The voice of the Living God spoke to a teacher of God many years ago. He was on his knees
praying for his people. He was questioning God on why so many of the people were ill and infirm,
for among his people there was always someone praying for a healing.
The Voice said to him. "Go to the Law."
For the sake of brevity, the problem lay in human nature and how it influenced the human body.
Think of these ten words as ten drugs secreted into our anatomy whenever we activate one of
these human drives. These drives may be said to be for:
1. Preeminence
2. Idolatry
3. Clannishness
4. Activity
5. Rebellion
6. Murder
7. Adultery
8. Stealing
9. Lying
10. Covetousness


These are the factors of the sum total of human activity. Everything that evil (error) can do
can be seen in these words. Every time one of these drives is activated, it causes a different
hormone to be secreted into the bloodstream. After years bearing the bombardment, the body
finally succumbs to permanent disease, then death. Three score and ten, and by strength four
score are allotted.
ONE NATION . . ONE PEOPLE . . UNDER GOD . . THE TRUE WORLD ORDER
IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE.
It is only the effect of the ten words which keeps the Peoples of the World in the Illusion of

Separateness, One from Another, and from God.
FREEDOM: Is it in truth a reality or simply a wonderful concept of man? Do you believe that

this world was made by God who then placed man upon the earth and told him to go forth and
multiply? Was man created by God to live free? Can anyone really be sure when man discovered
that he was free?
The origin of man's knowledge of freedom and of a God who, it is believed, made him free is

unknown. Mankind has always struggled and fought for freedom. Mankind flourishes in freedom.
Freedom is the self-evident truth that has passed from father to son, mother to daughter,
from the beginning of creation.
From the myths, tradition and cultural history of mankind there is a lesson that can be learned.

I'm not sure but it seems to me our most important freedom is the freedom of choice;

New International Version (NIV)
Joshua 24:15 New International Version (NIV)
15 "But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve,... As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

The Eagle
"For those who say I represent power and might, I tell you that is not true. I stand more for harmony, peace, and height, freedom, soaring spirit and simple joys. Yes, I have strength, but it is so I can nourish my children nested high in the hallowed arms of Earth.
"Let me be for you a living reminder, a messenger of Unity from the ancestors of this land, and for all who would transform the red dust into the sacred circle. This is the meaning of the Latin words on the scroll I carry. E Pluribus Unum, Out of Many, One. You are one with your ancestors, one with your descendents, one with all the creatures of land, sky, and water - even with the rooted ones. Remember this, and your heart will soar with the spirit of the Eagle."

“Soul Loss...arising in all people of all ages, genders, races, and backgrounds. Cause generally
contributed to an inner spiritual 'unawareness'. Often it is said, one feels an 'emptiness' within,
that may bring cause of unusual emotional stress, that may also alter ones true personality.
A fragmented inner self generates confusion and unimaginable illusions pertaining to the ability
to living life with God's 'principles' as a necessary and essential focus."
'Praise God'

Peace Pilgrim
1908 - 1981




On her pilgrimage from 1953 until her new beginning in 1981

"A pilgrimage is a gentle journey of prayer and example. My walking is first of all a prayer for peace. If you give your life as a prayer you intensify the prayer beyond measure."-- Peace Pilgrim
Peace Pilgrim walked more than 25,000 miles across this country spreading her message - "This is the way of Peace: Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love." Carrying in her tunic pockets her only possessions, she vowed, "I shall remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food." She talked with people on dusty roads and city streets, to church, college, civic groups, on TV and radio, discussing peace within and without.
Her pilgrimage covered the entire peace picture: peace among nations, groups, individuals, and the very important inner peace - because that is where peace begins.
She believed that world peace would come when enough people attain inner peace. Her life and work showed that one person with inner peace can make a significant contribution to world peace.

"This has been learned through the wisdom of Creation that man works for only four things in life: Peace, Love, Joy, And Purpose and these things cannot be found in external things and possessions. They can only be found within. Modern society tries to force its beliefs on the world, blindly assuming that societies with few possessions are primitive, yet never stopping to ask itself if these people they call primitive are happy. Instead our society tries to force its beliefs on them and so the lie continues to be perpetuated. Modern man seems never to slow down long enough to search his soul. He cannot stop chasing the goal, and the tyranny of both the chase and its elusive end thwart his quest for fulfillment. He cannot see the value of a Spiritual Life."

