Prosperity leading to blindness


Prosperity can lead to a sense of independence
that blinds us
to how inadequate we actually are to provide for ourselves.

From Guestwriters 2015 in review

From the start in 2014, April the 26th

On 2014 April 26 we started offering a readers digest to you. We wanted to have different writers presenting their selection of most interesting articles found on the net. We regret we did not find enough people interested in co-operating to create a free lifestyle magazine where people could find uplifting stories.

We started talking about the dreams we all have or have to have, because he who beams never walks in the dark, and looked at our position in this world and how positivism should enter this world more. Our invitation to you reader to share those read articles you liked is still counting. We would love to present more interesting articles people can find on the net. For this reason we started the Reblog section in 2014, when we looked if we or you have something to say or not.

At the opening of 2016 we would like to remind you that you too are invited to share with us. You too may be sharing your words with us and many more readers. You don’t have to stay in the shadow.

At this site we want to speak about feelings and started to look at the worst feeling, the one which pulls us down. Depression is when we can’t walk in the light of life any more. Our intention is to show that each of us matter in this world and that we can get fate in our change to positiveness. You and us we all can contribute and help to create a positive attitude. You have to get the right attitude of an unstoppable success, and once more we do bring a call to help to create a positive attitude.

You may consider your own journey in life but we dared to ask which kind of attitude you want to take. In 2014, when we started we asked our readers to begin their day by living their positive attitude and in started also to point out to look at the way to come to the truth. We went in defence of it. For that, we also started looking at Who should be your closest friend.

Though we may be lonely in the crowd we wanted to build up a place where many could find each other and could overcome hurt feelings. we do not ask people to be some one else, but would love to see you smiling and with a positive attitude or positive disposition.

Perhaps what we hope for is what you hope for. In September 2014 we repeated our call to come to write for us and to share what you think interesting. A year after our question what our readers are seeking we did not receive many answers. We expressed our love to find more contributors who could show ways of fulfilling our dreams. We do hope you could find inspiration here and follow your dreams.

In 2015 finishing our first year

On the first of January we, like many others looked back at the previous year and presented our first review: 2014 in review.

Our first year we got visitors from 71 countries in all. 13 countries were added in 2015 bringing the total to 84 countries in all, with most visitors again coming from The United States (2467). Netherlands (351) & United Kingdom (341) were not far behind. Based in Belgium we only could get the attention of 181 viewers in Belgium in 2015, which is not much, but which can be caused by not many writings being in Dutch, French or German. We are pleased we also got 141 viewers from Down Under.

Knowing that we need light on our path in life, near the end of 2015 we also started placing some reflections or meditations texts, which we shall continue to do. Because we did so often got questions why we referred to some ones website article, or got requests to take some listed article out of the list of “Further reading” we shall enter less references or note lesser further readings. Normally you would think people would be pleased when there is placed a link to their site, but at several of our websites we got an other impression, hearing people not being pleased they being mentioned on one of our sites. Not being appreciated we bringing others to their writings or commenting on their writings, plus they not understanding we are helping them to get more readers and to get higher on the Google ranking, whilst we take them away from our own website, we will not any more invest so much time in looking for appropriate articles worth mentioning. Therefore in the future you will find lesser links and we shall be pleased keeping you more to our own websites.

Treats, fear and discussions in 2015

2015 was again a year were many civil rights were tread under foot. The Syrian war continued for its fourth year and brought many war refugees into Europe, a region where many do not seem to know themselves very well because kindness to others seemed to be far off. Though we are born to shine, not to fear, lots of people got over-manned by fear. At a time where there is not much knowledge of the truth, but lots of doubt and/or blindness, we tried to convince that less is still enough.

While viral moments and trends or fads, that took up lots of people their time and their Twitter feeds included viral phenomenon The Dress, pizza rat, dad bods and adult coloring books we looked at the major refugee crisis in Europe as well as numerous instances of terrorism and mass shootings. Whilst July, Caitlyn Jenner made her big debut via a sexy and scantily clad Vanity Fair cover shot…and her new reality was officially underway we also look at how we human beings manage with birth, our being and our behaviour and acceptance or not of certain situations. Bringing articles around abortion and life we were pleased to have as our 5 most active commenter  Blackhorn33 who is Comanche – Irish and a half-breed that’s Full Blooded American, who with “Our Circle of Friends” met on Google and was willing to contribute about Child Abuse -The Facts, and show the world the importance of the unborn life.

