Lightbulbs

What resonates with me is light and dark. 

I’m trained as an electrical engineer, so I’ve spent far too much time looking at electricity.  Did you know that electrons don’t flow through the wire?  The do “drift” and they “drift” at speeds directly proportionate to the medium they’re moving in.  However, if you flipped a switch with wire all the way to the sun and back to earth, the lightbulb on earth would turn on at the speed of light, not the drift mobility.  Why is this?  Nobody exactly knows. 

I think that it’s a manifestation of God.  It’s the flowing of power, basically instantly, in an infinite universe (and expanding…).  In some ways, the speed of light is low, when considering infinity, but as humans that is meant to teach us that our perceptions are based on a “reality” that is God based.  In other terms, God has based us in His reality, allowing us to sense His reality but in small and bite sized pieces.

I do believe, as Genesis says, God made man in His image.  I believe that means we can be, and are called to be, God.  Or in other terms God is reproducing Himself, we just have to choose Him as our Father, and Christ (His son) as our Messiah.  Choose is too light, it’s more oath and dedication… 

When you say “where there is an absence of light there is darkness!” I hear that mankind is not living up to the duty or responsibility that God gave when He breathed into each new soul; still Genesis.  That’s probably a long conversation in itself.  Regardless, each gift must be repaid.  God’s gift of life, with the option of eternal life, is invaluable.  So as Ghandi, I do mean to bring him in because his view point is correct and unique on this subject, the true measure of mankind is how they treat the most vulnerable humans.

I’m not a Ghandi fan but I wanted to bring him in because I feel it’s important to realize and appreciate each grain of truth, regardless of who brings it.  This is where Trump comes in.  He has the gifts to become God, as stated above.  Will he choose to throw the money changers out of the temple?  So far, he promised, but hasn’t delivered.

I am certain we are in for dark times.  I can’t predict too many things, but I certainly predict that Biden will bring America to our knees.  That’s where, if we’re “right” headed, we can bring God back into the conversation.  If we’re “wrong” headed, then Satan has won a battle, but not the war.  In the end God wins.

Life’s Freebies

I’m sure you’ve heard the following: “The best things in life are free! Family, friends, the beauty of a sunrise” and “Well, ya get what ya pay for…”. How can we square those two nuggets of wisdom?


The difference is our investment. You do get what you pay for in all instances. If you are given love but do not invest in growing it, then it will wilt and languish and eventually melt away like a spring snow. If you do not spend the time and energy building your family and the underpinnings of strong relationships then your family will stress and fracture, perhaps irreparably. The same goes for friendships and community. If you do not care for your health getting up to see a sunrise will not be a positive experience, it won’t be one of the “best” things in your life. In fact, poor health basically guarantees that we will not be able to be fully present in the moments when those “freebies” in life come along. Health is a multifaceted investment that pays dividends in places beyond living longer. Yes, the best things in life are free, meaning they come to us from the goodness of the Creator of the universe, however, just as we see with the “free” wisdom in Proverbs, all of these freebies need our investment to make the most of their potential.

That said, just as not all people have your best interests in mind, not all freebies are worth our time and energy, so carefully weigh their value and potential value before investing further as they could turn out to be a net loss to your health, happiness and productivity, and then you did certainly get what you paid for.

Jan 6 2021 – Reader Submitted

January 6, 2021, is a failed attempt of the left to get Trump supporters to riot and commit acts of violence. In this huge crowd of Trump supporters were infiltrators whose task it was to incite violence. They were unsuccessful. The security at the Capitol and the area was reduced to encourage violence. Trump supporters entered the Capitol because they were invited to do so by people in uniforms. Ashli Babbit was murdered, and the crime was not punished. This was the only act of violence, and it was not perpetuated by a Trump supporter, but against one. The damage done to the Capitol was not done by Trump supporters but, possibly by Antifa or BLM, and some Trump supporters actually were trying to defend the Capitol.

So, the left ran with the story as though they had been successful in getting the Trump supporters to misbehave.

To say that Trump was responsible for what happened that day is slightly true in that the people were there because they had either love or respect for the man. And also it was out of respect for Trump and in agreement with his move to Make America Great Again, that no violence could be provoked.

Had the election been fair, the rally would not have occurred. I believe that the election was fraudulent, stolen.

