When we were getting ready to graduate, my roommate presented me with a present – a book. Phyllis Curott “Most people know intuitively that when you fall in love, the world is full of magic. The Day After Mother’s Day: The Debate Over Who Works Harder—Stay-at-Home Moms, Working Moms, or Part-Time Moms?
What I often have no grasp of are the plots and details that are being choreographed in exceptional detail, bringing all of the characters together into the story arc that is just real enough for me to not snap awake, and just unreal enough for me to be at least somewhat intrinsically certain that what I am living is not real. More often than not, I find myself waking with a few things flushed away, cleared from memory. Lately I’ve started wondering whether it was because my environment there was completely silent. Especially Google Reader – I want to trim that a bunch (which is culminating in a web service I hope to release within 3 months). It makes me think that it’s finally time for me to have a kind of routine of sorts, if only to flush the buffers. All in all, in some ways this makes me wonder whether the past 12 months were a useful experiment.
In many ways I think it’s the greatest example of why I really love the culture at my current, but soon-to-be-former employer.
Lunchtime conversations range from music production, pop psychology, new start ups, combating human trafficking, to the desirability of hot sauce with the day’s catered fare.
There’s a subdued creative spirit in it all, of a kind of meta-thought layer that we collectively carry around the office. I am of the opinion that enlightenment of the mind is not a state of being but a state of quest.
There are people who would profess to be independent [in their relationships] but then take support from their parents. There are people who would think themselves knowledgeable who have not touched the surface of knowledge. There are people who would say that they are very Zen, but have never sat and contemplated a Koan.
Similarly perhaps much of society is also disruptive, preventing me from focusing on what I would like to. When I was about two weeks from finishing my first novel, and really hitting it hard, daily, an old friend phoned. The negatives of our consciousness, mirror imprinted, black on white, emphatically stored one and zero and one again codified data for codified words.
The abyss doesn’t look back into us, our inner abyss leaks… oozes… out from us and into the abyss we ourselves look into. When I lived in Seattle, a highlight every year was the Seattle International Film Festival.
It’s the spirit behind the mistakes, the carelessness or the mindfulness or the frequency, that should be considered. The ability for someone to think about their reality, accept it, and dissect it is paramount if one is to let go of their fear, doubt, and self-hindrance.
In all that we do, the way that we are – we reason with ourselves that we are a certain way, that we do a certain thing, that we decided something or something was ok. But if you believed in yourself, and you thought you could make 2 million in the same time, you would quit. An oft-remembered conversation during college I had with my closest friends was one where we reasonably assumed that we could pursue something, and that we would potentially payoff $50 million each, and we walked away. Hanging out on campus with your friends, gathering together for a basketball or baseball game, or taking in a movie marathon night with the girls. I got into things that I shouldn’t and got involved with people it would have been better to have left alone. I would often times try to pull out a word of wisdom that people from home would use with me, but because I couldn’t quite remember the sayings, I would eventually make up my own words of wisdom that would say the same thing with an obvious personal flair. This wasn’t just any book, it was a compilation of wisdom sayings that I had spoken over the years. She even categorized the sayings and color-coded each category so that quotes related to relationships are in blue magic marker and life lessons are in orange magic marker.
And on Tuesday we intentionally draw from it, reflecting against the backdrop of some speaker of varying repute, depending on the day. More often than not, I try to pretend that everyone I know has that, not because it is Better, but because I Wants. Perhaps then I should only surround myself with people who want to converse in meaningful ways or who I don’t mind the drivel. And perhaps having people who are near but not of a parallel disposition would simply be disruptive. The emergent self-organization that’s heralded as the salvation of our pop-culture infatuated society is not so forgiving. The lack of a rich inner life that might expose a new path to Greatness precluded by the vast mass of noise. Flixster doesn’t seem to fit the bill (not in the same way that I use Goodreads for books, anyway.
The most basic element of life, of understanding one’s existence is to think about the state of the world. It would seem that we operate asynchronously (mostly) as far as communication is concerned. In doing anything, there is the cost of the opportunities that you’re otherwise forsaking.
