milky way galaxy

 

I had watched an animation of how our solar system is situated in the milky way galaxy, and how the sun moves at incredible speed (132 miles per second) dragging us along, and how our sun revolves around it’s own sun which then revolves around its own sun, and how long that takes solar system to go complely around the galaxy about 122 billion years, (wow, talk about a long time!!!!!)can you imagine if you were on a space ship going 11 millions miles a day? wow, you could really cover some distance in no time, but really with regard to the galaxy and universe that is like going down the street in real time and distance. The producer of the video likened our sun to a comet with our planets revolving around in a vortex like sprial rather then circle.

And when I looked at the milky way galaxy and where our solar system was I was flabergasted at how tiny we were in relation to sirus, the center sun, and to the milky way galaxy itself. WOW!!!! And it is amazing that there are millions of other galaxies out there that are even bigger so I have been told. why do I bring this up? Well I have been watching and reading so much stuff from everyone to economists, scientists, to political anaylstes, to enviromental “experst”, to free will thinkers and philosphers you name it I have watched or read it. And I got to thinking after all the stuff I disagreed and agreed, I realized something that really puts it all into perspective.

We are incredily tiny, I mean really tiny, we have no idea how tiny we are in relation to all these forces in our world. The sun, sirus, the galaxy, the suns speed thorugh the universe, the distances we can’t even imagine, the powerful forces we can’t see like magnetism, gravity and proton belts and the whole works.

So when I think about all the stuff I have learned, mans attempts to solve the big problems of the world thorugh their ideas, some even using the power of the state (it’s military, police, lawmaking etc) and money I am taken aback at the arrogance we have, some without knowing it, to think we can solve big problems of wars, death, poverty, climate changes, desertification, forest management, water management, injustice, simply by giving power to another group calling themselves government, and using a few tools designed by scientists and researchers like cloud seeding, changing the amount of a trace gas like co2, or controling the weather in ways to avert perceived disasters or population control, increasing buaracracies, and forcing policy and rules on people for the sake of some problem when they don’t even understand the problem, the physics and how everything was designed, and cant even see beyond our own surroundings or know the difference between a truth and a lie, between justice and injustice, or between moral rights and wrongs and are on this planet a short time, and unable to even control our own thoughts very well, how in the name of anything sensible can we think we can do anything to alter these forces when we can’t even keep ourselves from dying or getting sick?

what has possessed even scientists and researchers who can see alot more about the forces of nature then us who can see the design, complexity, and the minimal impact we have on controling them, to even think they can control even the most rudimentary physical laws, let alone a complex system like the earth’s climate, land and water use, and massive problems humans have faced for thousands of years? wouldnt it be prudent to recognize our limitations and the need for something greater than ourselves? wouldnt it be good to humble ourselves and ask for help? Should we not now see the importance of jesus words when he said pray this way (our father in the heavens may your name be santified (hallowed) let your kingdom come, let your will take place as in heaven also upon the earth.)?

what say you?

what does it mean to be a jehovah’s witness?

 

what does it mean to be one of Jehovah’s witnesses? have you ever wondered that? I mean don’y you see us going door to door? maybe some of the conventions we have in various places around the world many see us and wonder, don’t you? so what does it mean then?

Just think about the name, Jehovah witness, what does a witness do? what exactly do they use witnesses for in court for example? tell what you know or what you have seen? what have I seen that I testify to? That Jehovah name has been tainted, muddied, reproached, blasphemied, and that he has been treated unjustly and he has been blamed for all the suffering the world has/is suffering, without anyone giving him a fair hearing as one would expect in a court of law.

when we go door to door we give others the chance to hear his side of the story, the chance to benefit from his loving concern, to see how he will end the suffering that he is blamed for, why he as allowed this suffering, and how we will benefit in a way that we would just be awestruck by. By striving to speak on his behalf we endeavor to help people see where the real problem lies and how Jehovah has not done to us what we deserve or left us in a lurch. we show by our obedience to his moral laws we show how his way is the best way to solve mankinds problems, to end the violence done to each other.

