IF I HAD MISSED THE PAIN I WOULD HAVE MISSED THE DANCE.

19 Dec

CHAPTER 56
Dr. Emil Rioux Counseling Services good day sir how are you how can I help you? Arthur Joseph Legette, I am your 10 O’clock appointment.
Yes, Joseph is it all right if we start on a first name basis. Now I will listen to your story and will formulate a plan after this early hour. Every Dr. has a unique way of counselling according to their outlook on life.
Joseph starts his story, now I joined a comedy club called the Green Door Comedy club, and most of their one-up-man-ship happened in the green room where most of their humour is canned. Now I started to volunteer I was a spry 76 years old man very energetic for my age and able to walk several miles a day. I volunteered to hand out free tickets every day I walked around this small town known as High River, Alta. I handed out promotion free tickets, and I also handed out cards inviting companies to register for free comedy nights at the club for their employee’s. I did this for six months and helped the owner get her through the summer.
Dr. Rioux good introduction now gets to your circumstances.
Joseph well everything was going fine until she invited comics from Lethbridge and they came in on Friday night for open mike. Then one man latched on to me, a Homophobic bully and coward started to pick on me incessantly with these sexual barbs. I tried to adjust I believed I could do so.
Now I could not I had been warned by my intuition that this was not the place for me. Now, this was an acid environment which it would have been better to stay away from. My hunch kept telling me this was not the environment for me I overlooked it and disregarded it. I ploughed on, and after four months my health started to break down. Where I could walk 3 to four miles, I could now not walk six blocks.
Now I was unaware that he was hitting old wounds in my unconscious mind as he said to me would you like to see my dick? Now, this did not register right away, but it did later because what came to mind when I was seven years old my sixteen-year-older brother said get out of here you little gay blade you want to see my dick don’t you? I am sure that the scar on this old hurt was scraped off by these remark by the comic.
Then my brother around the same time when I was 7, he said if you do not get away, I am going to make you lick my boots. Now we lived on a ¾ section of land we were farmers. I taught he was kidding, but he was not he grabs me I fought, but I was forced to kiss his boot. There were many instances of his bullying. I was shocked as I got excited in my groin from this. I would not dare push this further because anything below the belt in religion is the sin. So, I fought these urges all my life. Another time he said to the next older brother they were urinating. He said we would piss on you and make you smell like a man. Now, this was one of his favourite expression and used it all the time. I do not believe that self-abuse is a sin only a very controlling factor on religious parts.

