cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSUSPICIOUS-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. Quit being suspicious; be certain.


cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngLECTURE_ 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.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngCONJURE- 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.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngINSIST-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.                


cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSIMPLIFY- 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.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngTEND-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.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngBewildered- is an interesting word generally meaning massive confusion about some circumstance or idea. All of us have undoubtedly experienced it many times in our lives. Frequently, it may concern work related issues. Other times it may relate to marital problems, recalcitrant child etc. In my particular case, my biggest bewilderment has concerned the historical discord in our world and its causes. My observations forced me to conclude the basic causes were related differences in ideology and religious beliefs. While I profess, in no way, to being an expert in ancient history, I have spent considerable time and energy studying the development of religious beliefs throughout the centuries. To my bewilderment and dismay, I discovered that essentially all religion, including Christianity, is based on the mythological study of the stars and presented in the form of the Zodiac. It began with the Egyptians, They had no scientific knowledge; all they knew was what they could observe. The earth was flat; the firmament reached from one edge of the earth to the other; The earth teetered on  five crooked legs; if it fell, it would topple into the netherworld below. Seeking to understand their existence, they presumed the sun, moon and stars to be influential in their existence , and thereby assigned to them the status of a god, some if course more powerful and important than others. They connected the dots of stars with lines to create creatures with names such as Aries, Aquarius , etc. Observing that the sun was low on the horizon during winter and high during summer, they concocted the idea of the sun being born, springing to health and fruitfulness and the gradually dying, only to rise again. They observed that each of the twelve members of the Zodiac would in turn be aligned with the sun, earth and certain stars for a time period of several hundred years. These time-frames they called “ages”. The entire cycle was calculated to last 25,000-26,000 years; hence the relatively modern-day song, “Age Of Aquarius”. The Jews of course being enslaved by the Egyptians adopted the “astrological” concept and developed a scheme of creation,albeit by a singular God. Seemingly, all so-called pagan religions did likewise. Fast-forward to Christianity. When Constantine convened the 1st Council at Nicaea in 325 AD, he commissioned the “bishops” on attendance to fashion a religion of their choice. That they did to the bewilderment and dissent of many. However, dissenters had only two undesirable choices; either accept the new state religion, or accept either exile or beheading. My family bible as a child clearly describes in Matthews gospel the eastern searchers for Jesus as “astrologers”. The next “version” changed the word astrologers to “Magi”. Magi, of course were sorcerers, magicians who did their tricks utilizing the stars. The latest “version” of the bible refers to them as “wise men”. Does anyone other than I see the blatant attempt to “sweep the mythology under the carpet”? Earliest paintings of Jesus and Mary made after the 325 AD Council of Nicaea, clearly show each of their heads encircled with a back-drop of the Zodiac. The Zodiac is embedded in stone in St Peter’s Square in Rome.  Until recently, all popes reportedly had an “astute astrologer” as a chief advisor. You might appreciate my bewilderment after learning of all this mythological influence on development of religion, including my own.  That knowledge compelled me to do something that, to my knowledge, has not been done before. I was forced to actually define God, Trinity, Holy Spirit, God’s Will, soul , eternity and much, much more. I recognized that the Jesus presented to us was a hoax, but at the same time I knew that Jesus was real. I again was forced to give Him His rightful due in a sound scientific and philosophical way. In doing so, I was able to instantly eliminate seventy five to eighty years of complete bewilderment created by irrational, mythical religion. I have shown conclusively how and why all of the worlds problems have always been caused by this irrationality. My powerful little book, Wilderness Cry- a Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe is a must read for your complete peace of mind; abolishment of all your bewilderment about the meaning of life, and your relationship with the real God, Jesus, and their Combined Will, the Holy Spirit. It is available all major on-line book retailers.