I thought I’d share some of them with you, since most people only ever see few dimensions of me. 20121 Kings 8:28 -- But please listen to my prayer and my request, because I am your servant. I awoke and went down stairs and walked to the refrigerator to start retrieving what I had prepared earlier for my lunch. But through it all, my on-campus apartment and the ladies that lived within were a safe haven that I could go and get away. While some were unique to us, making fun of our morning rituals or habits, others still ring with a bit of profound truth. Also, I was between paychecks and needed to stop in to work and pick up my next paycheck a little early. I thought about you during the day, I missed you before I slept, you wrote me an email, I sent you a note. I may have been the only one in my party who found it completely satisfying (and of course the curse of a year following gives the clarity needed to fully appreciate the implications). But like most things in life, I didn’t learn from it or get from it much of what I was hoping for. The team here has been excellently cultivated to retain and attract people who carry a complex interplay of ideas and opinions. Been meaning to make one for a long time, but finally getting around to it, in honor of my upcoming birthday. Vim macros to translate ACGTxACGT pairs to form a P3 PPM image, 700×700 px, compressed into final PNG via ImageMagick.
That people finding my companionship either insufficiently intimate or productive would discard me. Where pre-teen over-sexed hormone infested children let their thoughts, their images, their videos run free.


The notion of Public incorporated in the republic goes private retreating into board rooms. No rose colored glasses tainting how you view yourself and take stock of just a few things.
I wanted to write about it as I was explaining to a friend recently that they were only considering the opportunity cost of leaving, when really they needed to consider the opportunity cost of staying. When we were together, goofiness was king and the only rules we had were to have fun and let loose. It’s a scrapbook of 4 years together with the women in my apartment and each quote brings back the memories of a silly moment or triumphant victory. I would often catch myself in that kind of a feedback loop and know that I did not want such a thing. Work was interesting because it sometimes would feel like every single person in that environment was a more mature, better developed aspect of my personality and preferences. I was fortunate to find this group here without really having the foresight to look for it and realize it when deciding to come here.
Questioning the role of government, the role of bureaucracy, or community or spiritual leaders. There’s a loss of control in play, where the memetic evolution leads to these records spreading free.
Anime or other foreign films with subtitles are especially problematic – they have to be especially good for me to partake, given they require my visual attention. My exercise of restraint is actually one of the things I am most aware of, and pleased with. It is easy to implement a kind of routine that takes us away from ourselves, and thus from reality.
Once in the 8th century a Buddhist master expressed : when we are facing problems think of the problem and if you can overcome that problem then no need to worry.
You can never recapture what you digitize, it belongs to the world, the noosphere by its very inception.
It’s our new religion in a way, a new kind of religion for a new kind of world that is itself empty, and adored because of its emptiness. As I started to pack my lunch box something caught my eye outside on the deck through the patio doors.
In some ways, real-world interactions that gain depth have no substitute, even when an interaction will be taken asynchronous again.
Like we tweet, and we facebook and we youtube and xanga and livejournal and blog and we’re gonna email and comment and rate and tag and drown in a sea of filth that we create and annotate and meta-date.
I have definitely had my moments of weakness where I wished that I didn’t seem to operate this way, having a kind of auto-pilot rainbow guardian watching over the optimization of my wants and ensuring adherence.
I walked over and looked out into the dark and immediately was blinded by an immensely bright light with rays and spikes resembling fire.
And in other ways, real-world interactions that destroy depth have no substitute, especially when an interaction has clearly been dying for some time.
I hung on with every last ounce of breath that I had-- for I had known from the start that this was pure evil.
Slowly but it was leaving the house and vanishing into the night like a balloon drifting into the atmosphere and then disappearing. I staggered back completely exhausted knowing that a battle just had been fought for my soul. I believe the battle was real and that I really experienced it but maybe in a different dimension or realm. I had defeated the devil with the name of Jesus.===================================================================Sometime in our life we all will have to battle demons that try to control us. Whether it is a fight for our soul or some other evil in our life, it will be a fight that you need to win.
