25 things that make you happier

In a recent study from psychologists at UC Davis, researchers had 3 groups of volunteers keep weekly journals focused on a single topic. While one group wrote about major events that had happened that week, the second group wrote about hassles they’d experienced, and the last group wrote about things they were grateful for.

Ten weeks later, those in the gratitude-journal group reported feeling more optimistic and more satisfied with their lives than those in any of the other groups and reported fewer physical symptoms of discomfort, from runny noses to headaches.

Put An Ice Cube On This Point Of Your Neck And Witness The Miracle

Obedience is not only NOT “good intentions” and/or “good works” but it is [in the exercising of our faith and trust in the Father] the purest form of love we can show Him [in this earth], and the very catalyst for His love to “continually” be shed abroad in our heart – SO THAT it might continually be poured out towards Him and, also, upon all those who cross our path [through our obedience to God on their behalf].

This is a very important topic as far as one’s entrance into the “fullness” of true Kingdom-living. Many still attempt to try and get God to do something for them [in their own strength and understanding – and on their “own” terms {which of course is not “faith” or obedience at all} – perhaps as the result of what it took to “get something” from their earthly parents] when, in reality, it is already “done” [looked after by Him Who knows “the end from the beginning”] in the spiritual realm by our loving Father.

The “good works” which “God prepared beforehand” [from before the foundations of the earth] in Ephesians 2:10 refers to the reality that our path has already been layed out [in Christ] – our task then is to obey in even the smallest details [as a matter of fact it is learning to be faithful in those “small details” that will empower us to be found faithful in the “larger things” {and they will be LARGE!} that are about to manifest – hence the intense and very long refining process the remnant Church has experienced] KNOWING that, as we do, we will just simply walk out [both now – and in the fullness of time] ALL that we were created for, in Christ and, in the process, appropriate EVERY blessing [financial and otherwise] that was “uniquely” prepared for each of us from before the foundations of the earth.

This is the beauty [and simplicity] of the true Christian life: we are called to gain a revelation of the Father’s Will [Word] by drawing near to Him and, THEN, in gaining that revelation, simply trust a PERFECTLY trustworthy God – thus allowing Him to unfold things in HIS perfect order. Of course, there is the Enemy and the soulish attachments that are a bane [poison, hindrance] to one pursuing the Will of God with ALL of their heart but God is faithful to finish the work that He began in us and bring us through to the end – again, perfectly. These days [even years] of intense preparation will SURELY be found worthwhile [both now and throughout Eternity] – and that is a vast understatement for sure!

The Word of the Lord over you these next nine days

May 26, 2015

“I am calling you close. I am your (El Elyon) Lord God Most High and I am causing my blessings to overtake your circumstances in these days before you. Get ready because everything that has tried to hold captive your dreams, arrest your development and keep you from fulfilling all that I have placed in you is about to be dismantled and removed. For my wisdom shall flow from you like a river that cannot be held back or dried up with silence. It will cover those who are willing to hear and obey my word of release in this season.”

“As I release great liberty, you will no longer feel confined. Your previous captivity has had to do with how others felt about you and your own perception of what you thought was necessary to do to be accepted. You are who you are and you can no longer be contained in others evaluation of you. For I chose you, fashioned you and you are accepted as my beloved. I made you and formed in you greatness and now as you draw nigh the increase in you will pour out living waters into others and quench the thirst that has fallen so heavily upon many.”

“So gaze upon the overflow and watch how these waters will flow onto all the dry places that surround you. You will speak under the anointing and call those things be not as though they were and they will become. For I have stored wealth within thy members and you will flourish and others will be increased. For I have already determined your outcome for it is rich, bountiful and full of fruit, says the Lord. Laugh, Be joyful, Sing praises to my name.”

Isaiah 35:6
Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.

Isaiah 44:3
For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.

Isaiah 58:11
The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

This startup has an algorithm that finds discount flight tickets ‘hidden’ on airline websites 

Some of these flights can be priced 50% to 90% lower than those booked via a regular flight ticket, according to Lucie Bresova, the CFO of the Czech Republic-based Skypicker. Skypicker is a flight-booking app that blew our minds when Business Insider discovered it on a visit to Prague last week.

May 23rd ACCELERATION AND MULTIPLICATION Words of prophecy:

* The love and wisdom abiding within My faithful ones shall “draw” like a powerful magnet all those I have called to be with them in this final hour – according to My Will and purpose [divine connections].

* As I raise up “divine connections” on every level in this most glorious hour I shall fuse them together as one by My Spirit, and there shall be a great and exponential increase in the anointings abiding within them – both individually and corporately.

* From this moment forth, My beloved ones, there shall be an exponential increase in “divine connections”!

….”And above all these [put on] love and enfold yourselves with the bond of perfectness [which binds everything together completely in ideal harmony]”…. Colossians 3:14 The Amplified Translation ….

“More and more there were being added to the Lord those who believed [those who acknowledged Jesus as their Savior and devoted themselves to Him joined and gathered with them], crowds both of men and of women”…. Acts 5:14 The Amplified Translation ….

“For we are God’s [own] handiwork [His workmanship], recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined [planned beforehand] for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]”…. Ephesians 2:10 The Amplified Translation …

.”Thus says the Lord GOD, ‘None of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed’ declares the Lord GOD”…. Ezekiel 12:28 NASB Over a period of time [particularly over the past few years] the Father has been making many key “divine connections” [in the midst of those who are truly seeking Him] with a view to the perfect preparation for those things that are about to manifest in the physical realm. Even though much of this work “seems” [up until this time] to have been done in the place of “obscurity” the end result [fruit] will now begin to be revealed as the Glorious Church “takes legs”.

The Father is about to connect those “connections” with “certain” others that He has ordained and this will produce an “explosion” [the spontaneous fruit of true unity and one accord] throughout the Body of Christ [both spiritually and financially] heretofore, unseen! This acceleration and “multiplication” will continue right to the end of the age – causing the Glory of God to be released to a continually greater degree with each passing day through a holy people. Let us continually be found both seeking and receiving [in obedience] the Father’s “best” on every front in this season for it is certain that these are the days wherein every “true” [to His Will] heart-desire [vision – dream] will begin to unfold rapidly and in perfect order – according to His highest purpose, and to His greatest Glory.

Currents of Love: The Small and Great Secrets of an Embrace

“Intimacy is one of the most elementary human needs. Its shortage deteriorates, its wealth nourishes human soul. One of the most beautiful expression of intimacy is when two people embrace each other. This wonderful human gesture is a store of great secrets. What are the secrets of embrace? Embrace has a smaller and a greater secret.”

A SERIES OF SUPERNATURAL “CHAIN REACTIONS” SHALL BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE IN THE LIVES OF ALL THOSE WHO TRULY LOVE [OBEY] GOD Words of prophecy: * This season shall bring forth the manifestation of the “fullness” of the office of the apostle and, because of this, every other office of the five-fold ministry shall begin to reach its “full manifestation” in the remnant Church throughout the nations. This shall not only begin a “rapid” birth and expansion of all five offices [ministry gifts] within the congregations of the righteous, it will cause [as in a supernatural “chain reaction” – a “domino effect”] all those whose heart is wholly given to Me to enter into the fullness of their Kingdom-position – as they “partake” of the “special anointings” upon those I have sent to them for their edification. ….” you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being and with all your might”…. Deuteronomy 6:5 The Amplified Translation ….”Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight”…. Proverbs 3:5-6 NASB

1. TRUE SPIRITUAL ENVIRONMENTS WILL BE ESTABLISHED – BEGINNING WITH ONE’S INDIVIDUAL OBEDIENCE CONCERNING THE “INNER CHAMBER”: – These “true” spiritual environments will be places wherein one is found “far above” both the wiles and the destructive attacks of the Evil One. The establishment of EVERY true spiritual environment – both individually and corporately – begins with obedience in one’s individual walk concerning the “inner chamber”. This allows the Father to establish His perfect positioning for that obedient one – day in and day out [again, both individually and corporately]. – These “true” spiritual environments will be places both ordered and sustained by “revelation knowledge” – without exception. – These “true” spiritual environments [from the cities of refuge will be established to the schools of the Holy Spirit] will be places that shall be found to be “impenetrable” in any way in the days ahead, by any “force” that has its origin apart from God’s Word [Will] and the Holy Spirit – both individually and corporately!

