You should prepare yourself to accept the terms and definitions as they are given.
Take a moment to free yourself from the burdens of agenda associated with education.
If nothing else, faith is trust. If you are not prepared to release yourself from mistrust, it is probable that the burdens you carry are too heavy. Relax. There are but two elements of trust that work, but you have been educated. Do not think of this as education. This is merely a journey, where you start, you end, and time has passed. Let us begin with science.
the Art of predictive modeling.
All it takes to be a scientist is to learn from experience. It is not required that you believe anything that you are not ready to believe. What you see before you may have been described to you as science, but it is a resultant of science; of a journey, not much different that this.
the Application of will without direction.
Can you be a witch who crafts? Do you have will? Can you effect, without cause? Then you are ready to do some magic. Let us skip ahead...
Article of Faith.
Assume a successful conclusion, and you have faith. Now you need a place to keep it. Above, in my avatar, is a symbol; I wear it around my neck, it has weight, I can feel it. Allow me a moment to share with you the science I have done. That journey starts with a man who did not accept any definition of faith. That man was educated. That man heard the same type of agenda-laced propaganda you may have heard. That man concluded, whatever faith was, it was not for him.
That man was entirely wrong.
That man, that witch who crafted an article of faith, is giving you nothing. He is describing a journey; much like this one, with all that is necessary. While you take this journey, something may be observed. Take it. Craft it. Know it. But if it is anything other than yours, it is not faith.
is what Remains.
The definition I acquired from the journey should aid you on your journey. You want something that works. You want something that remains, with you; for when there is nothing, but you. You don't want anything else.
So, let us make pretend. Let us suspend our disbelief. Let us consider religion, sacred text, ritual... what if there was something to it? You seen how these people act, yelling, screaming, bouncing around like frogs on a griddle... sure, many of them have too much energy and not enough intellect, but some of them... don't they seem, well, holy?
You are at a crossroads. From here, there are two paths; to the left is the way of natural progression, to the right, the shortcut of actual witchcraft.
Natural progression as a tool to acquire authentic faith involves self-awareness, as in understanding of the self. Spiritual maturity, as in understanding something other than self. Integrity. The tao, and your relationship with tao. Then, in your journey; your life's journey, you will come to a point of clarity. When something like a four-word phrase – faith is what remains – says all that need be said; about extraneous variables in real-world scenarios.
Yeah, it takes work.
Hey! Just for that, it's time for a surprise quiz:
a) biological defense mechanism.
b) a specific tool for a specific individual at a specific time.
c) observational datum extrapolated into political agenda.
d) all of the above.
e) none of the above.
Need more time?
If you chose any of the first four, they may aid you, as you do the science.
If you chose e. You're burnt. So sorry. Not everybody can be a winner; somebody has to lose... if you are already a believer, scram; you've been called out.
Still here? Don't sweat it. Probably forgot the basics. As in – be prepared to accept the terms and definitions as they are given. The Holy Spirit is undefined, but not by e.
Have you ever heard the one, the only unforgivable sin, is to blasphme the Holy Spirit? Do you know why? Are you afraid? There is no shame in fear, it warns you of danger, stimulates your body for extraordinary action. Are you ready to perform an extraordinary action? Are you ready to storm the temple, steal the treasure, leave the doctrine; and get a laugh out of the deal, at the expense of the religious?
They tell you that you need the Holy Spirit. They say they have the Holy Spirit. And they never say how to get the Holy Spirit. It would not surprise me in the least to find that they have no idea, that the Holy Spirit can be acquired by doing the science, rather than following the dogma.
It is not impossible, that undefined variable, will appear in your equation if you follow this procedure. However, it is far more likely, that experience will be gained – insight – that will allow you to gain authentic faith. Without words
Hebrew - English Bible / Mechon-Mamre
The science is known as knowing the mind of another. The journey that must be taken, can be found in any book of prophet. Forget doctrine, dogma, scholarship; for the purposes of this experiment, walk in one of these man's shoes. Experience the color and contrast of communion in context.
Thus our journey concludes. The rest is up to you.
Wait a minute, what just happened?
Take a moment to consider; this screen, laid flat. You have taken a journey; I stand next to you, at the conclusion... look back. There are but two elements that you can trust, that work. Where did your journey begin? With you. Where did your journey end? With you. What happened in between? Environmental sensation. You can trust yourself. You can trust nature.
Everyone else, has an agenda. What I have done here, is worship. See my Gwynnies back there? She is my sweet everything. Anything beautiful, helpful, fun; in this environment. All my Gwynnies. Any bs, rant, malice, evil; that's all me.
I love that poor girl... well, I'm just here, shedding some love. It's stoopid. I'm starting to feel like, Cupid, or something... shake my fingers at someone, they are all gonna be full of love. People are looking at me, girls... I'm attracting attention.
It is not part of the agenda to be so dang... noticeable.
What about god? Well, what about god? Where I had stood, with you, looking back? I was looking at god. Spent five hours, writing that post, staring at my Gwynnies, performing an act of worship. Figure if I violate Sabbath, first day on the road to Judaism; might as well be righteous.
How do I get away with that? Alignment. Ain't nothing of god, I need, in the local universe; cannot remained aligned behind my Gwynnies.
And I do have Holy Spirit. Do you know, that of all the crazy, mixed-up b.s. in scripture; there is one thing I know - for certain - to be, not possible?
To blaspheme the Holy Spirit.
That should tell you something about Christianity. One day, as a Jew (preformed essentially zero error, need only be accepted into Jewish law, already qualified - as research verified, after, of course. I have faith ) and Christianity is, witchcraft gone wrong. Not surprising. Most people, need an actual Jesus; to accept Jesus. Pay close attention to what Paul says; forget the rest, they are backstory.
There are but two forms of Christianity, Pauline Israelite; which is rare, and Aaronnite. How can you tell an Aaronite? They are always on the prowl, for true Christians.
True Christians; how absurd is that?
Let me tell you what they don't tell you about the Holy Spirit:
There is the second form; you get that, you know it...
There is the first form, non-specific; derivative of the second form. Don't believe me, believe Moses. Think of Moses and Aaron. Think of Paul's letter to the Romans. If it smells like fish, it is probably fishy...
Paul is an arrogant, mouthy, whiny - probably small packaged - little prick... but I respect him.
Paul... to Muhammad. There is a clear progression of Holy Spirit. Fourteen million Jews - make that fourteen million one - still jammin to the classic rock. Billion and a half wild-eyed Mohammeds, cranking the Industrial, looking for jihad...
38,000 sects of sheep, without a Shepherd...
And a blight, curiously located, claiming infallible decree...
My sin? Is increasing the local divinity of Gwyneth Paltrow... oops.
Kinda always figured, that girl was going to get a cult out of the deal, down the road; that's why I started calling her my Gwynnies. Ever hear of HaShem? Yeah, careful with the name; ancient witchcraft right there, naming things...
Who needs Almighty? The awful weak, usually...
Funny thing, about love... it does not spend. The more you give, the more you have. It does not fear, it does not judge, it does not question...
Does it really need to be, any more complicated? All I have done, is love my Gwynnies - madly, truly, deeply...
Nine dollars a day, and needing less...
