Ideology: Waging War on Personal Prerogative

IDEOLOGY: WAGING WAR ON PERSONAL PREROGATIVE

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress…

Out of the Heart, the Mouth speaks…

Ideology Abhors Belief Systems

As stated in a previous blog, “contrary to contemporary folklore, many New World settlers were more inspired by potential economic gain than religious conviction”. However, the decision of those seeking religious relief, stemmed from the confiscation of an interdependent (monarch-politicians-clergy) process by Ideological forces.

Their concerns were codified when Queen Elizabeth I sanctioned the 1559 Act of Uniformity that imposed the Book of Commons on all belief systems. It passed through the House of Lords by only three votes, and all the clergy except those imprisoned by the Queen, voted against it. Many Pilgrims and Puritans, Protestants to a differing degree, headed for the New World along with those seeking fame and fortune – and the embarrassingly poor who were forcibly evicted from the streets of London.

In 2018 there still remains but a remnant of difference between freely adhering to ones chosen moral convictions – and the legislative imposition of moral uniformity. Recently the voters of both the City and County of Los Angeles passed legislation directing billions of dollars to mitigate regional homelessness, now at epic proportions. The humanity and heartfelt empathy of the regions voters cannot be debated. While these propositions were gracious and generous, would the standards embraced by the regions elected representatives be any less ideological than was the 1559 Act of Uniformity?

In 2017 one of the largest and most comprehensive emergency services providers in the US served over one million meals and provided a half million shelter nights – and did not turn away a single woman or child, no matter the stress on staff and resources. While this provider has maintained a religious affiliation for the past one hundred and twenty-five years, it has never once differentiated in the level of services or resources provided to those in need – nor does it require guests to embrace or acknowledgment its beliefs.

The organization’s laudable performance is well established and its exemplary financial management well documented, e.g. it posts its audited financial statement for public review. Nevertheless, this organization was advised by regional government counsel, that unless it provided written repudiation of its religious affiliation – as are others – it would not be awarded any of the new funding. With no New World which to banish the homeless or those in need of emergency services, the City and County of Los Angeles have nevertheless imposed their own ideology inspired 2018 Act of Uniformity.

Ideology provides cover for the Tyrannical assault on the Belief Systems of Others

Ideology Abhors Self Expression

Thoughts have the potential to defy convention, challenge expectations, repudiate traditional beliefs – to encourage and to dissuade, to affirm and forbid, and to support and suppress. Thoughts cannot be mediated by referendum or confined by the strictures of science. Thoughts may enjoy long and short-term tenure. Thoughts may inspire comfort or disquiet conflicted by current reality. Thoughts are the personal jurisdiction where ethical, relational, civil, and social comportment gestate. Thoughts and speech are intractably entangled – the former revealed by the later. Because out of the heart the mouth speaks – to know others requires a willingness to hear others.

Words released from the confines of thought have their own capacity for engagement. Some words can be countermanded by other words, but not all words can be annulled. Leaders, parents, colleagues, and friends, have on occasion released irretrievably harmful words. However, it is the genesis of the thoughts behind the words that warrant examination to discern the presence of deception and aberrant intent.

No act more effectively empowers deception than silencing the thoughts of those with whom we might not agree – just as no act more effectively plunders deception than exposing it to virtue and truth. Such authenticity is more accessible than most realize, however, ideology is a narcotic that subverts appetites for other than its points of view.

While many nefarious and noble thoughts never rise to the level of engagement, thoughts inhabit words, and words are often a harbinger of incontrovertible actions. Control of actions and outcomes are intractably related to formation and dissemination of words. The United States of America (US) was so dedicated to preserving the rights of citizens to cultivate and express thoughts via words, it made freedom of expression a cardinal tenant of its canon of rights – not subject to government interdiction.

Thoughts in the form of speech undergirded the most powerful of social transformations – e.g. Civil Rights, Voting Rights, Immigration and Education Reform – in the most powerful country in the world. Yet ideology brazenly conscripts those who’ve benefited the most from freedom of expression in its quest to move up the stream-of-personal-consciousness to subvert thought. The title of a recent best-seller about Russia reveals ideology’s vaporous attraction – “Nothing is True but Every Thing is Possible”.

