Ankh, fourth paragraph pls. Can you check?
What do you mean? Can you elaborate?
Checking - yep, they're gone and I've been left in the hands of God alone for better or for worse (can be an even most challenging predicament in so
far as no one really gets off the hook at the most fundamental level).
and if we do live in a non-local, holographic universe wherein lurk various powers and principalities for good and for ill both benevolent and
malevolent who are capable of wielding technologies indistinguishable from magic, then they are just as responsible as we are for what we are
projecting, perhaps even moreso since with great power comes much greater responsibility to uphold and honor certain eternal and universal principals
of Civility where Civility may be defined as: Consciously motivated organizational behavior that is ethical in willing submission to a higher power
whereby for every higher power there are higher powers still. unto the very Godhead.
Thus, it is entirely in the realm of possible that God has reserved for us the last laugh at the "devil's" expense where it becomes plainly obvious
that in such a line or hierarchy - the last shall be first and the first, last where what is bound on earth is bound in heaven also ie: as above, so
Thing is they don't expect this kind of performance and/or blowback nor did they see how Jesus might factor into this whole equation as being at one
or at the right hand of the only truly objective observer in the entire universe, who came as much to save us, as to protect us from any predation
whereby it could be said that instead of "eat or be eaten", "here, eat of me instead" became the highest principal.
All good jokes must be told and understood, but it would never occur for the life of them (because the "devil" is blind as a bat, however good might
be their radar) that the ultimate hoodwink and double-bind could have already been perpetrated once and for all time by a "monkey man" at a place
What a terrible predicament to be placed in by one's own hand..
So yeah, I've checked and it's possible to be Morpheus, but only in Christ who came first and who said "and as our father in heaven first sent me,
even so send I, you."
It's very deep, very rich, very mysterious, and very very funny.
Sometimes everything happens for a reason, maybe even all the time.
What we need is more faith, and less fear, until we arrive at that place of fearlessness when Neo (not Morpheus) explodes and the agents flee.
Ah, maybe that was the error you were pointing to.. you see, the joke's also on me and I'm ok with that.