by remaining neutral to politics we show to others that we do not condone nor support the wars, and violence done in the name of saving people from tyranny while at the same time causing tyranny, and our hands remain clean before Jehovah and honest hearted people, we don’t share in the blame of those in power who break Jehovahs laws in the name of some end that appears good when in fact it is not. we show by our actions that we desire to see an end to all wars, violence, death and suffering. we show that we recognize jehovahs right to rule over the earth due to his creatorship, and we recognize that man’s efforts to end this violence cannot come through any of man’s efforts no matter how noble the motives.

we show others by what we say and do that we recognize the affects of Satan and his demon hordes use of governments, the economic system and religious institutions to do his bidding. How satan is behind all the false called knowledge, evolution,  enviromentalism,government being a righteous entity, and religion being a solution to a growing moral problem and materialism being a good thing. he is behind the wars, violence that is done in the name of some good or benevolent purpose.

we show that we want to see mankind united, in peaceful conditions where death is no more, that we trust that Jehovah’s way and motives are pure and above reproach. and endeavor to witness to this fact for those who care to listen. Far be it for anyone who loves Jehovah and his neighbor to want anything less, and to testify how that will be accomplished without using violence to achieve it.

we witness to the fact that Jehovah being our creator has the right and our best interests at heart to determine what is good and bad. He is the one who has the right to give life or take it away when someone is incorrigable. we recongize that wonderful qualities he has and try to share that with others, those qualities of love, justice, wisdom and power which are all balanced.  His quality of justice, wisdom and power did not motivate or require him to create life, his love did.

He doesn’t need us, he was complete, he lacked nothing, he created us to share life, not to create slaves, he was quite capable of doing all for himself without much effort if any at all. satan would have people believe that Jehovah’s motives are impure that he wants to enslave and being waited on hand and foot when it is satan who wants exactly that. He has used false religion and tv, movies and newspapers and magezines to give a wrong impression of the kind of person Jehovah is.

so I testify before all who read this Jehovah is not responsible for the injustices in the world he does not force people to love him, and does not force people to use their free will properly, he does hold an accounting for how we use this life he has given us, he will determine who is deserving of mercy and who is not, satan does not do this, he has no compassion or love, he never shows mercy he is limited by Jehovah to how much he can do as he was limited to how he could test job. If satan had full reign to do as he pleases he would of destroyed all mankind long ago, and no Jehovah’s witness would ever exist as he would stamp them out immediatly. but Jehovah’s love for mankind and eventually salvation by him would not allow him to let satan to do so. Satans contends not that Jehovah is not all powerful, but that he doesn’t have our best interests at heart, that he doens’t rule with totally unselfish motives, when in fact it is satan who is called a manslayer, who is the accuser and slandering of others whether man or angel or Jehovah.

do we do these things perfectly? absolutly not. we stumble many times but as the bible indicates the righteous may stumble many times but certainly will get up and continue on. Jehovahs approval is not contingent on being perfect. it is contengent on loving him and obeying him to the fullest extent we are capable of.

so if you have wondered, wonder no more. this is just the tip of the ice berg but should be enough to give you the idea what we are all about.

thanks for reading. have a wonderful day okay?

crowning glory of creation

this is to remind all you human beings out there that your are special. contrary to what many in positions of power wish you to believe that your somehow a cancer on the planet or a virus, listen up.

after Jehovah created the light to hit the earth (clearing of the cloud that blocked it) he created the beautiful blue ocean and all it’s wonderou creatures in there that fasinate almost all people, the beautiful whales that humans are so intrigued with, the interesting creatures that float, swim, jump, and twirl in the ocean depths. the wonderful relationship of killer whales with trainers to the grace of flying over the waves to saving swimmers in distress, dolphins are like people with fins. birds that skirt the waves and those that fly for days on end without touching the earth, who sleep on the wing.

hummingbirds that fly 500 miles nonstop over the gulf of mexico. butterflies that are so many colors it boggles the mind and pleases the eyes. a bright sunset over a crystal blue lake, animals that walk the earth and quake it with each step, crittors of every size and color and shape, who we say arn’t they cute!

flora and fauna of every shape, color, size, texture, growth pattern that you can imagine is here on terra. the wonderful variety of dogs, horses, cats, birds, goats, sheep, cattle, little crittors we call pets, are all pleasing .

yet one important element is missing. flora and fauna are alone, they have a need for something else, something that will care for them, give peace,keep them in bounds,  and guide them in their way and respect them in their travels. they cannot make the earth a paradise on their own a place of peace and abundance of food and drink without want. who could this one thing be? who would be the perfect steward of this place called planet earth?