Now all these stories started playing them-selves around in my head I did not become aware of them until my health started deteriorating my eyes were always tearing up and getting very irritated. Now I have Dry Eye Syndrome and need many eye-washes. Then my ears started to plug up and then where I could walk several miles every day. Now I was lucky to close to the end of the six months if I could walk three blocks without pain.
Now this comic was flinging these Homosexual barbs and harassment as often as he could. The laugh was always at my expense. Then one day I was walking out in the hallway from the bathroom to the club main functional room. Now I said to these two comics that I was a born-again virgin and one said well you got your 15-year-old vagina back.  Now, this implied in my mind that I was a woman and not a man.
The second real problematic jest at least he called it a prank. Was Joseph thinks my son is handsome so I will have to keep him away from Joseph? I could take it a no different way than he was joking about and accusing me of being a pedophile. Then I entered the green room, and I said if we are going to have a Comic Roast we should be judged by our peers. Now this comic said hey Joseph thinks he can be a judge.
Now I had told the owner that this would not work and my greatest fear came to fruition I, was rebuffed when I was shunned and told not to go to the club for two weeks.
I was now totally aware of where my health problems lied. My immune system had kicked into high gear trying to combat a mental anomaly and treating it like a virus or flu bug. The body was taking calcium from my bones because I had run out of Calcium for about three months — one of the functions of calcium which works better as follows in Intra Calcium formula which is a combination of calcium orotate and magnesium orotate, two vital nutrients that support healthy teeth and bones, the nervous system, and cardiovascular health.
Now I was depleted and did not have enough calcium to counteract my immune system stealing calcium from my bones this brought about my joint pain because it takes the calcium from the cartilage area of the bones it is easily accessible, and these are usually places that received injury in the past are the most acceptable or easily accessed. In these weak spots, the calcium easily extracted.
Now I discovered that old wounds were being opened up and attacked and the scabs removed and rub to the rough. Now I should have never been part of this environment. Now we have destinies preferred will for us and we have destinies allowed will. Now fate would want us to answer our intuition by listening and acting rather than reacting. Now, This was the granted will I had to go through this ordeal, and if I had not gone through the pain, I would have missed the dance.
I brought it to the owner, and she said well I would have to stay away from the club for two weeks because Lethbridge will be here and I cannot have my comics walking around on eggshell. It did not matter to her that she had a homophobic taught himself funny on board. He was not only that but the homophobic sexual predator and a coward who loved to push buttons over and over again. Is it quite uncanny when they see a scab and start irritating it? Is it quite incredible when they see an opening to alter the skin and start annoying it? I let him see buttons he could drive and he pushed them every time he was in the club. He assumed a thing about me that I did not even know. Why I ask Is not one-up-man-ship humour or comedy? If it then it is the destruction of character and slander of same.
Dr. Now this reminds me of this particular occurrence on the farm that the chickens will peck a chicken to death just on a whim. Now if this hen is not salvaged and put into a second pen, she will be killed. When she is separated, she can never be put back in the pen because they would kill her. Human nature is no different. Now like the chicken put into a different enclosure to prevent her death, comedy I am placed in a position where I can never go back into the comedy club.
Now, when you mix to batches of new chickens, you will have problems because this is starting of a pecking order and these chickens will search one of the leaders out and peck it to death. If taken from the pen and recovers, she cannot be placed in the enclosure again. Now This is because the bullies would not stop their pecking it would just get more pronounced and hateful and destructive. Now, this is why I cannot go back to the club. My weaknesses have been disclosed, and there is too much hate mongering on this earth.
I have had something that I love taken away from me only because a club owner would instead get rid of the old dog who is trying to swim upstream among a bunch of Piranhas.
Dr. Emile Rioux now I am going to tell you a story that happened. Now this story is so you can think about what went on in your life there.
The story of two rainbows! I was on an outing with this young fellow we were travelling towards Kristina Lake. Before you enter Kristina, Lake there is the cut off for the USA border. On your right and there is a picturesque waterfall. He suggested that we stop and climb to the top of the rocky side. We sat down, and he said to me there are two rainbows. I said no there is only one. He said no look there are two. I asked all right where is red on the first one he said at the top. I said where is the red on the second. He said at the bottom. I said why is that? He said I do not know. I meant to think a bit on this it might come. He said why it is you tells me. Now many people are lazy and want everything handed to them.
Dr. E. Rioux said the mist is serving two purposes. The water is causing a rainbow, and it also serves as a mirror. Now the second rainbow is the mirror image of the first rainbow. Now which one would you say is the original and which is the mirror image. He said I do not know.
Now I will explain it to you. Now the one with the red at the top is the original, and the one with the red at the bottom is the mirror image. I said do you know how I know? I said, A mirror always gives a reverse picture. That is why in a mirror if you have a name tag it is backward. So, in gossip and homophobic sexual bullying, the accuser sees himself in the mirror of life. His homophobic fears are occurring because he is so deep in his fag confinement that he can not see himself. Never the less it is himself looking at self. There are many similar clichés in play like when you point the finger at someone else three points back at you.
Now I have a lesson for you here whenever you judge someone else it is always the mirror image of yourself. We still see our person, when we accuse because unless we have the gift of discernment. It is your problem reflecting on you. Judge not, that you judged. For with what judgment you decide, you shall judge: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Now I have another quote – Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your eye? Now I will explain this quote you know when you are in an old abandoned building full of dust, and you stir up this earth a beam of dust mites climbs to the top of the windowed sunlight. Now there are many specks of dust in the ray of dusty sunshine. Now, why do you try to remove one speck of dust from your brothers’ eye when you have the whole shaft of dirt in your own. It is not talking about a two by four beam it is talking about a dust beam of mites.
Dr. Joseph, I have a few questions for you. First, do you hate sex?
Joseph, I guess I do because I have always been a poor lover a slam-bang thanks you man type of lover.
Dr. Joseph do you hate men? Joseph yes especially the male chauvinistic pig who is governed by his libido. The male bully of his wife and children, the alcoholic that blames his addiction on everybody else.
Dr. Joseph do you hate women? Joseph, no I love to visit with them walk with them on my arms and sit and have long intelligent conversations. Now there are very few men who you can talk on an original base.
Dr. Joseph in my analogy of you I can honestly say you are not a homosexual, you are an Asexual which means you do not want sex you want comrades and friendship without the responsibility to be sexual.
Dr. Joseph take this mantra or make one up for yourself. Now, why would I want to be you, why would I neglect me? When will I live to my full potential and be me, Forgetting the doubters who only criticize, when will I be me and just me, yes when will I? Remember there is nobody like you, and never will be, moreover, do not forget to be you and only you, ignore detractors, remember you are the only one who can create you. It would help if you did not allow the influence of any kind. However, if you change to please, you are not changing for your good.
Now why would I want to be you, and neglect me, why would I sacrifice my uniqueness to appease you, When I know, there is nobody like me, and can never be, when will I live to my full potential, neglect-ing critics? Your opinion of me is none of my business.
Dr. Now, Joseph, you have to manufacture a mantra for you it has to be your brain wave or storm, and it must come to you as a brainwave.
Dr.  Joseph, I cannot emphasize this enough. Now everything happens for a purpose in our lives — the hate that is prevalent in the world today. I have hated yes, but it is that I hate racist and I hate all the following. I also hate the womanizing man who believes he is god’s gift to women. I hate the one-up-man-ship comic who thinks that everything that comes out of his mouth is funny. I detest the man who would destroy anything that he or sees as threatening they destroy. It is not part of their consciousness but an unconscious desire because it is something, they know they will never have. Now we do not have because we do not believe we can have it. Now if we could find it in our self, there is nothing that is out of reach.
Dr. Joseph this is a toxic environment for you, and you have been operating against your character. Your intuition tried to tell you that, but you overrode it and just blasted on. You had two obstacles in your way the age difference known as the generation gap. And the second was because of this they were not readily willing to accept you as one of their peers, and this is understandable.
We have a society that should and could benefit from the seniors in their life put them away into extended care homes. Now when the young see someone who does not fit their norms of what they perceive as usual their unconscious mind tries to destroy.
Yes, there is communication between the spirit or souls in humans. Our unconscious mind can discern what’s in the unconscious mind or of another soul. Now, this is spirits communing with spirits or energy seeking its level. Power has no boundaries not subject to the restriction of walls.
So, I am repeating and when we see something in another person is because it is so prevalent in the self. So, when we point the finger at someone else, there are three leading back at us. Yes, if we only understood this principle, we would be less accusative.
Now, our unconscious mind is our accuser it does not know the difference between what is right and what is false. If we are not careful, it will lie to us on a regular basis. So, what we accuse another even in humour is pointing back at us.
One other thing that I hate is homophobic and every man who does not see things as they see it is a “fag.” Now, when people do that it is because they and their point of view are the only ones that count, and is a side effect of religious brainwashing and the inability to think for themselves.
We have nobody to blame, but ourselves now bullies come in all forms, and you find them in every walk of life be it simple comedy groups someone places himself in the bully mode. They think it is funny yes, a laughable matter.
Nothing but nothing happens in your life capriciously. Joseph, we attract everything that occurs in our lives there is something in your soul that was not completed and issues that are almost as old as you not settled. Now, this is why Paul said to count it all joy when you have trials. If you laugh through the tests, they last less long. Because when you cry you cry alone and when you laugh many laughed with you and some are laughing at you. Now think no matter what you served a unique purpose brought laughter to the crowds. Hate will not take away the pain only love and forgiveness.
I have come to the end of this chapter of my life I was meant to be here. Now It was not expected to be lasting to it was just a stopover in the storm. I am relinquishing all hate all fear, and all the grudges that I taught were warranted. I was hurt, but I had to be led through this hurt because the Universe Had a Greater Job to do.
Hate is not easy to conquer, but we must rise above hate. Count the whole world lost if we cannot overcome for; we have too much hate. Now If we do not conquer this hate we are supposed to repeat history. Now I believe that my souls’ agenda nourished and I must follow my stint with the Green Door Comedy club is over. Now you can bring all your hold on me, and leave me I have healed. You have won all the fault mine because there can be no other solution or anything different. I was motivated by hate, fear, gossip, revenge, hatred mongering. I have risen above it, and I am healed. I can walk a good 2 miles without pain. Thank you, creator, for the pain because without it I would have missed the dance. I could never go back, and that’s is alright I been there done that and it has been a nice trip.