Insanely Good Software: Know Brainer 2015

If you know what a macro is, then you’ll be able to imagine how useful a voice-activated macro could be.

I’ll give two examples of things you can do solely with your voice, using Know Brainer …

The first is in a business setting:

(1) start the timer on your billing software

(2) Say “client is Tom Smith”, so that Smith’s client information is entered in the billing software

(3) switch your screen to your email account

(4) search through all of your emails for messages from Tom Smith

(5) verbally scroll up and down until you find the email you want to respond to

(6) dictate a reply to that email

(7) have your reply read out loud to you, to make sure you got it right

(8) check a figure in your reply by searching for a file on your computer

(9) search that file for a specific word or phrase

(10) once you’ve confirmed the figure, send your email to Smith

(11) print a copy of the email for your files, automatically billing Smith for the copies

(12) stop the timer on your billing software

The second is in an artistic setting:

(1) say “equalize” to adjust the equalization on your recording equipment to your favorite level

(2) say “boost bass”, to boost the bass range of sound for the song you’re editing

(3) say “isolate drums” to listen to just the drum track

(4) say “add echo” to add echo to the drum track

(5) say “wave” to bring up the waveform editing software

(6) say “isolate vocals” to listen to just the vocal track

(7) say “add fifth” to add a high harmony a fifth of an octave above the main vocal track

(8) say “finalize” to render a final version of the song on digital media

(9) say “announce” to upload a copy of the song on your blog, and tweet out an announcement of the song to your fans

Know Brainer is totally customizable, and you can even dictate the macros to start with.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

For, this is the time of the growing up of My people; the perfecting of My saints. This is the time for you to come into what I have called you to be. This is the time to enjoy the journey that I have prepared for you. This is the time to walk with Me on that journey. Great joy and great peace shall be yours in this season if you will walk with Me, says the Lord.

“Many of you will experience a SUDDENLY! You will look around you and say, “Where has my enemy gone?” It will be as if you are in a dream because you will be loosed from your captors. Not only will your enemy be like dust but you will receive full recompense for all that has been lost.”

“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.”   Isaiah 61:7

The Light Responds to the Dark

After it seemed that the darkness had all but exhausted their cruelty, it was time for the light army to take a turn. Their weapon of choice was also their words.

But, oh what words they used!

Choosing their words quite intentionally, these great warriors understood the power of the words they used and the effectiveness they possessed. Starting slowly, they swiftly gained momentum, for they well knew the superior nature of their weapons.


They were possessed by the power of the Father’s love, for He had equipped them with immeasurably powerful weapons that would literally change the world.
The Father armed His soldiers with a tidal wave of His love – He had drowned them in it. Then He drowned them again, only to repeat it until they were completely enveloped by it.

As they were infused by His great love, He transformed all the previous efforts by the enemy to destroy their destiny. All the wounds and insecurities were turned into armor to protect them – they were prepared for war!

Truly, their words carried the weight of the Father as if their words originated in Heaven, and were felt immediately by the hearer. The blessings of the Father were suddenly made tangible and had the power to strip the dark of its grip and bring light to even the most wrathful person. These warriors had been prepared by the Father for this day.

Again and again, the words of the army of light were catapulted over to the enemy’s captives held in darkness. Words of light – love, peace, and joy – landed with great brilliance on the heads of those held captive by the darkness, and they had a breathtaking effect on the receiver.

Launching the strength and power of Heaven into the darkness, it seemed to paralyze its targets at first. Then, slowly, it began to melt away the anger they felt, turning it into glorious peace and remorse. Penetrating the darkness, their words expelled the lies of the enemy and healed the wounds entangling them.Truly, darkness did not have a chance against the power of the Light.

As you can imagine, with the light army’s superior weaponry increased by the authority of the Father, it would seem this war would more greatly resemble a massacre of the powers of darkness than a true war. Indeed, it was play time to God, and He’s been excited to finally share it with His beloved children.

Building an Army

For years, the Father has watched as the weight of doubt has bombarded your faith. He’s watched as you’ve faithfully fought against it, and your endurance through the battle has pleased Him more than words can say.

Truly, He’s seen how you’ve been treated and belittled by those who should know better, but there is a victory in it, you dear one. For, the greatest buildings need a very firm foundation, and the most essential soldiers need intensive training. That is what He’s been building in you – His mighty warrior!

He will start by awakening His Bride and preparing her for war by bathing her in His love. She will no longer look the same. She will speak with the tongue of His Spirit, and the darkness will indeed shudder.

But, the renewal of His saints will only be the beginning, because when they are prepared He will bring home the prodigals.

The Father loves His prodigals; they are His secret weapon, and ours as well. Truly powerful, the prodigals know the secrets of His heart and also the secrets of the lost. They are the bridge that will link the two together.

Even without the tangible benefits of my letter campaign, I’d definitely keep it up. It’s one of the simplest ways you can strengthen a professional tie.”

“Almost anyone is fair game—a person in the office next to you, a person in the office across the world from you, a former co-worker, your current boss, an intern who’s been extra helpful, someone who’s doing great things in your industry, an inspiring speaker or author; I could go on and on.”

Do not EVER allow yourself to be discouraged [disheartened] only KNOW that your loving Father goes [and has already gone] to great lengths to ensure your perfect protection, preparation and provision for your carrying out the “fullness” of the ministry that He has called you to and anointed you for – and, also, that He is faithful [trustworthy] to finish the work that He has begun in you.”

“It’s one thing to excel on the fields of play; win titles, make the deciding score or… triumph in the world of business or the arts. To influence others to be better than they might have been and to be a part of some fundamental change in the human heart is to be valued far above any of these other things. You can’t always tell what your impact on life might have been and this is especially hard to see when you are in crisis periods or when you have fallen miserably away from your primary intention and… it happens. It surely does. True humility is one of the most underrated assets that a person can possess and one only acquires it by contact with something infinitely greater than oneself.”

How to Travel Around the World With Just a 20lb Backpack

“Merino wool is an amazing material. It has great flow and insulation properties (it will keep you warm when it’s cold outside and cool when it’s hot outside), it dries quickly, it has high odor resistance (you can go longer before washing), it’s not bulky or itchy, and unlike cotton it will still keep you warm if it gets wet.”

“Some of my favorite adventures and stories were unplanned and happened organically because I wasn’t tied down by large amounts of luggage”

“In Petra, Jordan I met a merchant selling souvenirs and she invited me stay with her and her family in their 2000-year-old cave. I ate dinner, played card games, chatted over candle light, and slept there. I was carrying everything I owned with me, so I didn’t have to worry about all of my luggage back at the hostel being safe when I didn’t come back.”

ALL that the Father establishes in the midst of His people is eternal in nature
– and what this basically means is that everyone who is connected NOW in the
Glorious [remnant] Church to carry out the true work of the Kingdom will rule and reign “together” with Jesus in the Millennial Kingdom.

“… it is to be
“maintained” supernaturally by the love of God abiding within the faithful heart –
FOREVER. ”

Not only is EVERY “divine connection” initially to be established by the
Holy Spirit, alone, [no matter what form that connection takes] it is to be
“maintained” supernaturally by the love of God abiding within the faithful heart –
FOREVER.

12 Ways to Rebuild Your Life and Make it Ridiculously Amazing

1. Make a commitment to yourself

I (name),

Make a commitment to myself,

To spend so much time improving myself and my life that I have no time for worry,  judgement, criticism, whining and complaining;

To forgive, release and let go of my attachment to any past struggles and allow every challenge life sends my way to make me better not bitter.

Starting now, I make a commitment to let go of what’s behind me and start appreciating what’s in front of me;

To let go of all the pointless drama, all the toxic relationships, thoughts and behaviors that are present in my life and to constantly shift my focus from the bad on to the good;

To make room in my heart for love, happiness, peace and tranquility and to create my life from a place of infinite choices and possibilities – the present moment, and no longer from a place of limitations – the past.

I commit to staying true to myself at all times and to never betray myself just so I can please other people.

I commit myself to give up on toxic thought, behaviors and relationships but never on myself and my dreams.

Starting now and starting today, I will  begin rebuilding my life and to make it ridiculously amazing.

Sincerely,
(name)

Once you truly commit to rebuilding your life and making it ridiculously amazing, nothing and no one will be able to stand in your way.

