Wednesday weirdness

bluebird of bitterness

A musical meditation on overattachment to material things.

As we reach the twilight hours of our fleeting earthly time,
And know we will not see the sun tomorrow,
We may think with deep regret of all the things we leave behind,
But oh, my friends, do not give in to sorrow.

On the other shore, on the other shore,
We will reunite with all the things we ever owned before;
Our single socks will all be to their rightful pairs restored;
We’ll meet all our possessions on the other shore.

As we near those golden sidewalks floating on the clouds above,
Assuming heaven is our destination,
We may glance behind for one last look at everything we love,
But truly there’s no call for reservation.

On the other shore, on the other shore,
We’ll have piles and piles of jeans we can’t fit into anymore;
We’ll wear all those crazy…

Alt-Epistemology: What does “Trump’s black horse” MEAN? —

If ever there was an example of the relativity of perception and perspective, this is the MOST brilliant twitter thread I’ve ever come across, and illustrates all too well, the extreme “group identity” splits in our decomposing civilization. The Most Hilarious Twitter Thread of the Year Shows How Social Media Reacts to Anything Trump Does…

Alt-Epistemology: What does “Trump’s black horse” MEAN? —

‘Tis the Season

Untangled

For many ’tis the season
of
places to go
things to do
friends and family

For many ’tis the season
of
loneliness painful memories
hunger, grief, and sadness

Breathe in joy, gratefulness, and thankfulness
breathe out compassion

Compassion for the many
who look at the calendar
and silently say Jan 2nd can not come soon enough

Joy for the many
who love everything about this season

Room to feel compassion, joy, and understanding
so the many, the few, and the silent
are seen, heard and understood

Why I Believe: C.S. Lewis and Me – Part Three

Mitch Teemley

surprised-by-joy

Conclusion to the three-part story of my journey from atheism to faith

To read Part One,click here.

   “Surprised by joy—impatient as the Wind, I turned to share the transport.”       ~William Wordsworth

Almost immediately after my diffident conversion, I went looking for something that could explain it, and stumbled upon (or rather, was led to) the writings of C. S. Lewis. It was like finding a bundle of letters from my “real father.” His thoughts were as alive to me as my own.

Indeed, they paralleled my own in every way, except that he’d thought and written about them in far greater depth. When I read of his brushes with Joy, his word for the untranslatable German “sehnsucht,” the transcendent longing of which all other longings are merely a shadow, my heart jumped from my chest. Here again was the thing I’d called…

So That All the World May See | Heavenletters

Rainbow Wave of Light

God said:

Your intellect keeps you back from full enlightenment, and so you are busy with your brain and less attuned to your effulgent heart. You may have heard that you are already fully enlightened, but that is not your experience. In order to experience it, you have to be aware of it. You experience through awareness. I would say that you are aware of too many other things that get in the way of Reality and Self-realization. Knowledge becomes ignorance. The intellect takes twists and turns. A treasure lies buried among debris.

Enlightenment is not something you attain or have to attain. It is not work. Enlightenment attains itself without your interference. Your interference may well have blocked your realization of the light that shines brightly within you. But nothing has blocked your light. Only, you have kept it from your view. The world of blindness thinks it sees.

Rainbow Wave of Light

God said:

When life becomes too much for you, as it sometimes does, look upwards. This will automatically take your attention off your troubles. When you raise your eyes, you raise your spirits. When you look up, you cannot remember your troubles. Troubles do not exist when you look upwards. And if by some chance you do recollect your woes, they don’t feel so woeful. Look up a lot. Catch My eye.

There is a huge canopy of love over you. The sky covers the Earth. The sky is embossed on the Earth.

When you look up, you see beyond the sky, and, as it were, you go to the other side of it, and you begin to assume your place in Heaven, and you see from a vaster view. You round the world and find yourself standing in the same place as you are now. You will not recall…
