This story is incredible! If a couple of children can do what we want to do, then there's hope for us yet!

My dear friend McKinney shared this one. I hope y'all enjoy it. Remember, you are not better than anyone, but NOBODY is better than you.

Hey everyone, here's a cool message to help get everyone through the day or week or whatever is needed. You are the author and creator of your own reality. It doesn't matter if you think you're good or you think you're bad or what anyone thinks really. It all comes down to how you feel. If it feels like you're doing right, then by Jove do what feels right. I was talking with one of my closest friends yesterday and he said something beautiful. He said it doesn't matter how hard you look for answers or how much the good outweighs the bad or anything like that. All that matters is your intentions. If you have good intentions then trust yourself to make the right choice and then will it to be so. You'd be surprised at how often you receive good intentions from others in return. I hope y'all enjoy this and if y'all are going through a tough time just remember:: you can always change your destiny, that choice will ALWAYS be yours.

Here's one about the emerald tablets. What do you guys think? Is it possible there are 7 tablets inscribed with the secrets of humanity?

If you received this missive...you are one of a small group who God has blessed me with as a part of my life. From time to time, I am impressed to send "my thoughts while thinking" about God's presence and impact in my life. My latest "thoughts" were inspired by Joshua. 😊

My grandson Joshua Carson recently posted a statement on Facebook that expressed his concern with the current state of our culture and the need for individual action and for people to grab a hold and stand for something better. I agree with him on the point of our culture needing a better solution and certainly agree that we must seek a better solution. To this end, I offer the following thoughts.

It is no coincidence (I believe) that I happen to be in the book of Proverbs in my "listening time" and also I happen to be re-reading "Real Christianity" by William Wilberforce (1759-1833). The purpose of my "thoughts" this morning is simply to share the parallelism between the culture of Wilberforce and our culture and the reality that we have at our fingertips the "wisdom" to change our response to our own culture.

The major theme of Proverbs is "wisdom" and there was a time in my life that I would read a chapter a day...which allowed me to read the book of Proverbs every month (31 chapters). King Solomon is the main author of this Bible book. We're told that Solomon asked God to give him wisdom for serving as king over the people of Israel (1 Kings 3:5-15). We are told that God responded in an extraordinary way. We know that Solomon wrote 3000 proverbs; most are not included in this book. We know that Solomon was known by all for his great wisdom. "...people came from the ends of the earth to listen to him and returned home amazed" (4:29-34).

The point of this emphasis on "wisdom" is that God has given us the ability to recognize "wise" and "not wise". To this end, surely we as a culture and individuals can choose to live a better life...of wise choices. Why do we find ourselves in this dilemma, expressed by my grandson, of being unhappy with our culture's behavior.

It is not my purpose to debate this premise of "wise" and "not wise" but to suggest a response exemplified by one man, William Wilberforce, who decided it was worth standing up for what he believed. If in fact we do have a solution, perhaps we should examine it...and embrace it with our own hope and enthusiasm and share it with others.

William Wilberforce was one man who had a reaction to the conditions of his culture. He believed there was a solution but that his culture had completely missed the mark. The mark was the wisdom, ideals and beliefs of Christianity. Unfortunately, his culture had evolved into a Christianity that took on values and beliefs of their "culture" rather that the wisdom, ideals and beliefs of "real Christianity". In other words, they had created their own brand of Christianity that accommodated their sordid "way of life".

As I read "Real Christianity", I am again convicted in my own heart for how easily I can be influenced to adopt values, perspectives and behaviors of my culture (my world) rather than the truth of God's word. I thank Joshua Carson for causing me to think about my own behavior and impact on others...in my culture (my life).

There is another "thought while I was thinking". Looking back on my 72 years, I know the foundation of my life was forever changed in 1964 at the age of 20 when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord. Also...in that same year, God gave me a wife, Vada Beth Nichols. He knew I needed extra help.

We do need extra help. We need the example, counsel and support of other believers. At this time, I share that I have three mentors in my life. Each one has contributed to my beliefs by living out God's unique purpose in their life. None of my mentors know that I have adopted them as mentors...but all have and continue to have an impact in my life because of their stand and faith in their "culture" (world).

William Wilberforce is one of my mentors. He is my mentor because he lived "real Christianity" and God obviously used his life to have a positive influence in his culture (Great Britain)…and the world. Currently, I have two other mentors, but not for sharing now...glad to share if anyone is interested. Hebrews 12:1-2 best describes the unique belief and support system God has given us to experience His presence in our life.