Ideology’s quest to capture the transforming power of words is intended to banish thoughts – not speech – it disapproves of from the public square. Ideology exploits a not so obvious but highly effective strategy; it contends that the battles that matter are economic, racial, and gender based e.g. intersectional – as opposed to those attendant to preservation of thoughts, words, and actions, informed by truth and morality. Deception, the patron saint of Ideology, requires a steady diet of conflict and discord.

Ideology can only foment Deception – whereas – Truth can transform thoughts

Ideology Abhors Cultural Inclination

Culture is both a means of communication and compression. It broadly communicates group perceptions and preferences, and compresses past experiences and decisions into inclinations expressed in the now. Even though it is often referred to in dissected terminology – e.g. me, them, and theyculture is foremost about we.

There is no such oasis as solo-culture; culture exhibits inclinations that reflect the hierarchical and linear integration of nationalism, ethnicity, economics, politics, religion, customs, and passions. American culture derives from a powerful multi-articulated social mechanism, where the who-you-are derives from both transient and static inclinations – the unique you is free to influence many different assemblies.

Besides belief systems, thoughts, and speech – ideology has also planted its flag in the hierarchical and linearly integrated American culture. While its constitutional blueprint suggest America is dynamically and inherently resistant to cultural hegemony, ideology has found a highly receptive and near perfect host for its deceptive and divisive intent. Social elixirs that inspire appetites for ideology over morality and truth have diminished American immunity to cultural subversion. Ideology like cancer relies on its difficulty to be detected, as it subverts healthy potentiality to foment disaster.

How did such a vibrant virtual culture, like that pervasive in America for over two hundred years, lose its vitality? It didn’t. Its vitality was expunged when the voices of truth abandoned their posts. Absent true moral reference, those nominally addicted to ideology maintain a frame of mind that insists, “If I’m dancing with deception, just keep the music playing”. Be aware, Ideology only mixes tacks to its own beat, not yours.

When fully formed, Ideology aggressively resists the Patrons of Truth

Believing ideology possesses authentic and sustainable power – the unsuspecting and addicted hordes surrender their personal prerogative (free will) to its self proclaimed counterfeit authority. Ideology proffers Cadillac promises designed to attract and imprison the human will, and to evade accountability to the truth. Ideology infects party orthodoxy, converting its members into Red and Blue tricks. Many are unaware that the ideology they serve has diabolically different objectives than their orthodoxy espouses.

Truth can never reach an armistice with ideology – as they are the progeny of two wholly different jurisdictions that predestine opposition. Truth transpires from transcendental spiritual agency, whereas ideology is dependent on division, deception and exploitation of cultural agency. Because ideology presumes itself as sovereign, right and wrong, good and evil, and you and me, are subject to its sole adjudication. Ideology does not abide questions or debate – only full and immediate compliance will be tolerated.

Absent the Superior (Truth) Culture will be subsumed by the Inferior (Ideology)

Deception – Division – Disaster

The great counterfeiter adapts deception to every time and culture – Billy Graham

The great counterfeiter’s kryptonite is division through slander – James MacDonald

There’s no disaster that can’t become a blessing or blessing a disaster – J. L. Seagull

Deception has both Origin and Offspring

There exists within the Homo sapiens1 core a prescient connection to purpose – eternally unbounded by time, space, or matter (spirit), and animated interests – that eternally liberates creativity from the internment of reason (soul). The entanglement of spirit and soul inspires engagement by temporal corporeal-synaptic agency (body). Many sense this multidimensional agency; few realize its genesis (origin) resides in the human spirit.

Note1: Sapiens is technically an adjective, but herein denotes both singular and plural forms.

While engagement is the progeny (offspring) of Sapiens intent, the confluence of spirit (morality) and soul (aspiration) is where intent gestates. Intent can be actualized in kinetic (active) states, e.g. standing and singing, and static (passive) states, e.g. kneeling in silence. Regardless of state, engagement reveals the nature of the spirit – truth or deception – that the soul sanctions, and it alone rewards with corporeal-synaptic agency.

