Joy- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngJOY: a beautiful word with a glorious meaning—what does it mean to you? I would imagine that ten people might give ten different answers and the reason for that is clear. Literally all of us have been raised in an atmosphere of guilt—we all are bad and deserve punishment. Consequently, each of us has a basic morose subconscious attitude. that attitude manifests itself in every aspect of our existence. Because of our guilt, we cannot possibly be happy—oh, we try, but usually fail miserably. Nobody’s hair looks right; look at that dress, she thinks she’s hot stuff; boy, I told him off today; and on and on.

Lets try a different approach and see what happens. How about trying to ignore the externals we observe and begin to see what’s inside—the face of Jesus. Did you ever hear Jesus talk about someone’s dress or hair or anything personal. No, but you did hear him repeatedly talk about each person’s inner beauty. He never incriminated anyone. Rather he forgave everyone. Jesus knew full well that each of us is different outside, but beautiful and perfect inside. Jesus recognized that his spirit, our spirit, and the spirit of everything in existence mirrors the the spirit (image) of its creator. Jesus saw the absolute beauty in everyone and everything. He told his thick-headed apostles that the kingdom of God is spread out all over the earth about them, but they didn’t see it.

Once we begin to see the face and spirit of Jesus in everyone, true Joy is ours, because we are seeing the face of God. Let us all try to change our attitude and become joyous in the glory of our neighbor who is God. My book , Wilderness Cry, explains all.

Guilt-Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngGUILT: now doesn’t that word run chill down your spine? How many thousands (millions) of times have you experienced it and why? Very likely, from the day of your earliest recognizance until this very moment, you have been constantly reprimanded and/or reminded of how in some way or another you are bad. Literally all of us have been instilled with that basic attitude. Why? It all goes back to the superstitious interpretation of how our God feels about us. Anytime we crook our little finger the wrong way God frowns and prescribes punishment. Very early on in civilization, those who chose to establish themselves as leaders, discovered that exact ideation as being a very useful tool in controlling the masses. Those who had “direct access” to God and could deliver his exact messages to the populace found that tactic to be fool-proof. Guess what, it’s still that way today. Basically every preacher in the world is controlling you and extracting your hard earned money from your pockets with continual threats of damnation in hellfire as the result of your unresolved guilt. They paint you a picture of a vengeful God who treats you and thinks of you as unwanted children who are dragging him down—he would readily eliminate you from his sight forever—all he needs is the tiniest excuse. So, you live in perpetual anxiety and fear, knowing full-well that you have stirred God’s ire irreparably.

Now lets step back, take a deep breath, and make a rational analysis of the situation. Presuming God to be real, we can and should make the following observations: 1-God is Perfect which means he is Perfect Love. 2-Perfect love means God cannot possibly do or cause to be done any harm to anyone; neither can he be pleased nor displeased. 3- No Perfect good God could possibly allow a tiny baby  to come into an existence where it is immediately put on trial for the “sins” of some mythical characters who supposedly lived thousands of years ago. 4-God could only create that which represents his mirror image, which in fact is every tiny particle (quantum) of energy in the universe. Having created it in his “image and likeness”, it is not possible for God to reject himself (you). You are created in the image and likeness of your creator. Yes, we all are selfish—God made us that way so his universe could function in real time. Selfishness demands need; need demands change; change is measured in units of time. If there were no selfishness, there would be no need. If there were no need there would be no change, and if there were no change, there would be no time—only eternity. The universe would be frozen in eternity. But that was not God’s plan. He planned a universe of selfishness, so he, himself, could die in atonement in the person of Jesus,. That death fulfilled two essential tasks: God became Perfect Love and we became %100 cleared of our selfishness. So relax, take a deep breath and see the beauty of God in your neighbor. Once you can see that beauty, you then can see your own beauty—your guilt will be abolished forever.

If you wish further elucidation of these points, my first book, Wilderness Cry, is just now being released worldwide by Covenant Books. It describes in detail all these concepts and many, many more. Its sequel, Peace in Spirituality has just been submitted for publication. Hopefully it will be available in a few months.

As always, I welcome any and all discussion and/or comments.

