The Word, are Seeds

The Word, are seeds and our bodies are the soil.  How we treat our bodies and the bodies of others, with respect, discipline and value in the gifts of our body, will exercise our ability to distinguish weeds posing as flowers.


Where was this day, Yesterday?

Conviction of the mind says, fire burns.

Conviction of the heart, says fire is a passion.

Conviction of the soul says, though fire burns, the Children of God will know a passion that does not consume and shines a light that cannot reveal mystery because it shines from a light of its own making.

If the truth hurts then…

20160508_160642

Words can nourish the body, fortify emotion and free the soul if they are one with the truth and the central premise to truth is that which contributes to the sustainability of life.  

I know there are people who boast that “the truth hurts,” believing that the hurt is evidence of truth, but the hurt is only evidence of “A” truth.  The only reason “A” truth hurts is because a partial truth is used to contradict another partial truth.  Partial truths benefit one person who will aggressively sew doubt with the desire to obtain worship with intimidation and to enslave; and thus a hurt.  “The” Truth are words that nourishes the body, beautifies the mind, and sets the soul free and does this simultaneously with a will to benefit all, not just self. 

There is no coincidence that truth can be analogous with ‘the fruit of the vine’ because a good fruit provides nourishment to the body, its sweetness bring joy and with a little passion and heat can give us a glimpse of the spirit within that is free.  If a statement is known as true but hurts and brings resentment, then it is a partial truth.  But if a statement nourishes as it brings joy and helps us understand our spiritual life, simultaneously, then that is The Truth.
