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)

There is an over-whelming, exhaustive-flood of so-called “information”… a raging mud-flood of a virtual-kind on-line–the internet/the media, in print, etc….caution is needed… so as not to drown!! And to stay afloat/alive in the pure-*sea-of-Accuracy!!:)

(*Sea/see…positive results aka wisdom is proved true by clear evidence.)

(That’s where i choose to swim (*see results); in safe waters (of accuracy) without sharks, snakes, profiteers, etc., Piranha!-OUCH.)

am very selective about my mind-food…(If we are what we eat, i wanna be sweet and not bitter!😉 and healthy, happy, and hopeful. 🙂

{So much so-called “information” “knowledge” is tainted by bias, self-serving-opinion, and extreme-emotion or power-money-motive..in my POV;)}

i thoroughly “respect” this ancient-Biblical warning:

The words of the wise are like oxgoads, and their collected sayings are like firmly embedded nails; they have been given from one shepherd. 12 As for anything besides these, my son, be warned: To the making of many books there is no end, and much devotion to them is wearisome to the flesh. Ecclesiastes 12:12…

3 “Curiosity has long been a human trait. The dangers of wasting too much time in the pursuit of useless or even harmful information were recognized back in the days of King Solomon.”

i am a learner… and value study/research–“accuracy” every day: to aid in sound-balanced-accurate decision-making that doesn’t endanger/hurt my life or fellow-fragile-life or cut it short..

 Some individuals have become information addicts, always feeding an insatiable desire to be up-to-date while neglecting more important things. Others acquire partial information about complex fields of knowledge and then view themselves as experts. Based on only a limited understanding, they may make crucial decisions that can cause harm to themselves or to others. And always present is the danger of exposure to false or inaccurate information. There is often no reliable way to verify that the flood of information is accurate and balanced. w 5/1/00 par. 2

Is it a “trap” to fall into mind-binge-eating?! Is one mind/one stomach “actually” capable of or have legitimate accessibility to all known mind-food out there?! Does the “arrogant” mind-binger say… “hmmm, I know-it-all because I’ve eaten it all…the (junk??) food out there/readily available aka anything/everything I can get my mind on… and am now left empty or with sour stomach/indigestion or worse (and unsatisfied and still hungry)… so (is it “reasonable” for the junk-food mind-binger to conclude), there must not exist “any” healthy, whole, nutritious, satisfying-truth-food?!”

Just like physical food choices have short/long-term positive or negative health affects…

 Personally, my mind-appetite is always satisfied by scripture…

16 I applied my heart to acquire wisdom and to see all the activity* happening on the earth,+ even going without sleep day and night.* 17 Then I considered all the work of the true God, and I realized that mankind cannot comprehend what happens under the sun.+ No matter how hard men try, they cannot comprehend it. Even if they claim that they are wise enough to know, they cannot really comprehend it.+ Ecclesiastes chapter 8.

Juicy Bones;)… check it out…[article: w01 “A Healing to Your Navel“]

IT IS believed that a large number of mankind’s illnesses are triggered by such emotional stresses as fear, sorrow, envy, resentment, hatred, and guilt. In view of this, how comforting the Bible’s statement that the ‘fear of Jehovah’ is “a healing to your navel and a refreshment to your bones”!— Proverbs 3:7, 8

The bones are the supporting framework of the body. Thus, the Bible uses the word “bones” metaphorically, to represent one’s being—especially as affected by deep feelings and emotions. But how is the fear of Jehovah “a healing to your navel”?

Bible scholars differ in their opinions regarding the mention of the “navel” in this passage. One expositor says that because it is at “the central region of the body,” the “navel” may be representative of all the vital organs. Another scholar suggests that the word “navel” may mean the umbilical cord, as it is used at Ezekiel 16:4. If this is so, Proverbs 3:8 may be emphasizing our need for utter dependence upon God—much as a helpless fetus is completely dependent upon its mother for nourishment. Still another idea is that “navel” may here refer to the muscles and tendons of the body. In the context of this verse, it may be that these parts are being contrasted with the “bones”—the body’s more solid components.

 Whatever…

Whatever the specific meaning, one thing is certain: Displaying a reverential fear of Jehovah is the course of wisdom. Conforming to God’s standards can contribute to our physical well-being now. More than that, it can bring Jehovah’s favor upon us, which will lead to endless life in perfect health—physically and emotionally—in his coming new world.— Isaiah 33:24 “And no resident will say: “I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error.

Revelation 21:4

And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Revelation 22:1, 2

And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of its main street. On both sides of the river were trees of life producing 12 crops of fruit, yielding their fruit each month. And the leaves of the trees were for the healing of the nations.
