(Poem: Philosophy) Virtue

Virtue

 

What is more proof of a mortal than to possess Virtue

Is it not better to be barren while filled with God’s Virtue

Than it is to have many children who are Vile in their heart

Evil and Virtue are know by both man and by God’s Angels

Both are imitated by other humans and missed when gone

 

All Evil is illegitimate and will perish in the walk of time

The land will vomit out even the seeds of a Vile Plant

For the Stalks of the wicked are planted in Volcanic Sand

Their Branches are weak and will be broken off by the wind

Their Fruit will be rotten and not be worthy or be able to live

 

Though the Evil may live long they are but fodder for the Hell’s Fire

When the Righteous die young they are as the Gray Hair in Heaven

Gray Hair is not measured by years but by the Virtue they possessed

Sometimes the Lord takes the Young to save them from Evil surroundings

For by their Virtue even in a short time their Souls were pleasing to God

For through Grace, Mercy and Virtue He watches over all of His Holy Ones

 

(Philosophy Poem) Living Under The Cross

Living Under The Cross

 

When we are born we unite the Soul and the Body

What did we know then that we have forgotten later

From the womb we are all known by our Creator

Did we know then that our Soul was actually older

Yet, in the darkness of the womb we do learn much

 

When our eyes are opened and our bottom is slapped

Our first scream will it be just the first of many to endure

The Soul enters the body and we all become a living Being

So much to learn about this new world we were now given

Life, skin color, flags, to us, what do they really represent

 

We learn to play, to live, also how to hate and how to love

Through parents, through school, life is filled with learning

What is important, what is not, how to steal and how to lie

Is there a place for faith, or is faith just a waste of our time

Like it or not, we all live and we die under the blood of the Cross

American Christians Love The Father Of Habitual Liars And His Puppets

American Christians Love The Father Of Habitual Liars And His Puppets

 

I used to think that the people in the U.S. who call themselves Christians would never ever back a person who is well known to be a constant liar, I have realized that I was wrong. After all when a person is know to lie constantly how could anyone ever trust anything that comes out of their mouth? Even when such a person is telling you things that you want to hear, then you are the one who is a total idiot for listing to them and believing that what they are telling you is the truth. Top that with the knowledge of the fact that this liar is a total idiot who basically knows nothing about the real world or your life experiences. I am totally embarrassed that we have such a person as our President. If Ms. Hillary had won (which she actually did by 3 million votes) we would still have had a habitual liar for our President. About the only differences in the two is that she is actually smart and that it is believed by some that she has her own set of balls, that is compared to Mr. Trump who has never had any.

 

I have studied the Book of Revelation for decades now and there was only one part of it that I was having trouble with and this comes back around to the people who consider themselves to be Christians here in the States. I know that what I am getting ready to write will anger many people, Christians and non-Christians alike but I refuse to lie just to try to sugarcoat the truth. Near the end of days the Devil himself will sit upon the Temple Mount as the King of the world. The Great Whore of Revelation is the Catholic Church who will sit upon the seven continents and the Babylon of Revelation is “the eternal city”, Rome. The Devil’s army will destroy the Catholic Church and God will destroy Rome. The Catholic Church has fornicated with the world now for two centuries, the “Church” is the “Bride of Christ” that He is coming back to get but this ‘Bride’ is highly unholy and will be destroyed. There will be a time where 10 Nations will control most all of the world’s governments and they will give their power to “the Beast”, the Devil. Then the 10 powerful Nations will filter down to three and they will attack Israel and will not leave one stone upon another. You have the Orient which will be controlled by the atheistic China, the middle of the three will be Europe which will be controlled by the atheistic Nation of Russia, then you come to the Americas. Here had been my quandary, what Nation besides the U.S. would be strong enough to gather the other Nations together as one to go and fight against Israel. I had thought that it would be impossible for it to actually be the the U.S. but I have been proven wrong by how our Nations people have fallen in behind the evil Demonic Republican and Democratic political parties.

 

I do know that actual Christians will never fall in line like that but the problem is a financial one for most all people. The time is not far off that currency will be worthless, everything that we can buy, sale, trade or eat will be done through the chip in our hands, forearms. When you can’t work, buy food, gas, transportation or a place to live, most all people will give in, even those who call themselves Christians. For those of you who have never bothered to read or study the Book of Revelation, it says very plainly what Armageddon is. It is when Satan gatherers the Nations together to fight against Christ and His Angels at His return. I had always hoped that the U.S. would never be part of the Devils unholy army but Christians backing and voting for habitual liars has proven that hope to be an empty one. May God have mercy on our ignorant Souls because the Devil sure as Hell, will not. When Christ returns the Devil and His Angels will be cast straightway into Hell as they have already had their judgement day. All that will be left will be the humans who were tricked, fooled into believing in and Worshiping the Beast and the humans will be crushed like grapes in a wine press and their blood will run to the horses reins. Then, everyone of us will have a date at the Judgement Seat of Christ whether we did or did not fall in line with our evil Satanic Leaders.

