Reason to Rejoice

Hidden pondI was walking on a trail in the Watchung Reservation with my three dogs. It was a hot day and this is the best time to go into the woods were the temperature is typically 10 to 20 degrees cooler. There were very few people in the woods, most likely because a Saturday in August draws people to beaches and pools. It was a pleasure and though we did see others in the woods it was very quiet and I felt very isolated.

I sat for a few moments to give the dogs a rest and to watch and listen to nature unveil itself around me. I sat on a log and I was able to spot some deer about a tenth of a mile away. I also spotted a woodpecker. Later while walking I would see some other birds but most are skittish and once they hear me they move so fast I can’t identify them.

Still as we walked through the woods I couldn’t help but wonder how many persons walked through here. I thought back to the times of George Washington and his men and how they probably passed through here on the way to the battle of Union. I thought about the local Indians and how this was their stomping grounds.Then I looked at all the tress that lovers and travelers carved their initials on.

So many people have passed through here. Some may have thought themselves important. But nature always brings you back to reality as the awesomeness raises my own awareness of my mortality and lack of importance. I am humbled as I walk among the trees many that may be as much as one hundred or more years old.

It dawned on me. Life is a gift and the short time we are here we need to appreciate and use to the best of our abilities. By working towards the greater good with a true love for life and the life of all around us we become a very important part of the life of the world. We become givers of life to the next generation and to those that live around us. Now that is an important function and responsibility.

We all have a responsibility to live to our fullest. That is the gift we call life. So I left the woods feeling invigorated and joyful.

I wish all my walks were as productive!

Have a great life!

Of Human Sacrifice to the Nature Gods

I woke the other evening upset. The horrors of the recent months just keep pestering me and not letting me rest. After the recent news I have come to realize we are fast becoming a society of idol worshipers, offering the blood of others for our well-being. And worse yet it is the people in power which are doing nothing but promoting this holocaust.
We the people are being fed lies that we need to feed our Mother Earth (Gaia) or she will surely destroy us. We can no longer exist on this earth and prosper. We must exist in servitude to the great goddess. We are told from every media outlet that if we do not do these things that Gaia will surely kill us all! That we are but mere worthless visitors on this planet and every other creature has more rights than human beings.
Surely, you are saying you have not heard this. But you have, and I have been hearing it loud and clear since the 1970s. However, back then we were told that because of our existence that the world would come to an end and would all die of Global Freezing. Luckily false prophets typically give dates of expectations and this was supposed to have happened by the 1990s. Then by the late 1980s the false prophets realized this was not going to work, so they now began to propagate Global Warming and that we would all die when the polar ice caps melt because of human ineptitude and again we were supposed to all be dead by the year 2000. When that didn’t happen, and we had some very cold years in the first decade of the new millennia they changed their propaganda to declare that climate change is our enemy and if we do not do something about it we will all be dead in another fifteen to twenty years.
The problem here is twofold. They want us to worship the earth under fear of punishment of their false gods and the second that we humans are worthless and do not have the right to exist and create in nature. This discounting of the human persons is nothing new and goes back thousands of years to the time of human sacrifice to the gods. This is where we are today.
Because of the false prophets and their religion wanting the sacrifice of others for the good of this earth, it has rightly become a culture of human sacrifice. This human sacrifice is the culture of death. The interesting thing is that the proponents of this false religion, the worship of the earth above human life are typically the powerful and wealthy. They want to get everyone to serve them by serving their false god. Just like Hitler got his people onboard with his Arianism and the goal of the perfect human beings, they would not suffer the handicapped and hence would only sacrifice for their goal. To that end they offered up the blood of the Jews, the handicapped and the Christians that refused to bend to their will. This is being repeated. In the name of not accepting any hardships and for the good of the “people” or for their great goddess Gaia they want to make human life expedient.
In New York State the great demon Governor Mario Cuomo has legalized infanticide. He has done this by revoking medical care to babies that may be born alive and were unwanted. This horror has since been the target of good willed people who have tried many times to pass the Born Alive Act to protect living babies outside the womb. But the Federal Government continues to reject the act. So many of the politicians receive funding from the greatest evil organization in this country Planned Parenthood that it has become next to impossible for Democrat politicians of good morals to speak their mind. But are there really any Democrats left of good moral standing? The party has become the poster child for abortion.
Then most recently the second prophet of the goddess Gaia, demon No.2 NJ Governor Murphy, has legalized assisted suicide. This is the ultimate in indifference to human life and suffering. Persons who are at a point of suffering are now going to be told they should kill themselves because it is not worth living with their affliction. In many countries where this has existed for some time, like in the Netherlands the elderly.cease to go to physicians for fear of being put to death legally. This is the path to the world that Adolf Hitler envisioned, but instead of Arianism it is all for the goddess Gaia.
What would a world full of perfectly healthy people be like? It would be a world where there is no love, no compassion and a total selfish disregard for the any other person. It is quick becoming so, the wealthy and powerful will feel better about themselves as the kill off the sick for the praise of the earth. All hail the Goddess of Climate Change and bow down before her so that we may have our comforts and death to all as a sacrifice to her that impede our materialism and selfishness in any way.
This is the way of it, folks, I am all for caring for our environment but for the good of humankind. I am for caring and loving all from conception to natural death. Sure there are some instances where there may be extenuating circumstances but it is not in most cases that way. We must protect human life as a precious, simply because it really is. The world was here before us and will be after so please stop the nonsense of saving the earth. It is care for each other by caring for our environment not at the cost of our lives for the environment.
Now that I go this out of my system I hope I can sleep better.

My first pass, I thought I was recording with my good microphone and then realized I had recorded the whole installment with the computer mice because it was unplugged! Well, I rerecorded it and felt much better. I am doing this live and only making minor edits as I go. I want it to have the real sense that I am speaking to my listeners.

What are these things?

What are these things?
Yellow and white
They make light glimmer
Bring out the bright
Of what is in sight

There are metals
Of all sorts
But in comparison
To this group
It is no sport

Others don’t have that shine
Others can’t bring the time
That makes the good
Sweet as the finest Wine
A special night
A gift at dinner
A pearl wrapped
In any will be a winner

A painting
Of the finest sort
Is that much greater
When it’s framed
In the precious drawn from ore

Glory of God
The world wants to extol
It’s got to be Silver
Platinum or Gold

From the ancient world
To modern times
These illustrious metals
Bring out the rhymes

The precious coins of
Rome, Egypt and Greece
Empires of Spain
And Great Britain
Not the least
Tell the stories of Love and War
Sometimes peace
All wrapped up in the Golden Fleece

The rapper wears
A rather large one
Round his neck
A sister prays a golden rosary
At a sick man’s
Death bed

Many more uses
You can see
But the most precious
That shines like the sun
Eternally done
Is the one that makes
You and me, we

The precious metal
Pulled, Shaped
And twisting
Going round a finger
Always existing

But the tragedy lies
In that Humans
Do not see
The greatest Gift of all
Is actually free

Love is the thing
We should all be expounding
If we all share the gold
The world would be astounding

As happiness would reign from shore to shore
The precious metals
Hence be a symbol of Love
Like a rose petal
A seed of friendship forevermore