A place for a Higher Being and for His Creation

Svenska: "Stockholmsfyrens" ungefärl...

With less for more we looked at one of the major discussed issues of the year, bringing global warming and climate change at the second place and the refugees at the first place as major topics for 2015. Pointing out that it is important that we do know that we have to find the meaning of life and reach a state of peace, of old and new ideas to sustain power and to feel good by loving to be connected and worship something, we brought to the attention that we have our duties in this world and have to take our responsibility,making the right engagement in an actual two way conversation with your deities or more important to build up a good relationship with the Only One True God, the Divine Creator.

Throughout the year on this and our other sites we wanted to bring to understanding that we do have to come in a good relationship with others and with the Most High, even when we sometimes have to deal with the silence of God.

We asked not to forget that falsehood darkens the pure knowledge of God and that we should always turn to the Book of books, the Bible, to find the truth and Guidance. But to come to know the Creator and His creatures and creation, we do have to look with our eyes and to see with our heart. Some may think “God plays hide’n seek“, but He is always around us and sees everything we do.
The Almighty God above all other gods greater than all gods has given us His infallible Word, the Bible, helmet of salvation, God’s Words put in the mouth of prophets for perfecting, to reprove and correct. Searching or overlooking God’s presence more people do have to find His Word and take up that book that is Written by inspiration of God for our admonition, to whom it shall be imputed if they believe.

2015 once more showed to the world that human beings need a lot of correction. It was good to see that in France many nations also came to conclusion we have urgently to take care of mother earth. In this world were many have to learn that stuff is just stuff, it became time that man takes his position about materialistic desires.

The terrors which came over Europe should make those who call themselves Christian to think and have them remind and hear God’s voice, bringing them into the habit of dealing with God about everything.

Statistics for 2015

In 2015, there were 295 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 525 posts. On the 12th of January in total 534 articles have been published on this site. 

The busiest day of the year was October 19th with 175 views. The most popular post that day was Whoopi Goldberg commandments and abortion. But the most commented on post in 2015 was Bible, helmet of salvation, God’s Words put in the mouth of prophets for perfecting, to reprove and correct.

For 2016

We are thankful that you came along on this site and do hope to find you more than once at this and some other of our sites. We wish you all the best for 2016 and do hope you may be like a tree planted by streams of water.

Have faith in your faith…doubt your doubts and don’t throw a curtain across tomorrow… the star of its performance just may be you !

There still has to be done a lot before we shall have sustainable, green habits as a second nature, but at this site we do hope to bring incentives to work at it.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,300 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Contemplation for the month of April……Falsehood darkens the pure knowledge of God!

How many people like it to be at their ease not to worry or to think themselves, finding it easier to live by human doctrines allowing them to enjoy human traditions and be part of the majority.
How many are not blinded by such human doctrines?

“Every doctrine that is caught up with some sort of lie is enough to cast people into misfortune!
It doesn’t always have to be related to cruelty and vice.
Falsehood darkens the pure knowledge of God.
It is like dark clouds covering the sun.”

Less for more

After World War II we did not have so much at school and had to sit with three on one bench having just one book for three pupils. We never felt it as something missing. Though the Germans had first confiscated many assets of my family and the allied forces stolen and destroyed lots of things in the family houses, because the Germans had made their quarters in it, I had not to complain about shortage in my parents house. I had the blessing to be brought up in a wealthy family.

In our house we had no lack of material things, but our parents learned us to share and to respect all the personal in the house who took care of us, the maids, matrons, teachers, cooks, gardener and labourers. Though I do agree we were made clear of the difference of class and if we made friends they had first to be approved of by the pater familias, the father and boss in the house. We were brought up and formed by ideas of class systems, knowing very well the difference between the propertied, the underclasses or lower classes and higher classes.  I, myself left the path of family tradition and went a total different way, with the consequences of seeing black snow at certain moments and having to work hard and long hours to make a decent living. With no regret, because I still would choose for the profession I have enjoyed a lot.