 

God- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngGod: What an explosive word! Do you believe in a God and if so, why? If you don’t believe in God (atheist), why not? If you are a believer, and you are discussing God with your neighbor who also is a believer, how would the two of you communicate your God to each other? Would the two of you be discussing the same entity, or would each of you be using the same word with different understandings of that word? That is the likely scenario. And you might ask why I would make such an outlandish statement. My reason is very clear. I am as certain as can be that neither of you can define your God. You may have a vague idea, based on Old Testament Biblical descriptions, of a Grizzled old man sitting on a throne, or perhaps, disguised, all but His bust, by a cloud. This old dude is eternally stern-browed, perpetually unhappy with you and the entire world. Seemingly, there is no way to appease Him except through strict ritualistic practices associated with sacrifices of one kind or another, known as religion. You are never assured that your feeble attempts at appeasement are successful, so you live in constant fear of eternal damnation. Seemingly, both you and your neighbor are talking about the same entity. However, on closer analysis, we discover that neither of you knows the other’s God. The reason is obvious, because one of you is Roman Catholic and the other is Southern Baptist. And to top it all off, along comes two more neighbors to join in the conversation—one is Mormon and the other is Lutheran. None of the four of you are in any agreement at all about the necessity for appeasement nor how it is to be done. Before you know it, another neighbor who is atheist joins the foray, and, of course, she disagrees with you all. She says determinedly that there is no way that a grizzled old man could manufacture and maintain our universe all the while fighting the forces of the nether-world. Visibly, it is very clear and certain that no two individuals in the universe worship the same entity. And why do you suppose that is? The reason is extremely simple; no one until now has ever defined the “essence” of our Supreme Being. Without that necessary, absolute definition, common understanding is absolutely impossible. There can be no single-mindedness. That condition has created the eternal hostile morass the world has experienced since the inception of recorded history.

Recognizing the above described discord and disorder prompted me to seek a solution to the problem. It became readily clear to me that all the problems have been created by the singular lack of definition of the “essence” of our Divine Creator. Essence is that quality which makes any entity what it basically is. Absent an essential definition, we cannot possibly communicate rationally about anything. Therefore, I was compelled to Define The Essence God. That I did with six simple, irrefutable words. God Is A Perfect Rational Being. That definition brings God’s essential nature into the realm of clear understanding for everyone. Allow me to explain: When we say God, we acclaim Its existence; when we say Is, we accept that It is always in the present; when we say A, we recognize that there is no other (singular, but triune); when we say Perfect, we mean that It is whole and complete–It cannot possibly be changed, because any change would negate Its perfection; when we say Rational, we recognize the two qualities of rationality, an intellect which perceives, and a will which achieves; when we say Being, we recognize that It exists. Notice, I use the word It to describe God–the reason is simple–God has no gender. If It did have gender, then It would be fertile, generating all sorts of imaginary mates and offspring.

Using the above definition of God’s Presence allows each of us to arrive at a similar, complete understanding of the nature of our Supreme Being—we all would be like-minded. There is no room for debate. Philosophically, all understanding is unified. I believe that with this essential definition, most atheists would come on board, recognizing the sound philosophical approach. We could make many observations contrary to current beliefs and practices. Just a few for now: To your astonishment, miracles are impossible; a miracle would require a change in God’s nature–remember God’s perfection negates any possibility of change. God can be neither pleased nor displeased—either of these entities would indicate a deficiency in God’s perfection–an impossibility. The concept of Hell is irrational–God is Perfect Love which means It accepts us the way we are regardless–any rejection would negate God’s perfection. All the begging and pleading (prayers of petition) are irrational and selfish because, again, we are asking selfishly for God to change Its nature just for the selfish, egotistical “us”. All religion is irrational because it fails to recognize God’s perfection–it is, however, extremely self-serving, ever grasping for more power, money and control of our lives–and , in doing so, creating eternal discord on our earth. Our only justifiable, but not necessary, prayer is “Thank You Lord God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit (Will Of God). Amen.

I would strongly urge each of you to think on the above concepts and see how they apply to you and your understanding, or lack thereof, of your God. In addition I would strongly urge you to read, if you have not already, my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry; Amazon, Kindle ET. Al.

One more thought. Have you come to grips with the obvious concept that only one Supreme Being is possible. that means that every named Deity (God, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, etc) are all one and the same; a rose by any other name is still a rose. When the world comes to the above “like-mindedness”, peace will prevail—until then the turmoil beat goes on.  H.L.H.

