Argument: The seed is the self
ďThe seed was in itselfĒ; which means that the seed is in the self. God puts the seed of greatness inside of us. God created us with the desire to do great things. The seed is the self, you have to deny the self to find God because the seed is what God puts inside of you and when it is not developed, it becomes wicked. Wickedness is a failure, a dead end or a plateau in the development of the seed; this happen when we miss our marks. Why our seed stops growing? Our seed stops growing when we miss our marks, when we donít exercise the choices that God places before us. We fail to make the choices that God places before us because we get too complacent, when we get into a life of routine, when we allow our dreams to be overrun by routines, we become too sluggish, too rigid to flow with the spirit of God. The Holy Spirit of God has to come inside of us to stir up the dream that God puts inside of us. God puts that seed inside of us, this seed of righteousness, this seed of justice that is suppose to impact the world, however we have to be fluid, flexible for the Holy Spirit of God to move in us. We have to stop living by routines; they make us too heavy, not quick enough to react to the choices that God places before us. Our dream is always about the choices that God wants us to make and if we are too rigid to make those choices or too heavy to make the right choices, we miss our marks. The seed is dormant inside of us until the Holy Spirit of God synergizes us; stir up the seed of greatness inside of us. The Holy Spirit of God is the one who synergizes the seed that is dormant inside of us. We need to know what is our gift, what is our talent and find out what we are good at and then let our passion interacts with our gifts and talent so that we may know what God calls us to do, what He assigned us to do in this world.
God created you to impact the world in whatever sphere He assigned you to be, find your sphere, follow your calling and you will find God. ďFind that which is essential and become it Ē. Find what you are the best at, what you are passionate about; this is your calling from God. At one point in our development we inevitably come to a dead end or a plateau where we stop growing, this is the point when God Himself has to intervene in our lives to minister a change. This point of intersection is called a breaking point. This breaking point happens in the flow of time when the forces that restrain us and keeping us behind intersect the forces that propel us and moving us forward. This point of intersection is usually a point of great upheaval, when the winds of change are blowing and moving us forward. The antithesis of this system of things, the reasons why this system must go is this: ďEvery human being wants to be treated equally; no one wants to feel inferior to anyone elseĒ; this system wants to make it otherwise. This system wants to favor some and denies others, affirmed some ad negate others. Everything that is attainable in this world should belong to a privilege few; the world of
Attainment belongs to the one group. Contrary to what God intended; God wants us to embrace our humanity, that is to be the Good Samaritan, give to those in need, treat others as we would like them to treat us, forgive as many times as necessary, put our egos aside, lead by example, etc. Jesus said that He is the way and the life; the life style He prescribed for us is the way to quicken us, make us fluid and flexible so that we may be able to respond to the prompting of the Holy Spirit of God. To achieve perfection in life, to fulfill the dreams that God puts in our hearts, w must have the Holly Spirit of God to work with us. To find the spirit of God, to flow with the spirit of God we have to be fluid enough, quick enough to respond to the demands of the spirit of God. The only way God gave us to find Him is in the way we live, the lifestyle we chose to live. This lifestyle can be found in the precepts that Jesus Christ left for us. They are simple as in treating others as you would like others to treat us, be the Good Samaritan, help those in need, turn the other cheek that is we must seek alternatives to resolves our conflicts, forgive as many times as necessary, put our ego aside and let God Guide us in everything we do. Trust God to find a way for you, donít worry sick about your needs, and just trust God. Follow your passion, follow your gift, let God guide you, live the life style prescribed by Jesus, with these two approaches you can literally get even with anyone who is trying to put you down, cut you off of your possibilities in this world; you can close the gap that separate you and them, overcome the disparities that separate you and them.
Why we miss our mark and fail, why some of us are left behind?
