RUBE-Now here is an interesting word not found in common usage in my entire lifetime of 84 year. It generally means an uninformed, unsophisticated, or unintelligent person; a “country bumpkin”. You might inquire how could I possibly apply that term to my philosophical thesis. And I would reply directly that the word rube explains explicitly how and why my thesis has never before been promulgated nor accepted. And you may ask, what is your thesis? Simply stated it is a philosophy concerning our Supreme Being and all its Counterparts, Trinity, Jesus, Holy Ghost, God’s Will, Soul, Eternity, and much, much more. Heretofore, all of those entities have been preached about, argued about, and sadly, fought about ad- nauseum for 2000 years. That, of course, speaks only to Christianity. There has been perpetual warring within and between various major Religions world-wide from time eternal up until this very moment. Why is that and how is it possible? The singular answer is founded in one simple truth, “ignorance”. Historically, there seems to be little doubt that all modern religions stem from ancient Egyptian astrology (pseudoscience of star reading) as their foundation. Of course the old adage applies here more than ever; “a house built on an unstable foundation is certain to fall. As each age passed from ancient Egypt, through Judaism, Paganism (Buddhism, Hinduism, etc) to Christianity, the “then current leaders” invariably found it beneficial to, not only “keep the herd intact”, but more importantly, to deploy the “herd” in battle for purposes of security as well as attainment of a larger herd. Who were/are the herd? They are the billions of “rubes” that have existed throughout the centuries. They are the billions of people who have been inculcated (brainwashed) with some religion and/or ideology. And for what purpose?; Power, Money, Control. And, sadly, “the beat goes on” this very minute. The potential for the most catastrophic event in the history of mankind is imminent. One single irrational deployment of a major nuclear weapon would likely trigger a massive nuclear war that most likely would kill or severely genetically alter any surviving entity. That alteration would produce entities never before known or imagined. Each Religion has “its god, (Christianity-God, Islam-Allah, Buddhism- Buddha, Hinduism-Brahma and others, Judaism-Yahweh, and so-on). How can rational people have so many concepts of a god? The reason is simple. No one before me has ever defined the “essence” of a Supreme Being. Simple logic demands that only one Supreme Being can exist. So the obvious is true; “we all worship that same, singular Supreme Being”, albeit we call It by a different name. A rose by any other name is still s rose. So, in defining the Essence of That Supreme Being which as a Christian, I call God, I am calling out the leaders of all ideologies and religions to relinquish their power, to humble themselves to the one common truth, to free their “rubes” to the Truth. And you say what is the Truth? And I say the Essence of our Common Supreme Being is simple Truth; It Is A Perfect Rational Being; Its mirror image is the Son (every tiniest particle of energy in existence with Jesus being our representative), and the Holy Spirit being the perpetual LOVE relationship between the Two, the Will Of God. There you have a clear graphic description of God’s Essence. Now we can speak definitively about our Supreme being and all adaptable considerations with certainty. Our rubes will be rubes no longer; they will be educated in the proper understanding of their Creator and Savior. All of the so-called mystery will be washed away and simple truth will prevail. The domineering force of Religious hierarchy would be abolished, and every human would be free to not only accept but cherish Jesus command that “We love our God with our all, And Love (accept) our neighbor (every person who ever lived or ever will live) as ourselves. I have called for that recognition under the general heading of the WORLD-WIDE COMMUNION OF SPIRITUALITY. That represents our recognition that each of us is “imprinted” with the image of our Creator, The Holy Spirit. All of us rubes are of one unity under the same Supreme Being. With acceptance of that understanding, peace would prevail. Without that acceptance peace is not possible. My Powerful little book Wilderness develops that philosophy and much more.