Well who did Jehovah decide that should be? “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness and let him have in subjection the fish of the sea the flying creatures of the heavens, and the domestic animals, and all the earth,and every moving animal upon the earth.”  Gen 1:26

Yes, you and me, that is right, he made man in his own likeness, his qualities we reflect if we choose to allow it, choose to do so. he says he has given the earth to the sons of men. he did not create it simply for nothing but created it to be inhabited, not just by animals, sure animals give him glory but man (this includes the ladies) is his crowning earthling  creation. there is none better. we are the ones who can make his heart glad or make it sad.

we are his crowning glory. we have capacities animals will never enjoy. we are the special someone the earth needed.  when we manifest love for others, righteousness, for justice, and for the planet we call home, we manfest the qualities of our creator who made this earth just for us. when we worship Jehovah as he is meant to be all will be perfect again. we are supposed to be here. this is our home and our inheritance from our loving father. Dont ever feel man is a parasite on this planet some call gaia. gaia is a myth.

obesity and the nanny state

check out my other blog post on blogger at the link above. thought some might like to read it.

rosa byrd (like the new nickname?)

time proves it with regard to obesity

funny how you go through life thinking your on the right track. take obesity, this problem seems to be incurable. sure the symptoms can be managed if you can stand chronic hunger and cravings and don’t mind having to force exercise when all you want to is sit around because you have no energy because your chronically hungry and dieting all the time. you know you cant stop your diet as you’ll gain weight every one knows this. once on a diet always on a diet.

funny still is if the “experts” advice doesn’t work how the patient is blamed rather than the advice. very few treatments I have ever heard is the patient blamed for the treatments failure. it boggles my mind how people can be so right and wrong at the same time.

I listen to the struggles of dieters on the internet in forums and I am amazed at how they struggle, blame themselves and don’t understand why they struggle where as many who are lean naturally do not seem to have to do anything, eat whatever they crave and yet never give diet a thought. it amazes me too how diet and obesity is still considered a moral problem rather than a health problem. it also amazes me the hate people seem to display if someone is eating “immorally” in front of them. how the eyes glare, how the remarks sometimes flies and how disgusted they feel when they see obese people eat. even among friends who think they are helping but rather are really hurting their friendship. been guilty of this myself tho not mostly in the obese category but others.

it is a hard habit to break this judging others on food issues. it took a remark from a family memeber to show me I was doing  just that. that made me stop. I didn’t want to harm I was just curious on a obessesive behavior of eating that I didn’t understand, they saw it as judging.

life is just to dang hard and to dang frustrating and sometimes demoralizing to the hilt, so these petty things are just that petty. it is time we concentrate on being kind to one another even strangers and concentrate on upbuilding them rather than tearing down after all this boat is rocking pretty hard and we should concentrate on holding on, not throwing people to the sharks.

I spend to much time trying to correct my health parameters like obesity for one, and some others and yet I am mocked and tossed to the sharks everytime only to reboard the boat and repeat. It is like a bad addiction or something that I cant seem to shake. time has shown me that these problems will not be corrected in the right way until Jehovah corrects it either now or in his new world paradise on earth. wish it was otherwise I see others succeed I follow their way of doing it best I can yet it doesn’t work for me despite following it for long periods.

funny how time is a teacher, it sets you straight when your on a wrong path it shows you that you must choose a different path, in the meantime I stand at a crossroad waiting until I find that differnt path. also in the mean time while I wait I need to concentarte on mroe important spiritual health rather than physical. I need to stop worrying about my weight issues and concentrate on health issues and being a better person. this my friend is extremely hard to do. of course most addictions usually are.

peace

PEACE,  aw that elusive thing people have strived for milliniums. this peace, it is so rare no one really understands what it is. The united nations is described as an instrument to achieve peace in the world, in 1986 they declared that year the year of peace and security, yet what is peace? who actually experiences it as it was meant to be? 

most would define it as no more wars. But I ask you if all the armies went home and all guns put up in the sheds would then peace be ours? How do we acheive this elusive thing called peace? will the united nations achieve it? will the political rulers achieve it, will the religious rulers achieve it, will free enterprise achieve it?

is peace only absence of war? would not peace be an absence of violence and force of every kind? what is violence? a dictionary I read said it is the violation of the rights of another. who decides what rights we have, us? God? the state?