COUNSELING HOW RELEVENT IS IT TODAY

COUNSELING HOW RELEVANT IS IT TODAY

WHAT IS THAT IN TODAYS WORLD?
By: Paul D. Hudon
Contact: phudon77@gmail.com – 1-250-921-5502
We have many people who put themselves out there as guidance counselors, or psychologist, or even psychiatrist, who do not have any knowledge about counseling. They asked the question but are unable to fathom the source of the answer. Their understanding of the human mind is all from books, memorized facts that are no longer in evidence as truth. They live in a box if the experts; quote or unquote say this, they never question.
One must have almost a soul-mate relationship with the person, you counsel. You must have love and apathy for his or her feelings and read them well by asking the right questions. Even with this candid ability you must ponder and think about what the person is saying, and put a question or two for comprehensibility.
There is no room for any sign of hate toward your patients’, or displaying denigrating comments of his or her character. Destroying the ego will not cure anybody of anything, now to build up a person you must show him or her SELF-WORTH.
Now the psychiatrist relies mostly on drugs to treat the cause. They have no counseling skills, and in most cases, their patients’ are only targets to practice different medication on with no knowledge of what is happening in the body. Many of their patients’ are subject to many medications changed on a whim, with really no actual knowledge of its value to the patients.’ They have very few skill on one on one counseling. The drugs are not a healing balm. It is only a bandage that does not fix the problem. Now all too many times the side effects are more dangerous, than in the belief of its cures. Now many times it compounds the problem and the patients’ shows no improvement. The symptoms are often more the accumulation of the problem, and what was to be a healing balm, is a fallacy and a big sham.
Now I was in a community that was a mecca, and a haven for mental patients’ and many showed no sign of any improvement, if there somewhat ordered and organized before, they became sloven and unkempt. I walked through quite a few homes and found all kinds of garbage and dirty clothes all over the floor of every room. There was no evidence of any laundering. The people, because they were so drugged up, had no energy to do these chores, so for them, procrastination was the norm. The people were also dirty and unkempt. Now the drugs were to help them, but they showed no real improvement. These people alluded to the fact the psychiatrist only counseled them for about ten minutes at the most. Now mental health workers were mostly incompetent and without feeling, and it was just a job to them.
Now I have proven that many times well-regimented diets can do more good than all the drugs in the world.
One is to study the self, yet we as a society never teach our children to think about their problems in many cases. Now our education system does not teach the art of thinking; it shows memory with no knowledge of how to think about the problem. They illustrate the process of copy and recite, and memorize facts and all too often are not in evidence or are no longer in evidence. What was true ten years ago may not stand up as a truth today.
By Owen Kelly Ph.D. – Reviewed by a board-certified physician. Updated February 28, 2016 – Question: Is There an OCD Cure? – Answer:
As with all forms of mental illness, there is no known OCD treatment. While medication can reduce or even eliminate the symptoms of OCD Obsessive-compulsive disorder if you stop taking the drug it is likely that your symptoms will return. Likewise, while psychotherapy can be very effective, if you stop using the techniques you have learned your symptoms may worsen again.
Authors comment, this is true only because of improper counseling, and lack of monitoring the progress. Now if the patients can be made to see the value of these techniques and can put them into play every day. Now if he or she sees the benefits, they will be regimented in doing them day in and day out. No different than bodybuilding exercise, these are mined building activity.
As such, OCD the thinking is a chronic illness meaning that much like diabetes or epilepsy; it is something you will have to work on managing every day.
Although it can initially be difficult to accept, having a chronic illness like OCD requires you to shift your focus from a final OCD cure to managing and coping with symptoms and yet they neglect a nutritious diet.
The author’s comment, we are never given something that is not for our good, if we learn to cope and study things that will aid us in our management of the problem. Now we become a better us, both mentally and health-wise, and if we could look at it as being a blessing which it can be. Now If we strive to moderate the obsessiveness, and the compulsiveness and see how we can work it into using it to modify our lives with it. We can accomplish a lot of benefits but one must study the self, and we can find ways to use the condition to our help.
Now I have three examples of three people who had Autism or Asperger’s Madame Curie, Einstein, and Bill Gates and became great producers in this society. Amadeus Mozart also had Asperger’s, look what he gave us.
(Back To Quote)
The good news is that there are effective treatments available, and while every treatment does not work for every person, most people can get significant relief of their symptoms using a combination of medication(s) and psychotherapy. For those who are unable to find relief using standard treatments, new therapies in the form of deep brain stimulation are on the horizon.
Authors Note: Using these deep probes or brain stimulation is not wise, now if we can teach the person to bring their thinking into captivity, and ordering them through capturing them and order them to desist. Yes, we can manage what we think. We have a power of attorney over our mind. (Now Back to quote.)
There are also some helpful strategies that you can use to cope with OCD.
Finally, although it can be frustrating to realize that there is currently no OCD cure, it may be helpful to think about the way you relate to your symptoms. Although unpleasant, anxiety is a very necessary part of life – it can help keep us safe and make us motivated to take action when there is a problem.
Another comment by the author of this article, now to be sedated by drugs leaves the human mind, less able to cope. A spirited mind can think about every situation and is much more able to cope. Now yes there are other strategies we can use, but doctors prefer to use drugs, and I know of several patients, who have been on as many as twenty different medications and no apparent sign of success, or why the so many changes. Now that is all they are to the doctors, just a money-making clients, and treated as such because of the big pharmaceutical kickbacks. If drugs are so successful why the change of medication every six or seven weeks? (Back to the quote)
Indeed, living a life free from anxiety is unrealistic and, in fact, would probably be a little annoying. The more you can learn to accept and integrate stress into your life – while at the same time learning new skills to deal with anxiety other than with compulsions – the easier it will be to cope with it.
Now in the above quote, with some of it, I agree with other points I disagree. I have interspersed my comments throughout. Now I agree with the last paragraph. Now about anxiety, it is a good thing if it causes you to think and also to be able to eradicate the thought from your conscious mind, those that do not serve us we learn how to drop them. We can stop thinking about an anxiety just by ordering it out of our mind. We have that power I call it taking every thought into captivity. You are the master of your thinking, and you can eliminate an idea that is not conducive to your daily plans. I repeat if it does not serve you drop it. Now you may have to say something like this it works for me, I will not tolerate that thought, you will stop, and you will leave. Now, at first it may take ten times of saying this to be rid of that idea, but after many practices of doing this, it will leave after just one ordering it out. Now, this is a practice that must put into effect every day, day in and day out.
Now every thought had a purpose and used every time this principle that I call S.T.O.P. Now I repeat, Study, Think. (Meditate) Organize, and Prioritize the thinking. When we place importance on some thinking over another, we prioritize it in importance and drop the thought that does not serve us. I repeat we can order thoughts to cease. Now This is an art that we must develop over time. It is never taught to our children so they have scattered emotional energies that can be very destructive if not gathered in the bud.
I include some links for you to check out, view the side effects of the drug. https://www.drugs.com/clozapine.html
A second link:
https://www.drugs.com/seroquel.html
Check these two out all side effects, the last one Seroquel is banned in the United States and is still widely used in Canada and Australia, while the company in the USA is losing large sums of money in lawsuits with even billions of lost revenue. So they are pouring these drugs into other countries and not informing the band into existence in the USA.
The powers to be in Canada feel that the end justifies the means especially when the doctors are getting big kickbacks from the drug companies.
Now I am here to say that the psychiatrist is not, and I repeat healing their patients’ and most of the people on this medication show no signs of getting better, and are listless and aimless in their pursuit of life, none can function well enough to hold down a job.
Most of the medication that almost all of the people are on keeps them listless and tired and sleeping more than thirty hours per day. There is no way they can hold down a job. Now the mental health will not allow anyone in the community to help these individuals.
Why consider residential treatment for bipolar disorder? What is bipolar disorder and what are the symptoms of bipolar disorder? How does an integrated treatment team approach work in treating bipolar disorder? How does psychiatrist treatment in an open setting work? These are questions that I ask all the time but do not have space here to address them. Research them for yourself. Now their integrated system does not, and is not working. Watch for a blog on these question.
Now in my observation of the work done in this small British Columbia town, there was the failure all around, all they do is medicate the problem, and walk away from the problem, and when they should be teaching healthy eating habits, and make sure that the client is receiving proper nutrition. Now, most of these people with the illness are on a very limited budget and cannot get food that is nutritious. They visit food banks and the food they receive is second-rate and mostly carbohydrates to fill the stomach and limited in nutrition. Much of this food is stale dated, in as much as it fills the stomach they receive little nutrition. Most doctors and health care workers do not know what right food dieting is and how to accomplish the same.
There is little or no sustenance of the five food groups so that the nutrition is lacking and the body that needs all the nutrition required for proper health is lacking. So this lack of all the necessary nutrients, the body is found overfed and undernourished and malnutrition is the end results. Now a body in a malnutrition state cannot be healthy.

