God/Nature Fights Back





God/Nature Fights Back

All life is interrelated and interdependent.
God/Nature is what we see, hear, touch, smell, and experience in diverse ways.
But still mankind has lots to learn about how nature works.
Mankind attempts to alter the face of nature for its convenience, health, and profit.
But nature has laws by which it functions that can’t be broken without serious consequences.
Entrepreneurs have developed an industrial society, and are pouring tons of carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
For years there have been the uses of spraying on land and by air that have killed pests, an abundance of trees, wildlife, and animals alike.
These poisons have the effect of disrupting the metabolism in humans so many of us are dying from cancer.
Our world is armed with atomic bombs, and the radioactive fallout in some cases has poisoned our water supply.
Yet some leaders persist in making decisions that are harmful to human life.
So God/Nature has always fought back with the death, and deformities of millions and millions of species – animals, reptiles, birds, fishes, trees, and shrubs.
Many living species die immediately from the onslaught of poison, others linger, showing signs of malignancies, and there have even been noticeable effects on the weather.
Humankind is still to learn how to live with God/Nature in acceptable ways because God/Nature always retaliates with doomsday scenarios.
Living well with God/Nature has become an imperative that people can’t afford to ignore.
It’s for our own well-being, safety, health, and doing what’s right for the preservation of future generations.

What is life?



What is life?


Life like God/Nature is infinite.  People are born and they die.  But with this Primal Reality evolution is nothing more than the natural process with all living things.  All entities are constantly being recycled back to the Universe as elements again.  So humans are no different from this God/Nature that has always existed as One Substance with many components that are in constant flux.  Like God/Nature all living things in some way are infinite and Omni-present.

The Holy Spirit




The Holy Spirit

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.  The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
––Rom. 8:5-6

The Holy Spirit is derived from the Hebrew word ru’ach, and the Greek word pneu’ma.  According to the Bible, Spirit has different meanings:

• An Active Nature
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
-Gen. 1:2

• The Breath of Life
The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak ….
–Rev. 13:15

• The Wind - Being Born of the Spirit
“The wind blows wherever it pleases.  You hear its sound but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.  So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
–Jn. 3:8

• An Animating Force
If it were his intention and he withdrew his spirit and breath, all humanity would perish together and mankind would return to the dusk.
–Job 34:14-15

• An Individual's Attitude
But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.
–Num. 14:24

From these insights of the Holy Spirit we could conclude how people prayed was important.  Joyce Meyer (b. 1943), a Christian author said, “Many people feel so pressured by the expectations of others that it causes them to be frustrated, miserable and confused about what they should do.  But there is a way to live a simple, joy-filled, peaceful life, and the key is learning how to be led by the Holy Spirit, not the traditions or expectations of man.”  Meyer’s thoughts were echoed differently by a Trappist monk and priest Thomas Keating (b. 1923), who wrote, “If you accept the belief that baptism incorporates us in the mystical body of Christ, into the divine DNA, then you might say that the Holy Spirit is present in each of us, and thus we have the capacity for the fullness of redemption, of transformation.”

So when praying we should say like Saint Augustine (353–430 AD), a Christian theologian and philosopher: “O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams.”  Let us all be receptive of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