Deception inspired spiritual agency (strategic deceit) has powerful capacity to influence the human soul. However, truth-inspired spiritual agency (divine purpose) also abides; it grants both the power to discern deception and to obtain revelation to the human soul. Yet, a soul that affirms deceit opens a portal by which deception begets fraudulent engagement, which engagement begets division, where after division begets disaster.

Deception purports a unifying Genesis but claims plausible denial of its divisive Progeny

Deception disavows Details and Facts – by any Words Necessary

A broadly disseminated narrative contends that police have disproportionate violent encounters with young African American men. This point was defended on a recent National Broadcast News Program by an African America trial lawyer who: used word symbols and slogans, but just one fact and no details to provide context to the narrative.

The following evening, the same News Program afforded an African American lawyer from the US Commission on Civil Rights the opportunity to respond to the trial lawyers assertions. The Commissioner used Department of Justice data and copious Commission studies to prove that the assertions pivoted on a word – disproportionate – not facts.

Deception religiously defuses Details and Facts with Symbols and Slogans

Deception seeks to sire Division – by any Means Necessary

The Commissioner also reported that the data confirms police kill black men (6 percent of the population) 2.5 times more frequently than whites (31 percent of the population), or disproportionately. However, computing the ratio of police killings by dividing group killings by the total male populations of that group is intellectually dishonest and yields a patiently deceptive outcome. A cogent examination of the data by universally vetted mathematical processes is revealing, compelling, and alarming:

In New York, young black men commit 35 times more robberies, 38 times more murders, and 51 times more firearm-related crimes – than do whites.

In 2015 police killed 36 unarmed black men, while other black men (mostly young) murdered nearly 6,000 other black Americans.

Young black males make up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade.

Perhaps the most sobering revelation is that of the 7,881 African Americans murdered in 2016 – the overwhelming majority were murdered by young African American males between the ages of 17 and 34, less than 1.5 percent of the total population.

Deception highjacks the power of language to deprive many of “an ear to see”

Division masterfully disorients Good Intentions

Many African American professional athletes – and others – are exercising their First Amendment right to protest what they see as disproportionate treatment of young black men by police. Not surprisingly, the young men on whom the protests focus fall within the same age range (25.5) as the protesters (NBA: 26.5 and NFL: 25.6); many hail from the same archetype communities. Undoubtedly many of these athletes, no matter their salaries, have unique insights regarding the plight and experiences of this group – and processes by which they can overcome their difficult and self-destructive challenges.

Who is better positioned and accomplished – to mentor this group – than these athletes?

Division is Organic and Infectious

The protesters infrequent articulation of details and facts that reveal the marrow of their cause – beyond talking points and slogans – organically accelerates division. It has led many to conclude that these athletes are unaware of the well-established data and facts that impair the potency and piety of their protests. The infectious kumbaya (feelings) between players and owners does not reflect a perfect union, given fierce fan base opposition (reality). Division always seeks to substitute feelings in place of reality.

Discounting POTUS Flag bluster is one thing – but Flags thrown by fans quite another

Division inspires Schism as a prelude to Disaster

First and foremost the Flag is not a symbol of a perfect union but of the sacrifice of life and limb by all members of the National Community to include African Americans (54th Mass. Infantry, Abolitionist, Tuskegee Airmen, and many Medal of Honor recipients). Various protesters seem unaware or unconcerned that casting the Flag in the shadow of wanton murder of private citizens by private citizens (a symbol pivot) is hugely divisive.

Division is an Accelerant – that unfurls Disastrous uncontainable Social Infernos

Disaster is the Love Child of Division

Contrary to popular convention, division is counter-intuitive to both those harboring noble and nefarious intent. Some choose: to destroy and disparage, oppose and oppress, disrupt and dispose, challenge and co-opt – yet others choose to collaborate and coordinate, plan and produce, share and sacrifice, encourage and enable. No analytics provide plausible incentive to embrace division over allied engagement. Both divisive and allied engagements are the progeny (offspring) of radically different geneses, which reveal which spirit – truth or deception – the soul has elected to sanction.