From a lot, I came in a big less … but I did not loose much. In a certain way I think I have gained a lot. The only thing I regret most is that I still can not afford to buy our very good own family wines and I dare not to visit the castles of some cousins. But what I can see, that many families have gone far away from their previous positions of the 19th and 20th century. The 21st century has brought a lot less for most of them.

Noticeable is that we can see a lot of new rich, who have a total different mentality than my grand-grand parents, grand parents and parents. Today we also find a nivelation from the categories who were divided in the golden sixties, noticing the rich from then more ‘poverised’ and not able any more to have so much personal to keep the house(s) and ground(s). But the previous rich and great families had ethics and rules of living which by the present new rich seem to be not known.

By the young we see a lot of youngsters who love to have a lot and best all the newest things, because something having of an older version is not cool and just not done. Many eyes today are on what is presented by the glossy magazines and by the television and computer screens.

English: Amish couple shopping in Aylmer, Onta...

Lots of parents feel a pressure by the media giving them a bad feeling if they not provide enough for their kids. Many parents seem to get not only a bad feeling, but a guilty feeling. It is like their kids would be missing something & would look back at it as a sad memory. Many parents have fallen in the trap of commercialism and are going for spending a ton on things they not necessarily need and worse also on ‘things that don’t matter’ like ‘goodie bags’ people always forget to take.

Luckily we may notice some shift in behaviour by some people. It might well be some consumers become more aware of their impact on our environment.

Would it not be better if more people would come back to their senses and consider only buying those things they necessary need and those things that really can improve their quality of life?  It is good to see that there are more people who want to shift their focus and who want a simpler life.

We should be much more aware of our own impact on our environment. We also should take up our own responsibility for the protection of our own environment and for the future of our next generations. When we commit to living a simpler life, we can commit ourselves to get rid of, stop doing, and not including things that don’t bring us happiness, have a meaning in our lives, or does something positive for us. By doing so you will find out that you also shall get rid of the distractions, the noise, & the clutter in your life.

But do know simple living isn’t only about material things. As I started of, remembering the stories which filled our life, traditions which formed us, it was all about a life style of the mind, a feeling which made us to take on the required attitude. We as children had to behave decently and live according to family laws. They ordered life. And this ordering seems to be gone, because there are no laws or rules which are respected and kept by people. Most people have no religion guiding them and the laic or secular conventions have thrown over board the ethics of good and right living. Though the good living and respectful living is a frame of mind, a train of thought that requires us to examine our lives on a daily basis and eliminate things that aren’t working for us physically, mentally, & spiritually.

We should not be afraid to do shortage on our children. It is wrong to think you do short by not giving in on the new trend or new ‘revelation of the season’.  The market wants us to buy everything it can offer. The managers do want our money spend on utilities but also on things we do not really need. Our world has become build on sandcastles. The danger is that the dream and soap-bell are going to burst, not so far in future.

The youngsters today got chained by their i-phones, i-pads, beatiful cars which can ride much faster than is allowed, think they have much choice in the shops and eating places, but have no eye for the real quality of the goods. They became blinded by and for many things.

It is up to their parents, grand parents and their real friends to open their eyes again and to bring them to understand that we are better only to buy those things which were made by people who were fairly paid and were no damage was done to either animal, plant, man or the environment (water and air). We all should come to respect nature much more and should also to come to respect those who make all those things. what I notice today, is that there is no respect at all any more for those who do the dirty work. And that is where our society has gone wrong.

They all were envying the place of some in our society, who had grounds and houses and who gave work at people. They all nurtured people in government to enrich themselves. Now we are facing greedy governments which charge taxes, which make labour to expensive and contribute to less people at work and less people able to make themselves a proper living. The greed of some made the economical world to collapse. And the protective hands of those in parliament, made that it even could happen that those who mocked up the system got bonuses. And nobody seem to have cared, because they were all so busy with themselves only looking at themselves, only concerned about themselves.