In the book The boy who came back from heaven, Alex Malarkey says that Heaven is guarded by large angels. In the book of Daniel a messenger from God tells Daniel in Chapter 10:12-14 --"Daniel, do not be afraid.
Then Michael, one of the most important angels, came to help me, because I had been left there with the king of Persia. Battles are surely being fought every minute of every day in the supernatural and spiritual world.
Call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ today for it is written that the devil will lose in the end. If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?
13 And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.
Si un hombre tiene cien ovejas y una de ellas se ha descarriado, no deja las noventa y nueve en los montes, y va en busca de la descarriada?13Y si sucede que la halla, en verdad os digo que se regocija ms por sta que por las noventa y nueve que no se han descarriado.14As, no es la voluntad de vuestro Padre que est en los cielos que se pierda uno de estos pequeitos.Never believed in God?
Jesus still loves you.Colossians 1:13 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)13 He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, Porque El nos libr del dominio de las tinieblas y nos traslad al reino de su Hijo amado,Broken hearted, beaten, and broken?
29 All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. 28Venid a m, todos los que estis cansados y cargados, y yo os har descansar.29Tomad mi yugo sobre vosotros y aprended de m, que soy manso y humilde de corazn, y HALLAREIS DESCANSO PARA VUESTRAS ALMAS.Failed? He'll save you!"As que, los que son de fe son bendecidos con Abraham, el creyente.Fortaleced las manos dbilesy afianzad las rodillas vacilantes.Feel you are not worthy? 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 New Century Version (NCV)17 If anyone belongs to Christ, there is a new creation.
Through Christ, God made peace between us and himself, and God gave us the work of telling everyone about the peace we can have with him.19 God was in Christ, making peace between the world and himself. So I wrote the following that is below: A ==========================================================================================================================A Season Finale--- This may be my last Pastor Pop-Pop Sermon. I may leave the web site up and running for a year in case it picks up but there probably will not be new words of wisdom in a message. I feel that in body, mind, and soul that I am under attack from the evil one and it is totally exhausting me spiritually and physically. At one time there was a period that I was getting over 200 hits per month but now it is down to just a few.
One child only comes here when coached and the other I have not seen or heard from in months. Here are some of my prouder moments: Hundreds have visited my Altar Call tab (souls have been saved), I taught a Spanish gentleman who had never prayed before to pray, several people said that I would make a good Pastor, one young man who did not go to Church told me that if I started one he would come to it, at one time I was rated #1 by several internet web service search engines, and through Jesus I helped cure someone of an affliction.
You can still follow me on Twitter if you choose and I may come back to this site occasionally to add a Bible verse or two.
Consider this a season finale in which you dont know if the show will be cancelled or back next season.
He stated that he did not want the Lord to come back yet even though all the people he knew could not wait for Jesus to come back. Pastor said that when people tell him that they want Christ to come back that he says, No, not yet, there is at least one more soul to save! I pondered and prayed on that for a minute or two and decided not to cancel my web site and mission.
Since posting the latest message my hits again went well over 200 and I was again rated by one search engine as #1 and another at #2.


After publishing the latest message I had two Spanish people seek the Lord more and now a friend has asked to go to Church with me.
I will take out the stubborn hearts of stone from your bodies, and I will give you obedient hearts of flesh.A What is my point?
And most importantly, do not give up trying to save souls in your family, work place, community, or the world. Encourage them with great patience and careful teaching,A Matthew 16:26 --- It is worthless to have the whole world if they lose their souls. You see, we did not have video games then unless you count Pong and the snow made the four channels we did get on TV full of static. As we rounded a portion of the mountain the ledge that I was walking on gave way and I fell about 20 feet down a cliff. The snow below cushioned my fall but where I landed - there was about a 60 degree slope covered with snow and ice. Below me was a very large straight down drop that would have been disastrous for me if I went over it.
I dug in my heals and my hands but could not stop or slow down so I started to steer myself toward a small tree.
Knowing that I would not be able to hang on to it with my hands, I decided to let it hit me in the body.