ISRAEL  SURRENDER? NEVER

13 Feb

ISRAEL  SURRENDER? NEVER
By: Paul D. Hudon
We have the Holocaust of 1939 – 1945 and when freed the Israelite “said’ never again will we submit like sheep to the slather,  annihilation will be the order for peace to reign.
Now, this is the aim of the Muslim countries surrounding them.
I repeat they said never again will we follow like sheep to the slaughter. Now if the UN is putting into play their idea of peace, after the failure of the first body the League of Nations, the change of name has done nothing to further peace. Now there have been wars, and there will be more wars. Until humanity gives up his desire to hoard money with no regard to sharing the wealth, we will have wars.
Now, as long as religion keeps separating and the heads of these religion hoard money, what does the leader of a church require 90,000,000.00 in an estate worth; and a salary of 1,000,000.00 per year. That is the said amount of Billy Graham Jr. estate. There are other far more wealthy.
They build bigger and bigger temples to what they say God, yet three times in scripture it is said that the ETERNAL SUPREAM CREATOR does not live in temples built with hands. Found in Acts+17:24-28; Acts 7:48-51; Isaiah 66:1-2: check it out it is repeated three times once in the old testament and twice in Acts.
Now this money wasted on these edifices could better serve in taking care of the widow, the orphans, and the homeless. Now as you read the following, do you think that it will stop the Israel from building on the land they won in the Six Day War? The Answer is no they will not turn back and especially since the hatred for the Jews again is in the forefront of society.
Now all the Nazi allowed in Canada after the second world war, and also those allowed into the U.S.A. are becoming a significant problem. The Israel will not, and they will have peace on their terms and no other way, and damned if they will comply to the U.N. a powerless body that has not stop any war, and all too often tied the peacekeeping force hands in their mandate. Again I maintain an ineffectual body with no power in any of their decision. They serve no redeemable value in real and genuine peacekeeping.

The U.N. Security Council on Friday passed a resolution demanding Israel cease Jewish settlement activity on Palestinian territory in a unanimous vote that passed when the United States abstained rather than using its veto as it has reliably done in the past.
The resolution declares settlements constructed on land Israel has occupied since the 1967 war, including East Jerusalem, have “no legal validity.” It said these expansions threaten the viability of the two-state solution, and it urged Israelis and Palestinians to return to negotiations that lead to two independent nations.
The following taken from CNN feed –
The United States’ abstention Friday was a rare rebuke to Israel and reflected mounting frustration in the Obama administration over settlement growth that the United States considers an obstacle to peace. With President Obama’s time in office due to end in barely a month, his decision not to veto was a symbolic statement of that displeasure.
“In the absence of any meaningful peace process, as well as in the face of the acceleration of settlement activity that put at risk the viability of a two-state solution, we took the steps we did today,” said Ben Rhodes, the White House deputy national security adviser.
Danny Danon, the Israeli ambassador to the U.N., excoriated the Security Council after the vote, saying they did not have the right to tell Israelis not to build in Jerusalem, and suggesting it will have little impact on Israeli policies.
“We overcame those decrees during the time of the Maccabees, and we will overcome this evil decree today,” he said.
Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said immediately after the vote that Obama and Secretary of State John F. Kerry have privately and publicly been warning Israel that the moribund prospects for peace were undermining Israel’s ability to remain both Jewish and democratic.
The resolution also condemned Palestinian incitement to violence and all acts of terrorism. Power said the United States would not have allowed its passage without that proviso. She also criticized the United Nations itself, saying it had perpetuated a double standard by repeatedly condemning Israeli actions while remaining silent about Palestinian incitement.
The 14-0 vote, with only the United States abstaining, followed an intense campaign by Israel to derail it. They voted on Thursday, but Egypt withdrew its sponsorship after the country’s president spoke by phone with President-elect Donald Trump, who got involved at Israel’s request. Friday’s resolution sponsored by New Zealand, Malaysia, Venezuela and Senegal.
The 14-0 vote, with the United States the only member abstaining, brought a swift reaction, particularly in Israel and in Congress.
“This is absolutely shameful,” House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said in a statement, promising that next year, “our unified Republican government will work to reverse the damage done by this administration, and rebuild our alliance with Israel.”
Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) said abstaining made the United States “complicit in this outrageous attack” on Israel, and predicted the resolution “will serve as yet an another roadblock to peace between Israelis and Palestinians, and embolden the enemies of Israel.”
Meanwhile Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who chairs the Appropriations subcommittee that deals with foreign aid, threatened earlier on Friday to reduce the U.S.’s contributions to the United Nations and any country that voted for the resolution.
After the vote, Graham tweeted that “Obama-Kerry foreign policy has gone from naive and foolish to flat-out reckless. With friends like these #Israel doesn’t need any enemies.”
In Israel, Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz, a close ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said the resolution was not only against settlements but was also anti-Israel and against Jews everywhere.
“After eight years of friendship with Obama and joint work, this move hurts and is unfair,” he said.
But Israel’s U.N. ambassador Danny Danon expressed disappointment with what he called “this disgraceful resolution.”
“I have no doubt that the new US administration and the incoming UN Secretary General will usher in a new era regarding the UN’s relationship with Israel,” he said. 
Following is Israel stance on the UN vote. – – Israel has taken diplomatic action against the countries that co-sponsored a controversial UN resolution condemning Israeli settlement building in the West Bank and Jerusalem. Now the 15-member Security Council voted 14 – 0 on the proposed measure on Friday, with the US’s ambassador Samantha Power raising her hand as the lone abstention – a symbolic break with US policy in the past, which has been to veto similar resolutions.
The resolution was put forward by New Zealand, Senegal, Malaysia, and Venezuela, taking place just a day after Egypt withdrew it after significant pressure from both Israel and President-elect Donald Trump.
The resolution demands that Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem,” pointing out that the international community views any Israeli construction over the agreed 1967 Green Line as illegal.
While it won’t have any practical impact, the resolution is a “significant step” in reconfirming the UN’s hopes for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, outgoing Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said on Friday.
Settlement building – which has accelerated year on year under current right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – is viewed as one of the major stumbling blocks to a lasting peace deal.
Israel’s envoy to the UN, Danny Damon, called the vote was “shameful” and a “victory for terror.” Israel has said it will not abide by the measures set out in the document.
In Jerusalem, Mr. Netanyahu immediately recalled Israel’s ambassadors to New Zealand and Senegal, who were ordered to return for consultations. All current aid to Senegal was to suspend, the Prime Minister’s office said, and an upcoming visit from Senegal’s Foreign Minister Mankeur Ndiaye canceled.
Israel does not have diplomatic relations with either Malaysia or Venezuela. 
(My comment to this is it does not surprise me on their voting as they are one of the countries that gave asylum to the German Nazi, so their hatred for the Israeli is no surprise. By Paul D. Hudon)
Defending New Zealand’s vote on Saturday, the country’s Foreign Minister Murray Mc Cully said: “We have been very open about our view that the [UN Security Council] should be doing more to support the Middle East peace process. Now the position we adopted today is entirely in line with our long-established policy on the Palestinian question.
“The vote should not come as a surprise to anyone, and we look forward to continuing to engage constructively with all parties on this issue.”
New Zealand is one of the current ten non-permanent members of the Security Council. It is almost at the end of its two-year tenure.

