Violence, Volcanoes & Blaming God

Nature-ly Not That Way #1

Somewhere, a volcano is active, forming - same for violence. Both beyond our periphery unless we are right there or until a sensational eruption is broadcast. Despite some likeness between violence and a volcano, two aspects, the essential and the evil, forever separates them.

Why is it usually said, “the volcano erupted violently?” A volcano exists in accordance with natural law. Just like a tornado, earthquake, hurricane, tsunami or thunderstorm, a volcano has immense power indeed. The release of this energy is not an act of violence because a volcano is nature-ly not that way.

Violence is a human characteristic. Violence is intentional action to harm. Violence is any degree of intent to lessen birth rights. Violence allows the violent to escape. Violence hides behind survival. Violence is the ultimate aberration of fear. Violence runs counter to creation. A volcanic eruption is the crowning ceremony of the maturing of being in sync.

A volcano is a part of the recycling, replenishing and reconfiguring process. If current-day humans were taught truths, we'd be praying for the release of gases from volcanoes more than we pray for our sports teams to win because a volcano helps the global air we breathe.

A volcano, even if underwater, is also a release valve that helps alleviate pressure from the incredible energy at the Earth's core.* This, along with geysers and hot springs, helps keep the planet from blowing up; however, witnessing a volcano expel orange, red and brown liquid rock hundreds of feet into the air is to see a celebration of magnificence far more fulfilling than any fireworks display.

Volcanoes help make the soil and seas more fertile. Volcanic eruptions are benevolent not violent. Volcanic gases and ash are important to living organisms. Volcanoes also bring forth obsidian and pumice. Beyond their natural value, each is precious due to work uses and spiritual uses. Where is the violence in all this benefit and beauty?

A volkano is an essential expression of exquisite elements. To term this “violent” is to blame those who established the conditions from the very foundations.

Better The Company You Keep

The phone rings. It's that person you've hooked up with many times; however, these interactions have become briefer over the years. You love the company and often hope for something more. Plans are made to come together again and soon. Until this moment you were scanning your situation looking for something rewarding to do - other than bringing current an overdue housecleaning or reaching into a grab bag of errands.

Now you're a flurry of fresh feeling and energy. There's still the same lot to do and even less time, but incentive changes things. Being true to effort adds a hint of promise to the surrounding air. You are flowing, accomplishing.

The bell barely rings as you open the door. This threshold is last time you will be this far apart. You exchange looks of recognition and erase the gap between you. Even though the house is not pristine, you are vibrant. There's no need to prepare a banquet because you're eating for one; however, as you expand your acquaintance, you travel the course of a living feast. In the spaces of getting to know, there's much sweet connective silence. Feeling that pulse-like force again, is the first of many rewards in the company of your better self.

In Registered Dieticians Not Trust

Food Fight #30

I continue to hold each person up as their own best expert in many areas, especially with basic study and using the intuitive, guiding, spiritual portion of their being. Trusting in other “experts,” without checking them out, is a risky business. Many governments, groups, researchers and scientists are historically untrustworthy. Also, individuals made popular due to media exposure and others who claim superior knowledge due to schooling, training, research or studies can be biased by their agendas and the agendas of whoever writes or sponsors their paychecks. Far too many who are supposedly telling us things for our own good, do not have our best interests in mind; and will therefore. transgress for a piece of bread and trespass against us.

Besides the mostly untrustworthy Food and Drug Administration, now comes The American Dietetic Association and their registered dieticians as yet another example of who not to quickly trust. Many members of this group would like you to believe Pesticides Are Good For You - a message sponsored by the likes of pesticide-producer Monsanto and other corporate producers of non-nutritious items who need you to swallow whatever they put before you. Lobbying and succeeding within the ranks of registered dieticians in America shows big business is willing to put forth any effort to earn your trust.

Trust Not If You Ask Not

In so many ways, we get reassuring messages that tell us to “eat and shut up.” Instead we must “ask questions” – something most children are encouraged to do because it helps them learn but most adults are discouraged to do so they won't. Perhaps that's why most adults never learn, trusting too much without asking enough.
