self-adjusting buoyancy…

Perhaps a very little thought will now enable you to account for those repeated whaling disasters—some few of which are casually chronicled—of this man or that man being taken out of the boat by the line, and lost. For, when the line is darting out, to be seated then in the boat, is like being seated in the midst of the manifold whizzings of a steam-engine in full play, when every flying beam, and shaft, and wheel, is grazing you. It is worse; for you cannot sit motionless in the heart of these perils, because the boat is rocking like a cradle, and you are pitched one way and the other, without the slightest warning; and only by a certain self-adjusting buoyancy and simultaneousness of volition and action, can you escape being made a Mazeppa of, and run away with where the all-seeing sun himself could never pierce you out.

Moby Dick “the line” chapter LX…

{alone… man… (clue less)… impossible! (tangled/tossed here and there, etc. death-driven) With…God…all things… possible (stability, etc. life-given)}

(Luke 18:27) He said: “The things impossible with men are possible with God.”

25 When the disciples heard that, they were greatly astounded, saying: “Who really can be saved?” 26 Looking at them intently, Jesus said to them: “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:25, 26)

Capernaum Perpetuity

attitude comfort compassion conscientious-ness Joan Winifred

“Surely the most enduring testament to the sage from Capernaum is that he continues to hold hearts and minds in his gentle grasp.”—AUTHOR GREGG EASTERBROOK.

The g~e~n~t~l~e grasp of mind holding… hmmm, more complicated/delicate/(sensitive/smart-skill-set) and more hands/hearts-on than hand holding…the perpetual state of living in the compassion space/village of Capernaum…aka “village of comforting” (definition of Capernaum, “V.O.C.”,–Insight on Scriptures, Vol. 1)…

Those needing comfort (just about all-of-us-fellow-fragile-life) are also, those of us giving/administering comfort, huh?… and those comforted possess/(ing) capacities for comforting…and in-depth comprehension(s) and application(s).

In my daily life/my daily intentions…don’t wanna be the village idiot!;)

(Comforting (and being comforted) is not a waste of my life/day/time.)

3 little birdies

attitude birds choice comfort compassion education Hope Joan Winifred mind food spiritual food things i learned worries

26 Observe intently the birds of heaven; they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. […] (Matthew 6:26)

To the animals he gives food,To the young ravens that call out for it. (Psalm 147:9)

An observation:  Do birds worry?!  No, they are busy eating, singing, flying, soaring–being birdies, lol 🙂

Worrying is paralyzing and damaging!… (and gets ya no where.)

“when” human“kind” (chooses compassion) …there is enough for everyone (to share)…🙂

the earth is rich!… full of plenty to sustain/maintain life… for birds, for people… for all-fellow-fragile-life!!… “when” man”cruel” selfishly mismanages Earth… misuses resources/abuses power…causing poverty, famine, hunger… and not just for food.

My positive outlook/Hope:  ultimately/eventually everything will be alright… with compassion (and Divine Intervention) education!

enjoyed this past reading(s)…

The Bible makes many references to birds, often to teach valuable lessons. For example, concerning the ostrich and its incredible speed, God said to a man named Job: “When she rises up and flaps her wings, she laughs at the horse and at its rider.”*The ostrich is the largest living bird, and it is the fastest runner, able to reach speeds of about 45 miles an hour (72 km/h) for short bursts.  (Job 39:13, 18) God also asked Job: “Is it by your understanding that the falcon soars, . . . or is it at your order that an eagle flies upward?” (Job 39:26, 27) The lesson? Birds perform their feats without any help from us. Their abilities testify to God’s wisdom, not ours. [excerpted “Observe Intently the BirdsAwake! 2014]

What i’ve come “to learn” through Bible study/practice (through the years)…is putting my personal preferences aside… and attempting to do “God’s” Will (and not just live by my own selfish will/desire/limited understanding/perspective of things/life)… aka living to the best of my abilities in harmony with the unfolding, progressive Divine Purpose… aka compassion, etc…things turn out alright & PEACE is found!:)

My experience: “there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.”

Check it out IF You🙂 choose…(further reading and research)…matthew/6/