WERE ARE YOU IN YOUR SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION?

WERE ARE YOU IN YOUR
SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION?
By: Paul D. Hudon
I took this from the internet, and I paraphrased it to serve my purpose because I do not believe in this verbatim. http://goldenageofgaia.com/spiritual-essays/the-divine-plan-for-life/the-divine-plan-for-life-is-spiritual-evolution/ – I will be adding comments in Italic and end with P.D.H
As they awaken to the unique nature of these times, I think that many people will ask what the point of life is. There will be so much occurring and what occurs will be of such consequence that some will ask us to start at the beginning.
The purpose of living in this dispensation
And where is that beginning? That beginning is the Divine Plan for life. And that Plan can be summarized in two words: spiritual evolution. We move from God to God in quest of conscious awareness of our identity as God. We do that so that God may meet God in a moment of our enlightenment.
Let’s focus in on the messages of SaLuSa to hear his consistent explanation of the Divine Plan for life.
Let’s focus in on the messages of SaLuSa to hear his logical explanation of the Divine Plan for life.
“Some [people] will … ask what the point of [life] is,” SaLuSa says, “and, Dear Ones, wherever you are and whatever you are doing it is for your growth and evolution.”
1. All of life, he says, is “a continuous round of experiences that you have all set in place to further your spiritual evolution.”
2. Life everywhere in the Universe “is continually evolving,” he continues; “it is a natural condition that forever impels you forward.”
3. The impact of the Plan extends to every aspect of our lives: “Whatever you are involved in including your family and friends, the object is to apply yourself to situations in such a way that it will further your spiritual evolution.”
4. But life is not only purposeful; it is also resilient. All our lives, SaLuSa tells us, “lead you ever onwards in your evolutionary search for upliftment.”
5. It was the desire to progress that led us to descend into duality in the first place: “The upliftment in your spiritual evolution is the whole purpose and outcome of your time in duality.”
6. Regarding planning our next incarnation, we are never made to do something, and our journey into duality is no exception. “The Creator did not force you into the cycle of duality,” SaLuSa says, “as you eagerly volunteered to know you would one day return to your home in the higher dimensions.”
7. In our long journey into duality, we played both light and dark roles to enhance our learning. – “Each of you has had experiences of the Dark and Light because that is the reason you entered this cycle. Experience means progress and is your pathway back to the Light that knows no equal.”
You have had more than one incarnation this could be your 100 or more lives on this earth, you have lived in the dark probably more often than in the light, you must eventually come to the realization that your life must reflect UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. That is the fulfillment of the agenda of your soul, which is GOD in you, your hope of enlightenment. (P.D. H.)
8. Eventually, we’ll transcend the human condition and go on to greater destinies. “It must not be forgotten that you are all potential gods in the making. Your lives are infinite.” (PH Now the life that we possess is GOD, so we are more than GOD in the making, and are an expression of the divinity incarnated for HIS purpose, hoping we will choose the light side of life. There are two choice FEAR and HATE, or UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.)
9. Human beings now, we’ll eventually assume roles that are at present beyond our imagining.
“Knowing that your present life is just but one of many that will continue ad infinitum, you will realize that it is all for your experience as you grow in consciousness. It will gradually expand so that eventually it could embrace a whole planet and way into your future some of you may choose to experience being a planetary logos.”
10. To what point does this all fulfill? The same distant future is sought and shared by everyone and everything.
As SaLuSa phrases it, “everything that exists is moving back to the Source.” To merge again with the same Source from which we came is the goal of everything that lives. Because this is our common destiny, “we join hands and help each other.”
( For we are GOD, ETERNAL, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, ABSOLUTE POWER IS OURS, and TOTAL FREEDOM,  we are not subject do this do not do this, this is not the freedom that GOD intended for HIS creation. P.D. H.)
11. Some Design Elements of Life, One of the shared features or design elements present in all of life is the desire to evolve and progress.
“Evolution is quite natural and the desire to do so remains with you forever. It is fun and rewarding, particularly once you graduate to the higher dimensions. Heavenly might be a word that would convey what we mean, but your memories of such times are clouded by the amount of time you have already spent in duality.”
Your soul has this information, but we have no instruction in the art of listening to our gut feelings or prompt which I like to call tuning into our inner core being. P.D.H.
12 There isn’t a life form that doesn’t feel the desire to evolve: “You … like every other soul [have] an innate urge to rise higher and higher, and not even the lowest of the low completely lose it.”
13. Another design element found in the plan for life is the feature of reincarnation. Its purpose to is to promote our spiritual evolution.
(Now, this can also be called your souls agenda which you will learn if you meditate on your life and listen to the UNIVERSE and its prompt to you through your SOUL. P.D. H.)
“The purpose of living many lives is to follow an overall plan that leads to your spiritual evolution. It is the only way to advance and leave the cycle of re-birth behind.”
14. Our lives have often seen us suffer, SaLuSa tells us, because “it is through such experiences that you grow

