In the Spirit of Cleaning Trash our of a Church to Celebrate Thanks Giving.
When we turn on the TV and hear someone else going to court or to jail and killings daily…we are living in a Broken Promised Land. LET’s not settle for less than words of being ‘The Promised Land”, let’s make it reality.
This quote by the Father of the American Revolution, Tom Paine, it what I am after. (People put their lives on the line 200+ years ago against the largest Empire of it’s time, because of dreams like this.)
“When shall it be said in any country of the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive…when these things can be said, then may that country boast of its constitution and government.”~ Thomas Paine
This Allan Jackson “That Would Be Alright” is not too much for this overworked and underpaid Generation to ask for: “If everybody everywhere had a lighter load to bare and a little bigger piece of the pie, we would be living a pretty good life and that would be alright.” Those not moral enough to kill, or support killing for “Corporate Empire, are going to get whatever they want from the coming rekindled Group W Bench that Arlo go his name by littering.-Been lettering in his spirit,,,sometimes in his “kill, kill, kill talk to the shrink at the Draft Board where they said, “You’re our boy.” I wouldn’t advise going that far for my lettering “kill, kill, kill” out of desperation for 5 minutes alone fell on deaf ears of (Murphy Law”-Lawyers, Cops, Judges, Shrinks and Family.
But things are not alright when so many are caught in the crossfire, where money is tight and nothing is free. Everybody wonder whatever happened to the “Golden Rule” of doing on to the others how you yourself would like to be treated?? Though, I detest down on luck people who get a kick out of busting balls and stealing from other down on luck poor suckers, my focus in at the top. The top is where the Lamb was saying to 2000 years ago with this, “Woe to them from whom the stumbling blocks coming causing the little ones to stumble into doing things they would not do in a fairer life.”–paraphrased a bit. (Could never figure out why OJ, with so much money (Or at least should have.) would let anything make him kill his wife. Part of that was everyone was hearing about him and not my Rocken Down angels from the promised land awaking, which is basically “Jacob’s Dream” of angels coming up and down a ladder.)
Here is a PC Painting of THE-MEDIA-RIGHT-STORM that I see as a main culprit of times like these latter days, latter than they have ever been. Threw it together after my “lettering thing”, when was in an A-Slum called a hospital, where spent every spare minute in Business center learning all I could about computer stuff. Did send out lots of snail mail from them 5 years that would have broken most people when being treated as guilty from start with no one believing a word I had said about needing 5 minute conversation alone with lady who cut my soul open when had the poise, composure, position and shot making to pull of that New England 9-Ball Tournament, which was all my life had cared about. Laid a South West Cue down at door of Club 40’s where it poured and rained for 40 days and nights of jungle love. Maker of that 400 buck used cue died soon after and is now worth around 5 grand!!!
Guess if I could give any advise to “Religions” it would be to get down to a mind their own business way of life, following what looks to me to be the last advice given to John in Revelations 22:10-11, told not too be kept secret when says, “Let the one who does wrong still do wrong, and let him who is filthy still be filthy and let the one who is righteous still practice righteousness and the one who is holy still be holy. Next verse goes, I am coming quickly to render to them according to what they have done.-(Hope a whole lot of people occupy everything until they get what ever they want.)
That last advice sure does sound to me too be a whole lot like “Let it Be” and “Live and Let Die by the Beatles. I doubt if Paul knew those words were right near the end of the Bible. McCartney just knew it was right. On this boiling melting pot it appears to me that “THE-MEDIA-RIGHT-STORM’s stone throwing has descended out of the TV down into an overworked and underpaid society which can not mind it’s own business, with people yelling, “fire, fire, fire” of personally choices of people: be it abortions, what they do in own bedrooms etc until they harm others.
The Religious Right had best get it through their thick skulls that abortions are a fact of life and focus on getting good paying jobs for people who want to raise kids or a family. If they had put as much energy into ending war and poverty, the world would be close to the end of both,,with less abortions which nobody likes. Man, Hank Williams sang “mind your own business before TV was in every home. It has now reached to the slime Frank Zappa sang about oozing across our living rooms floors being the tool of the Government and Industry too, destined to rule and regulate you. Then we had the Eagles singing “Dirty Laundry” in song below.
But someday, control of the TV, that “Slime oozing across our living rooms floors”, Frank Zappa sang, about is going to given to them with insight, in what I call the lost Jewel of Daniel 12:3, with them shining brightly and leading many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. That will lighten many people’s heavy loads in a heart beat. The TV is such a fantastic tool of the powers that be now, that it sells wars if they are in the name of my lord.
Here is Zappa’s son doing Zappa. Find your own or make your own versions.
Am pretty sure that them with insight will understand the vision kept secret in Daniel 8:26 about stars and hosts of heaven being dragged own here by today’s establishment and trampled as human beings, along with them prisoners set free from hell in Zechariah 9:11 and Revelations 9:1-2. We all been thrown down here to this melting pot to build a brotherhood of mankind learning to share this boiling melting pot we are riding back home on.
