I have been reading many posts the last few days about anxiety, depression, lack of self-esteem etc. It should be noted that there is always a significant up-tick in these feelings during dark of winter, and especially near Christmas-time. There are two categories of anxiety; one type is generated by real circumstances such as concerns about where your next rent payment will come from. That is conscious anxiety and normal. The next type, which is universal, is subconscious anxiety which has a much different generator. It is instilled in us at an early age before we are rational. We are made to believe that we are bad by well-meaning parents, teachers, preachers and others. Those ideas and feelings are stored in our subconsciousness. We don’t remember the specific incidents which caused the ideas and feelings, but we have a general feeling of uneasiness and don’t know why. The more we have been poorly indoctrinated in our formative years, the greater feelings of guilt and anxiety we exhibit. Greater degrees and extremes of anxiety may, and frequently do, lead to depression, even to the point of taking ones own life. Depression is caused by our failed exhaustive attempts to ward off punishment generated by the guilt instilled in us. We see defensive reactions exhibited in many ways but two stand out. One is the overbearing hot head know-it-all who has to be right all the time; would argue a point “till hell freezes over”, and all the time likely being wrong. The other in the cowed, meek, person who exhibits no feelings of self esteem. Typically, that person is shy, backward, hates to meet new people, doesn’t like crowds, would panic if asked to speak to a public audience, and typically will cling to one or two people in their lives. Usually they live in constant fear but have no idea why. In my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry, I show how Ideologies and Religion are the two main culprits in causing those problems. Both of those entities impose on us ideas and demands totally contrary to our God-given nature. As infants, toddlers and small children, we are not capable of a rational analysis of these contrarian ideas; we simply are left with the built-in ideas that we are bad which generates guilt; guilt generates need for punishment; punishment generates anxiety which generates feelings of worthlessness and depression. I show in my book that religions and ideologies in general have ignored Jesus’ command for us to love one another as ourselves. If that were the norm in our society, our children would be inculcated in a framework of love and acceptance. The result would be dramatic. Universal peace would prevail, anxiety would be reduced to a minimum, and people would be God-loving and people-loving. It will likely never happen because of Power, Money and Control. Dictators and Church Hierarchy will never relinquish their Power. For an understanding of how to rid yourself of these anxious feelings and for a complete elucidation of many, many more concepts, you must read my book, Wilderness Cry- a Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe. Amazon and all on-line book retailers.
Since my original post, I have included additional info from publisher
Holy Spirit—If someone asked you who or what the Holy Spirit is, what would you tell them? Would you be able to give them an absolute essential definition of the HS? Likely not and the reason is readily clear. Before anyone can describe the essence of the HS, he/she must first be able do define the essence of God. Since no one ever before me has defined the essence of God in irrefutable terms, it would be impossible for any person to do so. Most likely, there would be a regurgitation of all the attributes of the HS learned in catechism classes or in bible studies, but no essential definition would be forth coming. So there could not and would not be a clear verbal picture of the essence of HS. One could no more define the essence of the HS than could they define the essence of God unless…

PERFECT-(6) in this installment we will discuss God’s Perfect Love which may be defined as acceptance without conditions. If God’s love required conditions, it would not be perfect—it would be un-filled; an impossibility in the realm of perfection. The entire universe(s) is/are a mirror image of their Generator—that Supreme Being we call Allah, Yahweh. Buddha, God, Zeus, Brahma, etc. So God , himself is intrinsically selfish for a very specific reason—he wants, desires, chooses, loves everything for himself. In order to demonstrate and be perfect love, he chose one of his mirror image representatives to execute the deed—enter Jesus the Christ.
I submit to you that Jesus was the most brilliant human or entity of any kind to ever exist in the physical presence. Even though he was raised in Nazareth, a town of one hundred or less people with one single dirt street (path) and no school, and he was basically illiterate from an education standpoint, he was an intellectual genius of the highest order. He readily saw through the sanctimonious, hypocritical, belittling image of God that was being portrayed to the world by the Jews—they could actually bargain with God.
Although he had not the foggiest notion of particle physics (quantum mechanics), he was able to see the presence of God in everything. In the Coptic Gospel of the apostle Thomas, Jesus is quoted as stating directly that, ‘the Kingdom of God is spread out all over the earth and you don’t see it’, paraphrased. With his cousin, John The Baptist, he determined that the Good News (gospel) of God’s perfect love for us must be spread to the entire world—hence the moniker Christ—the Light of the world.