ETERNALS WISDOM OR MANS

ETERNALS WISDOM OR MANS    

By: Paul D. Hudon        

Eternal Wisdom Or Mans: which of these will you claim? They were to have dominion over all of their surroundings. We too have this power over our surroundings if we are resting in Christ if we have entered into our rest. Now, this was the condition that was before Adam and Eve fell from grace, they would have retained full dominion over the earth, but they failed. When they allowed themselves to be deceived by DARK SIDE, they gave up this power OVER the earth to Satan. Like every human being, WE wanted their cake and can eat it also. To keep the cake, man has not counted the cost he always wanted The Good And The Evil. They have never known the difference; they have decided that it is better to have the gray areas, because this allows degrees of being correct, we are never entirely wrong. Did we not take upon ourselves to know as much as the Eternal Father? Did not Satan say that the day we eat of the fruit from the Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil we would be just like Him? We are like HIM with all respect because we are GODS, ETERNAL, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, ULTIMATE POWER IS OURS, and we are FREE.  Does this not give us the prerogative that is His only? I maintain we have allowed deception to be ours and to this day are still allowing ourselves to be deceived. It is the fruits of This Tree that has permeated our deceitful heart, or inner core being. Now, this is what makes our heart deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. The Eternal says do not do this, for the traditions of men will not worship me, but we do just that, with Xmas, Easter, All Saints day, hallowed-eve, etc. so on and so forth.
Now many signs and wonders we can study in physics; that will open your eyes to the knowledge of the truth. We have the two examples that are mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, the jump starting of a seemingly dead person by the electric paddles.
The physical body sends out pain signals to the mind to let the person know that there is something wrong with the health of the body. The body is electrically charged and can be analyzed by electrical devices. In the same way, man must and cannot disregard the symptoms that come to him through members of the congregant. The leaders cannot and must not arrogantly dismiss these telltale signs, which he send to them by the Holy Spirit. We have been frustrating the Holy Spirit, by not paying heed to the signs. All attempts at reconciling the whole body are the first undertaking of a leader. Christ introduced what is called a body ministry; the present day pyramid style of organization practiced is a direct copy of the Old Testament Aaron, or Levite Priesthood, and in the image of the Roman Government. I say this because splits and divisions we cannot prevent under this austere style of leadership. When they walk around stating or believing that they are infallible. He says in revelation if it were possible even the elect we could deceive. For there shall see a rise a false Christ and false prophets, and shall show signs and wonders in so much that if it were possible, they deceive the very elect.
When man allows human to lead them, rather than let themselves led by the Holy Spirit, the body divides, and re-divides and all of it happens over and over again. Now if we could only understand this and believe it, and believe that this is His Work, and trust in Him to change his people. Let us do it without extra do this, do not do that, and placing so many restrictions, that we are no better than the Sadducees, or the Pharisees. Some example of these you shouldn’t dance, nor drink, nor play cards, these all are harmless endeavor if done in the right attitude or spirit. Now, this is what we have to teach is control or TEMPERANCE. We must be temperate in all things, temperance a fruit of the Tree of Life. If we drink alcohol, and when we drink and do so to get drunk, this is against his will. If and where the congregant is not allowed to think for him or herself they then, in turn, do everything that they believed yet have not proven. Their acceptance of the word of the leader is their belief hence they are not free moral agents. When they leave, they are seven times worse off than if we did not introduce them to this cult. If the leader is leading them down the wrong path, they do not and cannot know, or even be made aware of it. I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of Christ, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto Eternal Father, which is your reasonable service. The duty of every one of us is to allow the HOLY SPIRIT to lead us into all truths because our Soul has an agenda to accomplish and it cannot be bog down with dogma.  Your belief must be from your heart, and you must have proven it to be so, by your study of His Word. You cannot know what your living sacrifice is if you rely on human leaders to tell you. Be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what His Good, Acceptable, And Perfect Will is. So this is what we are here to accomplish SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION. You can only do the renewing of your mind through ETERNAL CREATOR living in you. Now you have ETERNAL LIFE,  You can work on advice but make sure that you prove it to be according to the wisdom of your ETERNAL CREATORS PROMPT through HIS HOLY SPIRIT or his universal source. I am not telling you what to do; I am only asking you to think for yourself, and to wean yourself from the milk of the word and start relying on the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truths. Remember this is a promise, and this is the meat. If you do not believe His Promises, you will believe a lie. We as human beings are too lazy to study for ourselves we want instant knowledge. Now, we can all acquired by tuning into the Holy Spirit, but it requires your trusting that it will lead you into all truths for you and no one else. There is a physical principle or law of airwaves broadcasting, to hear the radio, we must tune into the right frequency. Now, this is again a physical, law or principle that teaches us the spiritual.  I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according to what the Eternal Father has given every man his measure of faith. Well, this is for Him alone and to no other man, and it also says be not conformed to the ways of this world. In the Old Testament dispensation, the Israelites answered to the Priesthood of Levite, the High Priest. Today we only respond to the Eternal Father Creator and the Holy Spirit, which is their spiritual frequency. We must renew our mind, Which Is The Spirit In Man The Life Of Man, as in the marriage state, we the spiritual, mind of man must submit to the Spiritual Mind the Holy Spirit, which is the life of the Eternal Creator. Through doing this, we will grow into their acceptable and perfect will. Thy kingdom come thy will be done in this Earthen Vessel, that is for me as it is in heaven. Remember that we are not the only members of this body, but there are many. The other bodies have physical heads to their organizations, serving in the same capacity they say in place of Christ. Christ through the Apostles introduced the body ministry, and this did not allow for a human head of things; for a real leader; leads by example and not by coercion. This was the example that Christ tried to put into play at the foot washing of his disciples the night before he was to die.
Our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and honest sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom. But by His Grace, we have had our conduct in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. For we write nothing more unto you than what you read or acknowledge; and I trust you shall acknowledge even to the end. As also you have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as you also are hours in the day of our Eternal Creator’s Wish.
Scholarly wisdom is worldly wisdom, and He says that He will use the small and bass things to confound the wise. I know I am repeating, but every scripture leads back to the one point, choosing between the Dark and Light. The Dark we always interpret as evil. They the Word, by changing it to suit our purpose, when he quoted The Eternal Father word about the Tree Of The Knowledge Of Good And Evil he translated it for them. He said that it did not say what the simple truth was. His message was more complicated than that. Satan said that in the day that you shall eat you shall not die you will be like your Eternal Father. With the father a day is as a thousand years, so they perished in the day they sinned. We know that the Eternal did not agree with this rendering of His Word. Further to this, the word says in simplicity and truth. I fear, less by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should corrupt it from the Simplicity That Is In Him. If you receive another spirit, which we have not received, and which we have not accepted, you might well bear with Him who speaks the truth.  Now there is no such thing as Satan, we know is not included in scripture until early 1400 it did not exist before that and was included in scripture for fear and control aspect over the masses.
The works of the fruit of His Holy Spirit the Tree Of Life; which we find in the following scripture Gal: 5:22. I’ am repeating because I want you to realize that if these are not prevalent in your life, you are not governed by laws. I have said this before but it bears repeating, and it cannot emphasize enough.
He who hath called you, GOD is Holy, so be you holy in all manner of conversation or conduct, the commandment we must be holy, for HE’S HOLY. We are to examine ourselves, whether we are in the faith; and we must prove our self.  Do you not know YOUR self, how that unless you KNOW, WE are GODS, LETS trust that this is known. If a man succumbs to faults; and we who are spiritual, restore him in the spirit of meekness; considering yourself, unless we also are tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill LOVE. If a man thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself, but let every man prove his worth, and then shall he rejoice in himself alone, and not in another. Let us not compare ourselves among ourselves. Every man shall bear his burden. Let him that is taught in the word: communicate these to him that he teaches in all good things. We cannot deceive the self.Now we cannot mock: for whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap. Rejoice evermore, prey without ceasing, and in everything, give thanks, for this is His will through His Christ, concerning you. Quench Not The Spirit. HATE not His teachings, prove all things; hold fast that which is good, and abstain from all appearance of evil. Remember that the highest dwells not in temples made with hands; as says the prophet. Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will you build me? Further to this, HE says the Eternal: what or where is the place of my rest? Hath not my hand-made all these things? Seeing that The Eternal is from heaven, He dwells not in temples made with hands; neither can WE worship HIM with men’s hands. As though he needed anything, seeing he gives to all life, and breath, and all things. I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputor of this world; has not He made foolish the wisdom of this world? The Eternal has chosen the weak things of this world to confound the things, which are mighty. The base things of this world, and things, which are despised, have He chosen, yes, and things which are not. To bring to nothing, things that are, that no flesh should boast in His presence; so are you in Him, who made us unto His wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption: that, according to the written word, and he that boast, let him boast in GOD.
You know we still cling to that idea, we are building these big temples to his glory, this must stop, this is a waste of man’s resources, and the poor go untended. They will maintain their right to do so because they are living after the fruits of the Tree Of The Knowledge Of Good And Evil. Is it not good that we build a house to the eternal, even if He says NO. They believe these to be to the greater good of man.  That, according to Unconditional Love, so he that boast lets his LOVE be through GOD. We have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit, which is the ETERNAL CREATOR; that we might know the things HE freely gives to us, through ETERNAL SPIRIT LIFE SOURCE. If you LIVE IN LOVE AND the IN GODS LOVE you are Spiritual, and you have no need to be judged because you have judged yourself. You see to build great temples is not foolish to man, yet our Eternal Father says he will not live in them. Who are we building these for, is it not for our self-aggrandizement it must be, so we can say look what I have accomplished?
Now, this is why divisions are not of the Eternal Father because He does not divide He unites. The Holy Spirit brings unity, not division. Seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may live in peace, without spot, and blameless.
There is an aside that I wish to report here, and that is we have people who believe in the Eternal or say they do but deny the power of the same. Now, this is a wall between man and Our Eternal Father that must come tumbling down. We either believe with our whole heart, mind, and body, or we give up the notion altogether. This spirit of unbelief must come tumbling down. They profess that they know Him, but in their works they deny Him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. We must come to the belief that he can and has done everything that we purport of Him, or we are reprobates. We say He Is All Powerful, All Knowing, All Seeing, yet in our works we deny His existence.
Belief In The Eternal, Is It Enough? Many people parrot this phrase never realizing what they are saying, never understanding the ramification of it. To Believe Must Be Done In Faith Never Wavering. We must first come to the conclusion that everything physical has a spiritual counterpart, and the physical only serves as a mirror of things to come. We do not use His Word and wrest it to say what we want it to say, to support our multiple theories on the divinity of the Family of The Eternal, or any myriads of other doctrines. We have no difficulty in grasping the simple statement that teaching is in simplicity and truth.
Now, this is the process that takes place in the mind of man when he embraces the Holy Spirit and believes that he is righteous. He becomes the great expectation of his Heavenly Father righteous; he climbs and reaches for the mark of the high calling. For the reason that his Father calls him, sanctified, holy, honest, reconciled. He says that if you have the Holy Spirit in you, you cannot sin. I know that you have found me repeating principles, but they have always been from a different approach. Now his is all too often the condition that most of us followers have in common; we waver in our beliefs in His promises. We must again admit that without Him we are nothing, even our faith is from the Holy Spirit. I have heard some teachers advocate that we cannot grow in faith, this is quite wrong because He gives the fruits and a fruit grows; this is why the man above knew he needed help with his unbelief. We are commanded to ask for more of the Spirit, so if we ask for faith, which is a gift and a fruit of the Holy Spirit. You are a Chosen Generation, A Royal Priesthood, a holy nation, and a peculiar people who you should show forth the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Yes, We Are All Priest. We have no need for the division of priest, from the laity.
I once knew a man who hated alcoholics so much that he wrote an article saying that every time the word wine appear in the Bible, it was not fermented wine but pure grape juice. His small church of about sixteen people swallowed this doctrine hook line and sinker.