Now I have got to post words that will help correct the Religious Right, for am very sure that they are the little horn of Daniel 7 that the saints shattered in Daniel 12:7 (Those with insight who will shine brightly in lost jewel of Daniel 12:3.) have been given over too for a time, times and half a time, seeming like to me, to help purge and refine all for the coming brotherhood of mankind learning to share this melting pot we are flying back home on.–
–Jeremiah 23 starts with, “Woe to the shepherds who are scattering the sheep of my pasture.” “They are leading people into futility and profit them nothing”, it also says in the chapter. “For from the prophets of Jerusalem ( Now also the Church.) pollution has spread through the world.– —paraphrased a touch from Jeremiah 23:15. Jeremiah 23:20 makes clear that chapter applies now as when written and 2000 years ago when Israel has the same strict letter of the law leaders as we have today, crucifying the man daily. Yet the chapter ends with how to produce liberty in Jeremiah 23:33-40, with a stern warning against claiming the oracle (Or burden depending on version read. I prefer “The New American Standard” for a few verses that sound too Authoritarian for me. But read them all.) of the lord for each man’s own words will become the oracle. That sounds like liberty & freedom to do as one wants.
”What you do not make free will never grow. The idea that you can make others grow and help their growth, that you can direct and guide them, always retaining for your self the Freedom of the Teacher, is NONSENSE, a Dangerous LIE which has retarded the growth of millions and millions of Human Beings in the World. Let Man have the Light of Liberty. That is the only condition for growth…Loyalty to petrified opinion has never yet broke a chain or freed a Human Soul.” -~Samuel Clemons
Someday, I see “the church and all religions taking care of many of today’s social concerns of mine, rather than leaning on the Govt to do. Things like opening lots of not-for-profit health care clinics, probably or hopefully funded by donations. Also they should have first class homeless shelters to help people down on their luck to be able to get back on their feet. Do Figure That Social Security Will Also Help Much More When The Whole Cap Is Removed. (Only way to get back what the $-TRILLIONS Stolen From It.) And my foreign policy would be for them “mind their own business religions to export Thanks Giving Dinners” to countries in the most need, with Rock and Roll Bands of all variety holding Mini-Woodstocks at the 800+ overseas Military Bases to be turned into MASH Units and other needs, protected at first by our Soldiers, or True Peace Keepers.
That all reminds me of first time heard a small town local band sing this Green Grass and High Times forever out in some field back in 70’s, when us kids were living the sixties were partying in. It was about 15 miles walk west to North Bridge were first shot of Liberty was fire around the world. Let’s hope this coming liberty lasts forever.
We all must learn these words of Tom Paine against strict justice and get down too corrective justice. Only thing I remember from the Talmud of the Jewish People is, “If the world continues to insist in strict justice it will not endure.” There is a worldwide year of jubilee coming in Isaiah 25, that any generation could have and should have held anytime that they wanted to hold one. At that time the veil will be removed from all Nations’ and Peoples’ eyes, and they will understand what they have never heard before.
Tom Paine–“An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty–It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates his duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”
My dream is to fulfill Isaiah 23:17-18 and 24:21-24 where the kings of the earth are thrown in jail (Retiring to Mansions on hills works for me,) the profits of this Beautiful Planet are used for food and fine clothing for those who need it. Then we can have that big party of Isaiah 25, where we Celebrate Thanks Giving Diners of being passed over the insanity of our times.. That will be when the veil will be lifted from all nations eyes, and they understand what they have never heard before.-That last part about understanding has to be what is meant, at the end of Isaiah 52.–
–Dorothy Lemus: -~” May i suggest for the new year avoiding all titles such as liberals, rep, demo, progressives, races, color, educational idiots,etc. and come to a realistic confederation of humanistic individuals understanding and taking over this country and changing it to a better, healthier, educated, spiritual, hard-working, united place to breath in. love and light.”
I will leave you with an Arlo Guthrie tune “Under Cover of Night off his 1996 Mystic Journey album. “I will take to the road under cover of night. You come or you stay whatever feels right. Who will pay the price for freedom learn the disciplines of the road? Many have tried few succeeded, so I am told.” Those disciplines of the road sure seem like we have to give each other some space to be ourselves, especially when coming into new area. (That has been hard for a small town dude with a big city altitude.)
“Who will pay the costs-price for freedom, learn the disciplines of the road, many have tried few succeeded, so am told.?”-Arlo.
“Am figuring giving people space is where them disciplines come from. Like not coming in to town like me, a small town dude with a big city altitude.”–Michael Cheverie Dewey
When we get to Tom Paine’s dream here we will be an example of how things are done right so we could export a better way of life all over the world.