They both knew that they would be killed because of their heretical teaching, but because they recognized that they were mirror images of God, they must persist—Jesus must instruct others to spread the word. It is impossible to determine if he was truly successful because the written word we have has been so terribly corrupted by people with the same attitude as the Jews who killed him. The bible has been written and copied so many times by so many people with an axe to grind that the real truth is impossible to discern—hence the dozens of different versions of his words. I ask you simply. “are different versions of the absolute truth possible?” I think not, but those, who for monetary gain, fame and power, would have you believe so.
Knowing that he would be killed (crucified) as a traitor, Jesus worked the obscure, outskirts of society while instructing both his apostles and others in his heretical teachings and understandings of God. Jesus readily understood that in order for God to demonstrate and be perfect love, a price of retribution must be paid by God, himself—what better target of acceptance in atonement than an entire universe(s) of evil which he, himself created? Jesus knew that he was that sacrificial lamb because he was the only human to recognize it—it befell his fate to pay the price. After three years or so of attempted indoctrination of the public, and seeing that the authorities were closing in on him, he chose to confront them directly—he turned over the High Priests’ money tables all the while calling them hypocrites. Then he made one desperate effort at infusing the truth into the thick-headed, illiterate apostles heads. At his last supper, he told them emphatically that he(God) was in everything and that everything was in God(him). He used the simple bread and wine he had at hand for his proclamation—apples, bananas and pork belly would have served the purpose just as well. So they hung him on a tree until he died—the price was paid—Jesus demonstrated God’s perfect love to the entire world. The Christ, the light of the world was/is shining brightly!
For complete elucidation of these and many, many more concepts, please read my two books, Wilderness Cry-A Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God And The Universe, And Peace in Spirituality. Wilderness Cry gives complete and explicit analysis of God’s identity and activities. It also shows how God has been blindsided by religion. It demonstrates clearly that our only justifiable prayer is thanksgiving. Peace in Spirituality demonstrates clearly all the causes of discord in the world. More importantly, it outlines in clear, unmistakable terms the only way to permanent peace. Both books published by Covenant Books and available world-wide, hard copy and e-books. A press release and short video trailer for Wilderness Cry are attached—please review. All comments welcomed.
PERFECT (5)-as stated before, God created all of the tiny energy particles which he has allowed to develop into a %100 evil universe by virtue of its selfishness. And you may ask in amazement and/or wonderment how or if that can possibly be. Selfishness, you may recall, is anything directed at self. Since we all have been imbued with the notion that selfishness is equilibrated with sin, we may easily overlook the fact that every living thing has many needs directed at self in order to survive. What society and or religion has dubbed sin equilibrates to extreme degrees of selfishness. Therein lies the eternal trap of judging your neighbor—“he doesn’t need that big house”; “just look at that $1000 dress she’s wearing. She thinks she is big stuff”.—and so on. Just where is the line between absolute basic needs and extreme selfishness. I submit to you that it is a matter of personal interpretation which in itself is a consequence of personality development. Just as no two gross physical entities are identical, neither are any two personalities—similar, yes; identical, no. All physical entities are built of the same identical quanta of energy. Similarly, all personalities are built out of each and every experience our being encounters. They begin with our basic genetic make-up and end at death. In between they are undergoing the gradual evolutionary process of change just as is the entire universe. Therefore, it is philosophically impossible for any two individuals to make the identical interpretation of any occurrence—similar, yes; identical, no. God knows that—he made it to be that way for a very specific reason—Love.
So here we have an entire universe of evil (selfish) things and people all of which a Perfect God has allowed to develop—why; how can that be. Believe it or not the answer to that seeming paradoxical question is rather simple. It has to do with two concepts—Eternity and God’s Perfect Love. We will discuss Eternity and its ramifications today.
How would you define eternity? I would define it very simply—Eternity is a state of being without change. We live in a physical world wherein change is constant and unrelenting. Since we have need of living in harmony with that change, we have seen need to measure that change in increments we can interpret and understand. Those increments of measured change we call time. Time is a measure of change. Since there is no time in eternity, change is impossible—many, many implications. God is Perfect and thereby incapable of change—therefore he exists in eternity. The Catholic Church and its near mimickers teach of Purgatory, a state of being where a soul is tormented for a period of time in order to remove the stain of sin before entering Heaven. Do you, as I do, see the irrationality in that concept? Clearly, it violates two concepts of eternity— both time and change.
Many religious people speak and teach about heaven. They routinely describe it as a place of eternal bliss where everyone blessed to be there will be running around greeting uncle Joe and Aunt Lilly, gleefully hugging, kissing them and catching up on old times. All of this will be occurring in God’s presence, but more importantly, some will be closer to God (a higher place in heaven) than others. Number one, does that sound selfish to you—it does to me. Number two, would it really matter?—is it possible to be more happy than perfectly happy?—I don’t think so. All of that sounds like mythological garbage to me. Number three, all of that motion and exchange definitely violates concepts of eternity. I believe there is a reality, and it is to be found in God’s Perfect Love.
