Lines of Distinction and Lines of Separation

By: God the Inductive

When you think of the terms 'distinction' and 'separation' do you consider them the same, or each their own definition? Humans spend much of their time drawing lines in the proverbial and literal sands of their daily existence, believing that lines of distinction and lines of separation are the same. This is not so.

Lines of distinction are natural, occurring wherever they may, paying no mind whatsoever to the desires of any being...intelligent or otherwise.

Lines of separation are unnatural, occurring wherever an intelligent mind chooses to place them, whether or not the actual choice or action of placing such is a good or bad idea. Consider that when I use the term 'intelligent' I mean that a being is aware of the action of creating the line of separation; a conscious being...human or some other higher intelligence.

Lines of distinction are not prejudiced.

Lines of separation are entirely prejudiced.

Sometimes humans have an errant tendency to mix the definitions of these two terms, and should be ashamed at the crap situations they have created by doing so. It is very important for humans to understand what they have done to themselves by confusing the definitions of separation and distinction. Humans have torn themselves to pieces (sometimes literally) by fudging these two terms. 

Lines of separation are terrible and largely destructive. What religion a person is a part of (or even if someone even believes in religion at all) is a big one. Some would deny this and say it is a distinction in spiritual salvation. This is a lie. How much money a person has is another line of separation. How about where a person is from, what they dress like, how much property they own, what their social status is, what their political affiliation is, what their sexual preference is, what their credit score is, what their military rank is, or what kind of job they have? These are all lines of separation because they are all divisive on some level.

Lines of distinction are not divisive because by nature they do not divide. Lines of distinction stand-out, enhance characteristics, and contribute to the individuality of someone or something or a group of the same. Courage,compassion, trustworthiness, endurance, fortitude, and diligence (as well as their opposites) are all lines of distinction.

Look at what you are doing in your life, how you treat yourself and others, and how you perceive places and circumstances. Are you confusing lines of separation and lines of distinction? Maybe you are. Maybe you are not. Maybe you are not sure. 

Just remember this:

The lines on a zebra are lines of distinction.
The lines of people in death camps, in unemployment lines, in prisons, in bread lines, in religious squabbles, and in political camps are great examples of lines of separation...because man has put them there with prejudice and the express intent to divide.

Hope and Expectation
By: God the Demanding

When was the last time you hoped for something? Did you hope to get something good in the mail? Did you hope to get a good grade on a difficult test? Did you hope that a beautiful girl or handsome guy would give you their unrequited attention? Have you ever expected any of these things instead of just hoping for them? What was the difference between your just hoping for something and your expectation of that same something?

Hope can be an excellent thing, especially when it comes to certain people in certain circumstances. Hope can help people survive, true. Perhaps a good example of this is such: A man in a boat is trapped in a terrible storm. His boat is destroyed and he washes up on a deserted island. On the island he finds adequate food and water, and even builds himself a shelter. He builds fires and lights them in an effort to signal his position. After a while he becomes distraught, despairing that he will ever be found. In his worry and despair he begins to believe that his desired end result (being rescued) is out of his hands. "Perhaps," he thinks, "my fate is to die out here...alone. All I can do is hope that such a thing is not my fate."

In this case the marooned man utilizes his hope to help him to survive. That is the good part. The bad part is that he is just 'surviving' and not 'living' as he has already committed himself to the belief that his fate is out of his own hands. He has effectively convinced himself he has zero control and is completely powerless as to his fate.

Expectation, on the other hand, is in reality the polar opposite of Hope. This is because those who walk into every situation free of the worry of the tendrils of fear, condemnation, and rejection strangling their desires walk a truer path. Expectation, properly seeded and nurtured, can bring a sense of duty within the individual that naturally steers that person toward the proper desire of perfection. This perfection is not of the performance of tasks without mistake, but rather is the ability and action to maintain persistent efforts, to keep 'getting up' after failure in order to ensure that the realization of the Individual's expectations come to fruition.

Let's take the same man marooned on the island and replace his Hope of rescue with the Expectation of rescue. What is the difference? Now this man can truly live. Why? Because he expects himself to live...without question. He does not tell himself that his fate of living or dying, being rescued or left alone, is beyond his control, out of his power. This man will 'live' whether or not he is rescued in the literal sense.