This is heart rendingly true. The consumer society model leads most to feel inferior if they think they lack possessions. And unfulfilled regardless if they do or not. what we may or may not own will never fill a spiritual void inside. It's no wonder so many turn to drugs, food and or porn. They don't know how to be still and accept serenity and peace. Nobody ever taught it. It's not on TV and it can't be bought. :cry:

A Grandfather Teaching ®
A Warrior.......
Listen to me carefully and remember every word.
A warrior is not a soldier.
A soldier is trained to fight and follow orders.
A warrior is trained to think for himself and fight only as a last resort.
A warrior is the first to begin and the last to quit .
He laughs the hardest and loves the best.
Stand your ground in all things and only give ground out of kindness.

A warrior is not a follower, nor is he a leader except at great need.
A warrior learns from the animals, the hills, and the rivers.
He respects all things of the earth as if they were his own heart.
All men and all spirits are equals.

A warrior never begs or pleads, nor does he give in to hopelessness and despair.
Whether the warrior is successful or tries valiantly only to have failed, he thanks the Great Spirit for the opportunity and the lessons.
A warrior cares for the weakest and least of his brothers, humbling himself in their service.
He seeks wisdom in all things and learns from even the dullest, for all are his teachers.

A warrior leaves judgment of his brothers and sisters to the Great Spirit, but does not tolerate disrespectful behavior in his presence.

'Making claim of being saved carries an accountability of great importance which should
not be overlooked, and that is to be a spiritual messenger to glorify Christ our Lord, and
to help lead others to knowing of God's love and inspiration in living life here in the now."

If religion worked, the people of religion would not be constantly fighting amongst themselves over
who is right or wrong, and there would be no need for us to be here.
As long as we maintain a religious point of view we will continue to have discord amongst ourselves.
There are simple spiritual principles and steps which will insure our survival in the face of all

events which will occur in our life. We have heard about all of them before. They are something we
already know, even though we haven't practiced them very well, as yet. If we want to SURVIVE
and SURVIVE WELL, put them into practice!

'Praise God'

Grandpa's Hands
by Melinda Clements


Grandpa, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench. He didn't move, just sat with his head down staring at his hands.
When I sat down beside him he didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat I wondered if he was OK.
Finally, not really wanting to disturb him but wanting to check on him at the same time, I asked him if he was OK.
He raised his head and looked at me and smiled. "Yes, I'm fine, thank you for asking," he said in a clear strong voice.
"I didn't mean to disturb you, Grandpa, but you were just sitting here staring at your hands and I wanted to make sure you were OK," I explained to him.
"Have you ever looked at your hands," he asked. "I mean really looked at your hands?"
I slowly opened my hands and stared down at them. I turned them over, palms up and then palms down. No, I guess I had never really looked at my hands as I tried to figure out the point he was making. Grandpa smiled and related this story:
"Stop and think for a moment about the hands you have, how they have served you well throughout your years. These hands, though wrinkled, shriveled and weak have been the tools I have used all my life to reach out and grab and embrace life.
"They braced and caught my fall when as a toddler I crashed upon the floor.
"They put food in my mouth and clothes on my back.
"As a child my Mother taught me to fold them in prayer.
"They tied my shoes and pulled on my boots.
"They held my rifle and wiped my tears when I went off to war.
"They have been dirty, scraped and raw, swollen and bent.
"They were uneasy and clumsy when I tried to hold my newborn son.
"Decorated with my wedding band they showed the world that I was married and loved someone special.
"They wrote the letters home and trembled and shook when I buried my Parents and Spouse and walked my Daughter down the aisle.
"Yet, they were strong and sure when I dug my buddy out of a foxhole and lifted a plow off of my best friend's foot.
"They have held children, consoled neighbors, and shook in fists of anger when I didn't understand.
"They have covered my face, combed my hair, and washed and cleansed the rest of my body.
"They have been sticky and wet, bent and broken, dried and raw.
"And to this day when not much of anything else of me works real well these hands hold me up, lay me down, and again continue to fold in prayer.
"These hands are the mark of where I've been and the ruggedness of my life.
"But more importantly it will be these hands that God will reach out and take when he leads me home.
"And with my hands He will lift me to His side and there I will use these hands to touch his face."
I will never look at my hands the same again. But I remember God reached out and took my Grandpa's hands and led him home.
When my hands are hurt or sore or when I stroke the face of my children and wife I think of Grandpa. I know he has been stroked and caressed and held by the hands of God. I, too, want to touch the face of God and feel His hands upon my face.
When you receive this, say a prayer for the person who sent it to you and watch God's answer to prayer work in your life.
Let's continue praying for one another .