It’s no coincidence that the terms used to describe divisive engagement are the same as those impartial scribes use to critique military conquest, political retribution, economic calamity, and acts of terrorism; division – the progeny of deception – foments disaster. The terms used to describe allied engagement are often the same as those impartial scribes use to critique military forbearance, political discourse, economic propriety, and acts of selfless generosity; allegiance – the progeny of truth – empowers relationship.

Infused by Deception infected Division – the Internet supercharges virtual Disaster

Truth has its own Power and Authority

Once the human soul has elected to collaborate with the spirit of deception, the corporeal-synaptic-self engages as an enraged opponent of truth. An effective strategy for controverting truth is to supplant free speech and access (First Amendment Rights) by force and disparagement. Sources that expose deception are often attacked, and credible facts are bleached to oblivion by fake news and rebukes from celebrity scions.

Truth is eternal: it does not originate in the temporal corporeal-synaptic realm. Eternal truth is not reasoned conclusions fashioned from data, facts, circumstances, or season. Eternal truth cannot arise from nor survive on the basis of religious, cultural, or political ideologies. Ideologies are nevertheless the perfect companions to deception, cloaking deception in an opaque sea of familiarity. No matter the vigorous applause of agreeable constituencies, deception cannot survive the discerning and revelatory power of truth.

Truth is both an Eternal Quality and a Source of Eternal Power – only when it is shared!

Ahab Begot Jezebel : Highly Contagious and Deadly – Part 4 of 4

AHAB BEGOT JEZEBEL : HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS AND DEADLY – Part 4 of 4

…I will avenge the blood of my servants the prophets and the blood of all the Lord’s servants shed by Jezebel. The whole house of Ahab will perish…2 Kings 9: 7-8

Ahabs may arrive from nowhere, but seldom without a plan to get somewhere. Jezebels may have personal potential limited vision, but are adept at leveraging the potential of others. While their sticky potential in the natural is obvious, Ahab and Jezebel are bonded by a dark spiritual agency, mutual immorality and loyalty to deception.

After sufficient exposure, deception yields the highly contagious and deadly spiritual virus of delusion. The strength of the virus increases exponentially so long as delusion resides. Infected by delusion, Ahabs beget many more Ahabs, and Jezebels beget many more Jezebels. Only personal reconciliation with biblical truth can arrest this deadly spiritual virus. Delusion, having anesthetized the spiritual senses, makes discerning deception difficult. Delusion embraces emoting as confirmation of true worship.

Structure has brought membership growth, but not liberty to the human spirit. Within organizations acutely infected by the virus of delusion, few lead their lives, households, or relationships in agreement with the spirit of truth. While members may have been infected by Ahab and Jezebel inspired viral delusion, this spiritual infection can’t be eradicated by attacking its communicable agents.

The actual battle for release and relief from debilitating spiritual diminishment is between the spirit of truth and the spirit of deception. Ahab and Jezebel have two abiding connections with deception; it is the progeny of their personal immorality. Should this progeny come under assault by the truth, they will resist dissemination of the truth by attacking the source of revelation or obfuscating the truth itself. They will also enlist the support of the many Ahabs and Jezebels, their viral delusion has birthed.

Truth has its own spiritual authority and power of revelation. Truth is impenetrable and unimpeachable, undaunted yet accessible, courageous and survivable, peerless yet reviewable. Truth needs no gift-wrapping nor ruggedized containment. Truth excavates and evacuates, while seeding and liberating. Truth sets those arrested by deception free, while causing patrons of deceptions to flee. Truth causes dark spirits to cower, while the spirit of life towers. Only the same truth that empowers the Angel Armies can overcome deception. Truth disrobes Ahabs and exposes Jezebels. Truth sets the captives free.

The end of Ahabs who are malfeasant with the authority entrusted to them by God, and the Jezebels who usurp and fraudulently exercise it, is well understood. The end for those who join this sinful mob, choosing the spirit of deception over the spirit of truth is no different, never mind having been infected by those they trusted.