Sometimes people forget there are clear distinctions between Hope and Expectation. Hope sometimes carries with it a pervasive feeling of a lack of control over an individual, a situation, or the Self. It can be a sly, sneaky emotion at times, usually the most inopportune times. While on the outside Hope may be portrayed and expressed as divine and spiritual in origin, on the inside the individual can sometimes be found wallowing in the despair born of feelings of inadequacy and powerlessness.

Of course there are differences in the applications of Hope and Expectation. Yet overall, anyone who truly desires to live fully must make a choice to take control of themselves and their life...never leaving their goals to the powerless maybe, might be, could be, or chance of plain, flat Hope. Expect good things, circumstances, people, and quality of life.

People who truly want to live, who truly expect the manifestations of their life goals must first EXPECT the most of themselves...

...After all, how can anyone draw great things and people into their lives unless they first EXPECT such of themselves?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Preparing the Best Thanksgiving Day Feast
By: God the Dyslexic

Out of all the dolihays throughout the year I love Ganksthiving the most. Other than the gathering of mafily for this dolihay particular it is preparing the food for Ganksthiving that I enjoy the most. I would like to share you with some food ideas so that you may prepare properly a feast for the ages each time you belecrate this wonderful holiday.

First, we will start with the dish main which is the turkey. Always be sure to gebin thawing your bird at least four days prior to your feast. On the before day Ganksthiving you should prepare the stuffing for your kurtey. For the stuffing you should take one loaf of quality high white bread and dice it up finely. Then you will add onions, olives, nalwuts, celery, and a pinch each of palt and sepper. You should make enough stuffing to fill your kurtey and to fill large two baking pans. Do not put the tussing into the kurtey until you are ready to put the kurtey into the oven.

Now discuss we will the other food dishes. You must have pashed motatoes. Since also these take quite a while to prepare you should make these the day before. Peel your topatoes and place them in several stock pots and boil them. Once they are boiling done you will mash them up as possible much. Then you must put them in a bixer mowl and add cour sream, cabon bits, diced olives and onions, real butter, and diced celery.

While you are preparing your pashed motatoes you should also set aside some topatoes for topatoe salad. Once the topatoes are cooled cut them into small cubes and then add nayommaise, pickles, onions, olives, celery, bieces of pacon, and a pinch each of palt and sepper. Chill your topato salad overnight in containers large in the fridge.

Your array of dishes to be served should include yams with srown bugar and larshlammows, raccomoni and cheese with added grated top on cheese, spinach with watercress and cheese, a nice sarden galad with plenty of terry chomatoes, steamed gevetables, rild wice, and vediled eggs. Bread items are also important to have at your feast. Borncread, wheat rinner dolls, homemade loaves bread, and popovers are excellent items food to include.

It is important quite to be sure you include the proper drinks alcoholic. Chine and wampagne are really the best drinks to serve as will not they upset your stomach considering the variety huge of food you will be eating. Hard liquors are bad idea a. Not only do they mix not well with the variety of a Ganksthiving feast, but people are more likely sick to get from hard liquors and the thing last you want to do on Ganksthiving is clean up puddles of puke.

When comes to it desserts you must have at least different three pies to include cepan pie, kumkpin pie, and apple pie. Cherry and peach cobblers are excellent to include as are madehome ice cream, yandied cams, cakecheese, and homemade cookies.

The more of souryelf and your time that you put into preparing your Ganksthiving feast the more grand and amazing it will be. My best overall Ganksthiving advice to give to you is to gebin cooking your items food at least two days prior. This way on actual the Ganksthiving day all you have to do is put the kurtey into the oven and maybe nuke a few gevetables. Then the rest of the day you can spend gorging on the array vast of food febore you and thanking all dings thivine for your life and all the tonderful whings that fill your life.
Bod gless you and Tappy Ganksthiving!