Conclusion:
Everything that I have written comes to this conclusion; there are no secrets with the Eternal Father. We must remember we have no excuse, and we cannot make any for ourselves. I have not totally accomplished as Paul said, I must still internalize all these truths, so they become me. Now anything I place behind I Am: I become; I am LOVE I become LOVE; I am Faith, Joy, Peace, Long Suffering and on and on.

POPE DICTATES!

POPE DICTATES!
By: Paul D. Hudon


Now this would not be so funny if it was not such a tragedy. Here is a religion that does not believe in scriptures that they were in control of for 1400 years and they only use the four gospel and some of the writings of Paul.
Now they have placed themselves above the scriptures and say that their Pope has absolute power. So the following comes as no surprise, and further to this they do not advocate that their parishioners read the Bible. Their Bible has seven more books than the King James Bible used by all other Christian Religions.
We have a belief in scriptures that contradict; you cannot have LOVE and FEAR in the same belief, there is no reason to fear GOD because He is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. He has no need for hell. He has no need for any destruction of His creation because he can always make them come back to the earth in another life to learn UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
Now the Bible is composed of two facets, one of TOTAL LOVE, the other of Fear, Hate, War, Gossip, Control mongering and not inspired by GOD and cannot be because HE is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, and I repeat. This part of scripture is mans attempt for control and put into the scriptures by the Roman Church in those 1400 years they had total access and Control of scripture.

The following is another attempt by them to dictate to the world or the part they control.
The following taken from the internet the News Feed.

