"Poof....Now upon eight decades plus, I have arrived in a world of wireless digital communication.
And in a short time with this 'wireless thing' I have discovered a social media society malady.
-Social media maladies are conditions affecting productivity of the human network, (core value morality) It is often construed to be a social condition associated with specific symptoms and signs.

Social media maladies are conditions affecting productivity of the human network. It is often construed to be a social condition associated with specific symptoms and signs.
It may be caused by external factors, such as influence of technology or simply using technology in the wrong way and for the wrong
purposes. It may also be caused by the influence of media. Causes include a lack of knowledge or wisdom by individuals or groups,
sometimes both. The lack of knowledge and/or wisdom in use of this thing everyone calls “social media” has become a social media
malady.

Social media maladies cause pain, dysfunction, distress, social problems, and lost productivity to the person(s) afflicted, or similar
problems for those in contact with the person or organization. In this broader sense, it sometimes includes injuries, disabilities, disorders, syndromes and mental infections. Social media malady can also be classified as communicable and non-communicable “social disease” of the mind. Got it yet? You really don’t want to get it.

An Epidemic of Social Proportions

Everywhere we turn in every form of media we are surrounded with this thing called social media. Facebook dominates magazine covers, stories, broadcast and our mobile devices “tweet” with content from” twits”. The human network is more consumed with reading and watching “the latest and greatest” than they are about their own safety on the road or that of others. Technology is influencing our belief systems to believe the “popular and influential” vs. the “meaningful and significant” things that define life, if we can remember what the definition of life is.

Life is the condition that distinguishes organisms from inorganic objects and dead organisms, being manifested by growth through
metabolism, reproduction, and the power of adaptation to environment through changes originating internally. Living things are systems that tend to respond to changes in their environment, and inside themselves, in such a way as to promote their own continuation. A social media malady promotes the continuation of meaningless and insignificant things that do not promote progressive continuation of the human network.

The epidemic at hand is production and consumption of meaningless and insignificant things that do not enhance continuation of the human network. The continuation of the human network is fueled by knowledge and wisdom. Social media maladies are spread by not knowing or not using knowledge wisely. Said maladies include:

(Part #2)
Believing that life is shaped and fueled by marketing messages
Believing that results are best achieved by manipulating those who lack knowledge or wisdom
Believing that “popular and influential” means “knowledgeable and wise”
Believing every tweet, status update, email or text is worthy of immediate attention
Believing “friends” are more important that your “meaningful and significant relationships”
The commercial world knows that the human network suffers these common maladies and more. We are fed media that sustains our maladies existence, and all “social media” are doing is creating an epidemic of social proportions.


'The only cure for social media maladies is knowledge followed by wisdom. You are not likely to get cured by popular and influential Social Media Therapists because the reality is they are the ones spreading the epidemic with self-centered promotional media disguised as knowledge and wisdom. Real knowledge and wisdom come from the soul of the human network. If you put your head in the sand, you won’t find it because you can’t see it!'

" Today, (Here in the Now) ...(#IAMHere) ... (I Came to share) ... ('Bingo') {Social media outlets I Am active in} Now of a decade through the maze of wireless communication mayhem of a host of media outlets. There are no sufficient words to describe this wireless phenomenal digital language. Being 'Old school'...Poof, I have arrived in the 'Twilight Zone'. :unsure:

'Society has embarked on a precarious 'Spiritual Malady'. The characteristics of the spiritual and physical world are very far apart. Persons live their lives based on physical world, negative characteristics, and not the positive spiritual world characteristics.

'Essentially this 'Malady' may adequately refer to as a stark void in people's lives, thus constantly attempting to be filled with outside things with everything imaginable to alleviate the sadness and despair that go hand in hand with this void, and this list would be endless. Essentially hoping to feel better and experiencing an emptiness on such a deep level of sadness and despair, that too often physical and emotional health are at great risk. Depression and anxiety are predominately the disturbing results!

