Thanks orangetom. You are correct about my journey and what a journey it has been. This has become the only venue I have that I can share my thoughts, beliefs and views. As you surmised, correctly I might add, the usual suspects do indeed seek to place labels on me. My wife and I are worlds apart on this subject although she has been on a journey as well. I fear for her as I don't think she believes in herself enough to continue the journey, there is much doubt and fear in her.
Yes..indeed Rykuss...Journey indeed. "The Usual Suspects" is sort of a generic term I often use to describe what I tend also to call "Wildlife in it's natural habitat." Often associated with life in the fast food lane. Little thinking going on..mostly emoting...or instant gratification values at work. Often needing and demanding to be "Flash danced " through life's hurdles at someone else's expense or "RISK."
Sometimes Rykuss this is even done by members of your own family.
It is not unusual that ones other half would be so different as women and men are quite different in what they value or from the position they think.
With most men or males of any conscience and responsibility they tend to think from a position of RISK Taking...and weigh out much of their thinking from this position and starting point.
With women and females it tends today to be more from a position of "options"...hence the tendency not to desire to take RISKS or be subject to information's detailing RISKS...or things outside of the comfort zone.
Males of good conscience are not afforded the luxury and option of fear in like manner to the female in this social structure. This is also politic and the nature of politic. It means that some people are more expendable and disposable while "Equality " is happening. It just happens to be one which is often carried out by default...even by the males.
To be able to live for your fears..in a system where someone else by default takes the RISK out of life..means options....a security blanket. This is very much how the body politic works..which is why they can easily pass of this nonsense like. "Tax the Rich." They are willing to make one group expendable and disposable for votes from the easily emoted. Understand now? All the while trying to teach and preach equality...and fairness...at someone else's expense ..preferably not the expense of the body politic. Got it now??
"No one sees what we do."
If you know what you are reading you can find this too in the Word.
The word for something hidden..not seen or understood by the majority of people out here...but known only by the adepts trained in it is..."Occult."
What you are looking for is answers to things ..not ordinarily seen by the naked eye..trained only in instant gratification results..and emotions.
This requires a different thinking, a different work, a different knowledge base from which to start. Different tools.
The eye/spirit must be disciplined with different tools..different knowledge such that it can filter out all the confetti of this world. And there is alot of confetti out here.
By the way...in case you have not surmised by now..Much of Politics is very very feminine. Of the flesh and the things of the flesh. But it uses a very peculiar spirit to achieve it's goals.
One of subtlety and deception to move and motivate people. And much of politics is Occult.
This is one of the problems with your candidate..he does not appeal to the flesh of most ..per se. Only to those who have given up much of the flesh. He is not selling dreams where it can be done on the government dole..without RISK and with someone else paying for it. With a system in place to take the RISK out of life for us...as the feminine desire.
He is saying ..get the government out of almost all of it...and the people take care of it themselves. A very very dangerous position to take today.
Dangerous to government and whoever is the government ...privily, secretly.
As for this..and your wife.
I fear for her as I don't think she believes in herself enough to continue the journey, there is much doubt and fear in her.
The time draws nigh..when she will not have the choices or options at hand about the journey. Nor will the rest of us. It is going to be a shock to many.
Time to gird your loins so to speak.
Recently my son has come to the conclusion that he does not believe in God. I'm not certain that his belief hasn't been negatively impacted based on peer pressure, the way he has been treated by the clergy, a combination of the two or a genuine calling into question of his beliefs.
That is fine Rykuss. No problem. This is to be expected in a world raised on the fast food lane of thinking. It was designed and engineered to be this way. You see the results of this in much going on here on these boards...and in this world surrounding us.
I am going to tell you how I know that this works. You don't have to buy into this of course but it will happen whether you or I are ready for it or not. For we are not the pivotal cog in this wheel. We are not the determiner. Nor is your son.
Chosen people do not decide...they do not choose..they are chosen. They are plucked out of the dregs that this world really is. We do not have a choice in it. When it happens ..God will call us and put His work into our hearts/souls. We will not be able to stop it. And furthermore ...God will lead us onto paths in which certain peoples and events will occur or be put in front of us to our benefit and education...but for His purposes. This is not up to us.
The popular method of most Churches today is "You choose...you accept...you decide...it is all up to you. None of it is up to you or us.
Chosen people don't choose. They are chosen.
God's people don't accept...they are made acceptable to Him...and for His purposes.
The total opposite of what is taught in most churches today.
The pattern of.... You choose, you decide...you accept..you put your monies in the box....this comes from paganism...it is not Christian.
Your son is correct to not believe in most of what passes for Christianity today. He may not know why ..but his instincts are correct. For many of the Churches are teaching and preaching pagan doctrine dressed up to look and smell like Christian to those who do not know. This too is Occult...much like politics. And who is in bed with the churches...politics...through the tax system...price supports for the churches. Understand why they are teaching the opposite of Christianity?? Understand now?? Got it?? It looks and smells like Christian to those who do not know..but it is not.