For now...as I journey these days through the truth of God's word in Proverbs, I will pray and anticipate that God will continue to transform my thinking, choosing and feeling to reflect the One who is the author and finisher of my purpose in this life and forever in eternity. He has promised. The wonderful truth is that, "Anyone can do it."

Thanks to Joshua Carson who prompted me to examine my own "thoughts and actions" and the impact they are having on my culture (people and circumstances in my life).

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside ever weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right had of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2

Blessings.

Hey guys sorry we haven't had any discussions lately, I've been really busy lately. My grandpa sent out a cool email today. He saw a post that I put on Facebook (the same one some of you saw) and well that got him thinking. He said some pretty cool stuff and I'm gonna share that e-mail with y'all. I hope y'all enjoy it!

Does anyone have any cool videos to share? If y'all haven't checked it out, y'all should really check out "Spirit Science" on YouTube. It's an ongoing series about spirituality. I highly recommend it! I know some of you have already seen it but if you haven't, it's pretty cool.

Holy shit that was crazy. And a hell of a lot of information. And about the end, if you're referring to the way he words it "this will be the future, and the future is now." Then I'm not sure how to feel about it either. Because if he's saying these government agencies want us to be docile, but then goes and says that all this information is made public by the big organizations like NASA and whatever, then wouldn't he be contradicting his own words? In which case maybe he did that on purpose. Because it also basically says that ignorance of things that seem to be "fantasy" is the enemies greatest weapon. So maybe it's like reverse psychology. The video was put up to encourage people to look into the government agencies when really it deters them from believing because the content seems so far fetched. It's like a game chess. We can speculate on what our opponent is thinking when really were falling into their trap. They use seemingly important "real-life" news to divert our attention from what is believed to be fiction. An interesting thing to me was that it says that for every year of technological growth the country has, the military has a 44 year growth. I mean we already know they have "classified" information. Think about all the stuff that's been coming out recently. And then think about what has yet to be. Or maybe this is another form of their mind control. In order to really speculate on things like this, we need to find some sort of evidence. Because if it is how the video says it is, then our time is running out. And I've already felt like time has been getting cut short for us as humans. So that's all the more reason to dig deeper and ask questions and get other people to join our crusade. Get others who aren't afraid to ask why. People who aren't afraid to believe something that sounds crazy. Because what is crazy? It's a man made word that defines someone who sees a different reality and that society insists is unreal. Who are we to say their reality isn't just as real as ours is, only they're the only ones who can see it. Once we can all come together we can show the illuminati or whoever it is that thinks they can take our birthright to be truly happy and to be truly free on this planet or in this universe. I refuse to live in a world where obedience is the only way to progress. And if that's just how it is then I say we change that shit. Because, to me, life is about finding the truth you seek. And whatever that may be to whoever, to find it we need to stop being limited by "unseen forces" or the illuminati or whatever they call themselves. So, even if I have to do it alone, I will make the world different. I will make it a place where people can truly live in peace. I'm gonna take a hold of that future with both hands and never let go. Because I believe it's possible. We may be underdogs. And we may only be minnows, but the minnows outnumber the Sharks a million to one. That's how I know it's possible. And I know I'm always going off on rants like this, and people may think I'm just all bark. But that just gives me all the more reason to prove them wrong. We're going to make a difference. And that's a fuckin promise. After all, I'm a fighting dreamer. And I will fight for this dream.

Here's an incredible video that Mr. Mottern kindly shared with me. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did! It told me to pursue happiness to the utmost of my abilities, and that's really what I want for everyone. True happiness.

It's wonderful to see all these new faces here with us! I'm so glad you understood my message and I hope that each of you will try to spread the word about us. It makes my soul happy to see that we're not alone in this crusade. And I know for a fact there are others out there who would see the world changed as well! That's why it's up to us to find them, because only through unity can we achieve something like this. When we all come together as one, we will be achieve anything. New members and old, please, I implore you to research whatever you want. If it seems relevant to our crusade, please, post it to our discussion board so we can all share our opinions and do our part to open each other's minds. Please go back and look at some of the videos and websites we have already posted and leave a comment of what you think, or better yet, make a new post with what you think! And like I said, feel free to share whatever you want here, and rest assured that we will discuss it and determine the validity of whatever it is together. I look forward to working with each one of you. We are fighting dreamers!