COVID Vaccination – Reader Submitted

“The strength or weakness of a society depends more on the level of its spiritual life than on its level of industrialization. Neither a market economy nor even general abundance constitutes the crowning achievement of human life. If a nation’s spiritual energies have been exhausted, it will not be saved from collapse by the most perfect government structure or by any industrial development. A tree with a rotten core cannot stand.” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

For the sake of the United States of America, for the sake of all mankind, and, of course for me and mine, I must act with integrity.

My perception of the forces behind the vaccination mandates is that they are evil. Certainly, Biden and Fauci have been disingenuous. As far as I can tell, my immunity to the variants that are sure to come is greatest if I had and survived the Covid. But that is irrelevant; the issue for me today is the political pressure that uses lies to make me do its bidding. I must flee that. Lies are the tools of a tyranny. As a child of God, I am rational, and have the right to decide. As a free citizen I have the responsibility to make educated decisions with the confidence that I am making the greatest contribution to the betterment of my beloved country by doing so.

It is the truth that makes us free.

COVID Vaccination – Reader Submitted

Reasons for me to get the jab
1) So Aunty will let me in her house
2) So I can go watch a movie.
3) So Fauci can make more money.

Only one reason to resist:

Freedom

I am thinking that anyone who would actually read this would need me to say no more, but maybe I need to put down more words even though more words makes my argument narrower.

I am a rational human being. Stated another way, I am a child of God. As such, I have the right before God to make the decision what I do to my body.

My perception is that the forces that push for vaccination are doing so for evil reasons. Certainly that is the case with both Biden and Fauci. The bottom line is power and money, not general well being. Because of the hype and mandates, I equate getting the vaccination with joining the forces destroying America.

I am going to stand before Christ one day and have opportunity to give account for myself. He said, “the truth will set you free.” Human history is replete with examples that a lie is the fundamental enslaving tool.

Have you tried to get the straight skinny on the efficacy of the vaccine (which isn’t even a vaccine)? Why are children being vaccinated when the developer of the vaccine encourages the opposite? If the vaccine is so safe and effective, why worry about those of us who are not vaccinated if you are? Why are mandates necessary? Why are doctors and scientists threatened if they speak out against the vaccine? Why are supporters of vaccine afraid it won’t stand up well in honest debate? Why are the medicines that effectively treat the illness obscured or maligned? This whole thing does not pass the smell test. I know I am being lied to. I do not know what the truth of the efficacy of the vaccine is. And it could be that noone does, that time will tell.

So, I don’t say, no. I say, “Hell no.”

What I understand today, the 23 day of October 2021, is that the US government’s response to the CoVid virus is an enslaving action, a power grab.

I must give account before God for what is in my mind and heart. My little body is my first order of responsibility. So, hell no. I am not altering my DNA. What happens to my little body is my first defense against the big lie — the lie that someone out there knows better for me than I do, that big government is better than an individual, that I must relinguish my rights to my mind, my stuff, and my body for the collective good —Bull shit. That is an old lie, and it is the basis of any authoritarian government, and its consequential misery, poverty and death.

The United States of America has been a light in a dark world. It has the power to keep the lights on. But increasingly it is becoming corrupted. Our president and his supporters are either inept or dishonest or both. Our judicial branch is cowardly. Our military has become distracted by the ridiculous until it is impotent. Our education system has become hijacked by the immoral. Our religious systems are AWL. The silent majority of Constitution fans, moral, honest, productive people are the last defense against the destruction of this bastian of freedom and good.

Christ’s brother, James admonished me “to keep oneself unspotted from the world”.
I think, for the reason of being in a position to help the world.

In conclusion, I want to include a few quotes from Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn:

“If I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible what was the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: ‘Men had forgotten God; that is why all this has happened.'” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

“You can resolve to live your life with integrity. Let your credo be this: Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me.” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

“You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators.” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. “One word of truth outweighs the world.

“At what point, then, should one resist? When one’s belt is taken away? When one is ordered to face into a corner? When one crosses the threshold of one’s home? An arrest consists of a series of incidental irrelevancies, of a multitude of things that do not matter, and there seems no point in arguing about one of them individually…and yet all these incidental irrelevancies taken together implacably constitute the arrest.” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

“Unlimited power in the hands of limited people always leads to cruelty.” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

“The strength or weakness of a society depends more on the level of its spiritual life than on its level of industrialization. Neither a market economy nor even general abundance constitutes the crowning achievement of human life. If a nation’s spiritual energies have been exhausted, it will not be saved from collapse by the most perfect government structure or by any industrial development. A tree with a rotten core cannot stand.” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