Ahab Begot Jezebel : Defeating Deception and Delusion – Part 3 of 4

AHAB BEGOT JEZEBEL : DEFEATING DECEPTION AND DELUSION – Part 3 of 4

“Is there no longer a prophet of the Lord here whom we can inquire of?” “There is still one prophet… but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me…1 Kings 22: 8-9

Immorality begot deception, which begot delusion, and delusion always begets destruction. The delusion that controls Ahab and Jezebel is the same that developed in Satan, leading him to attack God’s sovereign rule in heaven. Ahab and Jezebel are but clandestine agents pursuing this same initiative. Ahab’s and Jezebel’s mission is to take authority over and disrupt the mission of God in the earth realm. Satan must resort to deception to obfuscate the truth regarding his defeat at the hands of Christ Jesus, and God’s magnanimous plan for His creation in eternity. He has no other weapon or choice.

To allow delusion to operate unchallenged is to invite both spiritual and natural calamity. Those who embrace the author of truth and life must realize that the spirit that indwells them has both exposed the deadly intent of delusion, and tread upon the pernicious spirit of deception. Discernment and embrace of truth are sufficient for victory. While truth and transparency have their own power and have already overcome the world – how are Ahab and Jezebel able to conquer so much territory and take so many captive?

The strategy employed by Ahab and Jezebel is no different than that seen in Heaven and Eden. A choice for truth ushers in the assurance of deliverance and eternal relational access to a holy God. Deception is the only arrow in the enemies quiver with any potential to carry out an attack on the truth. However, a sound understanding of this diabolical strategy is second in importance only to the revelation of truth itself. The arrows of deception can only find their marks when by free election one disengages their loyalty from truth. Such disengagement is often induced by human alliances and wanting-what-we-want, which pushes away the giver.

Does God sit ideally by while Ahab and Jezebel covertly and clandestinely reap havoc on the truth? No. God has already defeated the author of deception and provided His own with potent resources for exposing it. Nevertheless, the people of God must both chose truth and remain loyal to truth. The purveyor of deception is fully aware of his defeat, yet he remains committed to discrediting the truth, his objective being to destroy God’s elect. Only through those who yield their loyalty, does deception achieve new facility by which to operate.

Fully aware of his eternally defeated status, God’s enemy has not retreated. Ahab and Jezebel embrace their undeclared mission similarly. Only by embrace of the same power of truth and life that brought about the defeat of darkness at Calvary, can Ahab and Jezebel be delivered.

Affirmation

Affirmation

Timeless and Stateless Power to Invigorate Truth and Deception

Woman was last on a short list of that affirmed as perfect: perfect heavens, perfect earth, perfect man and woman; it would be necessary to expand the list by at least one.

With scant dissent, the global community of physicists and cosmologists agree that the random advent of the heavens and earth has a likeliness of 1 chance in 10, raised to the 10th power, then raised to the 123rd power, e.g. impossible; these specific conditions are essential to sustains life. Frustrated by intractable impossibility, some biologists (short on science) and psychologists (long on induction) now argue that the heavens and earth, like their position regarding the advent of life, are also the products of natural selection.

The former group describes spirituality as a necessary dimension, without concluding inter-dimensionality (confluence of spiritual and natural realms) infers anthropological relationship. The latter group describes spirituality as a contradiction of reason. Advances in quantum science continue to narrow the inter-dimensionality divide, calling into question which group’s claims are more scientific and which are more philosophical. Many openly affirm the relationship between the heavens, earth, and life; they also affirm the obvious discontinuity of their origins. Science can never repudiate truth.

No matter the philosophical defamation of the author of the heavens, earth, and sentient life, the quantum (timeless and stateless) power of affirmation evidences intelligent intent. Affirmation powerfully and uniquely invigorates the mutuality of relationship and companionship. Roused from twilight sleep, man was indelibly imprinted by the comprehensive perfection of his new companion; there was no need to Google her Myers-Briggs type, peruse her Facebook friends, or review her Instagram Red Carpet photos. What some credit to chemistry, others credit to inter-dimensional affirmation.

