Do you ever feel you have been screwed over? If you don’t, you are either a liar or not paying close attention. Earth life is about being pounded down. With unconscious people, they blame it on the world, on other people, on their sorry little selves.
But as you age, you realize that life is not screwing you over—the God of Transformation is. You know Him, the one with giant hands that reach down and throw the events of your life onto the Parchesi Board of Confusion.
You cry out, “O Lord, of the little black cup that holds the dice, why don’t you throw me a winning move?” And nothing happens.
People will issue Pollyanna phrases that sicken you. They are happy; you are not. What the hell is wrong with this picture? Nothing. The world is not where we should be living. We should be living in full awareness that we are the universe.
Once we realize that, things have a chance of changing for the better. You take up your cross and follow Him. Not down the yellow brick road, either.
We can’t win in the kingdom of earth; God never told us that. But I am usually wrong.
I think you should skip over this note and right into Paradise, but evidently that ain’t the plan. Part of the problem is that we are too quick to declare our heroes. Like the cop gone bad in the news recently. You are hopelessly naive if you let the media tell you who your heroes are.
No one but God is good and even He can throw a pretty mean punch. I write this as one of His children and now I am gonna go find my mat and take an nap.
