Making something from "nothing" or…

…fixing lunch by chopping up whatever is on the kitchen counter and putting it in the oven

1 courgette ronde de Nice  (a round zucchini)

Cut it in half and then put the following in the blender:

a couple small tomatoes, about 1/3 cup chopped
the insides of the courgette scooped out with a grapefruit spoon
salt
pepper
thyme
2 cloves garlic
some harissa
one piece of bread
1 egg

Process until smooth.  Grease baking dish with olive oil.  Spoon filling into zucchini halves and bake until it looks done, probably about 40 minutes.

Don’t they look cute, curled up together there.  The bigger one needed to lean on the smaller one for balance.

Are you aware of your spiritual nature?

Can you feel “something left like a wisp of vague nostalgia of the very old days when he was a God, immersed in the Creator (Rev of Arès 2/13).”?

Picture Perfect – Sayings

Madame Alfred Carrière

What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.
                                             Shakespeare

Although words have power to hurt and to heal, they do not determine the intrinsic nature of a thing or person.  It is our acts which create and reveal our nature, a perfume we emit.

“When you are asked, ‘Which name should one bear in order to please the Lord?,’ reply, ‘It does not matter whether you are called Lentil or Goat, for if you devote your life to God, if you win renown as a penitent, pious, good man, your name will become as grand as Moses’ or Elijah’s.’”

The Revelation of Arès 36/19b

I took 16 shots of this, getting out a step ladder to climb up and trying different settings.  Strangely enough the faster speed setting was blurrier than the macro setting used here.  This photo still isn’t focused as I would like.  The sun is hiding and there is a light breeze.

A few words about my faith

Here are a few words about my faith in reply to a comment I received:

… I really wonder how you mix the coran and the bible in your daily life. What kind of worship does it create??? For example, do you pray and who? …

I believe in one God (the Creator, the Source-of-all-that-is) and that He speaks through His prophets. The most recent Message that I know of is The Revelation of Arès. I was very skeptical about it before reading it, but about halfway through it, I realized it is true. It shook up a lot of things I had believed previously. It revitalized my faith. In this Message, God refers to Muhammad as His messenger, therefore I began to read the Qur’an. It is from the same source, it is the same God who spoke through Adam, Azor, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Muhammad, Elijah, Isaiah, Jesus, and today Mikal (to name some of the prophets). Many other prophets were called but did not fulfill their mission.

Yes, I pray, in the way redefined by The Revelation of Arès, which is to pronounce His Word in order to accomplish It. I read softly out loud from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès, drinking in the Word, seeking to change within, so as to put my steps in line with God’s Steps.

The worship this creates is very personal, individual, even solitary.  It is the worship recommended by Jesus when he said to go into the upper room and pray.  At the same time, I am concerned about others; I try to remind them of what God has always said—be and do Good.  We can change the world if we change ourselves.

A Small Treat

                Today I found a way
                To give myself a treat.
                It’s just a little one
                And neither food nor drink.

                What do you think?