Man, the corporeal-synaptic enabled guardian of quantum powered affirmation declared, “you are my sentient simpatico, and your curves set all my desires on fire”. The man’s inelegant but affirming words indelibly imprinted the woman. Whether the most gifted or least talented, it remains imperative that a woman adores the her that is her true self. Whether the most powerful or least influential, it remains imperative that a man consider the impact of his words on the abiding love of a woman, and the self-confidence and emotional stability of his offspring. Affirmation indelibly imprints.

The quantum power of affirmation is unambiguous, never straddling the fence; its purview is immutably androgynous, going both ways. Affirmation is as incontrovertible as is its purpose to powerfully invigorate truth. However, the power of affirmation to invigorate deception is incontrovertible and lethal. Affirmation permeates: prohibition and liberty, vision and discouragement, the credible and dubious. Affirmation infuses life-preserving initiative and life-extinguishing disillusion. Absent discernment, aberrant affirmation inspires greed, intransigence and self-righteous conflict.

The slide from perfection began when deception, having its own diabolical source of spiritual inspiration, affirmed fear, jealousy, and ultimately death. Few today recognize the calamitous potential of aberrant affirmation. After each calamity experts routinely determine the callous misadventure to have been circumstantially or environmentally induced. To acknowledge the underlying cause as aberrant affirmation (diabolically inspired words lorded over cultural, political, religious, and economic dependents) infers inter-dimensionality. Any such inference calls into question the incoherent discontinuity argument: estrangement of the origin of the heavens and earth, from the origin of life.

Affirming prohibition and liberty matters. People are actually served and nurtured by transcendently affirmed prohibitions, the scope of which are minuscule when compared to the breathe of transcendently affirmed liberty. Affirming vision and preparation matters. True vision exists in a realm that only spiritual agency can illuminate, whereas preparation is the hands-on and intellectually engaged process by which we overcome circumstances and discouragement. Process and illumination bring the who of you into balance with the what inspired by vision. Inter-dimensionality is transcendent and pragmatic; vision conceived in the spirit must ultimately be gestated in the natural.

Discerning what’s being affirmed, truth or deception, matters most. The truth has its own power, derived from the same point of origin as affirmation; the beneficial yield often lasts a lifetime. While campaigning as a devoted champion of truth, deception only affirms malevolent affections and fraudulent authority; its destructive yield often lasts generations. Those who appreciate the quantum power of affirmation must also recognize the abhorrent consequences of surrendering discernment for the camaraderie and convenience of fashionable orthodoxy.

Parents and teachers, who affirm the nascent and sober interests of children, light a fire difficult for circumstances or adversity to extinguish. Parents and teachers, who affirm children’s foibles as harbingers, suffocate their potential and self-confidence long before signal challenges are encountered. Clergy, who yield to the temptation to affirm social, cultural, and personal points of view without vetting their veracity and doctrinal integrity, pose a serious danger to the laity and themselves.

As it was in the beginning – individuals, businesses, institutions and nations, knowingly abuse the power of affirmation for material gain and psychological control. Abusers abound: e.g. spokespersons and salespersons who fraudulently affirm product and service attributes, politicians and activist who affirm positions for expediency, and institutions that affirm information on the basis of the leverage afforded to them. Polling and referendum pose the latest menace, presuming to affirm an opinion as incisiveness and a narrow majority as an urgent mandate.

Cogent inquiry reveals that what appears to be aberrant affirmation addiction is in reality virulent inter-dimensionality resistance.

At the Cross Roads of Light and Darkness

At the Cross Roads of Light and Darkness

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places

While hate and corruption are the progenitors of misunderstanding and exigent circumstances, here cause and effect have their genesis in different realms. Though composed as misunderstanding and exigent circumstances in the natural realm, hate and corruption are nevertheless the offspring of evil, which has its genesis in the spirit realm. No matter the realm of origin, metamorphous from like inspiration to like expression is immutable.

