"Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these "THINGS" will be added unto you as well."
The tree of life is the goal for the Pagans. It will be denied, just as it was denied at Babel. Osiris/Nimrod/Apollyon was circumcised the last time.
The next time is the abyss. Why follow him there if a better choice exists?
I'm not following anybody. You are the one following some ancient text, I am following my own heart and the wisdom I absorb during prayer and
meditation, and the path that opens up based on my own life experiences. I don't have a plan, I'm just trying to evolve and gain something from every
moment of this existence.
I'm not sure if you think living this life to the fullest is the same as seeking the tree of life, but if it is, then I'm guilty, and I'm guilty
because God told me that was my purpose in this life. I talk to God often, and when I am patient and focused enough to listen, I get profound wisdom
from it. I know, with 100% certainty that God wants me to stop wasting a single second of this life, and he wants me to experience it to the fullest.
I also know God is not interested in worship. I'm not wasting any of my time worshiping an omnipotent being. That is a worthless use of my time,
why would an omnipotent being have such a frivolous desire like worship?
I bet I could sit and tell you stories you wouldn't believe. Just opening one's self up to infinite possibilities is a miracle in and of itself. I
had 2 NFL players at my father's day bbq yesterday. Total surprise, one is a friend, and he brought over his family, and a friend of his that was in
town. This weekend I also watched a guy get drunk and decide to wrestle an alligator, I watched my 5 year old discover he could actually swim and
lose his fear of the deepend and start jumping off the diving board all by his self. I was surrounded by friends and family from 11 a.m. until 1 a.m.
last night, and then I went inside and had outstanding, porn star style sex with my little trophy wife until 2:30, and I was up at 5 to go running,
and at work by 8, where I learned my extremely moody boss broke up with her boyfriend this weekend, and I spent the day getting my ass chewed as the
substitute male for her boyfriend. I survived, barely, and came home, and grabbed the kids, and we visited my buddy that is battling cancer, and come
to find out he hadn't eaten all day, so the dinner we brought to him was a huge pick-me-up, and now he is feeling a little better, and now I'm home
typing this, and getting ready to watch a movie on the couch with my wife and kids.
I don't know how rewarding your Sunday was, but I think my last 30 hours or so had more love, and more random life experience than most people get in
their entire year, and I didn't have to go to church or read a bible, or visit a lodge, or open a history book. All I had to do was live life to the
fullest. I smoked a Liga Provida #9, I drank Armenian Cognac, and I chewed some Levi Garrett, and I enjoyed my friends and family and life.
My heaven is here and now, and my hell is here and now, and my goal is to experience the hell out of them, embrace every moment of joy and pain and
strangle the life out of it, and evolve enough to become closer to God and join that spirit when this flesh rots away. I'm not interested in any
carrot vs. stick scenario, and I'm not interested in 3000 year old text, and I don't give a damn what any preacher has to say about anything. I know
what God tells me, and I go where God leads me, and one day I will be one with God. We are all Gods.
I know your Bible has that ridiculous Abraham story, and I know God and I talked about that particular story, and God doesn't need me as a friend, and
God doesn't want me as an enemy. God and I have a mutual understanding and respect, and God wants me as a peer, not a servant, and it is my job to
learn to exist as that peer and seek beyond what this flesh limits me to, but in the meantime God wants me to EXIST in all the glory I can exist
Rant over, going to my movie now.