(Philosophy Poem) The Good The Bad And The Evil

The Good The Bad And The Evil

 

It is better to be barren with virtue than to have children to feed to the fire

Children are indeed a blessing if we bring them up with the mercy and love

For virtue, love and truth will lead both the parent and child to immortality

Truth is that it is better to be blessed by our Creator than by wealthy mortals

True virtue is a prize that will lead those who have it to be given a crown by God

 

The love and the cheers of the unGodly has never saved anyone from the fire

The fruit of the evil one has roots only in the dust and it always fails in time

Fierce winds are sent to test both the evil as well as the pure children of God

Branches of the wicked will snap and be gathered to be burned in the Lords time

For it is true that produce of poison will kill both the eater as well as the producer

 

Old age is both the wisdom and the gray hair even to the young who is truly wise

Sometimes the righteous are called up by God to save them from evil that surrounds

For to live a blameless life is the true sign of wisdom and evil hates even their scent

The Lord sometimes calls up the young to save their Soul from the sinners among them

For it is better to die young and pure than to live long and grow evil with one’s years

The Good the Bad and the Evil ones will all face the Judgement Seat of Christ in time

 

 

(Philosophy Poem) Finding God

Finding God

 

Who truly is ever able to find the Lord

Or is it the Lord who finds the faithful

Those who trust in the Lord will find Him

Evil thoughts separate evil from the good

For the Spirit of God will not enter the deceitful

 

They who truly love God will flee from deceit

Foolish thoughts will lead to an unrighteous end

The Spirit of God knows the fool and the fraud

The Lord is witness to the inner thoughts of the heart

For a lying mouth truly destroys ones very own Soul

 

Do not bring your death by the evil of your own hands

For the Lord created all things to live in happiness

God’s righteousness is immortal and Hades but dust

The body is ashes and no one returns from beneath

For In time our name and our monuments will be forgotten

 

Life is but a shadow and the ticking of the universal clock

Come and enjoy the gifts laid before us without murmuring

Death entered our world through the envy of the Devil against us

Yet the Souls of the righteous are in the Hands of the living God

At death their Soul is a peace and no torment will touch them

(Philosophy Poem) Thunder And Lightning

Thunder And Lightning

 

The Thunderclaps it’s deep baritone base

Singing its song, yet is it from near or far away

When the Thunder rolls does the Lightning flash

We hear its warnings yet we stay out and play

Giving no heed to the danger headed our way

 

Is Thunder truly God’s angry words like Momma said

Is the Lightning truly the finger of God on display

We stay out and we listen for the loudest of claps

In rivers, lakes and pools we sit like a proverbial duck

Some are simply too stupid to get out of harm’s way

 

The Thunder Claps and the LIghtning flashes our way

Play golf, go swimming, be next to be cooked and fried

How much grass is now covered in the ignorant ones blood

Red on the grass with the unused brains splattered around

Be wise, stay inside, don’t let the flash be your end of days

(Philosophy Poem) Who Among Us Have Wisdom

Who Among Us Have Wisdom

 

All wisdom comes from The Lord above us

Yet do I know any of what The Lord gives us

Was not wisdom before there was a creation

The roots of wisdom are lain before man’s feet

Yet can a man understand even their own beginning

 

The Lord created wisdom from His own Throne

Wisdom He has poured out before us to feel and see

All that has ever lived has been touched with His glory

To fear The Lord is the very beginning of understanding

For the wisdom of a fool only begets even more fools

 

Wisdom has been poured upon us like a drenching rain

We understand the moisture but deny the love that made it

A fools anger flares up among us and creates our own ruin

Stay patient and calm and wisdom will surely come upon us

Wisdom is a gift to the Godly but foolishness to a blind sinner

The 2-minute guide to (trying to understand) Buddhism

The 2-minute guide to Buddhism

Buddhism represents many things to many people. It’s generally considered to be a religion, though others prefer to characterize it as a spiritual tradition, a philosophy, or a more general way of life. The philosophy has been co-opted somewhat in Western culture, what with the rise of “Tibet import” shops that sell Buddha statues, tapestries, incense, and other novelties that give Westerners a taste of Eastern mysticism—in material possessions, if not in practice.

But there’s far more to the Buddhist tradition than Gautama statues or abstract concepts of Zen, and given that an estimated 8-10 percent of the entire world population are Buddhists, it’s worth examining the practice in more detail.

What is Buddhism?

Buddhism is one of the oldest and most widespread doctrines in the world. It unofficially began in ancient India, though it quickly grew and expanded throughout Asia to become a driving force for behavior, politics, art, and culture across the world.

At its core, Buddhism deals with the fundamental nature of humanity. Although it’s commonly thought of (in the West, at least,) as a strange form of mysticism, it’s actually quite pragmatic when compared to other major religions.

In Buddhism, there are no gods that demand worship, nor is there an afterlife to plan for. It doesn’t focus on questions like “why are we here?” and “who made us?” Instead, Buddhist teachings focus on our relationship with the natural world, the realities of life and death, and how we can ease our suffering while we’re here.