No.6: Dalmatian Jasper

Time to bring fun and humor back into your life! If you chose this crystal, the little voice within is screaming ‘lets play again’. Perhaps you have been feeling down, disillusioned, worried or a little cynical. The Dalmatian Jasper reminds us that we are spiritual souls having a physical experience. We only have so many years on this planet before returning to energy form, so let’s enjoy it!!. Even the worst of situations can be brightened by humor – if not for your own sake, then for those around you. Sense of humor binds families and friends. It helps us cope with difficulties at the very instant we are laughing. It sends a message to the world, and the Universe, that I will not be fazed and I will win the day.
Additional: Dalmatian jasper is an anti-smoking crystal – for those with a niggling thought to give up cigarettes, consider this a cosmic order to do so!

No.2 Green Malachite

If you are attracted to this stone, you are (or are about) to go through a major life transformation. This transformation may be practical, changing the way you live and work, but it also goes much deeper. It is about spiritual evolution, energy blockages in your mind and body from past experiences being untangled and released. You are becoming wiser and in the process learning to truly value yourself. You may find the process unsettling, initially you become more aware of what you don’t want, rather than what you do. That’s fine. First we must acknowledge the need for change, only then can we start to look for alternatives. Malachite is the stone of prosperity and abundance, when you start to look up, luck and fortune are waiting. It can signify the end of destructive romantic relationships and the dawn of pure love. By picking this stone you are unconsciously telling the Universe, ‘I am ready for success. I am ready to lose the negativity. I am ready to be passionate about my life’.

“There is something that you have long wanted to be a part of, or get yourself more involved with. You have long been telling yourself, too, that for various reasons the time isn’t right. But no matter what reluctance you may feel, you should understand that this truly is a year of opportunity for you. And earning opportunities, particularly of the kind and size that are presenting themselves in your life now, deserve to be seized. Just as you will surely soon seize yours.”  (Aquarius)

“But you know, so few of us are comfortable with the way we are. We’re angry with men, disappointed in them, and chronically dissatisfied. I do believe we can begin a process within ourselves of return, and I think it’s time. The balance is shifting. It’s becoming safe to love them. Patriarchy has run its course and the collapse of it ain’t pretty! Remember, the guy across the room did not create this system – he’s a prisoner of this matrix just like you are.”

“And then the most amazing thing happened… I actually felt/saw energy pulse from my heart center and enter a man in his heart center. The polarities recognized each other! Soft on the outside strong on the inside feminine energy mingled with strong on the outside soft on the inside masculine energy. I didn’t say anything in that moment, but I thought… that’s what love is – it’s a force of energy! On the inside I felt a delicious softness and receptivity that I knew was feminine – it felt like coming home.”

Unconventional thinkers are the most valuable players of any startup, so Thiel starts looking for them at the very first interview. He always asks, “What important truth do very few people agree with you on?”

Of course, most answers he gets are pretty predictable. “There is no God,” is a popular one, as is “America is not exceptional.” But a few dozen unremarkable responses are worth it because this question is ace at sussing out unconventional minds. It shows whether the candidate is able to adopt a different perspective of the present, which, according to Thiel, is “as close as we can come to looking into the future.” This question incites heterodoxy–thinking that is counter to the status quo–which is exactly what Thiel wants. Only a person who can think outside of convention, he explains, can change it.

The people who surprise you with their answer to this question–the bomb builders and the cryogenics enthusiasts of the world–are the types you want on your team. Asking a question that invites them to say something unpopular is a good litmus test.

Google as an Arm of the Surveillance State

“Google makes no secret of the fact that it “analyzes content” in emails sent and received by users of its Gmail service, mostly for purposes of targeting advertising to users most likely to click thru and buy things. That’s how Google makes money — tracking users of its “free” services, watching what they do, selling those users’ eyeballs to paying customers.”

“It’s also understood by most that Google will, as its privacy policy states, “share personal information … [to] meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.”

“But there’s a pretty large gap between “we’ll let the government look at your stuff if they insist” and “we’ll keep an eye out for stuff that the government might want to see.” The latter, with respect to privacy, represents the top of a very slippery slope.”

WALKING BY REVELATION IN ALL THINGS

* I am preparing a holy people in the secret place of His Presence – a people
who refuse to live or move or have their being apart from Christ [a “revelation” of
My Will].


….”For in Him [Christ] we live and move and have our being [entire
existence]”…. Acts 17:28a The Amplified Translation


….”put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in
regard to its lusts [desires]”…. Romans 13:14 NASB


….”and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live [choose]
for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf”…. 2
Corinthians 5:15 NASB


….”But seek [aim at and strive after, in the power of the Holy Spirit] first of
all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right]”….
Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation


If one’s heart is “wholly given” to the Father and His highest purposes – and,
thus, is found “seeking first the Kingdom” [and to be righteously motivated in all
things] – they will be found walking by “revelation” in ALL things.

A “SPIRIT OF REPROACH” DEFILES GREATLY!

Words of prophecy:
* When the Enemy attacks one of My children through a vessel [or vessels] of
reproach [persecution] a “spirit of provocation” will soon follow in an attempt to
get them to take offense [in a spirit of self-justification] at what has been said
and/or done to them.
“reproach” – to charge with or blame for something; ungodly rebuke; the
expression of disapproval; adverse or hostile criticism; unrighteous judgement;
“provoke” – to stir up or call forth [feelings, desires, or activity]; to incite; to cause
to act or behave in a certain manner [in this case, to speak or act apart from Love];
to anger, enrage, exasperate, or vex;

“Among Washington’s most unsavory allies could be counted the unelected hereditary regime of Saudi Arabia, the homophobic, violent mobs of Thaksin Shinawatra in Thailand, and of course Al Qaeda who has been serving America’s geopolitical agenda since the 1980’s when it first gathered the sectarian extremists together as a mercenary army to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Today the global terror enterprise is fighting on NATO’s behalf in Libya, Syria, Egypt, and southern Russia. “

I think I got it, finally:  Al Qaeda is NATO, and “the artist formerly known as Blackwater” is the GOP.  The dems are too blackmail-compromised  to look up, as they frantically thumb through their rolodexes.  “State of America, as I see it.  With implications world-wide.”

The CIA are whores, one and all, and they’re very mean.  BUT, they don’t have access to the same toys as the NSA  (and besides, people tell them what to do all the time and the NSA gets to do whatever it wants and…piss and moan…) and the NSA has the dirt on them anyway.  FBI is on the beat and wants to play with the big boys but they just can’t seem to pull up their big-boy-pants.  They require exceptional propaganda, so they set up photo-ops.  To maintain funding they must demonstrate their value.  They do in fact, demonstrate their value.  The new Kingdom does not value snuff-films or sting-shows.  The troopers boy, Johnny-on-the-money.  I am no longer personally offended by the romper-room antics of state-level wannabes.  I’m moving beyond amusement as well.  STUPID boys with badges.   “God forgive them, please.”

“Dear NSA, my agency of protection.  I am documentedly more aware of your capabilities than the average target.  The universe has revealed all the evidence I require to expound ever more of my story.  I don’t have my tons of notebooks organized yet, but so far my case consists of  a two-year-detailed notarized affidavit, a published book, Zuckerberg’s records, a substantial blog and two stuffed Evernote accounts whose passwords change frequently on their own volition.   I am very eager to tell the tale and any suggestions of venue would be appreciated.”  4 or 5.

“Dear Jesus, please have mercy on General Keith Alexander and all his lying horde.  Do not cause him to suffer as he has caused suffering for so many others.  Draw him to your blessed bleeding side so he can finally look in the mirror without seeing all that hubris and vomit.  Amen.”

(Ditto, Dick Cheney.  And Mike Rogers.  And his wife, God give her peace.)

Remember when you were little and Mom taught you this one?

Little Orphant Annie

To all the little children: — The happy ones; and sad ones;
The sober and the silent ones; the boisterous and glad ones;
The good ones — Yes, the good ones, too; and all the lovely bad ones.

Little Orphant Annie’s come to our house to stay,
An’ wash the cups an’ saucers up, an’ brush the crumbs away,
An’ shoo the chickens off the porch, an’ dust the hearth, an’ sweep,
An’ make the fire, an’ bake the bread, an’ earn her board-an’-keep;
An’ all us other childern, when the supper-things is done,
We set around the kitchen fire an’ has the mostest fun
A-list’nin’ to the witch-tales ‘at Annie tells about,
An’ the Gobble-uns ‘at gits you
Ef you
Don’t
Watch
Out!

