Design Your Life

305419_238545876195665_715985511_n (1)We grow up learning the basics about arithmetic and alphabets to understand how to manage numbers and words but we never learn to truly manage life.

What does it mean to love God, to believe, or to have faith. For so many these cliches are just that. I believe that we must design our lives. We must have patterns and plans which all have one purpose, “Fulfillment.”

My design for my life has saved me, so I will share it with you.

First: I remember to live my life as if no-one was watching. This is soo liberating, because the decisions I make for my life never have “what will other people think” attached to it.

I don’t feel the need to pretend that everything is perfect, if it is rotten I’ll let you know. When things are bad I call it as it is, so my friends and family know, I will not cover it up.

Second: I have faith. What does faith mean. Well traditionally, we have thought that faith meant if you believe you will see; but I’ve discovered that faith is truly the evidence of what you haven’t seen.

If you think about what happened yesterday, there is a memory. Maybe you lost someone or spent time somewhere. You may not have access to this person or place in your present time, but you can access that experience through your memories. The future is just as accessible. You go to bed anticipating the rising sun, why. You wake up “expecting” one thing or another and access these things without realizing that this too is simple faith. If you relax a little bit, you realize that your future is just as accessible. Then you start to live at peace within the rhythm and cycle of the anticipated events.

Now let’s get to the design part.

Money is only symbolic, it is used to supplement faith, so you believe that you will buy a million dollar mansion, because you “have” a million dollars; but what if you didn’t “have” a million dollars. Then the future reality would be so incredible, that it would build in your present tense a state of faith. How much money you have does not dictate anything else, but your confidence in what you do. So I never make any decision based on how much it is going to cost.

I believe that “If God is for me no-one can come against me.” That no weapons formed against me can ever prosper and that every disappointment is truly a blessing. So I don’t try to push myself anywhere. I have lived happily for the last 5 years without a monthly pay check or any type of government assistance. Somehow I believe that God wants me to be somewhere or do something and it is always like crossing the Red Sea. I live by faith and that is more than millions of dollars.

So this is my life, Like my home, my garden or my closet. I try to imagine how things should fit. I start with all the good things I need to keep around especially people.

Some people are unfortunately weeds. I pull them out, others just don’t fit with my style.

Finally: Faith relies on honesty, so all the other steps can fall in place. You must acknowledge the future good or bad. If you’re worried about what people will say, they’re probably already saying it. If you’re worried about anything at all your biggest fears will be realized. Because worry is faith, it is your confirmation that what you will experience in the future isn’t going to be positive. You have the opportunity in the present to confront it. Relax and make the future what you want to see. Find the people who will help realize it with you, because reality is nothing but an agreement between people.

Now design your life, think of all the beautiful people in it who complement the life you want to live. Think about the way you want to live and then try to find the where. You are God’s vessel on the Earth. He wants to be happy at peace, in love, in good spirits. He can not worry about anything because after all he is God. Let go and let the master of the universe direct your path. No matter what you’re facing it’s not the end of the world.

Be happy and use caution when pulling out the weeds.

In case you haven’t realized I love music; and this is my latest obsession: Why you gotta be so Rude. Relax

 

What’s in your Eye?

I listened to a pastor preaching the other day about excess and couldn’t help but cringe. First this pastor  and his wife both drive the latest model luxury SUV. They can afford private school for 6 children and multiple vacations a year. They have a chef and live in help for the home and nanny services and his wife has a personal trainer. On the day in question he drives up the street followed by his wife in another vehicle and passes by a poor carpenter on his way to church. As he rolls by the carpenter he glances at the man’s shirt and notices that he is wearing some expensive cuff links. The pastor became so incensed by the man’s attire that he spent the entire sermon on adornment. He even noted that “by the amount people return to God you must wonder if they are not robbing God to flash up themselves.

This man bought his “knock off” links at the Chinese store for only $10.00, but the pastor had seen a similar one at his expensive designer store for about $500. The poor carpenter couldn’t afford a fraction of the luxuries of his pastor, but yet the little he did have was offensive to him.