Stopping within 3 feet of going over the edge I hurt all over with the breath knocked out of me. I could have stayed there and yelled for help or rested awhile but knowing that my friend was up there alone and I had to get out of this situation, I just started to slowly and safely climb back up. A You may make a climb to the top of the ladder at work and end up falling due to a lay-off or closure. A You may get married and start a family and it end up in divorce or maybe a spouse will die. Your exhausted, depressed, tired and disgusted and feel just like giving up or taking a rest on life for a time. Dont allow yourself to be buried in that pit you have fallen in and (one step at a time) climb out of that valley and charge up that hill. It may take time, maybe years, but if you stay put and do not move forward (even a little at first) you will be like that bear caught in a trap in the middle of the dark woods.
A And sometimes a person starts to climb out of their mess and then starts to back-slide so doubt sets in.
Peter, one of Christs disciples trusted the Lord and actually walked on water but when the storm kept up - his faith started to slip.
The Lord will not give you something that He knows is disastrous for you even if you think it might be good.
She had her hand on the throttle of an F-16 and she had her orders: Bring down United Airlines Flight 93. Penney, one of two combat pilots in the air that morning, was told to stop the plane before it reached the nations capitol. The problem was that her and her wing man had to scramble so fast that there was no time to load ammunition or missiles. This was the end of her life and she knew it but this would be the ultimate sacrifice for her country and would save Washington from the airliners destruction.
Fortunately for her (not the passengers) the airline crashed in a field inPennsylvania before the F-16s arrived at the scene. The priest will perform the acts to remove that person's sin so he will belong to the Lord. 7 " 'But if the person cannot afford a lamb, he must bring two doves or two young pigeons to the Lord as the penalty for his sin.
One bird must be for a sin offering, and the other must be for a whole burnt offering.8 He must bring them to the priest, who will first offer the one for the sin offering.
In this way the priest will remove the person's sin so he will belong to the Lord, and the Lord will forgive him.However, God decided that this practice was going to end and through His love he was going to offer His own blood sacrifice for all of our sins. He asked His son to give His life as a perfect blood sacrifice and an offering for all that we have done badly. He gave the ultimate sacrifice for us on that cross that day even though we did not deserve it. As Heather Lucky Penny was willing to do for her country, Jesus was willing to do the same for His Father and all of His followers. All those who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior shall now have the forgiveness of their sins through His blood. That new person is made to be like Godmade to be truly good and holy.=============================================Check out the new song by Tricia Brock --"Always", on my Song tab. We as humans can live to be 100 years old if we are not struck with cancer, a major disease or hit by a car. This latter group is the one that I will address.Lets look at the validity of the Bible for a minute. Some people will argue that you can't believe the Bible because it was written by followers who believed in God or Jesus.
If you were to use this argument regarding autobiographies, biographies, and history books, you would have to remove all these books off the library selves. Others would argue that the Bible can't be trusted because we do not know if the original manuscripts are accurate. To determine the accuracy of the manuscripts, we can compare the Bible manuscripts to manuscripts of other literature. If we are going to be fair, we should not require more of the Bible than we do other literature, but the Bible will hold up to even more scrutiny.
Notice that the time frame for the New Testament of the Bible is much much smaller and there are many more copies.
Over and over again, archaeological digs are finding artifacts that prove the various stories that are in the Bible. There were over 40 authors so there is no way they could have conspired with each other.So, if we are to consider the Bible as factual then lets look at what it says about getting to Heaven where the Father resides. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all people are the same:As you see, according to the Bible, there is only one God and the only way to Him is through faith in Jesus and accepting Him as your Lord and Savior. There are many more passages to quote but I encourage you to get a Bible in an easy to read translation and read it yourself. The other religions, besides Christianity, in the world follow a person, thing, idol, the earth, nature, or a prophet. The Jewish and Muslim people believe in the same Father (the Muslims follow a prophet though) but Jesus declared himself part of God and proved it through numerous miracles.
We Christians believe in a Trinity the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit, as proved through the Bible. Nothing you do here on Earth can save you only the belief of this God and acceptance of His son Jesus.
He was mad at the idea that his wife became a Christian and went on a journey to prove that Jesus was a work of fiction.
