“Danger, Danger!!”….Don’t Be a “Robot” Lost in Space!

Dude(s), don’t be duped!!… by “advertising” dupes (aka Big Business aka Big Religion; aka Big/Fake Media aka Big Fake Leadership/Government)… Please, check out this excerpted reading…[reference: December 2015…“What Is Wrong With Christmas Customs?”]

For one thing, there is the myth of Santa Claus. The modern-day jolly, white-bearded, rosy-cheeked, red-suited Santa is known to have been a successful Christmas advertisement created for a North American beverage company in 1931. During the 1950’s, some Brazilians tried to replace Santa Claus with a native legendary figure—Grandpa Indian. The result? Santa Claus not only defeated Grandpa Indian but even “defeated the child Jesus and became the official representative of the feast of December 25,” says Professor Carlos E. Fantinati. But are myths such as Santa Claus the only problem with Christmas? For the answer, let us go back to early Christianity.

Veneers… old ways…

In the fourth century C.E., despite the stand taken by the early Christians against the custom of celebrating birthdays, the Catholic Church instituted Christmas. The church wanted to strengthen its position by removing one of the main obstacles in its way—the popularity of the pagan Roman religions and their winter solstice festivals. Each year, from December 17 through January 1, “most Romans feasted, gamed, reveled, paraded, and joined in other festivities as they paid homage to their deities,” says Christmas in America, by Penne L. Restad. And on December 25, the Romans celebrated the birth of the Invincible Sun. Instituting Christmas on that day, the church cajoled many Romans into celebrating the birth of Jesus instead of the birth of the sun. Romans “were still able to enjoy the trappings of these midwinter festivals,” says Santa Claus, a Biography, by Gerry Bowler. In reality, they “continued to mark the new days with old ways.”

To walk well/safely… function optimally/healthy/(compassionately)… physically, (mentally, emotionally, and spiritually)…(simple logic) takes what?…a spine? a crooked spine? a straight spine?!

Clearly, then, the main problem with Christmas celebrations lies in their unsavory origins. In his book The Battle for Christmas, Stephen Nissenbaum refers to Christmas as “nothing but a pagan festival covered with a Christian veneer.” “There is no biblical or historical reason to place the birth of Jesus on December 25.”

Christmas, therefore, dishonors God and his Son, Jesus Christ. Is this just a trivial matter? The Bible asks: “What fellowship do righteousness and lawlessness have? Or what sharing does light have with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14) Like the trunk of a tree that has grown crooked, Christmas is so twisted that it “cannot be made straight.”—Ecclesiastes 1:15.

i am not spineless!..i am “courageous”…being guided by “truth”… (aka sound Bible principles)…accurate knowledge keeps me safe, alive, and well in any space (in time)!:)

(stumbling/fumbling around in the dark (inaccuracies, etc.) can get You hurt!… taken advantage of; robbed; enslaved; programmed; controlled; or worse–premature death most likely!:(

{BTW: as a kid, loved the TV show Lost in Space;} (also, of note, young-inexperienced explorers… can easily become prey!)

Around the world, nearly two billion people celebrate Christmas each December 25, while at least 200 million others celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ on January 7. However, there are also millions who choose not to celebrate Christmas at all. Why?

For one thing, they may belong to a religion that is not part of Christendom. They may be of the Jewish, Hindu, or Shinto faith, to name a few. Others, such as atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, or secular humanists, view the Christmas story as a myth.

First, they do not believe that Jesus was born in either December or January. The Bible does not give a specific date. It simply states: “There were also in that same country shepherds living out of doors and keeping watches in the night over their flocks. And suddenly Jehovah’s angel stood by them, and . . . the angel said to them: ‘. . . There was born to you today a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’”— Luke 2:8-11.

Facts point to Jesus’ birth at approximately the beginning of October when shepherds with their flocks would still spend the night in the fields. The countryside around Bethlehem experiences the coldest weather during the months of December and January. Hence, to keep them warm at night, flocks are herded into protective shelters.

A second reason: The only event Jesus specifically instructed his followers to commemorate was his death, not his birth, and this was to be done as a simple communion meal. (Luke 22:19, 20) Note, too, that the Gospels of Mark and John are silent about Jesus’ birth.

A third reason: There is no historical evidence that the early Christians celebrated the birth of the Christ. But they did memorialize his death. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26) It was not until more than 300 years after Jesus’ birth that Christendom officially began to observe Christmas on December 25. Interestingly, in the mid-17th century, an act of parliament banned Christmas celebrations in England. In the United States, the Massachusetts General Court did the same. [excerpted reading: Why Do Some People Not Celebrate Christmas? w 2012]

As a mature-adult-woman…i choose “real” life… and “real” freedom. Real, refreshing recreation, etc.

i am not gonna be “knowingly” controlled…like the “unknowing” masses of mankind… duped into spending time/money/etc….and more on fake, enslaving, popular practices; enslaving rituals of mind/body on demand… by fake religion/fake media… for big business to profit off me!!

