Figuratively and literally.
God did create a beautiful world and for many years man made good use of all the natural wonders we were afforded.
Then man started to get carried away with what they were able to do. Instead of balancing intellect with wisdom, some let their egos run wild with power never giving thought to how their actions would effect others or the future of the entire world. This is called ignorance and most men are guilty of this in one way or another because few trust in God.
Most of the current popular quotes or rules of thought are brought to us courtesy of the chosen, sheltered few that grew up loved and properly taken care of in relative comfort. Some claim that what happens to you in your life is up to you, which is simply not the truth. Seldom is the child of a crack whore or the town drunk quoted or celebrated for some high achievement they are responsible for but you must “Keep on Dreaming” “Keep Hope Alive” and “Never Give Up.”
When do those sayings become ridiculous or even rage inducing? Just rely on the truth and not the rants of the common man which are little more than the bleats of sheep. I also have a hard time with some Biblical scripture such as Romans 5:3 in that “tribulation worketh patience.” For some of us that have gone through much “tribulation” the last thing we now feel is patient. I know this is true for me but maybe there is a work that still needs to be done in me.
What in the hell?
Yes, indeed. Hatefulness is a little bit of hell so why am I starting to feel this emotion more than ever now? Anger at aging and not being a meaningful society member in the world’s eyes anymore? Anger at losing everything and almost everyone I have ever loved? Anger at finding out most cute little sayings are just that? Anger at all the lies and deceptions in the world? Anger that my life turned out nothing like I had planned? Fear and Anger that I just don’t really care to get back on track anymore?
I can remember a time when I accepted almost anyone as a person no matter their sins or how obnoxious they were. This came naturally for me. I didn’t force anything inside. It was just how my spirit was at the time. Willing to forgive at a moment’s notice. You would think that doing this for a long time would make you better at forgiveness but I have found it to be quite the opposite for me. I find myself growing increasingly resentful of any slight and to be fair, part of this is indeed hormonal which I am just supposed to accept because it’s the way we were created and there’s nothing I can do. I have tried hormones for a short time. Still using natural progesterone cream over the counter from some health food store.
My entire life I was a “kind” person. When I was a child I befriended anyone who was the underdog or picked on. Sometimes I was that person but not for long because my siblings were my opposite and very hostile and violent. When they found out who I was related to, they backed off. I only remember being afraid of one girl who used to beat me up after school a few times, that was before my sister started attending. The next year we became best friends.
I’m not going to blame me feeling “hateful” purely on menopause either. Though I now know where the term “old bitty” comes from. I think it’s just a combination of everything in my life and the entire world at this time set off by hormonal imbalance and extreme unhappiness. It’s not a kind or gentle place as portrayed for a while in the 50’s where you can even pretend to be safe.
New World Order of Bullies
It is clear to me that a new type of bully is in town. Most bullies have the decency to just be openly and honestly dickish. They come right out without any pretense and hurt others in pure unadulterated glee of the hunt. You have no doubt most bullies are indeed bullies.
What is a bully anyway? Someone that threatens or intimidates others? A cruel person that tries to force or coerce others into doing what they are told to do? All governing entities do this to varying degrees just to keep order to the area they are in charge of. You have to have bullies with a heart to make sure specific rules of conduct and behavior are followed to the letter, now more than ever, though they would never describe themselves in this term. I think of these kinds of bullies as normal people doing a job but a criminal may indeed think they are being bullied. I was thought of as one trying to collect tax from certain individuals. Sometimes you need to be bullied if you refuse to follow your society’s status quo.
We have a totally confused and out of control culture and society at present in America if you are to believe our biased media and I now believe that this is being done by design by the liberal left. They are up to such bad things, they need for the citizens to be distracted with other things so they have gone about promoting liberal views that divide the people. Most of what they say does not make sense, nor is it fair to most, but they are hoping enough of the naive or silly will jump on board and cause problems upsetting the majority.
I also believe any government that not only promotes but forces unpopular ideas, no matter how offensive it is to most, is torturing them in a sense. They are behaving as bullies. Now the icing in this insanity is the fact that these very same people protest very loudly when anyone disagrees with them, condemning them angrily. Complete hypocrisy. When I see the liberal politicians and celebrities in action I am reminded of what Jesus said about such judgement and hypocrisy in Matthew 7:5.
Whether you realize it or not, you can haunt a house while you are still alive.
There are some who believe in ghosts and some say hauntings are just evil spirits mimicking the dearly departed to cause problems and anguish.
There are those that believe strong emotions leave behind psychic imprints long after incidents have occurred and cause these so called “hauntings.”
If you have ever been around those with bad tempers or those with divine kindness you know there are indeed “vibes” that come from most one way or the other. Most of us are fairly spiritually weak and others vibes, or energy, does not appear to effect us one way or the other or so we think. Others are highly sensitive and can be very offended and even traumatized by just being near someone else’s “disturbed” spirit or bad mood. Prayer works wonders in balancing and calming the spirit and attracting that which is good in the world. That which is Godly.
Being constantly upset and angry does the opposite and some believe brings other bad things. Jesus spoke of the “house well swept” after exorcism and advised that your temple needs to be filled with the Word of God so you make yourself inviting to that which is pure, holy and peaceful with the positive energy of prayer. Dwell on good things constantly. Philippians 4:4-9.
God bless us, everyone.
“…Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
Things are better than they appear!