Jesus spoke about a peace he leaves with us, happy are the peaceable, those who pursue peace. These who like jesus do not ever initiate force against another. who would benefit from this peace? everyone, who would profit from peace? everyone. who hates peace? those who profit from war. who profit from war? few do, who is harmed by wars? everyone else.

list of wars is almost endless, war on drugs, war on poverty, war on obesity, war on cancer, war on illiteracy, war on terrorism, war on _______ fill in the blank. man’s whole existance has been nothing but war. wars to spread democracy, war is peace, that contradiction that seems so right in the eyes of so many who do not understand what peace truly is because if they did then ‘war is peace’ would be seen as oxymoronic.

live each day in peace, with your neighbors, with your boss, with your family, practice peace, pursue it, each day practice it and as you do it the more you will see peace is the answer to problems not war. you wont be so quick to exclaim “there ought to be a law” “tax it” “send in the troops.”

wars.moral decay

I used to think of war as soldiers and weapons going in a making a miserable, bloody mess of themselves and others. I have come to realize  this war is actually quite narrowly expressed.  wars are basically conflicts of interests with a desire to have your interests first regardless of harm caused to the opposing side.

I define wars as the initiation of force/violence not self defense from self same.

wars are expressions of me first I want what you have and will take it by force if necessary. example, our money system is a prime example of a quiet war. this is how it works, to destroy and oppresse us at every turn. you get a loan, I get a loan, the guy next door gets a loan, to buy necesary stuff (obviously because wages are not high enough) like a house (who has 50-100 thousand lying around for the most part)or a car or other big ticket items. problem: right away  there is interest attached to it, your paying for the privelege of using money someone else created out of thin air (not fair! I scream) this same interest is not created, doesn’t exist, there is only principle.

so how do you and I pay this interest? we war against each other, you and I compete for the same job or income, so I have to basically, tho legally, fight for  part of your principle and you have to legally fight for part of my principle. we have to compete to see who gets to not only pay their principle but the interst  which leaves someone not enough to pay their principle let alone the interest. see my point we are in economic warfare, which ultimatly means survival period. this is economic or usury slavery.

how does such a system benefit the money makers and enforcers? well they get us to work harder and harder with little returns and they can attach taxes (which you need their fiat currency or digits to pay forcing you into their system) to everything, and yes, interest to practically everything. hence they collect their hefty unearned, unjust, riches  no matter who wins this economic race as they are the recepients of the taxes/interst derived from the sweat, blood and tears o the productive class.

but in order to keep the game going you have to regulate everything to your advantage, monopolize as it were, which is where governments come into play, you have to restrict resources like food, jobs, wages, benefits, to keep people clamoring harder to get these things. you have to create in people a desire to have things, to strive for that new car, that new and improved computer, you have to keep that treadmill going and keep the productive just motivated enough to stay on it even tho it is going faster and faster and they are becoming more and more exhausted and more and more frustrated and unhappy.

if this is not a war I don’t know what is. a war on your rights to be left alone, to trade as you will, to satisfy your needs as you see fit, provided you do not violate anothers rights, to benefit from your own labors, to help others as you wish which brings happiness, not forced charity called taxes to welfare. right not to be forced into slavery or involuntary servitude to the benefit of a few at the top.

this my friend is just the tip of the iceberg of wars for profit. this is a sign of the moral decay of people, they say the body rots from teh head down, if the governments, leaders, trendsetters, teachers,  etc are morally bankrupt then what will happen to the rest of the society? wont’ they eventually see that being a moral individual is just to taxing, literally and figurativly, to exhausing, to unfair in this immoral world? won’t they just swim with the tide instead of against it?

more about this stuff later.