(Healthy recreation is refreshing… not endangering escapism.)

(insert snarky tone)…Oh, and this stance/stand makes me quite popular!;)

(Coercive-compulsory giving… is it really gracious generosity?!)

Attempting to live… using (not abusing) my free-will wisely… according to “accurate” knowledge and heartfelt-compassion…is a daily intention…unconditional!…whether rain or shine; hot or cold; winter or spring… on “every day” of the so-called calendar year.

Happiness has been described as a state of well-being that is characterized by relative permanence, by emotions ranging from mere contentment to deep and intense joy in living, and by a natural desire for it to continue.

Further, as an ongoing state of well-being, happiness has been described, not as a destination or goal, but as a journey. To say, “I’ll be happy when . . .” is, in effect, postponing happiness.

To illustrate, compare happiness with good health. How do we enjoy that state of physical well-being? We follow a wise path in regard to diet, exercise, and overall lifestyle. Likewise, happiness results from following a good path in life, living in harmony with sound principles.

On-going well-being… is a journey/path of sound/helpful-healthful principles by which to walk happily!:)

believers & non-believers

change conscientious-ness education Hope insights Joan Winifred logic safety wisdom

Some of us believe. Some of us don’t.
I am a believer!
(“the things seen temporary, the things unseen everlasting”)…

My FULL confidence is in the TRUE God of Compassion and therefore, I seriously strive each day to live compassion to the best of my limited abilities expressed to both believers and non. Simultaneously, I must protect my spiritual values, my spirituality, my spiritual heritage aka my now and my future…

I love my fellow-fragile-life and respect-all-life and Earth!!!:) And respect the power of choice and free will… however, not all fragile-life out there… has unreservedly “dedicated” their life to the God of compassion or to living compassion as I have… nor are even remotely interested in such a life-course/life-style…or remotely interested in enlightenment. For me, personally, to continue on my course/compassion endeavor, aspiration:  it’s logical to limit my close/er association and very-close involvement with non-believers …those who by their choices and actions endanger themselves, the planet, and pose a real threat to my spirituality, my over-all health, my peace, my life even… it is a protection and a safeguard and practical/wise!

It’s probably life-preserving as well to surround yourself selectively only with those who highly respect the sacredness of life and peace, and who strive to live that way … who don’t take unnecessary risks that endanger others’ well-being or life in general… or who don’t intentionally damage, abuse power nor position.

(Yes, I respect those closest to me, my Family, make different decisions!! (and while valuing compassion)… and may be? at different stages of their spiritual development… or may not have the same aspirations/hope for the future…and this can be, at times, a difficulty, a source of friction, pain, and embarrassment for some…i think.)

Those–the closest to me/my intimate, inner circle… are “serious” compassion-seekers, truth-seekers,  and students-of-compassion, and the Bible, and followers-of-the-example-of-Jesus…they genuinely live in the safe, self-sacrificing compassion circle and not the dangerous, self-serving one.

(it’s a place of spiritual security and trust… a spiritual paradise/oasis.)

For example, serious athletes say gymnasts… train together, associate together, get it… understand the life-style and what is required… and willingly and freely make any needed changes and sacrifices to function at that level of discipline. Do gymnasts have interactions and love and respect non-gymnasts?  sure…

However…IF we seriously want to succeed…

We all need a support group of one sort or another to encourage us to reach any life goals.

Compassion is my healthy-life-style. Others are warmly welcome to join me aka choose feely to live compassion completely and committedly!:)

Truth Seekers… (aka accurate knowledge seekers)…

“Before the decree takes effect, before the day passes by like chaff, before the burning anger of Jehovah comes upon you, Before the day of Jehovah’s anger comes upon you, Seek Jehovah, all you meek ones (humble ones) of the earth, Who observe his righteous degrees, Seek righteousness, seek meekness, Probably you will be concealed in the day of Jehovah’s anger.” (Zephaniah 2:2, 3)

Hoping to elaborate more on the afore-mentioned verses… in another post…🙂

3. Nationalism…a rip off… not true-united-brotherhood-of-global-fellow-fragile-life seeking the unselfish best interests of all.