If God wants you or your son or anyone else...you will have no choice. He will pluck you out of this corrupted world and put His way and Word into you.
Whenever someone tells me I have to accept...warning bells/flags go up immediately ..and my radar ratchets up several notches. I think that in time you too will learn this...and not by choice.
Our daughters,.... Their concerns at the moment are typical for teenage girls nearing graduation, namely their car, texting and whatever happened on that show they watch with their mother.
This is not unusual..this is part of that "options" the safety net so many people desire. It is also why you see me making a point of those with mostly a television and movie education..in the flesh ..and the things of the flesh. If you do not catch on to it...people begin to think what is on the television and movies is an entitlement...deserved..preferably with someone else taking the RISK to bring it to them. Be warned of this kind of thinking...male and female both. Particularly as the male also becomes more feminized today. For he will begin to think and expect just like a female....just like a politician.
And you can see that on these boards too.
I am not well educated, I have no problem admitting that, which is the driving force behind instilling the value of it to my children. Most of my knowledge comes from my experiences. I have had some experiences in my life that defy belief and fortunately a few were shared by others, which helps affirm that I am not crazy. Having shared or tried to share these experiences with my wife has always made her feel very uncomfortable. She doesn't like to hear about them and will not listen to them anymore.
I too am not well educated. Mostly self taught and self read. As I said ..nothing wrong with education if you know you are getting an education and not confetti.
With me too it is certain experiences.
It is not unusual for women and very feminine men not to want to know about experiences which will take them out of their safety zone or comfort zone.
This is an important key to understanding the nature of a man and being a man in this world. It is also a key in understanding the nature of this world surrounding us.
I will tell you something about most women and also the feminne...they can spot confidence in another person from miles away in the dark...like radar.
They may be afraid of their own shadow...but they very quickly know who is not. Even faster than most men. I am not kidding you here. If nothing else ..their fears teach them this skill.
Often as a man...you will find yourself walking alone and doing things alone for the benefit of your family/loved ones. While you are out here taking these RISKS...no one is coming to help you. No one is coming to RESCUE you..to Flash Dance you through these hurdles.. should you be hurt or possibly killed. You must often navigate everything alone...and bring the fruits back to a people who do not want to know how they got there...they just want the buffet line set up without knowing how it was done. Understand?? This is also how politics works. It is also what they are teaching in public schools...that we deserve things because we are good people...preferably without RISK. Entitlement. And who pays for Public education???
No one asks what you had to do to get it there...they just want and expect it to be there. Like on television and in the movies.
This is often how a man works and takes first place RISKs to keep an maintain a home in which he often comes in last..sometimes behind the dog and pets.
Do you know some of these men??
It is because of these experiences that I began to question the world around me. I tried to ignore them for so long, bury my head in the sand and just go through the motions of life, religious services, work, etc. However there is only so much I could ignore
You are correct to question the world around you for much of it...like politic ..is not the product advertised. And you cannot forever bury your head in the sand. Also ..after awhile just the motions will not be sufficient.
However ..when you begin to see it for what it is...you will find the world outside your door severely lacking.
The problem comes when you realize that someone is letting the world creep into your home by default and taking over...running things and supplanting your thinking and values with the values of the world outside your door and expecting you to keep up and even take the RISKS to make it so..while they sit back and watch/expect. This will come to a crossroads at some time...some point.
In case you do not understand it..I will explain it to you in different terms. I may have stated this on these boards before ...but I don't think so to you.
To a man who knows...Peace is the most valuable commodity he can get in this world. Peace...not Piece...understand now??
If he takes up with a woman or a woman and children..Peace is still the most valuable commodity he can get from even her....not Piece.
How many men do you know who understand this concept?? If so few men understand this ...how many women do you know who understand this as well...in lieu of the fast food lane type thinking?? How many children...or do the children think the home is for them exclusively and they are running the show through Mom??
Peace means his home is a place where he is protected from the outside world..safe to come home to for REST..and quiet. Not the outside world intruding on him constantly.
How many women do you know who understand the concept of Peace ...verses Piece??
Is this too ..hidden and occult from most of the people out here?? Do you not think that politics is capable of taking advantage of this ignorance in most of the people out here?? What do you think they are teaching in public schools..Peace or Piece??? Understand now??
Do you not think that without this knowledge and foundation most of the young people out here are going to be lost and going around in circles until they begin to think for themselves?? Or acquire the tools/knowledge/wisdom to think for themselves??
Does this sound crazy??
All I can do to ease his concerns at this point is assure him that he is not alone and that I have had the same experiences as well.
Your job as a man and father is to steady him out and teach him..prepare him as if you were a rudder for the day when he will indeed have to walk alone..as I am certain you have had to do yourself. To walk alone ...no safety net under him....and to survive. To teach him to navigate....to steer his own rudder. And not just him but your other children as well.