Intuition- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngINTUITION: This beautiful English word describes the intellectual ability to recognize and comprehend truth under conditions and/or circumstances which otherwise tend to be obscured or camouflaged. Intuition con-notates an insightful ability to ferret out truth which otherwise is hidden from most individuals. So, the world is rife with seemingly insoluble problems, all or most of which involve hostilities, or at a minimum evidence of gross selfishness and/or greed. Essentially all major differences are based on ideological and/or religious differences. One might reasonably ask why the differences? Why are the peoples of the world not of one, singular, mind-set? The answer is clear, the solution very murky. Throughout all of recorded history, different groups of people have conjured up ideas concerning a “higher power” or lack thereof. Each group has developed a scheme of understanding different from all others. In addition, since they were generated during a time of total scientific void, all  are based on significant mythological ideas that have no relationship nor basis in reality. Therefore, as those ideologies and religions sprang forth regionally, each has been in a constant effort of expanding through both proselytizing and hostile aggression. What we have today is numerous major religions, each with varying  divisions and sub-divisions. In Christianity alone, there are 33,000 denominations. Likely, when all are tallied, if possible, the total number of religious denominations would number in the hundreds of thousands. Mind you, each one of those denominations claims to be the one and only true religion. That situation, of course, sets the stage for continuing and continual hostilities, if not overt, at least subliminal. With that readily recognizable knowledge, it is very easy to see and understand the “cause” of the problem. What about the “solution”? Believe it or not, every problem has a concrete solution based on absolute fact and truth. That is where, Intuition, Insight, Honesty and Humility come into play. Lets begin with the basic premise that Peace must be based on “Like-mindedness”. All of humanity must have the same conceptualization of a Supreme Being. How is that to be possible? Lets consider what we have now; thousands and thousands of religious sects, each with the professed idea of a Supreme Being, but no two of which have the same idea and/or understanding. Why does that situation prevail? Very Simply, for a variety of reasons ( ignorance, selfishness, lack if insight and/or intuition, lack of/or acceptance of known science). Not one single person before me has ever “defined the essence” of our Supreme Being. The only way we can have “like-mindedness” is to have a clear-cut definition of the entity we label as a Supreme Being (God, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, Buddha, etc.). I have in fact, in my powerful little philosophy book, Wilderness Cry , defined the Essence of God. With that essential definition, every human can and must conceptualize our SB with an essential like-mindedness. By defining the Essence of God as “A Perfect Rational Being”, I am able to remove any and all doubt about SB’s nature. It is perfect in all respects; therefore change is not possible. It has created every quantum of energy that make up everything in existence; each of them is perfect in form and function by virtue of SB’s Perfect Will (Holy Spirit). SB is “perfect love), meaning It accepts us and all our selfishness without conditions. That concept negates any idea of Hell, Purgatory etc. The genius Jesus, recognized that His soul and the soul of everything in existence mirrored its Creator. He saw that everything in existence was evil by virtue of its selfishness. He also saw that selfishness was necessary for the universe to function. He realized that in order for SB to be perfect love, It must “pay the price” of acceptance of all iniquity by dying in atonement. Jesus Insight and Intuition, led Him to know that since He was the only person to understand that fact, He was the “Chosen One”, the Messiah who had to pay the price. He was our representative. He did so willingly, but with great human angst. Consequently, our only “justifiable” prayer is “Thank you Lord God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit (Will of God). Amen. Have I shown you conclusively how proper insight and intuition can and must lead to world peace? Without that “Like-mindedness”, humanity and every living thing on this earth is DOOMED. Now consider this. Lets assume that by some miracle, the entire world accepted my philosophy, what would happen to religion. Instantly, there would be no need for any church, preacher, priest, bishop, pope, etc. In our like-mindedness of understanding of our SB as A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING, religion and pagan ideologies would instantly be “Null and Void”. I might add, parenthetically,  that the chance of such understanding and acceptance by organizes religion would be equal to the proverbial “snowball in hell” scenario. That obvious fact does not, in any way, negate the absolute truth of what you just read. The only way that change would ever be possible, is from grass-roots up. If the public is not educated and brought to an insightful level of understanding, nothing will change for the better. That is why I plead for everyone to read my little book–it explains all.

God- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngGOD- Very Likely, the word God is the most used and, simultaneously, the least understood word in the English language. You might gasp in astonishment at such a statement–how could I say such a thing?  I am easily allowed that privilege by virtue of my knowledge of the derivation of a concept of God in the first instance. Without the least explanation of , or attempt at essential definition of, God just burst forth from the pages of Genesis. We are told that God created the universe—in fact, we are given a choice of our liking as to the exact order in which He accomplished the feat. We also are lead to believe that God was stern and unforgiving—break My rules and suffer the dire consequences forever. Mind you, that’s not my story–it’s in the bible. Now, of course, the bible was written by people who had extreme imaginations. They seemingly interpreted events in their lives as direct interference of their God, both good and bad, as consequences of their activities. In due time, they conjured up events and consequences of literally every type and description, but usually with negative outcomes. Their God seemed to be in a constant state of morosity. They reasoned that appeasement by way of sacrificial offerings was not only desirable but absolutely necessary. Consequently there was a sin/peace offering designed for every conceivable breach of God’s law. Now fast-forward to Jesus—what an uproar He caused. How could anyone in his right mind even consider speaking of God’s love. Worse yet, loving one’s neighbor as self, and doing good to those who hate you, was such hypocrisy as to justify death by crucifixion. Before He died, however, Jesus explained to His followers that His Spirit and the Spirit of His Father permeated everything in the universe. He explained to them that his Spirit was in the bread they were eating. He asked them to remember that fact each time they ate, thereby promoting a memory and an attitude of thanksgiving for His sacrificial death of salvation for them and every evil in the universe.  Now since that time, all sorts of meanings and interpretations of Jesus’ words and action have been justified by innumerable groups who altered the Holy writings to suit their fancy—we now have at least 33,000 known such groups, each claiming absolute authenticity. How can that possibly be??? The answer is extremely simple on the one hand and complicated on the other. It is simple because no two people who ever existed have had the same idea about just Who this God they were worshiping and talking about was/is—complicated, because each group was/is constantly attempting to gain “converts” to its way of thinking for one simple combined reason; power, money, control. Years ago, I recognized that problem of worshiping an undefined deity. It took a while, but finally it struck me. As I observed the perfect order in our universe, it became very clear to me that such perfection could not be achieved by a grizzled, morose, old man sitting on a throne in some unknown place. Such perfection could possibly be only the direct result of a perfect Intellect. Therefore, I was allowed and compelled to define the essence of our Supreme Being (GOD) as follows–GOD IS A PERFECT RATIONAL BEING. That definition says it all. God knows all, created all, maintains all, and is all. God is Perfect Love which means Its acceptance is complete without conditions. Jesus (God’s image) atoned for our iniquities. Being Perfect in all respects means simply that no change in God is possible– God’s mind cannot possibly be changed; God cannot possibly be pleased nor displeased. With that understanding, all the nonsensical, astronomically expensive religions and their practices are are ill advised and totally”miss the mark”. All the endless prayers of petition asking God to satisfy our selfish desires are ludicrous. Our only justifiable prayer is “THANK YOU LORD GOD, JESUS AND HOLY SPIRIT (WILL OF GOD). Amen. I might and must add that as Christians, we speak of God as our Supreme Being–Allah, Yahweh, Buddha, Brahma etc are the same Supreme Being—there can be only One Supreme Being. For a complete understanding of these and every concept concerning our existence, please read my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry—Amazon, Kindle ET Al.   Comments welcomed.