COSTUME-They come in all sizes, shapes, colors and descriptions. Some are glamor-ridden. Others may be scary. In general, all are usually deceptive in some way or another. In the case of religion and ideologies, my assertion is that each of these entities is wearing a costume of a “sheep” while hiding the “wolf'” inside. How am I allowed to make such an assertion? Simple observation of world religions and their fragmented factions demonstrates clearly their individual bias which they wish to impose on us; all for purposes of Power, Money, Control. While each may, in fact, have been honorable in its formation, many have shown clearly their intentions. We are continually bombarded with perpetual squabbling, skirmishing, torture, execution, and wars. Each entity claims correctness over all others. How can that be? The answer is simple. Each of them speaks of a Higher Power, and all its counterparts, in many varied ways, but not one of them has ever defined that Higher Power. Philosophically, we are not allowed to attempt analysis of anything or any entity without first defining its “essence”. Essence is that quality which makes something what it basically is. For instance the essence of a bucket is its bucketness. On the other hand, accidents are those attributes which make it the specific entity it is. For instance a bucket may be plastic, galvanized metal, one gallon capacity, red, green, bailed, handled etc. There are no two entities of any essence exactly alike; likely similar, but not exact. As humans, we carry the essence of our “humanness”, which imparts inescapable basic likeness. However, each of us is costumed with accidents which make each of us a “one of a kind” specimen. As a world society, we must recognize our common essence and accept (love) each different costume we wear. More importantly, we must recognize that only “ONE HIGHER POWER” can exist. Therefore we all are worshiping that same Supreme Being, albeit we call it by different names. We must understand that each of us by virtue of our common essence carries the same imprint of that one Supreme Being, our Creator. That imprint is our “life giving principle”, which, as a Christian, I call The Holy Spirit. As a Buddhist, you may call it something else but it is, in fact, the same Spirit, The Will of our common Supreme Being, that we “be”. I am pleading for our universal community to recognize and accept what I have labeled the WORLD-WIDE COMMUNION OF SPIRITUALITY which unites us all. We all are brothers and sisters. In my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry- a Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe, I lay out a completely new philosophy of our Supreme being and Its relationship to the entire universe(s). In doing so, I have defined the essence of our Supreme Being and all its attributes; Trinity, Ho;y Ghost, Will, Soul, eternity and much more. My philosophy is perfectly logical and irrefutable. I have begged for meaningful dialog, but so far, none has been forthcoming. I suspect the reason being, “it is wearing no costume”. It is clear an plain for anyone to see and understand. The philosophy expressed in my thesis is the “only” way peace will ever be achieved. We must Love (accept) our Supreme Being with our all, and we must Love (accept) our world-wide neighbor as ourselves. We may worship that Supreme Being as we choose, but I can assure you, after reading my little book, your attitude and understanding will forever be changed. I’m hiding behind no costume.

SUSPICIOUS-What a great word to start our day. It means simply that we have “doubt” about the validity of something. As we watch world events unfold before our eyes, no doubt we have suspicions about many people and events. We suspicion the motives and intentions of world leaders, governing officials, news broadcasters, TV commentators, teachers, preachers, business leaders, and yes, sadly, friends. We understand, usually clearly, that each of those entities has an angle of influence they wish to impart on us. Almost invariably, each of them come at us with pseudo-logic in attempt to gain our acceptance. Of course the ultimate goal of each distills down to Power, Money, Control. I say pseudo-logic because “logic” demands truth premises, either real or accepted, before any conclusion can legitimately be suggested. Our suspicion frequently arises about the validity of the suggested premises. Sometimes our intelligence is insulted by the deduction of false conclusion from true premises. In any event, we seldom are presented with a true argument about anything, That understanding keeps us suspicious about literally everything. In my little book Wilderness Cry, I show conclusively, with true premises and truth conclusions how religion has duped us on a continuing basis. Bigots may and do attack me personally; “if you don’t like the message, kill the messenger”. My message simply is this. ALL RELIGION is based on FALSE PREMISES. How am I allowed to say that? Simply because I came to the STARK realization that all religions preach about entities they can’t define. Christians preach about God; Muslims preach about Allah; Jews preach about Yahweh, Buddhist about Buddha and so on. My suspicion arose as I realized that philosophically there can be only one SUPREME BEING. Are we all worshiping a false deity? Yes and no. Yes because no one has ever defined the essence if their deity. No because, unwittingly, all have been worshiping the same deity. If anyone had ever defined the essence of their deity, he/she would have discovered that all