GOD (Let it simmer)

It's strange that God doesn't mind expressing Himself/Herself in all the religions of the world, while people still cling to the notion that their way is the only right way. Whatever you try to say about God, someone will take offense, even if you say everyone's love of God is right for them.
For me the form God takes is not the most important thing. What's most important is the essence. My songs and dances are outlines for Him to come in and fill. I hold out the form. She puts in the sweetness. I've looked up at the night sky and beheld the stars so intimately close,it was as if my grandmother made them for me. How rich,how sumptuous,I thought. In that moment I saw God in His creation. I could as easily have seen Her in the beauty of a rainbow,the grace of a deer bounding through a meadow,the truth of a father's kiss. But for me the sweetest contact with God has no form. I close my eyes,look within, and enter a deep soft silence. The infinity of God's creation embraces me. We are one.

Why are we so hell bent on trusting someone else's version of truth? Why is it we believe God said, "let us create man in our image," yet, worship a savior, which is his only begotten son, who doesn't resemble us in any way? Every people, with a religion, has a god in their image until it comes to the hue-man. Why is this? We are presented with one supposed episode in the bible where our pigmentation is a curse (one of those revisions) and that's ok? Do we ever stop to consider the other episodes there starting with moses being told by God to put his hand in his bosom and he pulls out a white hand? A white hand turns into a white hand? Makes sense, huh? When leprosy is mentioned we mentally envision sores, right? wrong! We're told God is not bias. Yet, the bible says he loved Jacob and hated Esau FROM THE WOMB.It says he has a chosen people(matt15:24) and he told exactly how he would and did deal with us. I say has because I haven't seen any place where this claim was negated. Are we listening? The moment the phrase, "what would Jesus do?" was coined all imagined dependency upon the Preacher that's leading us in circles should have ceased since,we are each endowed with attributes of God.Really what does the preacher have that we don't? Knowledge? We have the bible. Wisdom? We have God. BTW,you live. You die. Then what? Do we honestly believe we are going someplace beyond the skies to sing hallelu...yah for eternity? Heck we can't even stand doing the same thing over and over right now.LOL We look on life as a gift. The bible says the wages of sin is death.
Out of all things in heaven and on earth Solomon asked for wisdom not belief, not faith, not to join him in heaven but, wisdom. Why? There are more than 2000 versions of the bible proclaiming one truth. Truth is truth and needs no revisions. Either something is or it isn't. Why go to a building once a week to praise a God that is supposedly with you constantly? God says rest on the seventh day and keep it holy. Why do we look at a calendar that starts with sunday being day one yet, it is the day of worship? The bible says study to show yourself approved. I try to do this. Thus far, I've encountered a virgin birth at least 1500 years before Jesus, 32 more commandments in addition to the ten moses presented STRAIGHT FROM GOD, known as negative confessions, a trinity consisting of a she, he, and child. My mind tells me if I were to rely on belief, go with antiquity. After all the bible was compiled from it just presented in a way intended to enslave rather than liberate. Half truth is no more than a lie by omission. in seach of truth. holler back at me if you so desire. L.O.V.E.

We Are the World Remake

From the World

Coming from the heart of the matter. What have you done? this is a song that addreses all the problems of the world, why tamper with it? How old is the American anthem with all its pretentious idealisms? Did it ever occur to you to reword, edit, upbeat, hip-hop,or modernize its lyrics or tempo? We are the world was Michael's/Lionel's contribution to humanity. it still touches every gender, race, color, age,creed, and nationality.

If you wanted to touch hearts for Haiti, the original version would have sufficed with your speech injected at the end,as done here. Vocally it doesn't come close to the real song emotionally or spiritually. it looks as though God is still shining on Michael. But, this is just my opinion. You say you did it for Haiti,I for one have my doubts. With all that talent why not just create another song? How many entertainers were a part of this show? Can any one of them, at this moment, give account to the world either humanitarily or monetarily one-tenth of what Michael selflessly gives?

Including Michael in the remake? Duhhh, Sweetness, that is neither a gesture of respect or tribute, it was essential. Before now I would say the message was Michael and Lionel now it seems Lionel has jumped ship. His reasons or explanations or not justifiable. How do you fix something that is not broken? How can you improve perfection? But, hey that's ok! Michael, no doubt, sees the humor in this and is saying to all of you, well done my loyal and faithful friends, it's all for love, L.O.V.E I SAY SHAME ON YOU
