~Cowboy's Guide to Life~
******** ********* *********
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, it probably ain't.
The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning.
The best sermons are lived, not preached.
It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.
Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.
Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.
You cannot unsay a cruel word.
Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Do the next indicated right thing.
Leave the rest to God.
( Cowboy Wisdom, by 'Windwalker'® )...from a friend to a friend...R.I.P.

'Praise God'

Yes, Praise God!
"We are all ONE."
The true Glory of God in mankind will come when we all realize exactly this!
Every soul joined together by Love. Mankind without divisions. One great spiritual entity. ONE.
Yes, Praise God!

"Many people hear the call of God which comes through His revelation of Himself through two things—the creation and the conscience within us. But only the "few" will respond because they are the ones who are truly hearing. Jesus said many times, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear” The point is that everyone has ears, but only a few are listening and responding. Not everyone who hears the gospel receives it but only the "few" who have ears to hear. The "many" hear, but there is no interest or there is outright antagonism toward God. Many are called or invited into the kingdom, but none are able to come on their own. God must draw the hearts of those who come; otherwise they will not. Has not modern day 'religion' ...'fallen away' from that of which, once was.
Has not deception scattered the 'flock' ........for to follow the lost, you too shall be lost."
'Praise God'

'At the present time, the magnitude or impact of the differences between the physical world and spiritual world is extremely large. We regard them as almost opposite. The physical world is represented by violence, cruelty, greed, frustration, anger, disappointment, destruction, and competition. The spiritual realm is characterized by love, compassion, acceptance, tolerance, humility, growth, and cooperation. We conclude, "They could not be more different."
These are the differences between the two realms. The
immutable characteristics are things we can do nothing about. They have been established in this way to provide the physical world we are experiencing. These differences are opposites; they could not be more different, and we have no control over them.
The other differences are consensus characteristics that result from a consensus of human thoughts, sentiments, and behavior. They are under our control as individuals and as a species.'



THE PHYSICAL REALM THE SPIRITUAL REALM
************************** **************************
Violence Nonviolence
Hate Love
Self-centeredness Other-centeredness
Unhappiness Compassion
Impatience Patience
Harshness Gentleness
Unethical behavior Ethical behavior
Strife, war Peace
Dishonesty Honesty
Deceit Truth
Cruelty Comforting
Manipulation Aid
Arrogance Humility
Evil Goodness
Rejection, separation Acceptance
Intolerance Tolerance


'At the present time, the quantity of the negative characteristic present in the physical world is very large and the quantity of the positive or spiritual characteristic is very small. However, that higher proportion of negative characteristics is a result of choices we are making as a species, not the structure established for the physical realm. We have more of the negative because of a consensus we have about having more of it.'

"EACH INDIVIDUAL IS UNIQUE: the levels of a person’s strengths, weaknesses, resistances, allergic mix and reactions, immunities, emotional balance, will, and other such things and variables or make up differ per individual; just as their spiritual levels differ. Health conditions and medical treatments significant affect all these things and thus affect their neurotransmitters. The Individual must be looked at from a holistic approach. Testing biomarkers, diagnosing illnesses and diseases, looking for psychical and mental normalities and abnormalities, and addressing known and assumed symptoms alone does not encompass a holistic approach. The holistic approach to looking at the sources of influence on an individual or even the total health and make up of an individual requires the understanding and examination of the spiritual. Many physicians, nurses and medical personnel come to understand this to be true."

"The Bible clearly speaks of: God the Son, God the Father, and God the Holy Spirit. But emphasizes that there is only ONE God.
If we were to use math, it would not be, 1+1+1=3. It would be 1x1x1=1. God is a triune God.
Thus the term: "Tri" meaning three, and "Unity" meaning one, Tri+Unity = Trinity. It is a way of acknowledging what the Bible reveals to us about God, that God is yet three "Persons" who have the same essence of deity."

~The Wyoming Rancher~
++++++++++ ++++++++ ++++++++++++++
The rancher went one day to fix a distant fence.
The wind was cold and gusty and the clouds rolled, gray and dense,
As he pounded the last staples in and gathered tools to go,
The temperature had fallen and the snow began to blow.
When he finally reached his pickup, he felt a heavy heart,
From the sound of that ignition, he knew it wouldn't start.
So Jake did what most of us would do, if only we'd been there.
He humbly bowed his balding head and sent aloft a prayer.
As he turned the key for the last time, he softly cursed his luck.
They found him 3 days later, frozen stiff in that old truck.
Now Jake had been around in life, and done his share of roaming.
But when he saw Heaven, he was shocked -- it looked just like Wyoming.
Of all the saints in Heaven, his favorite was St. Peter.
[Now, this line, it ain't needed but it helps with rhyme and meter.]
So they sat and talked a minute or 2, or maybe it was 3,
Nobody was keepin' score -- in Heaven time is free.
"I've always heard," Jake said to Pete, "that God will answer prayer,
But one time I asked for help, and, well He just plain wasn't there.
Does God answer prayers of some, and ignore the prayers of others?
That don't seem exactly square -- I know all men are brothers.
Or does he randomly reply, without good rhyme or reason?
Maybe, it's the time of day, the weather or the season.
Now I just ain't trying to act smart, it's just the way I feel,
And I was wondering', could you tell me -- what the heck's the deal?"
Peter listened very patiently and when Jake was done,
There were smiles of recognition, and he said, "So, you're the one!
That day your truck wouldn't start, and you sent your prayer a flying,
You gave us all a real bad time, with hundreds of us a trying.
A thousand angels rushed to check the status of your file,
But you know, Jake - - - we hadn't heard from you in quite a while.
And though all prayers are answered, and God ain't got no quota,
He didn't recognize your voice, and started a truck in South Dakota."
***So remember to keep in touch.***

"There are two things that we must have if we are going to change our way of life. One is faith, the confidence in things unseen, the fundamental goodness and purpose in the world. The other is obedience: that is, living according to our faith, living each day as we believe that God wants us to live, with gratitude, humility, honesty, purity, unselfishness, and love. Faith and obedience, these two, will give us all the strength we need to overcome sin and temptation and to live a new and more abundant life."

"The 'character' of ones inner self...shall always be on display by attitude and behavior.
And...each shall be responsible and accountable of such. I have learned that to impress
shall never be as rewarding as...the gratitude of God's love, and to share my love of God's
grace...in the hope of inspiring those that are experiencing anguish of life, here in the now.
It is disturbing what is being witnessed...'close by'...do not 'words' alone...often display ones
inner self...'character'. God's love has been replaced by the result of putting ones worldly intellectual
EGO, into action to impress. Has not mankind evolved into a mass of their own rules governing
a way not compatibly with God's 'inspiration' of 'principles' of life to live by...in the now.
Truth is hurtful...we all have FAILED miserably. And...by the grace of God, we have been allowed
the means to be WILLING TO CHANGE...choice of ones own SELF...shall be found within the inner self.
No more...No less."

" GOD has given us a road map to help us find our way on the highways of life. .
is it not wise to know and learn God's 'principles' of living life in the now.
Make no mistake...there are 'signs' that greatly correlate with DOT
road signs...in reference to danger, one way, yield, stop, wrong way. etc. etc.
And...it it not essential to learn to apply the instructions...to pass the test..spiritual awareness."