The egoism with the want for more has taken mankind and made them to shut their eyes for realism and for the truth of natural laws and ecological matters. As such they all started to poison themselves (literally). The more is giving them less in the end.

Whilst the world should know that there are better options. We do not have to go to find our food miles and miles away from where we live. We do not have to find cheap labour to soothe our mind not having slaves working for us. We do not need slaves and we do not need to be independent on other continents. If we really take care we can provide enough for each of us in our own environment, not damaging our and others their environment.

We can see a lot of literal and figurative bulimia. It is time that we come to consume less and take at heart:

“Less is more”

Falling in Love’ as Temporary Insanity.

Love may be like a form of insanity, but for sure it will be a pleasant one and a toxic one. Nothing can build up or create so many things than love, be it love for a job or for a person. Without love for a person the ‘I’ is left behind to become a ‘Me’, forgetting how more important it would be to have more ‘We’ in this world. Without love not only the world would become a place of selfish people, only interested in themselves, but also not willing to take care of others around them and as such abandoning the world around him or her.

Love is that what can be deep in us but gives a radiation seen far out of us. That radiation also becomes more toxic or contaminating others. This infectious situation is necessary for humankind to bring catching moments which can enlighten life of many.

Love is the sweetest butter life can bring. The clotted cream to have the scones of life the best to keep us going.

+
Remember

Love is:

  • not ignoring details in her profile
  • seeing warning signs
  • not lying
  • not becoming blinded
  • to make us possessed by an alien force taking over our hearts
  • spontaneous love-reactions pulling together not into a whirlpool of hopeless, uncontrollable, overwhelming passion
  • Romantic love may be blind at first, but may not stay blind
  • emotion, taking place inside our own skins
  • being authentic and genuine
  • true love should be completely unconditional
  • love is given completely without any conditions attached
  • full of forgiveness for any and all transgressions or slights can be reasonably expected at all times, and without question
  • there have to be boundaries in order for two people to exist healthily in a reciprocal and loving partnership
  • bringing up patience or understanding for each other
  • not falling in love with illusions
  • love is daring to take risks

  • Temporary Insanity (dunhillgrd2013.wordpress.com)
    Legally speaking, temporary insanity is used in criminal prosecution, a defense by the accused that he/she was briefly insane at the time the crime was committed and therefore was incapable of knowing the nature of his/her alleged criminal act. One difficulty however with a temporary insanity defense is the problem of proof.
  • Diagnosis – Temporary Insanity (yourspiritualtruth.com)
    As we are deep in the midst of these crazy earth changes and working our way toward ascension, resurrection, self-actualization, a new world order, or whatever you want to call it, there is an important lesson for all of us to be mindful of…..the insanity we are currently feeling is only temporary and Not our original, or even, our default nature.

  • Sane Adaptations to Insane Circumstances (clarissasblog.com)
    are we not paying the price of hopelessness? In other words, psychiatry is saying “there is something fundamentally wrong about you and the way you have been wired over which you have no control. Your problems are not sane adaptations to insane circumstances, but rather these symptoms indicate that your brain is broken.”
  • What is your definition of insanity? (onlifeandhope.com)
    Some insanity is good. Taking a risk may well be seen as crazy to some, but if you don’t try when all else has failed, then all is certainly lost. However, when we repeatedly risk our wellbeing and that of other’s this insanity is harmful.
  • Why You Are Insane If You Think GMOs Are Safe (thesleuthjournal.com)
    you are insane if you believe that ingesting Roundup contaminated food is safe, especially if you let your children consume it. In a world where Department of Children and Families can threaten to take your children away if you don’t pump up to 80 vaccines into them as children, knowingly letting your child eat food poisoned with glyphosate formulations, which have been linked to over 40 diseases in the peer-reviewed biomedical literature – should be considered at least as an egregious offense

  • I hate my feelings. (thiscrazywriter.wordpress.com)
    People assume I always like a loss of inhibition. As if it’s fun being consistently insane, speedy, out-of-control. Of course it can be fun sometimes. Of course it’s an advantage sometimes. But it’s really not. Euphoric doesn’t mean happy, I’ve realized. Happiness is controlled. Happiness knows when to stop; it’s rational. Euphoria isn’t. Euphoria will seduce you right off a cliff. Euphoria will change who you are. It will keep you up at night, eat away at your inhibitions and self-control, and make you do things that you regret later. Euphoria makes you angry, arrogant, irritated, and moody. It makes you dizzy. You can’t stop euphoria. It’s delectable, tantalizing, and destructive.