Wunst they wuz a little boy wouldn’t say his prayers,–
An’ when he went to bed at night, away up-stairs,
His Mammy heerd him holler, an’ his Daddy heerd him bawl,
An’ when they turn’t the kivvers down, he wuzn’t there at all!
An’ they seeked him in the rafter-room, an’ cubby-hole, an’ press,
An’ seeked him up the chimbly-flue, an’ ever’-wheres, I guess;
But all they ever found wuz thist his pants an’ roundabout:–
An’ the Gobble-uns ‘ll git you
Ef you
Don’t
Watch
Out!

An’ one time a little girl ‘ud allus laugh an’ grin,
An’ make fun of ever’ one, an’ all her blood-an’-kin;
An’ wunst, when they was ‘company,’ an’ ole folks wuz there,
She mocked ’em an’ shocked ’em, an’ said she didn’t care!
An’ thist as she kicked her heels, an’ turn’t to run an’ hide,
They wuz two great big Black Things a-standin’ by her side,
An’ they snatched her through the ceilin’ ‘fore she knowed what she’s about!
An’ the Gobble-uns ‘ll git you
Ef you
Don’t
Watch
Out!

An’ little Orphant Annie says, when the blaze is blue,
An’ the lamp-wick sputters, an’ the wind goes woo-oo!
An’ you hear the crickets quit, an’ the moon is gray,
An’ the lightnin’-bugs in dew is all squenched away,–
You better mind yer parunts, an’ yer teachurs fond an’ dear,
An’ churish them ‘at loves you, an’ dry the orphant’s tear,
An’ he’p the pore an’ needy ones ‘at clusters all about,
Er the Gobble-uns ‘ll git you
Ef you
Don’t
Watch
Out!

  2. Time (“It’s not enough to create space; you have to create your space for a specific period of time.”)
  3. Time (“Giving your mind as long as possible to come up with something original,” and learning to tolerate thediscomfort of pondering time and indecision.)
  4. Confidence (“Nothing will stop you being creative so effectively as the fear of making a mistake.”)
  5. Humor (“The main evolutionary significance of humor is that it gets us from the closed mode to the open mode quicker than anything else.”)

“Know that you are more than a conqueror and able to come back stronger after every trial. When you are knocked down, you will get back up. When you are mentally or verbally abused, refuse to allow those words to affect you. When you are lied to or lied about, remember that satan is the father of all lies. As you continue to believe Me at My word, you will be strengthened. Don’t allow disappointments to disillusion you from attaining your goal or deter you from going forth to accomplish the destiny that is set before you. These misfortunes that were sent to destroy you will strengthen you as you endure hardness as a good soldier. Do not allow anyone or anything to intimidate you and don’t be moved by the enemy’s  strategies which will be ineffective. Rise up as men and women of faith and take the position of the warrior that I have created you to be. As you pursue the dream, the calling and the vision that I have placed in your heart, your perseverance will catapult you ahead into all that you have been called to do. As you strengthen yourself in Me, you shall surely rebound in all things says the Lord.”

Derivatives as a verbal concept.  Sets up a similar situation to the financial derivatives.
                          Do we choose our own prisons?  I suspect that must be true.  I used to be a little bit Calvinist.  I still believe God controls every detail of my puny life, but I now recognize the overwhelming influence of my free will.  (I now also believe God big enough to pull off both extremes without negating the tiniest element of either.  He’s God.)  I do not choose anything.  I’m presented with options, they make me giddy.  I’m permitted to evaluate and compare.  I’m made to feel pride when I notice imperceptible differences.  Whispers.  When I choose, creation snickers.  I suspect humans are the only faction of creation that indulges pride.  The flowers shake their heads when they watch us interact with our creator.  We’re uppity and we’re pitiful.  We’re also beautiful and God’s best effort.  We’re going up!  And we’re going down.  This is a great time to be me.  This is the best time ever, to be human.
                         Humans are part of God’s creation that he established on this mineral-chunk in the ether somewhere.  We are his business.  Time has been established for our eternal benefit, but it will not be our eternal experience.  We’re moving on and if people choose to remain behind they may.

Easier pita bread recipe:

(Can’t get into Evernote.  Isaac can’t either when he’s here but he says he can access it fine at his house.  I figure I’m just not supposed to be writing now but I miss recording my menus.  I’ve been baking a different bread every day.  I’m always learning.)

Ingredients
1 teaspoon dry yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water (approximately 105 degrees F)
2 cups whole wheat flour
About 4 cups unbleached all-purpose or bread flour
1 tablespoon salt
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
Directions
You will need a large bread bowl, a rolling pin, and unglazed quarry tiles or several baking sheets, or alternatively a castiron or other heavy skillet or griddle at least 9 inches in diameter.

Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water in a large bread bowl. Stir to dissolve. Add whole wheat flour, one cup at a time, then 1 cup white flour. Stir 100 times (one minute) in the same direction to activate the gluten in the flour. Let this sponge rest for at least 10 minutes or as long as 2 hours.

Sprinkle salt over the sponge and stir in the olive oil. Mix well. Add white flour, one cup at a time. When the dough is too stiff to stir, turn it out onto a lightly floured bread board and knead for 8 to 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Return the dough to a lightly oiled bread bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until at least double in size, approximately 1 1/2 hours. Gently punch down. Dough can be made ahead to this point and then stored, covered, in the refrigerator for 5 days or less.

If at this time you want to save the dough in the refrigerator for baking later, simply wrap it in a plastic bag that is at least three times the size of the dough, pull the bag together, and secure it just at the opening of the bag. This will give the dough a chance to expand when it is in the refrigerator (which it will do). From day to day, simply cut off the amount of dough you need and keep the rest in the refrigerator, for up to one week. The dough will smell slightly fermented after a few days, but this simply improves the taste of the bread. Dough should be brought to room temperature before baking.

This amount of dough will make approximately 16 pitas if rolled out into circles approximately 8 to 9 inches in diameter and less than 1/4-inch thick. You can also of course make smaller breads. Size and shape all depend on you, but for breads of this dimension the following baking tips apply:

Place unglazed quarry tiles, or a large baking stone or two baking sheets, on a rack in the bottom third of your oven, leaving a one inch gap all around to allow air to circulate. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Divide dough in half, then set half aside, covered, while you work with the rest. Divide dough into eight equal pieces and flatten each piece with lightly floured hands. Roll out each piece to a circle 8 to 9 inches in diameter. You may wish to roll out all eight before starting to bake. Cover rolled out breads, but do not stack.

Bake 2 at a time (or more if your oven is larger) directly on quarry tiles or baking sheets. Bake each bread for 3 or 4 minutes, until the bread has gone into a full “balloon” or until it is starting to turn lightly golden, whichever happens first. If there are seams or dry bits of dough – or for a variety of other reasons – your bread may not go into a full “balloon”. Don’t worry, it will still taste great. The more you bake pitas the more you will become familiar with all the little tricks and pitfalls, and your breads will more consistently “balloon.” But even then, if you’re like us, it won’t always “balloon” fully and you won’t mind because the taste will still be wonderful. When baked, remove, place on a rack for about five minutes to let cool slightly, then wrap breads in a large kitchen towel (this will keep the breads soft). When first half of the dough has been rolled out and baked, repeat for rest of dough, or store in refrigerator for later use, as described above. You can also divide the dough into more, smaller pieces if you wish, to give you smaller breads.

Oh No Ross and Carrie: podcasting investigative journalists join cults, try woo, and get prodded — for science!

“I’ve just finished listening to the entire, three-year run of Oh No Ross and Carrie, a podcast hosted by two former Evangelical Christians turned skeptics, who join cults and fringe religions, visit psychics and healers of varying degrees of woo-ness, and partake of quack remedies and other newage rituals. After dozens of hours of listening, enjoying, laughing and learning, I’m totally converted to their faith.”

