AROHA TO YOU my Dear Friends
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
[Matthew 5:3-10 - KJV Bible]
"I wasn't trying to be a hero, I was thinking about it from this standpoint -- In a house on fire and a mother has a child in that house, what prompts her to go in and get that child? "Love," I loved my men, and they loved me. I don't consider myself a hero. I just couldn't give them up, just like a mother couldn't give up the child." [Desmond Doss - US Congressional Medal of Honour, WAR HERO/PACIFIST]
This is my own experience :
I've read lots of stuff on lots of sites on the Internet about the Problems of the world, and How to overcome those problems.
Read Lots of books, that have been written with the best of intentions originally, on how to improve things, or oneself (so the world will be a better place). They all flop down eventually.
Seen Lots of Movies portraying the same.
My meditations have been on all sorts of things, in all sorts of ways.
Life has been really full - so far: Been an asthetic, a magician, a devotee, a hedonist, an ordinary guy.
Also a healer, a nurse, a slaughterhouse worker, done some beekeeping, been a driver, an itinerant, a salesman, a sawmill worker, computer programmer, employer, employee, counsellor, patient, therapist, labourer, adventurer, gardener, poet, farm-hand, artist, a tarot reader, commune dweller, etc.....
Been Vegan, Vegetarian, Fruitarian, Meat-eater, Fish and Veges. Omnivore.
Been Catholic, Protestant, Buddhist, Hare-Krsna, Taoist, Shaman, Atheist, Agnostic, a christian Theologist, a Sadhu, Sufi, Astrologer .... Studied many Philosophies (including some drug-taking ones) and also Psychology(s) ..... other creedos too ....
Mixed with all sorts of people from all sorts of places, cultures, races and backgrounds (good, bad and indifferent).
And I am/was being: friend, brother, son, uncle, father, grandfather, grandson, husband, lover, nephew, cousin, helper, client, acquaintance, sounding-board, companion, colleague, teacher, student, advisor, servant, champion, nemesis, victim, enemy....
Lost my way lots of times, and found out lots of truth (and lies)
BUT it wasn't till i was " Born Again into JESUS CHRIST"
did I finally find out what LOVE, Healing, Forgiveness, JOY and TRUTH really is.
Jesus Himself, had to show me
Because (inspite of all my learning and open-mindedness, and all my adventures, abilities, knowledge..... and denial) i needed a Saviour.
[i was middle-aged by then - And i wouldn't have believed a mere human or a "spirit"]
He showed me that 'LOVE' and 'the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE' and 'the LIGHT' are not merely concepts or dogmas, to embrace or run away from. -They are embodied in a PERSON.
That Person is Himself, JESUS CHRIST "the Son of the Living God" & "The Holy One of God"
Real Friend and Saviour and Master of All who seek......
Wonderful, Pure and Holy - JESUS
DO YOU KNOW MY FRIEND?
The POET is meYou wanted stuff from me, New Stuff,
You called it "supporting" You,
But all i had, or have, is WORDS
And i wait for yours - while You read
Yes! Words are all i have,
Words, the garden of the mind
Words that are mightier than swords
Words that express LOVE and Hope
The Words that joke or reminisce
Words that talk to GOD in prayer
Words that write letters, poems, blogs
Words of support - that's what i have
Inside the mind of GOD - He knows me
i can GIVE Him nothing
only what's in my heart and mind
And the words that come from the "waka of my dreams"
My words fall on your eyes/ears
You choose the option
Hear or see - take them to You - or Not...
Will my words, again, mean nothing?
You wanted STUFF from me - Support
But Poems and Words are NOT Stuff
Hope and Dreams are Not Stuff
Forgiveness and Laughter is Not Stuff
While you had the words of others
There was no time for my questions
I waited for Your answers, still do...
While you, distracted, Read...
You wanted Support from me - I'm Sorry
All i have is the "magic answer" to prayers
and Words asking You to show forgiveness...
Words - shedding my tears, for YOU!
Words calling to us still... echoing ...
waiting for our Words
Words offering new LOVE...
Hope - softening our hardened Hearts
WORDS. . . . . ..

Welcome to EARTH, this tiny planet in the vastness of space.... where some of us DON'T eat McDonalds or KFC and don't drink GM coffee at Starbucks (or Coca Cola/Pepsi)!____ There's enough of everything here for we humans if we love, share our wealth, and care for each other, And our planet;
But we must trust in the Divine Processes of God, our Creator and sustainer, and believe that JESUS knew what he was talking about .....
Oh what?... me? - "What you see is what you get"....
Happy mostly - sometimes very sad, Not all good - not all bad...
I'm the 3rd of Six Children and the eldest son.
I'm moving on...
I still miss my young son, Onyx Salmon, every single day - but he lives 11,711 miles away (ask me about him)...
Some people reckon that i can be "very intense" !!!!!!! (whatever that means -LoL... an extremely bigoted & obnoxious curmudgeon?)
Ho-hum - tired of most of the words that others have tried to "put in my mouth" (and then expected me to swallow them)....(nowadays i spit them out, - and let them eat their own)...
"Even though I've got some disability, I'm not badly handicapped, or mentally deficient" (well not always) *LOL*
i Don't believe that i Have a Soul... i AM a Soul ....
(and when i die i Will be dead -with *Maybe a future awakening in God's plan) ... So, for me - it's mostly "this Life" that counts *NOW* - (Immortality is a privilege Not a Right -[God's choice not mine])
*I live in Hope of miracles*... still...
And i'm *constantly* AMAZED at the "phenomenon of Consciousness"...
*** Now YOU *** - Please Tell me about You?

|Wild Fact About Me
||I LOVE Quiet, Natural places ... Forests, Beaches, Seas, Wetlands, Mountains, Hills, Meadows, Lakes, Glaciers, Rivers, Plains, Deltas - * i like Singing [Anywhere] * - i think: "What God made is *Very* Good"
||Trust in GOD and "It'll be alright in the end"
"Life is for Living"
Think Rationally.... but not Pragmatically (no thought is concrete - human ideas are shortsighted)....
|What Gives Me Hope
||That * GOD * is Good and Loving and Kind and True and Just and Merciful ! And that HE can, still does, and will do miracles...
We can all move onward ...
AND (of course):
* SOLOMON and * AMETHYST and * OCEAN - my lovely adult children....
* SANA - my beautiful Mokopuna [Amethyst's Daughter]....
* ONYX Salmon - He's such a nice Son [I miss Him everyday, and am slowly getting to know Him & Him to know me - He's 12yrs old now - [born - 30th October 2001, Dunedin, New Zealand], but now lives near Norwich, Norfolk, England -11,711 miles away: with His mother * LIZ Cooker (who broke my heart *twice) - She *deserted me when Onyx was 1 year old - i think due to Type2 PostNatal Depression) - And I pray-for the best for them, everyday];
PLUS - Especially*
* EMERALD - my Next Daughter, whom i pre-know (as i pre-knew Onyx's spirit/soul) - She isn't even, *conceived yet - physically* -- So SHE needs HER Mother (WHERE ARE YOU? You also "pre-know" that *our daughter awaits - so if You're HER Mother Please? Contact me About HER?)
and * YOU * give me hope too....