Buddhism is all about suffering

Perhaps the most central tenet of Buddhist belief is that, as humans, suffering is unavoidable. We’ve all experienced it before. No matter how well we plan, how hard we work, or how many pleasures surround us, it’s impossible to escape suffering completely. Tragedy strikes us when we least expect it. We get something we want, only to find that we now want something else.

In short, our desire for health, wealth, happiness, and a perfect life makes us unhappy, and after plenty of suffering, we die. But it doesn’t stop there. While many religions view death as an end, in Buddhism, it’s only the beginning.

Karma, reincarnation, and samsara

In Buddhism, death isn’t the end.  After our bodies die, we’re eventually “reborn” in a different form based on the actions we took in our life and in our previous lives. This is the concept of reincarnation; another key aspect of Buddhist philosophy.

Of course, the life we’re reborn into depends largely on our karma; the sum of all of our actions in all of our lives. Those who perform evil acts have poor karma, and it’s thought that these individuals are brought back as lower life forms. Those who do good works attain positive karma, and enjoy higher states of being throughout their lives.

This cycle of reincarnation based on our karma is called samsara. And in the Buddhist view, being stuck in samsara isn’t so great. It’s a non-stop cycle of death and rebirth, where we’re forced to endure lifetime after lifetime of unavoidable suffering.

It sounds rough to think about existence in those terms, but Buddhist philosophy isn’t so dark. Indeed, acknowledging this cycle is one of the first steps toward the highest goal of Buddhist tradition: achieving a state of Nirvana, or enlightenment, and escaping the cycle once and for all.

Escaping from the cycle of suffering

Buddhists believe that the only true escape from samsara is by attaining enlightenment: a state of positive karma, knowledge, and wisdom that can only be achieved by completely eliminating one’s desire.

Of course, this process isn’t easy. Buddhist practitioners may spend their entire lives seeking enlightenment through rigorous discipline, study, and meditation, with nothing to show for it. Indeed, devout practitioners have no real expectation of achieving enlightenment in their own lifetimes, as they understand that their efforts in this life are only a small part of a larger whole.

Achieving enlightenment isn’t something that any practitioner can accomplish in a single life; by all Buddhist schools of thought, it’s a long process that many take hundreds, or thousands, of lifetimes to accomplish. In the span of human history, few people can claim to have achieved true enlightenment. One of the few with the truest claim is certainly the founder of Buddhism, Siddhartha Gautama. Or as he’s more commonly known, the Buddha.

Who and what is a Buddha?

“Buddha” means “enlightened,” in the simplest terms.

Therefore, being a “Buddha” just means being one who has achieved the prerequisite state of Nirvana. In theory, anyone could be a Buddha; they’re not thought to be gods, nor are they meant to be worshipped. A person who attains Buddhahood is simply any person who achieves this awakened state of being.

In human history, Siddhartha Gautama is considered the only “true” Buddha, though many have laid claim to Buddhahood over the years. It was Siddhartha Gautama who first attained enlightenment thousands of years ago, and he spent the rest of his life teaching his students how to do the same. After his death, his teachings were put to print and became the foundation of Buddhism as we know it today.

Understand the nature of Buddhism

With all of the above in mind, it’s important to point out that Buddhism is a large, complicated system of beliefs. There are many schools of thought and sects with different rules, much as Christianity has multiple sects and denominations.

But regardless of the specific rule sets followed, much of Buddhism is built on a singular concept: By eliminating our desires, we eliminate suffering. And by doing so, we work toward lives of knowledge, serenity, and harmony with other people and the natural world.

(Philosophy Poem) Stay Out Of Hell

(STAY OUT OF HELL)

 

Our Souls all came from the Light Above

The Fire Below is where we don’t want to be

Here on the Land we act as though we are free

We say what we will and we do what we want

We answer only to ourselves or maybe the Police

 

We work with our mind and hands ever how we choose

The History of Man is a history of O’ so many mistakes

Forbidden Fruit and listening to the Hissing of a Snake

We live our life as thought it is our own to take or keep

Life was given a Soul, with it, what is it that we have made

 

The last Plague in Egypt was saturated in the first borns blood

The Passover was never some form of random Angelic mistake

Life and Freedom have always never ever been free to partake

The Cross was drenched in The First Born’s Blood as it had to be

His Blood was required for us to be able to stay out of Hell you see

(Philosophy Poem) I Thought To Late

I Thought To Late

 

I had the chance to except your love

Almost changed the way I live my life

Yet my own self love got in the way

Got scared and asked You please, not today

Come back again when I am old and gray

 

Go away now Holy Man your messing up my day

You have tried to change the way I think and live

Someday I may convert but today is not the day

Life’s joys are many and I won’t to live them all

It is many years till my sun will set so today I play

 

My life is filled with golden lace and many riches all

I fear no foe for I am young, strong, handsome and tall

Again you told me of the Lord of Light and His loving call

You almost persuaded me to pick up His Cross and follow

Woke up this morning with a hot pitchfork stuck in my side

Lights of life they dimmed so quick I think I thought to late
