As we seek power… Part one.

It has been a while since I have written here, and I know that that is NOT because of a lack of Divine inspiration, or topics (there have been many many topics). As I have continued my journey, life brought changes I my life which began to take more of my time, yet God never stopped presenting me with example and information that is still necessary to share with you and the world.

One to which is the primary topic of this writing for I started to meditate on why I even do this blog thing. Did I start this because I truly wanted to share with the people of God the interpretations of what God has shared with me in an effort to bring people closer to God through this ministry that I am ONLY an instrument of? Or, was it because I wanted to passively gain POWER over those who read and lovingly manipulate the minds and thinking of the people through an illusion of knowledge and insightful worlds and phrases? Yes, I do check myself like that.

I will answer that question later… For now, let us discuss the term, POWER. In the light of the events that have befallen this nation and the countries abroad, we see that the struggle for power is on a great upswing. Racial tensions, the slew of injustices and taking of lives have all contributed to the desire for power over our thoughts and actions. Now here’s where it gets disturbing; EVERYTHING that man has done up to THIS point in history has been for the desire of POWER… There hasn’t been one thing that man as a whole has been involved in that wasn’t intended to gain POWER, and yet the struggle continues because it is still elusive to us. From the time of Adam, when Eve was tempted in the garden, the enemy played upon this desire for it saw it in them and KNEW it was the easiest way to place us upon the path to destruction (Genesis ch.3:vs.1-5).

This lust for POWER is something that begins at a young age; when a child has a toy or something of conceived ‘value‘ and another child comes along and wants to share in its wonder or beauty, the one who holds it may become selfish, keeping the toy out of the other child’s reach. Now when the child begins to cry, or show any form of emotion as a result of this, the child CONTROLLING (key to this) the situation will either do one of two things: show compassion because of the pain that it has brought forth and thus share the toy, OR taste the POWER that it thinks it has over the other child and seek more. This behavior is thus learned from a young age and carried throughout adulthood for ALL OF US.

The desire for POWER has spawned many children which are confused as being singular factors in man’s plight and will be broken down in detail in later posts, yet what I will do is list a few symptoms that have spawned from this beast that we ALL at one time or another have allowed to take a bite from us, or even devoured our whole existence:

  • Entertainment
  • Industrialism
  • Racism (A review)
  • Religion (From the avid bible shaker, to the unyielding atheist)
  • Technology

Stay tuned….

Focus point- The imprisoned thought

20140118-102447.jpg

The truth is that man’s desire for ultimate power over EVERYTHING has caused it to become mentally incarcerated by its own lusts. This has been a great and consistent issue since man has inhabited the earth and to this day, has further increased with each passing generation. Man binds itself tightly with the illusion of power and has placed much energy into capitalism as the proof of this.

Man wants all that it can never truly have, yet has created a world that is based on great and powerful illusions that those of us accept more and more with each technological innovation, each industrial breakthrough, each medical advancement and social explosion that usually derives from someone’s need to be admired, accepted, or followed by a mass of mental and emotional inmates who have been tried and convicted; not necessarily by others outside of themselves, to spend a lifetime of unfulfilled existence in the shadow of another’s misguided delusions.

We THINK as caged beasts waiting for the next scrap that will inform us what is popular, cool, socially acceptable, more powerful, faster, bigger, stronger, new and improved, enhanced or re-introduced as new. We see God as the fantasy and accept the rest as all there is because we have been thoroughly tricked into believing that this is it and there is no more. We don’t know, don’t want to know and have became used to the mind shackles that drag us further to our destruction.

Are we just sleep, or comatose, or half dead??? I think that each level mentioned is based on our level of understanding and acceptance. We are all prisoners in one area, yet free in others. For instance, I admit that I am bound by technology, yet am not in any way interested in reality television. My vice to technology is by choice, and like so many others, I have accepted the chains and convinced myself that they are either insignificant, not hurting anyone, or just not that bad. It is the Willie Lynch Syndrome gone awry (don’t know about the teachings of Willie Lynch? Take a moment to look it up)!

This is something that has been passed on like a plague for generations and we are continually expanding the facility of our inner confinement to unfounded levels. As long as we desire an outer freedom that we can control, we will further sacrifice the true freedom within ourselves.
