We as a society are consumed with Money.The world is consumed with getting more money.We never seem to get enough of it.How many of us think about money or the lack of it in some form most of the day?Money seems to rule the world.Countries go to war over the acquisition of more money.Our safety and well being as a society is measured by how much money it will take.Children are sold into slavery for money.People sell drugs as a quick way to get a lot of money.(the real reason for the drug trade)People all around the world starve for the lack of money to get food.People die because they lack money for good health-care ,education,or the things that can make them or keep them healthy.People have been tortured so that others may keep money and therefor keep the power it infers .People kill others over Money or the lack thereof.People in government are always talking about who and what they believe in.They fight wars and torture and abuse people horribly over whose God is the true God.If a society is wealthy they say their God approves of their culture and the way they got their money.They pray to their God/Goddess to get more money so that their "needs?" can be met.When a natural disaster hits we measure it's power damage by how much money damage it caused and how much money it will take to rebuild it.We are at war right now in this country over money and the world is ruled by corporations whose only job is to acquire more money.They claim it is so that the world can be a better place but in order to do this they have to have more money.How to get it what to do with it and how to keep from losing it is all they ever think about.We get up everyday and go to work for the soulless corporations to have more money.We fight wars so that Capitalism and our interests overseas(money) will be protected,We support the stock market which gives those whose only thought is money more power.We buy goods from strangers who would and have sold their souls to/for money.Tell me when all one ever thinks about is money ,how to get more, how to keep from losing what you have, how to acquire more to get more ect. -doesn't that make money your God?These people you vote for or allow as rulers over you -would you say they have lost their soul?They claim they are Christian but the god they worship is money and the power it gives them over you.Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and all else will be added unto you.It did not say seek ye first money and all else will be added unto you.How much is enough?How much money does one Billionaire need?Why are we supporting them and their ability to get more?Why are we not supporting those that have less?We give our money to Walmart, and other name brand companies while the Mom and Pop stores go out of business.We give our money to Corporations that fund the wars on this planet.We listen to the lies of the advertisers who work for corporations, tell us what we need ,brainwash our children,and let us know we are lacking. did you know you were lacking till they told you?We support these soulless corporations in the mistaken belief that we are supporting the only jobs while we let those who work for themselves in our neighborhoods go out of business because a corporation can do it cheaper.These corporations pollute our planet, refuse to go green ,steal our natural resources ect.Why? Because of money and their greed for it and the power it confers,Money is their God.Money is a politicians God.We hear the politicians words and he/she has a PR group whose only goal is to get paid by advertising and getting this person elected for money to an office that will make them more money.They tell you what they know you want to hear and you are surprised that they once in office lied?What are your real needs and are they met? do you have a roof over your head?are you fed,clothed,and have a bathroom?Are you warm when it is cold, cool when it is hot,and in general protected from the elements?Do you have a car, or some way to get around, a job, or some source of income?Then count your blessings your needs are covered and when you pray to your Creator for more -be aware that your creator may not use money as the way for the more to come.Support those whose only intention is to provide for the needs of their family.Barter or trade- take the money you have and give it to those who have not sold their souls to the money God.It may cost more up front but in the long run you have saved much for not everything can be measured by the dollar.By doing things like this and becoming more self sufficient and getting by with less you will be sending a clear message to the soulless corporations that states loud and clear --no longer will you support them and their soul stealing Money God
Does anyone know what is in our food that 's not labeled organic?There are things in the ingredient list I cannot pronounce!I need a dictionary or wikipedia just to know what I am eating !FDA certified does NOT set my mind at ease!They have not been doing too good of a job lately.They seem far too interested in whether or not a natural substance or a vitamin can cause me harm.Excuse me?Organic food is supposed to mean the way nature made it.Organic means free of pesticides.Pesticide free is a good thing as far as I am concerned.I simply am not comfortable when the FDA or some food corporation says this:"The levels of pesticide in foods are not highenough to cause a problem to human health."Now they usually say this in regards to a SPECIFIC food.Here is an example,lets talk about mercury in tuna or our seafood.The FDA says DON"T WORRY it's only a little bit of mercury,It's not enough to cause someone harm.Then