The Book of Proverbs, O’ how so true the words be, Yet!, they be So forgotten as if lost in the end of an age. But, slowly the Truth! laces up her Sneakers And lays claim to the symbol that adorns all Nike’ Gear. the power of the word awakens, with a swoosh!!
(Prvb) “A poor man is shunned by all his relatives-how much more do his friends avoid him?
Though he pursues them with pleading, They are nowhere to be found!.”
(Except the poor who’s name maybe found upon a numbered stamp, of a dying, farewell, welfare state!)
Prvb19/10- It is not fitting for a fool (world & religious politics) to live in Luxury
How much worse for a slave (politics/bankers, etc) to rule over princes (us the common folks)
“The wealth of the rich is their fortified city; they imagine it an UN-scaleable Wall”
Oh, People that are wealthy with their now easy won toys & materialistic gains,
know this …(Prvb 17//22 ) “That a cheerful heart is good medicine but a crushed Spirit dries the Bones”
To my eldest Brother also, my friends, brothers and sisters around the globe this Proverb is for you
“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity” (prvrb17/17)
Albeit through darkness of night, or light of days. may we all learn to milk our mothers breast, and gain wisdom from one another. So,enabling us too return too our mothers cosmic chest. Thus! regaining our immortal self. in understanding our individual and each others God-head.as ultimately we are all Christs.
also, brothers and sisters we can be born anew to each other, from a shared adversity.
Be it In, the struggle for freedoms and the ending of Poverty, at all levels, and in all ages!. Or, in the philosophical discussions of our Shared Spiritual paths and Souls of this one and only life.
This next Proverb is for Religious Extremists’ also, for they who live in Gated Communities, and Build walls that Divide a City, towns or Nations.
(prvb17/19) “They who love quarrel loves Sin; they who build High gates invite Destruction!
It seems to myself, and I hope many others, that, there are many high gates Surrounding many a peoples Beliefs or, inherited riches. So, to the one who says this is the way! or, that is the way, and in doing so instigates religious violence and social intolerance these ignorant persons are not champions of truth and peace.
Gated communities, why do you live in fear? If you have an answer to this?, then you have a task a duty in building up the lives of the downtrodden,. Poor, abused angry and sad lives of your fellow Human beings. Help one person stand erect., do not erect a wall, just in the off chance, that you will be robbed. As, Is it not better, too stand all together, than stand by yourself, alone! Remember Humpty Dumpty..
For, If you keep on building and living behind them, there high walls, destruction will come in ways that you do not even yet, know about! (spiritual poverty)
Also, if you think, your understanding, of not just religion but of many other things is greater, than that of others, who are more learned than yourself then, one day, you will see your own destruction! (unless you have wisdom) which stems from understanding and love. Remember that zeal can sometimes close the ears!
“The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; “the ears of the wise seek it out”
This next proverb, sums up sadly, and Beautifully the current mental state of many a People,plus the way we live, and how with out knowing all the facts, the common folks (us) can be swept along into believing anything as an actual fact, as they (we) either lack the knowledge/education compassion (true freewill) to “truly” make up our own minds.
Prvrb14/15 “ A simple person believes anything but a prudent person gives thought to their steps”
And with this my Jerry springeresque final thought, i bid you a good Sunday and a happy Week ahead.. stay kind and true. D.
Oh what a joy! It, would be, for me, to live a simple life! how much more joy, if, “WE” all could Simplify & just BE…..
