. The Comforter. Not until as late as the 19th century did the Catholics decide the Pope was infallible and, at least as disturbing, the Protestants decide the Bible was inerrant. God is not up there. Over 30,000 Protestant de-nominations and the metastasis continues to build walls instead of unitive bridges. The Calvinists were worst of all. Only a few were getting in and that number was filled a long time ago. It’s a dead storyline. “And the Word became flesh..” Not the bible becoming flesh as this idea is so nonsensical as to be laughable. Rather, divinity happily merged with matter, the physical form known as Jesus, the cosmically inclusive Christ. Jesus didn’t die to change God’s opinion about us (there’s nothing to change!), He died to change our very distorted opinions we have about God. To this end, we share Christ’s DNA as sons of God and daughters of the Lord. This is the very reason Jesus came. To settle humankind’s identity crisis once and for all. We just seem to hate grace. The Latin Church’s emphasis on fear-based dualism was reserved for three great Carthaginians, Tertullian, Cyprian, and Augustine, so to influence the Latin Church it deflected and declined into a system of dogmatic hierarchy and spiritual despotism. But Tertullian was the individual who set this current in motion. This, then, is the man in the hollow of whose hands lay the clay which was to be molded into concrete Latin dogma. This is the man in whose hands reclined the fate of the word eternal. Augustine, who later outdid Tertullian and his doctrines, maintained that the whole human race was “one damned batch and mass of perdition” (conspersis damnata, massa perditionis), out of which a few are elected to salvation, while all the remainder are lost for ever. (This is unworkable). And thank our Creator who cannot be contained, detained or explained by way of words and 30,000 denominations, that is NOT true either.

Overjoyed – Ben Tankard
An adjective to sound good and conjunctions mend the seams.
A blind man asked me to describe the colour green. I said I couldn’t. He asked if it was soft or smooth, tall or long, wide or narrow. I said none of these exactly because you’re trying to grasp this idea of green from your limited experience. I finally said, “Okay, I’ll tell you what the colour green is like. It’s like soft music.” Days went by and he received his eyesight back. I asked him if he’d yet to see the colour green. He said, “No!” And you know why? Because he’s looking for soft music.
