Preachy?? & Teachy?!
Sure, i am. Oh, come on, we all get PUMPED UP and P-U-S-H-Y, at times, and PASSIONATE!!…(topics may vary considerably among individuals).

Under and/or Overlooked by some…Spirituality–is crucial to well-being! We are beings and who doesn’t want to be well??! (btw: i am exhausted writing this…been staying up way too late 2-4 a.m. and partially due to  (busy learning brain) caring for sick kids…with barking asthma coughs. (Who can sleep sound when your kids’ breathing is NOISY? and needs monitoring.) Breathing–a gift–i don’t take for granted!)

In my POV, a healthy spiritual mind-set fosters a healthy physical body and healthy decision making processes that impact mind/body for the better. Healthy Spiritual Values impact life positively. (Yawn, YAWN)…sorry, to make You yawn…don’t fall asleep just yet. Please read on…

Actually, the intention of this post is a part two of Us Talkers. IF You like to talk or IF you like to listen…please read post first for the following context.

When we talk…the reaction/response we get…”probably” depends on the HEART LISTENING…:)

How do these people from Jesus’ hometown react to what they might see as unfavorable historical comparisons that expose their selfishness and lack of faith? Those in the synagogue get angry, rise up, and rush Jesus outside the city. They take him to the brow of the mountain upon which Nazareth is built, and they try to throw him over the edge. But Jesus escapes from their grasp and gets away safely. Jesus now heads down to Capernaum, on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee. [excerpted: At the Synagogue in Nazareth Jesus–the Way, Chapter 21]

Talking/teaching/preaching…with illustrations and scriptures…gets to the “heart of the matter” aka reveals the present heart condition of the individual…spiritually healthy? spiritually unhealthy? selfish? selfless? humble? arrogant? hurtful? kind?…responding in kind.

Perhaps what we say and how we say it…truly matters…on one hand, in one heart..but perhaps, on the other hand, in another heart…what truly matters most (when we-fellow-fragile-life engage in communication) is the (heart) soil (condition) from which a response (understanding) grows.

Hoping these posts help grow…Compassionate Heart Flowers aka Kind Words & Kind Deeds. 🙂

“[…]for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. […]

the entire counsel from this scripture:  Jesus rebuking the Pharisees…

Offspring of vipers, how can you speak good things when you are wicked? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.  35 The good man out of his good treasure sends out good things, whereas the wicked man out of his wicked treasure sends out wicked things.  36 I tell you that men will render an account on Judgment Day for every unprofitable*(or worthless) saying that they speak;  37 for by your words you will be declared righteous, and by your words you will be condemned.” 

(Matthew 12:34-37) 

Question for Reflection:

What do my words declare about me?

Atom Smashing IS Heart Healing

Books, books and more books. Authors, authors and more authors.

Clever humans can write books that only “wise and intellectual ones” can grasp. But to author a book that can be understood only by those having the right heart motivation—that takes the wisdom of God!—Matthew 11:25.

What is my heart motivation? (only i can “honestly” answer myself, eh?)

 The way in which the Bible is written serves to test what is in our heart. Hebrews 4:12 says: “The word [or, message] of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit . . . and is able to discern thoughts and intentions of the heart.”…

(to me, joanie, sounds like the ultimate atom smasher, eh?…to divide thoughts of the brain and intentions of the heart!)

When physicists first began using accelerators in the 1950s and1960s, they discovered hundreds of particles smaller than the three well-known subatomic particles — protons, neutrons and electrons. As bigger accelerators were built, ones that could provide higher energy beams, more particles were found. Most of these particles exist for only fractions (less than a billionth) of a second, and some particles combine to form more stable composite particles. Some particles are involved in the forces that hold the nucleus of the atom together, and some are not. In examining this complicated picture, a standard model of the atom has emerged.

According to this model, matter can be divided into the following building blocks:

  • Fermions – subatomic particles that make known matter and antimatter matter leptons – elementary particles that do not participate in holding the nucleus together (examples – electron, neutrino) quarks – elementary particles that do participate in holding the nucleus together anti-matter – counter-particles of quarks and leptons (anti-quarks, anti-leptons)
  • Hadrons – composite particles (examples – proton, neutron)
  • Bosons – particles that carry forces (four known types) excerpted: How Atom Smashers Work by Craig Freudenrich, Ph.D.

The Bible’s message pierces deep, revealing our true thinking and motives. Those who read it with a critical heart are often stumbled by accounts that do not contain enough information to satisfy them.

When you write a letter to a loved one, there is only so much you can include. So you use discretion in choosing what to write. Likewise, Jehovah God chose to mention certain individuals and events in his Word. But in these descriptive accounts, the Bible does not always spell out all the details. (John 21:25) For example, when the Bible tells of God’s judgment, the information provided may not answer our every question. Jehovah’s wisdom is seen even in what he chose to leave out of his Word. (excerpts: Draw Close to God, chptr 18: The Wisdom in the Word of God…my highlights)

Do i have to spell it/(smash it) out for Ya??;)

Love letters are usually understood by the people in love…the quarky…i mean quirky language, the nuanced words, etc., etc., the symbolism…basically, those with a pure/sincere/humble heart aka right heart motivation and o-p-e-n mind…understand the (deep) message of the Bible or aka the truth of its loving content/context (and benefit by its application)…which has been described by some as a letter of love w/instructions…(from a Heavenly Father to His Children) to help them grow to spiritual maturity/succeed/live long. They would then take this “heart” message of love/peace and share/show/demonstrate/teach TRUE love to all!:)

LOVE behaves/is: humble/patient/forgiving, etc.