'And these results being witnessed in some form on a daily basis through News Media Outlets, a panoramic view of Morality as a whole being replaced with an abomination of desolation behavior...unfit/uninhabitable for a person's wellbeing, as a whole... this being families and communities as a whole to know of peace joy and happiness. Our greatest resource being Love...God's love upon a person's actions and behavior with one another, starting in the family atmosphere.

And in the quest to fill this void of 'emptiness', it appears to be completely dismissed that in reality, the only thing that potentially has the power to fulfill a person's overall wellbeing, and that being a Spiritual Connectedness to something greater than us...God, with the gift of the Holy Spirit, alive and activated within SELF. And here being with the ability to share from the heart as a witness of surrender and willingness to change accordingly, that others may 'hear' the 'good news'.... No more...No less."

" Know this and know it well...it is not wise to knowingly Grieve the Holy Spirit"
(Let the 'scholars' fully understand, precisely the depth of a subtle warning put forth!)


'Bingo'...Believe I need God, Ok
'Thank you, Lord,'...I AM You...You Are I
'I'M Alive...I'M Alive...I'M Alive'

"Make no mistake...the essential necessity to focus on Divine words of 'Warnings' being of utmost importance
to be better prepared to hopefully gain an inner insight into the spiritual ability and necessity for a meaningful
relationship and communication with and for working with God as a messenger to put forth more meaning and purpose
of all Divine inspiration.


'And the predominant causes of ignoring the necessity to focus on Bible 'Warnings' hinge on ego stubbornness and
selfish self-centeredness. And when these hindering disturbances are prevalent, it appears greatly obvious, many are
experiencing a serious delusional outpour, presenting a worldly intellectual malady, thus MANY being devoured by 'ruler of the power
of the air'. And this alone being a sinister 'Warning'.


'And being undisputable, events being witnessed and promoted through news media have taken on a persona
that of likely being consistent with an 'abomination of desolation'.... simply that of being unfit, pertaining to morality
and love from heart of the man mind.


'And the return of Christ, I conclude to be a metaphor. The Spirit of Christ our Lord God is, has and will remain God
in our midst, here in the now, gift of the Holy Spirit. I have learned I had to surrender to win a victory and I had to

die of my old life...now renewed spiritually alive to live a new life of eternity with God...here and beyond in His spiritual realm.
No more...No less. God is...I Am that I Am.
"Praise God"

"Now more than ever I am aware of the wireless digital communication evolving into some sinister
and disturbing revelations. Active on other social media outlets I am witnessing behavior that is not

compatible in maintaining or hoping for morality to be reinstated or even considered a possibility.
Radicalism has replaced love and common sense and demoralized the very core foundation of family unity.

'The wireless 'addiction' has invaded the family structure with vengeance. And the most vulnerable,
being children and the new millennium society as a whole.


'This profound truth being revealed by chance over two decades ago from a 'friend' of a 'friend'... (R.I.P.) and
holds precisely no change: (*There are no political, military or 'religious' solution to what is primarily a spiritual problem
in the world today.) No More...No less!

'And self-proclaimed 'Christians' obviously have rendered themselves in touch only as precisely what may be their
own personal agenda as they want it to be, most often by insertion of 'worldly intellectual egotism' for their
own self-acclaim of hopefully gaining audience attention. Sadly, and disturbingly bringing cause of division, separation, confusion
and augmented dialog, of little value in lost souls finding spiritual wisdom in any meaningful relationship with God.


'Profound words not to be taken lightly...believe it!
'The
bible warns against grieving the Holy Spirit and details what can happen as a result. "Grieving the Holy Spirit

is not a sin that can be forgiven, but it is an unforgivable sin. When you grieve the Holy Spirit, you are rejecting
God’s work in your life and turning away from His guidance!"

"Praise God"

"Hearts of stone most likely harbor resentment, jealousy, selfishness and self-centered ego
and none are compatible with any likely hope of maintaining a sound family foundation.

'And to continue to act out with these behaviors, may often present an inward unmanageability,
and eventually the mind becomes immune, and foolishness being exposed for all to witness.
And to enter upon a dark path of a 'spiritual malady'...loss of morality most often bears troublesome consequences.