This is what a father of good conscience does for his flock....as a Sheperd.
And in due time..teach your son what is necessary to Sheperd his own flock.
On the matter of history, I recall my mono-toned teachers and their apparent lack of enthusiasm for teaching the subject. It's amazing that anyone would pursue a profession such as that after being subjected to such lessons. I felt that not much importance was placed on it then just as it is today with my own children. However I find myself fascinated with it because I feel it is important and that there is a lot of history lost to us, or omitted.
Absolutely correct..spot on here. I too remember the monotoned teachers on just about any topic.
Do not mistake a monotone for lack of importance. It is up to us to recognize the importance of a thing. I did not get my interest in history from public school teachers. I learned this instinctively on my own....er...perhapsed with divine guidance on the side. I found most of school..absolutely boring and barely got through...Cs and Ds..a B here or there..but not much else.
It is indeed important Rykuss. For I believe you see and sense with many of the posts here the lack of the grasp of history and what came before us...and it's relationship to what is happening here today....as much of it seems to be repeating itself in spite of our technology.
And Yes...I too discovered that much of our important History and knowledge's surrounding this history is missing...to be confirmed by people like the Luciferians I mentioned in a previous post...and others...even certain Elders in the Church.
Let me give you this one and it was many yeas before they finally broadcast this story on the History Channel with these very details.
Charlie used to run a store room where we used to go for certain specific tools and hydraulic seals. We would sometimes go there for lunch as he had better accommodations than had the rest of us.
During lunch one evening..the 2nd shift..being a bunch of loud mouthed youngsters compared to olde Charlie...we got to talking about nuclear war and Armageddon.
And Olde Charlie blurts out that he was involved in an unusual experiment back when he was in the Navy as a crewman on an ocean going tugboat.
You see..Olde Charlie...was assigned with alot of other Navy tugboats to tow many olde battleships and cruisers to an anchorage around a island in the Pacific Ocean. They had alot of science types with them..Geeks if you prefer..telling them where to put and move these ships like furniture for Momma.
Then one day they were told to move way way way back...away from everything and told to lie down on the deck and not look up until they were told to do so.
It was only then ..when the explosion took place that they had any clue as to what they had been doing.
But Charlie told me a couple of things which were shockers to me at that time.
They had towed barges loaded with animals in cages...goats, sheep , dogs, cattle, and tied them up to these ships. He told me to my astonishment that not all the ships sunk...and not all the animals died...right away.
But alot of things were contaminated with radioactive particles and they needed to spray them down with water before stepping aboard many of these ships.
Also he told me that they did these tests twice. One was an air burst ...so many thousands of feet above the ships..and the other an underwater burst...to see the results. Most of the photos you see..is of the underwater burst.
When Olde Charlie finished his tale...we "Youngsters" were left there with our mouths hanging open...speechless. We were astonished to be privy to such an tale...by someone who lived and breathed it.
I remember Olde Charlie to this day for both this tale and teaching me how to properly sharpen items on a bench grinder. To this day I can sharpen drill bits on a bench grinder by hand due to Olde Charlie's careful instruction. I don't buy many drill bits when mine get dull. I take them to my bench grinder wheel.
It was many years later when this tale finally was told on the History Channel with all the details that Charlie outlined...including that animals were put on these olde ships.
I have also been privileged to see the engine from the Civil War Ironclad USS Monitor when it was brought to dry dock here...as the holding tank was not quite finished for it up at the Mariners Museum up further in Newport News.
The engine hung upside down in the dry dock here for about 5 days with salt water spraying on it before the tank was finished.
It was again a privilege to see history itself before the bulk of the public was granted access.
When you know about history it is humbling to stand before such a item and wonder about the people who actually lived and breathed it.
So that is a nutshell version of my story. I've seen and experienced things that the world around me has no explanation for. All of these things are supposedly not connected according to the world around me, even on these forums they have different sections. My instincts tell me they and the world around me are connected. I'm just trying to figure out how, all while trying to live a "normal" life, if such a thing is possible.
They are connected ..but just not in a manner obvious to most peoples..not obvious to most naked eyes...to the limited spirit of most peoples.
Do not let it drive you crazy...as you attempt to look across the abyss...you do not want to wind up institutionalized as was the case of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
In process of time...if you are faithful...the answers will be revealed to you as they have been revealed to others. You will also learn how to question what you have learned for validity..as well as question much of what the world attempts to feed you. You will learn how to navigate the abyss..or just bypass the whole thing as not worth the time.
LOL LOL LOL...Rykuss.."a normal life" if such a thing were possible.
Indeed Sir. As the world around us moves more and more to extreme seduction and deceit....be very careful as to what they try to sell you and your family this year or the next...as "normal." Be Warned here.
As a Sheperd ..your concerns for your family are correct.
Thank you for your time and posts,
