Our Attitude

The Average Attitude has Changed

Do you remember in High School, we did some strange things with attitude. One instance we moved a teachers VW from the street parking 30 yd. to a place next to the building. There was no damage to the car and we even had to move it back after we told the teacher. The only reprisal “don’t tell anyone.”

Today in a parking lot, someone I do not know open their door wide enough to reach  my car next to it and dent and scrape the finished. If I thought it would change anything I would make it a project to surveil my car with the target of finding one of the careless people, driver or passenger, and confront them. What could happen from this?

My point of this is reprisals. It is the reason for ‘bad’ things that happen on purpose. There are careless people, fact. Some are careless on purpose. This is part of the cascade that is hurting our World. It has to stop. God stopped it with a flood. That did not work. The Gift of Knowledge has turned into the Curse of Knowledge.

Use The Gift to Remove The Curse!!!


The attack has begun

This is an example of a text message received on my phone. The website udsgxz.com is registered in Kuala Lumpur MY.  How are we to be protected from this invasion into our phone system?  How can we retaliate for this invasion.

Some of the recipients may actually be expecting a usps package and feel obliged to complete the address. I am not sure what damage could be done with a telephone number and address? What else will they try to get from the website interaction?


I am the Problem

And so are you

Genesis 1:31 – God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning —the sixth day.

Then Genesis 2:1-3 – Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

Let’s look at Genesis 2:7 – Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

God said in Genesis 2:16 – And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

Now this is where I feel that I am not in this story. I feel that my history is someplace else. It has taken my entire life up to now to feel that this is true. The Bible is the Word Of God. From the 4th verse of Genesis This is the History and Story of the people based on Adam. I now feel that there is a History and a Story based on another people. Not even the Peoples in this history that are not of this story’s first Man made from the dust of the ground. My History, as I feel it, merges with this in the New Testament.


Due or past due

Due and past due

Is it possible that something is both?

What is due and what is past due

It is March 2 2022.
This Bill was post on Feb 28.
The previous Bill was posted on Feb 24.
The Due Date on both Bills is March 12.
How does an obligation that is due in 2 weeks change to past due without passing the DUE Date?

I is hard to see next to the selected amount Due is $64.99, to the right it says This includes a past due amount of $64.99.
That means ?=?= The amount due in 10 days is past due before the Due Date?

I am confused. This makes no sense! WAIT. I am not confused. This makes no sense! It is either a mistake or it was done on purpose. I started many years ago as a ‘seeker of truth’. Now I seek reality because truth does not matter. In this case on March 12, truth becomes reality! Or is it reality becomes truth! again in this case it will not matter. On March 11, the Bill will be paid! And reality will change as it does every minute of every Day. Truth and Reality will not matter as they become History. And no one pays attention to History.



We all know the saying:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot changecourage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

In this ‘new normal’ I currently beginning to think my wisdom is failing. I am seeing too many things that my serenity cannot accept and my courage cannot pay the bill for.I may be referring to the last post but I think much, much more.

I worry that the one thing that is not acceptable is I see most others accepting the unacceptable.

I see smart people, elected people, saying that the laws that punish people when they break the laws is sufficient. I see no one talking about laws that dictate how laws abiding people are required to act. What has happened.

I have missed entirely when the Bill of Rights starting including the Right to disobey reasonable laws to protect people. We concentrate on what is the punishment for breaking the law which requires that law breakers must be found guilty of breaking the law before anything results from any action.

The President, Our former President

Do what ever is necessary. Yell FIRE in crowded theater. Insight a riot. Change your political party until you find one that you can control and become leader. No one will notice! I am a Republican who is been a member of every other party until he found this one that allowed him to take control. No one noticed!

Three Policemen from somewhere

Doing what they had always done, calling it a riot situation, end in killing a person at the right time to be caught. As my great grand daughter conclude for herself when she did something wrong! ‘The thing I did wrong is get caught’. They have recently been convicted and now the government will pay to keep them alive (for the rest of their lives)?

Russian President Putin

There is apparently no law about being the aggressor. There is no law about hacking electronic systems. There is no law about sending someone a bill for something that is nothing. But you become the victim is you pay your debts without verifying the bill and you may even give away information and become a victim for life? Russia sees separatist-held regions of Ukraine as not having the right to separate. Or is a group saying that another group is not owning up to their Responsibility? Is it only the responsible people that are not allowed to use force?

There is a lot of that going around this year!


My Traffic!

It is now Dangerous

Last night, on the interstate, I saw 2 reckless drivers and 1 major accident in an 80 mile trip. And I was the only driver to show any concern, at least for the recklessness. Everyone else ignored it.

I thought:
I’m glad he did not hit me.
Does he have a gun?
Is the car stollen?
Why is everyone accepting this? Does he have a Right to drive like this? Why doesn’t HE have to follow the rules? Am I my brother’s keeper? I hope he has an accident, single car accident!

What can I do?



Is not a requirement!

noun: the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven.

It is possible to go through an entire life without knowing forgiveness! That usually means this life never knows either result of the action.

noun. 1. act of forgiving; state of being forgiven. 2. disposition or willingness to forgive.

