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.

TEND-This interesting word seldom is used in a singular, active (verb) form, such as “He will tend his flock daily”. More commonly, its use expresses a leaning toward, tendency, gravitational attitude, etc. I would like to point out what should, seemingly, be an obvious fact. World-wide, there is an extremely notable tendency toward skepticism and even hatred of our fellow man. Why is that? Why cant we get along and love one another as Jesus commanded? As I look at the “big Picture”, what do I see? Right this minute, I see factions of Muslims fighting and killing each other; I see Muslims killing Jews and Christians; I see one nation vowing to exterminate Israel; I see 33,000 different so-called Christian denominations engaged in perpetual verbal war over religious interpretations; I see the continual and continuous unrelenting ideology of Socialism attempting to overtake the world; I see Communism lying in wait like a giant python, lurking for the right opportunity to put a stranglehold on the entire planet. All of those entities are wreaking havoc on our earth in unrelenting fashion; worse yet, they always have. And why? Their unrelenting tendency for Power, Money, Control. On the other hand, I see Buddhist monks in solitary contemplation and prayer; I see holy, well intended, peace loving Muslims worshiping Allah in a loving attitude; I see holy, devout, peace-loving Jews praying to Yahweh; I see ancient and modern-day Hindu meditators contemplating the meaning of life, always with a peaceful and loving tendency; and yes, I see some, loving, understanding, accepting Christians trying desperately hard to accept God and their neighbor. Each group is contemplating a Supreme Being; each group knows that Being by a different name, but in the end, all are worship the same Being. By definition, there can be only one Supreme Being; “A rose by any other name is still a rose”. So observing both the various warring and and peace-loving groups, what is the answer to the earths problem? How do we have Peace? I can clearly see that the ONLY solution for attaining peace is a WORLD-WIDE, grass-roots, campaign of preaching and teaching the “UNIVERSAL COMMUNION OF SPIRITUALITY”. This campaign must recognize that each person is a “CHILD OF THE SUPREME BEING” who made it, and therefore Its “brand”, image, is imprinted in us with Its Spirit which I call the Holy Spirit. Each of us tends to think of ourselves as individuals, and indeed we are from the standpoint of our “accidents” (those qualities that make us the specific individual we are). However we must develop an unrelenting tendency of recognizing and accepting our common essence (that quality which makes each of us identical to all others, our humanness). I say grass-roots because I know that Religious and Ideological leaders will never willingly relinquish their power, and control. They must be coerced by peaceful resistance; by attitude change among us. The simplest method of bringing religious leaders to their knees is by stopping the money flow. That gets attention quickly. However, the most important of all considerations lies within us; each of us must have a complete change of tendency toward out neighbor, no matter who nor where. We must begin seeing our neighbor as our mirror image, just as our “soul” is a mirror image of our “Supreme Being”, Creator. Observing the problems and pondering the solutions for decades compelled me to formulate a philosophy never before promulgated. It defines all of the so-called mysteries in our lives, while, at the same time, offering concrete solutions to those problems.

CONVEY-THIS WORD MEANS TO TRANSPORT OR COMMUNICATE SOMETHING. Authors write articles, periodicals and /or books for the explicit purpose of conveying their ideas to us. Manufacturers use conveyor belts to transport products and goods for one purpose or another. I have published a book, Wilderness Cry-a Scientific and philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe. I was compelled to write this book because it became crystal clear to me that all the worlds problems were caused by religion and/or ideology. It was obvious that none of them knew nor was willing to accept Truth. Each of them fabricated a set of self-serving rules and regulations which universally accomplished two things. Namely it put them in total control and secondly it put them at complete odds with their neighbor(s). Such a relationship immediately generates hostilities, and so the world has been in constant turmoil throughout recorded history. Philosophically speaking, no one is allowed to attempt discussion about any entity he/she cannot define. For instance, it would be impossible to convey any idea about a table to someone who had never heard of nor seen a table without first defining the essence of tableness for that person. For decades I was bombarded with talk about God, The Trinity, The Holy Spirit, Soul, Eternity and much more, only to be told they were mysteries and not understandable. No one, but no one ever defined any one of these entities. That realization forced me to embark on a journey of understanding. That journey took me wandering through the jungles of ignorance, mythology, deceit, and arrogance seeking the truth; it was nowhere to be found. It suddenly occurred to me that there was only one Truth and that it was God; but who was God. No one had ever defined God. Obviously, if we are to speak about God, we must define Him, Her, It.. That I did in clear, irrefutable terms using just six simple little words; GOD IS A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING. With that understanding, all the so-called mysteries disappeared. I am able to convey to you a crystal clear picture of all the above mentioned entities. Combining the basic concepts of known science, I am able to show you explicitly how God fashioned and keeps perfect everything in His universe(s). I am able to show you how the only evil in the universe is SELFISHNESS, and that evil is universal; God made it to be that way so His universe could function. However God, being Perfect, must be Perfect Love. Perfect love means “acceptance without conditions”. What better love object could God have than entire universe(s) of evil which He, Himself created? Enter Jesus, the super Einstein of His time. He saw through all, and recognizing that He alone understood those principles meant that He was the Messiah who had to “pay the price”. He did so willingly, but not without great fear and trepidation. My powerful little book conveys a clear, concise philosophy regarding everything spiritual and eternal. It is a must read for your complete exoneration and peace of mind and soul. We have been demonized to the ultimate by religion for what purpose; power, money, control. Religion is segregationist. Spirituality is universal. We all are united by the common bond of the Holy Spirit within us; we all belong to the communion of the body and blood of Christ because we and He are of the same substance, the Spirit of God. We all are of one Church; Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu,Buddhist etc. We all worship the same God wittingly or unwittingly. We all must do as Jesus commanded; Love our God with our all in whatever way we each may perceive that, and we must love our neighbor world-wide as ourselves. I trust my message was conveyed clearly. My book is available all on-line retailers. firstname.lastname@example.org
What is death anyway and what happens at death. When any living thing dies, it is because respiration a and/or metabolic activity ceases. What happens then is my philosophy. I believe at death, all our accidents (all those qualities that make anything the specific individual that it is) cease to apply. What’s left is its’ essence (soul) which in my philosophy is a mirror image of its’ Creator, God. In order to thoroughly understand those concepts, you must read my little book, Wilderness-Cry; Amazon, Kindle and all major on-line book retailers.