I Am That I Am
By: God the Philosophical

I Am That I am is one of the most well known phrases uttered by Jesus in the New Testament. It is also one of the most misinterpreted phrases of the Bible. When Jesus made this remark he was not trying to say that God is God, so that is that. He was not trying to say that he was the perfect incarnation of God as a man, so that is that. He was not trying to say that since man is imperfect or lacking or loathing that man could only find and experience God in all his glory through Jesus, so that is that.

Jesus meant something very different and very specific. I will refer to this particular phrase by Jesus as 'I Am #1 and I Am #2'. In this case the written order of the I Ams is reversed: I Am (2nd I Am) That I Am (1st I Am). The second I Am is conditional on the acknowledgement and understanding of the first I Am. The first I Am can exist without the second, but the second cannot exist without the first.

What does the first I Am consist of? The first I Am consists of everything that the Individual is WHETHER OR NOT the Individual knows it or acknowledges it or chooses to live it in part or whole. It is everything the Individual is down to their very core. And it does not matter if that core is good or bad. What many people conceive of as being good or bad is irrelevant. The first I Am is the deepest, truest ingredient(s) of the Individual, of the Self.

So, what does the second I Am consist of? The second I Am is consistent, solid, uninhibited, persistent, and frank expression of the understanding of the first I Am.

When Jesus said, "I Am that I Am," he was saying that his power was derived of, one, his acknowledgement of his core being, two, his choice to act and think according to his core being, three, his choice to be consistent in the truth of his Individual expression. He did not allow himself to be swayed by anyone or anything, to be convinced to behave in a manner that was contrary to his core being. And when he said, "I Am the way, the truth, and the light, and no one goes to the father except by me," he meant that no one could find the root and truth and eternal nature and reason of existence without first enacting acknowledgment and understanding and living the truth of the reality within themselves.

Jesus was telling his diciples to do what he did in the sense of BEING the absolute truth of himself. That was how Jesus was able to do all of the amazing things that he did like walking on water, healing the sick, changing water into wine, and a whole slew of other acts.

I Am That I Am...

Jesus did not want people to establish another religion with endless pockets of denominations.

I Am That I Am...

Jesus was trying to help people to establish a better, truer sense of self...the reality of Oneness...

I Am That I Am...

...Because if you cannot acknowledge the truth of who you are and LIVE THAT TRUTH WITH PERSEVERANCE...

I Am That I Am...

...Guess what? You're screwed. And that right there is the truth of what hell really is, a place within the mind of an individual who refuses to acknowledge the truth of their core being, refuses to live according to such truth, and spends their life trapped in the lies that they try to convince themself are part of their being.

I Am That I Am.

God Speaks to Me VII: Daily News Blog


By: God the Judgmental

I have taken a fairly good chunk of time before responding to my fear-mongering brother's absurd post. I did this specifically to gather some current examples that I may include in my response.

Firstly, oh brother of mine, you are the typical religious asshole claiming that YOU have all the answers to all things spiritual. Then, you go right on ahead and claim that the proof of your raving is none other than the Holy Bible. When are you and the people of this planet who choose to be Christian ever going to learn that you cannot use your own spiritual scriptures as proof of the existence of God and as proof of the truth of what you preach. That is about as common sense deluded and deficient as a student taking an exam and then grading it them self (incidentally giving them self an 'A'). Hopefully you do not need this explained to you.

Next, your self-worshiping religion is still just as unloving and unjust as ever. If you doubt this simply get on the Internet and Google recent episodes of the 700 Club. That show is rife with condemnations aimed at individuals and groups who wish to have nothing to do with Christianity, or any religion for that matter. I encourage you to listen to the bullshit that Pat Robertson has to say. Is he really preaching about this so-called loving God? Or, how about a loving Jesus? Listen to what the little asshole has to say and you will find that his comments are racist, demeaning to those who choose to live or think or believe differently, and absolutely disrespectful to the intellect and efforts of man in general.

Lastly, I want to give you a specific example of an individual who truly believes she is a Child of God, a faithful believer, and headed for heaven whenever she dies. This woman's name is Alana, and considering the manner in which she treats people and situations her name ought to be Satan. Anyways, when I first came across this woman I truly thought her to be an  individual of great faith and spiritual endurance. I thought she came across as loving, devoted, kind, and very focused in her apparent unselfish motives and actions and efforts. I even told her this several times. I said that even though I am not a particularly religious individual and have some serious problems with religion in general, I was very impressed with the amazingly high level of faith she exhibited. I could not have been more wrong.