such deities were the same. There can be only “one” Supreme Being. Having awareness that historically, the entire world has been at war perpetually because of one ideology , and/or religion attempting to impose its will on the rest, prompted me to solve the puzzle. Here again, many would and do attack me as egotistical, arrogant, and even sometimes with vile language. Why is that? Seemingly, no one wants “his apple-cart upset”: I’m threatening their “power, money, control, base. However I have and will “forge on” with a true philosophy which no one can, nor has ever attempted, to refute; the reason being, THEY CAN’T. So what is my philosophy. It begins with “defining the essence of the Supreme Being and all of its counterparts (Trinity, Will, Holy Ghost, Soul, Eternity, and much more). As far as I can tell, no one has ever before done that. They all talk and preach about those entities but they seemingly don’t have the foggiest notion about that which they preach. I, in fact, have defined conclusively the “essence” of each of those entities, and in doing so, easily explain and remove all of the so-called mysteries in out lives. I recognized that the “only” truth in the bible is Jesus’ command for us to Love our Supreme Being with our all, and to Love our Neighbor (everyone in the world) as ourselves. Love means acceptance. With that recognition, permanent peace would come. Without it , peace can never be. We must recognize that The SUPREME BEING is not Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu etc. The SUPREME BEING IS SUPREME. We all worship the same SUPREME BEING. WE ALL ARE IMPRINTED WITH THE IMAGE OF THAT BEING. As such, we are all brothers and sisters under one singular spirit, THE HOLY SPIRIT. With that understanding, I have made a plea for each of us to accept the concept of the WORLD-WIDE COMMUNION OF SPIRITUALITY among us. We must recognize that we are all of the same essence; we all are human. We must humble ourselves to that recognition; WE MUST STOP FIGHTING. In order to fully understand my philosophy and to know and understand my definition of the essence of our Supreme Being, you must read my little book. My hope, for the salvation of out existence, is that all will read; my suspicion is that most won’t. Sad indeed. Unless you can do what I have done or, at least, read my philosophy you will never understand; you will never have internal peace; you will always harbor internal hatred (lack of love [acceptance]) of your neighbor. I am very suspicious that this writing will generate much hatred of me. Why? Simply because I’m “upsetting the apple-cart” of many. Seemingly nearly all are comfortably “cozy” with being dug in like a badger defending its turf, hating literally all of their neighbors. Can I stimulate your conscience to a different attitude and understanding. Hundreds have read my little book and come away shaking their heads either in complete agreement, or in bewilderment trying to either reconcile their instilled bias, or trying to defend it philosophically which they can’t. There is no defense. I have pleaded for meaningful dialogue; so far, none. My book is described by Amazon as A REAL EYE OPENER. You should give it a try. Available all major on-line book retailers.

LECTURE_ This interesting word is used with many different connotations. Most frequently it probably refers to a teacher or professor presenting prepared material in a classroom for purpose of instructing students. Sometimes, it refers to a special guest speaker presenting unique material to a diverse group. At other times it may refer to a stern warning such as “I”m going to lecture that young man about his manners” etc. Today, I wish to lecture you (present to you) about a completely new and different concept of a Supreme Being (God, Allah, Yahweh, Buddha etc) from any you may have ever heard. In doing so, it would be impossible to present my entire philosophy without posting my entire book. I will, however describe to you enough of my ideas to hopefully stimulate your interest. You will immediately notice that I have lumped many of the common names of that Supreme Being under one heading, and that heading would encompass each and all such entities. As a Christian, I call It God. Please note,”a rose by any other name is still a rose”. Many may shriek in horror but can there be more than one Supreme Being? Absolutely not. I have done something never before done and that is “define the essence of that Being and all related entities such as Trinity, Holy Ghost, Supreme Will, Soul, Eternity, and much more. In doing so, I have removed all the so-called mysteries from our lives. I show that we each are a child of that Supreme Being and, as such, not only are we imprinted with a mirror image of that Essence, but we also are of the one common essence of humanness. I recognize and plead for your recognition of the WORLD-WIDE COMMONALITY OF SPIRITUALITY among all peoples. It is only through that recognition that we can come to the universal concept of LOVE (acceptance) of each other for the Promotion of Peace. My Book, Wilderness Cry- a Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe, could very well be construed as a “Guest Lecture”. My hope is that many will check it out and see its value. My desire is for every human on earth to be exposed to (lectured by) that material. It is the only way to peace. As a world nation, we are so divided, and hostile toward each other, all for Power, Money, Control. Can’t we do better? I know we can, but first we must be “lectured” in the methodology.