Quite obviously, when we die, sooner or later we will be reduced to the basic building blocks from whence we came. Those building blocks (quanta) persist in God eternally. Will they have a specific recognizance, separate and distinct from all other entities? I do not know—only God knows that—I hope so.
There— you have two of the three great virtues of which the apostle Paul speaks—Faith that there is a God and Hope that we will persist in that God Eternally.
In my book, Wilderness Cry I show how everything in this universe is selfish. All living things have needs of nutrition and space. All inanimate things have needs of space and motion and are constantly attempting to displace each other for self accommodation. In my next installment, I will discuss God’s Perfect Love—enter Jesus.
In the meantime, I will continue to insert Covenant Books Press Release and Video trailer for Wilderness Cry and eagerly look forward to the day when both are available for Peace in Spirituality.
Perfect (4): Today I want to address God’s Perfect Intellect. Recognizing that “perfect” demands the concept of nothing lacking, then we are compelled to accept the philosophical fact that absolutely nothing of any kind has ever happened nor will ever happen without the foreknowledge of God’s Perfect Intellect. This acknowledgement would cause many to accuse me of being a predeterminist— not so fast. I had this same identical conversation with a devout Christian three years ago. He had made the same erroneous assertion. I explained to him why he was in error in his assertion. I said, “Sir, you are sitting there in my chair talking to me. I know just as certain as I know my name that before this day is over, you will leave my house, dead or alive, hopefully alive. So, my knowing that fact, does not in any way incriminate me in its causing”. “Oh” he said, “I see. God knows what we will do, but he is not making us do it. He is allowing us to do it.” “Absolutely correct”, I responded–he was relived.
Even that concept has far-reaching implications. We have already observed that everything in this universe is evil by virtue of its selfishness. You may shriek in horror at such a suggestion. How could a perfect God create or allow to be created an entire universe of evil? Believe it or not, I pondered that question also. Then suddenly the light came on again.—it has to do with God’s Perfect love. That will be the subject of my next correspondence.
In the meantime, back to God’s perfect intelligence. Is it possible to imagine an intellect so astute as to be right in the middle of orchestrating every nuclear reaction, of which there are an inestimable number occurring simultaneously in all the suns of the universe, or to be riding herd, so to speak on every earthquake, volcano, hurricane, tornado—again an inestimable number? I can’t imagine, but I know it is true. How about every snowflake, drop of rain or every shimmering grain of sand? By the way, astute scientists have estimated that there are more suns in the universe that grains of sand on all the earth’s beaches. Can you imagine that?—I can’t. And there is a perfect intelligence that imagined, created and keeps track of each and every one!
It is, in fact, impossible for our miniscule human minds to imagine such—we can know it is true from what we observe, but we cannot possibly grasp a visual of it–such is the magnitude of our God!
Again. I will refer you to my two books published by Covenant Books and available worldwide both hardcopy and e-books, Wilderness Cry, and Peace in Spirituality. Understanding that not everyone reads all of my posts, I will insert Covenant Books Press Release, and a short video trailer about Wilderness Cry. Please take a moment to review them.
Perfect: Since we now know that everything in this universe is made of identical tiny indivisible particles of energy collectively known as quanta, and since we know that each of its kind is identical to its counterparts, and since we know that not one more nor less is in existence since the Big Bang, and since we know that each is perfect in form and function, we are now entitled to assume that a perfect rationality designed and maintains them that way. Mankind, throughout the centuries, has called that Rationality by literally dozens, maybe hundreds of names—some of the more common modern names are God, Allah, Yahweh, Brahma, Buddha. Each of these designations represent mans attempt to name their supreme being in contra- distinction to other’s supreme beings. Unwittingly, each group was identifying with the same being but didn’t recognize it—the reason being that no one had defined its essence. My definition of that Being’s essence makes clear that they are all one and the same.
With that in mind we are now free to examine some attributes (accidents) of that Being. Before beginning those discussions, I want to lay a couple of ground-rules. 1-that Supreme Being has no sex, so, properly should be referred to as It; however, since we live in a patristic society, in an attempt to “hurt no one’s ears”, I’ll go with the program and call it “him”. 2- since the word God is universally understood, I shall refer to that Supreme Being as God, but in no way belittling other common designations.
One of the most readily recognizable attributes of God is power. Consider this, the universe is filled with billions/trillions of star aggregates known as galaxies and each galaxy is filled with billions/trillions of stars (suns) most of which are millions/billions of miles apart. Light traveling at the rate of 186,000miles/second takes 100,000 years to traverse our Milky Way galaxy alone. It is doubtful there is a human mind which can visualize the magnitude of even one galaxy to say nothing of the entire universe. Yet there is a God who created and maintains perfect each and every quantum of energy which makes up our universe—some great big, powerful God. We cannot even begin such a visualization—we have no reference points.