“Prayer 2” – Child Abuse

Being in the teens and having to been confronted with such ‘abhorrence’ should be avoided.
That is why such a prayer shall need to be held in our minds still for years to come, until we may see an end on this present world-system.

At the moment many shall still have to be patient and should have the courage to come out the darkness covering this sun not letting them bring it in blindness. We all should help others to see light in the dark and bring faith in their souls.

  • A Screwtape Letter on Prayer (concordiakoinonia.com)
    Whenever they are attending to the Enemy Himself we are defeated, but there are ways of preventing them from doing so. The simplest is to turn their gaze away from Him towards themselves. Keep them watching their own minds and trying to produce feelings there by the action of their own wills. When they meant to ask Him for charity, let them, instead, start trying to manufacture charitable feelings for themselves and not notice that this is what they are doing. When they meant to pray for courage, let them really be trying to feel brave. When they say they are praying for forgiveness, let them be trying to feel forgiven. Teach them to estimate the value of each prayer by their success in producing the desired feeling; and never let them suspect how much success or failure of that kind depends on whether they are well or ill, fresh or tired, at the moment.
  • The Light of Christ Breaks Through the Darkness When we Pray. (csahm.com)
    Sometimes it takes darkness to realize how much we need prayer in our lives. I learned this lesson during the lowest of lows in my own life. It was springtime in 1997. It should’ve been a happy season for me as I had recently given birth to my second child, a son. But instead of feeling joy, I had an overwhelming sense of despair that I couldn’t shake off without a true, divine intervention.
  • Little Springtime Prayer by Helen Rice (snowwhitedove.wordpress.com)
    For how can man feel any fear or doubt 
    When on every side all around and about
    The March winds blow across a man’s face
    And whisper of God’s power and grace?
    Oh, give us faith to believe again
    That peace on earth, good will to men
    Will follow this winter of man’s mind
    And awaken his heart and make him kind…
  • A Prayer A Day – 4/10/2014 It’s All His and He’s Got You! (dailyprayerprayertogod.wordpress.com)
    When we pray and ask the Lord to give us His kind of faith.  When we pray and ask the Lord to give us determination to live a life that is pleasing and holy to Him.  When we pray and ask the Lord to keep us on the path of righteousness and holiness.   When we pray and say to the Lord, “Lord I want to fulfill my purpose and my destiny in you”.   We better get ourselves prepared for the shaking that will take place to remove all the dead things from our lives.  We better get ourselves prepared for the shaking that will take place to cause us to stand upright.  We better get ourselves prepared for the shaking that will take place to get everything lined up in our lives to do the will of the Father.
  • On Soft, Tender Knees: A-to-Z Blog Challenge (gurrlontherise.wordpress.com)
    I cast my eyes downward,
    unwilling to see Your magnificent
    presence,
    for shame riddles my body,
    and the devil
    whispers his wants to me,
    taunts my weaknesses,
    tells me You could never love me
    now that I’m
    stained.
  • Prayer (barelyherenorthere.wordpress.com)
    Grant me the patience to see things through, to wait it out, to count to ten.
  • Italy’s bishops pass Vatican-backed rule that child molestation does not have to be reported (sott.net)

Grant me the courage to say no, to say yes and follow through ’til the end.

Grant me love so that I may care and so that I may see and that I may do.

Grant me sleep, deep and joyful, and honest, with dreams that may come true.

Dear God…

 

Please help this wretched soul.  She feels so empty, so sad…

She things she is worthless being, who only has the power to hurt the people she loves.

She is so afraid and lonely.

She has no one to turn to because she chooses to distance herself from people.