CONJURE- What a neat word. It literally means “to call up a spirit, ghost etc. In the vernacular sense it most often seems to imply the “dreaming up” or “imagining” some idea or concept not in touch with reality. In the realm of religion, people have been conjuring up ideas about spirits (ghosts), and gods from the earliest days of recorded history to this very present day. Even a casual perusal of history will clearly demonstrate that fact. History will also clearly demonstrate how those conjures ideas have been accepted as fact either voluntarily and/or by force. History also clearly shows how neighboring societies with differing conjured ideas have been at war on a perpetual basis, even to this very moment. As a matter of fact, major world religions have been conjured up, and, in many of those, major divisions and sub-divisions have evolved. So what we have experienced is, not only fighting between major religions such as Judaism, Islam and Christianity, but also infighting within the major religions themselves by differing subdivisions within any group. For instance, right this minute “radical” Muslims are killing “moderate” Muslims. Throughout the history of Christianity, a specific conjured (manufactured) version has been protected and promulgated by Imperial Rule, either civil or clerical or both. Just a few years ago, protestants and Catholics were fighting like “cats and dogs” in Northern Ireland. There still exists many theocratic governments including Roman Catholicism. While physical torture and death by fire or guillotine are no longer allowed by civil authorities, it hasn’t been too awfully long since that was not the case. However, a worse type of torture has been applied; the imposition of extreme “guilt” with resultant threat of punishment by unquenchable fire in eternal “hell”. As of 2014, there have been 33,000 conjured up “versions” of Christianity and why? All for Power, Money and Control. Organized Christianity, likely, is the largest single money-making business the world has ever known. Seeing, knowing and understanding all of those facts compelled me to try to make some “sense” of it all. Believe me, I am not about to start or suggest “another religion”. What I have done is accept one concept as truth, even though I nor anyone else can either prove or disprove its validity. That Premise is my acceptance of the existence of a Supreme Being which we call God; others call Yahweh, Allah, Buddha etc. . In my little book Wilderness Cry, I present an irrefutable philosophy about the nature of that Being and Its relationship to us and everything in our universe(s). I do so by first recognizing the problems (all the obvious discrepancies in our extremely varied teachings). For every problem, there is a solution. I provide the philosophic solution by first “defining” that Supreme Being and all its counterparts, the Trinity, Holy Spirit , God’s Will, Eternity, Soul and literally everything relating to our existence. Philosophically speaking no one is allowed to attempt to speak definitively about anything or any entity he/she cannot define. Define means to express in unmistakable terms the exact essential nature of that entity. Once I was able to define those entities, everything else fell into place beautifully. You might say I conjured up those ideas; however, contrary to many or most, those ideas are irrefutable. I have begged for meaningful dialogue, but none has come forth. My comprehension of the essence of our Supreme Being allows for the acceptance of the obvious fact that only one Supreme being can exist. Therefore we all worship the same Being; call It by any name you may, “a rose by any other name is still a rose”. With all that in mind, I recognize that all humanity is essentially related in one common spirituality, the spirit of its creator, The Holy Spirit, Will of God (Will of Yahweh, Will of Allah, Will of Buddha, ever how you may choose to label It. Accordingly I have called for “all humanity” to come to an understanding of the WORLD-WIDE COMMONALITY OF SPIRITUALITY among all people. As such we are all brothers and sisters. We all are of the same essence. Each of us carries the identical imprint of the image of our Creator. How is it possible that we are perpetually fighting? Peace will never come without that acceptance. We are called to LOVE (accept) each other. I would strongly encourage you to read my powerful lisle book; your blanket of guilt will be removed forever and you will be free to Love Your Neighbor As Yourself.