                              I did something very unkind last night.  I criticized  George as he was helping himself to dinner when I wasn’t quite ready and the stove was covered with pans including a deep fryer.  The boys are very defensive of him and it set up an argument because I became offended.  I rose up against their criticism and I’m repenting.  They cannot imagine that I am not unkind to him all the time.  I also became offended with my father who kept us in this situation, and that’s just as bad. God have mercy on him and on my own selfish, self-righteous soul.  I want the boys to think I’m grand.  I don’t think that’s likely until their grandfather tells the truth about my many requests for help raising respectful men in a way respectful to George.  He knew this family needed to grow a spine and he figured that without his help he could gaslight us in peace.
                           We argued about their lack of respect for their dad even as they criticize me for the same thing.  George should never have heard that and I’m very sorry.  He cleaned the kitchen until 8:31 when I went to bed and the boys left and he went into his room.  The pans were still there so I assumed we were trying to initiate my idea where everybody washes their own dishes and I wash the pans.  When I got up, all the pans are clean and George’s light is still on under his door.  Being around me has not been good for him these past few years and my dad knew it full well. He accused me of murder but he’s responsible for what’s happening here.  I’m responsible to obey God and to be kind.  I told him there are many ways to kill a man but he already knew that. You save what can be saved. (We talked about that too but he never thought I’d have the gumption to usurp a spine.)

I am giving to you the “great escape” into your promised land here on earth. For some of My children it has been a wilderness experience, where you have been living from one miracle to another. Yes, you have found Me to be your provider, and your preserver there in the wilderness. Now you will experience Me in a greater capacity as both a provider and preserver, and much more. I will be unparalleled in My attention to the smallest details in bringing about My great plan for you. Your wilderness experience has caused you to develop patience as you waited on Me.

Now stand and be amazed, just when you thought it was all over for you, the sun will arise in its brightness! It will shine on the steps that you will take, they will lead you higher and higher until the day that you come home to be with Me. Your light has come. So, then from this moment on because you have committed yourself to living wholly for Me, you will ascend to the heights that I planned from your beginning! This will increase in you My joy, and you will know real joy, unspeakable and full of glory! Glory, glory that will open up to you My ways of being and doing right. The cares of this world will lose its grip from your heart and you will keep climber higher until you are found complete in Me.

I Am covering you with My shield of favor, all will begin to look and see, some will only see that you are lifted high, others who have developed their spiritual sight will see My uniqueness all over you. This is how I will give you the great escape from the old ways and the old paths into Mine. I Am arising upon you, My humble and obedient child, your due time has come. It will seem like a dream to you at times, it will be surreal! I have kept My best for this generation, those that will stand for Me in the darkest days known and will burn brighter. Those who draw closer to Me will lean more upon My hand and will hear with clarity My voice, therein following My wisdom and getting more understanding as they go on their way to enjoy the promises that I have laid up for them now. ”

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you”. (Is. 60:1)
“When the Lord brought back the captives [who returned] to Zion, we were like those who dream [it seemed so unreal].” (Ps. 126:1)
“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:” (1 Peter 5:6)

When I’m off-kilter Jesus  tells me to read things I’ve written.  I am fearful sometimes, to even look.  I write many things at the same time to many people.  It encourages me though, to watch love develop through the seasons. I started out pretty pissed.  My family and best friends betrayed me in a permanent manner.  I was irate at times, with my folks.  (I was  ASTONISHED that they would not assist me during  Josh’s molested-adolescence.)  I bitched at Adam for years on end.  I also did as Jesus instructed, I sent Trish all the fabric samples that belonged to her brother.  I sent Adam copies of my nominating petitions from a place where everybody was a tea-party-mogul.  I did nice things for people, then I began to feel love again.  The secret to liking oneself truly is helping others.  The secret to remaining sane is gratitude.

I recognize that nothing really changes anymore, about how I feel about people.  I don’t ever seem to take their behavior personally or become angry.  (I have the hardest time retaining equilibrium around George.  His behavior affects me more personally than others’.)  I think this is what rational feels like.  What changes during the times I’m darkest, is how I feel about myself.  I’m in a shaky place and it’s not comfortable, but I’m only here because I obeyed Jesus every single day.  For years. He says I can ask for 3.5 million.  When I see myself through his eyes I’m extremely balanced.

To survive mind control and to hear from God you must consciously train yourself to ignore others’ opinions of you.  This makes it difficult to take joy from flattery.  In a survival situation, you can’t even trust  legitimate human love.  It’s impossible to differentiate when one has been behavior-modified to believe oneself defective.  It’s a good thing I knew God or I’d never be able to love again!  Think of all the people whose love-mechanism  has been intentionally destroyed by slander!  By psychiatry!  By prosecutors!  By psychopathology.  They need God to get their love unstuck.  God’s love has taken me far.  If a human loved me I’d probably go all the way!  Chayla loves me, and Isaac does too and Josh even said he did.  We’re becoming a tribe now and so far it’s a lot nicer than family ever was.  There’s lots more music and laughing and we talk about how to help love-stuck people become conscious.  Isaac is planning the “Ski-for-Freedom Summit” and Chayla is teaching the finer points of twinkie-ism.  God said I’ll have everything I ever wanted, I’ve been warning people about that for years.

     There is no liberal-conservative dichotomy in America, or in the world.  These sports teams are for our distraction and pacification.  (They also sell a lot of pennants and cheese-hats.)  The real players are  1) authoritarianism, and 2)  libertarianism.  Jesus is into freedom.  “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.” (I am on his side, it can’t be helped.)   We’re denied freedom.  We all want to be free, from the first day we pitch our gruel bowl off the high-chair tray.   Parents provide incentive to keep slop where it belongs.  Good parents make us clean it up.  Poor  parents are embarrassed by our fledgling freedom and begin using mind control techniques to ensure that we do  not embarrass them again.  They have been indoctrinated and feel compelled to imprison others.  Their children are not people, but extensions of themselves.  This is narcissistic and authoritarian and anti-christ.  It has been programmed into them and this is not OK.
                         We live in a fully-automated authoritarian state.  School shuffles us into life by defining our character and potential at a young age.  I  homeschooled my children;  I received a call once from a man concerned about his son.  The PTB wanted to put the boy in Special Ed.  He asked me to teach him so this wouldn’t happen.  The dad had been thusly herded  and the designation has adversely affected his whole life.  In school I was deemed intellectually promising, and told I must attend college.  I  really would have liked a man to love me and to have babies and not go through all that programming bullshit.  God planned my life otherwise.  It is most difficult to follow God in an authoritarian world.  Yet, he uses even psychopathic control freaks to do his will.
                          I’m 54 years old and my father still suffers  the bruised pride of new-parent-jitters.  I wanted to please him so badly I cried when my babies threw food on the floor in front of him.  I tried so hard to fulfill what his authoritarian, fear-based persona required!  Big problem though:  IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR MY MIND TO KNOW WHAT ANOTHER MIND EXPECTS  OF MY BEHAVIOR.   It’s entirely irrational for him to believe I could.  It’s immoral for him to believe I would.  My father’s beef with me is that I am not what he wants.  That’s pretty sick.
He’s not really rational.
                         It’s like my life is on some celestial toggle-switch.  Linda is on, or Linda is useless.  I know the difference very well because the manifest presence of God turns me on.  I have done thousands of things I’m not capable of doing, I’ve written words  by dictation that look really truthful in the light of day, I’ve had joy.  “The joy of the Lord is my strength,” but what is his joy?  It’s me!  It’s all of us!  It’s the establishment of his very own kingdom on Earth with all the remaining people who loved truth!  (After the apocalypse.)   People are being given unprecedented opportunity to love Truth.  He’s the boss so I’m really praying for people to shed  their programming.

Post-torture self-concept remediation   Part 2
                         OK, I’m a servant of the Most High God, I got that.  I also note with some surprise, that I am a writer.  I always thought I might like writing but I never had anything to say and I was too self-conscious to push the send button. God caused me to bitch at a man for two years straight and I learned to write.  (He also changed my handwriting and if I had a scanner I’d put samples on the site.)  People are wondering about electronic torture!  Some have asked for my references.   (Maybe I’ll get an interview.)   On my website, thatrandomcandidate.com, are two pertinent pages in particular.  “Mind-control Matrix” is new but there’s lots more information on “Gangstalking Roundup.”  I will answer any questions but if they’re about the electronic rape part of my torture, I’d like to be messaged privately.  (I’m also remediating my modesty.)
                         When I get an interview,  I expect I’ll be questioned about what  I want  from my dad.  Why do I pester him so relentlessly.   (Well there’s the part about attempted murder, and the part about him stealing my house and all earthly respect…)   I expect him to give me contact information for the fusion center in Detroit.  (There are now 72 fusion centers and their total function is surveillance of citizens.  There may be another in Michigan by now, they’re popping up pretty fast.)   State police, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, NSA…fusion centers are an incestuous snake-nest of slander and murder.  (Same thing, given time.)   Dad will  remediate the ruin he coldly created, by untangling the entanglements with intelligence.  (Sometimes I crack myself up.)   (My dad’s intelligence tangles are rat’s-nests.)  (That’s what you get before the dreadlocks form.)