Sometimes we are so out of touch with the daily struggles of our neighbors; and as I am writing about the pastor I include my self. When I moved back to St.Lucia a few years ago I realized that a poor neighbor would take the city bus everyday for no significant reason. I explained that she could save so much money if she consolidated her trips and made one trip or two each week. She rejected my advice and I immediately reasoned that the next time she asked me for money I would tell her off. After hearing the pastor condemn the poor man I compared myself to him. I didn’t have as much as he did, but I still had much more than my neighbor. After all, I traveled by plane every year and one could suggest that this was excessive too. The point is, keep your eyes focused on what you’re doing. Sometimes we read stories and receive sermons for other people. We’re constantly thinking of who other than ourselves some instruction, condemnation or admonition should apply to. We forget that “Therefore now there is no condemnation,” Romans 8 we forget that: For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall bejudged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.Matthew 7:2

Furthermore be reminded and respectful of the anointing of others. for who can stretch forth his hand against the Lord’s anointed, and be guiltless? 1 Samuel 26:9

The distortion of the Foundation of Science.

Today many believers in God or a creative force behind our universe, seem to be at war with science and scientists. Most would be shocked to discover that Scientists developed in quite the same way that Baptists, Adventists and other christian doctrines did. All of these variations stemmed from a disagreement with the Catholic interpretations or distortions of scripture. As the body of Christ grew it began to do what every living thing does. It began to differentiate into various concentrations; and our founding Scientists were concerned with “How” God created the world. While most other religions concentrated on the moral blue print outlined in the Bible, scientists set out to discover the actual mechanics behind the created world.

The extraordinary accomplishment of these theists was later harnessed by atheists to attack the church and the belief in God. The very terms of these theistic founders were then used against the faithful. Atheism thrives today simply because we have not connected the foundation of science back to the church and the invaders continue to masquerade as intellectuals speaking in tongues. They speak an obscured language with terminology construed to deter the faithful.

Roger_Taylor

Today it is almost impossible to distinguish between an academic scholar and a religious official in their ceremonious gown.

I wonder how many of us know how the scientific doctrine was formed.

Guess who said and did what?

1. Atheism every way seems to be combined with folly and ignorance, seeing nothing can be more justly allotted to fools, than the saying that there is no God.

Hint: this is the founder of Scientific doctrine and the proponent of a very popular term which many atheist have taken on “Reason.”

Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626)

2. “The Big Bang theory”

This theory was first proposed by Catholic Priest Georges Lemaître, (1894-1966)

Charles Darwin Anglican priest.

This led James Maxwell to prophesize that
In Science, it is when we take some interest in the great discoverers and their lives that it becomes endurable, and only when we begin to trace the development of ideas that this becomes fascinating.
James Clerk Maxwell.. electrodynamics
Consequently there is not a scientist who has made any remarkable impact on science which lacked a foundation in theology. Even Darwin himself was a theology student and an Anglican priest.
All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter. Anybody who has been seriously engaged in scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance to the gates of the temple of science are written the words: Ye must have faith. It is a quality which the scientist cannot dispense with.
Max Planck (Planck’s constant, Planck time and length, Quantum Mechanics)
In the period of great enlightenment emerged many true priests of science learning to read the book of creation. Among them Max Planck a renowned German scientist eloquently directed a generation to the force behind his genius. Planck continued in the paths of Newton and Bacon among other pioneers believing that both traditional religion and

natural science required a belief in God for their activities, to the former he is the starting point, and to the latter the goal of every thought process. To the former He is the foundation, to the latter, the crown of the edifice of every generalized world view.

If we don’t research our foundation it is very easy for our enemies to hijack it as their own. This is the central thesis of the Bible. The devil attempts to take over heaven. Now you know how the story begun fast forward to the end and the great book tells us

This message and preaching is not with wise and persuasive words,
but with a demonstration of the SPIRIT’S POWER,
so that your faith might not rest on any man’s wisdom, but on God’s power.
We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.
No, we spe

 

 

ak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.
None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not continue to crucify the Lord of glory. However, as it is written: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”
but God has revealed it here by his Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:4-16

1 Corinthians: 1:25-29
Not many wise, mighty,or noble are called. But God has chosen the foolish of the world to put to shame the wise, the weak to put to shame the mighty and the base and despised he has chosen, those which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in his presence.

Ironically the bible speaks of theirs as a wisdom which is coming to nothing.

 

 

My trip to Sacramento, CA 6/6-6/9

%%wppa%% %%slide=3%% %%align=center%%

After visiting Medgar University in April, I received an invitation to take part in the Sacramento Book fair in CA. Sorry I really didn’t get a chance to take more photos. The trip was a mixture of disappointment and exhilaration. I was disappointed in CA, I guess I expected to meet the producers and directors; but that’s the next step. One step at a time and it will all be worth it.

It was nearly impossible to take photos of myself while working, and so many shots were terrible.

Here are some other links.