4. Fame & Fortune… a rip off… not true friendship nor true security…

“There are companions ready to crush one another; But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” PRO verbs 18:24

“For wisdom is a protection just as money is a protection, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves the life of its owner.” Eccl. 7:12

“As a city broken through, without a wall, is the man who cannot control his temper.” PRO verbs 25:28

Put away from yourselves every kind of malicious bitterness, anger, wrath, screaming, and abusive speech, as well as everything injurious. 32 But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31, 32

The END of Framework (Part 2)

Breathing-Fragile-Life insights Joan Winifred leadership logic never giving up! things i learned world

Need some context for this post, please see the-end-of-framework-part-1

Throughout history… ages and eras end/conclude (i.e. various historical periodizations)…what about the present system of things/framework of human society??… of course, it, too, will come to an end; a close…a finale… in stages…(and what are You/i gonna do about it?!) Depends.

The framework of human society and its various sectors… basically, break down to (3) category: government, religion, business… these three are intertwined… in bed together, all three will be exposed/destroyed. (I have NO DOUBT it will happen! And most likely sooner then later.)

The world scene has changed is changing… as i write this. Everyday evidence is mounting aka confirming Biblical prophecy fulfillment. Relevant readings and pasting excerpts to help You logically reason Reader:) on this life-changing-saving topic: Check it out:

“When anyone wicked bears rule, the people sigh,” says the Bible.—Proverbs 29:2.

History is filled with dictators who ruled with an iron fist, bringing untold suffering to their subjects. Of course, that is not true of all rulers. Some may have the best of intentions for their fellowmen. However, once they are in power, they often find that their efforts are frustrated by infighting and power struggles. Or they may abuse their power for personal gain, to the detriment of the people. “History is a tale of efforts that failed, of aspirations that weren’t realized,” said former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

The Bible also points out: “It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step.” (Jeremiah 10:23) Imperfect humans lack the necessary wisdom and foresight to manage all their own affairs successfully. If people cannot direct their own steps, how can they direct the steps of a nation? Can you see why human rulers do not have the ability to eliminate suffering? In fact, more often than not, bad government, or rulership, is the cause of suffering!

The afore-mentioned is partly why I chose a long time ago to be/remain politically neutral, to remain separate–a safety precaution, huh! As soon as anybody, even “seemingly” competent, nice, good, etc. gets in office– you know something hurtful/bad is gonna happen: some innocent person/fragile-life will be killed, maimed, hurt, etc… from an abuse of power of some sort. (I am fragile-life and have a lot to learn, however, I highly respect the sacredness/preciousness of life and would not want unintentionally to cause its loss.)

Love, Love, Love… where?? Is the love

“By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves,” said Jesus.—John 13:35.

Religious leaders of every creed and denomination preach love and unity. The reality is that they have failed to instill in their followers a love strong enough to eliminate biases. Rather than helping to cultivate love, religion often contributes to the division, bigotry, and strife among peoples and national groups. In the conclusion of his book Christianity and the World Religions, theologian Hans Küng wrote: “The most fanatical, the cruelest political struggles are those that have been colored, inspired, and legitimized by religion.”

You with me… so far?… discussed 2 causes of suffering… bad (aka non-compassionate) government, bad (aka non-compassionate) religion… Okay, so IF I consciously choose to have nothing to do with so-called bad government and bad religion (aka abusive relationships needing severing to sustain life/health) and stay totally separate/uninvolved/unattached (meaning also having no part in any and all so-called fake holy days, etc…that manipulate the masses in spending money and time; forms of escapism from harsh reality of truth. Further context please see: halloween-twenty-thirteen/easter-eggs-and-chocolate/in-formed-un-in-formed/1-all-you-need-is/)…{please do Your own research on the origins of any/all so-called religious or nationalistic “holy” day… please, make an “accurately informed” choice. My own research has shown me much evidence that the holidays are a bunch of lies, lies and more lies…i value TRUTH aka accurate knowledge. (Life experience and simple logic teaches insufficient, misinformation, inaccuracies, lies: ultimately hurt, damage or kill. Just think about…all the trees, turkeys, life lost… and by drunk drivers, etc. and violence/anger/stress/distress occurring around and because of holidays.}

UGHH:( why am I still suffering??…

“Each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin.”—James 1:14, 15.

All of us, because of inherited imperfection, are prone to errors and mistakes and have to fight against the desire for “doing the things willed by the flesh.” (Ephesians 2:3) When wrong desire coincides with opportunity, however, the battle can be especially challenging. If we give in to hurtful desire, the results can be devastating.