                           It occurred to me today that when my dad pays me what he owes me, he will be acknowledging my veracity in many areas.  He took my house.  This is verifiable.  He denigrated my prayer-life to the state police and called me a murderer.  This is verifiable.  He undermined my relationship with family and even my authority with my own children.  This is verifiable.   Many times he refused to help me obtain heat for my sons’ home, and he refused to help me lock its doors.  (I would have even paid money from my ex-husband’s employment.)  This all, is verifiable and I swore over my records  and had them notarized several years ago.  This being established, I claim that  his intervention  with hoodlums set into motion a course of torture that nearly killed me and demolished my modesty.  When he signs my check, as he will, many people will be watching.  I’m guessing some might  have questions for him.  Maybe lots of people.  Last week my site got a hit every  25 seconds!  (Roughly.) My numbers just go up and up.  The longer this goes on, the more money my lying father will give me and the more people will want to lynch him.
                            When my dad pays me what he owes me he will also be acknowledging that I am right about electronic torture.  I hope he is prepared for the fallout of having delayed sharing his knowledge with people who might have been better prepared.  My dad has much blood on his hands.

                         I wish my great uncles were still in their bodies.  My uncles got me.  Herb and Wilf.  I went to Toronto to see Wilf a few times before he died.  We cried just looking at each other.  I said, “Wilf, we never got to spend much time together in this life.  I’d like to know that when this life is over I’ll get to talk to you as much as I want.”  I wanted him to meet Jesus and so did my dad.  Dad flew to Toronto to give Wilf a gospel tract.  Wilf loved me and he loved my dad. Although I haven’t seen him yet I can hear him cheering me on.
                           Herb did the best cheers.  He could yodel and had a laugh like a war-whoop.  He scared me when I was little because he’d grab me and look into my eyes and demand, “HOW IS IT WITH YOU AND JESUS?”  I never told him but he knew anyway.  I loved Herb from afar until I got older and could discuss my commitment.  (Herb also understood my commitment  to my first husband and was willing to marry me to a different man…)  Herb gave me Isaac.  Isaac was Herb’s Spirit-filled father and my great-grandfather  Isaac is also my premature baby who required years of unproductive labor to produce.  Herb came to the hospital after officiating at my grandfather’s funeral on New Year’s Eve, to pray for me.  Before he left the hospital my own Isaac was born.  Herb was a powerful man of God, in his generation.  I wish he could be here to walk in the authority God’s Own Sons will display to a fallen world.  I imagine his cheers have improved celestially.  I can’t wait to see him again.  Josh was born with the cord around his neck!  Four or five times.  I get my fours and fives mixed up.  I wish somebody would have been around to pray for him.

I stopped hyper-ventilating when I heard Jesus say I don’t have to understand anything.  I’m flowing with His Spirit.  This can’t in any way be a bad thing.  I don’t feel myself, but I still think of myself once in awhile and I don’t like it.  I’d much rather be myself.  I’m in the wrong life.  I cannot be myself yet.  I’ve seen it on the horizon, but I’m still imprisoned.  The authenticity I desire will burn through all insinuation and habit.  I’ll become transparent and mud won’t stick.  Mud-slingers will stagger in compost, I’ll fly into my lover’s arms.  This is gonna be good.  I can hardly wait.

The sun is going down.  George will leave at six am.  The propane is at 14%.  George went to see if the brown pick-up truck is somewhere so we can scavenge some wood.  If not, he says I am to use electric heat.  He believes it will be cheaper to heat this enormous house with electricity.  I will have to stay in a single room, no hardship really.  But, there are water-pipes in rooms I will not enter.  Whatever.  This is not my house.  Besides, I’m just a woman.  What do I know?

11:46 am

George is planning to find my dad to ask if he may have a couple face-cords of firewood my dad’s stashed down at the ACE store.  This oughta be good.
1.  Call number one.  George left a very humble message on the machine at my dad’s office.
2.  Call number two.  George called David and told him the price of propane has doubled and the wood he ordered will not arrive until February 11.  Could he please take a couple cords?  David said yes.  George politely asked if the dumptruck was running and could he please use it.  This was OK.  George asked if my parents were out of the country and David said he didn’t know where they went.  Apparently, they are with Jay and Eleanor so it’s probably Asia.  I suspect David knows where they are.
3.  George is waiting for a return call from David about the status of the dumptruck.  It would be nice if it showed up full of wood and was dumped in front of the house.  David should care for those who have less than he.
4.  David called.  I’m listening to George on the phone.  He’s not talking much.  We are permitted to go pick sticks at my rich father’s place.  Such largesse.
5.  George is telling David about the bearing going out in his van and that he and Josh fixed the bearing until 3:30 in the morning.  David does not understand such things.  George is telling David that it was a major blessing because it would have cost him better than two hundred dollars if it had happened while he was on the way to his mother’s house.  David does not understand this type of blessing.
6.  The phone call ended with George saying, “I appreciate you checking things out for me and thanks for the firewood.  Have a great day, David.”
7.  George just informed me that after four o’clock we may use a brown pick-up that will be left at my dad’s office.  George is going to scoop out the driveway.  We do not own a snow-plow.

12:30 pm

I told my dad in June, 2012, “You save what can be saved.”  The man hears things but he has no empathy.  This is psychopathic.

3:12 am
George is talking to his married girlfriend.  I dislike hearing about the weather all the time but now he’s displaying a little enthusiasm.  He SENT HER A RING and even so  I rarely hear enthusiasm.  I hear about the weather.  He’s married to her already.
10:49 am
I asked George  if he would ask Josh to do the dishes.  He said, “Well Josh hasn’t been here for most of two weeks and he was at Isaac’s and…”  I said I didn’t want to hear excuses why he hadn’t washed dishes.  (He hasn’t washed dishes for more than a year.)   I said, “I am his mother, not his servant.  Will you ask him to wash dishes?”  He said yes. (I said maybe I’d hem some pants today.)  Birthday Strike day 5.  I also asked if he would ask Josh to put away the suitcase he used that has been in the entryway for over a week and to find my sleeping bag that he borrowed.  He started to do those things himself.  I said, for the fifteen-thousandth time in 22 years…”This is about teaching children, not about getting it done.”  He nodded.  It always surprises me.  When he gets up before noon I’m troubled.  He just went outside and I’m breathing.  It still surprises me.
11:58 am
Birthday strike concluded.  I washed some dishes, after cleaning the black-bean juice Josh had dumped around the dishpan.  I had to use scouring powder.  He said he does not respect me.  I said I don’t respect him either, and he said that’s not the way to get him to do dishes.  (lol)  I said I don’t give a shit if he does dishes.  I’d like him to grow up.  I said that when somebody gives you respect you then have to earn it or it goes away.  I said I respected Marv,  my paralyzed boss, although he couldn’t move a muscle.  When he screamed at me in the night because his body did something unexpected, I lost respect for him.  I also respected Josh although he also can’t move a muscle. He agreed to that, I’ve not asked him to do a thing for a year.   I told him I cannot be his slave because I’m doing something hard and important and I’m palpitating most of the time.  I told him I’d like for him to take care of his own things a bit more.
He respects George.  I  told him that although George is a kind, generous man…he is the worst father I’ve ever seen.  (And I’ve been privy to the scheming of an extremely terrible father.)  I told him that ever since Isaac was born I’ve suggested that George require the boy to watch him do things, so he could learn.  This has never happened.  When my father destroyed my credibility, he took away the only parenting my son had.  (This also translates into monetary damages.)   I have three sons.  My father owes them all.  I told my mother two years ago  (when I “spontaneously quit puking after being hacked by a moral atheist”)  that Josh was at an important point in his life and needed responsibility and guidance.  She agreed with me.  Guidance was not proffered. He’s a fine young man and I do not think the window of opportunity for him to gain life skills has passed.   It would be unnecessary for me to denigrate my sons’ father if my own father had assisted me.  Selah.
George is going to his mother’s again.  Wish I knew where I could take a bubblebath.  The only bathtub in this house is in his bathroom and I haven’t been there for years.
(Somebody forward this to Stacy.  She’s a better person than she sounds online.)