It is all about the choices that we make in the face of the impossible odds against us, trusting that God will lead us through. The hardest thing that we have to do in life is to face our enemy; and this enemy is ourselves. There is only one enemy and that enemy is the self, the ego. We have one arch enemy and that enemy is the ego we inherit from the devil that gives us our false sense of identity. This world is full of people that are left behind; because they would rather face death than face themselves. Today we have a bunch of cowards that decide to redeem themselves by killing themselves and others rather than facing themselves. They are not fooling God; it takes greater courage to face ourselves, doing the choices that God put before us than facing death. Psychologists say that the fear of snake is the greatest fear, even greater than the fear of death in some people. The fear of snake is innate and universal in all culture; this is not without foundation. The snake represents the self, the ego this is why some of us rather face death than facing ourselves. So instead of facing ourselves we decide to play ball off the field where it does not count. God will not change for us; we must change to meet God.
Who are they:
A thorn on our side is what they are?
They are a thorn on our side; this is what they are. We are fighting two wars to help them develop; help them catch up with civilization. We spent trillions of dollars to finance our homeland security because of them and add countless of restrictions to our lives that reduce our freedom and our way of life, our finances. (Our ability to make money). We have done all of that because of them simply because they are stuck in a state of arrested development. They did not make the grade; they are far behind. This is what happened when the seed of greatness that God placed inside of us stop developing; it becomes wicked. They are wicked because of their obsession; they are obsessed in getting rid of us. They believe that we are responsible for their condition, or we want to change their way of life.
We need to make them accountable for their condition; we need to make these governments accountable for the actions of their citizen. Ben Laden is responsible for increasing our expenses after 911, raising our debt ceiling, forced us into the two wars that we are fighting and countless of restrictions to secure our borders that are costing us money; they have to be accountable to educate their own citizen, help them develop. We need to persuade them to do so and show them that it is in their interest as well to help their citizen develop the seed of greatness that God placed inside of them.
Catch the future before it arrives:
Eventually we have to make these governments accountable for the actions of their citizen. Since 911 this country has spent more of its resources in security which caused our debt ceiling to rise up almost to the same level of our GDP. We cannot sustain this trend. Governments in the Middle East and South Asia, Governments in country like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc., have to get involve in reversing the trend, instead of majoring in death and destruction they should engage their citizen in developing the seed of greatness that God placed inside of them. Instead of their citizen using their gifts, their talents, their ability to devise ways to destroy, killing themselves and killing others, they should use their gifts instead to improve lives, improve their living condition, and make the planet a better place to live. They should not waste their time destroying the West that they so heavily rely on for technology to improve their lives. I think that it is a win, win situation for them, for their safety and longevity if they start engaging their people in developing the seed of greatness that God placed inside of them. It is a well known fact that when the seed of greatness that God placed inside of people stops developing, it becomes wicked; it becomes the seed of wickedness.
This trend will continue unless governments of these countries take it upon themselves to deliberately tackle this issue as a problem, seeking death and destruction is a sign of a seed that failed to develop. They are getting comfortable using death as an option because they are desperate, they see no way out; they donít know that they have another option to develop the seed of greatness inside of them.
Is Haiti a goat nation?
There is such thing as goat nations the bible says, believe it. There are nations that are goat nations where there people are ruthless and stiff necked, not easily manageable. They are not self regulated, self disciplined; in all they are not civilized. They donít yet have the inner temperance to practice democratic principles. There are countless nations that fall in that category and there are some of them today that we can also trace back to a time when they were considered goat nations. China for example was in that category; there were countless warlords at one time running China before Mao Zedong took over, each wanted their own kingdom.
They needed a strong and progressive leader to guide them out of their condition. Today China is a manageable country. I donít know if they have improved enough as a people to be on their own, self regulated; they may still need a strong hand. They are gradually making the transition and now they can live somewhat under a democratic government. Democracy is not self imposed, the people need to govern themselves, a government of the people by the people and for the people. Haiti is in the same category; I donít know if they are ready to live under a democratic government. They are slowly making the transition. They need to learn and that requires time; time is not a luxury they have. Circumstances will not wait for them to learn. Death is pressing them on every corner, they cannot afford to stay lax as they use to and wait for time to change things. What is the fundamental reason why some countries fall under the goat nation category? I think the reason is that collectively the people have not reached the level where their consciousness can tap in the higher realm for aspiration; they are still stuck at the lover levels of human needs. It is a catch twenty two situation where they cannot free themselves to reach the higher realm where they can find inspiration to solve their problems and are still getting stuck at the lower levels they cannot improve their living condition either.