She is afraid to let anyone get too close, because then she’ll care, 

And soon or later she’ll hurt the person, or she’ll get hurt…

And soon or later they all leave…

 

She cannot stand the pain.  

The pain comes suddenly to her heart, stabbing, twisting, digging in deeper.

Such pain… such misery…

The pain won’t let her breathe.  The pain stops her heart from beating.

She struggles in the blackest sea, to keep her head above water.  

She screams for help but nothing but the freezing water answer…

sinking world….

So many people may feel betrayed by this life, or by the life their parents presented them. We can find many people who have been wounded by the people around them and by the traps they fell into.

.

Many have lost hope in the One Whom they call From Above. But they forget He is and always shall be with them. But He knows, because humankind doubted His right to rule, that His Light shall be able to shine in the darkness and to touch some feeble souls. Those who are willing to look for Him shall be able to find Him.

  • life in Jehovah Jireh (patrickjnrchitengi.wordpress.com)
    for those who love him Joy comes in the morning,
    Life too precious to spend mourning
    Be wise because the devil is always coning
    Jehovah wil never fail you and will keep you grace sustaining.
    He is love and he is never blind
    He sight and will forever more guide
    He is saviour and again he is judge
  • Who Is Our Ruler? (researchsupportsthetruth.wordpress.com)
    Can you imagine millions of people not knowing the name of the ruler of their country?Yet, strangely, there are millions who do not know the name of the Ruler of the universe!

    Since it is a life or death matter to know the supreme Sovereign, the following article is of vital importance to you.

    THE name Jehovah is the grandest name in all the universe. It is the self-given name of the Creator. It is the name of the only true and living God.

    The time is soon coming when every creature that lives must know and worship Jehovah.

  • Dear Longing (subhradeep05.wordpress.com)
    And one day, you will let go of me.The world will move on,

    Time will move on,

    You will move on.

    But I will stop.

  • And Jehovah Kept Sending His Messengers The Prophets (aristarchus144000.wordpress.com)
    The Biblical narrative shows that they were being punished because they had rebelled against Jehovah God and had broken the covenant they had taken with Him. They had a history of this display of conduct repeatedly over time.

    Today modern-day “Jerusalem” is under attack; being besieged from every side. But not as a result of persecution for its true Christian devotion. No, but as a result of God’s punishment for its transgressions. If you read the Bible book of Ezekiel, you can get a true view of the state of the condition of the Christian congregation today.
  • Colour my world (poetryjoy.com)
    There are days when all feels dark and dismal.Clouds hang heavy and hearts sink low.

    Drained of all energy or brightness.

    We long for colour and vitality.

  • Fright Persons . . . (alreadyanswered.org)
    For it is said, that when that due time, or appointed time comes, their foot shall slide. Then they shall be left to fall, as they are inclined by their own weight. God will not hold them up in these slippery places any longer, but will let them go; and then at that very instant, they shall fall into destruction; as he that stands on such slippery declining ground, on the edge of a pit, he cannot stand alone, when he is let go he immediately falls and is lost.
  • The Sinking Boat (inasessa.wordpress.com)
    In a moment of death, she was offered a chance to live;
    Colors of distant island flashed to her withered eyes
    Lighted beneath the moon’s pale beams,
    She dreamed of wings to fly, in another chance did believe,
    Found nothing, but her shivering feeble arms.
  • Die Alone (sophiebowns.wordpress.com)
    I lie alone in darkness; do I appear the same?Have I died or slipped away, is my soul in the in-between?

    Must I cling onto life, so my actions can be redeemed?

    Whose voice is there in the shadows, is it someone that I know?

  • Soul Conversation (helpineedajob.wordpress.com)
    I ignored the flicker of magic, the colour that gathered around people, that pulsed and waned, sometimes pure, sometimes terrifyingly dark. Why believe in something I could barely see? Something that no-one else could see?I ignored it.
  • Choose me. (kathrynlchristopher.wordpress.com)Enhanced by Zemanta
    Salt water,Honey;

    “Come here” under your breath.

    The redness of the inside,

    flesh, warmth,

    Wetness;

    Bare feet sinking into a riverbed.