The door blew wide open.  I went to close it and heard George’s van in the garage.  It changed the air pressure before he even got out.  He’s now reading his W-2 to Josh, line by line…   He does not love money.   Lack is his focus although he’s very generous.  He’s suggesting that since the price of Josh’s tea is so high we should buy MORE of it and protest by using it to paint the capital dome brown.  When he accompanied me to political events he looked really good in a suit.  The dishes are still unwashed.  Josh is cooking. There are two bags of garbage on the kitchen floor next to the garbage can.  When I “spontaneously stopped vomiting after being hacked by a moral atheist” I found 11 broken doors in this house.   I asked my dad how to get locks.  (I’ve never owned a key to the house or slept with locked doors.  My ex-husband’s dope-business made me consider this.)   My father refused frequent (documented) requests for information about locks and doors.  He refused to help me fix them. I fixed as many as I could.  Now the screens are gone again and one storm door is permanently propped open.  Again.  George replaced a  lockset.  The door blew open anyway.  Oh well, it’s not my house anymore.  Birthday strike.  Day 4.

George is like a big old rag doll and my dad has treated him as an inanimate object since they met.  He accused me of murder!  How could I murder a man who I supported for decades?  I defended him when Dad called him deficient!  I engaged my father in a spiritual battle.  He lies.  When I realized he was unwilling to speak truthfully, I said, “There are many ways to kill a man.”   My dad has much blood on his hands.

My Grace

January 27, 2014

Dear child of the living God. I have some encouraging words to speak to you today, words that should bring happy satisfaction to your heart. Look into the eyes of your Beloved and know that the words that I speak are spoken in all sincerity and love. Look forward to each new day in Me, knowing that you cannot fall too far from the power of My grace. No! My grace encompasses you and offers you hope for each new day. Look forward to seeing My will develop in your life and know that I am always with you, upholding you in a forward position. I will never let you down.

Do not be discouraged when you falter, but look to Me, call out to Me and I will aid you in your walk in ways you never dreamed. I am able to do the most phenomenal and I will do it for you. Do not doubt. And I tell you, beloved, that as you walk seeking My face you will gain strength with each passing day. I am your God. My love for you is stronger than death; it is stronger than anything that you could ever face. Regard this truth with a thankful heart. Keep your focus on Me and let Me aid you as you walk out the plan that I so carefully planned for you. You will know heart peace and an exhilaration that cannot be fathomed, an exhilaration that will gladden your heart and send you catapulting into that place of joy unspeakable. That is what I bring, dear heart. That is what I have to give. Never doubt, and remember: My grace is far reaching and there is nothing you can do that it cannot reach. Nothing, beloved! No, nothing!!!

I was unkind to George and I’m trying to repent.  I even told him that I found notes from two years ago where I wrote that I wanted to die rather than live with him any longer.  It didn’t phase him; he is “unflappable.”  That’s my mom’s word, she used it a lot when we were first together.  We all assumed it was a positive attribute. He’s talking to his girlfriend on the phone right now.  He has another vacation and he’s going to his mother’s house again; I wish he’d go see the woman.  The propane tank is at 18% and we’re short on wood.  He says we’ll use electric heat now so I suggested putting a unit between the thermostat and the hallway to my bedroom.  It’s 57 degrees in my room and I can’t believe that does not unduly tax the furnace.  I cannot reason with him and I cannot always refrain from reminding him that if we had ordered wood before there was two feet of snow everywhere…    I do not choose to be a bitch.  I choose to live in a rational world.  So far so good.  Last year he went to his mother’s house leaving me with no heat.  I am less important by far, than frozen pipes.  Still, heatlessness was unconsidered.  People who have called me crazy should try living with the real deal.  I just heard him reassure his girlfriend that he’d already shined his boots.

7:58 pm

                         Josh brought some books and stuff from his room that he no longer wants.  I tried to pitch out some computer disks for “Switched-on Schoolbus, History edition.”  George pulled them from my hands.  I said all the information is available online and nobody would ever use them.  He said he might.  They will be added to the piles of trash in his bedroom.  At least they’re no longer in Josh’s.  George is unable to throw anything away. This has been difficult for me,  a naturally disorganized person.  But, I know what I have and where my things are.  I am more organized than some.  I will not retain trash because I know better things await.
                         I will not buy into “obsessive-compulsive” because I reject the matrix’s definitions of people.  I will say that George seems to fear lacking a thing, even old plastic bottles.  He has no assurance that he will have what he needs when he needs it.  He saves everything and doesn’t use the stuff.  He uses very little.  He requires very little.  He saves everything.  I would not wish to face oncoming enemy assault with him.  One cannot improvise when one’s mind is bound by lack.  To lead an assault of any kind from this mindset is to ensure defeat.  He is not an ally in this world or the next.  He gave up.  Josh came home with Isaac for about 24 hours then took off again.  I’m grateful he can get away from this.

One of Isaac’s friends said the only reason she goes to facebook is to read what I posted. Even he’s  reading my blog and asked about my evidence!  He said, “Do you not think I’d get on board and publish your book and sell it?”  Josh said something like, “You only gave me one page, one time, I still have it.  Don’t you think we’d help?”  Guess maybe I should do some collating.

Selfish, we’re all so selfish.  A little  self-sacrifice would save the planet.  We  misheard the kindergarten teacher and adopted:  “Do unto others before they do unto you.”  This is paranoia and mental illness.  When we recognize communal depravity and deceit, the non-choice choice is to enter psychosis.  Or, we can decide to lay down our lives for truth and freedom that humans  require.  Reputation-sacrifice is merely threshold. Sacrifice is unending but extremely rewarding.  Sacrifice is scary and therein lies the pain.  Sacrifice does not hurt. Fearing sacrifice hurts more than anything.  I’m sorry I caused fear and put my former friends in pain.  I’d like to see them avoid pain that is much worse.

Billie Jo and Kathy are coming tomorrow; Billie said she’d try to sing!  (Her throat has been bad.  Her singing is angel-talk.)  I invited my mother, because we could use an alto.  She said she’d love to come but had to be in Toronto.  Then she texted me back and said she was glad I’m playing the piano again.  I told her it’s hard to play when you’re puking and having tax-funded orgasms.

I’m sensing some kind of integration.  My scripture-principles seldom require chapter-verse validation.  My political observations are automatic.  My wit is responsive and my breathing calm.  I think this is what truth feels like.  I’m liking it.

(I sent this text to my mother day before yesterday.  I told her I would not post it if she said no.)

My mother gave me a thumbs-up on my “impeachment” post. I can’t really assimilate yet what that means. None of my family has ever before responded. Mom knows better than the rest of us. Darlene. She committed suicide. Dad called me, I was 20. I was sorry but didn’t understand  why it was so important that my dad would deign to call me, a mere girl. I didn’t know Darlene well but she was really cute. She painted her eyebrows on. They looked fabulous. My mom got eyebrow tattoos in Asia. Don’t blame her. I’ve wanted love so bad I would have tattooed my ass with catnip. My mom is a far better lady.

                         I told my mom I would protect her.  This was a very strange thing to think and even stranger to say.  I hope all my years of telling the truth prove sufficient for her to believe that God is in control of  me and her.  Chayla was here for four hours and I hardly got antsy.  I’m becoming accustomed to people again.  My father made me afraid  of everybody.  (Nice.  All my notes are gone now.  Love seeing my tax dollars at work.)  We’ll see where this goes anyway.
                          “I’ve a Story to Tell to the Nations, that will Turn Their Hearts to the Right…”  Get with the program, all ye of little faith.  I think I’m tired.  I think I’ll sleep for an hour until undefined terror grips my heart and sweat spurts from the middle of my chest and my scalp.  Then  I will immediately get up and begin to pray for those who torture for a living.  Selah.