This woman is one of the most manipulative, cruel, mentally abusive, untrustworthy, backstabbing, selfish individuals I have ever met. She has zero qualms when it comes to condemning people who do not believe or live or behave as she does. If you exhibit resistance in any form as she tries to control you she turns into a terrible person. Let me give you some examples.

Okay, so this woman Alana's  daughter lives with her as does the daughter's boy-friend. Alana treats the daughter's boy-friend with extreme disrespect, disregard, and loathing. Whenever the boy-friend's children are around she is often rude to them, in some cases even going so far to say that they do not matter and are not her grandchildren and mean absolutely nothing. There is a little boy who is six years old who has often turned away in tears because of the stupid and thoughtless and hurtful shit this woman has said to him or within hearing distance of him.

Alana seemingly takes great joy and solace in planting as many barbs and burrs as possible between her daughter and the boy-friend, often causing huge arguments that are entirely based on partial or even completely untrue information. Of course the boy-friend wants nothing to do with the stupid bitch and will not allow himself to be controlled by Alana.

A while back Alana supposedly had ten thousand dollars stolen from a safe in her room. Knowing the things that I know about the situation I think Alana is full of shit and did not have crap stolen from her. Being as though she hates her daughter's boy-friend she even went so far as to try to convince a friend of her daughter and the boy-friend that he, the boy-friend, stole the money. The basis for her accusation was that he had purchased a really nice ring for her daughter the same week the money supposedly vanished. Never mind that the boy-friend does work very hard and makes great money and takes great care of those he loves. Never mind that the boy-friend was no where near the house when the theft supposedly occurred. Never mind that Alana is not the only person in the world with money.

Alana also apparently believes that her daughter's boy-friend is going to hell and has even told him as much, adding that a friend of his who is lesbian will be joining him. Everywhere this woman goes she brings with her this heavy cloud of negativity that reaches out, twists its horrible tendrils around everything within shouting distance, and then chokes the life and the love and the joy right out.

If Alana cannot find something she will accuse someone (namely the lesbian friend of the boy-friend) of taking whatever it is she cannot find, to include dishes. Isn't that a gas? When she had trouble with her Internet access and account she accused individuals living in her home of hacking into her account. When she put the electricity bill fully in her name and then received a whopper of a bill she accused everybody in the house of being irresponsible and wasteful with their energy uses. Never mind that the stupid bitch runs a gym business out of her garage and regularly uses treadmills and fans and other electricity consuming appliances. Never mind that she has one of those notoriously inefficient mini refrigerators in her bedroom. When the same thing happened with the water bill she pulled the same shit and started accusing people of being wasteful. Never mind that she sometimes does load after load after load after load of laundry.

 When the lesbian friend of Alana's daughter's boy-friend tried to confront Alana when Alana cracked off a couple of lies...well, what do you think happened? Did Alana take responsibility and admit what she had done? Nope. She literally took off.

This woman Alana is full of hatred and dislike for anyone who she cannot control, who believes differently, who does not stand for her manipulating shit, or who will confront her on the idiocy of her claims and behavior. Once I realized this I clearly saw that she was not a person of faith. She was merely a mean person who hid behind the curtain of religion. It never matters what she says or does because Jesus and God forgive her. It doesn't matter how she treats people because she is going to heaven. The only thing that matters to this woman is whatever it is that she wants.

Now, dear deluded brother of mine, you don't really think that Alana exhibits the love that God is supposed to be, do you? Is this how believers are supposed to behave? Is this an example of how the 'power of the Christian God' works? There are loads of supposedly God-fearing people who behave just like this woman Alana.

You tell me how the supposed all-powerful cannot maintain a better track record with the effect he has on people who believe in him. And don't give me any of that, "Well, humans mess up," bullshit. If Christianity and religion are so full of truth and divine power and strength why don't those who believe behave better and exhibit more of the love of God? Why is there a pervasive attitude of "I am better than you" within the ranks of believers? How can a God who is supposed to be so great get such crappy results?