INSIST-I have been writing a lot recently about our WORLD-WIDE COMMUNION OF SPIRITUALITY. For those who may not have read my previous posts, that designation refers to a recognition that as a species, homo sapiens, we share a commonality in spirit which I termed “essence”. That essence of course is our “humanness”. As such we share a commonality of “existence being principle” which I call spirit, and specifically, as a Christian, I label as the Holy Spirit. It matters not that we are black, brown, white or red, we all are of one essence. It matters not that we profess Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, atheism, or whatever, we all still share that singular trait. As such, we all are brothers and sisters. We all are called to love (accept) each other. However, because of centuries of misguidance, we all are constantly bickering and fighting with each other; one group trying incessantly and desperately hard to impose its will on the others. Our leaders have persistently indoctrinated us to be at odds with each other, and why?; Money, Power, Control. As a universal society, we as individuals must insist on a change of attitude. How do, we do that? Simply put, just as Dr Martin Luther King exemplified, by peaceful resistance. It must begin with each of us, individually, recognizing our “common spirituality”. From there, resistance may flow from many directions; writings such as mine, cessation of financial support, peaceful demonstrations, and most importantly, home instruction of our children in proper attitudes toward our fellow human beings. Instead of fighting, we must insist on an attitude of rejoicing at our differences. We should take pride in learning about and accepting differences in our cultures. We must not be afraid of change , but rather insist on free-flow of change as we exchange ideas, associations, and cultural habits. No doubt, not a single culture on our earth possesses no beneficial nor desirable traits. That does not mean we must be one nation without boundaries. We still should govern ourselves as individual nations. However, gradually, that governance would take on a more universal form. Theoretically, all would eventually recognize what was most desirable, and would accept it “with open arms”; just look at whats happened to Europe and many areas of our world just since WW2; Democracy in some form has replaced dictatorships in many, many countries. It will never happen without grass-roots insistence by every individual world-wide. If you want to know the “justification” for my premise, I “INSIST” that you read my powerful little book, WILDERNESS CRY. In this book I define all of the entities we hear about all our lives but are never defined; God, Trinity, Holy Spirit, God’s Will, Soul, Eternity and much more. While I am Christian, I am a completely different kind of Christian than any you may ever have heard of. My philosophy applies to any and all concepts of a Supreme being; even to atheistic belief. The only answer to our problems is LOVE (acceptance). My book is available all major on-line book retailers. Comments welcomed. firstname.lastname@example.org
SIMPLIFY- What a beautiful word to describe what is desperately needed in our world if we are ever to attain peace. This word means to make easy, reduce to least common denominator, etc. One casual glance at our world society will reveal how complicated and distorted it is Ideologically, Politically, and Religiously. Because of that gross, obtuse distortion, there exists constant and perpetual discord among families, communities, cities, states and nations. Why is that? My assessment reveals one “simple” reason; total lack of unanimity concerning recognition of the basic meaning of our existence. Throughout the ages of recorded history, people have surmised and devised differing schemes of understanding . Literally all, seemingly, have been related in one way or another to the ancient Egyptian scheme of the Zodiac. Each generation and culture , in turn, have recognized a greater power than themselves as an accounting for their existence. Each has devised its own paradigm for understanding their relationship with that “greater power”. Literally all have equilibrated any success in their lives with “finding favor” with that power. In contrast, they deemed any failure to be a sign of anger and/or displeasure they have generated with that “greater power”. Consequently, to this very day, sacrificial offerings are being made to that Power as a form of appeasement. Each group has its own prejudicial view of what or who that Power might be, and sometimes with extreme differences. Some groups have decided that no such power exists at all. One might think that awareness of all those differences with their resultant derived discord would bring civilization to recognition of the desperate need for simplification. Likely that is so, but why can it not be achieved? The answer is as simple as “the nose on your face”; each ideology and/or religion professes absolute authenticity and is desperate to impose their understanding on the rest of the world, even resorting to constant wars in the attempt. Having noted all that, what is the solution? How do we simplify our lives and bring them into one accord? Regardless of what our “religious” profession or our ideological zeal may be, we all must submit to the one singular, simple, intellectual fact; we all are of the same “essence”. We all are “human”. As such, each of us possesses a singular attribute equal to, but not greater than, every other individual. As a God accepting individual, I categorize that attribute as “spirituality”. Each of us is powered by the same spirit (higher power) whom I call the Holy Spirit. With that understanding you may recognize the validity of my call for “World-wide Communion of Spirituality”. No concept can be more simple. That removes all the guess-work about our attitudes and interactions. Such a simple concept demands mutual “acceptance and respect”. With such attitudes, wars and discords are impossible. Of course, such an idea is completely “utopian”; so was Jesus’ command for us to Love (accept) our neighbor as ourselves. It is the only way peace can be attained and maintained. In my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry, I outline a philosophy never before promulgated by doing something never before done. I actually define the “Supreme Being” (Allah, Yahweh, Buddha, God etc.). I also define clearly the Trinity, Holy Spirit, God’s Will, Soul, Eternity and much much more. I simplify our understanding of literally everything affecting our existence. I clearly simplify our relationship with our Eternal Supreme Being. In no uncertain terms, I show how all those thousands of religions and ideologies have been the “destructive” forces in our lives, but more importantly, I give concrete simple solutions.