One might unwittingly say that such a powerful God could do “anything”—not so fast; remember our God is perfect and what does perfect mean? It mean unchanging and unchangeable. There goes miracles out the window. A miracle refers to an unnatural change in the course of events—not possible in God’s world. So in my understanding, all of the so-called miracles we have been exposed to represent nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of people who do/did not know God—that realization is an unbelievably terrible hurt. Grant you, there have been many seemingly inexplicable events throughout history. One of the most common is the spontaneous resolution of a cancer. There is a scientific explanation and it usually has to do with undetected activity of that person’s immune system—on the surface, it seems like a miracle—in reality, it is simply God’s little workers doing their thing in secrecy (not detectable or at least not detected by medical science).
The basic truth is this—God made one and only one creation and that is the tiny quanta of energy which make up everything. Those particles have various names and functions. However, each of its kind is perfect in both form and function. Since the moment of the Big bang, each quantum has done its job unceasingly and perfectly. Therefore, what some call evolution in the visible world, I tend to think of as God’s continuing creation. The basic building blocks remain the same but their application produce everchanging results. In the visible world it would be likened to using ten million bricks with accompanying mortar to build all sorts of different structures—the buildings all look different and have differing uses and purposes, but the are all made of identically the same bricks. That is God’s way. Much, much more to come.
I will remind you of my extensive writings on this subject in my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality—both published by Covenant Books and available world-wide both hard-copy and e-books. Press Release and video trailer for Wilderness Cry attached.
YOUR GOD: Who is your God? Could you define for me the essence of God so I might know your God? Very likely not, for the simple reason that no one before me has ever defined the essence of God. So everyone who utters the word God is referring to a total unknown—therefore there is a different God for every human that ever lived and that amounts to billions and billions. So no wonder there are 33,000 so-called Christian religions in the world and each claiming absolute authority and authenticity. There are the sacrificial Christians who each worship a different phantom God. Then there are the bible thumping Christians who swear and bedamned if everything needed to be known about God is in a book so corrupted as to be scandalous. Each and every preacher and acolyte alike are worshiping a phantom God on a continuing basis. In addition each…

Perfect: as promised, here is the next installment. Let us examine in detail each word in the definition of God’s essence. In this instance, when we say God, it is mandated that we accept the concept of a God’s existence—the only faith required (mind you I’m using the word God for convenience. That word encompasses all named and unnamed deities—a rose by any other name is still a rose).
When we say is, that means God is always in the ever present, not yesterday nor tomorrow.
A means singular, not multiple—triune in nature by philosophical mandate (I’ll elaborate on that later) but singular.
Perfect simply means complete and unchangeable—the ramifications of that concept are far, far reaching regarding our relationship with God.
Rational—the attributes of rationality are two; an intellect which perceives, and a will (spirit) which achieves. That understanding in the supernatural realm not only allows for but mandates a concept of Trinity—more on that later.
Being refers to its existence.
So, now that we have defined the language in our definition of God’s essence, we are free to explore the myriad ramifications of their meanings. Let us begin with an understanding of Trinity. As alluded to before, the concept of perfect intelligence mandates Trinity God. Allow me to draw you a simple graphic verbal picture. Ask yourself a simple question. What would a Perfect Intellect reflect upon? Quite obviously, something perfect, if available. The only perfect thing in existence is itself—so God looks inward (reflects) upon itself and what does it see?—a mirror image of itself, just as you see when you look into a mirror. Since everything in the supernatural is living, that mirror image is a real live being just as its generator—the second person of the Trinity. So now we have two Perfect intellects viewing each other. What choice do they have except to accept, choose, love, will each other. Could something Perfect not love something Perfect?—I think not. Since that perpetual loving, choosing, accepting, willing each other carries the image of its generators, it is identical to them—it is the Holy Spirit, the Will of God—the third person of Trinity.
So there you have a very clear graphic of the Trinity—the so-called mystery of the Trinity has been abolished. Because of your previous indoctrination you might say in legitimate response, “well I thought Jesus was the second person of the Trinity”. And I say Jesus was the representative of you and me and everything in creation, all of which represent the reflection of the Perfect Intellect of God—a very important subject for another day. You may find a thorough explanation of these and many, many other important concepts in our lives with which we have been oppressed in my two books, Wilderness Cry, and Peace in Spirituality. Both available world-wide on-line, both hardcopy and e-books. Both published by Covenant Books. A Press release and video trailer for Wilderness Cry are attached. Similar communications will soon be available for Peace in Spirituality.