Self-justification shall be foolishness of hearts of stone."

"The things that count cease being those that can be held in the hand and become only
what can be held in the heart. Peace, joy and happiness being compatible with our greatest
resource and that being love. And when love is unattended to, so be spiritual discipline...unattended."

*'A moral dilemma is also called an ethical dilemma and refers to a situation where an individual needs to make a choice but faces a conflicting situation between one or more alternatives. Ideally, the choice they make presents a dilemma because every available option may be wrong or incorrect. This creates a situation where there is a conflict of morals or ethics. Moral dilemmas are important as they help individuals interrogate their moral standing and who they are in terms of the choices they make when presented with conflicting options or situations.' (* 'Intended solely as informative and subjects of 'Reflections of Life'...'This side of the glass')

"It being indisputable the wireless digital communication 'addiction' has fragmented the very core of the family structure,
and society collectively as a whole. Every aspect of life has been inflicted with endless mood variables, and brought cause of

great family division and separation and escalating with profound disturbances never before witnessed."


(A profound look at a perpetuating reality put forth from another time, and entails the 'here in the now' prognosis)
The Prince of the Power of the Air
(Anonymous)
Ephesians 2:2
Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air…

The connection of the "world" with the Evil One as its "prince" is not uncommon in Holy Scripture (see John 12:31; John 14:30; John 16:11); and the power of this passage is exactly that which Satan claims as "committed" to him in Luke 4:32. But the phrase "the power of the air" is unique and difficult. We note (1) that this phrase signifies not "a power over the air," but "a power dwelling in the region of the air." Now, the word "power," both in the singular and the plural, is used in this Epistle, almost technically, of superhuman power.

Here, therefore, the Evil One is described as "the prince," or ruler, of such superhuman power — considered here collectively as a single power, prevailing over the world, and working in the children of disobedience — in the same sense in which he is called the "prince of the devils," the individual spirits of wickedness (Matthew 9:34; Matthew 12:24). Next (2), Why is this spoken of as ruling "in the air"?

There may possibly be allusion (as has been supposed) to the speculation of Jewish or Gentile philosophy; but it seems far more probable that the "air" is here meant simply to describe a sphere, and therefore a power, below the heaven and yet above the earth. The "air" is always opposed to the bright "ether," or to the spiritual "heaven"; the word and its derivatives carry with them the ideas of cloudiness, mist, and even
darkness.
Hence it is naturally used to suggest the conception of the evil power, as allowed invisibly to encompass and move about this world, yet overruled by the power of the true heaven, which it vainly strives to overcloud and hide from earth. In Ephesians 6:12 the powers of evil are described with less precision of imagery, as dwelling "in heavenly places," the opposition being there only between what is human and superhuman; yet even there the
"darkness" of this world is referred to, corresponding to the conception of cloudiness and dimness always attaching to "the air."

(1.) SELFISHNESS IS THE ROOT OF SIN. Selfishness is living in and for self. It manifests itself in various aspects.)

1. In thought. Self becomes the largest figure in a man's conception of the universe. The shadow of self lies across everything else. The merits of self are magnified in pride. Vanity craves the admiration of others for oneself. Self-worship makes a man prejudiced in holding to his own opinions and bigoted in rejecting those of other men.

2. In feeling. Self-love fills a selfish man's heart. He has no grief at another's trouble and no pleasure in another's joy. Instead of feeling as a member of a great body moved by the common pulse of a common life, he is like a solitary cell detached and self-concentrated.

3. In action. Self-will becomes the predominating energy and self-seeking the prevailing motive. In its extreme development this becomes positive cruelty - a pursuit of one's own pleasure through the pain of others. Now, all this is sinful in the sight of God and man, and frightfully injurious to society. War, crime, intemperance, etc., all spring from some form of selfishness.