Author P. D. Mehta wrote: “A vast amount of suffering is due to our own lust, to our feverish pleasure-seeking and self-indulgence, to our greed and our ambition.” Cravings and addictions of all kinds—alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, and so on—have ruined many “respectable citizens” and have brought suffering to their family, friends, and others. In view of mankind’s imperfect nature, we have to agree when the Bible says: “It is plain to anyone with eyes to see that at the present time all created life groans in a sort of universal travail.—Romans 8:22, The New Testament in Modern English, by J. B. Phillips.

Where we happen to live… plays a part in our suffering as well…

Some two thousand years ago, the Bible foretold: “Know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.”

Pointing out what makes the times critical, it goes on to say: “For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, . . . having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God.” Surely a key reason for all the suffering we see today is that we are living in “the last days.”—2 Timothy 3:1-4. [excerpts: Why All The Suffering? w 2013]

There are other factors contributing to suffering; of course… but I am trying to move this post on to more positives…:)…( please check out: “The End of Framework part 3″…when it’s posted.)

So, how do we cope??… some of us cannot help where we live and we had no control of when in history we were born or under what framework of human society… what family born into, what country, what government, what religion…chance happenings beyond our control. Or some of us have made certain major/minor life decisions… based on insufficient or mis-information…that have caused pain, etc…

what do we do NOW?

HOPE!!!… gives us power… to act with new insights… courage to gain more accurate knowledge… to patiently never give up in doing what is fine/compassionate aka applying these new insights in daily life…that bring us to a measure of happiness/satisfaction/self-respect now.

More readings…(my highlights)

 […], the inspired Scriptures also foretold that in our day, a misdirected kind of love characterized by selfishness would be shown by people who are alienated from God. The apostle Paul wrote: “In the last days . . . , men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, . . . lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God.” (2 Tim. 3:1-4) […] Pursuing selfish goals does not bring people the happiness  that they expect. Indeed, such love fosters a selfish world that is “hard to deal with.”

“Men will be lovers of themselves,” wrote the inspired apostle. Is it wrong for us to love ourselves? No, it is normal, even necessary, to have a healthy love of self. Jehovah designed us that way. Jesus said: “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12:31) If we do not love ourselves, we cannot love our neighbor. We also read in the Scriptures: “Husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. A man who loves his wife loves himself, for no man ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cherishes it.” (Eph. 5:28, 29) So a proper love of self is desirable.

The love of self mentioned at 2 Timothy 3:2 is not a normal, healthy love. It is a distorted, selfish love. People who love themselves excessively think more of themselves than it is necessary for them to think. (Read Romans 12:3  “For through the undeserved kindness given to me, I tell everyone there among you not to think more of himself than it is necessary to think,  but to think so as to have a sound mind, each one as God has given *(apportioned/distributed) to him a measure of faith.” ) Their main interest in life is themselves. They care little about others. When things go wrong, they tend to blame others rather than accept responsibility. One Bible commentary likens those who are lovers of themselves to “the hedgehog which . . . rolls itself up in a ball, keeping the soft, warm wool for itself . . . and . . . presents the sharp spines to those without.” Such self-centered people are not truly happy.

 Bible scholars suggest that love of self is put at the top of the apostle Paul’s list of negative qualities that would be prevalent during the last days because the other qualities result from it. In contrast, people who love God produce a much different kind of fruitage. The Bible associates godly love with joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, and self-control. (Gal. 5:22, 23) “Happy is the people whose God is Jehovah!” wrote the psalmist. (Ps. 144:15) Jehovah is a happy God, and his people reflect that quality. Furthermore, unlike those who are lovers of themselves and who are interested only in receiving, Jehovah’s servants find delight in giving of themselves for the welfare of others.​—Acts 20:35 “I have shown you in all things that by working hard in this way, you must assist those who are weak and must keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, when he himself said: ‘There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.’”

We all need money, of course. It provides a measure of protection. (Eccl. 7:12) But can a person be truly happy if he has only enough for his basic needs? Absolutely! (Read Ecclesiastes 5:12 “”Sweet is the sleep of the one serving, whether he eats little or much, but the plenty belonging to the rich one does not permit him to sleep. “) Agur son of Jakeh wrote: “Give me neither poverty nor riches. Just let me consume my portion of food.” We can readily understand his reason for not wanting to be extremely poor. As he went on to explain, he did not want to be tempted to steal because theft would dishonor God. But why did he pray not to have riches? He wrote: “So that I do not become satisfied and deny you and say, ‘Who is Jehovah?’” (Prov. 30:8, 9) Likely you can think of people who trust in their wealth rather than in God.

 As foretold, many people today are “lovers of pleasures.” Just as there is nothing wrong with a healthy, reasonable view of self and money, there is nothing wrong with a balanced view of pleasures. Jehovah does not want us to practice severe self-denial or to abstain from wholesome activities that bring enjoyment. The Bible encourages faithful ones: “Go, eat your food with rejoicing, and drink your wine with a cheerful heart.”​—Eccl. 9:7. [excerpted What Kind of Love Brings True Happiness?]

