Don’t be ripped off…
by the ripper-off-ers!

Don’t be deceived… by the smoking smoke screens!

1. Alcohol & drug intoxication… a rip off …not true ecstasy.

2. Smoking/drugging… a rip off… not real air/oxygen…energy.

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

“The wealth of the rich is his fortified city; It is like a protective wall in his imagination.” PRO verbs 18:11

5. Latest technology… a rip off… IF mostly misused to hurt rather than help/heal…(Or to silence/kill instead of communicating/interacting/living/moving).

6. FAKE Religion/Big Business…Fake Government…Fake Media/Fake mind-food aka fake knowledge/fake leadership…inaccurate/insufficient misinformation/propaganda, no actual evidence, etc….a rip off… not TRUE satisfying spirituality (or leadership) leading aka setting example worthy of imitation/modeling…leading to TRUE peace (and life/longevity eternal).

“One whose appetite is satisfied turns down honey from the comb, But to the hungry, even what is bitter tastes sweet.” PRO verbs 27:7

“And I heard another voice out of heaven say: “Get out of her (fake religion), my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

7. War games/violence… a rip off… not a viable solution/resolution to conflict …”those who take up the sword… perish by the sword!”

“Then Jesus said to him: “Return your sword to its place, for all those who take up the sword will perish by the sword.” Matthew 26:52

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

(a limited list; e.g., not extensive… obviously;

I’m sure You could think of other rip-offs to add.)

Accurate Knowledge… along with proactive-POSITIVE Psychological tactics/non-combative/”spiritual” warfare…(in my POV) is like non-invasive, bloodless, precise, mind surgery… with better outcomes!… respecting the sacredness/preciousness of life!:)

“By patience a commander is won over, and a gentle (mild) tongue can break a bone.” PRO verbs 25:15

“Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold is a wise reprover to a receptive ear.” PRO verb 25:12

“A mild answer turns away rage, But a harsh word stirs up anger.” PRO verb 15:1

“If your enemy (the one hating you) is hungry, give him bread to eat; If he is thirsty, give him water to drink. For you will be heaping burning coals on his head (that is to soften the person and melt his hardness), and Jehovah (True God of Compassion) will reward you.” PRO verbs 25:22

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

PEACE Reader:)… keep up the fully-awake-wise-fine-fight:  Soldier of Compassion!:)

Is a house… truly a home without peace & compassion & agape (unselfish) love??… what about our beautiful planet Earth with all its inhabitants?! (Would You agree?…Each family member aka fellow-fragile-life has a personal responsibility to contribute/maintain/sustain home aka Earth.)

Finding Good

He that is showing insight in a matter will find good.—Prov. 16:20.

How To Stay Out Of Trouble: 5 Helpful Insights

Random ramblings about Profound …You know “pro” as in good and found as in-lol…FIND!;) Proverbs…”pro” “actions”…verb-ing/applying wisdom…(my highlights of excerpted Wisdom Is a Protection W11)

Because a person who is wise at heart tries to “find good” in a matter and ‘trusts in Jehovah.’ When we endeavor to find good in others, we are more likely to speak well of them. Rather than being harsh or confrontational, our words are sweet and persuasive. Insight into the circumstances of others helps us to understand the extent of hardship they may be experiencing and how they are coping with it.

Looking for the good…we refrain from confrontation by choosing “sweet” words…(not talking buttering someone up) just “sincerely” speaking with compassion/insight to those in sight (aka close by) and those in ear shot/word shot…(far away). When we choose kind, it makes “any” circumstance better, eh? or is butter-y…aka smooth..s things out! Sorry, (sleepy and trying (failing?) to rhyme words w/my accent..”er” becomes “A” and eh sounds like A.) Hey, Thanks! for understanding & mostly for forgiving aka not expecting MUCH from a tired blogger namely me: Y-A-W-N!!

Good Night!:)

conscientious-ness insights Joan Winifred Proverbs things i learned

standing in line

i almost drowned



waiting in line;




It just struck me today… as to… (may be)…why?

Could it… (should it) be attributed to: public school training: behavior/controlling/conditioning/teaching of little kids…remember how… kids in public school are taught to get in line; stay in line; be quiet in line; don’t talk to anybody in line; follow the line; (what’s up with all the semi-colons; joanie?!…cause I feel like it!…a looooooong pause…a semi-colon is a wait & i’m always actively waiting on something/someone and/or for someone/something; etc; including, but not limited to: divine intervention)…in line through the halls; in the cafeteria; waiting to leave class; quietly waiting your turn; etc. in school.

(We’ve been public schooled to: shut up! and wait/walk in line.)

Me: Always at the end of any/the line…usually–I happened to be the tallest girl in my age range and/or because my last name was at the end of the alphabet of the entire class…and after a while, despised that…always waiting at the end, the last kid cause not any/too many kids ever, in most of my classes, had last names after mine: w…x, y or z.

Don’t know why teachers couldn’t get/be more organizationally creative… other than keeping my classes/fellow students controlled/arranged alphabetically… last kid to get my books, papers, at back of the class…it taught me patience…and I’ve never had to be or got to be: first for/about anything…that often. (Well, am the first born in my family.)

Is it less pressure being last??…you listen; you watch; you wait; you observe; you learn from observations/those going ahead of you… till it’s: your turn…finally!

i learned to swim young… how young?…7 and under (think). Though, should confirm age…after all these years, my parents wouldn’t remember exactly either. (My Brother/Rob and moi took swimming lessons at the only public pool at Foss Park, Somerville, Massachusetts back then.)

Got dropped off…walked through the changing/locker room.. all ready–had my swimsuit on… at the end of the room heading outside to the pools was this line…so, of course, what do I do??? I get in line; the end of the line, of course.;)

Dummy me should of put 2 and 2 together that the kids in front of me looked a lot bigger/older (that this was OBVIOUSLY not the little kids/beginner’s class)…so, the line winds out and I notice hey… everybody in line eventually gets to the big pool/10 foot pool and JUMPS IN… then gets back out…this jump-in-get-out-exercise continues till it’s joanie’s turn.

Uh-huh…and there I go without ANY hesitation: I jump in WAY over my head!!!

So, I’m sinking fast to the bottom of the 10 ft. pool and looking up at the bright light and bubbles above me… lots of bubbles… wasn’t scared, not panicked nor afraid…remember thinking: HOW do i get back up there…to the top??.. it was quiet/peaceful/bubbly…

Just as I thought that… saw an arm/body approaching me…grabbing me by the back of my suit and yanking me outta the pool!

(THANK GOD for this Life Guard Guy/swimming instructor, eh?) Vaguely, remember him saying something like: you almost drown kid. Your class is over there…you’re too little for the big pool.

What did I do straight away?…went over there with the beginners…and…got in line! -lol:)

Moral of my story: Know where the line takes You…who you’re with…don’t be a quiet follower heading to your drowning/death!

Everybody walks a line… and for someone or something, eh?..(I walk it (both on and off-line) for compassion among other reasons…and I’m not quiet! I know/believe with all my heart/mind: the compassion line eventually leads to life.)

(Make sure IF you have to get in line… you know what you’re getting into or out of.)

Contrasting the ways of the inexperienced with those of the prudent, Solomon says: “Anyone inexperienced puts faith in every word, but the shrewd one considers his steps.” (Proverbs 14:15) The shrewd one is not gullible. Rather than believing everything he hears or letting others do his thinking for him, he considers his steps wisely. Gathering all available facts, he acts with knowledge. ~ excerpted: The Shrewd One Considers His Steps w 05