The spirit realm is comprised of multiple imperishable dimensions, operating in parallel with the natural realm. The natural realm is comprised of three specific temporal dimensions providing both visibility and tactility. Confining belief to only what can be seen or held defrauds life of its immeasurably abundant potential. The consequential sense of limitation and unquenchable dissatisfaction, is both un-natural and un-spiritual.

Evil has a spirit realm advocate whose very substance of existence is fear, which can only be resisted in the realm of its genesis. Evil cannot be abated by political, social, economic, psychological, or religious tonics; natural realm intervention is impotent against spiritual agency. The ability of evil inspired in the spirit realm to perpetrate in the natural realm is facilitated by deception. Further, the devastating weapon of deception takes advantage of the most powerful delivery system in the universe, words. By this means, evil attained dominion of the natural realm.

The universal sovereign, whose very substance of existence is love, has already defeated the advocate of evil in the spirit realm, and endowed a new natural realm weapon, truth. Truth has its own formidable power, capable of thwarting both fear and deception. However, truth cannot be discerned or engaged by intellectual, clinical, analytical or heuristic assessment. Inseparable, truth and love culminate in unbounded liberty and abundant life, nourished in spiritual Light. Fear and deception culminate in the illusion of control, ignorance illuminated by spiritual Darkness.

In the natural realm darkness seeks to suborn the conscience of the influential and powerful, and to beguile all into false confidence. The witting and unwitting agents of darkness are actually victims, addicted to deception and disinclined to truth. These victims declare the spirit realm a fantasy province, and evil agency a phantom companion of the gullible. Pronouncements pertaining to spirit realm principles have been declared politically incorrect and even illegal in some jurisdictions; spiritual province and agency may only be embraced privately and silently.

While the inferior Spirit of Darkness invades the mind, the superior Spirit of Light must be welcomed into the heart. This subconscious proximity is exploited by the inferior to impersonate the superior. Affirmations of conflicted aspirations abound; the spiritually inclined often live indistinguishably from the spiritually disinclined. No matter that the superior has bruised the head of the inferior, now under spirit realm house arrest, the merry-go-round of self-providence remains the bon vivant of the natural realm.

Deception and fear provide the primary seismic energy dismembering relationships between nations, cultures, orientations, and individuals, yet attention remains laser focused on hate and corruption, which are but transient aftershocks. Only those freely indwelled by the Spirit of Light can operate in unconditional love and discern truth. They must not and in fact cannot, surrender under the white flag of silence. There will be neither armistice nor détente between the natural realm ambassadors of spirit realm adversaries. The conflict is actually a conquest for dominion and power.

Prompting peace and prosperity by natural realm practices and methods such as intellectual development, journalistic disclosure, economic and social initiatives, military conquest, and philanthropy, has proven futile and disastrously contagious. No corner of humanity has managed to circumvent the signature achievements bequeathed by enlightenment, such as: sectarian conflict, criminal confiscation, nuclear proliferation, kidnapping, rape, mass murder, ethnic cleansing, abortion, and pernicious greed.

The human heart is the fertile abode where the Spirit of Light inculcates truth and gestates discernment. The sages of enlightenment, who consider the mind the seat of wisdom and propitious providence, lambast this position. Nevertheless, just as many consider sitting the new smoking, all had better recognize enlightenment as turbo charged deception, with turbo charged destructive potential.

Over two hundred years ago, her Majesties reluctant subjects chose to resist demands for tribute rationalized by deception. They possessed underwhelming resources and experiences with which to contend against overwhelming technology and organization. These reluctant colonists committed yet another subversive act when they disavowed self-providence to embrace the well familiar refuge of Spiritual Light. The miraculous power of truth was brought to bear in the natural realm against the agency of deception.

Victorious, the infant nation chose to begin its most seminal written expression of national creed with the words, “We hold these truths to be self evident”… The same nation is now challenged to lead a world in turmoil, not by bent of political, financial, or military swagger, but into the same Spiritual Light embraced at and before it’s founding. However, this nation must first resign its own world-class addiction to enlightenment and return to the Light.

In every arena of life and on every occasion, whether personal or private, each of us must determine under which spirit we are operating.
