The silent voice of wisdom

The still small voice. The still small voice… of silence. Awareness does not speak, there is no form to speak.  Awareness is formless.  In consciousness there is only consciousness. “We” discover what “we” are the awareness aware of awareness. We are like an eyeball that can’t see itself but is very aware of the presence…

The Kingdom of Love

Matt 5:20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. (ESV) Verses like that have been used by religion to put fear into people’s lives.  When fear comes, love has no chance.  That is why perfect love casts out fear.  How…

200 Proof Grace

I think Hollywood has perfected the “mind altered” movies.  You know the ones.  The dad breathes in a gas that makes him want to attack his kids which is completely out of character with his normal mode.  Or the whole town gets infected with a virus where they all start fighting with each other.  In…

Facts or Truth

I had a class in grad school that was pretty tough.  It was a class on theoretical aerodynamics (yep I am one of those).  We would start a theoretical proof from some basic assumptions that we knew were true like pressure varies with temperature (ideal gas law) and other really geeky boring stuff for most…

The Gate

Since the fall, our brains see through law.  When we ate from the wrong tree we took on a law way of thinking.  We thought in terms of lists.  In the original language, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was a tree that made us aware of what is good or bad…

Slavery is a life of no options.  Self-life is slavery.  Before the cross all you knew was selfish with a healthy dose of Sin input.  Anything was OK for us.  We had a conscience as a product of wrong fruit ingestion but it didn’t matter.  The thought of being without something was much more powerful than…

Upside Down

I must warn you this post is pretty strong.  I apologize for those who are offended but I will not apologize for the goodness of God demonstrated by Jesus on the cross, proven by a risen Jesus and realized in us with power by the Holy Spirit. Sin is a bad thing, right?  This is what…

Thimbles and Oceans

Did you know that a thimble holds about 1/2 a teaspoon?  Did you know that there are 768 teaspoons in a gallon?  Did you know there are about 187 quintillion gallons in the Pacific Ocean?  So after doing the math, did you know that there are 287,523,709,535,232,000,000,000 thimbles of water in the Pacific Ocean?  Did…
