I pushed away some debris and found these snowdrops in full bloom.
We can push away the rottenness from around our hearts to reveal the divine being within.
I found myself wondering if I could get into a fight at Walmart. I saw a couple of women on a yahoo video getting violent with each other and felt that was a pretty low thing but upon reflection, I fear it could possibly happen to me. As my husband pointed out, even though we are both penitent, striving to recreate ourselves Good, we still raise our voices with each other and it wouldn’t be that far for blows to be exchanged. It feels like it is lurking in emotions and reactions. So there is still some scraping away to do.
“…Mary, pregnant with the son, the woman sinner who also defied Me, but who made herself undergo great pain scraping the stains off her flesh, extracting the doubts from her heart, in order to be born again in purity, that woman who had been weaker than anyone else. Apart from her, who joined the spirits that stand in front of My Throne, (who ranks) among the golden luminaries,…”
The Revelation of Arès 12/12-13
“Look out for the tempter! I give you the strength to conquer him, but he is going to step up his wiles and efforts. Eve yielded to him, but Mary triumphed over him. Make your fellow traveler of her! Do not let go of her coat tail ever! When the snake sees her, it hurries away hissing.”
The Revelation of Arès 37/6
“The angel spoke to her with awe because he can only obey Me, (but) her, I listen to; on her lip I can hear man’s moans because she swallowed her defiance just as the servant holds back her vomit when her King is talking to her, between her nerves she crushed her pride and suppressed her laugh; she found the strength that lifts mountains, she attained the excellence of salvation.”
The Revelation of Arès 33/14
It took two people with higher education a certain lapse of time to fit these cheeses in the cheese drawer so that it could be slid back into place in the refrigerator. It felt like one of those extra-credit exercises given on a Friday afternoon just before vacation. I guess this would have been geometry class. We won’t mention how much time went by before we actually realized this is a cheese drawer.
As I ate my meal mainly composed of fruit, I began to pair the fruit and cheese. (I did have to pare the pear a bit where there were bruises.) I have seen many a guide to wine and cheese pairing, but never one for fresh fruit. My opinion is that Comté goes well with apple and pear goes nicely with Roquefort, but what to have with a banana? Yogurt is a good idea, maybe mascarpone would be ideal, but chèvre had to do for tonight. Maybe hardcore frugivores don’t eat cheese. But who could live in France and not eat cheese?
Yesterday a lot of people were out in the fresh air for a walk. I hope they weren’t too wrapped up in scarves and hats so that they got some vitamin D; it helps prevent depression. One could easily get depressed by the state of humanity but that would do no good in remedying the situation. We need plenty of motivation, energy and perseverance to accomplish the necessary changes.
I did not go march. One reason is that I live out in the country, had already been to town in the morning and did not want to drive there again. Another reason is I do not believe politics or religion have the solution and this march was being heavily exploited by any and all. If I had gone, my sign would have read “Aimez, pardonner, faire la paix, se libérer des préjugés, développer l’intelligence du Cœur, ‘car la Vérité est que le monde doit changer’ La Révélation d’Arès 28/7” (Love, forgive, make peace, be free from prejudice, develop the heart’s intelligence because the Truth is the world must change. The Revelation of Arès 28/7)
I am very sad for the events which occurred this past week. As long as we are alive, we can change, we have our bodies, we can do good which builds the soul. After death, this all becomes much harder. Too many lives were cut short whether it be those who provoked or those who were deluded into thinking violence is a solution. Underneath all this, there may be schemes and nefarious plotting. The system recuperates as much as possible to turn things to its advantage. For example saying see how much we need the police to protect you whereas they cannot do anything about what is in my heart or yours or that other guy who may insult or kill. I am the only one who can make the changes, changes within that then determine my actions.
Here is what I read in the Bible this morning:
You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. Matthew 5:38-42
Here is what I read in the Qur’an:
Say, “O people, the truth has come to you from your Lord. Whoever accepts guidance is guided for his own soul; and whoever strays only strays to its detriment. I am not a guardian over you.” Jonah (10): 108
Here is what I read in The Revelation of Arès:.
Adam hits the tree of (the) Word. (A) gaping (wound in it)! The tree weeps blood.
The blood (spurts) onto the head, the thigh (of Adam, which are) red.
Red! I am white (as) the Water.
Red are Adam(‘s) son and sons and sons, even Yuhshoo (is) pierced; (but) Muhammad hurls the iron.
(As for you,) you sit on the dry island, where Sha ‘ul drinks the rain, writhes with hunger.
Sha ‘ul speaks the Word in noise of noise. The island(ers turn) deaf, (they have a) pain (in) the(ir) ear(s), (they) shove Sha ‘ul into the sea.
(If) the blood(thirsty) force (you) to flee to the dry island, secure the Word there!
(The islanders) honor (you)! The island–My Eye turns around (it).
Under the thumb Yuhshoo’s eye (looks again); Muhammad(‘s) eye (is) full of Water.
Your eye (has) the Fire; the man (that follows you) can see the Blue Island far (off).
The Revelation of Arès xiv
The Blue Island, a changed world, Eden recreated, seems very far off now, but it is not an impossible dream. It depends on us.