they said this Don't eat tuna but once or so a week.Excuse me?I began to wander the grocery isles thinking what is on this food, or how much pesticide is on that food, and what happens when we eat them all together?Does this stuff sit around for days in my cells or does my body store this stuff in my fat cells?Is what went in my body yesterday from the foods I ate gone now or is it still hanging around somewhere?What about all the other chemicals in all the other stuff I use everyday?Lets see;there is perfume, house cleaners ,shampoos, laundry soap,bathroom cleaners and the list grows.I am concerned one day it will be like the mad scientist chemistry set.One to many strange unknown ingredients and my body will go boom and start to break down.The people from the FDA say that cannot happen but we have no long term research for many of these things that they put on or in the food that we eat.What about all that other stuff I just said?Most of these things have only been around twenty or so years.SOOO how do they know?Lets see; since pesticides and chemicals have been introduced into our bodies the cancer rate per 1000 people has skyrocketed.This information comes from the American Cancer society. Of course that's not the words they use .I did not need them to say anything their graphs data says it all .The Cancer rate per 1000 people over the last 20 years or so has increased enormously.That's about the same amount of time they have been adding strange non-food things to our foods along with new pesticides.You know what?I do not have the time to sort all of that out-I have Kids to feed, a house to clean,errands to run ,and laundry to do.I read that organic grown food has a higher nutrition content. so lets see pure real food ,organic label ,no worries ,verses normal store bought food and suddenly I have worries.I think I will just choose simple and non complicated.I do not need wikipedia while I look at the ingredients list.That means all I have to do is choose a organic label.It's good for the environment,good for me,good for my family.It's a win,win situation.That organic label is very important.That organic label means one less complication in my life.There are enough complications in my life without worrying over what I am eating.
Things that make one go HMMMMM.Where is God ?What a great question!This is a question that has puzzled and confounded humanity for as long as there have been minds to ponder it.People have argued over this question,fought wars over this question.This question automatically inspires other questions.If there is a God; what is his or her name?Does God have a gender?If so does He /She/It care about me?Just what is God anyway?Where is God?If God exists does God want something from me?If so What?Can we communicate with God?How?If God spoke to us would we know?Many people think God is a deity that lives in a far away unseen place.Cultures from around the world have named Gods abode.Then they argued over it .They argued over name ,placement,and what it should/would look like.Humans have built Temples, Churches, raised monuments,created sacred spaces, and altars in an effort to connect with God.One thing is certain God is something that humanity believes very strongly in.Many feel that God is within each of us and all of Life.They believe God is watching over all things determining the course and causes of humanities world.Others swear God needs appeasement in some form .They feel that if God is appeased. It will feel honored and not create havoc with their lives.People have been so afraid of their God's wrath that if another culture believes in a God in a different manner, then that culture must be converted or be extinguished ,so that they would not incur Gods wrath upon their loved ones and community.They believe plagues, famine ,droughts, and all natural disasters are caused by God being displeased.Every religion ever created on this planet is about a method used to contact a divine deity people will call God.Every religion firmly believes they know where God lives.They believe that they and they alone have the only "true understanding" of the Nature of God and where He/She/It is.We have now arrived back at our point of origin.The question of all questions where is God?I do not know !Do You?I am sure that many will try to tell me what some book has said or what someone told them.But to those people I ask this question.What is your personal experience of Gods home?You know where He/She/ It lives?Point God out to me please.Can you show me where God Is?There is a group of people who will swear that there is no God .Scientist say all life is just a series of chemical reactions and called God science.Scientist thought this was pretty cool till they got to the quantum level then they had to re-evaluate everything they had ever known.Life again became a wonderful mystery.They discovered It was all connected by thought.Something with intelligence ,a sense of beauty and perfect math seemed abundant in all things.Dare they call that intelligence God?Personally for myself; I think I will just know that something wonderful created us all.Native Americans call it The Great Spirit.I call It Creator and I see it everywhere I look.I will follow My Elders statements and walk the path for myself, bothering no one else's.I will just live in harmony with the wonder around me,treating all life as if It was a good friend.I will follow my own heart .No dogma for me, I do not need it.I think I will just enjoy unraveling the mystery.Where ever God is I am quite certain of this one fact:It will let me know where it is; if I am listening.Oh by the way: Creator your handiwork is magnificent!