Pope Francis, making permanent a temporary measure put in place for the Vatican’s Jubilee year, declared on Monday that all priests would have the right to forgive abortion.
“I henceforth grant to all priests, in virtue of their ministry, the faculty to absolve those who have committed the sin of procured abortion,” the pope wrote in an apostolic letter marking the end of the “Year of Mercy,” which wound up Sunday.
“The provision I had made in this regard, limited to the duration of the Extraordinary Holy Year, is at this moment extended, notwithstanding anything to the contrary,” he wrote.
The 79-year old Argentine said he had to “restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin since it puts an end to an innocent life.”
On Sunday, as he brought the Jubilee to an end by closing the bronze-panelled Holy Door in Saint Peter’s Square, Francis gave an interview in which he slammed abortion as “horrendous crime.”
But he said on Monday that the end of the particular year did not mean the end of mercy itself and so-called sinners we must offer grace and chance to repent. The Church considers abortion to be a sin.
“I can and must state that there is no sin that God’s mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to reconciled with the Father,” he said in the letter.
“May every priest, therefore, be a guide, support and comfort to penitents on this journey of special reconciliation.”
The watchword of mercy has meant helping the unfortunate, and welcoming outcasts back into the fold.
The pope hopes greater compassion from a more open-minded Church will not only counter xenophobia but also draw people to pews.

SLAVERY

21 Nov

SLAVERY As taken from the net and paraphrased.

Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ. Many other scriptures refer to submission of the masses in scripture. Now since the Roman church held the scripture in control for over 1400 years. Now only they were in control so what should be included or excluded. The word your is in Italic in the Biblical text that usually says it was not in the original. Now who knows what was original and what was not? The roman church does not follow the scriptures, and place little credence on them.

Now this scripture is definite proof that all forms of submission contradict the principle that we are born free. If we are as they preach born free, then any and all rules to subject the man to comply are not LOVE. LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL; we love because we see “the” us in every human being, and until we all come to the unity of spirit or soul is the command. There is no room for separation or division. The following is an article from the net, and there is a picture to accompany it. I will give the URL here: http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/this-viral-photo-changed-america-%E2%80%94-in-1863/ar-AAkzhtg?li=AAacUQk&ocid=spartandhp

The picture provided by Boston Globe Media Partners, LLC On the Fourth of July in 1863 — an Independence Day that dawned with twisted, bloated bodies carpeting the fields and orchards of Gettysburg,  tens of thousands of Americans who thought themselves numb to violence learned they were wrong. Leafing through the new issue of Harper’s Weekly, they encountered the graphic sight of a shirtless black slave in profile revealing a barbaric web of welts across the canvas of his bare back, a testament to a brutal whipping.
To many Northerners who had never set foot on a plantation, the image offered the first visual evidence of slavery’s inhumanity that they had ever seen. “It’s one of the first photographs to show a slave who apparently beaten severely,” says Frank Goodyear, co-director of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, who has long studied the picture. “It suggests that the Southern idea that slavery was a benign institution was, in fact, a lie.”
A century-and-a-half later, the revolting visual still steals the breath. Now, new research by Bruce Laurie, an emeritus professor of history at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Reveals how the image came about: A pair of Union soldiers from Western Massachusetts who were shocked by the cruelty of slavery they confronted produced the iconic picture in the hopes of making virtual eyewitnesses of those back home.
When the photograph went viral, it demonstrated the ability of the visual medium to expose racial injustice and foster social change.
Now long before cellphone videos of fatal police shootings rose to the civil rights forefront.
In his new study, “‘Chaotic Freedom’ in Civil War Louisiana: The Origins of an Iconic Image,” Laurie identifies Hampshire Gazette publisher Henry S. Gere and Marshall Stearns as the soldiers responsible for the famous photograph. While Gere was a “firebrand abolitionist” from his teenage days, his fellow soldier in the 52nd Massachusetts Regiment had a more complicated relationship with race. Laurie writes in his essay, which will be released as an e-book later this month by the Massachusetts Review that Stearns was “an ignorant and naïve racist” who had no contact with African-Americans before enlisting in the fall of 1862. “Like most men in the regiment,” Laurie says, “he went to war probably because he was a Unionist first. I don’t think he gave a second thought to slavery.”
That all changed once Stearns joined Gere in Baton Rouge, La., in December 1862 and given charge of the so-called contrabands slaves who had escaped to the Union camp.
After witnessing the hardships and risks they experienced, Stearns refused to return slaves to planters and reprimanded officers who disparaged African-Americans. “Reading his letters very carefully, he’s becoming an abolitionist,” Laurie says. “Little by little, they are appalled by what they view around Baton Rouge. Becoming more sympathetic after about a month. Then his racist language is curtailed as a sign that he’s more enlightened.”
One day in the early spring of 1863, Stearns and Gere joined a crowd of soldiers and medics in the recruiting office as a recently escaped slave named Peter removed the shroud of rags that partially concealed his back to reveal a vast network of scars. The wounds from the whip of an irate overseer also lashed the sensibilities of Stearns and Gere, who called it “one of the most horrid and singular objects I have ever beheld.”
Gere wrote during his time in Louisiana that African-Americans “must be seen” in order “to be fully understood and their condition fully appreciated.” Although he revered the written word as a newspaper publisher, Gere joined many abolitionists in embracing the new wonder of photography as a way to change millions of minds.
Twice in April 1863, Gere and Stearns brought Peter to pose for portraits taken by Boston-born photographer William D. McPherson, who was visiting their camp with his assistant. Thanks to recent technological advancements, McPherson was able to cheaply mass-produce Peter’s image on wallet-sized carte de visit and printed on cardstock and easier to disseminate than expensive daguerreotypes, which required a fragile glass case for protection.
While the soldiers sent copies of the photograph to family and friends in Massachusetts, a third portrait of Peter likely arranged by Massachusetts medics in the Baton Rouge camp. Now according to Laurie, it is circulated through abolitionist, social networks before breaking into the mainstream media, including its reproduction in Harper’s Weekly which misidentified Peter as “Gordon,” according to Laurie.
As painful and uncomfortable as Peter’s image was to view, it allowed a mass audience to experience the same transformation as Stearns did on the ground in Louisiana. The powerful image conveyed the evils of slavery in a way that even the strongest words of abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison or Harriet Beecher Stowe never could.
In an accusation that’s become all too familiar in the age of Photoshop, pro-slavery forces challenged the photograph as a fabrication. “Another response was that the slave probably deserved it,” Laurie says, “and this is what you have to do if slaves act up.”
These days, our hands clutch cell phones instead of carte de visite. Goodyear says he can’t help but see the parallels between the circulation of Peter’s image and modern-day citizen videos of police shootings that we can disseminate with just a tap on the touchscreen.
“What began as a very local, even private, image ultimately achieved something much grander because it circulated so widely,” he says of Peter’s photograph.
“When many wished to maintain the status quo, photography provided abolitionists,  and more recently other reformers, with a new form of communication that proved very significant in winning support for a political cause.