(II.) CHRISTIANITY REQUIRES THE ERADICATION OF SELFISHNESS, so long as a man thinks only of himself, he has not learned what the gospel means. He may be seeking what he calls his spiritual welfare - escape from hell, a happy future, or peace here. But all this is selfish. Selfishness in every respect must be uprooted in order that the true Christian life may be established.

1. In thought. This is essential to repentance. Humility and confession of sin are necessary before we can even enter the kingdom of heaven.

2. In feeling. Love to Christ, not the saving of our own souls, is the great motive that should inspire us. Love to our fellowmen, not personal comfort, is the spirit that should pervade our lives. We are only Christian in so far as we follow Christ. And Christ denied himself and "went about doing good." All pretensions of saintly devotion count just for nothing, or for worse than nothing, for hypocrisy, so long as the self sits enthroned in our hearts.

3. In action. Faith pre-supposes self-abnegation; it is the surrender of ourselves to another. It takes two forms -

(1) submission of our souls to the will of God in reliance upon his grace in Christ as our Savior; and

(2) obedience of our lives to the will of God in loyal service to Christ as our Master. -

And Jesus Christ embodied what he taught.

"And it is with hope that perhaps those searching for a reprieve from troublesome life disturbances may come to learn
a
self-inventory often being a good place to start, and HONESTY BEING ESSENTIAL. And without shall be a result of rebellious contempt
of truth.".......'No more...no less'.

~Spiritually Inspired~

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

5 They are of the world: therefore, speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

"The 'What If' thing.
Years now gone by, I have been part of and in part of homelessness. I assure you this experience has to be lived
to even begin to have a vague notion of lives living on the 'edge'. Hopelessness brings cause of real tears and this too

I have shared in my real-life journey, and it is not to be taken lightly of with an arrogant attitude...it is and does exist.

'And it is firmly believed the purpose being for a reason later to come to know and understand mysteries of God are
just that and not to question. And after my life became more orderly and manageable, I visited homeless 'camps' in Az.
and shared tears with a couple that were struggling. I brought them home and allowed them to clean up, wash some cloths,
and shared food and love with them. An experience to behold, believe it. Thank God this spiritual awareness being of great value!
A love to behold and share with those in need of more than the world has to offer.'


'Life happening events are unpredictable and great lessons may be learned when seemingly insignificant things later become
profoundly relevant and significant pertaining to one's own life of conduct with people, places and things that may arise.
And a man that sheds no tears with the downtrodden, being one without a soul of any spiritual worth.'


'Praise God'...'I once was lost, now I am found!

beforehand, many of our difficulties would never have arisen."

of breaking apart and often leaving a scar of bitterness and emotional upheaval, often with far reaching consequences."

"And personally, I can only conclude my problem and society as a whole...WORLDLY DISTRACTIONS! And with this all
things of all things being a sound conclusive absolute realism, past, present and beyond. And this truth having been
put forth throughout the most publicized Book of wisdom on earth...the Bible. And the ignored warnings being a primary
cause of the turbulent disturbances wrecking the very core values of the basic family structure, bringing perpetual
havoc
of 'abomination of desolation'...basically a place unfit for love to survive."
(And here Bible 'scholars' retaliate with 'delusional worldly opinions and speculative foolishness' and this also pertains
to warnings put forth. And any 'scripture' here being not necessary as 'readers' conjure up what the 'self-centered' behavior
projects how and what they want the words to be meant. Spiritual discernment appears to agitate hearts of stone.


(Root of “discernment” means to “separate” or “set apart.” In Christian life, it is the ability to separate good from evil, truth from falsehood, wisdom from foolishness.
'Discernment is a useful gift in various situations in our lives. It’s the ability to evaluate situations and choose courses of action while staying aware of the moral implication of all options.')

"And my spiritual journey being mine and mine alone, thank God. And as a 'vision' of a time before, my commitment was
to go forward with love and to share my
gratitude and love of God's love, and with hope of lost souls to know of Christ
our Lord God with such an intimacy that lives may come to learn of peace, joy and happiness...Here in the Now."


"Thank God...I once was lost, now I am found."