What if we were to think that we are better than others because of our [..] abilities or privileges or because of the failures and weaknesses of others? We should quickly dismiss such thoughts, for the Scriptures say: “Love is patient; love is kind and envies no one. Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; never selfish, not quick to take offence. Love keeps no score of wrongs; does not gloat over other men’s sins, but delights in the truth.”—1 Cor. 13:4-6, The New English Bible. (excerpt: Watch Out for the Leaven of the Pharisees)

What is the “quality”/(particles) of my love and what is it building/what is it smashing?!

Thinking about: What, Where and Who?

I was thinking about…

THINKING about

–You :)–

and then thought

NO!

Why let myself/my mind/my heart…..go……………………………………………………….there/their

to (a) place(s)

i “may” never come back from

A L I V E

(emotionally or otherwise)

though

believe me please (aka it’s true)

when

i

say

I WOULD DIE FOR YOU and

probably/potentially (already) am

s~l~o~w~l~y (and otherwise)

of (a)

broken/mostly MENDED Heart…

THANK GOD…i am FIXED!…as in: (according to an on-line identity/description/definition of “fixed”)

fastened, attached, or placed so as to be firm and not readily movable; firmly implanted;
rendered stable or permanent, as color.
set or intent upon something; steadily directed: a fixed stare.
definitely and permanently placed: a fixed buoy; a fixed line of defense.
not fluctuating or varying; definite: a fixed purpose.
(You know: “eyes on the prize”)

i can only

L O V E

for now…(and)

HOPE  FULLY

in fixing/healing

You/Others…then!

when

i’m a fully functioning mind:  (aka absolute compassion (among other things))

(!HALLELUJAH!)

this is what i’m thinking:

“Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are of serious concern, whatever things are righteous, whatever things are chaste/pure, whatever things are lovable, whatever things are well-spoken-of, whatever things are virtuous, and whatever things are praiseworthy, continue considering/or thinking about/meditating on these things.” (Philippians 4:8)

Plus, the fresh air and sunshine is my disinfectant/(healer) as well:  recently read this in Awake! March 2015 excerpt: (my highlights)

 The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes that natural ventilation, which includes outside air flowing through a building, is important for infection control. Indeed, WHO guidelines published in 2009 encourage use of such natural ventilation as an effective measure in reducing the risk of infection at health-care facilities.

Studies conducted at a United Kingdom Ministry of Defence site provide some answers. Scientists there were trying to establish how long the air would remain dangerous if a biological weapon armed with harmful bacteria were exploded over London. To determine the viability of airborne pathogens, the researchers anchored E. coli microorganisms to threads of spider silk and exposed them to the open air. The experiment was performed at night, since it was known that sunlight kills these bacteria. What were the results?

Some two hours later, nearly all the bacteria were dead. Yet, when the bacteria were kept in a closed box in the same location and at the same temperature and humidity, most of them were still alive past the two-hour mark. Why? Evidently, something about being in the open air kills germs. This so-called open-air factor has not been clearly identified. However, researchers point to a compound that occurs naturally in open air and that “acts as a natural disinfectant against pathogens or germs that lurk in the atmosphere.”

Sunlight also has natural disinfecting properties. The Journal of Hospital Infection explains that “the majority of microbes that cause airborne infections cannot tolerate sunlight.

 My beloved/(country) grandma, resting in PEACE, Ella Mae Love-Wil—-, liked/sang this song & it (always) reminds me of Her (and Other Loved Ones! and my (long-gone) city youth and past New Hampshire Mountain family (camping) vacations)!

Treasure & Trash

Happy or hateful heart?!…hmmmmm

vulgarity vs. purity

hearts speak…trash talkin’? treasure talkin’? vulgar? pure?

some are tnt…just itching to explode, eh?..

Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.— Matthew 6:21

In a sense, a person’s earthly treasure could include prestige, fame, or power. Jesus made a point similar to the one Solomon made in the book of Ecclesiastes—worldly treasures are not lasting. As you have likely seen in the world around you, all such treasures are perishable and can be easily lost. Professor F. Dale Bruner writes of such treasures: “It is well known that fame is fickle. Last Saturday’s hero is next season’s has-been. This year’s financial success is next year’s bankruptcy. . . . [Jesus] loves human beings. He urges them to avoid the inevitable despair that comes with evanescent glory. It doesn’t last. Jesus does not want [his] disciples [to be] disappointed. ‘Every day the world turns over on someone who was just sitting on top of it.’” Though most people would agree with those comments, how many allow the reality behind them to alter their approach to life? Will you?

emotions are fickle..they come and go..why? let fleeting stuff i.e. anger/despair destroy you and those around you?

A key point is this: Our being truly successful does not depend on our achievements or position in the eyes of the world.

You may not be able to control your circumstances completely, but you can control how you deal with them. ~Find Real Success in life

Redirect Your efforts for lasting….treasure!

i’m only pure talkin’:)