                         I’m thinking I’ll get that logo as a  tattoo, maybe on my forehead or my right hand.  Maybe not.  I’d like my body art to be truthful and the NSA will not be inside me forever.  I think I might become the first person ever, whose sanity is proclaimed on the front page of the Newberry News.  It’s looking that way.
                         I couldn’t pretend to be more sane if anybody were watching!  I asked Chayla if I could record our conversations.  She said she’s often thought we should.  I was complaining (God forgive me) about waking up with that terrible tingling on my head, knowing I’d soon be soaked in sweat beginning in the middle of my chest and that my scalp  would produce a deluge of moisture that would drench my pillow and I’d have to get up and…    Chayla laughed and said, “I used to feel like my hair was growing or something.”  Our conversations are confirmational and bond us together in purpose.
She’s not here right now but if she were we’d both say:
1.  Wake up.
2.  Give a shit.
3.  Relocate.  (I don’t know if we’d agree about this.  She relocated physically and spiritually.  I just did it spiritually.  We’d have to talk some more.)
                         I took her an egg salad sandwich at 7:30.  (She was disappointed with one she purchased,  it was all grease and processed eggs. )  She pays attention to detail and I love that about her.  I also love that she tells the truth.  We tell the truth to one another and replenish our stores of personal truth.  I’m going to like living in God’s Kingdom very much.

Stacy told me to get help.  I’m sure she’s repeating what she’s heard.  It hurts just the same.  “Dear God, give her freedom!  She doesn’t even know the cesspool she inhabits!  Love her to death and back to life again.  Give her freedom and give her the freedom to free me.  Amen.”

                           God is telling me that the electronic mind-mincing is man’s attempt to speak to him.  I have no idea what he means.  He said first, something about the rapes being an imitation of Heavenly languages,  potentially proving it all bullshit.  I was with him for a bit but I’m lost now.  I’m asking him why the brightest of my race would choose to seek him…through another person’s mind.  He’s saying “priesthood.”  “Moses.”  “People are afraid of me because they’re liars.”  People are afraid of me for the same reason, I hear.  I feel I am disrespectful in his presence if I am not physically on my face, and if I’m smoking or something.  Farting.  Whatever.  He says he loves me and he knows I love him.  He’s making my heart bigger.  About time.
                        I heard my spirit say, “I don’t know how much more of this I can take.  Nobody will tell the truth.”  He said, “Daughter, you don’t have to take  anything.  I took it all to the cross.  Be patient.”

The Wailing Wall

For the first time I’m circling the airport rather than circling the drain.  I can’t get used to the  reality God says is mine.  I just became unclenched.  I felt George ease out of my mind.  I usually put up a wall when I think about him, but I was always still  clenched.  This time, rather than putting up the wall that I judge myself for naming “stupid,”   I felt it slide out of my mind.  God has things well in hand.  I’ve obeyed him to the best of my ability.  Maybe I can relax a bit.  I wish George a life of joy and service.   I wish his children to live abundantly and joyfully.  I know not if my two wishes are compatible.  I know God reprograms the test when there is no way to win.  I had no way to win, so I gave my life away.  Now I’ll have everything I ever  wanted.  “I should be happy, but  all  I  do (…wail…)  is (…wail…)… CRY.”  (Marilyn McCoo)  I don’t  literally cry, I stopped crying every day, and now it’s pretty rare.  (My first ex-husband commented to my mom once about how much I cried.  My mom could honestly say, and comfort me in her neglect, “I never noticed she cries a lot.”)  So I am no longer depressed, but I lack joy in the waiting.   I’m cramped in  coach and if we’re not going to land pretty soon, I’d like to be taken to the cockpit.  I can’t fly a jet yet, and I’m eager to learn how.  I’m waiting for “joy unspeakable and full of glory.”  How’s that for a happy ending?  God says the pilot needs me a lot more than I need him so I’m pretty certain I won’t get  in his way.

I think my parents don’t value presents as much as the rest of us because they get so many.  People give rich folks gifts all the time.  My mom used to “collect” owls…so lots of people bought her owls.  She had SHELVES FULL of owls and I never  saw her touch them.  I used to dust them every Saturday while I watched cartoons.  I also think presents don’t mean much to my folks because they lack anticipation.  Opening a present is great; a present might be something you actually LIKE!    Everything they like they already bought.

Dancing with My Daddy:  A Christmas Story
1)   “…a sociopath will often test other people’s empathy, so questions geared towards discovering if you are highly empathic or not should ring alarm bells”
                               “Linda, why don’t you bake a buttermilk cake for us?”
 2)   “…less-visible burden of sociopath-induced emotional trauma which, if left unchecked, can lead to anxiety disorders, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder”
                             Linda’s medical records until she got the Holy Ghost in 2001:
“Chronically traumatised people often exhibit hypervigilant, anxious and agitated behaviour, symptoms such as tension headaches, gastrointestinal disturbances, abdominal pain, back pain, tremors and nausea”.
3)   “Exposure to and interaction with a sociopath in childhood can leave lifelong scars.”
                                       (Thank you Jesus that this need not be so.)
4)   “… bullying. He started a whispering campaign…”  (A psychopath might even put your name in the church bulletin!)
5)   ” We are conditioned to keep quiet, which often means turning a blind eye to or putting up with abuse”
6)    “Unremitting abuse of other people is an activity of the sociopath that stands out. To win their games, sociopaths enlist the help of hangers-on: apaths.”
7)   “Sociopaths have an uncanny knack of knowing who will assist them in bringing down the person they are targeting.”
8)   ” Often, the person targeted by the sociopath is an empath. Empaths are ordinary people who are highly perceptive and insightful and belong to the 40% of human beings who sense when something’s not right”
9)   ” A particular attribute is that they are sensitive to the emotional distress of others. Conversely, they have trouble comprehending a closed mind and lack of compassion in others.”
10)   “Empaths use their ability to emphasize and  to boost theirs and others’ wellbeing and safety. Problems arise for empaths, however, when there are apaths in the vicinity.”
11)   “The world of the empath is not for the faint-hearted”
12)   “The usual set-up goes like this: the empath is forced to make a stand on seeing the sociopath say or do something underhand. The empath challenges the sociopath, who straight away throws others off the scent and shifts the blame on to the empath. The empath becomes an object of abuse when the apath corroborates the sociopath’s perspective.”
13)   “Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which false information is presented in such a way as to make the target doubt his/her memory and perception. Psychologists call this “the sociopath’s dance”.

To my roommate:  It used to hurt that you do not care about the torture I endured.  It puzzles me that you do not care about its effects on your children.  That my torture’s effects on you do not matter is a subject of great confusion.  You’re not a selfish man, you’re more of a dead man.

I think some people cannot be imprisoned.  I think some people do not notice when their surroundings constrict them.  Some people are too small to see the bars on the windows.  Some people are not me.  I begrudge my opulent surroundings, and even those who urge me to be content.  I am not content in the entire world!  The world is not big enough to restrain what I know.  I know we’re better  than we’ve been.  I know we’re more capable that we’re allowed to demonstrate.  I know that this world will explode when enough people recognize their prison.

                          I’m sitting outside Steve’s store in a blizzard, in a car, pirating his internet.  The minute I pulled up a song began playing in my head.  “Away in a manger, no crib for a bed…”  It made me smile.  Last time I saw him I played piano and we sang Christmas carols.
“If Jesus goes with me I’ll go..ANY-where.
Wherever I be, ’tis Heaven to me…
If He is there…
I count it a privilege his…
CROSS-to bear…
If Jesus goes with me I’ll go
ANY-where.”
                         We sing lots of Jesus songs together and we cry a lot.
                         Having recently understood that people do not buy things to have different things, but to have different feelings, I’m stymied that any adult would buy a pair of plastic deer antlers.  They came from a sporting goods store and are meant to be smacked together in imitation of real deer noises. The hunter supposedly calls deer within range, by polymer peals of  people-rhythm.  This seems unlikely.  Another question is that of the feelings aroused by possessing such things.  What in a human heart can be pacified by possessions?
                         My boys have  moved out and I’m happy for them.  I expected that before their departure they would recognize the need to shovel a walk or sweep a floor, but I console myself that my absence necessitated  their deficiencies;  and I’d do it again.  I left home in 2006  to obey God.  I’ve  been on a truth-quest ever since.  He is in control and he loves me and my family.  This is OK.
                         I’m roasting pork tonight, so the boys will come home for their dad’s day off.  Vegetables. Maybe gravy. Their father bought some commercial pastries for dessert.  I think for Christmas I will make eclairs like I used to do when they were little.  Maybe they’ll remember.