Recap of Part 2: 1 reason for our suffering: we are living in the last days of the framework of human society characterized by negative traits/ethical chaos caused by distorted, non-compassionate, selfish love.  Other contributing factors to suffering: in either a less or more degree:…depending on our personal involvement/attachment (or not) in government and religion.  As well as inherited imperfection and hurtful desires…cause suffering.  All these types of sufferings can be reduced and will be eliminated and are of a temporary nature in the stream of time.  We can do our part:

  1. We can harness desire.
  2. We can cultivate and grow unselfish love expressed through compassionate deeds.
  3. We can abandon false religion and its enslaving practices/rituals.
  4. Change unhealthy habits that cut life short.
  5. Choose political neutrality.

“Cone” of Uncertainty

attitude compassion conscientious-ness control Joan Winifred logic

Wish i was talking about an ice cream cone.

Staying calm in the cone of uncertainty…

“perhaps” quite crucial for survival!

Generally speaking…(and not just concerning hurricanes and any potential impacts)…some of us get all worked up when their isn’t enough accurate information to make an informed logical assessment.

Fear, negative emotions, and anxiety can dictate rash and dash decisions that can prove fatal and not wise nor life-saving.

Sometimes, you need to be patience and wait and see how things may turn out, but take all necessary precautions and preventive measures for safety.

Before a major event: Yeah, prep for the worse and positively hope and pray for the best…possible outcome.

Prepare and Don’t Panic!

  • In a fire. Stay close to the floor, and move quickly to the nearest exit. Smoke makes it hard to see, and most fire deaths are caused by smoke inhalation. Leave behind personal items. Seconds can make the difference between life and death.

    In an earthquake. Get under sturdy furniture or next to an inside wall. Expect aftershocks, and get outside and away from buildings as soon as you can. Trained rescuers may not arrive for hours, so try to rescue others if you can.

    In a tsunami. If the water suddenly rushes away from the shore, move quickly to higher ground. Expect more and larger waves.

    In a tornado or a hurricane. Go to a storm shelter without delay.

    In a flood. Stay out of flooded buildings. Avoid wading in or driving through water. Floodwater can contain sewage and conceal dangers, including debris, open manholes, and downed power lines.

    Did you know? Two feet [0.6 m] of moving water can carry a car away. Most deaths in a flood result when people try to drive through moving water.

    If the authorities order evacuation, leave immediately! Let friends know where you are, or they may risk their lives looking for you.

    Did you know? Text messaging may be more reliable than telephone voice service.

    If the authorities direct residents to remain at home or shelter in place, stay inside. In case of an outdoor chemical, biological, or nuclear accident or attack, stay indoors, turn off ventilation, and seal all doors and windows. In a nuclear event, go to the lowest internal part of your building to reduce exposure to radiation. Listen to local TV or radio news. Stay indoors until authorities announce that the threat has passed. [excerpted Disaster–Steps That Could Save Lives Awake! No. 5 2017]

Be Safe Readers and Remain Calm in the Cone of Uncertainty!:)…

Structural integrity is the ability of a structure to withstand its intended loading without failing due to fracture, deformation, or fatigue.

H.F.T…Harvesting, Funneling, and Trapping

attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life comfort hope Joan Winifred logic never giving up!

To keep themselves warm during cold weather, butterflies spread their wings in the sun. The wings of some species of swallowtail are remarkably efficient at trapping and absorbing sunlight. The insects’ secret lies not just in their dark pigment but also in the structure of microscopic, overlapping scales coating their wings. The scales, in turn, contain rows of honeycomblike holes separated by inverse V-shaped ridges that funnel light into the holes. This ingenious structure traps incoming sunlight, making the wings extremely black and warming the butterfly with amazing efficiency.

“Butterfly wings may rank among the most delicate structures in nature,” says Science Daily, “but they have given researchers powerful inspiration for new technology that doubles the production of hydrogen gas—a green fuel of the future—from water and sunlight.” [excerpted Article/my bold highlights: Was It Designed? The Light-Absorbing Butterfly Wing AWAKE! 2014]

hmmmm…a no brainer to me, YES! An innovative-intelligent-chief-builder-designer constructed/created Butterfly wings!:)

Life Lesson: Don’t underestimate any (seemingly) delicate structure/frame/form…

If Butterflies can fly/function with 70% wing damage…

IF only 30% of my life is chaos/problem/challenge-free…i can still FLY HIGH!…survive 🙂