There are 2 definitions presented here. Both use ‘or’ not ‘and’. I fear this is clear and a mistake. Forgiveness is both at the same time! Where did this ‘God awful idea’ come from? Well, God!

The Lord’s Prayer – Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

and then there is.

Serenity Prayer
O God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time. Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace. Taking, as He did, the sinful world as it is, not as I would have it. Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with Him forever.
(Reinhold Niebuhr, 1892-1971)

Which has NOTHING to do with forgiveness! It seems to address acceptance instead; BUT always gets confused and co-mingled with forgiveness without even trying.

The Lord’s Prayer, from God, ties both effects together, with an ‘and’. Your request for the Deity to ‘forgive us‘ is tied directly to ‘we forgive‘ with not even a ‘;’ between. God seems to say: ‘Ask for the forgiveness; I will give it to you, unconditionally, but don’t even think of it without your participation. And it will be quantified.’. It can be said that ‘as we forgive those‘ is a promise from us to God but then why is it in the middle of a list of requests?

And now to the main point of contention. I have often hear it said ‘I cannot forgive … because I cannot accept that … and not expect it to happen again.’ Or ‘I cannot forgive … because it will happen again.’ There is a reason why I cannot forgive; it is because I cannot accept.

Let me conclude with a story, and example.

I have a puppy. It is cute. It is noisy. It is messy. I forgive the puppy. I expect the puppy to be all these things. I will not hate the puppy. I will not throw the puppy out and never love it or let it in again. I will not accept the puppy as it is. But it is forgiven for the past. I do not say that I do not expect it to be the same state tomorrow. I do not say that I will forgive the past when I know the future will be different. I prepare for tomorrow and expect tomorrow and hope for tomorrow. I forgive the past, unconditionally! FOR ME not the puppy.



Blame is the question and the answer!

assign responsibility for a fault or wrong.
“the inquiry blamed the engineer for the accident”

My entire life has been controlled by this single Idea and I never understood the reason that it is important to me and the world. In the definition above we see what it is. We need to understand why it is important.
I was awed when I realized the main word in the definition is ‘responsibility’.
I was amazed that the  second most important word is ‘assign’.
I was not impressed with the remainder of the definition; why would human being be interested in responsibility for anything except bad things?

In previous posts we looked at responsibility. Why? I felt it was so they could think more deeply about what they were about to do! Now I think it was so I could feel justified to blame a person for what was done wrongly.

  1. We have been in a pandemic from a virus blamed on the Chinese.
  2. Racism toward Blacks is blamed on Whites.
  3. Asians are blamed for anything bad.
  4. And it goes on and on and on.

Blame has become an end in itself. But in many religions it should be the beginning. What is next?

In the lord’s pray — and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. — But we haven’t yet! And that is the question and the answer!


Deep Songs

The Great Correction

Down on the corner of ruin and grace
I’m growin weary of the human race
Hold my lamp up in everyone’s face
Lookin for an honest man!
Everyone tied to the turnin wheel
Everyone hidin from the things they feel
Well the truth’s so hard it just don’t seem real
The shadow across this land
People ’round here don’t know what it means
To suffer at the hands of our american dreams
They turn their backs on the grisly scenes
Traced to the privileged sons
They got their god they got their guns
Got their armies and the chosen ones
But we ll all be burnin in the same big sun
When the great correction comes
Down through the ages lovers of the mystery
Poets and sages all throughout history
Say the light burns brightest in the darkest times
It’s the bitter end we’ve come down to
The eye of the needle that we gotta get through
But the end could be the start of something new
When the great correction comes
Down through the ages .
Down to the wire runnin’ out of time
Still got hope in this heart of mine
But the future waits on the horizon line
For our daughters and our sons
I don’t know where this train’s bound
Whole lotta people tryin to turn it around
Gonna shout til the walls come tumblin down
And the great correction comes
Don’t let me down
When the great correction comes

The definition of life has long been a challenge for scientists and philosophers, with many varied definitions put forward.[16][17][18] This is partially because life is a process, not a substance.[19][20][21] This is complicated by a lack of knowledge of the characteristics of living entities, if any, that may have developed outside of Earth.[22][23] Philosophical definitions of life have also been put forward, with similar difficulties on how to distinguish living things from the non-living.[24] Legal definitions of life have also been described and debated, though these generally focus on the decision to declare a human dead, and the legal ramifications of this decision.[25] As many as 123 definitions of life have been compiled.[26] One definition seems to be favored by NASA: “a self-sustaining chemical system capable of Darwinian evolution.”[27][28]

The lack of knowledge of the characteristics of living entities does not prevent us from assuming 1 characteristic for our basis. The process is aware. The process does respond. Any entity responds but what we mean here is the process responds. If you push a rock it moves. If you expose metal to oxygen it rusts. This is the entity not the process. The process is missing. The life is missing. When we look for life, we look for this additional response. It’s presence indicates life in some form. The problem is not seeing it does not mean absence of life, only the absence of a sighting.