Propaganda- Wilderness Cry – H L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPROPAGANDA: It is very likely that each of us has been exposed to a similar degree of propaganda. That is to say that we have been under the influence of some organizational “here to say” verbiage that has been presented to us as irrefutable, gospel truth.  Because of our “brainwashing” influences, many, maybe most, of us have been suckered into a belief system that ” defies reality”. Each, in turn, is caught up in a smug cocoon of comfort. If we have enough external support, we feel very comfortable and secure in our own little cocoon. However, that comfort zone speaks nothing to reality. It is, in fact, so manifestly evident in the everyday presentation, of the  false zone of security, seen in individuals of differing ‘faith bases”. Just today, I witnessed the seemingly joyous gathering of a group of Roman catholic women who belong to the “First Friday” group. The First Friday group are people who have been convinced that attendance at mass and receiving communion on the First Friday of each month somehow entitles them to a special place in God’s heart and ultimately in His kingdom. Of course, the ultimate visible goal is the ensuing “happy hour” of breakfast, and endless gossip following each First Friday session. Now, lets examine that philosophy. It seems to me that if the “First Friday” observation were indeed important for our salvation, it would be observed in the most sanctifying manner; that is, each communicant would leave the group in self- dignified fashion and would never be “tempted” to dilute the “First Friday”sanctity with the effervescent verbosity exhibited routinely at the post-First Friday masses. To me the entire event represent a charade, masquerading under the guise of holiness and spirituality; a complete hoax. Now, in reality, none of the above is pertinent to our salvation; the entire concept is a hoax and a sham. Our Creator is Perfect; meaning it cannot possibly be influenced by our cunning, conniving schemes aimed at gaining influence over our neighbors; “I doubt there is a greater sin”. Anyone who attempts to gain influence over his/her neighbor by supposed “religious” applications is a hypocrite in the ultimate degree. God plays “no favorites”. Anyone who presumes otherwise is inglorious. All of those presumptions stem from a false concept of God. God is a perfect rational being. As such, it would be impossible for It to be prejudicial, and/or “play favorites”. God is perfect love which means It attaches no more value to one than another. Please read my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry, to understand completely this and many, many more implications. Amazon, Kindle, ET AL. All comments welcomed.

Commentary- Wilderness Cry- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngI want to make it perfectly clear that in all my blog commentaries, my intention is to never offend or demean anyone. It is, however, intended to “tickle” the deepest recesses of your intellect, and stimulate you to independent thinking.  Without doubt, most of you, as I , were brainwashed with a mythical image of  an Irate God who would swish you into eternal fire of hell on the slightest whelm. That ideology defies any concept of an all loving “Perfect God”. I want you to consider this, seemingly simple but, very important concept. No one, before me, has ever defined the “essence” of God. That means everyone talks about an entity they cannot define. That in itself is irrational. We are never allowed to attempt to speak definitively about any entity whose essence we cannot define. Otherwise, we could not possibly communicate with another rational being. Since no one before me has defined the essence of God, then it behooves all of you to heed my essential definition.  Before you read any farther, I want each of you to make a concerted effort at defining God. Then I want you to read my description and see how they coincide. Likely, you will be amazed and pleasantly surprised at how simple and complete and irrefutable my definition is. From past experience, it is very likely that most of you will attempt to define God by describing some of Its attributes. However, attributes do not suffice for an essential definition. I want you to very carefully formulate a description of God in as few as six to eight words, so that if you were describing the basic nature of God to a completely UN-indoctrinated person, that person would have a clear picture of God’s essential nature ( that which makes It what It is). Have you formulated your definition. OK: see how your definition compares with mine. I have defined God thus with six simple words. Sounds crazy that God could be define with six simple English words? Try This: God Is A Perfect Rational Being. So how does that relate?  When we say God, it means we accept there is God. When we say “is”, we mean It always is in the ever present. When we say “A”, we mean It is singular (triune, but singular). When we say Perfect, we mean It is lacking in nothing; It cannot be helped; It cannot be hurt. When we say “rational, we mean It has two basic attributes; an Intellect which perceives all and a Will which achieves all. When we say “being”, we mean It exists. So there you have a complete “essential” definition of our Creator. Notice I use the word It to describe out Supreme Being. Religious, prejudice and very biased people have ascribed the term “Father” to describe God. Does God have Gender? Does It have Penis and testicles? Is It capable of breeding? If so, what or who? Those prejudicial, gender driven, descriptions of God were generated by a very, very biased patristic society which gave no quarter of importance at all to the female. But those patristic descriptions of God are subliminal brainwashing of the cruelest form, and have led to the most despicable degree of guilt  among all people but especially females. That guilt is translated daily into tumultuous anxiety and depression with frequent eventual suicide. Do you have a clearer understanding of God now.  Our God is Perfect Love as manifested through Jesus , who, recognizing that His inner being was a mirror image of Its Generator, freely chose to give His Life in complete reparation for our “selfishness”. That concept completely negates any possibility of Hell, Purgatory and the likes. For a complete understanding of these important concepts, and , more importantly, for complete escape from the throws of irrationality, you must read my powerful little book, Wilderness Cry; Amazon, Kindle Et Al.  Please comment.
